FLASHES FROM "STARS"
"It Is an open question," says William Collier,
"whether the married man hnd best take tho
blame upon himself after a quarre' with his
wife and endeavor to smooth matters over
peaceably or not. Sometimes the wife is so
snippy and Indifferent after tho poor man's
efforts that he regrets having taken this course.
I know a young couple of the stage to whom
Just this sort of thing happened.
"They had been qunrrellng, and the young
husband, regretting It and being anxious to
'mako up,' brought a little gift for tho wife.
" 'Edna,' he said, 'come here. Aren't yod
curious to know what is In this packago?'
" "Oh, not very,' replied Edna, belligerently,
as she glanced at the package In question. 'I
rather think I can endure the strain."
" 'Well, he said, coaxlngly, trying to win her
to good humor, 'it's something for the one I love
best In all the world. Now, guess r

leave the room. 'I suppose, then. It's that pair
of new trousers you said you needed.'

Insisted last spring I go with her to Paris. I

terrible ovr there. They have taken her au
tomobile. All the hotels and shops are closed,
tho schools are made Into hospitals and ther
i no money In the banks. Sh herself cannot
caBh a check, and they only allow 5 per cent,
of deposits. She also says there Is no way of
getting out of Paris, all the trains being used
by the Government So I suppose that as soon
as she can get away she will come over here.
For my own sake. If I were not so worried for
my mother, and If I were sure she was safe. I
would sacrifice five lambs to the gods, because
they gavo mo the wonderful Inspiration of be

had been a nice little girl I would be In Paris
now, and perhaps may have starved to death."
