' The excellent work of the Salem police department dur

comment.1 During the' progress of the fire 'members of the
department, were in charge of street intersections directing
the excite crowds and cooperating effectively .with the fire
men. Confused drivers of cars were assisted and cars within
the intense heat zone at the sudden outbreak of the flames
were rescued by the "boys in blue." . , . ' .

; By reference to the American Newspaper Directory, it is
. found that Fitchburg manufactures shoes, paper, woolen and
cotton goods, firearms, bicycles j saws, machine knives, foun-
dry and machine shop products, steam engines, bricks, wooden
j toys, combs and celluloid goods,-and that it has car shops and
granite "quarries: It is in Worcester county) on the Nashua
! river, and is 40 miles northwest of Boston. Its manufactures
run into the millions annually. i : i

to Fitchburg, Ma3s but it is evident that it will be hard to
, frame a good one, "acquired by natural processes." because it
is plain that, outside of granite quarries, Fitchburg depends

. GRAHAM ...
As my taxicab l turned into the
farmyard - gate, I craned my neck
to Bee If any of my family were
outside. , ,' ; -.': ' ' .
The sounds ot an ax In the
VdIot north, of the house , told
me of Jim's endeavor to keep QP
with Mother Graham's insatiable
demand for wood - for the fire
place, aggravated' now " by the
most disgraceful .. . dalliance of
Winter with Spring which the
world has seen for many years.
There was no sign of any one
else outside the house, but as the
taxi driver held 'Open the door of

tumbled, rather than ran, down
the steps, and. grabbed my shoul

"Oh, Missis Graham! My Missis
Graham, you : coom. home! You
coom home to Katie!." she caroled
and then with a quick movement
released me and turned tv the
doorway.- ?
: "Cooin, ba-bee; see! Here's Ma

first glimpse -of ''my small son

law's little ways. . When 'she is
particularly displeased at any
thing, and is prevented by the
proprieties from disclosing the
source . of her rancor, she is al-
I ways able to . find some appro
priate pretext for resentment:
That she strongly ' disapproved
of Katie's hysterical trelcome to
me, I well knew, and guessed that
when the girl was out. of hearing
I would listen to a recital ot her
disapproval in several volumes' ot
many, chapters each. Pending
that hectic time. X was curious to
see just what discipline she would
mete out to me for my little
maid's effusive welcome. ; ' "? '
I had not long to wait, fof
when with a cordial greeting to
her, I stopped " into : the hall and
stoopetr to pick up my little boy,
she swept him behind her with a
superb gesture, and faced ' me
with grim, critical face. ' ' j
-"Margaret, are yon crazy to kiss
and embrace this child without
first changing your outer clothing
and washing your facs and
hands? .How do you know what

'..There was Just enough truth in
her . words to make me : flush
painfully with a sense of guilt.
Usually, I, too, take ' the precau
tions she had named. But even
at I prepared to obey her man
date, I wondered grimly whether
she. wouldn't have forgotten some
ot her precautions if Dicky, not I,
had been the unexpected visitor.
l it took all the grace I had to
speak in conciliatory fashion . to
her, but I finally managed it.

up'the stairs. . Junior's -disappointed
little wail tugging at my
heartstrings. "Be a good boy.
Junior." I tossed back at him en-
couraeinaly. "Mother , will be
right down, and we'll play."
Plays - lots?.' he ' demanded
drying his tears. "And lots of lor-
ings?" ;
I choaked a bit as the familiar
little request floated up to me
"Lots of loTings," is the quaint
phrase which Junior gives to
cuddle in my arms with its accom
paniment of caresses and hum
mln. To mv starved heart it
seemed 'years Instead ot weeks,
since I thus had held him.
"Just oceans of Llovings!"
nromised. as I hurried down the
corridor and into my room.
There, determined to give my
mother-in-law no cause for criti
cism. and actuated by my own
common sense as well, I made
complete change of clothing after
had bathed my face and hands

had left at home, and whieh never

Then, with happy rushing feet
was down in the 'living room
with my arms ' extended '- to
ward my little la,'; who was
prancing impatiently inside the
restraining arm , ot his grand
mother. She made no movement
to release him, hoever. Instead, j
she eyed me critically.
"You look to me as if you had
a cold, Margaret." she said. I
don't think you should take this

said. "Well. Mac. what could a

"Ay." said Macfarlane. "but we

Young Harold was altogether

please his teachers.' . Punishments
were tried without any apparent
effect upon the hoy. until at last
the headmaster decided to mention
the lad's fault In his monthly
report. So the -next report to
Harold's father had these words:
"Harold talks a great deal."
