„ ‘ H o t-c a k e s !” he exclaimed as he
slid into a chair by the table, -You

merely smiled as she slid the golden-

After the doctor have finished his
breakfast he w e it directly to

The Doctor Goes Away
The follow in g morning Mrs. Daily
entered the sick-room. But it could
hardly be called a sick-room
more, for June was to be allowed to
go into the livingroom aud sit in a
chair until she felt like goin g back
to bed. The first thing Mrs. Daily
did on entering was to go directly
to the windows and roll
tains as high as they would go. That
first time they
since June was injured.
"G o o d -m o rn in g June dear. There,
d o n ’t you think that is b e t t e r ? ” she
asked us the full flood of the m orn

down all the time for an yw ay.”
“ Thank you Aunt
that is certainly better. I nearly for
got what sunlight looks like, but he
is not a fool doctor and you know it,
and if he wanted the blinds down he
had a perfectly good reason.
she said to herself, "A n d I think I
know what that reason was— wish I
knew for su re.”
" I am g oing to dress your arm
for you now June dear, then you can
have your breakfast.
while you may com e o n ' to the liv

to flutter as she looked dow n at the

If hot water cost twice what it does to have
it always on tap, I’d gladly pay it. Actually,
though, the cost is much less than I had ex
pected. In fact, if I had realized how conveni
ent it was to have it, and how little it increased
my monthly bills, I d have installed a continu
ous hot water heater long ago. What I didn't
realize was the lowness of today's special heat
ing rates, and the way the thickly-insulated
modern water heaters conserved heat and cut
