I left ihn.1 v lili little more than the old ' homestead. j | "I have it, Alice!" exclaimed EJna | after a few thoughtful moments. "All | that old jewelry we lmve in the bottom of our trunk I will take to the melting pot tomorrow. Guess I will at least get one War Savings stamp for all we have stored away, and that will be my stamp for June. Come along now and help me get it out. Oh, there's my little silver watch, nearly ten years old. I doubt if I used it a dozen times. How proud I was the night I first wore it." Lunch hour next day was devoted to disposing of her treasures, and evening found her overjoyed with the results. "Oh, sis!" cried Edna; "Just look?two War Savings stamps t Isn't that great? I'm so happy I don't know what to do." "Yes, Edna, it's fine," said Alices "you're always so fortunate in all% your undertakings." "The little watch I gave to the Red Cross," continued Edna excitedly, "as they said it was too good for the melt ing pot." An. eventful month followed, and then came Edna's big vacation. "A fine chance to mend your old clothes," ad vised Alice as she was leaving for work Monday morning. "Yes," said Edna as she curled her self up on the couch, burled in one of the latest novels. Monday morning Fred Morse had been discharged from St. Vincent's | hospital, and expected to sail for New ?York the following day. Two long I weeks, tj?e longest lie had known In his whole life, had been spent In this hospital, the result of having been in jured doing his bit. Together with four others, he had been chosen to give a course of lectures at Camp Up land, n:id the next day they were to Fti'rt for the U. S. A. . "I'm completely lost without my I wrist watch," said Fred to his nurse, 1 Miss Synd. "Perhaps I can get you one; it was only last night the president of our Iteii Cross branch announced the re ceipt of some watches, and if there are any loft I will get one for you." "There," said Miss Synd as she pre sented r red with h watch that after noon, bor great brown eyes sparkling with Joy. "the only one loft." Fred tl;??!?{>??. !??.??

Was he still unconscious, or wttr it really .true? -T*f?r>lt surely was so, for there on the cover was the fa miliar monogram. "E. M. C." fancy she was with him once again. He could hear her gayly chatting or humming a song as they paddled up r!? >'V in hi- favorite canoe. And Edna, pTtiTc clKM Ard and e\s of nzure blue. witii her fair golde n curls blowing in *the gentle summer b.eeze, resting so comfnrtaHy among the cushions. "Well," thought Fred, "my dear old sweetheart, I'll give you the surprise of your life when I land in New York." The persistent ringing of the door bell roused Edna from lier reading. What! A letter from Fred Morse post marked New York! Could*It be possi ble? Quickly tearing open the en velope she read of his receiving the wrist watch and the slip of paper in- j Bide. "Will be home by Wednesday, j Could we plan for a canoe ride Thurs- j day evening? I will phone you Wednesday night." Edna could hardly realize that Fred was really coming to see her again, as she had thought he had long since for gotten her. Anxiously she waited for the phone call, and with still greater tuxlety for Thursday evening to coma. The great, beautiful moon cast its ?livery light- ?pon the old familiar river as Fred and Edna slowly paddled to their favorite "cozy corner." 8bal tered by overhanging branches, Fred ?ettled himself down beside Bdna. gently drawing her head to his shoul ler, he whispered, "Will you be tnj >wn sweetheart*forever, Edna?
