The Wichita Beacon after telling
how it “happened.” says:
“We are asked what The Bencon

It is going to support every pro-
gressive thing that President" Wil-
son does or tries to do; it, is going
to stand by every Democrat and
Republican who tries to help him
do progressive things. It is going
to support every progressive effort

tree to the left of
the front porch,”
Aunt Ina had said.
The one before
her answered the
Bob Nevis, with
his feet comfort-
ably elevated on
the porch rail, sat
reading the morn-
ing paper. Notic-
ing a lady turn in
_ at the gate he
sprang up and
stood waiting for her at the door
“I’ve brought the tatting for Mrs.
Mendelhelm,” Rosina began diffident-
ly. “Will you please give It to her,
ami tel! her that Aunt Ina, I mean
Miss Ridgeway, is sick today and
won’t be able to help with the fancy-
work booth. She’s very sorry and
hopes Mrs. Mendelheim will be able
to manage without her.” She held
out a small paper parcel which the
young man accepted with thanks.
Bob stood looking after her. ‘Hra!
Who the deuce is she, I wondtr?
Don't remember having ever seen her
before. By Harry! she's a cracker-
jack for looks, Isn’t she?”
Doctor Nevis stood smiling Inside
the screen door and Bob spied him.
“Then you heard, dad!”
Yes, couldn’t help it and can’t say
that I blame you much. Mighty pret-
ty young lady! But if I were you
believe I'd have told the truth. That
Mrs. Mendelheim does not live here,
and, incidentally, suggested showing
her the way to the right house.”
Hob considered the matter. He
didn’t relish a walk of eight blocks—
alone when he had an interesting
hook and good cigars.
So he called Sammy Croop, next
door, and gave him a nickel and the
bundle of tatting, telling him where
.->ammy Croop staffed the small bun-
dle into his pocket and started on hi3
"ay. At the corner of Crlssmore
street he met J'.nmy and David Har-
row dale on their way to the swim-
ming hole. Sammy yielded without
much coaxing and agreed to go along,
deciding that the return trip would
be time enough to make his delivery.
But Sammy got a cramp in the deep
water, and Jimmy managed to hold
Dm up in a way while David yelled
bn 1 elp to some men in a nearby
field. The result was that Sammy,
weak and subdued from his sousing,
was brought home on a partly loaded
hay wagon and delivered to his
All day, Mrs. Aaron Mendelheim
worked at the church, wondering why
Miss Ridgeway did not come to help.
1 If she can', come she might have
sent word," she soliloquized indig-
nantly. “I could have gotten some-
one to help. And : ow about that tat-
ting she has been working on for
months? She says there’s twenty
dollars worth. And now where Is
she? Does anybody know anything
about Miss Ri< - But nobody
did. At six o’clock Mrs. Mendelheim
left the completed yellow and laven-
der booth and dragged her weary way
homeward. Her cup of tea failed to
revive her and she went to bed with
a splitting headache.
One of the Mendelheims telephoned
to the Ridgeways and the result was
that Rosina went to take charge of
the proprietorless booth, puzzled about
the miscarriage of her message.
■Iis. Nevis, leaving the house that
night, J Bob to go along, and he
soon found himself facing Rosina!
But Rosina had a disconcerting way
of looking direetiy through him that
made him feel decidedly insignificant.

Ridgeway’s beautiful tatting,” said his
I’m sorry, but we have none. It

not reached the church."
That is too bad!” returned Mrs.
Nevis, moving away. “Come, Rob-
Robert discovered the Indian suit
and the tatting next morning, both
drenched with rain.
He took the tatting home to his
mother and started out to hunt the
Ridgeways to turn in twenty dollars
to Miss Ina.
Rosina came to the door.
I vo come to confess!” began Bob
I'm a liar and a thief!”
In spite of herself Rosina laughed.
How dreadful! You look contrite
enough to be a murderer also. We
may as well ho comfortable while hav-
ing this awful confession! Won't you
mt down? Now tell me why you let
me talk to you yesterday when you
Knew i was at the wrong house?"
'Because—because, you were so
lovely and I was afraid you'd go. I
wanted to have you stay and—and—
say, I m a stupid donkey, and here’s
the money for the—whatever you call
that stuff. The little boy I sent with
it went swimming instead. You must
think me a muddle-head!”
Rosina laughed again. “Oh, don’t
go! Hpre you have a chance to talk
to me and now you are running
Bob needed no second invitation.
