He dropped the ribbon of bright green over' Ellen's bare arm so that it eurled almost ;to the floor. "That's for all evening," he told her. "No one else is to danco with you." , "I believe you've made a mistake," Ellen said, trying to temper the bubbling joyousness in her voice. "I think-they sold you a railroad ticket to California." "It does look like that." Tony, gliding past, summed up the Incident with approving, interested eyes. The 17-year-old plainly f considered the older girl to be her protege. •'I knew you'd be lucky, Ellen," she called over ber shoulder and was gone. "Now what did sbe mean?" Larry demanded. "Sbe meant I was lucky to find such a good-customer," Ellen ad vised him demurely. "No. It's the customer who's lucky." Their laughter rang out. J,,arry swept Ellen into bis arms and they were caught into tbe emotion-laden atmosphere of the room. Boya and girls were dancing closely In tbe semi-darkness, cheek to cheek, heart to heart, Light frocks blurred against tbe darker clothes of tbe man; white, bare arms clutched at broad shoulders, There was no sound except tbe muted whine of the orchestra and the swish of dancing feet, and, from outside, through tbe open windows, tbe subdued uproar of a oarer resting Broadway, tyjys ana girls, In the artificial darkness, were snatching feverishly at a little moment of tawdry romance, lest it pass them by; snatching at a moment of forgetfuloess of daily tasks while the saxophones woaned. Ellen and Larry bumped into a couple who bad stopped for a passionate epbrace. Ellen felt again that sb« would weep. She did not know quite why. But she knew that if Larry Smith attempted to ber In that furtive dark- •omjibjng shining and young §4)4 beautiful would be gone forever. £t the same time sbe knew tbj»t if he drew ber close, close to ;be could n,ot resist. don't seem to care much for till," fcit featured »t length, un And then abruptly, he asked, "Wbjt |rt you dfijag here?"

What a xnad fool she bad become". All of her values seemed changed. So much depended tonlgbt upon so little. She saw that Larry was watching her face aa< he waited for her to answer. She gestured, toward a sign o» the wall. They had to,dance through the crowd^ and to toe outskirts so that be could read. His own gray eyes lighted when he read that hostesses when dancing were United in conversation to "yes" and "no." "Po you like me a lot?" be inquired promptly, Ellen feared that he would discern the swift hammering of ber heart. She felt the color creeping into ber face. "Go on, toll me," he urged, f 'Yes or no?" V 8o be thought be would tease her! "Yes," Bllen responded, but very dubiously indeed. He looked disconcerted and then he added sheepishly, "Well that one ssems to have been on me. So you think I'm taking an unfair Advantage?" "Yes!" The second "yes" was emphatic and pointed. ' Their laughter rang out again. "Well, what do you siay." b« suggested, "if we leave the mute dancing to those as likes it mute? I want to talk." They were at a table and barely seated before he asked the second time, "What are you doing bere?" "Earning my living." • "Do you really mean that?" He was plainly startled. 8be bad on the tip of tar tongue a tart retort and she observed thftt be was studying ber dress. She bad {or- Steven Barclay .mtfij then- forgotten why she was at Dreamland, forgotten everything except that she was 20 years old and that life had become for her a thrilling and rose-hued miracle. "Certainly I mean it," she replied. There was no reason why she should explain to this young stranger how it happened that she was able to wear a Paris gown. It waa impossible for her to do so. She bad a passionate desire that he should know nothing ot her responsibilities, of the care and fretting trouble which had shadowed her youth. Sbe wanted only to laugh and to forget everything else. To him she must stand for gayety, for careless and irreapon. slble fun. l lie was not Steven Barclay, How did sbe know how quickly she might, by any hasty or misjudged attempt to precipitate him into ber life, turn that eager look into the expression ot boredom that sbo bad seen before. She did not amplify ber bare statement. He was checked. "Did y°u believe me," he asked after a pause, "when I told the manager my name was Smith?" "jf you say it's Smithf Ellen observed irrelevantly, "then it must be Smith." ,* • » H Ug tone was clear, ber eye» lucW and innocent, it was tb.« young 9WS/S turn to flush.

"Well, anyhow my.name Is Larry. ' Larry Harrowgate, age 27, occupation artist ot sorts, prospects nothing!" "I'm to take that aa a warning?" "If you want to take it that way." They both laughed ecstatically. "No, but seriously," he presently resumed in a voice which he tried hard to make brisk and' sensible, 'did you mean what you said—put on the floor? Do you'really like me?" .. . ' ;; "Seriously," sh« »nsw«r»d dutifully, although she ,»tjli -bubbled with excitement' itff^Iitlgf^r, "1, do."

Now we. can settle down and really get to know each other." • TJiey were Interrupted 'by a waiter demanding . their order. Larry confessed to a ravenous appetite and not even Ellen's warning that the 'food might be bad prevented him from selecting almost everything on the bill ot fare. When the waiter withdrew he began to rally her. "What's wrong with you?" he Inquired solicitously. "Are you a canary bird? I never saw a girl before who wouldn't eat on th« slightest provocation." "I didn't want to order anything," Ellen confessed in growing embarrassment, "because I get a percentage on what you pay." "You foolish youngater! 1 wouldn't think you were a profiteer even if you'd ordered a diamond necklace. I couldn't have paid for it but then—you'll have to eat half of mine." • • * •' i • T>UT when the food arrived, sand•*•* wlches and calies and a bowl of steaming chow main, decorated with slivers of chicken, neither wanted to .eat. They wanted to dance again and again, to dance forever or until they dropped from exhaustion. Like children on a holiday they skylarked about the door. Again and again they discovered with pleased and excited exclamations ;how well their steps fitted. Amazing, thrilling to change quickly from the langoroua grace of the tango to the rowdy breathless complications of the outmoded Charleston—amazing to dance with someone who moved almost as you moved. The whole day bad been the most exciting of Ellen's life. She almost hoped it would never end. But the ending, when it came, was sweetest of all. "You make a big difference to me," Larry summarized it with simple fervor. "Just finding you, Ellen, has made my summer for me." "I'm—I'm glad you found me." "We'll go places and s«e things, won't we—you and I? We'll have fun, won't we? What do you Bay, Ellen?" "Ob, grand," she murmured. Even in the midst of her pleasure sbe wondered why he did not say anything more definite. Sbe felt a little twinge of dismay at the thought be knew where to find ber, if be never returned she must re- wain silent. How did sbe know bow many girls be had bjugbAd with Just as he had Iaugbe4 with b»r? "What about tomorrow at tea?" be was asking eagerly. "You doo't work Saturday afternoons, do you?"

MOST SPEEDY REMEDIES KNOWN. A 20,000- Man-Size Job Men must eat. Trainloads of butter, egg3 and poultry move every week into New York and Chicago. Carloads move every week into hundreds of smaller cities. Shut off the supplies for a brief time and millions would go hungry. • Men must sell. Trainloads of produce move every week out of the farming centers. Stop buying for a little while and eggs would grow old, butterfat lose its value, poultry pass its prime.' Hundreds of thou- aands of producers would lose money. Regularity of supply can be assured only by widespread buying. Transportation costs must be kept low by shipping in carload lots. To obtain good' -prices from the men with the dinner tables, there rii'ust be efficient salesmen and accurate, hour-to-hour reports pn demand everywhere, Aman-sizejob? More than that. Swift&Company makes this a 20,000-man-size job. That many, and more, of its employes devote all or part of their time to buying, processing, selling and distributing poultry, dairy products and eggs, Over a hundred Swift produce plants pay cash for what the farmer produces. Leased wires 7,500 miles long keep experts informed where demand is greatest and supplies are shipped to these points. Branch houses and car routes serve 10,400 cities and towns. The same salesmen who sell meat take orders for butter and eggs. One delivery suffices where two would be needed if produce and meat were distributed sepa- ratelyf Handling them together makes workers more efficient, Therefore, cost of distribution, both of meat and of produce, are lowered. Swift & Company is a national marketing institution. It is also several hundred local institutions. Packing houses, branch houses, produce plants—more than 650 in all — employ local men whose pay checks help to keep their communities prosperous. A rounded line of foodstuff's enables these rrien to give a better and a less costly service to ell classes of producers. Charges are reafopable. Profits of Swift & Company from gH sources, over a period of years, have averaged less than one-half cent per pound of product handled. Swift & Company of Fi 764 1
