The Upper Des Moines-Republican, July 30,1930 Beggars CAN , Choose Margaret Weymouth Jackson ht by Bobba-Mefrlll Co. WMTJ fiMvte* SYNOPSIS . CHAPTER IV—John Poole. Wtirs best friend, successful though dissipated artist, gives a birthday party for Ernestine at Ruby Pnstano's bo- hetnlah resort on the fringe of the underworld, Pastano, notorious as a bootlegger and gang leader, Irritates Ernestine by his criticism of Will for bringing his young wife to such a place. Appealing to Will to take her home, he delegates the task to a friend, Tommy Tucker, explaining that he must see Poole, who has drank too much, to his home. Ernestine Is hurt and Indignant. The situation Is saved by the appearance of Loring and Lillian, who had heard of her whereabouts and with whom she leaves the party. CHAPTER V—Reproaching him for leaving her "unprotected" In'his car. Ing for Poole, Will takes an attitude ' which awakens Ernestine to the realities of her new life. She Is conscious of approaching motherhood, and in anticipation of the event opens a small savings account. ^Continued from Itw* Wednesday.) He kissed her again, and they said goodby. The conversation had washed au-ny a little of her resentment and made her -feel better. She had a strong desire to cling to her own family, opposed by the resolution she had taken to harden her heart against them all. She thought of mamma and Lillian and Lorlng, come In-taring's coupe, standing quiet and In a little tight knot at the funeral. She had taken her own stand by Will and Mrs. Schluss, and Mr. and Mrs. Pryor. The day after the funeral when Ernestine, with one of Mrs. Todd's aprons pinned over an old silk dress, was experimenting with a broom, Mr. Pastano came, and with him a huge old lady with slow black eyes and a face so round and kind that Ernestine's heart went out to her. Mr. I'astano had brought somo potted plants, which seemed fresh and beautiful after the scent of decay that had come with the funeral sets. "These nre for Willie's mamma," Madame I J nstano said haltingly. "We come to make consolation call— \o bring you friendship. As the plants grow, sp grows the new Heaven." Ernestine yielded to Impulse, 1 was enfolded on the soft and luxurious bosom of Madame Pastano and kissed her smooth clteejc. .How, strjange ~a11<~of 'her haughty-Sir* gone, that site Pastano, with his slow bis mottled dark eyes, ' < f "When Willie's m>mma !s better, you will come to visit us?" the "old lady asked, nnd Ernestine called her husband Willie for days afterward. She promised to come. < Will was worried about money, and Ernestine tried to spend as little as possible. Mr. Todd's lodge Insurance had paid for ills funeral and left a small balance, which wus soon eaten up by the heavy expenses of the mother's illness. Will asked for a raise and got five dollars. At length he was forced to borrow from Mr. Poole, although Ernestine told him she could get money from her father. "Money!" he burst out passionately. "I don't want any Briceland money! We wanted something real from them. Money's all they have." "You'll have to increase your earnings, Will." "It takes time. And I Intend to do It on my own Job, not In your father's office. Your folks must understand -that." Housewives Need Not be Mechanics-*- To have plenty of pure ice, and automatic refrigeration does not take the place of ice. We deliver daily to every street in town, and are in a position to make special emergency calls.

Algona Ice Cream and Candy Factory « fbflne IKSi says beggars can't choose," slie snid. "This beggar chooses," he warned her. Will's mother began to mend a little, the third or fourth Week, although she tvas desperately ill. One day she asked Ernestine how they Were mahag- tog, and Ernestine confessed that they had had to borrow. "The Troy Street house Is In my name," said Mrs. Todd. "Tell Will the deed and all are In his father's box—tell him to have some real estate office sell it I'll sign the deed—It will be more than enough for my Illness." "But, mother, when you are better, you will need your money." "I'll not be better. And I'd like to have the nurse all the time now." So the house was sold, and the few thousand dollars they got for it certainly made a remarkable difference. The doctor brought them a resident nurse. Ernestine nnd Will agreed that they should spend Mrs. Todd's money only for the expense of her Illness. On the day that Lillian was married Mrs. Todd was able to sit up, nnd Will consented to go to the wedding. The church was filled with flowers—the bridesmaids made a rainbow—Ernestine had pleaded the excuse of mourning for taking no part In the ceremony. The pews were filled with old familiar faces—the ushers were young men Ernestine and Lillian had known always. Everything was very beautiful and formal, and Ernestine realized that mamma would have liked such a wedding for her. She was glad afterward, that she had gone, for the weeks nnd months Just passed had been so hard for her that the beauty of her own romance Imd become n little dimmed. But when she heard the marriage ceremony again, when she stood by Will and watched her sister marry Loring Hamilton, she remembered every word and every kiss of her own marriage day— Its storms ,and turmoil, and she looked at Will, at his clear strong face, at his lean bony body in the shabby suit, at tbe big square hands resting on Ills knees, and the richness of her love for him welled up In her like n great tide that would and must carry everything before It. CHAPTER VII The Baby for Passenger Lillian was In Europe. Mamma and papa and grandmother had gone to Langley lake for the month of August. Ernestine entered into a period of waiting, of passing through days of unreality nnd nights of patient endurance. Sometimes, waking after she had slept, she looked about the walls of the little room with a feeling of enormous surprise. Was this really* she, Ernestine Briceland, in this dim room, with the curtains pinned back "to admit' any vagranjt breeze, listening with her heart suddenly quick in'the still night tor ber husband's footsteps? Mr.- Poole cade often to visit them. Ernestine began, to, look, forjiltn^for " "" chauffeur,', wag ofteV'at theTdoor.i , One day' as Ernestine 'sat reading aloud, Will's mother laid; a swollen, creased hand out over the-book, and Ernestine, looking up at her, smiled quickly and kissed her. "What Is it, mother?" They talked'a/little about?the com- ng baby, and the plans Ernestine and Will had made. "It is hard for your mother," snid Mrs. Todd, with a smile. "I think perhaps it is as great a mistake to je stiffnecked about favors as it Is je greedy." "Perhaps," admitted Ernestine. "It s hard to be exactly balanced. One must choose n direction In which to lean." They fell Into a friendly silence. After n little,' Will's mother pressed Ernestine's hand. 'About Will—" she said and hesitated, nnd Ernestine's heart beat a ittle faster. "Be patient with him. He hasn't found himself yet. But he will. You ore more mature than Will. Children will Increase the distance between vour wisdom nnd his childishness, [ust love him. He'll come home.' 1 Ernestine knew no answer, hut the words fell into her heart as though here were more significance to thuin hnn their stereotyped Importune.!. For an hour or more they snt In silence, Ernestine dreaming of, Mrs. Todd remembering, Will! Mrs. Todd lived just long enough to see her grandson and to kiss Ills poppy sHk cheek. Will laid him in the hul- ow of her arms, but after u moment, with a word of entreaty, she asked Urn to take the baby away. He <lid so and, calling the nurse to his mother, who seemed to be swooning, he took he little one back to Ernestine. And so the parlor of the little house tvus a bower for death. The gray loflin, the room filled with (lowers, he worn-out shell of the woman Ernestine had understood so little. Will ucepted his mother's death with nore philosophy than Ernestine had expected of him. • The long waiting, he clinging, had been bonier for him him the llnal separation. Besides, the new little life cuddled against Ernes- Ine's heart was so much more than any loss—it was such un appropriate compensation. The baby tfud finally established Ernestine among her new neighbors. Slowly but surely they hud coine to •espect her, and now, with Peter In tor arms, with her house clean and by ler own efforts, she found Mrs. Schluss and Mrs- Pryor and others howlng her real affection, which she appreciated and respected in full. Ernestine felt that ill! sacrifice wus justified, and they entered into a new phase of life, in their qwn small home, Will at the oars, Ernestine at tiie helm, and the baby for passenger, ******* ft was harder to maintain the high level of contentment Alter Lilllun returned, from Europe fljud established herself IB «W flew hojw o» *»<> road, out Rear Lx>yoja. Wi him wTieii Stfe freeted Ernestine 1»fi9 the baby and flattering him skilfully. After Will had left for the Sun the three women followed one another about the house, passed the baby back ahd forth between. them, and talked, talked, talked, all at the same time, alt listening and talking, all intent on catching up the old Intimacy. It was charming. Ernestine could not remember when fhe had spent such a happy afternoon. There was no one like mamma—no one! "I've got to go, because papa Is bringing a new stone-merger man home with him for dinner. 1 am go- Ing to put rock powder In the coffee!" Mamma kissed them all goodby, with tears In her eyes. Ernestine looked at Lillian and realized with a shock how changed she was In the six months since her mar- She Was Satisfied With Her Lot and Herself. rlnge. She Was satisfied with her lot and herself. There was almost danger —a challenge to fate In her complacency. She was gentle and kind to Ernestine, but subtly patronizing. It was especially noticeable since momma had gone, for mamma kept Lillian in check. But if Lillian was changed, Loring was startllngly so. He seemed to Ernestine bigger, handsomer. His blond strength was now set in a robust vitality which was very different from Will's volatile excitability. He kissed Ernestine affectionately, told her she looked well and admired the baby. Mamma had trained a maid for Lillian, and she served In silent competence an excellent dinner, but the bright vivacity of the afternoon was gone. The ^Interwoven volubility of 'the three, women, theif constant Interruption of one another^ thet^exclama- tions and cries of astonishment or Lor- WEST BEND NEWS.

The criminal lawyer Is the important lawyer of today. Ho Is the man with power in the courts. It will'be a new kind of litigation for our office, but if 1 can get the business I can handle it. I went to see that Greek chap—Pastuno —this afternoon, nnd recalled to him our acquaintanceship and our mutual friends. He remembered me perfectly and asked about you. He seems much Interested in you and Will. He's the man to see, Tom Kelly told me, at the City hail. He has the. say about all that Clark street colony. There's no end of money there and I'm going to dig some of it out for us." Ernestine's face was Hushed. She could not deny her anger. "But It seems Inconsistent to me," she sold quickly, "for you to take advantage of his friendship for Will when you disapprove so of our knowing him. I don't understand." "What has friendship got to do with business?" Loring asked, and ills own face flushed with resentment. "I tell you I've got to make new contacts if we're to bring a different kind of clientele into the otlice. Besides, I didn't disapprove of Will knowing him. It was only his taking you to that dive. Do you think I would mix Lillian up with that crowd?" "I can't see any grand difference," retorted Ernestine. "Lillian isn't a baby. She's your wife, anyhow. Besides, the I'nstanos are all right—all of them, I know them well, and the two girls are us fine as any I have met, There's not a month passes that we don't visit them, or they don't call. Mr. Pastano admires Will. He once hurt my feelings, and he's been making It up ever since. We've been friends without asking about his political activities or how he makes his money." , It's all very well for you to take un attitude with,me," declared Loring, "but I've come home with the determination to make money—and a lot of It. Chicago Is rich. I may (is well take some of it as others. And If an acquaintance with a powerful man like Pastuno falls to my luck, I'll pursue it. Will would want me to." "Will would," admitted Ernestine, but her looks were cold. "You've changed, Loring. You used not be so ambitious," "I've acquired a new sense of values," lie admitted. "Of course I'm not saying at all that a man should stick at nothing to make money. That's a mistake, and no good anyhow. But I've been around—I saw one thing everywhere. It Is the pas- slcm for the possession of money—as much as a msu can lav hands on." tl po»'t be silly, koringy 1 s«ld Ws wife Wildly.
