Csre's Angers perfoised ther e . with tapidity ad ill, and Carlotta daneed to the mirror to sury herself. Making a deep eurtsey. she backed away. "A most appr yiste wed gift, sm y dear." I said to Laer. The maid, her eyes still Axed ea the neeklaee, withdrew. I and the young man, advancing. expressed his approval. "There is one little thing the matter with it," he said. "You don't mean they're not--" "Oh. no; they're real, if that's what you're hinting at-no. it's more important than that-they're not paid for yet." "Not paid fort"-she pretended not to understand. "A necklacy like that is worth in New York. according to the es tiate of an expert-yourself-one million kiesee-you have paid ten op account-how abput the others?' "The only kind of kisses really It to be used in paying for a gift like this are stolen ones-besides they're sweeter." She smiled as she said it, and then with a motion as light as a feather fled to the door with the ypung man in pursuit. Through the hall they rushed, while Clare, stopping to speak with Peter, paused to wonder what mad caper this bewildering girl was up to now. They disappeared into the con servatory where, dropping to a marble settee, the young woman al lowed herself to be caught. "Look out for my pretty maid," she gasped: "she's always popping in when you're around-just as she did a minute ago-it can't be that you've been flirting with her?" WILL REVAUAT. Unjustifned as this assumption was and unmeant as it was, it roused the anger of the young man. He released his hold and stood star ing at her. "If I ever catch you," she went on, rather enjoying his discomfiture and shaking a warning finger at him, "I shall retaliate-I shall flirt with the butler-" Homer grunted a scornful "Oh. you would I" and retreated a step further. "Oh. yes, I would-you know I adore tall men, don't you?' Mr. Carleton sat down to think it over: his attitude was one of sullen disgust. He gave no sign of knowing that Carlotta was in the room. Miss Darley was full of fun; she reajly was fond of Carleton and she realised she had gone ,too far. If the best part of a quarrel is the making up, she proved to Homer that even the most obdur ate of his moods was powerless in the face of her blandihments, and at list, after a good Seal of fem inine maneuvering she managed to elliet from him the time-worn re mark that no little man likes to be reminded of his littleness.

"Very well, my dear, as wonder ful as you think my gift, it Is not really worth more than two kisses." gUCE A CONJTAPT. 'What's very well said," lasughoed the girl, and slipping her arm through his she walked to the foer with him. Mr. Carleton arrived to claim his hat at the precise moment Johs Stover emerged from his inter view with Christopher Darley. The two 'men, diplomat and e warden. presented much a contrast in masculinity that Carleton could not igpore it. Stover. rather tall. heavy, massive featured, looked like a powerful battleship, while, If the simile may be pursued. Mr. Carle ton resembled a destroyer. The young woman with the dia mond necklace gleaming em her white throat made a picture which struck straight to the heart of the ex-wbrden. He stood like a man petrijfed with his eyes focused on the daughter of the house, while Mr. Carleton. with an amused shrug, took his hat from Peter. waved farewell and went out. Obviously it was Mr. Stover's cue to follow; he had no excuse for re maining, but apparently he forgot the butler was holding the door ajar for him. Sotto voice, he aired his senti ments: "A peach and a lemon," he said, referring to Miss Darley and the man she was to marry. This remark, never in the best of taste. sm'ed particularly of fensive to Peter, who coughed dis creetly in protest. Stover turned. scrowled, went toward the door. paused to look once more at the fascinating vision of the girl and passed into the street. Peter had never shut the door on any of the Darley guests with more satisfaction. Miss Darley, summoning Clare, who had stood at a respectful distance looking on at this strange scene, pointed to the great outdoors gravely. "Who was that queer person?" she asked. "A Mr. Stover. Miss Darley," Peter answered for her. "a busi ness mian." "That's all, Clare." said the young woman, waving the maid away. and with one hand on the balus trade pausing to speak to Peter. WAS ADROIT. The butler remained like a sol dier at attention; Miss Darley gazed at him coquettishly and started to run up the stairs; she was nothing, if not, adroit; high heeled slippers may be made an excuse for almost any sort of ac cident. She slipped, gracefully, apparently completely, and would have fallen if Peter's arms, ex tended in the nick of time had not caught her. The slight scream which pre ceded her lapse into unconscious ness was the signal for Clare's re turn as an unwilling witness of a tableau in which she found small satisfaction.

" 1 Wts wts Io >\IL -, * WsI THiS 0 A1-1- C Is Marriage a Success? WHAT CAN SHE DO? After reading quite a few of the letters in your marriage column I wonder if they still have much to complain about, after all. I have been married eleven years and have two children. I cannot to anywhere in the daytime on account of my little girl, and my husband, knowing that we cannot go out to gether, makes life miserable for me. If I want to go to the movies with a girl friend about twice a week he will refuse to let me go. He is not the kind of a man that ofakes home life pleasant. All he does every evening is eat and go to bed. If it was not for my child, I would have left him long ago. But what can I do? BROKEN HEARTED. DOE IT PAY TO RE A DRUDGEt My life has been no bed of roses. I have strived so hard to have a home that would be comfortable and happy. but my hopes have been so shattered and my soul so crushed that it seems I will never gain the spirit that was in me when I married my husband. Men have too many outside al lurments. He wants a place to sleep and eat. wants to spend his money on clubs and shows and be called a good sport, and says any old place is good enough to live in. What can a woman do with such a lfropoitlon as this. I have been a regular drudge, raising children and doing all the work to save money only to find I have to live in any old place in any old way. This is my reward. Does it pay. to be a drudge? DISGUSTED. ATYLL TIME. I would lIke to express my opin ion on the letter signed "Lsone some." SThere should be no need of lone someness. You are young, and from your letter you are a *'real girl." There is still time to find your "pal." so do not grow weary of waiting. If there were more girls lIke you what a blessing it would be for the men. Then marriage would be what it should be. You are bound to be rewarded, as there are many fel lows who need not be condemned who are on the lookout for skch a girl as you. I'm a chap of twenty-two and sin watchfully waiting for my "pal" to come above my horizon of hope. then life would pie more worth liv ing. C. W. D. Wholesale Selling Price of Beef in.

If put into whitewash it will make it stick better. As a tooth powder it will keep the teeth white and the gums hard and rosy. Use salt and water to cyn willow furniture; apply with a brush and rub dry. Salt and water held in the mouth after having a tooth pulled will stop the bleeding. Prints rinsed with it in the water will hold their color and look brighter. Silk handkerchiefs and ribbon should be washed in salt and water and ironed wet to obtain the best results. As a fertiliser salt is very valu able. Food would be tasteless without it. Thoroughly wetting the hair one or twice with a solution of salt and water will keep it from falling out. Advice to By Beatric PREEING A IOU!a DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: I met a married man ever a year ago, at that time not knowing he was married, until he left the city. Then I learned he was granted a divorce, the object being cruelty, I was Informed. While in this man's ompany, I -was treated with every rspect and consideration that could be shown. which of course made me care a great deal and all the more for him, and am also positive he cares a great deal for me. In spite of his past notorious life, he i. willing to reform and make amends for the future since be has met me, claiming that am so much different than him tor mes women associataa Now Miss Fairfax I would like to know whether I should continue this man's friendship, since I seem responsible for his jeformation, or disoontinue it. He is still away and we still correspond. UNDECYDED, Keep up the good influene, if you care to. Just because he is divorced is no reason for dirnon tinuing the friendship. FooLIen. DEAR XIII FAIRFAX: Not long ago I met a very agree able and eseelient dancer. He calls at my home and takes me to dances reesioaly. New Year anht " " Fol To Clean and Store Clothes The best way to prevent moths is to pack the clothing in a trunk or chest, sprinkling freely with napthaline flakes. When filled place a soup plate on top of clothing and put three tablespoons of carbon disulphide in the plate. Close the trunk tightly and do not' open until fall. Extreme care should be taken not to have flame of any kind around, as carbon disulphide is more inflammable than gasoline. Naptha line flakes or moth balls, using two pounds to an ordinary trunk of clothes, are effective moth preven tions; but moth balls will not pre vent the eggs from hatching, while the flakes will. CEDAR ALONE NOT ENOUGH. Brushing, dusting and airing thoroughly, then dusting the clothes with napthaline flakes or pyrethrum powder, and careful wrapping are the best insurance against moths. Placing in a cedar chest is an addi tional safety, but cedar alone will not prevent moth eggs fron hatch ing. Cloaks and dresses hold their shape better if hung in moth. proof bags instead of laying flat in chest or on shelves. Loose, sleazy material and dresses heavily trimmed are better laid flat, as their own weight often stretches them out of shape. Sweaters generally stretch out of shape if put away on hangers, but if they are dropped loosely on clean cloth or paper on the shelf in cedar chest, they will retain their shape perfectly. PLACED IN DARK. Delicate colored garments should be placed in dark to keep thenm from fading. Put tailored suits away rough cleaned or, if pressed ready tor wear, put in separate box, stuffing the front and sleeves with tissue paper and put tissue paper in the skirt where folded crosswise. Cotton garments should be put away without starch, as moths like it.--Mrs. E. B. 8. Lovelorn e Fairfax. ,had a dance at my home. and, of course, he wasn invited, When one of my. girl friend. started to leave he took her in his arms and kissed her before her friend and me. We had a slight argument over it, and needless to say I became angry and wouldn't speak. I never realised how much I thought of him until now, and from all appearances he likes me. Now, Miss Fairfax, do you think it was right of him to kiss her, of fering the ezous of New Year, and do you think he cares for me a litW.? BETTY 0. You were very foolish to Say any thing about it. It was all done so innocently. He could care a lot about you, and at the same time steal a New Year kise just for fun. Don't be so downright serious.

(Copyright. 102e. by Mrs, Percy Duvall.) Newest Frocks for Spring By Rita Stuyvesant. OMN have found that a tricotine frock will give ex oeptionally good service. Unlike a silk gown. it may be fashioned from the simplest slip-on freck to the most elaborate crea tion. Among the simple frocks for every-day occasions the chemise model with a low waIstline holds a prominent place. Short set-in sleeves with a round neck and brief satirt are the main features of these simple affairs. Self-cov ered buttons are used as trimming and form close rows down the front panel or mark the back. Narrow kid or patent leather belts buckle about the waist of some of the frocks. Dainty oollare of fine net or organdy are used to relieve the severity of the neck line. Embroidery is used extensively on tricotine, and one may expect to see anything from wool- to cut beads worked in elaborate designs. Gray angora wool is a favorite on navy tricotine, and forms a deep border on a full-skirted modeL. BrIck-red worsted works itsf in to a charming effect on anothcr model, while georgette in the same henna shade sashes the hips at tractively. One of the newest models com bInes navy triootine with pale gray georgette. The georgette forms a pleated panel down the front, anid the tricotine is cut in a loose oat effect, framing the panel with long revers. A loose sash of black shiny ribben is looped about the figure, onfning the fullness ever so lit te. Worn with gray pumps and black satin hat. this stunning dress affords a distinctive costume. Tade green georgette allies it self beautifully with navy tricotine in another good-looking frock for daytime. It shows a full circular skirt broken at intervals by bands of the jade. The tight bodice is piped in jade georgette, and there's a slima girdle of the gree that loops off the left hip. A smart model beaded in dark brown beads favors the moyenagei effect. as many of the best frocks do this season, and the narrow srit is hung by a full tunic hev 117 beaded.

Women Rejuvnated Professor Holskaecht's employ ment of the Roentgen ray for "re juvenation of women" is so success ful that one patient, who was a singer of only melancholy songs, became soubrette. he said in an in terview today. Holzknecht is a young man of Vienna. who was associated with Professor Steinach. famous "reju venator," but although the latter's process has proven effective for both sexes. Holsknecht's methods have been applied more especially to women. The new use of the Roentgen ray causes improvement in both the mental and physical functions of women. Holsknecht said. "Personally. I do not believe 're juvenation' is quite the correct word," he said. "but I can say that my patients show manifold im provement in their bodily condition. "Five hundred women were ex amined in a Vienna clinic, and the growth in energy among women be tween forty and fifty years of age in their social activities was no ticeable. The women became fresher and lovelier. Their skin was Armer and their mood better, and actually they gave the impres sion of having been rejuvenated." Holzknecht said that only one treatment was possible. but that its effect was "quite prolonged."
