" When a Girl Marries" By ANN LISLE A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing Problems of a Girl Wife Chapter CX (Copyright, 1919. King Features Syndicate, Inc.) "You were out to dinner with An thony Norreys!" Jim's voice choked and sputtered in his throat, and with sudden rage he drew away from my arm and hurled himself to his feet. "Out with Norreys—what d'you mean by that. Anne?" he demanded. "I won't ha\ it! My wife shan't make a monkey of me. What d'you think I am made of—milk and water? What d'you take me for, anyway? Well —why don't you say something? Are you going to lie there blinking up at me with that baby stare all night?" "Why, Jim," I cried, "Jim. you said you'd go your way and I should go mine—that we'd be pals. I—l haven't done anything—al though I thought you meant " "Faugh!—meant that my wife should gallivant around with a rich old cripple and make me a laughing stock —Uriah to his David." "Jim —Don't!" I couldn't have said more. Jim was insulting me. To explain that Betty was with us all the while seemed to me now only a compro mise with the thing that was at stake—Jim's faith in me, his belief in Anthony Norrey's decency—and manhood. I have heard women say that they're never sure of a man's love until they found their power to rouse jealousy. I had never doubted Jim's love until his jealousy was aroused. Even his toleration of Tom Mason's insolent attentions was not as bad as this. I sat silent—propped up on my arm —speechless. Vaguely I noticed that my hand was "going to sleep." But I didn't change my position. "Confound it, aren't you ever going to say anything?" stormed Jim. snatching off his overcoat and flinging it vindictively across the foot, of my bed. And then I got cold all over, as I do when I'm furiously angry. "Don't you dare swear at me!" I commanded in a cutting voice. Jim sneered and rasped out an ugly laugh. "Confound it, Anne, you're lucky I don't turn loose a few real cuss words. You've lied to me—and I won't have it! Do you hear me?" "I have not lied to you. I don't care to discuss anything with you while you're in your present condi tion." I said coldly. "Go to bed and in the morning—when you're fit to talk to—l'll tell you about my per fectly respectable party, and prepare "SYRUf OF FIGS" CHILD'S LAXATIVE Look at tongue!

An Easy Way to Apply Medicine Catarrh and Colds Relieved by Smoking a Certain Combina tion o£ Medicinal Herbs, Leaves and Flowers Smoking is a very simple method by which medicine may be introduced into the air passages of the head, nose, throat and lungs, yet no other means can so easily reach many of these inaccessible places.

SATURDAY EVENING. to hear about yours—even if it wasn't so respectable." With a sweep of his hand Jim flung back the covers and handed me my corduroy robe. "Put this on—and your slippers. Then come into the other room. We'll have this thing out here and now. And you'd better not pass any more of your sarcastic remarks about my 'condition.' I'm as sober as you are—and a darn sight sane. Now come along." "Rather than have an undignified brawl over this detail, I donned my robe and slippers and followed Jim into the livingroom. He was sit ting on the couch when I got there, lighting a cigaret with shaking fingers. "Sit down!" he muttered, without looking up. "I prefer to stand. Now will you kindly tell me why you brought me out here?" I demanded. Jim took a long puff of his cigaret, flung the smoldering match into the grate and then renewed his attack in a voice that he was evidently rid ing hard on the curb. "When I phoned just before seven and told you I couldn't get home you sniffled something about being alone. Alone! What did you mean by lying to me?" "I wasn't lying. Mr. Norreys didn't phone until fifteen minutes after" "Fifteen minutes after! Did he say where he was phoning from? How did he know you were alone?" began Jim with new excitement. Still more icily, I replied: "Don't worry, he didn't —give you away. He said you were working— had to finish up some stuff before— one of the office force went to Can ada " Jim's voice changed now —sneered again, as he adjusted himself among the pillows and crossed his long legs with an air of relaxation and relief. "Oh—and as soon as he knew I was out of the way—he phoned you! That's your fine, chivalrous Norreys. Well, thank fortune, the Harrison family isn't going to be mixed up with iiim long. You won't see much more of the gentleman who finds such good hunting among the wives of his employes " "Jim—you shan't!" I cried, warm ing to rage now. "If you hadn't in terrupted in the first place, I would have told you that we were not alone—at Mr. Norrey's suggestion I took my—l asked Betty." "Betty? A likely story! Don't I know she isn't in town? Y'ou're not a very good liar, Anne." "Not as good as you—with your part-business, part-social engage ments!" I flamed. "But it just hap pens that Betty is back —got in to night. And you needn't think I don't understand this pretense of jealousy—of righteous indignation. I recognize perfectly well that it's to keep me from asking uncomfort able questions about —you and— Miss West. You needn't worry. I won't. I'm not interested—suffi ciently. I'm remembering your sug gestion that you go your way and I mine, you see. And now I'm going to bed." Jim made no move to stop me. He sat shrunken back among the pil lows of the couch as I crept back to bed, pulled the covers over my head and tried to stifle my sobs in my pillows. Long moments passed. No sign from Jim. At last I must have fallen asleep. To Be Continued. Instruction in Modern S. S. Methods Is Being Given by State Officials Sunday school executives of the!

Peace will be in charge HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH With Choir and Organist One of the most striking of the Shelley's anthems is his "Saviour, When Night Involves the Skies." This number begins with a most effective solo for baritone, followed, by trio, quartet and chorus parts. A sudden change of key is unusually dramatic toward the close of the first stanza of the anthem and again at the end ing of the composition, a rare com bination that loses none of its fervor in its musical investiture. The an them is to be sung at Pine Street Presbyterian Church to-morrow evening, when Elmer Hobbs Ley, baritone, will sing the solo. Another Shelley number that has found much favor with Harrisburg choirs is "Christian, the Morn Breaks Sweetly O'er Thee." The splendid choir of Salem Reformed Church will sing this anthem at the morn ing service. In the evening the Liebe- Schilling arrangement of "Nearer My God to Thee," which is one of the best-liked numbers sung by this choir, will be rendered. Charles Cas sel. basso, sang in this particular se lection many times while a member of Salem choir and it is, therefore, well remembered. There is a most melodious bass solo (written orig inally for contralto voice) in the composition. Men and women who had occasion to pass St. Patrick's Cathedral, in State street, last Sunday afternoon, paused to hear the player at the keys of the big Austin organ.

FLURIE signed, he was a fireman on an engine that was haul ing a train loaded with wounded soldiers back from the front lines. In part he says: "Railroading over here was quite different from railroading at home. Old Jerry woi/ld shell our road all the (time and would blow our track almost as fast as our section men could fix it, but that never stopped us. We went on with our work just the same, for we knew our boys in the lines needed food and ammun tion. We kept them well supplied at all times, but we found some dif ficulties for our boys were advanc ing so fast." Mackay Urges Congress to Return Wire Systems By Associated Press Philadelphia, Feb. I.—Clarence H. Mackay, president of the Postal Telegraph Cable Company, gave out last night a copy ol' a letter which he has addressed to all the members of Congress, in which he urges that there has been no reason advanced for the government retaining con trol of the telegraph and cable lines, j and urging Congress to vote their ! immediate return to the companies.

A discussion on the subject of advertising which de veloped at last night's meeting showed conclusively that the club will be an active agency in the city as well as a source of benefit to the members. "Is Negative Good?" furnished the subject for a lively debate among the members at the meeting. Examples of the use of the positive and negative points of view in pre senting arguments in advertising copy were offered. It was finally and naturally decided, although some members held to the contrary • view, that there is no hard and fast rule by which the one or other view could be used to the better :\dvan- ! tage, but that circumstances should determine their use. Honor Memory of Late Chas. A. Kunkel Memorial resolutions of respect for j the late Charles A. Kunkel were j adopted at a recent meeting' of the board of directors of the Harrisburg i Uvncvolent Association. Mr. Kunkel! formerly was a director of the or- j ganixation. Why Stay Fat?
