good she's to go into our book.
It cost $25 to be registered in the
Vinco book, Rachel discovered lat
er, and the pay for her work was
made by the hour, five to fifteen
dollars usually, the higher rate for
special Jobs. But she knew none
of fills when she went on that first
assignment -where she wore a de
licious blue-flowered negligee and
lay on a peach colored chaise
longue while Selina, as her sup
posed friend, in delicate primrose
chiffons sat before the peach-draped
dressing table with her arm raised
to" her perfect coiffure. A canvas
and paint representation of a Louis
Qninae boisorie ; enclosed this
scene and in front of it two shirt
sleeved, disheveled men pushed
cameras and directed lights while a
man and woman from the furniture
factory busied about discussing the
girls and their effect as frankly as
if they were deaf.

Vinco: With a flourish he informed
Rachel that she was in his book and
be ' would send her such appoint
ments as seemed suitable for her
and collect her pay therefor, re
taining: 10 per cent for , himself.
From Miss Dean ; Rachel learned
that Vinco was a fiend for punctu
ality and any excuse short of a
broken neck was , nothing to him.
From the other nwdds, she met. she
learned more - about mm,-; mat ne
played falr with all his people, had
no favorites, was scrupulously hon
est about money,; but wouldn't let
anyone draw ahoad or cash a
check, and was intensely proud of
the quality of Vinco service
Her first assignment had been fol
lowed by others more interesting.
Rachel had posed in winter sports
clothes , for a . fashion'- magazine,
comir g up over a if ake snow hill
side, skis in hand, and had won a
small, acclaim because "you're the
first girl we've tried that Schlaparel
11 outfit on who didn't look Insane,"
the assistant editor told heft "We've
had three others." A furrier, too,
had liked Rachel for the pictures in
his catalogue. "It lakes a.tall girl

want it unless it's on their own

these days. Why don't they go in
the OCC and climb trees instead of
kidding themselves they're going to
land in a show?"
"But Oliver got me my job,
Pink," said Rachel. "They try to
do things for people, both of them."
"Then pay Oliver a commission.
Probably that's what he's hanging
" Rachel knew better. Oliver hung
around because she liked him and
he liked her, very much; yet it
,was . not as .simple as that,. Oliver
was not a simple person. He might
like her very much but he might
also be willing to take that commis
sion, though he never admitted it
outright. Rachel didn't feel that
she could offer money to him; if
she did and he took it, it would
change everything. Men shouldn't
take money from women like that.
Then Rachel would wonder what
difference H made, it was all right
to help a friend in trouble; what
difference did it make whether the
trfend was a man or a girl? But
'Something always balked her when
she tried to speak to Oliver about

all. The man model who sat beside
her in the car was quite different
from the usual Vinco brand Rachel
thought she had never seen him be- .

taken. "I was there the first day,
you came," he said, ;Tve been hop

Fires Are Hazard
To Country Homes
Cold weather, brings an increase in
fire hazard to country homes, warns
David S. Weaver, head of the agri
cultural engineering ' department at
This is due mainly to faults in the
construction of chimneys, flues, and
other parts of the heating systems,
Another source of danger is that
of allowing inflamable material to
collect around stoves, fireDlaces.
chimneys, or flues where a carelessly
dropped match or a spark may ignite
f The use of soft brick and poor mor
tar in an attempt to build chimneys
Inexpensively . ia.renhniuble ' for
many-a defect that has -cost a farm
familjHts home; Weaver added.
No bears or other things should be
attached to a chimney for support,
he continued, as any weight on a
chimney is liable to pull it out of
line and cause it to develop cracks.
Flues and chimneys should be
cleaned frequently, and particularly
at the beginning of the cold weather
period when fires are kept burning
to warm the home.
Weaver urged that all farm fami
lies check over their heating systems
to nroke sure there are no defects
that may lead to a serious fire.
"Fires in the country are much
worse than in town," he said, "since
few farm homes are equipped with
a pressure water system that would
make it possible to fight the fire ef
HOW MANY ARE A FEWT '
In a somewhat light: vein the Chris
tian Science Monitor once asked and
discussed the question, "How Many
Are a Few?" No conclusion was
reached, as there appeared to be no
definite authority, which might', be
cited to establish te answer. v , r
Later a correspondent in Newark
called attention to the fact, that a
small Scotch boy had found the ans
wer long ago, according to a story
which may be briefly related thus:.
The boy waa entitled to a "few
apples" as a prize for memorising:
more verses of scripture than any
other member of his Sunday School
class, whereupon the- teacher gave
himthree afples.'The boy demurred,,
asserting that he should have eight
apples. Pressed for his authority the
lad triumjh0yvproduce4 it from no
less a source than the Holy Writ,
quoting Peter, third chaptrr pth-
verse, which says:
"Few, that is eight souls, were
saved by water."
His contention being incontrovert
ible, the boy got his eight apples..
And, therefore, if anyone should ask,
"a few" means eight.
The following "calamity recipe" is
going the rounds: "One stewed
prune, one pickled peach, one date.
See that prune and peach are well
saturated with brandy or gin, then
place in seat of one high-powered
coupe and leave on road about 30
minutes. Garnish with bits of broken
glass and serve cold on a stretcher.
