THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE
I WANT TO BE ALL TO DICK
(Copyright, 1914, by the Newspaper Enterprise Association.)
As Djck kissed me good-bye this
morning he said : "Don't worry, Mar
gie, it will surely come out all right."
Just then Harry Symone drove up for
him and they went off to make up
some plan of action.
I was not sure I was doing right,
but as soon as he was gone I called
up Eleanor Fairlow. She seemed sur
prised and perhaps I was a bit sus
picious, I thought her voice had a
note of worry in it.
"Are you going out this after
noon?" I asked.
"No," she answered.
"Then I'm coming over to see you.
I want to know if you will help me a
little in some charity work I am do
ing." There was a distinct tone of relief
in the answer: "I'd be very glad to
do so, Mrs. Waveriy."
I am quite sure that Eleanor Fair
low will be a good woman to have on
my committee at our bazaar. She is
very pretty and has a fine personality.
I have never heard her say an ugly
thing about any one and the feeling
that she is still in love with Dick is
more intuitive than one based on any
thing that I have seen or heard.
Perhaps she will help us out with
her knowledge of Dick on the train,
but I am going to be very careful to
sound her on the subject before I tell
I wonder what I would do if some
other woman had married Dick after
.1 had fallen in love with him? I al
ways have an idea that Eleanor Fair
low feels as though I were the inter
loper and that if I had not appeared
on the scene she would by this time
have been his wife.
I am very sorry for this, for per
sonally I Jike her; she interests me,
she is a brilliant thinker, has a sense
of humor and with the one excep
tion of where her friend interfered
with her love would certainly make a
I have been wondering ever since I
saw her at the luncheon that I left
because Dick did not want me to call,

women loved a man enough for both

I thinkvDick loves me best of all
in the world, but I know down deep
in my heart that I will never be satis
fied with that I want all his love. I
also am almost sure that if Dick had
not met me he would have married
Eleanor Fairlow and probably been as
happy with her as he has been with
me. And here I am this morning go
ing to this woman to probably ask a
favor for my huBband.
Would I grant it if I were in her
Besides, I think, perhaps, I am a lit
tle curious to know just how long
Dick stayed up and visited with Miss
Fairlow on the train.
I keep telling my thoughts to you.
