After the Relieves Headache Due To Constipation "Thedford's Black-Draught has been used In my family for years," writes Mrs. J. A. Hl&htower, of Carthage, Texas. "I take it for sick headache that comes from constipation. When I feel a headache coming on, I take a dose of Black- Draught. It acts and my head, gets easy. Before I knew of Black- Draught, I would suffer two or three days—but not any more since I have used Black-Draught."

NOW GO ON WITH THE STOR1 CHAPTER XXXVII OOOTS was curled in ono corner ot the big couch. In this room with its studio window, its marble mantel and grate In which a red firo glowed comfortably, there were expert touches. Frances had made tho linen slip covers with calla lilies on a terra cotta ground. The books that lined the shelves were many and various—poetry and fiction and biography. Frances was interested in child training and "mental health" and there was a full shelf of books on the latter subject. There were chrysanthemums Iti a decp-mouUted amber vase and the wet wind, stirring the curtains, mingled with the scent of the fire and the tangy, bitter odor of tire flowers. Boots, glancing up from her book and yawning, liked all of it.

Hoots liked sharing quarters with Francos, who was equable, amusing and honorable. She liked tho long Sundays in the empty apartment when Frances went to spend the day with her married sister in East Orange or with any one of a number of classmates. Frances also had with 3fi members present, opening' with the Lord's Prayer fololwcd \vi1hj the singing of America. The business meeting was in charge of Mrs. Vcr- non Gunn.

It was good to be alone, to savor all this. . . . The bell raus shrilly in the stillness anil Boots scrambled to tier Half F. Ellis.--son of Mr. and Mrs. M. A. Ellis of Clarendon.

The double wedding f wil be solemnized on Sunday, September 23. Little Miss Mary Kathcrine Belts and Buddy Denty dressed as' bride and groom presented the guests with small bags of rice from a white ] satin pillow bearing the interesting, news. The Denty home was beauti-1 fully decorated in late sumer f lowers j emphasizing a color note of yellow in the decorations and refreshments., Bridge was played from three tables, | with the high score favor going to Miss Sclma Lee Bartlctt. The hon-| ovccs were presented with lovely gifts.' The hostess was a.ssitcd iji caring fnr her guests by Mrs. Denty and Mrs. Terrell Cornelius. past 10! Too early for Frances to return from her theater, much loo early for Edward to call. His note had said he would be arriving at H. and that he would telephone her the instant the train got In just to see how she was. That was Kdward! She pressed the buzzer whk-li opened the downstairs door. U might be a telegram or a special do- livery letter from Frances' yuuug uian. It might be. ... Running steps on the single Might of stairs leading to their apartment A dark, smooth head appearing in tho stairwell as the girl, bent double in her lounging pajamas of amber silk, hung over to see who the late caller might be. S HE drew back, vary pale. "Denis!" It was ho. Denis In full evening kit, very handsome and debonair, a stick held In the crook of his ftrm. Denis with his opera hat crushed In his hand, his white muffler showing. Their eyes met. Ho was breathing bard. He had been running but he said easily, "Hello! • May 1 come In?" The Insolence of him, the unqualified Impudence of the man! She had not seen him for months— two, three months, at least. Not since he had Been her, unsmiling, to that Easthampton train and had gone back to his Kay. . . . But politeness triumphed over pride. She said, "Of course, come in." She was conscious of her tumbled curls, of the empty blue bowl and the ringed tumbler on the teakwood tray, conscious of the dent she had left In the deep tumbled pll- lows of the couch. For tho rest It was all mystery, all enchantment, to havo this slim, dark young man here In this autumn room, full of tho scent of dying chrysanthemums and crackling fire. She sat down in the barrel chair, her back braced against its back, and looked up at him. Very deliberately he laid his hat and stick down upon the priceless walnut of Frances' old kneeholo desk. Very deliberately he removed his topcoat. "Nice room!" he approved. Her blood rose. The Impudence of the man! Into your life he strode with' out a by-your-leavc! "I'm glad yon like it." "Cigaret?" He snapped open a wafer thin case of silver and she shook her head in refusal. AH this was preliminary to—exactly what! "I was up Ibis way," Denis said conversationally. "Ed told me the other day where you lived. I've been wanting to see you. ..." He'd been wanting to see her! Ail the air was full of music now, taint and far away, and there was a leaping In her pulses as though rivers of ice had been released. Oh, ho had said that; she hadn't dreamed it. "Well, I've been around," she offered vaguely in the silence. She had resumed her place on the couch now and was curled up, a small Tanagra-Iike figure in amber silk, her hair a ruffly cloud about her heart-shaped face. The room was a warm, enclosed place, holding a man and a girl with so much un spoken between them. Funny thing, life. Ono minute you were half asleep, droning over a book, not really caring what happened; the next instant you came alive suddenly at the sound of a voice; the touch of a hand. . . . * • • J"JKNIS, in the wing chair, scru ^ linizcd her coolly. She wasn't dreaming. It was Denis himself, critical as always, assured, faintly mocking. She had dreamed of him often and often in some such attitude, in this very room; she had not expected the dream ever to come true. "So you're goinj to marry again?" She sat up, straight as a ramrod, disdaining the jiUlows. "Who riHyS BO?" Me shrugged. "I leard U." "And if I am?" There was challenge in her gaze, ia the smile sbo lifted to him. II was, sha re- minded him wordlessly, none of hto affair. Denis got to his feet, extinguishing the cigaret in a brass tray »t bin elbow. "Oh, nothing," he said moodily. "I always had a sort of feeling I might have steered you Into safer waters the other time. Just a sort of grandfather complex, I guoit. That's all." "I can take care of myself," Bool* told him airily. He bent a baffled gaze upon her and she felt ashamed. He had taken care of ber when she was ill, helpless as a kitten. Why was it that she said these stupid, tactless things to him? She flushed. "Guess you can," brooded Denis, thrusting his hands deep IB his pockets. Silence fell upon the pleasant room, a silence broken only by the fall of a coal in the grate and the hoot of a late-going ship in the nearby river. "Sorry I was cross," the girl said quickly. "It's nice to see you. Sit down and tell me what you're been doing." She. hated herself for wasting these minutes. Presently ho would go away and she would bury herself In the pillows and weep her heart out because she had wasted the precious moments in such idiocies. "Toll me just this," the man pursued, sitting down beside her. "Are you going to marry Edward? He's one of the best, you know—but be sure of yourself this time. You're really such a baby. I feel sort of responsible for you. ..." • * * TTEU hand, slira, long-fingered, •*• tho nails rosy as little shells lay curled on the cushion beside him. Denis picked it up almost aloofly as he might have done to tlie hand of a child. The warm current of her being flowed Into the very center of that rosy palm. Something electric flashed between them. Boots never knew how It happened but suddenly she was In his arms, her bright head crushed against his black-coated shoulder. It was only for an instant. Stars zig-zaggcd In their courses and then righted themselves; a gilt-haired girl in amber silk swayed to hei feet, facing a tall, very pale young man in evening clothes. "I don't—don't know what's the matter with me." she said dizzily '•I think we must both be a littlf mad." . "My fault," he said unsteadily. The telephone rang stridently in the pause and she (lew to answer it Edward's houeat. hearty voice. "Hello, beautiful." "Hello!" ' "Been a good girl while I've been away?" "Oh, terribly good." Her eye:sought Denis. He was staring a> her moodily and he was frowning "What's the matter?" ICdwaro waa concerned. "You sound at though you'd been crying or some 1 thing. Didn't wake you up. did U I thought I'd drop by for a minutf if It isn't too late—" In panic she interrupted. "Oh but It Is—honestly. Not tonight!' When she put the Instrument back ou its cradle Denis had lib topcoat on his arm. "That was- Ed?" She nodded. "I fee) like a hound. I'm sorry.' Her eyes fell. "Don't be." His tone was infinitely i-eulJe 'You and I are set on different paths, child. You go with Ed'Ararn 1 with Kay." (To lie Continued) Tokio Health is good in this community at this writing. W. W.
