Lawton nodded in as sent, but almost as if not too sure of the fact. Through the open door they Could see Tommy face down on his bed; Harry McNaughton went into the room, patted the boy on the shoulder. He grinned broadly as he caught sight of he statue on the high chiffonier: St. Joseph, with a Christmas tree candle in front of him, and a sprig of hemlock stuck in a glass that had once held cheese. The others crowded to the door, as Tommy sat up and began to explain his reason for taking the little statue. His mother went over to the chiffonier, absently straightened the little spray of hemlock. "I used to have great devotion to St. Joseph when I was a little girl," she murmured, half to herself. "It is funny that Tommy, too, should turn to him in time of need." "Are you a Catholic, Mrs. Lawton?" Harry McNaughton asked her, gently, and pitied her when she answered sadly, "I used to be." After Tommy had been assured that no major crime would be chalked up against .him, he was persuaded to go to bed; St. Joseph was tucked securely into Jack Cullen's overcoat pocket, and he and Alice hesitantly asked Mrs. Lawton if there was any way in which they could help her. "Oh, I've made such a mess of my life," she burst out. "I grew up in Baltimore; an aunt brought rn up; but then I came here to work, and I met Bob Lawton. He hated my Church, and I was fool enough to marry him before a Justice oi  the peace. Then, when Tommy was only three years old, he de- serted us. I never heard from him but once, when he wrote that he had ob- tained a divorce from me. HE divorced ME. I could never tell my aunt; I lied to her; I said he died in an auto accident. She enrolled him in the St. So]anus . . . and he's probably married to another woman, with never a thought of Tommy and me. Auntie wants us to come to her in Baltimore; she's getting old and feeble, and would be glad to give us a home. But I can't go, I can't!" The reason for the emphatic "can't" was slow in coming, but emerged under the gently questioning of the sympathetic and interested Cullens and Harry McNaughton. In Baltimore there was an o l d neighbor and schoolmate, J o e Leonard, who could not understand why the harassed widow would not marry him and let him make a home for her and young Tommy. "But, Mrs. Lawton, if you were mar- zed by a 3ustice of the peace," began Jack Cullen, but Harry interrupted to say, "Jack, I think she should have a talk with Father Kelly." It took some persuading, but finally Mrs. Lawton agreed that she would keep any appoint- ment Harry made for her at the rectory. Her money worries were settled by a "temporary loan," and the CuIlens that night placed St. Joseph back on his little shelf with a feeling that he had exercised his fatherly care in behalf of this strayed sheep. Andrea, too, thought that St.-Joseph had lived up to his reputation when a few weeks later Tommy Lawton told her that he was going to Baltimore to live, In a big house of his own and eventually with a brand new father. BURIEN - "I told you St. Joseph was the Good Provider," she said, but added somewhat aggrieve dly, "though I'm sort of sur- prised, Tommy, that he did so much for you, since you're a Prodessint." Andrea was not one to change convictions easily. - "Oh, but Andrea, I'm not a Prles- int any more," disclaimed Tommy. "Father Kelly baptized me last Sunday. And now I have a kattykism. It is," said Tommy, with a burgeoning local pride, "the best kind there is---it's a BALTI- MORE kattykism !"
