She must steady her nerves, make an effort toward a saner outlook. By worry she was defeating her puipose. The growing unrest of several years had seemed fo reach a focal point that day. It had been pointed up, given substance, by her encounters with Cnrrmi and" little Florence Avery, not lo mention Mr. Fellows' frank criticism. It came over her that Dan was no longer a sustaining influence in her life. How had they wandered so far apart? Had she gone on without him—or had he deliberately veered his' path away from hers? She longed fov the old closeness and understanding. Impulsively, she asked, "How's the equipment business, Dan?" He glanced down at her, surprised, u had been a long time since she had shown an inlei-est in his affairs. "Well enough," he answered. "Any, chance ot a bonus this year?" Dan was on ;i drawing ac| count with a bonus due the first 1 of each .yonr. Somehow the bonus never materialized. " 'Fraid nol," he answered in- difTerently. "I'm jusl about covering up." .

The nagging fear pounced again and her panic mounted. "I've made a little provision," he said. "Enough to' carry me 'through an accident or illness—' enough .for casket money." His lips twisted .into what was meant to be a smile. Marian was ashamed of her feeling ot relief. She had fretted over the possibility of Dan losing his position through illness. In a little rush she said, "I hope we • don't need the casket money for a long, long lime, Dan."

They never had been properly introduced. She had gone to a pavement dance in Lincoln Park. It had been a hot September night. Even the breeze from the lake had been hot. Whom had she gone with? His face was a blur. AH faces had become meaningless blurs that night. Except Dan's. She and someone had danced past him as he stood alone in the circle pi onlookers beyond the ropes. The band had been playing 'Always." Marian sottly hummed the tune and again Dan glanced down at her, frowning. She wanted to meet the redheaded, smiling young man. She had to meet him. It was urgent. Chicago was big, he might go away, she might see him again. She kept turning her-head and he was always there—always.' Fifteen minutes passed, wailing minutes. Ideas flashed through her mind, fo be rejected. A nice girl couldn't leave her escort, she couldn't walk up to a- stranger and say, "I must know you— please dance with me." It simply wasn't done. But it had to be. Afterward NUirian thought that the fates must have realized the importance of meeting the redheaded young man. Afterward Dan'said that he had been cudgeling his brain for a way—any way. It happened simply. One of a group of girls standing near the stranger called out, "Hello, Marian—hello, Fred. Don't try to high-hat me." Marian and Fred, her escort's name had been Fred—Fred Thompson, stopped dancing and went over to the rope. They stood [alking, Marian, keenly aware of the redheaded young man who moved nearer. - Slio said, "Dance' with Margie, Fred—I'm tired." At which she dropped to a bench directly in front of the young man. When Fred anct Margie had dance'd away, he loaned down •',''• "Fun, isn't it?" nodding at the crowded pavement. "Yes, but hard going—not like a polished door." "I suppose/ not—and hot—old .take Michigan -is having trouble with Us' c'oolingjsystcm." : '•'"•';' They 'saw Tif.c'd .and..Margie making the turn at the 'far end. Margie was a poor" dancer—they might not go around again. Ho lime for a gradual build-up. The young man leaned closer, he spoke hurriedly. "My name is Dan Harkness, I'm white, single, and respectable—I'm salesman for the Dovvning Electrical Equipment Company — I don't make a-practice of this sort ot thing. Please—where do you walk, where do you lunch—what corner do you pass at what lime?" •Without looking at Dan Hark,ness, Marian said quickly, "I lunch every noon at the Toddle Shop— LaSalle street—at 12:15.", * * * 'HE remainder of the evening had been blurred like the {aces. Marian's emotions had been a jumble of shamed consternation at-her own behavior and a bewildering, heart-quickening elation. She had known that Dan Ha'rkness would be waiting at the Toddle Shop the next noon, and he was there, hat in hand, smiling diffident, and boyish. He had reserved one of the leather-covered booths. They had talked. Dan had seemed determined to establish his background and identity. His family lived in Iowa, he'd had two years at the State University, working his way. He'd been in Chicago six months. He'd just happened lo go out to the pavement dance—just happened. 'They gazed into each other's eyes, bemused by the wonder of if. Marian had brought the chronicle of her life up to date. Her family was a grandmother in Indiana. She shared an'•apartment with (wo other givls. She was u stenographer in the Grant Fellows Brokerage. She liken her job she'd had two raises in Ihe past year. She was going to be a private secretary one of these days. Dan had asked, "Will you let me see you sometimes?" And she had answered simnlv "Yes, Dan." ' Within Iwo weeks they gaged to be married, blissful two weeks in which Marian forgot her ambitions in the Grant Fellows office, when a great new gladness wiped out the lesser joys. Dan was making $35 •>'. week, they'd start on a small scale and spread out gradually. It sounded delightful. Nothing was so important as making a home for Dan.

MORRIS P1S1IBEIN Editor, Journal of the .American iHedical Association, and cf Ilygcia, the Health aiagazinc High, blood pressure .is probably the commonest' cause of death in the second half cf life. Alter the age of 50, one death out. ot every four is due hijii 'blood pressure cr its consequences. . . " The average a'ge of:, death duo lo high blood pressure without determinable cause Is 55 years. There are certain Instances in whbh the high blood" pressure Is .definitely related to changes 'within the kidneys with inability to pcrf;rm their Junction. Men of medicine" have carried on much experimentation -in rerent years to dRtcrinihe nhnt causes high blood pressure. The pressure Is di| rcctly proptrtionate to the power j ot the heart and the amount of resistance Injhc blood vessels. Since the iKNver of the heart is not raised In s;me cases of'high Mooa pres^ sure, authorities feel the rise is due lo increased resistance in, the blood vessels. This resistance depends on the caliber of the vessels and on the thickness of the blo:d. , * * * In high blood pressure o! unknown origin the volume and tho thickness ;f the blood arc not found to be substantially changed. U is argued that the important faclor in resistance of the blood vessels and the increase of pressure must be the narrowing of the bl:oci vessels. For example, in artcrio-ielero'iis., or hardening of the arteries.'the blood, vessels l:se their elasticity and it Is harder for. the heart to pump blood through, them. There are also certain . forces in the b:dy, like the secretions of the adrenal glands, which serve to [contract the blood vessels. In some cases high psycliologi:al tension or cmttlona.l excitement wiU bring- about changes In tho bo3y resulting In. contraction of .the blood vessels. As a means cf preventing or controlling high . blood pressure, some surgeons slop 'the cffecK of the nervous system en the blood vessels by cult inj . nerves, others suggest operations en the 'glands which secrelc the substances that bring about contraction of ths blood vessels. • .

Improvement of the symptoms of exceediugly high blood pressure uaa secii alter certain nerve ,ro:ts'related to the spinal cord had been cut. lu some instances the patients were able to take up work which formerly they had been compelled to discontinue. Illustrating this print, there is the- case of a young surgeon who was forced by rising blood pressure, "inability to' concentrate, failing visi;n, nnd persistent headaches, to resign his teaching positions and to give up his practice. Allcr an operation Involving the cutting of the nerve'ro:ls, his- blooci pressure returned to normal and he was able to return lo-his work.

The problem seem; io be for the expert -to. pick out the cases in v.hich the results u-ouM lie good and I: .avoid thosa in which they would be unsatisfactory, . '' . Most, surgeons-.feel surgery should not be tried in the early stages of increased bl:od pressure. They say- the operative' method should be confined to. those with severe high bliod pressure or •symptoms "that are . troublesome, and Ihcso who do-nol improve after having rest in bed and who d: not have any complications, such as failure ol the kidney or the hcan, which make a. fatality likely.
