VTT JXffll ON BEING "IN THE BLUES" By ELLEN iTie Triumph of Soma- people are chronically afflicted with the blues. They go around "with a hang-dog expression on their faces that la peculiarly disconcerting to every other paraori with whom they como In contact. .ffh.nVl -thing, too,- Is that theso possl mlstS'gfciy In their Wool Wot for thorn tha ilglitef and tho Joyous sldo of life! No, Indeed, They foet that an all-wise Providence has specially chosen them and set them apart as children of sorrow. At the same time, they havo a real slow of pride In the fact that they, and they alone, havo been so. chosen. Human nature Is a. curious thing and Its mainsprings of action arc quite un accountable. The man or woman who Is never so happy as when unutterably mis erable 1 a person' met with all too fre quently, Irish as the description may sound. ' Tha Immortal Mrs. Gummidgo, that "lone, lorn woman" of "David Copper field" fame, has her replica In many mod ern women today'. t Mrs. Gummidgo would turn on tho watertaps of , woo upon the very slightest encouragement, until the very heavens wept, too. In' sympathy. Yet she had a happy homo and nothing to worry her. Her depression was curious, ohd Its mainspring' unaccountable, since It -was founded In lamentations for a long nines departed spouse who had always ill treated her In life, and whom -sho had always cordially disliked. His demise, however, no matter how many years ago It had occurred, offered b reason for her tears and tribulation. "What dpted It that sho was Infinitely happier .without him, and that many many years had dimmed tho wclcomo patting? She had ,an oxcuse, though a very thin one;, for being '!in, the blues" so blue she-was from morning to night. But the tale of 'Mrs. Gummidgo has its pointers, too. For when a real sorrow came to tho family, she threw off her pessimism and became the brightest and most rUseful .member therein; In fact, a veritable -sunbeam.' And, ihlB serves' 'to show that much of the pessimism and the "blueness" that one meets can be entirely overcome. For a determination to look only on the bright side of life will work wonders. Only the other day I mot a young mar ried woman who was literally beaming with ho joy of life. "You do' look happy," J said, '-'what piece of good fortune havo you Just fallen heir to?" She laughed happily. "I've been re forming," said she, "and that's all. You know, I used to be a sort of chronic wet blanket. It wasn't entirely my own fault, for last fall I had rather a bad Illness, and I suppose that left me rather weak and nervous. Anyhow, I was a melan choly person, who couldn't see any Joy In life- at all. "It was dreadfully hard on Tom. You know-how-.bright and lively, ho Is? Well, I wouldn't go anywhero. with him, be cause I Imagined' that 'my nerves' wouldn't stand It. I preferred to mope at home. "Tom was a perfect angel. He'd stay home with me, and do everything to ohecr me up. Sut It was no uso at all I was. always 'In tho blues,' and I would make no -effort .at all to meet him half way and brighten up a bit. "Alter a time, I noticed that Tom was always working late' at the office. I seemed to see less and less of him. This added another reason to my depression. 3 lmajflned myself a thoroughly ill-UBed wife. - r "One day.1 1 poured the whole tale Into the ears, of a great friend of mine, a very sensible, well-balanoed, normal sort ot woman. I was certain that she would sympathize with me, for she was one of the kindest persons I have ever known. "But she did nothing of the sort. My dear girl,' said she, 'I'm so glad that you havo mentioned this, for I've been longing for a long time to give you a good shaking! You are acting Just the CHILDREN'S CORNER BUTTERFLY BLOOMS YOV remember, of course, how the fairies worked and made flowers Moonv In the greenhouse that had no blossoms! And how. when the flowers bloomed and the air was filled with fragrance, one dis contented fairy still objected and said something waa lacking? "Something lackinsr here?" exclaimed a happy fairy. "Look around and seo tho buds and blooms and smell their fra grance an't think about what isn't here." y, I know all that." said the first fairy, "but Qtr Is something missing Just ihe same.

"But why does ho work late at tho office and neglect me so?" I asked querulously. " 'For the very good reason that he prefers working lato In tho ofllco to stay ing at homo and listening to your gloomy talk,' was tho Instant answer. 'Of course, ho doesn't need to work lato down there but ho prefers it, You see, you aro not making tho home a very happy one for him and, my dear, Just look In tho mir ror for a moment!

"Is It a bad ono?" was asked. "I think ho Is very stubborn." "Well, you and mother say that I am." "You surely aro, and therein Ilea the danger If you wed Itcxford, Two stub born natures aro sure toft bring about' a clash." "I tlilnk HUgh loves mo well enough to' give mo my way In most things," said tho daughter In tones of trust and confi dence. "Yes, Just now! but how about later on?" "Father, you aro a dear, otd, gray headed man, nnd you nro overanxious about mo. You needn't be, however. Everything will he Just loVolyl I know two different glrla that married stubborn men. and thoy havo nover had tho least trouble. Thoy toll mo that their husbands delight In giving Up to them." Tho father smiled and turned to his paper. What was tho use? Love sees tho roses but not tho thorns. And Hugh Itexford's mother said to him: "My son, Miss Trenton is1 a very nlco girl hut I've got n criticism to make." "You can't have, mother not a single one," he replied, "She's got a stubborn disposition." "Sho can't have." "But her friends say so." "And you antlelpnto wo shall quarrel?" "It can't bo otherwise, unless you let her havo her own way." "Thoro will bo no quarreling, mother. Wo are both too loving and Bonalble for that Of course, Lionel will have her opinion about this and that, ns every woman has a right to have, but It will bo for mo to docldo any question of mo ment." "But If Bho refuses to surrender hef opinion?" "Why find lions In the path where thoro aro none, mother? I don't want a namby-pamby for a wife. I want ono with opinions! If sho la wrong on a question 1 shall tako great pleasure In discussing It and showing her where sho is wrong." Tho mothar smiled and sighed. Tho marringo took place, and the newlywcds were ver happy for a time. If Hugh said tho sky was green, then green It was. At least, the young wife, who know it was blue, dldn t dispute his color. If she decided that tho piano looked hotter in tho southwest corner of tho parlor he accepted her decision with out a word. Both firmly meant to avoid a. clash that would bring out their stubbornness, nnd for a year things went very well. They did not bring up religion, politics or the color of tho cat's eyes, and at tho end of the year tho brldo said: "Father wos over hero for nwhllo to day, and when I laughed at tho predic tion he mado Just before our wedding ho didn't know what to say." "What did you father predict?" "That wo would clash and neither of us glvo up." "That's funny. Mother made the same prediction." "But we have not clashed." They would havo lived together a life time and not dlaputed aa to whether, if a rabbit had a longer tall, tho fox could catch him a minute sooner, or the height and "weight of Adam as ho stood In the Garden of Eden waiting for Eve to come along and keep her date, There must bo something more mo mentous than that. It was coming and was very close at that, but they did not seo the shadow. Ono morning nt breakfast the wlfo re marked ns sho sipped her coffee: "Hugh, do ooffee and tea grow on the same trees?" "Neither grows on a tree, dear. Coffeo grows on a bush and tea grows on a shrub." "I think you aro wrong about that." "I can't be. I know a fellow in a tea and coffeo house." "But some one, may have deceived him. I havo an uncle who lives In Russia " "But neither tea nor coffeo is grown In Russia." "Hugh, you must be thinking of sugar beets." "And the land only knows what you must be thinking of." "Very well; we won't discuss the mat ter further.' "I should hope not" It was a pretty cold parting when ho started for the office, and but for cer tain happenings both would havo felt ashamed of themselves an hour Inter. The husband had seen a bracelet that he wanted to buy for the wlfo, and to get tha price ho had made a bet on the races. It was a sure thing, but ho lost by yards. Then some one called his attention to the fact that he was getting baldheaded, and he was so mad about it that he gritted his teeth. Again tho nickel that he de pended on to get him homo on tho Btreet car turned out to be a baso and low down coin, nnd he was not only humili ated before men but had to walk a mile and a half. Meanwhile the young wlfo was having her troubles. The telephone went dead! the grocer's boy had a fight and was de layed an hour gattlng patches and plas ter! sho burned her hand, and the pet hen she had raised from n chick started out to beat a neighbor's rooster at crowing and fell over as dead as a door nail. The old ohap with the cloven hoofs had the way all paved and sprinkled for the flne little row that was to come off that eve ning, The wife had half admitted to herself during the day that Bho had made a mis take in the country, but wherl the hus band sat down to his dinner with a smile of half superiority and half pity she could not resist saying: "Well, do you know any more about tea and coffee growing than you did this morning?" "It wasn't necessary for me to learn any more," was his reply, "I didn't know- that I was marrying' such a wise man," "I have "known for a long time that bananas were not dug out of the ground." "Then It'tt Just as father -warned ma" "And as mother warned me." "Hugh, J have always said I would never live with a stubborn mule of a husband a week after finding him out" 'Make a change of sex, and It's the very thing I've said." "Then then " "As you WI1L" It wasn't fair to put the burden on her, but when he came home again she had departed frron his house and gone to her father's. He looked the doors and went to his mother". No talk about divorce. No agreement to separate.

CHRISTINE FREDERICK Author"lsrfi New Housekeeping." "First planned, first finished." Even though summer and porch life seem very distant, it Is not too early to begin to plan for summer furnishings. Last sea son a woman who wished to have a set of reed porch furniture re-Upholstered thought Bhe would begin early when she went to a certain Arm in April. But sho was surprised to find that they were so booked ahead with their orders that they wero unable to touch her work until a month later. Seasons are practically three months ahead with the "trade." Wise, Indeed, is tho homemakcr who early plans her renovating, repair and special work on summer furnishings. There Is the whole matter of reed or willow, tho so-called popular "basket" furniture, and the many attractive ornaments and pieces, also fashioned from this pliable reed. If you see them In time, tho Arms who make a specialty of this kind of work will make chairs in a preferred size, lampstands to order, and carry out whatever decorative color scheme one has In mind in the ore tonne cushions and coverings. All of this work requires considerable time, and If left too late in the season cannot be expected to be done well. In addition, many houses give a lower rate on this work If ordered in the off winter season. The best plan is to decide what is needed, what cretonne or other hang ings one prefers, und place the order now. Then it will be sure to be delivered on time and done In a, careful manner. The painter, the wall- paper man, the carpenter, all prefer to give you service ahead of the spring "rush," There will be fewer stories of painters who come over a out on her forehead, but was smiling bravely.

If you go to them with your ideas and outllno what you think you want, they will be glad to con sult as to color, fabric and furnishings for any desired remodeling. But most peoplo do not plan ahead, and thon aro Impatient and unfair because their work is not gotton out on tlmo and tho Bervlco poor. It is not any more inconvenient now to think of theso things than later. The only point is to do it. This has been a "bad year" for work ers.
