Man has learned to defeat nature 5n many ways. He walks on the bot tom of the sea, soars above the high est mountain peaks, lights the mid night to rival noonday. iiut in love he remains what Nature Intended him to be a dupe. Love blinds him to the flaws in the beloved for a long time before he complains something like this: "My wife Is artifical." This parti cular letter comes from a husband of a year. "1 have to look twice to find the dainty sweet-tempered girl I married." Then follows half a column of criticism which might have been dictated by Adam. The wife is "to blame," the young .husband hon estly believes. But he is wrong-. Nature Is at fault for the bride's sad slump. This is a scientific fact and if It could be impressed upon the minds of lovers. It would save a considerable part of the first-year domestic mis ery. The period of courtship is a period of sex manifestations. A girl in love will powder the lily and apply rouge to the rose. A man will parade his opinions and work wonders with his voice, causing it to thrill with emo tionbut never to betray impatience. Both act unconsciously. The girl Little Stories BY THORNTON CHATTERER WORKS HARD. When Chatterer the P.ed Squirrel had left the Green Korest because of his terrible fear of Shadow the Wea sel he had been fat. At least he had been fat for him. All through the pleasant fall, while he had been gathering bis supply of nuts and seeds to store away for the winter, he nad eaten all he could hold, and had filled his red coat out until it actual ly felt too tight. But now that same red coat hung too big for him. Yes, sir. Chatterer had grown so thin that his coat actually looked too big for him. And ha was growing thinner every day. ; You see, most of the food had been collected and stored away long ago, and Chatterer had to run about a great deal and hunt very hard to find enough to eat day by day, while as for filling a new storehouse, that seemed impossible. Still. Chatterer kept trying, and day by day he man aged, to add a little to the supply of seeds. But It was pretty poor fare at best. There' were no plump nuts or tasty pine seeds such as filled his "storehouses In the Green Forest, be cause no nut or pine trees grew near the Old Orchard, and Chatterer didn't dare go back to the Green Forest for fear that Shadow the "Weasel would find him and track him to hia new home. So he patiently did hia best to find food close at hand. But it was discouraging, terribly discouraging, to work from sunup to sundown, run- nlnr hcr mnninir there. . riinninar everywhere, until he was so tired ha was ready to drop, and knowing all the time that the snow might come any day and bury what little food there was Chatterer the Red Squirrel there was. Oh, those were hard days for Chatterer the Red Squkldel, very hard days. Indeed! One morning he started very early and made a long journey by way of the old stone wall and the rial fences down to Farmer Brown's cornfield. Of course. Farmer Brown had long figo taken away the corn, but in doing It a great many grains had been scat tered about on the ground, half bur ied in the ground where they had been trodden on, hidden under leaves and among weeds and under the piles of stalks from which the ease had i been stripped. For the first time for days Chatterer felt something like cheer In his heart as he scurried about hunting for and finding plump ' vellow grains. First he ate all he could hold, for he saw that then there would be plenty to take home. Then he stuffed his cheeks full, scrambled up on the rail fence, and started for his new home in the Oid Orchard. "It is a terrible long way to have to carry all my supplies," thought he as he sat up on the top of a post to rest. "I don't see how I ever can do Had your iron today?

The man is no more responsible than the western sky for Its glory when the sun is setting. These are little bits of nature, but one may mean rain to morrow and the other a torrid day. Science has proved that a fuller crimson comes upon the robin's breast in the mating season. But science forgets to say that the brightness of the bird's plumage does not keep its gay promise. It lasts only half the summer. In the same way, the unconscious sex manifestations of lovers imply twice as much. They are a kind of Involuntary lying. The bride does not stay as lovely as she seemed. Perhaps her first baby steals her freshness. The man becomes irritable. Perhaps his new responsibility for the support of a woman and a babe worry him to dis traction. One ego complains, "I deserve a better fate." The other ego murmurs, "I've missed something." Each blames the other when neither is altogether blamable. The great hope is that they will stay married far better than they do when' they comprehend better the little tricks by which nature conceals her purpose, the clever schemes of nature which science is constantly revealing to mankind. For Bedtime W. BURGESS It Looked to Him as if That Rail Was Hollow Part Way it. 'Well, I certainly can't if I sit here all day!" With that he jumped down to the rail below him. He was half way across when he noticed a crack In It. It looked to him aa if that rail was hollow part way. A great idea cam to him. His eyes grew bright with excitement. He ran the length of the rail and back again, looking for an opening. There was none. Then very slowly and carefully he worked his way back, stretching his head over so that he could look underneath. Almost over to the next post he found what he had so hoped to find. What was it? Why, a knot hole. Yes, sir, a knot hole that opened right into the hollow in the rail. It wasn't quite big enough -for Chatterer to squeeze through, but that didn't trouble him. He emptied the corn from his cheeks, and then he went to work with those sharp teeth of his, and in a little while, a very little while, that knot hole was plenty big enough for Chatterer to slip through. His eyes snapped with pleasure as he explored the hollow rail. "I'll make this my storehouse!" he cried. "I'll fill it full of corn, and then when I am hungry in the winter I can run down here and fill up. It will be a lot better than trying to carry the corn up to the Old Orchard." And with that Chatterer began the work of filling the hollow rail with corn. NEXT STORY DROPS A HINT.

The snow swirled and drifted in the street, but John Aldrich waa not con scious of any discomfort as he bent his head to the wind and more care fully held the bundle in his arm. "I'm a fool, a damn fool!. But I couldn't help it!" be said aloud as he stumbled a bit and turned cold, not because of the weather, but be cause of the fear that he would drop the precious parcel. John had been on his way home, a bit later than usual, tired almost to nausea, when in the window of a second-hand shop he had spied a piece of china. A plate, small to the cas ual observer, insignificant. If only the shopkeeper were ignorant of its value ! John's blood leaped at the thought, lie was in the shop the plate in his hands almost without volition of his own. He tried to keep his voice steady, casual, when he asked the price. But it trembled a bit in spite of all be could do. It is hard for a connoisseur to hide his greed. As hard as it is for a miser to conceal his greed for gold. The price put upon the plate was ridiculously low, a mere song com pared with its worth. John's blood raced as he counted out the sum. and with his priceleaa bit of china haat ened from the place. He was hapov for a bit. happy with the happiness of a collector who has stumbled upon something .to add to his collection something wonoenui To one who understood nothing of tho fure of that bit of china John's delight would have seemed almost fiwtiish.

It is a won derful Diece." he added in an apolo getic tone that in some way made him angry at himself. Then: "It is too bad a night to go out. anyway." "The wealhir makes no difference when one rides." Marcia snapped. She was really disappointed. It made her ill-natured. John waa carefully unwrapping his purchase, handling it delicately as on bandies precious things. "How much did you pay for that thing?" Marcia asked as he held It up for her to look at, drawing her atten tion to its beauty, telling her why it was valuable, relating to her in a few words the history of that parti cular kind of pottery. "And you paid twenty dollars for that thing'" she exclaimed, "when only to-day I denied myself a new hat that cost Just that! You pretend you want me to economise, then waste perfectly good money on a common china platel" "But it isn't a common china plate," John replied, ''and Marcia. it i tha very first piece I havo added to my collection since we have been mar ried." He quietly laid it aside and went in to dinner. As ahe followed Marcia said: "Well, you can have your old plate ni I shall nav mat. nat. i ii can up the milliner the first thing In the morning and tell her to send it around, and send the bill to your of fice. Mr allowance won't pay for it! I have to go without hats while you buy china to put in that cabinet. I hate the stuff! It looks so cheap to have china in a room where one re ceives company." "I will move the cabinet into the bedroom, if you wish," John said wearily. "It would be worse In there!

"- Had Marcia only known that among what ahe called trash were bits of china, plates, vases, etc., that John had paid many times twenty dollars for she would have been still more indignant. He had bousht them ; before their marriage. If ahe had : known that he had gone without! clothes, given up outings, lived cheap ly so that he might indulge his love for china she would have thought him crazy. But she knew nothing of this, although she had known in a vague way that before they married he had spent a good deal of time getting his collection together. "Remember. I shall have that hat, and you'll pay for it." Marcia once again remarked as, after dinner w over, John unlocked his cabinet and deposited his precious plate within; John mad no reply. For once again his conscience smote him. He had been extravagant to buy it. chaji- as it was. when Marcia demanded much. (To Be Continued.)
