It was a baby, nestling under lace
covers, that gave Barbara the idea
though it was more than an idea to the
lonely young woman, for it became I
her constant longing. Barbara Waincot
had so long known only the care of
others that sacrifice was a part of her
life, so when the last invalid, an aunt,
passed on to her rest leaving Barbara
quite alone with a simple legacy to
barely cover her needs-well, the kind
ly young woman began to look about
for another needy charge. The baby
In Its lacy nest typified a heretofore
unknown need of her own.
"Why not." she asked herself, her
soft cheeks glowing, "why not adopt a
baby and have something to love and
something to love me?" The thought
grew to fill Barbara's dreams. With
the assistance of a friend Barbara
was able to find the little one of her
desire. The baby's mother had died
at its birth-the father just before.
Barbara made arrangements for adop
tlon, which had been the sad mother's
wish. She named it Sylvia.
"Sylvia sounds so prettily romantic,"
she told the friend.
"I hope that my little girl will know
in life all those beautiful things which
I have been obliged to forego."
But all too promptly had Barbara
put girlish dreams aside. Just as Syl
via was learning to lisp the name
'Bab,' which was the nearest baby lips
could get to Barbara, along came Bar
bara's delayed lover. Paul Strong pos
sessed qualities which made him
worthy to be Barbara's mate, but in
the friendship which followed his fall
lag became unpleasantly evident-Paul
was unreasonably, persistently jealous
and as the only occasion for jealousy -
must come through baby Sylvia. Paul -
was jealous of Sylvia.
An imperious small ruler was Paul L
Strong's rival. And Barbara's tenoer
heart was torn. her will hovering, for
she had learned to love Paul, and be
would accept only undivided homage.
"Surely," she begged her lover, "you h
would not ask me to give Sylvia p? t
Why, dear, she loves me as she would b;
have loved a mother of her own."
"You are not that mother," Paul an- a
swered sharply, "and In a very short c
time another could take your place in
the child's affections."
A pang crossed Barbara's heart Yet o
I she knew that this little clinging thing o
needed her guiding care, no other must t
substitute. This, her charge, so griev- f
r Ing deeply, she sent Paul away. r
e The years went on. rn her carefree
girlhood Sylvia flaunted more and t
more her happy rule. C
"Babs will do anything in the world
b for me," she lovingly boasted. Sylvia
had grown very lovely-Barbara had a
Sgrown paler, thinner. Then Paul
dtrong came back. Sylvia was the
Sfirst to see him as he came down the
"8weetie," she addressed her foster
mother, "I saw a most distinguishebd
Kman turning in to the old Strong place
A today. Why here be comes now." 4
Barbara looked to see her old lover.
Then, trembling a little, Barbara went
to open the door to him. She fancied
a flash of disappointment in his eyes
as he looked at her. ier own heart
was singing, "He has come back
During the following weeks Paul
was a Eonstant visitor at Barbara's lit
"You still love Sylvia better than

his toae was merely humoreou.
"Eghteen years has not made M

"I am old, child, old in years, with

Slowly Barbar went up to har

The West, however, true to its tem

About midday she found herself on
the station platform, her patent leath

But she had no money with which

a throng of men burst through the
