"Rather remarkable, isn't It," said
the sick old lion, Judge Freeman,
"that the most expensive hotel and
the most luxurious resort In the
world should be only a few miles from
an almost impenetrable wilderness In-
habited by Indians that the United
States army could never dislodge?"

tor; "but the prices here are almost as
Impenetrable as the knife grass of the
everglades. And as for Indians, the
Vnited States navy couldn't disiodgo
some of these old millionaire Btiuaws
from their snobbery."
"I'm afraid my daughter finds it so,"
the judge agreed. "Here we've been
for two whole weeks and Lois doesn't
know anybody who is anybody—ex-
cept Plerpont Stafford's boy, and I'm
afraid he's only flirting with her."
Doctor Royce had not been engaged
to prescribe for Miss Lois Freeman's
ambitions, so he changed the subject,

Doctor Royce came to her defense
with a curious warmth. "They're driv-

too big hearted and brave and wise to
be treated aB a child much longer."
The old man sighed: "We fathers

"I don't feel quite up to golf."

the corridor gave him the missing
