Ituakln. . ttery one agreed that pretty Mrs; Lester's besetting sin was indolence, "Of course, nii,; woman cuid hnve ptetty hands nnd well-manicured nails If site didn't ever have to do nnything," said Sirs. Lnndls, the bonrdlng-houso keeper, to the old maid school teacher, who replied promptly : "Yes, nnd any woman could seem light-hearted If she didn't have a carei or trouble In (he world." " As n matter of fact, Mrs. Lester" was indolent. ISut she was not altogether happy. If any one had asked Mrs. Lester why she. boarded Instead of kefplng house she would have said It wim be cause her husband choso to live (tint way. They had always done It in die' three years of their married life. The boarding house was convenient to the big factory whore her husband worked Hnd houses were not plentiful. ISut sometimes fl single tear lingered in those soft brown eyes of hers and there was n fleeting note of sadness in her voice. Then came the time wheivMrs. Lnn dls' son had pneumouln at college. It didn't prove to be n burd case, but it was sutlicleutly ulurmiug to make It necessary for Mrs. Lnndls to pack her wicker suitcase nnd betake her portly person to the college town. She Mopped long enough to give lite cook directions for ordering ami to commit tlte cure of the 'M boarders to her keeping. Then she went to Mrs. Les ter's room und told tier. "1 know I Can't do much," said Mrs. Lester, "but It makes n lot of work for poor Martha. Let me do the ordering while you are'gouo-" This happened Just aftor breakfast, so that Mrs. Lester went marketing that morning at nine nnd bought even more economically than would Mrs. I.aiidls htuwlf, und no one at tlte hoarding bouse knew t lie difference. For Mrs. Lester, though she suld noth ing of it even to bed husband, was pleased with her achievement. Lester returned to the factory ottlco that night, and Mrs. Lester sut alone. It wus eleven when lie first-heard Mar tliu's call for help poor, fut Martha, whose age was beginning to toll In an occasional heart attack. Only Mrs. Lester beard tlte call for help and went tiptoeing up to the gar ret bedroom to be of assistance. And theu come the doctor, who as wired Mrs. Lester that a few days of fest would put Marthu back on the working list ugalri. , By the time Mr. Lester came hack from .lite factory Mrs. LoMcr was tucked in among her pillows us re poseful as If bite hud lain there all tlte evening. Iii. the tnortlliig'sho slipped from her room at live blandly lying to her litis bund tba't bhe was cold and had gone to rest In u' warmer room 'that 'had re cently beoir'Vucnted; ' And us 'Mrs. Lester seldom took breakfast with hor hiishaltd, he never gnessoil that while he was caring she was working furi ously iu the kitchen, nor dreamed that the coffee and cereal, bacon, eggs and muffins were nil the result of his wife's efforts with the cookbook nnd stove. After breakfast Mrs. Lester ordered quickly and deftly over the 'phone, anil theu came the .stupendous undertaking Of getting M luncheons ready for the men nl (lie factory jj 11:30. Then cnitic dinner, and though Mrs1. Lester's arms ached from the unaccus tomed labor, and though she was al most dropping under the task, she was supremely happy. She hud left a note iu her husband's room Pitying that she had gone to spend the day with u friend and would not he Ironic till nine, and at that hour she stoic Into Mrs. Landis' room long enough lo put on her big cloak and hat that she had left there for Hint purpose. Then, pinch ing n little color Into her tired face, she tripped smilingly Into her litis band's room. It hnd been n wonderful day of achievement, and she could hardly wait till Mrs. Lnndls returned she was due nt (en that night to bear what site would say. "Such n wonderful day as 1 have had!" she said to her husband by way of explaining the happiness that she knew must be shining from her face. "Wonderful days," mocked her hus band ; "yes, and 1 have been slaving at the ollice. Girlie, I'm getting tired of this lust n little. I'd like to have n little house of our own, but 1 don't dare to suggest it. You're too much of a doll. It's worrying over that be sides worrying over the business that keeps me so low-hearted." "And you have wanted to keep house nnd huven't told nio," she whispered. "And for all these months and yenrs I've longed for something to do nnd didn't dare nsk you" I'.nt that was all she had time to say, for Mrs. Landis rushed through the half-opened doort She had arrived and Martha, now down stairs for the first time, hnd told her. "Iilcss your heart." she said, putting her motherly arms nroiind the wife. "Say. Mr. Lester, with a wife thai can enter, order nnd cook for 'M and not let any one know nbout It. you ought ! to be as proud as I'unch. Cut thnt's i the way with , some women. They're I lucky nt everything they attempt from running n boarding house to ma king u man happy." And us Mrs. Lnndls went out of the room again the husband took his tired little wife in his nrms. "She's right. You have made nte happy and I am proud." he whispered. (Copyright, IStl". ty the McClur Newspa per Syndicate.)

As a school master I urn only too well aware that fathers with such normal sons see un mistakable signs of budding genius in (his natural ability of youth; but n an ordinary Individual I am disposed to class these deluded parents with those whose sons have "never -told a lie."
