'That you, Anne?" came Jim's ice over the wire a minute later, his is your night at the canteen, •t it?" 'No—-to-morrow," I replied, gath ng myself to meet something I ised lurking in ambush.

I felt a sob catch in my voice at I his irritation. "Oh, Jim, I'll be at the canteen to-morrow night!" I cried impulsive ly. "Can't you change your engage ment—so neither of us will have a , lonely evening?" , "Huh!" If that isn't just like a woman!" Jim's voice snarled back. "You do what you please when it i pleases you—calling it charity, or some fancy name—but I'm to change an engagement that is far more busi-' ness than naything else—though of course it will be pleasant, too." His voice modulated to amiability as if some one there hearing him had protested—l could vision that slim, oriental-looking Miss West pouting as he called his engagement a cold i blooded business one. My everready I imagination swung me away to more painful hurts than the actual in flicted by Jim's words, i "Oh, go ahead, dear," I managed • to reply. "I'll find something to do. 1 Maybe I can locate Evvy and Phoebe." i "All right—amuse yourself and I send the bill to me," replied Jim in a tone of relief. "And don't pout. After all, you get even by deserting me to-morrow night. Oood-by girlie. • Have to hustle!" , I hung up the receiver and turned away feeling utterly cast down. This was the drab anti-climax to a day of unhappiness and hurt, and im potent blundering. Suppose I did find Evvy and Phoebe—l wouldn't be welcome, and how with merely "a new French restaurant" as my ob ject, could I hope to find htem? It seemed to me that everyone was busy—everyone was paired off save of all the world. Drearily I went only myself. I seemed the "odd one" out into the kitchenette, put on a little spider and broke two eggs into it —then I noticed that I was still wearing my hat. I turned off the gas in the rings and went into my bedroom to slip into a negligee. The phone began to ring. "Go on screeching. I don't care!" I exclaimed vindictively, making no move to go out in the living-room and answer its summons. Louder and more insistent grew the silver shrilling of the bell. Of course. Hadn't I just answered the phone? The downstairs operator knew that f was at home. "Go on!" I reiterated stubbornly. "I won't answer. It'll be to Mason or Carlotta or Pat—someone who only gets me down deeper in the dust." Then there came a ringing at the hall-door. That I answered. It was the grinning elevator boy. "Don't you hear dat tellyphone, ma'am? It a-rlngin' fit to rouse the daid. And Nora she send me up to see if you all's all right," he said with puzzled Interest. "I—l'm just answering," I replied hastily. I hurried over to the summons which it appeared there was no es caping. "Hello" I said, impatiently. "Hello! Mrs. Harrison at the phone?" Rich and full and deep and kind a voice answered me. It was Anthony Norreys spunking. (To be Continued.)

And children are equally as keen when it comes to observing and prof iting by the results. In fact, some times they seem even more rational on this point. As an example, many parents have continued to whip their children long after the results show ed the method to be unwise. Children will use a method only so long as it is effective. When it ceases to "work,',' they soon drop it. But sometimes parents do not under stand this—the child discovers the means of securing attention and works the method hard so long as it pays. To illustrate, a mother writes to me: "This morning our boy aged three started the electric toaster as is his i custom. .He usually takes the bread oft the toaster also, but as the toast was burning the father took off one piece. Result—one dreadful howl. We gave it to him to put in again to pacify him; down on the floor he threw it. His father took him into the living room and talked to film but nothing would appease him; he howled and howled. Then I took him upstairs and tried to hold him in bed as punishment until we both were exhausted. Please tell me what to do as I am almost sick over it."- The out-standing point in the an alysis of your case is the fact that you have given this boy entirely too much attention at wrong times. For example, when your husband took oft the burnt piece of toast, and tho boy ,tg up a howl, you certainly looked upon it as an undesirable thing for the child to do—and it was —decidedly so. Then, in order not to encourage the very same kind of action in the future he should not have been rewarded for his conduct on this occasion. 'By giving the toast to the child to put in again, he virtually was rewarded. And scarce ly anything worse could have been done! The fact that this boy threw the toast on the floor after you offered it to him indicates that he probably has discovered on previous occasions that he can put others into a box. He finds a certain pleasure in getting others tp go clear out of their way to cater to his slightest whims. If wrong methods are continued, this boy later will be compelled to get some very hard lessons in the world. He will cause you endless trouble unless you start in at once to leach him that howling or screaming gets him absolutely nothing. Don't even talk to him when he starts a howl, much less try to do anything with bim. Simply pay the least possible attention to him. The big mistake that most parents make In dealing with a boy of this type is that they let the child's mood influence theirs and consequently they show temper. But this is very unwise. If you want the best results, show a calm but firm attitude, which sug gests to the child that you have the situation absolutely in hand. Then, you are in position, the moment the boy shows the least sign of a friend ly spirit, to respond to him courte ously and thereby reward him for his desired change of attitude. Your child's obedience as well as his self-control will practically be assured if you are consistently friendly, and at the same time, con sistently firm when firmness is re quired.

That's wrong. If we accepted it as so, we would be fooled a hun dred times a day. The fact is, not one of our senses deceives us so much or so oft,en as does sight. Why, wjiat we actually see in every in stance—that is, the image imprinted on the retina—is upside-down: it is only the familiarity with objects gained by our sense of touch that enables our brains to correct the in verted vision. No wonder that the blind man suddenly endowed with sight cried out that he saw men as trees walk ing. They appeared to him head downward with their . legs waving in the air. "Things are seldom what they seem," warbles Little Buttercup in Pinafore. "Skim milk masquerades as cream." So the truth is not that we be lieve what we see, but that we see what we believe. This was rather forcefully borne in upon me the other evening. A woman I have known quite a while dropped in to see me. She is a breezy, very much alive person, with a hundred different interests, so ani mated and buoyant that she is al ways good company. I thought as she came in that she was looking especially fit, her cheeks glowing and her eyes sparkling from a brjsk walk, her fur collar drawn up about her throat, and wearing a very be coming, somewhat dashing hat. As X say, I had known her, some time, but I had never stopped to consider her age. I had simply ac cepted her at face value, as one gets into the habit of doing with the peo ple one meets In a city. I knew, of course, she was beyond the first blush of maidenhood; but If I had been asked how much beyond I would have been puzzled to answer. Probably 1 should liave put her at about thirty to thirty-five years old. During the course of our conver sation, though, I happened to men tion another acquaintance of mine, referring to her as a "dear old lady" and speaking sympathetically of her infirmities. I have never hesitated in mentally assessing her age as in the close neighborhood of t'.ireo score and ten, and she looks every day of slghty. "Oh, do you know her?" said my caller. "Why, she and I came from the same town. We were school girls together." I stared at her in astonishment. "But—but," I stammered before I thought, "she must be years older than you?" She did not answer at once; then a grim little smile liittcd across her lips. "Not so much as you might think," she said. "I believe the difference between our ages is exactly five months." The conversation shifted then to other topics, but each time I looked at her during the rest of her call a more'and more marked .change seem ed to have taken place in her ap pearance. I noticed now that her neck—for she had thrown back her furs —was drawn and stringy; that her hair was touched up, that the corners of her mouth sagged, and that her face was etched with hun dreds of fine, little lines. She grew visibly old before my eyes. And as if her confession had loosed some measure of restraint she held upon herself, her manner per ceptibly changed. She was no longer the assured buoyant woman who had come in at my door, but querulous and uncertain in her tone, even a shade pessimistic. Imagination, you will say. Pos sibly: nevertheless my "whole im pression of that woman has been altered. Before that evening if I had been a big man seeking some DON'T FUSS WITH MUSTARD PLASTERS!

She seemed to me the embodiment of that self-reliance end "pep" and initiative which ac complishes results. But now I am sure I would pause and reflect. I would be afraid that she would prove pokey and slow. Even if I took her I would be constantly watching to see her exhibit some of the limita tions of age. I see her as old because she has made me believe her so. . It always pays to put your best foot forward. The world takes us largely at our own valuation, and of all the handicaps that you can put upon yourself self-depreciation is probably the worst. Where Do You Buy Your Ice Cream?
