I IlLOVE and MARRIED LIFEl I b, the noted author I ji Idali Glome Gibson j I THE STORY OF THE GOLD j MESH BAG Certainly John lost no tunc in 'go ing over the top" with' a vengeance., "hen I got into his car and we turned to go home. "Is Karl Shepard in love with you?" ho asked in a most ugly manner H "You will have to ask Mr. Shepard,'.' k I answered, my heart beginning to beat to suffocation. "He has given mo no information on the subject, cither by look, word, or deed. He's your friend, isn't he1" "Friend'' He doesn't seem to be showing it lately. In all our acquain I uince I have never seen Kail bo in terested In any woman as he seems to he In you I want you lo understand hat iho thing is sf) apparent thai 11 will be the talk of the whole club in o very short time. 1 will not have my wife's name connected wirh Karl Shep-' aid's or "any other man's I can not understand why, if you are not inter ested in him except as 'my friend' (emphasizing 'my friend' sarcastical ly), you make it possible for him to' make you a present of an $SOi sold purse'" J Must Be Absolute I Trur "Begging your pardon, John, I said I had lost my pirse. This must be ab soluicly true, since I saw it hanging from Elizabeth Moreland's arm and she stating emphatically thru ii was her own What could I do otherwl You would not have me say that Miss I Moreland had taken my purse, And I I don t think you would have BU state, before Alice and your friend, that you ad in some way gotten possession of it and given it to another woman, would you''" "The purse was Elizabeth's before it was yours," blurted John unexpected ly, "and when you declined to keep It, l returned it lo her. ' "What do you mean. John Gordon?"! I asked, again breathless "Simply this," he answered quickly, "I gave that purse o her before you' and I ever met When she found we had been married she sent it back to j me with some other gifts which were more or less trifling. While ou were ! at your father's I came across i; and' it seemed to me it was too handsome i to go begging so I sent it tp you. Af ter our fuss about it, if you will re-, member. I stuck it into tin pockM and this afternoon at the club I was foolish I enough to tell Elizabeth thai I had! given it t6 you and ihe mess you had made of the whole proceeding. Full of Pleasant Memories. "As I waa telling it to her. I absent mindedly took the purse out of my pocket. She took it from me, saying j I 'Let me have it back, John It is full of pleasant memories, and I will never carry it where (Catherine will see it. I was sorry the moment I had sent it back to you.' We had Ju?t reached this point in the conversation when you and Alice and Shepard came up and you know the rest. "I can'f understand, however, why Shepard should butt into uiy affairs He knows that I bought the purse for liess and hr also Knows that .she sent it back to me. Either ho is playing .1 very nasty Joke upen me in this mat ter of duplicating it for you, or else ou have told him some of your fane led troubles, and he is taking this oc casion to show me on which side he stands." "I'o 1 look like a woman, John, who tells her troubles, fancied or olhet wise, to anyone else? I have' never mentioned one of our disagreements, even to Alice or to my own mother. Perhaps I may have made seme eyni eal remarks from which Alice, being a woman, has guessed the truth, but you have told more by your brusque ways to me in public and your rnn tant attendance upon Elizabeth More- iana man any one eise. Why, Kathcrine, don't you know ihaf I care nothing at all for Eliza beth Moreland? I married you!" I ' Be careful. John, or you'll make me wish you had married her!" Reason for the Bickerings "By Jovp. you sometimes make me wish lhal I m-ver had married any one. It didn't seem to me that a worn i an could bo so different after marri I age as you have been. What is the reason we hae all these bickerings? (I am sure that I am just the same kind of a main that I was when I married you It is you who have entirely , changed." "No. John. I do not think we either I of us have changed. We did not know I each other We allowed our passion !and emotions to blind us. and now we are suffering from the current idea that the marriage bond will not only bind us together, but will in some mi jraculous way keep us forever in that rare but hazy atmosphere of romance. No two people should be allowed to marry as suddenly as did we." "Only divorces should be given quickly." said Joi n sarcastically. I will never know justnow it hap pened, but at the end of John's remark there was a crash, a cry, and I knew no more for a long time!

We neither need nor do sire anv othei company. Our home is our little world In which we live, shut awa from all the balance of the uni- rse When we were first married we used to be Invited to dinners, but we ilways refused, so now people let US alone to enjoy our solitude of two in peace." ' About the next thing I hear from you will be that you've gone to spend six months in Reno.' commented a worldly wise man, 'or else that your husband has eloped with his stenog rapher. You are taking the shorl cul to the divorce court, because no mar rled couple can stand such overdoses of each other's society." "II is beyond the endurance Of even! the most heroic Domesticity has to be diluted down vuth nine pa.!s of 1 Other people, and other interests, to get it to the point here the human system can assimilate it. Otherwise, it is fatal, ; "Believe me, my dear, no woman ever makes a greater mistake than when she isolates her husband from all companionship except her own. and barricades her door against the out side world She may think that that , is the way to keep him. and lo pre vent his interest straying to other subjects than herself. Sure Way to Lose Hubby. ' in r ality, it is the surest way to lose him because no peroxided siren lor black eyed vamp that her imag. nation can possibly conjure up, is one hall bo :. ngerous as her husband get ting fed up with her. Boredom Is the most deadly, and ihe most common ailment that afflb ts family life me. let a man get to the place where it makes him llred to even think of com ing home at night, and where he vis bailees the evening as one long yawn, and everything is over except Inter ring the dead bod or life witn pri vate luneral services. "And this casualty is bound to oc cur, sooner or later, in every home where a man and woman try to live to themselves They t. II each other everything they know and then are reduced to thrashing over old straw for conversation. They know eacfc other's opinion in advance on even conceivable subject Their life be comes dull and dreary, it Is a stag-: nant pool with no outlet or inlet, and j eventually they are reduced to quar reling Just to start something just to) break up the everlasting placid mono: ony of the dead fond in which they live. Impossible For Two to Be All. "It Is not possible for two people to b.- all-in-all to each other. W art built on a wider plan than that We require all sorts of people, with all sorts of ideas, and schemes, and plans, and with all sort of experiences and backgrounds to keep us Interested, 'and wideawake and alert, and any man and woman who voluntarilj shut them 1 selves away from their fellow crea- tureg do so at their peril. "For ope thing, nothing is more 'narrow than for people to live just to themselves. It fosters self conceit, and crankiness, and makes them opin ionated, and have an undue sense of th' ir own Importance If you will no tice you will see that people who live much alone always get queer, and do velop "ways," and are hard to get along with. And they are always dull and tiresome, too. ' It is association with other people j that rubs off our ankles, and polishes lour wit, and makes us mentally sup-; pie trying to keep up our end of the j conversation. There isn't anvbody in . ;the world so wise that he hasn't got! something to learn from others. Youj can get more useful information on 1 any subject by talking five mlnufc B with the man or woman who has 'specialized in that line than you could by studying the subject a year in books. Human Contact Brings Inspiration j "Moreover, there is something in human c:intpct that is an inspiration. I I It brings out things in us that we did I !not know were there ourselves, and (many a person owes the idea that has ,won him fame and fortune to some) I intangible suggestion that was given I him by another. j "And think of the selfishness of j people living to themselves, of look-; ing their doors and saying they will have 'xoihing to do with the joys and! sorrows of others, no interest in their; 'hope.;, no disappointment in their, failures! Why they have cut them selves off from halt of the joy of I living." HERE'S HOW W WRITE j SUCCESSFUL SCENARIOS j i . 1 -pHIS is the second article of a series by Monte M. Katterjohn, the famous 1 scenario expert, in which he tells Standard readers how to write plays for the motion picture screen. The opening installment was published Mon day Today Mr Katterjohn gives plain and pertinent advice to amateur writers of scenarios. The third article of the series will be published soon By MONTE M KATTERJOHN Scenario Writer. Producer of Katterjohn Plays and Author of "Carmen of the Klondike," "The Flame of the Yukon" 2nd Other Famous Photoplays. N THIS Installment it is my intention to give the amateur scenario writer 1 I'm) best advice on how to prepare his goods in order to obtain a market; tnd get the best prices that such a market offers. The amateur writer should not attempt to include technique in his play. It should be of sufficient length to tell the plot, clearly and completely, j use simple language, i.nd endeavor to make it read as interestingly as possible Have it typewritten, as no manu script written with pen or pencil is ever read by the studio editoi. -1 only one side of the paper in preparing the pla Always enclose a self-addressed en velope when mailing to the scenario editor. Place your name and address on I the upper left hand corner of the 1 I manuscript. DON'T WRITE LETTERS i Do not write a letter saying it is your first attempt. Do not try to Joke J with the editor or manager of produc i tion, and above all don't try to play on the editor's sympathy Some persons write in (hat they I hope their stones will be purchased as they are frightfully hard-up and in. need of food and clothes. A writer who j does these things never submits any thlng worth reading Give your story a title, as a major j Ity of studios register all manuscripts under the title name It is not advisable for an outside writer fo attempt to tell his story in I continuity form They should devote all their time to plot construction, characterization, and plot develop ment. A great writer years ago said, "The play is the thing.'' With the I screen writer. "The story is Ihe thing " The outside writer should let the stu dio take care of the continuity In almost all studios the custom new is for the Btaff writer to submit to the production manager his story in de-j tailed synopsis form, a consultation is then held in which the director, sev eral of the players, the production manager, and perhaps the cameraman participate. PICKED TO PIECES The synopsis is picked to pieces, dramatic situations aro lifted out bod ilv, others added, characters are devel- oped and the play completely changed Sometimes it is changed as much as 75 per cent. It is then given back to the contin uity writer to be placed In scene r? quence The continuity writer usually keeps in constant touch with the di- : rector at all times. The staff writer, although knowing his continuity technique., and aware of the peculiar needs of his respective Studio and what parts are best suited to the players, must even submit his Story In synopsis form before ii is I mapped out m continuity. Occasional ly. instead of submitting a synopsis in writing it Is analyzed and discussed verbally before being placed in contin Ulty form, but nevertheless, the princi 1 pie is the same CAN'T CHANGE FORM It can readily be seen that where a staff writer in a studio submits a synopsis before a continuity 13 started, thero Is no uso whatever of the outside author taking time and la-1 bor in the attempt to hand in his play in thir, manner Some writers excel in taking anoth er person's aynopsm and malting a con tinuity sheet from P. Others are bet ter equipped to wriu an original syn opsis. Some fen hive th- rare com fi liation of both attributes. It is the ability to put your story into words that counts. And so we come to the plot itself,' and its development. While it is now understood that the Imagination is the basic principle of) plot construction, yet the imagination! must work along constructive work manship lines, or it is liable to be er- ratle. KNOW LITERATURE A great many persons have vivid Imaginations which at times seem to I be nothing more or less thaji flights of fancy. The art of concentration must be utilized Insane asylums are I filled with untrained and undeveloped Imaginations. To have a vivid imagi nation and then not be able to use it because Of lack of training, is a trag-. edy. To -write plays for the screen the' author should have a knowledge of lit .1 erature, n knowledge of drama, and also be more or less a student of the 1 BAD BLOOD Pacific Coast Folks Testify Sandlake, OreRon "I want to writo a testimonial telling what Dr. Pierce's modi- , f L cmo has done For V s ' nie.
