There are three different articles In this set, all of which are made of coarse linen. The receptacle for shirts Is In the shape I of a large envelope, the edges bound ' with braid, and should be large enough to contain two shirts. The bag for collars i» made from the same material. The bottom Is circular and made from pasteboard. A good Idea is to sew to this a strip of pasteboard about two inches deep. Th^se should be covered with the linen before being fastened together. The upper part of bag should be full and gathered with a drawing string. This protects the collars from crushing as well as keeps' them clean. The third article in the set Is a plain linen bag lined with oiled silk. This Is intended for sponges and protects the contents of the suit case from tho moisture of this toilet necessity after It has been used. The hairbrush can be put In this bag If no sponge is used. The monogram can be embroidered on the outside. To make a slumber robe for baby sllkollne, three bolts of No. 1 ribbon, one skein of Shetland floss and one bat of fine cotton.

She was so sweet, so brave, yet so desperately miserable over leaving her little girl alone in the world." . Dr. Van Valkenberg sat silent. It was true, then. This was Katharine's child. He had not known of the death of Armitage nor of the subsequent poverty of his widow, but he had known Katharine's baby, he now told himself, the moment he saw her. "Well," the nurse resumed, "after she died we raised a small fund to buy Sonte clothes for Hope and take her to Chicago to her new home. Mrs. Armlrnge has a cousin there who has agreed to take her In. None of the relatives came to the funeral. There are not many of them, and the Chicago people haven't much money, 1 fancy," Dr. Van Valkenberg was hardly surprised. Life was full of extraordinary situations, and his profession had brought him face to face with tuauy of them. Nevertheless a deep solemnity filled Mn, and a strange pe:i"o settled over him. "I vrant her," he said briefly. "Her mother aijd father were old friends of mine, and this thing looks like fate. Will they give her to me—these Chicago people—do yon think V" Tears filled the woman's eyes. "Indeed they will," she said, "and gladly. There was"—she hesitated— "there was even some talk of sending her to an Institution before they finally decided to take her. Dear little Hope! How happy she will be with you!" He left her and went bock to the seat where Hope sat crooning to the doll. Sitting down, he gathered them both up In his arms, and a thrill shot through him as he looked at the yellow curls resting against his breast. Her child—her little, helpless baby—now his child to love and care for! He was not a religious man. Nevertheless a prayer rose spontaneously in his heart. "Hope," he sold gently, "once long ago I asked a little girl to come and '[live with me. and she would not come. X'ITV i wu'it to s?k you to comi> and stay with me always ;;:;d u>> m.v jv.-n little girl and let me take care of yoi add make you happy. Will you coinoV The radiance of June sunshine brok out upon her face and shone In th. brown eyes upturned to his. How we! he know that look! Hope did not turn toward Nana, and that significant omls slon touched him deeply. She seemed to feel that here was a question she alone must decide. She drew a long breath as she looked up at htm. "Really, truly*?" she asked. Then aa he nodded without speaking, she saw something In his face that was DAJW to her. It was nothing to frighten a little girl, for it was very sweet and tender, but for one second she thought her new friend was going to cry. She put both arms around his neck and replied softly, with the ex qufsite maternal cadences her voice had taken on In her' first words to him when she entered the car: "I'll bo your own little girl, and I'll take care of you too. You know, you sr.ld I could." Dr. Van Va'kenberg turned to the nurse. "I shall go with you to her cousin's Trotn the train," he announced. "I'm ready to give them all the proofs they need that I'm a suitable guardian for the child, but," he added, with a touch of the boyishness that had never left him, "I want this matter settled now." The long train pounded its way into the station at Chicago, and Dr. Van Valkenberg summoned a porter. "Take care of these things," he said, indicating both •eta of possessions with a •weep of hia •rm. "I shall have my hands full with my little daughter."
