THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE
" CHILDLESS WOMAN IS LIKE BRANCHLESS TREE

giri he married com&jrtable. Says he
slept well for the first'time -the night
he got the letter from Mary, telling
how" well she was, fixed -and how
"sweet" I had been to her.
Aunt Mary, too, seems almost con
tent. She is knitting baby sox and
jackets and talking over with Mary
the best way to take care of young
children of which, like all childless
women, she is, of course, an author
ity. I have hardly had time to cultivate
any of the women in. thej-hotel, and
between you and me, little book, I
don't think many of them are worth
cultivating. They seem such a lazy,
inconsequential lot and it takes all
the brains most of them have to plan
how they shall fill, the hours that they
.pass between waking" and sleeping.
Most of them are-so greedy for the
admiration of every man whom they

emphatically. "I do not think ElieneT

But when Mr. Waverly and If

they had engaged passage for Europe,
I am sure that nothing was further
from cither's thoughts," . 1
"Do you really "mean they started
abroad without any notice?" she ask
"Mr. Symone found it imperative
to be on the other side, and EliencR
started with him on the minute." This
is absolutely true and I hope "will stop
the gossip, as Mrs. Brown did, not stay
as long as she was anxious to retell '
