The Icehouse shown is made by the
use of silo forms. Three doors allow
the Ice to be stored, or removed with
a small amount of lifting.
If silo forms are obtainable, it takes

Dinner in a
By JANE OSBORN
t(), 123, by McClure N.w.pap.r Syndicate.)
To begin with, Gregory Ives merely
knew her as the girl with the green
hat. Site commuted in a green hut for
months. Then she changed to French
blue, and the first night Gregory near
ly missed his train because he didn't
have the usual green hat to follow.
But he quickly adjusted his eyes to
the hat of French blue.
Gregory Ives read what he found
worth while of the evening papers and
got through a good many magazines
besides, because from the time he left
his office until he reached his house
an hour and a quarter later he read
whenever it was possible.
He reached the station a few min
utes before train time and used the
few minutes reading. Occasionally he
would give a quick glance to see
whether the green hat later the
bright blue hat was In sight If he
saw it moving toward the trainshed,
then he knew it was train time.
One evening when Gregory Ives
was especially interested in an article
In a scientific magazine he followed
the blue hat without really thinking
that it boarded the train on the right
of the runway, whereas his train al
ways made up on the left; and it was
not until the train had drawn out of
the great shed and was already going
at a pretty good rate of speed that he
noticed that except for the young
woman In the seat opposite who wore
the blue hat there were no familiar
faces in the car.
Moreover, the conductor as he ap
proached was none of those who usual
ly punched his ticket
lie jiiiiii'H :. looked nhout and
then sat down again.
To the conductor, when he reached
him, he handed his commutation ticket
with an inquiring glance.
The conductor looked at the ticket
and then critically at the man.
"Guess I'm on the wrong train," said
Gregory. "This doesn't stop at Arden,
does it?" ,
"This Is a throngh express," said
the conductor. "We make a straight
run without stop," and he mentioned
a city that was three hours distant
"Don't you stop at Arden even if
there are passengers to get off there?"
camea sharp query from acVoss the
aisle and Gregory Ives noticed, that
beneath the hat there were very pret
ty eyes and face that somehow
"No, we don't," said the conductor
with something of contempt.
"lou used to stop there. You'll Just
have to get the engineer to stop to
night. I've got to get off there."
"Sorry, miss," said the conductor.
"They may have stopped there on re
quest once, but not for a year or two.
And of course we can't make special
"I think that's perfectly outrage
ous," guid the girl as she fumbled in
her purse to get the necessary car fare
demanded by the conductor. Then,
having collected fare from Gregory
also, (be conductor moved on.
"You thought we stopped at Arden,
didn't you?" said the girl.
"I Imagined so," said Gregory. "But
It doesn't make any difference I "
"Doesn't make any difference!" ex
claimed the girl. "It certainly does
make a difference to me. I won't get
home till all hours. It's dreadful."
"I only mean that it didn't make
any givut difference to me," sold
"Well, I think If two persons could
be mlsta! ci like this," said the pretty
young woi inn, "then the railroad com
pany mus: lie to blame. I certainly
thought tbi train stopped at Arden,
and you must have thought so, too, or
you wouldn't have got on It."
"I got on because you did," said
Gregory quite calmly.
".oa followea me I" said the girl
with lw-volced rase.
"I always do. J i n convenient not
you, but your hat. Tiien I can go on
reading or thinking. You usually take
the Ilve-thlrteen. Tills time for some
resson you took the five-ten. I have
Just. loosed It up in my time-table and
th conductor is right. It is not
marked to stop at Arden. It doesn't
Btop again until eight-three."
"I should think you were excessively
rude, If not a little crazy, to talk the
way you have been talking," said the
girl, "If It were not that I know who
yoo are. You're Mr. Gregory Ives and
I mot you at a country club dance
with my brother. lie Introduced you
but yoo ure quite forgotten."
"Not at ill," assured Gregory, lean
ing across the aisle. "Now that I see
you I .'member. You're Miss Fergu
son, S.'ax Ferguson's sister Marcla, I
believe. I merely knew your hat.
Charming hat Most girls wear such
somber hats you cun't follow them.
You always wear something nice and
bright I gut quite attached to that
green one, though this Is charming."
Msrcla Ferguson was frankly
pleased with the rather blatant flat
to: y v) she suggested to Mr, Ives that
tr the seat beside her.
for nice he was quite content not to
"Ne.," he said, "I've told you why
t -jA tu this train. You haven't told
me why yo led me astray. I'm really
"1 was hungry," raid Marcla sim
ply. "It's fombeef and cabbage nigh!
at boms od I hate it and I had a
very skimpy lunch. But we got paid
thle twTioon and well, as I was
coml ig along and looked into the din
ing car on this train I Just was so
hungry that I decided tu hop on and
have dinner on the diner and then get
off at Arden. I knew a man that used
to do that every night
"Then his wife didn't have to bother
having any dinner when he got home.
But I don't think that was nice at all.
I think she ought to have been glad
to get dinner for him, don't you?"
"By all means," said Gregory, find
ing this very young woman quite di
verting far more diverting than any
of the books, papers or magazines that
he had used to read so diligently that
he hadn't even seen the pretty face be
neath the hat
"I had often thought I'd do it some
time. I'd Just have to, because I've
never had dinner on a diner. Have
"Yes, I have," said Gregory, but he
didn't add that it was not his idea of
a great and glorious treat
'Sometimes you can smell the beef
steak broiling," said Marcla. "Um
but It's good I've been in the station
house when a dining car stopped and
I always wished I could get in and
have some. Those cooks, in their
white caps, look splendid, don't they?"
"Yes, indeed," suid Gregory, and
then after a pause, "Well, are you
hungry now ? If you are, let's dine."
"You mean together?" 1
"I'm asking you to be my guost."
"Ars you sure you you can afford
It?" asked Marcia, round eyed. "I
mean, will you have enough to pay
your fare back and still have .enough
to buy dinners? I was afraid I
wouldn't be able to have dinner after
all, because I'd have to save enough
to get back."
"I happen to have ample," said
Gregory, and then, "Will your people
"Haven't any people,' " said Marcla.
"Brother and I live at the boarding
house and he's away. They won't
worry they may talk, at the board
ing house." , . :
At one o'clock the next morning
Murciu Ferguson rang the night bell
of the boarding house where she and
her brother boarded. , She was let In
by the owner of the establishment to
whom she offered no explanation.
Forthwith, Mrs. Prunes began to
speculate and her speculation took an
Interesting turn when she learned
from one of her boarders that she had
seen a young man who looked like
"that very brilliant and rather eccen
tric Gregory Ives" leaving Marcla at
the front door. The boarder had seen
him through her front window.
And so the gossiping began. Arden
became interested. Gregory Ives had
been following Marcla Ferguson and
she, the little minx, led him Into the
wrong train. "Well," said Mrs. Prunes,
when the engagement was announced,
"girls these days have to be pretty
smart to get husbands."
