ggt- Newspaper Syndicate.)
K - e-vtJRING the spring vacation, Tom
KB I 1 Sherrold took an auto trip along
lb.' the Hudson. He had Intended
i' to spend a day or two at the home ot i
his roommate, Phil Sharp, but he
; gjF' found on Inquiry over the telephone ;
Bg. that Phil had left Kingston the cvehf?:
lng before for a visit to Brooklyn, so
Bfc: he decided to pass through without
BBT; itopplDg.
As he sped up one of the long ;
; winding hills leading a way from the ,
; town, he spied a girl on the road
& I ahead. She was standing dlsconsoHV
lately beside a trim roadster which
Rg(; had evidently misbehaved. Tom
| if . threw on his brakes, brought his own
[ftl ' ear to a standstill and dofTed his hat.
H?."7. "Is there anything I can do?" he
UK- asked.
The girl turned to him with a pair
&'# of grateful wyes; they were brown
tiki eyes which reminded him somehow
1 W.. of some ono he had dreamed about
? ; years ago.
"I don't know what's the matter
With the old car," she said petulantIwj

Ess* absolutely nothing about the mechanism
of a car, but he opened the hood
Bggjjr and looked wisely Into the compllcat- ,
<f? ed engine. He tried the self-starter,
'/ but It didn't work. He opened the
hood agin'touched a nut or two and
then tested the starting apparatus,
but still there wero no results. Flnw
ally, he nodded his head as If he
jr.' knew all about It.
"Tho differential's busted." he announced.
"I'm afraid you'll have to
It' send for a regular mechanic."
? "Ohl" She appeared distressed.
I- . . "That means I'll have to go back to
p Kingston."
Tom ventured a suggestion.
"I was jUBt thinking of going back
that way myself," he said. "You
might just as well ride with me."
She smiled at him frankly.

ula continuing her story. "Some ]
tght reporter had learned I was PauNewton,
the girl who was sudden- hurled
from wealth and position to
nury and want.' i
"The headlines were even more ter- !
lie than when my father and moth- i
died. One of them read: i

"Then followed a lurid account of

"The account ended with a rehash
my poor father's catastrophe and
pathetic story of my mother's death d
my hurried trip home. Even the

I'm halt Inclined to accept your Invitation."
Tom sprang Into the driver's seat.
"Come on In," he Invited. "It will
be perfectly all right, because I know
someone who lives in Kingston."
"Oh, you do?" She appeared Interested.
"Yes," he continued, as she made
no movement to enter the car. "I'm
a great friend of Phil Sharp. He's
my roommate at college."
She looked surprised.
"Phil Sharp?" she repeated.
"Yes, do you know him?"
She hesitated a moment, and then
smiled.
"Never heard ot him. Does he live
In Kingston?"
"Why, yes." He appeared puzzled.
"I thought everybody knew Phil."
a ma/ uave met mm. ~ one spose
lowly, as It trying to recall the
young gentleman in question. "What
does he look like?"
"He has brown hair and brown
eyes?" He paused. "Looks something
like you. to tell the truth."
Tho girl shook her head.
"No," she announced, "I don't
know him."
"You ought to," Tom spoke enthusiastically.
"He's a mighty goodlooking
chap."
"Was that meant for a compliment?"
She smiled amusedly.
"Yes. it was," Tom answered
truthfully. "But I'd like to have you
know him because he might ask you
to a college dance."
"Has he a sister?"
"Yes. I've never met her, but Thll
seems to think she's a peach. He's
going to have her down to the senior
ball next week."
"What is her name?"
s "Althea."
"Oh!" Her face lighted with recognition.
"I know Althea Sharp. Met
her one day at a Country club tea."
"Did you liko her?"
"FaSrly well."
"irhat kind of a girl is she?"
"Yru seem to be immensely interested
it. her."
"I am. You see, we have five
dances together at the ball. I'hll has
asked her because he has to, but he
likes the girl I am going to bring. So
he's going to shove his sister off on
me whenever he can."
"I don't think you'll like her very
nuch. She's a college girl, and rather
prim and sedate."
"And I have five dances with her.
Oh. well!" He smiled. "I wish Phil
had asked some one else; some one
like you, for instance."
The girl changed the subject.
"Do you want to take me to Kingston
now?" she asked.
"Surely; Jump in."
Tho roadster sped onward. That
ride was one of the most enjoyable
occasions Tom could remember. They
talked about numerous things; he
told her of the college, of Phil, and of
the dances; she told him of Kingston ,
and something of the people she
knew. The garage was reached all
too quickly, and the girl jumped out.
"I'm very much obliged to you,"
Bho said, offering her hand. "The
man in the garage will take me
back." '
Tom refused to be dismissed so
easily. I
"Aren't you going to tell me your
name?" he asked.
She hesitated.
"Why, yes, I guess so," she said
dually. "My name Is Mary Doe."
"And your address?"
"Just Kingston."
"Do you mind If I -write to you?"
"I'd rather you wouldn't. Maybo
some time, if you come to Kingston
with Mr. Sharp, we'll meet again.
Cood-bye."
She waved to htm and disappeared ,
Into the garage.
All that day and the next that brief
ride to Kingston was uppermost in
Tom's mind. Upon returning to college,
he cornered Phil Sharp and ask- (
ed him about Mary Doe. But Phil
was unable to give him any Informs- ,
lion. .
"I never heard of her," he said. \
"What does Bhe look like?"
Brown eyes, brown hair, a soft ,
voice and a white Bkirt," Tom raved.

PRIZE GOWNS EXPECTE1
PUTS A>fEF
Here arc two gowns expected to help
place America first In fashion.
A prize of $1,000 was awarded for
each gown by Commodore James Pugh,
Chicago' millionaire sportsman. In a
contest to stimulate ambition In the
American girl who has talent for designing
and try to transfer the "first
In fashions" title from Paris to the
United States.
"There is more creative talent In
the United States than in any other
country." says Pugh, "but our girls
have little incentive to develop their
genius.
"Next year 1 will offer $10,000. then
$50,000, If that much Is neoessary to
awaken American women to the opportunity
that is theirs."
Mrs. E. B. Crone, of Chicago, won
$1,000 offered for afternoon gowns.
The frock was palest yellow broad"MuBt
be some one now in town. |
I'll ask Althea -when she comes
down."
So Tom was forced to be satisfied
until the senior ball rolled around.
He waited on the porch of the fraternity
house while Phil went to the
train to meet his sister. He heard
the engine pull away, and then
watched idly as the collego men and
their fair guests came strolling across
the campus.
^Suddenly he sat bolt upright,
amazement In his eyes, for around
the corner of Blair Hall walked Phil
Sharp, and beside him was the mystic
girl he had met at Kingston. He
watched them, half unbelievingly,
until they reached the porch.
"My sister, Althea," Phil announced.
Tom took her outstretched hand,
and the girl smiled up at him.
"I believe we have met before,"
she said.
"We surely have; but you told me
your name was Mary Doe."
"I told you a lib." soli answered.
"I wanted to surprise you when you
Baw me here. Are you sorry?"
"Sorry!" Tom's heart leaped rather
crazlly. "It's the best thing that's
happened to mo in years. And." he
added thoughtfully, "I'm golug to
ask Thil to give mo five more
dances."

| HEALTH HINTS ||,
???-*^???-Jj
Dirt; hands are dangerous! Clean
hands are a health measure of first Importance
while dirty ones are a public
menace as well as a private disgrace.
Consider the typhoid carrier. He
Is, perhaps, a careless person who
has been In contact with a typhoid
patient, whose discharges are lull of
active germs of the disease.
They easily contaminate his hands'
and the things about him. Prom him
or the infected articles other hands
pick up the germs and paBs them on
to foods or things or persons.
Tho same Is true of the spread of
tuberculosa germs. From the pa
tiont's mouth to his hands and then'
on to other hands. The very fact that
Americans nave ine giaunanus i in lilt
Increases the danger ot disease
spread In this wajr.
It Is not always pleasing to consider.
(or instance, the possible unclean
habits and hands of the waiter and
cook who servo your meal at noontime.
Consider too that the postman may
wet his finger on his tongue before
shuffling your mall, but you do no',
sea that or even think of It when you
are looking for a letter.
Because of the fact that so many
people bavo to live crowded together
In our cities and come Into close relation
in each other's service, it Is
vital that each should practice extreme
care In keeping clean hands.
Those who have children cannot do
better than to hammer Into them such
routine of personal neatness, that
their future relations shall not menace
their fellows.
