The spirit of fun behind those twinkling black eyes of hers appealed to him. and the warmth of her laugh made 1 him long for something?something tbat was not in his life. Suddenly the laugh sounded close beside him. He nearly toppled into '. ..the water from the shock it gave him. I' ' He turned quickly to confront CynS thia. a little way off. her eyes bulging over with merriment. After rubbing his eyes to make sure he was seeing aright. Horace smiled forth a greeting. Even the pest of his life was U welcome In that solitude. "Oh, Mr. Sangster, you look so fun ny there," she laughed. "If the girls ^ could only see you in your bare feet!" "Heavens!" Horace tried to hide his feet behind a log. He had forgotten that he had taken ofT his shoes and socks to wade a creek. "Don't be alarmed." she smiled encouragingly. "I am going to take ofT my shoes, too. One can't fish well i. with shoes on. How do you like my a costume?" 1L She was clad in khaki from head to BPfOot, and her hair was hanging in curls r& over her shoulders. He had never realized how beautifully she was before. "Jove! You look peachy." he mur mured* admiringly, qui tuu* he had used the -word "peachy" for the i first time since he had got his degree. That encouraged Cynthia to take a seat beside him. Not that she needed encouragement, for she -would have sat ' - there sooner or later. It did not take L (Horace long to forget that he was a college professor and she was a mere student. Soon they were chatting gayly. I Her home was nearby and she had spent every summer fishing in that stream for years. She led him to a u place where he was "sure to catch [ something, no matter how poor an angler he was." When his luck remained t poor and he still made vain attempts to land a trout. Cvnthia did not fail to laugh at him and assure him that he was as funny as he could be. Somehow it did not bother him to be laughed at out there. The air seemed to have got into his blood and given v him a sense of humor that responded * <to her witty ridicule. He was not long tn catching onto the right way to draw f - in the line, and before the afternoon was over he was catching as many I trout ah Cynthia When they parted ' he had gained her promise to search him out the next day.

He started in the direction she had taken and attempted to ford the stream where he imagined she had crossed. The spot he chose appeared quite shallow from the bank, but as he reached the center, he stepped into a deep hole and sank out of sight. Cynthia looked up just in time and with 3 cry jumped into the water and made for. the spot. When he cams up for the first time she was there to clutch him and a couple of strokes took them to safety. His body remained limp In her grasp, and as 3he dragged him over to the bank and placed him on the grass, the pallor of j his cheeks alarmed her. He lay quite ! still.

And in the midst of gayety, let her pause to pray for the wounded. Unless the women live this war daily in ways that hurt, they cannot apreciate what their armies are doins and they will not try to do their share. The faster America works and the better we women work, and the more workers there are among us. the sooner victory -will come. The most enthusiastic women have already found jobs. Now it is time for the shy ones, and for those who have never worked for money before, to undertake their special bit American energy, increasing ounce by ounce, is driving the Hnn over the Rhine, and scaring him into overtures of peace. Every woman who adds her mite of energy to this great push, hastens the homecoming of her man. A call from Martha Palmer interrupted my meditation. Martha has found me a useful job. I think. She's planning a "Cheer Club." She says that the younger women get along better without their men than the older women, and that It should be the special duty of war brides to find and cheer up the lonely mothers of soldiers.

Made dishes and left-overs require extra time, trouble, and skill?but they save both money and food. Cooking tuereiore oecomes an essenuai -war industry of first importance. Meat is the most expensive item of the diet. Reduce it to a minimum in wartime menus and buy the less expensive cuts that require careful cookins and combine well with vegetables and in made dishes. Eat more fish, both dried and fresh. Potatoes, turnips. carrots, cabbage and all root vegetables are now at their best and cheapest. Use them. String beans, beets, cucumbers, sweet corn, eggplant and spinach are still on the market. Eggs and butter are high but still are less extravagant than meat. Do not serve eggs as a separate dish. Reserve them for cooking. Use vegetable fats and oils in cooking and butter for the table only. Economize strictly on sugar. Sunday. Breakfast ?
