says something has happened about
which she wants to talk to me."
Dicky gava a long low whistle.
'Sj if come!" he said, hair-musingly,
and fell to staring Into the
fire. '", :
" I was filled with bewilderment.
What could this thing be which men
aced Lillian's peace of mind., and
about which Dicky appeared to have
foreknowledge? lint I made no at
tempt to question him. I wouid not
force his confidence.
After a long pause he raised bis
head and looked at me fixedly.
"See here," he said a trifle rough
ly. "It Lsn't a particularly pretty
story you are going to hear from

it. But don't let your rampant
Puritanism run away with you.' Re

The hesitancy in hia last words
affected me queerly. It was as If
he were pleading for something or
someone, and rras ashamed to put
his plea more definitely.
: "I fancy I shall look at the mat
ter. whatever It is, from Lillian's
standpoint," I said quietly.
' "No doubt," Dicky returned dry
ly, and then there was a long silence
Evidently he did not feel like talk
ing, and I was too busy with my
forebodings about Lillian to speak
What Troubles Katie?
"You'd better not plan for any
dinner here tomorrow night," Dicky
broke the silence suddenly. "Too
don't know how long LIl's affairs
will take, and If yon don't stay with
her, suppose you come oat with me
for dinner somewhere.
"That will be" very nice" I re
turned. "I will tell Katie about I
at once so that she won't plan any
thing' She generally makes her des
serts early in the morning, even be
fore she prepares breakfast.
. I shrank a little from meeting Ka
tie as I went toward the kitchen. Th
girl had seemed so unlike herself
for weeks past, so morbidly moody
and so prone to gnsts oweepin
that I disliked seeing ner. consci
entlotisly I had tried to find out
what so sorely troubled her, but she
bad hysterically repulsed me at each
attempt, and 1 had finally resolved
to let her alone nntil she should
come to me with her trouble of her
But my resolution vanished as T
entered the kitchen and saw the
faithful girl who had done so much
for me crouching by the side of her
chair, sobbing violently. Jim, her
huband was nowhere to he seen
II went swiftly to 'her side, took
her hands and raised her to her feet
"Katie," I said firmly. '"I want
you to tell me now, at once, what
troubles you. I can't have yoi
grieving like this unless I know what
is the matter. You will make your
self ill tf yon go on In this way. Now,
dry your eyes and tell me about it. .
"Oh,-1 Missis Graham, dear Missis
Graham." Katie sobbed, clinging toj
me with convulsive, twitching hands-.
'I no wont to tell you. 1 have to
tell you pretty qveek. Rut I no ran
joost yet. 'You' send me, awav
qvetk as you know and I want to
stay here Jovit as long as I can."
I almost dropped her hands In
mv amazement at her words. The
wildest conjectures flashed Into m
mind. Had Katie been taking things
from me? Was there a series of pet
ty thieving behind her emotlrm? In
a moment, however. I had drawn her
close again. No matter what she
had done she was Jbut on Ignorant
child, and had been a most faithful
"What nonsense. Katie." I tald
poothingly. "You know It would
take something very bad Indeed to
make me send you away from me
And I'm very sure you havedone
nothing very wrong. And you know.

a strong imagination you have, t
am sure you are making yourself
sick over nothing."
"I T.-ill Yon" . . i
"Dot all right Tor yon to say." Ka
tie returned with sullen note in
her voice. Rut I noted with grati
fication that the convulsive sobs had
stopped, and that she was calmer.

Worn Out In Mind and Body
Your child is quick to observe disturbances in your mental attitude or
physical condition. And when he asks: "What' the matter. Daddy?" .
there a ton of solemn anxiety in his Lttia voice. The depression
stamped upon yoa reflects intensely upon him because of his profound solic
itude, lie at once drops his playthings and rushes to your side, bet hii
happy smile has disappeared and his buoyant spirits are rone replaced
by a countenance of worry and a bearing of hopelessness.
