fBllen Adair Deals Willi the Grievance of the Long-Suffering Wife,
The wheels of married life must be well
tolled If they are to run with any sort
of smoothness. The majority of unhannv
mimlngoB arc caused by wnnt of thought
more than by want of heart.
Tho thoughtless husband Is to bo met
with everywhere Ho may be exceedingly
fond of his wife, but he Is thoughtless
regarding her, and she naturally resents
It. Hence vnrlous matrimonial upheavals
By thoughtlessness I do not mean nes
lent. That Is too strong a wordl Tho
thoughtless husband may be most atten
tive and dovoted to his wife. Ho may bo
always at her beck and call yet he doc?
not possess tho saving grace of tnct, and
'shows a lack of understanding sympathy.
Men do not rcallzo tho dldlculty of
liouBckccptng, for Instnnce. Tho average
man will bring guests homo to dinner
without giving his wlfo tho slightest
warning that ho Intends to do so. He
catmot understand why sho feels wor
ried and excited.
"Calm yourself. Mury!" ho will say;
"It doesn't really matter what wo liavo
to cat tonight! Jim Brown Is not par
ticular, and I'm so hungry that 1 could
eat anything!"
But "Mary" knows from past experi
ence long-suffering woman that "any
thing" will not do to set beforo tho un
expected guest! Sho rushes around tho
liouso and out to tho neatest store and
works herself Into a fever over the pro
raring of tho dinner.
In homos which boast of many servants,
this typo of thoughtless husband does
not work such havoo with his poor
wife's happiness, for tho heavy end of

"Are you going out this evening?"
Amy looks up from her book for ono
Instant, then she moodily shakes her
"Going out!" sho retorts. "No. "What's
tho good7 I h.avo nobody to go out
So Amy stays In. Sho misses tho fresh
ness of tho autumn evening. Sho
shuts herself up with her thoughts and
her grievances.
Everybody appears to be happy except
liorself. Everybody else seems to havo
a friend. With a bitter pang, sho notices
tho man who literally hangn upon every
word uttered by tho girl who Is clinging
to his arm.
"I Am So Lonely"
Oh, moro than onco you and I have felt
tho full meaning of that expression, "I
am so lonely," haven't we? Wo havo
suddenly discovered that wo are Just a
tiny unit, and that somehow or other wo
Just don't count
But, of course, this Isn't true, although
we may bo Inclined to think so nt times.
"Ve look at the Joyous faces around us,
nnd wo seem "shut out," as it were, from
the pleasures others enjoy.
The Cure
As a mnttcr of fnct, I am inclined to
think that tho loneliness Is sometimes a
blessing In disguise.
How greatly we shnll appreciate tho
real friend who will possibly turn up one
day better late than never! Tho being
who will see eyo to eyo with us, and yet
who will kindly sympathize with our
fallings, and who will lend a hand when
Xftfc are beset with difficulties.
r But It Is a serious matter from n
woman's point of view. I have known n
woman to marry more from the dread
sense of loneliness In the future than
from a feeling of love.
And this Is why, now we are on tho
subject, that I feel Inclined to sound a.
little note of warning. It Is bad enough
to spend a. day or a week with a person
who Jars ever so slightly upon ono,
but how would It be If It meant a llfo
.time together?
The best way to get out of the lonely
feeling Is first of all to get out of our
selves. The self-forgetting habit Is worth cul
tivating. It teaches us to keep our eyes
open to the needs of others, and it in
cidentally teaches us that. In nine cases
out of ten, we possessed blessings of
which we were In total ignorance until
we compared our lot with that of our
next-door neighbor!

until lately, when the "debutante slouch"
(whatever that is) and fashion book Illus
trations encouraged this attitude.
It la really too bad that our fine,
straight American girls should endanger
their health and ruin their appearances
for a mere passing fad. The hunched-up
shoulders and prominent abdomons of last
season were disgusting, and tickle fash

Tho Influence of the military fashions Is

But In some cases the problem of the
round-shouldered girl remains. Corsets,

A husband who Is thoughtless In the

If a judicious attitude Is maintained nt
tho outset by his wlfo. Sty sympathies
are all with her, and the remedy really
lies within her own hands, It sho but

It Is qulto truo that many wives are
foolish In the methods .thoy ndopt to euro
this type of thoughtless husband. They
bemoan his shortcomings to nil and sun

Personally, I thought that this typo of
Inconsiderate husband was rather at
tractive than otherwise! Viewed In the
most erltlriil spirit he only showed a
llttlo want of thought and that wns
amply counterbalanced by his kindliness!
1 think llioso other women must havo

No amount of nagging will cure tho

The suffrage struggle, it nppears, Is
nearly over in Denmark. The Govern

ribs should push outward. Kew women
will find they can -o this, because their
clothes nre constraining. This Is a se
rious defect and the organs of tho chest
and lungs will be affected sooner or later.
This Is the Interior result: the exterior
result Is the slouching, inelegant figure.
To stand properly let the arms hang
naturally at the Bides, taking care that
the splno maintains a vertical position,
so that a line drawn from shoulder to
hip would bo straight up and down. Now
raise the chest, keeping tho chin close
to the neck and the abdomen retracted,
and your round shoulders will disappear.
This proves that the shoulders are willing
to do their part and are not the offenders

If you are dealing with a round
shouldered girl, don't say anything to
her about her Bhoulders, but Induce her
to wear the proper clothes, allowing free
dom to the waist muscles, and to breathe
deeply. Then the problem of round
shoulders is solved forever.
Vegetable Soup
Two onions, one-half a small cabbage,
two ounces of dripping or margarine, one
pound of potatoes, salt and pepper, mac

Melt the fat in the pan. Cut up the
onions very small and fry in the fat.
Prepare the potatoes and cabbage, out

the onions. Add the flavoring and two

the vegetables are soft. If flour Is used

Pearl Barley Drink
Barley Is a nutiltlous grain, and makes
a very acceptable drink when nicely made.
Put about two ounces of barley into a
basin, and wash It In two waters, then
put the barley Into a quart of boiling
water nnd simmer It for about threo
h-iurs until the liquor is reduced f about
half. Should It require more water be
fore quite cooked, add It; stir often or
It may burn. Strain the liquid and put
to cool. When required It may be sweet
ened to taste. Mixed with milk (cream
is nicer), and many nurses add a glass
of wine, barley water may be sweet
ened and makes a nice warm drink. The
barley should not be thrown away as
many would do; It may be made Into
omelettes, or pies, or put Into soups. Bar
ley water does not keep long; It Is better
to make a little and otfen.
For the Baby
A dainty and usoful gift for the baby
consists of a big sheet of Turkish towel
ing of the very softest quality. This Is
large enough to spread over mother's or
nurse's lap when baby takes a bath. To
complete the set a bath towel and a
wash oloth Is added.
The three pieces are edged with a little
buttonholing of pale pink or blue, with
the baby's Initial, If he or she has one.
Some other models have a little flower
In the corner, or "Bady'a Bath" em
broidered across the centre. The set Is
charming, but very useful.
Schools for Mothers
There are now In London 800 schools

The Almost Universal Dominance of

It Is not often that two suits nre seen

It Is possible that tho new materials

Perhaps It Is the quality of tho cloth,
the softness and the pliability that tempt
tho designers to exercise not only their
skill but also their Imagination.
It must bo n delight to handle tho ma

folds and draperies almost of their own

to cut 11 perfectly plain Hkht
and coat out of such .1 material as duve
tyno or of velours.
Tho rarity of tho very simple frock
gives It tho chnim of distinction. There
nre many women to whom plnln clothes

A pretty touch Is given to tho dress by

The palm for bievlty In speech should

to a marine who testified about the ex

As Necessary in Ihc Kitchen as the Parlor
Author The New Housekeeping.
It seems almost nn anomaly that Just
as manufacturers nre perfecting labor
savers to eliminate tho heaviest house
hold drudgery this same task Is being
entirely given over to commercial special
lets. ' For Instance, tho bread-mixer ap
peared Just at the era when tnoro families
than ever before wcro taking advantage
of the commcrclnl bakery. In splto of
this tho bread-tnlxcr remains nt tho very
top of the housewife's list of labor savers
If she lives In a small town or bakes any
amount of bread herself.
How tedious nnd sometimes unpleas
ant Is the long task of mixing bread by
hand, simply because tho human hand
and nrm are not as perfect a lever nnd
pnddlo as are thoso of Ironl Whllo
many housowlvrs mnko tho most per
fect bread with their hands nlcne, ihero
Is every reason to cncouiago the uso
of mechanical mixers, especially when
moro than two or three loaves nro
needod. Several kinds of mixers nro
on tho market, all resembling one nn
othcr In consisting of n'pall with a re
volving beater which, when rotntol by
a handle, stirs or mixes tho bread dough
until It reaches the proper consistency.
One of the newest mixers has tho linn
die near the bottom, Ilko an Ico cicam
freezer. Instead of In tho top as In the
older models, nnd thoso who havo used
It claim It la easier to use oecnuso of
this Improved point of lovemge.
While beating up a cake by hand does
not seem a difficult task, when wo con
sider the wabbly bowl and real amount
of energy It takes to successfully beat
a large amount of batter, wo come to
tho cake mixer prepared to find in It an
energy saver. This Is Identical in prin
ciple with tho larger bread mixer, but
has a wlro dasher or paddle peculiarly
fitted to the lighter batter.
Wonders of Massage
The art of massage Is healing as well
as beautifying. It does not require a
professional's experience to learn the ele

of value to any one.
First, put your patient In an easy, nat
ural position. Sit on a chair which raises
you above the level of the patient' and
