SOW CO OK WITH THE STORT CHAPTER X TIER eyes went past th« orchld- asd-blaek bathtnb In the window to th» wide sunlit street beyond. Wceo Mr. Redfera had con ceired the Idea ot lowering his rent by snoring from the west side of the rirer to this small place on tbe east side be ~.d said that it would bo much pleasanter for Miss Fenwick. They wer« closer to the ·treet. cere, aad she could look out of the window and watch the people passing and the traffic all da? long. He had meant it kindly. Be knew, as Ann knew, how light her duties were: a few letters and bills to be seat, a few Items to be ported in the books, an occasional telephone call to answer, pay rolls to be made out on Saturdays, and nothing more to b» dote except for a scurrying day or two around the first of each month. SInw Mr. Redfern managed to keep his ailing business alive only by constant personal ministrations. Ann was alone most of the time in the office. She read library books: novels of the lighter, neatly med!- ocr* sort; flctionlzed biography, or a newly popular philosophy; poetry, sometimes, if the bindings were clean and pretty, though poetry often made her sad. She wrote letter* to the few people she knew who did not lire in Portland--letters so long that the recipients felt they required a "real letter" !n answer (Ann Fenwick writes such dandy letters') and so, often, never answered them at all. She sewed a little, but guiltily--it didn't look well to be sewing ic an offlce. During the season she went to a nearby market and bought peas and string beans and prepared them surreptitiously, and with newspapers ready to hand for coverings, to carry home- ready to be cooked for the evening meaL Once, for a few happy months, she had attempted short-story writing; but the following flood of fat envelopes bearing rejections had drowned her courage, or her conceit, and dissolved her ambitions for authorship. She had not told Phil about the short stories. She had been afraid that he -^ould tease her. as he had teased her about the graphology, the French in six easy A r o harm in trying to pick them up De Armount thought. He lighted | another cigaret and strolled acroK I the strtcl. · lessons, the cross word puzzles Her defense had been that they killed time. It was hard for Phil to understand why a person who had nothing to do all day but kill time should so often complain of weariness in tho e\enine. and vet. un- doubtedlv. Da\id too was tired after the encounter with Goliath. · * · A MESSENGER bov riding along out there turned his bicycle j sharply and dismounted at the curb. | Ann's breath caught, but only for the moment it took tho boy to discover the number ncit door. Phil sometimes had sent flowers tc her at the offlce. Phil, only last year, had said that he hadn't nerve to telephone to her after the way he had acted, and had sent a long letter by messenger Phil once . . . Ann liked her yesterdays, and she bad fallen Into the quaint habit of plajinsc with them In her mind, j of arranging and rearrancing them | as boys arrange their stamp collec- J tions Phil s failure to call her to- I day was not so noticeable, put be-1 side- the evening h» had left her house at 10 o'clock and telephoned from a drug store 20 minutes later Nothing had been wrong that evening; he had wished to hear her vole* again, to b* certain that she really was. Phil's surliness last evening did not count for much beside the time she had scalded her hands, and Phil had gone mad. and telephoned to a doctor, and declared that he could cot live in a world where Ann could be hurt. The surliness and the failure to call her. both together, grew small, pot beside those two weeks when she had been ill in bed and * box of flowers with a package of note* to be read every half boor all day had arrived each morning--and then. Phil's cheek wet against hers because he was so happy the first afternoon she was allowed to come d wnstalrs. She looked again at the clock. Five o'clock. Suppose he did not telephone at all? Suppose «he went home, and began to wait there for his message, and it didn't come? Suppose she waited all evening-and all tomorrow, and all tomorrow evening? Suppose she were to begin now. at five o'clock on the fifth day of April, to wait all her life long for a message from Phil that never came'' The telephone bell rang She snatched the receiver and paused to moisten her lips before she spoke. "Hello." "Ann, ancel . . '" Cecily's voice trilled higher and sweeter than usual. · · · TPHE youth known for the present as Earl DeArmount stood, bat aslant and "tick suspended from his arm, outside the Happy Hour Pool Room, resting rather than waiting Standing so. he made no particularly attractive picture, though he was young and tall, slender and well formed. A hasty opinion might have granted him good looks; but a more discriminating observer would have remarked that the dark bright eyei were set too closely together untltr the overhanging brow, and had this same observer been recent"' to a zoo ho .might hare noted here an anthropoldal similitude.

Further descrlp tion of Earl DeArmount is difficult, because ono the first thing about him. He did not geLerate an impression of extreme- trustworthiness, nor ot rectitude: but, probably, he was not blackly villainous-so few persons are. He looked at the- watch on his wrist and found the time past four o'clock. He raised Ills eyes and did a little reading. Stark realism--J O Bartz, Chiropractor. V. Andrew Carlsca. Dentist. He finished on a lighter and more romantic vein. Hung Chin See. Chop Suev Parlor, and lowered his eea again to the street. A block away, by the window of Peggy-Louise's Beauty Shoppe. stood tbe fat little kid who had been in tbe restaurant :ast night, acd with her was the pretty girl friend. Earl had no interest in the fat little kid, though he had gathered from her manner in the restaurant that she would probably stand for a pick-up. The girl friend, a peach, probably would not stand for a pick-up; but she might come along with her friend if he managed it right. No harm in trying. He lighted another cigaret and strolled across tbe street. Mary-Fraaees glanced slantwise from under her long curling lashea. "He is coming," she breathed. "He is coming." * · · ·TPENNYSOX did it more elaborately but. perchance, with ao more genuine emotion. At least. Mary-Frances'* cheeks were hot. and her hands were cold; her knees were ricketr; her throat had cramped, and her stomach was impoverished aad wavering. "You can't." said Ermtntrude, in a sort of sick squeal. "You just positively can't!" It la to be feared that the urgent need of any allv. rather than any swift surge of affection, caused Mary-Frances to swerve closer to Ermintrude acd put a tightening arm about her waist. "Darling," she murmured. "I got to. I Just got to Don't you realize, can't you understand that if I were cruel to him now. and proved to be nothing but a mere fickle coquette and everything, ino lives would be ruined'" "Mai be not." urged Ermintrnde. iitrai.:»dly optimistic, 'maybe it might just turn out to be one ot these terrible mistakes afterwards, anywaj Let's--let's run or something. Oh. please! It's Just terrible It's--it's not refined " "Ermlctrnde-" (he was so close now that the tap of his stick on the walk was the loudest sound In the world), "if you don t help me. if you don't stay by me. like you prom- i=ed last night, a d bo my true friend and everything--then--then we just part forever right now, and that's all " "Hello, girls." said Earl DeAr- mount Ermintrude's chin went high In the air; but Mary-Frances's chin turned slowly (nonchalance savored with winsom°ness). came to rest just above the blue jersey shoulder nearest Mr DeArmount, and. as she undoubtedlj would have phrased It. she lifted timid eyes to meet his manly gaze "How about some Ice cream?" said Earl DeArmount. He had seemed to t · speaking to Ermin- trude, so perhaps she was within her rights when she answered, "No. We couldn't possibly." "I ought to apologize." he beguiled "As a matter of fact. If I'd stopped to think I'd of knowa that jou girls wouldn't, mavbe. stand for a fresh guy horsing in like this --see? But as a matter of fact I'm a stranger here myself--see"--and I just wanted to be friendlv.

But there the similarity ends. One may be issued by a strong, experienced organization; another by a company of limited years and resources. One may be backed by a nation-wide organization; another by a company operating in a small area. So, when you buy Automobile Insurance it is important that you consider not only the provisions and limits of your policy but the financial strength and scope of the COMPANY BACK OF IT. JETNA OFFERS SOUND INSURANCE PROTECTION, YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND A PERSONAL, FRIENDLY CLAIM SERVICE WHEREVER YOUR CAR TAKES YOU.
