as fast as ever did those of our soldier
boys to adjust the gasmasks from the
"Alert" position. And by twenty min
utes past seven I was all ready except a
pin or two Jim must adjust for me.
My own reflection in the mirror con
soled me a bit. My cheeks were flushed
and my eyes bright from the excitement
and hurry I had just gone through. My

radiance across my throat and shoul

I hurried out to the living room to
wake Jim with a kiss. I had begun to
understand what a nervous strain he'd
been undergoing for days. Those two
hours of whirling along at top speed
! and alternating between hope and fear
that my dress would come out right,
were about one per cent, of what Jim
been going through while chasing For
tune's car—wondering if his big deal
would end in ruin or success. And all
Jim's ugliness to me could be explained
In terms of his sudden nervous let
down when the hours of waiting were
ever drowned with. success.
So all malice—all anger and all hurt
were wiped from my memory when, I
went out to wake Jim. and ask him
to add the finishing touch of a friendly
pin or two to my costume.
"Wake up Mr. de Millions and play
lady's maid to your wife," said I.
"Franchette the re;#l maid is getting
out my errine coat and furs."
I had no more than said the words,
when I longed to recall them. I could
anticipate Jim's reply. "Cut out late
would-be-humor, Anna,"
Jim rose, stretched his arms above
his head and turned lazily to inspect
me. My heart gave a liopskip-and
jump. How handsome he was as he
stood there with his white shirt-sleeved
arms stretched above his dark head!
Why must we quarrel and hurt each
other and drift apart on the tide of
our angry, irritated words? I loved
my boy—he had once adored me. Why
couldn't we learn to accept each other
and adjust ourselves to the daily task
of living together?
At the thought of all we had lost.
I sank down in a chair and shut my
hands over my face. I wanted to con
jure back the poverty in which we had
been so rich.
Suddenly Jim's right arm went about
my shaking shoulders, and his left
hand tilted my head back against his
heart, I nestled close against him—
what peace.
"Poor little tired girl." he said, ten
derly. "How those clever Angers must
have flown! You're beautiful, dear
beautiful! I'm proud of you, my clever
little Lilac Princess.
I leaned against my Jim's heart—
happy! I Wanted to sob. I wanted to
laugh. And a little of both got into
my voice as I whispered:
"How rich' we are, dear—how very
rich—we have eacli other."

So absorbed was Mildred in writing
to Harold Hilton that she did not ap
pear below stairs as soon as Arthur
Bruse arrived.
Her failure to do this gave Honora
an opportunity for a word alone with
the caller.
"Good-evening," she said, coming into
the library, where Arthur was seated.
"Mildred will bo down In a minute."
As he rpse and stood before her she
had to pause to summon courage for
her next speech. "Do not mind, Ar
thur," she began at last, "if Milly is
a little out of sorts to-night. This mat
ter of the war—and various men she
knows enlisting—has, perhaps, gotten a
bit on her nerves." ,
The man's face lighted eagerly. "Is
she unhappy for fear I will go?"
".Oh, no, not a bit 1" Honora disclaim
ed hastily. "I mean," as she saw his
expression change. "I do not think
she is afraid—that is—she knows you
cannot leave home just now."
"I wish I could!" he declared
"You would find it hard to leave
Milly," she reminded him.
"Not so hard as staying away from
the place where all men must long to
be," he demurred.
"Then you love your country more
than Milly?" ..
Honora had not meant to ask this.
But the idea came to her mind so sud
denly that it expressed itself in words
before she was aware of it.
"Your voice sounds as if you hoped I
did." the man accused. "That was not
a fair question, Honora."
Two Different Things
"I know it was not," she admitted
contritely. "I did not intend to ask it.
It was. moreover, a foolish thing to
suggest. A man's love for a woman and
for his country are two very different
Then she went out into the hall to
call Mildred, her thoughts in a turmoil.
She had hoped to make things easy for
Arthur, and she had only complicated
Yet regretful as she was the con
viction was in her mind that this man
did not love her sister more than every
thing in the world. #lf he had. coupled
with his desire to go to the war, would
be the dread of leaving Mildred.
He and Mildred were engaged. Hon
ora reminded herself, fiercely. Then
she remembered Mifdred s comments at
table to-night. Surely, she did not
really love Arthur!
But the fact remained that the pair
expected to marry each other. That
was the only feature of the case that
should concern Honora. She would
leave the rest alone, o{ try to.
Meanwhile Mildred descended to the
library, slowly, as one who is not over
eager to meet her lover.
"How do you do 1" she said. "Ex
cuse me for keeping you waiting for a
while. I wanted to finish a letter I am
going to ask you to mail.. I will put
it here on the mantel. Do not forget
it, please."
"I won't." he promised. .

I dress on the envelope of her espistle, as
she hoped he would. Instead, he kissed
her, and she allowed him to do so with
out returning his caress. It was plain
that her thoughts were elsewhere.

for a few minutes, "do you know what

she explained. "He's In the Canadian

"Yes, I remember him."
That was the only rejoinder. It was
very exasperating.
"I am fond of him." Mildred went
on, desperately. "Indeed, I admire any
man who is brave enough to do his
duty as Harold has done his."
This struck home, for Arthur flushed.
"I remember your intimating that be

then, however, that there are variouß
other duties by which a man may be
"I did not agree to that. And any
way, that was before our own country

"I mean," -she explained, "that if I
were a man I would enlist to-morrow.
To tell the truth, Arthur. I do not un

can keep out of ii all."
"Some of us have responsibilities that

Is "giving up" pretty nearly every
thing you can think of, for tne sake
of the man you marry, a proof of
your love for him?
Multitudes of women have sup
posed this to be the case, and have
acted on it. Girls who marry your.g
are particularly likely to have this
idea, to believe they're going to be
better wives by ridding themselves
of every Interest in the world but
I believe any truly wise woman
would tell you that this is a seriously
mistaken view.
Girls who have a pretty talent for
music radiantly announce to you, as
soon as they become brides, that they
are "giving up" the piano or singing
in order to devote themselves utterly
to their husbands and their homes.
Studious girls boast that they are
going to give up reading and educat
ing themselves, athletic girls reck
lessly fling away their tennis rackets
and skates. Girls successfully start
ed in a trade or business or profes
sion throw it all overboard in a
Indeed there are girls who go a
great deal farther than this. Not
content with the inevitable separa
tion from the family group they have
grown up in. these -foolish young
creatures plan practically a lifelong
isolation with the man they are to
marry. Friends are cast into the
scrap-heap along with interests and
1 accomplishments.
"I'm giving up my really close, In
timate friend?," a young bride de-
I clared to me the other day. "I think
after a girl is married she doesn't
need any friends but her husband."
Making t nurxelf Uninteresting
Now what does this really mean?
Does it mean that a girl really ex
pects to give twelve or fourteen
hours a day to cooking and sock
darning, that this wonderful new life
of love and promise is to be merely
an uninterrupted round of drudgery?
She would deny hnytbing of the
Or does she have an undefined be
lief that site is making herself more
attractive, more desirable, by oblit
erating her own mind and personal
ity as far as possible and becoming

pression of her husband's ideas and
. Or does she think it's part of the
pomp and state of being married to
parade Jhe fact that a woman who
is equipped with a husband has only
domestic accomplishments anil only
"wifely" notions.
Not many men nowadays marry
with the idea of providing them
selves with an expert domestic ser
vant. And 1 hope there aren't many
women who are willing to be mar
ried for that purpose alone.
Sensible men and women marry
because they love each other, be
! cause they expect to help each other,
and because they hope to be the par
ents of beautiful, healthy children.
And Isn't it perfectly plain that a
woman can't possibly become a ca
pable wife and mother just by mak
ing herself uninteresting?
In fact, just the contrary is true.
If you who read this' are at that
delicate and perilous moment of be
ginning your married life, that mo
ment when it is so easy to make
grave mistakes and sri hard to repair
them—let me urge you not to "give
up" anything that will make life

Try to Enlarge Your I.lfe
You will need all the interests you

marriage can be made successful by

doors, hold fast to it. You can make

You can make married com
panionship a matter of healthy give
and-take. It's the marriages con
ducted on that principle that are the
successful ones.
And as for giving up your friends
merely in order to concentrate on
your husband, I assure you that you
should have Just the opposite aim.

tragically happened that husbands
who were the objects of too steady
concentration became Just a little
bored. And this is a thing to avoid,
if possible.
Instead of stripping your life of
friends, you should try to make your
new hom e a centre of friendship.
Make it a gathering place that will
have a real and precious meaning,
not only to you two who love each
other, but to your whole circle. And
let the circle grow all the time.
Eighteen-year-old brides don't of
ten face the fw?t of marriage as a
whole. They are even sometimes so
■ child-like and short-sighted that they
fail to take motherhood into account.
Equipment for Motherhood
They are so occupied with being
made love to that they don't think
very much about that glorious privi
lege ahead of them. Their imprac
tical plan, in fact, is to shut them
selves up in a very new little home
and be made lov e to for a 'lifetime.
But even if this plan would work,
which it doesn't, what a poor prepa
ration for motherhood it implies.
A mother who has given up friends,
interests,, talents, occupations, ideas,
in the mistaken belief that this is a
wife's duly naturally will have noth- |
j ing left to give those eager ques- J
I tioning babies of hers who are short- j
Jy coming to cluster about her and j
ask her for those very things that
she has "given up!"
Do you suppose that your respon
sibility as a mother is ended when
you've seen that the milk bottles are
scientifically clean and the baby has
fresh air and warm clothing?
It's only just begun.
"You can't be any sort of a mother
unless your children believe in you. I
Unless they find you are a real per- \
son, who understands things and who !

Owing to certain conditions, I am not

I have never asked her to kiss me,

upon our return home in the evening,
asked me why I had never asked her
for a good night kiss. I told her that
I should like very much to do so, but
did not think a couple should kiss be
fore they are engaged. And I do not

engaged until we are sure that we can
