I Suffer the Terror of Be ing Watched and Followed and Learn Fear. The theft of the ring proved to me that one net of conspirators, ' searching for the location of the sunken jewels, had traced the clew from the "Queen of Smiles" to me. j The return of the ring. together! with Jim's letter, reminded me that 1 might be in constant danger. Now, that the thief of a week ago had learned by personal investiga- j tion that the chart was not in the ring, it occurred to me that the very j safest hiding place for that chart was back in the ring. I took the wee fold of thin, tough paper from beneath my pincushion, shut it in its j lapis casket and went down to din- , ner. j Just as the dessert was placed on the table, in rushed Eloise, white as j ever she could have been when she . first faced the Hun beast four years ago. "F'ardonnez-moi!" she wailed. "L'n voleur! L"n hommi'?en haut? dans 1 le boudoir de Mine. Jeanne' J'ai peur! Bien sur. madame. Jt l'ai vu cet homme en Belgique!" The butler, not at all understand ing what Kloise had cried out to | him as she ran down stairs, had fol lowed her into the dining room. | "A burglar!" I translated for! Daddy. "In my room!" I had ^ hunch as to what that j burglar wanted there, and I would have followed the men upstairs to! see him. if possible, but mother j called me back. Kloise had col-1 lapsed in a heap on the floor.

As I ' Should Husbands and Wiv By DOrtCr THE WORLD S HIGHEST One of the curious reactions of j matrimony seems to be that, in the great majority of cases, it dulls the j brightness and whithers the charm of those who enter into it. Some fine and illusive quality of mind and spirit, some airy, fairy grace of soul appears to be crushed out by domesticity so that you rarely find a man and a woman who are as attractive after marriage as they were before. This is true even of those who iare happily married and who have | no black disappointment to wkrp ! their outlook on life, or kill their ; aspirations. Except in the solid, plodding, work-a-day virtues, after I marriage the great majority of peo- j pie stand still, or if they progress, j they progress backwards, as an : Irishman might say. Before marriage John was an om- , niverous reader and nothing Was more interesting than to get him ( talking about new books and au- | thors. Meet him five "years after; marriage, and he will tell you that! he doesn't keep up with current literature, that he only has time' for the newspapers and the stock j market. Or perhaps John was a i marvelous raconteur who could tell j a story, or do a bit of pantomime as well as any headline vaudevillian, j but a few years of matrimony ex- j tinguishes John's sense of humor j and puts his little talent entirely! out of commission. Before marriage Mary played and 1 sang almost like a professional, j Thousands of dollars and years of j time had been spent on her musical , education. Ten years after mar- i riage Mary can't play the Maiden's | Prayer, and when you ask for a ; little music she says. "Why I haven't touched the piano in. years ajid I don't believe I have sung any thing but lullabies since my first baby was born." When you exclaim in horror at her having let her talent rust out she says apologetically that John doesn't care for music. When you | askk John why he doesn't read, as J he used to, he says that Mary isn't interested in books and likes to play cards of an evening, or that he has given up telling stories be cause Mary thought he made a buf foon of himself. Neither husband nor wife intended 10 block the other's development, but they did it just as effectually by their indifference as they could have done by a malicious plan. For the finer j flowers of life must have the warm f-un of appreciation shine upon them if they are to grow and flourish, and this congenial temperature they sel dom find at home.

(To be continued.) es Develop Each Other? rHY DIX PAID WOMAN WRITER the great problem of bow to I** happy though married, husbands and wives j would not be guilty of the crime of | hindering each other's development iti j any line. They would perceive the j importance of Introducing new inter ests new enthusiasms, new sympa ihieB into their lives to take the place | of the old ones of which time is bound j to rob them. t That would make a woman encour age her husband to develop every pos sible power of mind and body, to use his talents, to study, to learn, to grow. Instead of sinking into a mere money making machine or an automaton that worked on a shuttle between home and offlcc. and has no knowledge or inter est outside of the shop. It would make the man encourage | his wife to keep up her little accom- j nlishments. to practice her music, to keep up her painting and drawing, to pursue whatever studies she had j taken up before marriage, to even go In for clubs and movements If she has executive ability, or to become a champion tennis or golf player if sh? has athletic tendencies. He would help her develop whatev< facility- she had into a faculty instead of letting her degenerate into a flabby, peevish, aimless creature whose whole j horizon Is bounded by her own home and a bargain sale. Nothing would do more to eliminate j (he dullness of married life than for , husbands and wives to try to help! each other to make the best of them- | selves, instead of praying for grace j and patience to stand each other as they do now. Indeed, it is the duty of hus bands and wives to try to develop each other. If a man marries a girl who has had little opportuni ties of education and who is not bookish, instead of giving up his j own reading and sinking to her plane of illiteracy, he shoud read to her. talk to her about books and try to get her interested in them. He should try to life her up In stead of letting her be a millstone about his neck to pull him down. Men are muck to blame when they have blockhead wives, for there are very few wives who will not re-i spond to their husband's interest | In their development, and who are! not willing to work and study if > their husbands desire them to. Of course it must be admitted that when husbands and wives un- j dertake to correct each other's faults they tread on dangeroua j ground, because they strike a death , blow at vanity.

"The Bachelor (ilrl in Washlngton and How She Lives." last night. Dr. Gordon declared that the great- I est sacrifice the girl alone In Wash- J ington had been forced to make was the surrendering of her rersonal pri vacy?being obliged to room with orie or more other girls. "Every girls should have a room to herself," Dr. Gordon said, "in which to develop her soul. One hour a day alone at least is essential to the formation of a character, and every girl is entitled to that one hour." The room should contain an altar. ] the speaker said, and a crucifix, with i a picture or two and a bookcase. "Have a picture," he sfcid. "of your . ideal, either a hero from history or j from fiction. Let the picture be of j Napoleon, saying farewell to his be- j loved France, or of Abraham Lin- j coin. "Perhaps if you come from the South you would choose the picture of Robert E. Lee. I doubt if any girl j could have an ignoble thought with the gentle face of Lee always before j her." On the walls of the girl's room ; should hang the picture of her father j and mother. "I believe." the speaker said, "that j father means as much to the girl as mother means to the boy." i The bookcase should hold a dozen j books or so, of the fiction and poetry j the girl loves best, in clear type, but j small enough so that the entire con tents of bookcase shelves could be 1 carried in her suitcase. Above all. he declared, the girl should keep a note- j book, where she could paste her favor- j ite bits of poetry rind prose and pic tures of her favorite heroes ana heroines.

MO.NDAV, DECEMBER .TO, 101S. This is a fortunate day. according to astrologv. Mars. Neptune and the Sun rule strongly for good. It is a day especially fortunate for physicians, nurses and all who bring comfort to humanity. Soldiers have a direction of the stars making for far-reaching bene fits. Industrial enterprises, profes sional opportunities and business openings that will be provided for thers will lead to many important changes in methods and policies. The stars seem to forecast that through Mars will be established Cus toms and reforms, perhaps suggested by foreign service, but still novel and radical. This is a lucky day for making plans as foresight is believed to be imparted by the planets. ^ islons that present themselves to the mind dur ing this configuration may be real izeil. according to the seers. Persistenty the stars are read as presaging some remarkable change in oil production. This may be the fore shadowing <4 a substitute, but as tiologers declare that cheaper prod ucts will be obtainable. This is a favorable sway for all gov ernment officials and heads of facto ries or large industries. Neptune and the Sun are so aspect ed that far vision and wise foresight are indi cated. During this planetary government search for positions or employment of any sort should be successful, mak ing for right placing and future con tentment. Again co-operation is foreshadowed as one of the great movements that will make the new era. Occurists declare that while the Day of Judgment has ended there will be in the dawn of the new day much to hinder progress toward a millennium in which harmony and justice rule. French will be much spoken as a fashionable fad. the seers declare, but the French Influence will be re\ealed in many ways that touch the life ot the American people. Persons whose birthdate it is have the forecast of an active year with appreciable fiain in business affairs. Children born on this day will prob ably be talented, studious and indus trious. These subjects of Capricorn usually care more for intellectual than for financial pursuits. (Copyright.
