Let Us Refill Your Fern Dish JOHN RECK & SON A Among the cotton materials for tal' lored costumes there is nothing mort fashionable than arabardlne. It ii serviceable and comes In such a variety of patterns that one can have a sel ac tion of expensive or inexpensive -designs. Even the fastidious woman will he satisfied with the quality that costs about 50 cents a yard. It makes up1 well and has a charmingly dressy ef. feet- - - . - i Th eostnm Illustrated requires .46 yards of 54-inch material. One of the factors of great Importance n the de velopment of the design is cutting thS jacket. ' Fold the gabardine, smoothly so that the selvedge edges are even; then on the told place the back of the pattern, the triple "TTT" perforations touching the goods. If a little more fullness la . desired below the waist-line than-is al lowed in the pattern, the material may he slipped an inch or so beyond the pattern,, below the triple "TTT perfo rations. The collar and belt come next being arranged evenly on the length wise fold of the goods. To the left of the back,- place thi sleeve section, carefully arranging the . small "' perforations over a length wise thread of material. In he scheme ef economy the stay may be laid on the space created by the curve of the in side of the sleeve. . :. J The front is arranged on a length wise thread opposite the sleeve, the pocket strap and sleeve section follow - lng on the gabardine at the lower edge f the front. The cult and pocket, are cut crosswise, but on a lengthwise thread, as is also the cuff strap. If a round line is preferred at the front, in- stead of the pointed effect, this can ba easily arranged by following the length of the back of the Jacket.'

Since the widespread publication of the Rogers scandal that unhappy ep isode in which a New York lawyer di vorced one wife, wedded another, and In short order threw her over for an afiinity I have received an avalanche of letters asking me to denounce the term- "wife," as applied to the third woman in the tangle. Thes letters are mostly from society women, hon orable' wives and loyal mothers. I may as well strike right at - the root of this bitter feeling in the hearts Of these wives. Who will say that they are not justified in their insistence that the name -of, wife should not be applied to the jwoman who has' delib erately given herself v to man's lust withoat - troubling- herself as to the holy bond of matrimony not being en tered into? The term ldve wife, when applied to un anmarried efmale, is a gross insult; an indignity heaped upon the respectable women who. bear with honor and -dignity the name "wife." Webster's definition of wife reads: "The lawful consort of a .man ; a wo man who is united to a man in wed lock." It is infamous to give to a wo man who is wilfully unchaste that sa cred name. Call them- "passion com panions," "love thieves:" anything: but never give damaged affection the nane of that which is pure and spot- less. -; - ,., : Three women, whom the world knows of, have come under this man's spell. Some writers have put forth the query: Why. did not the first wife give him up when she found his heart had gone from her to another? It is very heroic . to think.- of what other women . can do under such circum stances. But if it were 'their own case they would know it would toe quite as easy , to tear .out the living, beating heart from their bosom as to resign the idol they worshipped to another woman's arms. Because some other woman comes along and takes a fancy to what we have is it. just and right to relinquish one's claim to another? If the wife whom he" wedded was not a "love wife" by - God's 'approval, what was she? The : man wooed and won her innocent heart in all its girlish purity, reverence and faith. She give3 up her . best years, to. him.. When he casts her off for a passion companion, can he restore to his wife those years with their lost . possibilities, which have, ended in loss of love, ruined faith,1 and outlook of a desolate fu ture? With all this staring her in the f ace ' weighing down her tortured heart, what is there r left for her of happiness, peace and love? She is the first,-and only love wife until the day she dies.

Address Miss Libbey, 916 President Street, . Brooklyn, N. Y. ' ' ' '.:v. AN UNPOPULAR PRESENT. Dear Miss Libbey; . I recently caught a large owl. j 1 would .like to wake a present of it to a young lady whom I much admire. Do you think it would prove acceptable to her? . , R. D. E. . She might-accept it out of courtesy to you, but it Would be a mighty dis mal object for her to, have to look at. Consider, too, ithe care' it would be and the danger in getting to close while attending to the unwelcome . fright. Couldn't ' you . give her a dainty little canary she could ceddle and ' love' in stead, of the tooter? Owls in one's vi cinity at night can make life unbear able. I fear she would soon set it at large again. . A FLIRT'S ENGAGE- - , : J . : MENT RING. Dear Miss Libbey: , ; . I have been calling quite often of late on a very pretty girl who is some what of a flirt;' that is, she encourages- three of us fellows to such, an extent not one of . us knows exactly where he is at. She has put on an en gagement ring which none-of us has given her. ;Do you think she intends marrying? . 0 ., .- . , 1 ' : " -. JACK. . "Yes, wearing an engagement ring indicates that a young lady -intends marrying, but in the case of a flirt it does not indicate that she itends mar rying the one who gave it to , her. Ask her to be frank with you, telling you which of the three she prefers, that you may either' continue calling with a view to matrimony,' or drop out of the race. , - ' ' , . while Miss Bohler and her violin will add strength to the. singing of the hymns. .

Mead Company (Continued.) O'Farrell at last took it on himself to get the dog ashore. He would wrap him up in some sailcloths, and then he .would carry Michael outside the gates when the customs authorities had examined her few -belongings. When they reached Liverpool O'Far rell was as good as his word, though many were the anxious moments they had as one or other of the customs officers would eye the suspicious pack age P'FarreU carried so carelessly un der hia r.rQ. ' At the dock a distinguished looking gentleman -- came on board and after some considerable difficulty succeeded in locating Peg. He" was a well dress ed, sbf t speaking, vigorous man p f or-ty-fiye. He Inspired Peg with an In stant dislike by his somewhat authori tative' and pompous manner. He in troduced himself as Mr. Montgomery Hawkes, the legal adviser for the Klogsnortn estate, and at once proceed ed to take charge of Peg ae'a, matter of course. ' ..' , ' Poor Peg felt ashamed of her' poor little,' bag, containing just a few changes of apparel, and her little pa per bundle. She was mortified when she walked down the gangway with J;he prosperous looking lawyer while extravagantly dressed people with piles of luggage dashed here and there endeavoring to get it examined. . ' But Mr. Hawkes did not appear to notice Peg's shabbiness. On the con traryhe treated her and her belongings as though she were the most fashion able' of fine ladies and her. wardrobe the most complete.: ' ; Outside the gates she found O'Far rell waiting for her, with the precious "Michael struggling to free himself from his coverings.. Hawkes soon had a cab alongside. He helped Peg into it; then she stretched out her arms, and O'Farrell opened the sailcloths, ' and out sprang Michael, dusty and dirty and blear eyed, but, oh, such a happy, fussy, affectionate, relieved little ca r nine when he saw his beloved owner waiting for him. fie made one spring at her, much; to the lawyer's dignified amazement, and began to hark at her and lick her face and' hands and jump on. and roll over and over upon Peg in an excess of joy at' bis release." Peg pffered O'Farrell an American dollar. She had very little left," O'Farrell , indignantly refused', to take it. ... ' . "Oh. but ye tnust, "indade ye must!" cried Peg in distress. , "Sure I won't lie aisy tonight if ye don't. But for you poor "Michael . here might have been on that place ye spoke of that quarantine, whatever it is.' , Xe, saved him from that And. don't despise it because if s an American dollar. Sure it has a value all ove thewurrld. An', besides, I have no' English money." Poor Peg pleaded that O'Farrell should take it He bad been so nice to her all the way over. N " . ' Hawkes interposed skillfully, gave O'Farrell 5 shillings, thanked him warmly for his' kindness to Peg and her dog; returned the dollar to Peg, lel her say goodby to the kindly sail- , or. told the cabman to driye to a cer tain railway station, and in a few sec onds they were bowling along and Peg had entered a new country and a. new life. They reached the railway sta tion, and Hawkes procured tickets, and in half an hour they were on a train bound fpr the north of England. ? During the journey Hawkes volun teered no Information. , He bought her papers and magazines and offered ber.j lunch. . This Peg : refused. She said the ship had not agreed with her. She did not think she would want food for a long time to come." . r - After awhile, tired out with the rush and excitement of the ship's arrival. Peg fell asleep. In a few hours "they reached their destination. ' Hawkes woke : her . and told her she was at her journey's end, He again hailed a cab., told the driver where to go and got In with Peg, Mi chael and her luggage. In the cab he handed Peg a' card and told ber to go to the. address written on it and ask the people there to allow her to wait until be Joined her. He bad a business; call to make in the town. He wouiu oe as short a time as possible. She was just to tell the people that she had been asked to call there and wait After the cab had gone through a: few streets it stopped before abigi building. Hawkes got out told the cabman where to take Peg, paid him and. with some Cnal admonitions to Peg, disappeared through the swing doors of the town hall. The cabman 'took the wondering Peg along until he drove up to a very hand some - Elizabethan house. There he stopped. Peg looked at the name on the gateposts and then at the name on the card Mr. Hawkes had given ber. They were the same. Once more she gathered up her belongings and her dog and passed In through the gate posts and wandered up the long drive oh a tour of inspection. She. walked through the paths dividing rose beds until she came to some open windows. The main entrance hall of the house PE G 0'MY i HEART; By J. Hartley Manners seemed to be hldtlen away somewhere amid the tall old trees. '. . . Peg made straight for the open win dows and walked into the most won derful looking room she had ever seen. Everything in it was old and massive It bespoke centuries gone by In every detail. Peg held her breath as she looked around ber. Pictures and tapestries stared at her from the walls. Beautiful old vases were arranged in cabinets. The carpet was deep and soft and stifled all sound. Peg almost gave an ejaculation -of surprise at the wonders of the room, when she sud denly became conscious that she was not alone in the room, that others were there and tljat they were talking. She looked in the direction the sounds came from and saw, to her as- tonlsbment, a man with a woman In his arms. He was speaking to her in a most ardent manner, aney were partially concealed by some statuary. ' Peg concluded at once that she had Intruded on .some marital: scene at which she was not desired, so she in- . etantly sat down with her back tc them. She tried not to listen, but some of the words came distinctly to her. Just as she was becoming very uncomforta ble and had half made up her mind to leave the room "and find somewhere else to watteshe suddenly beard herself addressed and in no uncertain tone of voice. . There were Indignation, but- ' prise and anger in Ethel's question: "How long "have you been here?" Peg turned around and saw a strik ingly handsome, . beautifully dressed young lady glaring1 down at her. Her manner was haughty'm the extreme. Peg felt most unhappy as she looked at her and. did hot answer immedi ately. . 'CHAPTER XIV. , . Peg In England.' OW long have you been here?" again asked. Ethel of Peg. ""Sure I only came in this minnifc," said Peg innocently and with a little note of fear. She was not accustomed, to fine looking, splendidly dressed young ladies Ilk Ethel. "What do you want?" demanded the young lady. ' . "Nothin"." said Peg reassuringly. "Nothing J" echoed Ethel, growing angrier every moment "Not a thing. I was just told to wait" said Peg. "Who told you?; ' "A. gentleman." 'replied Peg. "What gentleman?" asked Ethel iSharply and suspiciously. "Just a gentleman." Peg, after fum bling nervously in her pocket produced Peg Bent Down Over Michael. the card Mr. Hawkes had given her, which Michael immediately attempted ' to take possession of. Peg snatched it , aw'ay from, the dog and handed it to the young lady. ' "He told me to wait there I" Ethel took the card irritably ana lead: ' " 'Mrs. Chichester, Regal Villa.' And what do you want with Mrs. Chiches ter?" she asked Peg, at the same time looking at the shabby clothes, the hun gry looking dog and the soiled parcel.
