L'ST uhdt to Ret and where to cct It,
nnd hsjiitiK cot II. how to make It
comply with the strict rulings of the
Red Ctosi In rcitaid tt the Christmas
cartons for the soldier boys in Franco
Is a problem which Is likely to steal
vaiiu Ue time and add hnrassed wrin
kles to the bron of this year's Christmas
Naturally, when a mother has only
nine by five by three inches of space in
which tr- Fend all her Christmas feel
ings to a son In France It Is no easy
matter to decide what Is the ery nicest
thine In the world to send him; and
then piobably when she has made up
her mind on what It Kiall be she will
find that It Is either breakable or In
Fomti other way falls to comply with the
lied Cross r'KUUlltns.
As a matter of fact, there are some
ciy nice presents Indeed to be found
In the Ftores which have been manufac
tured expressly for the purpose of
1-n.uefzinB Into that stingy little carton
In the llrrl place, thcro is a, writing
kit a khaki or leather case fitted with
a block, a pencil and cnielipts It Is
small enough to lie flat and to bi easy
to earr. There Isn't a doubt that lots
of sons would liki tlilH, for there seems
to be so much for tln-m to tell they
appear to haw lost that depl'Tablc mas
culine weakness of "pimply neier writ
ing letters."
A pipe with a neat khakl-covcred rub-ber-llned'tobacco
case Is sure to "hit the
right spot." Any woman who has lhed
long enough to have a grown-up son
knows that this gift can never go far
wrong, and she can buy them at all
prices for her Christmas box to France.
Another present which looks highly
practicable is a kit that holds ti mirror
of polished steel, a comb, brush and
tooth paste Judging from the various
delicate hints flung out by returned sol
diers regarding beautifying facilities tn
the trenches, this gift, which costs only
$2, would be highly appreciated.
Perhaps every carton ought to be fur
nished with Just one picture, or a little
gtoup of pictures of the "family": there
are little leather frames for this with
mica glass, which could be carried
around safely in the smallest trench
kit nnd be got out at moments when It
would do the moBt good.
All these presents can easily be found
In the shops, and the prices are such
aa will not do much hurt to pocket
books that have been so willingly
emptied building bulwarks ugalnst the
bochc on this side of the sea. And this
ytnr there Isn't a mother or a sister In
thi country who will have to be told
twice to do her Christmas shopping
Ivery -woman should have at least one
waist. If It matches her suit,
, of 'course, it should, it Is most
venlent to have, when an unexpected
tlon comes and nil her light waists
blithe wash. This story, then, is
the woman whose suit is blue. For
.waist I discovered is of dark blue
ttei. It is softened at the neck i
dlently remain un were It not for tacks I
nnd nails. And tacks and nails, of
course, require hammers, which brings
me at last to what I want to say that
I know where you can get a nice ham

There Is no aulck way of getting an

Pennsylvania differ from Maryland's, In
formation In regard to the matter in
various books I havo consulted gives

JAi this thing that hnd come to Helen.
It hurt more than anything else the
faltlu that she had gradually built up
for herself,, the self-control that she
had forced herself to evince. For Tluth
had not been made over, not at all. she
had simply begun to think, and a person
who thinks deeply nbout anything al
ways suffers far more than the person
who drifts as Ruth had drifted. Now
she was asking why such things had to
he, why had Helen been made to suffer,
why, why? And because there was no
one who could answer her these ques
tions, she questlcned the right of every
thing. It wasn't until she saw and
talked with Helen two days nfter Ihe
blow had fallen that she was able to
contemplate matters nt nil sanely.
JtutVi waa admitted directly to Helen's
room, that room that she had last seen

Union ni not In bed. but she was
curled up In a big chnlr by the win

and excepting for the fact that Helen
looked very whllo thero seemed to be
no tiagedy lurking nbout anywhere.
She smiled up into itutn s race anu

After n few minute, during which
nelthir girl spoke, Helen said softly, "I
didn't see -ou yesterday because I
wnnted lo think about things Before t
saw even you.
Ituth noticed an absolute absence of
Helen's natural nervo nnd dash, as It
wn a.s If a nulctluc hand had been laid
remonstratlngly on her shoulder and she
was quiescent under It. In quick pro
test, Ruth returned.
"Whv did it hap to happen, wh
why? I'll neier belleie that it could
be right, never, never, never."
Helen looked thougnuuiiy out or tne
window. Ruth fell again her absolute
remoteness and the magnificent hold
sho hnd regained on herself and her
emotions Instantly Ruth was penitent,
npd ashamed of her outburst.
"I thought that too," Helen said flnal
ly, "nnd T went oxer things again and
again In my mind, nnd I wandered why
It had to happen to mo. nut after an,
why not. Ruth? Jim and I had each
other for all those wonderful days. There
must have been some kind of a reason
why he was taken. You and I have
been trying to teach other women to
bear up and bo brave when their men
were takon, and if I don't bear up my
self, I'd be ashamed to look any one of
them in tho eyes."
Ruth made a little mute motion but
said nothing.
"Look nt the way j'ou've suffered,"
Helen went on," and you've been more
than game."
"Oh. but Helen, everything that has
happened to me Is as nothing compared
to this thing that has happened to you."
Helen shook her hend. "I don't agree
with you. You had nerve enough to
plan to marry Jack Bond simply be
cause you had fancied yourself In loe
w 1th him once and had promised to mar
r.v him. I would rather have Jim dead
than to have him living and to bo mar
ried to another woman. Oh, I know how
much you love Scott Raymond, I loved
Jim, nnd I know."
"But t never lojcd Scott ns you have
r,vcd Jim," Ruth said softly, "not so
closely, not bo lntlmatelj"
"That's Just It, I shall always have
thnt to remember, t alwajn wondered
how those other women felt when they
received the notice of the death of some
dear nne. I used to be curious. T think
we nil are; we stand aside, and Instead
of pity we feel curiosity, nnd there Is
no response, that Is because we are alt
Innntelv selfish. I was c.verconfldent.
I felt that 1 was secure, that what had
happened to other people, even lo you
that time we heard about Scott, could
never happen to me. And yet here il
am. nnd Jim Is dead and there are
other girls In the world still happy and
secure In tho faith that everything will
be all right with him. Whj I used to
believe that I could neier bear up under
It, and so do thoso others. Now, I know
I can hear up under It, and so will
they when It happens to them. There's
something that cornea, Ruth, to help us;
1 can't exptaln It any other way.
I wonder why It happens to some
nnd not to others," Ruth said after a
time. Sho had reached forward and
held Helen's hand tightly In her own.
'Plenty of women have asked that
question 01 er and over during this
war." Helen returned. "Think ofuhe
horrible things women have suffered
over thero. the Indignities, the shame.
If they stopped to 'measure It all by
standards of right and Justice, where
would they be?"
"Think of the foolish way 1 acted
about Myra's going across," said Ruth,
lememberlng suddenly; "It makes me
feel so ashamed when you have been
so wonderful."
Helen's Up trembled suddenly like a
child's. Oh, but Ruth, I'm not brave.
really I'm not. I don't know how I'm
going to do without Jlmsy, It's Just
agony. I'm not ashamed of not being
brave, Ruth, only I don't want to r.1
bitter, and I've been fighting It over
since I had that letter from Washington."
