WATERLOO EVENING COURIER AND REPORTER, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1916. 11 A TALE RED ROSES RANDOLPH CHESTER Copyriaht, 1914, by Co. (Continued, from Monday.) CHAPTER XIX. Molly of Relief. tOMEHOW she. felt a of vast relief, of' of ex- hilaration'In her releasa from Bert It would have been wick- >d to have entered into a lifelong mar- lage with him, and now she seemed ilways to have had an undercurrent >t that feeling which she-had hidden rom herself. A little trace of reseiu- neut rose In her that girls were taught o look BO lightly upon the marriage re- atton that it might be entered into so houglitlessly; that a girl might select ler life partner because he was a good lancer. I don't mind confessing that I would all likelihood have broken the en- gagement, even had you not she old Sledge, deciding suddenly to have t all out, to "be perfectly frank, and 'or the-first time to look her own sell ;quarely In the face. "1 had realized ust at the last moment." she went on, 'that Bert's attitude toward our mar- was not what ft should be. That loes not necessarily mean, however, .hat I arn willing to marry you. That's >ne thing you can't- make me, do, Mr and she. looked him quietly In he eye. He studied her a long time and felt oollsh. "I guess not." he humbly confessed. 'I thought I could, but 1 'got to let i-ou he the boss." Slie could not know how much that idinission hurt him, but she vaguely ,'ucssed at it, and something like pity JBtlrrod within her. "In that 1 must be." she asserted. "1 oiiRht we were (jolng to your bhe added, puzzling over the out of the ray route. "N.iw. she returned. "It was to bn." IIP corrected, "the governor's house. I bought it, lurnl and all. 1 sent Waver to Paris." "You're a continuous ah "You do such big things." "That's he sheepiitily de Inied. "Waver's tickled stiff. I got Ihiin a_blg job. He didn't want to sell, (though." Molly longed for Fern. up the steps" and rubbed bis battered old head against Sledge's leg; then lay down with his chin on Sledge's foot. Molly tapped half hysterically on the window in front of her and fumbled frantically to get it open. Drive she called. "1 want to see Bobl" Dob looked tip at her with n distinct grin as she alighted, and when she stoopeii swiftly down and put her arm about his neck he laid hia head against her knee and whined'. "He's crazy about said Sledge, looking down at them both with hun- gry affection. "I got a big kennel out here for him, but he's lonesome. There's a place for Smash too." "Oh, they'd she quickly pro- tested. "Not he returned mournfully. "Bob's been licked." "Then It Trill be safe for me to take Bob home with me when 1 win Molly mischievously suggested, "Plumb Sledge bravely agreed. "You want to take him back "Not right now, I she quickly replied, with a pang of regret that she md given him this needless hurt. Governor Waver's former butler, n gray haired Englishman of torturing llgnity, came out on the porch; "I beg your pardon, he said to Sledge. Sledge turned and looked him over, with disfavor. he grunted. "Mr. Heeler is telephoning, sir. He wishes to know if Miss' Marley is here." Come on, invited Sledge. "We'll tell him. Do'you like that but- he asked as they went in the library. "He is a very efficient one, I she granted. "All right; I'll keep he decided. "I did think I'd fire him and get a wooden one. Honest, Molly, that guy ain't human." He picked up the telephone. "Hello, Tommy! Yes, you bet she's here. No, nothin' Molly wins. Sure! Here. Molly, took the telephone, but instead of th'e full voice of Tommy she heard ilie eager one of Fern. "Are you married yet, Fern "Have him bring boescd Molly. "I don't think she'll regret- ted Fern. "Her folks won't let her." "Dicky Molly assured her. "Invite Dicky too. Tell him I want him. Llave him bring Smash. He likes Dicky. And bring all my red "Anybody asked Fern, quiver- ing with eagerness. "You cnn't havo Bert, you know. He's gone. He's hustled down to the police station to have Sledge arrested." Both the girls laughed hilariously at that absurd idea, while Sledge stood by In a dumb trance. "We'll hide giggled Molly, "if we can find any place big enough. 1 don't want Judge Blake, Feru. Has Dr. Templetou "Yes, but we can get him shrilled Fern, whose voice had been gradually rising In pitch as she be- came more und more excited. "He'll do anything for me. Say, Molly, Jes- sie's here yet, and she just tells me that she's afraid she won't dare come. Sledge, you know." "You tell Jessie it's all right" di- rected Molly; "Mr. Sledge is going to take father's company Into the consol- idation, and that will make every- body's stock worth a hundred dollars a share tomorrow morning, and the West End bank can pay out its de- positors, and Bert Glider can sell out bis stock and his amusement park property at a profit and go back east and be a social leader." She turned from the telephone a mlnuta. "Say, she addressed Sledge mis- chievously, sliding her disengaged hand affectionately up on his shoulder, "would .you object to have Dr. Toin- pleton marry "That preacher that soaked me In the queried Sledge.

LOOKING BACKWARD 60 YEARS An Interesting Bit of History Everybody Should Know One of the interesting places in Lowell, Mass., is the old apothecary shop on Merrimack street, established in 1827. This location is still a. drug store, although of course modernized in many de- partments. The old prescription hooks, however, have been preserved and form an interesting record covering nearly a century. Perhaps one of the most interesting books is that of the year 1855. On one of the pages of this book, that dated June gth, 1855, is written the original pre- scription for Father John's White's Mattresses Give Satisfaction Built honest and right.

(This prescription was compounded for the Reverend Father John O'Brien at the old drug store on that date, and was so success- ful in treating Father John's ailment, which was a severe cold and throat trouble, that he recommended the medicine.; to his friends and parishioners.

The conquest was tremendous one, she smilingly thought as she looked at him and remembered his ;fort hlgb handed ruth lessncss. r-Somehow. however, she hac not quite the glee in her victory to which she was entitled. He was so obviously downcast tha she wanted to cheer him up, but she could think of nothing to say which would lighten the heavy gloom now settling upon him. That failure in it- self made her feel rather mean, and [she was not it all satisfied with her- self when they Dually drew up to the porch of the magnificent Waver man- sion. Sledge alighted Immediately and held out his hand. "You fooled me he charged, "but that's "It's she assured him in his own language. His big .hand W.IB warm und n solid, substantial thing to hold to. She was glad that he liked her BO well. It was safe and comfortable to know tbat. "Good wordsl" he approved.' "Mol- ly, you're a lady." He still held her hand. He looked at it foolishly. He squared his shoulders wltb sudden de- fiance. He kissed it! "Back to Mar- ley's, he directed and closed the door of the limousine. Billy pulled away from tho porch. She waved her hand at Sledge as they made the turn. There was n new droop to his shoulders as he stood there on the stately big porch all alone In his black Prince Albert, with a red rose in bis buttonhole, and his silk hat In his hand. He seemed so forlorn, so lonely, that Molly felt as if she were leaving him on a.desert Island. Around the corner of the house there painfully limped a once white bull ter- rier, with one eye gone and both cars chewed to ribbons and scars crlsscross- >d In every direction.
