Brninpton, and beside It was a photo
Briiph, tlint of n child perhaps two
years old. Either It was a poorly tok
en picture, or tho subject was out
raKcously ugly looking naturally.
"Homely as sin," growled Joel, feel

been back homo since they were mar

weeks' visit, and little Virginia was
to be brought In triumph. "Little
cherub," tool; the prize at a baby
show. "So smart and cute!" and like
enthusiastic sentiments from its fond
grandmother had aroused pride and
anticipation In tho mind of Joel Dor
klns. Now lie was disillusioned, with
a positive shock. The photograph lay
before him. probably Just sent by Ku
nlco. Ho bad gone to u Jeweler tho
week before nnd had ordered a cosily
nock chain, ho bad written out a check
for ono hundred dollars to bo present
ed to (be wonderful granddaughter as
the start of a savings account.
"I'll cancel the order and tear up the

hope they don't parade the child
around to have people endure its ap
palling homeliness. 'Cherub.' 'Pretty

In a fever of dissatisfaction ami re
Hontmcnt. Half n mile a way lived
Harper Drlggs, the father of lOuiiico's
husband. Drlggs wns a retired farm
er, well-to-do, and Joel located him In
the upper floor of the barn where he
had a work shop. Originally Drlggs
hud boon a weaver In straw nnd split

"Whatever possesses father?" more
tli-in once during tlto week Mrs. Dor-Un-
observed to her daughter. "He

Ones around as If the coming of your
sister and Walter and the baby was
p. bore and annoyance to htm."
"Oh, you're mistaken, mamma !" In
Glsted Nora Dorklns. "Ho Is Just so
anxious to see the little one, and cod
dle it. and crow over it that bo can
iwrdly wait until Tuesday arrives."
Joel Dorklns overheard the latter
opinion expressed nnd shook himself,
and growled, and went out in tho gar
don and kicked up tho turf. Those
big eyes! That lint nose!
Tuesday took him to town. The
Drlggs trio were expected to arrive
nbout noon. Joel returned home nbout
two o'clock. He was slightly penitent
as to bis aversion for the ugly child
ho wns expected to go into ecstasies
over. He could not feel pleasant or
welcoming, but lie felt It a duty to
appear glad and cheerful ut having
Eunice once more under the home roof.
As lie neared the housv be fancied ho
distinguished a (hitter of feminine
skirts disappearing. As lie walked tip
the gravel path lie stared hard. Seated
In the wicker rocker that Drlggs hud
made and presented was the most ex
quisitely perfect and beautiful little
child his gaze hod ever rested upon.
Her eyes wore starlike, her ringlets
suggested an aureole of burnished gold.
Tho moment she snw him approaching
sho arose, clapped her hands, nnd then,
extending them caressingly towards
him, exclaimed in wild and Joyous
"Dear Anspa ! I'bo Virginia INtello
Drlggs. How did you do?"
Joel fairly reeled. As there cumo
n suppressed Uttering from beyond tho
screen door leading Into the hallway,
he realized that tho child wa repeat
ing u tutored lesson framed for ids
especial benellt. Tho child fairly
sprung Into his arms. There ho hold
her, quivering all over with emotions
ho could not analyze.
Then he en mo in for a hugging from
Kunii e. which bis son-in-law followed
with a gonial, heartsomo greeting. And
while they nil babbled over tho de
lighted little one, Joel stolo out to tho
kitchen. He hung around his wifo in
a wavering, unaccountable way until
"Joel, what ever possesses you, act
ing llko a man In a dnzc!"
"I was Just wondering," blurted Joel.
"I noticed a photograph of n baby on
your bureau "
"Oh, that - your picture when you
was a baby," replied Mrs. Dorklns.
"What about It?"
"Oh. nothing at all !" answered Joel,
with a w 'nee.
"Your mother guvo U to mo years

o A Clever Rescuer
LBy WALWORTH NIXON
(. 1D10. Western Newspaper Union )
"Well, I've made my choice," an
nounced Miss Lnvlnin Morton, aged
forty, tt typical old maid from the
coiffure of ages past to tho Hat solo
nnd !ow-hcel footgear of u generation
Three pairs of eyes viewed the
spenker both eagerly and noxiously.
They belonged to the grownup "chil
dren" of the Donne family Estelle,
Mym nnd Cyril. Tho two first named
wero married and settled In life, Cyril
was single. They all lived In the old
homo the widowed mistress of which
lind died n year previous. It was then
that at a family conclave an arrange
ment of cooperative companionship
was agreed on. Tho two married
couples and Cyril divided the budget
of expense nnd sent for Aunt Lnvlnin
to net as housekeeper.
Sho was nent, economical and ac
tive. Cieanllnoss was her hobby and
orderliness her living principle. Half
sister of Mrs. Doone, she assumed a
certain guardianship over her grown
up charges its if the care had been
left to her as n heritage. Almost un
consciously nieces and husbands nnd
nephew fell Into a tacit obedlcnco to
the ways of the exacting and at times
mandatory severe1 taskmaster. She
had made herself a blessing to the dis
rupted household, however, and they
Iieb their peace when sho demanded
strict discipline as to meal hours and
those of rising and retiring.
"Aunt Lnvlnin is good ns gold," ob
served Estelle one day to her sister,
"but It is really a relief to get a
change of atmosphere during our
month at the seashore."
"Yes, but she may wish to go with
us," remarked Myro.
"I hope not," said Estelle, but the
very next day Aunt Lavlnla announced
that she had decideil to close up tho
house during July and ( spend the
month wllii someone of the "three
children," If .she would be welcome.
"You aro going to Portland beach,
Estelle, and you to Koyal Sands, Myra.
Well, 1 don't like the strong sea air.
You told me you wore going to spend
two weeks at Clear lake, Cyril. That
Just suits me. I'll keep you company."
The sisters wore tilled with secret
Joy. Cyril Donne looked diimfound
cd. Tho charge of ids old relative
during hN annual period of recrea
tion was not at all welcome. I lor con
stant presence would Involve a devot
edness io whims nnd wishes that
would spoil lils vocation. For a mo
ment bis face fell and bis eyes wore
clouded. Then with a bravo smile he
conquered ills real feelings. A realiza
tion of all the kindness ami self-sncrt-llce
of this sterling, worthy woman en
tered Ills soul.
"A mi i Lnvlnin," he said genially,
"I shall feel It a proud honor to glvo
you the time of your life. You de
serve tho besi on earth and I shall do
volo myself to swing Hint joii get it."
"You delightful big boy!" enthused
Miss Morton, with 'oars In her eyes.
"No wonder T love you as If you were
my own son !"
Cyril did not loll his relatives, but
he had an object In solectlng Clear
lnko as a vm-nilou spot. Tlx season
before be bad niei thre .quite Infor
mally among a group a Miss Vera
Bloke. He had noxer before boon so
Impressed and a memory of her fair
face, iiad remained with him. He un
derstood that she came .to the lake
annually and hoped the opport unity
would malerinllzo to renew the nc-qunlntanvcsliip.
fell MOTHER EWORLD -I;.
The "Greatest Mother" concept which was visualized la tho famous art
poster used by tho American Bed Cross in Its second wnr fund campaign
hu had Its symbolism adapted to the Bed Cross works of tho post-war era
nnd will lllutnlnato the main poster to bo used In tho Fourth Boll Call Novem
ber 11-28. This adaptation will benr tho title "Still tho Ureatest Mother In
the World." Everyono Is familiar with the original "The Greatest Mother in
tho World," tho effectiveness of which has been shown in part by the fact
that It has furnished n synonym for Bed Cross that has come to nlmost a
housohold torm. Moro than any other symbol, except the red cross Itself, the
public hns mado It tho trademark of the American Bed Cross.

was surrounded by every comfort nt
the resort hotel. Miss BlHko had not
nrrlved, but, Cyril heard, was expct
oxl with her mother during tho wek.
Ills favorite recreation wns canoeing.
Aunt Lnvlnin Hoeoinpunled him .sev
eral times, and one nfternoon had
come as far as tho bench nnd had
plnced In tho ennoo her umbrella and
a wrap, when sho snld:
"I nm so timid on tho water In a
storm, Cyril, and T think wo are go
ing to linve one."
"Not before wo have finished am'
trip." declared Cyril, but ns a lady ln
vnriably set In her opinions Mlas
Lnvlnin returned to the hotel and
Cyril started out hIoiio.
Miss Lavlnln's prediction csmt' true
an hour Inter. The wind blew and the
rain fell, nnd Cyril was making n
hasty dash for the shore when he no
ticed a ennne nearly hnlf n mile off
shore contending vainly with the ris
ing elements of tho tempest. lie could
innke out a form feminine apparently
In n whirling craft. Then It cap
sized outright nnd the Imperiled being,
whoever she was, clung desperately to
the overturned canoe.
Cyril could mako no pragmas
against the hallllng winds, but a quick
stieircstlon came tn bltn. Tie Kofonfl
Aunt Lnvnla's umbrella, outspread Itj
and with this unique sail was homo
through the water straight toward!
tho spot whore the uccldent occurrod.
There was a double glory of hero
ism and delight when be had lifted
the victim of mishap from her dan
gerous position, for she was Mlas
Blako, the lady of his thoughts tho
entrancing lndy of his choice, ob bo
decided before his delightful vacation
had come to an end, for tho unexpect
ed episode of roscuo mndo him
precious and beloved In tho cyea of
the peerless Vera. ',
He kissed Aunt Lnvlnin with
warmth and tenderness the day ho bo
enme Yorn Hlnkc's fiance, nnd she
thrilled and quivered when Cyril told
her that but for her umbrella ho
might never have won his life's hap
piness. DENMARK TO BE REPUBLIC?

Denmark Is today a limited monar

Denmark has a population of 2,500,

people to the square mile on tho main
land nnd 275 to the square mllo on the
many Islands along the coast. Copen
