    " When a Girl "
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problem of a Girl Wife
[Copyright, 1919, Star Feature

The message from Uncle Ned
didn't come until I had finished my
solitary meal, and then it was not
directly from him, but a second
hand affair from someone who re
ported over the wire:
"Mr. Pettingill says he will call
Mr. Harrison first thing in the
morning and wants him to be
"Ready for what?" I asked with
natural curiosity.
"Can't say, ma'am," was the la
conic reply. "That's all Mr. Pet
tingill said. That ho wanted Mr.
Harrison to be ready."
Again came the consciousness
that I was—in the very nature of
things—shut out from most of Jim's
business life. It made me realize
how little Jim needed me in com
parison to my growing need of him.
"A woman's only in the way half
the time," I said to myself sadly.
"When it comes to settling things
with Pat, Jim can do better, with
out me. Even his homely secre
tary, Miss Nevins, is in his confi
dence on a lot of matters he
wouldn't dream of talking over
with me. And now he's drifting in
to some sort of intimacy with
Uncle Ned in which I can't
As I was wondering if in all the
world there was another woman
who felt as useless and as left out
in the cold, Hedwig came to an
nounce that Miss Phoebe and Mr.
Neal had run in for a minute.
"My blessed Neal!" I said to my
self, happy at this interruption of
my dull evening. And I hurried
out to greet my guests.
Probably there was a shade more

1 warmth in the hue I gave my bo
loved brother than in the kiss I had
for Phoebe. I hadn't forgotten the
lunch at Val's from which I was
omitted, and I suppose I was just
us much miffed at Phoebe for go
ing without me as I was at Val
for failing to ask me. Anyway,
Neal must have sensed the shades
and degrees in my manner, for he
promptly flung a protective arm
about Phoebe as he cried with boy
ish pride:
"Doesn't my Phoebekins look
great, Anne? We've got a new play
of wearing our hair, we have. And
it made a large-sized hit at the
party to-day. Take off your hat,
honey-girl, and show Anne."
Phoebe giggled and removed her
hat, displaying hair drawn back
from her forehead and scalloped
out over her cheeks in a mode I
detest, but which certainly becomes
Phoebe and makes her pansy-face
look more like a baby's than ever.
"If you aren't cunning!" I ex
claimed, forcing myself to add, "I'll
bet you were the chief charmer of
the luncheon. Who was there,
"Just Mrs. Cosby and two ador
able girls named Willoughby. They
are twins, daughters of someone
, she knew at home. They've come
on to try for a place on the con
cert stage and Mrs. Pettingill,
whom Mrs. Cosby says you know
very well, is chaperoning them."
"Wasn't Aunt Molly Pettingill
there?" I asked.
"No. Mrs. Cosby said it was a
'kid party,' and that she herself
didn't belong." giggled Phoebe.
1 felt greatly relieved.
"We came in to see about an
other party," broke in Neal, "and
then we'll have to run along. Got
tickets for one of the Summer
"Does Virginia know you're out?"
I asked.
"She's almost decent about Neal,"
replied Phoebe bitterly. "At least
she bids him the time of day when
she passes him in the apartment.
Ever since that dreadful night here
she seems aware that Neal's a per
son—l suppose it was because be
made me go home with her and
treated her as politely as if she
weren't behaving like a fiend."
"A fiend —" I broke in. "Jim
calls her that too."
"A fiend," repeated Neal impa
tiently. "Cant any of you see she's
eating her heart out? She looks
more like a ghost. But down to
business, ladies. To-morrow night's
a very important occasibn. To
morrow being—though you pay so
little attention to it, Mrs. Harri
son—my dear sister Babbsie's birth
day. So Miss Phoebe and I have in
vite yoU to the swellest dinner the
town affords. Evening togs and
all—and afterwards a look-in at any
show you want to see. Maybe
we'd better consult Jim about that.
Tastes differ, you know."
"How darling of you," I cried.
"I didn't think a soul but Jim
would remember my birthday—and
he gave me my present weeks ago,
but I've not worn it until to-night,
the eve of my day—"
I held out the hand on which
my pearl ring nestled, and I got
enough praise and admiration to
suit me. But then Neal insisted on
consulting Jim about what show
we'd see, and so I had to answer

I the question I was trying to evade,
though I hardly knew why.
"He's out—on business," I said.
Phoebe tossed her head. Almost
it seemed that I'd anticipated her
doing this and had been trying to
save myself from it. And when
she spoke, I fancied I'd known all
along what she was going to say.
"Out on business! My Neal isn't
going to leave me all alone even
ings while he transacts horrid old
business. For if he has to work
I' mgoing to share, aren't I,
"Surest thing you know!" replied
Neal—for once unconscious of me
and my feelings.
Then they ran along, leaving me
feeling more alone than ever. As
I set about trying to read or sew
or do something to pass the hours,

In spite of Desiree's outburst, Mrs.
Duffleld felt quite complacent after
her niece's departure.
Not only had she offered to set
matters right with Helen, but she
had a self-congratulatory sensation
when she appreciated that she had
not let slip to Desiree the fact that
Smith was going under an assumed
Really, the widow reflected, com
fortably settling down in her arm
chair, Smith could not be quite
trustworthy if he were ashmed to
use his own name. After all, per
haps, it was just as well that Jeffer
son was going to make inquires as
to his indentity. She did hope that
she would be imformed of the out
come of his investagations.
Meanwhile Desiree Leighton
walked slowly home, her min.l oc
cupied with something her aunt had
said. It was Mrs. Duffield's remind
er that, "after all, Smith was just a
The girl had been so penitent for
her outburst of anger to her elderly
relative that she held in check the
protest she longer to utter. 1 et,
if she had spoken, she could not
have denied the matron's assertion,
Smith was "just a chauffeur."
Desiree's sense of justice rebelled
at the suggestion of snobbishness
in that statement. A chauffeur
could be an educated gentleman
Just as well as his employer could.
Something told her that David
Smith's character, ideals, principles,
were as high as—if not higher
than—those of any man she knew.
She compared him mentally. with
Walter Jefferson, and her lip curled
"He is not to be mentioned it? the
same class with that busybody!" she
Self Analysis
But when she analyzed her feel
ings she had to admit that it was
Smith himself —not his breeding
manners or looks—that held her
loyalty. Here she stopped afraid
to let herself think further. She
reflected with a thrill or anticipa
tion that to-morrow she would see
the object of her recent discussion
with Mrs. Duffleld.
It was after dinner that her
father disabused her of this belief.
He had been unusually tactiturn
during the evening meal —a fsyit
that his daughter observed without
comment. Something had doubtless
gone wrong at the office. Tactfully
she tried to draw his thougrts from
his worries, chating of anything
except his business and the topic
that was uppermost in her mind.
An instinct to conceal her owu feel
ings prompted her to avoid this.
Therefore she experienced a sud
den shock when her father intro
duced the subject she wished to
Coffee had been brought into the
drawing-room after dinner. She
was sipping the steaming beverage
when her parent announced abruptly
—"Smith has left."
She started, and some of the
coffee splashed from her cup, run

front of her dainty gown. She set
the cup down haistly, and, catching

Samuel Leighton frowned.
"Sentimentalism again, my dear!
1 suppose 1 may judge of what is
the correct word. I mean what I
say. Smith told me he would stay
with me for the remainder of the
week. Then-—probably because he
resented our-my-suspicions, of
him he went back on his word."
"What reason did he give." The
question was very low.
That he had been called away,
the same reason he gave the last
time he threatened to go. His pride
is hurt that's it. I don't believe he
had to leave town at all."
"f do."
"I do," the girl repeated bravely.
"Snr.th wojild not lie to you."
The man made an impatient move
ment. "It so happens, my child,
that you know nothir.-g about it.
i The fellow .is proud, no doubt, and I
cannot blame him for that, but he
also has an infernal temper. And
that's why he left to get even with
me. But he bit off his nose to spite
his face. I paid him up to two days
ago. He was in such a temper that
he did not stop to take his extra
two days' pay, nor the money I
offered him for his work as butler
here the other night. I guess he's
sorry by now."
"I doubt it," was the calm re
joinder. "And I do not blame him
for feeling as he does. He is an
honest man—and a gentlen\an. He
has been suspected of a piece of low
thievery, and the story has been
told to guests in our house. But in
spite of all that, he would not have
gone away like this unless he had

sneering laught, "it is as well that j
he has gone. Since you take sides
with my chauffeur against me, it
is plain that his good looks have
turned your head."
"I mean it!" he declared. "I might
have seen how things were going.
Perhaps you may change your tune
when I tell you that 'Smith' is not

"Who says so?"
"Never mind who says so. But I
will remind you that it looks queer

Little Talks by
Beatrice Fairfax
"Before the war. my sweetheart and
I being young never talked of mar
riage. but we loved each other dearly.
In passing anyone, we would very
pleasantly say 'How do you do?' but
she would never stand and fool and
talk to any fellows nor I to any girls.
"Now I do not speak to a certain
girl because my sweetheart is angry
at her and asked me not to. I have
gladly done this and I do not say more
than hello to any other girl, even if I
am alone.
"Now. my sweetheart fools with some
boys, and if I seem angry she tells me
not to mind, for they are young. Once
while we were out with my sister, and
brother-in-law, she ran away from me
to talk to another young man.
"There Is also a young man two
years younger than she, whom she has
been out riding with and when I said
something to her about it she said she
wouldn't go out with him again. Then
she said I shouldn't be nngry for he
is so young.
"Now. Miss Fairfax. I believe she
doesn't mean anything by these things,
for she loves me and tells me so.
"I love her and to leave her would
break my heart, but there must be
some way to stop this. Is there?
Buddy. I have to turn right around
and ask you a question. You drive
me to it. When you were Over There
back in the days when we wrote the
words in capital letters, and meant
something very special by them, did
you ever have a superior officer—be
it sergeant or lieutenant or captain
whom you didn't trust?
Suppose you had an officer like that
—one whose word you didn't take,
whose actions you questioned and
whose decisions you didn't like—how
well do you think you'd have served
with him in command? How cheer
fully would you have undertaken a spe
cial and dangerous detail with him?
Would you ever have thought of pre
tending to be devoted to. an officer,
or a buddy when you didn't take his
word, didn't trust him out of your
sight? Would you—now we're getting
t"b the crux of the matter ever have
fallen into such a narrow way of in
terpreting friendship that you'd have
refused to let your buddy speak a
friendly word to some other young
doughboy who happened to be sta
tioned hack of the lines or out in the
trench with you?
"Of course, I wouldn't," you say.
All right, buddy, I know you wouldn't.
It doesn't strike me a bit better than
it does you even to suggest the thing.
It wouldn't be fair to doubt a pal
and not tell him so and let him clear
it up. And when he offered a decent
explanation of what made you doubt
him that would be the end of the mat
ter, wouldn't it?
Why under the sun shouldn't you be
as square with the girl you love? And
why under the sun should any one ever
get to the point of exclusiveness and
dog-ln-the-mangerishness where he ex
pects a pal or a sweetheart to stop
knowing there are other folks on earth
besides himself?
"As you went up and down the shell
torn highways and by-ways of France
didn't you find that a pleasant word
with a passing Tommy or a smile from
a Frenchie or a bit of banter with one
of your own comrades brightened the
day a lot? Don't you like passing the
time of day with folks you meet here
at home?
Of course you do, if you're human
and young and not a prickly old grouch.
Well then, lad, why shouldn't your
sweetheart like to have a friendly word
with folks? Why shouldn't she be jolly
and amiable and do the thing for which
all of us are always striving if we know
it or not—that la, make people like her?
It isn't fair for you to fuss about
her being friendly with people she
passes. And, moreover, It won't do any
good. You love her for her sweetness
and friendliness and nice warm human
ness. And the rest of the world likes
her for that. But her heart is yours.
Now, my boy, don't estrange that heart
and drive all the affection out and put
resentment or tyranny in Its place.
That won't get you anything.
Where there Is no faith and no con
fidence there couldn't be any military
discipline, could there? There wouldn't
be a friendship worth having, would
And do you actually think there can
be love without trust or tolerance?

Body of Episcopal Church
Adopts Service For the
Nation's Dead
By .Associated Press.
Detroit, Oct. 11.—A tight that was
almost bitter developed in the House
of Deputies of the Protestant Episco
pal Church of America, on the ap
proval of a Memorial Day prayer for
"the nation's dead," which, how
ever, was finally adopted, together
with modifications which would
shorten the morning and evening
prayer services, minor changes in
the psalter and new prayers for the
Army and Navy.
Dr. George C. Foley, of the Phil
adelphia Divinity School, maintain
ed that adoption of the Memorial
Day prayer would mean "prayers
for the dead," which Dr. James M.
Owens, of Shrevcport, La., declar
ed would be a "radical departure,"
to be likely followed by a eueliarist
for the dead "a backward step." Dr.
C. P. Wilbmer, of Atlanta, Ga., held
the adoption of this prayer would
be an "opening wedge for requiem
mass," and objected to it strongly.
On the other hand Major General
Charles M. Clement, of Sunbury, Pa.,
commander of the Twenty-eighth
1 Division before it went overseas; Dr.
George Craig Stewart, of Evanston,
I Ills., and others expressed the op
| posite view.
