She sat down on the floor anc pressed her fnce against the smooth coldness of her hope chest. It was a beautiful cedar chest that hac served her mother, too, when mother was a bride. "I don't care how late it is,' Louise muttered. "I'm going to look at my things," She pulled the chest out a littl SHH.'/N W- YOU WAMT ' y/ - YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY; BECAUSE WON.' way the wait, just as her mother's voice called to her from ^he front room. "Don't stay up too late, dear. It's after 11 o'clock, you k,pow." "Yes, I'll go to" bed soon, mother." She tiptoed to the door and closed it softly, so that the light would not disturb her mother. Then she returned to the hope chest and almost reverently lifted the lid- She stared down at the She laid the set aside and drew out another. "I'm sorry I put so much yellow nto this set. It's Ihe finest one I lave. I didn't know when I embroidered it that yellow doesn'i wash so well. I thought it looker bright and cheerful. Perhaps if I wash all these myself, the yellow won't run." « * * fsFE after another she drew out her doilies, some embroidered, others edged deep with lace. "How did I ever find lime to do so much," she wondered. "But, my goodness, I suppose it's 10 years since I began to work for my hope chest." She looked back almost wistfully to the little girl of 12 who had put away her,dolls and started so innocently to prepare for the duties of her womanhood. Underneath the table linen was her fine nainsook underwear. This had all been made by hand. Patiently and lovingly she had made the French seams and sewed on the lace—a row of insertion, a row of beading, and a row of edging aouse, after she became a wife l^ouisc was entertaining friends a ;ea. She was at home on Thurs days. She sal primly on a stifTly upholstered chair near the win dow and exchanged commonplaces with two other brides. * • T^HEY were all very dignified, feeling keenly the importance and responsibility of their position as young matrons. After they had gossiped for a while, Louise invited them into the back parlor for refreshments. Over the delicious tea and cake tt\eir still exuberant girlishness could no longer bear the restraints of company manners, and the three brides began to exchange confidences about their housekeeping problems. "You know. Cecile has a maid," said Josie Brown, "and she doesn't get up in the morning. She has a Man Seeks License For 'Housekeeping' CONWAY, Ark.

She drew out set after set of rtoilies and teaclolhs with varying designs worked in g.iy colors. "I don't know," she murmured, "The holly pattern is pretty dark for a while background.

"I don't suppose you'll have lime or your artwork now, Louise, will ou?" Sariie Gibson's question was mildly spiteful.

She was putting more daubs of paint on a canvas and making the awfulest. most meaningless mess out of it all. And Louise was so wrapped up in it t she had hardly paid any attention to Sadie ami had showed in just the way that she wished Sadie would &o away and leave her to her painting. "Yes, your housework will lake up all your time, I guess, won't it, Louise?" This was from Josie. Josie was quite unaware of the malicious pleasure Sadie was lak- ing from the situation, but Louise sensed it instantly. (Te Bt C*nUniwd) EXPERTLY REPAIRED OfllUTY SHOC SHO T?i wr. MSIN ST.
