Penfield's neck. She kls,ed the tired cheeks. Mrs. Penfield held her close.

"Dear little girl. may you be Imppy-- always," she whispered. CHAPTER XIV Not a Friend to Uncle Jerry. "What's the idea, Car'line?" In- quired Uncle Jerry, comlng into the kitchen.

"I wish I had a settled Income," he muttered. He Jammed on his hat and went out. *'Poor man. I wish he had [" thought Mrs. Penfleld. "It's hard on him to cut loose and nt get tied to some- thing again. Land, I got to be careful not to feel hurt 'cause he can't talk it over with his oa niece; but trying to force a feller's confidence Is 'bout llke prying a eocoon open with a knife. I ain't going to care; I'm going to expect--and I'm an awful good ex- pecter. F, esides, I got a heap of won- derful things to think about." It was t.'ue that several high points had recently been reached by tn9 Pen- fields. For one thing, Crink had been promoted In the grocery business, be- ing pald now in a small amount of cold cash for his two-hour service In the late afternoon. He was also still on the inside ring in regard to" bar- gaitm In :egetables. groceries and meat bones, and continued to bring in supplies that represented a sharp saving to the family. Crink bad visions of being able to support the household before many years, and already he was swlnng in and out of The Custard Cup with an engaging air of haste and responsibility. Lettle also had distinguished her- self--by a week of flawl,,ss behavior. Whether It was because of greater effort or because of fewer alluring temptations, no one knew ; neither was anyone so unfeeling as to inquire. The glory of the achievement threw the lower rungs of the ladder Into kindly shadow. At Isst Lettle had been arrayed In the pink sweater and the white hat of Turkish beaver and had gone to dmrch. And again no one sought diligently for the motive--- lest It might be found. Many motives which result In creditable actions will undergo Instant disintegration if they are expend to the light, and no risk was run by any Penfleld. It la not to be suppotted that Lettle. having won her victory, was Inclined to underrate Its value. For weeks the pink-and-white outfit had been the pinnacle of her hopes and the bittereat element in her failures; but when it was bet's by honest record, she ear. tied off the situation with great non- clmlance. Her black eyes glowed with deep fire; her face was Irradiated: but her manner was set in the last notch of Jauntlnem. "Jlminy!" she had cried, upon her return from church. "These togs sure beat the world for class. I didn't see anybody dressed niftltr, and I got the swellest feelings Inside me. Seems like there ain't nothing I couldn't do h I had the clo'es for it." Mrs. Peafield smiled at this naive confession of unchanging femininity. "Now that you've begun, I .tope you,ll keep right on wearing that sweater ev'ry Sunday. It was easy, after all wasn't ItY' "OIL dead easy! confirmed Lettle, with a careless gesture that reludl- uteri weary weeks of abortive en- deavor. '*There ain't nothing to this behaving stunt 'cept not g.Vttlng tiled." (TO BI. CONTINUED.)
