H OLDING A USBAND Adele Garrison 's New Phase of,.„ REVELATIONS OF A WIFE What Dicky Explained to Madge Alone. Dicky has the faculty of "coaxing" the birds off the bushes" developed to the nth power. Ile is a most specious and effective special pleader. I real ized when he came to me acknowledg ing the mistake he had made in think ing lie could give a deed to our home without my signature, that 1 would find it difficult to resist the plea for my consent, which I knew he meant to make. I did not reply for a second or two to his question, and he took the sewing from my hands, tossed it on the table, and then, picking me up bodily, seating himself in a big armchair with me in his arms. "Now we can talk things over more comfortably," he said, but first I real ize that I owe you an apology about not, consulting you. They ve been dang ling the thing before me for a long time and it was like a game seeing them come up on their price. And you were so awfullv busy I didn't want to bother you. When they did offer me the big sum. I closed with 'em pronto, and the» of course, you made me mad, so I kicked up a bit. But I'm sorry—awfully-—' In Madge's Heart. "Don't think of it again." I dismissed his apology perfunctorily, for I could not rid invself of the suspicion that his apology and pleading were only born of necessity. He could not sell the house without me, therefore he felt that he must get me into a good humor and be guile me into assenting to his plan. An( j vet—I knew his rash heedlessness. He might well have spoken only the precise truth. I resolved to pick my way warily. "Tell mo something about it, I said quietly. "You must realize. Dicky, that it is terribly upsetting to be told that your home is sold I've been very—very —happy—there." His arm tightened^ibout me. "I know. So have*." he said tenderly, but I clearly saw that though he spoke the truth, yet the statement was a per functory one. That the Marvin h^me had been the scene of many of our hap piest hours did not mean to him what it did to me. After nil, it is the women of the world who romantically cling to anniversaries and places and personal possessions. And it is a state of mind which I believe some husbands humor or tolerate or abuse, according to their temperaments, but which very few un derstand. The Unexpected "But It's foolish to let romance stand in the way of a good bargain," Dicky went on. and his complacent air of being extremely practical made me smother a laugh, business sense of any kind being one of Dicky's notable de ficiencies. "I tell you that's a top notcher price for the place. That is what I told Alf. but he's got the ro mance bug strong—'won't grieve his bride," and all that sort of rot, and it seems Leila doesn't want to lose the place where they plighted their troth." There was a mocking note in his voice which cut me to the quick. I had all I could do not to withdraw myself from his encircling arm. But I would not for the world have let him know that he had wounded me. Pride forbade it. But it galled me to know that Dicky was not considering my wishes as Alfred ^■as Leila's. "So Alfred isn't going to sell," I com mented, making my voice casual. "Do Sis has gone àËf and named me f Post Toasties cause I'm always so Good and Fresh -says Superior Corn Flakes you realize that if we sel! we will lose most delightful neighbors?" "Yes. that's the chief drawback to the plan," he admitted ruefully. "They're the bulliest neighbors in the world, and it ought to be more pleasant than ever now with Leila and Edith there. _ You know, of course, that Edith is going to make her home with them." "I think I heard them speak of it," I returned, prevaricating, but not willing to let Dicky" see that I knew nothing of the plan with which he seemed to be perfectly familiar. Edith Fairfax to be constantly next door! That arrangement decididly would not be "more pleasant" for me! With a sudden revulsion of feeling I realized that the Marvin house would indeed be no longer home if day after day I had to see in Edith Fairfax's eyes the look which Dicky's proximity al ways calls there. Far, far better to do as Dicky had proposed and sell the house. From that second I knew that I would assent to Dicky's plan. But, above all things, I must not let him suspect that Edith Fairfax's proposed proximity had anything to do with it. I must evolve some other reason for my change of front.

For 17 years he used these tablets (a vegetable compound «nixed with olive oil) in his private practice with great success. They do all the good that calomel does but have no bad after effects. No pains, no griping, no injury to the gums or danger from acid foods—yet they stimulate the liver and bowels. Take Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets when you feel "logy" and "heavy."

Some varieties of toys are already completely sold out, and there will be no more this season. Doll carriages which range in price from $7.50 to $20.00 have been among the most popular pur chases at the Paris, W. M. Baldwin, head of the Paris toy department, says the before-Chrlstmas sales of toys this year is more than twice what it was last year. Already the room where toys that have been sold and are being held for just-before Christmas delivery is full, and the management is puzzling over where to store later purchases. One reason for the early shopping in toys may be the very early and attrac tive displays in the toy departments and iii the windows. Especially attractive is the window in Strains' where mechani cal toys are exhibited in action. This is the first time such a window display has been shown in Great Falls. Parents from all over the city are bringing their children to view the miniature lake with the boats sailing an it, and the bridge over which an electric train speeds at intervals. Great excitebent prevailed Wednesday afternoon when the train tumbled off tjie bridge and into the pond. One excited youngster hurried home to his mother with an account of the train falling off the bridge into the water. The mother from the child's in articulate account gather that there had been a real railroad wreck and was ex citedly telephoning to her neighbor ask ing if they had heard of it People are also doing their Christmas shopping early in other lines as well as toys. One reason may be that mer chants began putting on their displays earlier than usual, before Thanksgiving. 1 jflyfi îssïlhu air i$ now "Wildroot Liquid Shampoo is delightfully different.

Measles Outbreak Reported in City A number of cases of measles have developed in Great Falls during the last, few days according to reports filed at the public health office. To prevent an epidemic parents are requested by health officials to keep their children at home upon the first indication that the child is coming down with this disease. Children coming down with the measles, according to Dr. Ayolsius Dolan, have a cold in the head and red eyes. It is while at this stage that measles is the most dangerous. All danger of contagion is nearly over when the measles,rash breaks out on the body. MOTHER!
