Or an Unexpected
Turn of Affairs
f By CLARISSA
Hal Maroy watched his cousin from
nnder lowering brows. Pick wns
standing In the sunny window. Ins
mouth set In grim, obstinnte lines.
"Weil?" repeated Hal coolly.
"What Is It?" growled Dick over hi
"Are you going down to Scnrsdiilp
after what I've told you? Why. Ailce
would only laugh In your face!"
Dick turned ahurply. "Oh, no. !ic
wouldn't she's not that sort! She
might feel like lunghtng, but she would
hide ft well." he ended bitterly.
"Why strain her courtesy, then?"
"May I ask whether this is my af
fair or yours?" Dick Corning wns
white under his tanned skin.
"It la mine la a measure," was II ill's
insolent reply. Ho leisurely drew out
a cigarette case and scratched a match
on a gold box. He spoke between puffs
of blue smoke that wreathed his dark,
thin face: "You know when you
mentioned you were going down to
Scarsdale today I asked you (puff) if
you were going down to see Alice Wil
son and you snapped out yes and 1
knew why by the look of you there,
there. Dicky, don't got hot We all
catch It sooner or later like measles
and whooping cough. I bad a good rea
son for advising you not to go down
there. It's a fool's errand for you,
Dicky, my boy."
"You mean that somebody else"
Dick's voice choked Into silence.
"It comes pretty near being that,"
returned Hal somewhat vaguely. Then
rather condescendingly he added, "I
may as well' drop you a hint. Dicky,
"ALICE !" HE QAKI'KIJ.
boy even though she may not be for
you. you may be able to claim relation
ship with her Home day see V".
Dick Coming's eyes blazed menac
ingly, and bis big hands clinched tight
ly. His lips writhed into a strange
smile that wus half a sneer.
"You mean that I may marry Alice's
cousin May and thus become her cous
lu-ln-luw?" he ujiked.
Hal Murcy winced. "No. 1 didn't
mean thut. und you know It ton. I
meant that the relationship would be
on the other side of the house "
"Oh. you mean that you expect to
marry May und we. will be related to
Alice Wilson in that manner. Shall 1
congratulate you. old man?" Dick's
gray eyes pierced the veneer of good
nature that bad covered his cousin's
"Quit your fooling. Dick." snarled
Hal. flinging away his cigarette aud
preparing another. "I can tell you one
"You have told me so many this
morning I am tempted to forego any
further Infringement on your"
"If you go down to see Alice Wilson
today you'll be making the mistake of
your life. You'll be making a fool of
yourself. Believe me that I have a
good reason for saying this."
Dick picked up his hat. smoothed the
creases In the soft brim and settled it
ou his fair head. "You've butted into
my affairs toduy In an uuparduunblc
manner. I tiuve simply to say that I
am quite willing to bear any uiortihVa
tlon that my harmless actions may
bring upon me."
As be closed the door he heard Hal's
Impatient voice sending after hi 10:
"I'll do it just the same," gritted Dick
through his set teeth, and bis keen
eyes bud a vision then of beautiful
Alice Wilson telling him with tearful,
pitying eyes that she loved his cousin
Hal Marcy and that she would be a
cousin to him forever.
"I'll be blanked If she will!" cried
Dick as be drove through the crisp,
cool air. "If she won't (and I know
she won't have a duffer like me) I
shall go around the world, and when I
And a good place in which to forget her
I'l! stay there, only I know I'll never
find such a place." be ended forlornly.
' He was fiercely jealous of Hal
Marcy. Hal was several years bis
senior and of a domineering character.
Dick hod fallen desperately In love
with Alice Wilson the year before
while Hal was in Kurope, but Hal had
suddenly returned three months ago
and, with his customary overbeuring
manner, had hustled his cousin off the
field and Immediately laid open slejie
to Alice's heart Dick, astonished and
quite diffident In the presence of an
overpowering lore, had allowed him
self to be pushed aside until now he
found It almost impossible to regain
the ground be had lost.
- Alice treated bim with sweet friend
liness that was maddening as well as
disheartening. All the sweet, gay In
timacy of their friendship was gone.
He seemed to be numbered among a
host of unimportant admirers who
worshiped Alice from afar, while the
Intrepid Hal Marcy stepped boldly
forward and openly admitted that
there was an "understanding" between
Alice Wilson and himself. To all hints
and innuendoes the lovely Alice turned
the point of her wit to excellent ef
fect. Five weeks had elapsed since Dick
had ventured near Scarsdale, where
Alice lived. At his elnborntely care
less remark that he thought he would
drive down that way his cousin bad
been quick to sting lilm with the re
mark that if he was going down to see
Miss Wilson his errand would be In
But Dick Coming's lips were set In
that obstinate curve that few had
ever seen and none had understood
because there had been so few things
In this world that he bad had to fight
for. Most everything had come to
him easily, but now this greatest boon,
the love of a good, fair woman, was to
be denied him. She was to be Hal's,
and Hal was a bounder.
Dick was going to put the question
to her just the same. His attentions
to her had been so marked in the past
that he felt that he owed it to her to
nsk the all Important question. That
she would refuse him he had not the
slightest doubt It would be done
gently, but convluclngly, with perhaps
a hint nt some cousinly relationship
in the future, after she should be mar
ried to Hal. He routed out . a time
table, and. with one hand on the steer
ing wheel of the car. he studied the
trains from town and mentally com
pared the running time with the de
parture of certain raciflc liners due to
sail from San Francisco in six days. .
"1 11 get down there nt 3. drink tea
at 4 aud. If she is alone, ask her! It
will take her about ten minutes to turn
me down, including the cousinly advice
and all that. Then. 1 can run back to
town by G:30, catch the 7:10 for the
west and connect with the Kamkat

No wedding bells for you. Dicky, my
Ills mind attuned to these gloomy re
flections and with a drab future care
fully outlined. Dick Corning was some
what taken aback at Alice Wilson's
greeting. She wns a Dresden china
sort of beauty, all pink and white, with
soft blue eyes and huir the color of
ripe corn silk. She wore some little
soft, clinging gown of pale blue with a
pink rose tucked In her breast, and all
the pretty color faded from her cheeks
as her hand was lost In Dick's big.
"Where Is Hal?" she asked, as she
sat dowu behind the tea table.
Dick's face clouded slightly. "I sup
pose he will be down later. I came by
myself, on my own errand." he ended
gruffly. He accepted a cup of tea and
dropped lump after lump of sugar into
its pale depths before be realized what
he was doing.
"On your own errand?" repeated
Alice, fussing among the teacups.
"Yes. a fool's errand." returned Dick
"If it Is a fool's errnnd. why do you
come?" Alice's voice shook slightly and
her long lashes were laid against the
shell pink of her cheek.
"I had to a fool and his errand are
soon parted." Dick grinned miserably
and replaced bis untasted tea on the
table. lie leaned across the slender
legged table, menacing the fragile
"Alice!" he gasped.
"Well?" Her eyes were downcast, and
her fingers had ceased to flutter. She
wns very still and uow very much
like n sweet, sad little Dresden china
"I've got to say it and then I m
going on a trip around the world. I
love you. dear. I want to marry you.
I know you won't have me. but I want
to give you the chauce to soy no,"
stammered and stumbled unfortunate
Dick, saying more than he meant and
meaning more than be said.
"Yes?" murmured Alice softly.
"That's all." assured Dick.
"Yes; I'll marry you. Dick, the dear
est and best boy in the world, only
you did let Hal elbow you out of the
way. and it served you right for
awhile!" Alice's little hands found
Dick's clumsy ones and crept into
their warm grasp. One or two fragile
cups were crushed uuder the weight
of Dick's arms.
"What?" shouted Dick, unbelieving.
"You nsked me to marry you. I will
only If you start on a trip around
the world I shall go. too!" whispered
Alice In bis startled ears.
At 6 o'clock Dick brought his car be

steps of the bachelor apartments,

"I siipjMjse you've got yours now."
"You bet!" crowed Dick happily.

Nose and Goggle Party.
A famiii of tun loving girls recently
gave an amusing party It was called
a uose and goggle piirtj and helped a
number ot youug people to pass an
evening very merrily without much ex
peiiditure ot energy und thought in the
waiter ot a disguise.
Kuch guest wore a false nose and
goggles The noses wm purchased or
made by clever fingers of heavy card
board covered with chumuis and were
not removed uutil after refreshments
. As the guests arrived each was given
a curd perforated with ribbon run
through in order to wear the card
around the neck. a that every one
could see it.
The cards had on one side a number
by which each guest was known, on
the other side a list of figures 1. 2. 3.
etc. las many figures as there were
guestsi- with a apace opposite eucb fig
ure for a name.
lu the social conversation which fol
lowed each guest guessed who bis or
der entertainer was. Of course, with
intimate frieuds the familiar voice re
vealed the personality, but In many
cases this was not easily done, if they
ai tempted to disguise the voice, and
much umusement and many absurd
guesses were made.
As eucb guess was made the name
wus placed opposite the number ou the
card of the guesser corresponding to
the number of the person witb whom
be or she was talking. For instance, if
some one thought be knew No. 4 be

the gay people who were present as no
end of fun aud a most original way of
spending a jolly evening.
. When Cutting Striped Material.
One of the most difficult things for
the home dressmaker to accomplish is
the proper cutting of striped materials.
To lie able to cut a striped dress well
Is a proof that you are by no means a
novice at the art of dressmaking.
Skirts are always cut first Lay the
material out flat on the cutting table,
iiid it there is no "up and down" to
the material you will be able to fit the
gores into eucb other, cutting the ma

Stripes should run straight from the
