Helen opened her eyes drowlsly,
conscious that she had had a bad
night. Warren was sound asleep, and
she wondered vaguely what had waked
hep—lt must be quite early still, and
then Bhe heard Nora's footsteps and
the telephone rang. The bell must
have rung before and waked her, and
she lay quiet listening to Nora answer
"Mrs. Curtis isn't up yet, said Nora,
hushing her voice as much as pos
sible. Helen lay still debating as to
whether to get up or not. Somehow
»he knew that she wanted to, and
yet her body refused to move, and
she closed her eyes again and dropped
asleep. Later, when she awoke. War
ren had come in from his shower and
was brushing his hair. He looked
over at her as she stirred.
"Didn't sleep very well, did you?"
"Not very well," said Helen, yawn
'I knew you had a pretty poor
night—better stay in bed this morn
ing. I'll tell Nora, to bring in some
breakfast. You didn't sleep very well
while we were away, and this is just
the time for you to stay in bed.
There's nothing particular for you to
attend to, is there?"
"Not a thing. Warren, and if you
really don't mind I think I will go
back to sleep."
Helen closed her eyes and with a
clear conscience prepared herself for
sleep. Out in the dining room Nora
was moving around fixing the table
for breakfast. There was h pleas
ant sound of work in the air while
she could lie etlll and forget every
thing Warren finished his dressing
nnd went out into the dining room.
She could hear his spoon rattle
against his coffee cup and Nora's
voice as she asked him if he would
have another cup. Then the radi
ator began to hum a. little and she
was almost asleep when Nora came
In with a tray.
"Mr. Curtis has gone, ma'am, and
he didn't want to come in for fear of
waking you up again."
"All right, Nora; I really don't feel
a bit hungry. I don't think X can
eat a thing."
"There isn't much here, ma'am; just
a little, to hold -you till lunch."
Helen could not help smiling at
Nora's way of putting it, and she sat
up obediently and let Nora arrange
the pillows behind her and the tray
on her lap.
"This is so nice and comfy," she
jaid delightedly, as. she finished her
grape fruit and munched her toast.
"I'm afraid you'll spoil me, Nora, but
I do like to be spoiled sometimes."
Nora was putting things in order
about the room and stopped to regard
Helen for a moment.
"You're not looking as well lately,
ma'am, you ought to sleep in the
morning oftener than you do."
"Why, Nora, what do you mean?
Where do I look bad?" Helen was
always on the lookout for anything
that might affect her look.
'Just a little pale and sometimes
you look tired around the eyes. Mrs.
Curtis—nothing much, though,' re
assured Nora quickly, only you really
ought to be careful and not tire your
self out doing things."
Helen laughed. 'Nora, you're a
regular old Mother Grundy, she said
laughingly as Nora went out with ths
tray, and then she lay still again and
closed her eyes. She was almost
asleep when the telephone rang.
"Don't call me, Nora," she said as
Nora went past the door, and then
she listened as Nora took up the re

Hated to Go in Public. Cuticura

TlB N. 42nd St.. Philadelphia, Pa.— "At
Brut, ray skin broke out hi very "ne pimples.
They were inflamed and very red and they
Itched and burned me PO very bad that t
would scratch them until they bled. Wher
ever the blood from the pimples would touch
a larger pimple would come and it would be
very bird and sore. I thought my facs
would be disfigured for life. Instead ot
sotng away more came which would gather
and have a black tip on them. This mads
my face very bad looking and It ltr.hed all
the time so I could not sleep. I hated M

"I used and It made my fact
worse than it was. I used another remedy
for nearly a year but they would break
out twice as bad. T was worried nearly

reiver. Nora talked a long time, then
she finally said, "All right; hold the
wire and I'll tell Mrs. Curtis."
Helen just remembered that the
telephone had rung before that morn
ing and she had not asked Nora what
it was. Nora came into the room
"It's Mrs. Bob Curtis, ma'am; she
called up early this morning and I
forgot to tell you. I told her you
were asleep, but she insisted that I
ask you to come to the telephone."
Nora repeated her message me
chanically and looked disaprovingly at
Helen as she slipped out of bed and
threw a kimono about her.
Out in the hall she took up the
receiver and Louise laughed at her
across the wire.
Louise Iteproves Helen
for Being Lazy.
"You lazy old thing, what do you
mean by sleeping so late in the morn
ing? Ho you know it's the most won
Helen explained that she hadn't
slept well and was trying to make it
up. "I don't do it often," she ex
plained. "but Nora and Warren both
spoiled me this morning."
I suppose you don't feel equal to
a day downtown Christmas shopping,
do you? I thought if you did I'd let
you pick out your candlesticks to
"I don't suppose I ought to," she
said slowly. "I almost promised
Warren that I would stay in bed,
and Nora has been telling me how
pale I look lately."
Louise laughed again.
"I hadn't noticed it. However,
you'd better stay in bed, Helen, if you
don't feel equal to It. I'm a selfish
old thing to coax you this way."
"But T really want to come, so I
guess you can count on me, Louise."
While she was dressing the thought
I of what Warren would say kept com
ing up in her mind. He would be
sure to dislike her spending a stren
uous day shopping when she was
tired out, and she had almost prom
ised to stay in bed. Still she could
get home early and look as though
she was feeling well, and he would
never know. Of course, if he should
ask she would tell him, but she could
add that she felt so much better that
she hated to spend the whole of so
lovely a day in bed.
As she fastened her waist before
the mirrow she began to plan a mental
list as to what to give people. What
to give Warren puzzled her most. He
had given her a handsome surprise
last year. She ought to return it in
some way. And then there was
Louise; she must give her something
lovely in return for the candlesticks.
Christmas, In spite of its joys, was a
great trial. The only things that she
greatly enjoyed buying- were gifts for
Winifred. Somehow one was very
glad about children at Christmas.
This was Winifred's first Christmas
at home in a long time, and they
must make it one to be remembered.
She looked into the kitchen on her
way out. Nora was busy and looked
up as she spoke.
"Give Winifred some of the rice and
milk for lunch, Nora. Good-b.v, moth
er's little girl," as Winifred followed
he.r out to the door. "Be a good little
girl and play, and mother will bring
you something nice for a surprise
when she comes home to-night. Take
her for a nice walk, Nora."
As she went down in the elevator.
Helen wondered a little uneasily if
Winifred weren't too much alone.

WITH THE NEW
CtiOdren't Frocks as well at Grown
lips Gowns Give Evidence of Wider
8487 Girl's Dress, 4 to 8 yean.
It is a well known fact that children's
frocks always fotlow the tendency of the
gowns for the older folk. Just now skirts
showing plaits are a novelty and this
little dress is exceedingly smart. It is
simple, also, and easy to make, for the
body portion is quite plain and the skirt
Is simply plaited and joined to the lower
edge. Here Copenhagen blue serge is
trimmed with white and worn with a
patent leather belt but the frock is an
excellent one for cotton poplin, piqu4
and all the washable materials that are
so well liked for children's dresses. In
the back view, mercerized poplin in rose
color is scalloped with white to give a
very dainty and pretty effect.
For the 6 year size, the dress will re
quire sl/i$ l /i yds. of material 27, 2% yds. 36,
sH yds. 44. in. wide, with ft yd. 37 in.
wide for collar and cuffs.
The pattern 8487 is cut in sizes for 4, 6
and 8 years. It will be mailed to any ad
dress by the Fashion Department of thiu
paper, on receipt of ten cents.

DEAR MISS FAIRFAX:
lam twenty-three and I have been
away from nay parents anil relatives
for the past two years. I never re
ceive any news from any of thorn ac
cept a check J receive every two
months from my father provided I
About five months ago I met a
young girl to whom 1 aiu now en
gaged. From the day I left her to
this day both she and lier family,
with whom I am on very good terms,
think I am alone in this world, with
out parents or relations. Now do you
think I would be doing lier an injus
tice If I married her without telling
her the truth of my past life? At the
present time 1 can give her a reason
ably comfortable home, absolutely in
dependent from what I am receiving
from my father, as I have a position
paying $27 a weclt, and also my habits
of a fow years ago are a thing of the
past; also a thing she never knew, I
dare say I am an entirely new per
son from what I was three years ago.
P. D. Van D.
The first step you should take is
to seek a reconciliation with the
family you once shamed. Think how
proud they will be that the "black
sheep" ha* been reclaimed, has made
good and is working seriously toward
a fine future. Tho reconciliation will
complete your success, when you have
taken one other step. Don't start your
married life with a lie between you
and yur sweetheart —tell her of your
estrangement from your family, but
try to add to that the happy tidings
that you have won their forgiveness.

A Testimony From
If every man, woman and child knew the satisfac
tion and real happiness of having money at a specified
time—accumulated by small and regular savings made
each week and not missed—they would join the Se
curity Holiday Savings Fund, and have money for
Insurance, taxes, coal, or any other needs, and not be
worried when these payments become due. If you
have spent, during the year, money that you really
have nothing for, which is an experience of many, don't
do so the coming year. Make up your mind to have
something at the close of 191 S. If you listen to this
you will have. Join now.
