Sidney, all vibrant eager ness, luminous of eye, quick of bosom; and Wilson. sardonically smiling, aaMused and interested in spite of him self. lie drew a long breath, and thrust the. note into his pocket. As he went down the Street, Wil. son's car came around the corner. Le [ Moyne moved quietly into the shadow of the church and watched the car go by. CHAPTER V. "And so." K. Le Moyne, "you liked it all? It didn't startle you?" "Well. in one way, of course-you see. I didn't know it was quite like that: all order and peace and quiet, and white beds and whispers, on top you know what I mean-and the misery there just the saine. Have you ever gone through a hospital?" K. Le Moyne was stretched out on lhe grass, his arms under his head. For this excursion to the end of the street car line lie fad donned a pair of white tlannel trousers and a belted Norfolk coat. Sidney had been di vided between pride in his appearance and fear that the Street would deem him overdressed. At her question he closed his eyes, shutting out . the peaceful arch of leaves and the hit of blue heaven over head. He did not reply at once. "Good gracious, I believe he's asleep !" Said Sidney. But lie opened his eyes and smiled at her. "I've been around hospitals a little. I suppose now there Is no question about your going?" "The superintendent said I was young, but that any protegee of Doe t0 Wilsou's would certainly be given a chance." "It Is hard work, night and day." "Do you think I am afraid of work?" "And-Joe?" Sidney colored vigorously and sat erect. "He is very silly. He's taken all sorts of idiotic notions in his head. I haven't Promised to marry him." "But lie thinks you mean to. If you have (quite made up your mind not to, bette" tell him. don't you think? What -what tire these idiotic notions?" Sidney consiitered. "For one thing. he's jealous of you !" "I see. Of course that is silly, al thougi your attitude toward his sus picimn is hardly Ilattering to mel" le smilied up at her. "I told him that I had asked you to bring mae here today. He was furious. And that wasn't ill." "No?" 'lHe said I was flirting desperately with Doctor Wilson. You see, the day we went through the hospital, it was hot, and we went to Henderson's for soda water. And, of course, Joe was there. It was really dramatic." K. Le Moyne was daily gaining the ability to see things from the angle of the Street. A month ago lie could have sten no situation In two people. a man -*1 geter een it abo loeronth next sool. ow heould iwting 6: thrug Joe' trit e e.Anthr wa moe ha ha. lldy e a ion Hntmied to Munrsrygeon. anwd afgr therirstking ind waer tof wasx stid. ownh"erisevewlfu.g "Maoth Je' s plaitelyesgned-th vAusn areta hat. been ayp he' tgoingtr to tpher young Isren.u tody'o." v ougbritlre "Two me?"h isttmei erlf ATo your staying on.

Was rath istartled1. lIe felt old endUtkt/ Oo knew, but hie had always thought of '1 as an age of the spirit. Hie rose to hi ~:feet and threw back his fine shoulders a- "Aunt Harriet and your niother an O .h~tletn and her husban4-to-be, wha ~ q~' ~ ii'a Is-e'll hal family. But, I warn you, if i ever hear of Christine's husb.and getting an apos tle spoon--" She smiled up at him. "You are looking very grand today. But you have grass strains on your white trou sers. Perhaps Katie can take them out." Quite , suddenly K. felt that she thought him too old for such frivolity of dress. It put him on his mettle. "How old do you think I am, Miss Sidney?" "Not over forty, I'm sure." "I'm almost thirty. It is middle age, of course, but-it Is not senility." Clearly the subject of his years did not interest her vitally, for she harked back to the grass stains. "I'm afraid you're not saving, as you promised. Those are new clothes, aren't they?" "No, indeed. Bought years ago in England-the coat in London, the trousers in Bath, on a motor tour. Cost something like twelve shillings. Awful ly cheap. They wear them for cricket." That was a wrong move, of course. Sidney must hear about England; and she marveled politely, in view of his poverty, about his being there. Poor Le Moyne floundered in a sea of men dacity. rose to a truth here and there, clutched at luncheon, and achieved safety at last. "To think," said Sidney, "that you have really been across the -ocean! I never knew but one person who had been abroad. It is Dr. Max Wilson." Back again to Doctor Max! Le Moyne, unpacking sandwiches from a basket, was aroused by a sheer resentt ment to indiscretion. "You like this Wilson chap pretty well, don't you?" "What do you mean?" "You talk about him rather a lot." This was slicer recklessness, of course. He expected fury, annihilation. He did not look up, but busied him self with the luncheon. When the si lence gr'w oppressive, he ventured to glance toward her. She was leaning forward, her chin cupped in her palms, staring out over the valley that stretched at their feet. "Don't speak to me for a minute or two," she said. "I'm thinking over what you have just said." Down through the valley ran a shal low river, making noisy pretensions to both (lepth and fury. He remembered just such a river in the Tyrol, with this same WN'ilson on a rock, holding the hand of a pretty Austrian girl, while he snaipped the shutter of a camera. He had that picture somewhere now; but the girl was dead, and, of the three, Wilson was the only one who had met life and vanquished it. "I've known him all my life," Sid ney said at last. "You're perfectly right about one thing: I talk about 1hm and I think about him. I'm being candid, because what's the use of be ing friends if we're not frank? I ad mire him-you'd have to see him in the hospital, with everyone deferring to him and all that, to understand. And when you think of a man like that, who holds life and death in his hands, of course you rather thrill. I-I-hon estly believe that's all there is to it." "If that's the whole. thing, that's hardly a mad passion." He tried to smile; succeeded faintly. "Well, of course, there's this, too. J knowv he'll nev'er look at mue. I'll be one of forty nurses; indeed, for three months I'll be only a probationer. He'll p~robabily never eveni reumember I'm in the hospital at all." "I see. Then, it you thought lhe was in love with you, things wvould be dif ferent ?" "if I thought Dr'. Max Wilson was in Jove with me," said( Sidney solemnly, "I'd go out of my head with joy." To hide the shock with which he r'ealized that she was, unknowvn to her' self', alreadly in the throes of a roman tic attachment for Wilson, K. suggest ed a (descenit to the riv'er. She accept edl eager'ly, and lhe helped her dowvn. Th'lat wats another memory that out lasted tihe dlay-her small warm hand in his; the time she slipped and he caught her ; the pain in her eyes at one of his thoughtless remarks. "I'm going to be pretty lonely," he said, when she had paused in the de* scent and wvas taking a stone out of her low shoe. "I shall hate to come home at night." And then, seeing her wince: "I've been wvhining all day. For heaven's sake, don't look like that. If there's one sort of man I detest more than another, it's a man wvho is sorry for himself. Do you suppose youm mother wvould object if wve stayed out here at tihe hotel for supper? I've or dered a moon, orange-yellow and extra size," "I should hate to have anything or dered and wasted." "Then wve'll stay." "It's fearfully extravagant." "I'll be thrifty as to moons while yoi are in the hospital." So it was settled. And, as it hap pened, Sidney had to stay, anyhow For, having perched herself out in the i river on a sugar-loaf rock, she slid a slowly but with a dreadful inevitabli y ity, into the water, K. happened to b< looking in another direction. So it oc curred that at one moment Sidney sai a on a rock, fluffy white from head t< s feet, entrancingly pretty, and knowinj s it, and the nest she was standing neci a deep in water, much too startled t< t scream, and trying to be dignified uin der the rather tryig circumstances. K e had not looked around. The splash hai -been.:a gentle one. "If!l yqu w'1l1;be good enlolh," sait Sidiney, with her chin wvel1 up, "to giv4 *t me your hand or a vole or something s because if the river rises an inch] 3. shall drown." d To his undying credit, K. Le Moyn4 t- did not laugh when he turned and aan v' her. Hie went out ona the sngar.aoe and lifted her bodily np its slipper) sides. Ile had prodigious strength, in spite of his lea'tiess. "WA'eil !" saitd Sidney, whiie they were both onil the rock. carefully balanced. "Are you cold?" "Not a bit. But holribly untihappy. I Must look a sight." Then. remembering her manners. as the Street had it, she said primly: "Thank you for saving me." "There wasn't any danger, really, unless-unless the river had risen." And then, suddenly. he burst into'de lighted laughter. the first, perhaps, for um1onths. Ile shook with it. struggled at the sight of her injured face to re strain it, achieved finally a degree of sobriety by tixintg his eyes on the river bank. "1 nen you have quite finshed," said Sidney severely, "perhaps you will take me to the hotel. I dare say I shall have to be washed and troned." Ile dOrew her 4'au itioisly to her feet. IIer Twet skirts elung to her; her shoes were sodden andi heavy. Slhe (lg to hIllil frantiaally. her eyes on the river below. With the touch of hitr' hands the m1an's mirth died. lie held lier very carefully, vtry tenderly, as one hold. somtething infinitely precious. CHAPTER Vi. Operations were over for the after noon. The last case had been wheeled out of the elevator. The pit of the op orating room was in disorder-towels everywhere, tables of instruments, stemming stertili7etrs. Orderlies were goi.g about, carrying out linens, empty Ing pans. At a table two nurses were cleaning instruments and putting thet away in their glass cases. Irrigators were being emptied ponges recounted and checked off on - ritten lists. In the midst of th.. confusion, Wilson stood giving last orders to the interne at his elbow. As he talked he scoured his hands and arms with a small brush: bits of lather flew off on to the tiled floor. ills speech was incisive. vigorous. At the hospital they said his nerves were iron; there was no let down after the day's work. The in ternes worshiped and feared him. He was just, but without mercy. To he able to work like that, so certainly, with so sure a tonel, and to look like a Greek god ! Wilson's only rival, a gynecologist named O'Hara. got re suIts. too: but he sweated and swore through his operations. was not too catreful as to asepsis, and looked like a gorilla. The day had beent a hard one. The operating-roon nurses were fagged. Two or three probationers had been sent to help clean up. and a senior nurse. Wilson's eyes caught the nurse's eyes as she passed him. "Here, too. Miss Harrison !" he said gayly. "Have they set you on My trail?" With the eyes of the room on her, the girl answered primly: "I'm to be in your office in the morn ings, Doctor Wilson, and anywhere I am needed in the afternoons." "And your vacation?" "I shall take it when Miss Simpson comes back." I Although he went on at once with his conversation with the interne, he still heard the click of her heels about the room. He had not lost the fact thai she had flushed .when he spoke to her, Tile mischief that was latent in ii came to the surface. When he hadi rinsed his hands, he followed her, car, rying the towe-l to where she stoodi talkin g to the superintendent of the training school. "Thanks very much. Miss Gregg," he saidi. "Everyshing went. (off nicely." Ile was in a malgnanimouts mood. He smiled at Miss Gre'gg, who was elderi4 anid gray, but visibly his creature. "Thle sponge list, dloctor." Hie glancedi ov'er ita noting accur-ate ly sponiges prepared, used, turned In But 1h4 miissed no gestur-e of the gir wvho stood beside Miss Gregg. "All right." lie returned the list "That was a mighty pretty probationet I brought you yesterday." Two small frowning lines appear-et between Miss Harrison's dark brows Hie caught themt, caught her sombei eyes too, and was amused and rathei stimulated. "She is very young." "Prefer 'em young." said Docto, IMar. "Willing to learn at that age You'll hav-e to watch her, though. You'l have all the internes buzzing around Ineglecting business." Miss Gregg rather fluttered. Shi was divided between her disapprova of internes at all times and of younj probationers generally, and hoer alle glance to the brilliant surgeon whosi w iordl was rapidhly becoming lawi~ in the hospital. When an emergency of thi cleaning-up cailed her away, doub1 still in heri eyes, Wilson was left aloni with Miss4 hna-rison, if your daughter were in Sid ney's position now, would you fear Dr. Max Wilson'g Influence over her, or would you be glad she had such a friend in the hos pital?

The most important element in su ces Ls economy of mloney and time, MUST PREPARE FOR WEEVIL Co-operation and Organization Will Minimize Ravages of Boll Weevil In South Carolina. Fairfax.-Co-operation and organiza. tioni will be the weapons used . by South Carolina farmers and business men in an effort to minimize the ray ages.of the Mexican cotton boll weevil. South Carolina will be the first of the state in the cot.ton belt to adopt such methods to stabilize the agricul tural and economic conditions 'follow. ing the coming of the pest, which has already caused a loss in the state to the south of more than $1,000,000,000. More than 200 farmers, merchants, bankers, lawyers, doctors and other professional men met here in a con forence when a scheme of organization and co-operation, broad and compre hensive. which was prepared by W. W. Long, representing the farm demon striition work. Clemson college, and the South ('arolina boll weevil com mission. was unanimously adopted. The tight on the boll weevil started in earnest with the F ai-fax conference. it was very probaily the most repres entative gathering of men ever as sembled in South Carolina. The seven border counties. Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton. Barnwell. Aiken. Edgefield and McCormick counties sent repres entatives to the meeting. The plans as proposed by Mr. Long were well received by every man attending. Pest to Come Soon. A month ago there were thousands of farmers and business men who did not believe that .he boll weevil would invade this state. Not on mai at the Fairtleld conference did not believe that the pest would arrive. As a mat ter of fact the weevil has been found in Richmond county, seven miles from Augusta. and the representatives from the, border counties all realize that lie will cross the river early next year. The campaign of preparation must begin at once and every mal at the conference left with the determina tion to spread the news among his neighbors. The plan of organization as pro posed by Mr. Long and indorsed by the conference contains the following important points: Two farm demonstration agents will be appointed for each of the seven border counties, one to be paid by the government and - the other by the county. Seven of the most patriotic and trustworthy citizens in each county will be appointed to constitute the county boll weevil council. The council will work in co-opera tion with the government and Clem son college agents. Co-operative bool weevil clubs are to be organized in as many communi ties as possible in each county. The members of the clubs will meet every 60 days and submit written re ports as to how they are preparing for the cotton post. These reports will show the pro gressiveness of the members of the various clubs. The fat-mer-s are urged to begin at once a system of diversified agricul. ture and the "live at home move. ment" must be truly pr-acticed. That thle land owner~s furniish theit tenants with a brood sow and milli cow with sufficient pasturage. IThat the farmer-s begini next year to produce certain crops. including peanuts slid soy beans for the mar kets. That hogs be raised as feeders fot the packinig houses at Or-angeburg and Gr-eenville. "That we call up)on out people tc develop a community spitrit--the spir it of co-operation and unseilishness fot we believe that with a long pull all together the advent o ftiie boll weevil may in time comie to be looked uipoil as a 'blessing in disguise'" is the coniclusioti and one of the most im portant paragrraphs in the set of reso lutions adopted by the con ference. Champion Potatoe Grower. Columbia--J. W. Powell, a chain piotn potato grower in Richiand county has harvested this year 1,000 bushieh of -ch-loic-e sweet potatoes fr'om flive acres of slnd. Weather- cotnditionis this year seriously hamper-ed the fruitage of the crops. Mr-. Powell lasi season raised 2,000 bushels from fout -acr-es. SOUTH CAROLINA NJEWS ITEMS. The board of review of the South Carolitna tax commission has filed its report with Gov. Manning. The re port will not be given out for several days. Objection having been expressed by the war departmetnt it is probable that the name of Styx station on the South ern railway near the state mobilization grounds will be changed. The matter has been referred to Gov. Manning atid he will suggest a new niame for the station. Clifton, the 18-year-old soti of J. K.

SELL'ERS ACting Director of the Sunday School Uourse n the Moody Bible Instituto of Chicago.) (Copyright. 1916, Western Newspaper Union.) LESSON FOR DECEMBER 24 UNTO US A SON IS GIVEN. LESSON TEXT-Isaiah 9:1-7. GOLDEN TEXT-For unt4 us a child Is born, unto us a son Is givoet and the government shall be upona his iloulders; and his name shall be called Wonderful. Counsellor, the Mighty God, the IEverlast ing Father, the Prince o' Peace.-Nsa. 9:6. The Christmas lesson naturally and logically follows the three lessons we have just had from the book of the Itevelation where Jesus in his glory had been portrayed, and the ultimate success of his work is foreseen in the new heaven and the new earth. Isaiah saw the vision of his iirst coming. John saw the vision of his second coming, when what he began the first time shall ultimately be accomplished. The prophecy here spoken was uttered dur tng the reign of Ahaz, B. C. 738 to 723. The king of Assyria was attack ing Syria. The tribes of northern Is rael were carried away as captives. Judah was in danger of invasion. (See 11 -Kings 15:29.) Isaiah was preach ing in his home city, Jerusalem. His vision of the Messiah Savior was not more than 800 years before Joku saw the vision of the gloritied Jesus. 1. Darkness Versus Light (vv. 1-5). We need to go back, into the eightk chapter to get the full historical situa tion of this part of thf lesson. Ahas. trembling In Jerusalem, -had with him the Prophet Isaiah, the wisest and greatest man In his kingdom, yet Ahas listened not to his words of warning and rebuke. He doggedly pursued his own course and sought help in every other quarter than the right one. This explaius Isaiah's words, "The people that walked in darkness." Primarily he may have referred to those of the lands of Zebulon and Naphtall, the Galilee of the natious (John 1:46; 7:52) and the light which shone in them, which was the light of the world, Jesus of Nazareth (John 8:12). But there is a larger application in this verse to the whole worl'd which lay In dark'ness until Jesus came, and the whole world has seen) or shall see the great light (Luke 1:78-79). With the coming of light comes the increase of joy (v. 8 R. V.). In Israel there is to be, through Christ, a wonderful in crease (Isa. 49:20-22; Zech. 10:8). In Christ there is to be great joy, the joy of harvest and of victory. The re ligion of Jesus Christ is pre-eminently the religlcn of Joy (Acts 8:8; Phil. 4:4; I Peter 1:8) but the Child that was to be born was to be a Deliverer too, for the "yoke of burden" was a tax of $1,800,000 ,that had recently been levied by the king of Assyria. It was a night of thick darkness for Israel. Then, even as r.ow, we have the moral darkness. (Read Rom. 1 :20-32.) But the prophet saw the joy of deliverance. .Jerusalem hadl been left in peace, Hezekiah succeedeg his father, Ahaz, and entered upon a religious revival in the kingdom. The peolie who had walked In darkness had seeni a new light. The propl -t saw the dawning rays through the amist of this dark ness of inrance being removed. He also saw the comin~g of the Light of Men 700 years latter, andi the multi plicat ion of the miutionrs. the increase of their joy. II. Unto Us a Son Is Born (vv. 0-7). The greatest joy f'or Israel in Isaiah's time was ini this visioni of the Messitah, the promilsedl Savior. Isaiah is look ing ahead seven centuries. We are looking back nineteen. He was to be king over his people. Name and title is here given. (1) -"Wonderful" be cause of his nature, being both hu man and divine. The word made flesh and dwelt among us. (2) "Counsetor," , one who has the wilsdom to guide him self and others. No one guided by ltlm has ever failed of true success. (3) "The Mighty God." H~e was truly God so that we can trust him to the utter mcst. He can also save to the uitter most. (4) "lEverlasting FaIthier," ex pressing his divine loving kindness and self-idlentiflcation wvith the Father. (5) He is also "Prince of Peace," the one who rules so that peace and prosper ity abide in his kingdom, lHe brings peace between man and Godl, and be- ' tweer.nman and man. He is tihe peace of the soul as well as bringing peace to the soul. The completeness of this picture which Isaiah saw ia the one which St. John saw, of which we have been recently studying. These two verses are marvelous ones, not only because of the clear prediction of Jeans Cf Nazareth, made more thanm severn centuries before his first advent, but marvelous also for the fullness and richr.ess of the revelation they con tain concerning the person, character and work of Christ. Our Lord's earth life began at Beth lehenm, but lie was from all eternity. (John 8:50-58; John 1:1-2). As a man is not at peace with God he cannot be at peace with himself or his fellows; but as Jesus restores peace between man and God, he- also restores peace to the heart of the in dlividual (Phil. 4 :7). Sunday school officers and teachmers should realize the difference between the peace with God4, (RKon). 5:1) and the peace of God (IUhil, 4:7). - Let us see to It that In the fullest sense our scholars may have the Priace of Pene In their- lives.
