With a Married Man
"But John Is much mora delicate than
Mr. Curtis, and he s gone kaok and forth
for five yean. We came - out for the
children's sake, and my health'! been

only objection to the country Is thit hi

Helen flushed slightly, for in spite of
Mrs. Baldwin's laughing tone there was
something In her voice thit made Helen
feel she was partly In earnest, and that
she did think Wirnn selfish.
And for a moment Helen could not help
but wonder If iha was right. Shi knew
what tha fnsh country air Would mean
ta her and Winifred. And Winifred had
not bean at aU well this winter.
On the way home she said aagerly.
"Warren, I da like thl Baldwins so much
and haven't they tha loveliest home?
Dear, do you think we could take thit
cottage for the summer? It would be so
good for Winifred. Do you think we
could afford It thl moving and all?" .
"Could afford It all rtght-wouldn't cost
so much. But having to git up every
morning to catch that t;W o'clock train
