CONFESSIONS
OF A BRIDE
“If we are going to die,
we will die together
says Bob.
I told v ßob the story of my adven
ture. I made it as short as possible.
Nothing could be strange, in our strange
situation. Not eveft the mention of the
names of Jordan Spence and Gene
Archer excited Bob. His first comment
was brief and to the point: '
“Nobody planned this little reunion
for us, my love. That we. know, all
right.”
"Evidently two rival influences have
been working against us,” I asserted.
“And working independently of each
other. And they've muffed it,” said
Bob. “I'm sure that Certeis had me
shut up. How he came to have the
chance, I’ll tell you later. He didn’t
go to It directly, believe me. Nobody
can ever accuse him. He took that pre
caution.”
“I'm here because Donna Tlamilfa hates
me,” I explained. “There • may be sec
ondary reasons- such a§ my own rash
ness—but Donna Camilla is the impor
tant reason. I do not i jlieve that, either
of the areh-eonspirato! . knew what the
other was plotting,” I added.
“And so they defeated each other—
by giving you back to my arms,” Bob
concluded, with a kiss.
“If we are going to die,” I whispered,
“we will die--” I couldn’t finish the sen
tence. Bob did that for me:
“Together!” he said with ills lips on
mine.
Ts a wife has lqved a husban<( as
sincerely as I have loved Bob, “being
together” becomes her supreme need.
“Being together” w ill make even dying
easy. J wasn’t afraid any longer of
sudden death by accident or murder. I
had my husband with me.*
But my love and my presence didn't
reconcile my husband to leave this life.
On the contrary, It immediately
strengthened hls desire to survive. He
exclaimed:
“Die? Not yet, my dear. I’m not
resigned to the end and I'm not going
to be, for quite a little while. When
I wgs alone down there, helpless and
hopeless, facing the inevitable, I man
aged to camouflage a pretty fair de
gree of courage and phllusopby, but
my dear, now that you’re with me, I
want to live and I swear, by alj the
love we haTe for each other, that you
and I are going to get out of this,
somehow.”
“Bob—together—we can we can man
age anything!” I ventured rashly. Then
to prove my words true I meditated
upon a possibility of escape. There was
but one way out of the dungeon. Bob
would have to go up the way I had come
down. It ended ,to be sure, in another
prison. But it was a nicer prison than
the one we occupied. Moreover, we had
friends in the secret chamber. I won
dered why they were so still. Not a
sound betrayed their presence above
us.
“I should think they would call to
us,"l said. “They have a rope—Cbrys
and I made it. They could lengthen it
to reach to the bottom of the shaft.”
"I suppooe they think you are dead,
Jane," Bob said solemnly.
“I'm very much alive—so much so that
I could help you overpower your guard,
when he comes. When will he come,
Bob?”
“Never-never again, my dear. The
uniformed Mexicans who put me down
here informed me that I had seen the
last of this earth. One was a kind fel
low. He left me an automatic. He
said it was against orders but he
didn't want me to suffer needlessly. He
took ray valuables in exchange. I’m
mighty glad I have that gun, now you’re
with ine. Jane.”
Bob didn’t explain why be was glad
he had the gun. He didn't need to.
I knew and pressed hls hand to let him
know how completely I understood hls
meaning. If be died first—and If I were
left, what would I need except that auto
tnatic?

‘BETTER NO SKIRT
THAN 1920 KWH’
So Says Woman Editor in Plea
for Saneness.
NEW YORK, Jan. 21.— “1t is a very
dreadful thing to expose a girl’s figure
to the world in the way today’s fashions
expose it.
“It is a frightful thing to bow to
the modes’ decree of skirts twelve or
fourteen inches from the floor, thereby
revealing only'''part of the leg and serv
ing neither art, modesty nor comfort.
“It would be better to show the en
tire leg. i At least that would bg more
beautiful. The other thing Is merely
ugly and vulgar because it is sug
gestive.”
These statements and others akin
them distinguished the lecture of Miss
Helen Louise Johnson, editor of the Gen
eral Federation Magazine, given today
at Columbia university in connection
with the arts and sciences course.
Miss Johnson’s subject was "The
Ethics of Dress,” a plea for tb-. stand
ardization of women’s apparel, especially
that for street wear.

To Keep Skin in Fine
Condition in Winter
It would he much better for the skim if
little cream, powder or rouge were used
during the winter term. These things
which .clog the pores, tend to aid wind
and weather in roughening and coarsen-'
ing the skin. Ordinary mereolized wax
will do more for the complexion, and
without encouraging the skin to chan,
crack or become harsh and leathery. It
is the ideal application for the season,
as it not only keeps the pores clean,
but daily removes particles of scarf skin
which have been spoiled by winds or
temperature. By constantly keeping the
complexion clear, white and soft, it does
more toward perpetuating a youthful
countenance than any of the arts or
artifices commonly employed. One ounce
of mereolized wax, obtainable at any
drugstore, will completely renovate the
worst complexion. It is applied at night
like cold cream and washed off in the

GREAT BELIEVER
IN BLACK-DRAUGHT
Oklahoma Lady Tells How Her
Husband Believes In Black-
Draught and Uses It For
Many Ailments.
Nowata, Okla. —Mrs. W. B. Daw
son, a resident of this place, says:
“My husband Is a great believer in
Black-Draught and thinks it cures
about everything.
“It is splendid for headache, con
stipation (which usually causes head
ache), indigestion or any kind of
stoipach trouble, and we just keep it
for these troubles. I don’t know when
we haven’t used it, and we always
find it satisfactory.
“I know it has done us both a lot
of good and saved us many dollars.
I use it in teaspoon doses at first and
follow with small doses, and it sure
does make a person feel like new.
“It cleanses the liver better than
any other liver tonic 1 have ever used,
and after taking a thorough course
nature asserts itself and you are not
left in a constipated condition that
follows a lot of other active medi
cines. This is one thing I like espe
cially about it.”
For over 70 years Thedford’s Black-
Draught has been in use for many
simple ailfnents and today is a recog- :
nized standard remedy in thousands
of family medicine chests. It will j
pay you to keep Black-Draught in the i
house for use when needed.
