HE VU1 PA.ROOr.tOI I' \ Four Dancing Feet By J AXE PHELPS v - LILY SEES TOM AT THE THEATRE Chapter 5! "I've got snmcthinc to tell jnu. Gert.' Lilly said in an aside after she had introduced her companion as .lames MeOlnnls. "I'll te'.l you after the boy a go." Lilly d-d notice that Gertie was i distrait. taken up was she with McGinnls. a young man she hail only met that night. and whom to u*c her own words, she was "vamping because he had money." "What is it you have t<> tell ine. Lilly." Gertie asked in a tired voice as they stood in the dark hallway after bidding their escorts good night. 'That fellow. Tom Norris. the one who we thought was stuck on you so long ago?he's here again." "I know. I went riding with him this afternoon." "You did* Wh/ didn't you tell me he was In town? I always tell you everything " "I didn't know tt till this morning. Lilly. Then just a little after he cams ^ and took me for a ride." r "Well. I saw him tonight with the ?we!lest girl." Gee! But she was a peach all right. T"u see MeGlnnls runs a big pool parlor, he's got money to burn, so Len told me when he In troduced him to me. It wasn't two minutes before he asked me to go to a show, and if 1 couldn't stay all through said he wouldn't mind hut would tak? me to Rosertburg's In time to dance. Maybe ! didn't Jump at the rhance! We went to that new musical comedy, orchestra sea's, mind y <>u, and only just two rows tn front <>f us was that Norris fellow :n waiter's clothes, and a girl without much "n hut straps, and a gorgeous blue coat to Iran ?aian=t. Honest tlertie. she didn't shov hard'y .anything hut hare skin ab"ut the top of the seat ?he was a ? welt looker too. lovely blonde hair, done high up ?;i her head, and pearls ! and rings and bracelets. ? ?h. gee! Why were we born poor!" Gertie had scarcely heard a word of all this. All she realised was that in stead of com!ngi to see her dance in her rretty. new costume Tom had taken some otkir girl?his own kind evident ly from Lilly's description, to the theater. "He's got a right to take anyone he sapS to the 'heater." her pride came to her rescue, a though she desperately wanted to cry He had said he was going to .ta~* her. .ind now the very first n:ghf he had taken .another; and everyone -aid she looked ?o pretty Iti h?t white drevs with the nl'e shoes and stockings ( I "Of oour<? he ha*! I was only tell* ing you about the swell girl. I couldn't ?tay till It was out. so 1 rouldn't see her dress. I was dying tv have her stand i up so I could." I "Well, good night. Lilly." ' "Good night! I guess 1 won't take George Murphy away from you after all. Jim McGlnni.s has a lot more money." ( "Always thinkin' of the money, aren't ; >??<i. I.illy 7" i "It makes the mare go.' Ma says. Good night!" j "You look dreadful tired, dearie. Go } right to bed." Mrs. Gumming* said [ when Gertie kissed her. "Hurry up i now. and I'll bring you a bite on a i tray." j "You're awful good to me. Ma." I "Why shouldn't I be.'" Ain't you the 1 very child of your Pa. and ain't you i good to u* all." She bustled away for j the Inevitable tea. Gertie wiped a tear away as she un I dressed. Her feelings for Tom Morris .'were complex. She tried to assure her .self he never could mean more than a j friend to her. that he only cared to he I with her because she was pretty, and i he was good natured She had no busi ness to feel hurt that he had not come | to see her dance: or that he had taken , some young lady to the theater. But 1 she did' It hurt awfully. ? "He promised to take me ?n rMe .tomorrow rf t: didn't rain" Maybe he'll tei' me all about it," *he said to her self. then sighed n she heard the rain , beat against the window pane. Rut be cause It had commoner.I row It might clear off She would be glad to see | him at home, hut that would not he .like being alone with him. When she '*ald her prayers she asked for a pleas , ant Sunday. But the mofning dawned gray and unpromising Rv h o'clock a i steady downpour promised an unpleas I ant. day. "Pon't look ?o down in the dumps. | Gertie." Jennie said as she carried her 'sister's breakfast to her. "Tom's com ' !ng here. Of course It Isn't *0 -dee a* going out in the automobile, but It's oetter than'not seeing him at all. Lilly says w? ought to go out of the room 'when you have a beau: that fellows don't like to sit around wlih the whole | family." "Pon't listen to Lilly's nonsense. T;,m comes to see u* all. not Just me. He takes m>* riding because 1 am near er his age. and we can talk about things." she finished lamely, her pride xcaus.ng her to make some explanation.

I said "Oh. no. he would love It." ' Then why don't you*" "How ?" "Who's to stop you from giving par ties even if vou haven't children of your own." I asked "Young people [n\e to to to Informal parties. Why don't you up and give some, and before you know It they will get In the habit of coming to your house." A Great Success. At first the idea struck her a* revo lutionary and impossible But later rh? tot only accepted It but improved up?n W She got up several little parties for the sake of getting young people to eoms to the house Then she got !n teres-sd *e the thing from another angle ?t iand tried to bring together young; pen-I pie who did not have many chances for | meeting other vourg people, ^he has | given great happiness and received as, I much if not more?happiness being one of the few things which one can both give away and keep at the same time.
