When I arrived at Neal's apartment
for the second time this morning 1
found Father Andrew waiting in the
doorway. With amazing agility lie
rushed to the curb and jumped into
the car the very moment, that 1 came
to a full stop. His mood communi
cated itself to me, and I opened tne
throttle again and started off at once.
After a moment Father Andrew
spoke almost timidly.
"The telegram, Babsic girl, I must
see that," 'he said.
I pointed to the moire bag lying in
my lap, and then for several minutes
busied myself with my driving. Final

1 understanding that carried me back
to the iirst happy memories of my
strange childhood.
'Barbaru Anne," he said suddenly,
"there's a name that always means a
heap to an old man. A wizened little
girl, with big, unhappy, questioning
named him quite some years ago. He
knew when that little girl began call
ing him 'Father Andrew' that she was
a-telling him that she loved and
trusted him. It kinda established a
big friendship between 'em at once,
and it appears to me that neither of
'em ain't ever failed that friendship
1 took one hand from the wheel
and put it over Father Andrew's.
"You're right about that love
starved little girl," l said. "She'd
knocked about from pillar to post all
of her poor shoddy days. She'd been
on the edges of shame and poverty
and hitter disappointment, though
she didn't know the names for them.
And then you came. Big and strong
and kind and sturdy. And she loved
you right off. that little girl did—and
always will. You've never failed her
yet, and she hopes she'll never fail
I "What made you say that, Bai-
I bara Anne?" demanded Father An-
I drew huskily. "Can you tell me what
made you say that right now—when
1 need to hear just them words?"
"Something deep in my heart made '
me say that. Because it's never been
half so true as it is to-day. Somehow j

needed you so and called on your love j
for all I had need to take from it. j

And l'.d be so proud to give. What
ever you want from or Jim, is yours,

"I know that Barbara Anne. Drive
deeper into the park, will you, girt,
where they ain't many folks—just
you and me and the little wild thing
that gets taken care of just like you
and me—if only we keep our heart's
I turned to the greenest, woodiest
path I knew, and then Father Andrew
went on gently:
"Babbsie, I'd like you to tell me
all you can recollect about your own
"My own dead father never seems
half so much my father as you," I
replied wonderingly. "I don't believe
j I can add a thing to what mother told
i you long ago."
"Mebbe not—mebbe o. But an ol i
man's memory can do with a mite of

t to remember those poor days before
j we three came together and had our
little home in the sunshine I
would'nt if 1 could help it, Babbsie."
"You keep using Neal's name for
me. It seems funny. Why do you
do it, dear?" I asked, and was sur
prised at the questions after they
were out.
"I'll tell you," replied Father An-

I "when I show you the telegram,

your own father? You ain't forgot I
j how he came by his death, have

I "Of course, not, dear. It was that
wreck in the hills."
"There was dynamite found on th?
track afterward. wasn't there?"
asked Father Andrew in a tone that
was more like a stat •ient.
"Yes, I remember >.earing mother
j say that. He'd been off at a race

call. and he'd written about making
a lot on the ponies. I can remember

I roast beef for dinner every evening."-
j "Do you remember the funeral,
dear?" asked Father Andre<v. "My
Martha told me her recollections.
But I must hear it from her daugh
ter, too."
"Yefi. It was all so terrible ar.d
yet so interesting to the child who'd
never been so important in her lif?
as then. Reporters asking me ques

to the room where the coffin lay and

didn't look on that poor, marred face,
j You didn't fee —your father. Then,
j can you be sure that the man they

I be sure?"
I turned and faced two blazing,
compelling eveyes looking at me out

Samuel Leighton's house was on n !
corner. The owner was walking up I
the opposite side of the street, and j
was still some feet away, when he
heard a door slam. Stopping in the J
shadow of a large tree, he peered
across the street.
It was his own front door that
had opened and shut. Desiree must
have had a caller who had stayed
Still in the shadow, he saw some
one descend the steps and turn
down the avenue. The rays of a
street lamp fell full on the tall and
erect figure of David Smith DeLaine.
"Smith himself!" Leighton whis
pered, his lips twitching and his
hands clenching.
• There was no mistake. The in
truder's figure and bearing were too
striking for the watcher to fancy
himself in error. But what was he
doing here? Had he the effrontery
to attempt to call on his former
employer at this hour of the night?
Still motionless, Leighton gazed
after the departing form. Smith
walked with an assured swing his
head thrown back, as if he were as
honest as Desiree had insisted he,
was. >
A shocking idea forced itself upon |
Samuel Leighton's consciousness.
Smith had been to call on Desiree.
What did it mean? Was she a party
to the deception the chauffeur had
practiced ?
The world seemed to be slipping
away from under the father's feet.
Crossing the street he glanced up
at his daughter's windows. At that
instant a light flashed out. She had
evidently just entered her room.
She had received her caller—and
had gone upstairs as soon as he had
Noiselessly the parent let himself
into the house. He wanted to be
alone before talking to his daugh
Five minutes' reflection in the
darkness of his library brought him
to a decision. He would give Desiiee
the opportunity to tell him all that
she was willing to confide to him.
She had always been open and
honest with him. He would make
it possible for her to be so now. If
she were not it would be because
her head had been turned by the. i
rascality of this fellow who called
himself "Smith," and who was real
ly the good-for-nothing nephew of
Miss DeLaine. of Baltimore. What
a fool the father had been to allow
his child to visit that eccentric old
Going upstairs, he knocked at his
daughter's door.
"Dear," he called in a voice he
struggled to make natural, "may 1
] come in?"
"Certainly, Dad!" she called back.
"Come right in!"
He found her seated in an easy
chair. She had taken off her dress
and put on a soft negligee. Her
j loosened hair fell about her shoul
- dew. Her cheeks glowed and her
eyes shone. There was an air of
j suppressed excitement about her
Ithat the man noted with a sinking
I of the heart.
"I am feeling a bit restless," he
jsaid, "and thought if you were not
i asleep yet we might have a little
"I am not even sleepy," she as
sured him." Sit down here Dad,"
motioning • him to a chair. "I want
110 talk with you anyway. I had a
call from Smith th ! s evening."
Her Own Accord
She said the words without look
ing at him. He was glad, for he
knew that his face changed. Yet
he drew a breath of relief. Of her
own accord she was going to toll
him the truth.
"Smith?" he repeated. He would
not let his indignation betray itself
in his voice.
"Yes," she said, still without look
ing up. "The reason for his coming
is quite a long story."
"I shall be interested in hearing
it, if you care to tell it to me," Leigh
ton remarked.
Desiree was surprised. She had
expected and feared a violent out
What had changed him—or was
he exercising an unaccustomed self
He may have felt the inquiry in
her eyes, for he said hastily, as if
to disarm suspicion,—
| "Would you object to my smoking,
my dear? May I light a cigar?
"Of course you may smoke," she
replied. "What a ridiculous ques
tion for you to ask of me! Haven't
you always smoked where I was?"
"But not in your bedroom," he
reminded her.
"Then you must begin now," she

commanded. "Five minutes with
the windows open will chase all

why he went from us so suddenly.
"A very wealthy relative of his—
an uncle living in the West died
the other day and left him all his
money—a large fortune, I fancy.

from the family lawyer calling him
to Baltimore—his old home—imme
diately. That was why he went
j away so unexpectedly.
"Indeed!" Samuel Leigh ton's ia
| terest was genuine. "Then our
I chauffeur is a rich man?"
"Very rich," the girl affirmed.
Not," she added, "that that makes
any difference. He was a gentle
man already—and money could not
jrinke him more of one.'
"Yet it makes it unnecessary (or
him to work at an uncongenial job,
obtaining a living," Leighton ven
His daughter glanced at him
sharply, and the parent saw her
eyes flash.
"He is not the type of man who
would ever resort to doubtful ways
of making a living!" she declared,
with dignity.

debating and scarcely a week passes
but that they have a debate during
one of their home room activity
periods. At a recent debate the ques
tion, "Resolved, That aircraft are
more destructive in war than under
sea boats," was debated. A team led
by Ester Aumiller championed the
affirmative side of the question,
while a team led by Christian
Brandt defended the negative side.
The decision was in favor of the
affirmative speakers. The members
of the section were delighted with
the talk on airplanes and air serv
ice by Mr. Guest, who was in the
U. S. Army air service during the
war. The citizens of this section are
also much interested in the study
of Current Events.
The wireless enthusiasts stole a
•march on the rest of the student
body and organized a wireless club
Friday evening. This club is limited
to about fifteen students and is re
cruited from the ninth year. The
boys have agreed to pay a small
monthly payment as well as an en

electrical department, assisted the
boys to effect the following organ
ization: President, Fred Mentzer;
vice-president. Miles Zoigler; secre
tary, Edward Blumenstine; reporter,
