" y DOROTHY DIX. the World's Highest Paid Woman Writer
I "Why dn women who ore other-,
wise well breil and observant of the
.xmenltles of life, carry their private
feuds Into general society'.' asked a
woman the. other day.
"They do, you know," she went on.i
'And It's one of the af dictions of
existence or.ilnst which I always ro-,
bel because it Is c unnecessary, nnd
so brutally selfish on tho part of those
Who arc not Willing to den? thorn

nuyanee It CAUSCB other people.
Personally, I have gotten so tired
of acting as a buffer between ladies
who are out for each other's false
hair every time they meet that I feel
Ike retiring to some desert solitude,
and doing the hermit Act the balanco
of my days. While, as for riving a
hen luncheon nr an afternoon at
' . lvldge, I am worn t sn h a fr.ir.l1
trying to nrrange my guests so that
they will not commit murder upon
.he perso..s of their next neighbors,!
Li. a: I swear every lime I da it that II
will never submit my nervous cyatcm
fo iijch a strain again As a matter

whom without fighting
i( "There are aliout a dozen women
with whom I am on terniM of more
jj or less Intimacy, and all of whom I
H like, for one reason or another, but
I thy seem to have the same effect on
I each other that n red flag has on a
M, . mad bull The minute they meet they

yB nurse I knev vll enough the
IB reason for all of Ihes? vendettas. Mrs.

p ' realized from the faces of those about
me that she had made a mistake.
'r "Oh. you just think I've changed,
Elizabeth." I said, simply because 1
made the remark that 1 never intend
ed to be the doormat kind of a wife
That kind ol a woman alway realizes
and Idolizes he" husband and invariab
ly she marries the kind of a man who
does not appreciate her. She finds thi

"Speaking of Idols and clay feet

Quietly, that it Is in my pocket. I put

"Who wrote It'"' asked someone,
"I ll tell you." answered Alice quiet
ly, after I have read It to you."
DID Nut SEEM POSSIBLE
' A horrible presentiment stole over
me, and yet it didn't seem to me it
was possible that anyone could have
printed a poem that might le the kind
I had written some months ago. But
at Alice's first words, my horror grow
because I recognized my own verse.
' How could the magazine have gotten
hold of It?" I asked myself and then
a look at Alice's quizzical face, assured
me than she in f-ome way had found
the manuscript and sent It to the mag
azine I was thinking this while Tom
was rummaging In his pockets, and
while Alice w-s reading the first line,
She crowned him with a laurel wreath.
And gazed Into his eyes beneath

She laid her head upon his heart
And hoped that it might heal the

everyone as they smiled at the Idea of
I the idol's clay feet being made Into
mud pies "Well, it's signed 'Katherine
Gordon," said Alice.
M i. EYES o HI R
Everyone turned to mo Inquiring
eyes, but only Elizabeth said, "You did
not write It. did you, Kathte?"
Her assuming to call me by my pet
name made me furious, and I answer-
Ied quietly, "Well, like Silas Wegg of !
Dlcksonlan fame I have been known
to drop into poetry."
"Does that mean that you did write
it," she persisted
"Yes, she wrote it," Interrupted
Alice. "I found It up in her room tho

sent it to the magazine They have
kept it so long and said nothing to me
about it so I had even forgotli-n I sent

more Tom where is the check I gave

my hand a piece of paper with a gen
erous amount written on It.
"Then you expected to find Kather

f "Yes, we stopped at the hotel and
f - Miss Parker said Katherine had come
over with Helen and Bohbv."
GENEROUS APPLAUSE GIVEN

"Perhaps," I said enigmatically, and
let it go at that.

one morning. "I never saw such a

asked Uncle U'iKgHy. as he came out
In the kitchen where Nurse Jane was,
"I 'h. 1 didn't eaaetly mean the bun

'but I need a hex In which to keep!
clothespins, and I haven't any. I've!
been using a basket, but Sammlc Lit-1
Detail, the rabbit boy came to borrow'
It the other da to no fishing, and I '
haven't seen It c'nee."
"So you need a box: do you''" a9ked
Uncle Wltfgily slow and thoughtful-1
A box for my clothespins went on
j Nurse Jane "If you're dow n at the i

j "I'll do better than that." exclaimed
the bunny III make you one."
"Can you make a box?" asked Nurse
Well. I guess If I ean help hatch
baby robins out of their eggs as 1 did
I last week I can easily make a box
i for clothespins," said Mr Longear3.
I not at all proud or boastful like, as
might naturally he supposed
"I'll get sbme pieces of wood my

for nails, and I'll make you surh a
bos lor your clothespins as never was

man "Thank you very much, " responded
Miss Fuzzy Wuzzy.
Uncle Wigglly was always glad to
have something to do when he wasn't
looking for adventures. So he put on
Inn old paper cap, such as carpenters

and 'hen, borrowing an extra saw from
Mr Sawfish, tie carpenter, and get

Is It hard to make a box. Uncle

plggle boy, as he came grunting alone:
with Jackie Row Mow. the puppv 'log
lad. as Uncle Wlggily was hammering
"Oh. no, it Is very easy," answered
the bunny. All I have to do Is to take
four pieces of wood for the sides and
fasten them together with thorn nails
Then I fasten a piece on for the bot
tom and another piece for the top. I'm
putting on the bottom now." and as
Uncle Wigglly said this, he winked
'and hammered the boards until he had

The plggle boy and doggie boy werp
Just thinking how wonderful UnCK
Wlggily was to be able to hatch robin

s hen, all eif a sudden, there was a
rustling In the bushes and out stepped
th" bad old Skeezlcks
"Ah. you are busy, I see," said the
Skeeslcka, sort of sarcastic like and
"Yea yes I am rather busy," said
Uncle Wigglly, as he got ready to nail
the ru ,.r on the box
And i am going to bo busv also,"
snickered the Rcec. '1 am going to be

" 'h, please don t begged tho bunny

Ha' Ha' Yes, I shall'" went on the
i Skce. "I haven't had a bit of rabbit

) Jackie Bow Wow suddenly leaned
io.-r and whispered to Uncle wigglly
The bunny gentleman dropped the
hammer and put his paws up to his ',
eara and ih n he thrust his paws down
Into the br.x he was making
1 "Herr! Hold on' I see what you are
trying to do'" shouted the 6kezlck8
"Yen are trying to hide the souse from

do It I'll get It out'."
W Ith that the skeo stuck his two
fron: skinny paws dow n Inside the box
and began feeling around on the bot

he thought was there.
"Now, nail him fast N'ali his paw
Inside the box Uncle Wigglly!" sud
denly barked Jackie
The rabbit gentleman took up the
hammer and the thorn nails and while
1 the Skee's pawa were still in the box,
'Mr Loncear listened on the cover,
letting the Skcc's legs stick out, of

' No let's see you get my souse!"

No, I only told him to make believe
