Juiifi 12. — Mrs. Helen Chaffec EiwnU, »e'.vly (lecied president o! the Molhu' ' Church, recently urged directors attending the nnnnal- meeting of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, lo u- nlte hi n crusade for righteousness. "The hour has struck," she said, "for the church to dare to tie a David." Mrs. Elwell is n daughter of the general for whom Camp cliaffee in Arkansas, near Fort Smith, was named. Her .home is in^East Hebron New Hampshire. , To "the harassed employer and the dissatisfied worker" and. to nations generally the Directors and the President of the Clinr:h held out the hope of harmony, not as n miracle, but rather as a simple witnessing to the fact that amity springs naturally from the application of spiritual power. Not only improved mdustriii: relations and better government, but also the health of the individual can be attained through spiritual understanding, the Directors contended. .Continuing in this theme, Mrs. Elwell said: "There are those who see little hope for amity aniony the nations, who even despair of establishing harmony, peace, or even friendliness among the families of the earth.

"Weyman must have been dreaming," Flora laughed. . - She was on my front porch one morning, stretched out in-ri swing. The early.autumn sunshine clap- pled her face and her loosely-cut lemon-co.lored dimity dress with a pattern of elm leaves. Her 'skin was as smooth and fresh* as rose petals. I said: "All right. It's none ot my business. Leah has a loaf of fresh bread. •...". "Dbrling, it is your business—I mean I_ know you aren't just curious, having .elected yourself, my conscience. But I promised Sam "You're wrong," I interrupted hurriedly. "It was just plain vulgar curiosity." . "Well, you're honest anyway." ; I made no comment. Presently Flora's 1 eyes twinkled and she asked: "Is your curiosity all but killing you?"" "Very nearly." • Flora laughed and lold me al about it. Her story was that she found out her father was going to see Sam, and she asked i£ she couldn't go along. When lie not only sternly refused, but went oft carrying a heavy slick, she was frightened half out ol her wils. So she slipped out of the back door and ran over to the Forbescs. As it was already dusk and the ights on, she wns able lo sUmd "lose by nn oprn window ;md hear every wort! that was said. * * * f^I-OKA claimed to have almost died of shame at her father's bsurd arid un warrant ft I attack on lear splendid, upright Sain, 11 ic rucsl friend, the kindest, neighbor ml most unselfish bencfnclor four orlnvn women over had.

"Goodby, Cousin Louise darling," Flora called softly. I knew then that in spite of the handicap ot carrying another man's unborn child. Florabelle had 1 Saint George dragon? Those 'two monlhs certainly wore (he happiest time ot. Sam's, life. Perhaps they were of Mrs. Tolliv-er's, loo. Flora's marriage to Bob I'inneran had put a blight on her family.
