Helen was down
on her knees pack

trunk with nervous
haste, while War

patiently up and
down. He had Al
ready packed and
wrapped his two
suit cases, with
win precision. But
Helen was - still
struggling to get

and Winifred s things.
There bad been time to pack very care
fully before they left home, and even

to unstrap it. "Here give them here!"
ungraolously. He shoved the slippers
among his brushes and the waist In with

"Wrap It up then. I won't have that
Muff over everything."
"Now, that's all I've room for," as he
sloeed and restrapped the case.
Helen was crushing in the last few
things with desperate disregard of how
they would look when taken out.
"Now, if you'll help lock It," as she
out down the lid, which lacked several
Inchea of closing.
"You can't get that down. Borne of
those things will have to come out."
"But I've no place to put them. Oh,
dear, we must get this closed. Walt, I'll

After much struggling it was finally
:losed and locked.
"Now, come on down to breakfast
We've only about twenty minutes left.'
"Oh, Warren, I won't have time for
breakfast. "I've all these little things to
put In the handbag. You go on down
don't wait for me. 'I'll get something
when I get home."
"You'll do nothing of the kind! You'll
come down and have some breakfast now
There's no sense of your fooling around

As Helen swept the last article Into the
handbag the porter appeared for the bag

steamer trunk and suitcases out into the

"I Just wanted to be sure we haven't
left anything. Oh. wait, here's my rub
bers on the closet shelf. Now, where will
I put them?"
"Put them on," curtly. "That's the
easiest way to carry them."
Mlnnls, the nurse girl, had alreadv gone
down with Winifred and a small satchel,
and was now waiting for them on the
veranda. In the dining room the break

their vacations at the hotel, had the op
To Helen, with her home and wife-
lovlng instincts, a woman struggling
through life alone seemed more or lens
pathetic. And now she felt there was
something wistful in the eyes of these
two old maids as they watched Winifred,
who was holding tight to a small Teddy
bear. A sudden sense of gratitude filled
Helen's heart as she thought of how
much she had compared to these women.
Her husband and her baby! Ah, yes;
that was a great deal! She was proudly
conscious when Warren helped her and
the nursemaid out, and then courteously
held open the 'bus door for the two

And now the sound of the in-rushlng

pushed Helen mark roughly. "Don't you

"You'll be covered with soot."

She moved over while he put his knee
on the seat and strained at the window.
Still it refused to go up.
"Oh. than never mind, dear." seeing he
was losing his temper. Wslt until the
conductor comes by."
But to be thwarted In any effort always
Incensed him. And now as he threw his
whole weight against It, his hand slipped
and hit sharply against tbe woodwork.
"Oh! I'm so sorry did It hurt you?"
He rubbed his knuckles with a muttered
"Oh, dear, you've skinned the knuckle.
I'm so sorry. There's some witch haxel

He shook her hand from his arm. "No,
I don't. All I want is to be left alone.
You're never content with things as they

Helen bit her Up and turned to gate
out at the flying fields, blinking hard to
keep back the tears. And she only asked
him to raise the window!
She was conscious that the two old
maids, who had taken a seat a little
further back across the aisle, were watch'

so loud that even through the noUe of

Now, aa the ordinance In regard to

The second point to which I direct my
readers' notice Is that at the theater a
