wealth. Ralph, on day admire s Daph

Mrs. Haines decides to permanently
eliminate the younger girl, whose ri

a sordid quarrel In the household, and
Daphne, realising the helplessness of
her position, leaves home to make her
way in San Francisco. The quest for
employment Is difficult. She is almost
starving when she encounters Ralph
McKevitt, her stepsister's "prize" young
man. In a clieap restaurant. He buys
. her a hearty meal and takes her home
in his car. As weeks pan a nice
friendship develops between them.
Ralph secures a good position for the
girl, and when he kisses her in the
moonlight she feels she is in an earth
ly paradise. The motley assortment of
roomers at Daphne's house speculate
"wisely" about her each time young
McKevitt calls In his flashy car, but
she finds two good friends In hard-
boiled Flora McCardle and a love-

IT is unfortunate that many persons fill their stomachs, satisfy
their hunger and grow fat perhaps, but still are neglecting; to get
all the food they really need. Far too often we act as if quantity

"Oh, no thanK you ever so

I couldn't really!"
She got away from Flora final

gone from the night. She picked
up the old blue coat, tried it on,
took it off hurriedly, put it on
again. Her heart began to thump.
How late it was getting. She look
ed out the window, trying to see
if it was really foggy. Went to
the mirror, added more powder,
wiped it off again. Back to the
window. He wasn't coming.
And when she had taken off
the new gloves for the fifth time,
and really gave him up, he came.
She jerked off the old coat,
tearing the lining. How had she
ever thought she could wear it?
How had she ever been cold? The
warm blood rushed to her cheeks,
dying them pink. Every bit of her

'Because l m so clever," re

Now this didn't please the oth
ers any too well, for, to tell tha
truth, they thought they were
clever, too. It Isn't agreeable to
think that someone else thinks

so that you can climb on them.
How could you climb on them if
they grew down?"
Mij looked puzzled, and so did
Flor and Hanid and Yam. To
tell the truth, they hadn't the
slightest idea how anyone could
climb on trees If they grew down
instead of up. By and by, when
they had gotten over this a little,
Flor turned to Knarf and asked:
"Why have giraffes such long

twinkling, "If they had short

"He's stuck, "he's stuck!" cried
"Humph," grumbled Knarf,
turning on his heel, "I can't be

all began to laugh.
"You may be the cleverest sha

Melon Season Is Here How to
Slet Good Ones
Some day another Burbank will
lay down the infallible law about
melons and then we shall all go
marketing for them without feel,
ing that melons are just one gam
ble after another. For how can
you tell a good melon?
The old test sticking a specu
lative forefinger into the tip to
see if it yields, means absolutely
nothing. After half a dozen early
shoppers have applied their
thumbs to a melon it acquires a
misleading softness. However
there are a few signs borne by a
good, ripe melon generally, and
these may be of hlp. But no guar
antees! Because sad experience in
dicates that even with these osten
sible marks of quality, the opened
melon is disappointing. But here i
they are for what they're worth.
A cantaloupe, to begin with,
should be very thickly retted. !
When the netting is thin, with'
sparsely covered spots, the melon
mav lack flavor. MpIo
course, merely flavor there's no j
particular nualitv in tha nnln inH I
flavor in melons comes only after
ripening. The best-flavored mel
ons are those'which are permitted
to ripen before being picked. If
picked at the proper time, the stem
slips off easily, and this leaves a
dark scar on the melon. So look
for the dark scar, as another
guide. Also, since a good melon is
juicy, it should be heavy for its
size. If there's a yellow tint under
the netting, that's another good
sign. So is the pleasant aroma sent
The trial of Ellis and Day, co
defendants in the conspiracy esse,
will start tomorrow morning.
"I am the victim of circumstanc
es," Frederickson told a reporter
when sentence had been passed.
"All thin h rrnwn n nf a t4A
and I am 4he victim. But I am ia
nocent of the charge. My enemies
have built up a circumstancial
ease against me that I felt it was
boneless to combat. That's whv I
ehanged my plea."
