" When a Girl Marries"
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problems-of a Girl Wife
(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

moment. Toward noon the phone

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

put up my hand and smoothed my

because I was ashamed of my van

the Rochambeau for lunch " he re
"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?"

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
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
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

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
"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.
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
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"
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
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
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
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
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.

may spoil your child's career. Com
panions properly directed by co-oper

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
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
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.

How to Conserve
Canning and Parking For Win
ter's Use Explained in Detail by
National War Gnrdcn Experts.
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.

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.

Advice to the Lovelorn
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.
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. Do you feel that as his wife you
could help him reach a splendid, fine
