Continued) CONVICT'S DAUGHTER Continued From Comic Page Jim so confidently expected to find work was to span one of the jeavy rivers, draining into the ijjjlling bulk of Lake Erie, a few miles up from the town. It was already in construction, a graceful filigree of spindling wires above yawning concrete abutments. It made Lona shiver a little to look at its towering height, but Jim exclaimed at sight of it. 'Sweet job!" he approved, and was off to find the engineer in ·harge, leaving her to her own de.'ices. The place reminded her pleasantly o£ Bridgewater, as she hesi- *ate, wondering just how to go ibout finding rooms. There was no morning paper with its familiar "To Let" column as there would have been in the city, and ;he saw no sign indicating a real istate agency. Deep within her some instinct warned against attracting attention by making any pointed inquiries, and finally, with most of the day before her she struck out up Main street, away from the business section. Perhaps, by just walking, she'd happen onto something. It was on a shady street leading )ff from the far end of Main street that she saw, at last, a "For Rent" sign. It was in the window of a lomey looking white house with a wide porch and with a sudden feeing of having come home, she went up the walk and lifted the old- fashioned knocker. "Come in," a voice sang out and, vondering at the quaint informally, she stepped into the hall. Through a door to the right she taught a glimpse of a pleasant liv- ng room. Framed against the light from the windows was a wheel :hair, and seated in the chair was a girl of Lona's own age. The girl brought the chair for-, vai-d to the middle of the room as Lona stood, uncertainly, and beckoned to the visitor with a smile.' 'In here, please," she invited. Outlined in the streaming light, she was, Lona thought, the most ·emarkable looking girl she ever had seen. She was slight and straight for all her obvious slavery to the ugly chair, whose huge yheels flanked her on either side ike sprouting wings. Her hair was pure golden, and fluffed about her small head like a halo. Her £ea- ures were small, and perfectly molded. The eyes were a startling blue, shaded by long, doll-like ashes, and snapping with anima- ion. "You've come about the rooms, " suppose," she prompted, in a Inkling, silvery sort of voice, as l.ona hesitated, a little startled by the unexpected encounter with such sheer beauty. "Won't you sit down?" she invited. "I'm Dinah Morriss. -And this is the old Morriss home." "Thank you," Lona heard herself murmuring, seating herself politely on the edge of the chair. "I'm Lona Bennett. Mrs. Bennett," she supplied stumbling a little over the name. "I saw your for rent sign and I'm hunting rooms for my husband and myself." "I'm glad you came here." The Jirl's smile flashed out again, and Lona knew suddenly that she liked iier. She liked this place, too, the old-fashioned but comfortable and obviously refined surroundings, the air of well being, and of good living that seemed to hang about the high-ceilinged room. "The rooms are on the other side of the house," Dinah explained. "I'll show them to you . . if youll help me a little with this ily are vacating the Frank Chatman residence and moving to Nashua where he' will operate a filling station.

SUFFERS BROKEN LEG WESLEY -- Mrs. Mary Otis slipped on ice Sunday morning ^ust before going to attend church iervices at the St. Joseph's church, and suffered a broken leg. chariot of mine." She laughed. "This way. Just push it over the door jam, please. I can manage the rest." She chattered gaily as they went along the hall Lona had first entered, and through the door at the farther side from the aiorrJss living room. This part of the house proved to be a xving, composed of three spacious rooms; a living room with comfortable, \vell-chosen furniture, a bedroom with an antique ma- hopany bedroom suite, and a tiny cream and red kitchen, obviously newly built and done up in modern style. The mo ment Lona stepped into the gracious living room, she knew she had to have thi. place. It was hers, somehow, made for her.

Five Millionth Hoover Cleaner Produced in March Sets New Record The first week in March witnessed production of the five millionth Hoover cleaner, according to an announcement released Tuesday by H. W. Hoover, the company's president. This marks not only a new total production record for the electric cleaner industry but in the entire field of major electric household appliances, he asserted. The Hoover company is the oldest maker of electric cleaners in the country. The first Hoover cleaners were produced in a harness shop in North Canton, Ohio, in 1907, and were considered quite revolutionary at the time, as they introduced a beating and sweeping principle in addition to the simple suction which had been the only method before that lime. The company has been responsible for many of the developments in cleaner design, and employs a staff of 133 persons in research and engineering alone, the largest research staff in the industry. * POSTPONE MEETING PLYMOUTH _ The Farmers Wives and Daughters club has been postponed for two weeks.
