Aside from Glands^, anc Is In tKa world, johlcas and broke Jim gives Loiia a lead for another job anil she applies ot the ofllrr of the Western Realties company. L.ona likrg her new ·woik, seci wort: and more of Jim evenings. On Sunday fiey decide to go to a nearby lake Cor a picnic. AvoidinR uld friends who had snubbed her. Lona plunpes into the lakf, infuriated, ana fiwims out farther than sliu intended. When Jim tobnie 1 ) Lona from drowning after aho had been seized witii cramps, she realizes they love one another. Returning from their outmg, the tlndu a .telt'tfiam from iho prison warden stat- ins her fntner 11 near death. (NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY) CHAPTER THIRTEEN WHAT, LONA kept asking herself all through the next six hours, while the speeding train earned her toward the grim prison hospital where her father lay dying", would she have done if this thing had happened before she knew Jim? Back in the days when she was alone, broke, jobless and friendless. She snuddercd to think of it. For Jim had taken charge of everything. He'd seen to it that she made the first train, south, and made arrangements for a chair when he found there was no Pullman, He'd driven her to the station himself in the same gaudy car they'd used to picnic with In the afternoon, and stood with her hand m Ins until the tram came shrieking into the station. He'd even offered her money. But she waved it back decisively. "I've enough, Jim. Besides, this is my debt. It's got to be MY money. You see, don't you?" "Of course, girl. I understand. But if there's anything I can do, you're to wire. You'll remember that?" "I'll remember, Jim, and-thanks for everything 1 . You seem to be always--help'.ng me out." A little sob choked her, and she clung to him as the warning bell on the tram so'.inded and he had to leave. *'Goodby, girl, and good luck, I'll sec Sanders in the morning and tell him what's happened. Don't worry, he'll hold your job until you get back. And don't take it too hard, girl. Maybe it's--all for the best." With that he was gone, and she was left alone to Cace the dragging miles between her and her faiher. Poor, patient Daddy! She realized, as she watched the slow passage of the light-streaked night outside the car window, that in the back of her mind there always had been the hope that some day she would have her father back again. That she might be able to make up to him for what he had suffered. That hope was futile, it seemed. She laid her head on the arm o£ her chair and sobbed, as the grinding wheels gathered speed. * · * Dawn was breaking when she stepped, finally, from the train into the station at the state capital. "Northwestern Penitentiary," she directed the staring taxi · driver In a tired voice. "You can't gH in there now, lady," the driver objected. "They don't let nobody--" "It's an emergency," she cut him short. "Take me to the warden's office." The city was stirring as they flashed through it; the busy, teeming capital city in which her father I had lived for so many years now, j without ever having seen more of i t . than she was seeing at this very moment. The thought maddened her, and as they approached the gray stone walls of the forbidding- group of buildings where were housed the wards of the state, she could have cried out at the unfairness of it all. Out of the east the sun had come up rosy and promising, flow Daddy had loved the sunrise! Was he seeing it now, she wondered? "Was he still--oh, but he must be still alive! He couldn't have--gone until she saw him. The fear that had been eating- at her all through the night still nagged her as she forced herself to speak calmly to the sleepy- eyed attendant in the warden's office. She HAD to tell Daddy about herself and Jim! He had to be alive! She was trembling when the attendant raised the warden on the phone. "He says you're to wait," the man told her. "He'll be right over and take you to the hospital." "Oh, could you tell me if--it's my father I'vq come to see. Could you tell me--how he is?" The fellow shrugged. "Durmo, Is he real bad sick?" His voice was disinterested. "He's--they've sent for me." "I wouldn't know about the sick ones." He shrugged. "Ain't none of 'em died during the night, if that's what you want to know," He crossed his feet and looked at the desk impatiently. She got the impression that she had disturbed his rest and that he resented it. She sat very still, after that, until the warden, came. She had met Warden Lewis on her last visit to the place, and remembered him as a big, gruff, wheezing-, kindly sort of man. His lined eyes softened when he saw her sitting there, and he came over and took her trembling hand. "I'm glad you got here, miss," he told her, his manner holding a quaint, old-fashioned deference she would have found charming under other circumstances. "He's been asking for you." "Oh, may I see him, please? How is he?" "You muat Tje prepared for a change in your father, miss. He's been sick quite a long time, you know." "Sick a long time? And I didn't know! I left h:m here alone and sick. Why didn't you tell me?" "He wouldn't hear to it. He's an unusual man, your father, miss. You'll have to be a great woman to be worth what he thinks of you. It's a shame, this pneumonia catching him the way it has. Another month and the board would have granted his parole." "Parole! You mean they would have set him free? Sent him back to me? And I didn't know!" "Not the way you thinfc, miss. You see, your father's lungs were never very strong. He would have had only a few months anyhov/. That's why we were going to parole him. . , , But--he's got pneumonia now." "Is there no hope? Are you sure? Oh, if he'd only live so I could get Mm out of here! Get him home with me. He could die, then, lit leace. You're sure there's no hope?-, i'll do anything. Anything!" i "Well, of course, I'm no doctorj We thought maybe seeing you. might--" "Take me to him! This minutej What are we waiting for? Take ma! to him! I')! make him live. He can't: die, not now! Not until I have aj chance to malte up to Mm. He can't? die!" ; But the stgut of her father's facaj against the hospital pillow, and thai sound of his labored breathing made her frantic resolution wanw as swiftly as it had been born. He] was thin, so terribly thin. His hair had whitened since she had seen! him, and he looked old and broken.! "Daddy!" She thought she was' crying his name aloud, but the] word came from her lips in a, shocked whisper. "Daddy, it's) Lona!" Humbly she went down oa her knees beside the narrow bed. He looked up at her with staring eyes, uncomprehending. ' "Lona," he brought out, in a.! hoarse, changed voice. "Lonal! That's my girl. You mustn't tell) her! Promise me you won't tell her.j She mustn't--know . . ." "Daddy! It's Lona. I'm here! rvej come--' ' "She mustn't know. . . . Lona. mustn't know . . . " "Daddy, please--" she began, her voice raising. But the prison' doctor caught her eye and mo-| tioned to her with a warning hand.1 Don't you know me, Daddy? She braced herself and tried to make him understand. "I'm Lona! I've' come to help you get well--" "I don't want to get well. She'll be better off if I'm gone. Lona'll be better off without me. . . . Do? you know my girl? Do you knowj Lona?" He tried to raise his tor-! tured body on a thin arm and peer, at her. ' "Daddy! Oh, Daddy!" A sob, forced itself through her lips despite her efforts to be calm.' "You won't tell her I'm sick, will you?" the hoarse voice begged. "You won't tell her? I don't want her to know. Lona mustn't know. She's my girl, Lona is. My little baby girl . . . " The voice trailed off into a fit at coughing that racked the wasted frame caused the doctor to spring forward. Warnir.gly he nodded hii head toward the door, and Lon; felt the hand of a prison nurse a] her elbow, hurrying her outside, pushing her away. Unresisting, she went, trying to gather together her scattered! thoughts. It was hard to believe! she was seeing him at last. That: pitiful figure was Daddy, her father. When she had known him, ha had been straight and upright,' with clear eyes. What had they done to him here in this horrible place? She sobbed, suddenly, aa the nurse pushed a chair her way. and helped her to seat herself out in the hospital corridor. "You mustn't take it so hard." The nurse tried to comfort her, "He's delirious, you know." "Will he--do you think he'll know me before--there's something- I've got to tell him." "We'll call you the moment he's lucid," the nurse promised. "Thera is nothing to do hut wait." (To Be Continued) ADMINISTRATOR'S NOTICK.

He said that some day daylight slaving would be Siatcwidc so the progressive thing to do was to follow the example of the many othtir towns and cities now enjoying it. "It's purely :' tase of education," observed Chan man Moore, ''and only through education may we hope to bring the principal objectors around to our viewpoint It is a generally accepted fact t h a t with the possible exception of the agriculturalists we live by the cloc'c. What we have to do therefore is get to work and sell tnc public on the idea." II. Von Dai'iii, chairman of the ScoUdule group representing the mo:chants, bind his town highly favored Lhc plan. "Why Lhc Fricle Company employes have been working on a semi-Cast time basis for the past few years," he declared. "The only difference is Instead of turning the clocks ahead the employes go to work earlier." Mayor \S r . J. Crow of Uniontown called attention to Lhc last time observed at the couithouso during the summer months. Although the clocks a i e not spt ahe^d, county employes report to work an hour earlier and me finished one hour sooner. It was the consensus of opinion that the next impoitant step is to go lo BiownsviUe and meet with representatives of moi chants and city government there and tiy to gel them interested. With the county's three .large i .immunities observing fast time it was believed many smaller. towns would follow suit. Chairrraix, Moore promised to start the ball roll'ng by drranging an early meeting with Brownsville. This will . be followed by similar conferences | with Scottdale_and Mount pleasant. All othci communities will be contacted by some means, he said, and il all persons wleiesled -n getting fast Lime would do a little missionary work .t will be greatly dppicuateci by the fast time sponsors. 11 independent City Stores Show Gain in January Eleven reporting independent city stores reported retail sales of $68,645 during January, according to estimates of the bureau of foreign and domestic commerce of the Department of Commerce.
