" When a Girl Harries"
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problem of a Girl Wife
(Copyright, 1919, Star Feature
Syndicate, Inc.)
For a time after Phoebe departed
'or the luncheon to which Val had
neglected to invite me, I wandered
about restlessly trying to find some
thing with which to occupy myself.
But the day stretched ahead blank
and empty. I was delighted when
;he 'phone rang. Answering it gave
me something to do, even if I got
there only to be told "No one on the
line now." That didn't happen,
however. Instead Pat's voice came
aver the wire.
"Anne, will you drop everything
you're doing and meet me for
lunch? He asked so anxiously that
ordinarily I'd have acquiesced at
once, but now my raw feelings made
me parley with him.
"Can't you get anyone else? Is
that why you ask me to lunch at
the eleventh hour?
"Come now, Alanna. what ruf
fled the fine plumuge of you?"
coaxed Pat at his most Irish. "It s
not the eleventh hour, but the lunch
hour—just one. I've been waiting
for young Neal to get out of the
office so I could call you. Knowing
how the lad adores you, I was sure
he'd insist on being invited too, and
I wanted to see you alone. Will you
be blaming me for that?"
"You're balm to a wounded spirit.
Pat," I replied, smiling in spite of
myself-. , , _ .
"Then you'll come?" asked lat
with eagerness j_hat was beyond
Of course, I went.
I found Pat striding up and down
the restaurant corridor, looking
startlingly haggard, almost ill. His
eyes seemed deeper-set than ever
and the lines of his mouth were
rugged. I made no comment, suf
fering him to greet me in common
place fashion and lead me to the
table he had selected.
That things were sadly amiss with
Pat I gathered from the fact that
instead of ordering with the easy
grace so characteristic of him, he
asked me uneasily what I wanted
and didn't seem able to make up
his mind about his food. At last we
got the needed preliminaries out of
the way, and as we settled back to
wait for our order, Pat burst out
"Anne, something's got to be done
about that Harrison place. I can't
have it like this much longer. The
transfer's all made—only waiting
for her signature. Some one's got
to bring her to her senses."
"Yes," I inquired politely." And
Pat's eyes twinkled. I liked htm
for the understanding grin in the

"Meaning you don't fancy the
job?" he asked.
"Meaning I'm not \ip to it." I be
gan, and then my blood froze in my
veins and my voice stuck in my
throat, for marching into the res
taurant with the everpresent Shel

came in she wouldn't have carried
the thing through so scornfully. But

Virginia must see us. One quick,
scornful glance and then, fussing
audibly about the draft, Virginia
changed places with Sheldon so that
she sat with her back to us. That
she should turn away like this and
yet remain in the restaurant must
have seemed a deadly insult to Pat.
He changed color, but made no com
As if by mutual consent, we raced
through our lunch and got out of
the place. And then, also as if we
had planned it. we stepped into a
taxi and rolled off toward the park.
After a moment or two, Pat spoke
in a grim tone to match the lines
about his mouth.
"I'm going to clear out of here
for a while, Anne. Young Neal is
well ahle to run the whole works.
And if he strikes any snags. Car
lotta will steer him out of shoal
water. I need—a vacation."
"Where are you going?" I asked,
as if that were the main point at
"One of my clubs has a lodge up
North. If I get company. T may go
for a fishing trip," he replied, evad
ing a direct answer and driving on
to what was in his mind. "I've
started work on the Old Place,
Anne. T wonder if you'll run out
now and again and see that every
thing's ship-shape. I'll withdraw
that deal I made out to Virginia.
It's never been recorded—couldn't
be without her signature. When T
come hack I'll talk it over with
Jimmie. T know he once wanted
the place, and if he still cares to
buy, I'll let him have it for what
I paid."
"Of course, we want it, but we
won't talk about buying it now.
And remember this, you nice, gen
erous boy: if we take it off your
hands, we'll include the improve
ments in the price," I replied, feel
ing as if I ought to pull poor Pat's
head down on my shoulder and tell
him to cry'it out.
"You'll get it for what I paid, or
not at all. I had a lot of fun plan
ning the improvements," replied

Pat, turning his face away from me
so that I remarked the tense line of
his Jaw. "Say my good-byes to
Jimmie. It may be a long time till
we see each other again. I'm grate

"Pat Dalton!" I cried with sud

Then, almost as I had known he
would, Pat turned to me with the
hopeless expression I had seen Vir
ginia wear a few weeks before and
spoke almost the very words she
had used. Only now it was hopeless
and I had no answer, no argument.
For this is what Pat said:
"There's one thing I can give her.
There's one gift she can't refuse,
and that's her freedom. I'm going
to Reno, Anne."

Memorial Park Addition —The

By Virginia Terhune Van de Water
(Copyright, 1919, Star Company) i
By a coincidence, Samuel Leigh
ton met Walter Jefferson on his !
way uptown that afternoon.
Incensed as he was by his ex
chauffeur's behavior, he felt sud
denly indignant with Jefferson. Man
is an unreasonable creature, and
Leighton had a swift desire to vent
his irritation upon the first person
he met. Moreover Jefferson was in- j
directly concerned with the matter j
that had destroyed his equanimity !
—for had he not informed Helen i
Goddard that he was going to "in- i
vestigate" Smith's past?
"Good afternoon!" Jefferson
greeted the older man unbanely. "I j
am just back from Baltimore."
"So 1 infer," was the blunt re
joinder. "I tried to call you up
during your absence."
"Ah?" Jefferson's expression in- I
dicated interest. "Was there any- j
thing especial you wanted to say?" i
"There was—but there is not
now —except," he added, "that I
am at present without a chauffeur
—thanks to the inability of people
in general to mind their own af
Walter Jefferson gasped. Had
Smith then slipped away before he
could find out who he was?"
"Indeed!" he explained. "I am
sorry. To tell the truth, I had
hoped in a few days to gave you a
little information about this man.
I know his name is not 'Smith.' "
"And what if it is not?" Leigh
ton burst forth, raising his voice to
make himself heard above the roar |
of the subway. "Whose business is
that, pray?"
A Change of Manner.
Walter Jefferson had always re
garded this elderly gentleman as
a mild and courteous individual—
yet here he was challenging him in
a way that astounded him.
He tried to laugh. "Why," he
admitted, "it is nobody's business
—in a way—of course, but it so 1
happens that I met that chap
some years ago at the house of a
cousin of mine. Unfortunately she
was not at home when I was down
in Baltimore, so I could not get
into touch with her as I hope to
do later—for she expects to be in
New York shortly. I beg you to
believe, however, that my chief
concern in this matter was that I
was afraid this fellow might prove
as dishonest as the disappearance
of a piece of your daughter's jew
elry would lead one to suspect."
"My daughter's jewelry!" Leigh
ton exclaimed. "Did she mention
its disappearance to you?"
"No, indeed," Jefferson hastened
to reply.
"Then who told you about it?"
The pair were holding to straps
in the crowded express and the
lurching of the train brought the
older man's face almost in collision
with Jefferson's. The young man
felt awkward and ridiculous.
"I—well —Mr. Leighton—l can
not say jupt now—but I surely un
derstood that"
"Well, Just understand something
else now!" Samuel Leighton ad
vised harshly. "The piece of jewel-

"I don't know when X have been as
embarrassed as I was last night,'"
said Mrs. Greenly, as she and Mrs.
Gordon sat knitting on the cool, awn
inged porch.
"Why. what happened?" replied her
friend with interest.
"Well," she said, "you know 1 al
ways have a rather makeshift dinner
on Monday nights. Everything is
upset with the washing, and I don't
go to much trouble. Well, last night
Bob came home early, and brought
a business friend to dinner."
"Isn't that like a man?" said Mrs.
Gordon sympathetically.
"And," continued Mrs. Greenly, "I
was having a cold supper so I
thought the best thing to do was to
have a nice dessert to save the situ
ation, so I made a cornstarch pud
ding. You should have seen it
lumpy and thip I simply couldn't
serve it. I had to serve stewed fruit.
My dear, I'll never get over it.'
"Didn't you have any Puddine?"'
asked Mrs. Gordon.
"I've never used it," she replied,
"what is it like?"
"It's a most wonderful dessert
nothing uncertain anoiit it like a
cornstarch pudding. Puddine always
turns out right."
"How do you prepare it? said Mrs.
Greenly with interest.
"All you need do is to add milk,
either fresh or condensed, and sugar,
boil for three mlnur.es, pour into a
mold and then after it cools, you have
a nice creamy mound of the most
luscious rich dessert vou ever tasted."
"It sounds lovely," said her friend,
"It's that and more," continued
Mrs. Gordon enthusiastically. "You
can get it in most any flavor
chocoTate, rose, vunilla, orange, lemon
and Puddine is so pure and whole
some you can let the children have
as much of it as they want."
"Is it expensive?" asked Mrs.
"Expensive! I should say not. One
15c box will serve 15 people. And
you can make all sorts of things with
it rich pie and cake fillings and
delicious ice cream, smooth and vel
Some time later, the two friends

"As to Smith, my chauffeur —
when I engaged him I knew all
about him. I am a man of the
world and have the sense to make
sure of the character of a person
before I employ him. If you wish
to satisfy your curiosity on this
matter, Mr. Jefferson, I can supply
you with the name and address of

sir," Walter stammered—what ob

Still More Angry.
He, too. was angry now, and his
speech showed it.
"I'm blest if I know!" was the
sharp rejoinder. "But apparently
you thought it worth while until
this minute. As Smith has left
my employ of his own volition, I
have nothing more to say about
him or his affairs one way or the
