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
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
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
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.

Wns there ever n normal hoy who did

Then the men-haul would rub It in by
offering to bet that the other iii.'tu

The bet was always eagerly and Indig
