Four Dancing Feet
By J AXE PHELPS
LILY SEES TOM AT THE THEATRE
"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
"You did* Wh/ didn't you tell me
he was In town? I always tell you
"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

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
"He's got a right to take anyone he

to her rescue, a though she desperately
wanted to cry He had said he was

and stockings (
I "Of oour<? he ha*! I was only tell*

I "Well, good night. Lilly."

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

she did' It hurt awfully.

WHEN YOU MISS CHILDREN

"But he wouldn t mind having young
people around If you could get them to
come to the house?'" I said
"Oh. no. he would love It."
' Then why don't you*"
"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

up and give some, and before you know
It they will get In the habit of coming
