What, mother. Is meant bjr a "bouse
party?" I read of It often these days.
A house party, child, is one where
Hi® hostess has to worry about sheots,
as wall as tablecloths.
What, mother. Is a debutante?
It Is a name, my dear, given to a

which makes her much harder to get
along with than If she goes by the old
fashioned name* of "one of the young
What, mother, is a compliment?
It is that gentle art, my child, that
If used with nicety as a handle will
open any door
What, mother mine, Is ambition?
It Is a praiseworthy hope and de

IN Memory's Mansion are wonderful roorrw,
And wo wander about them at will; »
And pause at the casements, where boxes of blooms
Are sending sweet scents o'er the sill.
We lean from a window that looks on a lawn;
From a turret that looks on the wave.
But draw down the shade when we see on some glade
A stone standing guard by a grave.
To Memory's attic I clambered one day
When the roof was resounding with rain,
And there, among relics long hidden away,
I rummaged with heartache and pain. n
A hope long surrendered and covered with dust,
A pastime, outgrown and forgot,
And a fragment of love all corroded with rust;
Were lying heaped up in one spot.
And there on the floor of that garret was tossed
A friendship too fragile to last,
With pieces of dearly bought pleasures that cost
Vast fortunes of pain in the past,
A fabric of passion, once vivid and bright,
As the heart of a robin in Spring,
Was spread out before me—a terrible sight—
A moth-eaten rag of a thing. .
Then down the deop stairway I hurriedly went,
And into fair chambers below;
But the mansion seemed filled with the old attic scent
Wherever my footsteps would go.
Though In Memory's House I still wander full oft,
No more to the garret I climb; 1 •
And I leave all the rubbish heaped there in the loft
To the hands of the Housekeeper, Time.

whispered to Wallace, worried.
"No, no," he laughed.

As Mrs. Spotswood turned she saw
Josie for the first time, for the girl
had instantly begun a low-voiced,
somewhat giggling confab with her old
friend, Broadway, and was sitting at
the far side of the center table, where,
to his disgust, the shaded lamp cast
but an imperfect light upon her face.
The Judge looked at them, grinning,
and then did a thing which made
Broadway take a silent oath to see
to it that all the hish-feed law practice

thenceforward and forevermore, as
long as he should live, should go to
no one but Judge Spotswood.
"Come, mom, please; they've got Im

"Yes, I know," said she, but was not
to be diverted from her hospitality.
"Broadway, will you have another
glass of lemonade?"
"No, thanks; not now."
"Josie, have a cup of tea?"
"I don't think so, Mrs. Spotswood."*
"Now, mom, please!" the judge ex
"Yes; I'm going," said his wife, but
added, as she cast at him an angry
glance: "You have to be polite to
people, don't you?"
With that she flounced out of the
room, and, to the distress of Broad
way, went alone. Then and only then
he realized that the judge intended to
remain. He was actually intent on
talking business. Broadway wondered
If he might not have to give his legal
work to some more intelligent attor
ney. Could not the gum business wait?
But no. The judge was purely busi
ness. There was no hope. The you.is
man reconciled himself as best he
"I've explained to Mr. Jones, Josie,"
said the judge, "that the affairs of the
plant are entirely in your hands. You
can give him a pretty good idea of
how things stand v ' hout the books
and figures in front of you, can't you?"
To Broadway's grief he sat down com
"Well, hardly, judge," said Josie,
smiling at him in a way which pained
Broadway, for it seemed certain to
cement the jurist's firm intention of re
maining with them for the balance of
the evening. It seemed to him that
this was inconsiderate.
"The old gentleman told me," the
jndge explained, "that the works
showed a profit of about forty thou
sand dollars last year. Is that right?"
"Oh, it was more than that."
This distracted Jackson Jones' atten
tion even from the color of her -eyes.
More than forty thousand dollars!
"It was!" he said, with an elongating
gesture of the neck and a side head
twist which were habitual with him in
moments of delighted surprise.
He drew his chair a little nearer
even than it had been. Eyes were all
right enough; but, after all, forty thou
sand dollars! And possibly the eyes
thrown in! Had he been lucky to es
cape the bonds of wedlock with the
ancient widow? Verily he had!

rightly," said the pretty business wom

willing to accept her judgment upon

rassed for a moment when he found
himself alone with thi3 old friend of
his youth, this simple little country
girl. But he knew it wouldn't do; he
was certain that it was absurd. To
kill time he referred back to what the
judge had said about the gum.
"Can you beat that?" ho inquired.
"The best chewing gum in the world!"
She looked at him with the serious
light of real reproof in her incompar
able eyes. "I don't think there's any
doubt about it, Mr. Jones. The trust
people realize it If they don't, they
certainly wouldn't be willing to pay
a million dollars for it."
"They're willing to pay more than
that for it," he told her, feeling for
the first time a real interest in the
conversation. Before that he had been
absorbed only by the conversationalist.

She laughed at his commercial igno

must make might possibly disturb the

"Our cash balance?"
She thought deeply for a moment.
Then she looked up with a smile of
triumph. "Over eighteen thousand
dollars, I should say."

TO 11 PATCH POCKET
Madras or Percale Is Suitable
to Develop in This
Sin Boy's Shirt, 6 to 12 years.
Boys always stand in need of new
blouses. This one is cut on the latest
lines. The yoke across the back allows
fullness that is both becoming and com
fortable. The sleeves are without fullness
at the shoulders and there is a high
turned-over collar that is separate and
adjusted over a neck-band and attached
by means of studs. Madras and percale
are the preferred materials for blouses of
the kind but, for really cold weather, boys
like them made of light weight French
flannel. There is a patch pocket on the
left front, for no masculine garment is
complete without such a convenience. At
the lower edge, there is a hem in which
elastic can b«* inserted to adjust the size.
For the 10 year size, the blouse will
require 2% yds- of material 27, 2 yds. 36,
yds. 44 in. wide.
The pattern of the blouse 8111 is cut
in sizes from 6to 12 years. It will be
mailed to any address by the Fashion
Department of (his paper, on receipt of
Bowman's soli Maj- Man ton JPaU«ni3.
