READ <©• ».N. by Tilt* Ice on Placid |ake was at j best, nnd the skaters glided merrily > Its smooth, translucent surface In great numbers. Among them, on this particular afternoon, was Doris Buskin. who was being pursued by three of the most popular young men of the town, each of Whom sought the privilege of ac companying her home. But the girl was n dexterous skater, and she led them a merry clmge around the lake, keeli ng well ahead of them until she was nearly exhausted. Then in her ex citement, as she turned her henil to see how closely she was pursued, she bumped Into somebody with great force, and they both went sprawling on the Ice, “Oh, Billy, I'm sorry. Did I hurt you? She could not restrain her laughter when she saw the blank look on his face as he picked himself up and clumsily assisted her to her feet. "No. Are you hurt?" Oorts had turned her ankle, and found that she could not walk without support. “I guess I hurt my ankle,” she said. “Would you mind taking off my skates?" He assisted her to a sent on the shore, and proceeded to remove the skates. He was very much confused at first, for Billy Weston was not at all popular among the young people of the town, especially the girls. Even In high school he had been regarded by his classmates as a queer sort of a chap. But Doris Ituskin, who had been In his class, had always pitied him, and wished that they might become better acquainted, sp she took this oppor tunity. “I guess I’ll 1iave to ask you to assist me home, Billy, for I really can’t walk alone.” She chatted gaily all the way home, telling of her experience at a business college, and later of her new position In the bank. “By the way, Billy, what have you been doing since graduation?” she In quired. The boy's ' “ad drooped. What had he done? Ail he could truthfully say was. "Nothing.” “Why,” the girl ejaculated, “1 thought you were going to be a news paper man. You always had such big Ideas at school, you know.” “Yes, that’s just it, Doris, big ideas and that is all. I just can’t get any where. I’ve written and written, stories, advertisements and everything else, but no one would buy them. ‘No pep,’ they always* say. And here I am, broke, without even a typewriter. That would help me Immensely in my writing, hut—oh. what’s the use!’’ “You poor hoy,” Doris said, consol ingly. “I wish I could help you.” "Thanks, but It’s no use. I'm a hopeless failure. They had reached her home, and as he turned to lenve he took her band. “Doris,” he said, softly, "I don’t know why I told you all that I did. Some how you seemed so friendly and kind —so different from the others.” “I’m glad you did tell me,” Doris said, “for I think I can help you. Won’t you come over tomorrow even ing and bring some of the ads you have written? I have a typewriter, i von know, and I should like very much to see some of your work. The next evening BlITy cnrhe. arin ’ tfiey sat down 'ogether to look over hlR work. "These ads are great!” the girl cried enthuslasticnlly. It was several hours later when the.\ looked at the clock, and Billy urose to leave. They had worked hnrd and accomplished a lot of work. “Now, Mr. Billy." spoke the “gen eral manager,” "tomorrow the hlg work begins. You take these ads and show them to the managers of all the principal stores In town. Tell them that they need your ads; that the use of them In the dally newspapers will double and treble their trade. Make them buy. Don’t take ‘No’ for an I answer.” The nf'xt evening Billy rushed into Doris’ house without even rlngdig (he bell. He was brimming over with en thusiasm, and his dark eyes sparkled cs they had not sparkled in years. “They took ’em!” he tried. “Thought they were great. I’ve sold every one and have orders for more." The good work continued, and for week® and months the two labored on untiringly, selling their work as fast ns they could produce It. Then the climax came. A large newspaper con corn in a nearby city heard of Wes ton’s work, and he obtained a very promising position as assistant ad vertising manager. On the evening before his departure for the city, he called on Doris, and found her strolling In the garden Billy thought she looked more beauti ful titan ever; but. for the first time, he noticed a tired, worn-out expres sion on iter face, which had always been so happy and smiling. Words failed him for the moment, as he gazed lovingly at the girl who hod made a man of him, and made his life wortli living. Suddenly he took Iter hand and pressed it fervently to his lips. “Doris.” he whispered, “you have worked hard for me. and worn your self old. and I haven’t even thanked you. I did not realize until just now how much you have done. Dearest, I can’t think of going ahead alone, for I want1 you always to lie my ‘general manager.' Will you come?” She an swered with a shy little nod, and he drew her into his arms. KEPT HER AWAKE The Terrible Pains m Beck ari Sides. Cardui Gave Relief.

The room is as cool as my front porch. Even when I bend over my stover, I scarcely feel the heat from it." The class in rtorae Economics sighed. Most of them were still cooking over coal and wood stoves and the thought of going home and cooking dinner in a hot kit chen hung over their afternoon. The instructor went on: “I would no more try to keep house without Natural Gas than I would try to draw my water from a pump. “I can cook a better meal, without getting hot and tired, and clean up in half the time. I remember, when I had a wood stove, how the heat lingered and I used ti stop and go stand in the door for a breath of air, and when it was done, with what relief I shut the door upon my kitchen."
