A bell rang outside. There was
the sound of hurrying feet, laugh

going home. The girl in the black
satin dress passed the glass door,
struggling into a soiled white coat
as she ran. A thickset man with
his hat on the back of his head
and a black cigar in his teeth,
opened the door a crack.
"Sit down, baby," Gartz said to
Daphne, who had risen. "You
mustn't mind an old fellow like
me, having a little joke. Now we
can talk nice. I got a nice posi
tion here for a good girl. Thirty
a week. How does that sound?"
Thirty a week! If she had
thirty dollars a week . . . "Oh,
that would be wonderful." she
cried, forgetting her fears.
"Sure," he went on, smiling at
her benevolently. "I know how
much a girl needs to get along
when she ain't living home. You
told me you was away from your
folks, didn't you?"
"Yeh, thirty a week, that's what
I pay, and if you need a little
extra sometimes, you know where
to come. I like to treat everybody
right. Nobody ever said Harvey

ran, knocked over a chair, found

walked a block in the cool life-

Daphne waited. There was the
squeaking and jangling of the ele
vator, the bang of doors opening
and closing upstairs. The sickly
smell of the refuse from the mar

nauseating her. She waited In an
agony of suspense and loathing.

cool of the early evening. At
least the first half hour of it was
pleasant. But it was such a long
walk, up and down so many hills
and the pavement was so hard.
It was half-past seven when she
dragged herself up the front stairs
and groped her way down the
dark hall to her room. -
She flung herself on the couch
to rest a moment, and woke at

I'll speak a little of the defi

ble. A deficient diet, especially one
lacking in the vitamins, markedly
lowers the tissue resistance of the
joint coverings and of the mucous
membranes. It lowers the tissue
resistance of all the organs, but
it is frequently noticed in these
first. Now, a diet may be an over
full one, as it is ln those who are
overweight, because usually, they
eat too many starches, sugars and
fats. This may dilute the vitamins,
thus making them relatively defi
cient, or it may derange the intes
tines so they are not absorbed.
And It not Infrequently happens
that those who are overweight, as
well as those who are underweight
do not eat enough of the vitamin
bearing foods, especially fruits and

These patients are markedly ben

starehes and sugars, (starches are
converted to sugar ln the blood).

frequently I am asked if there are
not certain procedures which will
kill these pesky calories. The only
thing I know of is thrice-boiling
of vegetables, which is done in
some severe cases of diabetes.
Starchy vegetables are thrice
boiled and the waters thrown
away. This abstracts the starch
and, of course, does lower the cal
oric value of the food. But it also
lowers the vitamin and mineral
element content, and is only done
so the patient can have more bulk.
Many believe that toasting
bread destroys Its caloric value.
