MAPES iwys referred to |\/l her two Bokharai and the Royal Buluchlstin as "the rugs that Dustln ate up' and lest any one who heard her might surmise that Dustln wag s sort of carpet moth, she would go on to explain how on that Aug. day, a half dozen years before. Dustln had first come up her p'. pular-llned -driveway staggering and stooping under the load of the rugs. He approached her like any other peddler and proeeecded to open his pack before her as she and the golden haired Llda eat stringing beans lor dinner. But right from the first Mrs. Maples always insisted she could see ? ?. >k,n m ?omBthlne different in ibi. Dustia'i There was honesty and ambition. She knew it from the start. E*. . Mrs. Mapes had always dreamed of ^ possessing Oriental rugs and as the fhpy with amazing glibness eecounted ,# the number of stitches to the square jp Inch in the rugs he showed and dilated K. ot> the antiquity and workmanship of them, she conveted not one, but all of them. "I am very anxious to sell them he told hen. Perhaps I could let you have them at a sacrifice. I am trying f to work my way through college. 1 * . hoped to sell them so I could begin In September, but I guess people aren't buying many Oriental rags In these parts." Mfs. Mapes had heard the tale of the student working his way through iollege so often that there must hsve been something unusually earnest about Dustln's appearanle to have made him rouse her sympathies as he did. For In Jamestown was located .the state college, and self-supporting, industrious, ambitious students were as usual there as rich mens sons were I onusual. . ' "You wanted to enter this year?' She asked, feeling of the silky fineness - Of the rugs before her. "Yes, yes," he faltered. "I am a lit' tie older than the average freshman? If but you see I am alona in tne woria; genuine vegetables dyes all the way > through," he continued more glbly In } hla pr<e ol the Oriental! than in bit pltu of autobiography. "I can let you have the large one for a,hundred dollars?Just what It would cost t;t wholesale. That smaller one could go at fifty. I'll give you the lot for |?00." Mrs. Mapsi triad to conceal the look that must have Indicated her despair even at the thought ol possessing that much ready money. Then the Inspiration flashed through her mind. She gave a atartled look at her daughter?Lida was seventeen then and Just beginning to ezcerclse the elder daughter's privilege of disapproving ol maternal rashness. Mrs. Mapes put Lida's band in hers as 11 thus to suppress any objection that the laughter might feel. "I can't alford to pay you that money lor them," she said. "But I feel that I must have those rugs. How would this scheme strike you? We have a large house here and we are \ near the campus. I could take you in and give you board and lodging lor two years In payment.. You could eat out the price of the rugs. * ,J- ?-- ?onnnrnas n Hf IijlUtt was UUl tti'ia \.\J uui'f.'www W. ... J | :-: confession; I bad a letter from Eliene this mora-, tBS, little book, that has caused met ouch disquiet. It concerus Mollie, dear darling Mollie. It auything happened to Mollie 1 think I could not bear - It. I feel toward her almost as though i She were my child, and she tells me1 I have been mother, sister, confidant 'and friend to her. "You have given me almost all my pleasures, Margie," she said to me just before we started, "and you are the Ofily person in all the world that 1 can talk to freely." Of course, I could never be as confidential with Mollie as 1 have been witn you. and that is the reason why I think every woman should keep a diary. It is a great safety valve. It kaeps us from telling other people tilings that ofttlmes we regret afterward. "I don't want to be sad or sorry," said a woman of great poles to me once. "I never tell my moit exciting experiences, nor my most Interesting thoughts to anyone, for you are sure to fttfhtm back some day In a way that will bring you great sadnees and make you very sorry you told." \i But very few women, little book, are sufficient unto themselves. I expect In over thousands of years ot more or less dependence we have learned to tell someone our troubles and our joys. 1 said this to Jim Edle once and he aid, "Perhaps the primitive woman I told toes* luue tales 01 ner aauy existence to make conversation for her *0M and master when he came home nn the battle or the chase. The modan woman, It she be clever, does not do this. She tells her husband as little as he does her," he added cynically, "I notice while husbands and wives tall their secrets to wives and hashuds they are usually somebody else's wives and husbands." 1 wonder if Jim meant that or did he Just say It to be funny. Goodness, if I were talking to anyone but you, little book, the person would be sure to think I did not really have much interest in Mollie after all. Ellene writes: "I never saw any man so ssemlnclv Jlltraugh. er the approaching birth I at a child -- is Chad H&tton.

Much depends upon the care It retie grasp of surprise, and then, so far from disapproving of her mother's plan, she clapped her hands with glee at the prospect. She, too, had ambitions toward an Oriental-rugged abode. Dustin was embarrassed, especially because he knew that the goldenhaired, blue-eyed girl was watching him intently. He hated to reject the offer. "I am afraid that wouldn't go very > OF A WIFE " 1 happen" when'we mean only one thing will happen?death?) "I think," the letter continues, "if Mollie should die Chad would kill himself and the child. Poor chap, he has bad a rather sad life, has he uot? I am sure Mollie is the only woman who could and would understand him.

It is something even Fat doog not know about for before I csme j awsty Pat and Alice told mo how happy j Chad was and how he was surely com-' ing out of his moods. "After all, Margie, whatever is right, i Alice suits me better than even dear Moille could and Mollie Is much better: united to Chad. It isn't such a bad world after ill, is It?"

You see, they left to me by mv grandmother, who? who was a missionary In?in Algeria." "My grandmother was a missionary, too," cried I,ida, again claping her hands, but this enthusiasm did not put Dustin much more at ease. "Yr.ir offer is very kind, but I am afraid?" Mrs, Mapes with her glasses on was inspecting the threads of the reverse side of the rug. Apparently the weave suited her. "Well, then, make it board and lodging for four years.

And bofore giving the poor atndent time to lccept or reject this offer Mrs. Maple* wee dragging the -rug* through the ong French windows that oponeed between the re rinds and the drawing oom of her old fashioned houses. So Dustln Lorrey went to board with the Mapetes and so the romance that was inevitable began between Duitin and Lids. Llda was Just the ort of blue-eyed, golden-haired laslie that might have been a collegetown belle, between the agea of aevsnteen and twenty-three or so, had it n?, V."" tr\r Otl.Hn H<1> tufnr? ft year had pawed ah* was never seen at a college dance or game with any other student than Dustln. However, even Mrs. Mapes never, heard of an engagement between them, and when Dustln became a senior with the flight of four years and other students were emboldened to anounee their engagements to this pretty town girl or the other, Dustln and Llda had no announcement to make. Then after commencement Dustln went away, and then passed those two years in which Mrs. Mapes had nothing to show for her lntereat in the poor student but the two Bokharaa and the Royal Baluchistan. Llda never went to college events after that, but if she ever heard from Dustln, who had obviously won her heart,, it was not by way of the mail that J came to her mother's front door. Per-1 haps there were other ways of re-: celalng messages from the man. who had, apparently to Jamestown gossips, deserted her. But if there were no one know of it in Jamestown but Llda. Strangely enough, on that other day in another August, Llda and her mother were again stringing beans for dinner. Only Llda this time was twenty-three and Mrs. Mapes had grown so used to owning oriental rugs that she had a certain sort, of pity for those of her neighbors who possessed none of their own. It was this feeling, rather than any actual Joy in her own possession, that seemed to recompense her for her kindness to the thankless student whom she had taken in. Mrs. Mapes had Just gone in the house with the beans and Llda sat listlessly looking out through the poplar-lined driveway. Perhaps she was thinking that it was Just such a day when she had first seen Dustln; perhaps ehe waa actually expecting what eoon happened. The man who presently came up the driveway was the same Duttln Lorrey, but he certainly had none of the itoop that he had on the other occasion. He wae as straight aa an arrow and walked with the sure, quick step that filled Llda'e heart with the assurance that the two years of waiting had all been worm -wiine. She greeted him with outstretched hands and they spoke In low monosyllables. "It's all right then, at last!" she whispered. "Yes, it is better than I had hoped. I've got the job?14,000 a year to start with ,and I have $400 In the bank. I wouldn't come till I had every cent of that. Where's your mother? I want to tell her right away." And just then Mrs. Mapes returned wtih a complaint on her lips. ? "LIda, why on earth don't you come in and help " Then the words dropped on her lips and she stared back as she saw Dustin before her. 'Well, Dustin Lorrey! It's about time you come back," she said. "Yes, Jusrt time," he agreed. "A week sooner would have been too soon. But I'm ready now, and I'm going to make a confession. Lida knows it. Y'oull have to forgive us for having kept our secret." Then before continuing Dustin inUs?Home Canned test rubbers for quality, er and let boil for 15 minutes.

II duced Mrs. Mapes to be seated and he drew a chair for himself and Llda neaf to her. "It's this way. That day six years ago I came here. I wasn't on. the level. I'd got In a scrape back home In New York. I forgot my father's slgjature to a check, and?well, he let me off, but I drifted away and I thought the only way to make good and pay him back was to get In wrong again. I was working with a crooked bunch of rug swindlers when I came out here. We'were working the game of poor college students. That always touches the hearts of women, you know. We were working from a list of people who had answered a fake oriental rug advertisement of ours?Just to get a list of people who would fall for our rug scheme. You recall that you had answered such an advertisement in a magazin. "When you made that offer to take me in," Dustln continued, looking betwetn phrases back to Llda for encouragement. "I tried to get out 'of it, and then?then I looked at Llda sitting beside you. It came to me that the best thing I could do was to accept your offer and stay right here. So I let the gang know?told them If they made any fuss about the rugs I'd have them all exposed. And so I stayed. The rugs?well, they aren't exactly what I cracked them up to be. They arent antiques and they were smuggled. Lids knew that?I told her. But It was Llda that made me stick it out and finish here before I told you, and when I graduated and left here I told Llda that I wouldn't come back till I bad made good and until I could pay you on the level for that long board bill."
