R T HAVE been hearing very wonaorrui
K 1 things about tho young Armenian vlo-
tfy Unlit, Halg Qudenlan, who Is going to
play at tno Art Alliance on inursuay nu
ll trnoon, March 21, for the lovo or his coun-
if try. Some of tho numbers Sir. Qudenlan
his planned to piny on Thursday Include
leveral that havo beon arranged by him
elf. Among others Is a "Cradlo Song of
Eghlne," "Alagulatz," which Is the song
of the girls of tho Caucasus, Russia, nnd
in "Arn.enlan Wedding March."
You know, before tho war tho Armenians
did not allow their women to work out-
,' tide of the home for a living, which has nl-
wy been provided for them by tho men,
o the young girl Rtaycd at homo until her
marriage. Naturally to her, tho wedding
day, when she left homo for tho first time,
. U tome trial, made worso by tho fact that
, the marriages were made by tho parents
and the girl therefore had no choice. The
mualo of tho wedding march Is typical of
all this, and as the young brldo Is led to
; the church the violin seems trying to con
.J sole her, while tho piano Imitates the
IX notes of the Oriental musical Instruments
I, and tho .sound of tho church bells. I'er-
j.,hp the war Jias changed this. It must
'i have, for the Armenians have no homes
if sow. They are poor refugees.
L How little American girls rcalizo the
fv lives ef women In somo of the other co"n
R' tries. Think of walking out of your home
to church to meet tho man who Is to bo

Really. I think the afternoon of Arme.

H,ommltteo of the Emergoncy Aid and
t'Wder the auspices of tho Art Alliance.

of tho Wayne brnnch of tho American Red
Cross. This branch has nlwnys been self
supporting nnd they are very nnxlous to
keep It fo, They turn out on nn average
10,000 surgical dressings nnd other hospital
requisites a month and 800 knitted garments,
so It Is easy to see how much money It
takes to buy supplies.

CHAPTER XI
Holding One's Own
I MET Captain Donovan frankly, lie
laughed nnd talked naturally. Probably
ho was quite ud to kissing girls in the
moonlight It was 1 who was unused!
So Wilfred Hale nnd I with our tennis
racquets, tho Captain nnd "Fee" strollfd
off, The sun was too hot to walk through
thn gardens, Sio we chose a llttlo lane. A
shndy lnne It wns, with -ass growing up
In the wagon-ruts
The Captain nnd Wilfred Hale were talk
ing. I listened Fee, looking like n picture
on tho coer of a summer magazine, spoke
now nnd then. What she did say was
quite Innno Tretty she was the least In
t rested observer could see that. But brain
why she had not a vestige I She would
be charming to flirt with In the moonlight
to talk silly nothings to to play with as n
prettv toy. But In the morning light, lack
ing tho romanco of moonlight, she was child
ish almlst tlrosome,
But perhaps It was this that men wnnted?
Trettlness such ns a bisque doll mnv hnve.
A girl who can listen, nnt Intelligently per
hnpx, but with nn upward glance through
thick eyelashes, that Is wholly charming.
Well, I would see. If It was this I was out
of It wholly. I must ndmlt It nnd hasten
back to my desk In the office or another
oineo.
Wilfred Hale wns speaking about one of
the new books, Wells's latest novel, to the
Captain They were both Interested. They
discussed Its renl meaning.
Ffo said, "I thought It wns silly"
"Did ou rend It through?" nsked tho Cap
tain, switching at tho green branches with
a stick.
"No, I didn't " she said, "It was so stupid
In, tho beginning."
Tho Captain smiled polltelv. nut I felt
I had translated his rmlle. "Women hao no
brains "
"I liked it," I spoke In the little pause
thnt followed the Captain's smile
"Why did you like It?" Wilfred Halenskcd
"I think It solves ono of the questions we
nre nil senrchlng to nnswer In these days
It makes you think. You realize thnt ou oro
not struggling nlone ' I stopped breath
less "Ah." snld the Captain, "I ran see vou
liked It. And so you nre strucgllng, too?"
In his eyes was nn expression that eery
woman knows by Intuition An expression
of awakened Interest. In my case of re
nwakened Interest.
My luart beat a llttlo faster. The Captain
stepped to mv side, flrnduallv our paco
siacKpneci. we wero nnwming neninn, yes,
nnd talking. He was talking to me keenly,
lntcresttdly almost na If I were another
man.
I listened eagerlv. But ns I listened the
words kept saying themseles to mo over and
oer, "So It pays to be Intelligent."
Our wnlk wns not a long one. But In Ita
length I felt I had succeeded I had discov
ered something new nnd thrilling to me
I could hold my own against the prettiest
girl In the house-party.
