It was bright moonlight and the ttrst really balmy evening spring had brought. Soft and caressing, the air was, and off in the distance some where a hurdy-gurdy was grinding out. "I love you. I love, I do." "Oh, Charlie." she gurgled as she spied me. "There's an empty bench. Isn't it darling set way back in that cute little bunch of evergreen. How did everybody happen to miss It and leave it for us?" And before you could have said "three black cats" they were settled into one corner as i if they never intended to leave it.

Barclay SllL Barclay, thla Is Mrs. Margie Waverly." "Of whoirf I have often heard," said Mr. Sill, with the same Intonation that Dick always used when he spok* I to a woman he admired. I closed my eyes as I bowed, for I did not want | to look at Barclay Sill, but finally, when I did get the courage to raise my eyes to his, I found that he did not look at all like Dick, and ' breathed easier. "Margie Is buying a hat, Barclay, J and 1 came along to help her select lit" "Your taste has my unqualified ap proval." Again that voice thrilled me. I slm iPly had to look directly at the man to keep from crying out, "Dick, you have come back" when he spoke. This was said In just the cool tones that Dick would have used while ban tering with a pretty woman whom he I liked. "What are you doing in this shop?" demanded Donna; "you are not mar |ried. are you?" "Not guilty," he said, laughingly. > throwing up his hands; "how could I | marry after you broke my heart?" "Oh, please don't tell me that. Bar clay Sill, you know you are only try ing to make an impression on Mar gie." > "I thank you. Donna. I would like jmy feeling to be mutual. It makes things a little more even, you know." "I came in here, my dear, to ask [Why the hat that my sister ordered | last week had not been sent out." "Is your sister with you? And where are you staying?" "I think we are going to stay here for the summer. I have some Impor tant business that will keep me here, I think, all summer. "Of course, Donna, you will come and call on Lola, and perhaps Mrs. Waverly will come with you." How Shall a Poor It By DORO THE WOKLD'S HIGHEST I have received a letter from a woman who asks me to write an article on "How a poor man should treat his wife." I think that the poor man should treat his wife with more considera tion, tenderness and afTection than the rich man does his wife, because these are all that the poor man has to give to make her life worth living. (The rich man can atone, in a degree, | at least for his neglect and ill tem pers by presenting his wife with dia monds and automobiles, and lapping her in luxury, but the poor man can only make* his wife rich* in love, and if he withholds tfcis precious gift from her, she is beggared indeed. I think, to begin with, that the poor man should treat his wife with great sympathy. I think he should never forget that no lot in the world is so hard and so nerve frazzling as that of the woman who must do her own cooking, and washing, sweeping, sew ing and baby tending. Hard as the poor man works, his wife works ten times harder. Her! day's labor begin before he is up in | the morning, when she arises t<? pre-1 pare his breakfast, and do not endl until long after he is snoring at night.. There*? no union and eight-hour-day 1 for the wife and mother. And her la-i bor is the dull, monotonous round of the treadmill, cooking meals that are eaten na soon as cooked, ?washing' clothes that have to be washed next week, darning socks- that get holes in them with one wearing, cutting bread and butter for little mouths that are forever hungry. And this exhausting dreary labor is carried on to a cease less, maddening chorus of the chil dren's quarrels, and the baby shriek*, and calls for "Mo-o-ther." I think that if I were a poor man I should let my wife know how I sympathized with her, and how I felt that any woman who was fighting the battle of life so bravely, and valiant ly as she was. deserved about a ton of Iron crosses when they passed out medals for real heroism. I think that a poor man should show his wife great appreciation. I think that when he sees how far she has made his pay envelope go that ho might tell her what it means to a man to have a thrifty wife. I think that when he sits down to a mea! that she has spent hours in prepar ing he might praise the food instead of gobbling it down like a hungry dog. I think that when he observes the daily and hourly Sacrifices that his wife makes of her ease, her pleas ure and comfort, and of how she gives the best of everything to him, and the children he might tell her that in his eyes she is little less than an angel, and that every day he thanks God for having given her to him to bless his life. I think that a poor man should have great patience with his wife. He should realise that if the house la not always immaculate that it is next to impossible to keep two or three rooms neat and orderly, especially when there are a pack of children always cluttering about, and also there is a limit to the work that two hands, even the most industrious, can accomplish. And if the meals arc not always good he should realize that it takes a miracle worker to provide nourishing and appetizing food in these days of the high cost of living. And if the wife's temper has some times got a razor edge he should try to visualize to himself what it is to stand over a wash tub, or a hot stove with an aching head and a throbbing back, and every nerve shrieking aloud in agony until one is half mad with the strain of it all. I think that the poor man should try to be a companion to his wife, to cheer her up, and bring something bright and breezy into her life when he comes home at night. Her work has been done in the narrow confines of her home. His has been done in the big, outside world. Perhaps she has not seen a new face, or exchanged a word with any one but the children all day. He has been out witft other men who were Joking, telling stories, swapping ideas on the news of the day. So I think that the poor man. instead of burying himself with his pipe be hind his paper and smoking along in silence, should make a conscious ef fort to entertain his wife. He should relate to her the little budget of gos sip he has collected during the day, and listen with Interest to the things she has been thinking and help her to solve the problems that are troub ling her. I think that the poor man should give his wife all the pleasure that he can. He should not feel that because he earns the money he has a right to indulge himself in amusements while his wife stays shut at home. The price of a round of drinks, or a few games of pool will take the wife and kiddies to the movies, or on a cheap Sunday excursion, or a plcinc to the park, and give them something to think and talk about for weeks on end. ttor* Is S4t mojW? gven IN A NEW FRIEND. "I am not making many calls Just now," I said, and aa I did ao I won dered If Donna couM detect the trem or in my voice, "but I'll be very glad to meet any of Donna'e friends." ?'Then I may call. Mrs. Waverly?" he aeked, and there waa that eager quality In hie voice that I had alwaya loved In Dick's. Before I could an swer, Donna broke In, "Sure you can. Barclay. I want you to see Margie's home. I think It la the moat beauti ful In town." "And perhaps you would be Inter ested In Margie's baby," I said, de murely. "I think he la the moat beau tiful In town." "I am sure he Is If he looks like mother." answered Mr. Bill. "But he does not," I said, quickly. "He Is the image of his father." "Whoever he looks like, I want to see him, and you can depend that I will sure come." I almost made an audible exclama tion. for the man had used the word "sure" Just as Dick used to do It. Donna looked at me a little wonder Ingly and said. "Margie, are you 111?" "No, dear; why do you think so?" "Because your face has suddenly gone white and your voice sounds rather strained.'* "I'm feeling all light," X said, as Mr. 8111 bade us good-by. "Barclay Sill is one of the nicest men I have ever known." was Don na's comment as he left. "He has traveled all over the earth and he has loads of money. Kveryone who knows him has wondered why he never mar ried." "Perhaps he told the truth. Donna, when he said you had broken his heart." "Nonsense. my dear, he never had the faintest idea of falling in love with me. He used to tell me that no man could live with me peaceably. To tell the truth, we were always quar reling." (To Be Continued.) Ian Treat His Wife? THY DIX, PAID WOMAN WRITER. -? o for that, the streets are free. an<l many a poor woman would feel that she had had the treat of her life it only her husband would ask her to take a walk with him of an evening, and if he would stop before the Jew eler's and furrier's, and a milliner's J and dressmaker's windows, and pick out for her the lovely things that he would like to deck out in if only he j were rich. And if he would only tell her how much more beautiful she would look in them than any of the millionairesses who will adorn them selves in these fine feathers, she would feel as If he had given them to her. Above all. the poor man should tell his wife continually of his love for ' her, and make her feel that his af fection Is something real, living, warm, a well of tenderness that can never I he exhausted, a blessinc so great I that it makes riches and luxuries pale into Insignificance. | The poor man should wrap his wife i I In his love as in a real garment.

He should thank her over and over again for the sacrifices she raakea for him and his. and make her feel that she is doing the biggest and the finest work in the world, in making a home for her man, and raising up j a family of children to be useful men ? and women. j If the poor man would treat his wife J in this way theie would be no more complaining, dissatisfied, fretful worn | en whining at their lot, for their husbands would make their jobs worth while.

National and Local Meat Business The meat business of the country is conducted by various agencies? By small slaughter-houses in villages? By local Abattoirs or small Packing Houses in towns? both Using only a part of the local live stock supply and Furnishing only a part of the local demand for meat. These slaughtering and distributing agencies fill a well defined but necessarily restricted place in the distribution of the products of live stock. But only packers like Swift & Company, organized on a national scale, are able to under take the service that is more vitally important, involving An Obligation to the Producer To purchase for spot cash all the live stock the producer may send to market for slaughter. An Obligation to the Consumer To make available to every consumer, everywhere, in season and out, the full supply and variety of meat products, of the highest standard that the market affords.
