CHAPTER XI I
Some faint result of his new '
life became stamped ,-Upon him
physically. His skin darkened) a I
shade from exposure to the sun j
and there was a ruddy undertime ;
of color in his cheeks. His mti3c-!
les hardened and the blue of Lis
eyes becameclear-err-Arhew ela$t- j

y, the mark of the city began i
Even his voice- that all-reveal
ing clue to the inner man was
subtly losing its slightly . nasal '
New York accent and becoming '
faintly softer,-more leisurely. .
Inescapably, he suffered from
- All of bis life he had been
used to the clamor of the city-
to the close contact of thousands,
yes millions of his fellow beings.
. Noise and electric lights had been
filling his hearing and his sight
these, he sometimes missed with
a. queer nostraglia when he sat
alonel reading bf a kersonene
lamp (in the large lonesome house.
Bufi never did he yearn for the.
old gang or the fervid sensation
of Berenice Veressi's presence. He
missed human compa . ilp in
general; specifically, he was mere- I
ly enduring the passage of time
until he could reestablish associa
tion with Marian Thorndike. Yet
It was not possible for him to
escape meeting a few of his neigh
bors. He saw them at the general
store and there were haphazard
encounters in the road.
A number of the old-established
families- became known to him by
name and he had a bare speak
ing acquaintance with several of
their men folk. Because he was
the heir of Penfield Paradine he I
was distantly and grudgingly ac
cepted as having some remote
connection with the upper class
but, in practice, it amounted to
nothing. ' C;M53
The truth was that he was n
recluse who cared hardly at all
whether anyone ever spoke to him
or not, so long as he could look
forward to the time j when he
would again see Marian.
The meeting, when it did come,
was sharply unexpected. He was
sitting In the front room with a
hook in his lap; early dusk was
falling and he had not yet lit the
lamp. Tobe, having finished his
kitchen duties, had gone off to
A step on the hall aroused him.
Eddie turned his head and the
next instant he was on his feet
"Marian Miss Marian!" be
taid, amazed and bewildered.
Her face was white-and stain
ed. One of her hands Bought the
Bide of the vail for support, the
other was pressed to her side. She
wore riding clothes, as usual
he had never seen her: In a"dress
except at Penfleld's funeral but
there was a strange and dishev
eled look about her.
It seemed to him as though she
were about to topple and he led
her to a chair, holding her arm.

SUMMER PLA Y SCHOOL
IDEAL FOR CHILDREN
(There the Youngsters, After Year of Study, Can
Rebuild Health and Receive Training in Right

By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D.

Former Commissioner of Health. Keto York City.
TIE annual exodus of boys and girls from the city to the various
Summer camps in the country and at the seashore is well under
way. These children will spend long, happy days in sunshine
and fresh, air, and long nights sleeping out under the stars in the
invigorating pine woods, or near, some wooded
shore. They will build anew in health for the
days to come.
I And it is good news, indeed, to bear of the
Summer play schools to be opened in New York
City, and in other cities, for the Summer months.
In New York alone there are twenty-one of
them. Already 2,000 children are enrolled, and
this means 2,000 children kept off the city streets.
They are in school work made attractive by ex
perienced teachers, using the most modern and

first summoning a doctor. There
was a long red scratch, on her fore

of her hair. Despite her smile it
was evident she was in pain. One

ThO Shadow-Children Meet the

Said. The shadow-children, you re
member, were inside the picture
on the Chinese Plate. They were
invited by the King to the birth
day party of the three princes.
To their surprise they found that
everyone had been invited but
the three little princes themselves.
Klnjg Sum-Tweet-Tee, fbeing very
absent-minded, had forgotten to
invite them. In the meantime
they had gone off on a picnic.
Ting-a-Ling, however set out at
once to ?bring them back.
"You might just as well have
some tea and cake," the King said
As there was nothing else to
do, ;they started to drink the tea
and: eat the cakes.
"Have some more," the King
kept on saying.
All t once Ting-a-Ling came
running in. "I've found them!
I've' found them!" .
. "Where are they?" asked the
. "Upstairs combing their hair."

look for a piece he found to his
dismay that there was none left.
Just then the three princes ent

claimed. The shadow-children- gazed at
them curiously. They were neatly
dressed in scarlet wrappers em
broidered with sunflower-blor-soms.
They were all about the

"Many happy returns of the

one on the forehead. "Sit down

As ;a matter of tact, plenty of

do make informal serviee pleas

successor, however, in the ne&t of,
tables of curious oblong shapes,
strange colors, and slightly differ

and a ' sense of too many tables

Then It's necessary to keep them
all together until needed.
More convenient therefore,-are

The low, oblong shaped coffee
tables are a great convenience and

rather an improvement on the old
