Other Matters DO YOU know It's simply wonderful the way the women of thin rlty have come to the Jore nntl are working their hands and heads off In the hospitals and other placed helping the doctors and nurses to combat the Influenza, Down at the Pennsylvania Hospital, for instance, there nro Kstclle Sander, .lean Jlulllttf Marian Wurts and six or eight .others doing whole time, half time and whole day's work. Marian Wurts I studying nursing regulatly and Is a pro bationer at, present. Some of the girls ro In at 8 o'clock nnd work till 1, others ro nt 8 and stay until 4, while others still spend the whole 1lme at the hospital. They are not di rectly exposed to the Influenza, hut do all kinds of work for the surgical and noncontagious wards. One girl had a ward with twenty-six bed, ami she swept r'll out in between times, when not combing patients' hair, washing patients, changing bed clothes and doing the duzen-and-one things that are necessary to help a sick person In one day things, you know, that tan be done by those who are not regu lar full-fledged nurses. I understand, how ever, that (he hospitals want those who have taken llrst-ald courses, and those who have had the three months of Inten sive training arc Invaluable, they tell me. I .JUST can't' get over Edith Katie I.ee's death. It's so sad. Her little baby is still living, but It weighs only live pounds, and, without Its mother, I um si f raid It will have a hard time to get along. Everywhere one turns one hears of n fresh tragedy, It seems, until one rrall7.es that one's mental attitude toward things may help rather than hinder the epidemic, and so we must call a halt and turn our minds to other things whenever possible. Mrtu Hoggs, Frances ISulie that was, Is stilt in a very critical condition, but every one Is hoping and praying thi't ohe may be spared. T WONDER how the cnllsled men feel - these days with all the entertainments and dances called off for the tlmo of the epidemic. 1 should really think It would be a rollcf. In li way, because they are n inuch-entcrtalned lot, don't you think': How ever, they do like It and probably will miss it very much. I hear Miss MnlHin Harry Is going to organize it number of girts to slug and entertain tho boys during tho winter, as they did last jear. Von remember Mar juirrltii Dixon and Dorothy Fngnn, who, by tho way. Is Margarctta's nlcco, ami I think, If anything, n week or two older than mi n lie; Helen Pltllcld and Mario y.nra. were among those who .sang with Ilss Harry at League island In the Kali. Dorothy Fagan's mother was Casslc )ixon, Margarctta's eldest sister, so that'.i where tlic nlcceshlp comes In. They are both awfully pretty girls, Murgarctta Is rather fair and Dorothy extremely dark, eo the contrast Is most attractive, you will udmlt. IT'S lovoly how much dim Is appreciated sometimes, Is It not.' Especially when J oil havo worked like, mad and h.iu mo much to do, you had no idea of how you would get through, and then Well, It happened thus: Queenie'a ulster had a cold, and doctor thought she had better stay In bed, then- (Jueenlc's other sister received word of her husband's illness, nnd she and her mother started South to him. So Queenle und Miss II . the children's governess, were loft In charge. Queenle had much Red Cross out Bide and four nephews and nieces to sec to nt home. So sho flew from pillow to post nil day, and when she came home half dead one evening nnd had a thousand-and-one things to. see to then, after they Vere accomplished she finally dropped Into n chair utterly exhausted, to find her small nephew, aged two, blue of eye, gold of hair, pink of check and with an adorable dimple, gazing mildly at her, and to hear him remark to his small cousin, aged three, "Isn't auntie a funny girl?" .NANCY WYNNE.

CHAPTER XVI (ContiiniciD There' was scant opportunity to observe more than the barest outlines of this singula! mulct ground settlement, as uie iw "' ,' ' Nana left no time for loitering.

The villagers u-thed hiforo them Into their various dwellings, and ns the Ittle company passed along the unobstructed street it was welcomed with demonstrations of u-spect resembling the Homage accorded some eastern potentate who deigns to vl t '' subjects. The change was grateful to hose who a moment ago had been thn objects of popular disfavor, at the same time that It stimulated their curiosity regarding Nara. Tho latter paid no heed to her surroundings. l,m her nrogress was timed to the needs of those wlio followed her. An occasional nach vard glance gave proof that her In crest In hem. whethei for good or III. bad no abated " 11- will. her. bowcier. was Imposslbl": a.,.1 II n the straggling little village, with Its groups of obsequious Indian-, wn. traversed In silence. When the Inst hut bad disappeared In the distance Nana tinned abruptly. The pat n was again Incoming pvcclpltou and although h" mysterious light with which the cave was I umlned revealed whatever obstacles were the wav. there were dark chasms In the overhanging cliffs that filled the thnld with ,L forebodings. Where they stood the L ground was level, making a little platform, f l -ni.nre. three sides of which were un- protected by walls. On the fourth side an arched opening In the smooth face of a loftj Srj granite, glittering with countless facets of crystal, served as entrance to a spacious Interior. Fmblazoned on the key stone of this arch was the same emblem that marked the cyclopean gatewuy to the In .lilted portion of the cave-the rudely carved nure of a condor. Beneath this sculptured symbol Narva stood for a mo meit regarding the others with stem com "osurc. Then she pointed to the shadowy depths within. "Enter!" she commanded. CHAPTER XVII A Song and Its Sequel NARVA'S forbidding presence promised little In the way of cheer or warmth of welcome to her wearied companions. The singular dwelling Into which the latter were V....r.a r.,,.-,llwl. at first glance, the gloomy abode of some medieval anchorite to whose . . .n..ll.ln .nnM.Ali n'l theory of existence aiijum's "i'i' w...,,,i. luxury was to be shunned, rooted out. ns an obstruction to the soul's growth. Whether or not Narva's mode of living was actually based on these mystical considerations her homo, at least. In Its lack of vis ble comforts, seemed the typical hermlt.'s cell. Here was neither superfluous ornament nor evidence of the slightest touch of feminine grace or care, imcompromlslnp abruptness, unbroken hy -The blackened walls of granite rose with niche or shelf, to a celling whose vague out lines were lest In darkness.

"Cat !" she said solemnly ; "it Is fur you." They needed no second bidding. Scorning the absence of chairs and the ordinary dishes and utensils that go with n meal, Hiey fell to anil, with the first mouthful, CNpressrd approval by varying grunts and exclamations. Kven the Rah was voted a delicacy of super lative excellence. In flavor It recalled the sweet succulence of rare tropical fruit, like the crlmoya, with a soupenn of splec that gale It the fillip of a genuine culinary mas terpiece. As for the bread. It was not bread at all, but some mvsterlous compound of flesh and vegetable, the nutritive iiiialltlca of which were tugerlv explained and extolled b.v I lie ravenous doctor. 'I'na, however, was denied participation In, this unexpected and singular feast. Ft nm the first Narva had shown a special Inteiest in the girl; canned, doubtless, by the Litter's eatly expression of confidence in her offer to protect them. This Interest, It now appeared, had n distinct purpose In view, whlci Narva lost no time In carrying nut. Satisfied that the others were provided with the entertain ment they desired, she took I'na by the hand and led her to a distant Coiner of the apart ment. "Will you go with me?" she asked her In a whisper. Una hesitated. To leave her uncle and tho others, trusting herself entirely to this mysterious being, was more than she had bargained for. Divining Hie cause of her ir resolution, Narva spoke leassurlngly. "They aro safe." she said. "Wc will come back to them." Something In the older woman's manner won I'ua's confidence She felt that n way out of their dllllcullles was being offered her. Hope of a btlll greater result silenced her fears. . "Yes," she said Thm. behind one of the stone benches, yielding to Nniva's touch, a door slowly opened, revealing a naiiniv passage upon which they entered. Ulaiiclng hastily back, I'na, noticed that tho door, a great block of stone revolving with the utmost nicety in grooves made for the- purpose, bad closed behind tl.em. She' was thus separated from hr companions and alone with a singular being whose purpose In all this she was at a loss to fathom. Nar. va's trustworthiness had appealed to her. It is true, and she had followed her leading when, the others held back Hut there was an nlr nbout Narva, suggesting the occasional freaks of one whose wits are not of the steadiest, that might well cause anxiety among those temporarily in her power. Just now, however, there was no sign of trouble, and Una repressed any outward evidence of alarm sho might feel Narva, Indeed, seemed to have lost the solemn dignity she had as sumed hitherto, and became cicry moment moro Ingratiating, reassuring Gently strok Ing Una's hand, she stopped In her hurried walk down the corridor and, throwing back the heavy veil obscuring her features, showed a faco marked by the nobility and calm of age. Its serenity and kindliness strengthened Una's confidence. "We will go back to them," said Narva ; "but first we must see." the added enig matically. "Why have you brought me here?" asked Una. "Something you will see. You will help us, and then I will help you. I knew you were coming." The explanation, If it could be called one, Increased Una's mystification. "You could know nothing of me. How could you know?" she persisted. "How can I help you J" "Ah, Narva is very old." she replied, her long bony fingers passing through the masses of snow-white hair that fell to her shoulder's, "and with the old there Is knowledge. Long time I lived with your people, far from here. All the years 1 keep the secret of this King dom of the Condor. No one knows If they know they do not dare to come. Only one he knows, he has come.

Others, Too The iVnr Dcpattment has decided to ie ipilre its women employes ti wear a uniform of "battleship gray," which will probably be adopted for all oilier women war workers. Only girls who arc enlisted will have lo don the uniform ut once, and the order is abroad (arly enough to keep them from buy ing other fall and winter clothes. The purpose (.-f adding the "battleship gray" to Hie navy blue of the .veowoinan nnd the dusty tail of the motor dilvcr Is twofold, .lust as the French girls were criticized at tho beginning of the war for spending too much nwney on foolish clothes, many of the American war workers, who are receiving higher pay than they ever had lu their lives. have been censured for Indiscreet and Im practical expense on their dress. The gray uniform planned by the War Department would obviate the dilliculty of deciding when and how a war worker was Impropcily dressed. Another advantage that It Is thought would lie derived from uniform dress for unenllsted workers Is that It would engender esprit di corps, that women would feci more that they did belong to the "hidden arm" and would lie less likely to leave n,,-lr positions. The tin timer of labor In some of the de partments employing women and girls lias been almost an unmanageable problem. It is believed (hat the more the women war workers feel that they aic part ut the army the higher will be the morale and tone of llielr work and the smaller will be tho num bers who will go from one position to another. Two grades cf suits are going to be mado tip, one for $35 and the other for JC0. The Government will furnish the material for the uniform at cost. fhe design has not yet been decided upon, but It Is likely that It will be something simple and In lino with the yeo. woman's continue.

Her hisltaucy became all the stronger when sho suildcnl realized that she was all alone among tin- Gyples. The fair visitors, who had been streaming In and out of the camp all afternoon, were gone. "Come," said Tlrzah again, and this time she took I'eggy firmly by thn hand. I'eggy thought fast. She wa. for the mo. tnent at least, lu the power of Hie G.vpsles. They evidently luleudid no harm, and be sides they bad gnoj reason to treat her wet!. Possibly If she misted them they would re ward her as Tlrzah had promised and thin would let her go.

When wc i each I he open road there must come a settle nielli between us two." Villa's words held a threat, which I'eggy coiiid only vaguely understand a threat against her and against Roland, who, ap parently, was her friend. As the two men glared at each other. Tlrzah drew her quickly Into the tent. It was daik there, hut when Peggy's eyes became accustomed to the gloom, sdo found herself In a luxurious. Oriental den, with beautiful hangings on the wall, a rug on the floor, deeply cushioned couches Inviting le pose, and a dimly burning lamp hanging from above. "Walt here!" said Tlrzah, leading Tot Into a rear compartment. When I'eggy found herself alone, her first Impulse was to escape. A glance outside, however, showed that the tent was sur rounded by Gypsies. Sho could not possibly get away. A slight noise on the other side of the curtained wall attracted her attention it was like some one breathing deeply. Then there came a little moan. I'eggy stood still, afraid to stir. Again there came the little moan. 1'erhaps some one was 111 distress. Maybe she could help. Thinking tills. .I'eggy crept to the draperies and peeked through. On a couch 111 another apartment was a boy sleep lag and moaning In Ills sleep. I'eggy was about to draw back, when she made n startling discovery. The boy's race was as blown ns any of the Gypsies. But lie wore a ragged suit, and through a break In tills ragged suit peeked out a bit of his arm And that arm was white. Startling thoughts flashed to Peggy's mind. Tills white boy was a captive of the Gypsies. He had been colored brown to make him look like the others. Perhaps they were going to do the same with her. The boy sighed deeply and turned his face toward her. Then she made another startling discovery. The boy was Billy Belgium. tin thr next chapter Oypl's c'uiriii.) I'eppy feeli the DEATH OF MRS. G. W.
