By VICTOR REDCLIPFE (Copyright. 1919, Western Newspaper Union) At a single glance Dale SHverton took In critically the presentment of two ladles who had Just left the train at the little station of Dolton, j They were mother and daughter, Dale decided at once. The former had a genial matronly face, exhibiting en tire contentment with life. The latter was a lovely girl of eighteen and Dale looked at her admiringly twice, and ; then hoped for some reasonable ex i cuse for repeating the privljege. Dale had his automobile at the platform, having expected the arrival by train of a favorite college friend. He had I not come, and the -elderly lady made a movement towards Dale as he started to return to his car. Dale raised his cap and awaited her pleasure. "Pardon me," spoke the elder lady, “but are there no regular conveyances for the convenience of travelers?” “There Is a motorbus for the morn ing and evening trains,” explained Dale, “but during the day its owner drives a delivery truck for the local stores. Is your destination in the town?” “Yes. \Ye were directed to a Miss Annette Folsom. Do you know her?” “She is a distant relative of mine,” answered Dale wltli a smile, “and as I am driving directly past her home it , i-ill be a pleasure to take you there.” “I am Mrs. Willard Bruce,” spoke the lady after a brief hesitation, “and with my daughter, Dorothy, expect to make my permanent home in Dolton. My city attorney has made arrange ments for our temporary sfay with Miss Folsom.” “I understand,” bowed Dale, and understood, Indeed. This then was the lady concerning whom the gossips of the village had been speculating for weeks past. Mrs. Arthur Smith, so cial lender and newly rich tondy to style and fashion, had told how the Bruce family, of wealth and high city prestige, was to locate in the show mansion of the town which had been vacant for some time but, as Dale had noticed, was now uuder complete renovation, Mrs. Bruce accepted ihe proffer of the young man with gracious thanks, and Miss Dorothy found him interest ing and obliging as to her casual in quiries about the village. Dale de livered his passengers and their be longings at the home where his spin ster half cousin took hoarders of the better class when occasion required. The next day he drove by the place, but caught no sight of the ■winsome faced girl who had considerably at tracted him. Two afternoons later, however, lie met Algie Smith, and con sented to lie bored by that shallow minded young fop because Algie talked about the newcomers. ‘‘Ma says they are the people who have taken the big house,” reported Algie. “There’s a daughter, and they are some people, she understands. Look here. Silverton, she’s pretty, they say, and rich. Can’t yon sort of bring me up against her? You could make an excuse to visit your aunt and I’ll go with you—see?’ “I don’t,” answered Dale tartly, “for 1 wouldn’t think of intruding myself.” Ail the same Date, having a real rea son for seeing his aunt, drove up in front of the Folsoui house the day following. He heard joyous voices in li • rear yard and walked around the ' house. There was his divinity of the depot, the peerless Dm-othy, Mrs. Bruce and his aunt. They were having a jolly time. Upon the grass lay a clothes basket filled to the brirn with clothes. Portly Mrs. Bruce was trying [ to lift it and panted at the task. Miss Folsom tried the experiment and her frail frame staggered under the load. “Oh, yon poor, useless creatures!” cried the sprightly Dorothy. “See— I’ll carry It over to the Browns with out any trouble,” but her progress in sustaining the clumsy load caused Dale to step forward. “Can’t I be of any assistance?” he suggested. Yes, he could, and was, and a min ute later he and. Dorothy were one at each handle of the basket, conveying It across lots to a dilapidated old cot tag* three blocks distant. “You see,” explained Dorothy, “your aunt told us of the destitution and misery of a poor family. There are four little children and the mother is 111. Mother and I brought their wash- . Ing home and pitched In and laundered it, and we have quite adopted the fam ily, and—” “And you are real angels of mec cy!” enthused Dale sincerely, , Mrs. Smith had seen Mrs. Bruce and , Dorothy at the washtub. She was , also a witness to the co-operation of ' Dale In the delivery of-tlie basket. Im- 1 mediately her flat went forth that the Bruces must be nobodles, and that ’ Dale had ought to protect his standing with more d'gnity 1 She should not j encourage any social recognition of , the newcomers until she was satis- . lied that* they were 'something more TO THE PUBLIC I 4 We have purchased the iceVelivery business from J.
