JUDITH'S ALLY
IUD1TH laugbed "thanks, Clla,
J but I don't mora In with you
until we can afford a cook. Now,
have you everything you want on
, the will contest?"
"Yes , . . say Jude, I don't see bow
you can lose."
"We can't It Lamnere hasn't some
underhanded tricks up bis sleeve.
"How long will It take you to get
down there?"
"I'll be In San Antonio In tb
morning, change for Laredo, and 1
bould be In early In the afternoon,
then ('II wait for the work train
leaving for the dam. We rebuilt the
spur, you know. Had to have It to
carry supplies In."
'Think I'll come down and spend
my vacation with you . . there's
Llge signalling you . . . and there's
your train . . . you better go to the
train and I'll handle Llge."
They started towards the train,
and on tbe Inner platform, found a
bllarloui; crowd gathered about the
colored people's waiting room.
Cunard looked over their beads
and smiled "some old mammy's
bag baa burst Its straps and she's as
mad as bops," be explained. -
Judith and her party started to
push through the confusion of mill
ing, last moment crowds, then
above tbe medley of puffing engines,
rattling cars, train calls and chatter,
beard something which brought her
to a stop.
"Black boy," warned a familiar
voice, "If you al's much as lay a
finger to that can a choc-late, I'll
skin your bide often you with this
bere busted strap."
Judith deserted the others and
darted back through the crowd. Her
suspicions were Justified for there,
guarding a huge "telescope" whlcb
bad spilled Its contents onto tbe
pavement, hovored a perspiring, be
wildered Delphinium, resplendent
In black taffeta gown and towering
purple bat.
"Delphyl" cried Judith.
The old woman looked up "I
tole Llge that strap wouldn't bold,"
she complained.
"Delphy, what are you doing
hero?"
"Ue gwlne 'long wltb you, Mis
Dale. Think I'm lettln' you go-long
down there 'mongst a lot a Mexicans
with nothln' to eat but mantillas an'
holy beans?"
"Tortillas and frljoles," corrected
Judith automatically, and then she
laugbed, for alongside of the can of
chocolate was the familiar red
brick.
With the belp of a rod cap, Del
' phy repacked her bag and roped It,
then made for her car "I'll be
'long back to see you Is settled," she
promised as she was hoisted up the
steps.
Tim train pulled out. Judttb
leaned a hot cheek against the
cool pane. They left the train yards
and began moving slowly through
a mate of little houses.
Twilight eased down, children
played In and out of the blue circle
of street lamps, then there were
fields with Just an occasional farm
house, yellow windowed against
their black background.
Judith turned from the window,
everywhere she looked she found
evidence of home life. She turned
to an ultra modern magaslno Clla
had contributed, At least bere
she'd find no saccharine ending,
she could depend upon something
astringently truthful, something
wholesomely bitter. She skimmed
through and tossed It aside In dis
taste, the slorlea In that might be
true to the exception, but net to the
lives of those people In the little
bouses.
Delphy waddled down the aisle,
held laughing conferences with the
car porter and waddled awsy again.
When the porter made Judith's
berth, she was surprised to find one
of her own fluffy blue -checked
blankets on top. She had no more
than settled under It when Delphy
appeared with her Inevitable cup of
chocolate.
"Spilled tbe first one," she
wheetcd. sitting down on the edge
of the berth carofull, "so 1 got that
nice lookln' dlnln' car captln f
carry this long down to' me."
Judith sipped the hot chocolate
and thought of the nlgbls she had
gone through this little ceremony
since her marriage. The night table
with Us circle of shell-pink light
and lust outside the circle, Delphy
standing waiting for the cup to be
emptied.
No question but the love and care
tbe old woman had given ber bad
brought ber renewed health and
strength. Could It be that Norman
realized this and bad sent ber on
to care for ber?
Colored servants rarely saved
money, they were too eager to live
each day to Its fullness and Delphy,
Judith knew belonged to a number
of lodges and "Burial Associations"
which drained her purse with their
fees and sociables.
"Delphy," questioned Judith, aa
she replaced the emptied cup In tbe
saucer, "where did you get tbe
money for your ticket?"
"I got It honest," she said at
length, and then she began to
chuckle, "Yas mam, I shu' got It
honest."
Judith laughed with her "I
wasn't questioning your honesty
Delphy, I was Just wondering.",
"Well sub," she confessed, "1 got
It shootln' crap with Llge. I beat
him."
Judith continued to laugh, but
there was heartache In her laugh.
Norman hadn't sent Delphy along.
"What do you think Mr. Dale will
say when be hears you've left him?"
she Inquired.
Delphy sobered "I ain't carln',"
she said bellgerently, "I brung him
up good,- now be kin git along.
Llge'H take card of blm, you's my
sponsreblllty."
JUDITH found her purse and re
funded the money. "If you art
going to work for me, I'm going to
pay your expenses," she Insisted,
"don't worry, I have a Job, we'll
have to keep our expenses within
the amount I make, though,"
"There," said Delpby triumphant
ly, "I tole that Llge you didn't have
no millions of dollars. He read In.
the newspapers you had but I
know better. What kind of a bouse
we goin' to live In?" sbe Inquired
wltb Interest.
Judith sighed. She supposed she.
should send Delpby back. Sbe
wasn't young and perhaps sbe
couldn't stand living In a tent. They
would have to send for a big one.
"We haven't a house, Delphy, Just
a tent, a small one, until I can send
for another."
"One of them dog tents?" Inquired
Delphy with Interest.
Judith laughed "No, not a pup
tent, we'll wait and see, before we
worry, won't wo Delphy?"
"Sure will, now vou ao-lonz to
sleep. You's been lookln' plncby
since Ma'ss Tom died."
The next day seemad endless to
Judith. After the tropical beauty
of San Antonio, the plains, even
with their wealth of purple-beaded
blue bonnets, were monotonous.
She, wanted to turn back to Norman.
She wanted to oxplaln why she had
acted as she bad, to let him explain
his actions. They had never dis
cussed the Bevlns will, they had
avoided It like cowards. Perhaps If
they talked things over they might
have reached an agreement of some
sort.
At Laredo she changed ber smart
traveling frock for the khaki outfit t
she wore In the field, then waited
for the work train. It came In and
the orew gave ber blgh welcome and
encouraging news of the dam city,
which had been called "Big Tom"
by the men who worked there.
"Got your eyebrows on straight?"
Inquired the engineer qulsilcally as
the train approached the dam.
Judith looked up "You can
always dopend upon their being
straight," she said, but she looked
Into her purse mirror to make sure.
The train stopped. Judith started
to step out of the cab. There was
quoer stillness outside, the kind left
by the suduen stopping of vast ma
chinery.
Judith looked down. Below her
was a sea of faces, a patchwork of
sunbronsed faces on a khaki background.
For a moment she stood as
though paralysed. These uitn . , .
hundreds of them . , . r.omen 100 on
the fringe of the crowd . , . children
hoisted to tall shoulders . . . they
were there to greet her.
For that moment she couldn't
speak, and then Impulsively she
pulled her hat from her head and
held It high.
"Howdy gang!" she shouted.
The response came back In a roar,
hip hip-hurrah, htp-hlp-hurrah,
hln-hln hurrahl
Thrice It rang out over the desert
land and the dam sent back a falnl
echo aa though some ethereal volet
were Joining In the welcome.
Then In mighty paean cams
chorus "Miss Judy, our Mlsi
Judy!"
And faintly "our Miss Judy.
They stood now In silence waltlni
for ber to speak. Someone had light
ed a flare and stood beside her.
