Raymond Walsh was a puzzle to the
villagers of Wlllgreen. At the age of
twenty-five he was not even giving
marriage n thought. Nothing seemed
to Interest him but books and his
estate. Surah Morley, who had been
postmistress for thirty years (this was
a fact Sarah hoped no one could re
member), kept the village posted on
his activities. The first year he had
been home from college he hud taken
a correspondence course In law, then
he had switched off to short-story
writing and later had studied the keep
ing of bees and the culture of mush
rooms. He was always trying some
thing new, but kept on with the old
things he had learned, adding to his
hobbles almost monthly.
Raymond did not find time for social
life. It did not Interest him In the
least. He attended church every Sun
day morning and sat In the Walsh
pew all by himself.
"What do yon suppose he Is study
ing now?" Miss Temple exclaimed,
breathlessly, as she hurried Into the
meeting of the T. G. C. (This might
have stood for Town Gossip club.)
Every member knew who she meant
but before they could offer n guest

They were only too glad to tell her
■ill about Raymond. After the meet
ing Audrey felt an Irresistible longing
to meet this "oddity" of the village.
The sunshine suggested a stroll in the
direction of the Wulsh estute.
Just as she neared the Walsh estnte
a dog limped towurd her. Struck with
a sudden thought, she coaxed the ani
mal to her and examined Its Injured
foot. It was broken, she felt sure. It
was a big, dirty cur, by all appear
ances, but nevertheless she picked It
up In her arms and walked boldly
through the gate that led to the Walsh
home. She almost let t$ie dog fall as
she caught sight of a tall, good-looking
man weeding In the garden, but re
gained her courage and kept right on.
He dropped his hoe as he caught sight
of her, and ran to meet her.
"What has happened?" he asked.
"My dog has been Injured," she said.
"Whatever will I do? I should not
have brought him from the city with
me. Oh, Is his leg broken? Do not
wiggle so, dear Fldo."
Rnymond smiled faintly, ns he took
the dog from her and rested It on the
'No, It Is not broken," he an
nounced, "but needs attention."
"Poor old Rover—Fldo, I mean !"
Audrey corrected her mistake hur
riedly. She hopêd Raymond had not
noticed It.
"I will carry him to the kennels. I
have hospital equipment there," Ray
mond said, as he looked up from the
Fido seemed quite at home in the
kennels. All he required was the rest
cure, apparently, for Raymond left
him to show Audrey about the place.
"It Is wonderful," she told him en
thusiastically. "Everything Is perfect.
You must be a genius to have a knowl
edge of so many things."
He laughed. "The villagers here
think I am a lunatic. You are the first
outsider to go over this estate for five
years. Nobody takes any interest In
me. *

"I will miss you more than you can
"Will you?" she asked earnestly.
"I certainly will." With an effort
he changed the subject. "You will
take Fldo home with you, of course.
He Is right at home here."
Audrey blushed furiously. "He Is
not really my dog," she confessed. "I
never saw him before that day. He is
just a poor dog I picked up. I wanted
to meet you, and that was the way I
went nbout it."
Raymond was laughing. "I knew It
all along," he, too, confessed. "He Is
my dog—one of the best I own, aren't
you, Jlp, old boy?" The recovered Fldo
danced around his master in acknowl
"You must have thought I was ter

thing you do and sny is sweet. Just

made me. I love you, dear, nnd If It
was not that I knew you hated village
life so much I wouid ask you to be

"Village life ! Whnt difference does

on a wide front. Immediately north of
St. Quentin the British were engaged
by enemy reserves of storming troops,
and the fighting was furious. But the
British succeeded in breaking through
the German lino on the Beauvolr-Wlan
court front and created n salient that
greatly helped in the capture of St.
Quentin by the French.
Between the Oise at La Fere and
that comprised the chief defense
the Aisne the French pushed on t<r
word Laon and succeeded in passing
beyond the elaborate system of xvnter
of the enemy and reaching open coun
try where the tnnks could operate h
advantage. North of Reims
troops drove the Huns back to the Aisne
«ml the Aisne-Marne canal, clearing
the country north of the Vesle and re
leasing n number of towns. They also
(lined the entire SL Thierry massif.
In Champagne there was no marked j
change during the week, though both Vice
the French und the Americans con- elgn
tlnued to move forward. The Yankees
were up agnlnst a hurd proposition In
the forest of Argonne, where the dense In
woods were full of machine gun nests It
and the fighting was almost like a bat
lie In the dark. This style of warfare, for
however, seemed to suit the Americans
and In broken groups they battled
tlielr way onward, passing beyond
Cierges and always keeping In contact
with the retreating enemy. For miles
they were hampered by the scarcity of
roads, the mud und the innumerable
nud bravely defended fortified shell
craters. They captured during the week
great uuaihars of guns and quantities
of muterlul, including three big ob
servation balloons. On the left flank
of the Americans Gouraud's French
men fought their way northward with
the greatest tntrepedlty und cut off
the Germans opposing them from com
munication with their comrades In the
Argonne forest region. If they can
keep up this advance the Huns In the
salient pointing towards Reims will
fine themselves In an awkward pocket.
The Germans in this sector were fall

they intended to try to hold that line
