" When a Girl Marries"
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problems of a Girl Wife
Tlmmldly, feeling as if it didn't
belong there at all, I entered our
bedroom. No Jim! For a moment I
was frightened—nnd then the sound
of his limping steps came to me from
the livingroom. He had gone out
through the kitchenette—to avoid me
perhaps— as I came in by the other
I hurried out, and just as I got
into the livingroom, there stood Jim,
with his hand on the knob of the
door. He wore hat nnd coat and was
leaning on a heavy stick. Where
could he be going alone—except to
Flying across the room, I laid my
hand timmidly on his coat sleeve.
"Jim," I said huskily, in a voice
that almost refused to come. "Jim,
will you give me a minute—please?"
"What is it?" he demanded with
"Jim, if you ever loved me, come
hack and sit down—so I can talk
to you. And don't—look at me as if
I were a—stranger."
Wearily Jim closed the door and
crossed to a stiff, high-backed chair.
He laid hat and stick across the
table and sat austerely waiting for
me to begin. I came and stood in
front of Jim, leaning against the
refectory table for support, looking
at him searchingly as I trembled
for words.
"Jim, don't judge me until I've
told you everything. Last night you
loved me completely. To-day"
"Please, Annie—no heroics." Jim
interrupted, wearily. "I've had about
all I can stand. To-morrow I start
a new Job. I owe it to Terry and
Norreys to be fit, and all this agoniz
ing makes me realize that I've been
all shot to pieces. I'm sorry I'm in
such shape—but there it is."
"I'll be brief," I gasped. "Well,
it's this way—after you left Vir
ginia, Neal and Phoebe didn't get
their evening together—at least, not
alone. Virginia persuaded Sheldon
Blake to motor all four of them out
in the country for dinner."
Jim rose. i

"So It's to complain of Virginia
that you're keeping me. Really.
Anne—you seem to be—insane on
the subject."
"I'll swallow the hurt of that, Jim.
I had to tell you. You sep, Neal
Neal leaves for camp at -two-thirty.
He's going a thousand miles away.
Then overseas, I suppose. He may
—never—see Phoebe again. I know
you're fond of him—mayn't he have
his good-by?"
"Phoebe's only a baby," muttered
Jim. as if thinking aloud.
"She's a woman now. That's what
war does to girls. If she's resent
ful, if she feels that we didn't give
her a chance, that we didn't under
stand her feelings, Phoebe may im
agine she's a martyr. And —thwarted
love isn't healthy. Oh, don't you
see that lit might make her bitter—
hate all of us —harbor it against Vir
ginia? It's better to take it for
granted—just boy and girl love—
sweet, approved of—not Romeo and
Juliet stuff.
Unexpectedly Jim flung back his
head and laughed.
"You funny little solemn thing!
So that's why you had to get rid of
Virginia? Well, for Neal's sake —
and Phoebe's—l'll forgive you, and
you forgive me, too, dear. But.
Anne, won't you be a little more—
considerate of Virginia?"
Then in dawning hope that every
thing might be coming right after
all, I rushed to the phone and called
Virginia. Phoebe answered, and
after a brief word of explanation I
asked her to call Virginia. When
Virginia's cold, surprised voice greet
ed me. I nerved myself for what I
must say.
"Virginia—l've never done a thing
to make you like me. But now I
want you to do something for me as
if—as if you were very fond of me.
Will you?" I pleaded.
"What can I do for you?" Vir
ginia coldly questioned.
"Just this. Neal leaves for camp
in a few hours. He's my brother —
I adore him the way you do Jim.
He may never come back, and he

i with a queer little husky note in it.
;, "After all, Anne, young love—and

r Her kindness startled me. For a
t minute I glimpsed something be
i hind the curtain of her own life,
i I couldn't have anything but the
1 truth between us at that moment.
"Thank you, Virginia. I thought
[ all of us would get out of the way
a little while—even I, though that
r hurts me. So I asked Betty to phone
[ you will you forgive me for

I heard Jim ejaculate:
"Well, of all the tactless things!"
Then a strange sound came over
the wire. Virgina's laughter—clear
i and silvery—full of honest amuse
■ ment
"So Betty's conspiring against the
'cruel stepmother' also—how de
licious! I'll pay that scamp for her
j scheming and conniving. Tell the
' boy I wish him luck, Anne—aaid
if he's feeling kindly toward me, I'll
see him when he comes back"—
before he goes overseas. Good-by,
you amusing person!"
Smiling with delight I left the
phone. Virginia and I had shared
a laugh. She had patronizingly
called me an "amusing person,"
while she had cosily and chummlly
exclaimed that Betty was a "scamp."
But not even those contrasting at
titudes bothered me—then.
To Discuss Ash Problem
at Boyd Memorial
Men of Pine Street Presbyterian
Church and Sunday school will meet
to-night In the Boyd Memorial build
ing for an open discussion of the ash
and garbage collection system in
Harrisburg. The meeting has been
called in an effort to help solve the
"problem that confronts the city, as
many of the men of the church have
declared that the system used here
is far from satisfactory. Municipal
collections will be discussed also.
Dr. J. M. J. Raunick, city health
officer, and Harry F. Sheesley, chief
inspector of the Bureau of Ash and
Garbage Inspection, will be present
to present hteir views on the situa
tion. After they speak a general dis
cussion will be opened, to be follow
i ed by a social hours.

Every one of us needs rest and
relaxation. Children need to sleep
a greater number of hours than
■ But in very many homes, it is a
real problem to get the children will
ingly to take their afternoon naps.
Play to them seems more attractive.
Trouble at nap time often is caused
in the first by parents leaving the
matter largely up to the children.
Let us take a case. A mother
"My two-year-old daughter has
been cutting her teeth and uncon
sciously I humored her about going
to sleep, holding her and singing to
her a while before putting her to
bed. The time of holding her grad
ually lengthened until I decided I
would have to undo the newly formed
habit. I tried kindness sterness and

bind out what song eooths your

favorite songs. Notice carefully as
you sing to her which seems best to
quiet her. Having discovered this,

and just as you lay her down, pass
your hand five or six times along her
spine with soothing strokes. Then

Advice to the Lovelorn
I have known a girl for the past

and stay down after being put to
Gradually lessen the length of time
you remain In bed with her. When
you first leave her before she sleeps,
keep on singing but gradually move
to another part of the room until
she Is again content to be left alone
immediately upon being put to bed.
In starting the new habit, it might
bo well to set the .time for her nap
an hour later in the day and ar
range for her to be somewhat more
in tho mood of sleeping. Bo sure that
she is not overfed. Have her exer
cise a half hour before the schedule
time for sleep, so that she will be a
little tired and more ready for rest.
There should be no excitement of
any kind just before the sleep period.
During the sleep period, the room
must be absolutely quiet and at least
partly dark. Seo that there is plenty
of fresh uir in the room before bed
time, so that the room will be cool
and comfortable for sleep.
Jf your child rebels against taking
her nap, arrange to play with her
out doors a few minutes. Keep lodg
ing tho suggestion in a happy manner
that she can play with you a little
while with dolly and then play some
more with you.
Laugh a great deal while playing
with her; approve her on how fast
she can run and then say. "All right,
now we will take two more runs and
then we shall go and take a little
rest." "After taking one more run,
say, "All right we have one more yet
Here we go. That's fine! All right,
now we will take a rest and after
we rest we will play some more.
Aim to handle the talk suggestion
above In such a way that she will
not object at all, but if she should
say she doesn't want to take her nap,
say, "Oh yes, we must take our nap.
And after you take a little nap,
would you like for me to play with
you again?"
Repeat this method for a few days
and she will have formed a habit of
going without opposition.

i garded my affection, and if I had any
chance to gain her love. She evaded
the question.
When I am out with her she always
acts courteously, but when I seek to
make a future appointment she
changes tho subject. That is my dif
ficulty, and what I tyant to know Is
whether you would advise me to make
any more attempts at seeing her.
I do not wish to be guilty of advis
ing a lover to despair. The outlook
is not promising, but it may be that
the young woman has a capricious
temperament and requires a determin
ed wooing. Since It gives you pleas
ure to be with her, why not keep on
until you are definitely convinced, one
way or the other?
We are a group of girls about 17.
A short time ago a boy friend of ours
was "dared" to refrain from talking
to a certain group of us for one
month and talk to other girls instead,
lie took the "dare." The month Is al
most over, and opinion varies among
tho girls who have been neglected.
Some claim that sincere friendship
ought to be resumed, while others,
feeling humiliated, believe that it Is
now our place to rotaiiato and treat
him as we have been treated. We
would like to have your opinion.
G. 1*
It Is certainly extremely foolish to
trlflo wltii friendship In tills wny, and
your boy friend shows weakness In
allowing himself to bo so lnlluenced
by girls whose deslro Is perhaps to
make trouble. The boy's rudeness is
unpardonable, but ho may not reallzo
this, Why doesn't one of you explain
to him what Is It is that he him done
and let him know that you all expect
a sincere apology before resuming
friendly relations?

Please tell me what I should do?
It is a pleasure to hear from a girl
who has such.a loyal, sturdy spirt. I
hope your relatives are not serious in
ridiculing your sailor lover because he
is poor, hut, in any case. I think thev
will grow tired of doing so in time, ifl
they find you are not influenced by it.
The ability to entertain a girl ex-3
pensively counts for very little ' irai
comparison with other qualities in al
man, and I am glad you understand!
