There was somebody waiting for
him, she said, and Elwyn knew who
"Forgive!" was the first fluttering
word that greeted him from Winnie's
"I have blessed you when I thought
your heart had turned away from
me," said Elwyn. "How much more,
now that I know you are all my own."

The polka dot blouse in silk, in
linen or in voile has captivated the
summer girl everyone is wearing
The separate skirt is one of many
"old fashions" that have been reviv
ed this summer. It's especially pop
ular in wash fabrics ratine linen or
novelty colors and in gaudy plaids or
bright stripes and smartly trimmed
with tabs and pockets and buttons.
The coin spot vies with the polka
dot for favor. Many of the fine voiles
are spotted with blue, black, pink or
green in spots as big as a dime.
Ruffled gloves are the newest
fashion frill. Tiny edges of niching
run up one side of the opening of the
16-button silk gloves, but the short
gloves are befrilled at the top as well
as at the opening.
Narrow velvet ribbon in black or
collars flutter from the ribbon girdle
of many of the summer frocks. A
charming model in yellow dimity has
a deep ribbon belt of mauve taffeta
and from two big eyelets in front two
strands of narrow violet velvet rib
bon fall to the edge of the skirt .
ADVICE TO JUNE
BRIDES "HAVE YOUR DUTIES AND DO THEM'
BY MADAME SCHUMANN-HEINK
The Famous Diva
The roses and moonlight of love,
oh bnde of June, are like the roses
of the garden and the transcendent
light of the August moon intermit
There always comes a time when
the rose blush is bare and the nights
are cold and dark.
Life even married .life is not a
"the dansant," where one dances to
music and eats and drinks from ex
quisite china or rainbow glass.
The mere physical part of living
the feeding of hungry mouths, the
calming of worn out and tired nerves,
the shouldering of numberless cares
and responsibilities you, my dear
girl, must take upon yourself these
duties. They are yours quite as much
as they are your husband's.
It has always seemed to se that the
beautiful American girl grew up with
too little sense of responsibility. She
seems to think that life is to be "one
grand sweet song" and she forgets
that she will be asked to at least play
It is as much the duty of a wife to
work each day in the home as it is
for the husband to work at his place
Idleness is the cause of half the un
rest evinced by women today and
seven-tenths of the divorces.
There is no reason why a woman
in good health should not do her part
toward conserving the income that
her husband earns.
The duties of a wife mean some
thing more than to dress up in your
best frock and greet your husband
with a kiss every evening when he
comes from the office.
(Another Schumann-Heink Article
A gentleman out motoring with a
friend noticed that they were crawl
ing along a thoroughfare where pre
viously they had been accustomed to
go at full speed. He asked why the
car was run so slowly.
"Why," explained the driver of the
car, "everybody's carrying home gar
den tools now and you can't run over
a man without risk of a puncture."
