BUN I Synopsis , When the wealthy foster parents of Marjorie Wetherill both die she finds a letter telling that she has a twin sister, that she was adopted when her own parents couldn't afford to support both of them and that her real name is Dorothy Gay. Alone in the world, but with a fortune of her own, she considers looking up her own family whom she has never seen. A neighbor, Evan Brower, tries to argue her out of it and tells her ie loves her and asks her to marry him. She promises to think it over but decides first to see her family. She goes to their address, finds that they are destitute arid gradually persuades them to accept- things they need. When the doctor calls to see her mother she Dotices that he seems particularly interested in her sister. Marjorie goes to church in Brentwood, where her family used to live, and becomes very much interested in the young minister there. She then sees the nice home there that her family had owned and determines to buy it back for them. She consults a lawyer and makes plans to purchase it in order to give it to her father as a Christmas present. Twenty-seventh Installment "Oh, my dear!" said Marjorie twinkling. "I had the best time of my life seeing you all open your things." That evening after the children were put to bed they all gathered in the little parlor again, with the soft lights of the Christmas tree glowing, and talked. — "Marjorie," said her father, "your mother and I have been talking things over and we feel that there is grave danger, in our love for you, and our longing to have you always with us, that we shall be unfair to you. Since seeing the young man who called upon you last evening we realize more than ever that there are others whom you have known far longer than you have, known us, who perhaps have a prior cliam upon you." "Father, I don't mind," said Marjorie. "There isn't a BOUI among my old friends that I would, actually break my heart about if I didn't see them any more ever." There was a choking in her voice and her father reached out his hand as she sat on a low footstool by her mother's side and laid it on her head tenderly. ""We want you to be truly happy, and to^have no regrets if you should decide to come and live with us. What we want is for you to go back to Chicago for a time and. think the whole "matter over. Will you do that?" • ' Marjorie was still a long' time and then she looked up sadly: "Yes, I'll do it if you will do the same thing. If you will honestly talk it all over with th"e other children, and decide whether you want me or not." Her father looked at her mother, and they smiled tenderly over her bowed head. " • "All right!" said her father, "we'll agree if you will." Marjorie's face brightened. "Well, then I'd better get it over as quickly as possible. I've got to go back of course and see to things. I came away without dosing up or packing, or anything. But I did want to get the Brentwood house cleaned and you moved into it. I would hate to miss that." The father's face softened and then grew reserved. "Well, that's another thing, again, dear. We don't want to dp anything about that, Mother and L until this other matter is settled." The next morning after the breakfast work was done Marjorie wrote to the servants. She would be at home two days after New Year's. Then she had a talk with -, | Betty. . • "You and I should go shopping," she said. "I want to watch you buy some pretty things for „ yourself, and there are things the children ought to have." Betty, nothing loath, consented. So they went shopping. They had a lovely time and bought a lot of fascinating things. Betty was Christmas all over again. She looked very pretty as she waited for Marjorie who had gone to another part of the store. Just then a long, lank, sallow youth with a dare-devil in his eye, and a loose handsome month, brought up standing before .Betty and gave her a long admiring stare. "Well, some baby-doll!" he exclaimed. "Am I seeing aright? Is this my one-time co-laborer in Old Jamison's musty office, or is it some millionaire's daughter " It was Ellery Aiken, who had been in the office where Betty worked before her motner was taken sick. It was he to whom Ted had referred as a "poor sap." y He grasped her hand in a long lingering clasp that expressed as much as the languishing look in his bold eyes. Betty was delighted. Here was a chance to show off her fur coat where it .would be appreciated. Here was a chance to impress the young man who hadn't taken the trouble to come and see her after she moved. She had never been quite sure that Ted had not had something to do with that. But now here he was and taking in her changed appearance! CONTINUED THURSDAY V.B. ' Try, the Want Ad section.
