"You never can tell," she insisted, and though Will laughed at this, he did not resist her tenderness toward the house. ' Papa established the trust funds. Money poured in upon them In the ridiculous and unreasonable way in which money behaves. It seemed now- that nothing wns too nice for the Todds. The new baby was born under the most promising conditions, in the Colonial room in the modern and beautiful home. A boy, long limbed and with a pointed face, like Will's. Lillian was with Ernestine every day, and Ernestine noticed for the first time that Lillian's beauty was fading. She hung over the new baby, she was gentle with Peter and Elaine, who visited their mother at every •possible moment. Once when the , two = had been watching the nurse bathe the newcomer and wrap. him deftly In binder and cloth, turning,him about in her hands while he gave soft grunts arif) sjehs^of satisfaction, rand then fresh and well. He adored the children and enjoyed them more than he ever had, and no woman ever had a more loverllke husband than Ernestine. Two or three times a week they went to the-theater, or to concerts, satisfying a long-starved hunger for beauty of sight and sound, for movement and color. Ernestine had picked up easily the old threads of social contact, as though she had been living in another city all this while. The old friends closed around her as naturally as though she had never been far from N tliem, and in a little while the jargon, the famlllai' jokes, the odd intimacies .were back with her again. The money flowed In uncontrollably. They bought a second car, and there were beautiful clothes, new Jewels and furs for Ernestine, charge accounts, a pony stabled at an expensive riding academy for the children. They talked of buying the house they were in, but already It seemed small. Will thought he would like to be nearer the lake and farther north, needed more room. He felt that they Praye Wednesday eveiU Tjv? welegme you . p, M.tteajbj« fond praise at seven- our ser- at last tucked-'him In snowy flannelette .Into the, curve of Ernestine's arm, with a little spank and tender scolding, Lillian'looked at Ernestine with tears }n her eyes. "I wish," she said, "that H'had been this baby's birth that Loring knew about." Her voice trailed away and Ernestine tingled with a sense of guilt. So that was why Lillian had no children I "It's hard for people who haven't children to understand how quickly all the woes of bearing them are forgotten. I never think of that old time any more, and I'm sure Will doesn't Anyhow—if it had been worse, don't you think Elaine was worth it?" "Yes," said Lillian, "of course she is. But it was a dreadful time, Ernestine. I don't believe- you have ever known how near you came to dying. It was a terrible time for all of us." "After nil," smiled the younger sister, "In such a case an Inch is as good as a mile. That whole dark time —it wns all so wrong, apparently, for me to have that second baby, and now wild horses couldn't tear her from us. You can't always plan things out." Later, Will cnrae in, and found Ernestine alone. "Kemember that murder car you saw at I'astano's lust summer?" "Of course. I'll never forget It." "Well, the new district attorney has arrested six of I'astnno's relatives. It seems tliose'men were killed in a fight with another bunch of gangsters. But these fellows were Pastano's men, and One day .in the fall when "Billy the Baby"; was two years old, Ernestine entertained her bridge club and that afternoon seemed to her a perfect example of what life might be for a woman. She was proud of her home, proud of her thin china, her beautiful silver, her gracious friends. The new •maid was well trained. The cook, stimulated by flattery, had outdone herself. The children came Jn and spoke to the guests who all exclaimed over them. They went out •with their nurse to walk to the lake. Even Lillian, who had become silent and're- mote since her last trip to New York, displayed some of her old gay spirits. The talk fell into happy reminiscence -Ot.tlielr..clil.lduj0o4^imd. girlhood.^- - -— After the guests were gone and Ernestine was helping the maid to tidy the living room, putting cushions In place, folding the card table covers, as. the girl set the furniture back, Lillian stayed on, lying back In a chair of red velvet, her fair heml pressorl- against the-fabric, her arm!" laxly over the side;of the chair, smoking a cigarette, watching Ernestine. As the maid went out with the tables and covers and a tray of ash boxes, Ernestine flung herself down with an exclamation of weariness. Lillian astonished her. "Wha't's the matter with Will, kitten?" "Why—he's all right. He's a little thin, but he'll pick up. He always loses weight in hot weather." "But 1 It's October now. It hasn't been really hot for weeks. I saw him on North Clark street t-nday while I was waiting in the car for Loring, who was. visiting one of his Greeks. He came and talked to me. He looked very white and thin, I thought—and his eyes were too" bright—feverish, You must give him milk and eggs Will is the type, linear I think yoi call it, that runs easily into T. B. He' Indoors too .much." Ernestine was silent, thinking swift ly. "Will's all right, I think," she sal n little shortly, but she looked grave Lillian arched her brows In disbu lief, but said no more. After a whll she left In her own car, while Ernes tine sat on the big couch, the silk and satin pillows, the wide low room wltl its- charming furniture and carve< fireplace forgotten in an instant. What was Will doing on North Olark street? He and Mr. Poole had hat an oilice there long ago. Will had been strange of late. dancing. At midnight a nice lunch was served and prizes were awarded To the Winning bridge scores. Wesliy Visitors—_ Mrs. Stella Shadley, and Mr. and Mrs. N. D. Bates of New Sharon left for their homes Wednesday after a two weeks' visit with their sister, Mrs. Frank Tomlin and husband.

Another visitor at the Hutchison home last week was Frank Scandrett, a former hired man of the Hutchisons when they were farmers. He was on his way home to northern Missouri, after a month or more in the harvest fields of North Dakota. Good Fishing- Preston Chapin, Arlo -Dawson, Carl Franzen and son, Enar, returned from their fishing trip to Spirit Lake last week and report a wonderful time both socially and "flshtagly." They each brought back a nice mess of fish, the largest being a pike which measured fifteen inches, and others nearly as large. The latter part of the week found Franzen for another taste of fish and found Andrew Gollner in the same frame of mind so the two enjoyed another trip to the lake this time bringing back twenty-three, most of which were perch. Much Sickness— It seems that troubles come not single file, at least not ta the Goetz family. Last Wednesday, Mrs. Mary Goetz fell down and painfully bruised and sprained her arm, requiring medical attention at once. It was thought at first that a bone might have been broken but examination found that it had been badly sprained. Her son, Mike P. has been confined to his bed with a severe case of erysipelas and another, son, George, is at home with his mother, suffering from .rheumatism.

Her mind went reluctantly to Will, as though forced against itself to consider dangers. Perhaps he needed mothering. He was subject to periods of nervous and mental depres slon because ho could not remember that he had a body long enough to take care of It. She wondered if he were worried about money. They were spending it like water, but there geeniod so much of it. The children came In, rosy and laughing from their walk, and crowded upon her. She loved. to have them close. They clattered eagerly as she sat down with them to their simple, appetizing supper, the nursemaid smiling ami talking to her with a pretty deference. She and Will had dinner together, later, after the children had had half an hour with their father, and gone up to bed. But Will did not come in at their bedtime as he usually aid. Disappointed, they finally traded off up the stairs, and Ernestine wondered if she ijad missed Will.

"Five bottles have restored me to health. I suffered terribly from stomach trouble, for everything I ato soured, and the gas caused great distress. My nerves were shattered, and I ached to my finger tips. Finally niy condition was such that I could not do my housework. Even tho slightest noise ; made me irritable; my nerves were beyond control." "But what a difference today. Ui> to now I have taken five bottles, anil will take the two that the Konjola Man gave me as a present. Improvement began with the very first bottle. Gradually indigestion disappeared; I could sleep fine, and energy increased daily. My stomach is no longer sour and gas does not bother me. I heartily endorse Konjola." Konjola has become the most talked of medicine ta America because it makes good. And Konjola makes good ta the most stubborn cases where given a fair trial. Six to eight bottles is recommended as a fair test. Konjola is sold ta Algoua, Iowa, at B. W. Lusby drug store, and by all the best druggists in all towns throughout this entire section.—Adv. 15
