He didn't lock at Enid as she stood in her long black veil, holding Ned's arm. But she felt his presence, h sustained her. 4 How quickly those automobiles rushed bnck from the cemetery, a* If nothing had happened! Everybody In a hurry--nothing seems to stop--no one knows or cares what hearts are breaking in those* cars. . . . Home, home, just to He down-be alone. If she could only se« Dick for a moment.--in a room alone. He was so strong and understanding. He wouldn't talk to her. . *. For two days Enid lay prostrate. She could scarcely raise her hand or open h'ir eyes. They forced her to cat. Khe could hardly swallow the ' bioth. Then she suddeflky grew stronger. She must not give' in like this. She could Jiot think in terms of herself now; she was not only herself. She was herself and her baby. "Yea," she said. "I think the air would do me good. I'll go for a littlti drive if you wU! take me, Ned." _O;aly a few days ago she had drivijn on those same streets and then stopped in to see Mummy and tell her Hverything that she was doirc, and now--dear Mummy was 'tjrinp up there in Woodland . . . That awful brown box with the, flowers on it being lowered into the r-arth--goinp; down, down --doirn-- When she slept--it seemed an if she wero going down ·with it-- Never sieo Mummy n(;ai,i--Mummy would never see her aaby--Dear God, forgive me. I loved him so . . . Then Ned spoke to her. She had forgotten he was with her. "Dick's coming up to see you this afternoon, Enid. Would you caro to' see him? He feels very badly. lie was so fond of 'your mother, and your mother loved him. Do you remember how she used to call him the cowboy when he was u- little fellow--when he used to come down from school with us?" Would she care to see him? That was the only thing that mattered now. What would he think when' ho learned that she hadn't told Ned? "Enid," was all he said, when he shook hands with her. Then many friends cinme in--her aant and the minister who had married her. She felt herself blushing when she spoke to him--their rector. She could almost hear him Bay "until death us do part"--and she had not waited for death. At last she found herself for one moniijnt with Dick. He came "and sat near her while Ned .walked to the door with s6me people and the rest were, talking. "Dick, let me wait nntil I nm stronger to tell Ned--because I-- wo"--sho faltered. Some one was coming up, but Dick answered in a whisper, "Of. course, darling." She sighed a great sigh. · Things were easier now. She -had time hi which to breathe--to catch up. She'd be much stronger in a little while, thisn she would begin to ' straighten things out. And all the while Dick was saying to himself: "Enid--Enid--my poor darling. If I cou!4 only share your 'sorrow! If there were only somo- ' thine 1 could do!" better let her alone, he rea-' Let her work it ovit in her own vuajr. But bow soon would it be? 'This couldn't go on. He must rnarry her. 'jHe must clear this ;h»i" 'in. Each time he saw her Cva. a o'irei-t insult to Ned. It was cheapening themselves--all three of them. i Yes, he'd go. It was carrying 1 on an illicit iov affair for him to stay near her and snatch n few words hare and a few words there, "I asked Dick to come up for dinner tonight, but he said he, was busy. Ho said he was afraid He wouldn't be eble to come up to any good-bye, Enid, bat that he vfouid telephone you. The old boy's up to his neck in .work." . Enid walked slowly to the sofa and i lay down. She could have screamed her heart out. But he must hnve a reason. Was it because she hadn't kept her promise to tell Ned? But he didn't know "Dick, let a\e wait until I am stronger t» tell Ned." perhaps to hold h«r hand for a moment or feel her in his arms. But their love .wasn't that kind of a love. Enid waa to be hia wife. Ho would 'not touch her until she was .free. What day should be leave? He'd decide that night. But the OH Company decided for him. When he went down to the company's office that morning he waa called in to hia chief. He and Ned were ordered to make a trip of inspection in Central America and Mexico. He was tc go West to straighten things up there. Ned vrould join him, and, they woald sail in a few weeks from San I'Vanciaco. His head was dull. Everything waa blurred. Sf walked all the way downiawro, Oncn he -was nearly struck by, on automobile at « crossing. That nig-ht -when Ned went home he said very quietly to Enid: "I'm ordered to Central America. DJck and I are to go down to look over some properties there, I'm sorry to leave you for BO long, dear." ' Ned srolng airay . · . relief . . . terror. Shed tell him before he left Dick ffoing, too. When would she see him? She must see him. "When are you going, Ned?" "Dick's going West Thursday. Today ia Tuesday. I'll join him in two weeks. We'ru booked to sail three weeks from today. why she couldn't tefl him. But to her jple«. h« had wiid, "Of course, darling." He wouldn't have said darling If he had been angry. Sleep was impoesible that night. Before he had gone to sleep Ned had asked her whether she would like to go on the trip with him, if he could arrange it She could wait In Panama while h« want further. She had some navy friend* there oil duty. They would look out for her. Sho would Btay through tho cold weather and they could be coming back before it got, too hot. They'd start north byi April etzrely, April -- April -- the baby would be coming then. Go on a trip-oh--no--no . "That's Bweet'of you, Neddie," ohd replied, "bat I haven't tha. heart for anything like that now," He prestted h«r hand and thought it was her mother of whom (die was thinking. "What wul you do, dear, all tho time?" "T m«y go out- to David »nd Pattflnc," iraa Enid's quick r«- aponse. ''I would like to b« urith David now. Poor boy. You know ho-was heartbroken not to bo here at ithe *nd, or to got here for Mummy'j funeral. It all happened so quickly."

The DRY ENFORCEMENT SHAKEUP LOOMS AS CHARGES FLY .With accusation after accusation of inefficiency and lax enforcement rocking the prohibition department, Washington is expecting a wholesale shakeup in that branch of the government which ia charged with the responsibility of enforcing the eighteenth amendment. Senator William E. Borah (1) is in the center of the light, declaring: ''prohibition cannot be enforcs-d with the present personnuu" Others who have become prominently identified with the upheaval are Senator William .T. Han-is, of Georgia (2), who has demanded the resignation of Judge Paul J. McOormick, of Lou Angeles ( 6 ) , because tha judge criticized dry law enforcement methods; George W. Wickersham (3), chairman of the'Hoover law enforcement commission, which ia to report on prohibition in the near future; Andrew Mellon ( 4 ) , secretary of the treasury, under whose department prohibition enforcement falls and whose resignation, is being demanded'by Senator Nora's, of Nebraska ( 1 ) ; Attorney General Mitchell (6) has come to fche defense of the government by asserting that the president has been striving for better enforcement und that many reforms aUwiy arp in affect S, P.

U. S. PROVIDES COLLEGE TOMS TO DEAF MUTES Large Force of Teachers Is i'or Training School t By MARTHA M. STJIAYER United Prcee Special Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Jan. 2--More than 40 young girls from 3F. stales are wards of Uncle Sam at u school occupying one ot Washington's ilneet college propertk-fi. Theso girls wear short ekirts, bobbed hair and look and act like any other girls of their ago. But all are deaf and some aleo aro mutes. But for this Institution, the Columbian. In- etltution for the DeaC, subsidized by the Government, they coutd never get collflg training. No othoi 1 school in ho country givey collog-e ·work to doaf boys and girls. The problem of t r a i n i n g tho girl graduates of this echool so they can (Ind jobs when they go out into the world, has become complicated. Uncle Sam has been asked to provide additional instructors BO thef can learn to bo business women. Boys who are their fellow ntudents have l«ie difficulty making, a place for themselves, but tho girls aro finding it Increasingly hard. Some ,aro trained to be teachers o£ tho- deaf. This heretofore has been the chief-avenue of employment for doat college trained young women, -but state da£ schools aro more and more inclining' to "hearing people" as teach- «ra. There are nearly 3,000 jobs of this kind soattered over -.he country, but only 400 are fllled "by cioaf girls. Some of! tho girls take library work and are employed fix Inigo libraries and scientific inelitutione, whore filing and classifying can be dene by them aS well as by normal young women. Others learn expert dresemaking; eome teach in tho winter 'ind work in tho alteration departments of largo etorce in the summer. The management oE the echool ia asking the government to provide- bus- inoaa teachers and business school equipment eo tho deaf girl /students may be taught to run addiag, calculating, mimeographing an! other business machines. At present typewriting instruction ie available, lul not a complete business training.

They come, from 35 etates und aro awarded free government .icholarehips a f t e r passing special examinations. They arc IB to 18 years ol-l when they enter, and they spend five: years getting a college course ·which le taught normal boys and girls in f o u r yours.
