"Of course vou'U stay to dinner,
slilldren," 1 observed to Neal and
—trying iot to let feminine
lentimentality find any flaw in this
happy occasion because once on a.
ess happy occasion Neal and Evvy
come together for a betrothal
"You bet we'll stay," agreed Xeal
leartily. "If ever I wanted to shake

old Phoebe of Jim's part in win
ling freedom for him from Evvy.
lut that was a subject on which 1
mow I'd always have to be silent,

o long, I had been so terrified up
o the very last for fear she was go

And I imagined it must be a far i
nore tender one to Phoebe, whose
lappiness had depended entirely on \
ini's coup. Suppose it hadn't been i
ticcessful—suppose Evvy hadn't !
eleased Neal? I couldn't think J
bout it calmly, much less dream of '
nentioning it.
So my surprise was overwhelm- I
ng when Jim got home, and Neal i
ushed to greet him with a laugh- I
"Hail, Jim the giant-killer! I'm
our brother now, whether you like l
t or not. Your brother twice over, i
'hoebe's"— Then his laughing I
qjee broke, and he said with a I
uaver strengthening to pride that i
efied the world. "Phoebe cares for
tic—after all, Jim, the way I do for !
icj. We're going to be married."
And Phoebe, tumbling into Jim's 1
rms with something between a j
a ugh and a sob, cried:
LOU got him back for me, didn't I

Jim, hugging Phoebe and pump- I

mbarrassed by that frankness. I

successful result of hard work, covering years of

Neal were facing the future so hap
] pily and securely that they weren't
afraid to face the past and all the
| difficulties that had separated them
I for so long.
"Has any one asked Jeanie to the
I family dinner or told her the
I news?" Jim asked suddenly.
I had been waiting for this—and
dreading it. Even if every One else
had forgotten that Virginia was
Virginia and that pride was part
lof her, I hadn't. I wasn't looking
| for a miracle to make her accept
Neal joyfully. But it seemed to
me Jim was the person to deal with
her. So I made my suggestion:
"Jim, why don't you go over and
get Jeanie? While you're calling
for her I'll attend to our festal
board have a conference with
Angry, I mean. And that will give
the kiddies a quiet hour together.
Tell Virginia dinner won't be till
seven-thirty, so she'll have time to
break any other engagement and
make herself tine for the occasion."
"Good idea. You phone her that
I'm on the way," agreed Jim—add
ing jovially a word or two that set
me to thinking. "Of course wo
ought to have Virginia Phoebe's
legal guardian—at. the party."
"Why, I thought you were" I
began touchily. "Surely the brother
ought to be head of the family."
"Yes. only brother wasn't of legal
age when a guardian was needed."
said Jim, adding with a sunny snnlc
that only stressed his devotion to I
his sister Virginia: "Not that I'd 1
have minded stepping aside for
Jeanie if I'd been twenty-four to
her twenty instead of the other way
round. Jeanie has a level head—
far more so than mine, I'm think
"Y'ou'll have to go some to prove
to Phoebe and me that any one in
the world has a better head than
you Jimmie, my boy." beamed Neal.
So, with grins and mutual ad- i
miration all round, Jim left us. i
When I went in to call Virginia j
her lino was busy. On the whole !
I thought it just as well for Jim
could surely manage her better face
to face than I could over the phone.
Still I made a second effort in the
intervals of getting out my beautiful
new damask tablecloth and plan
ning the courses of the sudden din
ner party with Angy.
A properly subsidized elevator
boy rushed round to the florist's for
posies. Bertha fell to polishing
silver and shining glassware with
complete good will and lots of
muscle power. I whipped cream and
sliced peaches madly and turned out
a can of crab meat for deviled
crabs, while Angy added potatoes 1.0
her roast and got a fine biscuit
shortcake ready for popping into
the oven.
Then I flurried into a new
changeable taffeta of orc"*d and sil
ver. Phoebe had made herself .Inc

adorable salmon pink paulette
which she must have fairly jumped
into, but which nevertheless mads |

I her look like sea foam and cherry
blossoms. I hummed to myself as
I dreamed what a gay and perfect
little party this was going to be.
Jim strode into the room looking
like a thunder cloud.
"I sneaked in the back way," he
said amazingly.
"Where's Jeanie?" I asked.
"At home," replied Jim. "And
she can jolly well stay there. Only
1 won't have the evening spoiled
for those youngsters. So we'll
make up some lying yarn about her
having gone out before I could get
to see her."
"Why, Jim!" I cried: "Jim, have
you quarrelled with Virginia?"
"I'm pretty darn well through
with Virginia Dalton and her
blooming nonsense," said Jim bit
"Then Jeanie won't consent to
their happiness," I murmured to
j "Jeanie!" repeated Jim. "Jeanie;
J Who ever gave her a sweet, gentle
| name like that? Virginia Dalton's
jas hard as nails. She won't con

what ails that woman. Come on

kids one evening of happiness 111

jove! maybe a few more. There

Jim! I gasped. "Jim! I want
Phoebe to be happy. But your
Jeanie. I don't want you to think
of breaking with her."
Jim turned to me, and his face
was set and grim.
It s too late to talk about not
wanting me to break with Virginia,"
he said. "I'm through and she
knows it!"

on the Allies in a group. Reports

they must resign, it being declare!

time, making no special protest alt

goods. In other words the com
mittee representing the city does
not stand any responsibility. It
gets the food on a credit assign
ment and pays for only as much as
it sold.
Mayor Keister was enthusiastic
over the new plan. He announced
that he will get his food committee
to work at once. Big trucks prob
ably will be engaged to bring the
food to the city. The freighting
costs, of course, will be added to
the price to consumers but as vir
tually al! work will be done by vol
unteers this will be about the only
charge added.
Means Big Saving
Prices are not yet available but
bacon will cost several cents under
4 0 cents a pound. Similar bacon
costs 55 to 60 cents in the regular
markets. Lieutenant Boyle also
announced that the peas and corn
except some gallon cans of the
former are gone. There are plenty
of tomatoes left and millions of
pounds of meats.
The bacon is packed in twelve
pound tins and plans may be made
by the Mayor's committee to cut the
amount in ha'ves or quarters. This
will permit small purchases. An
other arrangement likely to be
sought by the committee is to have
small families band together and
buy tins and divide it among them
Sale Through Post Offices
Lieut. Boyle also has received in
structions concerning the sale of
foodstuffs through postmasters.
Prices will be fixed by the Gov
ernment within a short time and
m *df public by Lieut. Boyle with
out delay. Postmasters must furnish
cash with orders and an arrange
ment has been made whereby spoiled

lations governing the new mode of
I "Sales to municipalities will be
continued on the basis ot* former or
ders, except that if municipalities or i
other local governments, owing to
their charter and laws, are unable to
buy and sell, we will ship them upon
consignment, subsistence stores in >
not less than case lots, the goods to
be paid for or returned within thirty
days from their receipt. Shipments '
! of this kind are to be made only :
j when the mayor of the city or the;
1 head of the local government either
I acts as the government's agent and
f , supervises the distribution of the
food or appoints some one to so act.
i Municipalities pay freight from point
iof shipment and pay freight on
I goods returned."
Lieutenant Boyle to-day said that
j purchasers who desire quick deliv- j
i ery under the new plan ought to
: get their orders in now. Shipment
will be made when th . new price list,
• is announced.
Livestock Market
at Chicago Is Dead
1 Chicago, August 8. There was !
practically no trading in live stock j
here to-day. Even before the begin- '
ning of the strike in the stock yards
establishments, the buyers for .he
packing houses held off, awaiting de- I
velopments as to the labor situation, i
Business was further hampered by j
the uncertainty of shippers as to |
whether any railroad outlet for pur
chase heie would be available.
The tirst workmen to walk out
were 400 pork cutters in the plant of i
G. H. Hammond Packing Company. j
State troops were withdrawn from
the plants and mobilized in Dexter I
pavilion, near the entrance of the I
stock yards to be held for emergency i
duty More than 1,001) policemen and j
deputy sheriffs remained on duty in j
the various plants.
While thousands of white employes I
were walking out, a large number of !

Officers of the stock yards labor
councils said that about 12,000 ne- I
groes have been employed by the dif- !
ferent packers in Chicago and that j
of this number 3,000 are union men !
who walked out with the white work- I
Representatives of the packers de- '
elared to-day that the police on duty
in the stock yards were assigned to
duty by the city authorities to pre
vent race riots and that they were
powerless to order the guards away.
