DC TI4 . The Girl Who DC. 1 rl. “Went Right” By ETHEL LLOYD PATTERSON No. 294—The End of the Beginning. MKN may paint their picture* and carve their inarhUa. but they never can mold a human aoul aa uod and • woman can. For a w hile. I must admit. 1 had to struggle with depression. I tried very hard not to let mjr husband guess that I was troubled. But in spite of myself I was occasionally distraught when we were together. Our li»*« had become welded to gether in such perfect happiness that I on Id not but dread any change, no matter what that change might be. And I was no longer a girl. 1 was a woman now, with a woman's understanding. 1 knew only too well what the advent of a baby in a household most mean. I knew that 1 faced long months of illness and nervous dread; that my work must. In the nature of things, be neglected for a year or more; that I could not even be my hus band’s companion in the various outings, riding, dinners and the the ater. that we enjoyed so much to gether. And back of that was an even more intense fear. The fear of how he might take my news. 1 did not dread any actual harsh words s'tch as Andre s. Arthur was too true a man. too tender and lov ing for that. But I did fear that down in his secret heart he* might not be really glad es the news 1 had to tell him. And If this were so, he could not hide it from me. 1 would know, in spite of anything. Several times I tried to gather my courage to tell my husband of this new factor in our lives. Each time I balked. He was tired, or I fancied be was not in the mood for THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE Jodi Whert I Stand In Regard to Dick. I don't Just quite understand it. little book, but Jim comes over here almost every night with Dick, and they both try their best to cheer me op. It makes me feel as though they know something about me that I do not “I'm going to be devilish lonesome when you take Dick away from me, Margie." he said last night. M !t docent look as though 1 was going to take him away very soon. Jim. Every time I mention being moved to my home, tb powers that be recommended that remain here a little longer. You waven't Used It up with tho doctors, have you, so that you and Dick can live together n little longer?" Jim laughed, and Dick exclaimed. M 1 should eay not." Poor old Disk! Isn't It queer, lit tle book, how we label people tn our own minds. Soma people ilka Aunt Mary and Mrs. Bel win are Always "dear" to me. I never think of tkem without that prefix. I newer thought es Eleanor Fnlrlow without tho word "faacdantlng" bobbing up end tot ting Itself before her name. I always think of Ellens aa "sweat," of Mollie as "charming." of Donna Tenney as "brilliant," of Annie as "sensible," of Jim as "faithful," of Pat as "pa tient." of Mary as “true blue,” and •f Bill Teaney aa "Bckle." Sometimes I change some of these adjeettvea, hut tn my mind all my friends and acquaintances are card indexed with n word or two that simply dssoilbss them to me. Dick la the first years of our marriage was "dearest," then be became "thoughtless." For s time I never spoke to him—never called hie name —that the word "cruel" did not come into my mind, and after that tho word "false" need to make me shud der for months whenever my Ups framed hie name Yet such la the queer quirk of woman's love. There, I have /rltten the word "love," but l am set sure that I love Dick any more, at least I am very sure t do not love him la the way that I need to do I never think es him new that the words "Poor old Dick" do not end with a sigh. Poor old Dleki Ho certainly has grown old, and while psrhsps his friends are congratnlatlag film on hie better financial saoeuoa, he le poor. Already his hair has begun to whiten at the temples. When I noticed It the other day I really think It hurt ma more to Utah that I did not want to run my Angers through It and kiss the gray toekfl any more. All It meant to me was poor old Dick. la one of John Oalswortby'e books bs remarks of a woman of the streets, "Ska expected to find the Joy of Ilfs and Instead she only found the life of Joy. which Is a vary different thing"—| thtak man can find out this Is so aa wall as woman. I know that Dick has dona ao. Fbr him as well as for ma Illu sion has fled. I am satisfied ha blames himself for Eleanor PalrloWs death and my dreary outlook on life. Ha has plunged into work and. Ilka many another man. he Is trying tn forget his follies In the fever end stress of business Just now bo Is doing punnnee as vigorously as a fiagetlant. end while OF INTEREST TO WOMEN AND THE HOME problems. One thing and another, and the days slipped on, and still he did not know. And bearing the secret alone began to tail on ma. My eyes want back in my head a little. It did not take Arthur’s lov ing glance long to observe this change. It was on Sunday after noon, as we ware having tea before the drawing room fire, tbat ha came and sat upon the arm of my chair, and raised my face tenderly to bis with his hand. "My wife," be said, "do you know that you don't look quite well these days? Are you working too hard? is there anything—" he paused, “to worry or bother you?" "Nothing to worry or bother me," I answered. And then: "But there Is something." "And couldn’t you tell me, your husband?" Arthur asked. Ths tears came to my eyas. And then slowly I felt a deep warm flush creep to my throat and burn on my cheeks. I tried to speak and I could not. in the depths of my husband's gaxe. my glance held his. And then suddenly I saw the understanding dawn in his face. He gave a queer little broken cry—tho heart sound that men make some* times when they are stirred to tho very depths. I saw the understand ing dawn, and then, thank God! I saw the dawn of Joy. My husband slipped from the arm of my chatr to his knees before me. He gath ered me close and safe In his arms. And—l cannot write the things he whispered to me. for they were Just for Ood and myself to hear. (The Cnd.) his outside garments are In the lat est and smartest fashion, yet bis soul is feeling the rough galling of a fabric that hurts more than sack cloth does the flesh, and his heart, Instead of his head, is covered with the ashes of lost desire. Poor old Dick! I want to be your friend, and yet all desire to be your sweetheart and your wife has fled! Poor old Dick! I am-really sorrier for you than for myself, for you have to two devils, Remorse and Regret, and I have only one. 1 only rogret that I married you with out knowing more about your life and your loves. And yet—oh. little book, it Is so bard to be honest with oneself. 1 was Just about to put down hare that If I bad known about Eleanor Fair low 1 never would have married Dick; but even as my pan was poised to write the words I knew I was lying to % myself. I know tbat I would have married him had all the women In the world stood in line and said that he belonged to eacb one of them. Ob, little book, those early days of living and loving were glorious beyond belief. Time, place or circumstance can not take them from me. (To Be Continued) Fashions for Americans The danoea which mark the fee tlvHtes of Mi-Cars me and Banter will find no more charming example of aa evening frock than tfiis. In deed. this design combines fashion, beauty and modesty, and that la more than can bo said of all dance 'rocks this soosoa. Tbs vary newest bodices for dancos have tho silk coming well up to tho arms and shoulder, aa In this pattern. Hile Is n return of the early Victorian stylo ot drees, and the line of tho shoulders has a slope not soon la many years. It is quaint and becoming. Another marked feature of thla frock Is the eatln cord tbat stands out around tbe overskirt of dlapha nous material. This overskirt Is worn over s taffeta skirt and the bodies ts taffeta, to match. There Is n band of lace across* ths front of tho bodice, and U la usual to have this of gold or silver, or, if tho lace le white, to attach s tracery of flowers, la color, over it. Ths little bunch of flowers on the front off the corsage Is worn with every frock for the evening, and it may be made at home of bits of silk In several delicate ooiors. No effort le made to have the flowers exact, tbe Idea is to form a spot of mingled color. Often someone touches up tbe tiny leaves and buds with a paint brush, shd, again, they ars illuminated with lilt or silver or beads.

A muslcale for the benefit of ths Armenian relief fund, will be given PURE FOOD Conducted hr PAUL PIERCE. He That Hath Clean Hands Whenever I think upon the rela- Mon which clean hands near to oui public and individual heaith. the verses of the Fsalin come to mind; "Who shall ascend into the hill '•f the Lord? or who snail stand In >is holy place? He that hath*cl«an i'lands and a pure heart; who hath ot lilted up his soul unto vanity or tworn deeep'ully." It rounds as if this were written peelnlly for our fond guidance— lie that hath clean hands and •ath not sworn deceitfully" The •ighert rewards In our dally health cud food management come to those whose hands are clean figuratively and literally and who do not swear deceitfully, but keep faith with their patrons. If I could name blit one campaign—and one only—to be car ried on in the interests of heaith, I should say: Wage warfare against the dirty hands of food handlers. It ia not at all theoretical, thl* menace of the dirty band. It cannot be clash ed as another fad of those fighting for pure food. It is something for serious. lasting attention Its men ace to public health is too little un derstood. I dmtbt if there Is a state food official who has not been able to trace isolated casts or epidemics of typhoid, through getm-ladt n hands of milkers of cows. Cases of tuber culosis and other diseases may be traced ofttimes to infection carried by the hands of patients or those caring for them. It was part of the warfare against the disease-cartying hand, that made the public towel and the public drinking cup go. It is the habit some dog loveis have of allowing their pets to lick their hands and then using the hands to wipe their mouths, to serve food to others, that baa brought about a movement <o have pets muzzled and banished from places where foods are pre pared and served. What the public generally needs is to be taught to respect the hu man hand. If you doubt the disre spect shown this valuable human member, look at the hands of vari ous persons who serve you during your business day. Look at the hands and nalla of street car con ductors. I have yet to receive change or a transfer from a hand that looked as If it knew a hand brush or with nails out of mourning. One shudders to think of the germ.- on the hand which handles so man.v coins from so many sources during the day. Look at the hands and nails of the average waiter —units* you can afford to patronize the high er priced lunchrooms. Watoh the waiter take his pencil from behind his ear ash« writes your order, put it to his lips, cough behind his bare hand and perhaps use his handker chief. He guards everything about your service but his own hand, which is your greatest menace. Tak« a firm stand against dirty, disease carrying hands, whether you emidoy hundreds of workers or Just one do mestlc. If you are a mother, in struct your children to warh their hands after handling pets, play things. and all dusty, dirty objeots Never allow a child to come to the table with dirty hands. Refuse to trade with a, grocer’s or butcher’s clerk whose hands and nails show lack of attention. If you make the matter one of study, you will be amazed to see how many men who sell you food, from the pushcart man to the butcher’s clerk, do not seem to possess hantlknrrtilefa. Os, if they do carry a hand kerchief, it Is not a fresh one. In Russia, they say. since vodka haa been banished, the peasants may have two handker chiefs 9. year instead of only posse** Ing one, but—we do not inhabit Rus sia.

Supply her w Ith all conveniences for washing her hands often while at her work, and then Insist upon her doing so. Do not allow her to do nil or n part of the chamber work ami then prepare food without wash ing her hands between task*. See that she doer not have the lazy habit of keeping a basin of water standing and washing her hands in the same water over and over again. This is done most frequently where water is not as plentiful as it is in cities hav ing public water supply. Do not employ a servant who can not bring to you a clean bill of health. Exclude disease workers from your kitchen, as they are being excluded from bigger places where food is prepared. No one .thing is more fraught with health-htip to tho human race, than this campaign to exclude diseases workers, not only from our factories and shoiTs, but from our hotel and restaurant kitch ens. I am heartily In accord with this movement. I believe, however, that it should be extended to the cases of domestics in our own kitch ens To Keep your household free from these disease carriers, it is necessary to take a firm stand and. In employing cook, maid, waitress, butler or other house servant, to de mand a clean bill of health. It is better to secure the services of your own physician and pay the bill your self if necessary, then to run the risk of admitting a diseased servant into the home. The majority of our servants are employed through agencies. Why not make these a gender guardians of public health? Tut them under health Inspection.

Who can defy a group of housewives banded in a determined effort to regulate matters pertaining to the home? It Is a balance of power that no butch er, baker, candlestick maker nor em ployment agency dare defy. But it is not enough to examine the domestic herself.
