Mrs. V. L. Selby. The wedding
plans are indefinite.
Miss Gamble, who is one of our
most charming young girls, is a
graduate of Briar Cliff Manor and
also studied at the Art Institute
in Chicago for a year. Preferring
more serious things than the social
whirl, Miss Gamble has occupied
an important niche in the business
world for the last year.
Lieutenant Selby is a graduate cf
the Central High school and was en
tering his third year at Cornell
when war was declared. He en
listed as a private, but soon won
his bars and was stationed at Syra

ties, also of the Cornell Musical
club. The young officer is spend

PEGGY was shocked to see the
damage that Blooey the Giant
had done in celebrating his
victory at checkers. Half of the
beautiful palace was in ruins, while
broken Frigids were scattered all
over the place.
Out she soon found that things
were not so bad as they looked. A
cloud that happened to be drifting
by was seized by the uninjured
Frigids and quickly attached to the
palace, forming a new and handsome
wing in place of the part that had
been wrecked. As for the broken
Frigids, they were just stuck to
gether again, and soon were as good
as new, all except one chap who
had happened to get put on wrong

from beneath the palace, a great

came tumbling down.
"This is too much," exclaimed
Queen Crystal, much exasperated.
'I wish I were ten thousand times
bigger so I could give those playful
monsters a sound spanking. When
you tame them, you just give them
a few extra slaps for me."
Peggy was growing less and less
anxious to tackle the Giants. She
was afraid that if they tore her to
pieces, she couldn't get herself to

Peggy hesitated. If walls couldn't

she have to escape if they came
after her? But her curiosity got the
better of her fears. She nodded her
head and Queen Crystal led her to a
pipe sticking up out of the ground

really was a periscope and that by

My Wedding Day.
Another day! Why did he do it?
Only to give me one day more of
agony. Each hour with him be
comes more and more unbearable.
I heard both Mrs. Writer and
Frederick up and around the 'house
at 7:30. The cook tapped softly at
my door and I called, as softly, to
bring in my coffee.
"Tell the folk to have breakfast
any time they choose for I did not

"All right, Miss Dorothy," she
I had determined to make this, my
wedding day, the shortest day of my
life by sleeping hours away. When
I finished the coffee and glass of
water, the cook went out, closed the
door and I turned my face toward
the open window.
At 10:30 I heard them talking in
the next room and I listened.
,"I wonder if she is ill?" asked
Mrs. Writer. "Pefhaps I had better

"Is she asleep?' asked Frederick.
"Well, I suspect we had better
