PACE TWELVE. THE DA1L.Y COURIER, CONNBLLSVILLB, PA. FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, laav. BY HELEN SCHER^ERHORN YOUNG CHAPTER XXX W TCWMESDAY". . . Waiting afl day tor Dfck *» telephone.

Each time the bell gave tha first tinkle, Enid took the re- eei-ver att the hook and waited breathieealy to beaw Dick's deep "Hollo I" Why hadn't he ealledt There waa Anna telling: her lunch was ready. Several timea the telephone rang dtfting lunch. Once Ned was on the wire jtist fc» »ee how she WfW. The Century left at two-forty. Two o'clock now. Two-thirty. "Oh, Dick. Why don't you coll?" Two-thirty-five. Only five more minutes. He'd have to take that train and he had left for it, be- cimso she had callod up the hotel bi desperation and been "-told by the head porter that Mr. Grant waa on his way to the Grand Central. Yeu, Mr. Grant had checkrd out -- was leaving on the Century. The first tinkle of the bell. "Enid. I've been trying to get j/xm "I couldn't eosae to «ee yon, Enid." "I understand, Dick." *Tn be thinking of you, Enid, and waiting to hear from you,, 111 be thinking . . . " She glanced at tha clock. "Dick!" she held her lips close to th'e telephone and covered her mouth and tha mouthpiece with her hand. She glanced at the door. "Dick," (the whispered, "I haven't told Ned anything -- because -- Dick, I'm going to hnvt. a baby . . . It's our baby, Dick." How much can bo expressed Sn one wordt Al! the love and pride and f ear and guilt and giory which Dick felt, in his aonl were in that word. A clicking sound and then. "What number please? No, I eannot traco the number." One minute before train-time. Two-forty. The Century wns pullinp out, carrying Enid's heart with it. Yes, she would write to Ned nbout the baby's coming after he ·was gone. That was it. And she had told Dick the reason she was putting it off. She couldn't spend Ned's money to live on now -- she couldn't do it -- and for tha expenses of having the baby -- that ho simply could not and would not do. Oh, Dick -- if you were only here! Then she happened to hear some one say that money could be borrowed in advance from the bank whore nn estate was left as ft trust fund. That was how Mummy had left her money -- a trust fund for Dave and herself -but they said it would take a year to tettlo it. v hom-f.he' Borrow--make k loan. *!» aha gv bo eea about this 7 She could nt ask Ned abotat it. Sho ooctWa't write too Dam What woold she dot Nod would lea-re her money do- posited in the bank. Sho vncxiWnt touch a ««nt of it, no, nofc on« coat. It would be awkward to 70 tx the bank, but everything was to bo awkward and complicated. She would go right away to Mr. White, Mummy's lawyer. Do lawyers aak questions} · Wouid " he".'· want to know why J . .She could .itay it, waa' for a friend--another lie. How distasteful to her they were---lios, deceptions. She had nevar Icnown; anything about even an evasion of! the troth. She was not bred la that way. "Why certainly, Mrs. drier," iv White fiaid when site tremblingly askod him. "That is vewy common, !(t nmy take several! weeks, bat I£ can arrange t?.iat for you without any difficulty with the trust company. I'll advise you when it has gone through." Ned might stee the lottor--and it would no; be natural i!or her not to bav'O mentioned It, She thought quichJy. "May I call yon up and inquire, Mr. V/hiteT I would prefer to come down and get it from you direct. If yon xvill ask the bank to send it to yon instead of me I should b* jfrateful." Mr. White rubbed his chin aa she went ont of the office. "Strange lot this new generation. Suppose younsf Grier Ja ciose with hejf. She might be in debt. They pl*ty fcridga for high stakes these dam' 11 Tho weeks which prece-rled Ned's d«ivartnre were a terrific strain on Bnl'd. Ho was so kind and thoughtful in ever;/ arrangement for her comfort during his absence and so gentle anil affectionate. The night before ho left w»s one of torture. How could she have done this great injustice to the man who loved her so truly :md unselfishly? She couldn't keep this thing a secrot much longer now. As soon as she had written the letter to tell Ned it would be nil right, bat she didn't want to talk about it nt home---not until Ned was on tho ship way out there on the Pacific, because if ahe told it before to her friends some oni) might mention it to him. And there was her mother-in-law, Mrs. Grier. Sha would be wild with joy. And what a blov to Mother Grier the divorce wouM be! Oh, how much sorrow .that one night out there at Serana was causing! She'd close the an irtment for good, say she was going to Atlantic City for a few days and go west from there. That would save a lot of explaining. , When she took the train for the We ;f. she would cut loose from everything--because she would writ': that letter. Then she nnd Dick would live in the West. She would never come home again J Y*s--she wns goinfj out to spend Christmas with her brother and Pauline. She waa packing; Anna was ...... her. How she hated to leave Anna J She might never see her again. For the present she ·would keep Anna on fall salary, T« part suddenly with Anna, who had lived with her sinoe she ftrst started housekeeping., would be too awful. She couldn't do it now, That night in Atlantic City Enid slept like a woman drugged. The dull roar of the ocean soothed her, and ahe ftrft the relief of a first step taken on a difficult and hnrd journey--ot least she was ia action now and felt a certain rc- leasa 'from surroundings '· and friends which' brought Jjor trying situation to her mind continually. It was good to rit comfortably wrapped up in hcary rugs in n rollingychair and move slowly along tha boardxralk. Several times she saw friends from New York whom sho knew, but «ha pulled her hat down and her collar np. Sho didn't want to talk .to them. They would think it strar^ro that she was, in Atlantic City by herself. The day she iy;nt back to New York and crossed from the Pennsylvania Station to th*a Grand Central ahe felt like a fugitive. How strange J There she waa in tha New York that sho 'loved as only a born New Yorker loves the city --and she was running away from it. Bat there was nothing for her in her home--it waa her home no longer and Mummy--oh-Dick! She wanted to get oat into hi* country. That was where p v e belonged now. The mountain* would bolp her to think more clearly, and sho -would be with David and Pauline. Sho had writ- ton them that she would come direct to the ranch by train and would telegraph them just as soon aa she arrived m San Francisco, Chicago. Shu lunched and then went to her room and prepared to r«8t until dinner. Her train fo-r the West left about eight. She took off her dress and, as she stood in front of the mirror, brushing back her sloek hair, sho suddenly felt a gentle flutter under her heart--hke that of a fettered bird. Her baby! Tears came to her eyes, and she knelt by the bed and thanked God for the littla life which had just made ifscU 1 known to her and begged Him t«t watch over her. "Dear God--forgive me. I ioved him so." Then she wrote a letter to Ned, very short nnd swe«t, telling him that sho was poing to have a baby; ·that she had known it for soititt time, bat didn't want to worry him by speaking of it as ho had to make the trip; that she'd be 1! right with Piuiline and Dave; and ending with 'Take care oi' yourself: don't worry about mo!" The little life which she had felt had given her strength and direction to write that letter. Now Enid was proud--and not lonely. She held her head very erectly aa she sat at dinner tha'l night, and n sweet expression of dignity and tenderness was in her eyes which had never b^cn th?r? before. She? did .not bend her shoulders forward now. be t on tinned '_ I9rt. hr Krtoi Srh.rawrhOTT^V J ta Km. "-"-in THE OLD HOME TOWN Stanley MY GOOD MANx HERES A NEW DiME FOR vou .
