"Yea, I know it muat be crowded at

Mr. Marruwn waa standing befor ih

of cunt that ah waa coins to give her

glove on tha bad with a algh. vne of
tha daya when everything gota wrong.
'And one of my beat glrla left me going

that ahe'a through wtlh thle dally grind."
Helea w Httlng br the window pulling

Helen waa uncomfortably conscious that
sh waa telling Mrs. Morrison much mar
than ah wished to. But she waa talk

to tell a person who had been In every

to glv up the room for such a reason.
"Well, of course, I have no cholc," aald
Mrs. MbrrlsonV still coldly. "It s our bust

handed It to Ilele.
"This la a man whom t know wry
