The girl looked about the old-fash-Jonod
room with the French windows

-out on wide verandas. Then she went

which she had expected to find, had
(given way surprisingly to new and rol

n chair :ind placed her traveling bag
beneath it, and begun to play the one
sentimental piece nlio could Mud. It
was something about "Oh I I'm lonely,"
nnd "Oh, I'm blue." and carried a
touching appeal. Hut as Snllle for
the second time reached the chorus
nnd was walling softly, "Oh I I'm so
lone-ly," a masculine voice nearby em
phatlcally remarked :
"So am I."
And ns Sallle, undecided whether to
stop or to proceed, uniintlelng with her
song, finished "Oh! I'm blu-eV' the
young man again exclaimed:
"Thnt'8 me, too. I've been sitting
out there," he went on, as she turned
on the stool, "wanting to curse every

voice expressed my feelings for me."

"I came to visit my Aunt Kinollno,"

at home, while you ?"
"I am very much at homo," the man
Sallle stooped to pick up her bag.
She would go In search of Aunt Kme

"I am James Oliver Lodge," be nn

4hnt she had Joked enough.
Under pretense of reading, she took

imin obediently passed out through a
Vronch window to the veranda. On

ended tragically, "from my home."

"what's all this I hear about your at

Harnett Willis turned sharply.
"Who has been talking to you about

four hours without learning the se

"So It is a heart secret?" the girl
laughed. "Well, tin to my Informant,
she Is no other than your mother's old

It was unusually silent at the Merrl
well breakfast table that sunny morn

brown pancakes and gave his undivid
ed attention to the morning paper.
Mother Morrlwell sat motionless, her
eyes fixed on Jimmy, Sr.'s face, while

"What Is the matter with you this
morning, Jim?" asked his wife. "You
haven't eaten n thing; Anything
wrong with the breakfast?"
"No! yes I Everything is wrong!"
snapped her husband. Jim never had
spoken to his wife In thnt tone be
fore. "Jim! Whnt on earth are you talk
Standing beside her chair, his face
white, his hands shaking, he pointed
an accusing finger at her.
"You're the reason ! How can I get
anywhere In this world when, Instead
helping, you deliberately hinder?"
Nan snt very still, her eyes big with
wonder. He went on
"Hero I am, a young man. with n.
reasonable amount of brains, trying to

my wife Insists on wearing house
nprons from morning till night? Oth

clothes, nnd look nice, but you . . ."
He broke off nid paced the floor.
He went Into the hall and strug
gled Into his overcoat, and then came
"You know nbout that proposition
If I got that chance It will mean il sub
stantial raise, but I can't do It alone.
A nice wife, you are!"
All that morning, Nnn wns (pilot,
trying to think of some way to ap

sho prepared some wnflle hatter. Then
the hell rang, and to her astonishment

"This Is Mr. Charleson, Nnn. Mr.
Chnrloson, meet my wife." Mr.
Charleson was president of Jim's com
pany, and It was he who would deter
mine who would get the Knlrvlew con
tract. She led them Into the cheery
living room, where Jimmy, Jr.. snt on
tho floor In tho sun, playing.
"Mr. Charleson and I were over to
Fnlrvlew, nnd as It was lunch time,
wo thought we'd come here." Jim
avoided his wife's eyes, but ,Nun rose
to the occasion.
"I am sure I am very glad to hnvo
you, Mr. Charleson. If you will ex
cuse me, I'll get lunch."
When they entered the dining room,
Jim shot her a look of reproach as he
viewed the table, but Mr. Charleson
was very jovial, and soon he and Nan
were chatting like old friends. To
Jim's disgust, tho topics were baby

doughnuts that Nan had made that
morning. Mr. Chnrloson lenned back
and smiled nt Nan.
"You're a line cook, Mrs. Morrlwell,

When they had gone, Nun dropped
wearily Into a chair and cried. Jim
my, Jr., toddled over to her nnd she
caught him In her linns.
"Oh, baby, I'm afraid we've queered
everything. Jim was so angry."
An hour earlier than usual, Jim
burst In, recklessly slamming the door,
caught his wife and swung her clear
off the floor, covering her face with
"Oh, Nannie, girl, you did It! I've
got It I" And he twirled her around
"About ten o'clock Mr. Chnrloson
called mo Into his ofllce and said he

he said :

" 'Your wife knows how to cook. Sho

way, you can start on that Fnlrvlew
