She was all alone iu the chapel kneel- ing near the shrine of the Sacred Heart, as far in the shadow as she could get, for if anyone had seen her, there would have been con- sternation in St. Agnes" Hospital for Children. Sister Angela, ready and competent, with cheeks like rosy apples and little lines which humor and laughter had etched around eyes and mouth, never cried. Everyone turned to her in an emergency and She was always ready to meet it. Her work had always been right here with the children, and for al- most forty years she had been their "Sister." They all knew and loved her. Down in the clinic in the admitting room and in the wards, small hands were always outstretched to welcome her. Lit- tle white faces brightened as sh( bent over the beds. But it was no only the children. The most trucu- lent parent, the most bewildered foreigner, quieted down under the calm firmness ad heartening cheer. None of the emergencies had broken her. Sickness and death troubles and worries, she had met them all, undisturbed and unafraid. But she was crying now. The hot tears streamed from her face; her whole frame shook with sobs. Here, alone with Our Lord, she could let her sorrow have full vent. He would understand. And it was heartbreaking sor- row. The depression in its black- ness nowhere had struek harder than in the hospitals and the schools. Endowments had ceased to pay interest; rich friends were in the throes of unaccustomed ec- onomies and the poor were less able than ever to pay. One hos- pital after another closed. St. Agnes had felt the losses with the rest. The most rigid economy had been practised. Sister Angela her- self had risen night alter night to switch off extra lights and to make sure that there was no waste. The staff had been reduced. O!d Tim. the engineer, said that he could get along with just one man now. and the ambulances had been re' duced to one. Every penny wa counted. All this was hard but not un- bearable. It was the blow which had fallen this morning, which had broken Sister Angela. Unless some miracle happened -- miracles did not seem numerous now--St. Ag- nes, the oldest foundation oc chil- dren in the city, surrounded still by its po,r, must close. 'But can't we economize in some way, Mother?" Sister Ange'a had asked. Mother Perpetua shook her head. "We have considered every possi- ble way. The ready money is at an end and our income is nothing until the investments come back which may not be for years. We shall hold on to the property for a time at any rate. In some years, we may be able to start again in a small way. The Trainlug School will be transferred to the City Hospital and most of us will re- turn to the Mother House. There are no real plans about ourselves as yet. It is hard for us all." Sister Angola had said no more :She had stumbled out of the Moth- er's room, her eyes blinded with tears. Fortunately, it was her free hour She sought the chapel to give herself up to her grief. "Dear Master, these are Thy children," she pleaded aloud. "Must we leave them albne? W'ilt Thou not send us help?" Suddenly her mind was made up. She would make a novena. She would stay in the chapel after the night hours were said. No one else need know. There all alone with our Lord, she would plead for that aid. She would tell Him of the children who had 'come and gone. She would speak to Him of the poor He loved and beg our Lady to add her prayers as well. "'It is wonderful how brave she is," Mother Perpetua remarked more than once. "No one will feel this change more than Sister Angela." The Novena went well. There in the stillness, she was learning a new companionship with Our Lord as she told Him all her trouble told Him of one child after anoth er, pleading the cause of His poor. $, $ * It was the sixth day and help was still tarrying. As she went down that morning to the clinic, Mother Perpetua called her again. She lifted an official paper from her desk. "The police have sent this no- tice to all the hospitals," she said. "It is about a missing baby of eght months." "A missing baby! How dreadful, Mother!" Sister Angola was all concern. "It is a tragic story," the Moth- er said. "The whole thing is being kept out of the papers as far as possible. Sir John Waltham and his wife have been staying in Ylor- ida with her parents since the baby's birth. They had as nurse, the wife of their chauffeur, I be- lieve a Corsican. The" chauffeur proved careless and unreliable and as a consequence the two were dis- missed. They made a good many threats which were ignored, but when they left, they took the baby with them. They .will make for some port, and all the hospitals h.ave been warned to keep a look- out for them and to b on the watch for the child." "Have they not asked for ran- som ?" "No, for th matter is one of re- venge. A note was left which Lady Waltham found. It stated that the heir of the Walthams would not hound the poor, for he would know poverty himself and he would be a thief as well; his captors would see to that: The tamily is making every effort, but the tracks kave been covered well. The baby is subject to coleus and it may be they will seek some hospital. The steam- ships are all being searched. A child of that age is hard to recog- nize, but this is a picture of him in his mother's arms." Sister Angola took the police re- for the police have found some kind of clue here." Sister Angela went downstairs. For the first time, the thought of their own troubles, was out of her mind. She was thinking of that sunlit garden and the mother's happy face. Such a bonnie baby as the child was- even in this poor print. Fair and with great blue eyes, had been the description be- neath. Sister Angela had noted the long tapered fingers on the out- flung ht/nd and the arch of the tiny feet. The mother's heart must be breaking for her child. "Dear Lord, bring him back to her," she whispered many times that day. That night she found it hard to keep her mind absolutely on her request. The mother and baby would share her prayers. "But not this one," Sister Angola told her- self. "This is just Our Lord's sec- ret and mine. He wants me to keep this novena that He may save the hospital." "But He wants the child, too." Another voice seemed insistent in her heart. "Can you not pray for the mother and the child too?" "I must pray for the hospital now," she said half aloud. But all her peace was gone and she found herself gazing into blackness. She would keep the novena. "This was] absurd. Yet as she passed Our[ Lady's Shrine on her way out, it seemed as if her Face reproached her. Our Lady would be sorely concerned for this mother and child, she who had lost her prec- ious One for three agonizing days. She was foolish, Sister Angela told herself. She was growing fan-! ciful in her old age. Our Lord could answer any prayer. Outside of her novena, she would pray for the child with all her might. That last night she crept back in- to the chapel tempest-tossed. She knelt at the Shrine of the Sacred Heart, all her enthusiasm dead and gone. Words seemed to fail her now. She tried to pour out her need, to tell our Lord of all the hospital had done, and yet before her eyes, filling her mind was the lost baby and the sorrowful mother. "What is thy desire, O Queen, and what is thy request?" The words rang suddenly in her ears. They were those that Father De ViIle had used in his retreat, five years ago, taking his lesson from the story of Esther the Queen. "Lord, Lord, Thou knowest all our need --" "Do you want the hospital or. do you want the child?" It was not a voice but a quick conviction that came to her. Our Lord was offering her the answer to her prayer, but it was a choice. She clenched her hands in tense agony. It must be the hospital-- it was needed so---who was goin to look after the sick little ones who was going to stand with hand., stretched out to the sad and sor- rowful? Oh, it must be the hos- pital, and yet, here was the ans- wer to another prayer, a child in danger, not of his life but in peril of moral destruction in crime and evil. Somehow Sister Angola knew that one of her prayers would be answered if she asked. But why? why? Surely the mother must be praying; surely there was someone le Socialite by Lucre LEa Readers= It you wssh the cot, rect answer to your 3oriel usage problem, mail it to Lucie Lee, The Observer, St. Vincent's Or. phanage, Freeport, II1., and it will be answered through this column.

The woman sits at the head of the table, always, be she host- ess at a dinner or at an everyday meal in her own home. The man is head of the house, but the wife is head of the table. Q. When signing a hotel regis. ter should an unmarried woman ut Miss before her name or sim- ply sign her given and surname? A. This is one exceptional case where a woman prefixes her name with either Miss or Mrs. as the case may be. Of course a married woman would sign Mrs. followed by her husband's given name, not her own. Army Ranks Reversed In P eace Toledo.--While conducting the Most Rev. Paul Remond, Bishop of Nice, and the French ambassador to Spain, Marshal Petaln, through the ruins of the Alcazar, the mili- tary governor of Toledo and his staff were told an amusing sbory by their guests. It has to do with the reversed status of these two World War veterans in civil life. During the war, Bishop Remond as commander of a babtalion of in- fantry was subordinate to Marshal Petain; today he is his spiritual superior. The summer residence of the marshal-ambassador is in the Diocese of Nice. a slight cold and can be treated at home." "There is something odd about the case," Sister Angela answered. "Keep the child under any pretext for the present." She rang up Mother Perpetua. "Reverend Mother, will you come to me," she pleaded. "It is urgent and I cannot come to you." The very rarity of such a request brought Mother Perpetua at once. She entered the clinic as the door opened to admit the woman, a man and a young policeman.

A few tablespoons vinegar or the whey from cheese should be added to the liquid used in baking, says this Stockton reader. She al- so says the cause is an acid in the yeast which is active during the hot weather period. Another reader also sends more sandwich fillings which we print below.

"I am afraid it is all a mis-I take," she said apologetically, "but Sister Angela seems to think this might be the W'altham baby!" "She may be wrong but we can- not let such a chance pass," the policeman said. He eyed the for- eigners who were conversing excit- edly together. He walked over to thorns it here. I have to report to the inspector," he told them. The man looked uneasy. The lift stopped. The woman made a dash for it but Sister Angola barred her way and slammed the door. The policeman had gone to another phone. He came back. "The inspector and Sir John will be here in half an hour," he said. Mother Perpetua sat down. She sighed a little. They would all be laughing stocks for this fuss. "The policeman will stay here. Come and see the baby, Mother," Sister Angela begged. They stepped into the elevator and went up to the top floor. The The baby cuddled contentedly in her arms. The Mother smiled. "You had better stay with him, Sister," she said, "I will go back to the clinic." Sister Angela sat down happily. It must be the child. Had she not prayed. At last the door opened to admit an inspector of police, a tall man and a beautiful woman whose face was drawn by anxiety. "My baby! my baby!" Soft sil- ken robes swept the floor as she knelt by Sister Angela. "It is, oh, John, it is our baby. Thanks be to God[" Sister Angela laid the child in her arms and slipped away. She must go and thank Our Lord. "How did you find it out?" Moth- er Perpetua asked her as she came from the chapel a little later. "I prayed," Sister Angola ans- wered simply. "I asked Our Lord to find the child and He did." "You have saved us too," the Mother responded. "The reward will pay our debts and Sir John insists upon aiding further still." "Reward ?" "Did you miss that? You no- ticed everything else," the Mother laughed. "The hospital will not close -- why, Sister -- ." She put in His loving arms. And her love went out in answer to His call. "Lord what Thou wilt --" she prayed earnestly. "Find this child and bring him back to his mother, Blessed Lord." She knew the prayer was ans- wered and she laid her own broken hopes wordlessly at His feet. Slow- ly, she rose and left the chapel. She had given Him His desire. "No, the child has not been found yet," Mother Perpetua told her in answer to her question the next morning. "They are all baf- fled by the lack of clues. You look tired, Sister. Do not work too hard today." $ $ Sister Angola forced a smile and went on. It was a busy morning, for the clinic was full. One after another approached her and the two white-coated internes were kept busy. Towards the last a dark-haired, dark-eyed woman, very plainly dressed came in, car- rying a baby in her arms. "He is seek; I need some medi- cine," she said. "There is not much wrong --" the interne began when something nurse met them. She ted them to drew Sister Angela over to the lth e quiet room.

Sister Angela was crying, but they were tears of joy. Blessings brimming over- that was the way Our Lord worked. He had let her go into the shadows with Him and then He had flooded her world with sunshine. Darkness had en- dured for the night, but joy had come in the morning! nurse and child inside. She turned back to her desk. A pair of flashing eyes met hers. "I "do not weesh to leave the child," the woman was declaring. "Bring heem back at once." "He has to stay," said Sister Angeia. She had heard tirades before but never such as this. The woman stamped and raved, spit in her face and poured forth a jumble of abuse in English and Italian. Sis- ter Angela was unmoved. "If you behave like this, I shall send for the police," she said calm- port. The picture was of a su.-lit ly.
