For weeks the husband, a railroad switchman, has been losing his xpay checks in a dive. two blocks from the police station. Two weeks ago he lost! All Furniture- Gone. The home was almost devoid of fur niture. The player piano went to pay the grocery bill. The wife's diamond went to buy food. The husband only drew down $450 pay In February. Appealing to the police she was told "We can do nothing." "Well, perhaps I can." she shouted. She darted by the outlook, thru heavy curtains. Into the midst of a crap game. She says she saw the cop bank ing the game long enough to get his badge number before the lights were snapped off. In the scramble she grabbed a man and hung on. Got Husband's Watch. "I don't go until I get my husband's watch," she insisted. Her prisoner in sisted he had pawned it for 935. He gave her $35. She demanded her hus band's last pay check. ' "It's gone," was the reply.

"I'll give you 5ust two days to re turn my husband's pay check." was her ultimatum as she hurried from the dive midst an echo of guffaws.

THE MAXW ELL TRUCK HE'S FAST ON HIS "FEET 99 He responds with spirit to any request. He is up and away in a jiffy, gets over ground faster than bigger fellows, who struggle under the heavy burdens of their own dead weight. He turns a corner quickly, picks his way in and out of traffic, fairly runs away from most any other carrier when a street's thick with teams and motors. -' . He therefore makes more trips, more miles in a day, covers more territory, delivers or collects more parcels or freight. That's why some call him "Speedy' Maxwell. He's there when it comes down to getting a 'thing done in a hurry. He might just as well be called "Thrifty' Maxwell, for he's a penny counter, if you like. He never uses food except when he's work ing for you and he's almost sure to make you a present of his first cost in one trip around the calendar.

The Milliners Promise a Colorful Sea son iu Hats and Insist ipm a Striking Innovation in the Form of Pendant Trimming Thai Drops to the Shoulders Iiike Karriiujs or to the Waist Like a Scarf. Whatever is on a hat today must go down. The brave upward flares of trimming have ceased. This fashion, which began tenta tively a year ago, is now in full swing and acceptance. it dominates tne spring millinery. It will be regarded with anxiety and diapproval by cer tain types of women wno have de pending upon the height of their hats to offset the shortness of their figures. The Indian wigwam hats, those in which paradise swirled to ten inches above the crown, have gone with the autumn leaves. The entire movement in millinery tor tne incoming season is opposed to height. The short woman must augment her lack of Inches in another way. There is really no ne cessity 10 do tnis unless she has ar rived at the stout, matronly age when she feels compelled to taKe some ac tion that will give length to breadth. .Another striking innovation in new millinery is the extra brim tnat rolls away from the head. It does not com pel the drooping brim to go back on the shelf. The milliners say there Is room for all kinds of hats in the world. and bugles, anoScwrapped with opa lescent taffeta, it looks as tho the headgear had been made for some one who took part in a comic opera. Yet there. are women who are wearing these turbans and manage to carry them off with distinction. They liken themselves to gypsies, not savages, and let it go at that. It's another touch of the Spanish influence, of course. Scarfs That Drop Down. The demurest hat in these new models has a scarf that wraps itself around the crown, is made of silk net in & neut-al color, and falls down one side of the figure nearly to the knees. At the edge of the brim, just over the scarf, two red roses are attached with their stems longer than nature ever permitted them to' grow. The roses themselves touch the waistline. The sketch shows this hat. The straw is black and glistening atd the scarf is of brown tulle. Not only the tulle draperies, the roses and tjie earrings drop downward from the" brims of spring hats, but tha paradise, the huge brushes of silk and straw, the ornamental tassels of feath ers and floss dangle over one ear or tne otner. A Paris fashion of last summer is also repeated in long, heavy Victorian curls that are attached to the under part of the brim to drop over the shoulders, making every young woman look as tho she were a potential Mary Picktord. MA Lrue hat with tlrooying brim of fine blaelc Etrav draped with brown ttle -which fulls on one side to the knees. Two red roses with long stems are attached to the brim,. Iast summer th cauliflower hat, as it was recklessly called, had its own way in Paris, and it was the first harbinger of the regular brim that turned upward in the bpanlsh fashion, It was made in f lutings, iu scalloped petals of silk, satin, or taffeta. Today the idea is repeated in haif a hundred models, aitho the riutmg and pinking has disappeared. , There are certain hats with upturnea brims of straw that have regular inundations in the surface as tho they were made with a .Marcel iron. And even on these hats the trimming goes down ward, even if the brim goes upward. The contrast is a bit strange, and after all. it is a queer idea to- introduce this upturned Spanish brim at a time when the whole emphasis of millinery is laid on the downward , plunge. Earring this rolling brim, here are the various ways in which the new hats show their Victorian tendency to droop. Some of these methods are erratic and sensational; others are as demure as the behavior, of a Jane Aus tin heroine. Barbaric earrings, for . instance, swing to the shoulders from the brim of the new turbans, and when these turbans are made of glittering straw 3o 32. 33 55 - c 5 2a 4 .

B.e handled rail road baggage. One day after deliver ing a heavy trunk on an upper floor he felt a pain in the right groin. The suffering increased and it was not long before the young man noticed the swelling. The doctor told young Pullen that he was ruptured and that he must either wear a truss throughout life or submit to a drastic operation. All sur geons know that hernia operations, with anaesthetics, etc., are dangerous; they may end fatally. Moreover, it is a well established fact that many rup ture operations are not successful; the bowel-soon b'reaks through the sewed up opening and protrudes worse than ever. Afraid of Operation. Like most others. Mr. Pullen de clined to take the risks of an opera tion; the expense and loss of time had to be considered, too. Hoping he might get a little better encourage ment. he went to another physician who, to his sorrow, gave him even less hope. It was pointed out to the young man that unles3 the rupture were per fectly held all the time or the sur geon's knife successfully used, he might expect an increase or doubling in tho rupture with further compuca ttons. or the dreaded strangulated hernia which kills so many raptured people. Victim of Trasses. The victim bought a truss, a hard spring-like affair, the best he could get. It tortured him. H tried an other still no relief. He was com pelled to give up his express business. The hard tasks of ordinary men were forbidden him. He became an insur ance agent, in which position he did not need to do bOdily work. For six years Mr. Pullen dragged around, using various trusses, hard, elastic etc.. with never any content ment. One day his mother told him something she had just found out. It was a simple and easy thing for him to do. Ha lost no tune. Discarded His Traw. Relief came at once, he almost for got that h had any rupture. After ward came m cure a complete healing and, although years have passed and Mr. Pullen 3 an energetic carpenter, working on buildings, climbing over roofs, lifting lumber and such like, he is' absolutely free from the old hernia. He knows tie is completely, lastingly cured. There was no operation, no lost time, no trouble comfort and contentment from the very outset. He is & strong, cheerful-minded man.
