BEAR RIVER VALLEY LEa&er JANE'S CRAZY QUILT By ELEANOR "amid THRDFTY Betty's Aunt Jane was not so very much older than was Betty herself, six years to be exact, and Betty had just turned twenty. But when Captain Burton, a young army officer en route home, stepped off at Glenn Centre to visit a friend at whose home, quite accidentally, he met Betty, and when she invited him over that evening for the sole purpose of writing his name on This OAKLAND SENSIBLE SIX model is now recognized asthelead-- . ing exponent of high-power- light ed weight automobile construction, and as such delivers economies in gasoline, tires and maintenance unequal-e- d in an y other car.

"It's like this,- - lisped Betty. "When our boys went to war they left vacancies that were hard to fill In this small town, so Aunt Jane well, she Just 'filled In' wherever she was needed most, and they kept her busy. The postmaster didn't have anyone to drive the mail when his son, Billy, went so Aunt Jane took the job until he found a man ; and then she helped out at the corner grocery for a while, and the minute she was through there they sent word from the shoe store, 'Would she please come over and help them out?' So while the rest of us kept house and sewed for the Red Cross she went from one man's job to another until she declared she would just have to do something feminine. So to relieve her feelings she started a crazy quilt. We call it a crazy quilt," went on Betty, "but, really, it is a beautiful thing so soft and silky and cheery looking! All the neighbors brought in their odd silk and velvet pieces as soon as they found out she was making one. Maybe you think she might have used her spare time to better advantage but no one who knows how hard she worked to help win the war would begrudge her the only, pleasure she allowed herself through it all. "It will be sort of a war relic, too, when it Is finished, for In the center of each square there will be a soldier's name In his own handwriting. Won't it be interesting? When the hoys come home they'll all have the honor of enrolling on Aunt Jane's quilt; but she'll feel proud to have a real captain's name on it the first thing, and you'll probably be instructed to write on the most conspicuous square of all. No we'll expect yen this evening so don't disappoint us," concluded Betty,twith her prettiest accent, and Captain' Burton smilingly assured her that he would be there at the appointed hour. At home, Betty's mother was busily preparing supper, while her sister Jane sat by the window embroidering a beautiful silken square. "Seems good to have you home early, Jennie," said the elder woman. "Better put that 'workup- new, though; tWsJ.lsbsgL ting dim. Isn't that a piece of the dress you had that winter you taught school up in Maine?" "Yes," softly replied Jane as she folded her work and gazed dreamily out of the window, for that small piece of silk had awakened memories both pleasant and painful. It had taken her back to the little town where, six years before, she had taught the village school, and incidentally learned a lesson so well herself that she had never been able to forget, although she gladly would have The kind that do the cleanest, best work with the greatest assurance THAT TROUBLE WILL NOT BE CONSTANTLY OCCURRING.

"Oh, Aunt Jane," she began breathlessly; "I. met an army captain this afternoon the most splendid-lookinfellow and he's coming over tonight to write his name on your quilt." "Well, of all things!" broke in Bet"Isn't that just like ty's mother. Betty?" "Why," said Jane, "she knows I want soldiers' names for my quilt, don't yon? That's fine I Let's hurry supper, and afterward we'll make fudge. I'll bet he likes It." "He couldn't help liking the kind you make," said Betty as she threw off her hat and furs and gave her aunt a loving little squeeze. That evening, promptly at eight, Captain Burton rang the bell, and Betty flew to greet him. Ushering hlra Into the cosey little parlor, she had just finished presenting him to her father and mother when Jane came In from the kitchen. "And this" began Betty, when to her complete surprise "Burton darted across the room and seized both hands of her aunt, who was blushing furiously. "Jennie!" he exclaimed, and "Howard," said she, rather weakly; then recovering herself she turned to her astonished niece and said : "Betty, your captalQ and I are old friends. I met him six years ago up In Maine." "And to think," said Betty to herself Just before the wedding, us she patted something delightfully soft and with here silky, and gorgeous-lookinand there a scrawling signature on Its bright beauty, "If it hadn't been for this dear old crazy quilt Aunt Jane might never have seen her lover again !"

Many changes had occurred since then. The old home had been broken up, and she had come to this distant town to live with her sister ; but through it all she had remembered. Once again her heart pictured the tall young principal and listened to his earnest words of love. It was the proverbial lovers' quarrel that had come between them. She knew now that she had been to blame, but that realization came too late, and no doubt another shared the heart and home which might have been hers but for her own now is wise considering the price and chances of getting it next winter.
