It might not have made your mouth
water that street car picture of corn
breadbut Hope Mawson had lunched
early und lightly, and the yellow
square of corn bread, steaming hot,
with a cup of coffee at the side also
steaming and two nice, neat butter
balls on a butter plate all tills was
pleasantly tantalizing to Hope Maw
son, even though the picture was only
an advertisement tor Folger's corn
meal. Hope was riding homeward on the
street car and the advertisement was
directly opposite her, so it was not
difficult for her to dwell upon the
templing sight for many minutes. Her
meditations ran something like tills:
"Strange that people don't eat more
com bread so Inexpensive and so
nourishing, and as the advertisement
assured, so wholesome, even when it
was eaten hot. That is, of course, If
made from Folger's cornmeal. Funny
why it would be any more wholesome
If it were made from Folger's. It
would be worth trying.
"It was Diana's night to cook din
ner, to be sure, but Hope would stop
at the corner grocery store, buy some
com bread and have It ready by the
time Diana had finished the rest of

used to make It? Two cupfuls of corn
meal and two cupfuls of regular Hour
and some salt and sugar and baking
powder. There would have to be
milk. Was it a cupful or two or one
and a half that Sally used? Well,
Sally didn't measure the milk, she
Just poured It In until she thought she
had got the right batter.
"Funny how those old cooks used to
get such good results without meas
uring. HI st be they had good eyes.
Probably they measured Just as ac
curately as the up-to-date cooking

with their eyes, not with graded
Here Hope's meditations were sud
denly cut short. The conductor wns
calling "Love-a-lavenue," and Hope
knew that Lovel avenue was five
blocks beyond her own street.
She glanced once more nt the ad
vertisement, got what nourishment
she could from the depicted golden
square of corn bread and hurried to
Brandon Jones, who had been sit
ting beside her, rose with her and also
went toward the door. Hope hesitat
ed for a fleeting moment and then de
cided not to take a car back, because
she would pass a grocery store on her
way and could buy cornmeal besides
saving the extra car fare. It was
that cornmeal advertisement that had
made her ride past her street that
must be a sign that her system really
craved corn bread for supper.
She walked three blocks and then
stopped at the grocery store. Oddly
enough, Brandon Jones went Into the
grocery store, watched her ns she
made her purchase and stammered
out with considerable embarrassment:
"Dog biscuits, please," when the gro
cer's clerk asked him what he wanted.
Then Hope proceeded, and the man
proceeded. She saw him from the tail
of her eye saw with approval his
good proportions and easy stride. If
he was following her, as It seemed
nulte likely that he was, lie was the
first man who had ever had the nerve
to do such a thing.
Hope concluded that It was quite an
Interesting experience, as long as It
was broad daylight and the man
looked so harmless.
Then he walked faster and overtook
her, thus putting her In the position
of the pursuer rather than the pur
sued. Rut Hope couldn't help pursu
ing because he went exactly where
she wanted to go. He even crossed
the street where she wanted to, and
preceded her Into the hall of the npart
ment where she and her companions,
Diana and Daphne, lived. The hall
boy spoke and let him pass. Obvious
ly lie was a resident. Yet why, If he
lived in that apartment, did he ride
on to I.ovel avenue?
Hope was Interested In this appar
ent mystery, but not so Interested as
to forget her cornmeal. She quickly
changed from her office (lollies to a
washable house frock, and In five min
utes more had the cornmeal and flour
anil milk beaten up as she had seen
old Sally do so often in her child
hood. After the bread was In the oven and
Diana, now arrived on the scene, had
been cautioned to watch It, Hope
slipped out of the kitchen and Into the
hall. She simply had to solve the
problem of the pursuing and pursued
She rang the elevator bell and when
the elevator boy appeared slipped a
quarter Into bis hand and asked him
who It was he had brought up In the
elevator with her that afternoon. "He
looks so much like a sort of a cousin
of mine that I'm practically certain
b? must be.' said Hope, largely ex
"That's Mr. Jones, miss," grinned
the boy. "He certainly must be a
cousin or something, because he has
Just been after me to ask what all
you-all was named. Would Jones be
the right name. mlsaT"
"It would do," said Hope and then.
"What Is his other name?"
"Mr. Hrandon Junes, mlsa," said the

boy. "Very nice gentleman all the
Joneses is fine folks. Lives in the
apartment just above yours, only it
hasn't any kitchen, because he gets
all his nioals out and the kitchen's
done been made over into an extra
room to hold his books. He's a very
learned gentleman, miss, I should say."
And all this though interesting, did
not any better explain why Mr. Bran
don Jones had ridden on to Lovel
Daphne and Diana declared the
corn bread to be exactly like the corn
bread old Sally used to make. They
were feasting merrily on It when the
bell of the apartment rang. They ex
changed surprised glances, for callers
never came unannounced In that
apartment. Hope lied to the door, and
there stood Brandon Jones.
"Excuse me," he began, and before
he had time to go further with his
npologies he whiffed nnd said: "My,
but that smells good ! I smelled it
way up in my apartment, and that's
why I came. You see "
"I'm sure we all would like to have
you come In and share it with us,"
said Hope, looking at Daphne and
Diana, who had now appeared in the

into the living room, where the large
table had been spread for dinner.
Brandon then explained. He hoped

and had been interested in the inter

apartment, so when she rode past her
street he knew it must be because of
her preoccupation In this advertise
ment. He got off where she did and fol
lowed her into the grocery store, and
to his delight she bought the corn
meal. Later he got the tempting smell
of baking com bread through his open
window above corn hrenrl and coffee.
Just ns the picture had suggested. He
was looking for a good rule for corn
bread he thought perhaps he might
be able to secure hers.
"But why all this excitement nbout

Mr. Jones said It was absurd of him
not to have begun at the beginning
and explained that at first. "You see,
I'm an advertising man Jones &

Mr. Jones," said Daphne, with much
respect, hearing the name of the larg
