Neither spoke for a long time until Diana said, "A man from an. insurance company came to see me today." Phil was not surprised. "Steve told me about that." "He did?" "Yes. He said there was a great deal of uncertainty about that sort of trip. He wanted to be sure you'd be taken care of."' ' " "But- lars!" -a hundred thousand dol- "I happen to know the rates came plenty high. If I can advise you in any way—" "I didn't take it!" Phil swerved the car sharply. ".What?" ?' "I didn't take it. Phil—I don't suppose you can understand it, but I have -such a strange feeling. I look up expecting to see him in the doorway. I know he isn't dead—!" "It's the circumstances surrounding the case," he said, frowning. "Never really knowing. I think you'd be happier in the long run, Diana, if you'd just accept—the truth." "I can't." He drove more slowly. "You loved him very much!" "Yes. I wish I might have told him so. It would have made But him things so much easier now." how could she have told when he did not even kiss her goodby that morning at the airport? > "Then perhaps it will make it easier," Phil said slowly, "U I told you that he loVed you' with all the strength of his being. But ie thought there was something leeping you apart-—" Her voice came on a whisper. 'How—how do you know?" "He spoke to me about it that 'ast day. We were alone for a noment at Eyalyn's, you remem- jer, while you and she went upstairs together^ to get your wraps. : ie said, 'Phil—if anything should lappen to me, you'll look out for Diana, wort't-yoU? I've discovered ,hat I love her very much, but ! won't say anything until I return. It wouldn't be fair to her.'" "But Evalyn—it was Evalyn he oved—hlways!" Phil spoke with quiet conviction. "Loving Evalyn is like worshiping a dim, far-off statue. You're flesh and blood, Diana—a man could not live Jn the same house with you long and resist you!" * * * 2HE was too preoccupied to think Phil might be also speaking for himself. She stared straight at the road before her until it became blurred with her tears. Then she began to weep quietly, as if the sobs were coming from iier very soul. She cried for a long time and Phil was silent, busy with his driving and his own brooding thoughts. At last she laid her hand on his arm. She was smiling through her tears. "Thanks for telling me that, Phil," she said. "And now—I shall never stop waiting for him to come back!" < A little later Phil left her at the door, drove off wondering. Diana seemed so sure that Stephen was alive. And yet, the evidence of his death was so conclusive—conclusive enough to satisfy an insurance company! In the hallway Larkin told Diana that Adela was waiting to see her in the drawing room. Diana drew a deep breath. Well, it was inevitable, of course. She and Adela must have an understanding. But she had hoped it might be delayed a little longer. Adela was pacing nervously back and forth -• before the fire, while Aunt Christie occupied the big, white leather chair. Richard Thorpe's profile was clear-cut against the darkening window. So Aunt Christie knew and approved of Adela's affair with Richard. She was the type who' would Diana reflected scornfully. Ever since the night she hac visited Richard's hunting lodge in search of Adela, she had sensed n him a mounting intensity of dislike, born of the fact that he had revealed Diana's attraction tor him only to be coldly rebuffed. 3uch repulsion his ego could riot derate and so his desire to hurt Diana had played eagerly into Adela's hands. "You wanted to see me, Adela?" Three pairs of hostile eyes •aised to meet hers. Adela cam* 'orward, trembling a little. "Yes. We all know the arrangement my brothet made with you ibout becoming his wife. We enow the marriage Was a farce from beginning to end. And now ,ve Want to know when you are leaving this house!" Diana took a deep breath and steadied herself. "I'm not leaving," she said quite clearly. "Stephen asked me to carry on until his return—and that's exactly what I'm going to do!" * * * SHE awakened early one morning, just as dawn was poking fingers of light into her bedroom. Outside the mists of night had not entirely dissolved. She arose and went to kneel at the open window, looking out into the garden. Great waves of fog swept back as if by an unseen hand, and a faint pinkness in the east gave assurance of a bright, new day. Diana felt a great peace descend upon her, as if for a moment out of eternity all thought and time was arrested while she knelt there and drank in the promise of the dawn. And then Stephen's Voice, as clear as she had ever heard it, spoke quietly and tenderly. "Diana, • my beloved—we shall soon be together aggin—in just a little while—" Trembling, the teafa streaming down her face, lifted entirely out of herself, she rose and, as complete joy flooded her being, she found herself in the hallway, knocking frantically at Adela's door, calling: "Adela! Adela! Please come—" Adela opened the door to stare in amazement. "What's happened? You look as if you'd seen—" "Stephen spoke to me—there in my room! Oh, you must believe me. Please, believe I'm telling the truth! He's alive, Adela! Oh, be glad with me! I know it surely. He said, 'Diana, my beloved—in just a little while—"' She was surprised at Adela's gentleness. "It was a dream, Diana—nothing more. I'm sorry. Come, let me take you back to bed." (To Be Condnued) church Sunday, Dec. 7th with the Reverend W. R. Hamihon officiating.

That's such a pretty attitude tha we've all adopted it, and thereby made giving hard on the one who gives and often less than perfect foi the one who receives. Right now, we all should be dropping gentle hints—though not so gentle as to pass unmarked—about what we want for Christmas. Think what a simple matter it would be for a friend to buy us a gift, if he had heard "us admire, or even for something within his price ief on the Desert Gen. .Erwin Romr.iel commandj two German panzer divisions in 'Africa and several axis infantry contingents now on the defensive against sweeping British spearheads into Libya.

And think what a job it is for him o choose a present when we refuse o give out any such information. , Most of us know in advance just which friends and relatives will re 1 - niember us with gifts at Christmas Jme. And' it would be so easy to give each of'them' a hint or two as to Ihe things we really want. Few Hinting Days Left Till Christmas Of course, the information' is no good if it is far out of the price range of the "one who is giving. For the average woman to start admir- ng mink coats right now should be wasting her time and her husband's. But, she could' admire a certain' kind of house coat—if that is what she wants—next.time she and he are window shopping. That way she would solve for him the nagging question "What to get the little woman?" And she also 'would make sure she wouldn't get another floor lamp, like last year. And he could- do the same for her, letting her know that it's hunting equipment, not evening; accessories, that he would like to find under the Christmas tree. But, if we're going to turn over this new leaf, we'll have to get busy. Remember—there are only a limited number of hinting days until Christmas.' ' .'•.'.- .
