The, name of my friend's child
came in an awe-stricken murmur
from my lips as, at my mother-in-law's
behest, I turned from my
, own injured son to the couch
where Lillian's Idolized daughter
lay so white and still that I feared
the life had find from 'her i .'
: Lillian neither spoke nor look
: d toward me, and I followed her
strained eyes to Dr. Pettit's' face.
It was professionally non-commit-
tal. but I saw with an icy little
chill at ray heart that he was
making the usual tests to deter
mine the, existence or! non-exist-
ni Af thn vital snark Itself.
With Lillian's pallid anguished
: face before me I felt guilty at the
joy and relief which were surging
madly through my veins. ' . My
child was safe; apparently, but
hers- I who knew, better than
any one , else how , closely knit
were the hearts of Lillian and her
: adorable young daughter, felt my
own heart chill as I watched the
physician's long, slender marvel
lously efficient hands at work.

: The plaintive little cry'tpre at
me. it any one ever had told me
that I could refuse to go to my
baby when he was injured and
crying for me, ij would have
laughed, scornfully,' unbelievingly
at the idea. But so long as he
was in no danger, and in his
grandmother's royally tender care,
I could not desert' my f riend in
her bitter hour. j
! Dr. Pettit straightened himself,
and Lillian swayed toward him.
"Is she " the words were a
raucous whisper from lips almost
too! stiff to frame them!
"Be Heady to Help."
! "She is alive." He uttered the
words with quick,' crisp, emphasis,1
put out his arm as he did so, and
grasped and ' supported for a
needed second Lillian's swaying;
trembling figure. ' Then as 1 I
moved forward, he put; her intoJ
tny arms and she leaned against
me for an' instant with quick, lal
bored breathing, as if she had
been' running. I remembered the
attacks .she had recently suffered,
and I wondered "how most quickly
and quietly I could get the reme-

tensely under her breath:
Tm all right. Be ready to
help." - - j ' ; v , : :

stood like a soldier at attention
while the physician bent over
Marion again. Even through the
terror of the moment I could not

and one feels as safe as is human

enough as he sot in his corner

handlers. Dundee punched I his
body in the first attack and then
landed left. Dundeo repeated
with his left and forced his right
solidly. Criqui came in for more
punishment, wildly with his left,
but always advancing. Dundee
was much too fast for the French
man, easily evading his futile at
tack and punching accurately
with both hands. Dundee fell
back to his old trick of bouncing
off the ropes, but it netted him
nothing except' laughs from the
crowd. Dundee repeated his trick
twice, this time to good; advan

Frenchman's ribs. He was start

chose to whip his left it came out

opponent. He was warned for
hitting on the break-away. Dun

Dundee battled toe to toe and his
left had the better of it. Dundee

idly that it - was impossible to

leading with his left, but it was
invariably wide and he fell Into
Dundee's arms. Dundee pounded
his head with both hands- in a
neutral corner. The crowd then
cheered Criqui as he resumed his
undaunted advance, but his blows
were woefully feeble. He nearly
fell over the challenger when he
swung a hard right and Dundee
