There is nothing like playing fairly,

Arthur Thorne had argued until he
was tired of arguing. There waj no
use trying to talk sense into a man
who hadn't any, he thought at last, as
he gave up .with one more effort.
"I tell you she Is young just about
twenty-one," he said hotly. "Because
she is an actress you think she has to
be old. There are some young ac actresses,
tresses, actresses, aren't there?"
Mervln Benton, his companion, was
quite willing to admit that there were
but this one, he claimed, was not. "You
can't tell me," he argued. "This Dora
Fraleigh will never see thirty-five
again. Her hair is false, Tm willing
to wager anything. Did you ever see
curls like hers that were real? Every Everything
thing Everything about her is false."
" Arthur knew if he stayed he would
become angry. Mervln was jealous
that was what was the matter, he felt.
Without another word Arthur left
the bath-house where the conversation
had been held and made for the beach.
It was a glorious day and the guests of
the hotel were making the best of the
bathing weather. He caught sight of
Dora almost immediately. Apparently
she was searching for something In the
water near 'the beach.
"What have you lost?" he asked, as
he waded toward her.
"Oh, nothing,", she answered a trifle

confused. "Isn't the water fine?"
After completely immersing himself
and swimming aimlessly about for a
few seconds, Arthur agreed that It
was. ?Let's go out on the raft," he
suggested, but Dora seemed unwilling
to leave the shallow place. This was
surprising, for she had always seemed
anxious to get all the fun possible.
There was something troubling her.
She even seemed unwilling to go on
the beach for a sun bath, but finally
"There!" Arthur exclaimed, as he
stretched out on the sand.!.T thought
I never would get away from that
shallow part. There were so many
children there I didn't have a chance
to talk with you."
"You usually have lots of opportuni opportunities,"
ties," opportunities," Dora smiled.
"What's this?" he asked, as he picked

up something his toes had been rub rubbing
bing rubbing against in the sand. "Well, look
what's here I A false curl 1" Sure
enough It was.
Dora took It from him eagerly. "I
lost it I" she exclaimed, as she jumped
to her feet. "I was searching for It

out there. Wait until I go and tell
auntie. Shell be delighted."
She was off before Arthur could stop
her. He looked after her with- an ex exclamation
clamation exclamation of dismay on his lips. To
think that those beautiful curls of hers
were false. No wonder she hadn't
talked much and had been confused.
So Mervln had been right
When Dora Joined him again he was
trying to smile, but found he couldn't.

"What makes you so quiet?" she asked,
after they had sat In silence for near nearly
ly nearly five minutes.
"Nothing very much," he replied to
her question. T was thinking that I
.was going Jiome tomorrow."
"Going home 1" she echoed. "Why
you said last week that you would be
here all summer."
"I have changed my mind," he an answered,
swered, answered, but when he saw the pained
look on Dora's face he wished he had
thought up an excuse.
The next morning Arthur's resolve
to go home had not faltered. He
wasnt going to stay there to be the

laughing stock of the whole hotel when
they found out about Dora's age. He
was only twenty-one and most likely
ehe was thirty, anyway. Nine years
was too much difference. He felt so
uncomfortable over it he went to the
station half an hour before the train
Vas due to leave. His going away
would leave the field open for Mervln.
That was too much. He left the train
In a hurry and left word with the bag baggage
gage baggage man .to have his trunks sent back
to the hoteL He couldnt be happy
without Dora, even If she was eighty.
He found Dora In a secluded corner
of the veranda. Her eyes were red and
there were other traces of tears.
"You haven't gone yet," she cried
Joyfully, as she caught sight of him.
"I heard that yon had gone without
even saying good-by to me."
T came pretty nearly doing it, dear,"
he said, "but I couldn't go away and
leave you here. When I go I want to
take you with me, I want to marry
- "If you wanted to marry me, why
did you make me worry about your
leaving so unexpectedly?'! she asked,
trying not to smile. "Last night was
the second night I have lost sleep by

worrying. The night before it was the

thought of having lost auntie s best
curl that"
"Auntie's curl?" he interrupted.
"Yes, the curl you found yesterday."

"Oh !" Arthur groaned. T thought

that was your curl!"

"Mine!" she laughed. "And I was

only twenty a week ago!"

"Thank goodness for that," he cried.

-"But why?" she asked, perplexed.

She laughed for. a long time after he
told her. "But what difference would
It have made If I was thirty-five?" she

Briefly, the school seems to have tak taken
en taken a new lease of life under the effic

Davis. There are forty girls there,
which is its capacity. Miss Davis
came to Ocala a year ago, at first as
a teacher; the last six months as
superintendent, succeeding Mrs.
Range. There has been no trouble dur during
ing during her term. The matron, Mrs. M. C.
Elliott, is a. practical and capable
woman and has fully discharged every
duty. (I quote the report). Miss Alda
Sams, a graduate of the East Ten Tennessee
nessee Tennessee State Normal school, is doing
excellent work, especially her class
in music is thriving."

Terible Infection
Do you want to escape the Spanish
influenza? Keep away from people
who have it. Follow the advice of the
surgeon-general of the United States
army about keeping your mouth, skin
and clothes clean. Also, keep up your
health. Don't let yourself get "run
down." If you feel weak, or debilitat

liable tonic like Dr. Williams' No. 101
Tonic. It will do wonders for you. It
is a ready prepared prescription of a
noted physician, the late Dr. G. B.
Williams, of Quitman, Ga., who used
it in his private practice in treating
all kinds of fevers, cords and grippe.
If you have the "flu," start taking Dr.
Williams' No. 101 tonic. The quinine
in it will kill the influenza germs; the
iron will increase your vitality and
improve your appetite, while the
magnesia will act on the liver and

Blllie stiffened resentfully. "You
