It Is a good rule for all women
?but it Is positively Tltal for mar
ried women to aay always look
your best.
If a married woman will always
look her best when hubby come?
home, he will alwyas come home!
Seriously, It is the duty of every
woman to study her personality, her
figure, her type of beauty, and dress,
walk, and act up to it If you h-vc
not good taste, it will pay you to
hire someone who has it to advise
you on what to wear and what not
to wear. A good dressmaker, an
Intelligent hair-dresser, and wise
selection of underthings as well as
overthings will do more to make
your home an attractive place for
the man who occupies it with you
than anything else I know of.
There is on? formula that I know
of, which If every married woman
would adopt, might create a great
deal more happiness than exists to
day. It is this: Always dress for
your husband as you did when he
was your lover. No matter whether
you are very beautiful or very

j Among the most Interesting are a

"What way?" asked the bunny.
"What do you meanT"
"Oh. don't go hopping off looking for

this Is now April, and we will have
rain showers almost any time. If

So Uncle Wiggily, after telling

And. Just as he said that. Unale
Wiggily felt something hit him on the

"Ha. ho!" cried the bunny. "Maybe
that's the Pipsisewah throwing little

But it was something wet that had

T*he rain came down harder and j

"I must look for a place to stay un- j

I were hack in my hollow stump ?
Just then, off through the trees, he |
saw a little house. It was not a very
nice looking place, but it was better
to be there than out in the rain.
Uncle Wiggily hopped toward it,
opened the door and hopped in.
And. all curled up in one corner of
the little honae, which was made of
corncobs, was a sleepy old cat gentle
man?no relation at all .to the lively
Joie. Totnmie and Kittle Kat.
"Oh, Mr. Towlie. may I stay in your
house until the shower passes?'' asked
t'ncle Wiggily.
"You may stay, and welcome,'* said

And. truly enough, the roof did leak.
A bl^ stroam of water was running
through a hole, and making a big
puddle on the floor, so T'ncle Wiggily
could atop nowhere without getting
"Why don't you flx the leak in your
roof. Mr. Yowlie?" Uncle Wiggily
asked the cat.
"Oh, well, when it rains I can't gpt

docpn't rain it doesn't leak, go doesn't

"Oh. but it Is very wet here!" cried
Uncle Wiggily "I know what I'll do

water run in that. Then the floor will

So that's just what he did. Hi? big.

the leak a? weM as a dish pa ? could
have done, and when the hat was full j
Uncle Wiggily emptied it and let lt|

And pretty soon the rain stopped,

The Kissed and the Unkissed
Listen, girls!
Did you read that story In the
pr.pers about a Boston man who had
kissed a girl, to whom he had been
engaged, every day for twenty-two
years, and then oleserted her and
married a siri whom he had never
kissed at all?
Of course he did. It's human na
ture, and especially is it masculfnr
nature, to get weary of the thing?
we have and know too we'll, and
to yearn for the thin^- that vv <
haven't got, and that we have to
struggle to get.
This man who had kissed the girl
every day for twenty-two y.-ais had
sampled every possil-le variety of
kisses that she carried in sto.ck.
The clinging kiss, the rapturous
kiss, the wet salt-tear kiss, tho
perfunctory kiss, the kiss of for
giveness, the welcome kiss, the good
bye kiss, thi ham-and-eegs kiss. He
had tasted them all and they tad
cloyed on his palate.
What he craved was a ki.s with
a brand new flavor, something
novel, piquant, with a thrill to it,
and he married the girl who made a
wedding ring the price of such a
kiss instead of hsndlng it over the
counter free, gratis, for nothing.
There's food for thought in this
little story of the Boston man and
his jilted sweetheart, girls, and it
has a moral that each of you will
do well to ley to heart. And the
moral is this:
Every man takes a girl at her
own valuation, and then some. If
she hold? herself high, he regards
her as something very pro cious and
to be valued and treated accord
ingly. But If she holds herself
cheaply, ho* discounts her valuation,
and holds ht ? more cneaply still.
snd his conduct towards her is col
ored by the contempt that we all
feel for a common article.
You see. men know that they hav*; ,
no tasta and measures by which to
tell the worth of a woman, but they
think that the woman huff? W musi
know what hhe is worth, and so
they accept the price tas ?he writes
tor her-Mf on its face.
This is why, quite aside from any
sense of delicacy or modesty, a girl
is foolish to permit any familiarities
from men. By doing so she take?
heraelf out of the fine, desirable. Just
beyond-reach class, and puts herself
don m tn the commonplace, every-day.
ordinary, takc-me-or-leave-me-ae-you
please class. And we all know which
ciaj?s most fires our fancies.
Also the girl who permits familiari
ties from men shows that she does
not know how to play the game. She
ignores the ha.?ic fact that man is
born a huntsman, and that the harder
his quarry is tn catch the more ar
dently dO'^s he pursue it- There Isn't

The Amazing Story of
Maria Botchkareva
Leader of the Russian Battalion ot Death
In the summer of 1917. Maria
Botchkareva formed the ?attalion
of Death, a woman's fighting unit
in the Russian army, and thus a
peasant girl stepped Into the in
ternational hall of fame. This is
her story. In earlier installments
she told of her childhood, of the
brutalities of her married Hie, her
attempt to commit suicide to es
cape a cruel husband,wind her fltial
success In evading him. She told
of her many molestations at the
hands of officials, soldiers and how
?he was trapped in a house of
shame by promises of work. Rh?
escaped from this house but im
mediately returned when the police
made advances to her instead of
sffordlng protection In desperation
she attempted suicide a second
time. A man intervened. She grew
to like him and they lived together
by civil agreement. She lived hap
plly with him for three year? when
a revolutionist, a friend of her sec
ond husband, sought refuse at
their home
Yasha proceeded to remove our bed
from Its corner He next removed a
board in the lower part of the wall,

The police were there' My heart was

while Yasha opened the door. He had!
previously given me his revolver to

On the outskirts of the town a
policeman, emergine from some dive
In a semi-Intoxicated state, observed
Yasha driving by. He attached little
significance to the tact at the time,
but when he reported for duty In the
mornlnr and learned of the fugitive,
lie told that he hsd seen Yasha leave
town with a stranger. I was doing
some washing when the house was
again surrounded by police.

were In IrtruUk.
At the Central Prieon I received
another ahock. I wouldn't be admit
ted without a- -paas. I did not know
that It was necesary to have a pass.
? ?mied But the warden In chante,
a dried-up old man. with a flowing
white beard, angrily ?houted. "No"
>To*" at me. "Get out of here. It*?
against the law; you can't be admit
ted. Go to Irkutak and come back
with a pate* and ?e will let you In."
"But I traveled 1.000 t*er*t?? to
see him.** I pleaded. In team. "I am
worn out and hungry*? Allow me to
?ee him luat for five minute??only five
?hort minute?. I? there no mercy in
your heart for a weak woman?"
With thia I broke down and became
hysterical. The harsh little warden
and hi? iseiatant? In the office became
frightened Ta? h a wa? brought in for
a brief reunion. The few minutes
th?t we were allowed to p*?.? in each
other'? presence gave us new strenjrth.
He told me of his experience?, and I
of mine to him. nnd we decided that
? go to the governor general. Knia
xev. to entreat hi? mercy.
The day wa? on the decline when I
started back to the railway station.
I reached the r.ver by twilight and
managed to catch a ferry to the Island
But It wa? derk when ? landed there
?nd I lost my w?y trying to cro?? the
Island to the other ferry.
I waa cold, hungry, exhausted. Sly
feet were ?wollen from wandering for
?everal hour? In a fr?ntic effort to
find the right path When at la#t I
got to the other aide It must have been
about midnight I aaw the light?
? acroas the water and called with all
my remaining ?trength for the ferry.
But there waa no reaponse. Only the
