"When a Girl "
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problems of a Girl Wife
(Copyright, 1919, King Features Syn
dicate, Inc.)
When I got to the theater at a quar
ter past eight, Jim was waiting. With
bim waa Dick West. I had a sudden
feeling of relief because It wasn't Tom
Mason, as I had been fearing ever,
since Jim's abruptly ended telephone
message to me.
"Military promptness," said Jjm,
beaming. "AA'e Harrisons are never
late, West. Anne, meet the new firm
—Harrison, West and Company, oil
stocks a specialty."
"Shake, partnersaid Dick West
with a conscious exaggeration of his
western manner.
He seized my hand in the smooth
fingered grip of his slim brown ones,
and flashed his sharp brown eyes
across my face, smiling a slightly
twisted, maroon-lipped smile. Good look
ing alert, and with that touch of the
exotic that marked his sister Doris,
Dick West struck me again as a man
to like, but not to trust.
"The new firm!" I said smiling in
set fashion, even while I was gather
ing impressions. "I hope you'll always
do as well as with Salt Water Oil. Let s
hope this play is a jolly way of cele
brating— a—a good beginning. And
we've our Betty safe, again, too.
"Betty?" asked Dick West idly.
Jim scowled, either at my ill-success
in seeming cordial when I didn t feel
or at what he had to tell.
"Oh, a girl who threw a scare into
us. But that's all over now. AVe
aren't going to this show, Annie.
Couldn't get a thing at any of the
agents. AVe'll jump a taxi and go round
to the Harrington. Drysen said he d
have something there for me."
So we stowed ourselves away into a
taxi with the calm extravagance of the
new-rich who forget how they have
walked the week before to save carfare.
And we whirled over to the other thea
ter, where Jim hurried up to the box
ottice and demanded the four tickets
Drysen had sent over for Mr. Harrison.
"Best we could do was a box," said
the ticket agent.
• Til take it," replied Jim carelessly,
shoving a yellow* bill under the ticket
"But, Jim —that's wasting three
seats," I murmured aghast. And then,
before Jim could express the annoy
ance that seemed flashing at me from
his eyes, Dick AA'cst broke in :
"They ought to serve theater boxes
filled or empty as required. It is a
shame to waste the seats. Why not
phone for that pretty little sister of
"Go to it!" laughed Jim. "That'll
please Phoebe and save Anne from an
attack of conscience."
"Well, I'll tell you what's better thin
phoning!" exclaimed Mr. Wit; with
what seemed an effort to apr ar sud
denly inspired, "I'll run roum. and get
her. I've just remembered~*wat she's
dining with Miss Mason —;U men
tioned it last night. So I'll bring the
hostess along, and see if 1 can't pick
up another man. See you later folks."
Hardly watting for Jim's n I of ap
proval. he hailed a taxi and w s whirled
"Might a.9 well chn <■ i' nd see the
beginning of the show," i .d Jim. "I'll
leave the tickets in the box office. ' AA'est
will guess where they are all right."
I managed to swallow all comments,
exclamations, objections and questions
and meekly preceded Jim into the thea
ter and down the aisle to the stage box.
The openin , chorus was already on, but
I received ny reward for amiability and
discretion when Jim stooped swiftly In
the sh.n >v if the heavy curtains at the
back c the box and kissed me.
"Tbi front of the box for yours, lit
tle 1 ly." he whispered. "You look
pret enough to divide applause with
the .*ont row chorus."
• . low about the star?" I asked, preen
ir , myself pertly and making ready
v. ith en ; t delight to flirt with my Jim.
"infant, you 16ok as if you might be
h'r ,* randdaughter.'"
Jim laid his fingers on my shoulder
i nd propelled me to the front of the
box. I could feel the magnetism of his
touch through the chiffon of my dress,
end tingled with happiness. But when
1 eached to take his hand he drew it
way quickly and busied himself with
liis program.
"Want to look like a couple of honey
mooners from the country?" he whis
pered, with an annoyance that was only
partly masked.
His tender mood had passed. But I
couldn't readjust myself so rapidly.
I There has been
no raise in price

be the logical resort

er reasons dictate a
"You haven't told me a thing about
the new firm," 1 ventured, under cover
of a number when the chorus was ca
vorting to its own loud song.
"Can't you wait till the end of the
act?" asked Jim with impatience that
said clearly, "Let me alone! Don't you
see I want to enjoy the show?"
I was hurt and crept into my shell,
making no effort to change Jim's mood.
We sat in silenco during several num
bers. and I was almost relieved when
a stir in the tiny foyer, just outside our
box, told me that Mr. West and the
girls had arrived. Jim and I slipped
back for a ciuick greeting and then
found our places again.
Phoebe sat next to me at the rail
with Dick West behind her. Now and
then he leaned forward to whisper to
her, but steadily from the back of the
box where Kvvy had taken her place
with Jim there came the murmur of
low voices and ripples of laughter.
Evidently Jim wasn't insisting that
Evvy "wait until the end of the act."
The ugly old feeling of neglect and
loneliness began taking possession of
me once again. I found myself won
dering almost eagerly whether Mr. West
had invited another man and who the
sixth member of our party was likely
to be.

Mildred Brent, never over-con- |
science', was not hampered by a j
sense of guilt -as she faced her be- J
"Well," she said, "what's the mat
ter? I thiught you were in Bridge- !
"Was that why you had Chandler I
here?" Arthur asked.
"Why, yes—l mean I knew my j
evening would be spent alone, so I j
let him come."
"You did not expect me, did you?"
he questioned.
Honora, watching the little j
drama, wondered that the girl did I
not perceive that the man was un
der some adverse mental or nervous f
strain. But Mildred, always secure I
in her egotism, noted nothing ex
cept that Arthur was disagreeably
persistent. She did not suspect that
some grave trouble was on his mind.
"Of course I did not expect you,"
she replied. "You told me you
would not be here this evening.
And by the way"—with a glance
at the clock—"if you had come live
minutes later you would have found
all the lights out. This is a queer
time to make a call."
She had the faculty of putting
others in the wrong. Arthur usu
ally submitted; now, however, he
flushed argrily.
"And this is a queer hour, too,
for you to be having callers," he
Honora interposed. "Tom Chan
dler was just going, Arthur. Mil

him. It was not his fault that he
stayed so late—nor was it Mil
Arthur Apologizes
The man's manner changed. "Oh,
he came to see both of you, did he? j
he asked. "I beg your pardon. I j
did not understand.
But his attempt at an apology >
did not come soon enough. Mil- j
dred's eyes flashed. ..I
1 "May I inquire why you should i
' apologize to Honora for your dis- |
j pleasure—as if the fact of her PJ"es- I
! ence made Tom s call all right. ,
i She may let you think that he canj j
Ito see her as well as me. Hut he .
: did not. He called me up and asked ,
l if he could see me. Honora stayed
lin the living room through the en-I
jtire evening of her own choice. You
; mav as well understand that. 1
I "And you may as well under- .
j stand, too. that 1 mean to have any |
callers here that I choose to have. ;
If you do not like it, you know what !
i you can do!"
"Mildred!" the exclamation was
Hbnora's. and she looked apprehen
sively at Arthur.
The man started to retort, then
closed his lips flrmly as if to gain
self-control. When he did speak
I his voice was cold and hard.
"I suppose I should hardly expect j
you to look at the thing sanely just
now, Mildred," he said. "You are
in a temper. lam sorry, for I came
here to-night to ask your help. I
see I made a mistake.'"
He started toward the door, but
Honora checked him.
"Arthur!" she ejaculated. "What
help do you need? Is anything
He stopped and looked at her.
"Yes, my father is seriously ill. He
had a verv bad attack two hours
ago. I had just reached home after
mv run down to Bridgeport. For
tunately 1 got the doctor imme
diatelv. Father is more comfortable
now and a trained nurse is with
him. But mother is very nervous,
and I came over here thinking that
perhaps Mildred would come around
and stay with her to-night.
"Mother should have some woman
with her, yet it is so late that she
would not let me send for any one
and insists that she is all right. I
did not tell her I was coming here.
I knew she would protest. Never
theless, it is hard on her to be alone
—with only me."
Honora Speaks to Milly
Honora turned to her sister, 'Mil
ly. get ready and go around to Mrs.
Bruce's, dear."
"Why should I go?" Mllly ob
jected. "There are lots of other
people she would rather have. I
don't know anything about illness."
"Milly," Honora spoke sternly,
"you are going to be Mrs. Bruce's
daughter some day. She is in
trouble, and she has no daughter of
her own. Your duty lies there.
Come—l'll help you get ready."
Mildred shook her head obstinate
ly. "I can't!" she declared. "I tell
you I am a fool where there is ill
ness. I hate it."
"You will have nothing to do with
illness," Honora explained. "My
dear." lowering her voice, "this is
not a time for selfish considerations.
Arthur is in trouble. He has come
for you. Your place Is with his
Arthur Bruce had moved a few
feet away from the pair. He did
not hear Honora's words, but he saw
Mildred shrink front her sister as
she tried to lead her to the stairs.
"No!" she muttered. I can't go
—and I won't! Arthur has no right
to ask such a thing of me!"
"Honora!" Arthur interpreted,
"Please do not urge Mildred to do
that which is evidently so distaste
ful to her. I made a mistake in
coming. I am sorry. Good night!"
r He started towards the door, but
| Mildred did not move.
"Milly!" Honora's whisper was
' agonized. "Say you will go."
"I won't!" was the sudden reply.
! Arthur's hand was on the door-
I knob when Honora ran to his side,
i "What are you going to do. 1 am

She stopped, flushing scarlet.
fShe stammered "What are you going

"Do you mean," —he began.
"Yes," she said. "I do. If I will

Logical Time
There is no chance for
cheaper coal for the time
being, at least. The cost of
mining increased tremen
dously because of the wage
advances v granted miners
and other causes during the
war. Another factor that
contributed to higher fuel
prices was the increased
cost of transportation made
necessary by the higher
wages of railroad employes.
Now —mining costs will
not decrease unless there
is a readjustment of the
wage scale, and this the
operators do not feel in
clined to do because of the
possibility of strikes.
This is the logical time
to buy coal. You can save
little or nothing by waiting.
Kelley can supply you all
kinds and sizes promptly.
