WHY KATH I)i:CTI)i:i) TO Liiwi:

"There will be plenty of room."
she said Icily. "The pirl is the
youngest, and we can get a crib for
her and put it In your room, which,
of coursf, you will naturally cive to
your sister-in-law and her husband,
while they are here. Then an ex
tra cot in Dicky's room will tix that
room very nicely for the three
"Where do you think Dicky and I
will sleep? I asked, and I am
afraid my tone was as frigid as her
own, for her utter disregard of my
position as mistress of the house
was fast Rettlnp on my nerves, much
as I tried to conceal it from Dieky.
MOTHER GRAHAM'S DEMANDS.
This rojected birthday visit of
Dicky's sister and her family, which
has been arranged bv my mother-ln-
law without even the pretence of!fron brewery? Veil, I guess not,
consulting me until after her invi
tation had been sent, caused mo
much mlcKlvinf:. The Incursion of
fix Ptranffers, four of whom were
children, into a household were suf
ficiently upsetting of Itself. But
when the mother of the family 13 a
critical pl.ter-ln-law, for I had no
reason to believe that Dicky's sister.
Klizabeth, would be less captloua
than his mother the prospective
hostess may well be pardoned for
havincr qualms of anxiety concern
In? the outcome of the experiment.
My mother-in-law's answer was
not particularly soothing to my
"There Is a perfectly irood bed
room next to Katie's," she said cool
ly, "with that walnut bedstead of
mine in it. It is a most comfortable
bed. Dicky has slept In it many
a time In hla boyhood."
"If It be po comfortable, -why
could not the three boy sleep In It?"
I nked rrbelliously, and regretted
the words th moment they left my
lips, for Mother Graham was rc
trardinf? me with horrified amaze
ment. "If that is your notion of hospi
tality, to put your puests in a room
next thf servants at the end of the
hall, while you yourself sleep In a
bedroom. I have nothing more to
say," she rejoined, and then went
on talkinir in sublime unconscious
ness of the silence vow she had
"However. I am afraid for this
once you will have to modify your
very peculiar Ideas," she went on.
for Flizabfth's boys are subject to
eroup. and must be near their moth
er. They must not sleep, in so cold
a room as that back one. either.
They are not used to It."
"Oh. of course!" I agreed instant
ly, for a sick child or one who is
subject to illness appeals to me very
strongly. T was really a trlfllo
'i shamed of my own reluctance to
entertain Dicky's sister and her fam
ily, but. to do myself injustice. I be
lieve 1 would have fett very differ
ently about it if Mother Graham
h.vl not adopf d such a hiprh-handed
attitude toward the matter.
My mother-in-law paid no atten

favorable, .is not worth

"We must have .11 these windows

She pn;ed her tmger ovf-r the edge
of the win-low franif and withdraw
it triumphantly, showing nie tlr?

KATIE DKOIDKS QUICKLY.
"I suppose so," I returned, and I
fear my tone was a trill le s"ilky. My
mother-in-law glanced at me sharp

ut of the room.

"Katie!" my mother-in-law's
voice was outraped, stern. "Never

about this, or you will leave."
With a panther-like movement,
Katie swept her arm across the
kitchen table whore he was beating
up a cake, sending cake bowl with
its mixture and the other things on
the tab!e to the floor. Then she un
tied her apron, rolled It up In a ball

hysterically, and swept past my

Hoosier Motor Club, County
and Road Superintendents
Endorse New Law.
; News-Time Special fcerrlce:
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.. Deo. 30.
A new state highway commission
law, a law for the creation of a
county unit system of bonding, con
struction and maintenance of the
lesser roads of the state and re
cislons of the present three-mile
pravel road law, were agreed on by
representatives of the Hoosier Mo
tor club, the Indiana state chamber
of commerce, the County Commio
sioners association, the road super
intendents of the state, and many
others interested, who appeared at
a meeting; called at the Severin hotel
by the special legislative roads com
mittee, which is investigating senti
ment throughout the state on he
That the next legislature will
make an effort to pass a state high
way commission law, carrying broad
centralized authority, and that funds
for its maintenance will be drawn
from the present automobile license
law revenues (added to by increased
levies on automobile trucks), the
Inheritance tax law revenues (to be
increased if a special act is passed
calling for enlargement of the pres
ent inheritance tax law's provisions),
and a state road tax of one mill on
each $100 worth of property, was
forecast when the meeting here
adopted unanimously a motion In
troduced by Ensley Johnson, county
attorney of Marlon county, which
called for an enactment of a Statut
under which a non-partisan high
way commission, with power to cen
tralize road construction and main
tenance power in its own appointees,
and to cooperate with the federal
government to such an extent that
Indiana wil reap all possible bene
fits from federal-aid-to-states appro
priations for good roads.
The meeting also adopted unani
mously a resolution introduced by
Johnson, which called for enactment
of a statute, which would provide
that all highways in the state not
taken over by the federal or stat
governments, be tinder the direct
supervision of the various countie,
and that the county governments be
authorized to bond the counties to
build county-wide systems of Inter
townshlp highways, and that such
bond? be paid for by all taxpayer?
of the county affected.
Sentiment to repeal the three
mile gravel road law was attacked
by several at the meeting, and it
seemed that some action will be
taken to conserve the jrood poir.ts of
that law by incorporation into the
proposed county unit law. The
urgent neel of immediate und In
telligent revision of th state's road
program was dilated on by many
notable Mooters. In addresses to the
meeting, and the war need for such
revision was shown In many In
stances qui :ed, where the IToosier
road system had broken down under
the heavy trafllc of army trucks.
