Sinn has always-been nown for holding onto his oncy," Flora laughed and looked mys- rious. A NEW champion lor the Tollt- •**• vers did not arise until the XV Tolli- hc Eummer of 1915. The Carstons wrote Mr. Stokos the lawyer, that tfae Tollivers had not paid their ftttt for rnany months and that pome thing must bo done about it. Mr. Stokes did something immediately— he sold the house to a Mr. ^phn C. Jones of New York City. $(r. Jones, it came out, had bought ft as a bargain on Mr. Stokes's fpcommcndation. On top of this, Jfr. Jones amazingly sent word to Mrs. Tolliyer that he would be pleased to *hav e her live i n the fcouse, rent free, • as caretaker wagged considerably, and speculated endlessly about the Mr. Jones. A week or so later I met Flora downtown and walked home \vitt b*r. J flora can-Jed the baby well, anc Iwr dress was cunningly contrivct 4o conceal her condition. She hm never been so radiantly beautiful |wr sWn so'dewy and fresh,-he color ^30-exquisite,, her eyes s delpty blue. She herself brough «p the subject of Mr. Jones. Sh lau Rned tha t the Toll i vcrs w e r undeniably lucky and that neve never had any family had a bel ter, kinder, or more gencrou friend than their benefactor. ^ ".Oh, is Mr. Jones a friend? "asked quickly. \ /"Why, of course. You mean yo haven't guessed? Darling, you'r just being tactful." \ "Tact Is hardly my long suit, a you know. Come clean, niy swce \Tell me who it is tj'.Why, Louise, think.

She chose o have n fainting fit and to claim o believe she wns dyinji and bail see dear Sam just once, far a ny minute. 1 V When Sam, summoned by Mrs. olliver, arrived on the run and uL of brenlh. Flora was lying in ed, very white nnd barely able to a!k, her wislfulncss undoubtedly ccentuated nlmost unbearably. >hc took Sam's hand and kissed it. Vcver, never could she thank him or what he had done for her nnd icrs, she -, whispered. She had aiown «it once who had bought he house. No one else in Jrhe vholc wide world was so generous, o magnificently kind; It turned out that Sam actually vas the mysterious Mr. Jones, ac- ually had. bought the house. Otsego went from fit lo fit. , ''After on'b look nt the prcsuin- il)ly dying B'lora, poor Sam fell on iiis knees by the bed and sobbed. Flora comforted him gently. Then Mrs. ToHiver came in and shooed him out. Sam came straight to Father. Father told him he was a fuol, that Flora was nol in the slightest danger of dying, and that he had belter light out of town and slay away for an indefinite time. Sam sheepishly promised to go, but he didn't. And Flora, of course, gradually grew belter. Dear Sam had given her courage.. . . Sam lor a while went lo sec I Flora every day, sent her roses., unshels of white roses, and raro wines, old brandy, perfumes. Ot- Kego's fit turned into convulsions. Humors flew about the town as thiclc us snowflakes in n winter storm, Sam was engaged to Flora. lie hadn't a Chinaman's chance^. Me didn't want to be married, but Flora had threatened to cut her throat—and as Father said, n man did hate the sight of a woman's blood. The fish was hooked, but the fish was strui<glm/j. Snm had brought it on himself by being such a fool. Sam was old enough to know belter. And finally: "The least he can do is marry her. After all . . ." CAM came again, to Father. He said he was almost out of his mind, that he didn't know what to do, that he'd like to horsewhip publicly whoever it wns f.'ho hud. started Ihc rumor that he had fathered Flora's child. "Thou K's not your baby?" "Holy cow, no." Father said: "I've told you he- fore and I'm telling you now that 1C you don't want, to marry Flora, you'd better get out of town to- ulfjht. And I don't mean tomorrow." , ' i Sam groaned. He explained that It was impossible to leave his business just now, lie had done nothing but show Flora a little neighborly kindness. Why should h* have to leave town, leave his comfortable house? Father InugUed and told him V? be his age. Sam went home in a huff nnd hardly spoke lo Father for several days. He went no move to the Tolli- vcrs 1 , scut no more flowers or wine. He told Nelson that Flora ought to have a keeper. Nelson's look was a question. "Oh, Lord, you too!" Sain exploded, making for the door. Halfway upstairs he yelled down over the banisters'. '"The answer is no! If you knew what I thought oC women, all women, every doggonu one of them . . ." About ten days later Olsego had n new ToUiver lidbit to chew on. The husband and father, long absent and seldom or never mentioned, came home. wi-**-'j*/ (To Be Continued) wf*K RADIO REPAIRS 1 AND 2 DAY SERVICE ON ANY MAKB Oil MODEL RELIABLE WORKMANSHIP.
