Among the countless things said about the hows and whys of women’s surrenders one motive teems to have been too much ignored, though it must have ex erted a vast influence as women go n.r.re and more into the worlds of business, of art, and of freedom with only themselves for their guardians. • Oood sportsmanship, a naueu of smuggery, a contempt for too careful self-protection, a disgust for a holier-than-thou self-esteem— '“these are amiable attitudes of mind that make for popularity. To be a jn:ser of one's graces, a hvpochon di acal codc'ler of one’s virtues, is |o be unloved and unovable. So many a man will gamble, 'fcreak a law, risk his career, his Aealth, his life, get drunk, steal pl y, and play the fool rather than 5ace the reproach that he is a Dn dlycoddle, a Puritan, a prig, a Ppi ss Nancy, a coward, a Pharisee.

She was not free, however, from the witchery of this night, this dream, the vast yearning of this mountainous beauty.

T: 1 • T t a*r was of a strange gentleness, and the cars that shot past threw u light i.ito their i ctreat. 1 here was a long, long silence that filled Mem with a terror she could nut quite tail to enjoy. She could not tell whether she heard her own heartbeats or his, but excite ment was athrob together in the little coach that had brought them so swiftly to this remote seclusion. Claymore was dumb so long that Mem had time to erase to be afraid of what he would say, and to begin to wish that he would get it said, so that she could know what her answer would be. She felt a baffling uncertainty of herself. She could not imagine what she might do or say. She nad not had much experience of men, but enough to know that before long I he would initiate the immemorial procedure that staits with an arm adventuring about a waist and a voyage after a kis3. She told herself that the only right and proper thing to do would be to resist, protest, forbid, and pre vent at any cost the profanation of her sacred integrity. If necessary, she must figh*, scratch, scream, escape, run away, appeal for help to any passer-by, or, as a last re sort, leap over the cliff and die for honor’s sake. But who was that She and who was that Herself that told each other so many things? Herself told She that Mr. Clay more could not be treated as an ordinary ruffian, an insolent, out rageous knave, a fiend. He had treated her with most delicate courtesy from the first, he had given her his admiration, his praise, his devotion, his mute but evident affection. If he loveci W and revealed his love, she coutt. hardly veward his patient chivalry with prompt in gratitude and violence and fear. That would make her the instiher, not him. She muat be very gentle with biyya tad blp kjgdJr tofat hunger to be embraced and kissf d and whispered to, the need to lie kept warm in the cold loneliness of the world. .... Her thoughts spun giddily in her mind, all entangled with a skein of romantic threads. She was young and pretty and time was wasting her Howcrly graces. Some one bloomed! While she debated with herself, as doubtless innumerable women have plights, Claymore’s own mind was a chaos of couallv ancient plati tudes of a man's philosophy. At length lie found the courage or the cruelty to slip his arm at cut Mem’s waist and to draw her • -e to him. He was almost more alarmed than delighted t (imd that she hardly resisted at r'\ He took her hands in ..is and whispered, “Your poor i<U»c .m •» arc cold!’’ Then lie kissed them with cold lips that he lifted at once to hers and found them warm and strangely like a rose against his mouth. He was as much amazed as if hers were the first lips he had ever kissed—as if he had just invented kissing. Then in a frenzy of won der he closed her in his arms with all his power. He did not knovt that the wheel bruised her mie, and neither did she. w Hut she forgot to debate ner a,!/ or to think of her soul. She thought only of the rapture of this com munion, and her arms stole around his neck and she clenched hiu- with all the power of her arms. Mem, swooning she knew rot whither, was awakened from her mad rapture by a Jow voice across her shoulder. “Sorry to interrupt you. ''oiks, but I need your money!” She turned an-'* found herself blinded by the glare from a halted fct a little distance. Dazzled i as she was, she could see the gaunt hand that held before her a black pistol with a glint outlining ;ts ugly mmrzle. Claymore was «me enough to at tempt no resistance, though ht almost perished of chagi in. Ho endured the insolence of the masked stranger who stole the chain and a wallet and the lco3e silver. The blackguard held his c’ubbtd pistol 01 er Claymore’s head a moment, then forebote to stnke, and dropped froir. tne step with a last warning. “Sit pretty now and keep *cm up till I £pt goin’ oi 1*11—” Hip car shot around the curve. Claymore brought down his ach ing arms. They were too muck ashamed of themselves to return to their late pr*t about Mem’i shoulders. 9 A pre verse remorse filled t&eir souls with confusion; a remorse be cause of a wiong remorse, a disgust for an unaccepted temptation and for being so temptable. * * * * A woman never quite forgives a man for not dying for her at the first opportunty. She probably never quite forgives him for dying, either. So the clever man evade* ■'* situation where a choice is re quired, as the virtuous man evades temptation while it ia yet far off.

Regardless j I of the statement by many wise acres that the Radio had spelled the death knell of the talking machine, there never was a better demand for the better type talking machine than there is today. The reason for this is self-evident. The radio is used because it brings news of the day, together with music and entertainment. The radio, however, cannot take the place of any of the perma nent recordings of favorite songs, favorite singers, or the favorite entertainers. For this reason, Brunswick, in this; their latest type Panatrope with Radio, have incorporated new ideas, new discov eries and new designs of motors and reproducers, as well as new sounding boxes, that in the past were unknown: The machine shown in the photograph with Valerie Rasmeier, is fit to grace \ the halls of the most fastidious.^ It is the most sumptuous piece S of work turned out by the manufacturers of the Brunswick Talking I Machine.
