Chapter XLVI
Before Virginia's .dinner at the
Roehambeau was over I issued invi
tations to our postponed family din
And all during the day of my
party while I was deep in nervous
yet hopeful preparations for it, I
remembered Jim's delight because I
leaned aqyoss the table in the little
card room issuing a laughing man
date to Betty and Terry:
"You two are included because
you're our closest friends —Jim's
'war family.' So you'll break all en
gagements and come, won't you?"
They accepted and Virginia cried
with real enthusiasm:
"How jolly of you. Anne, and how
equally jolly ot you two to cancel
your appointments lor us."
The first thing I had done to win
Virginia's complete approval was to
Invite Betty'Brice to dinner.
That came to me next day with
such force it almost caused me to
drop the fish-ring I was examining
with terror lest for the first time in
Thousands Have Discovered
I Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets
I areaHarmlessSubstitute
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets—the sub
stitute for calomel—are a mild but sure
laxative, and their effect on the liver is
almost instantaneous. They are the re
sult of Dr. Edwards's determination not
to treat liver and bowel complaints with
calomel. His efforts to banish it brought
out these little olive-colored tablets.
The pleasant little tablets do the good
that calomel does, but have no bad after
effects. They don't injure the teeth like
strong liquids or calomel. They take
hold of the troublear.d quickly correct it.
Why cure the liver at the expense of the
teeth? Calomel sometimes plays havoc
withthegums. Sodo strong liquids. It
is best not to take calomel, but to let Dr.
Edwards' Olive Tablets take its place.
Most headaches, "dullness" and that
lazy feeling come from constipation and
a disordered liver. Take Dr. Edwards'
Olive Tablets when you feel "loggy' and
"heavy." Note how they "clear"clouded
brain and howthey"perk up" the spirits, j

He insisted on teaching me the

and decided that she wanted a
chatty evening. She sent Phoebe
into the bedroom for her bag, settled
her score and then strolled over to
the couch and sat down in the mid
dle of it with a complete air of in
tending to remain there.
From the moment of her first
move to end the poker game Jim
surprised me.
"Virginia, don't be a spoil-sport,"
he protested irritably.
This to his beloved Virginia—and
he followed it by stubbornly insisting
that Betty and Terry continue the
game. But Betty wooed Terry away
with a smile and said she also felt
"All right, then, let the girls gos
sip—but shoot a few dice with me,
Terry." he urged.
Betty and Terry exchanged a
quick glance—and then the English
man said he'd rather talk and get
"How about you, Neal?" asked
Jim, moistening his lips nervously
as he produced a little black cylin
der from his cardbox
"I'm with you," said Neal. Routed
from Phoebe's side, he gladly seized
the chance of getting into Jim's good
"I'll match you for the first
Jim tossed a penny on the table,
covered it with his hand and watched
Neal intently. Neal brought a coin
from his pocket, shook it between
clasped palms and lifted his right
hand to show the Indian head—
while Jim's coin lay with the date up.
Good boy, Neal. You win." Jim's
voice was hard, yet feverish.
Neal shook the dice box. Out
came a pair of three,
i Jim was breathing heavily as he
crouched over the table with his
eyes a-glitter.
Again Neal tossed the little cubes
out on the table —and now a six ,
rolled into sight, followed by a four.
I felt Jim stiffen —and relax. The
last toss was a five and a four. Jim
raked in the two quarters that lay
before him and suggested doubling
the stakes.
A moment later he was laughing
nervously as a one and then a six
rolled out at his first light flirt of
the dice box.
| "Better luck next time, kid!" he
exclaimed, but his hands trembled
as he handed the box back to Neal.
Again Neal lost. Jim clutched the
coins eagerly and laughed—a dry,
reckless laugh. As he sat there,
with his hair tossed into a tumbled
mass and his eyes fairly burning on
Neal and the dice and the Jumbled
pile of bills and coin in front qf him,
I became aware of the strange si
lence in the room. The only thing
that broke it was Jim's staccato
laughter and the rattle of the dice.
Suddenly Virginia rose:
"Jimmie. dear, will you take me
home? I've a lot of work to do at
the apartment to-morrow —and I
want to ask you about some of it.
We'll walk and get a bit of air. Mrs.
Brice and the Captain will drive
Phoebe over, I'm sure."
No one protested at her strange
Jim loti'ked up—almost dazed.
"Then he got to his feet and though
he staggered against the table for
a moment, still the wonted sweet
smile struggled back to his face as
he assured Virginia that he'd really
like advising her.
He looked down at the .pile of
money almost as if weighing it, then
he reached out a hand* his fingers
closed to a fist, but instead of open
ing it to seize the money he pushed
it toward Neal
"Take it, Neal —It's yours," he
And though there were gracious
good-bys after that, and reminders
of the Motor Cup races for which
Captain Terry has invited us next
day, my evening seemed to end with
the moment Jim pushed the money
he had won from him back to Neal.
My good-nights were automatic.
Still automatically I crossed the
window and strained my eyes into
the darkness for a glimpse of Jim.
What was she saying to him —this
sister he loved? Did the dice game
that had terrified me mean anything
to her? Would a worry shared
bring us close or make her shut me
out behinds walls of reserve?
And while I stood pondering and
wondering, I felt a strong young arm
fling itself across my shoulders. Neal
—my brother Neal.
Virginia had shut him off from
Phoebe, yet he said nothing of his
own hurt, and merely stood with
his arm about me offering his silent
sympathy. 'How good it was to feel
that whatever came, I had Neal.
But as I turned to smile at my
brother the pile of coins winked up
at me maliciously from the corner of
the table where Jim had played his

William while the war was in prog

"Before the leaves fall from the
trees we shall be back again in the
dear fatherland. Exterminate first
the treacherous English and walk
over General French's contemptible
little army. The warlike spirit still
lives in the German people—that
powerful spirit which attacks the
enemy wherever it finds him regard

"You, my troops, are my guaran

goodness will guide the German peo

without honor I cannot sheathe

Declares the Lowering of
Wartime Wages Essential
\>v York, Nov. 14.—Abolition of
the national eight-hour day and a
lowering of wartime scales are es
sential If American mines and factor-'
les are to continue to compete In the
world of trade, according to William
H. Barr, of Buffalo, president of the
National Founders' Association, who
addressed the annual convention of
the organisation here yesterday.
Declaring the liquidation of labor
to be "the first and greatest problem
which will demand the attention of
our Industry," Mr. Barr counseled
the meating of this problem "without
resentment or bitterness."
The old cynical saying,' '"When
Poverty comes in at the door Love
flies out of the window," is not al
ways true.
As a matter of fact. Love has oft
en been strengthened and saved,
sometimes even been born out of the
pity and sympathy and the drawing
closer together due to financial re
What is true is that Love is very
apt to fly before the advent of Stingi
ness and Unfairness.'*
The success 6f marriage is almost
always an economic problem. With
that phase of it satisfactorily settled,
the other phase can generally be
trusted to take care of themselves.
The man who doles out the house
keeping allowance as if he were giv
ing alms; the woman who lets the
bread-bill slide to spend the money
on some bit of extravagance; the
man who grouches about expense at

All the free-verse and free-love
pictures and theoretical piffle of ev
ery sort cannot change the faat that
marriage is a business enterprise and
as with every other business enter
prise, it's success is almost entirely
a matter o'f straight book-keeping.
.As an exhibit along this line, I
