Mrs. Ralph Routon presented her music pupils in annual Christmas recital on Monday afternoon at her home on North Pino street. For the occasion the Routon home was beautifully decorated, with Christmas as the keynote, silver bells were hung from the front entrance, and in the reception hall was a most beautiful nativity scene, with the babe in the manger, and the worshipping wiscmen. The other decorations in the entrance were in gold and silver. The gleaming Christmas Iree. resplendent in all its finery of tinsel, bright ornaments and shining lights stood before the mantel in the music room, a smaller tree presented a lovely effect, with its ornaments entirely of gaily colored birds, which were given as favors. A frosted Christmas scone including the home and Eanta Clans driving his reindeers occupied the library table, other symbols in silver and gold added to the beauty of the decorations. In the dining room, old Santa was again in evi-i p , • , deuce, driving his sleigh through the ' snowy regions. The serving (able held ixmisettiiis and crimson candles, with the gold and silver ornaments placed at points of vantage all providing a lovely atmosphere for the following interesting program: Star Sapphires, Mary RONS McFaddin.

How will it nffcet her life ? CHAPTER V T ATER that day, when Linda ran downstairs to fetch Mrs Trent's afternoon mail, Barry stepped from the library door into her path. "Don't I rate even a few minutes once a day?" he demanded; and swinging her from her feet, he held her close to him for a moment. Then he set her gently down again. "You're so little, Titania—so little to do to a man what you're doing to me," he murmured. "I must go," Linda whispered on a quick breath. Barry, she was remembering, had a way with the lower classes. "This afternoon, then," Barry begged, "while Grandmother's taking her nap. In the library— nobody comes there." "No," said Linda. "No, Barry." "Why not?" "Because," Linda fius'nud, "I Can't be stealing around in your grandmother's house—hiding with you in corners like a—oh, Barry, you must see that I can't!"

The Junior Department of the First Methodist Sunday school entertained sit a most delightful Christmas party Monday evening in the junior department at the church. Christmas decorations were used throughout the rooms, and a lovely lighted tree bore presents for each pupil. Games were played and delicious refreshments were served. Rev. and Mrs. Fred R. Harrison, were guests and received an attractive gift from the department. last to deny. But I'll take mine little and sweet, with hands like Tilania's—" he lifted one of her hands to his cheek—"and feet that barely reach the floor when she sits in a man-size chair. And all the better if she turns pale at the sight of blood—especially if it's mine . . . Anything else?" "Well — " Linda hesitated. It was hard to think with his dark head so near the touch of her hand. "We haven't known each other so very long, have we?" "You'd be surprised to find out how much I know about you, but —" he sat up and grinned as if at a new and entirely amusing idea— "I see! You're sold on that bromide of the Duchess about 'a girl in every port', eh? Well, there's this to be said about that: after you've knocked about a bit, you've picked up some pretty definite ideas about women. The girl I ask to marry r..o stays asked." When Linda sat very still for a moment, not knowing what to say because she could not be sure how much he meant, Barry said, his eyes on the hand he still held in his, "Listen, Titania! Suppose you knew that I was going to — oh, let's put .it differently! Suppose you knew that I had to go atoay, almost at once, and might not come back for—well, for a long time . . . Got that?" "Yes," said Linda, startled by his unwonted gravity. "Would you marry me then, or would you still feel that we must wail until we knew each other better?" Linda said, "I would marry you if it were the last thing I did," and was amazed to hear her own voice speaking the words. "In spite of the Duchess and what she might say?" "In spite of the whole world." "And you will remember that I asked you this, and what you answered?" "I will remember," she said. "That's being a fine brave Trent woman," Barry said, and laughed exultantly. At the sound of impatient movements above, Linda broke away and ran guiltily up the stairs. A LITTLE later that ^te •"• Linda thought she had the answer to the question she had asked herself earlier in the day. Old Miranda, answering the telephone at her elbow in the drawing room called to Linda as she passed in the hall outside, "Oh, Miss Benton, please tell my grandson that Mrs. Blanchard wishes to speak to him Oh, and, Miss Benton, the Christmas wreathes have been delivered. Won't you see that they are properly placed?" Linda, hanging Christmas wreathes in the front parlor, tried not to listen to Barry's brief telephone conversation in the hall. But she could not help hearing him say laughingly just before he hung up, "Why, yes, Rita. I might b,c able to manage that—for old times' sake—if you'll promise not to invite the whole county." Old Miranda evidently heard, too; for when her grandson came into the room, she studied his blandly innocent face with shrewd speculation before she said, "Now since when, Barrymore Trent, have you taken the veil and forsworn society?" Linda hurried upstairs. She did not want to talk to Barry just She did not have a later op- portunity, for a few minutes afterward he dashed out of the house and drove away. He did not return for dinner, nor for the evening in the drawing room. Linda did hot ask any. questions about him; and old Miranda did not volunteer any information. Linda hated herself for the thought, but It would come, turning her alternately cold and hot with shame and misery: had Barry gone to Rita Blanchard — almost directly from those moments with her on the stairway? Had all that been really just some of his teasing nonsense? After all, just what had he said that afternoon? Not "Will you marry me?" but "would you marry me—if —?" . . . Did old Miranda guess, too, that he had gone to Mrs. Blanchard? For old Miranda was strangely silent that evening. * * * 'THEY did not play their usual game. Once in the early evening Mrs. Trent glanced at the clock, which it seemed to Linda she had been furtively watching ever since dinner, and asked Linda to turn on the radio. She listened impassively to a brief news broadcast, and with a silent movement of nor head, ordered it 00 again. : 'It pp^ms stranee that there isn't any trace of that plane Captain Trent was so worried about, doesn't it?" Linda roused from her own unhappy thoughts to say. "He said Lieutenant Rust is the best pilot he knows." "Ah?" said old Miranda absent. Well, sooner best of them, there seems to come one last time. No wonder they're a heedless lot Shall we go on with our reading, my dear Miss Benton?" So Linda read on and on. But this evening Miranda Trent did not knit, nor did she drowse—nor did she seem to listen. She sat very straight as usual, her eyes on some dim, dark distance, as if they would penetrate space, and find out something beyond the ken of ordinary vision. It was almost midnight when Barry came in. At sight of his tense, tired face, old Miranda got slowly to- her feet, her hands trembling a little on the head of her cane. "Well?" she asked simply. "Well?" and stood waiting. Then, when he only nodded, she said, "I see," and sat down a little neavily on the chair behind her, her eyes never leaving her grandson's face. (To Be Continued) ly.

But they won't fascinate children—at least not for long. Large blocks, tool chests or hand- manipulated derricks would make much better Christmas gifts, according to Miss Elizabeth Irwin, who has very definite ideas on suitable (oys for children. Miss Irwin is principal of the Little Red School House, a progressive school in downtown New York. Parents usually please themselves when they're shopping for toys, she says. They don't consider the child's taste or age, or durability of the objects. So she's set up some rules for the toy-shoppers. 1. Choose toys which stimulate the child's imagination, rather than me« chanical toys. Trains that run by hand are belter than electric trains. Blocks fall into the same category, but this second rule-also applies to them. 2. Choose toys which help children exercise their large muscles. Large blocks, trapezes, boards to fit over saw horses and the like offer a child an excellent chance for exer.cise. Athletic equipment, roller skates, sleds and bicycles make good gifts. 3. Select toys that don't break easily. Tools should be well .made, Jest hammer heads fly off and do damage. Cheap miniature automobiles are likely to lose .their wheels after a few trips around the carpel. 4. Buy games of skill rather than chance. That doesn't mean total annihilation of the "chance" type of games. Quite suitable for an occasional rainy afternoon. But games involving counting and building are far more instructive, she says. Soldiers and guns don't fall into an> of these classes, but Miss Irwin put! her foot down on them because of theii militaristic import. She flatly says ni educator would favor them.

At no time was either team more than four points in the lend. It was a hard-fought battle all the way and was probably the greatesl defensive battle ever witnessed in the Emmet High School gymnasium. Three minutes before the final whistle, the Columbus team was lending by one point. Nona Crank, Emmet forward, came through with a field goal in the last minute of play to give Emmet the victory, 21 to 20. First Columbus Defeat Because of bitter rivalry between (he two teams, players on both sides appeared to be over-anxious. At the start of the game Clara Crahb, Emmet forward, who scored 13 of her team's 21 points, put the Emmet cagers in the lead. The first quarter ended with Emmet leading •! to 3. The Columbus, learn forged ahead in the second period and was lending nt the half, !) to 8. The last two periods saw the lead change frequently. The battle was somewhat rough, however, no player fouled out. There was no substitutions at any time. It WHS the fourth time in the past two years that Ihe two teams have met. Emmel taking all four games. It was (he first defeat of the season for Columbus, having defeated several Hempstead, Howard and Little River county teams by lopsided scores. Two bus loads of Columbus fans accompanied the Columbus team lo Emmet. The nexl meeling of the two teams will probably be about the middle of January. Columbus Boys Win The Columbus senior boys, paced by the Couch brothers at forwards, had an easy time in downing Ihe Emmet senior hoys, 38 lo 27. The game was fast, throughout. '••In n third game, the Emmet junior boys won over Columbus, 16 lo 13. Guernsey High School will play here Wednesday night.
