I've slacked at the store, I know, I've been so tired but I'll do better soon." "Give up both jobs tomorrow," Steven suggested suddenly. "Give them up and marry me.

Tbe bicycle had succeeded In doing what all their concerted efforts had been unable to accomplish. That shining toy had torn Mike away from his endless reading. ^ „ '•TONIGHT he was bubbling with •*• plans to spend tbe money he had earned running errands-tor tbe corner grocer. It was his first job and already he had over $3. Apparently he meant with this sum to buy out Tiffany's to deck the women of bis household. "That's grand," she said enthusiastically. "But suppose right now you wash your face and hands for dinner." As he dashed off, Molly, who was sitting on the window sill and languidly fanning herself shot a triumphant glance at Ellen. "Now admit It," she commanded gayly. "You were wrong about the bicycle." "I suppqse I was," Ellen conceded. "I've certainly never seen Mike look so well." "The best of it Is he's away from that street gang now," Molly continued happily. "He's well and busy and full of fun." "Hush, here he comes," Myra interrupted. "Don't you think, Ellen," Molly asked quickly, slipping In a last hasty question, "that you might be wrong about other things too?" Kllen continued to pull up the chairs. She did not answer. They gathered about the porcelain table that looked out on the fire escape and Ellen's geraniums. They talked languidly, laughed occasionally and passed back and forth the bread and butter sandwiches while outside the hot twilight slid Into hot, velvety night. "This isn't BO bad," said Myr» at last, yawning. "Rather nice In fact," Ellen agreed, sipping the last dregs of tbe iced tea. "Do you know, I think good luck has come to us at last," Myra continued, half jestingly. "Tbe insurance Is almost paid again. Ellen's about to give up tbat horrible job at Dreamland and she's bad a grand boost at Barclay's. Fair weather ahead." "Certainly we'd-.bad our share of bad luck." Molly sigbed wistfully, sending a little prayer out into tbe night. "Tbere can't be any more in store tor us." But tbere was.
