"Is it really you, Joel, or are you Santa Oaus?" Janet said to her husband when she saw him standing on the threshold ot her small room. His great height made the room seem smaller. He stood there looking at her without speaking lor a moment. There was something in his face that told her he had not expected to see her again. There were other things she saw in his face before he grinned at her in the half shy way 'that she had always loved. TJio lines beside his mouth were deeper. His eyes looked tired and she saw that there was a trace of gray at his temples. He grinned and came over to her bedside. He dropped his packages and wordlessly gathered her in his arms. She felt pitifully small to him. He brushed the hair back from her forehead and kissed her. "I've been here many times before," he said. "Of course you have. Martha told me that she had been keep- Ing you from me." "The doctor said you weren't to At FINK'S APPAREL 15 South Federal Here You Can Buy a Complete Outfit for Your Spring Wardrobe at About 25% to 30% LESS Than for Same Quality Merchandise Elsewhere.

Joel didn't add that the doctor had said she had had a nervous shock and that he didn't want her to see even her husband. Another time Janet might have protested that her husband wasn't "anyone" but she didn't -say it now. She had been herself sucn a short time she hadn't yet made any effort to take hold. Joel was staring at her hungrily. "Do I really look so bad?" she asked. "You look like a little girl who 's getting over a party t h a t was too strenuous," he answered. He was afraid to say more. Martha liad tried in her tactful way to tell !itm (hat Janet had carried more than she was capable of and that he was not to talk seriously to her. "But look here!" He picked up his packages and dropped them in her lap. "I'm a Greek bringing presents." "For me? Oh davling, help me to open them." There were three new novels, an angora jacket that looked like a bnby's sweater, a box of white violets and a basket of Malaga grapes that looked too good to eat. "Oh, Joel, it's like Christmas!" She wished that she could say something to take the stricken look off Joel's face. He had done nothing and it hurt her to see him staring at her unhappily. "Don't look so sad," she said. "I'm really quite all right now. I'll be up and about very soon. Are they taking care o£ you, darling? Are you eating vegetables and fruit juices?" Suddenly Joel slipped to his knees and buried his face'in her bosom. "Jnn, I've been a brute. When you're well, everything is going to be different. I've bean through hell since that night when Martha telephoned me." She stroked his hair tenderly. "Oh, my sweel, I'm sorry it happened. I didn't know what I was doing when I \nn up here. I wouldn't have caused you any worry for anything in the world.

But don't you see, it's all right now?" "No, it isn't," he said with his cheek laid against hers. "It will never be all right until I make up 0 you for what I've done. You've tot to get well, Jan. I need you! If inything happened to you, I don't vnow what would become of me. 3efore I knew you I didn't amount to anything. I guess I'm not much ;ood now as a man but whatever 1 am, I owe to you." "If it comes to owing--and it never will between us--Mr. Paynter, I'm the girl who will be forever in debt to the gods. All I want is to be the sweetheart you wanted me to be the day that we nade our promises to each other in :he white house that you can see 'rom the north window. Remember?" "I remember everything," he said and blew his nose hard. Janet pretended not to see his eeys. "Now tell me about the apartment and the play. Is everything running smoothly?" Jael said that everything was fine. In fact, much better than when she was there and when she pretended to look disappointed, he Hastened to tell her that it was not so but that she wasn't to think of it. "You see you aren't coming back for a few weeks." "But I am! Just as soon as I nrn able to be upon my foolish legs, I've got to get back!" "Oh, no you do not, Janet! Martha and I have cooked up a neat little plan. You're going to stay out here until real warm weather comes. You're going to have rest and sunshine and Martha's good care. Jove, that woman is marvelous!" "Who's marvelous?" Martha asked from the doorway. "Didn't you ever hear that eavesdroppers never hear good of themselves?" Janet aslced blithely in a tone that look the impertinence out of her words. "I you mean I'm marvelous, I call that extra good," Martha answered complacently. "But maybe you'll change your mind bccausu I've come to ask Joe] to come down to supper and let you get a nap. Come along, young man. You're Janet's first guest and you're only allowed -a few minutes." "Maybe you'd better go, darling. Martha's a strong minded woman. But come back and say good nighl to me." "Even Martha couldn't stop me from doing that. Before I go you'd belter hear the news thai I'm to have the spare room three nights a week." When he had gone, Janet closed her eyes. Her lips moved gently. "Oh Lord," she said, "I thank You. I thank You for sending me this illness and making me see the wrong I was doing. I thank You for giving Joel back to me. Please give me the strength and vision to cherish wisely this precious gifi from You." When Joel came back to kiss her goodby, he held her in his arms with a strong tenderness nnd said, "Janet, I want to ask you a question. Do you love me?" "I do love you, Joel." "Are you in love with me?" Miss Florence O'Lcary, home economics instructor in Mason City hij;h school, is chairman ot the Important committee on housing for the teachers convention.

I always have been." "Forgive me, Janet, I have doubled for a long lime that you were. My heart has been sore with jealousy and the knowledge of my own inferiority." She pressed him closer to her imi could not find the words to ell him what she was feeling or .he things that his words made ler see. She know then, for the "irst time, that her friendship with Hussell Bede, her social independence, had been in a large measure .he cause of the widening distance jetwccn them and she resolved that from that day hence she would never give him cause to be unhappy. Her strenglh came back to her quickly after that visit. It was more than Martha's loving care that mended her. Her heart was well again. She had Joel back again. April slipped sweetly into May and the roses long absent from lier cheeks blossomed with their roundness. Her step was firm and she felt like a new person. She began to look forward to returning to her apartment in town albeit she was reluctant to end the happy routine of her days in Chester. She had never been so happy as she was (hen. Joel stayed in town on Tuesday and Saturday nights. The other nights he hurried out to the country after the theater and stayed with Janet until late the next afternoon. They went walking and one day they had a fishing trip. Another day they had a picnic. "H a p p y?" Joel asked nnd watched with delight the joy that Janet showed when she found a bird's nest. "Too happy," she said. "But I will always have this happiness to remember. We've got to start thinking of the future, Joel. Do you think we'll go back to California in the autumn?" Joel didn't answer her. He averted his face and made some comment about weeding the garden before supper time.
