He uses a make-believ- e telephone in calling make-belie- friends, and Mr. Astor, Mr. Vanderbilt and Mr. Rockefeller, all without knowing it, re on friendly terms with Johnnie Jsmith. Two hours ol travel and feasting with sra dpa and with telephoning to his millionaire friends has caused the housework to suffer.

In January a officer called. Barber said \Let the city feed him if it wants nim to go to school.\ And he had Johnnie read to show nis education had net been neglected. I he officer postponed action. . ' It was in March that Johnnie, nc!i with gold from Treasury Island, was play- ing war horse under the Second Avenue L and ran into a troop of Boy Scouts whose leader asked him to join. He called on Johnnie, instructed him in bathing , and turned the boy's thoughts to the great Mr. Perkins, the scoutmaster, does not please Big Tom. who insults him Cis confides to Johnnie that she is engaged to marry I'crkins, who sends her a birthday gift of roses. Big lorn orders thj girl to sell the flowers on tho strce on Sunday morning. Johnnie takes them, but promptly encounters Officer Clancy and bather Pat, who return to the flat with him and set Big Tom right about the laws regulating flower selling One-Hye- 's return brings a Boy Scout uniform for Johnnie and Father Pat brings the news that the boy's real name is Blake, that his father died a hero trying to save his mother from death at Niagara Falls. Big Tom's wrath at Cis's engagement to Perkins moves him tr tie Cis, beat brutally, burn Johnnie s books and leave the two tied in the flat. Even then Johnnie's imagina- tion comes to his rescue and all sail on a dream voyage to a happier land. Father Pat. breathless from lungs, a war memory, enters the flat to see Barber release the children. Onc-by- c is next on the scene, challenges Barber and takes a licking. Scoutmaster Perkins calls, engages Big Tom on an igreement that Cis is to wed at once if Barber is beaten. The big quits the contest a wreck and Cis leaves .the flat with her lover. Johnnyrs grief over the departure of Cis was difficult to conquer but he was cheered by a visit from One-Ey- e with a new scout suit and new copies of the .ooks Barber had\ destroyed. He returned Barber's cruelty with many kind- nesses. Then came the news of the fatal illness of Father Pat. (CopyrUht. 1D2S, by D. Zppleton b Co.) CHAPTER XXXVIII , Another Goodbye. The distance Deemed endless. Johnnie began to fear that ho might not reach the Father before ho died. \Oh all that flghtln' was bud for him!\ ho concluded regretfully. \It wore him outl But, oh, ho mustn't illot Ho mustn't !\ And yet that won precisely what Father Pat was about to do. When Joiinnlo had climbed tho steps of a hrownstono house and had been ad- mitted by a etrango priest, nnd long portieres had entered a high, dim room where thero was a wide, whlto bed, ho realized tho worst at oneo. For even to young eyes that had never before looked upon death, tt woo plain that n groat, a folemn, and a strangely terrible ohango had como Into that revered, homely, kindly face. Its smllo wus not gone not altogether, but still showed faintly around tho tender mouth.

THE EVENING WORLDS great universe, sho would be tho one to coma now, Just when he, Johnnie, needed the sight of her to make him more stanch' He remembered how she hnd stood before tho firing eo.uad, not shrinking from her late, not crying out In ter- ror of tho cruel bullets. And now how poised hhe wns, how fearless In this room where Death was waiting! Awe-Rtruc- k, adoring her, and scarcely dar- ing to brcalho lest sha vanish, he got 6lowly to his feet. \Edith Cavell!\ ho whispered. \Edith Cavcll!\ echoed Father Pat. \ 'Twas her dyln that helped manny\ \It's tlmo to go,' she said softly. \Tell tlio Katlifr goodby\ Dutifully he turned to take that last fnrcwcll. But now that ho had the martyred nurso at his side, ho deter- mined to enduro tlio parting man- fully. He knelt again, nnd tried to smile at the face trailing back at him from tho pillow. He tried to speak, too, but his lips teemed stiff, for some reason, and his . tongue would not obey. But lie kept his bright head up. Ho heard a whisper Father Pat was commending this scout ho loved to tho mercy of a higher power. Next, ho felt himself lifted gently nnd guided backward from tho bed. He did not want to go. IIo wanted to keep on rcelng, seeing that dear faco, to hold on longer to that weak hand. \Oh don't don't toko me!\ he pleaded, Tho dying eyes followed the small, khakl-cla- d llgure. \God's own-chi- ld!\ breathed the priest. \God's blessed lad!\ \Father!\ Then tho folds of the portieres brushed Johnnie's shoulders, und fell between his eyes and the wide, whit\ bed. IIo had taken hU last look. Ho wan nearly homo when ho dis- covered tho letter a thick letter In a long cnvelopo. It was in his hand, though ho could not remember how it camo to to there. But It was his. for both sides of It bore his namo ir. Father Pat's handwriting: \John Blako.'\ He did not opon It. Ho could not read It Just yet. Thrusting it Into u coat pocket, ho stumbled on. Had he complained and cried Just because Cts was o in another part of th'S sumo city? Had ho actually thought tlio loss or u suit and somo boons enough to feel bad and bitter about ? Was It ho who had said, after Cis went, that nothing worse could hap pen? Ah, how small, how trivial nil other tioubles Kocmed as compared to this ntw, strange, tcrrlblo thing Death' And how little, beforo this, ho hail known of genuine grief! Now something really grievous had huppencd. And It seemed to him as If his wholo world had como suddenly tumbling down in pieces In utter chaos about his yellow head.
