Arthur Faunae returns from an
capedition to the South Pole head-
*d by Simon Overton. According
to reports Overton Is dead and
Faunae receives the leader's hon-
ors. Hath men loved Diane, daugh-
ter of Judge Herford, but neither
had spoken. Faunce because of
his great friendship for Overton.
Faunce brings Diane Overton's mes-
sages and photographs After a din-
j ner given by the judge, the explorer
jf I and Dr. (Jerry uxilk home together.
i'S.I Dr. Gerry slyly suggests that Faunce
)T;| is troubled and that he had best get
^ ! his trouble off of his mind. Later

rule, 1 think. But he hasn’t spoken
He recalled the uigiu, now
nearly two months ago, when they
had walked home together, and he
had admitted his insomnia. Since
then he had more or less avoided
the older man. Gerry had been
so quick to divine his use of drugs
that he dreaded a more searching
scrutiny, which might fathom yet
another recess of his inner mind,
or surprise some secret thnt ha
was still determined to hide.
Yet, as he stood there alone in
the warm and fragrant room -a
room that seemed to express so
much of Diane’s rich personality,
her refinement and taste and spirit
—he recalled Dr. Gerry’s words:
“You’ve got. something on your
mind, and you won’t he any better,
you won’t steep anv anumixr «rt*n
you get it off.”
A sudden impulse gripped him, a
he /potent longing to r.urh out of Um
h<vfiaw, bareheaded as he was, and,
purauing the older man down tha
lane, to pour out the misery that
was destroying his soul.
But even while the fueling—
keen In Itself, and searching—was
passing through his mlpd. Arthur,
Faunce knew that he, would not
yield to It—not nowj * He could
not, for he was moved ply a greater
and more compelllrig force—his
passion for Diane Herford. Be-
tween that and his peace of mind,
or something which he thought
might help restore his peace of
mind, he felt himself unable to

} The doctor rose and pulled him-

“He isn’t fit to tie her shoe!:”
“You’re prejudiced. You didn’t
like his father.”
"Just so! Now you follow my
advice and throw his son over. Di-
ane can do better than that.”
The judge, taken with another
twinge of lumbago, growled.

I Gerry went slowly down the
steps. At the foot he turned and

rustle of her dress startled him
away from the window. He
turned and stood faring her as
she came into the room.

“Diane,” Faunce said in a low ,
voice, urged on by an overmaster-! >•
ing emotion which he tried in vain
to control, “I love you! You know
it. Is it fair to keep me waiting
so long for an answer.”
She turned her head quickly,
hiding her face from him. Deep
and contending emotions swept
over her; yet she was more tran-
quil than he was. She had realized
long ago that her sorrow drew her
nearer to the man who had been
Overton’s comrade, who shared
with her a deep and reverent ten-
derness for his memory. If any
one had a right to her confidence,
her friendship, her love, surely it
was the man who had almost given
his life to be with Overton to the
“Diane, they want me to go back
to the antarctic, and lately I’ve
felt the deepest, the most unac-
countable impulse to go; but there’s
one thing that holds me, that would
make me give anything up—I
moan the hope of your caring
enough to want me to stay!”
She turned slowly toward him.
“Would you think that it meant
something quite different if I said
that I wanted you to go? That I
felt that, the work should be fin-
ished, the victory won?”
He hesitated; his face blanched.
“You want mo to go? You dou’t
care enough to want me to stay
here—where you are?”
“I didn’t say that. I want you
to go because there’s a great work
to finish, because it seems to me
like rounding ont your career, win-
ning the greatest, victory. I—I
don’t want to help a man falter
by the way or step back. I know
he would never have faltered—I .
He looked at her blankly.
“No, he would never have fal-
tered, but—you know. I’ve told
you, Diane—I’m not as great as
he was. I suppose that’s the rea-
son—the reason you can’t feel as
I do, you can’t accept all tb^t I
have to give—my love for you?”
“I want to tell you the truth,”
she replied, looking up at him with
clear eyes. “You know how I’ve
felt about Overton. I cared for
him so much that it seemed to me
I could never feel anything like
that for any one else, but

toward her, his eyes searching hetf

The demonstration at the cottage
on the school grounds is proving quite
successful. Tuesday afternoon, the
first day, a large crowd enjoyed view-
ing the lovely living room, dining
room and bed room, furnished by the
merchants and made lovely and at-
tractive by the ladies.

quite a success and at the proper
time delicious coffee and doughnuts

The saddest sight to me, is the shabby, unkempt, unlovely wo-

years, if the woman is careful and gives her body intelligent care.
