"iVhat can 1 do for you. my good fellow?" asked the Fairy Queen, kindly. Nancy and Nick wondered at her s' od nature. The Twins thought of thu.r own impatience when their kitc3 got tangled in trees or refused to go as high as their little owners wished them to ar.d they resolved to Jo bettei in the future. The Fairy Queen seemed to know this for she looked over and gave them an ap proving smile. Then she turned her attention to the kite again. "Please, your highness, would you mind senul.ig wore! to Billy Brown's mother that I didn't take her pearls? answered the kite “She thinks that I stole them, but honest. I didn't You see the string broke and the pearls were fastened to my tail be cause Billy couldn’t find—" “Oh, hold on, hold on!” cried out the Fairy Queen. "What's all this? I can't make head ot tail of it?” "Neither could Killy,” answered tho bird kite mournfully. "That is, he couldn't find a tail to balance me when I was up in the air. A strip of old muslin would have done, but he rouldn t find a thing. So he hunt er around and all he could llnd was a string ot pearl heads on his moth er's bureau which ht tied on to me for a tail. "Then he took me out and let me fly away up into the air above the tree tops. But the wind was so strong that the siring snapped and the wind blew me up here. Now I'm afraid they'll think I stole the pearls.” The Fairy Queen smiled. "I'll send Twinkle Tee back with the pearls," she said, 'and Silver Wing will show you the way back to Billy’s house."

Mrs. Scott, you see that 1 couldn't? 1 had no profession—not a dollar of my own! Not even a clean name to offer her! Moreover, my future belonged to my father! It was up to his son to pay off his creditors!” £1 "I agree with you, Jimmy,” said W Motlierdear, “but I guess yours is not the business ethics of your time, dear boy!” “Since I was mortgaged indefinite ly to my father, 1 could not remind May of my existence. I caught the ship as my father had planned. May and my dad contended for first place in my mind during my voyage. “When .1 reached London, my uncle handed me a cablegram. New York attorneys informed him that my father was bankrupt. A second cable, that he was dead. A third, that I had disappeared. “The news of my father’s suicide paralyzed me. For I knew at once that he had deliberately driven his car over the edge of the quarry. You tan seo that I wanted to be alone to think things out .for myself. “I refused to go to my unclo’s house. In a London hotel, I stayed awake all night and figured out why tny father had tricked me.” "Ho sent you away to keep you from being connected with his mysterious death?” ventured Moth irdcar. , “To free me from any responsi ~fr» . I mnsiiinms i~i Diiuti ~i bility for the affair. I usually drove the oar—ho loathed being his own chauffeur. I knew the town—and so did he. People would say that I had run oft with what I could lay my hands on—and that the car—did not go over the cliff—by accident!" “The townspeople never would guess that your father sent you away because he intended to take his own life!*’ exclaimed Motherdear. "Why, didn't you return, Jimmy, and ex plain ?” "Did I care what the gossips thought and said? Not 1! And what else was there to come back to? The business was in the hands of a com mittee of my father's creditors. There was May to return to, but I had nothing to offer her.” "Your uncle—why did he not help you ?” "My uncle is a very successful man who despises failures. 1 and roy father were failures, to him. After a sleepless night in the London hotel I checked out and disappeared. I wandered hopelessly, aimlessly, like a soldier suffering from shell shock. “I had not been trained for a pro fession. I was to inherit my father's interests. One evening I wandered into a cinema palace. I wanted to forget, if only for an hour. “And there it occurred to me that I could support myself in the mo vies. I had made a hit as the vil lain in more than one college play. I look the part, you know May.” “I can't see that you do!” I touched my bandaged lids and Kitchen Hints Tempting Menus The housekeeper who would keep within her housekeeping allowance must watch her daily lunches. Luncheon should use up the left overs. But this does not mean that the noon meal should not be as at tractive and appetizing as any other. Tlie careful manipulation of left-overs is an art and every woman must needs study it. Left-over Lamb Baked y\lt!i Biee Two cups cold chopped lamb, 1 Vi cups boiled rice, 1 cup canned to matoes, 1 tablespoon minced onion, 1 tablespoon minced parsley, salt and pepper. . . l’ut a layer of rice in a well but tered baking dish. Add a layer ot meat. Continue alternating layers until all is used, having the last layer of rice. Season tomatoes with salt, pepper, onion and parsley and pour over meat and rice in dish. Let stand ten minutes. Then bake in a hot oven for half an hour. Serve this with broyvn bread and butter, home-made pickles, tea and ginger bread. Casserole of Vegetables One cup peas, 1 cup diced beets, 1 cup carrots, V4 cup lima beans, 1 tablespoon minced onion, 4 or 0 tlowerets of cauliflower, 2 table spoons butter, 3 tablespoons flour, 1V4 cups milk, 1 teaspoon salt, Vs teaspoon pepper, • 2 tablespoons grated cheese.| Melt, butter, stir in flour nnd add milk slowly, stirring constantly. Ar range tlie vegetables in layers in a buttered baking dish, sprinkling onion through each layer. Pour over sauce, cover with cheese and bake twenty minutes In a hot oven. Spaghetti with uuck™ One cup spaghetti, cooked chick en carefully picked from the bones and diced. % cup diced celery, 1 small onion, 6 olives, 4 tablespoons grated cheese. Boil spaghetti in salted water to cover for ten minutes. Cut olives from stones. The chicken may bo diced or cut in strips. If the chicken is cut in strips cut the celery in Shreds. Put 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan. Add chicken, celery, olives and thinly sliced onion. Shake over fire till brown. Put half the spaghetti in a but tered baking dish, add chicken mix ture, cover with spaghetti, sprinkle with grated cheese and brown in a hot oven. The spaghetti and filling are hot when put in the baking dish so the length of time the whole is in the oven should be short. If chicken is cooked too much when reheated it will be ’stringy and tough.

If there’s anything at all that will keep | a skin looking all glowy and soft and lovely it is plenty of ho*, water to drink and plenty of warm water to wash it with! I’ve watched it with so many girls that I’ve followed the trick myself! Haven’t a bit of use for this greasy cold cream way of cleaning skin! Of course, must have cold cream to protect the skin and I do use it to help in the removal of paint after a performance, but when it comes to real soil—nothing in all the world like soap and warm water! Same Regard for Hair A skin which doesn’t get its warm water bath must surely become thick and saggy looking instead of trans parent and exquisite as skin really should be. I have the same theory in regard to hair—wash it as often as it needs it—which in most cases, mine in particular, is once every two weeks. Tea and coffee 1 avoid. They tend o make one nervous and jangling nerves mean—wrinkles! A disturbed condition of the mind will spoil the nicest (kind of a skin—beauty isn’t uiy matter of magic! Can’t eat too many sweets—mean a splotchy skin, pimples perhaps! And a shiny nose! Fried foods I almost never eat— something else that isn’t good for the skin or the digestion. Fruits are really the thing I eat the most of. Two meals a day are quite enough for the average person. Strong for Walking And I don't believe in dawdling! Spoil the finest figure ami most beautiful skin in the world. Keep eternally doing, accomplishing while you’re up and about and then when you rest, rest every bit of the way. Don’t make either the resting or the working or the playing half way. Walking is the only exercising T ilo—that because I have time for nothing else. And I think for the busy girl who would keep in trim nothing Is better than brisk walking in the open air. Polly and Paul—and Paris By Zoe Beckley \ Storm Chapter 11 At last, when, despite Crenshaw’s comforting presence, Polly’s nerve.1 were at the snapping point, Paul's tall figure came into view—and close beside him, Violet. “Well—nothing to be alarmed about!” sung out Paul. “Perfectly simple explanation. We caught a 1 wireless from a vessel in distress far to the north—an S. O. S. If we had been the nearest ship, the law of the sea would have made it. im perative that we go to her rescue— putting us back twenty-four hours at lease. The ship hove to, so as to ho ready to change her course to ward the Grand Hanks. Hut they got word just now that another boat was closer by seventy ••miles—and she’s gone to the aid of the other. So that’s that. Cisten—the engines are pounding again. We’re off!” Paul and Crenshaw, after a few moments’ chat, went off together to the smoke-room. Between Polly and Violet passed the flash of hostility that follows a feminine rivalry— over some man. “f told you it was nothii.j dan gerous!” said Polly’s eyes. “And you’ve got to stop flirting with my husband!” “I told you It. was nothing seri ous!” said Violet. “And I won in tho tug-of-war over your husband!” They seemed to read each other’s thoughts. “You’ll he glad when tho voyage is over, 1 take it,” said Violet in a tone which added “You poor little | mouse/ who thought all a woman ! had to do was to marry him to make j a man hers for life.” “Glad—why?” snapped Polly. | “I’ve enjoyed every moment of the trip. Even this episode of the. ship stopping; why, it was almost amus ing to see how excited some people got over nothing.” ”1 suppose you moan me. Well, r assure you, Mrs. Dawson, there are times when mere serenity is proof of inexperience if not—stupidity.” They were both angry and over wrought. Polly’s claws, usually soft ly sheathed, now flew. , “There are some experiences T prefer not to have. As for stupidity, 1 r am not so stupid as to fling myself at another woman’s husband, to liis intense distaste—and boredom.” “J hadn’t noticed it,” Miss Hand stifled an elaborate yawn. “On the contrary, I thought he seemed inter ested.” ! “Paul is very polite,” scored Polly, unwinding herself from her wraps I and preparing to flee before she j burst into tears. “I suppose in Paris I —where life is so free and worth i while, everyone’s feelings are frank ly e: pressed. If you’ll excuse me I'll, go down for a nap.” Paul came into the dim light of their eabin a few moments later. “Polly! Polly, dear, I say, what ever have you been doing to Vio Hand! She says you had a regular cat-fight on Hello—why my own darling, what’s tlie matter! Tell me, dearest!” on her bed. hair in disarray, slim shoulders shaking. Now he bent over her tenderly. Polly answered only with renewed sobbing, pushing him away as she eaught her breath convulsively, He had never seen her cry.... lie had never dreamed she could push him away.. . . He knelt in an agony, one hand drawing her to him. the other groping for his handkerchief to wipe her tears. ' “G-go away! Go t-talk to your Miss Hand. She—interests you—\ don’t.” (A gust of sobs.) “J’m not a celebrity like her—a writer—and s singer and ev-rything. I’m only a stu pid—in-experienced—” Paul shook her gently. “Polly— you’re upset, nervous. You know 1 love every hair of your head—the ground you walk on—every breath you draw. I love—” She twisted from him. “Go away! Go back to—her! 1 want to be alone—alone—or 1 shall scream!” Paul left the cabin, closing the door softly after him. (To be continued) (Copyright, 19 22.

Jtut our love has its right—etc,— etc.” ThQSe who consider the old mor ality still workable for the general and individual good will appreciate another letter which shows what goes on in the mind of a wife when a too-romantic husband yields to forbidden charms. “1 have seen many complaints from girls who love married men and who swear they can’t live with out another woman’s husband, but never have I seen one from a young mother who had been cheated. “I am such a wife and mother. My experience probably is about the average. “Eighteen months after my mar riage, my husband left me for a girl.
