It Is not truthful, and women, •a every one knows, are sticklers for veracity. If complimentary, the compliment Is always too short, or It 1b not spoken Mud enough, ana of all aggravating things on earth none is more aggra vating than the oompliment whispered ■o low that the world doesn't hear it. Daysev Mayme Appleton's book, "The Duke's Love, or the Count's Despair." having won her such annoying fame that her picture appears in the street car advertising with her endorsement of cigarets, was approached by a re porter with a request for a personal description, and surprised the reporter with the suggestion that she write it herself. "Then," she added, "I know It will be correct." "My hair," she said, "Is beyond de scription for this reason: To-day's would not be true to-morrow, but as a general thing I try to make it the shade of tafTy candy that was pulled by a boy whose hands were not clean when he began.

Less than thirty years ago type writers could not be sold and the tel-1 ephone was but poorly patronized, | principally because of the lack of perfection in operation.

State and County Officials Inspect Condemned Bridge Mifllinburg, Pa., Feb. s.—An inspec tion of the condemned span In the large bridge which joins Union county and Northumberland county, between West Milton and Milton, now causing a great deal of controversy, was made.

Lie flat on the back, throw the hands over the head and stretch, push ing out first one leg and then the oth er. the movements coming from the hips. I assume that the windows have been open during the night, either partly or wholly, depending on the season; no one should sleep without a constant renewal of fresh air In tbe room. Repeat this stretching movement six or eight times; It will start the cir culation and give activity to the limbs. Breathing Exercises. Throw a looee wrap over the shoul ders, if the day is cold, and take an erect standing position before an opep window. Exercise Mo. L —Extend the arms, palms up, Inhale and exhale slowly through the nostrils, keeping the mouth always closed, moving the arms front and back, describing horizontal circles, mils opens the lungs so that the air has a chance to get Into the Interior and expands the chest at the ■ame time. Make twenty circles with the arms in this position. Exercise No. 2.—Place the hands en the hips, rest lightly on the balls of the feet with shoulders well back. Inhale deeply, entirely filling the lungs; exhale slowly, as slowly as pos sible, until all the air Is exhausted. Repeat this ten times. This exercise will strengthen the diaphragm and, if continued regularly, will reduce the waist measurement. Exercise No. 2.—Take from six to eight Bhort inhalations, expelling all the breath suddenly. Repeat this ten times. To finish, throw back the head and blow about an Imaginary bubble, mov ing tbe head from side to side. Thia Is excellent for neck development and will round and smooth out the throat. (Lesson X to be continued.) Their Married Life By MABEL HERBERT URNER Helen Experiences the Difficulties of a Peacemaker In a Lovers' Quarrel Helen glanced questionlngly at Louise's rlngless hand on which had glittered Bob's engagement ring. "I've returned It," briefly. "You thought you would goad him. into action?" persisted Helen merci lessly. Louise, who was crumbling a tea cake by her plate, did not look up or answer. "Oh, I could have told you it wouldn't," despairingly. "Bob's like Warren—he Just freezes up! He'll think you will wish It flnal." "Apparently that is what he wishes," returned Louise coldly. "Oh, no —no! He looks absolutely haggard! 1 can't tell you how he's changed in these fast few weeks." "And yet," Louise's dark eyes looked straight at Helen now, "he's never said a word—except that once?" "That's all he's ever said. But that's the Curtis nature —the more deeply they feel the less they say." The orchestra in the palm-fringed balcony was now playing "The Glow worm," and Louise's Hps quivered as she listened to the plaintive melody. She had refused to'go to Helen's apartment for fear Bob would think she was coming there on the chance of seeing him, but she had consented to meet at the Aastorltz for tea. Helen, who had not seen her for over a week, was startled at the change. She was much thinner, all her bright color had gone, and yet her very pallor had a loveliness of its own. , "Did I tell you father and I are going to Florida the 10th?" Louise asked suddenly. "To Florida'.'" "Yes, lots of people I know are at Palm Beach now. I'll go out like mad and forget," her laugh had a harsh note. "Does Bob know? Did you write him when you sent back the ring?" Louise shook her head. "I don't want him to know until I'm gone. He might think it only a ruse to influence him." "How long will you stay?" "Until April." "You'll be perfectly wretched," de clared Helen with conviction. "You'll be thinking of Bob every moment." "Possibly," admitted Louise coldly. "But I'd be thinking of him here, and I'll at least feel that I've rest6red some of my self-respect If I go away." "If I thought you could forget, I'd want you to go—for I believe there's many men who might make you hap pier than Bob ever could. But I know you can't, you can't forget him any more than I can forget Warren." "I can try," briefly. Then with a startled "Oh!" Louise put her hand to her throat. "That man—the one that's Just sat down at the table back of you! Doesn't he look like—" Helen turned. The poise of the man's head and shoulders was startl ingly like Bob's, but the full face view dispelled the likeness. "I loathe myself for it, and yet," faltered Louise, "whenever I see' any one that looks like him, it makes me sick and faint." For the last half hour a daring scheme had been formulating in Helen's mind, and now with one of her sudden impulses she yielded to it. "Oh, I've caught my heel in this hem, it'll trip me on the street," stooping over and examining a fold of her skirt. "I'll run to the dressing room and pin it up before I forget it," pushing back her chair. "Why can't you do that as we go out?" "It won't take a moment," hurry ing off before Louise could protest. Out in the lobby Helen made straight for the telephone booths. "Give me Rector 18025," breathless ly to the girl at the switchboard. "Number three," snapped the girl. Helen entered the third booth and tremblingly took down the receiver. "Rector 18025? Is Mr. Robert Cur tis there?" .... "Bob, this is Helen! I'm at the Astoritz having tea with Louise —she's going to Florida next week. Take a taxi and get here as quick as you can " "No, she hasn't said a word," loyally .... "But if you want to see her come—and come quick!" When slie came back to the table Louise was gazing out of the window, too deep in her brooding thoughts to wonder at Helen's long absence. "Let's have an ice," suggested Helen to prolong the tea. "You have one, I don't care for any," listlessly. For the next half hour Helen's thoughts were most disquieting. Had she done right? Should she have tried to bring these two together? Might it not be better for Louise if she should never see Bob again? And yet Helen's "love of love" was so deep-rooted that she had been power less to resist this impulse to tele phone Bob. Suddenly she saw him, tall, broad shouldered, coming toward them. Helen caught her breath. How much he looked like Warren; "Well, this IS luck! Already had tea?" "Yes, but we'll order you some," Helen's laugh was a little hysterical, ami she dared not glance at Louise. "Are you sure," he turned to Louise, "that I won't keep you ?" "Oh, quite sure," Louise's voice was low. but icy cold. "Do you often have time for after noon tea?" asked Helen, to give him an opportunity for the explanation she hoped he had prepared. "Unfortunately, no, but t had' to meet a man from the West here at 4:30. Just left him when I saw you. It's curious how many Westerners stop at this hotel. They used to go to the Aldorf." Louiao kept her eyes on her plate, but Helen could see her hand tremble as she toyed with her ice. Now came a silence, awkward, strained, which Helen broke with 9 nervous, excited. "Oh there's Irene Moore and her mother! I MUST see her!" The next moment she was out in the corridor flushed and tremulous. Had her excuse been too bald? But she HAD to get away! The strained situation had been intolerable. Helen, unconscious of her tightly clasped hands, her (lushed cheeks and her shining eyes, did not realize that she was being watched with interest by several men sitting around the lobby. But in a few minutes she in stinctively turned to the shelter of the ladles' dressing room and sank Into a gilded chair, her heart beating tumultously. How long must she stay away? What would be Louise's attitude? Might not she too "freeze up" If she suspected this was a plot? Would Bob be tactful? If only he would sweep her off her feet by his tender ness. But If he tried to argue—that would be fatal. Louise's pride had been terribly hurt. He would have to meet her much more than half way. What would he say first? Helen felt so much depended upon that, and the way he would say It—his voice, his attitude! But what if they should say noth ing—if they Rhould merely carry on a stilted strained "small talk"? What HAFRISBURG TELEGRAPH if Bob should not take advantage of their few precious momenta alone. To stay away too long would look too apparent, so Helen reluctantly re turned to the tea room. They were talking earnestly, Louise, with averted eyes, playing with the stem of her glass, while Bob leaned tensely toward her. At least they I had not been talking conventionali ties. But the expressions of both were baffling. Louise might have been flushed from either joy, or embarrass ment, and Bob's face was inscrutable. "I'm sorry to be so long, but I hadn't seen Irene for months," said Helen nervously. At that moment the waiter ap proached with the check, and while Bob took possession of it, Helen tried desperately to think of some way lie could take Louise home alone. It was plain that things were not settled. Louise was already drawing on her gloves, and as it was now almost six, there was no excuse for lingering. "Well, shall we move on?" naked Bob, as Helen turned to him expect antly. They made their way out through the lobby where Bob ordered a taxi. "Oh, I must go to Ardman's! I've got to—to get some silk before they close," said Helen hurriedly, resenting that Bob should leave all the schem ing to her. "All right, we'll drop you there." It was only a few minutes' drive to Ardman's, and no one spoke on the way. It was a relief when the cab drew up and Bob jumped out. "Is it all right?" whispered Helen, stooping to kiss Louise good-by. "I don't know," in a low, tanse whisper. Bob helped her out, and Helen called back a gay good-by to them both. "Store's closed, ma'am." The big doorman put out a restraining arm as Helen, absorbed in her thoughts, started in Ardman's. "It's after six." "Closed?" exclaimed Helen, bewil dered. It had been closed when they had driven up! How fortunate that none of them had noticed it! Shrinking from the glare of the subway just now, Helen walked on up the avenue. She was still trying to analyze Louise's whispered, "I don't know." Was all this scheming to be of no avail? Were these two impossible? Would they quarrel all the way home and part more embittered than ever?

TO BE BIT TONED I P CLOSE!A' OR ROLLED OPEN TO FORM REVERS. PERFORATED FOR SHORTER LENGTH. Loose coats such as this one arc made for so many occasions that there seems always a demand for a new one.

The coat can be cut off to half length if preferred, so that really the one model produces two. Again, when the belt is used and omitted, two different effects are obtained.
