When Carlotta and I were ready

that I signed because I didn t have
the actual money to pay. ■
But I flourished several bills of .
large denomination right under he
nose, and explained that l wa^ led
the cash because one of the smart
shoe shops where 1 hadn t a ha,Lgc
was having its semi-annual sale,
our luncheon ended with dttle com
on places and let us down comfort
ably from the emotional and excit
ing discussion we'd been having.
Then I hurried over to the shoe
store and had a perfect orgy of
i.uying. I've always loved being well
shod, and I felt it was wise to lay
in a big supply of pretty shoes at
this sale. So I got gray suede ox
fords, a pair of pretty brown pumps,
some white sport, shoes and two
pairs of duncing slippers, one black
satin and one pair of white brocade.
"Now, you ought to have some
patent leather pumps with big cut
steel buckles," suggested the clerk.
"Are they great bargains?" I
asked, dallying with temptation.
"I should say so. They'll be fifty
per cent, higher within six months,"
said the clerk so convincingly that

When it came to buckles, I hesi
tated for a moment or two.
"But they'll last a lifetime," said
the clerk, seeing my hesitancy.
So I felt I had a right to indulge.
And when he suggested stockings, 1
realized that I might as well gel
them here to make sure of having
the right match for the colored
"Now," the name and address,
please," smiled the cjerk pleasantly
when I had selected several pairs
of stockings.
I gave it to him and opened my
purse to pay.
"One hundred and twenty dollars, j
please," said the man.
I almost tumbled off the bench.
"But I thought you advertised sale
shoes at $3.85 a pair." I protested
as quietly as I could.
"But I haven't been showing you
sale shoes," said the clerjc. "You;
wouldn't care for them. And, be
sides, they come in the wider size...; |
I couldn't fit you. These are ex- j
cellent values you have selected i
and very reasonable, too. Nothing ,
over sixteen dollars. Really, to get
six pairs of slippers, buckles and I
hosiery at such a small figure is j
like having a little bargain sale of !
your own when you consider how j
much higher things are going." i
I laughed, trying to pretend X was
at ease.
"Well, of course, if they're not
sale shoes, I'll Just take the ones
I need and wait till another time
for the stockings," I said. "As a
matter of fact, that's what I'll have
to do, for I haven't the money for ]
all my purchases."
Why not send them C. O. D. —or, j
better still, charge them?" sug- |
gested the clerk. "Of course, no
one carries so much cash. But
really you can't afford to let such
values go."
"We've no account here," I con-

I fessed.
i "Why not open one? Let me

| he will be delighted to take care of
i you, Mrs. Harrison," said the clerk,
• iinally referring to the slip on
' which he had just written my name
J and address.
Then he want darting off to
carry out his idea. It seemed a
! wise one. I had bought nothing I
j wouldn't need within the next year.
I and it certainly would be silly to
j waste the time I had spent in try
ing on and selecting the shoes.
So when the floor manager came
with his little book and asked lor
my husband's business address and
bank I was well pleased with the i
afternoon's work.
"Now, madame, will you give me
j two or three places where you al
ready have charge accounts?"
"Wickhams," I said carelessly,
sure of the effect that would pro
duce. Then I added a string of
shops and ended with the smartest
of hotels where we were in thj
habit of signing checks.
The floor manager bowed ob
"You will get your purchases in
the morning, Mrs. Harrison." Then
J he turned to the clerk, "Fit Mrs.
! Harrison to one of the new pairs
j of shoes and keep her own to put
! in first-class condition as a token of
| our good will. New laces, Mrs. Har
j rison; heels straightened, shoes poi
| ished. We'll be delighted to servj
i you if you will just choose which
| pair of our slippers you'll honor us
by wearing right out of the store. '
As I walked out of the shop fif
teen minutes later, shod in the
stunning new patent leather pumps
with their resplendent steel buckles,
I had the most complete sense of
well-being Jim's success has
brought me so far. Evidently lam

the avenue insisted on trusting me
to wear the costliest of my pur

self proudly, "are on their way back
to the position that belongs to then.
—and I am a Harrison."
Then, as I strutted up the avenue
to get my little car and call for
Jim a voice hailed me—faintly at
first, then loudly, jovially, insist
"Barbara Anne—Barbara Anne

Scientific Discussions
by Garrett P. Serviss !
"God Almighty first planted a gar
den," says Lord Bacon in his fam
ous "Essays," and he adds that gar
dening is "the purest of human
I pleasures."
It is to be hoped that some at
I least of those who, at the call of
I the Government two summers ago,
] planted "war gardens" will now
continue to plant gardens for their
own pleasure. If you do not wish
to raise vegetables, then raise flow
Indeed, it was of ornamental
gardens, or "flower gardens," that
Bacon wrote, and the fact that so
philosophical a thinker as he was
gave so much serious attention to
what we now call the "aesthetic"
side of life, the side concerned with
the appreciation and cultivation of
beauty, ought to encourage every
body to develop that higher part
of this nature which is above ordin
ary utilitarianism.
Bacon was very brief in his es
say on gardens, as in all his es
says. It was his method to com
press a multitude of thoughts and
suggestions into a little space, and
the compression is so great that
sometimes a single sentence of his
writing expands, while the reader
ponders upon it, as wonderfully as
the endless colored ribbon that the !
prestidigitateur draws from a pellet
behind his teeth until it lies in a
rainbow heap as high as his chin.
"The breath of flowers," says
Bacon, "is far sweeter in the air, (
where it comes and goes like the
warbling of music, than in the
hand; therefore nothing is more
fit for that delight than to know ■
what be the flowers and plants that
do best perfume the air."
He gives a list of them with their
seasons, and when you read what
I am now going to quote it will be
strange if your imagination does
not present you with a picture of the
great philosopher, in his quaint .
Elizabethan clothes, treading upon
a carpet of flowers and expanding
his nostrils to catch their sweet
"Those flowers which perfume the
air most delightfully, not passed by
as the rest, but being trodden upon
and crushed, are three; that is bur
net, wild thyme and water-mints.
Therefore you are to set whole al
leys of them, to have the pleasure
when you walk or tread."
Given the perfumed atmosphere
| of a garden, other consequent de
| lights follow, which Bacon did not
mention, though he must have
; known and appreciated them. They
I are voices of birds and insects
drawn to the flowers, and the ani
i mated spectacle of ceaselessly mov
ing and changing colors and forms
due to the constant presence of
throngs of the jewelled inhabitants
of the air.
What is more pleasure-giving and
! thought-inspiring that the sight of
i the "burly, dozing humble bee," as
I yellow with pollen as an argosy
j of the golden age of adventure,
] rummaging deep in the corolla of
I a flower, and buzzing from one rich
j cup to another, a true "freebooter"
lof the atmosphere? It is worth
while to plant a little garden simply
to draw to it these bass-viol players
of the insect world.
But, indeed, a garden is a me
tropolis for insects. As the city
I is the best place to study human
i nature, because there you can find
i an abundance of varied specimens,
. following- their characteristic- oc
cupations and revealing their pe
[ culiarities under the stimulus of
I many-sided contact, so the garden
j presents you with an omnium
i gatherum of insect species, where
lit is both easy and interesting to,
j distinguish between the evil doers
j on one hand, and the innocents and
benefactors on the other.
As their tribes pass before you,
| you should consider them philo
! sophically, as Bacon would have
| done. If there are two or three
| ant-hills of different species in your
' garden they will afford you • the
I materials for writing an Iliad and
lan Odyssey—which, perhaps, you
! had better keep for your own ex
i elusive reading, because there are
i more Troys than Homers.
I Gardens are harbors for the most
! beautiful butterflies, which come
like fairy-painted ships to visit them.
The alleys are avenues that some
times glitter with processions of
brilliant-winged beetles, so ex
t quisitely colored and polished that
'• they seem like living jewels. Blue
• birds, brown birds, red birds and
. singing birds love a garden if it has
■* a few brancjiy trees overhanging
the flowers. And when the gem of
the animal creation, the ruby,
throated humming bird, visits your
garden you will feel repaid for all
the money and time and labor it
has cost, leaving you the beauty of
the flowers as pure profit.

Advice to the Lovelorn
About a year ago on our way to
New A ork, my brother and I encoun- '
tered a regiment of soldiers due for
I overseas. My brother gave them some
% re 5 s and b °oks. and we talked
with them. One in particular I liked
\ery much. He was well mannered
and a perfect gentleman. He asked
me wouldn't I write. We kept up a
correspondence for ten months. When
ho came home I met him with some
flowers and he called once, and said
he liked me very much. Previous to
coming" home he was real serious irt
his letters. But I said perhaps when
we meet again we will both change
our minds. He even wrote from the
camp that lie liked me lhore than he
thought. When mustered out he wrote
lie had to go home, but would return
the next week. His home is in New
Hampshire. I haven't seen him since.
That is three months ago. He writes
me after neglecting me for six weeks
that if I forgive him he will come
down to see mesoon and explkin
everything. I wrote a very nice letter,
saying I would. Kindly tell me what
you would do if you were I. I think
a great deal of him because he is far
from the ordinary. ANXIOUS.
I fear you have expected too much
from this accidental pleasant friend
ship. It would be unwise to make any
further advance toward this young
man or to think of him in the light I
of a lover unless he should unmis
tagably prove himself to be one.
Several months ago I met a girl
for the first time and I asked her if
she would go out with me. but she
refused, saying that her parents
would not allow her.
Now. Miss Fairfax, I know that
the only possible way for us to con
tinue our friendship would be for me
to become acquainted with her par
ents. As she shows no signs of invit
ing me to her home do you think it
would bo proper for me to suggest it
to her? Several times I have met her
in church, but being refused once I
would not ask her again if she will go
out with me. I am very much inter
ested in her.
F. F. P.
I think it would be perfectly proper
for you to ask the young lady if you
may call on her, and I wish you the
best of luck.
