WNtJ S«rvl8« SYNOPSIS "CHAPTBft 1—Renewing ft childish attachment, Ernestine Briceland, of a Wealthy Chicago fiimlljr. it. trertiena- otiBly attracted by Will Todd, youthful newspaper artist, eon of a not particularly well-to-do carpenter. Her sister Lillian, more of the conventional type, and aware of the attitude their father would take toward his daughter'* marriage to an Impecunious youth, urges Ernestine to end the affair, but the latter, capable of a pas- slonnto attachment, and realizing that In Will Todd she has found her affinity, refusea. CHAPTER II—The love-making progresses swiftly, and anally, largely because of Ernestine's urging, they make a "runaway" marriage. Brlce- land la Infuriated but helpless, Ernestine being of age, and after a stormy scene the girl, with her husband, leaves her parents' home. Lorlng Hamilton, wealthy young lawyer, long Lillian's suitor, wins her consent to be his wife. ~ ",We might Just as well go today, and find a place to board until we can get an apartment," said Ernestine, looking very young and earnest. "I'll get my trunk from mamma's, as soon/ as we have found a residence. It's awfully good of you to want us here, but the house Is small, and mother Is really not wull enough to have us." , Mrs. Todd snld nothing, and Ernestine felt that she had never seen so dispirited a creature. , ' "If we get near town, mom," Will said, "we can save money on carfare. I know a place on Erie street one of the fellows told me about, where you can get; a room and two'meals, nt a reasonable price, and it's' In walking distance of the office. Anyhow, I think we ought to live alone." "That's right," said Will's father. "It's the only way for young married people. If you need any money when ,you go to fixing up a flat I can lend you a little. I always have a few hundred dollars tucked away for emergencies," he explained to Ernestine. "I can let Will borrow,, without Interest, If .be needs It I own a house on Troy,street that you could have if It wasn't leased. But the location is not good for you." '-"We'll manage," said Will conn- • dently,' and Ernestine admired him. .They exchanged bright 'looks, and Mr. Todd paid heartily: -'"Well, come and visit us sometimes, - ' 4 "You Are Lovely," He Protested as Though She Had Denied It, 1 tt was soon time for them to go. Ernestine, In her squirrel coat ] and scarlet hat, bade her new rela'tives -goodly. She felt that there were tears in the air, realized a little that these people were losing WHl more definitely than she would ever be lost to her family. He was their only son, but they said good-by to him with quiet dignity. Ernestine admired their restraint, and was grateful' for their good taste. • They offered neither advice nor counsel, but allowed the young ones to go forth about their own affairs. The house on Erie street brought to Ernestine her first shoab of reality, It was an ancient, smoke- blackened dwelling place, not far from the lake, Across the street.from the bouse a five-story machine shop reverberated with activity. A secret- looking brown-stone house, with drawn blinds, stood on the corner. Ernestine felt that the apartment they spoke of go glibly was not so near. A sense of the Irrevocable nature of the step she had taken swept over her, Sho von now Will's, and, as he had sold to her father, his roof was her roof. Hta home was hers, and this was it. She had definitely abandoned her old way of llfo and set her feet in a strange country. The future was as remote from the past as though she were' following him to a great distance. Hand in hand they run up the stone gtaSrV and met a small plump woman, called Mrs. Bennett, with whom Will discussed rooms 'and prices, while Ernestine stood to one side, burnlngly conscious of the gold band on her third finger, ' JBrneatlne was top gopd a 6 P OJ1|t '" bemoan their conspicuous lack of money, Fresh from the rigors of a flns Iphojoi, H was not bard for Uer Jo accujfcon) herself to simplicity.

CHAPTER IV A Patty at Pastano's Mr, Eoole was having a party for Ernestine and Will, and, according to prearrangeraent, Ernestine slipped downstairs ahead of time to show herself to Mrs. Bennett She could not help but be proud of the (evening dress mamma nad given her for Christ* tnas, and which, she had not worn before. The yellow chiffon lay about her slender Hm'bs delicately, subtly. She appreciated the illusive cobwebby hose that had como with the dress and the gold cloth Slippers. The string of small real pearls which had come to her from her Grandmother Langley's estate, the pearl ring which daddy had given her to match her necklace, were the last touches of a perfect toilet. Will had appreciated her, this evening, his One eyes glowing with ad-- miration, "lou are lovely," he protested) as though she hod denied tt, and she swung herself about In the narrow room and gave htm a languishing, mocking look. But she went down the carpeted stairs In a glow, her gi]ulrrel coat over her arm. Mrs. Bennett got up with an admiring exclamation when Ernestine closed the door behind her. The latter advanced to the center of the room and pirouetted on her toes. A little, round, weary body, with tired eyes beneath a fringe of gray hnlr, Mrs. Bennett)had long outworn personal egotism and was generous with praise and sympathy. • : "Youth Is the time to IJve, darling," she said to Ernestine. "My life is an old story, but you are young and glow- Ing, and things are happening to you. It Is better for you to have your hard times now, and grow old rich and strong, than to have the hardships In old age, as I have had them.. But tell me, aren't you excited to be having a birthday party given In your hon'or by a great cartoonist?" r Ernestine laughed. "He only wants to be nice to Will. He thinks It will please Will, and of course it does." Mrs. Bennett maintained a discreet silence, and Ernestine turned to the mirror over a chest of drawers and looked at her'reflection, running her hands over her sleek soft hair. She was a little thinner than she .had been when she was married, and her eyes were big and dark In the delicate whiteness of her face. She was lovely with a breath-taking quality, her face shining with an inner spiritual excitement It seemed to her as she stared th'at she looked too happy, too, thrilled for every-day'nse,""" She must learn 'to dissemble. • ' • "Sometimes, darling," Mrs. Bennett chlded Ernestine gently, "I think you fail to realize what an effect you have on the people here—on the men. Tou are so different from the other girls these boys know. You bloom. You wear the face of love. It's hard on them. ,1 want'yon te be very wise with Mr. Poole. It would-be an easy thing for you to disrupt his friendship with Will. Will admires him, and his patronage means so much, Just now." "Will won't be Jealous of any attention I pay to Mr. Poole, or that he pays to mo," Ernestine said indifferently, "if that's what you meon. It won't hurt Mr. Poole to admire me. He's a nice old man, and he loves to admire women, and men, too, as far as that goes. It's part of his big heart, Will says. Anyhow, Will wouldn't be Jealous of me—now." Her small faco was so shining that Mrs. Bennett threw her advising Instinct away with a gesture and came and kissed her young friend. "Have a lovely' time, darling. Pas- tano's has the distinction of being the very toughest place in all Chicago. It is beautiful, and not so dangerous as Mr. Pastano likes people to think. He is really very careful about the police. And. then, too, you will be with Mr. Poole, who is a close friend of Ruby." Will was at the door, grinning at them, his mobile mouth twisted into a kind of sardonic look that he wore at times, and that made him like his father. Ho had a great deal of poise, Ernestine often thought, conslderipg his youth, and scanty advantages. Marriage had changed him very little. He was, perhaps, somewhat more Inflammable, but he took Ernestine and the life with her most naturally and without self-consciousness. They went on to Pastano's, entered an unmarked doorway and climbed broad wooden steps with double doors at the top which opened up9n light, music, heat and the sound of happy voices. The big room was airy, Its excellent ventilation a surprise to Ernestine, and an Important factor in every one's pleasure and good appetite. Mr, Poole came to meet them, and Ernestine gave him her band and her nicest schoolgirl smile. She wished Mrs, Bennett had not said anything to her nbout this man. She did not have to heed any warnings except those her husband gave her! Following Mr. P.oolo among the; tables, Ernestine thought about the many things Will had told her of this man, until she felt that she knew him perfectly. Hii remarkable gifts, his value to his paper, his carelessness of himself, his small vanities and prejudices, his indolence and drunkenness and MB great charm, she knew. He was as natural and straightforward with every one as a child with other cblidrep. Yet h« possessed also the authority and autocratic manner of the man of established reputation. lie drew Ernestine's hand within the curve of his arm, and led her to a table, r8|srv«d fo? thelfc party..

"For several years I suffered dreadfully from stomach and bowel troubles," said Mrs. Andrew Caperonis, 1007 South Third Street, West, Cedar Rapids. "I had little or no appetite and what I forced myself to eat caused pain and misery. I was restless and unable to sleep.

I tried a good many medicines but none of them gave me more than temporary relief. v "A friend praised Konjola so highly that I gave this medicine a trial. Almost immediately my food began to digest better and my bowel action became mo.*e natural. I could feel myself gaining strength. Today, after taking four bottles, I feel better than I have for years. Our home will never be without Konjola and I wish others to know what this medicine did for me." Konjola is that kind of a medicine, quick and thorough. It is at its best in stubborn cases and even infants can take it. From six to eight bottles are recommended as a complete treatment. Konjola Is sold in Algona, Iowa, at E. W. Lusby drug store, and by all the best druggists in all towns throughout this entire section—Adv. 3 CITY PROFESSIONAL DIRECTORY. ATTORNEYS AT LAW T. P.
