It will sap your youth, your strength. And. of course, Janice, you won't want to keep on working all your lite," , no— hardlyl" Janice's laugh was rather forced. She thought, Now what is Mother driving at? What does she think is wrong willi me that she must step. in and try to remedy? It wus wonderful having t mother like tiers, but it could tie trying. Janice had never thought that before. She had never had any.hing to hide from her mother before, either. '"You'll want to be married one of these days," This remark had a cnsual. innocent sound but there was much that was not casual or innocent behind it. "What makes you think thatT" Janice was slnd that she was occupied mending some winter things. • "Why shouldn't 1 think U?" Mrs. Hilary deposited heisell on the edge o» Janice'i clothing- strewn bed with an air that staled she nad no intention ol being dismissed because her daughter was so busy.
