"But If she married htm without tell ing him?" Helen laughed a little nervous, sort of laugh, then said aa lightly aa ahe wak able: "1 am getting material, you aee copy." "I realise that and we must be care ful not to make your story too In tensely serious." "Never mind that-" Anawor my queatlon. I may not uae all we aay. But I am curious aa to your views." "It would fe harder hard for a ma nto forgive a woman who deliber ately deceived him as to her past fearing ahe would loaa him." "Might she not keep quiet lor his sake because she hated to hurt him?" "That would be mistaken kindness." ''Take the woman's side, then. Sup pose she had been through blasts of passion and wrong; that ahe felt de nied.

Ton muat remember I have no Idea what your heroine did thar was so dreadful that her love could not forget, even though he forgave. But your story promises to be Interest ing, to say tha least." ha added, just aa Adele tapped on the door and asked "Am I Intruding?" "No, Indeed, Allele, come right In," Helen answered, glad of the Interrup tion. "I am just going, Adele. Helen and I have been discussing her new story. I hear you went to tha party last night. Did you have a good time?" "Perfectly wonderful. I never en joyed myself more, although things got pretty lively before morning. But It was such tun!" 1 Helen's spirits sank still lower when she heard the Inns In which Adele de scribed her good time of the night he fore. The girl had been happy. Was It because of Blackton?

She la hurt and mortified at the attitude he puts her In, and sne wonders If ha really la sorry that ha married her, and would like to be rid of 1ier. why he doesn't come out and tell her privately. Instead of proclaim ing It publicly. The poor little wlfa doesn't know, as ahe will know whan she has cut her matrimonial wisdom teeth, that her husband doesn't mean a thing by his flings at marriage, and his aspersion of her character. Ha Is merely trying to he witty, and Is making his little Joke. after the time-honored formula of husbands. The oldest wheese In the world Is the mother-in-law joke. The second oldest Is the man-who-la-sorry-he-mar-rled Joke. Both or them date baca about 4,000 years B. '.. but they are still In good working order, ana every man who gets married takes them off the ehelfs dusts them oft, and starts them going again. Why a man should want to make the woman he lovea a figure of fun, and hold her up to rldioul before a lot at guffawing fools, nobody knows. There Is no other torture so exquisite as be lug laughed at. and yet many a bus band ruthlessly subjects his shrinking ana seusnive ire to una cruel ordeal for the sake of being funny. All of us know., man whose bast stories center around some peculiarity in tneir wives. All of US have sat at dinner tables, and listened to some coarse-nnerea, tiiplw hlnned husband with a hide like a rhinoceros ral.t some alleged episode about his wile which showed her ud In an Idiotic light, while his poor victim looked at him with the eyes of a hurt rabbit, and triad to smile to hide tha trani- uiuig oi ner iips, ago we have, wished that we could get us and take the carving knife to him, Instead of hav ing to politely applaud the torture seene. Men accuse women of havlnv no sense of humor. Perhaps the reason of It Is that women are so often called upon to furnish the point of mens Jokes, There are not many of ua who have such an abnormally developed funnybone that we are tickled to death wnen ins merry na-na Is on ourselves. Of course woman are funny; So are men. The sardonic Jest of creation la human nature. There la not one of us whore eccentricities would not make a screaming cartoon, eapecially with a little touching up here and there That Is why any one who is cruel enough to pick out ths mental or phys ical defects of other people and hold them up to ridicule can always get the reputation of being amusing and raise a laugh. But It Is the cheapest form of wit and -the most cowardly. Perhaps If men realized how deeply they stabbed Into their wives' hearts with their domestic Jokes they would forbear to use the deadly weapon, even If It did make a Roman holiday for their friends. Apparently It docs not occur to tha average husband that It does not amuse his wife to hear hire ssy that she Is a burden and a killjoy to him, and that he regards himself as nothing less than g red Isntern to warn other men against matrimony. Nor does a man seem to think that his wife will do anything but chortle with mirth over the side-splitting ac count he gives of her trade with the ragman, or her run.
