, WOMAN'S INTERESTS AND SUQ0EST10NS FOR HOMEMAKERSj
"THE LOVE PENDULUM Βχ MARION RUBINCAM Discontent CHAPTER 47 I saw Nedda oft at the station with a little feeling of relief. I was sorry she had spoken as she ' did. It upset me. Little by little all ι these old friends of mine, all these eld associations, were closing in iround me, were undermining my ideals. Suppose I should adopt their cyn ical worldly point of view! What ' :hcn? Suppose I should begin to think that the great things of life [A'ere the things that I had really re nounced? "ν I had been so sure love was evcry . thing. I was sure of that still. But the question was coming into my mind more and more insistently—did I have love? Sometimes I looked at Win imper sonally, wondering about him. In the evenings we sat on the porch sometimes, more often in the little living room where Win read the papers and I read or sewed. I could see hie profile when I glanced up. He was and he wasn't handsome. His ekin had been wonderfully clear end alive when I prst knew him, but . the days indoors at the office and the I evenings and nights Indoors and in badly ventilated, overheated places, had affected him as it had affected me. "Even if you don't like being here the fresh air and the n«iet is doing you good," I said suddenly. "Oh, I feel all right, I always have." He gave a little impatient twist to his shoulders. I went on with my critical inspec tion. At some time in her married life every woman looks at her hus band, not ae though he were the man she was wedded to, or that she was eure she was going to love forever and ever, but as she might look at > some perfect stranger, some doubt ful person on whom she bends a critical eye. The man who looks up to meet that sudden inspection should take care. For it may be the direct break between happiness and a gradually growing misery. But Win never looked up. He Went rfh reading. He had an irregular profile, not a bad one. His hair was nice in the way it went back from his forehead, his chin was not strong, though it ■was well shaped, it was decidedly weak looking. His mouth—it could be tender as I well knew. It could ^ be hard too—and then he looked like hie mother. His nice grayish eyes would have redeemed a face far less attractive than his, but I could not tee the eyes now. • He looked up, drawn by the mag oetism of my gaze. "What's up, Connie?" he asked, laying aside his paper. "Nothing," I answered. "I wish . •ometiimes you—liked It better here. I don't like to see you bored and un happy." Win picked up a cigarette and lit it. "I'm not dear," he answered gently. "I'm standing it much bet ter than I expected. I think I must be vegetating." I began to laugh, the first free laugh for a long time. "You're not, you are relaxing," I cried. It happened that we had no guests the following weekend. Win and I spent a long Saturday morning working on the lawn and among the flowers, and in the afternoon we went for a swim at the beach. Sun day came cool and delightful. We planned a tramp over the hills for the afternoon, and that morning we had breakfast out on the porch and 1 made muffins while Win made coffee. It was one of the nicest memories t have—that morning. But it ended at noon. For at noon a great car slid up to our gate and «topped. Win called into the house for me, and I went out to see who the unexpected guests ivere. They were Gwendolyn and a party of friends. "So sweet, such a dear little house, as cozy as a bird's nest," Gwen cried, holding out both hands to Win as she alighted. "Connie, dear, how well you look! I really believe this agrees with you." We greeted the party and they all rame in on the porch. Gwen was too enthusiastic. "See the child's eyes—bluer than heaven! You look so different from last winter. Will it make me as >-oung and charming? I could even ?nduro the country if it would make me So attractive." I turned to talk to the others, rhey were motoring to the Green mountains, and ran out of their wg*., ïo find our place. ".Lost six times! You are not on iny motor map I nossess," Gwen -•ried. "Win, I haven't seen you— for days, have I? Do you like it here?" "I hate it," Win answered, looking lown into her eyes. They were standing a little apart from the çroup, but I could overhear and so :ould anyone who chose to listen. "Well, she may be making a mls ake in burying you here all sum Tier, you with your talent. But the luiet won't hurt you!" There was ι glance from those odd green eyes. "You'll come in town next week ind lunch with me, Connie! I'm lome by Wednesday," she said in carting. "I'll be delighted," I answered me .hanically. And they drove oft'. Win watched the car disappear hen turned and scowled at our louse. "Hideous place! And the summer ias only Just started!" C ONFESSIONS Of A ► Husband! Tbe liau's Side uf Married Life I Tarn Cook Another evening eaw Dot com pletely lagged out. Hobble was ir bed when ι reached home, and Doi was nearly as listless ana Ured at he. "I'm sorry not to bo better com pany," Bile told me. "it's certainly too bad we can'i afford to keep a maid any longer," J replied, "i'ui airalu you're trying lo do too much." "JNo, I'm all light—just tired. Bui it isn't lair to you lior to Bobble." ".Never minu, 1 tried to comiorl her. "It 1 set that job with ûdim's lather a comfortable salary will gc with it, and everything will be all right again." "1 can't understand why there's been such a deiay," my wile com plained. "1 should thlllic he'd know uy now whetner ur iiul he wanted you." 1, too, was bothered, but 1 didn't like to admit it. "Oh, tilings in busi ness sometimes take longer than a person expects. lou'li see that in the end X'll get the Job. "Don't lei's worry anyway; we can get along lor a while on my present salary and something else will turn up if this scheme doesn't go through." "Things are all right now if no body gets sick," Dot said. "It would be" terrible if that happened because I don't know how we'd pay the doc tor'e bill." "Come on, brace up." I tried tc be cheerful. "There's no sense in b making trouble for ourselves. What are we going to have for dinner? You just sit in tho kitchen and tell me what to do." "Do you mir.d, dear, fixing some thing for yourself while I lie down?" Dot tried to smile bravely. "I can hardly manage to move and I don't want anything to eat. Just fry your self some eggs—you'll find them on the top shelf of the ice-box. Take the white ones. " * —J ne*· onmλ ΛΜίΧ ytlu tail l ly bui lie iiiiiaiwo with them and make yourself a cup of coffee. There's a piece of cake in the bread-box. I'm eorry I can't do better for you, but you'll excuse me Juat tonig-ht, won't you?" "Of course, sweetheart. Lie down right away and don't worry about ine." Dot went to our room and I took off my coat and busied myself in the kitchen. I had done cooking of a very simply kind on camping trips and I didn't mind frying a couple of eggs. But domestic life for us, I saw, had become a rather drab affair. Dot was more of a maid-of-all-work than she was a wife. Her duties about the house were so many that she had neither the time nor the interest to give to me. There must be some way out of this dismal, monotonous round of drudgery. One way out, certainly, was to make more money. I hoped to be able to do that. There wae another way, but I did I not want to think of it. (To be continued) (Copyright 1921 by Newspaper En terprise) I HOROSCOPE I 'The «lare lDclln but da not compel." Sunday, July 3, 1921 (Copyright, 1921, by the McClure Newspaper Syndicate) Good and evil stars contend today, according to aitrology. While Mer cury, Neptune, Mars and the Sun are in beneflc aspect Uranus, Jupiter and Saturn are adverse. During this planetary government the mind is likely to be disturbed and unsettled, because of the con trary influencee. This should be a favorable day for writing letters or for literary work of any sort. It is a time for visiting friends, especially those that may be of serv ice in ambitious projects. Young folk will find that attention paid to their elders while this con figuration prevails will be well worth while. During this sway there should be much profit at summer resorts. This is a lucky day for short journeys or outings of any sort. Again Uranus and Saturn rule with evil portent that seems to bode anxiety for rulers of every sort. All who represent the head of govern ment may expect to be the target for unkind criticism. Members of congress will proba bly partake of the public displeasure for there will be a tendency to find fault, even where there is no cause for dissatisfaction. Saturn is in a place that promises much Interest in colonization schemes of every sort. Back to the land movements will be fought, probably, and will be subjected to suspicion, but they will win success where they are honestly managed. The weather at this time is likely to be exceedingly oppressive and debilitating. The aged will suffer. Despite efforts at economy in gov ernment expenses, there will be a great increase that cannot be avoid ed, the eeers prophesy, and this will probably be in the line of coast de fenses or military preparations. Persons whose blrthdate it is should not speculate or risk money. The year may be rather unsettled, but it will be wise t# avoid changes. Children born on this day may be serious, ambitious and inclined to be extravagant. These subjects of Cancer are usually fond of adven ture and they may attain big suc cesses.

So when Sprinkle-Blow discovered that it was Jack Frost who had mixed hail and hit Ben Bunny on the nose, he decided that it was time to put him under lock and key until he should be needed in late fall 'or sweetening up grapes and pump kins. There stood sly Jack "ha-ha-ing" and "ho-ho-ing" at a great race and he made Nancy, and Nick so cross they wanted to make faces at him; but Jack wouldn't have cared. Ho was accustomed to folks making faces when he was around. Why, the impudent fellow even went up to Farmer Smith one time (just be cause he had made a wry face at the cold weather) and blew his breath on him and froze his whis kersl But that's another story and there's no time for it here.

Jack was "ha-ha-ing" away 1 when a plan popped Into Sprinkle· Blow's head. Jack had been keeping back In the shadow, for as we all know, he dislikes Mr. Sun. Sprinkle-Blow f whispered to Nancy, who immedi- -, ately slipped off to the house where the good winds lived; In a minute she returned with lovely warm South Wind. South Wind flew up behind Jack and blew down his back. Jack was so surprised he forgot and stepped out into the hot raye of Mr. Sun. j That dazzled him and the rest was easy because he couldn't see a thing.
