That vast distance from the portals of the convent to the worldly, life of the stage, this -clever young- woman with her spirited personality-cleared in one bound. Although her - -father was a Protestant minister; he believed in the convent training for his daugh" ter and so her education was com pleted at the Ursuline Convent at Mld- dletown, N. T. She was graduated in June, nursing quite a; determined idea to become a nun. In September, her uncle, James H. Wallack, a well known manager, took her with a big show that he was producing "to eev the world a bit." -ti--.--.t- :: ,: Well, I found that I liked the world and remained in it," she said.

"I very seldom study," replied Miss Barney. "I almost never take a part iut, ui txi9 lueouv. x just auauj u il, you know." ' ' Outside of her regular work Miss Barney says that she spends most of her time reading Maeterlink and her favorite of all his essays is the one on "The Value of Silence." Although she has been in-Bridgeport for several weeks now she hasn't found time to go beyond the centre of the city and her idea of this place is limited to what -she sees 'between the hotel and the theatre. t "But I love the people of Bridgeport anyway, even if I don't know anything of the -city," she said. - ."They have ibeen so generous with their applause to us and so kind in every way.

A BETHROTHED SCHOOL-TEACHER Dear Miss libbeyi I am a young woman, of twenty-six, a teacher In the public school, face to face with : a problem I am unable to solve. I am to be married at Easter. My -fiance is a, young physician just be ginning to practice,' consequently has his wealth all to acquire. My parents are greatly opposed to the match be-, cause of the condition of his finances. I will state I am the only-support of my folks. ."Would you advise a secret marriage that there might be no ob jection known, to' hinder me from stilt holding; my .position? - ' ' : - t PUZZLED TBAOHBR. In. many:' States the objection to a married woman as teacher in public schools has been overruled quite late ly.

There is a good looking conductor on It who always presses my arm In helping- me aboard or almost elips his arm about my waist in passing me when . the crowd of us are standing holding on to the' straps. Do you think he has formed a liking for me 'and is too -bashful -to let me know of it? All of my irl friends are Jealous of my good looks. . , ANNE. ! f CORNER FOR COOKS FRESH SALAD VEGETABLES. . Fresh salad vegetables, sweet corn, carrots, beets, etc which1 wilt easily will !be improved if washed, trimmed and wrapped in wet napkin ,and 'put near "the ice until serving time.

Take especial care about over-ripe or1 partially decayed fruit. It is the poorest economy -to "eat it is to save it," and much of summer illness is due to this unwise indulgence. A few -berries, or sliced tomatoes, or peaches, left over night will be on the verge of . decay before morning, and might be saved to .ke "out the next day's supply without danger by simp ly scalding- them while the dinner or supper dishes are being done; BAKED FISH "WITH CHEESE. , Make a dressing by putting two ta tolespoonfuls of butter into a sauce pan and frying slightly enough bread crumbs to fill the fish. Mix - with this finely chopped parsley .and a little sage if desired. Sew up the fish, sprinkle with butter, pepper, salt and (bake until done, basting often. When ready to serve, -slip the fish on to a platter, pour over it a cream sauce- and sprinkle over it a thick coating of grated cheese. - TOMATO CHEESE.

Tou ought to have been a writer of fiction, Anne, you have such a vivid imagination. Speaking ' frankly, I do not believe the handsome conductor is fascinated by , you or offers : you other than commonplace curtesy. When men fall 1-n love, the most modest-of them are not too bashful to seek to win the object of their affec tion. Do not indulge in a one-sided love dream. ' -.' "- - vflBl BRINGING YOUNG FOLKS TOGETHER "Now what is Love, I pray thee tell? It is that fountain and that well Where pleasure and repentance dwell; It is, perhaps, the sounding bell : That tolls all into heaven or hell; f'. Andthis is love, as I hear tell!" Where there are young folks in the family it should be a ibright and jolly household. Wben their - days are en gaged in employment, their evenings so far 'as . possible, should (be inter spersed with pleasures to upset the humdrum of existence. ; This not ;bnly applies to- the work ing girl still in her teens, but td , the woman , who has passed that youth mark ten years or - so ago. ' Life is happy, or : lonely, according to the plan one lays out. ' Monday evenings there is always, plenty to do. Tuesday even ings, why -not ,-tidy up the best room and entertain, two -or ' three of your friends who would only-be too pleased to have ai place to go? Wednesday evenings you could visit other friends, Thursday evening .is usually beau eve ning. -A girl could accompany her best young man to the , theatre or pass a nice pleasant evening at home, play ing some dance music, if the weather was stormy. Friday evening is good for her to go to the movies or to at tend some social affair, that is fun enlivening." Saturday evening is de voted to the marketing. Sunday, of course. Is church night with the afore mentioned beau accompanying her. ,If parents strive their , best to give their daughter a happy girlhood; they do much toward smoothing the rugged path which leads to her .future. She who has' a happy life of.it turns ' a smiling face to the world.-' If Jt is dull and lonely, t casts a shadow over her x- Parents or ' guardians- of young girls who deny them the pleasure of inviting company to their homes take from them their chief happiness and drive; them elsewhere for enjoyment. The girl, who fears to invite a young man to call upon her will be sure to blame those who - are responsible for it later on if she is doomed to single blessedness, v Young men and young women should have theirN ' opportunities - of being brought together in wholesome social affairs If it ' is expected that happy marriages will come from it. There is but one youth time in the life of a young man or young girl. It should be remembered by them ; as a rainbow of brightness . which time .can never efface. The good people of neighbor hoods who give little inexpensive af fairs to bring young folks together are but living their own youth over again in watching the budding courtship of youthful lads , and lassies. Pull the pretty bashful girls out of their shells; see that they join in the neighborhood frolics.'' Let no nice, single young man escape from responding to the invita tion. Toung folks must be brought to gether to look, love and wed.

His ambi tions were surely and positively ; de stroyed at one stroke. He mechanical ly picked up the letter and reread it. Had it been his death sentence it could not have affected him more cruelly: Dear: Nathaniel I scarcely know how to write to you about what has happened.

The man now a -mem- ; broke from-1 him as he realized that .the best years of his life were to come and go fruitlessly. His career, was ended. Despair lay heavy on his soul.

Their characters and natures unfolded to each other as some wonderful paint ings, each taking1 its own hues from the adoration of the other. ' In company with a noted Irish or ganizer O'Connell had spoken in many of the big cities of the United States and was everywhere hailed as a hero and a martyr to English tyranny. But he had one ever present handi cap a drawback he had never felt during the years of struggle preceding his marriage. His means were indeed small. .

The money soon disap peared, and then one by one the keep--sakes of her mother were parted with. But they never lost heart Through Jt all they were happy. All the poetry of O'Connell's nature, came uppermost, leavened, as it was, by the deep faith and veneration of his wife. This strangely assorted fervent man and ;?entle woman seemed to have solved the great mystery of happiness between two people. But the poverty chafed O'Connell not for himself, but for the frail, lov ing, uncomplaining woman who had ven her life into his care. tTo Be Continued.
