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

"Say honey, you sure are taints

days! Jeanie teils me you had a t
wonderful basket of fruit at the j

that you were a good sport, abtut j

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,!

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

to please.
I met Betty at the Walgrave, and

"What a whimsical little thing
I you are, dear." laughed Betty. The
! Avenue isn't the place for us to

"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-

j trust you with his shopping every
j time," cried Betty. "The candle
i sticks are nice. I'll take them if

Jas steadily as I could manage. "But
j that bit of blue doesnt appeal to

j Tom Mason smiled almost depre
"Twenty-five dollars you said you

you, Mrs. Harrison, I'll let the

"Bo take them, Anne; they're
just the thing for Virginia," cried
Betty, completely satisfied with her
"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

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

spend less? I thought you said Jim

"Betty, you ought to be In the

But I didnt feel like laughing,
for at the price he had made, those
candlesticks almost seemed Tom
Mason's present to Virginia rather

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
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

I until with a commendatory frank

I that they had been the aggressors.
I "We had a tea party yesterday and

ourselves to your table—we knew
I you would not care": again, "I got

dows were being cleaned: and we
noticed your new picture."

known these people all my life I
might not complain, and should
have accepted the wordless protest
of my belongings that I felt the

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.

A Series of Plain Talks to
By Ray C. 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.

got into his head and you can im

the house. Please give me some

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
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."

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

he will be more easily influenced by
