prayer meeting and was sottlingdown for
a quiet hour's reading when the little in
st nun out across the hall spoke up, long
George put down li is paper, got out his
keys, and started to see what was wanted,
Still no answer. After u pause he rang
up the central ofllco and demanded,
""What do want, Don? Did you call
the University V"
" N ii-w ! "
"Well, the thing rang, anyway," mid
George returned to his room; before he
could seat himself comfortably again he
heard another imperative
He started and listened, half believing
it was the wind, but another sharp ring
assured him that it was tnc telephone.
Again he could get no answer, and rang
up the central oftlce.
"Hello yourself! What is the matter
" What do you want?"
" I don't want anything," replied Don
" What did you ring the University for,
"I didn't! Havn't rung at all for at
least. an hour! "
"Well the old thing hns been ringing,
and I know it, anil if you don't let up I'll
see about it! " shouted George.
" Oh, go oil" and soak your head, you've
been dreaming," was tbe consoling reply,
and here tho conversation ended.

a dark cornei of tne hall was hugging

all the double.
