" When a Girl "
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problem of a Girl Wife
(Copyright, 1919, King Feature
Syndicate, Inc.)
Carlotta Sturges saved me from
the embarrassment of thinking up
some plausible story to account for
Virginia and the absent Tony
must be made to understand.
"Are we waiting for anything?"
she asked, as we three stood there
in the lobby of the hotel whence
Virginia had fled at sight of us.
"For someone," smiled Tony.
"Virginia Dalton. Our Betty's other
dear chum."
Carlotta's eyes caught and held
mine for a moment She seemed to
be politely offering me the right
of way, but when I gasped, blushed
and cleared my throat in a helpless
effort to find the right thing to
say, she spoke calmly in my stead:
"Mrs. Dalton isn't coming. Another
appointment. You were both off so
early to keep this appointment she
couldn't reach you. I was the last to
leave regions where I couldn't be
reached by telephone. So I have
the message."
"I flashed Carlotta a grateful
glance. I couldn't tell how much
she knew, but evidently she had
seen Virginia come and go again and
had put two and two together. And,
as usual, Carlotta was jumping in
and helping a "pal" out of the hole
regardless of the mud she might
splash on herself. Tony made no
comment on things beyond:
"Then we may as well go in to
But once we were seated and the
ordering attended to, he reverted to
a previous remark, and I felt that
he was telling me again what he
had said twice before namely,
that Carlotta Sturges was a brick.
"Betty Winston and you are kin
dred souls, Miss Sturges. I'll read
her brave, storm-tossed letter now,
if I may. There are things you i
must hear so you may stand by and
help us help her."
So he took Carlotta into our little
fraternity. But strangely enough,
I could see that instead 'of making
her proud and happy, it hurt and

puzzled her. More than ever I
felt convinced that Tony was Cai
lotta's' ideal—the man she had in
mind when she said:
" 'My man is the sort who'd split
rails if that was his way to the
White House, or walk on the stumps
of his less to battle for his country
if the rest of him "were shot away.
But there's another woman who may
need him some day. So I guess I'll
stick to real estate and good pals.' "
I had surmised at the time she
spoke that she felt I needed Tony.
Yet. I couldn't find any way of pro
testing delicately. Now Tony was
making it evident that poor Betty
needed him. What a tangle!
By the time lunch was over I
knew Carotta would stand by Betty
if she had to let that struggling soul
walk to happiness over her heart.
When I left Carlotta and Tony at the
shop to which he'd taken me in his
car my soul turned to big melodies.
I felt that I was my best and most
worthy self.
Ten minutes later I knew I was
my smallest, pettiest self; and I
couldn't help the change any more
than I could control the chance
that brought it about
Looking across the aisle where T
was standing trying on gloves, I
saw Val C'osby and Aunt Mollie
Pettingill deep in conference at the
jewelry counter. So absorbed were
they that I couldn't get their at

rands and went around to join them.
Aunt Mollie became suddenly ab
sorbed in her purchase and in giv

while Val, turning to me with her
most insolent manner, said in a
voice which hadn't a strain of wel

"Excuse me, dear," said Aunt
Mollie, turning from her absorbing

"This was very special. Had to be

Now where, Val, dear?"
They didn't ask me to go with
them. They didn't even pretend
they were glad to see me. They
made it evident that they wanted
to be rid of me, and right in front
of the clerk, who couldn't help wit
nessing my humiliation, succeeding
the eagerness with which I'd come
to join them. And when they rush

No, thank you, I'm merely going

From my experience in receiving
and answering letters, I have learned
certain things. One of them is that
when a woman sits down and writes
to me out of the misery and despair of
her heart, it is usually because she has
no one else to whom she can turn.
She has faced her problem night and
day until she has reached what seems
to her the limit of endurance. She is
writing in a stark sincerity, and she
wants no piffle, but sincerity in return.
The letter given below is from a wo
man in a blind alley from which she
sees no quiet. She says:
"I am so discouraged that I do not
know what to do. I was in hopes that
after July 1 things would be different
but they are just as bad as ever. My
husband comes home drunk as usual,
and my son by a former marriage is in
the saloon all day Saturday and Sunday
and sometimes Monday. My husband
works at night, and spends most of the
day in this same saloon. I am lucky
if I get half of the money I need for
the house. If my son loses any time
at his work he takes it out of what he
gives me.
"As they are big eaters, I have hard
work to get along with everything so
high. I only eat myself the scraps they
"I have done my best. I am always
at home, and have everything neat and
clean and mended. I would only be
too glad if they would bring their
friends here, but they would rather meet
them in the saloon. If I tell them that
any person I know is coming to the
house in the evening, they both fuss,
and say, 'What do they want here?' or
'What are they coming for?"
"Am I at fault? I really don't scold
or nag, and I don't let my neighbors
| know any of my business. I don't have
time to go out. Although my husband
is through his work at sevent-thirty in
the morning, he is often not at home
until late in the afternoon, and then
he comes in drunk. He was recently
brought home in an automobile so stupid
with drink that he couldn't stand up,
and as he became very sick he made the
house a disgusting place. They both
think I have no right even to speak to
them about the way they go on.
"I have no near relatives, and I can
not go to my friends in my trouble.
I do not sleep nights, and I feel as If
I was going crazy, I know how to work,
and I often think how much happier
I would be if I could go away and live
by myself and.earn my own money. Do
you think it would be wrong to do so?"
