The power of Beauty I remember yet" The beautiful girl has hey Joys and, alas, she has her woes. She . cannot help calling forth the admiration of men, and because of this she often arouses the antagonism of plainer wo men. Feminine vengeance should not be directed against the woman fair of face. She was not consulted when the Divine Power gave her the features she possesses. If it could find a tongue would the humble . daisy growing by the wayside rave at the beautlufl wild rose, loved by the , bird . and the bee rioting crimson in the eunshine' for being the fairer. - Plain women delight in endeavoring to instill into .tlie minds of men that most beautiful vrnen are flirts or co quettes. This is as unkind as. it is un true. Nor are they vain .or hard : to please in eelecttng v the "" right lover. Beautiful women know full .well that charms axe fleeting, those who hope to wed feel more keenly than most of their sisters the need Of selecting the lover wo will care for", tjem If their beauty takes- wing;; selecting the man who will appreciate their- goodness of heart, sensibility, sterling worth apart from the pinkness of cheeks, the sheen of hair, or the brightness of her: "eyes, i Beauty In woman is needed to show the world that she is the most wonder ful the most to be admired of all Eds 1 handiwork, and. it la His will that this shall be so. , -. - - The woman who is girted with . a pleasing face "usually , has a corre sponding personality : She is more apt than not to marry young. The fancy of even a fickle husband is not apt to stray from her for he sees none, fairer to look upon than she. . Jt is a woman's duty to make her self beautiful to the gaze of her loved ones at home that the memory of her sweetness of face and becomingness of raiment: will never be effaced from their hearts and minds.-; ' To be beau tiful a woman need not necessarily be extravagant or go;. beyond her means.

I have bought a pair of brones shoes to wear with my felaask silk Sunday gown. My relatives are having everylng to say against the .shoes.

In New Tork city women much over forty wear them on the street. . . I These conditions developed very daring ' and resolute ' men, quick in decision and rapid in execution. ; A train robbery was no carefully plan ned stroke of business, vbut a sudden lawless impulse. The life of the plains of 30 to 40 years ago developed many a , character perfectly capable of these acts at any time he felt the need of cash. " . . - Train robbery probably i does not seem attractive to the sneak criminal of today. ' He is looking for what seems more like a sure thing. Sleeping people In their beds, unarmed pedestrians-in dark corners of great cities, houses left alone and unlocked in daylight, these are the favorites. They are much safer than a heavy train where express messengers and others are apt to be armed, and where the telephone quickly summons bands of officers to search the country.

I Peg was now getting angry too. : There was no mistaking the manner of the proud young lady. Peg chafed under it. She looked up sullenly into Ethel's face and said: "I was not to say a warrd, Tm teO in ye. 1 was just to wait." Peg set tled back In the chair and " stroked Michael. This questioning was not at all 4o her lifting.; She wished Mr. Eawkes would come and get her out of a most embarrassing position. But until he1 did she was not going to dis obey his Instructions. Ho told nor to say nothing, so nothing would she say. Ethel turned abruptly to Brent and found that gentleman looking at the odd little stranger somewhat admiring ly. She gave an impatient ejaculation and turned back to Peg quickly: ' f "You say you have only been here a minute?" ' . "That's all," replied Peg "Just a toinnit." ' :- .

Just as if she were stating a simple, ordinary occurrence.' f Ethel flushed acarlet. Brent smiled... r ; "You, refuse to say why you're here or who yon are?"

She looked freezingly down at the for lorn, looking little intruder and said: . "The servants quarters are at the back of the bouse." V : , "Are they?" asked Peg without mov ing and not in any way taking the statement to refer to her. ; "And I may save you tue trouble of waiting by telling you we are quite provided - with servants. We do not need any further assistance.". . Peg Just looked at Ethel 1 and then bentdown over Michael. . Ethel's last shot had struck dome. Poor Peg was cut through to her souL, How she longed at that moment to be.' back home with her father - In New York Before she could say anything Ethel continued:' "If you insist on waiting, kindly do ao-there." Peg took Michael op to her arms, col lected once i more - her packages and walked to the windows. Again she heard tho cold, hard tones of Ethel's voice speaking to her: I "Follow the path to your risht until you .come to a door. ' Knock and ask permission to wait there, and for your future guidance got to the back door of a -boose and ring. :- Don't walk un announced into a private room." -....

' Ethel turned indignantly to Brent as the little figure went off down the path. : ' , '' "Outrageous!" she cried. "Poor little wretch!" Brent walked to the windows and looked after her "She's quite pretty " Ethel looked understandingly at him. "Is she?" . "In a shabby sort of way. vDldn't you think so?" Ethel glared coldly at him. "I never notice the lower orders. .You apparently do." "Oh. yes- often. They're very inter esting at times." He strained to get a last glimpse of the intruder. ' - "Do you ' know, she's the strangest little apparition"-- "She's only a few yards away If you care to follow"1 her!" Her tone brought Brent up sharply. He turned away from the window and found. Ethel, arms folded, eyes flash ing. waltins for him. Something in her manner alarmed blm. - He had gone too far. "Why, Ethel," he said as he came toward her. "Suppose my mother had walked in here or Alaric instead of that crea ture? Never do such a thing again." "I was carried away," he hastened to explain.

"You've not disturbed me." : f "I'm Just 'going." said Brent . "Well, wait a moment" - And Alaric turned to the window and beckoned to some one on the .path, and In from the garden came Mr. 'Montgomery Hawkes. . "Come in," said the. energetic Alaric. "Come in.

Run in any time any time at all." . Alaric closed the door and saw his mother and Ethel coming down the stairs. All traces of emotion had disappeared from Etbef s fac-e and m; nner. She was once again in perfect command of. herself. She carried a beautiful little French poodle in her arms and was feeding her with sugar. Aiaric fussily brought his mother forward. . "Mater, dear," he said.- "I found this gentleman in a rose bed inquiring the way to our lodge. He's come all the way from dear old Lopdon just to see you. Mr. Hawkes. my mother." Mrs. Chichester looked at Hawkes anxiously. ' "You have come to see me?" .- "On a very Important and a very pri vate family matter." replied Hawkes gravely. "Important? .
