By ANN LISLE.
There was once a Widow who had three
j daughter. The mother doe. not count In
thls story, so having politely mentioned
her first of all. fe may dismiss her and
consider the daughters.
At the moment when our attention Is
directed to them first, Ella, the eldest.
Is H and looks It, quite in disaccord with
a modern woman's way of managing her
years, so that at least five of them shall
not be in evidence. The twins, Molly and
Polly, are 20. look sixteen, and have the
worldly wisdom of a very worldly 80. .
The family Income couldn't by any ef
fort be stretched to buy three girls pretty
clothes and take them into society. Bo
Molly and Polly worked -otit their con
clusion so wisely that . the widow was
all enthusiasm, and poor Ella acquiesced
perforce. The Idea was this:
Ella, who ocuddn't conceivably be a
social lucceas, since she had neither face
and figure, nor manner and charm to
compass It, should prepare herself for a
secretarial position and go down Into the
business world where she should surety
make .money and might also make a hit
with some men who liked the Idea of a
wife with ability better than ability to
love his wife. . ' ,
Clause two of the plan said that Molly
and Polly, .with the concentrated family
Income and whatever largesa Ella chose
to distribute, should go about hunting
for Prince Charming..
Said Molly: "Of course, if we marry
well we'll take care of you, Cinderella,
and if we don't you'll be able to take
care of yourself.".
"And us. too, maybe," giggled Polly.
At the end of the year Ella was earn
ing $25 a week, and Moliy had married
herself off to a youth whose father had
left him fcS.uoo a jtear. At the end of two
years Ella had an Increase of 1 10 a week
In her salary, Molly had twins and Polly
had a husband. Bo everybody was more
or leas happy. . .
By the time Ella was f she commanded
a .alary of K.ObO a year and the respect
all anas) who anew hex. aUi. was
"Aunt Ella" to Molly's twins and to
Polly's son and heir. And every time she
cuddled the babies In her empty . arms
she knew that she was Cinderella indeed,
but a woman withal, and so capable of
all a woman's yearnings.
When Ella was 3C she was earning $10.
OOua year and that salary . proved her
fairy godmother. It bought her wonder
ful clothes that actually made It appear
as If she had a good figure. - It bought
her the services of a beauty specla.lst
that made brightened eyes and fluffy
kalr . and a clear complexion gave her
face the semblance of charm, too.
Ella was free from worry and from
iucUjestion and bad red lips and a Joyous
heart and .'.a reputation ior efficiency
that made men regard her aa a very re
apectabie money-coining machine and so
even as a possible wife. But Cinderella
wanted the Right Prince to fit on her
foot the little . glass slipper of absolute
Just then Molly's - husband - lost his
money and Polly's husband lost his life.
Ella promptly took everybody concerned
to live with her and set about supporting
a large and heterogeneous family that
did not exactly belong to her. Bhe set
tled down In her own mind to being
"Aunt Ella" for life.
And then one night while Molly and the
widow were ' off dancing with Mjlly'e

youngest had convulsions. "Aunt El a"

"Now that the kiddle Is quite safe,
woulj you mind looking at my ankle I
think I sprained it when I ' first began

The doctor looked at the ankle and

At the end of three months Molly's

As for Dr. Johnstone well his bandage
had fitted Ella's little white foot as
snugly a. ths glass slipper that Prince
Charming had put 'on Cinderella's foot
of old. And they had both discovered
how well her head fitted Into the hollow
of his shoulder-and how perfectly their
natures and Ideals fitted them to an
