Everyone says that if Pat had struck
his gait sooner "
Jim's tone was ice and iron when
he interrupted:
"Evelyn, we're out on a pleasure
party and you are my 4 guest. Don't
| make me forget it,"
Tom laughed out a reply that
sounded comfortable and Intimate,
yet somehow made me shudder more
than all Evvy's malice.
"Look here, cousin mine—'tis time
for pussy to realize she's grown up
and that her claws are long and
strong—and scratchy. Of course
we're a chummy little group und
we can knock each other, but you
needn't go making a fool of your
self over the fact that Vee Dalton
is beautiful enough to turn a few
heuds beside Pat Dalton's —even
brother Jimmie's here. Funny. Jim,
how the only pretty woman in the
world who's willing to give other
pretty women breathing space is our
Donna Anna here—isn't it?"
"Oh, Anne's jealous too —aren't
you, girlie?" replied Jim easily—
"So Ave'll forgive Evvy for scratch
ing and be glad she doesn't freeze
folks like some folks not a thousand
miles away. Remember, my lady,
that Doris West is a tropical plant
and not used to frigid climes."
1 squirmed. Evidently I hadn't
been a really courteous hostess, and
Jim felt so at home with Tom and
Evvy that he could reprove me gent
ly in their presence.
I was glad When we stopped a
moment later and Dick West came
to our cab window to announce that
we must walk the rest of the way.
We were in front of a threadlike
brick passage between two build-

ings. It was a dark chasm, so nar
row that onlv one could cross it at
a time. It opened on a square court
yard with a large iron grating set
in the center. No chink of light
came up through the narrow open
ings in this grating. Dick West led
the way across it into a dingy door
way, up three flights of dark wooden
steps—through a tiled corridor and
at last down three flights of steps
And there we were in a brightly
lighted (Chinese restaurant with the
usual floor of mosaics, oakwood
tables inlaid with mother-of-pearl
and all the garish and showy trim
mings of the average Chinese res
taurant as we of America know it.
A wheezy player-piano was grinding
out "Mighty Dak a Rose" and a
dozen couples were dancing in the
cleared space in the middle of the
floor. It was about as thrilling as
the "Home Restaurant" at the cor- ,
tier of Main and State streets back
Every one seemed to think that a
splendid joke had been pulled off—
and mirth waxed mighty when Dlek
West pointed out a large front en
trance brightly lightly and presided
over by two crouching stone drag
"We could have come in that
way," he laughed. "I just put in all
that traveling to —make it harder."
And every one seemed to enter
into the spirit of his adventure—
Phoebe most ot' all. Put X was
thinking of the hints Evvy had
thrown out about Virginias ex
travagance—or the intimate way
she and Phoebe had stood together
in the dressing room of the lto
chambeau—but most of all, 1 was
thinking of the way Phoebe had
plied that pernicious little lip-stick.
So 1 didn't enter whole-heartedly
into the spirit ot' things.
It was Evvy who noticed this
first. She leaned across Tom and
spoke to me in a rallying tone:
"Tom, do be nicer to your Donna
Anna. She's as pale as Phoebe used
to be before 1 taught the baby to
rouge a bit. Are you bored, dear, or
is it just that you don't like the
way the West family is monopoliz
ing the Harrisons? You know Jim
is rich now," she giggled, "you can't
expect him to forego the spice of life
now that he can afford it. They're
an extravagant lot, the Harrisons,
with emotions or money or flirta
tions. Watch my little pupil,
Evvy's eyes met mine mockingly,
challengingly. And suddenly Pat
Dalton's warning flared out in my
"The war gave her the privilege
of breaking her engagement to Jim.
But if I know Ewy, she'll try to get
even. Your brother and Phoebe may
be her way."
Phoebe was changed. sadly
changed. Was Ewy deliberately
setting out to cheapen her stand
ards? And why was Virginia so
blind to it all?

The other day a correspondent
wrote me a delightful letter. 1
would like to have severul thou
sand copies mimeographed and give
one to every bride of my acquain
The original is too long for re
production in this column and a bit
too confidential, but the gist of the
letter is that it is better to start
marriage with too little than too
The lady went on to tell me some
thing of her married life, which has
now. very nearly reached the quar
ter century mark. And among the
blessings that helped to make that
partnership a success, there was—
you would never guess in a thou
sand years—the mortgage on their
first home. She says: "That mort
gage was the balance wheel that
prevented our flying off at separate
langents. it compelled my husband
to forego the various extravagances
to which he had a tendency, and
it kept me from becoming a victim
of fads."
The writer was one of two girls
and her sister had mude what was
regarded as a brilliant match, while
my correspondent became the wife
of a clerk in a big firm. She mar
ried the man of her choice against
the wishes of her parents and they
contributed nothing in the way of a
nest egg.
The young man had five hundred
dollars and the bride got a present
of a thousand from a romantic
great-aunt, who was spurred to this
lavishness, apparently, by the gen
eral opposition of the family. With
this fifteen hundred dollars the
young people made the first pay
ment on a tive thousand-dollar home
in the suburbs of a big city.
There was a college not fur away,
and the bride let out the superfluous
rooms to bachelor instructors. She
did most of her own work till her
first child was born, and after that
she managed with a laundress, a

A Simple Way to
Remove Dandruff
There is one sure way that has
never failed to remove dandruff at
once, and that is to dissolve it. then
you destroy it entirely. To do this,
jUst get übout four ounces of plain,
common liquid arvon from any drug
store (this is all you will need),
apply it at night when retiring; use
enough to moisten the sculp and rub
It in gently with the finger tips.
By morning most .if not all, of
your dandruff will be gone, and
three or four more applications will
completely dissolve and entirely de
stroy every single sign and trace of
it, no matter how much dandruff
you may have.
You will find all Itching and dig
ging of the scalp will stop Instantly,
and your hair will be fluffy, lus
trous, glossy, silky and soft, and
look and feel a hundred times bet
fireless cooker and a cleaning wo
man who came for a couple of hours
It was difficult at first, as she had
had very little training In the do
mestic arts, but after she began to
use her brains and systematize
things much of the housekeeping
became Automatic.
The hardest thing in those first
years of her marriage was that she
had no time to keep up with fads
that seemed to her more important
than they really were—not fads in
clothes and furniture and diet, but
intellectual fads that appeared to be
world movements.
Her sister, for instance, belonged
to a coterie of women that changed
their fads as often as they did their
hats, and it gave my friend a strand
ed feeling at tirst not to be able to
take part in these various exotic
There was the wonderful Swami,
for instance—the East Indian in the,
highly becoming turban, whom thev'
got in to direct their thought and
leach them "how to grow." It
seemed this cocoa-colored gentle
man could banish age by keeping
one serene and "compel" all man
ner of blessings and prosperity bv
directing the thoughts of his circle.
My correspondent felt like a poor
benighted worm because she hadn't
the time to join this magic circle.
But what could a poor girl do with
the baby to look after, the dinner
to get and the various other house
hold chores to claim her attention.
In the meantime her sister and her
friends were soaring above such
sordid details into the realms of
"It seems funny now, but those
days it came near being a real
tragedy. I wanted to keep abreast
of things, and I had to wash out
little flannel shirts and not forget
the tireless cooker entirely.
"My husband played golf at a
nearby course on Saturday after
noons, but he could never finish tip
at the clubhouse life with the rest of
the men because there was always
a good deal of treating, and one
can't treat with a mortgage hang
ing over one's head.
And in spite of everything the
Swami and his thought and the
game of golf without the convivial
climax, we were preparing to re
duce the mortgage by a thousand
dollars at the end of the first three
and a half years.
When the mortgage was actu-

ally reduced it didn't seem as if
such happiness could be possible.
This hideous "scrap of paper" that
had to be cajoled, sacriiiced to and
slaved for in and out of season had,
after all, made these two young
people the best of friends, it had
put both of them on their metal,
and neither had been found want
ing. They came through the. ordeal
chums and that was better than the
thousand dollar.--.
Kept Husband Abstemious
In the meantime, as she said, "it
kept my husband abstemious, while
that virtue was not entirely easy
for him. And it not only kept me
from the Swatni and his higher fool
ishness, but it saved me from" a
number of other fads as well.
"My sister and her friends are
still pursuing these intellectual
phantoms, two of them have become
divorced, and the rest are rather an
uneasy lot, and as far as prosperity
is concerned, we have caught up
with them long ago."
In this kind of marriage where
genuine responsibility is shared by
both of the partners, there is no
time for those reactions where the.
wife becomes convinced that she
does not feel toward her husband
exactly the way she felt toward
her sweetheart, and if there is too
much leisure to think about it, she
is apt to conclude that she does not
love him and that she has made the
mistake of her life in marrying him.
Now that mortgage of three thou
sand live hundred dollars with
which these two young people be
gan life prevented this sort of in
trospection. They were buying a
home, and the big, important tiling
in their lives was to get it paid for,
not the thrill-producing power of
the husband's step on the stairs.
And as for the soulmato business,
they just couldn't afford such cavi
ar —it was as out of the question
as hothouse peaches In January
would have been.
My correspondent concludes that,
while the mortgage had been paid
so long as to be forgotten, and they
have moved into a far more pros
perous home, they always think of
the mortgage and those first years
with a genuine affection.

Advice to the Lovelorn
I am engaged to a girl of my own
ago, twenty. She is always jealous
when 1 speak to other girls in her
presence. Now she has threatened
to break our acquaintance if she
ever sees me speak to any girl again.
She herself always speaks to boys.
I'd like you to advise me what to do,
us I dearly love that girl.
B. S. G.
This is a very painful matter to
handle, but you must not make the
mistake of agreeing to what your
sweetheart so mistakenly demands.
She ought not to wish you to con
duct yourself otherwise than pleas
antly and civilly to any girls that
you meet. Would it be possible for
you lo have a frank talk with her
on the subject of jealousy, so as to
help her to overcome it, or if not,
can't you get some older person to
talk to her?

that will darken gray hair, and make
it soft and glossy. To a half pint of
water add 1 ounce of bay rum, a

V* ounce of glycerine. These ingre

to the hair twice a week until the
desired shade is obtained. This will
make a gray haired person look
twenty years younger. It is not a

and does not rub oft."
