The nlr wns filled with the perfume of roses nml tho morning breeze Mow the lljrlit curtnlim to nml fro Mid waft ed llio delicious fragrance through the upon window, A Utile child was neat fil upon tlio floor burying it white kitten under tho red rose petnlH sho liud iiulleil from stems scattered nbout. Near her lay a doll very much tin dressed. Reside It n little pile of dainty clothing ready for uso when her mistress remembered what was duo to respectability, Watching the group with listless eyes was a woman, stretched with an Invalid's Inertness upon n couch. LI. toning to the child's low talk, she caught the sound of a quick step upon the vorandu nnd n faint gleam of color rose to her face to disappear before a man stopped through tho long window Into the room; a man alert In move ment whose keen eyes softened to n . marvelous gentleness as he looked to wn rd her. With tin almost Imperceptible mo tion the girl pressed more deeply Into the pillows supporting her. The slight movement wns not lost upon the man, who lnld his hand upon1 the child's head, laughing ns he turned her face to meet his gaze, "What n ciueless, careless mother, Ruth, to leave your child In this con dition. Sho will take cold." "I'm aw'ly anxious, Doctor Mnx, nnd Im clad you have come, she nn- Rwered, gravely. "I'm afraid Colum bin has hurt herself nnd will have to have nn op'rntlon With gravity equaling her own, the physician took the doll nnd worked at stiff nnd broken Joints until legs nnd nrms moved ensily, He wns glad of the respite, for tho slight withdrawing of the woman upon the couch had hurt him to the quick. Not until the doll wns In perfect order did he turn nnd take the slender hand In his strong, warm clnsp. With professional quick ness he noted the irregular pulse and heavy eyes, "You did not sleep last night," he said gently. "No," she answered, quietly meet ing his eyes. With a sigh he left her side nnd stood for long looking with unseeing eyes into the old-fashioned gnrden "You gain no strength," he said at last, the misery In his heart told In the sudden strain of his voice. For the moment the usunlly self-contnlned physician was not himself. "If I thought my leaving you, Mar geret, would be your gain, I would go within the hour. Rut you need me. You need my strength, my under standing. This, that you allow to stand between us Is n false conception of your physical condition. You have thought about" yourself until you have become obsessed by the Idea that you are a helpless invalid." "Will I ever be strong, Mnxr "Strength would come with happi ness. It Is happiness you are fighting with nil that Is in you under the mis taken Impression that you would make of my life a fnllure by coming to mo, whereas I need you more than I can sny. I need pence of mind. That I cannot have when I see yon putting from you the love God has implanted in your henrt; thnt you have told me you foel for me. "The battle is going against you, dear. Each day I see it. It Is the constant effort to keep the barrier be tween us that tells so upon you. I know this as your physician. I know it because of my love for you. Why ore you so unwilling to allow me to bo the judge of what Is best for me? That is what you are doing. Deciding for me. Dear, no man who Is n mnn Is going to accept without protest such a decision. If you ' care nothing for me there is nothing more to be said. I am man enough, I hope, to take my medicine without whimpering. Rut you have told me that you do care; that you will not give yourself to me because you will be n drag upon my life." There wns a moment of silence, then she put her slender fingers about his nnd rested her cheek against his hnnd. "Max, would thnt be at peace If I did ns you wish?" she asked gen tly ns she placed his hand over her laboring heart. "Would happiness con tinue where there would be constant regret? You say I am obsessed by the fenr I would spoil your life. I am. What help could I be to a man climbing, as you nre climbing ench dny higher in your profession? I would be proud of you, yet I could do nothing but sit and wait and listen. And when you were not with me there would always be regret. Try as I would, I could not hide It. Your love would find It out and you would be ,as miserable ns I." "You talk nonsense," ho returned roughly. "I niu thinking of you m well ni myself. It Is your life nn well iw mine I am begging for. Hearts can he starved us well as bodies, only Homo take lunger to die than others, I mil a strong mun, Margeret, whllo you" Ilti gripped tho framo of the win dow until thn veins stood out In great cords upon his hand. IIo had forced hrinself to speak quietly and his voice gave no hint of tho ugony of fear that possessed him. "Are you going to let your will stand between us, spoil our lives? Happiness will lengthen yours. And mine?" He drew n deep breath. "We wH not talk of mine, dear. For your own sake I Implore you to llsteu to me." "Aunt In, what does Doctor Mns want you to do?" Tho forgotten child slipped between them nnd threw no nrm across the frail figure. He wishes mo to go uwny with him, dour." Will you?" Ruth questioned In sudden fear. Tile weary eyes looked steadily Into the dominant ones above her and wore held by the pain nnd misery she saw In their depths. Her own were dark with suffering ns sho turned "away with a sigh. "No, sweatheart." With a laugh of relief tho child re sumed her play and tho man left the room. Some hours Inter ns tho Inst rays of tho sotting sun glinted across the flower-seentod room, Ruth danced Into it holding her doll closely saying over nnd over one word until the rythm renched the dulled consciousness of the woman lying on tlfe couch and aroused her. "What Is It you say, denr?" "Such a funny word thnt mammy told me about," the child answered. "Skidded. I want to know what, It means, bpcause she says Doctor Max did It down the hill. She didn't tell me where." Suddenly erect Margeret stared at the child. "Tell Mammy Rose to come here, Ruth, nnd we will find out what she meant." I's righ' hynr, Miss Mar'gret. I Jus' dun foller dat chiP case I feared she'd say somefln' she shouldn't. Now don yo' git skeered, honey, fo' thar ain' nothin' to git skeered about." What nre you talking nbout. Mam my?

Rut the strength, keyed for the mo ment to unusual exertion could lust but n little time. Conscious that It was fast leaving her, Margeret prayed for it to last until she reached the building; prayed that she would be in time to tell him that she was awake nt last. Nothing mattered but that he should know what life would mean to her without him, nnd she hurried, hurried until nt length she sank ex hausted upon the steps leading up to St. Luke's. There were people about who stnred at her. Mammy Rose with hnnds upon her bulging hips glared at them as she sheltered the girl with her huge figure. Then an inspiration came to her and her mnnner changed to Ingratiating blandness. "Ef one oh yo'alls Ml go up thar an' asu ro' ae uoetor i suiumy a no much erbleeged." Any one In particular?" some one asked. Suttinfy not," she replied, with dignity. "Jus some doctor'll do." She waited long, long enough for the passersby, their curiosity unsat isfied, to go their different ways. Hearing steps behind her she turned nnd for the second time within the hour gasped out her amazement at the unexpected. "Fo" Gawds sake !

Then Miu'gerot spoke. "I am only tired. Just tired. Is It really you, Max? I was afraid I would never reach you nnd I wanted so to tell you thnt I give up. I thought I was right, dear, but noth ing matters now but Just you," nnd before the scandalized gaze of Mam my Rose the girl slipped her arms about the big doctor's neck, "jus' as ef she had'n bin brung up 'spectnble," the old woman moaned.

SISLER AFTER LEADING HONORS THIS SEASON California's Goat Ranch. Callfornln has a large ranch stocked with Swiss and Nubian goats, the milk from which Is condensed and canned. Gont's milk Is said to be very rich, and ' la In demand as nourishing food for invalids. A well-bred milch goat will produce 12 times its weight In milk. A cow produces yearly three times her weight If she Is a good milker, but the goat cannot be depended upon for a steady supply of milk at all times through the year. Therefore It Is said that canning Is tho best method of making a goat dairy profitable. An 11-ounce can of condensed goat milk retails nt 20 cents In the West, and the sale has thus fnr been confined chiefly to drug stores. The Pnciflc Dairy review reports that gont dairy ing Is a thriving industry in the west, and believes that canned goats' milk would find a wide sale if extended to the grocery trade. care how soon I go. I have had a splendid Inning and a great deal of luck." The surgeon replied that many people would take a different view of his life. "Nobody knows but oneself,', he made answer, "how many catches have been missed." Which is capital philosophy and characteiistic modesty In the same breath. Great Statesman's Modesty. When his surgeon broke the news to Lord Beaconsfleld that there was no hope of his recovery, he said with firmness; "Well, If that's so I don't Why He Took Out Insurance. A life insurance man wrote a large policy on a well-to-do business mun not long ago, and when he delivered the policy asked : "Do you mind telling me why you, a wealthy man, have taken out this life insurance?"

Meyer Davis of this city, who has Ijeen dubbed the "kin of tho "Jaz.ers," Is quoted by a Boston Post reporter who interviewed him as liuvlng said that Jazz music, while having Wagner beaten a mile for harmony, cuunot be written because it Is never played the sume way twice In succession. ' " "The Jazz originated lu u section of New Orleans known us Congo place, and has been transplanted to glided hostelrles, the homes of tho rich and to all places where the canned-music machines give voice," said Davis. "Will the Jazz craze last?" ques tioned the newspaper mnn. "Like the music they Imported from tho wnve-washed shores of Hono lulu," replied Davis, " it will quickly become a thing of tho past. It's a nov elty, nnd thut Is nil. A Jazz player takes a piece of music nnd plays what uln't there. The good Jnzzer can take any sort of a melody and Jazz it up by putting all sorts of 'blues' in, with a generous sprinkling of ragtime vari ations. A typical Jazz band Is composed of Instruments of greatest noise making power. Let me explain. You must havo the slide trombone, with a bottle of oil handy. Then a drummer, with a complete assortment of kitchen Utensils, nnd a cornetist, who must have finished execution and technique, as the ragging of tho melody depends on him. Clarionet? Sure! He plays all the convolutions, evolutions and variations. And then the piunlst. That will do for a small bunch of jazzers." "What effect does jazz music have on human beings?" asked the reporter. "It will muke a wooden man dance, and cause an octogenarian to feel like a boy of sixteen," he replied. HAVE TOU AHY STICK CArtDY? Wanted to Keep Promise He Made the Children AFARMKIt mun wanted peppermint stick candy, pink and white. You can't find old-timey sweets like that these days, except in back-street shops that don't count, but the clerk could give him caramels, conserves, glnees, marsh mallows, fudges But the furmer wns set on peppermint stick enndy. pink nnd white. He had promised the children the last thing before starting for the city. They were going to help hlra out with the crop and he had to get them what they askfd for. His disappointment had put n real worry line between his eyes and in his voice was a dejection which would have been ridiculous except that you can't laugh nt genuine feeling not if you are the right sort yourself. The clerk, a helpful young person with seemingly no aspiration to throw down her job for war work nt one thousand per, suggested every luring substitute in stock, but peppermint was what the farmer wanted. "Why, little miss, those young ones will be waiting for me a mile up the road I Just can't bear to think of it " Foolishness to make such a fuss over nothing, of course. Of course! AH the same, it is right refreshing to meet up with a man with a Gibraltarisn sense of honor like that, because you must ndmit There are others. Couldn't Believe Gorgeous Being Was Her Father A TINY girl out southeast way lived with an uncle nnd aunt because her mother was In henven nnd her father at sea. Being old enough to play with other tiny children, she wondered why it was that she had no papa to come home from work every after noon so that she could race down the pavement and hug him around the legs. She longed for that dally com ing papa with a yearning that no grown-up could ever suspect, seeing that we somehow forget what goes on in childhood land after we are turned out of it and the gate locked be tween except, of course, when the lonesome years come along and Fa ther Time, who Is a whole lot kinder than we give him credit for, lets us peek backward through his memory glass to show us how beautiful it used to be. After so long, the father an officer in the navy returned from a cruise nnd came to the southeast home for a first glimpse of .his baby daughter. The child took In the brass buttons and gold braid with rapt wonder leadened, with doubt. This big, gold-shining man was not like the papas who came home from work every afternoon to have their legs hugged. The blue cloth arras were open to reclve her, but she hung back fearsomely. She had to be sure. "Are you my father?" The arms folded the tiny girl and assurance was given which settled every doubt. And the child voiced rhapsodic relief. I thought you were God."

Rather Rough on Waiter, but "Orders Is Orders" THE manager of a Washington hotel has insisted upon strict observance of the food administration's rules from the beginning, so that two men, apparently of the class that are In Washington on business Just now, who did not seem to care anything about food conservation, were responsible for the discharge of a waiter the other day. The two had ordered a hearty luncheon, and after the meal had pro gressed somewhat they summoned the waiter and told him to bring some more bread. He hesitated. "We'll protect you. Bring the bread," said one of them, and the waiter hurried off. He came back with a plate of biscuits. At the next table, however, sat an official of the food administration. He beckoned to the head waiter, said something to him in an undertone, and in a few minutes the writer who had served the forbidden b"read rushed back to the table where the two men were and said agitatedly: "You gentlemen have cost me my job serving that bread was against orders." They called for tho head waiter of the room and protested that the waiter was not at fault, but they. "We have certain rules in this establishment, gentlemen, which must be followed," said the head waiter. "These particular rules are the result of a pledge made by us to the food administration." "But this Is our fault," protested one of the two men. The head waiter didn't deny it. "We can only punish the waiter who disobeyed our rules," he said.
