Prices were a bit hesitant after a fairly ctive opening. Dealings tapered for a while but sizeable orders in the. second hour, when turnover was 500,000 shares, put the list on the forward push. Profit taking then arrived and the pace slowed. Low-quoted utilities came out in large blocks with small fractional improvement.

Dec. 19 — (ff"i — Feed grains weakened on the board of trade today in sympathy with a further decline in hog values and easiness in cash markets. Trading was light and losses were not large.

THE STORY: At a meeting of Lhe Daughters of the Old Dominion, Rose Cameron is chosen to represent the Blakesville chapter at the annual convocation in Washington, D. C. Miss Amy is delighted. Rose doesn't want to go. XIV Jeff straightened in his chair. It was no use. He was absolutely no good, and a blasted dumb - bell for working so hard. Every night for a week—and all his stuff perfectly foul. Try as he would, he seemed unable to do the hillbilly sketches he'd talked about to Sidney; instead, hs invariably wound up with another of these caricatures of his father. He had dciens of the damned things, done at raridom, almost without volition—now wadded balls of paper, they littered the room, nictures of Paoa in his gray uniform, many different poses. "Must be a brain quirk," thought Jeff. "A psycholigical something." Then there was Papa, more de Stooping over the newest picture, I Inched than ever, an abstraction so said, stitching and smiling, "be cause the way Rose looks is so important. The convocation may moke a difference in Rose's whole future!" Sidney knew what was meant by that. At the Washington receptions and balls, Rose would be meeting numbers of young men, such right young men, probably all with the Old ominion background. Who could foresee the outcome? But what about Rose? She didn't want to go to Washington, Sidney knew it now, Rose was the kind of person who could smile over ths tailgate of a tumbrel, but there was no heart behind her smile, as she stood \c.f.g hours for fittings, whipped seams, ran strips of velvet and giosgrain through eyelets. Something was definitely amiss with times a week he went to the hotel to see Mr. Milgrim. And why was he interested in Papa? Ingenious as she was, Sidney couldn't think that Papa was ever interesting to anybody so he must be up to something. But, What? The tag ends of Sidney's thinking had to do with herself. Every spring for several years, she had made it a practice to fall in love —not so deeply that it hurt, but just for the fun of it—and this year too she had rather counted on an interlude of innocent flirtation, per haps with Basil, since he was right at hand and she was sure of his reflexes. Indeed, she had exerted some effort to see Basil in a romantic light; saturating herself with violet cologne, she sat. for hours before the gramophone listening to a tenor voice singing the "Bedouin 1 Love Song." But it wouldn't.'work. The idea of Basil in a turban and one of those flowing white robes was just too "I'm afraid," 'thought" "Ace Lalshaw cured me t/ot gbodJ Not that she had actually carea a fig for Ace ..... It was mighty funny, though, about him; and £He sometimes had the notion She would meet hlrh" again •.. '..'

Jeff groaned, and slammed down his pencil. It was as she dusted that Sidney came upon the many discarded pic- ures of Papa. They were all clever, especially the seated poses (she always thought o f Pp"i as sitting( and the one with the "I chew Spunky Mule" button made her laugh outright. Those pictures not too crumpled she carried to her own room, gradually accumulating a pile of them. They really should be submitted in that contest — but they wouldn't be, and she began to think nothing would be, for Jeff only dallied with the hillbilly cartoons.

If the spring wasn't all it should have been, the fault ("dear Brutus") was not in Sidney's stars, but to herself, she thought, and all the Camerons.

Sidney had tried to diagnose the change in Pana. It couldn't be due to flashes of literary inspiration, for he had shelved his precious manuscript as if for good. And he was snrrjrisingl'y brisk, almost breezy, although his briskness was for himself only. Briefly Sidney had wondered if a lardy romance might have beset Papa.
