HH "I am uot so sure about it, Alice. I
H liaro been from childhood taught TJMt

H "What you should have been taught,"
IH said Alice, "is lhat money is not ci.sen-
IH t-.'il to happine.1-?. But I believe that
IHL money almost always maki5 people

think, perhaps, that is why we get
"I don't recall, Alice, ( that I have
evw heard you say before that ycur
married life la happy," I commented
wistfully, for I did want to f2tfl that
someone was happy.
"Perhaps, Katherine it Is my tem
perament, but I must admit that I hae
nevti been radiantly happy. Raiher I
am very contented, and, after all, that
is best. You have a temperatinoiiv that
makes you feel poignantly every emo
tion. Perhaps you can enjoy more
jC ' than I, but, alas, you can grieve more
than I possibly could. Personally I
am glad to avoid the kind of love that
would have me always on the mountain
top or down in the valley. 1 like the1
repose, the even tenor of my life much
better than the constant nervous strain
which you must be under."
"Then you think, Alice, that my tem
perament is quite as much at fault as
John in this feeling of unhappiness
and unrest that seems to be always
"No, my dear, I just feel that you
should have married a different kind ol
'a, man than John one who Is not al
ways getting on your nerves."
I "But, dear, I love John. Even to
I day, when he was terribly angry with
me because I would not turn over my
oil business to him, I couldn't help
thinking how handsome and splendid
"You're a queer littlo creature," said
Alice, "but don't, I implore you, ever
turn your business over to John. In
less than six months he would be
thinking that the entire business was
his. Don't misunderstand me. I know
tha ho would carry on your business
efficiently, perhaps better than that
nice cousin of yours, but It wouldn't

El Dorothy Dix Talks I
I BE YOUR OWN GOOD FAIRY
I I Do you remember how, in Poter
Pan, Maud Adams would come down
to tho footlights and in that thrill
ing voice of hers ask, "Do you bc
lleve in fairies?" And tho whole
house would shout back at her:
A belief in fairies is a very beau
tiful and lovely thing, and an agree
able and innocuous pastlmo if in
dulged in for an hour orao occasion
ally in the twilight, buC it becomes
a very dangerous and mischievous
faith If ono tries to make a working
proposition of it.
And this Is what women do. Nin-oty-nlne
per cent of the women in
the world still bedieve In fairies, and
they are sitting around waiting for
their fairy godmother to come along
and pull off some more Cinderella
stuff, and change their pumpkins into
limousines, and their hand-mo-downs
into Paris confections, and transport
them from their own gas ranges to
scenery of princely splendor.
And they expect all of thi3 change
to come about through some touch
, of a magic wand, and without calling
upon them for any labor or effort.
Now tho days of magic are not
past. Many a woman who began lifo
as a kitchen drudge passes on to
T riches and splendor. There aro still
' fairies and fairy godmothers, and con-
Jure but they work in a different
way in these times, and wo call them
by different names. The other name
of.. the good fairy used to be Luck.
I Nov we call her Pluck,
j Nowadays a woman does not have
to sit around wishing for a good fairy.
All she has to do is to get up and
be her own good fairy. Let's sec
The first thing that the forlorn
maiden used to ask her fairy ;ou
mothey for was beauty, and imme
diately the ugly duckling was turned
into a beautiful swan. 'Her carroty
J hair became golden, her pug nose
straight,' her sallow complexion
f bloomed with lilies and roses, and her
1 snaggled teeth were converted into
2 pearls. Some miracle!
1 The modern woman can practically
j work this samo metamorphosis in her-
.j . eelf whenever she chooses. Sho can
givo light and lustre to hair by brush
ing IL Sho can make over her com
plexion and hor figure by diet and
i exercises, and a lovely sot of tcoth Rre

Thousands Have Discov:ro?
Dr, Edwards' Olive Ta'uiftU
are a Harmloss Substitute
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets the sub
Btitute.for calomel are a mild but sure
laxative, and their effect on the liver is
almost instantaneous. These little olive
colored tablets are the result of Dr.
Edwards' determination not to treat
livcrand bowel complaints with calomel.
1 The pleasant little tablets do tha
1 good that cnlonW docs, but have no
- bad after effects. They don't injure the
teeth like strong liquids or calomel.
They take L..i of the trouble and'
1 quickly correct it. "Why cure the liver
at the expense of the teeth? Calomel
Eometimes plays havoc with the gums.
So do strong liquids. It is best not to
j take calomel. Let Dr. Edwards' Olive
Tablets take its place.
Headaches, "dullness" and that lazy
Hj feeling come from constipation and a
KT disordered liver. Take Dr. Edwards
Olive Tablets when you feel "logy "and
"heavy." They "clear" clouded brain

The second gift that the distrait
maiden asked of her fairy godmother
was a husband. Probably a good
many girls think that a young woman
still needs the aid of some good,
strong magic spell to enable her to
catch a man and lead him to tho al
tar In these days when the husband
supply is so far below par.
Not so. The girl Who wants to
marry is still hor own best match
maker, but she must depend upon
herself, and get out and look up the
kind of a man sho wajits, instead of
sitting In tho corner sucking r.cr.
thumbs waiting for tho fairy prince
to happen along.
There Is no use In angling in a
stream in which there are no fish, nor
is thorc any uso in' fishing for a whale
with a fly, nor attempting to har
poon a brook trout. So the woman
who is her own matrimonial good
fairy goes out into business where
men are plentiful, and she finds tho
bait that is most alluring to the poor
fish that sho desires, and before ho
knows it she has landed him.
The third gift that a maiden asked
of her fairy godmother was money,
so that sho might adorn herself In
glad raiment and ride In a coach and
four. The woman who Is her own
good fairy doesn't waste any time in
wishing for money nowadays. She
goes out and earns it, for sho has
found out that If women put In half
the time, and tho labor, and the en
ergy in working that they do in want
ing things, they could buy t-iem for
The fourth gift that the maiden
asked of her godmother was happi
ness. Tho woman who is her own
good fairy bestows thi3 upon her
self. She fills her life full of so many
interests that there is novor a dull
moment in it. Tho days are too short
to do all the things that she has
planned to do, and there Is always
something exciting to look forward to
She has found out that there is no
happiness savo In unselfishness, and
so sho does not try to drug herself
Into a state of sensuous bliss with
riches, ease and softness. Sho finda
happiness in being of service to others
and doing a worthy work in the world.
She loves and gives herself. She
broadens her mind and her heart.
She possesses hor soul in calm and
peace, for she knows that if we find
happiness at all we must find it in
ourselves. No one can givo it to us
from tho outside. No circumstances
of life can assure it.
And that is all there is to the fairy
buslnoss. It is pluck and not luck that
wins out In life. If wo win what we
want we must bo go-getters, not stay
wanters. Nothing Is so futile as to sit
with idle hands wishing for the good x
things of tho world, and bellovlng
that somehow, someway they arc go
ing to be dropped from tho clouds into
one's lap. Nothing comes that way
but envy, jealousy and bitter disap
pointment. Yet that is the way many womon
spend their llvos wanting things they
might have if only thoy had tho en
ergy to go after thorn. Eating their
hearts out in dreary waiting for some
miraclo to com arid change their lots
when thoy have the magic wand In
their own hands that would work tho
miracle If they only had spunk
enough to wave It.
Bolievo me, sisters, tho only per
fectly Tollable, fairy godmother that
any woman ever has is herself. So
don't wait for your good fairy any
longer. Get on tho Job yourself. '
