"When a Girl Marries"
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problems of a Girl Wife
Thoebe stood clutching the jade
earrings and necklace Dick West had
bought her the night before. Her
little heart-shaped face flashed cut
at me in vivid defiance. and between
us vibrated the words she Had just

I realized the truth of what she
had just said. I couldn't change this
flaming. pleasure-loving coquette i
back to the little Thoebe of a few j
months ago—the girl of soft lips and :
gentle eyes. I had failed.
Jim didn't see the importance of ,
the enchantment I wanted to work, i
nor yet of the evil spell I wanted j
to undo. And Virginia didn't even
dare to try. But there was one oth- |

Phoebe had loved Xeal once—loved j
him devotedly. There was no doubt ]
of that. Child love, perhaps, but sin- •

for life. Friendship and excitement
and love were the things she ha J !
She had asked for my friendship.
I could see that now. And I had j
been so shocked by Virginia's cold- J
ness to me that I hadn't realized j
how I was passing it right on to.
So Phoebe had failed In her fl.st'
search—the search of friendship
Then before she could be
searching anew for the second th •

sitting on the big couch with one foot
tucked under her and peering up to
smile a shy "Hello"' As If It had
been only yesterday. I could hear
Xeal's reply:
"1 thought you were Just a kid."
And Phoebe's:
"I'm a grown woman—seventeen;"
How they had laughed together
' then and how happily they had sat
side by side, finding each other and
forgetting In the joy of that the
; hurt of the thorough snubbing Vir
ginia had given Xeal for his pre- !
sumption In calling her "Virginia," |
and for his awkwardness In stum-
I bling on Pat Dalton's name,
j It began that very night, I suppose,
i They didn't know it. but even those ;
I two young things were reaching out j
| to each other with shy, half-guessed ;
I Xeal had brought her the greatest
\ gift of all, and Phoebe had forgotten .
j the lesser gifts. But seeing her now
—avid for excitement and luxury j
| and attention—l knew that Phoebe j
I had traveled a lung road since the
I autumn day when she bade the sol- ,
; diet- Xeal a tearful goodby and j
pressed her lips to his diamond circ- j
! let as it nestled on her hand.
[ Yes. there was one thing for me to j
' do—send for Xeal.
I would write to Father Andrew. 1
| ask him to work hard to help Xeal j
' get his discharge, and to persuade i
j the boy to come back to us as soon \
as he was out of the army.
In that moment the kinship of the (
I Harrisons, in spirit as well as blood. ;
1 was very clear to me. They had !
pride in common and stubbornness, j
| Perhaps his sister also shared Jim's i
! need of dominating the one he loveil. j
i I didn't know. But of this I was j
| certain—Virginia had wrecked ner- \
I self on the reefs of her own pride :
' and stubbornness; Jim and I were j
' drifting into dangerous waters be- |
•ausc of these same things. And ;
| my Phoebe. My own pride, my own j
pride. my own need of freedom,
might work enough damage so that J
dim and 1 would be shipwrecked too

What the present demanded \ as •
I that 1 save Phoebe.
I We had taken the circlet of dia- !
monds from her hand and had sent J
,it back to Xeal. We had taken love '
from h-r. And Phoebe had turned;
to the least of her gifts and exalted
it to first place. Excitement uas
: her patron saint now. and t would I
; wreck poor little Phoebe unless j
■ some one saved her from herself. '
' Of course I didn't formulate my ]

| while I stood staring at Phoebe. I j
had been thinking and brooding all j
through the long morning while 1 ;

I came to me then ways the decision I
to send for Xeal. To Phoebe X said: I

: "Did you see Shelly's face when he

; "Phoebe!" I cried in real repug
nance, "you're playing those men off j
against each other to see which will j
do more for you. which will send more i
wonderful presents."
I'hoebe took a sudden impulsive !
step toward me. There was a wistful I
look on her face and it seemed to me |
; that she was going to be gentle and j
repentant. But what she said at last
, "You think that! This jade"— i

1 can't do such things. You shan't ac- j
cept such gifts from men!"
"So"" asked Phoebe suavely, j
I "Who's to stop me?"

The w'.fe. the husband and the '
vampire lady!
There is a triangle as old as time.
It is constantly being presented to
me. I have at present five or six
letters on my desk from indignant |
or heartbroken wives, and one from
a vampire lady who signs herself ;
"Miserable Mabel." The husbands i
are discreetly silent.
The wife—l will put it in the :
singular, for all the letters are prac
tically the same in substance —writes
me that she i s very unhappy and that
her health has become affected
through worrying over her husband s
infatuation for another woman. She
says that this has been the subject
of many quarrels between them, and
that she has begged him on her knees
to give up the siren who is disturb
ing the peace of tiicir home.
She has two or three little chil
dren. and fears that their futures
are imperiled as well as her own by ,
the course the man is pursuing. She ,
wants to keep her home; she wants
to keep her husband's affection, and
above all she wishes her children to
have the best possible chance in life.
Jf there ever was a situation re
quiring common sense and sanity of
judgment, it is this one. Eliminate
sentiment and natural resentment and
look at the matter quite coldly, and 1
what do we see?
First, that the wife holds all the
trump cards. In a duel between her
and the siren the siren is quite at '
a disadvantage. By virtue of legality,
custom and public opinion, the wife's
position is impregnable.
Xo matter how desperate the hus
band's infatuation —and the more
desperate the more fleeting—he is
rarely entirely blind to the very prac
tical issues involved. He will not
lightly contemplate the possible
breaking up of his home and separa- |
tion from his children. Neither is j
he anxious to endure the criticism j
and censure of his friends and ac- i
quaintances. He is also aware that I
the law holds him responsible for I

the maintenance of his family and the
education of his children.
Ho will think twice before con
sidering tile establishment of a new
home with the vampire lady installed
therein. It would be an expensive
experiment at least, even if love were
eternal, and love so rarely is.
When we want anything very much,
what do we do? Everything in em
power to get it. But in cases like
these, where the affections and emo
tions are involved, it is very hard
to follow a well-defined and calcu
lated course. Yet. if it could be
dene, how different the results might
be. how many domestic catastrophes
might be averted.
If instead of quarreling with
Friend Husband on the subject, the
nife had laughed at it and refused
to discuss ii seriously, she might
have made the whole affair seem a
cheap and silly escapade. Bhe should
never have begged him on her knees
to give the other woman up. It made
the vamp lady seem too terribly im
portant. It also strengthened in him
the interesting conviction that he
was the victim of a grande l'assion.
Suppose, instead of taking it so
seriously, she had determined to re
gard it as one of those temporary
aberrations to which we are all sub
ject. it might have quickly blown
We all make fools of ourselves
now and again and we invariably
excuse and justify our own idiocy.
Then why not be lenient, for a change
toward the other fellow's lapses into
Of course. It is humiliating for a
wife to have her friends comment
upon her husband's "goings on;" but
why should she gratify their long
ings for a sensation and give them
something to gossip about?
Suppose she would say smilingly:
"Oh. yes; it is amusing. T'm glad,
however, that he is flirting with any
one so harmless. It is just his way.
Poor girl, I hope she doesn't take
him too seriously." Think how dis
appointed the sympathizing friends
would be.
| The philandering husband in nine
eases out of ten does not really waver
!in his allegiance to his family. He
merely wants a little excitement, a
bit of a fling. He wants to dramatize
himself to the vampire lady, and tell
her how misunderstood he is and how
easily he can express to her those
deep, inmost, sacred thoughts and
emotions he has never been able to
voice to any one else.
And then, when he is met with
tears, reproaches and rows at home,
he becomes mulish.
If the wife could only bring her
self to look at him in the same
large maternal, indulgent way that
she would regard a little boy who
is having a naughty spell and whom
scolding and punishment only make
naughtier, much trouble would be
• As for the vampire lady, she can
be safely left to Time's revenges.
1 hey are lying in wait for her. She ll
get them.

Cairo Mobs, With Knives and
Hatchets, Attack Ar
By Associated I'ross.
Cairo, Egypt, April 14. In two
days of rioting here, ended at noon
ion Saturday, thirty-eight persons
were killed and one hundred wound
| cd, it is announced in yesterday's
official communique. Armenians
were chiefly the objects of the mob's
attacks, and seven of those killed
were of that nationality. In rioting
in Alexandria three persons were
killed and six seriously injured Sat
• urday mqrning, while a continuation
of attacks on the troops resulted in
the killing of seventeen other per
sons during the afternoon. The text
i of the statement reads:
"There was further rioting in
| Cairo yesterday. The mob, armed
with knives and hatchets, made at
tacks largely directed at Armenians.
| The police report thirty-eight killed
| and one hundred wounded during
the forty-eight hours ended at noon
I yesterday. The killed include seven
j Armenians and four Greeks. Mili
: tary measures were enforced and the
night passed off quietly.
| "Disturbances occurred in Alex
-1 andria yesterday. There was a col-
I lision in the morning between troops
' and rioters in the Karmus quarter in
j which three were killed and six
wounded seriously. In an Armenian
disturbance in the afternoon the mob
persistently attacked the troops who
were obliged to fire, killing seven
'< teen, including a number of the ring
; leaders, and wounding a number of
j others. The public are warned to be
I in their houses by 8 o'clock in the
i evening.
"Five British soldiers, including
I two unarmed Indians, were mur
j-dered on Wednesday. The troops
| were greatly affected but showed
j admirable patience. On Wednesday
1 night the Kasr El Ain Hospital
i (Cairo) reported receiving 22 kill
ed and 47 wounded civilians. A
| large proportion of these casualties
I was due to mob outrages. Disorder
! ly crowds composed of the worst elc
j nients began operations in the quar-
I ters from which the military patrols
| had been withdrawn at the request
*of the civil authorities. They niur
| dered and carried out looting opera
l tions upon small shops until the
; troops checked the excesses. The
j rioters systematically canvassed the
! houses for Armenians, as was done
j in the massacres at Constantinople,
| and held up pedestrians, forcing
I them to prove their identity. The
j terror-stricken Armenians took
j refuge in the Cairo suburb of llelio
i polis, which is almost entirely Euro
-1 pean, whereupon the local police
! men and watchmen abandoned their
i posts, apparently shirking rcspon
j sibility.

Advice to the Lovelorn
Dear Miss Fairfax: Two years ago
a friend told me about a cousin. '
About a week ago he Introduced us. •
1 at once took a liking to her, and ia i
the evening asked her would she care
to go to a dance with me. She told 1
me that she would go, but first I i
would have to go to her house. 1
went last Saturday, and after meet- |
ing her parents we went to the dance. ]
I studied the girl, and upon watching :
her actions, she mauc me like her all
the more. After the dance 1 told her
that I would like to have her come j
to my house this Sunday which she 1
agreed to do.
The point 1 am trying to drive at
is, do you think I should tell this
girl about my love for her, knowing
her only so short a time?
Yours seems to be a highly ro
mantic predicament. If you did fall
In love at first sight, and can con
vince the gill o'l this, perhaps that
fact alone will melt her to the point
of returning your love. But not
many courtships are conducted with
such an impetuous dash, and in gen
eral it is better strategy to wait
somewhat longer before declaring
one's love.
