The room someway was Indicative of Uncle Horace, rest ful In Its quiet dignity. Alan had been mentioned as one of Uncle Horaces heirs, the property to be shared with a certain young woman, whose mother the elder man had loved long ago, and hud failed in winning. Alan had recently met this young woman and had not been especially Impressed. Cheerful and pretty, too, It must be admitted, was Miss Nora Barry. She was now Uncle Horace’s guest In the big house to which Alan had come through nil hlg school vaca tions to pass happy days. Uncle Horace veiled his disappoint ment when Alan decided against law, which was his own profession, but he could but be gratified in his favorite'* i V— -j*. . .

Preoccupied, Alan walked the length of the living room. Who, ho meditated, might feel entirely anre of Lois? Today assuring him, hei dark eyes hurt by his doubting—of heir loyalty.

He could see In memory his young mother’s hands on his father's heed, soothing, encouraging. Alan's father had known reverses—struggle. Alan’e sweet mother had been the great com pensation. True, understanding, un selfish. “You make me mad," euuie the rollicking song—^"You make me glad" —It ended In a crash of keys and Lois’ wild laughter. Tears were creeping through Alan's fingers—how V>ng one tender memory hud power to stir. Some one came Into the room; he arose hurriedly. The scent of heli otrope increased—the young women who entered wore a knot of the flower on the breast, of her white frock. She smiled up at him. and her voice wes softly plseslng—“You remsmbsr me? I am Nora Barry. Your uncle asked me to bring tee to him here; he has returned from a tiring game. Will you Join us?" Alan was confusedly aware that tears wars visible in his eyes.

Later he looked across the table to where Nora Barry eat. "My dear," aald Uncle Horace, “you grow more like your mother every day.” Alan watched the glow thaj ever spread the girl's sweet face; he was seeing for the first time that long apt sweetheart of hie ancle’s, whose lose he had ever deplored. "She cared for the other man,” Uncle Horace ex plained with a certain proudnsea, “and Nora Barry was too true to marry for my money." So, through the years of hla disap pointment Unda Horace was faithful to his Ideal. And Nora Barry grew more and more like that mother, Uasle Horace declared. “I will play for you," Nora offered. Alan went and leaned ever the grand piano at the and of the room. Be had not known that music had such power to soothe. Slowly he walked to the fireplace where the scarlet trumpet flamed. “It has no perfume —to last,” he said. Irreverently. "But," Uncle Horace answered, “Just a flare of color to hold the eye—at tractive for a time." Alan went back to the piano. Nora raised her blue eyes to his—anxiety In their gase lest his mysterious sor row had not been dispelled. Sudden ly he knew that It wes for his di version that she had hopefully given her music. He smiled down upon her —to him came gratefully the perfume of heliotrope. Helmet Worn by Magellan.

ROCKY MOUNT 7 ROANOKE RAPIDS 4 The Rocky Mount high school administered the first defeat of the season to the Roanoke Rap ids football team on the gridiron of the former Saturday after noon by the close score of 7 to 4. The lone touchdown scored by the Rocky Mount Club was the result of an effort to drop kick for field gold which bounded against the Roanoke Rapids safety man during his effort to allow the ball to roll in to the end zone, whereby a touchdown would have resulted. The Rocky Mount player was in a fortunate position to fall upon the ball near the goal line and in a sin gle play the ball went over. In three attempts, to drop kick tht ball bounded into the hands of Rocky Mount and*during the en tire game they got the breaks, without exception. It is very un usual when a team is able to score two safeties, as was done by Roanoke Rapids, for the score to be as low as in this game, It was the opinion of some of the Rocky Mount fans that the lo cals were the stronger team by two touchdowns. It is probable that the two teams will meet again in the first game of the State Championship series. Score by quarters.
