A Sensible Plan Adopted
The holiday habit Is one that should
be ctllUtaled by all the hard workers of
th present limes.
"It is cany io talk," the tired worker?
way answer despondently, "but In these
days of rush and bustle and competition,
how can we afford to take holidays? We
have neither the time nor tho money."
UUl It Is wonderful what can be done
With a little determination.
t am of opinion that wives In particu
lar should lake regular "days off," This
In for the sake of their mentality as
much as for their health. The dally rou
tine of the pots and pans can prove al
most soul-kllllns to a woman. Wen don't
realize how much the average wife goes
through In the day.
"Thl three-meal proposition Is dread
fully hard." said a. tired little wife. "It
literally ties me to the house! As soon
as I have cooked one meal T have to
mart in on another. You havo no Idea
how I hate the very sight of food. It
Just seems as If my llfo was being drag

"What does your husband think about

"Oh, he just doelti't think." answered
the little wife despondently. "You can't

"Didn't you let him know how hard
you worked at home?" asked the sym
pathetic friend indignantly.
"Oh. yes," said ths -wife, "but he only
emlled indulgently, as if I were a petted
child who had to be humored. You can't
convince a man that wives have a hard

A number of wives decided lately to
cultivate the holiday habit all the year
round. Every Saturday afternoon they
went off on a week-end walking four
with their husbands.
"I have found It an excellent plan,"
laid an attractive young wife. "My hus

Saturday. We lunch together In town,
than take the train to some place about
10 miles out of the city and begin our

by parcel post. We always arrange be

we get up early, and continue our walk.
At about 8 o'clock on Sunday night we

Lord Arthur and Danham glanced at
each other as much as to say, "The fel
low Isn't such a fool aa he looks." Then
the three men seated themselves In the
cart and the horse went slowly down the
gentle slope from the marshland to the
sands. A minute later Its feet were splash
ing in the water, and the cart lumbered
along with Its heavy load, now passing
over dry land and now almost up to the
axle In some current that aoourcd a gully
through the flats.
"I hope we shant ret washed away
"No fear," laughted the laborer. Too
muoh ballast-gee up, Mary."
At last they reached the green elge of
the marsh, and Lord Arthur, standing up
in the cart, had a clear view of the whole
Island. There was not a road or path of
any kind to be seen merely a green ex
panse of coarse grass and znarshweeds.
"We're got to gt over to the seaward

"Naw," said the man, 'but I can drtra
He turned the h,ore's bead and the cart
lumbered slowly round to the other side.
Here there was a beach of shingle, and
the water ran deep close to the island.
The three men alighted and began to un
load the cart. ,In less than ten minutes all
the bags were piled up In a heap at the
edge of the grass, where they would be
safe, even at high tide. Lord Arthur gave
the laborer a sovereign and the man
touched his greasy cap.
"I'd like," he said elowtyi. "to be dotrf

off at a trot Lord Arthur and Denham,

said, "at once."
"You'd better do nothing of the sort.
Tou're not likely to overtake him, and
we've arranged to stay here."

case and lit It. Then he looked at the
mainland with a puzzled frown. The
horse was still atanding patiently by the
edge of the road and trjlng to make a
meal off the canty herbage. The motor
was out of sight, and not even a thin
cloud of dust remained to mark Its trail
across the level plain of marshes.

The man came up to the horse and,
seising It by tho bridle, turned Jt round.
Then he jumped up into the cart and
began to gesticulate, throwing his arms

land and out to sea. After a, mtnuto of
these antics he lashed the horse with his

"I don't know what to think. I only

Denham put his hand In his pocket and
took out an automatla pistol.
"I think, my lord," ho said slowly, "that
we may have to make a fight for It.
They'll oome on us when It ts dark."
"Take the money and give us nothing
in return, eh?" ,
"Something like that, my lord,"
The sun sank below the horizon, and
the gray twilight came up from the east
like a shadow. The twilight deepened
Into darkness, and lights gleamed out
along the coast, sparkling brightly In the
keen, clear atmosphere. But none of the
lights moved, save one far away in the
main channel, and that belonged to some
great steamer going down toward the
mouth of ths Thames. Lord Arthur and
the detective sat down with their backs
to a pile of canvas bags the only shel
ter they could find on the wind-swept Isl
and Their hands were In their pockets
and their teeth chattered with the cold
"A nice Job this, Denham," grumbled
Lord Arthur, "tpon my word, I wish
they'd come. A bit of fighting would
warm us up."
"Shall we go off at low tide, my lord?"
"And leave the money here? Not muoh.
As aoon-ns tt ts daylight you can go and
find the police. WVU take book the gold
and hsvo a. look for my oar. X dare say
there'll he some oonrmunJeatloa from the
scoundrels If they have really been pre
vented from turning up."
Denham relapsed Into silenoe. The
prospect of spending the night on the
Island waa not a very pleasing ons. And,
as the wind hissed past in the darkness
and ths noise of the shingle being sucked
back by the waves made an almost con
tinuous roar, he thought longingly of his
snug room at Monksllver, and the warmth
and gaiety of the servants' hall. Lord
Arthur filled and lit a pipe, and nearly an
hour passed before he epoke again.
"Keeping awako?" he queried.
"Tes, my lord. If s hardly oamfortable
enough for me to fall asleep."
"I suppose not, Denham. Heard noth

"Thank you, my lord,- ha said. "That
does warm one up a bit."
Lord Arthur put the flask back into-hls
pocket and rose to his feet.
"Ill sit round the other side of thla gold
mine," he said, "If 11 be better to have
one of uo on each aide,"
die took up his position, to windward.
Xt waa oolder here, and the thin mist of
pray drove In his faoe from the sea.
When another half-hour had passed he
stood up and began to walk, up and down
the edge of the shore, stamping his feet
to bring some warmth Into them. Tea
yards forward and ten yards back hs
walked, and when he had dons thla for
perhaps the hundredth time ha paused,
and. taking his field-glasses from their
leather case, looked through them sea

quite motionless. TheA he turned and

The light came nearer, moving toward
the Island from tho east Then It dis

had both vanished,

and round, she Is going anyhow."
The lights, now one, now the other,
now both together, came closer and closer,
dancing up and down on the ctest of the
waves Denham and Lord Arthur moved
quickly to the eastern end of the Island
and stood there, watching and wondering
If there was any one on board the boat

For ten minutes neither of them spoke,

"Walt! Not a minute. If you're afraid,

"Oh, rm not afraid, my lord," said
Denham, and he followed Lord Arthur
on to the smooth, wet ridge of sand. Be
fore they had gone a dozen yards their
feet splashed tn the water. Ten yards
farther on they were up to their knees
and small waves splashed them as high
as tho waist. The water did not get any
deeper, but by the time they reached the
stranded boat they were wet through.
Lord Arthur took the port light out of
its socket, and the outline of the vessel
showed olearly In the red glow. It waa

seven feet tn the beam, with a cabin ex
tending from the bows to within 10 feet

"Seems sound enough." said Lord
Arthur aa they climbed on board.
"Tes," Denham replied! "if she'd come

They found the oookplt half full of

of ruga and blankets.
"No one here, my lord," said Denham.

Lord Arthur made his way through the
water to the far end of the cabin and

waist were pale pink roses and a big bow
of taffeta was worn at the neck opening.
Tho high laos collar was particularly
pretty and suited Elinor's type of beauty
She wore velvet slippers of the samo
mustard shade as her skirt, and prettily
adorned with large silver buckles.
I did admire Elinor's gown Immensely.
Women are on the go so much nowa
days that they fall to realize the value
of relaxation aa a beautlfier. They think
that they can run around to bridges, teas,
dansants, dinners and such things day
after 'lay end not show the efeots of It
This is a physical Impossibility. Tou
can't lose sleep without showing It, sooner
or later, and It doesn't take very long.
Beauty la a very elusive thing, and it
Includes so much that to be truly beau
tiful a woman must be more or less of a
paragon. In the first place, she must be
healthy. If you are anemic, or If your
face Is too flushed, your looks are bound
to suffer In proportion. Besides this she
must be happy. It Is a wise woman who
knows the value of happiness as a beau
tlfier. It stands to reason that the face
mirrors the mind, and If you are thinking
kindly, helpful thoughts and doing kindly,
helpful deeds yqur face will show It. A
On the Subject of Children
Do you make your little girl or boy a
nuisance or a delight to your friends?
This is what one hostesB said after she
was alone with her husband for the usual
"talk over" after a dinner party.
"I never knew Laura could change so.
Wlven she wrote me that she was in
town, I thought she would Just All out our
party, and so I asked her up. I knew
Bhe was devoted to her children, but 1
never thought that shs talked of nothing
else. I haven't seen little Bobby, but 1
could give you a detailed account of
everything he ever said, thought or did
since his first birthday.
"Every time some one tried to change
the conversation by mentioning some
thing else, It reminded her ofpne of
Bobby's bright remarks. Of course, she
didn't know how she was boring every
body, or Bhe wouldn't have done It, but
you know what a confirmed bachelor Tom
Is, and he fairly made me shiver, he
looked so ferocious."
"Well. I think it la beautiful for peo-
pie to know something about children,"
said her husband, "no matter whether
It is a hardened old bachelor or a grumpy
old maid or a tired business man. It
makes people better to come In touch now
and then with the Joys and Borrows of
ohlldren even though they be other peo
ple's children. At the same time, there
Is a limit to such appreciation and Inter
est. When will mothers come to realize
that people fall to see the cute and cun
ning traits of little Bobby In the process
of growing up?"
"It Is a hard Individual who doesnt
respeot a mother and appreciate the great
love that Js hers, the like of which love
Is unknown to the world. At the same
time she can keep her friends and draw
to herself the friendship and sympathy
of others if she respeots tho. truth of the
statement that It ts a bore to listen, to
stories about people unknown to every
one," said the hostess.
