"Flvs dollars?" asked Helen In dismay.
"Will It b that much? With thlt drop
aklrt and all the lace on the waist?"
The woman took the dreaa from the boi
In which Helen had brought It and shook
it out on the .
counter. "Why, wa
never clean amy

Helen hesitated.
"I'm afraid that's
more than I care to
p a y." flushing
slightly. "I didn't
think It would be
over three."
"You couldn't get
It cleaned any
where for three,"
sniffed the woman,
haughtily, putting
the dress back In
the box. "Why, wa
get tJ for a plain
white slip Ilka
that," pointing to
whit mull dress In the ease.
Meekly Helen took the box and hurried
home. This waa the aeoend cleaner's she
had beep to. and they both wanted IS.
Bhe felt It Would be useless t try to get
It cleaned at' any good place for less and
(ha was afraid to risk the oheaper ones.
In her own' room she took out the dress
and spread It on the bed. Whst eould she
do with It? It was bar best afternoon
gown a pastel blue crepe meteor. She
needed It desperately. But It was too
soiled to wear It as It was-and she
couldn't pay 15 to have It cleaned. Slnos
(ha humiliating letter from 'Warren about
the expenses. Helen had grimly resolved
to spend not t cent on herself pen,
gonallv. '
Money for the house and Winifred she
must take from hlin. But money for her
self -she would do without until she her
self could earn It. She hsd written War
ren that she hsd resolved to be Inde
pendent of him as far as her personal
expenses were concerned, and this resolve
she Intended to keep.
But first of sll she must get her clothes
In ehepe. Whatever new adventure any
woman contemplates, her first thought Is
always to first put her clothes In order.
And so Helen was now going over her
limited wardrobe. 6be had had so little
In the last year, and yet she thought bit
terly. Warren hsd accused her of ex
travagance. This little blue afternoon gown she had
wasted to have cleaned for some time,
hut hsd put It off. hoping to have It done
soma week when the expenses were less
than usual.
Abov everything else Helen loved her
gown fresh and dainty. And now this
must be cleaned. She could no longer
-wear H as It was. With a sudden Impulse
she took it out to the kitchen.
"Delia, do you think we could clean
this dress here?"
Delia looked at it doubtfully. "1 dunno,
ma am."
'Well. I'm going to try. Therea a
bottle of cleaning fluid heer that Mr. Cur
tis brought home for his ties, and we've
never used It. I'll try that on some of
the worst places, and if It's good we csn
get enough more to sponge over the whole
"I dunno, ma'am. I don't take much
stock In them cleaning fluids. They most
always leaves a worse spot than they
takes out."
But Helen was not to be discouraged
by Delia's lack of enthusiasm. Delia was
never enthusiastic about anything that
might Involve any work on her part.
It took several moments to find the
cleaning fluid among the bet, lea on the
top shelf In the bath room.
"Why Delia, this sheif is :.!-;! with
dust Get a pan of water an! wipe it oft
and these bottles, too they're covered. "
And Delia grumblingly obeyed. This
was why sha always looked with disap
proval on .any nf Helen's ventures t.1ey
usually ended by making more work for
" 'Cleaning Fluid." " Jie'.en read aloud
from the label. " 'Cleans the most deli
cate fabrics without Injur...
" 'Directum Moisten a soft flsnnel
cloth with the Cleaning Fluid and gently
rub the article to be cleaned. Do not
confine rubbing to the sailed spot; by
going over more of the surface no rlnx
will be left. Will not change color or
injure the most delicate fabric. Caution:
Do not use before an open Tre or gas.
- The Cleaning Fluid Co.' "
Helen first covered the dining room
larger. Hurriedly aha poured out half of
the bottle and went over one whole
breadth of the skirt, hoping that by going
over a large surface and rubbing It dry
the rings would be cleared away. Hut
wherever she sponged with the fluid It
left the same mottled, streaked appear
ance, die used the other halt of the
bottle trying to Improve It, but only made
it worse.
Almost In tears, she shook the dress
out over a chair. Had she mined It?
Oh, It she only hadn't touched It. At
least sha could have worn It at night
even It it waa soiled. Bat now, with one
whole breadth streaked and mottled, she
could never wear it.
"1 told you, ma'am. I didn't take no
stock In them cleaning fluids." said
Delia. "They ain't Don of them no
good." And then, aeeiim Helen was al
most In tears, aha added consolingly:
"But I gueaa you can take them streaks
out If you dip the whole thing In gaso
lineIt's much better than all them
cleaning fluids, and cheaper, too."'
"Oh, can IT' asked Helen eagerly.
"Why didn't I think of gasoline? But
where can ws get It enough to dip the
whole dress In? '
"Paint store. I'll taka two of them
gallon water bottles and get 'em full."
t Half an hour later Delia returned with
the big bottlea ot gasoline weighing down
the basket on her arm.
"My, that's heavy," she grumbled.
"And I had to go three places 'fore they'd
sell It to me."
Helen to kolt Into the bathroom, where
there would be no danger of tire. Empty
ing ono of the bottlea Into a large dish
pan, ahe dipped the whole dresa In. The
odor was sickening. Not wanting It to get
through the bouse, ahe kept the bathroom
dour closed.
In a few minutes tha drees hsd soaked
up tha whole panful, and she had to pour
In the other bottle. Most of this, too, was
quickly soaked up. and the rest was
almost black. Bhe tried to rinse It up and
down, but there was not enough gaso
line left for tliat. The fumes were mora
snd more sickening. She was growing taint '
and disiy. as though ahe waa being
chloroformed. And her hands were red
and smarting.
Almost overpowered with the fumes, she
still tried to swish tha dress around. It
s only a black, wet masa now, and she
could nut tell whether or not the streaks
were out. Vet. with desperate determina
tion sha kept at It. It would be bard to
get more gasoline, and now that sha bad
begun ahe must do It as well as she
could. Bo ahe shaok and awtshed the dresa
ebout until she could stand It no longer.
Then she opened the bathroom door and
staggered out, the wet dress on her arm.
"Get a coat-hanger, quick. Delia, Hang
this up somewhere."
"Why. you're as white as paper, ma'am;
what's the matter?"
"Oh. the gasoline-It waa awful In there.
Hera hang this up quii k-"
Delia took the dripping dresa and hung
It on the wooden hanger. And Helen
fell almost fainting on the couch.
"Open the window Delia. Oh, I'm so
Delia threw open the window and
dragged the couch before It. Helen,
deathly white, was lying almost In a
stupor. Snut up In the bathroom, with
the fumes from two gallona of gasoline,
the effect had been aa drugging and
much more sickening than from gaa or
Thoroughly frightened. Delia wanted
to send for a doctor. But In spite ot the
stupor, the word "doctor' brought to
Helen the thought that had dominated
her through It ail, "the saving of ex

don't need a doctor. I'll be all right In
a few momenta
Aa she lay on the couch by the open
window the horrible sense of nausea
gradually parsed away. Slowly the fresh
air revived her. blew away the worst
effects ot the gasoline, but left her with
a throbbing sine headache, which lasted
the rest of the day.
Delia brought some cold cream for her
hands, which were still red and smarting
from the gisoline. At length she rat up,
"Rrlng me the dres, FKIs. Let me
see bow it came out.'
"Walt till you ftcl better." urged
Delia. "You're dead white yet, and it
ain't dry nohow."
"Oh. it must be dry br this time.

Through the atreeta of Ghent. SiS years

marching from house to house, calling
tor their comrades, snd saying unto them:
"Come with us and let us hear tha wise

Presently they
lined up before
the great curved

stately home and
made it known that
