There could be no harm, he had urged, in getting better acquainted. , * * * A S Ann put on her coat in the washroom'at the rear of the office ' the day behind her was a long tired disappointment, and the iempty evening stretched ahead paralleled with a frightened won- 'dering as'to whether or iiot she might hear from Phil. And yet, when the telephone bell rang, jiist as. aha -was opening the front door to start for home, /and she was greeted; by ; Phil's voice, .pleasant and sure, she^was aware only of irritation and. :• a dismaying petulance. - .....••.-. .•""Ann, dear," he 'said, "it is spring.". . ' "She" answered stupidly, ."It H?" and thought 'that it also was after iflve o'clock, ..and that iC the bill collector had , not come in she wouldn't be in the office to receive this news. ' • Phil had a .plan. The car was in running order again; he thought he might stop in town and get two of those box lunches, and then:conre for Ann, and he and she would drive out someAVhere into the country, , and find some woods and a stream, and eat their suppers together out there all alone unCer the trees. "You know I can't, P'hll," Ann said. "This is my week, to get dinner and. -do the evening: work, and I have to go home and do it." •'"I thought," he explained, "that Cecily might be a good sport this once and let you .off. It is a grand day. I'm wild to -get out of the city and, into the woods." v ''Cecily is always a good sport," Ann returned. "But it -happens that she, Just called me and told me that she is going out somewhere into the .-country for dinner'^ with ' ..... _ ri _... He is giving he'r a'rnsh.'isn't he?" "I shouldn't call him 'wild. 1 exactly," said Ann. "Cissy has every right to go— it is her week." He said, "Surely. Of' course." "Last week," Ann suggested, "was my week." "But last week," Phil reminded her, "it rained all week." Ann said, "That wasn't my fault." Phil said nothing, and one of those taut silences that como occasionally into telephone conversations began and extended absurdly until Phil snapped it with a "Well, then" that was frightening with finality. "He can't," Ann thought wildly, "say goodby and hang up,, -when nothing else-^has been- sald.d can't say, 'I'll see you after dinner^' won't I?' Why can't I? I often:!, do. I don't know. .Today I can't..",But she did say it; and, "Well, that's the trouble," Phil began, as she had known intuitively, without either precedent or reason, that he would begin. NO safe, satisfactory, "Yes, of course." No happy, thrill- What New U. S. Tax will Cost ing, "Well, indeed you will." -No, "May I?" precious because of Its humility and eagerness. It had been years since Phil had produced a "May I?" entirely satisfactorily. Ho had a client to see at eight o'clock. He had thought that he and Ann might havo their picnic supper in the woods, and that ha would have time to take her homo before he went on to keep his engagement, "I see," said Ann. "What's the matter?" said Phil. "Nothing," said Ann. "I suppose you think I shouldn't keep iny engagement with - my client?" "No, I don't," Ann said, tho hint of anger almost hidden under the weariness. "When did I ever think you should break a professional engagement?" "Well, then," he 'said, and It was coming now and sue could liotstop" It, "gobtlby." If only lie wouldn't top it off with one of those silly, outworn cliches of his. "Meet you at the merry-go-round," said Phil. It was his thesis that humor and love could not be divorced. * • • pHILIP hung up the telephone re-*• ceiver, and pounded the thing down on his desk, and said, "Damn!" He hated to lie — he wa^j certain of that— and ho felt bitter and ugly toward Ann because she had forced him , to do so. SomC- wliei l e,"ho thought, there must be ^vomen in the world whom men could not "hiirt." Women'to whom a man could say honestly, "I'd like to have you go with me out into the country this evening; but, since you can't (or won't), I am going alone. I happen, just now, to prefer the woods to your company." It was, he further reflected, his fault, possibly, that Ann was incapable of receiving his candors. He had pampered her too often, catered too long to those tender fee>> ings of hers; had been too ready, always, with excuses, explanations', apologies. She was angry this evening because he had waited until late to telephone to her. Why ; couldn't she gently know, as she had used to know — or had she, ever?— that he had always excellent reason for everything, that ha was never unjust nor careless? Today he had been very busy, and then he had waited to find whether. or not the car would be available before he made plans. ••«w»^ (To Be Continued), ~>'* Woman Is Injured in Auto Accident at Mena MELLON RECOMMENDS the fyUowing new miscellaneous taxes: TOPACCO MlpPUCTS iUCCKF? frfaje of 16 2-3 per cent over present tfcjj, , q?hf *nt government tax on a pack of eiuwetes is 6 cents. .A n»» who smokes a pack a day now pay* the gov- *njment 121.90 a year.

More than 300 Indians, many of them ill, faced exposure to the bitter cold of the blizzard wfhich gripped northwestern New Mexico and northwest, ern Arizona when the coal supply at the Gnnado. Ariz., Presbyterian Navajo mission gave out. The upper picture shows a street in Gnllup, N. M., where relief parties were organized, only to be blocked by the heavy snow drifts in th mountains. The lower view shows Indians huddled about the little mission after they had escaped death in the blizzard only to find themselves almost isolated and without fuel at Ganado. They'are holding mission sheep, which they had to butcher for food when supplies ran low. , • Letters to Santa Claus Hope, Arkansas. Dear Santa Claus:—I am a little girl four years old.
