" When a Girl Marries"
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problems of a Girl Wife
"Salt water oil," replied Jim com
placently, "is the pet name of a
crowd of fellows down in the street
grave to an oil stock they wanted to
sell short. I'm buying it on very
good margin."
"Buying—when the men down in
the street are selling?" I asked a oit
If Jim's deal went wrong, we faced
a double loss—the collapse of our
chance at wealth, and the hideous
grind to pay back the money he had
borrowed. I felt panic-stricken at
the very thought. And Jim's laugh—
the reckless over-sure laugh of the
bom gambler—did not reassure me
at all. For it opened the door to a
long vista. I found myself staring
down a road such as I had known in
my youth—the road my mother had
traveled as the wife of a gamblor—
rose-colored plush hotel suites, al
ternating with dingy drab, fourth
door back boarding house rooms.
"Are you listening?" Jim demanded.
"Of course, dear, I'm listening.
You Just said that the men on the
Ftreet were selling," I replied, tink
ering cosily with Jim's necktie.
"I said that about half an hour

Instead, he stared at me with hostile
eyes and ejaculated:

Jim ceased pacing up and down
the floor and sank into a chair in
the old, familiar position, with his
knees crossed and his Angers en
circling his lame ankle.
"It's like this," he began. "The
Colonara Company starts boosting
Colonara oil a few months ago, when
they advertise a gusher, an oil well
that runs 60,000 barrels a month. Can
you imagine how their stock climbs?"
"Yes, I can." I replied, delighted
at the simplicity thus far of my
study of "high finance."
"All right. Colanara goes from
25 to 80 in about a week. Then a
crowd of fellows 'who were caught
short try to force the selling—so
they can buy low enough to cover
their losses. And they get hold of
a trade Journal and write a story of
how the Colonara gusher is spout
ing 50,000 barrels a month—but 60,-
000 barrels of salt water —not oil,
and Colonara slumps to about 12.
Now do you begin to see?"
"But Jim that wasn't honest

"The ethics of the 'Salt Water

"Buying! Buying stock that other

1 cried.
"For a woman who has Just finished
declaring she can't understand the
stock game, you show rather positive
opinions." declared Jim, shaking his
head impatiently. Then he went on.
"Don't b e frightened. I'm not buy

people are fighting. They invited a
well known engineer to come down
with a commission and look over

Advice to the Lovelorn
Some time ago I met a young man
a few years older than myself. When
we first met he came to see me about
thee times a week. Then he told me
he had accepted a position out of
town and would only come into the
city every two weeks.
Now, Miss Fairfax, I have been
going with this young man for six
months. The trouble is that I am
too much in love. At first he would
tell me he was going to remain a
bachelor. Then I would tease him
in a friendly way. He is very proud
of me. I know, and often speaks of
my being friends with his sisters, who
are married, but, of course, I will not
meet them until I am engaged, and I
do not know if I ever will be.
I have many other boy friends, but
cannot fret myself to become inter
ested in them or to go out with them.
Please don't think this is a trifling
matter, as I am so changed and sad
over it. Can't you give me an idea of
what I can say to him so as to bring
him to terms?.
T am afraid there is Inevitably a
good deal of suffering when one
friend falls in love first and has to
wait for the other to catch up. The
worst of it is that there isn't any
way of accelerating the falling-in
love process. And I am sure you
will be happier in the end if you
allow the young man's feeling for
you to develop naturally and spon
taneously. instead of trying to force
it. It does take a good deal of
patience and self-control, but I am
sure you have these qualities.
If. when you meet a certain person
of the opposite sex, you feel a strong
attraction, would you call that^ove?
It's an evidence of a certain kind of
attraction. But I wouldn't call it love
until after closer acquaintance.

Stop Itching Eczema Jj
Never mind how often you have tried
and failed, you can stop burning, itching
eczema quickly by applying a little zemo
furnished by any druggist for 35c. Extra
large bottle, $l.OO. Healing begins the
moment zemo is applied. In a short
time usually every trace of eczema,
tetter, pimples, rash, blackheads and
similar skin diseases will be removed.
For clearing the skin and making it
vigorously healthy, always use zemo, the
penetrating, antiseptic liquid. It is not a
greasy salve and it does not stain. When
others fail it is the one dependable
treatment for skin troubles of All kinds.
The E. W. Roae Co.. Cleveland. Q. -
As Tom Chandler started down the
path leading- from the Brents' house
he came face to face with Arthur
Arthur's day had been full of anx
ieties. Not only had his father seem
ed more ill than usual, but business
affairs were in a discouraging tangle.
So absorbed was the lover in his mus
ings'that he almost collided with Tom
before he saw him.
That Tom Chandler should be
emerging from Mildred's home took
Arthur so much by surprise that he
blurted out his astonishment.
"Why—what are you doing here?"
he exclaimed.
Chandler's recent conversation had
left his nerves tingling. For some
weeks he had enjoyed amusing him
self with Mildred, and her attitude
toward him now awakened his resent
"I have been calling on Mildred," he
retorted coolly. "And, by the way,
allow me at present my congratu
"Congratulations!" Arthur repeated
the word involuntarily.
"Yes, on your engagement." Tom
rejoined. "You betrothed has hon
ored me by taking me into her con
fidence to the extent of announcing
the happy event to ine. I have, nat
urally, congratulated her, too. But I
must not detain you; I know she is
expecting you. Good-night."
"Good-night!" Arthur returned me
He stood still for a full minute af
ter Chandler had left him, then went
up the steps, his mind in a whirl.
"Hallo!" Mildred's light voice greet
ed him as he entered the library.
"Why—what's the matter?"
Arthur In Trouble
He kissed her before replying, but
he did it with the manner of a man
who has weightier matters than love
making on his mind.
"What's the matter?" the girl re
"I am a bit puzzled," he said hesi
tatingly "Of course, Mtlly," with an
effort to speak frankly—"you have a
righuto do as you please—but we de
cided—didn't we?—that, our engage
ment was not to be announced for a
"Of course we did," she agreed.
"You told your people and I told
mine—that's all"
A look of relief came to his face.
Perhaps Tom Chandler had congratu
lated him only with the hope of as
certaining whether or not he was en
gaged to Mildred. But it was an un
derhanded way to learn the truth. If
that was the fellow's object, he was

a cad. The lover's face flushed
"Why?" Milly questioned. "Has
any rumor of our engagement gotten
about "
"Chandler spoke to me about it just
now," Arthur Informed her. "I shall
demand an explanation from him
and mighty soon too. What right had
he to say that you told him of it when
you had not?"
All the color left Mildred's cheeks.
She was frightened. Her mind work
ed quickly, and she foresaw the con
sequences if Arthur should demand
an explanation from Tom. Tom would
tell the truth, and mercilessly. It
would be wiser for her to forestall
his action immediately, it was the
only safe course left open to her.
"Arthur," she said quickly, "I did
not acknowledge to you that 1 had
mentioned our engagement to Tom
because it seemed dishonorable to
him to explain to you why I men
tioned it. Y'ou see, dear, I had to
tell him in order to make him be
lieve that there was 110 hope for
| him."
I.lke an Accusation
The words were more like an ac
cusation than a question, and she ans
wered promptly:
"I had to Arthur. Can't I make ycu
see how necessary it was? 1 would
have been very cruel to let him go
on hoping and unless I hurt him
he would not give up hope. So I had
to hurt him. Hear, you see how it
was, don't you?"
'"Yes." si owl y and gravely. "I see
* ou thought it was necessary
Mildred. But I did not understand
before. I knew that Chandler admir
ed you, but I did not suppose tiiat it
had gone so far"—
She interrupted him sharply. "You
did -not suppose that, any man but
you cared for me like that? Well,
you see, Tom did even more than
you care for me, Arthur For he
would trust me in the face of any
thing. Y'ou wouldn't!"
"Milly!" his exclamation was full
or pain. "How can you say such a
"Because it is true!" she insisted.
iou are displeased and cross with
me because I told an old friend cf
my engagement when it was abso
lutely necessary for his own sake
that I do so."
"I am not uispleased, dear, nor
I angry. I understand all about it
I now. But 1 was afraid that Chand
ler might talk about it."
I won't. I can promise you
jhat. But," her eyes snapping, "what
lif he did? It is not a disgraceful
j secret. It seems a pity that you
I should have asked me to marry vou
if you are so terrified lest peo'ple
suspect that you are engaged to me."
Of course he had to protest and
apologize and explain. He would an
nounce the facts to-morrow if she
wished. He had deferred doing so
because he thought that a long en
gagement would be hard for her. If
she did, not mind, he surely did not.
At last she forgave him and agreed
that they would best wait for awhile
longer before making the affair pub
lic. t
j "But. you need not fear that Tom
will tell our secret." she assured lrm.
"He's too much hurt. So much hurt,
ih fact, dropping her voice to a con
fidential pitch, "that he confessed to
me that-he means to enlist very soon.
I think that's pretty fine of him, don't
you, Arthur?"

She was such a pretty creature I
with lovely hair and eyes and a J
charming smile—evidently one of
those ingenuous, natural girls that
you like at once—and the soldier
with whom she was dining was a
good-looking, well set-up lad. And
they seemed to be having such a
beautiful time together.
It was plain that she was the
memory he was going to carry with
him to France. His mind would
turn again and again, to,
"Y'ou and the fountain's splash,
And the song of the trees,
The tilt of your hat and the flash
Of your lips and the breeze,
Scent of the smoke and sachet —
Were your eyes hazel or blue? —
Under'the lanterns a-sway,
Summer and You!
It was as pretty and romantic a
scene as anyone would want to look
at, and the most stony-hearted
cynic could scarcely have observed
those two, so delighted with each oth
er, so happy to be together, and not
have involuntarily and sympatheti
cally smiled and then sighed.
But—there is always a "but"—
although I liked and admired that
attractive girl, X wanted to go over
and preach a little sermon to her,
in spite of my horror of preaching.
Really, though, she deserved it. .
There was her soldier, immacu
late, neat as a pin, shining from the
top of his head to the toe of his
boot. And she—well she was a bit
sloppy. Her hair was lovely in tint,
shone; her white georgette frock was
but it had not been brushed until it
pretty, but it was anything but fresh;
her white shoes were soiled; and
the gloves she threw on the table
beside her would not have been
countenanced in Spotlesstown.
She wasn't keeping mi her morale
half as well as he was keeping up
his. He looked as if he thought ev
erything about her was charming,
but ho wouldn't always remain blind
to her carelessness, and sooner or
.later it would irritate and annoy
him. He would notice that her petti
coat dangled half an inch below
her skirt and that her heels were
run over and that she never used
quite enough hairpins to keep her
hair up.
These trifles would get on his
nerves, and he would . exaggerate
them. Her besetting sin—that lack
of daintiness—might very easily be
come the little rift within the lute
that by and by would make their
music mute.
My eye was caught by a para
graph in a newspaper the other
day. It stated that the Government
insisted that the soldiers should be
clean shaven for two reasons. The
first was that a clean shave assisted
the gas mask to fit more accurately;
the second, that, it preserved the sol
dier's morale.
I hastened to ask a man if a clean
sljfSve made any difference to his
feelings and his outlook on'life.
"I should say so," he replied.
"When I obviously need one I feel
like a hobo and I slink around like
a criminal. After I've had it X am
again a decent member of society
and can look the whole world In
the eye. No one has ever been able
to explain the peculiar psychological
effect of a clean shave, but every
man knoxfrs that It exists. It is a
tonic to the spirit and a moral sup
A few moments after this con
versation I met a woman I know.
"You're looking very blithe and
happy and good and gay," I said,
"The world is evidently treating you
very nicely." ,
She laughed. "I didn't think so
this morning. I got up with the
b'ackest kind of blues. I couldn't
see a gleam of sunshine anywhere.
So I took my invariable cure."

Ohio Physician
Dr. F. M. Edwards for 17yearstreated
scores of women for liver and bowel ail

his patients a prescription made of a

These tablets are wonder-workers on
the liver and bowels, which cause a
