Y* THE DAILY 1, SHORT STORY BEj'V ,'.,.J . Advice To The Lovelorn. By R. RAY BAKER. \ ^Copyright, 1920, by the McCiure Newspaper Syndicate.) IT Is unlikely that ever another man f held the unique position in a commnnlty that Richard Jerome occn- * , , pled "In Wakefield. 1< |? i Vocationally Richard was a lawyer, t and a good one. A generous practice , had given him a financial status thai e might be termed comfortable, and of late years he had placed certain restrictions opi his legal business wbicb . permitted many spare moments for ' his avocation, which was the mending ' of broken hearts. 11 The avocation paid Richard not a f [ penny, but he performed the work || with a gleam in his eye and joy in F* his heart: for ho loved humanitv and could not bear to 8?e his fellows suffer when a way to alleviate' their , ' troubles was ready to his hand. Never had a lovelorn young man K .^appealed to Richard'ln vain, never had he failed in his assumed role 01 ? Cupid to "get the verdict." His al- * -most uncanny insight Into the ways 1 of women gave him something akin It i to' fame in Wakefield, although it was c a fame that was spread by word of _ mouth and not by newspaper head- 1 I . lines and half-tones. 1 It began when Richard's chum, t ' Anthony Brexton, came to him with d ; tears in his eyes and walled: 'It's all over, Dick. Will you please ' get me a bottle of carbolic aid or an 11 \ equally deadly poison? Isabelle has f f turned me down and life holds nothing t for me now." t Richard had calmly lighted a cornj ! cob pipe, which was so old it looked " ., as' If it might have been the pattern ; after which all the others were copl- k ;:ed, had settled himself comfortably, ^ and'said: v i\,. "First?before we get this carbolic n acid?let's hear your story. Not that d 1 am curious, but I object to spending F ' ' good money for poison unless its nec- ii /ressary. Remember, I am a lawyer, n :Why not let iye advise you. My fee will not be heavy." Anthony had laughed miserably. h ' "You advise in a love affair; That's f. funny, Dick. Why. you're a confirmed bachelor. You've never been en- ? .gaged, never Jiad a girl Jn your t] |j "Maybe that will give me a better j.' . perspective in the matter," said j, 'Richard. "It won't hurt to try." g Then' he had listened while Anthony i Ided hlB tale of woe, and when it a flntBhed and the latter was hudback In his chair chocking back " and looking like a child that had out of bed early Christmas (ag and found his stocking y, Richard had taken the case linplacontly with: our problem Is easily solved, lie thinks you have proved youraltfcleaa.

He was not handsome, but strength of character was stamped on his face, and this attracted most people he met. ' . One day a yonng man came Into hie office with a listless manner and a heart that was not working right. "My name's Fred Mania," ho said by way of introduction, and cast a sour look out the window at a painter on a scaffold across the street. I vo been living in Wakefield only ?, month, but during that time I've fallen In love with the most wonderful girl in the world. I've taken her about i' Considerably and I've tried desperate- < ly hard to- win her, but she has not responded. I've not yet really propes- d ed because I could tell the time was -not ripe, but she knew what I was t< , driving at and last night she told me A" I could not see her again. I knew 'i ,:gr Either Johnson at college, and when I told him my troubles this morning N he referred mc to you. It seems you patched up a little love'affair for him about a year ago." Mr. Mania did not offer to reveal the. name of his ideal, and Richard did not press him for it. This mid- _ dlo-aged cupld was not curious or meddlesome. He simply - advise! where advice was sought. "MA HmiKt ?h ? >???. ??... ?. uuuui cut O UJU15 jruu OUl, j he aatd. "Remain away from her; | don't try to see her.

If she does It Indicates one of two things?either she 'loves you or she's a flirt. If she's a flirt, you don't want her." A few days later Mr. Mania was *9 " back, looking more woebegone than before. "It doesn't work," he announced, dolefully. "I've done as you advised, .but she might as well be dead as far as any effort she's' mado to so me." It began to look like failure for Rich krd Jerome, love mediator. "Well have to try a new plan," be said alter a pause, during whtch 1 he reeorted to the ancient corncob.

He could not evade the fact that e had come face to face with his first allure, as a Cupid. "In fact," Mr. Mania resumed, she told jne there was one man in his town that she admired and has jved for four years. 'He's rather old or n girl like me," she said, "but I'd amp at the chance to marry him. iome day, perhaps, he'll come my :ay. but if he doesn't I'll never marry t all.'" folhADVErtl OF THE: RLjIM .ty Olive Kobe One ovening Nick and Nancy wei 'hey had been watching Jake do the They had tucked their magical mus he big stone before supper, for they I ay.

For the first time in his strenuous life, he found himself unable to cope with circumstances but from his defiant attitude I could see that his spirit had .not been broken by the misfortunes of the week. His trials had been extreme: First I had disappeared in a most unaccountable way; Chrys had dropp'ed out of sight just as mysteriously; then Bob had vanished! Daddy had been forced to accept a single explanation for all of the cases and it was. a plausible one. His children had been kidnapped by Mexican outlaws, a revolutionary gang at war with the Mexicam government ana having no connection whatever with the inhabitants of the hacienda! That was the lie he had been told. He had no idea that the man whose guest he was, his former business partner and best friend,- was actually at the bottom of the plot. Certeis might conspire to upset nations but he would ncvor harm his friend. So Daddy Lorlmer believed. Kidnapping, however, wsb the fashion of the day in Mexico. Naturally the Hon. James D.
