- " When a Girl Marries"
By ANN LISLE A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing Problem of a Girl Wife (Copyright, 1919, Star Feature Syndicate, Inc.) CHAPTER COCXIV. We decided to make a picnic out of the Sunday trip to the country place Tom was thinking of buying. "I'll furnish the car," said Tom when he phoned me about it on Saturday, "and have my hbuse keeper pack a hamper of lunch. All you have to do. Donna Anna, is gather together the congenial crowd. Young Neal and Phoebe, I'd sug gest, and Pat—if he'll come." "You don't seem to have left me much to do even in the line of fur nishing the crowd," I replied. "Come now—there's a catch in it j somewhere. What is it? What's my share in the division of labor?" "Oh, the car holds seven. So you might furnish a girl. A lonely bachelor maid to cheer the lonely bachelor," said Tom. "All right," I agreed gayly, for getting that my list of bachelor girls consisted briefly of Carlotta and Daisy. Then 1 added, "Where are you phoning from?" On Tom's replying unsuspiciously I that he was at the downtown studio, ' I promptly called the uptown studio i where Daisy was in charge and in vited her. Her reply astonished 1 me: I "Anne, you are wonderful to ask | me—to treat me as if nothing had happened. But I can't come. 11 can't face your husband yet." I didn't protest, for her tone con- j veyed clearly how remorse and l shame were overwhelming Daisy. So she probably didn't want to see me either. I determined to keep on inviting her out as if nothing had occurred and so Anally wear down the acute edges of her misery. When- I asked Carlotta, it turned out that both she and Pat were booked for a house party some Sturges cousins were giving. So there seemed' no one else to ask in | ASPIRIN FOR COLDS Name "Bayer" is on Genuine Aspirin—say Bayer Insist on "Bayer Tablets of As-j pint?" in a "Bayer package," con- j taining proper directions for folds, j Pain.

On Sunday morning, as I was putting the lust touches to my picnic costume, Hedwig fame to the door of my room and announced callers, "Miss Warren and Mr. Haldane." "What a nice piece of old-fash- courtesy," commented Jim. "What do you mean?" I asked in a flutter about taking off my hat again. "Calling the Sunday before the dinner to which you've invited them," he replied. "Take your bon net off, Anne. }t don't hurt Tommie and the kids to wait, and Mr. Hal dane is the most important person you've ever had visit you. Hope Tom's a bit late." "Sing-ho for the Harrison pride!" I laughed, vastly pleased neverthe less at the good impression this re newal of auld acquaintance was producing on Jim. Then we went out to greet our callers. Mr. Haldane is a real gen tleman of the old school, in frock coat, gray striped trousers, gray spats, and he wore a white carna tion in his buttonhole as casually as he wore his air of old-fashioned courtesy. Iron gray and keen of hair and eyes, he had more than ever the air of gentleness and im pending break I had felt toward the end of my employment in his office. He stopped over my hand gravely from his slender height, and then presented his companion with his well-remembered air of making a rite of each least thing that came along for him to do. "Mrs. Harrison, let me present my niece, Irma Warren. You have met before, I think. Miss Warren, Lieutenant Harrison. Dear me, dear me! I'm fancying myself back on the war basis, where we met and I made your happy match for vou, Mr. Harrison." Jim and our masculine guest shook hands on that and asked per mission to light cigars, so I was left free to_ renew acquaintance witli Irma Warren. 1 saw a plump girl of about five feet three, with twink ling blue eyes which might appear large if her face weren't too roly poly and apple-cheeked. Fine, wavy bronze gold hair and a nose that is clear cut and beautifully chiseled redeem her from the look of blowziness and commoness her wide mouth, high color and over developed figure might otherwise give her. Her hands are a bit com mon, too. Boyish and capable I found when she gripped my linger." in a hearty squeeze. But they are counter-balanced, as I discovered later by slim, high-arched feet. And her wide mouth parted in a gener ous smile which shows the loveliest of white teeth. She wore a plain little blue voile dress and a flat black hat trimmed with a ribbon bow. I got a sensa tion of being back home again, and seeing one of my high-school com panions in her first long dress. The city hadn't set its mark on Irma Warren. Even to a casual glance she is "small-town stuff." I won dered what the Harrisons "would make of her. "I'm so pleased to meet you again," she was saying, even as 1 sraed her up in a pleased and tho roughly comfortable glance. ',' l don't know many people in the city except the editors Uncle brings home. And I've nothing to say thai they'd want to hear—so I lister mostly. You'll understand if I tnllf too much now. won't you?" she con cluded, grinning as she poked s little fun at herself. And just then Tom Mason walker in. I'd heard the bell vaguely or the edges of consciousness while she was talking, and had felt sorry that our visit must be cut short and still sorrier over the embarrass ment and the disappointment I was sure my visitors would feel. Now I fumbled for words as Jim worn forward to greet and present Tom But before anyone could speak, Ton burst out heartily: "Good for you, Donna Anna Here we are—all ready to start. ] knew when I commissioned you t< bring along a girl to cheer the ole bachelor, I could count on you. Anc Mr. Haldane too! You see, sir, 1 don't need to he told who you a*-e But I hope Jim Harrison has fount a good word to say for me." He bowed gravely to our dis tinguished guest. Yet I felt tha every word be said was for Trim Warren's benefit. (To Be Continued.) Bringing Up Father - Copyright, 1918.

It, like its pre- , ' decessor, was addressed to "David t i Smith." This message was from | Miss Jeane DeLaine's lawyer in Bal- I timore and requested the recipient [ to "Come without delay, as import -1 ant matter must be settled."

Undoubtedly much was at j stake—more, perhaps, than the young man had let himself hope after reading the lawyer's former communication. He must obey the summons. | Now, at last, his duty was Clear. He sternly reminded himself of j this as he reviewed for the hun- ■ ; dredtli time the scene between him ! self and Desiree Leighton last night, j For he thought he understood everything now—all the illusions I that had been made about the pen- j j dant, as well as Desiree's confused I manner. i The pendant had disappeared. (The girl's father had suspected his' | chauffeur of taking it from its box ion the way to the jeweler's. He had ! | probably mentioned his suspicions ' to other people—else how would t Miss Goddard know of them? For ! (surely she had this in'wind when ( she made veiled remarks regarding I the missing jewel. | There had been only one person j | who trusted him. That was Desiree ' j herself. She had told him this — t j had told him she Mhd sent him that ( | enigmatic telegram to urge him to - stay so that his innocence might be j proved. He wondered how it could I have been proved. Probably, he j j mused, Samuel Leighton had wished jto watch him while investigating the case. David's jaw set sternly. This man had dared think that he— Then he remembered that Sam uel Leighton was the father of , the girl he loved —the girl who had , sacritieed her ideas of conventions, . had set aside the traditions of her I class to send a message to him be ' cause she knew—in the face of all , evidence against him—that he was , honest. She trusted him. The lines about his mouth soft ened. She had done all that for him. ' Fqr one unthinking moment he had wondered if she had done it because she liked him. Then he had stifled the suggestion. She, ' Desiree Leighton, was nt the sort , of a girl who would have any per sonal feeling for her father's chauf feur. She was kind—that was all. Yet there had been a look in her eyes in that dim light last night Again he set his jaws grimly and, takj>§ up the telegram, re-read it. He must see his employer at once and tell him that he was about to leave his position, must ask him to ', release him from his promise to stay with him for a few days longer. David disliked to do this. Yet ! Anderson's telegram had convinced | him that his future might depend u upon prompt action. Moreover, he I knew that he dared not see Desiree I Leighton again—much as his heart ! cried out for her. But he had no real softening of [ the heart toward Desiree's father, i Even while he tried to remind him i self that his employer knew noth- I ing of his character, the young man 'could not smother his resentment i at the older man's suspicions of him. , | Still, for the daughter's sake, he must be courteous and considerate. It was early afternoon. He had received no orders this morning. Now he went around to the garage j for the second time to-day. Here he was informed that his j employer had telephoned that Smith • was to call him up at the earliest opportunity, j JDbeying instructions, David was told by a clerk that Mr. Leighton | wished Smith to come downtown this afternoon —by 3 o'clock if pos ! sible. I "He does not want the car," the clerk explained. "You can come in the subway." "I will be down in a half hour," Smith said curtly.

But at the door of the garage a young man, just entering, detained him. Looking for a Position "Excuse me," he said, "but I am wondering if you know of anyone needing a chauffeur?" Smith scrutinized the speaker keenly. He was young and looked strong and honest. "Why, yes," he smiled, "perhaps I do.

"Thank you," the other man said, j "I can furnish good references, too. j I'd be glad to be spared the ex pense of registering at an agency, if I could." David wrote down the applicant's address and hurried on to the sub way. He was glad of this encoun ter, for, now that he was so soon to tell Mr. Leighton that he could qot keep his engagement, he felt vaguely guilty. It seemed almost providential that he should have met a man wanting a place just at this j juncture. "At all events, the old man can not say that I have nobody else in view for him," he thought. "Al though he has been mighty unfair in his suspicions of me, yet I do not care to inconvenience him. But —I wish he had kept his face shut about those same suspicions."

I City and State I I I Life's Problems Are Discussed i The question of a girl proposing to a young man has often been discussed. Many, many articles headed, "Should \\ omen Propose?" have appeared, and j the case has been argued pro and con. I do not suppose that there was over a group of young people gathered that | the subject was not at one time or I another threshed out. Mow a girl puts it up to me in a j letter. She met a young man and a romantic attachment sptrang upl be- | tween them, but they never actually | became engaged. His family as well | as hers rather frowned on their friend | ship, because t l their youth, and also on account of his unsettled financial state. He went to another city to take a position, and she heard from him I regularly, his letters being full of ex ! pressions of affection. Then they j ceased abruptly. No letter came for ' weeks. Mater she heqrd liorn him again, i and he told her that he had been ill j and had lost his position. He was | going to another town, however, where I he thought there was the chance of aj good opening. Since that time several months have pgssed, and she has not j heard a word. She writes me that she is very tin-1 happy over the whole situation. She fancies that '.he young man may be out iol health, or may have failed to se cure a new position, and in either I case may be too discouraged over his prospects to write. Her imagination is working over time, and she finds the suspense of his long silence almost too hard to bear. His family never speaks of him to her. and she does not like to brin up the subject. Hut unless she does ask them i for it, she has no way of learning his address ; so she is now about ready to . pocket her pride and request it from I them. Then it is her purpose to write J him and tell him that she is ready to j marry him at any time. But I pray her to consider the mat- ! ter a little further.

Now, a young man In this girl's po- | I sition would say to himself "I am go- i j ing to find out the truth." He would | ■ get the girl's address from her fam- I ily, if possible, and would write and ! ask the reasons for her apparent cool ness. Why may a young woman not do the same? Why does she have to sit j with folded hands and see her happi- j ness slip by her? There are several reasons. One is that when a man asks a woman to marry him he is virtually saying in the words of the marriage service: j "With all my wordly goods I thee en ' dow." He is offering to provide shel j ter and food and clothing for her, the I necessities of life and as many of the | comforts as he can afford. I This fact places a woman at an ex- j j treme disadvantage when it comes to | ! proposing, unless she is well off and i | her money is so invested that it ap ' pears to be sufficient to supply her needs throughout her life. And even then she is at a disadvantage. She has overstepped a very firmly held convention. It may be an un fair convention, or an unjust or even an absurd one; but nevertheless it ex ists and is very deeply rooted. Sup pose the marriage does not turn out happily? The woman who has pro j posed it is again at a serious dis | advantage. ' Jn their disagreements the man is j apt to feel and perhaps to say: "It |is all your fault. I would never have j [ dreamed of marrying you if you had | I not asked me, and then I was too j j chivalrous to turn you down." A hor | rid thing to say, but then people do j j say nasty things to each other in j I heated moments. And she, poor thing, i j is left without an answer, and no wo- j I man on earth likes that. There is another point to be con- I sidered by the girl who writes me. ( If this man really loves her he is ( treating her very carelessly, to say j the least, and It is far better for her 1 |* „■ Remember that ravenous appetite of your younger days—and ■on how good those big, thick slices of that wonderful bread and - |*l butter tasted? |L 1 | HOItSUM BREAD g ■I M Takes You Back to Younger Days " M p" Those were the happy days!
