You will remember reading these excei'iJl.s frflrti nen's stories of not so Ifanfe afeo regarding tlic general's apparently futile battle for life: "The life of. the 77-year-old wartime comiiiamlcT of the American Expeditibiiary Forces was believed di'awiiig to a close." "As thb spark of life in the stout heart ebbed away . . .'' "Gen. John J. Perslihig sank steadily lii ward death totiiglit . . ," "Members of the family who came t'eai'Fillly from tlie Ijcclsklc indicated that the em! was riear." "DK Roland Davisoh said, 'With the very rapid progress of the ailment against him, I doubt if lie can last very long.'" - ' All of wliieh proves once more thai ordinary rules of life don't hold for extraordinary men. During Ion;; ncr- iodfe oT his illiiess', the general WHS in ; a'cOrfui: He cbnld not speak. Jfe cbitlit' not eat'. He could not take drink. Some of liis orgah's had ceased to function. But one organ kept on the job .just as ifc had iiv inaiiy tough spots (Hiving the general's 77 years. That was his ghmd old fighting heart. That heart ife' beating with rje\v strength tliexe days and people everywhere rejoice in its victory. Perhaps the general will never again lead air active life. Perhaps ho will. The doctors have said that lie must Hve quietly. But who would be sur- p'Hsed to' see the old battler fool the doctors- again, and return to the activity that eh'aroderizcil his career always? The general is very much among the living and reports of his death were not only, "greatly exaggerated" but also extremely pre.matnrc. ^ The whole world joins in shouting: "A good light, (ion.

CHAPTER I WHEN Derek's riblc eamc thai morning, Constance stood for a moment, holding il' unopened in caressing Btigcrs, heir eyes oii the bleak', frozen- desolation of tlic little park across the sl'reet'. Slib had'-alWays'loved' tlie lUijc liark. Havirig it there, framed b'y her front' windows, leiit ari illusion" of spaciousness to her cozy eKintz- huiiij .apartment. Only last night she and Derek had calcil' supper at tlic table by the windows. There lias been a golden' souffle asparagus; a' salad, hol'biscullwlth lioncy, sonie.of the cheese Derek liked so liiucii, and a very special hot'tle of wine. Aiid there had been yellow roses'on the lalile aiid yellow candles in the silver candlesticks her fellow workers at llie Art Miisoiim liail soul her for a wcdciihg present Tlie candlestick's liiid comb while shcf- was setting the table; arid Derek had; iiisi'stccv on using them al once, "After all," lie had said, "why wait two whole days? . . . We'll be married tiie day after to- nioi'row, anyhow." Before supper Constance had shown him some of the new clothes she had lioughl — the smoke-blue sqtin dinner dress jusl tlie shade of her eyes; the velvet that wasn't brown or rust or burnl orange, but liad a touch of all three—"I must paint- you' in that," Dei-ck had said. Then there were the white knitted suit with the variegated scarf; the bouffant gray coat with the swirl of fur about tlie lieni, and the saucy red hat wilh a bag to'mafdi. . . . And, of course, the gay posy-garden smocks — "To wear when I'm cleaning your brushes for you, darling." She had not told him how much money liits gorgcousnoss had run into—all her savings except the ten-dollar gold coin she had tucked away in the purse she was io carry. Tlio pi-bspect of life vrilh Derek had demanded a gesture of reckless lavish'ri'ess. And Derek liked her to look smart. 31e was meticulous aUout his own appearance. "It helps with the right kind of people, darling," he explained; "And it's people wlio buy pictures." CdnMance'found herself vaguely bewildered % tins philosophy. Silo had supposed that people bought picture's because they liked -them. , . , Biit; then, her whole association; with Derek liad. been a bewildering, breathtaking experience. Since they had' been engaged, slie had awakened every morning- willi an excited feeling that she was.the heroine of some strange and' beautiful lale of enchantment. t « « gHE had first seen Derek Man- thon over a year ;igo at the opening night of the International Exhibit—he had won Honorable Mention that year—and slie had thought that of all-, the artists present, he was : the only one who really looked tlie : role—tall, dark, and handsome iii his formal black. II was the next morning thai- slid had looked up to see him standing by the desk in-thc American gallery marked "Information" where she .presided. He began without taking liis eyes from a list he held in his liand, "I wonder if you'• can—" Then he looked at her, and the pupils of his cyes'widencd in their singularly clear, transparent' irises in the way she came to know so well. '. "Merciful Heaven's!" he exploded soflly. "Now why, I wonder, hasri'l some one told you not lo disfigure yourself with that p'ar- licularly poisonous shade of green?" The look he bent lipon llie bit of green silk at the throat of her black frock held such active dislike that Constance barely man- When Dcrclt's note cams tlidt mormiig, Constance shod: for. a,. moment, IioUhns il in caressmg fingers.

After an outraged heart-beat, however, sho said in a voice which slie managed to keep level and quietly amused: "Perhaps because no one wlio knows me well enough would he guilty of such an impertinence." "My dear girl," he said shortly, "don't talk nonsense. It's no impertinence to hate seeing beauty outraged!" . He moved abruptly away; liut Halt way to the door he turned to call softly over his .shoulder with one of his SL-dden flashing smiles, "AiicJ I'm not talking about the scarf, cither." Constance spent her idle moments that morning devising silky, icy, devastating ; phrases; '.with which to slay him if he dared,t,o come back. But when she looked up from her work that afternoon to find him smiling down at her, she srhilei hack in' spite of herself. His hands were hidden behind him. "Which one will you take?" lie challenged, her. Constance said—again in spite of herself—"The right." "Right it is!" lie cried, and held before her a shimmering scarf of a- deep vibrant blue. "Trade?" When he saw her startled face, he cried swiftly, his eyes holding hers with boyish pleading, "Please! It isn't every day you can make a canvas perfect with one touch of thc brush." \ "I'll wear it," Consiance said wickedly, "if you'll wear the green one." ; With a shrug lie removed his tie, 'and -when she handed hiin thc 'green scarf, he put it abotil.his neck and knolled it into a rakish .bow. AS she fastened Ihc blue scarf at her throat, lib watched her wilh dreamy satisfaction., "I shall paint you," lie declared, "in exactly that shade of blue." * * * STD he did paint her so—poised against a shadowy background like a.vibrant blue flame, with blue shadows in the raven of her hair. He called tlie portrait simply Lady in Blue. It was the' picture thai had won him first place at the During the months since tlrat first meeting Consiance had found that Derek was not always, a gay, irresponsible boy, any more than he was always arrogant and cocksure. She learned that he had moods of deepest depression, when he doubted himself and disparaged every stroke of his brush. ... At such times he clung to her for reassurance. At such times slie loved him 'more- than she could have.believed'il possible to love. . .•. ( Sho-came to know, too, that money meant a great deal to Derek. Slie began to realize how much when Ernest Thorvald approached him tentatively about the portrait of his daughter. Ernest Thorvald AVSS the owner of. a California-r'a'nch'As big; Derek ' told her, as sonic European kingdoms, on which' he lived like feudal baron. The pupils of Derek's eyes" had been very wide and black as he told Constance about his' meeting with "Baror. Grapefruit" as he called 1 him. "If I- can land lliis commission, Coiinie," he said; "it Will give me so much'publicity that I'll be able to sell'ariythihg I paint." Then his face darkened. "If only the girl hasn't a sqUirit or a harelip." A's the matter hung fire, Derek had grown restless aiid irritable. Then last evening; just two days before their approaching wedding, he had rushed in excited as a schoolboy, with (he news that Mr. Thorvald was coming today to the studio to look at some more of' his work. Constance must not 1 mind if she did'not hear from him unlil late in Ihc evening. Ycl this y/as only morning, and here was a note from Derek. Con- slancc opened Ihe envelop, a tender little smile on her lips. ( Wlien she had read it through, siic .glanced- unbelievingly at tlie signature and read il through carefully, painfully again. Then '. she sloofl for a long time motion-, less, staring dry-eyed across lliu ; bleak little park outside—no more ' bleak in the Hun sunshine than (lie frozen smile that slill lingered' palely oii her'lip's. .(To Be Continued) 4-H Clirb- Ke\vs Notes corn varieties was given the boys by D. v.
