" When a Girl Marries"
By ANN LISLE A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing Problems of a Girl Wife CHAPTER LXXXIV. (Copyright 1918, by Kings Features Syndicate, Inc.) "Say honey, you sure are taints things by the smooth handle these j days! Jeanie teils me you had a t wonderful basket of fruit at the j new apartment to greet her. and j that you were a good sport, abtut j Neal's ring. What struck ' you?" ! asked Jim a few days after Father j Andrew's return home. "Well—my folks are pretty fond j of you, and I got jealous," I replied i half seriously. "So now every time I look at Virginia I say to myself j 'l'll get you yet.' " "You darling!" Jim cried. Then j he reached in to his pocket. "Well,! suppose you start things ofT by tak- j ing this twenty-Ave and getting her : a real house present something scrumptious.' "That's a lot of money, Jim," I j began, but the ominous flash in j Jim's eyes warned me, and I went j on in an altered tone: "But I guess we can spare it for your 'Jeanie,' j and to make sure I get the right, thing I'm going to call in Betty as j consulting physician." I had my first reward when Jim ' gave me a delighted hug before he went oft to the day's work—-and my j second came with Betty's enthusi- i astic acceptance. "Annie, dear, how sweet of you j to say you count on my good taste ! and my interest in my friends. The | truth is, I'm a regular Mrs. Fix-It! j I'll love shopping with you. How j about a bite at the Walgrave first?" i "I'd love it, Betty. Oh. Betty, j that's perfect!" I cried almost daz zled by the first results of trying to please. I met Betty at the Walgrave, and after lunch we set oft for a tour of ' the Avenue. But by the time we I had come giftless from the dozenth j shop, my niagnillcent twenty-five! had shrunk so it looked like pen nies Instead of dollars. An amber colored enamel box in one shop, a pair of Chinese porcelain candle sticks in a second, and Anally an old-silver bonbonniere were pounced upon by Betty as 'just the thing' and discarded as each turned out to be priced far beyond my allotment. "What shall we do?" I cried In despair. "You know just what j woifld appeal to Virginia and S|p|| BRASSIERES By - worn in connection with W. B.

"What a whimsical little thing I you are, dear." laughed Betty. The ! Avenue isn't the place for us to ' day but I've thought of the solu | tion. "What we'll do is trot to your | landlord's studio. Naturally he isn't as expensive as these big shops, i : and he'll give you a special price, I no doubt." "No doubt." I echoed, blankly. | ! How was I to tell Betty that I : didn't like my landlord < — that I 1 shrank from the thought of going jto the studio? I couldn't register any protest that sounded sane, so j I had to let Betty trot me up to the 1 Mason offices. i Tom Mason announced that he had just the gift we needed. He | produced a wonderful pair of black j cloisonne candlesticks, and then, j with a meaning smile at me, he I laid under them a bit of blue and j green and shot-silver silk, heavy ! and lustrous. It was like the blue j robe that lay hidden in the carved ! chest. "Wonderful! Virginia will be de- I lighted, and Jimmle's going to j trust you with his shopping every j time," cried Betty. "The candle i sticks are nice. I'll take them if | they aren't too expensive," I said Jas steadily as I could manage. "But j that bit of blue doesnt appeal to i me." j Tom Mason smiled almost depre catingly: "Twenty-five dollars you said you j wanted to spend, I think. Well, to you, Mrs. Harrison, I'll let the I candlesticks go for twenty and • add the blue brocade table cover j for five more. They really belong ! together." "Bo take them, Anne; they're just the thing for Virginia," cried Betty, completely satisfied with her bargain. "So they're for Virginia Dalton! Odd I'm expecting Pat in here presently. Stay on a bit and we'll take you to tea," Tom suggested jovially. , I winced —• but Betty seemed to I find Tom rather amusing.

"Now, If Mrs. Harrison is satisfied, I'm ready to conclude our shopping. We will let you send the candlesticks and tapestry to Mrs. Dalton and Just run along." So I paid for the gift, gave Tom Mason our cards and Virginia's ad dress and hurried out of the shop after Betty. At the Btreet door Betty stopped in nervous indecision. "I wish wo hadn't left Virginia's address, Anne. Oh, well, it's done now, so I won't worry. But what ever possessed you to hesitate over that adorable bit of tapestry. You surely don't know much about bar gaining, child—or did you want to spend less? I thought you said Jim Insisted on twenty-five and It would have been silly not to get your money's Worth wouldn't It? Didn't you like that glorious blue and silver?" "Betty, you ought to be In the district attorney's office." I laugh ed, evading a direct reply. But I didnt feel like laughing, for at the price he had made, those candlesticks almost seemed Tom Mason's present to Virginia rather than mine. (To Ik Continued). Life's Problems Are Discussed By Mrs. Wilson Woodrow. I have a letter from a girl who asks my advice concerning a situ ation in which she has been placed. She Is In New York studying, and lives In a boarding house here the people seem aware of the general conventions of social Intercourse: yet she ha? been made the victim of prodatoty neighbors In such a way that she does not know whether to let the thing go on or to take notice of It and stop it. Her own good breeding, she days, stands In awe of the prowess with which this pair secure privileges that are not theirs by any right of gift or permission. Yet, it seems so trivial in a way, and .her neigh bors—two sisters—take it all so much us a matter of course that the girl hesitates to take a stand lest she be making a mountain out of a molehill. She leaves home early In the morning, locking her door and hang ing the key in a place known, she supposed, only to the maid and her self, that the maid might make up the room when ready. She returns at 5 in the evening, often tired and wanting rest for a few moments; and yet she says that the moment she enters the room she knows that some one has been there before her —how long sho cannot tell, but an "alien presence breathes an atmos phere there." i A book is displaced. Her sewing j basket is disarranged. A picture or I a photograph is not In its accus tomed place, the pillows on her j couch bear the imprint of the lan guor of an occupant Other than her | self. I It was all baffling and irritating I until with a commendatory frank : her uninvited guests remarked I that they had been the aggressors. I "We had a tea party yesterday and j went Into your room and helped ourselves to your table—we knew I you would not care": again, "I got i the maid to let me use your window j for drying some of my neck wear , which I had washed": and we had to use your room today, our win dows were being cleaned: and we noticed your new picture." Now as the girl writes, "If I had known these people all my life I might not complain, and should have accepted the wordless protest of my belongings that I felt the ;; The Quick Way to ;; I!

HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH! moment I entered my room; but they are mere acquaintances, and they have not the slightest claim upon my good nature or my time and friendship." She has gathered about her all the things that make home for her in a strange city, and this is her home —for the time being. Her pictures, her belongings, bespeak long asso ciation—some of them, sentiment and that association, which makes our belongings dear to us, and this is the fundamental upon which the home-coming instinct lies. All of these things have been at the mercy of a careless, perhaps critical invader. One likes to #*e stow privileges, not tb have them seized; one likes to invite people, not to have hospitality invaded. Moreover, in one small room there Is that atmosphere of self created in which one rests, takes comfort. No wonder the girl felt that some one had been there "the moment she entered the room." Privacy amid our own belongings is a blessed privilege—one of the boons of civilization has made for us— and no one has a right to in vade it. Most people oling to this and guard it with Jealous care. Since Germany has taught so many things concerning personal rights we are made aware of the spirit which asserts, "I want, there fore I take," in many people about us; and it is Just as well to crush it with relentless vigor. The rights of mine and thine should be Jealously guarded, a per ception of them carefully inculcat ed. Germany has placed herself as enemy to every nutlon of ilrst-class importance by neglect of this fun damental of civilization and com mon honesty. Easy taking and getting breed indifference to the rights of mine and thine in national or personal affairs; but social intercourse as equals is not possible unless that unwritten scrap of paper be kept intact, which makes the covenant of guarding mine and thine with equul care. If my correspondent had a&- serted her rights at once and safti the first time that she found her rights invaded that no one was to enter her hoom in her absence and firmly insisted on it, even questioned that easy manner of entertaining and taking possession, she would have won both respect and consid eration. It might possibly have hap pened again, but she would then take a more definite stand and herself the victim' of persons who have kept out her invaders. Neglecting to do so, she made selfishly use what and where they can get. And these people always need the sharp hand of discipline, as my correspondent will learn as she goes farther along In life. Take one's right in both hands; never encroach on another's, and many, little annoyances will smooth themselves out automatically. Be sure what one's rights are; but certainly they are in one's home, one's precious possession of privao'. Then stand firm. Allow no one to invade. Demand your right to bestow hospitality, and many cases for social war will smooth away without the need of diplomacy brought into play. PRINCE OF WALES TO VISIT U. S.

Beery, A.8., M.A President of the Parents Association "Look out the window—what in the world is that child up to now?" asked a mother as she started for the door. And the variety of stunts an active-minded boy can pull off in the course of a single day, it really is a wonder mothers have as much patience as they have. Some children naturally are more mischievous than others. A mis chievous boy generally is a bright boy. Of course, a child can be bril liant without being mischievous. The difficult task of the parent is to keep up with a child of the mis ! chievous type—to be one Jump ' ahead of him, %o to say. Let us take an interesting case, A mother writes to me: "I have a boy that is up to sonic mischief every minute almost. It seems that *he Just must be into something continually. He not only annoys us but often the neighbors. This morning he took up a brick walk in carrying out some idea he got into his head and you can im agine what .he does when he is in the house. Please give me some suggestions." I like a boy like yours who is "in the "up and doing" class. lie is of the hopeful type. Show an earnest interest in all of his activities. Talk about his ideas and plans with enthusiasm. Get him gradually into the habit of talking over his plans with you be fore putting them into execution. Of course, he will not always do this, but by making him feel that he is rewarded for coming to you by adding suggestions and enthusi asm to his original ideas, he will be much inctined to consult you. This will be desirable from your stand point because, when you find it necessary, you can direct His mind away from that which is to be for bidden and toward that which is permissible. By showing a friendly interest al ways in his own schemes, you make it easy for your own suggestions to Influence him. To "keep up with" a boy of this type, it is often con venient to make suggestions as to what to do, tho execution of which will occupy a great deal of time in a way that is least disturbing to other persons and things on the premises. For example, play up in his mind the desirability of attract ing some fine birds to your premises. After he shows an interest, ask.him if he knows enough about using a hammer nnd saw to make a suitable bird box himself in which the birds could make nests. Help him with the plan. Have him come to you often to ask questions (and inciden tally get more enthusiasm). Or, have him make some flower boxes for you to use in the house. Just anything to keep htm occupied in a helpful way. Always keep ahead of him with a few ideas to make use of when you most need them. The next time he does anything like taking up a walk without ask ing, call him to you without any sign that you are disgusted. When he comes, talk to him somewhat in this manner: "Charles, I don't want to say anything to you that will make you feci badly, but after this, when you want to remove a walk or anything like that come first to mother and find out if it is all right. You can remember, can't you? Can you put the bricks Just right with out me helping you? All right, I'll be out pretty soon and watch you and see how you are getting along." Each time Jhat he forgets, "take him to task" In the quiet, friendly AS YOUNG AS YOUR KIDNEYS The secret of youth is ELIMINA TION OF POISONS from your body. This done, you ctn live to be a hundred and enjoy the good things of life with as uiucb "pep" as you did when in the springtime of youth. Keep your body in good condition, that's the secret. Watch the kidneys. They filter and purify the blood, all of which blood passes through them once every three minutes. Keep them clean and in proper working condition.and you have nothing to fear.

Get them from your druggist. Do not take a substitute. la sealed packages— three sizes. manner suggested nbove. A boy such as yours will always make mis takes. lie has sq much energ>* and Initiative that he is bound to do for bidden things sometimes. But if ho is guided properly in the right spirit, lie will come out all right. The best way to get this boy to be careful in certain rooms of your home is to emphasize that there is some one room perhaps upstairs in which he can "cut up" all he pleases. And then make it a point to contrast what he can do in that one room with the quiet demanded in the rest of the house. Or, if you feel that you have not enough space I in the house to allow him one for "rough house," contrast whit | he can do in the barn with the ihe must act in the house. I have j found that this idea of contrast is a | helpful one because it suggests your | sympathy and co-operation witb him in his needs for an outlet to his en ergies. Indulge , him frequently by playing rough with him in the place 1 designated for lively play and then he will be more easily influenced by your contrasted quiet attitude in other places and circumstances.
