' .» * * XIII fT"HE next-morning, as'soon ns •* Father had left the house, I telephoned Flora that I had to tee her: SKfe came over and I immediately 'Rpk her up to my room, then closed and bolted the door. I-kaid: "Tell me quick. Have you told Sam?" Flora laughed. "Louise, for heaven's sake, give me a little time. You don't tell a man the minute he asks you to marry nim that you're going to have a baby. That would be the height of indelicacy.""This"' is- no joking* matter. Flora." •;-.. "Do you suppose I don't know it'. Oh, Louise, what will I do? What will I do? I'm almost ou of my mind." * v I now saw 1 :that; Flora looked hoticw-eyed and pinched, that he hand3 moved restlessly, that then were t ew lines about her mouth But rh ; did not cry. She told in that if she started crying she be lieved she would never be ab>j t stop. She had made no plans. She dii admit that it had never occurre to her that Sain meant to asU he to .marry hiin. Indeed she ha gor^e to tell him about the bab and ask for advice when he sud derjly up and popped the questio Flora claimed that she was s surprised, she entirely forgot aboi the baby until after she had sni yes i _ ..••'; t "But why on r earth did you so yes?. Baby or no baby, you're cci tainly n it in love with Sam.V darling, you are such ii!d! • I do love Sam. I always ivo, even when 1 was too young nd silly and romantic to uncicr- and. I was never really In love ilh poor Bobby, but only In >ve with love. Always in the ickground there was dear Sam, •) strong and line and honorable, ouise, I adore him. It would be caven to be mnrricd to him. You ust believe it." * * * WAS never so surprised hi my life. There was no question ol lora's sincerity. I said: "You'll have to wYlic to lob. Perhaps lie can get a dia- harge and come home and you nn be remarried. After all, it's Bob's baby. It's up to him to take are of it ... ami you." "Bob's in France," Flora said carily. "He could never get a lischnrgc. And how could I niar- _y Bobby feeling as I do about .am?" I wanted to shake her. "Well, what are you going to lo?" I nsltcd blnnlly. "You've ilaccd Sam in n terribly humill- iriB position. I don't believe he'll ;ver forgive you, and I don't >lame him. What \mdor heaven possessed you to _'jniou'Ace youi engagement? .Why didn't yon t' Sam? lie's kind-hearted. He would have helped you." Flora gave a long, shnddcvinj sigh.

"Yes. Everyone knows—evcry- ine important, I mean." That evening Sam came over. 'Ie was pale and grave and asked o see Father alone. They went rilo the library and closed the loor.

Is It true that you lent Flornbello noney to go to Buffalo her husband a little over months ago?" "Yes," I said. "Humph!" Father said. "You were exttcmely culpaJJle. Under the circumstances ..." "Bob was about to leave for the front. Flora told me she would walk it I did not let her have the money. .^Her all, they were still married then." "Flora wns suing for a divorce.
