HEIK r BY WINIFRED VAN DUZER WHAT HAS GONE BKPORK READR, young and lovely, is making her first journey alone to visit a friend at Haverford. On the train she meets Kenneth WTlmer, famotu artist, who saves her from falling from the platform Attracted by her old-fashioned sweetness, he feels strangely drawn to her and coddenly kisses net.

The loag lashes trembled upon her cheeks, ros« heavily still weighted with deep trembled and Tell again She yawned, dag a fist at her eyas, sat up and now the lashes lifted, and remained so. Bnt her ;ye« were fogged by dreams. She saw a *trajige room, a grate in which the fire had died. Where was she? How in the world had she got here? Not a sound anywhere and the windows were gray patches of dawn. Bewildered and a little frightened, she turned her head and then both hands flew to her mouth, choking back a scream. A man -- here beside her--fast asleep) With hia head fallen over sidewlse--why, his arm was .around her--she must have been here a very long time . . . in his arma . . . She remembered then. Tester- day she nearly fell from the train nnd he pulled her to safety. And ,tha walk up the mountain pass, (through five miles of country lanes (under blossoming trees and sweet (Springtime stars. He had kissed I her--oroujjht her here--and she (had fallen asleep, drowsy after the long tramp. How boyish he looked with his tall figure slouched a lit'Je on the settle and how handsome . . dark and handsome. But his nearness brought her no thrill now, only a sudden hot shame that rushed upon her in sickening waves, burned her face, stung her -yes. She had meant to eo on--half a do-/en times she had .'been at th« point of leaving--and he had begged her to stay. Just a littls while, iu^t a half hour. And then she had fallen n.«leep What would the uncles J,ay if they knew? 'What would Mary Stewart, who jhad expected her last night, think? i What would he think of her, this Kenneth Wilmer? But of course she never could face him again J And now panic seized her. Supposing he awakened? Bad enough that he should have last night to remember, how she crept into his 'arms. But if he opened his eyes now, saw that she was here still-'oh, get away, hurry and got away! Before the Flollys came down and took her for something other than just a hopeless silly 1 i Moving slowly, with the stealth I of a little cat, she lifted his arm, 'placed it along ths cushions, clipped forward to the edge of the 4 -wide settee. One* h« stirred, saying something n the broken way of the deep sleeper, and she held her breath. But Eve was on her feet at last and no-w she must waste precious seconds while she'irave htm a long look, fixing hia face in Kor memory. Byea set wde apart--how dark and full of light they had been last night.--and little linen of humor at his mouth. His lips were too sharply chiseled, too sensitive for a man's. But perhaps if they were not so be wapiti not be an artist. And his chin waa strong, protAI and a little stubborn with the cleft at the center. this She had let him km* her, Kanneth Wilmer, nrorgeous ,, tbat he waa. She had lot him kiss her and hold her in hU arms -- that was sweet -- nhno,it within ths hour of t h e i r tneetinif. W h y ? How could she suddenly have.become so different from the Eve Read a she had known all h«r life? 'TrM! Eve who hated the very suggestion of cheapness and who would fpv« Roger Mills, whom at least three of the uncles expected her to marry some day, only the most gin;rerly of kisses w h e n ha left her after parties and his ri'HU- lar Sunday night visits. Not that Roger expected anything else. Cheap . that? it so. But had this been Somehow she could not feel The thought of Kenneth A Man Here Betide Her Fa$t Asleep. A winsome face much yoanger than the tvveny-fw years he spoke of last night relaxt d and rested by sleep, and the daik hair tumbled out of its sleeknef-i. Well--she never would see him again, never fee] ula strong arms catching her to h m, never again raise her tips for his kiss. And this seemed stran,:e for she fplt some way that she had known him a very lotig time indeed--longer than she had known Mary Stewart or even the uncles He stirred again and Jn a flurry of dread the fpri tiptoed away, waiting in the little reception ha'll to peer and listen But no sound came from anywbfre and so she found her hat and the tweed coat, and the next minute was speeding down the long path to the wicket gate while the house behind her slept. Eve had only n vague idea as to the location of the farm to which Mary Stewart had come as a bride six months ago. It was beyond The Lane for Mary had mentioned this artist colony in her letters; accordingly Eve set out toward the west, ard only after ?ho had climbed a hll) and crosned a valley and roundeil a bend in the road did she stop to smooth the knitted biege |ack( t and skirt free of creased and dab powder at her went through her like golden light, flooding her heart, filling the early morning with glory. Could it be -- sho caught her breath al this- -- that she waa in love? Bjt that would be sad -oh, a tragic thing -- when she knew she never must see him again. After last night -- never again. Oh, she had been a fool 1 Blinded by suddf-n tears aha hurried on And after a time milk tni'-k came rattling along and Eve hailed the driver and asked her way He was going rijrht oy the Stewart fnrm -- did she want to ride? Well, gtep lively; he had to get going. Ev e stepped, glad this taciturn farm youth asked no questions. And when ho put her down and pointed to an old fashioned farm house a quarter of a mile from the main highway she felt that thing were not going so badly, if only she :ould think of fomc reasonable explanation to give Mary. But little Mrs. Stewart was more concerned with broiling bacon and coaxing toast to a goldpn crispncss than with the exact time and manner of her friend's arrival.

London is the arbiter in matters of dress for men. But, New York and Chicago, Boston and San Francisco and hundreds of smaller cities and towns throughout the United States may know what are the latest styles even before they are shown in Paris. A seeming paradox, but true. Merchants maintain representatives in Paris, London, Vienna and other European style centers who cable the latest news of the modes, and ship samples long before they are sold abroad. In America, the news is translated into advertisements and printed by local newspapers throughout the United States. And so, American women are able to dress in the latest styles in dress more accurately than the women of any other country on the face of the globe. Advertising keeps you abreast of the times in other ways. It tells you of the newest and best in every line of merchandise. It keeps you posted on what other people are doing and wearing and using. Read the advertisements. They are truthful and helpful. You can depend on their accuracy, for the reputations of the merchants sponsoring them guarantee their integrity. Read the advertisements to know what is going on in the world of merchandise.
