Luckily Tiggie and Viola had not far to go ere they found a corner into which they were able to wedge themselves, where it was comparatively quiet and no drifting spray could reach them. "This is heavenly," breathed Viola, and he saw by the shifting light of the moon which suddenly shone ·upon her that she was smiling. "I didn't want to atay below tonight." "Why not?" he questioned in surprise. "It would have been such a shame to have missed this," she made answer, and he saw by her shining eyes that she really meant it. "I thought you'd probably be afraid," he said in his blundering fashion. "Oh, no!" she said, but sha offered no explanation for her absence of fear. They stood in silence for a space. Thev were almost entirely protected from the wind but they could hear the waves pounding on the other side of the vessel and the creak of her timbers as she rose and It came to Tiggie at length that she was waiting for him to speak, and he did so somewhat abruptly not without a touch of embarrassment. "Well, you know what I want to talk to you about, don't you?" "Yes, you told me," she said. Her face-was turned from him It was only now and then that he could see it clearly, but she was close to him, within touch of his hand, and there was no reluctance in her attitude. She was evidently waiting for him to proceed. He did so, still not wholly at his ease though, still assuring himself that the situation held no difficul ties. "Well, look here! You tell you're going to stay with the Ruth erfords. But you can't do that indef initely!" "Oh, no!" she said. "Only for i few weeks." "And then what?" said Tiggie. "I don't know," shs said. "That'i as far as I can see." Tiggie turned upon her square ly. "You can't go on like that," hi said. She made a slight gesture of help lessness. "Are we meant to do any thing else?' she said. He felt again that curioua sens as of being pierced; it was the ef feet her forlornness always had up on him. "You can't," he said again "There'3 too much at stake. There' --he spoke with conscious effort-"the child. Do you mind telling m when you're expecting the child?" "Oh, not yet," she said. "Not ye --for along time!" "When?" persisted Tiggie. She hesitated, and he had a fee ing that she did not want to te him. But eventually her answe came. "My baby will come in Sep tember. I shall have found--some way out by then." "You can't count on that," said Tiggie. "Things won't get any easier for you. You've got to think ahead --make some provision." haven't any of their own to spare." She made a quick movement of protest. '"1 wouldn't take it from them," she said, "if they had." "You'll have to take it from someone," said Tiggie bluntly. "You've got to live, you know." "I may die," said Viola simply. He turned upon her with a sudden anger that surprised himself. "You'll do nothing of the kind!" he said. "So stop talking about it! You've got to have money to carry on with. That's certain. And you're not going to take it from the Rutherfords. You'll have to take it from me." She drew back in a moment, as he had known she would, and stood as it were braced against him in the tiny alcove in which they had found shelter. There was mute resistance in every line.

Making Hay While the Moon Shines By Paul Robinson BRADFORD About 60 were present, including representatives from Garner, Lake MHls and Swea City. It was then, as they rose again He met it with that new assump- fire that suddenly on the swell, that the tion of authority which he could not remember that he had ever exerted broke loose like a raging monster. over anyone before, of which indeed he had never before believed himself capable. He waited for her voice to come to him--that childish, husky "Oh, I know!" she said. "But hat?" He caught a note of desper- tion in her voice, but she went on apidly before he could answer. What's the good of it? It doesn't ad to anything. Only one gets cared." Her voice seemed to die into the esolation of the night. She looked bsurdly small in the enshrouding waterproof, like a white moth hid- ng from the-tempest. Tiggie was ware of a. distinct struggle within imself before he spoke, but against 'hat impulse he made resistance he ould not definitely have said. Only he was so young, so pathetic; one ·as apt to forget that she was anything more than a child who had trayed away into the wilds. 'There's nothing to get scared about," he said gruffly at length. I've said all along that I'll help you, and so I will." She glanced up at him. "I've been 10 afraid--all along--that you'd feel ibliged to do that," she said. "Oh!" said Tiggie with a swift flash of intuition. "That's why you've tried to avoid me so often, is t?" She uttered her faint, protesting augh. "Well, of course I don't want you to feel--like that." "But, my dear child, why not? ' said Tiggie with sudden force. "You say we're meant to drift on from one 3tage to another without looking ahead. I say we're meant to help each other along. And if you ask me I think mine is the more practical policy of the two." 'You are so--workman-like," said Viola. "I mean to be," he answered. "Up to now there hasn't been much point in trying to come to any decision. But now--now, when we are only a day or two off home, we've got to consider things, and make some sort of provision for the future. You say you haven't said anything to the Rutherfords?" "Not very much." She hesitated slightly. "Dr. Rutherford did ask me one day what my plans were. I said ·I said I should go into the country quietly somewhere--and wait for my husband." "But you're not expecting him?" said Tiggie sharply. ''Oh no! I don't think--I shall ever see him again." She spoke as one uttering a fact long since faced and accepted. "But I said I would stay with them for a few weeks as I wasn't in any hurry to get anywhere, and I would help them to settle down somewhere. Mrs. Rutherford seemed to think it would make a difference." 'Of course it would make a difference!" said Tiggie. "But--you know, you ought to be paid if you're going to take on this sort of job." "Oh, but not for such a little while!" she said. "Dr. Rutherford said the same, but I simply couldn't think of it. So he said--he said he would make it up to me later, when the baby came." "I see!" said Tiggie with a certain grimness. "But they don't know you haven't any money, and they that he had begun to know so well; NEED MONEY?

Phono 224 but not with any actual anxiety, for since he had saved her from shipwreck she could not refuse his help now. But when she spoke at last, he was assailed by swift concern, for he caught a quiver of tears in her words. "Captain Turner, if--if I agreed to this, if--if I do accept your help, you will promise--you must promise--that you will let me pay you back." "Oh, call me Tiggie!" he said consolingly. "Yes, of course you shall pay me back If it's going to make you any happier. I don't mind what you do--so long as you're happy." There came a flicker of moonlight and he saw that her face was working. He burned afresh with that compassion that seemed to consume him like an inward spreading fire, but he could find no words to comfort her. There were no words. And then--very suddenly it happened--that third turn of the wheel which was to alter the whole course of his existence. The wind that had temporarily abated reawakened and came hurtling over the sea with redoubled force. The brief lull ended with the violence of a blow, and the ship, struck broadside by an immense wave, plunged heavily. Even Tiggie, caught unawares, shifted his ground, while Viola wag flung full against him. Instintively he thrust out a protecting arm, and as instinctively she clung to him while the vessel gradually righted herself. As she made a movement to withdraw herself his other arm went round her, clasping h«r, encompassing her, holding her captive against his breast. She made a faint resistance but she offered no outcry when he overcame it. And so, strangely, primitively, Tiggie tha prosaic, the commonplace, overstepped the bounds of convention, hardly know- ,ng, in th« moment's wild rapture of possession that- he did so; and when the moon shone forth again he was pressing his lips in fierce hot kisses upon th« pale, flower-like face upturned to meet them.

There were several cases reported and as some of the students had the symptoms, it was deemed advisable to close for a time. 0. E. S.

In the evening a regular meeting was held which included inspection by ilrs. Lenz. A midwestern robber had two others locked up for robbing him.
