Chapter 12
HONEYMOON
THE physician laushed. "Bevlns
la a bull headed old rascal," he
admitted; then, with concern, "Are
you 111 too?"
"No, but I am worried, and what
r ilka tn k von ahouldn't be dis
cussed over the telephone, only I'm
afraid I won't Bleep until I receive
the answer."
"Better ask then; be said he'd
worked you pretty hard."
"Doctor Kelly, I'm engaged to be
married, and If Big Tom Is In a seri
ous condition I feel I should wait.
He told me he was liable to die any
minute"
"Well, aren't we all? Walk against
a trafflo light, work overtime In the
hot sun, do any one ot a number of
foolish things and see what hap
pens." "You mean?"
"With proper cautloa, no more all
night vigils and particularly with
common sense where his emotions
are concerned your friend may live
in ha a hundred. There Is nothing
In his present condition to warrant
your putting oft your wedding. Now
igo to sleep."
"And so they lived happily ever
after," quoted Judith Lane Dale, aa
she lay on the sand, staring at the
blue of a late September sky. "Norm
. . . "member how fairy tales always
used to stop with the marriage of
the mysterious prince to Cinderella?
Clla says they stopped there because
fairy tales had to have happy end
ings, and If they'd gone on any fur
ther there wouldn't have been ..."
Judith found her mouth gagged
with a rubber .cap, "Don't start
preaching Cllalsms on your honey
moon," admonished Norman, "Aside
from being poor taste It disturbs my
reading these. ..."
He had been going through a hand
ful of mall brought to the beach by
Llgo from the honeymoon cottage
where Delphinium presided and per
slsted In her efforts to "fatten thet
skinny chile."
"Here's a note from the contrac
tor, Judy, he says we can move Into
Hlllendale by October 16th, that's
three weeks away , . . and 'Will Mrs.
Dale be contented with white picket
fences? The stones won't be avail
able for two months and Farmer
January's cows came In and ate the
evergreens Jimson plsnted and now
January wants us to pay the dam
ags'n.' "
"To our evergreens?" demanded
Judith.
"No, his cows."
"Drat January, Norm, our living
room drapes are exactly the color
of the Oulf out there at the horlion
line, aren't they?"
"And here's a note from Mathlle,
says Big Tom Is feeling tine, they're
going on up the coast."
Judith sat up "So Tilly writes
my man does she? Look here," she
showed Norman an envelope across
which her name was scrawled In
heavy masculine writing, "Your wo
man gets written to by Slim San
ford." "Nice chap, I like him," observed
Norman, then with a quick laugh,
"n. need to return the compliment,
coma on Judy, I'll beat you to the
third breaker with a two minute
handicap."
JUDITH came up through the third
" breaker even with Norman and
together they swam beyond the surf
to float latlly.
"Norman," Judith rolled over and
began to tread water, "how's your
mother enjoying the cruise?"
"Well," observed that young man,
"she said they put on a Havana to
Miami tournament of contract and
she won seventy-five dollars. Need
I ssy more?"
Judith laughed. They swam on un
til another question came to her
mind. "Norm, It certainly was gen
erous of her to give us Ltge and
Delphy. I feel like I'd always known
them."
"Generous, my eye," ha retorted.
"Mother's suite Isn't big enough for
our fulldloBsomtd Delphinium to
turn arousd without knocking over
card tables.
Judith sntred aa she went un
der, then came, p salt water Her
ring ber rtl'.s.
"Clla says. Js:io Allen told ber

SPY RECRUITER
(ED AT U. S.
!T,
PARIS, March 34. (UP) The am-
sing trail ol the International spy rlnn
disclosed through ths Swlta case led
today to Roosevelt flying field, out
side New Tork City.
Robert O. Swtta, young American
flier, told French authorities that he
first became Interested In spy pro pet
als while employed as a stunt filer
at the Dnlted States airport.
He said that he entered esnlonege
work through a Rusaltn acquaintance
at the airport, but claimed to hsve

Norman started to tread water.
went under a wave and coming up ,
looked as dignified as a young man j
might look under the circumstances, i
"Judy listen. I've never had any
Idea of marrying Matilda. As for
mother's coming to live with us If
I had . . . well Tilda's the only per
son she's never been able to whip at
bridge and life would have been one
long tournament, and I don't like
tournaments."
'
Judith wasn't Jealous of Mathlle
Bevlns. Bhe assured herself ot this
the day they moved Into "Hlllendale .
Cottage." However, she didn't un
derstand why, with thirty-one days
to October, Mathlle had to chose
that particular day for the Naiad to
dock at the turning basin.
Someone had to drive down tor
Mrs. Dala, senior, and someone had
to stay at the house to attend to
the last moment affairs. Judith pre
ferred being at the house.
"This sho' Is a pretty bouse, Miss
Judy," wheezed Delphy, sinking Into
a deep chair In the 'lvlng room, with .
the easy familiarity ot one "bo'n t'
the family."
"And you like your quarters, 1
Delphy? How about Llge, Is It go- I
Ing to be too far from town for 1
him?"
"Laws no, that boy be kin get up
a one man crap game, an' Its a sight
easier on me when he loses to bis- j
self." . I
She looked but on the long room
with Its quaint fixtures, pale yellow
walls and sea-green drapes.
"Seems right nice llvln' here with
furnlchur I been pollshln' thirty
years. Member how Ma's Anthony
brung It long from 'gin la. Mil Dale,
tho' she don't need no furniture
'ceptln' a csrd table. Many's a time
I said 's a shame she weren't bo'n a
man so's she could put that there
mind o' hers to buslnes -Some wo
men ought to have a dozed chllern
or a boardln' house to keep them
busy, and she's one."
Judith smiled a small secret smlla
as she thought ot Clla "Mrs. J. An
thony Dale," Clla had said, "Is a fine
example of a good business woman
finding an outlet for her talent In
social piracy."
A FEW nights later, In the throes
of giving her first formal dinner,
she thought again ot what Clla and
Delphy had said. Trembling with
fatigue and excitement sbe sat be
foia her dressing room table trying
to fasten the strap of her beige vel
vet gown.
Twenty guests , . . suppose one or
two were late, didn't come . . . Llge
must remember Big, Tom was to
have only water, no wine, no coffee
, . , and afterwards, the orchestra
was to begin with the Venetian
Suite , , , Dolores looked so lovely
behind her huge harp , . , she men
tioned this to Norman, who was
struggling with his tie.
"Reminds me," he said, "I'll put
up a card table In tbe den, that's far
enough away so the few who have
to have their bridge won't be an
noyed." '
Judith looked Into the mirror.
Would the time come when she
would be like this mother ot hlsl
Would marriage and motherhood
leave her life so empty she'd want
to return to the business world out
ot sheer boredom?
Norman and Judith spent theli i
first Thanksgiving with the Bevlni '
and as fond as was Judith ot Big
Tom she began to look upon hli
family as files In the amber of hei
honeymoon.
But Thanksgiving was not as mo
notonous as Judith had anticipated.
Big Tom's delight at having hei
there made up for Mathlle's Insist
ence upon monopolising Norman,
and when the engineer, so clearly
showing the mark ot Illness, took
her Into the library to show her
miniature dam he had constructed,
she became completely absorbed in
the project.
And then time passed an" some
how It seemed to her she had always
lived there; had always beeu mar
rled to Norman, There was uothlng
in watching the mantel clock tor the
hands to point to the hour his car
would purr up the driveway and she
would meet him at the door, to re
mind her of the lonely nights In ber
apartment.
The unity of their lite and love
was so perfect she made no attempt
to analyse It, or fear tt too perfect
to last.
And then, like the shattering ot a
fragile prism, came a telephone mes
sage tn the midst ot their Valentine
party.
Tom Bevlns had dropped dead.

First County Nurse Here
For Visit Recalls Crude
But Enthusiastic Clinics
CMnlec were JhW on back porchea
ami dining room tables the health
department's equipment consisted of
a scales, a sheet and an office table,
and her open Ford "Ichabod," when
Mrs. John O. Thomas, visitor here
from Jpneau, Alaska, was Jackson
county's first health nurse.
So Mrs. T.homw, the former Marie
Falldlne, recalled this morning, while
eazlng over the Alex Sparrow memo
rial clinic, center of Jackson county's
health program, now one of the fore
most In the state.
Eleven years ago Mrs. Thomas left
Medford for Alaska, but before go
ing, according to present oounty
health workers, she laid the very
Important foundation from w.hlch the
public health program here Is still
progressing.
She did the Important pioneering
and, although she declines to admit
the fact, it la easily determined from
her reminiscences, which reveal that
Jackson county residents have always
been In sympathy with demands for
better health.
"The program couldn't help suc
ceeding," Mrs, Thomas declared this
morning, reviewing the early days of
organization; "the people were all so
wonderful. We found splendid co
operation In every community. There
must have been problems, of course.
But as I look back on It all today I
can't remember any opposition."
The late Dr. T. J. Malmgren of
Phoenix was county health officer
when Mrs. Thomas came to Jackson
county as a, health worker, hired by

Wm. W. P. Holt of this city later as
sumed the work and It was with him
later that she carried on the clinics,
then possible.
Health work had been organized
In Vils county under the tuberculosis
society In 1017, this being the first
county to achieve the organization.
It was later that Mrs. Thomas be
came the regular county nurse to
handle the general health program,
working in co-operation with the Red
Cross In welfare projects. Her head
quarters were In the Sparta build
ing and her equipment was as pre
viously listed. She traveled in her
Ford, known throughout the county
as "Ichabod," to all schools and. nu
merous community groups were or
ganized, which are row carrying on
the work ae committees and units of
the county health organization. There
were 83 schools on her calling list
and community groups were organ
ized before fthe left here In: Ashland,
Central Point, Medford, Gold Hill,
Rogue River, Phoenix, Talent, Butte
Falls and Jacksonville.
Among persons closely allied with
the first endeavors In the direction
of better health were Mrs. Alice Hol

Rose Scheffeleln, Mrs. H. L. Nob! It
and Mrs. Lewis Ulrlch in this city,
Mrs. D. Perozzi and Mrs. Sam Mc

ment of the program. In each com
munity women of the same spirit
made extension of the program to
all limlta of the county possible.
The outstanding thing In the pro
gram here, to me, today," Mrs. Thom
as added, "la the continued Interest
of those group that have functioned
In tbe communities."
She then added that she had gain
ed the Impression in other sections
that Jackson county's health pro
gram Is outstanding In the state.
From Medford, Mrs. Thomas went
to Juneau, Alaska, where she par
ticipated in health work among the
whltea and the Indians until she
became Mrs. Thomas and resigned In
favor of her home.
She expects to be a guest in Med
