Leaving Phoebe alone to accus
tom herself to the reality of the
bad dream she was not to escape I
waking or sleeping, I went out to ,
greet the Cosbys.
Valerie's smooth complacency |
had never struck me more vividly. |
Her costume of rich henna-colored
tri-colette clung to her lithe figure i
like a caress and, every proud i
glance with which Lane mantled hot j
was a caress too. She radiated well- '
being. Life seemed going out of ,
its way to please her. And under ;
her creamy smoothness of exterior :
I sensed the ruthless egotism that
was making life go out of its way
to please her.
"We've come to teach you j
bridge," rumbled the big brown
bear. "Maybe since Jim's out little
sister-in-law would make a fourth."
"She's lying down. Bad head
ache," I explained, fierce to protect ,
Phoebe. i
"Too bad." yawned Vale. 'She
looks delicate. Subject to such j
"Who looks delicate? demanded
Jim's voice from the doorway.
"Oh, Jimmte—how nice!" cried <
Val in a voice that spread honey j
over the words. We didn't hear j
you come in. What is home with- :
out our Jimmie?"
Jim went over and shook the|
hand she held up almost as if she
expected it to be kissed. Then he I
wrung the brown bear's heavy paw. j
"This is great, Cosby. You're
the very man I want to see. Sup- j
pose we trot back to my den and
have a business chat if the girls j
don't mind.
As he spoke Jim laid his hand
rightly on my shoulder. It lasted
only a second, but it was a dear
caress, for i.t bespoke understand
Val flashed a glance and a pout
at Jim.

i though I knew he'd been dying to

I came in.
"She's' lying down. Headache,'
I repeated. "I'd better go make
| sure the door between the den and
our bedroom is shut. You might
disturb her."
"Better stay here and discuss your
old business," said Val, selecting
] a cigarette carefully from a gold
i case at her wrist. "Give us a light,

pected me to understand.
| "Then it was Phoebe you called
| delicate?" he asked as if he were
! thinking aloud.
"Oh. just growing. Like all
youngsters at sixteen or so. A bit
j weedy," laughed kindly.
For a fraction of a second Jim's
eyes met mine again, but he didn't
correct the big brown hear and
tell him Phoebe was nearly eigh
teen. Instead he swung away from
the subject.

You girls had better haul out your

puff on this—The firm of Harrison
West and Company goes out of com
mission to-morrow."
Lane Cosby lighten his cigar
with methodical calmness before
he replied to the words that had
set my heart to thumping.
"Oh, West's dead wood, and I'm
tired of carrying him," replied
Jim. "He doesn't bring in a hun
dred dollars' worth of business a
week .
"Practical Jimmie!" smiled Val,
approvingly, but Jim went on with
out noticing her:
"He put over a couple of deals
that were a little unsatisfactory.
Anne was wise to him from the
jump, and we straightened things
out with no loss to anyone. But
he might cost me a big customer
some day. And as he appears un
likely to bring in any substitute
'big customers' "
Jim left his sentence unfinished
as if he considered the matter
clearly explained. I smiled to my
self at the way he hadn't told a
thing. Of course an avalanche of
questions would follow. I got the
surprise of my life when, after a
puff or two of his own. Lane
Cosby leaned forward and said with
slow emphasis:
"All right, boy, I'll take your
word for it. Need any financing.
Is twenty thousand any good to
you ?"
"Thanks, Cosby. Your confi
dence in my judgment was ail I
needed —and I got it," replied Jim
warmly. "I've money in the bank
and credit I haven't stretched.
But I don't need much coin for
this deal. West is buying It is
original stock back from me and
I'm not taking over much but the
office and the good-will of the

"Looks as if you made pretty
shrewd terms," said Lane Cosby
in a tone of admiration. "Pretty

I little lady. So you kick West out
I of the firm and go it on your own.
That's the end of West. I'm bet
"Oh, Jim!" cried a voice from
the doorway. "The end of West!
What does that mean?"
It was Phoebe.
"That's what he said, little lady,"
cried Lane Cosby heartily and
unsuspectingly. "Dick West's out
of the firm, down and out, maybe,"
' he chuckled.
"Evening, Miss Harrison." said
Valerie creamily and narrowing
her eyes a little as she fixed them
on Phoebe. "Poor Mr. West evi-

Bullets Penetrated
O'Connell Monument
During Easter Fracas
Dublin, July 2. Examination
has just revealed that in the shoot
ing which took place in the streets
of Dublin Easter week in 1918, the
great O'Connell monument was
penetrated by eight or nine bdllets.
A proposal has been made that
the damage could be repaired. The
city engineer, however, has advised
that the bullet holes do not involve
any risk to the monument, arc in
visible unless attention is specially
drawn to them, and In the future
will have a considerable historical
interest. Accordingly, the corpora
tion has decided that the monument
I shall remain as it is.

A woman writes mc she is thirty
1 years old, and the same man has
been paying her "devoted attention"
| since she was nineteen, and yet has
; never said a word about marriage.
She says everyone thinks they are
I engaged, and her plight is so humil
| iating that she fosters that belief,
| nevertheless he has taken pains on
1 two or three occasions to tell her
; explicitly that he "is not a marry
ing man."
j In spite of everything she loves
' him devotedly and says: "If I give
| him up, I shall only be'spiting my
i self; with little or no difficulty he
| could get another girl to waste
j youth and opportunity on him as I
I have done, and where could I look
[ for companionship now?"
| Thero is nothing new about this
i situation, this conflict between a
tender-hearted woman with a big
capacity for loving and a man who
prefers the little thing he calls his
"freedom" to the deep realities of
life. And the man wins, and the
woman suffers, and the world scoffs.
There is really very little advice
to be given to this correspondent;
with pitiless clarity she sums up her
own case: "He would have no diffi
culty in getting another girl to
waste youth and opportunity on
him as I have done, and where could
I look for companionship now?"
Too many women assume, as the
I writer of this letter assumes, that
the whole matter rests with the
man. She evidently took this point
of view from the beginning, with
disastrous results to herself. The
man set the pace, and she followed
as best she could; now she realizes
that if she attempts to change
things she may lose the frail hold
she still has over him.
In her place I'd drop him, charge
the time up to experimental profit
and loss, and start life all over
again. Psychologists arc agreed, I
believe, that thirty is a woman's
most attractive age. So this young
woman, if she would only permit
herself to realize it, has all the best
years ~oT life still before her.
And why should she go on cling

Tho affair, in its way, might
really be reckoned as an asset, for
if a burnt child dreads fire, cer
tainly the victim of a twelve-year
old love affair would never endure
a second stand-still wooing.
She'd Know All the Symptoms
The tragic dreariness of one of
those long-drawn-out near-engage
ments would have no charm for
her a second time. She would be
too wise, too experienced, not to
recognize ali the symptoms of de
lay, caution and dodging that marks

these tactics on the spot.

her chair and try something else.
But no, from her letter she seems
to be afraid of life and she spends
hours in brooding over the ques
j tion: "Are all men alike?"
I hasten to assure her they are
not; she has only to look around
with unprejudiced eyes to see that
the man she describes is an excep
tion—an exception representing all
the vices of prolonged bachelor
hood. And he presents a warning
to all young men. even if they don't
love and marry before they are
thirty, they can at least keep
human and avoid becoming worship
pers of their selfish ease.

means typical, thank heavon, but

Thankful In the Dong Itun
My own belief is that there can
only be a minority of men who
could be so unpleasantly practical
,in their love affairs as this cold
| blooded, long-distance sutor. And
j I honestly believe if my corre
| spondent summons sufficient cour
j age to "forget him" she will be de
voutly thankful in the long run.
This' type of standstill wooing
j was far more prevalent a genera
tion or so ago than it is at the
j present time, when women plan
their own lives and make their own
decisions, and decline to be shoved
about life's chessboard at the whim
of any player.
The idea that a woman may wait
ten or fifteen years, passively and
' sweetly, while a man makes up his
inind whether or not he even wishes
to become engaged to her. is cer
tainly anythtng but modern. A
woman who docs not take the situa
tion into her own capable hands
long before the end of any such
protracted period invites tragedy,
though no one could be cruel enough
to say that she deserves it.
A normal woman wants more
than the bi-weekly visits of a cau
tious member of the "Gentlemen's
Protective Association." And if she
decides to forfeit the big experi
ences of life—love and motherhood
—it ought to result from her deci
sion and not his.

Mexico City, July 2. —A Mexican
government official just returned
from the United States says that
several largo manufacturers of farm
machinery in the United States have
decided to establish branch olilces

and tractors were mentioned as two
of the commodities that will meet
with readiest sale and adaptation in
the republic.
In a Pacific coast town they tell of
a political leader who once flourish
ed there, and who, knowing the
financial necessities of one of his
most valuable workers, sent him a
small portfolio, bound like a book,
among the leaves of which were de
posited bank notes to the amount of
several thousand dollars.
'And how did you like the new
book I sent you?"
"A fine work!" exclaimed the other
"I read it with great interest; so
great, indeed, that I await the sec
ond volume with impatience."
The politician smiled, and when
the worker's birthday came round
ho presented him with another
portfolio, similar in every respect to
the first, but with these words en
graved upon it:

umes."—Cartoons Magazine.
