"When a Girl Marries"
A New, Romaniic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problems of a Girl Wife
(Copyright, 1919, King Feature Syn
dicate, Inc.)
Even in the old days when I did
not like Virginia and thought her
a snob, I realized that she was a
thoroughbred. And when I came out
into the lobby of the Clinsarge ac
companied by the man who had
been Virginia's husband, she proved
what a real thoroughbred she is.
Carlotta in her flamboyant checks
—Carlotta clinging to Pat's arm—
Virginia did not appear to see. Nor
Pat. She didn't turn scarlet, fidget
and look away as another woman
might have done. She simply didn't
see them. For me she had her
warm friendly smile of welcome,
and for Neal a quick:
"Delighted to see you looking so
well, Lieutenant Hyland."
This greeted Neal yet held him
off. He couldn't stop and make it
obvious that Virginia was cutting
two of his party. The situation was
Phoebe behaved somewhat differ
ently. We encountered her on the
steps of the hotel. Head high, eyes
ablaze, she threw out a "Hello,
Anne!" and ignored everyone else
in our group. It was young—and
Tat didn't notice her until she
spoke. Jaw tense and eyes far away,
he was walking at Carlotta's side
and indicating in every protecting
stoop of his shoulders that she was
getting all his care and attention.
But I think Pat didn't know that
Carlotta was there.
On the curbing he stopped.
"Was that little 'Phoebe?" he
asked, turning his head as if to
make sure.
But I knew for whom that long,
searching look had come into his
eyep. I knew, too. why his head,
usually flung so high, was jutting
out now with set jaw and tense
mouth. For a minute he stared like
that. Then as he swept off his hat
the old devil-may-care look came
into his blue eyes and the reckless
tilt to his head.
"Carlotta and I have decided to
call it a day and motor out the
Shore road for tea. Want to come,
folks? Or does sister want a little
private reunion with Neal?"
"Please wouldn't you understand
if I wanted to have Neal all to my
self?"! a asked.
"Go to it, sister Anne. And hug
him for me." laughed Carlotte.
"Only last night I was telling my
pater that if young Neal was less
\oung by about five years, or Car
lotta less old by the same number,
he wouldn't be safe.
At that Neal perked up. The ex
pression Phoebe's cut had brought
to his face faded before a half-em
barrassed, half-pleased smile.
"I'll try to grow up P. D. Q., Miss
Carlotta," he cried.
"Take your time," chuckled Pat.
Again I wondered about Carlotta.
Had she seen Phoebe's cut? Did ;
she know what it meant? Was she
enough of a brick to rally her forces
to help Neal pull himself together?
I was inclined to think so, in
licned to like her. But why—if she
were indeed the brick that Terry
and Neal and Tony had called her—
was she strolling off. vampire-fash-

ion, to have tea with Virginia's
husband? Fod with her proprie
tary hand still on Pat's arm, she
called her good-bys and the crowd
swallowed them.
Checks, rouge, cigarettes and all.
I might have liked Carlotta if it
had not been for Pat. Carlotta and
all, I had to like Pat. That was
the charm of him—the charm I felt
sure Virginia couldn't have for
I was so full of them that Neal
had to bring me back with a jerk.
"She cut me." he said. "Did you
see that, Babbsie? She could at
least have spoken to me—Virginia
did. Virginia had a dpcent word
for me, and in spite of my being
with Pat. But Phoebe hadn't even
as much feeling as the icy Vir
"But that was so different, Neal.
Virginia hadn't seen you before and
Virginia didn't speak to Pat—you
saw that."
Neal interrupted with an ugly
"Oh. so you're making the cases
parallel. Well to continue the par
ellel. Pat has sought consolation
elsewhere. Not a bad idea that!"
"Oh, Neal —don't be so cynical!"
I cried. "Come, let's hop into a
taxi and spin through the park.
My treat for once in my life."
It was amazing, but Neal actually
let me do what I like with him.
Once in the taxi, I returned to the
subject I thought Neal and I might
be able to thresh out sanely.
"Phoebe's so young, Neal and
proud. You didn't fight for her.
You ought to now. To save her

—and from herself. If you'd fight
there wouldn't be any opposition
from Virginia now—l'm sure of that.
Won't you try to save her?"
"Save her?" replied Neal curtly.
"It can't be done—not on my sal
ary. Phoebe's expensive. Jade neck
laces and earrings may be all right
for West to give, but I can't afford
f ent."
"Neal! Who told you?" I gasped,
knowing full well it was Ewy and
not daring to tell Neal what I
thought of her for fear he'd jump
out of the cab and disappear from
my ken again.
"Who told me doesn't matter.
Plenty of people know. But my
mother's ring gets thrown ba A at
me. Phoebe strikes me across the
face when I take her in my arms
—where she once thought she be
longed. And now she cuts me
she cuts me!"
I laid my hand in Neal's. Nestled
it there and tried for words to
soothe his hurt. I wanted to set
out of the taxi and hurry back and
box Phoebe's ears. I wanted to
call her a 'spoiled brat.' Instead I
said again:
"She's so young"—
"All right, have it that way
she's young." interrupted Neal with
a sneer. "Well, I'm through with
kittens that maul and scratch. I
like grown-up women —real women.
And next time I fall in love —if I
ever do—it won't be with a baby."
In a flash I remembered Carlot
ta's words:
"If young Neal were less young
by about five years—he wouldn't be

David Delaine surveyed himself in |
the mirror above the chiffonier in his j
hallroom. He was forced to acknowl- i
edge that his livery was becoming to
This conviction had been forced j
upon him yesterday when he tried on |
the outfit in the fitting rooms of Staf- j
ford & Co. It was also confirmed by
the suave salesman.
"Mr. Leighton will have no cause I
to be ashamed of his chauffeur," the |
man commented patronizingly. I j
may say frankly that we seldom turn ,
out a livery that is as stylish and al- I
together satisfactry on the wearer as
this is. Mr. Leighton never spares ex- |
pense, and in this case your appearance •
makes it worth while." j
David muttered some reply. The J
fellow's tone of patronage annoyed ;
him—yet, what else could an or- |
dinary chauffeur expect?
That his employer spared no ex
pense was true. It was evidenced by I
the quality and cut of the new suit, the .
good material of the leggins, the weight |
of the fur-collared coat, the style of
the hat. What a waste this all might
have been if David's references had not
been up to the required standard!
DeLaine appreciated with a little
thrill that Samuel Leighton had shown
| a flattering confidence in him. Yet,
I after all, if he had not proved satisfac
tory, his successor could wear these
same clothes with some alterations.
But it was not easy in these days
to hire a strong-, good-looking young
man The service needed the youth of
the land. Perhaps that was why Mr.
Leighton seemed anxious to retain his
new employe. David was not vain, yet
he would have been a fool had he not
known that his appearance was not un
An Interesting Adventure
He frowned now at his reflection in
his mirror, then, his sense of humor
coming to the fore, he laughed.
"I can surely afford a few months
out of a lifetime in pursuing an In
teresting adventure," he mused.
He did not let himself ponder on
where the adventure might lead. Per
haps he would recover his strength rap
idly enough to re-enlist and go back to
France. This was what he hoped for—
in spite of the fact that the surgeons on
the other side had not encouraged this
hope. , „
"They may have been mistaken,
he told himself fiercely. "I am sure
I will be well sooner than they thought.
If I cannot do what I want in the
world, I might better be out of it. In
that case I could wish the bullet had
got my heart instead of only a lung.
But I'm going to see this thing
Xhat was his watch-word these days.
He had occasional reminders that his
wound had been more serious than he
I had wanted to believe. Yet the doctors
had told him that if he was careful
he might eventually do a man's work."
"I know they did not think I would
get well soon enough to return to the
Service," he reflected grimly. "Well—
herhaps they were wrong! Here's hop
ing they were!"
He put on his hat. threw the heavy
overcoat over his arm, and, Avith his
gauntlets in his hand, ran downstairs
to the street.
As he strode up Lexington avenue,
he was indeed good to look at. The
color of his livery was becoming to his
fair skin and blue eyes. He was very
straight and broadshouldered and had
an air of distinction that made the be
holder marvel how a man of that stamp
came to be a chauffeur.
This marvel may have been in the
eyes of Norah, the parlor maid, when
she answered the chauffeur's ring at
the front door at 11 o'clock, but it
was speedily replaced by an expression
of admiration.
She had always wondered at the aris
tocratic bearing of the new man. She
had never noticed before how hand
some he was. Perhaps, she told her
self, she had never had a really good
look at him until now.
'•How Nice You Look."
"Good morning. Smith!" she greeted
him. dimpling into smiles. "I'll tell
Miss Leighton that you're here. Ex
cuse me.—but how nice you look in
your livery!"
DeLaine eyed her in astonishment.
This was the first time that Norah
had made a voluntary remark to him.
Until this instant It had not occurred
to him that she regarded him as one
of her own class.
A change came over her face as she
I noticed his silence. He saw this and
1 realized his mistake in time to check
any expression of resentment on her
-Oh —ah—yes. thank you, Norah !"
he rejoined. "Do you know. I forgot
my livery for the minute.—l really did?
And I did not know just what you were
talking about. I did not realize that
my clothes were receiving a compli
The girl grinned broadly. "Ah
quit your kiddln'!" she retorted. "As
if a good-looking young fellow ever
forgets the clothes he has on! They're
all so vain—men are—that it's a mis
take to tell 'em they look nice. But
your new togs quite took me by sur
prise. Cassidy—the man as was here
before you—never looked real swell in
his livery. But he was a bit older
than you and .not to make you vain.
I must say he hadn't the style you
"Ah yes I see I mean
thank you I" DeLaine stammered.
He was horribly embarrassed.- He
found it much more difficult to meet
this girl on her own ground as her
equal than to play the part of an in
ferior to his employers.
"Perhaps," he ventured now, trying
not to sow his discomfort, and with a
| sincere desire not to hurt Norah's
I feelings—"lt would be well to tell
Miss Lieighton that the car is here.
She may be waiting for it."

Life's Problems

j What is that something in us that
I makes us like certain things and dis-
I like others, that consciousness which
! makes us feel we can do this and
| cannot do something else which is as
j simple as A, B, C, to our neighbors?
j I, for instance, have an inner sense
! that I want to write. I seise a pen

i results. I look at her with awe and

If I try to trim a hat, it looks like

I know a man who makes a fortune
, with the same ease that an acrobat
turns a handspring. Sometimes he is
careless enough to lose a fortune ; then
he sets to work and makes another
one. If you ask him how he does it,
he looks at you pityingly and says:
"Nothing to it. Any idiot can make
i money."
Of course, we can talk learnedly ]
about "special aptitudes." or "the nat

training." or "some strong suggestion
impressed upon the plastic child mind."

Then you look at me triumphantly
as if to say: "Xow, what about it?"
