If (IK you don't like the company I keep? the door Is not locked,"' * Anne said defiantly. Hayden ewore Inwardly. "It will notj need to be locked?againet me.

With a ceremonious bo*- he; walked steadily toward the''door, it burst open when he was two feet from | It, thrusting him back In the room. As! ?. h0 straightened he saw fronting him ri' wlldrose fate, with star eyes, blue as! the sky, now full of Innocent concern. | with red lips that cried, "Oh. have ij hurt you? 1 am so sorry?It was very1 heedless of me.". ' "Don't cry, Phil?Xlr. Hay den was! just leaving?else 1 should .present | him,' Anne said with a smile of softi ^fcjgllce. Hayden stared. So this wasj Puillippa Sands, of whom he had heard : such tales. An audacious flirt, cvcni hinted at as co-respondent In a pend-| tag divorce, he had felt more than jus-i ; tifled In begging Anno to have done with her?Anne, who was like a sister' to him, only dearer " "I believe In omens," he said, facing about. "Therefore, I shall not go unless you Insist on it " His eyes ask- i ed for mercy. Anne was loth to grant I it; 1t hurt dreadfully to have him say 1 such things of Phil?Phil, whom she' ( knew in her own heart to lie as i leanj I 1 and honest as daylight yet unhappily It dowered with a charm she was too in i nocent to comprehend. Men felt it?j i | whether or no. Phil was specially dead-! \ 1/ to the married, through being so|. refreshingly unlike the average ma-| tron, at the same time so fui of child ' likb appeal. "Stay?if your 'pressing business- ' i can wait," Anne said, as ungraciously; ' ! as hospitality would permit. Phil! opened her blue eyes wider than ever j She felt the spiritual tension. Had L Anne quarreled with this big master- i ' ful sweetheartlie must be her'j sweetheart, since there was no one' else?Phil could not conceive Iter dear! ( 1 Anne unsought. She greeted him pret- ( tally, talked smilingly for ten minutes.I then caught up a hook and ran away.!, I Saying uvcr un auumuci, i .... ill.. in | j get it?wouldn't sleep a wink tonight1, if I did not find out Just how the end-i came.

Anne looked at him steadily. !' "Why?" she asked "Phil is?just'i the same. I told you she had been' shamefully lied about. You stood in i awe of Mrs. Grundy until you saw| her. ' "Are you Jealous like those others? " 1 Hayden Hazarded. Anne laughed!' scornfully. 1 "I don't know how to be." she said. ' "Not of anybody. Least of all Philllppa. You saw how I resented your i slurs. Stil. I am a little curious." ( "As to what?" said Hayden. ; t "Why beauty excuses," said Anne t with a dry chuckle, flayden flushed. I "It may reasonably excuse." he said. ( "And that with nothing ulterior.

I Ha li sending them to me and hs lays, "I think, Margie, you can me Ice ] something ot these stories, something other readers will enjoy." I You know and 1 know, little bo-is, i the one thing In all this world thai i can never be commonplace Is life. It i we think some one we know is li^iag ' a commonplace existence, it is because 1 we do not know about that person's 1 lite. If we think our own lives are com- i monplace it is because we are either i too stupid to appleciate it or, throu^a egotism or selfishness, we fall to get < the right perspective. I Nothing that is so full of possltlll- I ties as life can be otherwise than col- 1 orf-tl. Some one has called death the i gn it adventure?perhaps it is the I ' great and eliminating one of the series we call lite. Pst also said something in his letter that disturbed me a good deal. "Alice Is not very well, Margie." he wi Me, "and I am worrying a lot about whet:-.. Sometimes I think she would be "ntter if she could get away for a little while?I don't think she is qu'te happy ih having nothing to do. Some 1 times I think I'll hare to get sick no she can take care of me. "She went over to see Mollie and hfonew baby this morning, and I ex pect to find neither Mollie nor the baby have been properly taken care of at the hospital when 1 get home tonight.

Hayden was for going away, but Pbllllppa flung open the gate, darted through It and rushed upon her friend, crying: "Don't you dare cut roses for anybody.: slater Anne?remember, I want all of them when I go." "You are not going," Anne said, snuggling Phil in the hollow of her arm "Instead you will stay?for my wedding.

It is responsible for plague and ith er infections. It causes an economic loss estimated at from 9115,000,000 to $50,000,000 annually in the United States. Rats eat almost all of the foods that human beings eat?fruits, vegetables, , butter, cheese, eggs, and an endless variety of similar foodstuffs, enabling them to thrive almost anywhere that I these products are available. Ordinarily rats breed faster thar. they are destroyed. It is estimated mat in most cities there are as many rats as there are people, and In the very thickly populated rural districts, it is said that there is a rat for every acrt of ground. Since they seek their food mostly at night very few people realize the Immense numbers of these rodents that are fed at the expense of the community. The best way to destroy rats Is to cut off their food supplies. This may he done by rat proofing buildings and keeping garbage in tightly closed metal containers. They may be trapped and poisoned, but cutting off the food supply 1b the surest and most effective method of exteijnination. Some idea of the expense connected with the maintenance of ratB may be leaned from the fact that a full grown rat consumes aout two ounces of grain daily, from 40 to 60 pounds a year.

The habit of handwashing before eating should be so deeply ingrained in the child that it will not tolerate inadequate faciliUes in the home or later in the workshop. Those were points made in tnc course of a plea for medical iaspectiou in all BChools by Dr. Haven Emerstn, Commissioner of Health of New York city. The plea w-as made before 2000 school principals end others. "We want every school child examined by a competent physician annual ly." ' declared Dr. Emerson. "The more this Is done on the request of the parent, at the parent's expense, by the (amily physician, the more permanent will be the results. "We also want every teacher examined annually and her every illness accurately reported. "We want children so to learn the fundamental laws of personal hygiene that they can protect themselves against Industrial hazards after leaving school. We want children to tuvo so thorough an understanding of the physical damage from alcohol and narcotic drugs?beer, tea, coffee, and tobacco?that even the inertia of their home and the civic environment wi/1 not detract their habit. "The graduating diploma should oe a certificate of physical as well as men tal preparedness to continue to leain and serve. "We look forward to the time when graduation will be a privilege with held until the pupil can present a clean record as to physical fltness and an understanding of the rudiments of personal hygiene sufficient to protect him in later life."
