On a trip to the '•bank she 1 faints on the street, {Continued from IB**-- Wednesday.) Will Had lifted his face, and he -stared .at Ernestine and gently smoothed her cheek, while her bright -eyes turned on him. "Papa—you must find Will—he'll • worry," she urged him. '.'I , can't say about moving her. •.Y.ou'11' have. to see the floor doctor. ; She Is very 111 'to be moved—please i leave the ward now." The nurse wus definite. Training .;and authority .were behind her, and i they .withdrew, i Even Will hod to i leave .her,' hut Ernestine made such an • outcry.that the.:nurse permitted him i to-come back until .Lorlng should make : arrangements to move Ernestine. i Lillian found herself In a tiny re. ceptlon room furnished barely. Lorlng i had gone to the office, Mrs. Bennett to i the , phone booth • .downstairs. For a • moment', Lillian thought she was go- .ing'to; be sick. She clung desperately i to i the arms of the. chair. She was the. only woman In the room. A black : jnan stood near her, twisting a cloth • cap in his hands, his lips moving • soundlessly. There was another man, shabby, .unclean, suffering In patient (silence, and they were Joined by a third, and then a fourth vague quiet figure.

There 'was & doctor, too. Lillian stood 'Just inside the door. The doctor was silent for a'long time, examining Ernestine, reading the copy of the .chart 'that had 'been sent with her. "Oremea—»anfl -some albumen," .'he said aa though ;any 'Of them knew what he meant. "The 'baby will 'be premature— -It we can get' her through her •confinement mow-swiftly,-she'll be all right.

Mamma had allowed papa and lorlng 'to dictate to her atwut "Will's father. That had really separated Ernestine from them long ago. They had offered "Ernestine their love and 'help only >nt the price of Defrayal of 'her marriage. 'Tears came ito t/H- Han, and eventually, tired and sad, she fell asleep. iDayllght streaming over iher bed wakened her. She rose, dressed, went across to the hospital and asked for Will, wondering as she did so whether or -not she should .have asked for iLorlng. Will came to her In the reception •room, looking at her from dull heavy eyes, silent, waiting. "How Is Ernestine, will?" she asked him softly. •"She Is still very .111," he answered, and added as an .afterthought: "The baby Is a girl:" ; ,Ue was exhausted, .unshaved, sad and awry. As he stood there looking' vaguely about .him he seemed to Lillian the most forlorn and helpless bu- .man being she .1md .ever seen. She .pitied him, but .he vexed her. "Oh, Will," -she said impulsively, 'tyou shouldn't have allowed Ernestine to have this other .baby—so *oon, when .you wereult prepared. You should have protected bur." He averted his face, but-she saw his Hush. •".I've got to :go back upstairs," >he said, and added, .as he turned 'to the door, "Lorlng has already lectured me .otr.birth control. He's left the hospital. You must :hB.ve missed him." •Lillian was ashamed. She had not ilutended to soy such a thing. It was none of their business, .really. At .the hotel she stopped at the desk for the key, hut Lorlng had .it. She went up hi the quiet elevator. When she opened the unlocked door of their room and .went in, Lorlng was lying back In a chair by the open .window, his bat -on the floor beside him, his .collar and tie i lying upon it. He -was staring straight before him, and when Lillian came to his side -he looked up Jit her with -a .piteous -expression. •For a moment, standing there, a .dart of such pain .went through iLH- Hun that she cried .out. This was what Ernestine .could do to Lorlug. She knew, with .a gripping pang -of • conviction, that .nothing that could .ever .happen to her would cause him such .anguish—such rout. This was what Will meant when .he said that'he knew what was the matter with Lor- ingl 'She fell on iher knees beside him, .sobbing, and laid 'her face upon his knee. • His hand .fell on her shoul- .ders. He mistook iher fear and pain. •".Shelll be all right, -Lillian," he whispered.

He pulled her tear-wet face up from his knee, .and looked at her with blazing oyes. '"you and I will 'have to be enough. No child {8 worth -such anguish. :No life is worth—death. No .children—for us." ' • .She :hld her face against 'him. Her .arms 'held him close. "I don't .care, If only yon -Will love ime:" He pressed her to him but tols eyes ihad flown ito the windows of the lios- ipital, and she felt a tremor pass ithrough 'his :big frame. *•»•*»*» (Ernestine -stayed in the hospital until ithe 'baby <was a month old. Will borrowed ithe money from Mr. Poole and ipald the hospital bill, paid the nurse and the two doctors, the .day she vwas to 'be .discharged, Lorlng protested In -vain. The removal to ithe expensive private hospital had been his suggestion—It was he who got the nurse, who got ithe two doctors; toe Jiad "Hftnned 'to meet all these expenses. But Will was deaf to him. He was /going .to pay Ernestine's hospital bill, 'he .declared, if he had to rob a tbank. vWliat 'business wus It of Loring's? Ittwas Wiirs wife— Will's child. Legally ithe debt -was Todd's. There was nothing that .could be done about It, but the argument increased the bad blood between >the men. Ernestine wanted to go ito her own home, she told Lillian. Manama was hurrying back from Europe, The house at the lake was closed. Lfitlian .remonstrated with Ernestine's determination to go back to the house orat In Mayfalr. "But what will you do?" she asked, and her face grew red, "Will Isn't even working." "Yes, I am," said Will "I started today. Mr, I'oole I* going to open an Independent ntudlo, and I am going to work for him. He's got ihold of the copyrights to Ms old atrip and we are going to syndicate It ourselves. It will bring us In a lot of money. I'm to get lifty dollars u week to begin with . . . and we'll be al! right." Lillian's dismay was increased, not • diminished, by this news. The combination of Will and Mr. 1'oole was worse than nothing, It appeared to Her, "I don't know what momma will say," she protested feebly, but neither Ernestine nor Will seemed to be moved by that. It was a wonderful day when Ernestine wept home. All the way home in the taxi Will belt] the baby in one arm and Ernestine in the other, and his face was shining with -Joy when at last they stood iu their little kitchen, she weak and, trembling In hla arms. He was starved for her, but he kissed her gently, got the rocker and filled It with cushions and placed U by the open kitchen door. She eat there and watched him prepare supper. _ "Wliy gBJie jpjg, when they Jmd Te M3 cloSea thg door against the fall dusk, "you're like you used to be. Tou're like yon trere that day we met upon the street, when 1 «rst fell In love with you. Tell me. what Is Itr 1 "the new Job, I gaess. I'm crazy nbout It, Ernestine.

It.—1 believe we'll ninlte a success— a big one." His enthusiasm was boundless.^ While he washed the dlslies lie talked to her, nnd then they put the children to bed, and he drew Ernestine •onto his knees. "Tell me, Ernestine—It was an ungodly business—hut you aren't sorry, are you? Now that you're both home again—you're glad we've got her— aren't you?" They sat looking at the bn'oy. Will pressed his cheek against Ernestine's shoulder. "Tell me," he Implored her. Ernestine understood Ills need for assurance. He was still suffering from the humiliation Lilllnn and Lorlng had heaped on tilm._ "They said—1 shouldn't have allowed—allowed," he exclaimed sharply at the word. "1 never thought about H." "We're married, aren't we?" asked Ernestine, and as his bright look questioned her she shook her head a little. "That's all," she said. "That's the answer. I'm your wife—1 love you—of course I'm glad." He kissed tier passionately. It seemed so long since she had been In his arms like this—close, close. "Ob, Ernestine," he 'salJ, "I don't deserve you. The future Is uncertain. But tf ever a wife deserved a good husband, yon do. But, sweetheart, it's hard, it's been, harder for you than Sot me;*''don't think I don't know It. But.tfs been W0rth the riskj.hasn't'ltr ' "As long 'as we hold together," she whispered. "As long as we love." And he poured his kisses upon her thin flushed face." •"I'll make up to you for everything —you'll never be sorry," he told her. And she lay against him, yielding, tremulous and in love, forgetting everything else for him as she had forgotten again and again. CHAPTER X Will Has a Vision The flrm of Poole and Todd found Itself at the end of two years established beyond question. It owed Its success to Will's terrific efforts. He had met and overcome one after another of -their natural foes: Mr. Poole's Idleness and Intemperance. By a kind of fierce affection he had dominated and controlled the old man and kept him working. The profits were divided, after he had his fifty a week, and Poole his hundred. And out of bis share of the profits, Will repaid his partner for the loan for Ernestine's hospital bill. He repaid him the exact half of the amount Poole had sunk Into the business at the beginning. And after two years he found himself face to face with the one enemy he could not conquer. Ernestine noticed that he grew tliln and pale, that fall that the baby, Elaine, was two. "What Is It. Will?" she asked him. "I thought everything was fine now." "It's Poole," said Will. "lie's not drawing—he's boozing, hut, of course, that's not new. Only—he's lost Interest." "What do you mean. Will?" lie seemed reluctant to put his thought Into crude words. •"He's falling—his health. Uis eyes are ;bad." "You mean—he's old?" "Yes," said Will. "That's what 1 mean, lie can't help It—poor devil- he struggles against It—but It's showing on li.lm." "But, Will, what are you doing?"

How I suffered I spent $60 seeking relief in vain. For three weeks I was in bed. A friend in the railroad shops recommended Konjola. I have taken four bottles and am In fine shape, able to work, eat and sleep. I am forty-two years of age but feel like I did when in my teens. I am recommending Konjola every chance I get, for It Is surely a wonderful medicine." Isn't that the kind of medicine you want? . It means much to suffering humanity to know that seven million bottles of Konjola were used in two years. 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. 10
