"I would like to know that woman
Dick," I said when I had finished
reading the part of the letter li
which "the woman outside" told o)
the man in her studio apartment.
"And I'd like to know the man,'
he said, with his characteristic grin
"Any man with only a cameo profil*
and a seraphic smile who can charir
the heart out of a great big intelli
gent woman like the one who is writ
ing those letters is one who coulc
show us dubs a hot trail on the sub
ject of how to keep a woman guess
"That is Just the point, .Dick. H<
did not keep the woman guessing. Ii
your picturesque idiom, she 'had hii
number' from thf*. first. Don't yoi
read between the lines and realiz<
that she herself is rather surprised a
her capitulation to his charm? An<
besides it is not just his cameo fea
tu res and seraphic smile—it is his In
finite understanding and gentleness
The man who can play when yoi
play, who can be hurt when you ar<
hurt, who can be earnest when yoi
are earnest, who can be interested ii
the things in which you are interest
ed, who can be "irresponsible whei
you are irresponsible, who can b
spiritual when you are—"
"Here, here, Margie, hold on
There ain't no sich animal as the kin<
of man you have Just described."
"Yes, there is, I>ick."
Dick was silent for a short timi
and then said in rather a queer voicc
"Did you ever know one, Margie?"
"Well, I'm gosh darned sure it isn'
me, and now what I want to know
young lady, is why you did not fal
for him?"
"Perhaps I did, Dick."
"Did you meet him before we weri
married, dear?"
catechised at all about this. But I I
am going to say to you that one of *
the greatest mistakes a man can
make is to calmly go on in the plead
ing supposition that because he has
paid a woman the dubious compli
ment of marrying her, she thereby
becomes immune from the fascina
tions of other men.
"Oh. Dick, when will your sex get
a glimmering of the fact that women
aro human beings just as you are?
They crave the understanding and
interest that means love just as you
do, and they expect an expression of
it. If you do not give It to your wife
you ought to know your sex well
ι enough to realize that there is al
ways another man in the oiling ready
ι and willing to do this if your wifo U
• the least attractive.
"She does not even need to be In
telligent to receive attention from
some of your best friends as well as
casual acquaintances, and, God pity
you, if she is not intelligent enough
ι to take this persiflage at its true
value and let common sense control
her vanity. It she does not do this
there may be explosions and ecan- j
ι dais."
ι "But, Margie." said Dick, coming
back to the question. "I don't think ι
any of my friends would make love
ι lo you."
"Have you never flirted with your
friends' wives, Dick?" I anked with a
> s-mile.
Dick had the grace to blush.
Isn't it queer that a man th'uiks he
can flirt with any and all women, but
t thill most men will leave his woman
, alone. Dick, little book, has never
1 been jealous of me and yet I think
he could be supremely jealous if he
thought he had the slightest cause.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 1.—"Bread Is
cheaper In Engliuul than In the United
States, although the Hour Is imported
from til is country."
That is a frenuent criticism of
Uncle Som'g food administration. If
England can import our flour, pay the
handling and transportation charges
and retail the product cheaper some
thing must bo wrong, somebody is get
ting α big rake-off—is the argument.
Bread does retail cheaper in Eng
land than In tihe United States, but—
The English retail price does not
oover the cost of production.
The government haa subsidized the
baking industry, pays approximately
half the cost of bread and lays it an
the English people in taxes instead of
directly in bread costs.
A barrel of flour selling In this coun
try today at J10.50 costs the domestic
purchaser in England $16.08. But the
government, which Imports all flour,
scUs this flour to bakers at $7.38 per
'barrel. The difference Is at>sort)ed as
a war expenditure
With this $7.38 flour—which costs
the government more than $15—the
baker is required to mix 20 per cent, of
potato, corn or other cheaper flour.
This Is made into four-pound loaves,
which retail ,at 18 cents, one-quarter
loaf—or one pound—selling at 5
Kngland Is paying less for her bread
—to the retailer. But the real cost.
In taxes as well as direct purchase
price, is higher.
Soldier Clubs
Ai Camp Dix
r Th ere will be no lack of Entertain
ment for the soldier boys at Camp
Dix. In addition to the Club House
at Wrightstown which is being fin ne
ed by the New Jersey Woman Suffrage
Association, two other recreational
clu-bs will be opened by other wom
en's organizations, one at Pointvllle,
V on the opposite side of the canton
ment, by the Notional League for
Woman's Service, and one at Wrtghts
tonvn by the Stato Federation of Wom
en's Clubs. General Kennedy has
loaned a farmhouse just inside the can
tonment limits to the National Loague
and the league is now having heating
and lighting system Installed and ex
pect to open the house inside oi two
Or three weeks. This work la being
done tinder the personal supervision of
Miss Margaretlta Fort.
The State Federation of Woman's
Clubs has rented a barn for three
hundred dollars a month at Wrights
town one block from the suffragists'
building. This is to be remodelled
and heat and light arranged for. The
federation hopes to open its Soldiers
Club before the end of November. The
first month's rerat has been pledged by
the Woman's Club of Orange.
The appreciation of the soldiers
for clube of this sort Is very keen, as
Is demonstrated by the letters quoted
below which were sent to the man
ager of the National League for Wom
an's Service Soldiers Club at Sea CMrt.
after the Jersey men left there for An
nlston, Alabama:
"Your very generous lunch pack
ages certainly have touched more than
our stomachs; our hearts also. We
humbly say In unison 'Many, many
thanks!!' and may your industrious
efforts for the Boys be amply repaid.
"We. the undersigned, so greatly
thank you for the bags you were so
kind as to give us before entertaining
for the south thait words fail us."
Signed by a dozen Battery Β Boys.
"Now that we are fairly settled in
tmr train, I want to use my first spare
moncnt to thank you for the last
•good luck' wish that you expressed to
us βο thoughtfully ait the station this
afternoon. It Is typical of the work
you have been doing for us fellows
while at camp, and even though they
don't ail think of thanking you verb
ally or as I am doing, I «rant you to
know that they allhave a warm spot
In their thoughts for the ladles who
have been so nice to us. and H you
could have he&rd the remarks passed
on the train about you all, you could
more readily believe me."
The Soldiers Club conducted by the
New Jersey Woman Suffrage Associa
tion la to be opened informally on
Wednesday the list The formalj
opening will be held two weeks later f
when a reception will be held at the ι
Club House for the many friends j
whose interest add contributions have :
made the work possible.
Save the wheat!
France, England. Ireland, Italy and
Belgium in peace time Import 10 per,
cent, of their wheat. Owing to reduc
ed harvests tlhey must import 60 peri
cent during the next year. In peace,
time wo furnish 8.2 per cent, of thelrj
hreadstuffs. This year, to meett their
minimum requirements, we must fur- I
nish at least 20 per cent—220,000,000,-'
000 bushels of wheat.
If we eat normally, we wiLl have a
a surplus of only 88,000,000 bushels.
If we reduce our consumption of
wheat flour one pound per person we
can supply the neceeary 220,000,000. |
Waste no bread
Use dry bread in toast, and c rum be
in thickening. j
Use more corn bread, com and oat j
breakfast foods, rice and hominy. '
Serve buckwheat, oatmeal or corn
cakes instead of wheat cakee.
Use more potatoes and vegetables, j
