puted her statement sse advised
me to co to a masquerade gome

"Of course it is," agreed Nath
alie. "Neither you nor I know
who each other is. Just as we
haven't an idea who any of the
people aboot as are."
"Aad yet," pursued the harle
quin, "now don't more out of your
relaxed pose at this but hold It
keep your mask oa as ft were.
And yet I met that same girl out
aide of a Country bank not ao long
ago when she was as good as
masked and knew her at onee.
And then tonight I turned up here
myself with a mask on and danced
with.her and she didn't know me.

Nathalie see him and put it quick

"Noble Indian." he said. "Keep

like that That's fine.
"And while I was at the coun

though I'd drift in here tonight
and let you know what they were.
Fortunately this Isn't a particul
arly difficult house to get into. I

Did you know the woman you took
me away from was my aunt?" She
kept, her pose indolent, as he had
warqed her to, and kept her voice
at a high pitch to match the pose.
"Certainly," he said, "She pro
moted this party. I crashed you
when I though she'd bothered you
enough.. And she didn't recognize
you. Ton can be sure snout , tnac

Her mask covered most of the
blush that rose to Nathalie' face
and in any ease Sloan missed it in
the colored light
"He has been charming to me,"
she said quickly. "Charming and
courteous and kind."
Sloan caught her tone and noted
It but went on nevertheless. -"I'm

f cried. The image of the man at
Southampton flashed into her
mind. Then the reflection came to
her that the nexfcay she would
be free to draw against her bank

her cushions again.

explained, "wha seems enormous

I was talking to Pound. He was so

I'd find out what X could about

'N UNCLELAM sir and food lurk many dangerous enemies of man
kind. Not long ago one of the world authorities oa health said
this: "Every victory over dirt is a victory over diseaseT Germs
cannot breed where there is utter cleanliness.
I wish this were absolutely the fact It it
were, the fight against disease would be much
simplified. Unfortunately, the cleanest of air
and the purest of food may become contaminated.
To prevent such contamination is one of the
chief duties of man..
There is little danger of disease production
from foods which are cooked and promptly eaten.
It is another story with food and drink served
raw or cold. At ordinary temperature the germs,
harmless in limited number, will multiply so
amazingly as fairly to teem in the food.
But it is a fact, that germs thrive in dirty,
dark and dusty places. In this sense dirt is a
breeding place xorthe agents of disease and death.
