"If you weren't a Prodessint, Tommy, you could pray to St. Joseph," said An- drea, with unthinking cruelty. 'TIy father and mother always pray to St: Joseph for things . . , He's the Good Provider." "Can't he .pray, anyhow, Andy?' - sought Tommy Clifford, relying on An- drca's superior theological attainments as a pupil of the fifth grade at St. Joseph'& ''He could only pray to God, I think," was Andrea's Judicial response; and Tommy Lawton muttered abashedly that --'e don't talk about God at our house." But as the boys, on the way home, passed St: Joseph's, Tommy Clifford was moved to take Tommy Lawton into the church and point out to him the dim brown statue of the benevolent St. Jo- seph. "There's only three vigil lights in front of him, Tommy; everyone's lighting them to St- Rita and the Little Flower," whispered Tommy Clifford. "He doesn't seem very busy. I bet he could do some- thing for yeLL" .... "What's a vigil light ?" demanded Tom- my Lawton, definitely awed by the at- mosphere in which he found himself. 'Well, it's a light you pay ten cents for, and it shows the saint that you know he can get your favor for you," said Tommy Clifford, vaguely. Then the boys left the church and hurried to their homes and suppers, It was only the next day that Tommy, doing an errand at the grocery for his mother, was offered a quarter by a charming lady, if he would help carry her purchase Tommy Jumped at the chance, and cheerfully trudged two blocks to a comfortable old house set in a wide yard. The lady led him around to the back porch and they entered a warm kitchen, where a buxom woman stood washing something at the sink. Tommy carefully unloaded parcels on the table and pocketed the quarter that the lady gave him. "See, Lggie," she exclaimed, "what a satisfactory knight-errant I found. Sup- pose you let him have a piece of ginger- bread while you put away the groceries." "I will that," said the buxom woman, "as soon as I have dried St. Joseph; it's washing him for his feast day I am." The lady left the kitchen, and Maggie produced a big square of gingerbread; but Tommy had eyes only for the statue which she had placed on the cabinet by the sink. Sure enough, it bore a decided / resemblance to the statue in the church, though cast in less heroic mol An in credible temptation beat fiercely, insis- tently, upon Tommy; while the slow- moving Maggie arranged packages in the pantry, he seized the statue and stole hurriedly out the kitchen door.

Apologizing for dropping in uninvited, apologizing for not having come sooner, half-laughing over their own predicament, they made known their errand. "Harry," said Jack Cullen, 'you're the Scout Master at St. Joseph's. Do you know a boy named Tommy Clifford?" "Tommy Clifforct--sort of a dumb youngster, but a nice kid; sure I know' His mother's a widow, he's the oulF child. What's up with Tommy?" asked Mr..McNaughton. "Well, today Alice got a young tyke to help carry her groceries home; she left him eating gingerbread ,In the kitchen, and later, when Maggie discovered the statue of St. Joseph gone, she was sure the youngster had taken it. The grocer knows him only as Tommy... "Do "you keep a shrine in the kitchen, Alice?" asked Mr. McNaughton, gravely, Jack Cullen grinned, and Alice explained that Maggie had been washing the status when the small boy Tommy apparently made off with it. "And if he is Tommy CLIFFORD,  said Alice in conclusion, "then I knew his mother years ago at school, and I CAN'T go down there and ask her boy ff he kidnapped my St. Joseph." "You know, Andrea was telling me something, a day or two ago, about some Tommy who wanted a favor; she told him to pray to St. Joseph," said Mrs, McNaughtom ."Andy's not asleep yet, Margie," said Mr. McNaughton. "Run up and see ff she can tell us anything. Andy's the bright- est, most logical child," he said with fatuous pride, as his wife hurried up- stalra Brightest or merely bright, An- drea came up to specifications with the story of Tommy Lawton's problem, Downstairs, Mrs. lcNaughton explained the situation, and the men began plan- ning how to affect the ransom of the stolen saint. "Harry, couldn't we go down to this boy's house, pretend you are recruiting for the Scout Troop or something, and at least see if Alice recognizes the young- ster ?" suggested Jack Cullen. This seemed a good plan. Andrea was abl to furnish the house number, and her father drove off with the Cullens. The house, they found, was a dingy frame structure, situated in a shabby section of town and occupied by several families. After two false sorties, they located the Lawton apartment and knocked diffidently upon the door. The small boy who opened the door glimpsed Alice and turned pale under his freckles. '%Iello,Tommy," she said. "We came to ask you if perhaps . . ." Tommy gulped down a sob, bolted into another room; it was very evident that no Scout Troop subterfuge would be necessary. The kidnapper had been tracked to his lair. "Are you Mxs. Lawton?" Jack asked the bewildered, rather helpless-looking woman staring at them above the jacket (Continued on page 30) ST. PATRICK ',.
