No one ot them bad !*h0wn tbe slightest interest in what ;h» jplght have been thinking di '|n» thow king years of exile. No one of them except his youngest »ljte*« Myra, for whom bis own eUt ,est daughter was named, had shown Jo the years following his o>atb W? recognition ot the fact that hfl 'had, toft a family.

But Molly Rosslter, dazed with grief, had seen that money slip from her Irresponsible bands within two years. Ellen could remember only as of something dreamed those' 'days when money was a dally problem, a dally topic of conversation. 8he had gone to work at Barclay's, department store when she was 14, She was still there. As she walked to the kitchen she wondered a little hopelessly if she would always be there. When she entered the small, heated room where the blue-checked linoleum had long since retreated Into the corners, her mother turned from the stove. Molly's pretty, fading face was flushed 984 set in lines of determination, $Ui »Jgbe4 wain- She was afraid tlhat her mother bad hit upon another disastrous scheme which would make them all rich, Myra. was seated at a chlppped pordelaln table, her chin resting upon her elbows, tbe morning newspaper spread out before her. Her tead, with Its smooth braJdi; «f hair, lighter and less warmly «£ ored ttim Ellen's, was bent"ow the aoclety columns. But her mouth was let pd mutinous and it KM plajA «M» 4M not really «M toe ?rlBte4 words. Her eyes were IttU ' ajftf tears. ;~ §94 I OIT» about 49^1 ed-^-" Molly Rosslter began firmly. 'Myra, looked up Quickly at that "We- haven't decided anything, mother," she interrupted in -her long-suffering voice. "Youionly «ug- gested—" Both of them looked toward,Ellen. Ellen crossed to the stove, relieved her mother of the eggs and began to beat with furious energV, so that the yellow foam leaped up the blue sides of "the 'bowl.'" Molly had been ready to pour them into the skillet , . v Ellen wa» (he natural .cook/ ot the houaehpld. , Molly'a cooking was always overdone'or underdone- and Invariably too highly seasoned.

She walked to the win dow to talce parsley, chopped toe night before, from a. box-like contrivance suspended outside an serving as a refrigerator. • l! "Now what Is It?" she asked tne combatants, as she sprayed In the crisp.green sprigs of parsley and poured the golden fluff into the hot skillet. * Molly and Myra Rosslter spoke simultaneously. "';•],. 'Mother .spent half the reni money yesterday buying things for Mike that he doesn't need," MyVji said. "And now she had an idea for you. You're to make up the money working evenlngs t " 'The things were on .sale," Molly explained eagerly, "Two pair ot panta for what I usually have •• to pay for just.one. I saved so much oa them that I thought,I could splurge a little. So I bought him some books he's, been wanting for ever so long and a new cap and some umlerwear." She added de- renslvely, "You wouldn't want Mike to go shabby, would you?" Ellen tested the omelet and lowered the (lame beneath it. She :urned off two flames which had been burning needlessly before she spoke. "No, I wouldn't," she said pa- .lenHy. "But how are we going to >ay the rent? -Tomorrow Is Saturday, but we already owe the trocer nearly all my salary. And Myra's Isn't due for 10 days yet," Sbe did not suggest that the suit which Mike had not really needed would deprive her of a, business dress which she did need. "That's Just it," Molly crowed, seizing the chance. "I have a marvelous Idea for you. There's an add in the morning paper from a dance place named Dreamland. It's a pretty name, Isn't it? They want girls for dancing Instructors. Look —here It is. I marked it for yotl." Ellen looked. Among tbe classified advertisements, ringed in pencil, was a call for dancing instructors. But she knew Dreamland, She bad passed it often on her way to work. And, although she bad never been Inside, she knew that "dancing Instructor' was a polite name for a girl b|r*4 to dance with unattached men at a small payment for each danee— a taxi dancer. They did, in tact, call those glrbj taxi dancers.

It was an 'old difficulty, Molly'* partiality for.heriqn.

"It's only —Tom Shannenberger can't even support himself. He has nothing now and never will have anything. He's Just one of those men." "I know that.. Still, if I loved him I don't believe I'd let It make any difference," Ellen said seriously, * * * A LITTLE pucker marked her • f * low, broad forehead. Her eyes were sweet and thoughtful. "I know money Is Important," she conceded. "Awfully important in lots of ways. But wh«u you think of love"—she flushed youthfully— "why all at once it's just nothing. 1 "Ellen," Myra spoke with des perate 'earnestness, "money Is so important in love that without it —some money, I mean, not a lot— love itself is nothing." "I dou't for a minute believe H!" "Look at me and you'll believe it. Lack of money has robbed me of lino years of my life. If there bad >een any >vay under heaven for lert and me to marry when we wanted to, by now I'd have had a home—children—all the things a woman wants. Instead—" She broke off, appalled at what he had been about to put into words. Not even to Ellen could she idmit that of late Bert bad seemed ddly restless and changed, bored t talk of that far-away marriage, Sbe laughed uervously, apologetl- ally. * i Ellen, uncomfortable but still Vaguely holding her own opinion, hastened to change the subject. "That.dress looks awfully well 6n you," she said, looking approvingly at her sister. "Better, I'm sure, than it ever looked on whichever cousin wore it." Myra glanced down at her light- blue voile, beautifully cut, freshly laundered and indeed becoming to her pale blondness.' "I wouldn't bav« .bought it," she _JIdr" "I" don't'like short sleeves. Bnt It has certainly been handy." "That's the trouble with things •given to. you," Ellen agreed. • Sbe ftdded loyally, "Still It's nlci bt Aunt , Myra to keep on jAgolfig things. Most of them aro scarwiv worn." . • She sighed a little nt the ,„ of joyous youth presented by own words, a vision ot gay and pretty girls who could discard tn«r frocks because they were tlrtd of them. There were certainly polhhj to having money, "It is nlco of her," Myra admitted in a low voice. "Even," shs added with a laugh not no amused as she meant it to be, "If she never sends black and you have to wear black at the store." , Myra hesitated and went on *Jth sidewlse glance at Ellen, "i fl a think.she might come to see ug some time.

Where are you going to meet v man good enough for you?" "At Dreamland, maybe, 11 Ellen flippantly tried to stop her sister, But Myra ignored the interruption. "I believe we'll always be spending every nickel before It's earned. It'll be like this forever. Mother will get older and more irresponsible. Bert and I will go on and on. Mike will grow up and get the same sort of job we have. It's Just no use trying." "Oh, Myra, Myra!" Ellen protest ed staunchly. "Where's your sense tf proportion?
