Crowded Life Life Is so short that one scarcely baa time to think what Is the wisest thing to do. , Bright Colors Keep the Children on Safe Side Dress children In- bright-colored outer garments In wintertime for their own safety, says the bureau of home economics of the United States Department of Agriculture. While children should not play In dty thoroughfares or even on country highways, because of automobiles, there are occasions when they have to cross streets or when they try to retrieve balls or other playthings from the path of traffic. They must be taught caution, but they can be further protected by dressing (hem la bright, conspicuous colors which motorists can see from a distance. Children like to wear gay colors. Those of nursery-school age choose them by preference. Those a little older are governed to some extent by what others wear, so It may be necessary for mothers to get together and "create" a rogue for vivid colon In outer garments.

SHIFTS^; SSAN™* SYNOPSIS The future of the youthful and eornety "Wldder" Mafata Hotfa la' a conversational tlt-blt among housewives of Wilton. Eligible bachelor* and widowers also are Interested. Marcla'a married life has been unhappy, but she Is lonely at times, and has Invited her late husband's niece, Sylvia Hayden, whom she has never seen, to visit her. A stranger, on the verge of exhaustion, finds his way to Marcla's home. He has her hide a package containing jewelry. Ellsha Wlnslow, the sheriff, brings news of a Jewel robbery nearby. The stranger gives his name as Stanley Heath. Marcla, though uneasy, Is unwilling to believe him a thief. Sylvia, by chance, discovers the Jewels, and Is convinced that Heath la a robber. She realizes that Marcla must have hidden the Jewels. De- cldlqg to be silent, sho puts them back In their hiding place. Marcla realizes that she has altogether too deep an Interest In her guest, but Is powerless to overcome It. Heath wires "Mrs. 8. C. Heath," New York, that he Is safe. He also orders a man named Currier to come at once. Sylvia, In her room, bedecks herself with the Jewels. At Marcla's approach she hides them there. Heath asks Marcla to bring him the Jewels. They are gone. Heath makes light of the losa. CHAPTER V—Continued To her surprise, It was a manly. Intelligent letter, filled with town gossip, to be sure, yet written In delightfully Interesting fashion. "Your Mr. Fuller sounds charm- Ing," she said as she gave It back. "Oh, Hortie Is all right—In some ways." Patronizingly slipping the letter into her pocket, Sylvia shifted the subject Nevertheless, a betraying flush colored her cheeks. "Now, we must start dinner, mustn't we? Don't you want to ask Mr. Heath which 'jay he prefers his eggs—poached or boiled? And Marcla, while you're there, do put on a pair of fresh pillow-slips on his pillows. The ones he has are frightfully tumbled. I meant to do It thla morning." As the door closed behind the elder woman, artful young Sylvia smiled. "There I That will keep her busy for a few moments at least I know those pillow-cases. They flt like a snake's skin and are terribly hard to get off and on." She crept Into the hall and listened. Yes, Marcla and Stanley Heath were talking. She could hear her aunt's gentle insistence and the man's protests. That was all she wished to know. The pillow-cases were In process of being taken off. Up the stairs flew Sylvia, to return a second later, the jewel case swathed In Its loose wrappings. An anxious Interval elapsed before the brick was pried out and the case slipped beneath It. Nevertheless the feat was accomplished, and triumphant, relieved, happy Sylvia set about preparing dinner. What a long while Marcla was staying upstairs! Why, one could change a dozen pillow-cases In this time. "I guess they are tighter than I remembered them. I needn't have rushed as I did," pouted Sylvia. "What can she be doing?" When at last Marcla returned, something evidently was wrong. "What's the matter?" demanded Sylvia. "Is Mr. Heath worse?" 'Worse? No Indeed. What made you think so?" "You look fussed." "Do I? 'You'd be fussed had you wrestled with those pillow-slips as I have," was the reply. "Either the pillows have swelled or the cases have shrunk frightfully. Well, they are on now, anyway." "Come and get dinner then. I'm starved. My walk has made me lungry aa a bear. You must go out this afternoon, Marcla. It Is a glorious day and you need to be pepped up." To her surprise, Marcla demurred. 'Thank you, dear, but I think I won't go out today. I'd rather alt here and read. I'm too tired to go out." "The air would rest you." "Not today, dear," Marcla said with finality. "I have some mend- ng to do and lots of other little :hlngs that I have been saving up for a long time. Since I prefer to stay, why don't you tramp up the shore and see 'My Unknown Lady"? She la beautiful and you haven't seen her yet." "Well, If your mind Is made up, : suppose there IB no use In my trying to change It I would like to Bee the boat." 'I'm sure you would, stay as long aa you like. There will be nothing to do here. Mr. Heath will >robably Bleep and In the meantime : shall get my tewing done." As Marcla spoke th» word*, her mind was busy. So Sylvia had not stirred from the kitchen on the previous afternoon! Tfi.e .theft of the Jewels must, then, have taken place during the night Nevertheless, she was puzzled, for she had no memory of finding anything awry when she came down at sunrise to lay the fire. When had the gems been taken, and who had taken them? No wonder she craved solitude to ponder the conundrum! This, however, was not the paramount reason she de- gired to be alone. Despite the enigma of the Jewels; despite the mystery surrounding Stanley Heath, deep In her heart something that would not be stilled was singing—singing I CHAPTER VI I N THR meantime, the throng of neighbors Sylvia had precipitately left In the village post office had received their mall and reached that anticipated Interval for gossip which never failed to be stimulating. Zenas Henry was speaking: "A mighty fine little girl—that Sylvia," commented he. "A high stepper I We'd oughter tie her down to Wilton so'st she won't go back west She's too pretty to be spared from the Cape." "I flgger you'd have trouble keepln' her here," rejoined Sam Nlckerson, the postmaster. "She's got a beau In her home town. Had a letter an" a box of candy from him today. Same wrltln" an' same postmark on both of 'em, I noticed." "Didn't by any chance see the name, did you, Silas?" Eleazer Crocker Inquired. "Wai, come to think of It, J.t did catch my eye. You know how such things will. Fuller, he's called, Horatio Fuller." "Horatio Fuller, eh?" Eleazer repeated. "Kinder high soundin 1 . Wonder who be is? From Alton City, you say." Silas nodded. "That was the address." "Never beard of the place," Capt. Benjamin Todd put In. Thoughtfully Zenas Henry stroked his chin. "If everybody knew where all the blasted places in the country were, what use would they have for maps? 'Twould put the map- mnkln' folks clean out of business. Sny, Ephraim," Inspired by a bright idea, "you're the mall carrier. You'd oughter be primed on the location of places. Where's Alton City?" "Alton City? Hanged if I know. To hear you talk, anybody'd think 'twas my Job to tote round the country dellverin' letters In person at the doors of every house in the United States." "But you must have some notion "bout geography. Ain't you got no pocket atlas nor nothln'T" "I may have a small map somewhere; I carry most everything," Ephraim grinned. With deliberation, he began to disgorge upon the counter the contents of his many pockets. "Ought to be In my breast pocket," thrusting his hand inside his pea-coat. "My eye! If I ain't forgot that telegram 1" he abruptly exclaimed. "The station-master at Sawyer Falls gave It to me when he handed out the mall. It clean went out of my mind. It's for that chap Heath who's stayln" over at The Wldder's.'" "Hadn't you been wool-gatherln/ you might 'a 1 given It to Sylvia to take back with her. She was here only a little while ago," Silas Nlck- erson said. "I know It." "S'pose I was to take It over," Ellsha Wlnslow suggested eagerly. "I'm wlllln' to." "Fur's that goes, I can carry It," Capt. Phlneas Taylor piped. "Now, there's no use in all you fellers volunteerln'," Eleazer Crocker asserted. "I'm goln 1 straight over to Marcia's, as it happens, soon's I've et my dinner, an' I'll take the telegram." With an air of authority, he held out his hand. The crowd fell back. Early afternoon found Marcla alone in the Homestead sitting room. Sylvia had gone up the beach. Stanley Heath was asleep; and at last the delicious Interval of solitude which the woman coveted was here. She could not work. Try as she would, her mind wandered off Into byways too fascinating to be r* sisted—byways which no matter how remote their windings, Invariably led her back to Stanley Heath. la retrospect she lived over again •ver/ incident, every word, look that had passed between them until she came to the bnrrler O f the unknown which her fancy bridged with Intricate rnlnbow- hued imaginings. She twisted pos slble explanations this way and that and would contentedly have continued the pastime had not El eazer Crocker knocked at the door Bleazer could not have chosen a more Inopportune moment to draa her back to earth. With a frown and a deep sigh, Marcla went reluctantly to let him In. "Wai, now ain't It nice to flnd you by yourself!" was his greet- Ing. "The kitchen looks cozy as can be. Where was you settln'?" "1 was In the front room, but perhaps we batter drop down here so I can listen In case Mr, Heath should call." "Anywhere you say. Wherever you are suits me." "I'll Just run In and put the screen round the fire and get my mending," Marcla replied « trifle uneasily. "I'll be right back." Left to himself, Eleazer smiled a smile of satisfaction. The kitchen was warm, Marcla was alone and apparently not busy. Could circumstances be more pro^ pltlouaT Fortune certainly was with him. Today, this very afternoon, he would take his future in his hands and put to her the question he had so often determined to put. When Marcla came back he was primed and ready to begin his declaration. "Weather's been fine, ain't It 7" he started out Marcla took up her sewing. "Do you think soT" questioned she, raising her brows, "Seems to me we've had lots of rain and fog." "Wai, yes, now you mention It I do recall a few thick days. Still, spring Is comin'." "I'll like to shingle the. south ell this spring," announced Marcla, giving a disconcertingly practical twist to the conversation. "How many shingles do you suppose it would take?" Eleazer frowned. The dialogue was not proceeding along the lines he had mapped out. "I'd have to reckon that out It's a good notion, though, to make the ell tight. That's what the birds are doln'. They're gettln' their nests built an' kinder pickln" out their mates." "I did not realize you were BO much Interested In birds, Eleazer," Marcla exclaimed. "I have a fine bird book I must lend you. It's In the other room. I'll fetch it." Springing up, she disappeared. "Drat It!" murmured Eleazer. "Could anything be more exasper- When Marcla Cams Back He Was Primed and Ready to Begin His Declaration. atln'? An' me neither knowln' nor carln' a hang whether a bird's a robin or a sparrow." He wandered to the window. "Oh, heavens, who's this comin'? If it ain't 'Llsh Winslow! Now what In thunder does he want, buttln' in?" Eleazer threw open the door. Before he could speak, however, Ellsha puffed and out of breath bawled: "Where in the name of goodness did you put the engine-house key, Eleazer 1 Whlpple's hen house Is afire, an' we've hunted high and low for It." "My soul an' body," Eleazer gasped. "I clean forgot to leav$ It. Must be In my pocket." Wildly he began to search. ••You're a fine head of the flre department, you are!" roared Ellsha. "If you'd put your mind on town business 'stead of on Marcla Howe, we'd all be better off. Traipsing over here to see her In the middle of the day, palmln' off that telegram as an excuse. You better go straight back to the village fast as you can leg it an' carry the key with you," went on the accuser. "Don't wait lor nothin'. I'll explain to Marcia." "But I've got to see her. I've got to speak to her private," protested the wretched official "I want to give her somethin'." "Give It to me. I'll hand It to her." Ellsha's extended palm WM not to be Ignored, "This—this—telegram," quavered Bleazer.
