    " When a Girl Marries"
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problem of a Girl Wife
(Copyright. 1919, King Features
Syndicate, Inc.)
It was Carl Booth, who had taken
me to the recruiting meeting where, |
a year ago, I first saw my Jim. |
And now, just in time to save mc \
from actually hurting him, 1 rcc- I
ognized the man who had been my :
one pal in the city during all tno ]
lonely years before 1 found Jim. ;
1 leaped to my feet and held out j
both hands in greeting.
"Carl Booth!" 1 repeated. "Good ,
old Carl. This is jolly. And for a
whole minute I didn't know you. A
year has brought a mustache and j
has taken about twenty pounds," I ,
Carl blushed with joy—l suppose!
Nt having my hesitancy cleared up
and at the recognition that some of |
his too, too solid llesh had melted. ;
His clear, boyish skin went a shade
pinker and his twinkling hazel eyes
crinkled at the corners.
"As if you'd forget a pal—or cut ;
him," he said almost as if he were
defending me to some one.
When I presented hint to Vir
ginia she astonished me by being i
very gracious. With the sweetness ;
and instinctive courtesy that aio
just as sure to do the correct thing,
as the culture and good manners ,
of the new world into which I have \
gone since leaving the old one I
where I knew him, Carl now turned !
to Virginia:
"May we have our coffee with '
you, Mrs. Dalton? It's a treat to;
me to see Barbara Anne again- -1
and the girl who's with me will
love the chance to visit with her.
It's Daisy Condon. Anne. Remem
ber her from Haldane's?"
"Bring her right over," said Vir
ginia graciously—and then spoiled
it by adding, "I've just time to add
another of my sister's old friends
to my list and then 1 must leave
you to your reminiscences pud run
along to keep an engagement.
"That's the man who took me to
the recruiting meeting where 1 first
saw Jim. He's on the advertising
staff of Haldane's," I said when
Carl went to get his companion.
And 1 hated myself for feeling
forced to explain to Virginia.
"And one of the stenographers, i
I dare say." she replied carelessly, |
ignoring Jim's part in my narra- |
Then Carl returned with a slim, ;
colorless brunette, whom 1 remem- j
bered vaguely as a younger sister 1
of good old Kate's. Kate was the |
splendid friend whom I had liked- - j
and forgotten. Now, in a rush of i
remorse for the way I had neglected ;
her when my new world swept me j
from old moorings, 1 was partiou- I
larly cordial to the nlmost drab lie- I
tie grain of dust because she was j
Kate's sister.
In the moment before she left '
us, Virginia was very gracious—too I
gracious. I wondered if my new- j
old friends knew that she was con- j
descending. 1 fancied they both '
drew sighs of relief when she do- I
"And where's Kate?" I said cor- j
dially to clear the air.
Daisy Condon leaned forward, her I
eyes brimming and some inner spirit
lighting her former dullness as she I
spoke in a sweet, grave voice: I
"Kate's gone, Mrs. Harrison. |
Months ago. The 'flu.' She asked :
for you, and I tried to find you, but j
Mr. Haldane was out of town and
no one knew where to look for you j
since you weren't in the telephone
"Dear old Kate," 1 murmured
sadly. "How we do lose track here
in the big city! 1 called her once
or twice, but I never reached her.
And we weren't in the hook then

because we had a sub-let apart

"Kate was a wonder. Bet she's
a useful citizen in the beyond,"
I broke in Carl Booth with the warn.,
I kindly heartiness that 1 remem
bered so well now that it had swept
\ across my path again. "She'd be
j glad to have lier little sister know
I you."
| "If you have time," said Daisy
i Condon shyly.
| Carl's suggestion and the girl's
I self-effacing modesty made me more i
; than ever ashamed of the careles: -
| nets, the selfishness even, that had
J made me permit my new world to j
I absorb me so completely. And I i
j determined then and there that if !
j 1 could make it up to Kate's little !
I sister, neither the Harrison pride
, nor the Harrison world should pro-
I vent. Impulsively 1 acted on that I
i idea.
"This is a jolly reunion with old !
i pals." I said, including Daisy and i
| noticing how the least attention i
j made her drabness brighten to pink
; and flash to bronze. "But 1 BUp
! pose it must be short, since the .
workers of the world haven't much ;
j daytime to spare for us drones. !
I But why can't you two come up to ■
dinner to-night?"
"Oh!" gasped Daisy, leaning foi - :
i ward eagerly and looking at Cati, j
I not at me, as she replied, "I'd love I
I it—if we only could?"
"You can—you must—vott shall'.'
| I insisted, smiling at the girl with j
; the beginnings of real liking. She •
i seemed like a starved kitten placed i
j within pink-tongued distance of a j
I saucer of cream, and purring a!
polite "Meow —may 1?" beforej
touching it.
Carl's brown eyes wrestled with '
the problem for a minute, and his |
honest color heightened.
"Are you sure Mr. Harrison wouh' '
j care to have us?" he asked bluntly. >
1 read into his question a recog- !
] liition of the caste system, of the '
I social weight of the name Harrison, j
I and a little fear lest Jim be as po- !
litely superior as his sister had been, j
But loyalty, a homesickness for the I
j world-that-onee-had-been, and !
groat regret at the way 1 had nog- j
lected Kate swept mo on.
"My husband will be as happy to |
j meet my old friends as I've always
I been to meet his," I declared rash-
I ly, smiling reminiscently as I real
| ized how "liappy" I had been to
] meet some of Jim's friends.
| "All right, we'll be with you,"
j replied Carl —answering, as I real
ized at once—for both. Then to tl.e
| waiter: "Check, please."
i "Madame paid it on the way out,"
j replied the waiter, a trifle insolently.
That humiliated my old friend, as
j I could very well see. I promised j
J myself uneasily that running acroa.-, i
jme again should mean nothing
j worse than this momentary annoy
ance to good old Carl. But that
! very vow acknowledged my doubts.

I There is now to he seen in the |
American Museum of Natural His
tory in Central Park West, a heel i
I bone fifteen inches long and weigh- |
; ing twenty pounds, which is worth I

, than because of its enormous size, j
I It is a bit of petrified history as 1m- i

I ments of human grandeur,
i As you stand beside it, if you are i
! disposed to be thoughtful and have |
| a somewhat active imagination, you j
i feel very much as does the man who j
! looks up from the sun-baked sands j
I of Kgvpt into the worn face of the
| antique Sphinx. The Sphinx carries
i your mind back through some tens |
' of centuries to a departed type of i
human symbolism, the precise mean
ing, or purpose of which has been I
forgotten; the big heel bone in the j
■ museum conducts you backward
j through hundreds of milleniums to
I an extinct type of animal which pre
i ceded man on the earth, and seems
| to represent a discarded purpose of
j nature —a kind of rejected model,
thrown aside in the course of her ex
! periments with the mysterious forces
I of life.
This heel belonged to a megather
ium which once, evidently dwelt in
the neighborhood of what is now
New York City. Dr. Dedoux stepped
upon it. in the sands, while bathing
at Pong Branch. Its day was the
day of the glaciers, say one, or two,
or three hundred thousand years ago,
or perhaps some geologists would
make it a million years. The gla
' tiers were not always present; they
j came and went. There were inter-
I glacial periods, spread through the
glacial age, when the sunshine par-n
tially restored the former genial con
ditions. and when animals and plants
found for some thousands of years
on end, comfortable living conditions
in this part of the world. Then the
wonderful Winter would shut down
; again upon the planet, and the ice
would begin once more to grind the
1 rocky heads of the hills and to scoop
j out the bottoms of the valleys.
In one of the relatively sunny
periods, and perhaps recurrently in
! more than one, the megatheriums
came, creations of one of nature's
; nightmares, sloths in form— at least
> they have been called "ground sloths"
i —but elephantine in magnitude and
•' more than elephantine in weight and
solidity. Stupendous moving masses
of llesh and bone, "with thigh bones
two or three times as thick as those
; of the elephant," and having "front
feet about a yard long." The size i
1 of their hind feet is indicated by the

mastodons remained.
It is a curious fact that just at'
or before the time when man was
about to be brought forth, nature j
experimented in the production of;
mammals of the most prodigious I
j size, and then turned them all down I
and began to develop a relatively j
tiny, active creature that could live
in treetops, but not tear them down, !
into the prince of the animal king-)
ilom. Why did she not expand the j
brain of a megatherium, or one of I
its brother giants, into an organ of
mind, huge in proportion to the ani
mal magnitude of its bearer% One
might suspect that she was tempted
to venture in that direction from the
well-known cunning, and the some
times almost human intelligence,
of the elephant, which, with thej
possible exception of the dog and I
I the monkey, has, according to Ro
manes, "its higher mental faculties j
more advanced in their development I
than any other animal."
But, apparently, the necessary
reaction between brain cells and
body cells could not be brought
about in so unwieldy an animal, and
nature, if she ever did have other
intentions, Hnally perceived that a
lithe, elastic body, which could be
trained to walk erect, and two of
whose limbes could he released from
duty as mere locomotive apparatus,
and turned into arms furnished with
hands and fingers cf almost infinite
capacity for development, was the
best suited for the kind of evolution
which she, as the agent of infinite
power, was under obligation to bring
It is very impressive while look
ing at that old heel bone, to reflect j
that it was moving about with the!
foot of its gigantic owner in the j
Jersey sunshine at a time when man's i
first morning about to dawn upon I
the earth, was faintly streaking the
Eastern sky of time.
Curiously enough Dr. Dedoux's ,
| bare foot stumbled upon two other
hard substances projecting from the
Dong Branch sands at the same time
when he found the heel bone of the
megatherium. One was a fragment
of a mastodon's bone and the other
the skull of a walrus.

You never knew -f Rheumatism

But why be satisfied with tem

manent relief within your reach?
Science has proven that Rheumatism
