She gave the adults a brief conspiratorial smile, and opened the door to the left. ' Georgine sank down on a red plush chair, buttoned into rigid hillocks. For a minute she averted her eyes from the fireplace with its mantelpiece of tortured golden oak. Georgine noted with some chagrin cha-grin that the hour was getting later and later. But Barby was in her own peculiar seventh heaven, talking a mile a minute to Mrs. Peabody about the 'wonders of Dyke. What's more, Mrs. Peabody liked it. . , Then, too, Todd kept looking about him in the strange old house w i t h a haven't-I-seen-you-some-place-before expression on his face. And Georgine wanted it clarified. clar-ified. "Todd," she finally said, "have you been here before or something?" some-thing?" "No," Todd said, "that I know for sure. I only feel as if I had." "Darling, that just means your brain has fallen in half, or something some-thing like that." Georgine grinned at him. He got up and began prowling with his light step about the room. His deep-set gray eyes were narrowed nar-rowed against the level evening light, and he bit his lip reflectively. "No, Georgine, this is something more than the I-have-been-here-before feeling. That lasts only a rninute. I might have deduced the S3 ' -Ume into me sittma room, won't you all?" whatnots, but I've really seen that shell somewhere, and the portraits. His lean face looked actually troubled. ' His glance at Barby, now quietly quiet-ly sitting in the upholstered niche of the bay window, seemed to say that he couldn't elucidate now. Georgine saw that Barby had gone to sleep, as suddenly and deeply as if she'd been drugged. The WAVES hat was tilted at a drunken angle over one ear, and her feet dangled appealingly from the window-seat, but she still had her flashlight in one hand. "Let's not wake her," Georgine said, struggling to her feet. "She's really had enough to eat today. Right after supper, if you'll forgive for-give us, Mrs. Peabody, we'll get her home." They closed the sliding doors between dining room and sitting room, and sat down at one end of an immense old walnut table. Mrs. Peabody's cooking was quite as appetizing as her personal appearance, appear-ance, and under the stimulus of food and hot coffee Georgine found herself having an extremely good time. What a nice woman, she thought more than once ; so gentle, but with that crisp little sense of comedy. The room swam into a pleasant haze of candlelight and drifting wreaths of smoke; Georgine could see the three of them reflected in the mirror of a massive buffet that stood at right angles to the windows. win-dows. "Now, Tm really afraid that we " Georgine began at last ; and at almost the same moment Mrs. Peabody turned to glance at the windows. "Oh ! It's dark !" she said abruptly, in an unsteady voice. "Isn't it foolish of me," said Nella Peabody, and for a moment clasped her hands in a curiously appealing gesture, "but I-I have a quite unfounded dislike of being alone here. An old house seems so very large at night, don't you think? It begins to settle and creak as soon as the air cools, and I can always imagine ... Oh, I really do wish the family had consented to my making this into a tourist home. I'd always thought it would be a good plan ; there are those five nearooms upstairs If you count the little sewing room but I rather gave up the plan when the highway high-way was cut off, and then afterward after-ward Mary Helen and Horace wanted to come and live here, so it seemed best to keep it in the family. But they're not here much. Horace is part owner of our drugstore, drug-store, and his hours are very peculiar, pecu-liar, and he's like as not to be so keyed up after work that he'll thumb a ride to Vallejo or some town that's wide open all night for the shipyard people, and not get home until after breakfast. And Mary Helen has friends If thev only stayed all the time, If I could count on them but to be here alone . . ." Todd had said nothing but stood looking at her with his peculiar air of attention. Now, as he slid the doors apart, he glanced once more about the sitting room, whose appalling ap-palling furniture seemed to start out and then retreat from the can dlelight. Georgine saw him shake his head almost imperceptibly. She thought, It's almost as if he knew that Mrs. Peabody was afraid of something definite instead of just plain being scared the way I am, alone in the dark. "Still dead to the world," he said, laying a gentle hand on Bar by s cheek. , ivirs. reaooay switched on a lamp, shaded with a huge globe of painted glass. "It seems almost dangerous to take her out in the night air, after she's been warm under that afghan," she said quietly. quiet-ly.

"It's almost as It you were In the lamily, Mrs. Feabody was saying, with that attractive smile, "And I'd like to see a little more of you. I'd be so so grateful if you'd stay." Georgine thought queerly, They are all against me: Mrs. Peabody and Barby it was true that sudden sud-den changes in temperature sometimes some-times brought back remnants of Barby's asthma, which she had battled for so many years and Todd. Todd wanted to stay, she knew with a sixth sense, and his quiet face confirmed it when she glanced at him. There was nothing to set up against the three except her own selfish wishes. Mrs. Peabody mustn't go to the least trouble, she heard herself saying weakly. She must be al lowed to help her hostess with the dishes, and to make up the beds for the three of them. Well, no Barby Bar-by wasn't used to sleeping with anyone, but for one night oh, if there was a cot which could be set up without too much fuss, that would be perfect. v She felt Todd's eyes, amused and loving, resting on her during this highly feminine conversation Luckily, he was one of those men who like women to be themselves. She grinned at him now.-mutely apologizing for all this flutter, and asked if. after he a put the car away in that shed at the rear, he'd stay with Barby and wake her by gentle degrees. "Don't be surprised if you find some dust upstairs," said Nella Peabody cheerfully, climbing the soaring flight with one hand on the rail "I don't get up more than once or twice a day, on doctor's orders. or-ders. Luckily, there was a maid's room downstairs, with a lavatory attached, that I could take for my own after after my husband went to war." She said the last words quickly, resolutely. It was her first mention of her own circumstances, Georeine realized with some sur prise. "Oh, by the way," Mrs. Peabody Pea-body went on, stopping a few steps from the top, "are you by any chance afraid of rats?' "Yes," said Georgine in a horri fied whisper. "Oh, please don't look like that, we never see them. They never leave the attic, I promise you. No body's ever seen them up there, as it happens, nor even caught one in a trap though not for want of trying. I just wanted to warn you you mignt near tnem; ai least, that's what the children say makes the pattering and rustling noises upstairs. They don't mind in the least, they tell me." "Then I mustn't either," said Georgine grimly. They crossed a shadowy upper hall, wide with the splendid wastefulness of space favored fa-vored by architects of the past tentury, and, like the one downstairs, down-stairs, walled with doors and doors and doors. (TO CONTINUED) Woman's World ScwChildren'sClothcsatHome, Women Who Would Save Ivy Crlta J4a(ea "I DON'T know how I'd manage tho budget If I didn't sew th children'! clothes at home." is what many women say to me. The saying of a few years ago, that it wasn't worth the effort to sew at home because things were so Inexpensive, no longer holds water. It's just the other way around now, so buy your material, lady, and get busy at the sewing machine. Pajamas, nighties and even robes are really so simple to maKe at home, that even the novice can whip through one of these garments In about two or three hours. The material and fit of the garments to say nothing of the workmanship is bound to be superior to what Is now available In the finished product. Materials are now coming to the market more readily, and it's fairly easy to find cottons, percale, broadcloth, broad-cloth, seersucker, muslin, flannel or flannelette, challis and knitted wool ens for pajamas ana gowns, .pat terns are easy to follow, and you can even make them yourself If you're experienced at tracing from worn underwear. Pajamas are one item where you can economize on sewing at home for the whole family. For the youngsters young-sters you may choose the two-piece kind inasmuch as they're the simplest to construct. I say this merely because one-piece pajamas necessitate buttons and buttonholes and you can save a half an hour of time in sewing if you use the two-piece two-piece type Here is a wonderfully simple way for making nlghtwear. First of all, have patterns and material ready you want to tconomizt . . . and make sure you know just what steps to follow. A good idea is to brush up on the instructions the evening before so you'll know exactly exact-ly what comes next Assembly Line Technique Easy to Use for Pajamas Cut all the pajamas you are going go-ing to make and pin each one together to-gether as you cut it As you are pinning them, sort them Into the piles you have to sew first, second, sec-ond, etc. In another pile, place facings fac-ings and bands, pockets and cuffs; In other words, those pieces that are applied flat Join shoulder seams, apply neck bands, sew in sleeves. Do all your hemming and basting, if necessary, at one sitting, then all machine sewing at another sitting. , Work on a large table and cut out several garments at the same time while you have all your equipment equip-ment out. WorR goes much faster if you can "specialize" a bit on your different tasks. Fabrics for pajamas and nightgowns night-gowns should be selected primarily for their durability and ease of washability.

There are bound to be restless nights when the children chil-dren toss and turn while sleeping, and their garments should be designed de-signed to give them freedom of action. Let the armholes particularly particular-ly be large and roomy, the legs wide enough without being too baggy. Avoid having the legs too long as they will only get in th way. Consider Comfort First In Making Pajamas If however, the children seem to be sprouting more quickly than you can keep them in clothes, you may have generous hems on the pajama legs which can be taken. down as they grow. For the younger children it may be practical and even advisable to make pajamas with the feet Many mothers feel that this comes in handy if the child should unwittingly throw off his covers during the night .For smaller children it is nice to have a back belt that can be slipped through the side seam belt loops to tie in front The youngster young-ster can adjust this type of garment easily, and it eliminates buttons. There's nothing so important as good stitching, especially where it concerns a much worn garment such as the pajama. Set the machine ma-chine correctly with thread and fabric fab-ric so that stitches will be even. You'll save a lot of time mending if you take this little precaution. To finish the pajama properly, use a pinking shears on all simple seams. This may be employed during dur-ing the cutting, and then this part of the garment will be finished. Cottons Cot-tons are easy to cut with pinking shears and no problems will arise if the shears are in good condition. For the seams on the inside of the pants, a french or flat fell seam is best because it lies fiat and will be more comfortable than any other type. True, it takes slightly longer to make, but the pajama will be more comfortable for it Durable Rue: Done In Easy Cable Stitcli Knitted Lingerie By laundering carefully and ironing the fabric of your knitted lingerie intelligently, you can preserve its good looks and add to its life. Always iron on the wrong side, using a well padded ironing board.. Follow the grain of the material as you let your iron sweep over the garment Never pull or stretch the fabric. Lace and embroidery should be pressed on the wrong side, and this is best done over a soft towel or a pad. When you Iron an unfamiliar fabric for the first time, beware of the temperature of your iron. Start with a warm iron, and if the wrinkles don't come out easily, eas-ily, gradually Increase the heat until the iron glides smoothly over the garment, pressing out the wrinkles readily. For rayon crepe and satin, use a moderately hot iron. The fabric fab-ric should be almost dry when ironed. Soft spun rayons take a hot iron, but the fabric should be, bone dry. Fashion Flashes Look for less tailored dresses in the casual line. One-piece dresses with surplice necklines seem to be the coming thing. These are not quite so tailored, and may be just the thing for busy afternoons of shopping shop-ping or calling. Designers are more and more interested in-terested in easy fitting in their new gowns, so look for this feature when you axe purchasing your next dress. Just as the winter dress Is exquisitely ex-quisitely simple in its cut and line, so are the classics soon to appear in the stores. The dresses already seen, especially those in linen, are beautifully tailored. You'll be seeing white combined with an interesting array of prints, among them batik and paisley. These are bound to be flattering to young and old alike. 594 LjASY to knit it s done m sec - tions on two needles. Lovely for it's cable stitch.
