Scaring Away Prospective Suitors
Such ft superfluity ot nclvlco linn flooded
Hie feminine world on tho over Rrecti
proposition of how to secure, tend and
guard masculine affection that It Is hnrd
to find anything original to offer on the
subject. That the ticco'slty of guarding
this masculine affection however diluted
And feeblo It be Should arise In the
wholesale wny It hn arisen Is decidedly
disconcerting, put such Is the case. And
women nro only too wllllim to put forth
tho effort ho matter how much of n
fool the matt may be. For some women
have followed the scriptural Injunction
most literally and do Indeed "suffer fools
However, although many men will re
fuse to believe It, there Is a tcverse side
to the picture. Some women refmln from
racking their brains as to the due and
itmely securing of masculine homage, and
oven go farther In seeking to scare away
prospective suitors, tf thoy nre at all
soft-hearted, the methods they adopt for
tho searlng-away process are apt to bo
crowned with poor success. I.Ike the con
ceited lover of tho Immortal Elizabeth
Bennett, tho suitors may mistake a firm
and decided refusal for bashful encour
agement. The complications that arise
are confusing to all parties.
There are some really sure recipes for
curing the ardent lover which have never
yet been known to fall, and these re
cipes have been employed successfully for
generations. Unfortunately, their very
real cfllcacy has not always been clearly
understood by the fair manipulators and
the latter have burnt their fingers and
their hearts In the process.
Bo the damsel who only "thinks" that
she wishes to scare away soma would-be
suitor had better bo rather careful as
to her way or handling these methods.

In all things conversational and In par

what happens! Moreover, let her have
real arguments and real knowledge of
her subject to back her up and In tho
war pf wits which ensues Just let her
beat Edward In one or two Instances
and he'll never get over It.
A second antidote for love Is a strong
sense of humor. If Angelina has a

THE FEBRUARY FURNITURE SALE
By MRS. CHRISTINE FREDERICK
Author "The New Housekeeping."
"Desirable 3-pIece suite," "perfect re
productions of period furniture," "elegant
mahogany rocker onl," so run tho ads,
that all who read may run and purchase.
The February furniture sale Is a stand
ard Institution with most of the better
stores, and few. Indeed, are tho home
makers who cannot avail themselves of It
for a purchase, large or small.
Buying furniture Is perhaps one of the
last kinds of shopping for which the
housekeeper Is trained although some
women hava a "knack" about this, as
others do for cooking. I like to think ot
furniture from t,ho Investment point of
view not as a temporary bit of my house,
but aa a part and parcel of It, of me, and
of my Individuality If I can recognize
It! If I have this permanency viewpoint
I shall be more inclined to buy quality In
stead of number, and value rather than
It coats money to make good, substan
tial furniture. Wood Is Increasingly
scarce and dear; workmanship and crafts
men cost more today than ever before.
One cannot expect, therefore, to buy both
good wood and good workmanship cheap,
No high standard of workmanship can
be encouraged In this country unless the
American hotnemaker learns to know
quality, sincerity and craft In the fur
niture she buys and be willing to pay
What wo may buy today will depend on
what we have already bought, and what
pieces are already In our homes. Lucky
Indeed Is the woman who has a carefully
thought-out plan In buying. She will not
be swayed by any supposed "fashion," but
will adjust her furniture to her needs
and the kind of establishment she is
living In. I never forget the home of a
little bride who was living In a pretty
five-room flat Her parlor boasted a '
piece" set, beautiful mahogany and green
velours, coaling perhaps 1100, But It didn't
fit! It was Just as' out of place as a ball
fires in a simple home tea. It needed
TBPra'ToottT, mora space, higher ceilings
and e. totally different setting to show
it off. It mads the little room seem
stuffy and hot, and tacked all the cozlness
tint such small. Intimate rooms needed to
mike1 them attractive.
While Impossible to make a furniture
digest In thla short talk, these things can
bo excepted as general principles:
U Large pieces, like davenports, divan
and armchair need both floor and wall
pa.ee to show them off. and prevent them

Scotch, of course. All people with a
trong senso of humor nre Scotch or
American or Irish. Hut the man In the
enso was English, And his English sense
of humor was Just a little bit different
from her Scotch sense of humor. Herein
Ilos the tragedy ot the piece,
Well, this Englishman had a little
plcco of hair that wouldn't He flat on his
head, no matter how much he oiled It.
And It worried him dreadfully.
He usod to spend hours and hours
training It to He down and worrying over
It but all to no purpose. It was what's
known In Scotland as a "cow's lick."
That comical little tuft of hair stood
up In Its own comical way, for all tho
world like tho pictures of tho Immortal
The girl happened to belong to a Dick
ens society at that time. So, of course,
she saw pictures of Mr. Mlcawber. The
similarity In tho uprcarlng of that little
tuft of hair cnught her eye nt once. So
sho chilstened her lover "Mr. Mlcaw
bcr." And he never forgave her no, Indeed!
1113 vanity was outraged. And all due to
her sense of humor, too. It scared him
away. The exercise of tho saving graco
of humor Is an antidote for male nffec
tlon. I knew nnothcr man who wns perfectly
crauy about a girl. She didn't reciprocate
the gentle passion, unfortunately. It only
bored her. So she determined to euro
him. And her plan had a wonderful suc
cess. "Jim, ' said she, one day, "I'm going
shopping this morning. I've 10 stores to
visit, and I want jou to come along and
carry tho parcels."
So "Jim" came. He was qulto unsus
picious but then Iovo Is blind.
At the first store he had to wait a solid
hour for her. Ho played around among
the spring millinery for a while, and
even tried on a hat or two, facetiously,
for the amusement of the salesgirls. Out
after a bit even that palled.
At tho end of the hour tho lady of his
choice appeared. Just laden with par
celswhich, of course, she handed over
to him. And they went to another store.
There sho repeated the samo perform
ance. But In this Instance ho had even
moro parcels to carry than the first time.
After a bit he was a walking parcels
man. He grew hotter and hotter, and
crosser and crosscr, but sho didn't spare
him. Not she!
"It will be Just like tills after wo are
married, Jim," sho assured him cheer
fully. "Vou are such a dear, good fellow
and such a help,"
But ho never was again. For she had
scared him away as indeed she had In
tended to. Tho carrying of two dozens
packages for four hours on end Is a
splendid autidoto for love. It Is Infalli
ble. genuine or imitation mahogany show
scratches and dust most quickly, and
should be shunned by the hotnemaker
with little children or who desires to
avoid excessive cleaning labors. Better
a dull, waxed piece that Is clean, than a
gloss finished piece with "finger marks"
and a "bloom" which takes hours to re
move. 6. Avoid knobs, balls, spiral legs and
excessive carving If easy house cleaning
lo desired. Dignity and harmony He in
simple lines and few curves.
7. Choose leather, cushions and tufted
pieces wisely. Bo sure they are well
finished and not "leatherette" or of cheap
quality. Worn leather seats will make
an otherwise good chair appear old and
8. Small cheats of drawers or dressing
cases with separate mirrors are usually
better taste and easier to place In a room
than the "ready-made" bureau.
9. Don't buy a single piece of furniture
you don't need, that you think you will
tire of, or that Is uncomfortable.
10. Buy furniture, as Goldsmith's good
doctor married his wife "for wear."

CHAPTER XXXIX (Continued).
He searched the shelves In the library,
whistling Hko a boy. When ho found
the atlas ho opened It out on a table
pulled up two chairs and led Lady Wlm
berlcy to one of them.
"Here we nre," he said, when he had
found a map of the world. "Sandwich
Islands, like specks In a blue sky."
He ran his Angers down the lines of
longitude and latitude. Then he said:
"Latitude 46, longitude 13. That's tho
last place tho Marie Joseph was sighted.
It's as likely as not she drove further
south and went to pieces somewhere near
the Sandwich Islands."
Lady Wlmbcrloy looked at the map and
saw Its colors blurred In a rainbow-colored
mlot Then sho laid her hand on
Lord Wlmberley's shoulder.
"Arthur," sho said, In a low voice, "It
Is generous of you to be so glad this
this means the loss of everything to
He laughed heartily. "I've got alt I
want, Anne," he answered; "It's worth
more than the Wlmberley estates to see
She flung her arms across the atlas
and bowed her head between them and
burst into tears.
Six weeks later Guy Wlmberley once
moro set foot on his own land. There
were flags and feasts and fireworks and
rejoicings such as had never before been
seen either In Harp tree or Monksllver.
The whoe school had met him at the sta
tion and he had been carried shoulder
high through the town. Then ho had
been torn by force from his schoolfellows,
put Into a motor and driven up to Monk
sllver, with a crumpled collar and a torn
coat and hat that had been reduced to a
wreck of what a respectable hat should
be. He looked brown and well, and
grown almost to the stature of a man.
He pointed with some pride to a fluff on
his upper lip and chin, and said something
about not having had time lo Bhave.
As the motor drew near to the house he
Bcemed to grow nervous and uncomfort
able "I say, uncle," he said, "hope the
mater won't I mean I hope she won't
"I hope not, Guy," Lord Arthur an
swered with a smile; "but you do look
as If you'd been in the wars."
In the porch Joan was standing, and
when she saw her brother she rushed for
ward, and before the car had stopped she
had opened the door and flung her arms
round her brother's neck. She did not
say a word, but kissed him again and
again, until he gasped for breath.
"Here, I say, Joan," he exclaimed.
"Vou'ro choking mo. What with you and
the chaps down at Harptree there'll be
nothing of me left. Where'a the mater?"
"1 11 take ou to her. Guy." she aM
"at once. She wants to see you alone.
She Is In the library."
John Erlelgh came forward in the hall.
He looked very pale and thin. He gripped
the boy's hand without a word. Guy
"I say." he said, "you're my father now,
That's Jolly, Isn't It?"
"You'll bo a big fellow for the tower
Fourth." said Erlelgh.

baek as John Erlelgh took Lord Wlmber

said In a low voice. "She wished to see

The story of Guy Wlmberley" escape
was not so very wonderful after all. It
has been told many times in the history
of the world. The Marie Joseph, after
fighting a series of gale for more than a
month, foundered in a cyclone In latitude
W, longitude 15. The boy had owed his
escape tp the fact that he was supposed
to oe a gin, anq naa been the first

three lived for six months on the Island.
Then two of them made off with the
boat, leaving Guy Wlmberley and a man
of the name of Stanton behind them.
Stanton, a very decent fellow, so Guy
said, until ho found a means of brewing
some Intoxicating liquor from the Inside
of the cocoanut, got so drunk ono day that
ho fell oft a coral reef Into tho sea, and
was torn to pieces by sharks.
"If It hadn't been for that," said tho
boy, "and tho thought that the mater
was worrying over my death, I had tho
Jolllcst time of my life on that Island.
Robinson Crusoe wasn't In It."
"No work, eh? laughed Lord Arthur.
"No rotten school books? Well, you'll
havo to mako up for lost time. I don't
like to say It, Guy, but it seems to me
as If you you'd plajed Into those fellows'
hands a bit. Surely you weren't drugged
all the tlmo?"
"I was, uncle at least I think so. I
don't know what they gave me, but It
made me feel aa tf I were half asleep, as
If nothing mattered at all. I didn't want
to escape I Just let them take me
wherever they chose. It wob like being
In a dream, and I didn't wake out of It
until we had been a day at sea In the
boat. Then I suppose tho effect of the
drug worked off. I remember asking one
of tho sailors whero I was. He said,
'You're all right, miss,' and then wo both
roared with laughter."
Joan took her brother's arm and
"You'll find us a dull lot here," she
said, "after all your adventures."
He shook his head. Then he looked at
his mother and smiled.

"You dear old chap," said Joan.
Joan Mcrlet was married In the Abbey
Church of Harptree on the anniversary
of her mother's wedding day. There was
not even standing room In tho great
building, and vast crowds of people waited
outside, filling tho -wholo of the space
between tho entrance doors and the rail
ings around the Abbey close.
Over the former wedding, brilliant
though tho scene had been, there had
rostcd tho shadow of death, and even
the bride, In the hour of her great happi
ness, could not thrust the thought of her
dead son from her mind. There was no
such shadow over the marriage of Joan
Merlet. There was no sorrow for the
past, no fear for tho future. John Er
lelgh was a free man, nnd could look tho
world In the face. His wife and sister
had been reconciled. Lady Wlmberley,
her heart full of gratitude to God for
giving her boy back to her, had forgiven
John Erlelgh gave the bride away, and
a famous singer was James Travers' best
man. Tho world of art and music, as
well as the world of society, had flocked
to the wedding. The little town had
never before seen so many famous people
gathered together. Every ono felt that
It was a host suitable match, Brains
on the one side nnd wealth and beauty
on the other.
When the ceremony nt the church was
over there was a reception In the big
school. Mr. Murray was there, looking
very smart In top hat and frock coat,
and Senor Lopez very resplendent and
distinguished. Both seemed to be very
pleased with themselves, and they had
good reason to be, for each had a cheque
for JO.000 pounds In his pocket. The de
tective had visions of the little cottage
with roses In the garden, and tho Spaniard
could not keep his mind off his weather
beaten castlo In Spain. Dcnham, the de
tective, was also among the guests, and
Barker and Evans. Guy's tutor, and
Russell all of whom had played their
parts In tho grim story that had now
como to a close.
But when Joan had changed her dress
and the time for departure was at hand
and she found herself alone with her
motner in tier tied room, the sunshine
vanished from the girl's faco and tears
came Into tier eyes.
"Mother, dear," she said. "I hate
leaving jou. Why Is It there Is always
something lo spoil one's happiness?"
. Lady Wlmberley laughed bravely, "It's
your turn now, Joan,""she, said. "Today
a year ago it was you who were left
a forlorn little thlng-at the station. I'm
better off than you were then-for I've
got my husband and Guy,"
The girl flung her arms around her
mother's neck and kissed her paaslon
ately. "Mother, dear," she whispered, "I-I
have a secret to tejl tnt. ir- want you
to forgive me."
"Forgive you, dearest child?"
"Yes-for not telling you before. I-i
know all about Jlm-and hU mother."
"You-you know that. Joan? Oh. who
told you-who was wicked enough to tell
"Jim told me hlmself-a month ago
before -we decided on the day of the wed
ding. Ills-mother tqld him. but she made
him promise that ypu were not to know
until we were married. He offered to
release me. J laughed at hlm."
'Ob, Joan, dear, how cruel of yon to
have kept this from me. If you only
knew what I have surfered-hpw again
and again I have wondered If I were
doing right In keeping this from ypu "
"I gave Jim my word of honor, mother."
the girl broke In. "Oh. mother, dear.
don't be angry wltjt me. t was so
much better that I should know. As if
It would make any difference. I am
proud of Jlro-t can't tell you how proud
I am of him. No one else will ever know.

were worrying about that But I could

There was a knock at tho door, and
Joan's maid entered tho room.
"If you please, my lady." sho said, "the
motorcar Is waiting, and there Is only
Just tlmo to catch the train."
"I'm coming now, Loulso."

of that made me bitter, You have given
your daughter, but you have your son
and husband left. I have no one oh,
yes, of course, Jim will come and see me
often, and I shall go nnd Btay with them.
But It la not quite the same, Is It?
Well, you have all been very good to
me. And you will forgive, won't you?
We shall be friends," and she held out
her haruU Lady Wlmberley took It, and
then, leaning forward, kissed her.
"Of course, we shall be friends," she
said, "There Is a double tie between us
now. Good-night, dear,"
"Good-night," said Mrs, Travers in a
tired voice, "Oh, don't thlpk me un
grateful. I suppose It Is because I envy
you so much happiness."
She hurriedly left the room, and Lady
Wlmberley went to the window and drew
up the blind, It was a warm, still night,
and the moon shone brightly In the deep
blue dome of the aky. There was a
wonderfut fragrance of flowers rising up
from the bed beneath tho window. Part
of he garden was in tho moonlight and
part In the shadows under the walla of
the Abbey. Tho great church Itself
seemed tremendous and wonderful.
And aa she stood there at the open
window, looking up at the great Bquare
tower, she seemed to understand how
small human life and human joy and
sorrows must seem to the great monu
ment of stone that had watched over the
town and tho school for more, than 600
years, It stood there stanch as the very
rocks. Five hundred years hence It would
still be there. The tide of human life
ebbed and flowed around It. Generation
after generation worshiped under Its
vaulted roof. Kings and governments,
mannerp and customs and law changed
But this was changeless.
"Anna!" said a voice from the garden.
"Yes, Jack." she answered, and she saw
her husband come out of the shadows
Into the moonlight.
"Come out here. It's a ripping night.
You'll be all the better for a breath of
Sho made her way put Into the garden
and Joined her husband,
"It's tho sort of night." he said, "when
one feels-clean. Don't laugh at me. Anne.
I can't explain it. But that Is how it
feels as If one' brain and heart had bad
a thorough good cleaning "
She did nbt laugh. "I think I know
what you mtan," she said, gently.
