The mannequiu moved away, guid--!
hy a signal from the other side
of the salon. Mi Hanover dipped
her huuk into her muif. again, and
the young man beside her wal'-d
husurely over to look out the broad
window high above the street.
Then it was that one of the nt w
coiners took the smart young ma n'.i
Mace at IMith's side.
"Greetings'. Kdith. How are you?"
She murmured a jolite response,
and took the opportunity to swiftly
make an inventory of the change
two years had wrought in Donald
('rede. He was stouter and browner:
dressed after a fashion which could
scarcely be called the latest In New
York, and yet an attractive figure.
Kdith bid never been so conscious
of the laagnetism of his personality.
"Voui're looking well. Don." she
sabf; at which seemingly casual re
mark lie threw bark his shoulders
and smiled broadly.
"You mean you approve. Fine!
And I never f .-It so fit in my life.
I've been but before I go on. Edith
is that your husband over there?"
It was Edith's turn to smile and
the blush escaped at the same time.
"I'm not married, Don. Wouldn't
you have heard of it?"
"Don't know. I've been buried In
Hrazil forests most of the time. Rub
ber interests. Going back this week. '
"Going back!" Mis,s Hanover hit
her lip and looked disturbed.
"Yes. It's South America for me
for i number of years. I guess."
Her glance, crossing his shoulder,
took in the prf-ity, ultra smart young
woman who was engrossed in a
study of new fashions.
"Is that your wile over there.
"Wife? I should say not. She's
Cousin Archibald's new wife; and
she dragged me into this." His
crlanee met hers and held it steadily.
"I'm very glad now I came, Edith."
Suddenly, as they looked, an un
expected confusion fell upon them.
It was as though each had been vio
lently shaken out of a fancied se
curity by some emotional shock.
Miss Han'ver brought her small
book to light, speaking nervously.
"See I'm a fashion writer for one
of the magazines. Takincr notes when
you came in. The man at the win
dow is one of our advertising men.
I like this work, and I'm doing very
well. Don." v
Donald Crede was gazing reflec
tively across the ivory and old gold
"See that gray dress? It reminded
me of you, Edith, before I saw you
here. You wore one like it that
night the last niht remember?
Whoa you told me I "was an idle
good-for-nothing, and you wouldn't
have anything to do with me."
"I adore that dress. I'd buy it if
I could afford it. Hut even successful
business women don't indulge in
Paris creations." Edith was talking
in thin tones, desperately vivacious;
edging past him toward the door.
But he deliberately blocked her way.
"Listen. I've seen a girl in gray
down there sometimes at night."
he confided. "A little gray ghost with
silver slippers. It bothered me at
drst, but I felt afterward I should
miss it if it never came again." He
swung around, smiling brightly as
before. "Will you come and meet
Mrs. Archibald Crede. Edith?"
"Oh. no." Her eyes stared re
proachfully out of a paling face.
"Thank you, Don. Hut I'm going.
Yi'U should not have spoken of
ghosts. You've scarce' me awav."
"May I drop in to see you before I

Following a tap on the door, a
package was thrust into the room;
and when the gras was lighted, a
sealed letter was found secured to
the j, ox wrappings. The familiar
writing on the envelope drew Edith j
to an immediate reading of the let-!
".My dear Edith: !

fashion!" Her thoughts ran tempest
uously then tears gathered In her
bright eyes. ,
The musical chiming of a clock
warned her it was time to begin
dressing. Donald Crod? would soon
arrive, and Edith knew she was go
ing to be there to meet him.
Feverishly she tossed over the
gowns in her ardrobe. She was
looking for a gray dress, gray crepe
with light silver trimmings. It was
not a Paris creation and it was not
new; !ut it was very pretty and be
coming, and looked well with Don
ald ('rede's orchids.
Edith stared at her mirrored
image defiantly. "At least, you're

'Good News from Washin
Part of "BULL" DURHAM Tobacco Released
to Civilians at Home to "Roll Their Own"
With the little muslin sack of "BULL" DURHAM in the
pockets of every one of our fighting men on land and sea
With good old "Buir in the regular Army rations
And with the future demands of the War Department
abundantly cared for, part of "BULL" DURHAM Tobacco is offered
again to the men at home who "roll their own".
And to these men I want to say, that in giving up so freely all
your "Bull", when your Country asked for it for its fighting men,
you did a human "bit". However small that little muslin sack may
seem, you may have the satisfaction of knowing that your sack of
"Bull" was meat and drink to some boy waiting or fighting at the
front, and that your supply of "Bull" helped to make the distribution
to our forces full and complete, and make it quickly. Now that
Washington assures us that such distribution is a fact, you will, I
know, welcome the "Makings" home again.
And with greater satisfaction and more pleasure than ever, you
will, I know, with your own hands, roll a cigarette again for yourself a
cigarette machines can't imitate the mildest, the most fragrant,
the most economical cigarette in the world.
Am I wrong in thinking that you will be as proud as I am of
your little muslin sack of "Bull"?
