,WOMAN’S INTERESTS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR HOMEMAKERS
WHEN A WOMAN TELLS 'BY BUTH AGNES ABELING ■ ■ ■ '■■■'* CHAPTER 48. Marry Tom l Philip Urges M© Wondering, I followed Philip Ames downstairs. He lead the way to a far corner of the library and there sat on a divan. His battered face in the half light was ghost-llke and grew some. “I'm ready to own up,” he said. "Tom did this. I think I came out the worse of the two—he isn’t so badly mussed up. But it was over everything in general and you in particular. It started with Grace and his defense of her at the dinner and went on until you were dragged in and then we started pounding lach other and achieved that front page publicity this morning.” "You fought—over me?” I Inter rupted. "Yes, Mise Sorensen,” seriously; "the details of it make little differ ence. . . _ "What I want to say, and what I think is very important, is—marry Tom Bradford, if you can! I know you could have once. Men of Ills kind turn to steel suddenly, but I think Tom is not at that stage yet, and for your own happiness—marry t him while you can!” Bt "And don't, don't follow Lila Ames’ B example! Creatures such as Lila Ames cause more trouble than any one knows of. I’m not talking from my own side, because I haven't any aide; I gave up any rights I might have had long ago. But I have finally come to see it from Lila's angle and from John's. "I've been more or less of a rotter hlnce—” He didn’t finish the sen tence. There was nothing for me to say —I waited in silence. “But there Isn't any use of going back.” Philip began finally. "I guess it has been my fault for the most part, but I Just wanted to say the one thing to you—marry him and then don't frivol your treasures away as Lila and I have. “For people who live as we have for the past few years there is noth ing, no past, nothing to look back to; no future, nothing to look for ward to. “I guess there were things I could have lived for—could have pinned my future to, but I didn’t see the gold along my own doOryard path— and now I’m afraid it’s too late." "Too lat§?" I questioned. “Yes, it is with men, as it is with women—It they fritter away their best. Every man who starts it be lieves that with his brain and cun ning he can buck the tiger and get away with it. “Tom isn’t that sort. That's why you ought to take him while you can get him, while he wants you and while—you want him. “Oh, you haven’t fooled me!” he went on, as I tried to interrupt. “I have known for a long time that you do care about him, and I’ve been doing my best to part you. But I’ve got a hunch that it is time for me to stop that sort of thing now. “Forgive me for being personal, and believe that everything I have said, I have said for your own good.” Before I could answer he had hur ried from the room.

ADVENTURES OF THE TWINS ' By OLIVE ROBERTS BARTON “The Escape” The Nuisance Fairies promised to be very good and very quiet Bnd to stay dojvnstairs, while ^ Nancy and Nick cleaned their second W floor. And they kept their word v Bran when Howly Thunder noticed Something and winked at his best lriends. Jumpy Lightning and Old Man Flood, nodding his head at the same time toward the front door, he did it ever so quietly. And when Jumpy Lightning and Did Man Flood saw what he meant Ihey nodded back quietly too. This Was what they saw. The Twins had Slammed the door but they had not locked it. The way was clear for til the Nuisance Fairies to escape Upstairs the Twins were as busy is Roman candles on the Fourth of July. They swept and dusted and scrubbed and cleaned and made beds and moved furniture and soon had everything shining. "Somebody’s going to have a big surprise,” said Nancy, surveying their work with pride. "I think they deserve something nice for being so good, don’t you ,Nick. Let's call them all up.” Nick was about to agree when a distant roaring reached their ears. A queer, mixed, rumbling sound. The Twins rushed to the window and looked down to he earth, far, far below. What a sight met their eyes! The Nuisance Fairies had es caped, every mother’s son of them, and they were quarreling. Old Man Flood had Sizzly Dry Weather by the neck trying to choke him, while Jack F’rost hopped around on one foot and laughed. Howly Thunder and Jumpy Light ning were fighting Mr. Storm and Mr. Storm wa sraging mad. “Get out both of you. I don’t need you now that summer is over. Get out,” he cried. The next thing the Twins saw was Sprinkle-Blow striding into their midst and doing all he could to stop them. "Quick!” said Nick, "we must go down and help him.” (To be continued.) ft J|EYS ► || “AFTER EVERY WEAL** || || Mbit leaf, peppermint or lus- || If cions Juicy trait* either HI lj flavor is a treat for your | sweet tooth. | I And all are equally cood for I 1; you* Teeth* appetite and I 1 dteesttoo all benefit* I 1 Ybur nerves win say “thank I I yoa*“*your vim will respond. | I WRIGLETS Is (iked for what | 8 If does as well as for Its BIG | I value at the small cost of 5c. 1 El TbeFlavorLasfs I ^p w ^BfF ss&ym ll f 1 il fjj III II! nnijJ’J I»rn nr m in ffr nr >rr M y^% ^ k Editorials For Women Folks You attracted him during that frivolous evening at the dance, when you were such a gay, such a glad, such a devil-may-care little girl!

And with the thought of him somewhere it. the back of your head, you found something thrilllngly Interesting in house plans, in pretty effects for cosy little rooms and you let yoursell dream—because the dreams that you can have are almost the better part of loving someone.

And you felt, stunned and cheap and you sent him away know ing that ho never would say what you had wanted to hear because he had gauged you wrongly.

Be as happy as you will, but don’t let him get the wrong Impression—he values first the good ness and the sweetness of you.

Be just vain enough to turn the two wings of your three-leaf mirror so that you can see all sides of your face and then—practice! Exercise your eyes! Up and downward, round and round! And then—are they real living, thrilling eyes which say things? Do they tell when you're happy? Do they tell when you're dreaming? Do they tell wrhen you’ve won? They should. And you can make them so if you’ll just think and practice. Cut an oblong out of a piece of paper. Hold the opening over your eyes. Would every one know that they're your eyes? Or do they look so much like your neighbor's that if it wasn’t for the line on your nose where your glasses fit you wouldn't know them yourself? Then pay at tention to them. Make them follow your thoughts. Look at the eyes of your friends —you’ll be surprised at the little there is that is characteristic about them. They’re just eyes! Do make yours—you! And give your eyelashes just lots of care because, in importance, they come next to the eyes themselves! Don’t ever clip them! It makes them harsh like bristles. Have a soft brush, a very small one, made for the purpose, with which to keep your eyelashes and brows smooth. Use a little dark vaseline on your brows if you want them to be glossy and to grow dark er.

You will bo punctual at meals while you are a guest in your friend’s home. You will follow the customs of the house in such things as morning worship or church attendance. BY MARIAN HALE NEW YORK—Of course the silly ostrich goes and hides his head in the sand when frightened. Perhaps that Is why the modest girl hides her blushes behind an ostrich feather curtain. Evelyn Varan seems to think so. At any rate she Is sending from Gay Paree her ideas of feathers in hat ornaments. And, oh my, some of them are almost like portieres. Other Paris modistes are quite as bad—or good, according to how you feel about having curtains attached to your head. The Turkish lady has nothing on the ostrich-feather girl who can re tire behind the uncurled feathers and make a complete getaway from staring eyes. The long, uncurled ostrich feather which adorns the black velvet after noon hat has a mate which shows a long feather falling over the shoul ders like a cape. It is expensive and certainly strik ing. Beauty veiled is as stimulating as beauty unadorned, according to these plume curtain designers. AVENEL Mrs. Mary Hrynak and Mrs. Joseph Utassy were Perth Amboy visitors yesterday.

HOROSCOPE The star* IdoUd but do not oon-psL' - ■ — Thursday, Sept. 15 (Copyright, 1921, by the McClure Newspaper Syndicate.) Main and Uranus are both in malefic aspect, according to astrol ogy.. This day has omen of ill, but all who aro forewarned may guard against the planetary influences which subtly affect the mind. During this sway mental sugges tion may bo potent as there will be unusual sensitiveness to thought transmission. Mars is in a place disturbing and conducive to irritability and even quarreling. The rule gives power to the brute forces in humanity and for that rea son it is well to safeguard the person and property. Increase of crime is,foreshadowed and there will be a strange distor tion of moral standards even among persons of station and education. Warning is given that scandals among persons in authority in busi ness and government affairs will be exposed in the public prints. Uranus is in a place today that is h^ld to encourage intrigue and mis representation. Women may be especially suscep “I'm No Reformer!” BY HOY GIBBONS CHICAGO—“Live and let live." This is the motto of Mrs. Winifred Mason Buck, who is seeking the seat in congress made vacant by the death of her father. Congressman William E. Mason. She is conducting her campaign from a tiny office on the Loop; her ammunition is a $200 campaign fund, a brief platform and a smile. The platform: “Legislation cannot cure evils; education can.” Mrs. Buck has been married sev enteen years and still has her hus band; also four children; she’s thirty-nine—and proud of all these statistics. Says she: “I’ve raised my children to rely upon themselves. Now they don’t need me as they once did. But I’ve got to be busy. So I’ve determined upon a career—a congressional ca reer. “I’m making a cleancut fight for the post. I shall not contribute ns much as a hairpin to any political machine. That's why I’m running Independently. "But I'm no reformer—not I! The women can smoke if they want to; they can bob their hair if they want to; and they may wear skirts and bathing suits to please their fancy. "Extremists get over it when they ■ get common sense, you know. Like puppy love, though, extremism thrives on •pposition. "Common sense cures extremism Common sense comes from educa tion. Therefore, what the country needs is more education. "I’m going to be a silent congress woman with a big ‘S,’ except when I have something to say that’s really worth saying. Then the world will j listen.” tible to this malign influence which may encourage them to dishonest transaction in business. The position of Uranus, which is on the cusp of the eighth house threatens many drownings and ex traordinary accidents. The rule is threatening for avia tion and no risks should be taken. Extreme caution should rule today. Persons whose birthdate it is should avoid worries and should pursue routine affairs calmly. Suc cess awaits wise effort.

Yet it was the story of the most marvelous machine ever created—and how the Imachinegets its power and does its work. That machine is the human body. Some day the mechanical expert of this machine — the doctor — finds out for us where we have missed the lesson and neglected the machine. | GRAPE-NUTS food was made in I accordance with the school book lesson on what the body needs and how its needs may best be supplied. It Is possible for a delicious food to be a scientific, “power" food. Grape Nuts is such a food. Perfecting Natural Gifts • T wenty hours of continuous baking has dine certain wonderful things to the ncu:l-'.;ing properties of whole wheat and malted barley flour, from which Grape-Nuts is made—and has produced a food in the form of crisp, golden-brown granules. You chew Grape-Nuts thoroughly. The rich, sweet flavor of Grape-Nuts is the reward of chewing. Nature meant the teeth to be used. Primitive people, who keep the natural teeth I sound anti perfect to old age, are eat ers of food which requires chewing. Grape-Nut gives the teeth work to do. Perhaps you remember a little of the physiology lesson, now—how the salivary juices respond when the food is thoroughly chewed — and the first important step in digestion is taken.

T.~u ■■^,,^1' .* X of all grains in the food elements re quired for human use. In Grape Nuts all the essentials provided by nature in these grains are retained and perfected. The long, slow baking process which produces Grape-Nuts turns the grain’s starches into natural sweetness and breaks up the nutritive solids into forms easily assimilated by the body. The exceptional nourishment from Grape-Nuts is secured with no tax upon the digestion. Penalties for Mistakes When the doctor, as the mechanical expert of the bodily machine, cornea to give advice in case of trouble, he finds that harm as well as good, often has resulted from food. “Starchy” foods have been the sub ject of many warnings. Food which passes too slowly through the digest ive tract causes disturbances to which much of the slowing down, wearing out, and failure of the bodily machine is traced. A characteristic of Grape-Nuts is that it digests quickly and completely— without fermentation in the intestines. A World Service There is, therefore, a reason why, throughout the world, Grape-Nuts has steadily grown in favor these many years, as a food for fitness, as well as charm to taste. You can apply that reason to your own benefit. Ready to eat from the package, al ways crisp, naturally sweet—served with cream or milk and a little sugar if desired — Grape-Nuts is an ideal dish for breakfast or lunch.
