" When a Girl Marries"
By ANN I.ISLE A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing Problem of a Girl Wife CHATTER CCCXXXI (Copyright, 1919, King Feature Syndicate, Inc.) For onr week-end Jaunt Neal se lected a pretty little lake iesort about sixty miles from the city. By now my ankle was in good condition, so I insisted on running up in my car—packing him and Phoebe in the rumble seat, while the baggage was distributed between the running board and the place next to me. Driving up the steady grade that leads into the hills and to the lake of our destination occupied me pretty much. But it didn't keep me from worrying because the morning hadn't brought the expected letter from Jim. Nor, on the other hand, did it keep me from realizing that I'd have been a prig to insist on stopping at home to watch each de livery, with the longed-for letter in view. Phoebe's happy voice floated to me from the rear. It was full of laughs and ripples and trills—the bird-like happiness of youth was in it now, instead of the tense and tor rifying woman's eagerness in which she berated the fate and the family that denied her to Neal. All through the happy day I re joiced that I'd come with the chil dren. And yet there was an ugly uneasiness In my mind which would not down. In the afternoon I called up m$ apartment to see if there was any mail.

After a dip in the lake, Phoebe and Neal had got back into walking togs and gone for a stroll through the pine woods. When they hadn't returned by seven, I added my un easiness over this to the fact that another trial over the toll wire didn't give my apartment, and, tick ing this to my general disquiet—the "hunch" I'd felt about coming—l worked myself Into a frightful state of nerves, Seven-flfteen, and still Phoebe's room was quite empty. So, flinging a cape about my evening finery, I went down to the veranda to while away the tantalizing hours of wait ing where there would be coming and going to distract my mind a bit. Hhrdly had I settled myself in a big wicker chair when up to the porte cochere drove a car, and out stepped Daisy Condon. The car it self, evidently driven by its only oc cupant and not piloted by a chauf feur, then went over to the parking place. Daisy teetered about on the steps a minute before she vanished into the inn. I sat still, making no move. It seemed that she must have seen me and preferred to pretend she hadn't. Perhaps she still wanted to avoid me- because of that ugly situation between us, namely, the theft of my ring. Perhaps this evening In par ticular Daisy wanted to avoid me. Without waiting for the other ce cupant of the car which had brought Daisy to the lake, I got up and drifted round to the side door of the inn. The clock in the quaint little living-room registered seven,- thirty. Dusk had given way to darkness, and my uneasiness over Phoebe and Neal had given way to actual worry. I made a trip up to my room, but still Phoebe's—which opened into It—was empty. And Neal's—down the hall and around the corner—■ still failed to respond to my knock ing. "Now, be sensible, Anne," I told myself. "They may have gone off the path and lost their way. But to think that any harm has come to them is silly; and to imagine for one Instant that they'd drag you out here and then elope is melodra matic.

Of course, I didn't want to do this If it could be avoided. It would mean publicity and a fuss, which the whole Harrison tribe would go miles out of its way to avoid. Time dragged on, toward eight and as I sat in the lobby, where I could watch both front and side entrances, I had a great struggle not to go all to pieces. Phoebe and Neal had left me before five and had promised to be back in time to dress for seven o'clock dinner. What could have happened? Suddenly an inspiration came to me. Probably Daisy was with Carl Booth, who was due back in town Just about now. Nice old "big brother" Carl would know Just what to do. I'd go to the dining-room door, and if he were there, I'd have the waiter take me to him. Suiting action to thought, I hur ried across the lobby and to the very door of the dining-room. Just as I got there something made me turn, and there in the lobby stood Neal, looking sadly scratched and bedraggled. But he was alone. No Phoebe. I turned and ran to him, but not before I had glimpsed Daisy and a masculine figure I identified with a feeling of distaste and dis trust. It was Tom Mason—not Carl Booth; and that put an altogether different complexion on what I had Just been regarding as merely a Jolly little dinner party. When I reached Neal he seized my wrist and pulled me out into the shadows of the verandah. There cowered Phoebe—a sad sight, in deed, with her pretty white clothes all caked in mud. "Oh, darling! Are you hurt?" I cried, darting forward to gather her in my arms. She giggled reassuringly. And Neal, motioning me away from her dishevelled figure, explained: "I'm a dub woodsman. Lost the path. My poor darling tumbled in to a stream I didn't notice in time. Wrap her in your warm cloak, please, Babbs, so no one sees her like this, and mind that she has a warm bath and doesn't take cold. I want you to tuck her right into bed—and I'll send up dinner." "Not much!" exclaimed Phoebe, with surprising vigor. "A warm bath and clean clothes'U set me right in no time. And the same for my boy. Will you starve, Anne, ijf you have to wait on your truants another half hour?" "Not I," I replied with great re lief, as I followed Phoebe into the inn and up to her room. Once there HXimiSßtrßG TEEEGK3M I insisted on giving her a strenuous . rub-down and on dosing her up a. bit against her taking cold.

For all that I helped them, and | they both hurried as fast as ever they could, it was nine before we got down to the dining-room. It was still crowded with motor parties, but when the captain piloted us by the table where Tom and Daisy had sat an hour before, it was empty. I wondered if they had seen me and had fled.

"Here I go plugging along and doing the best I can every minute of the day and it gets me nowhere. Then Billings stumbles across a man who has a formula for redeeming metal scraps, he backs the invention and makes a fortune. Of all the blind luck!" Does Mrs. Jones strive to dissi pate her husband's bitterness by suggesting that there's something positively thrilling about living in a world where such miracles can occur, and that if such good for tune merely happened to overtake Billings—who isn't to hope? Or does she philosophically re mark that Billings probably kept his eyes open and was around just in time to see his chance, and that if her own Freddie will only keep on plugging, probably he'll manage to see his chance too? Does she wrest from the other man's success the human sympathy that's hers for the taking? The chances are she does nothing of the sort. She's perfectly free to gather in her bit from the Billings' success, j Hope. Encouragement. Generos ity. Strength to go out. But she doesn't. Instead she adds her crumb of bitterness to what her husband feels and they extract for themselves from the success of Bil lings the following items: Jealousy, Malice, Discourage ment. Of course, I like to think about the ethics of situations, and the ideal side of things appeals to me. But in this particular phase of hu man weakness, '.ay sense of effic iency is affronted. There's so much waste and inefficiency to envy that it seems one of the chief stumbling blocks to human progress. Let's return to Billings. Probably he had foresight and shrewdness, and he must have done a bit of saving in order to have the money to get into the game when he saw his chance. Wouldn't it be possible to share his joy and the fine glow of his for tunes by just rejoicing and letting generous enthusiasm hold sway? The electrical spirit that runs through mobs is always ready to communicate itself from person to person. Why miss it? The other day it was given me to read a book. ' A masterpiece. The man who wrote it is beyond his first youth. And there is to his credit long years of a big job well done; a routine job of long hours and the sort of effort and concentration that the average man would say "took everyhing out of him." Besides the job there have been other books. And now the masterpiece. As I read the exquisite phrases lovingly turned, as I steeped myself in the atmosphere as fragrant as a lane set in balsam woods and as pungent and clean, I shared the triumph that is coming to the author. For the moment I was up lifted to the point of having as my own part of his joy of achievement. "What do you claim it gave you?" asks the Cynic. "Don't tell me that you weren't a little jealous? Don't tell me you didn't wish you'd written it?" Well, Mr. Cynic, I will tell you all of that. The only emotion I was conscious of at first was joy. It was beautiful to vision the triumph com ing. It was inspiring to feel that the glorious expression of a fine per sonality was set down in love and honesty, and was clearly to bring acclaim, appreciation and the hon ors that are due to genius. Then the meaning of it all added itself to the joy I felt just because some one else had done the big thing for which all of us strive, and so Inevitably some must strive in vain. So my heart and soul and mind joined in saying this to me: "Here's success. It has come to reward honest striving, big ideals, a longing for growth. "Here's beauty. It Is written here on these pages because the man whose work they are has loved beauty always and has set it on the pinnacle it deserves. "Here's good workmanship. It has come after years of effort. And it always does come to the man who will work hard enough. "Here's a beautiful contribution to life. And a human being has STOPS HEADACHE, PAIN, NEURALGIA Don't suffer!
