    " When a Girl Marries"
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problems of a Girl Wife
Bright and early qn the day after
Veal started for training camp,
Terry came to call for Jim.
"I'm going to drive you to work
like a captain of industry, mate,"
said he. Then to clinch the lie of
our friendly conspiracy against my
husband, he added: "That's the
least a chap can do, Jim—after the
way you stood by and took on this
Job as a favor to me—and to re
lease a man for the war."
When a sturdy, upright man like
Perry Winston decides to lie for
a friend, I suppose he fairly has to
make a good job of it. But I won

and exact payment from Terry and
After Terry and Jim had left I
started off on the day's usual round
of housework. But one minute I
was washing dishes, the next I had
plunged into dusting and a moment
after that I was engaged in making
beds. Restless! I Just couldn't stick
to any one thing. That little apart
ment of mine seemed as large as an
empty barn and twice as cold and
1 fairly ached with missing Neal.
He was all that had been left to
me of my old life. And now, with
him going, I felt that a milestone
had been passed in my new life.
Jim is booked for a splendid
salary, and there's the monthly
"kit" from Haldanes. Never in my
life have I had so much money.
And with the earning of this
amount Jim is back on the threshold
of his old life, the lie that's utterly
unknown to me. With all my
heart and soul I'll try to follow
him there. But shall 1 succeed?
At noon I woke to the fact that
neither Phoebe nor Virginia had
phoned me, and with pride in my
self for making the advances, I
called first the Rochambeau, then
Virginia's apartment. But the girls
weren't to be found. My loneliness
increased. I made a hasty lunch
of crackers and milk—took it in
the kitchenette and standing. That
carried ne back to my boarding
house days.
Toward the close of the long,
lonely afternoon the doorbell rang.
Even the laundryman would have
been a welcome break in my day.
but when 1 got to the door there
stood Tom Mason.
"Hullo, Lady Tenant! At last I
get a real chance, to visit you," he
announced. "Evvy just dropped me
here with a message—she's going
out to the River road to get Jim.
He motored up there with a chap
named Nerreys. Their car broke

Tom Mason chuckled.

Then, out of a box, he drew the
blue robe, and crossing the room,
he tossed it into the carven chest
and came back to seize my hands
in his.
"Mr. Mason," I began sternly, and
with real distaste, "this is silly. It
must stop."
"Don't be cruel to me, dear," he
broke in. "It only makes we
want —" . .
And hard on those ugly words I
didn't wish to hear, there came an
insistent peal of the doorbell. 1
crossed the room, half in relief and
half in annoyance becuase I couldn't
have this thing out once and for all.
I jerked open the door.
There stood Father Andrew.
"Well —well, my little girl! My
Babbsie Anne!" he cried in his nice,
rumbling, jovial voice, enveloping
me in a great hug that almost
crushed me between his fine broad
chest and his heavy Gladstone bag.
I clung to him, kissing his bristly
mustache and his smooth apple
J cheeks and running my hands over
his dear, familiar Melton coat.
"I calculate I surprised you a
mite." chuckled Father Andrew.
"And tor all you've got such a fine
flat, it appears to me that my little
lnss is glad to see her old father
from the country."
"Oh. dear, darling. Father An
drew, you'll never guess how glad!"
I whispered over and over. Then I
remembered my unbidden guest and
turned to present him.
"This is Jolly," said Tom Mason,
approaching with cordial hands
outstretched. "I'm delighted to be
the first to offer you the keys of the
city. And whenever Anne is busy
you must turn to me to show you
around the town."
Father Andrew examined him
with the tolerant amusement a good
natured St. Bernard might give to a
little Pekinese that had wandered
into its kennel, and then he put
Tom Mason neatly into his place.
"Well, now, that's good of you.
But I don't calculate my little girl's
going to be much busier than a man
with his day's work to do."
"Which reminds me that there's
half a day's work waiting for me
now," said Tom. And took his de
"He's my landlord," I explained
"Appeared to think he was my
official guide," chuckled Father
Andrew. Then his face grew stern.
"Where's Neal?" he demanded.

One afternoon several days after
Mildred had told her sister of Tom
Chandler's return to Falrlands, Hon
ora Brent came home from the office
sooner than was her custom.
It had been one of those unseason
ably warm days that come sometimes
in early spring. Even her employer
had been affected by the sudden
change in the weather and had left
his office at 4 o'clock/advising his sec
retary to do likewise.
"Don't stay after you have finished
those letters. Miss Brent," he had sug
gested kindly.
When Honora reached her own
house and opened the front door, Mrs.
Higgins hurried downstairs to speak
to her.

low envelope in a tremulous hand.
"Oh, my dear," she exclaimed, "I

for me."
"lVu mustgo at once," Honora de
clared promptly.
"I suppose so," the older woman
hesitated. "But it's Katie's afternoon

to do. I can't leave you poor chil
"Poor children!", scoffed the girl.
"What nonsense! We are able to
keep ourselves from starving or freez

dinner, if we can't get that for our
selves, we deserve to go hungry. You
must start at once, Mrs. Higgins. If
Mildred and I are able to earn our
own living, we should be equal to
keeping house for a while. Have you
packed your bags?"
"No," faltered the matron. "I did
not know whether—"
Honors Helps Her
"Well. I know!" Honora cut her
short. "Come upstairs now and I will
help you. First let me telephone for
a taxi. You can catch the 5.22 train
if we hurry."
Under the older woman's agitated
directions the girl packed a suitcase,
helped her adjust her bonnet and don
her co't, then saw her, still murmur
ing regrets, into the cab.
"Stay away Just as long as you
wish to." Honora advised. "Drop us
a line when you can and tell us how

The cab rolled away and Honora re
turned to the porch. Here she sank
Into a chair and smiled affectionately
at the memory of the bustle and flurry
that had pervaded the house for the
past half-hour.
Then her thoughts wandered to
more personal matters, and she r.nt
still, watching the late sunlight die'
away from the budding treetops across
the street. A man's voice roused her
from her self-absorption.
"A penny for your thoughts!"

"I spoke three times," he accused,
"but you were so wrapped up in your
own reflections that you never heard
me at all. I was about to go away
with my hurt feelings, believing that
you had decided to break oft all asso

"Won't you sit down?" she asked.
"Thanks!" He leaned back in R

good to be resting," he added. "I've
been working hard all day and have
not had time to loaf since I got up
this morning—though probably you
won't believe that."
They chatted for a few minutes be

heart she had hoped he might omit.

President of the Parents Association,
How shall T teach my daughter
to say her little prayer?
It Is fine to see children show re
spect to their elders. And it is
finer to have them show reverence
to God.
Great additional power can be
tapped through a prayer by those
who hate learned how to pray. The
child who early has been taught to
pray in a proper way has a distinct
advantage over one who has not
been so taught. There is dally
striving at self-important for the
good of others in the case of the
child properly taught which is un
known to the child of unchristian or
neglectful parents. The resullng
difference in character is often re
So whatever you do, do not ne
glect the spiritual development of
your child.
Some parents have the highest
ideals to rtheir children but do not
know the proper way of including
the child to act in accprdance with
those ideals. .
For example, one mother writes
me: .
"I have always tried 'to teach my
little daughter'to say her prayer at
night before going to bed. Even
before she could talk, I always said

Since she has learned to talk, I make

to her to make her want to say her

To get your daughter to take more
interest In her little prayer, appear
to be more enthusiastic about It
yourself. Pray about new tnd in
teresting things. For example, say,
"Dear Jesus, when we take some
little cookies over to Mary Jane's
to-morrow, help us to make her
feel cheerful and happy."
Put some suman' Interest into it.
Talk about her little anticipated
pleasures, about her little trials and
encourage her to talk to God In a
natural way about her experiences
during the day and those to take
place on the morrow.
Abstract ideas are not interesting
to children. Talk about specific
things. Suggest certain definite
things for your daughter to ask
Jesus for, Jußt before she starts to

she puts the request, show decided

In the case of a young child it is
better to encourtage him to em
phasize his thankfulness in his pray
er rather than his various wishes
which are so often purely selfishness.
For example, the prayer of a small
child will start out thus: 'Dear
Jesus, I am thankful for the good
things to eat, for the sunshine and
the birdies." The child also should
be taught to say, 'Take good care of
father and mother and— and —"
(letting the child fill in the blanks).
Children should not get the idea
