The conversation had been in progress for some time, when the cat opened her eyes, yawned, stretched herself, and jumped to the floor. Then she said, "Meow!" and went over to Jack. "Hello Ginger I" Jack answered, pulling her ear. "Now Jack, just see how Ginger likes you. Won't you be friends with her?" Arlene pleaded. "Arlene, you know how I detest cats. When we marry I hope you will give up this cat hobby," Jack answered, somewhat petulantly. "Give up Ginger I" she cried, gathering the yellow treasure within her arms. "I'll never do that. Poor darling Gingerl" and Arlene hugged the cat close to her. "Well, you might do this for me, Arlene," Jack came back at her. "If you don't like Ginger, I won't marry you.

"But darling, be reasonable,'' the young man begged, holding out his hand for the ring, and coming close to the haughty girl. Arlene, relieved of the ring, turned and followed Ginger.

When he looked at his watch, Jack found that it was 10:40, and he was blocks from home. He quickened his pace, turned the corner, and directed his steps towards home. After supper his housekeeper, Mrs. Barth, had come to him saying, "My sister is quite sick, and I would like to spend the night with her, if it will be all right with you." "Yes indeed, it will be O.K. with me. Go to your sister, and do not worry about getting back for breakfast. I'll take my meal at the cafe." "Thank you. I'll go at once." Jack entered the deserted house, and making his way to his study, he turned on the light. Flinging himself into the armchair, he exclaimed, "That devilish yellow cat has spoiled everything!" From his pocket he drew a ring the dainty little circle of gold with the tiny glittering diamond which he had given Arlene three months beforea pledge of their love.

Ginger jumped triumphantly to the floor, and scampered to the rear of the house. The cat, wandering around the familiar neighborhood late that night, found Jack's window open, and jumped up to investigate. Her soft velvet footsteps did not disturb the scene then being enacted in Jack's sleeping room. The cat instinctively sensed danger to her friend Jack when she saw the dark form bending over the bed, and heard the gruff voice speaking. Then Ginger went into action. Jack jumped from the bed, slammed the window shut, lowered the shade, and turned on the light Then he stooped to pick up the flashlight "Darn good Christmas present you gave me, old Robber Santa Claus!" he said, as he turned it off, and laid it on the dresser.

"Is that you, Arlene?" asked Mrs. Wilson. "Yes, Aunt Alice. Please may I come in and talk to you?" Arlene responded, in a tearful voice. Aunt Alice in her understanding way, knew that something had gone wrong. She was all womanly sympathy and attention. "Sit down, dear," Mrs. Wilson said, placing a chair for Arlene close to her own. "Oh, Aunt Alice!" Arlene exclaimed, dropping into the chair and bursting into tears.
