C., former resident of Edenton. is Caroline Chatfield Says [A Man Who Has a Sordid Sob Story to Ted! Can Make Faster Time Willi a Girl Than One Who Conies \\ oh Straightforward Approach. Appeal to a ^ onng GhTs i Pilv, and She Answers With Love and Kisses. DEAR MISS CHATFIELD: . .... ... . I am seventeen and the man is thirty. We know we have a real case of love but there are things in the way. lie has been married and divorced. His faith in women was destroyed and lie took to drink but since lie has been in love with me has quit, though some say he still drinks. Our family is truly aristocratic and I have always been careful of my associates until now I am raady to throw family to the winds to marry him. My parents, friuids and relatives dis approve of him because he had two sisters Uiat missed the straight and narrow. But a brother is a respected and prominent citi/.en in his town. The family and I have heated arguments over his skeletons but I insist he couldn't have to atone for his sisters' sins when he is all right himself. I shall appreciate a stranger's opinion because it will be unbiased. Please express yourself. U. II. P. ANSWER: This stranger's opinion coincides exactly with the unanimous opinion of your parents, friends and relatives. They couldn't all be wrong. You are too young to get married; you arc too young to reckon with the problems that such a marriage will create. The man has once resorted to the bottle to drown his sorrows and having once discovered that drink is an anesthetic he will again resort to the bottle when things don't pan out to suit him. There is evidently a wide social gap between you apart from the fart that there is a sordid story iu connection with his sisters. There is every reason for fear that your marriage would end in tragedy. No wonder your parents are frantic at seeing you swept o?T youi feet by a man whose family and personal history is out of keeping with your traditions! It is a queer thing that a man who has a sordid sob story to tell can make much faster time with a girl than one who comes up with a straightforward approach. Let him appeal to her pity for his unhappy past and she answers with love and kisses. Let him tell her he has no faith in females and she will accept the implied challenge to restore his faith regardless of the consequences. She sees herself as an angel of mercy, heaven-sent to comfort the poor creature, tc make up up to him for what he has missed. All the while there burns in her breast a fierce pride in her mission. The more innocent anc: inexperienced she is the harder she falls for the sob stuff. And the more wicked and experienced he is the faster he feeds it to her. Lassies, beware of sophisticated gentlemen who feed you sob stuff with large spoons. A real man doesn't try to jimmy his way into a girl's heart with an appeal to her pity. CAROLINE C11ATFIELO.

Ifc drives her to the Marsh hotpc where her widowed . mother, l*luvanr,at a warm bcartcij, scltrsaciiiiciug and 'unflerstanding soul,' welcomes her. Kezia's sister, Mar gery, pbiitui and matronly with the care 'i f three children,-is at .lunch? with them. Iftiyltis wife, Dorrie, has pleaded a prcvi? ons engagement. Fluvanna Marsh wakens the next morning from a dream aljout her late husband, Jim. whose unstable charac ter she fears Kezia has inherited. F.llcn I'endlcton comes over. She is an artistically inclined girl. She happily tells Fluvanna she has become engaged to Jerry Purdue. Kllen fears that her father and mother, flavin and Lizzie, will not approve the match. Ifugh and Dorrie go out to the Freeland Farms to dance with their friends, t'un and Joan Whitney. Whitney, who has heen out of work, announces that he has a new position.

She muses over the resemblance of Kezia to her late husband, recalling bow temperamental, moody an/1 improvident lie bad been. CHAPTER V?Continued ?9? The memories became a moving p'cture screen reproducing scenes in flashes, scenes impervious to the assault of time. Friends, par tics, the birth of Hugh, financial pressure, disagreements and the sweet toll of reconciliation. Jim, gay, hopeful, magnetic; Jim, mo rose, silent. He always dominated the picture with that positive driv ing force of his, perverse, lii-con sidcrcd, but a power, nevertheless. She thought sadly that it was hu man nature to love those persons best who had a streak of per versity in their make-up. Or per haps one is only more aware of that love?they test it so. Several times he had been forced to borrow from her father to meet various demands, but was never able to repay the loans. After the death of her mother and his losses in the stock market, Jim's habit of drinking increased. Ho did not use soft words when he drank. Some inner demon spoke in cruel, vindictive phrases. When she saw him after one of those nights when he had come in with stumbling, uncertain steps, his handsome face puffy, his hand trembling so he could scarcely hold the coffee cup, she was amazed at the conflict of love and hate which struggled in her. He reminded her of bleary old Tom Gaveney who took away the rubbish . . . But it was really Jim, her husband, to whom she was bound for life. Their three children, Margery, Hugh and Kezia were at school and might come home any time. No one must know?no one at all. Draw the blinds. Send the maid to tht laundry. Telephone the office that he wasn't well. Head up; smile at friends and strangers. The banner of pride must float bravely while the craft is sinking. And then that day. The freshly ironed shirts and children's garments lay on the bed. Put this pile in Hugh's room; sew the lace on Margery's dress; socks of varying sizes, colors must be sorted, mended; a stitch here, a button there . . . She had never been able to put away freshly - laundered clothes since without a leaden feeling, for suddenly she looked up and saw Jim. He was standing by'the chiffon ier, one elbow on it, watching her. ,vood cemetery. 1 Services vert conducted by Rev. M. O. Me.tcn .castor of the Methodist Church Mr. II. S. Williams, Tyrrell County Game Warden, made four rr rests Saturday. Mr. George Stutton and J. A.

Directors of Englehard Bank Trust Co., were in Columbia Mon day negotiating with the busi ness men of Tyrrell for cstablish uc nt of a branch of tlieir bank cl T.nglehard. They reached an a .lccmcnt, and will establish a oank here providing the venture :s approved by the Federal depos it insurance commission, as this bank is governed under this pro vision. "Jim! Y.ou home? Have you had your lunch?" He did not answer at once. His ^aze was somber but pot unkind. He sat down in a chair and mo tioned for her to take one. A foreboding gripped her. She watched his hands, lean, restless, clutching'the aViirofthe chair un til, they were'White fit the knuck les!. An odd ring on his little finger ?a ring which he had inherited from his father?was raised into prominence.' "I'm in a bad way, Fluvanna." "Sick?" He shook his head. Her glance hardened. "Money again? I?Jim, you know ' "Yes, I know what you're going to say. You've done a lot. Helped me out a dozen times. But this time?this time"?he struck the arm of the chair with his fist? "you must! Must, I say" She rose without a word, went over to the bed, gathered up some of the garments and put them in a drawer. She wouldn't ... she wouldn't. Draining away every thing she had. She had been too easy. She had to . think of her children, their education, future "I.must have $15,0C0!" The sum startled her. For what? ... "I haven't it. You know I haven't." His eyes swept the room, came back to her. "Sell something. Put a mortgage on the house." "I won't. Nothing can make me." "Won't, eh?" His lips curled in a hateful smile. "You'd rather see your husband go to the peniten tiary, I suppose." The penitentiary? His words re sounded like the echo of waves, and the blood seemed to slip quietly away from her body, leaving only llcsh and nerves. The penitentiary ? "I don't believe you," she said faintly. He did not reply. Then scarcely knowing what she was doing, she went into the adjoining room where Kezia slept. Kezia had left a leg less doll on the floor. Mechanically she picked it up and put it into the closet. Then Jim was in the doorway. He was holding a revolver idly in his hand. Horror froze in her. Was he going to kill himself?before her? . . . But,he pointed it at her. "Jim, you wouldn't. Don't?try to be funny," she gasped. "I must have it before four o'clock." She smelled the odor of whiskey. "Stop waving that revolver around! You know it's loaded." "So it is." She backed away from him, out into the hall. She wanted to call him a coward and a bully, but she yv; s too terrified. There was some thing brooding and insane in his look. "You say you won't?" "I can't. How can you threaten me this way? What if the children should see you?" "You could borrow it on your steel stock." "I borrowed the last on that." "Will you telephone Kimball? He's waiting." Her thoughts raced. If she could get away from him until he came to his senses! "I won't do any thing until you lay that revolver down!" He looked at her and then at the weapon sullenly. "I'll keep it un til you go through with it." Escape? . . . Escape? . . . Be hind her was the attic door. Why hadn't she run downstairs?out in to the yard? It was in her mind to gain the maid's room and lock the door. She whirled and ran up the stairs. He caught up with her as she was closing the door, grasped her by the shoulders. "Give me time to think! . . . You are frighten ing me to death!" she moaned. Last Year Most Difficult ?
