    "When a Girl Marries"
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problems of a Girl Wife
"I'm going to ask you to act as
cashier again to-night," said our lieu
tenant when I arrived at the canteen.
"You handle the money so quickly and
accurately, Mrs. Harrison, that it might
be a good idea for you to give bond and
take the cashier's place regularly."
"Oh. I'd much rather be a waitress
and do the cashier's work just in
emergencies," I replied quickly.
Then, as I took my place in the little
cage, it flashed through my mind that
someone else would have to go my bond
since I hadn't a possession in the world
with which to back a money pledge.
And as I sat making change I found
mvself a little sullen and abused over
things. The lieutenant had just said i
that I had a real aptitude for handling
money, but Jim didn't regard me as |
important enough to have any to j
handle. Surely, surely, I must go into
this matter with him.
As a matter of fact it was many j
days before I found my opportunity i
to discuss an allowance with Jim.
In the meantime a number of other |
matters surged up to the surface of |
life and demanded immediate attention.
There was no denying them, so my own
problems had to be side-tracked for the
time being.
Just before closing time Tom Ma-.
son strolled into the canteen and be
gan looking around in evident search
for some one. Carlotta Sturges came
to his rescue at once. Tray in hand,
she smilingly piloted him to the
cashier's cage. I found myself brist
ling a little with resentment that any
one should take for granted that Tom
M" son must be looking for me. so 11
greeted him with a rather sharp:
"< iood evening. Were you looking I

"t was." he replied imperturably,

Tom, and disappeared outside to re

Obviously that meant that he was i

blood boiled at the effrontery that
arranged a party of four, in which I
must be paired off with a man other
than my own husband, and see an
other girl as the partner of the man

Food experts agree in urging greater consump

Physicians advise the more general use of or
anges as a help to keeping well and fit.
Government officials favor eating oranges to
conserve meats, grains and other solid foods.
Sealdsweet oranges are the tree-ripened, sweet,
juicy ones, real good all the way through.

"No, 1 won't run away," I replied
wondering if his pica had anything
to do with our encounter that after
noon. "I'll be ready in a minute."
"We've got to feed these Cantcen

I chummiest possible air when Car

Pat agreed, and Tom seised my

explain that he and this mining
man of his might end up in a Tur- !

"Exemplary wife!" exclaimed j
Tom. "She doesn't even ask who

tell. It's that new western mining
man, I-ane Cosby—big. upstanding
chap about fifty—the fellow who
startled the coast seven or eight
years ago by marrying little Vale
rie Demmerais, the old fruit king's
' daughter. N'o one saw why a pretty
j kid with money and position want
-1 ed to marry a man almost as old as
| her father. But they've got along

' "So far'."' I asked, interested in
spite of myself in this very human 1
bit of gossip that seemed imping
ing 011 the edges of my life.
"So far!" repeated Tom. "They've
been living in a little town out

i indifferently.
By now we had arrived at the
Clinsarge and .were following the
Captain to the corner table, which
I seemed to be Pat's special posses

and consulted us about the order
Tom leaned over and answered my
last remark as studiously as if it
had been a question:

guide and mentor when she gets
here in a week or so. Jim prom

Several letters have come to nie
from women who have their soldier
sweethearts and husbands safely
back from "Over There," but who
are sorely puzzled by the change
that has come over them.
In every case, the men in question I
have been in the front line trenches, .
and have gone through the shot and
shell of those last terrible, lighting
days. They felt, rather than heard,
the numbing silence more awful
than the din that began at 111
o'clock, that fateful November morn- i
ing when the order to "cease firing" |
was given. j
"It was the silence that got me— |
I could stand everything but that," |
one woman quoted her husband us j
saying, and she goes on to say that \
after the first enthusiasm of home- I
coming was over, he seemed to care j
for nothing but to sit quietly and j
think. The old amusements about ;
which he had been so keen, before ■
he went to France, now fell fiat, and ■
even the especial interest of a gar
den, that formerly occupied every
spare moment, fails to exercise any
There seems to be nothing else j
to suggest to those women but to |
wait and let time, the all-healing j
unguent, work its habitual miracle.'i
Some men are pre-eminently fitted
to be soldiers, men of rugged
fibre, iron nerve, slow sensibilities,
such are capable of shedding the
harrowing specter of war by rea
son of their temperament.
Others, more sensitive, are ob
sessed by their experiences, and
find it impossile to erradicate war
impressions immediately. They live
over and over these scenes, until
something more compelling comes
along to replace them, or until time
gets in its handiwork.
Quiet the Best Restorer
This period of adjustment is the
time for a conscientious wife to be
what Sir Walter Scott calls* "a min
istering angel." Produce pipe, slip
pers and house coat, and be prepared
to cultivate a sympathetic silence,
if that is what is demanded by the
lacerated nerves of your man. Don't
expect one who has just escaped
death —and has seen his friends drop
around him by the score—to call for
his dancing pumps and betake him
self to the nearest cabaret as soon as
lie has hung up his trench helmet.
However, it is all a question of
nerves and their sensitiveness to
receiving and retaining impressions.
The cabaret may be exactly the
medicine that will work wonders in
restoring a certain type, it may give
the necessary stimulus craved, or,
again, it may be an added horror.
So if you are a wife, or a sweet
heart, and are puzzled by having a
soldier man given to long, deep re
flection, don't despair, it may be
only natures way of restoring the
balance. It is hardly fair to expect
a sensitive man who has been
through the hell of the trenches to
come back to you as if he had re
turned from a jolly weekend, and is
feeling particularly fit after the ex
In the first enthusiasm of getting
back it may even seem that Way,
but the energy for. frivolity is more
than apt to flag, and a pipe and
slippers to win the day.
A correspondent who signs her
self "Louise" is feeling particularly
discouraged at this state of affairs.
She was married pust before her
husband sailed for France, and she
has taken great pride in her loy
alty. sternly declining to attend any
of the meetings of the dancing club,
of which they were both enthusias
tic members before the war began.
She had fully expected to find her
young husband quite as keen on
dancing after he got back as ho was
before he sailed. And I think, in
spite of all her determination to be
a model wife, she is beginning to
feel just a little sorry for herself.
| Louise tells me that she is just
i eighteen so it is not difficult to
I understand why she expects her
i man to display the customary ardor
j for dancing and musical comedy
1 that he had before he went march
! ing off. He has been 'through an
| experience that Is likely to exer
cise a sobering influence for years,
j if not for life.
I No man ran have been through
j the hell and glory of Ohateau
| Thierry and not have reached the
| climax of human emotion.. He has
[ taken part in the greatest conflict
I the world has ever known. He has
| drunk his coffee in the gray of
I early morning with his comrades.
! and at night he has come back
j without them. He has made a crony
of death, week in and week Out in
the trenches, and there have been
times when death would have been
I easier than living.
[ Whatever life has to offer in the
way of emotion, keyed to the ut;
most limit, the men who fought dur
ing those last days experienced to
the full. And a man cannot drain
the cup to the dregg and in a few
weeks accommodate himself to the
pace of a suburban husband, inter
ested in his former dancing club and
the lawn mower.
He can easily manage to drop
back into his old place if he went
over there and got no further than |
one of the big training camps, but
it is not quite reasonable to expect
it if he xvent "over the top" and has
come back to you either gassed or
Dropping tlic 'Heroic Attitude
All along the line there is be
ginning to be a general let-down in
the heroic attitude taken by women
during the war. The "Near East"
may demand their charity and sac
rifice as much as Belgium, but it is
difficult to get them keyed to the
necessary pitch of enthusiasm over
further horrors; they have been
"fed up" on atrocities and the pen
dulum is beginning to swing back
They saved, rationed their fam
ilies, sewed for the Red Cross and
practised amazing economies. Now
they went to eat. dress and be
merry and realize that all of life is
not wailing and lamentation.
But it would take nn incorrigible
pessimist to believe that they xvill
ever go back to the utter frivolity of
their pre-war existence. Shopping
for amusement, shopping when thev
never intended to buy, matching
scraps of bright colored ribbons to
xvhile away a morning. Judging
their friends by the initials on
their dollies and the size of their
motors, and the names—that always
rose like cream to the tops of their
card baskets no I don't believe
xvill go back to these things:
a little abiding light must have come
to them while they rolled bandages
for their men over there.
Advice to the Lovelorn
I am a bookkeeper, seven month out
of business school. While there I took
a great liking to my teacher, and can
not forget him. He was very good to
me, giving me a great deal of private
help. I thought it was because of his
kindness to me and because I saw him
so often that I thought of him so much.
But since I have left school he is con
stantly in my thoughts. No matter
what I may me doing, if I give myself
up to thought, my mind turns to him.
At night 1 even dream of him. I have
tried very hard to put him out of my
mind, but I cannot do so, and this
makes me very miserable. You see,
I do not care for boys in general, and
have very little to do with them, but
this man seems to have some magne
tism about him that attracts people to
him, and . now I cannot free myself
from this infatuation.
I am seventeen and do not know
what to do. This teacher does not
know anything at all about this.
Please advise me as to how I can for
get him (if that is possible, which does
not seem so to me).
Unfortunately, there is no magic
means of recovering from an infatu
ation. But accept my assurance that
time will restore to you your composure.
You are very young. Accept all the
opportunities you have to meet other
I am engaged to a soldier who is
now overseas. I expect to marry him
just as soon as he returns. Before he
left he made me promise that I would
not go with other boys.
Now Miss Fairfax. I have not as
yet, but it is really monotonous to only
keep company with girls. Very often
I am left alone because they have ap
pointments with boys, and I am unable
to join them on account om my pro
mise. I am sure I would never fall in
love with any one, but would like to
entertain a few boys. My mother'
would permit me to have them for sup
per and to remain evenings at our
house. I think this would be pleasant
on all sides but I do not feel as if I
could break my promise.
