JvThis i* a somewhat startling statement, inasmuch as .jjinajority of readers have not sustained fires on their own Foperty. Nevertheless, they are paying for one—whether it £the conflagration that destroyed a.great factory, or the ttte blaze that burned Jim Jones' cottage.

Only when paddy said he'd rent the ponies for us you were doing lots better than 1 was In algebra, and I guess be thought we'd help each other and all, 1 guess Daddy thought we'd eacb work for the other, Ufce true friends should. I guess be never even dreamed that you'd go and Sunk." "It wasn't my fault I flunked, was tt? We can swim, anyway." "No, w« can't," said Ermintrude. • 4< W«li, Why can't we?" "Paddy and Mother were up there yesterday tending to final arrangements and all, and they watched Chem empty the pool, and they say there is a foot, anyway, of stagnant water that won't empty out, and they won't let ro« swim for fear of infection, and they are going to advise against it to every body, and Mother says sbe won't be reappnslble for toe girls tbat do, and the tournament is out ot tbe question." "Well," accused Mary-Prances, "1 must say! That's nice, isn't it? It we can't ride and can't swim, wbat can we do?" "Nothing. Everything is ruined. Just ruined. Unless, maybe, you didn't flunk in algebra after all." Their sighs Joined and sank tn tbe sunshine. "I'll tell you one tblng I won't do," said Ermintrude. "I won't sit around and read poetry all tbe time. I won't do it, Mary-Franres And I won't let on to the other girls, like you said, about you and either. Suppose 1 did, and of the girls—Barbara Flatten for Instance, it would be Just e* 4Pf)y like her—should go and tel hey mirther, and Mra, FJu.,- would tell Mother, and it would ii com» bajjk on me?" "grmfntrudft" said Mary-Franco? wisely patient, "Is that very sensible? It would come back on me, wouldn't it?. It wouldn't come back on you, would it?" "Well, I Won't do it, anywa,y," declared Ermintrude. "I just have one of those strong psychic bunches of mine that I'd better not. You know how I am when I have one of those—" Mary-Frances said, "All right, darling," hurriedly. The fire bouse was just around the corner. "I always trust your psychte hunches, and you know I do. I expect, maybe, we can coax your mother Into letting us swim." "Nobody," said Ermintrude, from the depths ot sad experience, "can coax either my mother or my daddy Into anything." "They'll mellow, I expect," prophesied Mary-Frances, "Grand and Rosalie say that age mellows everybody like everything. They," boasted Mary-Frances, "can be coaxed Into anything. Ann and Cissy aren't so good. They're like your mother and daddy—they've got to mellow. I'll wait right here or you, darling." Ermintrude took tbe letter, writ- en on Rosalie's orchid notepaper, ooked at it for an Instant, put It o her nose. But, "I think you've got too much perfume on it," was ler only voiced objection. Sbe went. Mary-Frances waited. I thought you wore never coming back. Did you flnd him?" "Course I found him. He was ight in his room, and be opened the door when I knocked." "What'd he say when be saw you?" 'He just said, 'Hello,' kind of funny," "What'd you say?" "I said, 'Here.'" "Did you give him tbe letter?" "Yes. That's what t did when 1 sftid, 'Here.'" ••Wbat'd be say then?" "Nothing. He just looked funny and put It tn bis pocket." "Did you tell him that you brought it 'cause there wasn't time to mail It?" "No, I forgot. He'll know, any way. won't be, when be reads the letter?" "What'd you say he said after you said, 'Here'?" "Nothing. He just looked funny and put U in his pocket." "Which pocket, Ermintrude?" "His outside coat pocket." "Did be start, or pale, or tremble or Anything?" "No. . He just looked funny." Conceded, then, that he looked funny. Perhaps be felt funny, for bis reply to Mary-Frances 1 letter yai an amusing, almost bumorpufl Sweetie. Y'rf riecev«d. 99 how about tomorrow Tues. afternoon at 4 at the chop suey Joint upstares over Palmer's and Co. I will be waiting there for my sweeties. Y'ra, E. P. S. If you can not make it give me a buzz or drop me a line by male saying when and. where date would be convenient. X X X X X " The crosses, as anyone knows, stood for kisses pledged. But Hung Chin See's Chop Suey Parlor (Chinese and American Cooking. 35c Merchants' Lunch. Dinner COc), Vt our-o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, was no place for candid, straight- orward things like kisses. It was, atber.-a place for wit and fancy, finesse and artifice and Intrigue. Great colorful fly-specked lanterns were booked up on tbe ceiling, and wind bells, though broken, would hare tinkled had there been a stir•Ing of air In tbe deep stillness ot he dim soiled room that smelled ot •Id, old chop sueys and dear dead ihow mains, with such sauce, too. Tbo tablecloths were spotted,' and he dishes were chipped, and all the ;lorious Orient would have glowed, more than likely, If tbe lights bad ieen turned on;'and a sloe-eyed boy n coat and apron, which had once been white, stole around through all this glamorous glftnour and ilopped tea and scantily fulfilled heir meager wants. • * • r*ARL would have only green tea, " and that not strong. Earl was off bis feed: stumeek trouble, he said, which got worse on him if he didn't watch it. Which, anyway, was almost sure to get worse on lira until he could get to Mendel Springs and stay overnight, at least, and drink of its mineral waters. So Vlary-Frances, who did not care tor :ea, ordered nothing but a glass of milk and • slice of custard pie, and she finished tbem up quickly, and after that she ate nothing except small soup crackers from the smudged bowl on tbe table. But these sbe ate with such an air, picking each one daintily from the dish and poising it near her UPS for a moment or two before sbe popped It In, that it seemed almost as if she were smoking cigareta and not eating anything at all. Conversation bad lapsed. Earl reopened U. "Excuse me, Frankie, he said, "but you got kind of a mustache ot milk on your mouth." Mary-Frances blushed and applied a paper napkin. "You're pretty," be said. "Cripes! You're awful pretty. But aren't you afraid of getting fat, drinking milk and eating such heavy food between meals?" "Fat!" protested Mary-Frances. He qualified, "Well, plump—any ways," m not I'm away undsr weight, and my sister Aon and everybody worries about my be- tUf so^-well, slender. My constant fight—just fight, fight all the time to keep from being right down skinny." "Sure, 1 know. Just the same, you can't always tell. You got a swell little shape, and If I was you I wouldn't take chances with it." Mary-Frances swallowed a cracker and pouted. "I'd look a lot better If I weighed five or 10 pounds more, Everybody says so." ,. wyotJ look good enough for me •*• right now," Earl redeemed himself. "There ain't a girl on big time today as good-looking as you are—and that's saying a mouthful, Perfect ideal awn-jew^nay type. Ilka I've been telling you all along. Now, listen, hon: the trouble with you IB that in a way you're your own worst enemy—see? You don't loolj Into tbe future—see? What's it going to get you, sticking around in this one-horse burg? You don't have, any fun—you don't have anything, sticking around here—" "I know I don't," said Mary- Frances. The algebra examination marks had been given out that morning. Ermintrude, with a B—, bad been neither agreeable, not lomfortlng concerning Mary-Fran* ces' F. Ann and Cecily would fuss about It. It would be just like them to Insist on summer tutoring and an examination in the fall. The ;lrls' camp, by this time, was promising llttlo of real worth. "Just a drab, dreary, misunderstood lite," finished Mary-Frances. "You said It, hon. Now I'm telling you. Look at It from a broader point of view—see? The world's waiting for us, Frankle. • Waiting with open arms—see? ' Give the world something it wants, and there ain't anything tbe world won't do for you. I'm not stringing you along. Honest I'm not, hon. We could number our public from coast to coast, arid with any kind of break, on over to the European countries and all. I'm not saying you'd be so hot by yourself—see! Or that you could start out alone, with no experience nor nobody to . protect and steer you rigbt and make good. "I'm not saying that—see? I'm telling you that wltb the act this guy in Denver would fix up for you and I we could knock 'em cold. Cold! We'd have to start In a small way, maybe. Not the swell drops nor all that we'd get later—but look at tbe future. I'm telling you, Frankie, there's no limit to where a couple can go, once tbey got popularity. Thousands of dollars In radio auditions. Vltapbone acts. Testimonials—clgarets. mattresses, pills—everything. Look at Lindbergh, and what be turned down. Look at Rudy—" "Ovations?" questioned Mary- Frances. "I'll tell tbe world/' (to Ue Continued) OrrYOFHOPE^ (Democratic Primary Feb.!"" For City Clark FRED WEBB For Alderman Ward One L.C.
