Not even a ; teeny, b'it of bravery." "Todky, • durlng ; algebra," said Ermintriide, "I kind of got to thinking abbut Peter, and I just almost decided' to give up the stage for a career." ft Ermintrude, with this thin wedge', liad Hoped to open a' discussion- of her own affairs, her hopes were rnavaillngi RosyWade, by this time, had been left behind, and the girl's were coming down a small hill covered- with the lush, heady greens' of' Oregon's' uncultivated shrubbery,. At the foot of the hill a service station sprouted, shining red and white In the sun. Mary- Frances clutched Ermintrude's arm. "There!" she said. "I'll stop in there and • fix up. They have a ladies 1 'rest room. It will be better than- going on 1 ' down to Palmer's; liko we'd planned." "I don't hardly think they'll let you," Ermlntrude objected. "Without a car or anything." "They'd just better try to stop me," threatened Mary-Frances. She was a female thing, .questing for love and beauty. Her'tiny nostrils dilated slightly. • * • 'T'HB attendant at the service sta* A ' tlon, pleasantly nanie'd Albert Jolly and 1 as British as "Zed," had noticed two girls; whom- he might have= described' as sWeetly coinelyi 'approach"' arid-' cross' ,hls grayeiefl- corner. He had noticed them, : and busy with his pumps-and his .oil cans, he bad promptly forgotten them. Ho was vaguely startled; 15- minutes later, when he saw the two young persons again In his graveled corner. Albert was at an age when all youth looked much and beautifully alike to him. Still, he had retained an Impression that the blue little lady was a bit more agreeable to the eye than was the stockier brown little lady. He looked again at the blue little lady, and his eyes opened wide, and his jaw went down a trifle, and murmuring "and distinctly troubled he returned to his pumps and oil cans. Mary-Frances had resolved that, for once In her life, she was going to look decent. The lipstick, wh'IBh' had done double duty f6f cheeks' and lips, had been purloined ffoift Cecily, as had the clown-white 1 flow- der, imdinimed by the tan arid the pink powders with which Cebity carefully blended It. There could be no doubt aa to the altered appearance of Mary-Frances, Ermintrtide, looking again at he* friend as they left the gravel 1 arid- gained^ the Sidewalk, declaredj "You're* a perfectly ravishing beauty, MrirjMFrances, darlingi Audi my, but you look old! Honest; no fooling, yoti look almost—Jadea;" Which Was" delivered as high age, rind' Which was so received.- The girls went on, past meade'S Development ahd Realty Company, down Tanner street, jm Ike Crombley's New and Secon* Hand Furniture Company, phst' ttia Sans Souci Apartments, past the post showing the sign, "Feriwlck avenue"; and If the old street, dap* pled with sunshine through Its spreading locust trees, attempted enticements or Invocations' they were neither seen nor heard; A rounded corner brought Mary- Frances and Ermlntrude to Mrs, Van'Slyclte's Delicatessen Shop, and automatically they stopped before Its windows: fascinating salads; goldetr With mayonnaise; bowls of creamy cottage cheese; cakes tower- Ing luscious layers of cocoanut arid chocolate; hams, cut to pink's owfl perfections; olives oily green, and pungent dill pickles, and pies, and little rolls—all only a glass window" away at four o'clock on a warm spring hungry afternoon. "I'm starved," stated Ermln- trude. "I'm just naturally starved. Let's hurry right back to our houso and get something to eat. We went to your house yesterday." Mary-Frances, too, was torn 1 by the teeth of hunger, but path and purpose lay clear before her, and, though slip turned from the Wlndow' wlth : a heart-heavy sigh, she took Ermintrude's arm and pulled it and said, "Oh, for'-;pity's sake! Come on, can't you?" . Ermintrude's opposition, which, possibly because' of the amazing success attending the venture for beauty, had' been constrained since' the girl's had left the service station, now'gushed forth, surcharged' with feeling. "Yes, but, Mary-Frances Fenwlck, I don't think you ought to. I think, you'd lots better give it all up-right now and go U for a college career." NN, at her desk^in the office of • the Redfern Plumbing arid Heat- : Ing Company, looked again- at th«' olpck on the wall. Twenty-five mia<' utes past, four, and Phil had' not telephoned to her nil day long. Usually, at least, when things went wrong In the evening, Phil telephoned to her early the next day—not to make love: Phil did not approve of • love-making over the telephone—but to reassure her, to let her know that he was not angry, to make an engagement for the evening. It was mean of him not to' telephone today. She would have called him gladly, but Phil thought It not quite nice for girls to telephone to men. 'It was mean of hint. Getting a number was so easy.
