Their Married Life
By MABEL HERBERT URNER
"Here's one for you." Warren
tossed a letter across the breakfast
"Oh, it's from Louise!" joyfully.
Helen started to run a fork under
the flap. It was the first letter she
had received from Louise since her
marriage. For a moment she held it
unopened, trying to conjecture what
it might contain. In one way its
thickness was alarming. If, after all,
Louise should not be happy. If Bob—
"Well, what's she got to say?" as
Warren tore open another envelope.
"I haven't opened it yet, I"
But already JVarren was absorbed
in his letter.
Almost retaotantly Helen ran the
fork through the thick white envel
ope. There were six pages in Louise's
fine, regular hand.
"I cannot realize that wo have l»een
married over two weeks—sixteen
days! And we're still at the Walton.
We're so comfortable here that we've
stayed on from day to day. Neither
of us feels in the mood for traveling.
There's enough that is new and won
derful in just being together.
"From New York to Philadelphia
isn't much of a wedding trip, but
we're together—that's all that mat
ters. Helen, I'm so happy that it
frightens me! Can it last? Oh, I
can't bear to think that there will
be any "letting down"—and yet I
suppose there must be!
"Just now it seems Impossible that
the wonder of it should ever wear
off—that we should ever grow com
monplace and humdrum, as do most
married people. I can't conceive of
the time when I will not be thrilled
by his slightest touch. O, I want
to hold on to these hours! I want
to be always just his bride! But
there—l didn't intend to inflict you
with an effusive emotional letter.
"I want to tell you about our i
rooms here. We have the bridal
suite, and It must be fearfully ex
pensive, but Bob will not hear of
our making any change. He had
wired ahead and had the rooms
filled with flowers the day we ar
rived. It was foolish, of course, for
it stamped us as bride and groom.
It was almost as though he WANTED
everyone to know!
"The first evening he ordered a
special dinner served in our rooms.
The table was laid by one of the
long French windows in our draw
ing room, where we could look out
over the city. I felt that I was liv
ing in a play. The room, with its
Louis XV. furniture and silk shaded
candelebra, seemed like a stage set
ting. It was too beautiful to be
"I wore the white lace gown I got
so hurriedly at Ardmans. You re
member you thought two hundred
and fifty too much for it. Oh, my
dear, it wasn't! Every woman wants
pretty things on her bridal trip, and
as I had time to get so few, I'm
glad I got them good.
"You see, I'm trying to write of the
rooms and my clothes—rather than
of Bob and of how madly I love
him! It's all so wonderful, dear; so
much more wonderful than I ever
thought it would be! He is so dell»
cately considerate and gentle! I'm
beginning to realize all the fineness
of his nature, that he had almost
concealed by his gruff curtness. In

there's something I want to ask you
—something I couldn't ask anyone
"You knout I first attracted Bob by
my aloofness, by making him feel
that he was never quite sure of me.
At times I used that aloofness as a
deliberate lure. I think every woman
has done this; it's part of the game.
A feigned coldness to the man she
loves is a woman's most effectlv» en
"But now that I'm his wife, to what
degree must I still keep up this pre

now. Can I let him see all the emo

I keep on pretending that I am just
a little cold and reticent? Must I
keep up the subterfuge of being pur

days, when 1 have let myself go—
just a little. I may have only imag

looked surprised. There might have
been even a suggestion of withdrawal
on his part. It was only momentary,
of course, and so slight that I may
have been wrong, yet it checked me
"I am expressing this very badlv,
but it is aU very subtle. Yet I feel
sure you'll understand what I have
written—and much that I haven't.
Write me freely and tell me some
thing of what you have learned in
these four years of your married
"Oh, I want to keep Bob always
my lover—as he is now. And if to
do this mea-ns that I must show my
love always a little less than he shows
his, that I must feign a constant
eiusiveness—it will be hard, cruelly
hard! Yet I will try!
"Well, what's she got to say? Let's
hear it," demanded Warren, who had
now finished his mail.
"Oh, I can't read you this."
"Why can't you?"
Tin? Reason Why
"Why, dear, it's—it's a very per
sonal letter. I'm sure Louise wouldn't
want me to. But they're very happy
—and still at the Walton. They're
so comfortable there, they're not go

"Fine! But let's hear the letter."
"Dear, I tell you I can't! It
wouldn't be fair to Louise."
"The sentimental effusion of a
bride, eh? Lot of maudlin rot! I'll
bet It fairly oozes with gush! All
right, you needn't read it. Guess we
can survive without hearing it, eh

regarding him with grave interest.
"Louise couldn't gush If she wanted
to," retorted Helen indignantly.
"And she's not sentimental in the way
"Huh, all women are alike. She'll
probably have Bob surfeited before
they've been married six months."
Helen caught her breath. He was
answering t'ie very question Louise
"Dear, don't you think a man
should WANT his wife to be affec
tionate? If she loves him why
shouldn't she show it?"
"Well, no man wants to be eter
nally slobbered over," brutally, as he
rose from the table. "Wonder if I'll
need an overcoat? If the tailor comes
—give him that thin suit to press."
When he had gone, Helen went back
to the breakfast table and again
read Louise's letter. All morning she
pondered over it. "Oh, I want to keep
Bob always my lover"—that phrase
haunted her. Could any woman keep
her husband a lover always? Certainly
she had not. Then how could she ad-)
When finally she sat down to
write her, she had the feeling that
anything she might say would be only
words, that in this she was patheti
cally unqualified to offer advice.
I think the lives of most v/omen are
made up of pretenses and subterfuges
to hold the love of some one'man—
that's what we're all striving for. But
not always in the same way.
"Assumed coldness and eluslvenoss
may be the ruse of one woman, while
another impassioned ardor may be
"I know Bob is much like Warren
—but you and I are so different.
I haven't your independence nor per
haps your pride. I've never been able
to assume aloofness with Warren.
I I've always been demonstrative and
emotional. I can't help it—l know it
palls on him and I hate myself for
|my weakness. Often he withdraws
from my caresses, they irritate and
annoy him, and yet his very with
drawal makes me lavish them on him
all the more.
"Yes; I suppose all men do like to
'pursue.' It is the unattainable, the
thing they are not always sure of, that
appeals to them most. And if you
have the courage to school yourself
to a little coldness and reserve, if you
| can hold Bob always in the attitude of
the pursuer—it may keep him more
"That Is what every women wants
—to keep her husband a lover always.
And yet, how dismally .most of us
fail! I don't believe any woman ever
had all the love she wanted, and she
always feels that she might have had
more if she had been 'different.'
"Yet none of us can play a part
for very long. Wo may keep up a
pretense for awhile, but we always
end by being—just ourselves.

Squeezing and pinching out black

safe and sure way and one that never
