My HEART and My HUSBAND Adele Garrison's New ' ' Phase of Revelations of a Wife ' WHAT MADGE SAW IN ' ' 7 MR. STOCK BR I DOE'S OFFICE For a moment Alice Holcombe and I faced each other tensely, 'she insis tent on the course, she had outlined, I equally determined against It . 1 was willing to go to many lengths for Alice Holcombe, but this proposi tion 'to spy upon my principal's wife - through a transom' was something I could not do. I was big enough, how ever, to see the Justice of her stand point. It was her duty, her privilege, to protect the man she loved from the crazed maneuvers of his wife. But while I was perfectly willing -to help her even to a point Involving personal danger, 1 felt that I must refuse this thing she hid asked, nay, commanded 'me to do. i "Please don't- be angry," I asked, 'but I cannot watch Mrs. Btockbrldge when she doesn't know I am, near hen 1 will, however go down to the -om.ee at once and stay there until some one 'comes to relieve me." ' , "Oh, will you?' Alice Holcomhe's face registered relief and astonish ment. ' "I "didn't' think I ought to ask you that for fear of the unpleasantness Millie might cause you. if he, becapie angered at your coming down. She's rot strong enough to hurt you, but she might say some very horrid, things. Oh, dear!" her face, fell. - "I had for gotten that the teachers and children will be coming In. We mustn't risk ft scene." , "We ' probably are risking a- scene anyway,'' I said practically. "But you must decide quickly. I will go down to the office on some plausible pretext, or 1 will stay here." -. "Oh, go down by all means and at once," she said, and I saw that she wus having difficulty in controlling her emotions. Why Msdoe Hesitated." I wt not particularly calm myself, but fortunately my "single track mind," as Dicky terms it, enables me generally to put aside from my thoughts everything save the partic ular task which )s engrossing me.. So without any more words I turned and went swiftly down the staircase to the door of the principal's office, . which was closed, contrary to the usual cus tom of the-school. - - '.."' f debated for a moment whether or not 1 should knock on that closed door. Then my common sense asserted Itself, and told me that Mrs. Stockbrldge was the real intruder, and that either Miss Holcombe or I, as the principal's assit ants, had the right to enter the office in his absence at will. But my fingers were trembling .as I turned the knob and swung back the door. ; Milly Btockbrldge did not see or hear " vine, and my trained eyes had time to observe the setting In which her ab sorbed figure was framed. ' She was sitting at her husbands nrh.ii riir and tha drawers which he had - always , kept . locked were wide, cpen. A key,, one of a hunch on a key ring, was Inserted in. the lock, of the top one, while the principal's office coat, lying carelessly tumbled on 'the floor, was route evidence. of the man ner in which Mrs. Stocknridge- had se cured the keys.' Her husband, upon receiving the summons to the neigh boring village, nuist have forgotten to change the keys with his coat little thinking that his wife would dlBO-bey the mandate which had kept her from that office for so long. In her hands she held a large en velope on which ws printed a caption In large letters. "Not to be op nth " Milly. Btockbrldge s hands screened the other letters, hut I com pleted the sentence In my mind. Not to be opened until my death,"-Knew that her vandal fingers were tearing out from the insensate paper the heart secrets of the man whose life she had made one living hell.

"Pardon me, Mrs. Btockbrldge," I said, Wondering . what in the world 1 would say next to her. I did not have to ponder the question long, for with a sound like a snarl she wheeled In the chair, then sprang to her feet, . her hands crushing together the envelope and Its contents, among which I no ticed some kodak pictures, the backs of which, however, were turned toward me. . n v - - - 'Oh, it's you, is It,' you spy!" she screamed. "I thought you'd be along. Well, now that you're here I'll give you something to think-over and report." : She sat down at the desk again, snatched a pen, dipped it in Ink, and began to write feverishly acrj&s the envelope I had seen. . .

"I , wonder if the time isn't goins to come when we're going to divide women Into classes, as they did In the old civilizations. '. ! - "The mother women, the pleasure seeking women and the workers. . ,j "It would simplify life a lot If we did." - And, come to think of it, it really ! would, wouldn't it? j It would be a fine arrangement for' everybody but the women. j Equal pay for equal work? Tes, I I believe in that who that is fair- minded doesn't? If a woman does the Mm work as a man aha ought to get the same money for it, oughtn't she? She can't rent a room any cheaper than a mart; she can't buy food any cheaper, and her clothes cost a whole lot more. - $he Just Goes Without. ' Oh, yes. I know men are always telling you how clever women are. "X woman can get along on half that a man can and save money, at that." That's what they say, and when we women hear them say it we smile and look pleased at first. But when we've lived awhile among women who work for a living, we realize that the woman who lives on less than a man lives on worse things than a man and fewer of them, that's all.- She doesn't manage she Just goes without. And going without Isn't al ways the most charming thing in the world. Is it? There's John at one desk and Mary at the other aide by side they sit, and day by day they do exactly the same work. But- John gets $25 a month more than Mary. Why? Because he's a I man, that's all, . Why should that make any differ ence? John wants to marry some - day, and he has to make enough to take care of a wife? Well, that s so. But how about Mary's mother? Mary takes care of her aa a- matter of course and never thinks of acting like a martyr over it. There's Sarah and William, both of them doing the same work, and William getting more than Sarah. William is already engaged so's Sarah. But Sarah wants to send her little sister through high, school and she's saving a little for Brother Jimmy's clothes when he starts in to college. What Is the Difference? Sarah makes her own clothes and washes her own shirtwaists and trims her own hats. She doesn't do these things because she likes them.- She does them be cause she has to, and it takes a good deal of her strength and ambition. Sarah really would be worth $25 a month more as a clerk if she had a big enough salary so she didn't have to alt up till 11 o'clock every night sewing and mending and turn ing and pressing to keep herself looking trim and tidy at the office. The labor unions are out for equal wages for equal work. i They don't want women taking the , place of men because they'll work i ..1 For my part, I wish women didn't have to work for a living at all, but my wishes don't seem to have very much to do with the matter. And as long as Mary must work, pay Mary exactly what you'd pay John that's the way I feel about it. ' How about you?

B.. M. A., M. D., Johns Hopkins University.) "Broken' veins are varicose veins channels for the venous blood which have become twisted and turned. Common ly enough, va ricose veins are disregarded because they are sometimes tem porary and mend th emselv es. Often, however, they remain per manent in men and women who stand a great deal, who eat lia. mimtiUKUU more than they should or who are Indoors much of the time. Rubber stockings, etastlo bandages, pressure tapes, and stitching opera tions are often necessary to remedy varicose veins. That Is to say, until Dr. F. W. Kappelman, of Milwaukee, devised his new plan of relief. This method Is the use of hot salt water In a definite strength as an In jection. . - . The advantages of Dr. Kappelman's procedure are the ease, facility and swiftness of the whole plan. It Is not tedious, requires only a tew minutes and Is simple of .accomplishment. There Is little cutting no loss of sen sation, no interference with the nerves of lymphatics, the length of stay in bed after the injection is re duced to a few days, and the results are excellent.

Tho veins are caught up after the aneathetlo has become effective and each little twisted part snipped off for two Inches. The leg Is then ele vated. The blood, usually a small amount In the surface veins, is expelled through the opening at the knee and the veins are collapsed by means of the race horse bandage, which Is wound very tightly around the leg from the ankle to Just below the knee. The I per cent, solution of salt Is held In the flesh three feet above the cut veins. It Is then allowed to flow through the tubing Into the vein as the bandage is unwound.

This is all carried out In the manner mentioned. Varicose veins are troublesome things.
