Lcsllo was very glad to bo homo.
Bhe left tho elevator with a buoyant
tatep, opened tho door -to tho studio
feulto, and breathed a bIrIi of supremo
happiness. Homo was homo after all.
j It was a warm Indian summer
tight Sho decided not to light the
gas. Tho view ot tho city was too
enthralling nt that lato hour to spoil.
Bho threw her cloak and hat on the
hall settle, nnd went on into tho re
Yes, It was Just ns sho had left it,
two months before. Tho Janitor's wife
had been up and cleaned for her, and
left tho windows open, sho noticed.
Tho couch wub not In its usual place.
Sho turned nround and nearly fell
over a chulr placed at n now angle,
laughed, and dropped down on tho
"Just for a mluuto's rest." she told
herself, uftor the long day of travel,
and oven with thnt thought weighing
on her, she fell asleep, cxhuustcd but
Tho closing of tho outer door was
.what wakened her. Sho heard it far
Staff in her dreams, and wakened listen'
ig Steps sounded through tho hall,
ulet, rather slow, but steps. As she
propped herself on ono elbow, and
ooked cautiously out boyond the
anglngs at tho arch, sho saw the
gure of a man outlined distinctly
against tho half light Ho was tall
rod young, sho could tell thnt much
even as she stood with averted face
before tho dining-room door. Ho en
tered tho inner room, after a pause,
and she caught tho scratch of a match.
It was a daring burglar. More, ho was
whistling Boftly under hla breath as
ho moved about
t Lcsllo roso determinedly. Packed
jundcr tho sideboard was a full tea
fot of sliver, and various precious
amily odds and ends that sho hnd

mont to brighten her city abode. They
should not fall Into tho snek of uny
Raffles if she could save them.
' "What are you doing horo?"
Ho turned at her voice It was a
jtrlflo shaky, but determined. Her
jwavy blond hair wns rumpled, her
cheeks Hushed from her short Bleep
and her blue eyes very wide and Btart
llngly bright. Sho was figuring tho
distance to tho telcphono in tho hall
even while she watched him.
Yet bis answer wns an old one, and
most touching In his simplicity.
"I'm hungry," ho said, gently.
, "Oh, you poor fellow," sho ex
claimed before sho thought. "Can't
you find any employment at all? Do
you have to follow this life? You
don't look that kind."
"It's bully of you to say so," he re
turned warmly, hands in pockets,
leaning across the tablo toward her,
with oyes full of frankest admiration.
"I'm awfully hungry, don't you know."
"And there Isn't a thing to cat In
the Icebox. I've been away for two

I "And you thought I wbb still ab
Bent," Bho dashed back. "Please don't
think I'm nervous. I'm not a hit, but
won't you tako your hands out of
your pockets? I keep thinking you
are going to leap at me and brnBs
By Jove, I'm sorry." His hands
came from his pockets instantly
"Honestly, 1 haven't anything desper

Tho two faced each other, tho broad
kilning table between. Ho looked
straight into her eyes until the gaze
wavered and drooped.

Out of tho window sho climbed,
laughing, flushing, nnd trembling too,
hut ho went first down tho steps, and
led her to her own window.

Explanation for (Spontaneous Wound.
Dr. Y. Tannka describes a form of
wound which occurs spontaneously
nnd Is frequently seen In Japan, tho
so-called Kamnltachl disease. The
wound suddenly occurs apparently
without rhymo or reason, as It were
nnd Is exactly Identical in appearance
with a tear of tho soft parts; In shape
It Is somewhat crescentlc. Usually It
appears In ono of tho lower limbs,
boniotlmo"? on tho face. The Injury
inatcrnllzes during thunder storms In
explanation tho author points out,
through a nolo In the British Medical
Journal, that, as Is known by meteor
ologists, during thunder storms a tem
porary vacuum may occur In places as
a result of stray nlr currents; ami If
a part of tho body comes Into such a
ppneo n tear niny resut from tho In
ternal prcssuro unmodified by tho no
tion of external prossuro. "Tho ensea
usually occur In outlying mountain dis
tricts, rich In trees and streams; and
It is In Just such districts that In a
thunder storm atmospheric conditions
cnu most roadly produce a vacuum of
the kind described."

HAVE A SYSTEM IN MENDING
Will Save Much Time and Trouble.
and Garments Wilt Be In Order
Thero is nothing on earth like sys
tem, and nowhere do you realize this
moro than in matters of dress. Tho
tiny holo In your stocking that you
might have mended in two minutes
grows into an undnrnablo "run," tho
rip under the arm In your new blouse
extends alarmingly; nothing that must
bo mended stays "where it Is put."
Tho remedy for all this is a regulnr
mending day or a regular mending
evening If you nro a business woman
As soon ns a garment needs mending
if It be only a button or a hook that
must bo replaced, put it aside unless
It Ii bo necessary that you must at
tend to tho trouble at once, and when
mending day rolls around do tho re
quired sewing. You will bo surprised
to find how much lighter your work
becomes when you can thus catch
rents nnd tears at their start Instead
of nt their disastrous finish. Tho oth
er point to remember is to nlways
havo your sowing Implements where
you can get them nnd In perfect order.
Do not wait until tho very moment
for mending to find that you nro out
of white thread or that your needles
aro rusty. When a .thing needs re
pairing, repair It; when It needs re
placing, replace It. It might even bo
well to havo n "preparation" day to
antedate tho mending one.
Light gray scrgo is used for the
costume wo show here. The skirt has
an added piece nt lowor part of sides
and back, which is piped at top with
silk of a llttlo darker shado; the but

Choice Is Made Something of
A very Jaunty model for a young
girl is a coat of wool diagonal,
which comes in brown and white, nnd
grny and white mixtures, with plaid
cuffs and button-trimmed Bailor collar.
It Is piped with braid. Another prac

brown combination. It Is semi-fitted,

It has a largo convertible round Bailor
collar which will button high at tho
neck, as well ns with turndown collar.

Novel Emery Bags.
That useful little article of the Bew

peared in the strawberry form can bo

the thornberry, grape and chestnut.
By this it can bo seen that almost

needle worked through this tiny object
will have many minutes ot vexatious
endeavor In drawing the needle
through the obstreperous silks and tho
thicker linens. Many bags have a com

New Ideas In Negligees.
Fashion's latest decree is to use two
thlokneses of messallne or thin silk,
white for tho outside and a delicate
color underneath. They nre separate
