Yes, there to such a creaturo na tho
tod unselfish wife, though few husbands
may admit the fact. But she to a woman
with whom I havo tlttlo sympathy. For
tho superfluity of a. virtue may becomi
nothing moro nor less than a weakness
And the woman who overdoes her unself
fUhness show a flaw in character.
The wife who cheerfully resigns all her
pergonal dues and rights always strikes
mo aa oolorless. Sho dooBn't bother to
(insert herself. Probably she Is a moral
coward. In the lower classes she Is a
physical coward, afraid of personal vit
lenco on the part of some drunken hus
band. Almoot always Is sho morally lazy,
afraid to assert herself.
Every wife has a right to her own
chare In the pleasures and tho relaxations
of life. If she elves them up, thon, In
nine cases out of ten she Is not only spoil
In? her own cha.rs.oter, but Bhe Is ruining
tho character of those around, 'and par
ticularly that of her husband.
"Yes, Mary to very unselfish," admitted
a husband tho other day. (It Is somewhat
rare for tho average husband to admit
any such thing, bjr the way.) "Bha really

Now, this man wm quite well off, from
the llnanclal point of view, and could well
have afforded a couple of maids to do the
work of tho houao. But "Mary would

indigestion If I didn't do tho cooking for
them," she asserted solemnly. "And you

"But doesn't that tie you down to the
kitchen drtadfullyJ" I asked.
"Well, yes. It does," was the answer;
"but I don't mind. Ho likes certain
things, for lunch that take a very long
time to prepare, so I spend all my morn
ings In the kitchen. I've always done
that, and it would hurt John very much
if I let htm lunch In town now, llko hto
other men friends."
John certainly was selfish but, on In
Yestlgatlng things, one could see that ho

"Oh, yes, I'm crazy about It," the llttlo
wife replied quickly. "But, then, tho
children are so fond of It that I don't llko
to tako up ono of their Beats. Tho car
only holds four comfortably, and the
children' don't llko to be crushed. Bo I
seldom go out In the car."
So this woman was not only ruining
tho disposition of her husband by her
unselfishness, but thoroughly spoiling her
children, too. Ao I had fully expectod,
they proved to bo selfish, exacting,
thoughtless little things, bent on their
own pleasure nnd hoedless of their moth
er's drab existence, "Glvo up" was a
phrase thoy could not adequately com
prehend. Never In their petted lives had
they been called upon to give up nny
thlng. "Mother will do that," was the In
variable cry. "Mother will stay at home.
Mother will write that exercise for me.
Mother will pay that bill."
And mother Invariably did. That was
tho pity of It. Therein lay the ruination
of the family.
The eldest daughter wanted a new dress
for a party. Only ono day remained till
the great event. There was scarcely
tlmo to make ono at homo and, besides,
sho couldn't sew well. There was no
necessity, for mother always did every
thing. "Oh, mamma," she would cry, "can't
you coax father to let me havo money
for this dress today, and I'll run Into
town and get It right away?"
"No, dear," said mother quickly; "don't
bother father about money. I'll make the
dross for you tonight"
And sho did.', She sat up all night long
to make that gown, and It looked beau
tiful. But her eldest daughter barely
thanked her. Certainly her husband
"You look very pale and seedy today,
Mary," he said at lunch in an injured
tone, "I can't think how you'vo lost all
your pretty color and how you'vo grown
so haggard looking! I'm BUre you have
everything you want here. By the way,
this lunch Is miserably cooked today."
And "Mary" said nothing. Sho didn't

and then, nfter a moment's silence,
"You are behaving very oddly. Jack,"
she Bald "very oddly indeed. I expect

going to talk of that now you've got to

or you'll go to prison. Do you understand
that? Prison not the sort of place you'd
core for at all."
"Are you mad?" she said, struggling.
to free herself from tne gTip or ms nngers.
'What was It for?" he said. "Money,
I Buppose or did Vertlgan threaten to tell
every one that you had never been mar

He let go of her and ahe staggered
backward Into a chair. Then he told her
what Lgrd Arthur had told him, almost
word for word.
"Is that all?" she said.
"Is It not enough?"
"That I happened to be at St Pancrae
the day an attempt was made to carry off
young Wimberley? That I happened to
know Dick Meriet? That I am acquainted
with Mr, Vertlgan one of your masters?

"It is enough," he said harshly. But
he knew that It was not enough, that It
was, in fact, very little Indeed.
"Why, you have not even proof that this

anything to do with auy"s disappearance,"
"No, but you shall give us the proof.

"I do not care for him. I Jtave not seen

shall ever see him again. Now look here.
Jack, if you like to belieye that your
sister to a vile woman"
"Lord Arthur believes It," he broke In
roughly, "and there is enough evidence
to convince Lady Wimberley. Of course,
I can never.marry ber npw."
"I see," she said slowly. "It is the
thought of that which to troubling you.
Now, took here, Jack, you must be
sensible. We've got to nnd the boy.
That's tn chief thing. I'll do all J can
for you, but you mustn't get Into your
head that I know anything about Guy's
disappearance. It's quite likely that this
fellow Vertlgan has something to do
with It. You admlttod that tho man had
you In his power. Perhaps that la why
he came to Ilarptree.
Sho smiled as sho looked at him. In
stead of troubling to defond herself any
further, sho had chosen to attack him.
Ho could not meet tho inquiring look in
"Perhaps." sho went on, "he is In an
Impregnable position. Supposing he were
to comu to you tomorrow and say to you,
'I know where Wlmberloy Is, but I do
not chooso to tell you,' What would you
"What should I do7" Erlelgh echoed.
"Yes. Would you daro to hand htm
over to tho pollco, knowing that ho could
ruin you and ruin the school sweep
away your Ilfework with a few words?"
Ho was silent, and then suddenly tho
truth broko In upon him. His sister had"
been mixed up In this plot to nbduct
Lord Wimberley. Sho had threatened to
betray her accomplice, Vertlgan had told
her that If she betrayed him he would
ruin her brother; Vortigan had never
asked her to be hto wife,
"You you aro mixed up in this?" he
stammered. "I Bee It all now. You
wished to get out of It when I I became
engaged to Lady Wimberley. Vertlgan
has threatened to betray mo. When you
came to me the other day with that
story nbout his haying proposed to you
I quite understand."
Sho did not speak, Her face waB very
white, and Bhe looked down at tho fire.
"Grace," he said fiercely, "do you think
I'd let my own Interests stand In the
way7 For Heaven's sake, If you know
anything that will help me to find young
Wimberley tell me."
"I know nothing," she answered In a
low voice. "I cut myself off from them
some time ago." .
"But you knew that they Intended to
take the boy away. You can come for
ward and give that evidence to tho po
lice." "I could do so If I choose."
"And you do not choose to do bo?
"I do not. If you take me Into court I
shall perjure myself."
"Because my evidence would not help
you to find young Wimberley. and It
would destroy you completely'
"Do not think of me put me aside."
She shook her head. "My dear Jack,"
shu said, "you havo behaved very de
cently to meall my life. Do you think
I'm going to Bimum you up? It Isn't oven
as If my doing so would help you to
find Wimberley, You and Lord Arthur
have already Buspected Vertlgan and
Dick Meriet. I can't help you to bring
the crime home to them. I know nothing
about this affair at all absolutely noth
ing. You had better tell me all you
He told her, as briefly as possible.
When he had finished she said:
"It's possible Vertlgan and Meriet have
nothing to do with it I suppose that
hasn't occurred to you,"
He made light of the suggestion, nnd
once more began to entreat her to come
forward and tell the police what she
knew about Vertlgan and Meriet But she
was resolute, and would not give way an
inch. An hour later he left her. He
could not afford to waste any mora time.
Rut he had quite made up his mind
that ho would force her tof speak the
truth even If the telling of It branded
him as a murderer In the eyes of all

mean that pork can bo bought at a lower
price, since this to tho season of Its prime.
It Is also the season when pork Is most

One of the best cuts ot pork at this
season, quite unknown to many house
keepers, Is "a fresh ham." This to tho
hind leg before It is smoked. It usually
weighs from 7 to 12 pounds, and Is best
when roasted. The meat then tastes quite

deceive even tho best of us. The meat
Is tender, whlto and of a much more del

economical cut, because any left-overa

For those who llko the smoked taste,
the regulation ham Is always In season.
What cannot bo done with a slice of ham?
In these high-price days even "ham and"
