" When a Girl Marries" By ANN' LISLE A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing Problems-of a Girl Wife CHAPTER XIV (Copyright, 1918. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.) On the morning after Jim went to Washington, I woke to the loneliness of my room in the Walgrave with a full consciousness of how ugly a hotel room can be. I began to wonder if Jim's train was in. where he would have breakfast, how early the war offices opened. And so it all come back t.o me! My husband had gone to Washing ton to be examined by a special board convened to pass on his fitness for active servicS, his fitness to go back to France. It wasn't patriotic or noble, but I turned over on my face and sobbed a little zig-zig rivulet down the pil- ! low slip. Then I. called myself a ; goose, got up and took my bath and i faced the astounding fact that it was only 8 o'clock and I had the long J day to get through somehow. To order breakfast sent up to our I room seemed impossible. To break- j fast in the cold formality of the Wal- | grave dining room was more impos- | sible. Suddenly all my loneliness and '■ longing for my Jim right-about-faced and concentrated itself upon one in tense desire to have my boy there to smile at me over his coffee cup. But he would not be there all day! Three lonely meals, set up like mile stones on the long day's Journey. I felt 1 could not bear them. And to morrow? I dared not think of to morrow. I smiled through my tears | as I decided to elude one of those I milestone monuments to loneliness. I could not touch a morsel of food now. I I plunged into a seance with Jim's khaki colored socks. I don't like | mending few business women do— | but 1 darned some of my love for my husband into the kindergarten mats! I put into toes afid heels. At 10 there came a telegram: "Arrived safe, fine trip: write later; hope you are well. Jim." Not a word of love—just a cold "hope you are well." 1 started to feel very mournful about that, and then I realized that it was from a j soldier not a husband. Still, the morning didn't rush by on winged ! feet as a result of that telegram! I There was nothing for me to do in I the room and there was nothing to j tempt me out of the room. The chambermaid's visit was a golden ' moment. Toward noon the phone rang. "Mrs. Harrison? This is Mason Tom Mason.

Shall I urge her?" I laughed: "Did you call me up to discuss the advisability of lunching with your pretty cousin?" He laughed, too not a deep throated. boyish chuckle, like my Jim's, but a staccato laugh that had a queer note of suspense in it. "X telephoned to discuss the ad visability of inviting ray pretty ten ant to lunch. Will she come?" . "Who is she?" I asked. "Well if she isn't a certain Mrs. Harrison there's going to be no ten ant. I have a sense of the fitness of things. That Italian living room of mine just belongs to you. my lady." It was rather exciting to be told that a beautiful Italian room 'be longed to me. I had seen pictures of lovely Italian women with creamy skins, smooth brown hair, amber eyes and coral lips. Did Mr. Mason think I was like them? With a van ity I had not known I possessed. I put up my hand and smoothed my hair. "I'm not sure we can take your apartment. Perhaps my husband won't want to bind himself by a leave —" I began, the more severely because I was ashamed of my van ity. "A telephone isn't the proper means for persuading an irate landlord to come to terms. Do come down to the Rochambeau for lunch " he re plied. "And chaperon Evelyn?" I asked pertly. But I felt a surge of relief. After all, I need not endure even yet one of those lonely meals that liad been the nightmare of my "bachelor girl" days. Talking to some one who knew Jim seemed to bridge the gap of lone liness between me and Washington. I arrived at the Rochambeau ten minutes late. I had calculated it so, for I didn't want to appear too eager in the eyes of the Mason cousins. On the broad, white-pillared par tico of the old-fashioned white frame hotel, stood Mr. Thomas Ma son. a smile of greeting of admiration in his lazy eyes. "Welcome, Lady Tenant. Thrice welcome. Your humble landlord greets you. May he say you're even lovelier than he—remembered?" "And where is my humble land lord's beautiful cousin?" I replied in the same bantering tone as I shook hands with Mr. Mason. "She phoned half an hour after I spoke to you to say that she was detained at some Red Cross meeting." "Oh. why didn't you let me know!" I exclaimed instinctively. "Let you know? And lunch alone! No, fair lady. Here's the Racham beau and here am I so why shouldn't you be here?" "It isn't proper. What would my husband say?" "Your husband would probably say. Buy her a good lunch, too!' " Mr. Mason was smiling with calm assurance. He slipped his arm through mine and prepared to lead me across the hall toward the dining room. "A nice little table for two over by the window. Louis," he said, nodding to the captain in the lordly fashion of a man who tips well. "I can't go," I whispered. I didn't want to make a scene, but I wanted intensely to get away. I had not liked it when Jim had breakfast and tea with Betty Brvce. I didn't want Jim's wife to lunch with Tom Mason! But he fairly propelled me across the room. A moment later we were sitting across from each other at a little white clad, silver-decked table. Then it was that I became frighten ed. I would makf? a scene if need be anything to get away! "I can't stay. ' I began again in a sort of panic. Ten days married, and lunching with a man I hardly knew! It was disloyal to Jim. Disloval to myself. Some "modern" wives be haved in this fashion but I didn't want to be so modern. "Are you afraid?" asked Tpm Ma son, leaning across the table and smiling at me with a challenge in his narrowing blue eyes. "Are you afraid of yourself—or of me?" To Be Continued.

(Copyright, 1918, by the McClure Newspaper Syndicate) (Contlnued.l The Kaiser always seemed to take a particular interest in American affairs, and while he professed to despise our form of government he watched very carefully the careers of our public men. It is not unlikely that he imagined, as I have pointed out elsewhere in these pages, that he could influence our elections by swinging the German-American -vote in favor of the candidate he pre ferred, and he made a study of our public men in order that he might know which of them would be more desirable in office from the German viewpoint. When Mr. Wilson was nominated for the presidency, the Kaiser was quite positive that he wouldn't be elected. Perhaps the fact that Mr. Roosevelt, for whom at that time the Kaiser had the greatest admira tion, was one of Mr. Wilson's rivals, blinded him to the strength which elected Wilson, but the fact that the latter had had little experience in international politics unfitted him, in the Kaiser's opinion, for the im portant office for which he was run ning. I saw the Kaiser shortly after Mr. Wilson's election. "I am very much surprised at the result of your election," he declared. "I didn't think your people would be so foolish as to elect a college pro fessor as president. What does a professor know about international politics and diplomatic affairs?" I haven't the slightest doubt that the Kaiser pictured our President as a counterpart of the typical German professor—a plodding, impractical, unambitious bookworm with no hope or desire of ever earning more than SI,OOO a year and no yearning for public acclaim; a recluse, absent minded and self-centered, who spent Daily Dot Puzzle ~A 42 4o • 47 • 43. * ' 48 7 38 .. • ; •38 45 - *4B M 35 V> S2 •SI 33 SO. 57 & *55 21 * BB '9* 29. * (,*> 28. .59 10. 2 2 8b "• * 27 W,r, 23 • *B° 12 b7 • 17* 24 .61 - . 10. • 63 4 2 S.

HAHJUSBURG TELEGRAPH! the midnight oil poring over musty, volumes and paid little or no atten tion to what was going on around | him! Such a man, the Kaiser un doubtedly believed, the United States had elected as its chief executive and his surprise was more or less natural in those circumstances. When Wilson sent 5,000 men to Vera Cruz, the Kaiser felt that he had exceeded his rights. "What right has Wilson to mix in the internal affairs of Mexico?" he asked. "Why doesn't he allow them to tight it out among themselves? It is their affair, not his!" Germany had many financial interests in Mex ico and looked with disfavor upon any move we made in that direction. When, however, the war in Eu rope started, the Kaiser made every effort to have America mix in inter national affairs provided we fought on his side. When I saw him just after the war started he said we ought to seize the opportunity to annex Canada and Mexico. "Can't your President • see the wonderful opportunity now for com bining with us and crushing Eng land?" he asked. "With our fleet on one side and America's on the other, we would destroy England's sea power. This is America's great opportunity to dominate the Western Hemisphere, and your President must see his chance to take Canada and Mexico!" i As the war progressed and reports reached the Kaiser of our increased shipments of munitions to the Allies, the Kaiser's impatience with Wil son became more difficult to repress, and there was hardly an interview I had with him in which he did not give vent to his feeling in that con nection. "My officers are becoming so in censed at America's attitude," he told me, "it will be impossible for me to restrain them much longer." When Japan declared war against him, he asked: "What is your President thinking of to allow a yellow race to attack a white race? All that America had to do was to raise a finger and Japan would have known enough to keep her place," and he ,added, disgustedly: "But what can you expect of a professor aud a demagog?" And when on another occasion. ©MAKING THE MOST OF- OUR CHILDREN \) A Series of Plain Talks to M By Ray C. Baary, A.8., M.A. ' ,/ President of the Parents Association. y* (Copyrighted, 1918, by The Parents Association, Inc.) Xo. 13. Are Companions Tencliing Your Children Bad Habits? IT'S true —a rotten potato will spoil a lot of good ones, if left with them long enough. And it is equally true that unde sirable associates can spoil your chil dren. But there Is this difference: No quantity of good potatoes can make a bad potato good, while a wise parent can do much to counteract and even change the influence of an undesirabl" playmate. A mother once said to me: "What can I do to keep my boy em ployed here at home? I can't tolerate his playing with those bad boys across the way. They are simply awful." And then: The mother of those very boys who were so "awful" came to me with practically the same plea as the first mother, only, of course, she was more than convinced that the other boy was simply ruining her boys. Both mothers were right in a sense. All of the boys influenced each'other. It was only natural for eaclt mother to overlook the fact that her boy influenced other boys. You, as a parent, should do two things: First, you should teach your child at home in such a way as to fortify him against the possible bad Influence of associates. Second, you should co-operate with each other as to proper supervision of the children. Instead of shooing little boys off the premises like chickens, show an interest in them. Give them some thing to eat occasionally. On the basis of the confidence which will re sult from this indulgence, you can rest effective demands as to the be havior of all children in your sight. Provide them with plenty of sug- he accused Mr. 'Wilson of discrimi nating against Germany, he made the remark: "Wilson's in the hands of the Wall Street group!' But perhaps the most bitter de nunciation I ever heard him make of Wilson was shortly after we en tered the war. I had been sum moned to the great army headquar ters to see him, and when he en tered the room he appeared to be in a towering rage. Indeed, his con dition was so apparent that the Kai serin, who was also present, sought to excuse him with the explanation that he had been very much upset and had been sleeping very poorly, and she asked me to treat him gen tly and tried to soothe him at the same time, but he told her to leave the room and resented her showing me that she petted him. We said little while I was at work, but when* I was through and was preparing to leave, the Kaiser stepped toward me and said: "Davis, Wilson is a real scoun drel!'' My face flushed. I suppose, at this insult to our President, and my re sentment was so apparent that the Kaiser immediately patted me on my right shoulder and apologized. "I beg your pardon, Davis," he declared, in a quieter voice. I know you're an American and I beg your pardon for hurting your feelings, but if you only knew, you would realize what a scoundrel your Presi dent is. When it comes to throat cutting, Wilson should have his cut first!" Just what brought about the allu sion to throat-cutting I haven't the slightest idea. It is possible that his conscience was beginning to hurt him a bit and he felt that if the truth were exposed, throat-cutting would be his fate, but in his anger at the thought that Mr. Wilson's at titude was calculated to upset his deep-laid plans, he would have liked to see the American President suffer the fate first. The Kaiser's rage was so signifi cant of the distress our intervention caused him, despite all his brave words to the contrary, that I must onfess that I was glad to hear him rave, and perhaps failed to show my resentment as emphatically as I might otherwise have done. I could see he was in a terrible fit of tern- j per and his abuse of Mr. Wilson | gestions for interesting and whole some activity and insist upon their executing the play or task in a be coming way. One mother made the mistake of approaching a neighbor in this way: "Mrs. Brown, I have heard your boy swear in front of Harold and I wish you'd watch him closely when Har old comes over because I don't want my boy to swear if i can help it." This of course did not have a very strong appeal. The better way is to suggest to Mrs. Brown that you are just now making an effort to teach your boy certain things and that you Would be thankful if she would cor rect your boy if he needs it when visiting. Do not say anything about her own children and the chances are Mrs. Brown will 00-operate and help you all she can. Too frequently we find parents who feel no responsibility when their chil dren are away from home. They fail to realize that moat children are at their worst when away and without any adult supervision. If you have not already made definite arrange ments about the Vise supervision of your children when away from your premises, you have an immediate duty before you. On coming to a new neighborhood it is wise to find the general charac ter of the children in the locality. Some quarters of the city are celebra ted for tough boys; others, on the contrary, boast of their well-behaved children. The difference lies largely with the schools, but surely also with the parents. Companions, without supervision, may spoil your child's career. Com panions properly directed by co-oper ating parents, may help your child on i his way to success. amused me instead of wounding me. It made me proud to know that the power of my country and the prin ciples for which it was fighting were causing great concern to the Ger man leaders while the German pa pers, to allay public anxiety, were belittling our strength! Whenever the sun shorie for the Kaiser, he grew so optimistic that he failed to pay the slightest attention to the clouds gathering on the hori zon. After the Italian collapse, for instance, he was so enthusiastic about his military success in that j arena that he failed to realize that America was slowly but surely forg ing the thunderbolt that was to strike him down. "Now how foolish it was for your President to bring your country into this war!" he said. "Americans will now see, when it is too late, what fools they made of themselves when they elected a professor for Presi dent. NOW AMERICA MUST PAY THE BILLS!" In this remark and ethers of the same import the Kai ser's expectation of being able to exact an • enormous indemnity as part of his peace terms was clearly indicated, and he felt that America, having profited the most and suf fered the least of any of the bellig erent powers, would be in the best position to fill his depleted coffers. The last time I saw the Kaiser when he mentioned the President was in the fall of 1917, shortly after Wilson had replied to the Pope's peace proposal. "Wilson is an idealist and an idealist can accomplish nothing!" was his comment. "He went into the war that he might have a seat at the peace table, but he will never get it. I shall prevent it!" Of Wilson's peace notes, which were issued before America went into the war, the Kaiser remarked: "I think I am right, the others think they're right. America has all the money. If Wilson really wants peace, let him pay the bills and take care of the indemnities, and the war will be over! It is very simple." There was no man of modern times whom the Kaiser seemed to admire so much, before the war, as ex-President Roosevelt. The Kaiserr was convinced that Roosevelt had prevented war with Japan by send ing the American fleet around the world and showing that it was fit. This brilliant stroke of statesman ship, as the Kaiser termed it. was a topic that he referred to on several occasions. It was a forceful dem onstration that was very much after his own heart. "What 1 admire about Mr. Roose ■ elt most," he said, "is the fact that he has the greatest moral courage of iny man I ever knew!" The fact that Mr. Roosevelt had given Ger many's fleet twenty-four hours' no tice to steam from Venezuelan waters didn't serve to lessen tho Kaiser's admiration for him. I heard him shower praise' on Roosevelt many times and I haven't the slightest doubt that he was quite sincere. After the war, however, when Roosevelt showed very plainly that no matterr what nice things the Kaiser might have thought and said of him, he certainly didn't recipro cate the feeling, the Kaiser was vepy much disappointed. "I'm terribly disappointed in Mr. Roosevelt," he declared. "After the way my wife and I entertained him when he was here as our guest, for him to take the stand he has is very ungentlemanly. I gave a great re view for him—the greatest honor I could bestow upon him, and a thing which had never been done for a private citizen. He was not presi dent then, you know. I used to ad mire him very much, but now I think the man has gone crazy and lost his mind. I never thought he would turn against us like that!" He did not seem to realize that a patri otic American owed allegiance to his own country. (To Be Continued.) Sugar-Saving Canning FRUIT JUICES 1. See that all equipment is. ready. 2.

UTILIZE HEAT OVER THE STOVE There is heated air constantly ris ing from the top of the cookstove, and this heated air is just what is needed for drying vegetables and fruits. If there is a shelf back of the stove, paper may be placed, and products to be dried spread over it. A tray with two sides two inches high and bottom of galvanized wire netting may be suspended over the stove, wire or cords brought togeth er from the four corners, making a convenient means of suspension. Wire window screening may be used for the bottom, but it is not as dur able as the galvanized netting. A tray may be made entirely of gal vanized wire netting turned up at the sides and ends two inches. A series of these, each base raised about four inches above the base be low, may be fastened together by strips Of wood or wire and the whole suspended. Write at once for a free canning and drying manual which the National War Garden Commis sion, Washington, will send you for two cents to cover postage. It con tains many illustrative drawings of directions given. A portable oven also makes a good top stove drier. It can be easily turned to distribute the heat, and the shelves can be shifted during the drying. The Commission will be glad to answer any questions written on one side of the paper and sent in a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Sugar-Saving Sweets Fruit Pastes Select fruit, wash, prepare. Cook until soft, stir. Add minimum amount of sugar or sugar substitutes as corn syrup, honey, etc., to sweeten. Con tinue cooking until very thick. Spread by spoonfuls out flat on oiled paper. Dry in slow oven; finish drying over kitchen range. Turn from time to time like griddle cakes. Nuts of all kinds can be dried in these cakes, which may be left whole or cut in strips with scissors. Fruit pastes may be made into bars or used as fillings for sandwiches. They may also be brought back with water and used for pie fillings or sauce.

J Advice to the Lovelorn WHEN THE MAN IS YOUNGER DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: Some time ago I became friends with a boy of 20. He is a fine boy, good character, fine disposition and holds a splendid position. Our friend ship grew to a love affair. What I want to ask you is. Could I be happy with a man four years my junior? My people and friends all tell me to give him up. What shall I do? My conscience troubles me, for he has always treated me royally. BERTHA. There have been numerous happy marriages in which the man was eight or even ten years younger than his wife. But in those cases they were generally both mature people man and woman. You at 24 are likely to be mature —a woman, almost —and at 20 your sweetheart can hardly be more than a boy. I don't want to advise in such a way as to cause either of you unhappiness. On gen eral principles I would say the boy was too young to marry any or.e. But perhaps just your few years' seniority would be a good balance wheel. You want to think it out carefully, con sidering not only your happiness, but his.
