Upon the vital episodes of life one finds
It rather difficult to write. Yet happi
ness has come lo me at last, and a great
Joy that I have never known before.
The hour Is very Lite, but 1 must write
the happening of this day and tell tho
.tale that now has changed my life. The
future has become an El Dorado and a
happy land where heartaches die and
dreams come true
Things fell out In thl wise: After I
told the artist-man I did not love him
he went sadly off. 1 sat there In the
firelight all alone, and sadness fell upon
me, too. For love had come to mo too
laic. 1 had Just sensed tho brushing of
love's wings, and known that happiness
was not for me. The flitting shadow left
me lonelier than before.
A great temptation rame to me as I sat
In tho flickering firelight and gazed long
Into the glowing coals 1 wanted to re
call tho nrtlst-man and tell him whnt ho
wished so much Tj hear. Yet my Ideal'
and mv bettor self now hold me bnck. I
knew I did not lovo hlm-vct 1 felt so
lonely that temptation came to take life's
second best and marry Juit to ease tltH
new dull heartache.
Deep In the midst nf glowing coals I
framed my Idle fancies ond saw pictures
there. One face rose to my ees. a
dark, strong face t wanted to forget.
I tried to rouse mvsclf from thoughts
that never could mitic true. "You fool
ish girl," I said aloud, "to think all day
of some one who will never think ot
jou! Worse even, for he cares for some
one else, nome one much prettier, more
attractive, than yourself. If you must
think of love, and home, and happiness,
there is the nrtm-man, who cares so
much for ou. Why not marry him nnd
forget this other man?"
The time went drifting past as I sat
there, till daylight faded and long shad
ows fell. I must have sat In that low
chair before the tire for long, long hours.
At last 1 heard a mocment In tho
room. I thought my little hostess had
returned. She had gone out on some
lone shondng expedition, quite fortlllcd,
I think, by sentimental hopes anent the
English artist-man She would be dis
appointed when she hoard that I had

did not turn my head at first.
The crackling of tho coals and ticking
of the clock seemed strangely loud within
my ears. Then a voice spoke thut
made me start In sheer sin priseand
something moie It was no woman's
voice, but held a deep nnd Southern note.
My heart was beating in the oddest way
"Your friends seem not at home, be
cause I rang the hell for quite an age.
So I walked In and find you hero alone,
like little Cinderella sitting by the fire."
I did not speak Whv did the world
hold so much pain- Whv did I want
to hear that voice, yet all the while It
hurt me so"

You." Why had ho chosen such an air
today? Its very sweetness filled the shad
owy room with pain.
1 must have sat there In the firelight,
tense nnd silent, until Mr. Dennlsion
spoke once again. What could he mean,
what was he saying to me? Why was
there this strange suffocating feeling in
my throat?
"I came tonight because I collld not
s.tay away, dear little English girl," he
said. He crossed the room nnd knelt
beside my chair. "I think t fell In love
with that sweet painting of ou quite
a oar ago Do you think yob could ever
grow lo care for me?"
To caro for him! 1 coutd not speak. Tho
firelight flickered on his fine, dark head,
ntid showtd reflections in his handsomo
eyes. Could such great happiness be
true' He leally cared for me!
"t thought I thought you were en
gaged," I stammered foollshlv, nt last.
"I icttnlnlv am not," s.tld he, "and
never was! Perhaps you nro thinking of
my ward, the girl who was my dinner
partner tho other evening. Sho Is Just a
child. The only person whom 1 long to
marry Is Just you It you will have me?"
If I would have him! Why, 1 was
nfmld that all the lovo 1 felt would show
there In my face, and so I turned my
head nuay.
"I want to know," said he, "because, 1
care so very much'"
"I think that 1 care Just a little hit."
1 murmured then. I was afraid to toll
him more. Woids seemed sn futllo to cv
prrss how very much I cared for him.
Mv heart was thiobbing on a. note of per
fect happiness.
He took my liand and Held it tlgm in
his. At moments such as these I think
that Kl Dorado comes to all of us. I
know 1 touched the topmost rung of hap

satisfied, nil the old heartaches taken

The organ grinder In the street kept
playing "Just Decause It's You" and
now 1 thought there never was n gajer,

hail changed from minor cadence to one

land where dreams come true!

Odd Bridal Customs
In Servla bride arc kidnapped jWhetl
the lover has made up his mind that the
girl Is ready to marry him, he nnd his
irlends arm themselves with riflis, go up
to the girl's house, seize nnd enrrj her
off to church, nnd get married on the
spot. Otherwi'o the courtship Is almoxt
entirely conducted bv the men of the
family. The father of the prospective
bridegroom and two or throe male friends
call on the girl's father and bring them
a large cake of wheat nnd poppy seeds
The men of both families have supper and
haggle over terms of marriage. When
these terms nro arranged tho ton's father
puts some llowors and money on the cake
and hands It to the girl's father. This
net constitutes the betrothal contract.
Milady's Toilet Table
A great m.inv persons do not understand
the value of face steaming. Thl Is most
essential to a clear complexion.
The enthusiast must guard against
steaming all the skin ofT her face, fer It
she bolls a pan of water and holds her
face"ln the escaping steam sho will really
injure the skin. But real face st"amlng
should begin by heating n towel in hot
water and iippljiiig to tho face This
should be hot enough to make the l,ln
tingle. Tho idea Is to heal the skin i
well, but not to burn It. Face steaming I
by means of warm towels Is a good thing,
but when tho pores are thoroughly opened
th fnce can he washed.
The larbullzed face bath is iery good
for the skin. It tonslsts of a few drops
of carrollr acid to a large basin of water.
The benzotnated faeo bath is also excel
lent. A little benzoin Is dashed into a
basin of water and brlsklv stirred The
whole is ued as a face bath It con

is the Day of the Amateur Dressmaker, for
Individuality is the Keynote of the Season.
Theie is so much variety shown by
the frocks tit signed for autumn nnd
winter wear that it takes trained eye
to seize upon the definite features that
may be cataloged as characteristic of
tho presnt stsles.
Motives such as the basque and tho
tunic are taken by the modiste and
played upon In all the keys of color
and combination and with so mtnv
variations that the underlying Idea that
nevertheless dominates is noted. If at
all. unconsclouslv.
The amateur dressmaker ought to be
nble to manufacture her own clotnes
this season very successfully. Starting
out with a good model, she can mako
whatever changes In It that will best
adapt it to her own nppearanc and
thereby give it an Individuality that Is
more to be desired than the ownership
of one of th original models that will
be duplicated a hundred times and worn
nil over the country.
Color combinations are worth a study
quit of themselves. With some people
color is an instinct, nnd while It can
hardly be thrust upon any one, It can
certninly be acquired, to an extent at
any rate, by the assiduous and earnest
minded This is a generation as much addicted
to color as to dancing. Perhaps the two
go hand In hand, and perhaps, likewise,
it is a deliberate flinging of the gauntlet
in the face of a Puritan and Quaker
What Other

For the numbers who voluntarily or of
necessity forego meat the following will
be of use:
This requires 5 hard-boiled eggs cut In
quaiters, small bottle of macedalne vege
tables, I pint aspic jelly, Hi gills whipped
cream. 1'j tablespoonfuls grated Parme
slan cheese, seasoning
Pour a shallow layer of the Jelly Into
a plain-bordered mold, and when this is
set arrange some of the quarters of eggs
upon It with a few of the macedoine
vegetables between. Pour a little of the
remaining aspic ovr this and stand the
mold In a basin of cold water until It
becomes firm, and continue to use eggs,
vegetables and the Jelly In same manner
until the mold Is full When Jelly Is
sufnctently set. turn the border out of
the mold and fill the middle with whipped
cream, adding as seasoning a little salt
and curry powder, mixed with grated
cheese. Serve on salad leaves.
As many hard-boiled eggs as desired,
butter, seasoning, lnegnr, two table
spoonfuls of asparagus, one raw egg,
bread crumbs, some blanched almonds
and mashed potatoes are needed.
Bake the potatoes, remove the Inside
snd pass It through a potato-presser Into
a basin, season well with celery salt,
pepper and nutmeg, add a small quantity
of milk and a large quantity of butter,
and beat potatoes with a wooden spoon
until light. Press them firmly Into a
round cake-tin, well buttered, and bake
In a quick oven for a half hour; cut the
eggs through the mlddlo and remove
yolks, pass them through a sieve and
beat Into a fairly soft paste with soma
warm butter, season with salt, pepper,
nutmeg and a few drops of vinegar, then
mix In one or two tablespoonfuls of
cooked asparagus tips and nil the whites
with the mixture. Pip the eggs into

A Way to Happiness
Cultivate a philosophical vein of
thought If you have not what you like,
like what you have until you can change
your environment.
Do not waste your vitality in hating
your life; find something In It which Is
worth liking and enjoying, while you keep
sieniiuy at worn to maKe It what you
desire. Be happy over something every
Make yourself worthy of a true friend-
, ship and worthy love, and, if any of
l these emotions seem to prove enhemeral.
remember they were not the realities
the real ones will come to you, since
you are worthy.
Worth Remembering
We may not accomplish much, but the
quality of our work may give it great
ness. Cheerful tempers manufacture solace
and Joy out of very unpromising ma
terlals. Your anxiety does not empty tomorrow
of Its sorrow; but ahl It empties today of
Its strength.
The shortest and surest way to live
with honor In the world Is to be in
reality what wo would appear to be.
A religion without thanksgiving, praise
and Joy, is like a flower without tint,
perfume or honey, There may be such a
flower, but surely no one would care to
pluck it.

The Creation of Eve
"When Adam's rib was taken from him
In sleep, he lost more than was left him,
and woke to find all hts finer self gone
from him. He was left a blundering bumble-bee;
to the rib that was taken from
him clung the courage of the lioness, the
wisdom of the serpent, the gentleness of
the dove, the cunning ot the spider, and
the mysterious charm of the firefly that
dances In the dusk. But to that rib also
clung the desire to be loved. Otherwise,
In the human race, the male would be
slain yearly like the drone of the hive.
But the strange thing that grew from
the rib, like flowers from burled carrion,
desired love. There was Its strength and
Its weakness." Mrs. Ames, by E. F. Ben
son, Disconcerting
"What are you laughing at, dear?"
"I was just thinking how you used to

to keep you away from tho piano."
