WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1933 THE OLD HOME TOWN By STANLEY] MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DOC PIUUSBLJRV WAS TUB VICTIM O "THINK WA^ A EAiev^-1* TODAV THE LOVE WAGER By EDNA ROBB WEBSTER CHAPTER 38. When the last cablegram had been distributed among the guesta, Stuart signaled that they might be opened. Followed a confusion of torn and rustled paper, a brief silence of concentration upon their contents, and then gasping exclam- tons. For each of them read the same words, simultaneously : "Dan Cupid announcing from Station L-O-V-E, the engagement of LIzetta Boyd to Stuart Logan nl." Chaotic excitement followed. Sturt had moved to stand beside Ltzetta, his arm. circling her possessively, and they faced the crowd together. Enthusiasm replaced surprise, both feigned and sincere; and excitement mounted still higher. The girls each kissed both Lizetta and Stuart, and the men clapped Stuart on the back, wrung his hand with congratulations and insisted upon kissing' the bride-elect, also. "You sure did win that betl" Patricia exulted, close to Lizetta's ear. " , "But with your help," whispered back. Lizetta the moment, but resolved that she would aoon possess Lizetta'B secret to use aa a weapon against her. Furthermore, she believed there was a way by which she could obtain this weapon very easily. A little time would favor her. When the congratulatory reception had ended, and after Stuart had proved his ownership by kissing Ltzetta before them all, he suggested, "Now, let's give the musicians a little rest while everyone does something to entertain us all. Get I Into a huddle with yourself or someone else, and think of a good stunt. Anything! No board of censors to condemn your acts. Genius may burn undlmmel on the Loganthan, out here on the briny deep. Here--we'll draw numbers to decide the order." Vague protests were soon overruled and groups formed for consultation. The host's suggestion had "clicked" surprisingly well In this group which habitually demanded entertainment and amusement while they contributed as little which had accomplished their approval and cooperation. ·Huh!" Patty scoffed. "It would have taken a heap more than I did rtt-help_ any one else land him!" ;' "Some speed to you!" Kerma ad? mitted, striving to display an enthusiasm which she did not feel. "But, remember, when a fish swal- - - · x landed IowsV° ur hook . vou him yet!" Marion was effusive, "How clever ici u.itvu» "And just to show you that we eat our own duck soup and like It, Lizetta, and I will open the program. Is that fair enough?" There was unanimous 1 approval. "Wlio is number two?" "The second act will be Tatro and McDonald," Jim called out In the ready for voice of a circus barker. "Okay, everyone get , of you, darling! Lucky for you he was down here where you hadn t much competition. Better make^it solid before he goes back north!" "What do you mean," Larry Dunbar demanded of Stuart, "coming down here for a couple of weeks and snatching off the girl we've been wanting for years ?" "It's about time someone rescued her from a mob o£ stallers, I'd say," Stuart retorted laughing. "Oh, yeah?" Jim protested. "Well, I guess she always managed to keep a step or two out of our way. I suppose she has been waiting for you all this time?" "And am I glad she did!" Stuart's glance for her was affectionate. "Clever fellow," remarked Count Diavinia to Marion, "but I wonder what he sees in that girl?" She laughed with disdain. "That is what everyone will wonder for the rest of his life." "He may wonder, himself, if ne discovers her secret," his words were guardedly low. Marion looked at him, startled "You know Lizzie ?" "Only slightly-- but better than she knows me. I had seen her one time before, but she does not choose t your acts now, so there'll be long intermissions. But you'll have to give us five minutes to prepare our own." He took Lizetta by the h'and and drew her into the nearest cabin, from which they emerged in little more than the five minutes, attired in costumes which he had provided for the balcony scene of Borneo and Juliet. Lizetta mounted the ladder to the small upper deck and entered the jilot room, which . arrangement served admirably for the balcony of ter private apartment. Stuart had provided her also with a humorous parody on the famous Shakespearean lines of the scene earlier in the evening, and she had committed them to memory. The act proved to be very successful and provided merriment for a quarter hour. There were several who protested that It was not fair for them to have the advantage of planning and rehearsing beforehand, but it was generally, conceded that their new status gave them aome privilege In this party. Budge and Jim had procured enough black somewhere to transform their complexions and then imitated Amos and Andy, with an . remember me. I her. shall not remind ' ugXi vo^o-yg I / CCvW VIV10 WVA.

"Please tell me about it!" "If I tell anyone, my dear, it should be Logan. He is the one who should kbow. But why should I protect him? He is nothing to me," he shrugged lightly. But hia remarks had ignited that unquenchable flame of curiosity in Marion's mind, and it spread like a. forest fire. Lizetta--her triumphant rival concealed a secret in her life which, if known to Stuart, might wreck her happiness. She would move heaven and earth to expose It! And if it proved to be as important as this man's words implied, she would make Lizetta pay a terrible price for this momentary victory over her. She herself was no longer interested In Stuart Logan, but wounded vanity and humiliating defeat relished this opportunity for sweet revenge over both of them.

Larry proved to be an amateur magician, who mystified them with a series of tricks with coins, cards, balls, a bell, a lady'a slipper and various other articles .which he selected at random. Mr. and Mrs. Dunbar presented a humorous sketch of a. husband and wife in controversy, "after five years of welded misery," as they titled it. Knowing what an amiable pair the Dimbars were, actually, added more to the amusement of their audience. Marion and the count collected enough odd accessories to simulate Spanish costumes and danced an excellent tango, and the acts continued on through a very successful hour of impromptu entertainment. "It went over much better than I anticipated," Stuart confided to Lizetta, where they stood against the railing in a far corner of the deck. She smiled up at him with proud THE TUTTS admiration. "I think anything which 1 you undertook to manage would be a success." "You think that because you love me." he retorted, and drew her within the circle of his arm. Marion, watching them jealously, as she strolled with the count to her cabin, remarked, "It looks like the real thing with Stuart and Lizzie. They fairly radiate happinens. don't they?" "Ah, yes," his expression was menacing, "but he would not be so happy If I should step out and tell all these people what I know about big fiancee!"
