TUESDAY EVgNINGJ JDEOEMBEB 20^1927. . • God r«st ye. nierry Rentltman, liti nothlnE you dUniay! ^ITG words sounded tlirougb tlie hall.of the I>IR ofllce building In, a lilsh, qlonr soprano, which I inude both John Harden - , ' (uid his son, Ilalph, look nPi siarilpil and irritated. Then, UH 'merr,*- |ientleinen" sounded farther :*nr, Jolili Iliirden thought, "It's a food tlijns that woman didn't come n heresinpin«thatJ 'Merry gentlemen,' indeed:" and he loolced over »t liiis son, wiio sat brooding at his flest. .. "If[Ralph would only give me his confidence!" he thought "Money trouble of some kind,' I suppose, ind tdihelp him out if he'jl only - tell nje.i Troubles enough of my wrn. but not about money. If a million (Wllars would remove this 1hri«at^ ot blindness, I'd pay it In a ni'inut?.", , : /'Lot nothing you dismay!" came IhcL clear. li'4it voice again, and Kalph thou^lit: = "How can-1! help, being dismayed, with n pile of gambling debts I'll • oevorjKOt out from under? Father Kuspccts, too, I know, for he looks glum nil the time, and keeps his hand over his eyes so much. If he'd only ask me, maybe I'd have the courage to tell him." - As the sing- 1 n g v:o 1 c e neared pe office again. H a r growled that gtn hush [up [den "Tell to or go awn yi" Then the ofllce door ojienedi and tlie words ''merry jgcutle- men" made l)oth mfjh look lip lnipail<.ntly. But. Instead; of u bold .v<>ii"S woman-^stood u scrubby ijewslioy <;nving: { . " . "'f.v.lleclin' for the Trmed. Clr- fltil.iiiii' manager's so bosy he sent jiio." ; ' ' ""Ulicro ilid you learn toislng?"

''and I hope your j father gets well;"- 1 j}-'l'l!:!ik ynn!" exclaimed the boy. poiliiMinj the money. "Gee.ji hope be doe«, too, 'rause he's all the. family* I- got. He w^rks Ijn a factory where, the light's bad, and sometimes his eyes go wrong." ' "Couldn't be worh' somewhere else?" queried Mr.-Harden^ "Yep; there's a grand place g„ln' to be vacant at fhe paper-box. facfiy, where there's.hardly any! eye work, but there's so many after It—" "Waltr said Harden. "I know Mortimer who owns lliat factory. I'll give you a note to take! to bitn. What's your father's name?" "Albert Wickcns. and he's all right! .you tell 'em I said so^ known him all my lifo, an' recommend him.". , Presently Harden looked up, saying, "Here's the note, and'a dollar for yotir New Year's greeting In advance. Don't forget to come In with It- it's paid for, remember" I "You bet I'll come! I'd get a handsome llckln' If my Dad ever Tseard o* my j behi* crooked! I I'm proud o' my ole man an' I want to make him proud o' me." AVtth that the door slammed, and the young voice was beard caroling down the hall. The two men looked at each other, 'speaking slmultan«>oiusly: ySon, I have sonlefbrng to say—" TDad, I have sonicMiing to tell—" . Then, with half' embarrassed amusement, they both .:laughed heallngly. "I^guess tliere's a good deal;we hiave to tell ea<h other," said J6hn | Uirden. "I propose that we get a private room at the club, and have some luncli, and talk things over." "Grt^at!" snid fla'^ih, rising to help his father with his c )at. "I'm not lijjking forward, exactly, to what I have to say, because I'm •ashamed of It, l)ut It'll be a relief." "Nothing you can tell me will be as bad as this esirangemeut ha.s been," replied lils father." "it it's anything I can help you about—" ' "It Is, hnd ir you'll straighten me out Iliis lliiin.
