For she had made lip her mind that if the man, who had sent for her did in fact turn out to be be Loma she would not ran,-but.bluff•it through somehow. It would really be a relief if things came to a climax at once, S HE got into the front seat of a dusty, nondescript little car be* side the tail young man, and thought of nothing but keeping her seat and holding to her floppy sunhat while they tore at a breakneck speed out the coast road and along the shore. The Hilltop Inn was not imposing ... in fact, it was nothing more than a glorified quick-lunch stand, surrounded on. all sides by a broad screened verandah on which were bare wooden tables and chairs. At one of these, before she climbed out of the car, Mary caught sight of the stout, white-clad but slightly wilted figure of old Mr. Jupiter, impatiently mopping bis brow. What joyful relief that It was he! The young man tooled bis car into the side-yard and helped her alight, Even as be greeted her, Mr. Jupiter rapped on the screen and called out, "Don't go 'way there, son! I got another errand for you In a little while!" The young man nodded, got out and went over to the soda stand, and climbed indolently upon a stoo), prepared to wait. He was well out of hearing. "It's all-fired hot to bring you all the way out here, Mary," tbe old man. apologized, "but I got some things "n my mind that I've Just naturally got to talk over with you. Don't seem as if we get much chance lately." This was putting it mildly, Mary thought "Where are the others?" "I told 'em to let me out and so on." He mopped bis damp brow, 'I've bad about enough of this Florida climate for one day. But that wasn't it I wanted to get back to town and have a word with you. We Stopped this here feller going in the opposite direction,, and he said, he'd take me back to the hotel, so they vent on—Bruce and Sates, wjd.*-ber.

"Now, * here's another thing." he said, leaning his elbows on the'table and laying the indexflnger of his right and in the palm of his left. <r ?ou know," he began, "or— atber, you don't know, because hey don't anybody know but Just me and one or two others, that here's a Lorimdr car belongs o me." Mary's eyes widened at this reve- atlon. It was the very thing she wanted moat to know about, but she had choked on the question whenever opportunity arose to ask it. "I had Tom buy It for me. I kept t secret Bound to be talk if I bought any car not put out by the Jupiter Motor Company, and I bought it was Just as well not to et the Lorimer people be able to say I bad to buy one of their cars ;o get any place. "But the fact is," he hesitated, and Mary fairly twitched with Impatience, "tbe fact Is—now. you ceep this to yourself, Mary—but the Lorlmor car Is a darn good car and It's been cutting into our sales to the point where It's not funny any more. Now, I, know all about the Lorimor car. They haven't got so much as a washer on it that we haven't got, or can't put, ou a Ju Piter. But I'm damned it a lot of people don't prefer it to the Jupiter, Mow why? "I Hays to myself. I'm goln? to find out.

TTE held out a folded sheet ot •*"*• paper, his hand trembling until it was hard for her to seize It. Mary unfolded it, read in Eddie's familiar handwriting: "I. 0. U. 515,000. Edward Harkness, Junior." "Take It easy, now. Don't get upset," Jupiter warned her, as the mechanic alive, and be That's why I keep him, He. ain't so trust worthy in all way»— I've found that out. But I'd, rather have, him on my cars than some honest lupkhead And If he wasn't: lacking epme- wherea he'd be down at the plant getting J20.000 a year, instead of wearing my livery and sleeping over a garage, Breathless as she was with eager ness for him to get on to the point of the story, Mary could not belp recognizing that the faults of Tom were a real heartache to the ol< man, so highly did be esteem the man's mechanical genius. "Well. I says to Tom," Juplte went on, "this here's to be your car to fool with. Take it whenever you've got the time, and do tricks with it, Give it every test you can tbink of, just as If you was buying a, car for yourself, I want to know just what you think of that cai when you're done with it Take I apart, If you want to, though know what's inside, and so do yo.u with, it, sleep with it. get to know tnat Lorimor car as well ai you, know Jupiter car.

How did-?thls—get In the car, 1 wonder?" she asked, levelly— holding the sheet of paper which was like a message from Eddie himself. "Well—It was a second-hand car. Looks like it might be the car that The Fly used coming and going, and maybe later on the one thai ran your brother down," Jupiter offered. Mary's dazed eyes sought the paper again. "Tom swears there's been nobody In this back seat till this morning," went on Jupiter. "Tom's no hand for joyridlng, I'll say that for him." When they got back to town, driven by the obliging young man In whose pocket now reposed the first |50 bill he had ever seen, none of tbe motoring party had returned. Not until she entered the lobby did It enter Mary's mind that she had not telephoned Bowen! Hastily she called the number he had given her, but be was not there, No one knew whether ho bad been there or how long ago he had gone. Well, she bad been gone nearly three hours. No wonder be hao grown impatient. No. sooner bad she gained bei room, however, than tbe telephone began to trill madly. It was Bowen. He was almost incoherent with relief at finding her in.

W,, at West Texas State Teachers' College here. A bank failure is responsible for this unusual situation. Icela taught school for two years and saved the money to pay rent, tuition fees andf other college expenses for her brother and herself. Just as she was writing checks to defray these expenses, the bank in which she had her funds closed. Undaunted, she returned to her home in a rural section of Floyd county and returning with the washing machine. She explained her plight to the dean of women. And now she does laundry for many of the faculty members and one of the dormitories of the little school. Her three-room house stands across the street from the football stadium. The lights that flood the gridiron for night practice also furnish light for Miss Crouch to continue her work. The students, trooping through the gates after a game, see her wearily hanging the last of long, lines of clothes. • "I have" classes until late in the afternoon so I ,dp rftost of my work at night." she said. "The ironing Is really the hardest because I insist on maintaining a standard as high as any laundry. But people just won't pay as high prices to a home laundry as they will to steam laundries. I made $7 the first week I worked and it took most of the hours outside school." The income is just barely enough to allow the girl and her brother to meet their expenses but it is growing steadily and they hope to have, enough to Rent It! Find It! Buy It! Sell It!

The Brains Behind Harvard-Yale Maneuvers The next move is probably Yale's, for Harvard haa won the last two Harvard-Yale games, but Barry Wood, right, of the Crimson, appears to be trying to sneak a move in ahead of Albie Booth of the Blue forces. They are the rival directors of play In the big battle o« November 21 at Harvard stadium. Booth is not yet ou of the race for AlUAmerican honors, and if he can break loose on a couple of his zig-zagging touchdown runs, he may nose out Wood for a place in the mythical honor backfield. Harvard is favored to win the game and Wood is the favorite for All-America quarterback post. But Harvard-Yale games are never won until the last tackle is made. And All- America selections aren't official until the season is over. Make your own bets. enable them to participate in the simple social life at the school before the end of the term. Icela, who is past 30, decided to complete her education at West Texas Teachers after one of her younger sisters had . finished. college and begun teaching. She attended 1 the school here one year and then taught for two years to get'money to continue. It was the custom among Romans to shave off the beard at the age of 21, and present it as an offering to household gods. A beard was grown after that age only as a sign of mourning. Playing With Fire •FORT WORTH.—Zaki, the fire cater in the carnival, sported a luxurious growth of beard. But tha tbeard was his undoing here when he put on his act. He was in the midst of eating some juicy morsels of flame when he dropped one. It fell on his beard. Zaki screamed, the beard flamed, and the dauntless fire eater fled in search of the water barrel. He announced his intentions o£ wearing asbestos napkins the next time he plays with fire. A primitive tribe of snvages in Korea is said to marry by merely shaking 1 hands. Lucky For Jimmy MILWAUKEE. — Jimmy Anderson's • mother is keeping her eyes on Master 1 Jnmes now. Recently the child, not old enough to walk, crawled out of the house and on to the street car tracks. He was .peacefully meandering between the rails when a car swept around a curce and passed over him. The axles and motors, however, were high enough to miss him and he . suffered nothing more than fright and a few tears. It is reported that more than 79.000,- \ 000 trees were planted in the United States during 1930 for reforestation. Is Your Doctor a Poor Business It hat been said that physicians generally are poor business men. Meaning Jhat they are poor collectors. Is this :trlie? The average merchant, including your grocer and meat man semi you*a tiatement the first of each month. Many send their collectors; many are even on a strictly ca»h basis. You accept their policy as being all right. If the plan is "pay as you enter" you pay without a murmur of discontent. Why should your physician be considered differently? He shouldn't; yet he is fundamentally different. Every business is based on pay for an exchange of merchandise. Every business man is the mone and that the quicker it is secured the greater the service than can bb rndered and the greater the success of the businsss will be. « • Not so with the physician. By the very nature of his training, his first thought is to render service. And to render it at a time and under conditions when money would be out of mind. For years the young physician is trained at his own expense. Everything is paid out; nothing is paid to him. It is then to be expected that when he has qualified to serve humanity that some magical change should come over him? No. He still continues on his errands of mercy; bringing relief and aiding humanity, Money with him is a second but nevertheless an important consideration. So, if on the first of the month, you fail to receive a statement from your physician for calls made and service rendered during the past month, do not think he is a poor business man. He may or he may not be such. The point is that he came when you needed, gave you the full benefit of his knowledge, aided you or your loved ones and is entitled to his money. Don't neglect to pay your physician promtply, simply because he is a pOjQi' collector. He is your friend in need. Act accordingly. Pay Yew Fhy»ician Promptly. Your Failure to Get a Statement I§ No Excuse for Negligence,
