" When a Girl Marries"
By AXi' JJSLE A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing Problems of a Girl Wife CHAPTER LXll t At the sound of Jim's voice I Terry took Anthony Norreys by the | shoulders ant fairly shoved him out of the hail door. Tlien he put his lingers to his lips to impose silence and hurried with me to help Jim into the room. My boy had slipped into his gray lounging robo and was hobbling painfully out of the bedroom with the aid of a cane. 1 wondered how much he had heard of Terry's whis pered scheme to aid him. But Terry didn't stop at mere wondering. He took the bull by the horns and pro ceeded to find out. As soon as we'd established Jim on the big couch, Terry plunged into an explanation: "1 stayed for a chat with the Missis, Jimniie and a tine little chat We had. Was it loneliness or i I My Stomach Was Bad; Had Pains Around Heart says Mr. E. Cans. 100 Liberty street, Harridburg. "My stomach was very I bad. I would bloat with gas and the pressure would cause pains aroundj my heart: had sharp knife-like pains j under my ribs and under my shoul- i dor blade. I think it was my liver, j had gripping pain in stomach after j , eating. "My head and throat were full of ! catarrh and I was always liawkina. : 1 would get a swimming in my head I and a dizziness, and felt feverish. I j heard of Sanpan and gave it a trial | and all the above conditions are' gone and I am full of ambition." Sanpan is being introduced at Kel ler's Drug Store, 405 Market street, Harrisburg. ■graiaHßMflßßmßH Garments of Quality wnmmmaMmKmmUßM Eleventh Hour Xmas Shoppers Rarely Get What They Want Buy Now.

"Terry, you rogue—l'd misdoubt the tine boy's heart and the square soldierly honesty of you us soon as I would the love and loyalty of my Lilac girl here —and that's never!" declared Jim with a smile that was all tender sweetness and had no undercurrent of meaning. Rut it hurt —it hurt cruelly. With a suggestion intended chief ly for me. Terry replied gravely be fore he rushed out to join Nor reys: . "You.'re right, lad; next to your little lady and our Betty there's no one wishes you better than Terry- Winston, as I hope you'll always understand," Then he ran out, banging the door briskly—to relievo his feel | ings no doubt—and Jim. gazing at I the sfcot where his friend had stood stanch and firm in the door way, made a queer comment: " 'Our Betty.' he said. Did you I hear him, Anne? T think he wishes often that lie might say 'my Betty.' I And which of the two is worse haunted by the ghost of Atherton j Bryee. I often wonder. And I won der still more if poor Atherton was worth the sacrifice of two lives?" As he spoke I perched myself precariously on the edge of Jim s I couch. My boy slid his arm from ! under the cover I had thrown over him and drew me close against his heart. I stooped and put my lips to his forehead and then my hand ! found its way into the broad rip ! pies of his dark hair. Neither of us | spoke. The silence seemed to en fold us gently. In the peace of that moment 1 felt anew lw W utterly njy ! Jim and I belonged to /-ach other— "in sickness, in health, for richer, for poorer." A peal at the doorbell brought us back from dreaming.

"I—l just couldn't wait any longer. I wanted to see Jim, and Virginia said 1 might bring him some grapefruit and this little Del monico steak." she whispered, lin gering on the threshold and wait ing timidly to be asked to cross it. "Come in, kiddie: come over here and kiss your big brother and make him all well!" shouted Jim with surprising vigor. Phoebo pattered over to the couch with a cry of delight: "Why, I thought you were siek!" "The doctor, and even so eminent an authority as your sister, Mrs. Anne Harrison, labored under the same odd impression. But a torn ligament doesn't take toll of an. ex-soldier for long. Phoebe. 1 think if all this scarlet and gold and bronze-brown loveliness would stay and dine with me I'd be well enough jo-morrow to go out and see the rest of tho Autumn in stead of having it brought to me." Phoebe giggled in high delight as the invitation to remain was seconded by "the lady of the house." But I wondered if Jim was uncon scious of the fact that now, of course, Xeal would escort Phoebe | home. X had an idea that all this j delight in each other which Jim J and Phoebe' were showing had j really depths of which neither was j conscious. Wasn't Jim pathetically | eager to bo put in touch with Vir ginia? And wasn't that blinding him to Phoebe's probable desire to see Xeal again? Phoebe insisted on helping me get dinner, and while we worked a new problm assailed me. Terry had said 1 need only keep silent in order to further his scheme — but, as a matter of fact, wouldn't 1 have to coach Xeal for his part in it? With this in view I begged Phoebe in to entertain Jim, about two* seconds after Xeal got into the house, a'hen, hardening my heart to her hurt little glance, 1 turned to Xeal. Rut he spoke lirst: "Anne, have you ever told Jim about my paying you ten a week?" "Xeal, why do you ask that so brutally?" I demanded angrily. "Well, have you? Answer me?" "Xo—there seemed no reason—it LIFE'S PROBLEMS ARE DISC VISED In so many of tlie letters which reach me I tind the same complaint: "I am so tired of it all. I feel as if 1 never COUld go on." And that is natural when one has been struggling with adverse conditions or attempting to solve a problem all at once. But in every one of us exists a reserve force which is generally unsuspected by us, and by drawing on it after strength seems to have gone com pletely one is led often to supreme ac complishment. It is as if accomplish ment were made possible by that quality which is stored up in reserve force. People call this "second wind." A race horse expends liis -strength ap parently in the lirst rush; but his trained and experienced observers know that the thoroughbred lias a i tremendous reserve force and that at the supreme moment he will call up on it and most likely be carried over with flying colors In the tinal dash to victory. We have seen it demonstrated again i and again m this present war. It is the dogged determination to hold on which brings up that reserve force and wins out finally. Men bred to all the soft filings of life have, withput a murmur, accepted conditions they would have denied ability to accept in times of peace. They have worked and planned, achieved and suffered as they never dreamed that they could, using the force Which lies in each of us. and proving, what Professor James asserted some years ago, that we only ( use one-fourth of our brain power: j that We have unsuspected abilities and powers that we never dream of using. Women draw upon this reserve force perhaps more than men, for tliey have shown themselves capable of greater endurance in tests which cause wonder ill those who see its demonstration. Tliey have not the physical force, but they have the greater staying powers. Men use this force when they have I some great stake in the balance. They j will go without sleep and food, or change of clothing until they have! solved their problem, and then, after i a bath, a change of clothes, they will go out unaware that tliey have been under any great strain, and demon strate to a public what they have solv ed under tin- strain. The annals of this war when we get them will show us human nature under severest strains and answering to the whip of command on one's self in results of tremendous significance. And in every instance that very ef fort will have strengthened and de-1 veloped character and made easier the solving of the next problem to arise. 1 know a woman who works at a tremendous strain from 9 to 5. Four j years ago, she says, she never dream- j ed that she had strength to do it. I When she leaves her office she casts j it all aside, goes home, jumps, she i savs, into another personality, j changes her clothes and mental out look and is ready for amusement. She lias won not only professional suc cess, but health of mind and body and —good looks. Yet there are many people who can not cast aside their worries. These | are, wgth them always. They are tlie | problems of the home and family. , The monotonous over-and-over that | wears on the nerves and spirit. But j resignation is deadening to vital force j and there is always some way out. | Sometimes these thieigs are just the, obstacles that will bring from our re- , serve force the rejuvenating essence ; that clears the mental eyes and opens : them to greater visions than we j dreamed of. Did Pershing, plodding over the, dusty roads of Mexico, hunting an elusive bandit, putting up with su-i preme inconvenience a-nd hampered ; by international complications, lose j heart? Did he, when, In the enervat- j ing climate of the Philippines, chas ing rebels In the mountains, repine be cause he was not in Washington in the soft places of the department? | Not a bit of it. He was often drawing i on his reserve force, keeping himself | up to his ideal of a soldier, studying, j spurring, saving his men and storing up the knowledge, the experience! which has enabled him to supplement! with his men our Allies at the most | critical moment: even to urge them thrown into battle before foreign commanders were sure they were ready. He knew his men. Ho had ) been with them—as Americans—in, times of trial. He was as sure'of thetrt mettle as he was of his own. Yet hi never dreamed. I dare say, of such l thing when plodding day after sla' I over the dusty deserts of Mexico, av- j during heat nnd cold, and keeping t himself, evten there, the perfectly a>- I pointed soldier, an example aid | model to his men. Edward Rowland Sill's poem, "#p portunity,' is a fine Inspiration to might have hurt his pride—ilvant- | ed to spare him." "Exactly.

I swallowed a lump inlay throat and prepared to protest, put before I could say a word the p*one shrill ed out its command. Xeal and 1 stared at/each other for a second. Then mfstening my lips, anil throwing bael my shoul ders in simulation ol oourage, 1 hurried over and laid ny hand on j the doorknob. Phoebe met me in he doorway. "1 answered. It's Virginia—she wants to speak to yof. Anne." Virginia! Her p/ontng meant reconciliation and iapplness for Jim. 1 must be cari'ul to pay the right thing. A bit unsteadily I put the re ceiver to my ear. /tit it was Bet- i ty's voice—not Virjfnia's —that re- j sponded to my gree'ing. To Be t'otinucd any one tempt erf to give up.
