Cannon Crackers An Aid to Love By Elsie Endicott THE SOUTH BEND NEWS-TIMES ROY DUHMiNO was 35 and had nrrr boea In lore. "You fee, h jo hii friend, narrj Thome, "if tnj housekeeper doesn't plaaj ne I can t?e her & two we-eka notice and b rid of her," and he aat bak In his chair. You yriir fall In lore some day," Thorne Bald, "and that will chanje tho world fcr you. Dunnlns smiled. "IWe got past that, old man. Cupid has glren me up as hop-less. I " Ths sentence was cut short by the entrance of a graceful girl. She paus ed suddenly and the color mounted to her cheeks. "Oh, I beg your pardon, Harry, I didn't know you had got back," and she turned to leave the room. Roy Dunning was stating at her as she caught his eyes. -Don't go. Era," her brother-in-law said. "This Is my friend, Roy Dun ning. Roy arose from his chair and bowed rather stiffly. The next moment the dainty figure had passed out of tha room. "I didn't know you had Tisltors," Roy said at length. "Oh. we don't look on Era as a iisl tor," answered Harry. "She comes and goes Just when she likes." Half an hour later Roy found him self sitting opposite the sister of his hostess and for th first time a feeling of shyness crept orer him. The next day was a holiday, and In the erenlng Era accepted Roy's lnrlta tlon to motor to the city to see the fireworks. As they sat side by side he talked quietly and modestly about himself about his experiments arid his hope of discoveries that seemed almost within his reach. Never before had he talked to such a responsive listener. A great gladness took possession of him. He had found the woman he had been un consciously looking for, but whom he had never expected to find. He gave no hint of what he felt beyond what his eyes revealed. The next morning he was up with the lark. He wandered out into the grounds to enjoy a smoke. He could not lie In bed when tho world was so beautiful and life so full of promise. On his way b-ck to the house he en countered Harry. Breakfast would not be ready for an hour, fo they walked around together and talked about the weather, the crops and many other things, then finally drifted to Eva. "She Is a fine girl," Harry said In a most casual manner. "I sometimes wonder how she and Warren Layton will hit It when they are married." "Married V Roy questioned. Ho felt as If his heart had stopped beating. "Yes, It's been an understood thing for years. He Is considerable, older than she, but he's been willing to wait for her." Roy was seized with a great long ing to be alone, that he might recover himself, but the breakfast gong was sounding and they went back to the house. Eva came Into the room, look ing daintier than ever, but he did not meet her yc s. After breakfast he read his letter, then announced he must leave for the West at once on business, and half tn hour later he was on his rray to the station. Cupid's dart had struck deep md the wound would never heal. There wa.i no balm for his hurt like steady and persistent work, and In his laboratory ne was eager and alert. One morning at the end of the year, the great secret for which he had been striving for. leaped out to him. The story of his discovery got into the papers and In a small way, Roy found himself famous. Eva Lounsbury. scanning tho paper one morning, caught his name. A curicus thrill of pride ran through her veins as she read the story of his toil and patience. Then her thoughts wandered back to tho evening she had spent with him almost a year ago. Why did ho leave so abruptly? Why had he never come back? She knew that he was wedded to his work, for Harry had told her that women did not Interest him. Another holiday came and Roy Dun ning found himself under Utsrj Thome's hospitable room once more. "Ella wanted me to Invite Era." Harry was saying, "but I put my foot down. I knew you didn't care for women, and besides I dont approve of her conduct of late." "Has has your slster-ln-law een offending you"? asked Roy, fighting uneasily in his chair. "Well, I doiTc approve of the -ray she's treated Warren Layton." Roy leaned forward yrlth an et.ger look In his eye. "I dont think a girl should keep a man dangling at her feet for two years and then throw him over," went on Harry. "Then Miss Lounsbury Is not mar ried"? "No, nor likely to be. Nobody thought she would shy at the last mo ment Anyhow, I gtves she la having a pretty rough time with the old folks." "Then you should Invite her down here," Roy said with eudden energy. "I was afraid sh bcred you out of the place the last time you were hero. "Bored me! What could kave put that idea in your head." The next day, Eva arrived at Uoore lan.1, not knowing Rcy was there When their eyea met she came for ward eagerly with outctretched hands. Their hands met and clasrd. but neither one spoke. They both under stood. Before the day was out they found themselves alone. "Eva," he said, coming close to her, "You know I love you." "Yes, I know," che answered shyly. "And you"? he questioned. "Have you not read my telltale face," she answered, raising her swim ming eyes to his. "How long has It been, Eva"? "It was the night we went to see the fireworks. Every tlma the cannon crackers went off I would Jur:p and nestle elofe to you for retention. It waa then I knew I loved you, ar.1 you only." "Bless those cannon crackers." V whispered, aa he kissed her on the Hps. 0 Similar. Do'ry Iint it time to get out of thi water now? We have bern here for al most an hour.

When Louis Came to His Senses M: By rhii Moore Err- EILEN had everything a wom it an could dIre except love. " She could acarcely remem ber having her husband's company of an evening since the arrival of their delicate baby boy. Somehow the con stant walling of the little one grated on the father's nerves and each nV?ht im mediately after dinner he hurried to the comfortable club rooms, where no baby disturbed his pleasant evenings. Tonight she tip-toed Into the dimly lighted bed-room and listened to the Irregular breathing of her little son, Louis. Jr. Her gaze wandered from the little Cushed face around the lux uriously furnished room. Helen's gaie again rested on the lit tle troubled sleeper. Some time in the past the doctor had told her a change might possibly benefit the lit tle fellow It was Just a tart possi bility, but now as Helen thought it over she resolv?d to take her baby away the very next day. Her husband was on a business trip that would keep him away at least a week, and at first Helen decided to wait until his return, then she smiled bitterly as she thought how little it mattered to him whether they went now or next week, so the next day found mother and bab: on their way to the little country place ihe doctor had suggested. In the meantime Louis, Sr., was transacting his business in a far-off city. A college chum had invited him to stay at his house during his time spent in the city. Louis eagerly ac cepted the invitation for he had not seen his chum for a good many years. After a strenuous day of business Louis went to the home of his friend and was met at the door by a happy couple and hanging on tightly to the hand of each parent was a healthy, smiling baby of about a year. After the prreetlngs a proud father lifted his little pon in his arms and proudly holding him out to Louis, said: "Isn't little Tom, Jr.. some youngster"? and both father and mother gazed proudly at their boy. Every tlmo Louis started to talk on 9. business affair or about college days somehow or another the subject drift ed back to little Tom until at last in disgust Louis decided to retire, but not to sleep. The room seemed un naturally still. When he finally did doze off he was startled by a shrill lit tle voice that he thought was his baby's, but after listening he discov ered it was the wonderful little Tom downstairs happily crowing, eveh though It was only 4:30 a. m. The next night Louis did not have the courage to stay with his friend. The happy trio made him feel small and lonesome. . Going to his hotel he retired early, but it was Just the same as the night before. His wife and baby were ever before him. When he fell into a troubled sleep he dreamed he saw them playing together, but neither seemed to notice him. He could stand it no longer and cutting his business trip short he hurried home to 'find the place locked up. With a feeling of utter dcFjAilr he wandered from one room to the other. The little white crib was neatly made up and a kimona belonging to his wife was thrown across the foot. Here Louis dropped on his knees and, bury ing his face in the folds of the kimona, ho prayed that his wife and baby would return. He realized now, for the first time, how much he loved them. The long days dragged Into weeks and weeks Into months and ev ery night Louis returned to the empty home awaiting some word from his loved one, but none came. One night, some months later, Louis sat alone in the bay window watching the little stiow flakes pile higher and higher. He did not light up the room for It had become a habit with him now to watch night after night for the two he felt in his heart would never return. Suddenly he heard the faint tinkle of sleigh bells and, instead of passing by, they stopped and & wom an with a baby in her arms alighted. Louis' heart almost stopped beating. Could it be Helen and his baby? They were coming up the steps and, with one bound, he was out to meet them and the next moment his wife find baby were clasped in his arms.
