brought home the invitation from ills
big und genial boss to spend two
weeks with him at bis camp in tho
Adirondacks. Little Mrs. Billy almost
wept with delight, although she haled
o leave their pretty little apartment.
"An anniversary honeymoon," she
told her husband.
"And a raise, with a membership In

and the trip, the visit started auspi

Jill, the Incorrigible seventeen-year-old
Henry twins, took Honey to their
hearts at once, and Billy and Mrs.
Henry waded miles of brook for trout
and bass and came bark to the camp
tired, content, and empty-handud.
"Got to. go down to the village with
this letter, Honey."
"Not In this downpour. Billy!"

Billy bugged her, and hurried off.
Honey tugged the screen around the

snuggled down by the leaping tire.
Some time later she woke to the

Honey went off with her tears and

1 THE LITTLE GIRL
a By HELEN WAITE MUNRO
03, 1932. by McClure Nwpaper Syndicate
Nurbe Crane was really responsible
for It all. When she saw wealthy
Chatles Ladd's room full to overflow
ing with benutlful llowers, she sug
gested that he send a few to "the lit
tle girl across tho hall," who had none.
Big-hearted Charles Ladd gladly act
ed upon the suggestion, without know
ing that the "little girl" wns little
ouly in Nurse Crane's ejes had, In
fact, reached the mature age of nine
teen. "Who was lovely enough to send
me these?" Lois Wilson queried as she
snatched tho roses eagerly and cud
dled them against her cheek.
"Oil, a little hoy across the hall,
who had more than he wanted," Nurse
Crane carelessly said, and Immediate
ly went uway and forgot all about It.
Lois sent n note of thanks the very
next day. She printed It, to make sure
the '"lltle hoy" could read It rather
crooked printing at that appendi
citis. So, of course, he printed his re
ply, and the childlike correspondence
flourished until his broken leg hnd
mended enough to allow lilm to go to
the piazza, the very same day that
she took her first tilp there.
It was Nurse Craue, as It happened,
who Introduced the two, nnd her sur
prise at the misunderstanding was
equal to theirs at finding each other
"Shall I play marbles"' with you, or
will you play dolls with me?" Lois
nsked after the first astonished ques
tions nnd answers were over.
"Either, as long as we play together
nicely and don't quarrel," lie respond
ed, deciding that the hospital was not
quite the drenry place he hnd, up to
now, considered It.
The morning passed quickly, with
exchanged confidences and friendly
comersatlon. So did the next, and sev
eral more following, until the two
felt like very old acquaintances. Then
came a day when henry, pouring rain
made the piazza Impossible. Lois In
her room gave up to the queer bodily
aches und pains that had been grow
ing more and more troublesome
through the night, Hnd to the queerer
heart-ache which had been developing
for several days.
Dr. Gordon looked grove when he
found her so.
Mennwhlle, Charles wns having
troubles of his own. For several days
he had been annoyed by a very un
comfortable little conscience. Now he
began to realize clearly the fact that
lie, an honorable, upright young man,
engaged with nil due formullty to
Miss Sjlvla Preston and receiving
dally dainty notes from her In her
distant home, wns falling deeply In
love with Miss WlUon.
When at last that long, dreary day
had worn to n close nnd Charles wns
trying to forget his perplexities und
settle down for the night, his atten
tlon was attracted to a subdued com
motion across the hall. At last u low
moan reached him. He rang his hell
furiously and a nurse responded. Ills
anlou.s Inquiries drew forth little In
He lay hack on Ids pillow, great
beads of perspiration standing on Ills
forehead. "Lois- Lois," lie wlilspeied,
nnd knew that In losing her lie had
lost his mate the one woman de
signed for Mm.
It wns thus that Nurse Crane found
him when she mude licr morning
rounds. She looked keenly nt his
white, set fuce, smiled a wise little
smile and said seftly:
"I wouldn't worry. She Is better,'
"She I Do you mean Lola?" Charles
sat straight up, regardless of the In
"Why, yes," Nurse Crane looked
puz.led, "Didn't jou know she was
taken worse yesterday and they hnd
to operate In the night? She has been
very low, but her condition Is quite
satisfactory now," she went on, notic
ing the anguished bewilderment In his
eyes, "nnd If all goes well she will
soon bo back In her old room,"
"Did you care so much?" she said.
"More than all the world," he whis
pered, und closed his eyes as she tip
toed from the room.
The days went by with Lois gaining

Wollesley, Hills, aiass. Oct. 7,
1922. Discussing tho statement of
certain bankers that the country Is
headed for another period of infla
tion, Itogor W. Babson today ls-
suod tho following statoment from
his statistical offices at Wollesley
"For readers who are not bankers
and oconomlsts, let me first oxplnin
is a simple language what Is meant
by inflation. Mon who aro ac
quainted with tho Bahsonchnrt ot
Business Conditions know It is made
up of two linos first a normal lino
representing tho permanent growth
of tho country which looks like a
simple up-hill grade nnd a second
lino which looks like tho outline of
hills and valleys. This second lino
represents temporary business con
ditions. For a few years it is abovo
tho normal lino. Whon tho two
lines coincide, business Is normal,
but when tho second lino is above
tho normal lino, bankers say wo aro
having inflation, whllo when this
lino is below tho normal line, bank
ers say wo aro having dotiation.
Just now they say wo aro threat
ened with nnothor period of infla
tion. "Tho normal lino of business Is
dotormincd by tho honesty, lntol
llgenco Industry, and thrift of tho
people. Comparing tho health of
business with tho health of a per
son, wo would say that tho normnl
growth depends upon how wo be
havo and how wo tako caro of our
selves. Tho temporary business
lino, however, is affocted by stim
uli tho samo as our body. A stim
ulant may greatly exhilarate us
but wo know tho offect is only tem
porary and tho reaction afterwards
Is very depressing wo feol much
worse in a few days. This is tho
scientific explanation of tho com
mon saying, 'I feol llko tho morning
after. Thoro aro several reasons
why tho bankers may ho right In
saying that a temporary period of
inflation is at hand. Tho country
during tho past year has been given
three distinct stimulants, which
should artificially holp business and
thoroby cause Inflation.
"Tho first of theso stimulants
was tho Immigration Law passed a
year ago and which was recontly ro
onactod. This Is known as tho 3
per cont Law,, which limits tho emi
gration from any country In ono
year to threo per cont of tho people
now horo from that country. It is
practically a tariff on manual labor.
If continued it will cause n famine
of common labor in this country. It
Is tho reason why tho United Stntos
Stool Corporation and other con-
corns aro Increasing tho wages of
common labor. If this law con
tinues vory much longer it will
cause nn Inflation In tho wngos of
common labor and thereby tend to
bring about a gonoral Inflation.

tions cause an inflation In wages,
and tho tariff an Inflation In prices
so this Turkish episodo may causo
an Inflation in interest rates.
"Theso three factors may causo
temporary Inflation. None of them
howovor, affect tho long swings of
business which are determined by
fundamental economic law. So far
as tho long swing goes, we aro In a
period ot deflation which will con
tinue for some years to como. Ovor
tho long porlod of years the ten
dency of wages prlcos and Interest
rato3 will continue downward.
Howover, It is vory llkoly that this
tondoncy has temporarily been
chocked and wo will havo all the
car marks of a period ot, prosperity
during tho next fow months."

tho Index of tho Bahsonchnrt Is at
tho highest point in over two years.

"Tho Tariff Bill, which was passed
last month, is a second causo of in
flation. Whother or not such a
tariff is good for tho country is n
political question and Is not for mo
to discuss, but? all students nru
ngrood that It is Inrgoly a tempo

Tho tariff will causo an Incroaso in

and Increasing wngos, however do
not mako tho country any richer.
Tho country becomes richer only ns
it has moro houses, mora bushols,
moro tons, and moro yards of goads.
Marking up tho price ot goods ac
complishes nothing. With about a

on tho inflation, hnpponed last week

England has been tho one groat
