The Bing family Is a leader In the change. To them the village has become "provin cial." The butcher and baker and candlestick-maker all raise their prices. Even Hiram Blenklnsop, the town drunkard, works hard for* a month. The Old Spirit of Blng vllle Is summarily dred. The drst cltisen builds an addition to his mansion and goes In for entertain ing. Pauline Baker, victim of her surroundings, elopes with a stran ger. O CHAPTER TWO—Continued. "It's a fact Susan told me. Mr Baker doesn't know the truth yet and she doesn't dare to tell him. She'« scared stiff. Pauline went over to Hazelmead last week to visit Emma Stacy against his wishes. She met the young man at a dance. Susan got a latter from Pauline last night making a clean breast of the matter. They ar* married and stopping at a hotel in New York." "My lord 1 I should think she would be scared stiff," said Mrs. Bing. "1 think there Is a good reason for the stiffness of Susan," said Mrs. Sin gleton, the wife of the Congregational minister. "We all know that Mr. Ba ker objected to these modern dances and the way that Pauline dressed. He used to any that It was walking on the edge of a precipice." There was a breath of silence In which one could hear only a faint rus tle like the stir of some invisible spirit. Mrs. Bing sighed. "He may be all right.," she said in a low, calm voice. "But the Indications are not favor able," Mrs. Singleton remarked. , The gossip censed abruptly, for the girls were coming from the palm room. The next morning Mrs. Bing went to see Susan Bnkef to offer sympathy and a helping hand. Mamie Bing was, after all, u good-hearted woman. By this lime, Mr. Baker had been told. He had kicked a hole In the long look ing-glass in Pauline's bedroom and flung u pot of rouge through the win dow and scattered talcum powder all aver the place and torn a new silk gown ln<o rags and burned It in the kitchen stove and left the house slam ming the door behind him. Susan had gon* to ted and he had probably gone to Bie club or somewhere. Perhaps he would commit suicide. Of all this. It ta enough to say that for some hours tl'ere was abundant occupation for the tender sympathies of Mrs. J. Putterson Bing. Before she left, Mr. Baker had tetumed for luncheon and seemed to be quite calm nnd self-possessed when he greeted her In the hall below stairs. On entering her home, about one o'clock, Mrs. Bing received a letter flora the hand of Martha. "Phyllis told me to give you this ns soon as you returned," said the girl. "What does this mean?" Mm. Bing whispered to herself, as she tore open the envelope. Her face grew pale and her hands trembled as she read the letter. "Dearest Mamina," It began, "I am going to Hazelmead for luncheon with Gordon King. I couldn't ask you be cause I didn't know where you were. Wa have waited an hour. I am sure you wouldn't want me to miss having a lovely time. I shall be borne before five. Don't tell father! He hates Gordon so. I'hyllis." j "The boy who Insulted her I M.v j God!" Mrs. Bing exclaimed In a whls ; P* r - She hurried to the door of the butler's pantry. Indignation wus In the sound of her footsteps. "Martha l" she called. Martha come. "Tell James to bring the big car at j once. I'm going to Hazelmead." "Without luncheon?" the girl asked. "J'!*' give me a sandwich and I'll ' est It In my hand." j ! sunied. "I want you to hurry," slit- said to ! James as she entered the glowing , limousine with the sandwich half con drove at top speed over the ; smooth, state road to the mill city. At half past two, Mrs, Bing alighted ut [the fashionable Gray Goose Din where the best people had their luncheon She found Phyllis and Gor don in a cozy alcove, sipping cognac and smoking cigarettes, with an Ice tub and a champagne bottle beside them. To tell the whole truth. It s timely arrival. Phyllis, with no no tion of the peril of It, was Indeed hav ing "a lovely time"—the time of her young life, In fact. For half an hour, •ho had been hanging on the edge of the gtddy precipice of elopement. She .. j parties. was wus within one sip of u decision to let go Mrs. Bing was admirably cool. In her manner there was little to Indi cate that she had seen the unusual and highly festive accessories. She sot down beside them nnd said: "My dear, I was very lonely and thought 1 would come nnd look you up. Is your luncheon finished?" "Yes," said Phyllis. "Then let us go nnd get Into the car. We'll drop Mr. King at his home." When at lust they were seated In the limousine, the angry lady lifted the brakes In n way of speaking. "1 am astonished that you would go to luncheon with tills young man who has Insulted you," she said. Phyllis began to cry. Turning to young Gordon King, the indignant Indy added : "I think you are a disreputable boy. You must never come to my house again— never!" He made no answer and left the car without a word ut the door of the King residence. There were miles and miles of weeping on the wny home. Phyllis had recovered her composure but be gan again when her mother remarked, "I wonder where you learned to drink champagne nnd cognac and smoke cigarettes," as if her own home had not been a perfect academy of dissi pation. The girl sat In a corner, her eyes covered with her handkerchief and the only words she uttered on the way home were these: "Don't tell father I" While' this was happening, Mr. Ba ker confided his troubles to Judge Crooker in the latter's office. The Judge heard him through and then delivered another notable opinion, to wit: "There are many subjects on which the Judgment of the average man is of little VHlue, but in the mat ter of bringing up a daughter it is apt to be sound. Also there are ninny subjects on which the Judgment of the average woman may be trusted, but (Aw I I m C K VO "I Am Cold, Too," Said the Shepherd. In the matter of bringing up a daugh ter It Is opt to he unsound. I say this, after some forty years of observa tion." "What is the reason?" Mr. Baker naked. "Well, a daughter has to be pre pared to deal with men," the Judge went on. "The masculine tempera ment is Involved In nil the critical problems of her life. Naturally the average man Is pretty well Informed on the subject of men. You have prospered these late years. Yon "have been so busy getting rich that you have Just used your home to eat nnd sleep In. You can't do a home any good by eating and snoring and read ing a paper in It." "My wife would hnve her own way there," said Baker. "Thnt doesn't alter the fact that you have neglected yonr home. You have lot things slide. You wore yourself out In this matter of money-getting. Yon were tired when you got home at ntght—nil In, ns they say. The hank was the main thing with you. I repeat thnt you let things slide at home nnd the longer they slide the faster they slide when they're going down hill. You can always count on that in a ense of sliding. "The young hnve a taste for velocity nnd often It comes so unaccountably fust thnt they don't know what to do with It, so they're apt to get their necks broken unless there's some one to put on the brakes." Mr. Emmanuel Baker arose nnd be gan to stride up and down the room. "Upon my word, Judge! I don't know wlmt to do," he exclaimed. "There's only one thing to do. Go and find the young people and give them your blessing. If you can dis cover a spark off manhood in tbs fat low, make the^moat of It. The chances agiilnst that, but let us hope for the best. Above nil. I want you to be gentle with Pauline, to blame than she Is. "1 don't see how I enn spare the time, but I'll buv# -o,"'8uld Baker , "Time ! Fiddlesticks !" the Judge ex claimed. "What a darn fool money makes of a tnnn ! Yor *inve lost your sense of proportion, your appreciation of values. Bill Pritchard used to talk that way to me. He has been lying twenty yenrs In his grove. He hadn't a minute to spare until one day he fell dead—then leisure and lots of leisure, It would seem—and the business hns doubled since lie quit worrying about it. My friend, you can not take a cent into Paradise, but the soul of Pauline Is n different kind of property. It might be n help to you there. Give plenty of time to this Job, nnd good luck to you." . The spirit of the old, dead days spoke in the voice of the Judge—spoke with a kindly dignity. It had ever been the voice of Justice, tempered with Mercy—the most feared nnd re spected voice in the upper counties. Ills grave, smooth-shaven face, his kindly gray eyes, his noble brow with Its crown of white hair were fitting accessories of the throne of Justice and Mercy. "I'll go this afternoon. Thank you, Judge !" said Baker, as he left the office. are 'Tou are more Pauline had announced In her letter thnt her husband's name was Herbert Middleton. Mr. Baker sent a telegram to Pauline to apprise her of his arrival In the morning. It was a fatherly message of love and good-will. At the hotel in New York, Mr. Baker learned that Mr. and Mrs. Middleton had checked out the day before. No body could tell him where they had gone. One of the men at the porter's desk told of putting them in a taxicab with their grips and a steamer trunk soon after lunch eon. He didn't know where they went. Mr. Baker's telegram was there un opened. He called at every hotel desk In the city, but he could get no trace of them. He telephoned to Mrs. Baker. She had heard nothing from Pauline. In despair, he went to the police de partment and told his story to the chief. "It lo'dis a*. If there was something crooked about it," said the chief. "There are many cases like this. Just reaA that." The officer picked up a newspaper .clipping, which lay on his desk, and passed It to Mr. Baker. It was from the New York Evening Post, banker read Moud this startling In formation : "'The New York police report that approximately 3,600 girls have run away or disappeared from their homes in the past eleven months, and the bureau of missing persons estimates that the number who have disappeared throughout the country approximates 68 , 000 .' " "It's rather astonishing," the chief went on. "The women seem to have gone crazy these days, the new dancing and the movies that are breaking down the morals of the little suburban towns or maybe it's the excitement of the war. Anyhow, they keep the city supplied with run aways and vamps, first acxious father ' have seen to day. You can go home. I'll put a man on the case ano let you know what happens." The Maybe it's You are riot the CHAPTER THREE Which Tells of the Complaining Coin and the Man Who Lost His Self. There was a certain gold coin In a little bureau drawer in Blngville which began to form a Imbit of to its master. "How cold I am!" it seemed to say to the hoy. 'I wus cold when you put me In here and I hove been cold since. Br-r-r! complaining ever I'm freezing."
