The victim of green tea drinking was haunted by a monkey, or some beast of the ape tribe, that appeared to him on every possible occasion. Once, when he thought he was quit of it.

I©, 1920, by McClure N#v.'wap#*r Syndicate ) There was an n!r of expectancy about the place, as though It had been waiting for centuries for deliverance from the ties that held it there. Even Ellas f’pton, station agent, general stor>- proprietor and postmaster, lay back In his chair against the wall of the station and slept soundly as the train rattled In, stopped to let a pas senger off, and went out again. The departing train left Elizabeth Ann standing on the platform with a suitcase In each hand. Not a human being was In sight, except the station agent, and It was with some misgiv ings that she spoke to him. Still he slept, and it took a sharp poke to awaken him. “Bless them files!” said Elias, as he slapped at a fly reposing on his bald head. Then he sleepily opened one eye and saw Elizabeth Ann. “Well—what do you want?” he said. “Can you tell me where Mrs. El well lives?” “Yes, but she went to Boston this morning on business, so she said. Be hack Saturday," drawled Elias. “Did you everHow could she for BEGINNING JUNE 1, 1920. WE WILL REDUCE OUR SELLING COST, AND PASS THE SAVING ALONG TO OUR CUSTOMERS.

Then to Elias: “It’s certain I've got to stay, now I’m here; so if you will tell me how to get there, I'll keep house until she comes.” After directions as to where to find the key, she started out, and in a short time came to a little white house set far back from the road. The cur tains were drawn, and the porch chairs piled up in one corner of the veranda. “I didn’t know Aunt Mira had such a pretty place, but it must be the one. He said the key was behind the blind for the ice man, so I can get in all right.” The house was prettily furnished, and after opening up some windows. Elizabeth Ann foraged the pantry and refrigerator and found plenty to ent. She went to bed about nine o’clock in what appeared to be the guest room, as Elizabeth Ann had been invited by her aunt, Mira Elwell, to spend her vncation with her at Brookside. Eliz abeth Ann had never been there be fore. and did not know much about Aunt Mira, except that she was her mother’s favorite sister. The first two days and nights passca I without Interruption, but on the third ] night Elizabeth Ann was awakened In the night by an automobile coming up the drive. Some one unlocked the door j and soon Elizabeth Ann heard voices below in the kitchen. She opened her bedroom door and listened, wondering if it were burglars. “Srty, ’"other,” said a masculine Try a bottle of LA CREOLE HAIR D NG the original hair color restore.' $1 00 P^R ROTTL FREE DELIVERY BUCHANAN DRUG STORE PHONE 67 WE PAY THE POSTAGE voice, “h» re s a pink sweater and some other things I never saw before.” “And some one’s eaten what we left in the refrigerator. There has been some one in this honse. Looks like a strange woman was in this house now.” At this Elizabeth Ann hastily slipped on a kimono and cap and stepped out into the hall, but drew back as a young man came up the stairs. “Well, who are you?” he asked. “I think I might ask you the same question,” retorted the girl. “What are you doing in this house in that costume?” said the man. “I have every right in the world to be in this house,” was the reply. “Come, young lady; let’s get down to business. Who are you?” “My name is Elizabeth Ann Taylor, and I am keeping house until my aunt gets back from Boston. She Invited me to spend my vacation with her; so here I am,” was the answer. “Mother, do you know this young lady?” lie asked, as his mother ap peared at his side. By this time the lady addressed as “mother” took the matter In hand, as she saw the girl’s embarrassment. “Who is your aunt, my dear?” she asked. “Mrs. Elwell. my mother’s sister Mira,” replied Elizabeth Ann. “There is some mistake. I’m not Mira Elwell, although my name is El well. Why, Robert, she must mean the Miss Elwell on the Lane road. How stupid of me not to have remembered her before.” “Then this isn't my aunt’s house, and I’ve eaten up all your food, and—” By this time Elizabeth Ann was in tears. Robert Elwell, for this was Mrs. Eiwell’s son, walked out and left the two women alone. Mrs. Elwell arranged that Elizabeth Ann should stay with her until some time the next day, when Robert would drive her over to Aunt Mira’s. When the mistake was explained to Aunt Mira the next dny she laughed over it, and she and Mrs. Elwell began an acquaintance which they never gave up. While they talked together. Eliz abeth Ann and Robert picked an arm ful of beautiful old-fashioned flowers for his mother. During the next three weeks Robert Elwell spent a great deal of his time with Elizabeth Ann. The momewtous time came, as it always does, and when the sparkling ring had been slipped on her finger, she exclaimed: “And the first time you saw me you thought I was a burglar.” “You were then, and you are now. for you stole my heart, and it’s oniy fair that I play burglar now myself." was the reply. v The Reason. "Why does water run?" “M has to; It is a chaser.” Opals Growing on Trees. Opals grown on trees is one of the latest discoveries of. science. Such “stones” are now on exhibition In the American Museum of Natural History, New York. These ‘‘opals” were grown In Humboldt county, Nevada, several thousand- years ago, by the slow processes of nature. They were fo. tri ced from trees which were evidently uprooted and burled In a swamp during some earthquake. The trees, many feet under water, became waterlogged snags, and then became petrified. The swamp water bad become heavily charged with a solution of silica, w'hlch acted upon and changed the na ture of the wood! while preserving Its1 structure. In course of time the wood became “opal,” and can scarcely he distinguished from the genuine article. —Leslie's Weekly.
