This in--well, I'm doing something for tile mOney! I've got a right to the money If I earn it. It's--don't you see how it is, mother?" "Of course I do." "And think of the poor old house." hrry finished pathetically. "After all these years of being a barn. and a blot an the landscape, just think how it wll! feel to wake up some morning and find It is pretty, and lovely, and that people are stopping in the street to exclaim aver It! Think how you'd feel If you were a house." Jerrold considered that too much of a strain on a business Imagination like his, but he finally agreed tilat it was a Sound practical proposition, and if Jerry had made up Iler mind to it. he thought it might turn out rather nicely all around. And he would go with her the very next day to look it over. anti get figures on It, and If it seemed all she said. they would buy It and pitch in. "Buy It!" Jerry repeated. In great surprise. "It is hought l I bought It this afternoon. I gave I~lm m~" five hundred dollars, and I don't have to make another payment for three months, and I figure that by that time I ought to have it looking like pretty much of a place. What 1 want the money from you for, is to begin tear- ing things down." When dinner was oxer. Jerry looked regretfully at the waning light, Size should ~ave liked to dash her father ant mother out to look at the house tight away. but It was too dark. So she pulled out all the old House Beau- tlfuls, and spread them over the din- ing room table, and worked feverishly with a pencil and a pad of paper, 6ketching ont little nooks and corners as she Intended having them in her finished product. "Lucky tiling I studied Art, after ill," size said brightly. "I never thought Cd find such a real practical use for ill that nonsense." Prudence hung over her with pleased 6ollcitude, charmed with her avid in- terest, agreeing with every word she uttered. "I may not make such a lot on this one," Jerry admitted later rather re- luctantly to Jerrold. "Because I don't know how to figure down the expenses of It. But with the experience I get an thls erie, rll make a killing of the next." "What do you mean. 'the next'? Is this the first of a series?' Jerry pulled herself up, surprised. q'hat was a funny thin~ to say," she admitted. "I hadn't thought of a next one." She went on brightly, "But of course you can see that I must not waste all thls experience, and If I can make a little on the first I can make [leaps more on the second. So when you come to think of It, of course this Is Just the beginning." As Jerrold had grown older, had learned to entrust his affairs.to others in his employ, he had gradually fallen into a way of going steadily later to the office, so that now it was customary in the home to have breakfast at nine o'clock, after which Jerrpid took his own time about getting off. But on the morning after Jerry discovered her passion, he found blmself a tardy mem- ber of the household. Jerry pounded on the bathroom door three times while he was shaving, urging him to make haste, and when he hurried down at I~st, to show her Indignantly that it then wanted ten minutes of the hour. slle said : "Oh, I forgot to tell you. I told them we'd have breakfast at eight-thirty." That was the beginning of Jerry's most feverish month. She bargained with contractors, plumbers and build- ers. She studied designs, she puzzled over matching colors. And in the end, the house of dreams that evolved from her tender thoughts was built on most engaging lines, Jerry was nothing If not thorough. The stiff steep steps leading up to her house from the street had met with destruction first of all, and in their place developed a pretty stair that "went on the bias," as she said, angling up the green ter- race In a most inviting manner, and then drifted up to the veranda which was extended around the house to the left, while the stiff square windows and the stiff oblong door in front were torn out for a sweep of graceful French windows. The awkward square paler and par- lor bedroom, comprising the left.hand imrtion of the first floor, were thrown together to make a broad living room. With window seats all the wa~ around and shelves for books and handsome built-in cabinets. The staircase which had so particularly annoyed her was completely thrown into the discard. and a very broad one erected in Its stead, rising from a wide base in the rear of the living room and turning Itself about in some clarions fashion finally to reach the t0p. whte the changes were yet more drastic. One leeplng room was entirely done away with. to be transformed into a pretty informal sitting room or lounge at tile hea~ the Calrs, a nov eL~d!engag- lug versinn of an exaggerated hall. many o~;+ ~ many times lhe was appalled by them. It was hard b her to believe that human belngt f like herself could be so grossly stupid as to misunderstand and misinterpret instructions so plainly, so lucidly, so painstakingly given. She was amazed to learn tlzat laborers, regardless of the dellcacy of the work on which they were eugaged, regardless of the hn- perarive need of haste, regardless of the honor that was theirs in asslting to beautify and ennoble and elevate an inherent weakness in the structure of their own home town. would drop a shovel on the stroke of the hour. and would even walk sturdily on! on strike for a trivial detail they called a prin- ciple, but which to her seemed a flag- rant breach of contract. Site was pained and bewihlered to discover that her carefully matured plans, set down in consistent hl'lck and white, signed, agreed to, and included in the financial estimates of the con- tractors, turned out to be not at all as she had intended, and that she was obliged to replan, refigure and reallow In order to develop her cherished dreams to concrete fact. And she was especially shocked t,~d upset to find that there were things that a lather. in Ioy:llty to his laboring brothers, would flatly decline to do. ttzings a plumber would wash his hands of. things a plasterer would openly sneer at, thit~gs a bricklayer would consider an insult to his profession and thus oblige l~.er o deal wltb a totally new organization of workmen to meet the exigencies of the case. And she found the cost of her work mounted heavenward on soaring wings, and that her anticipated earnings sank~ with a correspont]ing ratio, In spite of her natural easy generosity, she soon found herself dickering constantly over trifles, arguing with great heat, even with anger, trying to cut down a dollar or so here. grudgingly allowing a dol- lar or so there, where she felt the ex- penditure must not be denied. "Why, I have to argue ever fifty cents, like any street peddler," she said to her father plaintively, regret- ting this new but necessary niggardli- ness of hers. "Already they've forced me up and up muclt farther than ! in- tended. Why, If I don't stand up for my rights, l won't make five hundred dollars on the whole business! And the way I've worked over it i" "Oh. I thought you did not care about making money." he said. "I thought you said there was no nobility In the simple earning of a dollar or So." "In the bare earning of It--there isn't. But this Is a different matter altogether." Jerry was Joyously. mysteriously, ~assionately happy. She told herself quite often that she had entirely for- :otten Duane Allerton, that file had ~ntirely forgiven him for his vulgar In- solence. And she worked harder than ever. Within a month she took an pp. lion on another wretched little hovel, four-roomed, moth-eaten, run down at the corners, a disgrace to its street, trod Immediately began getting eatl- mates for its rebuilding, and making roseate sketches of its future estate. Jerrold had taken her to his bank In the beginning of her business advert. turlng and obtained for her an audl- ence with the president, Irvtn Weath. erby, a member of Jerrold's club and his particular friend. Jerrold was ex- tremely businesslike on this occasion. "I know you have met my daughter, Jerry," he said, "but I want you to get: In touch with her In a professional, way as well. She Is going into bnsl-" hess for herself, and I am starting her off with a checking account of three thousand dollars, but should like for ~'ou to extend bar. an additional credit of two thousand If she needs It." Jerry explained her business Inter- est with the Impulsive eagerness of her youth, And Irvin Weatherby looked at her. no(tded his approval, sighed dismally at her father. "Ain't girls the darnedest, any more?" he asked plaintl~vely. "That second daughter of mine, Emily-- know. what the little fool's doing? Set-, retary to a dairyman over in Cl'lcago, twenty-five a week, and crazy about It. Says she won't be dependent on any man for a living, father or what-not. I hope to God she gets married, that's all I've got to say." Jerry laughed at his concern. "Look at Judge Daniel's daugllter. Clerking in the ten-cent ! You ought to be glad you drew nothing worse than a secre. tary---you might have got a laundress or---an Art Trailer.'* Jerry still Insisted, when she thought of it, that she would not work for the sake of acquiring money--she could get that fr~)az her father. But she sat up nl;:hls figuring how she could cut down the expenses of her business. "Th~t's a different thing," she al- ways said. "The nnlv way you can tell how you're gettlng'along is by how mu~,h you make." In July she started work on the sec- ond cottage, lml)atlent to get It Into human, habitable shape before the coming winter. And In August she earnings of the house would he six thousand~a month. If stle paid twelve thousand for the house, spent five thousand making it what she called fit to live In, allowed a running expense of perhaps a thousand a, month prior to making a sale outrigtlt--Jerry's fig- ures turned to aureate dreams. She told he~ father she would "hat .my amount he wished that she could sell the house tt was going to be for twenty-five thousand dollars. Jerrold aureed with her. Prudence said she knew right from the beginning that Jerry was right. So she boi~ght the house, and In her new absorption in estimates, plans and figures, fell into a way of forgetting to go home for meals at proper hours, and lost a preposter- ous amount of sleep in her efforts. Jerry had returned to Iow~ in March. It was early In September when she had her first letter from Rheda l,a Faye. Rhoda was brisk and to the point, in correspondence as well She Hastily Pulled Out a Pad of Paper and Wrote a Letter. as in person. Her letter consisted of three paragraphs. The first told Jerry how very much she, Rhode. loved her, missed her. admired her. The second told her that she. Rhode. had Just been awarded the scholarship by the Academy for her picture, and was leaving the first of October for a year's study ~nd travel through the art cen- ters of Europe. The third said that Duane Allerton. whom perhaps Jerry would remember, had lost all his money in a terrible crash In Wall Street, that the poor fellow was com. pletely broke, down and out. and up against it, as recorded In the daily pa- pers. that he did not know where to turn for the next meal, and was said to be Iookin'- for a Job, but of course couldn't get one because he did not know how to do anything. And wash'} It a shame, a nice fellow like Duaae? And now he would probably become a tramp and a bum like other nice young fellows Wile are left money they don't know how to take bare of. And with oceans'and heaps of love-- Rhode inclosed voluminous clippings from tile dally press Of New York to stSstantiate the last two paragraphs of her letter. Tigers were photographs of her prize-winning picture, of Rhode herself, and columns in praise of her and of her work. Jerry ungrv, tefully tos~ed them to the floor. There were other and more sensational clippings recounting the financial troubles of ymmg I~mne Allerton and his des- perate plight, with a tragically pen, cllt~ sketch showing Mm. down at tbe heels, treading the rails as he would doubtless be a few years hence. Jerry read every one of them. She was trem- bllng.

One lovely September morning, at eleven o'clock, s smartly dressed young man stepped briskly Into the office of the Harmd~ Motor company. He held his soft gray hat In ;.Is hand. and smiled, as he said he wished *~ see Mr, Harmer, tf you please. Tbe charm of his manner was not lost upon the young girl at the desk. who told him with real regret that Mr. Harmer was in a very Important conference, and had left word that he did nut wish to be disturbed. She professed her entire willingness to produce any other per- son connected with the establishment who cou!d be of any possible interest to tllm. But the young man shook his head. He said he must see Mr. Har- mer in person, and should very much appreciate the earliest possible mo- ment consistent with Mr. Harmer's convenience, of ('curse. The girl sal~ she would see, and what name. please? "Duane Allerton, from New York city." She smiled. She had been expectlng "New York city" from the momem she noted his entrance. She wept away and came back almost at once. saying that Mr. Harmer was very busy Indeed, and ttlat another hour. or indeed an- other day would suit him better, hut recommending the services of hls llusi- hess manager, who was available at the moment. Duane considered that report. He took a letter from his pocket. "Will you give this to Mr. Harmer," he asked pleasantly, "and tell him that I will return at any bout, or any day. he cares to designate? But I prefer not to see the business manager, un- less he lnslsts." The girt smile& and went away with- the letter, curiously atudyJna~ tile ad- dresa on the envelope. She was gone some time. There was something like awe In her face when she came back and said Mr, Hnnuer was waiting for Mr. Allerton in his prlvate office. She pointed the way, and I)uane Allerton. the soft gray hat still in h.is hand, a light of deep amusement In his dark eyes, opened the door and walked in. Jerrold was standing up, the letter In his hand and the two men studied each other with equal interest. Jer- r~lld put out his band. "I'm sorry I kept you waltlng," he sahl. Indicating an easy chair close to his own, "In apology, may I explain that the young woman, my daughter. did not evidently deem it necessary to mention this llttle--er--invitarion, to me?" "Do you mean to say you didn~ know--" "Not the alightest suggestion of a hint. It la news to_ me." Duane broke into a short l~leased laugh, and Jerrol~l after a puzzled, anxious moment Joined him. "I like that !" Duane said. Jerrold shoved a box of el~arettes toward him. Each took one and lit It In silence. Duane leaned back com- fortably in his chair, and smiled at his host. But Jerrold, under cover of the Cigarette, was sharply appraising, is. marking .the dapper sma'rmess of 'Duane's clothes, the .weave. the tailor- ing, the studied niceness o/ colors and tones~ "Do you want' f Job?". he asked. hopeful of a refusaL "Yes. please." ~What can you do?" - "Lord knows."

In addition, the use of the half- ampere power tube is considered in the last stage. Since this tube re- q~lires about 135 volts of "IV' battery, the use of resistance coupling calls for no additional plate voltage. Imped- ance coupling is adopted for the first stage slnee this provides superior de- tector action and greater detector out- put. Moreover, with a good imped- ance coil for the first stage, the qmdity is good. A honeycomb system of tuu- tng is shewn, with a primary coilm,,te unnecessary by the expedient of em- ploying a small fixed eendenser as the coupling medium.
