A 3ood of homesickness swept Jessica. Her father would like Oavitl, she thought. He would nelp her to get a divorce.

Hastily she consultec, the list Mrs. Flake had thrust in her hand- raisins, nuts, ind spices More preparation tor Tom's return. Her high spirits suddenly evaporated. Tom. How little ihougm she gave to Tom. What a ghastly homecoming his would be when re arrived and found that his wile and child Had left him. It's my li/e. she thought defiantly.
