Every Woman Has Secret Pity for the Man Who Has to Advertise for a Wife
0 Some Early Fall Frocks and Suits The little trock we picture is ot plaid ratine com bined with chiffon and white satin. A vest of the white satin buttons down the front with tiny pearl button?, and over this fall the deep bretelle like revers. ending in fringe. The chiffon is shirred down the shoulders and forms the under arm of waist and sleeve alike. The sleeve ends in quaint cuffs of the plaid, and these continue in a narrowing line of cloth up the chiffon sleeve. The chiffon crosses the satin vest and ends in a tiny knot. The skirt is entirely of the plaid ratine or boucle 'cloth, and is girdled below the hips by a self sash which has long fringed ends I'rom beneath these & She's Not Interested «l s -? X - iP h * the best you ,:an ! I do? inquired the young woman s * father, as the young man left ' them. The young woman's father had just arrived for the weekend with his family at the summer hotel ' Really, father," began the young; woman with great dignity. "I" — ' Pussy Foot Timmons!" gurtrled : her younger brother. "That's what tbe kids call him, dad: He walks | "P.ir Aard." said his father, "don't be j rude!' . I hadn't noticed the young j man's method of locomotion. It was > the. general effect that obtruded Itself I en my notice." "I am sure," said the young woman, j eyeing her parent with vast disap- t proval, "1 can't see what you find to j object to In Mr. Timmons! He is the moat popular young man here. All : the girls are wild about him. You j eiiould see him danee —and his man ners are perfect. His father has an immense house and owns blocks and blocks of"— "Yes, only it's not his father that I'm interested in," interrupted her parent. "I'm considering Mr. Tim mons apart from his family. That's the way you have to take men, you know —by themselves—irrespective of their immediate relations. 1 doubt if any grocer would be willing to take a tango two-step in payment of his bill." "I think you are perfectly horrid:" said his daughter. "You act as though I intended to marry Mr. Timmons: And if I did" — "Then I suppose you would," said her parent placidly. "I dbn't expect any little prejudices that I may have to influence you especially. All I can do is to steer you mind the right way and let you do the rest yourself. As you say, you and Mr. Timmons may be only the most casual friends, but I was a detective in a former existence, and in our brief 15 minutes interview I thought I discovered signs of your vivid interest in each other. I can't say that I wonder at lt —he'd naturally like you because you're a bright, pretty girl, and, of course, the. fa*t that he imports his ties with sucks to match and never pays less than $80 for a suit of clothes ana whips five pound boxes of chocolates from town to you every day or so counts" — "Who told you about the choco lates?" asked his daughter, hotly. "Kiebard" 1 Special Features of Interest to Women OLIVETTE ends the skirt falls in the fullness of a double invert ed pleat. A suit modeled lor early fall wear is that of the second picture. The costume is a tailored suit of black broadcloth with a high luster. Its trimming is wide Hercules braid, a bit of Balkan embroidery and some tiny frogs and ornaments of narrow braid. The coat is a long "swallow tail," bound in the braid, with an odd vest of the braid continuing in a scarf down the front and ending in huge tassels. The sleeves widen into great bell shaped cuffs over the wrists and have long simulated caps of the braid ending in a bishop's mitre near the cuff. The skirt has a iong pointed yoke extending well down the front, and to this the material is fulled ever so slightly. LMckey never said a word, pro tested her father. "Just looking at Mr. Timmons was enough to tell me that. Only remember that you'd get Indigestion and lose your figure If you ate chocolates that way very long. I'll bet he's told you already that life In America is crude and he intends to pass the most of his time abroad, with perhaps a small chateau in France or a villa on Capri—" "Somebody has been eavesdropping:" cried the young woman, pale with wrath. "I just know Dickey—" "Your little brother is a perfectly Innocent child," Insisted her father. "T never heard of Mr. Timmons till I met him this morning. Does he do anything?" "He's been traveling since he left college," said his daughter, frostily. "He had to quit in his senior year because of eye trouble. What are you laughing at? It was too bad, because he belonged to the most fashionable fraternity there. Of course, he expects to work—his father owns the Tim mons wheel plant and he's the only child, and —" "Can he make a wheelf" asked her parent with Interest. "My goodness, father*" cried his daughter. "He doesn't have to do manual labor like that! They em ploy men to do those things: He got the tennis championship at —" "I never heard of tennis paying the dry goods or the butcher's bill," mused her father. "I wish." said his daughter, tremu lously, "that you wouldn't be so per fectly horrid and materialistic! There are other things in life—" "Not many," said her father. "That is. that you can use In dally life. When your Mr. Timmons can make a real wheel from start to finish, bring him around. Until then —" "I'm not going to bring him around." said the young woman, a lit tle limply. "I'm not going to be tor mented this way by my own family. "What do you suppose I care about him, anyway?" "Ha-yee!" whooped her little brother, rushing up. "Fuasy Foot Timmons has taken that new girl out canoeing! You're left, all right, smarty!" "He can take a dozen new girls for all of me." retorted his sister. "I'm getting kind of tired of him, any way." Up-to-Date Jokes I There is situated about a quarter | of a mile from a certain pier a hotel I for the convenience of excursionists, iOn a tree close to the pier Is fixed • a board which Informs all comers that the hotel is only one hundred yards ! away.

K. says when a young man aska a young lady to go out the proper way is to ask the mother first if he may take the daughter, while I* S. says it is Just as proper to ask the young lady and let her ask the mother. L. S. It was an old fashioned custom, un fortunately passing into disuse, to ask the mother's consent first, no matter what the girl's age. It is still the correct thing to ask her consent if the girl is young. It is most unfortunate that this cour tesy, due the mother and which safe guards the girl, is not always ob served. TAKE THE ONE YOU LOVE DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: I have been keeping company with two young men and both have asked for my hand. One makes a very large salary, but I like the other better, who docs not make so much. Would you advise me as to what I am to do? PERPLEXED. If you knew the value of love you would not hesitate a moment. Take the one you like the more, my dear, and take him knowing that a mar riage of love and poverty is better than a marriage of wealth without love. TELL HIM SO DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: Some time ago a young man told me he loved me and I shunned him. Now I see my mistake, and am deeply in love with him. I see him every day. Let me know how I can win his love back again. A CONSTANT READER. Love Is too precarious to be lost when a word from you will save It. The next time you see him, give him to understand that you have changed your mind, and knowing his con stancy, are sure he still loves you. Tell him this; dan't write it. The written word mlgnt cause you em barrassment lf he has changed his mind. HE DOES*T LOVE YOU DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: I have been keeping company with a young man 23 years of age for two years. I had a diamond ring from him at Christmas and somehow or other we had a quarrel and I re turned the ring. He still calls to see me, but. he never asked me to take the ring again. Now he has gone to the country for business purposes and sent me a few letters and I answered them. Lately I wrote him several letters and he never answered. A. I am afraid, my dear, that you have lost him. I am very sorry, but, be lieve me in this: Fretting will never bring him back. If he doesn't hunt you up when he returns and renew his attentions it will prove that he no longer cares. Love is so precious a possession I am more than grieved that It was risked In a quarrel. TRY STRATEGY DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: Met two young ladles two years ago, and became engaged to one of them a year ago. We expect to get married this year, but this other young lady Is in our way. Wherever we go she goes with us. I do not speak to this young lady, and I don't want her to come up to my lady friend's home, but ahe is there when I am there. She comes to my home on Thursdays. M. C. I am quite sure you have exercised a man's privilege and complained to your fiancee, and just aa sure that It was without effect. Suppose you try being a little at tentive to this woman. I am positive your sweetheart will resent lt, and show her resentment by keeping the troublesome third party away. TRY INDIFFERENCE DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: I am 18 and in love with a man three years my senior, and we are employed in the same place. When I was first employed there he spoke quite often to me. Now he never shows the slightest attention to me. Kindly let me know how I can gain his love. ANNA BELL. I am afraid that ln your eagerness for love you have showed him you care for him. Don't speak to him; don't look at him. If there is any chance for his caring for you your Indifference will awaken his Interest quicker than an attitude of interested anxiety. I am so anxious for you to know the Joy of loving and being loved that I don't want you to lose It. ASK HER DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: I am 21 and have known a girl of 17 for the last two years. In the last six weeks I have learned to love her dearly. While speaking she al ways tells me that she wants to mar ry an actor, but shows by her actions that she cares for me. How can I find out whether she really loves me or bring her to un derstand the true feeling that I have for her? A. W. I am quite sure she holds that phan tom actor before you to torment you and that she really cares for you. Don't let lt worry you. If she is a sensible girl she will soon outgrow such foolish notions. Tell her you love her. Don't ex pect such an avowal from her until you have made lt first. THAT IS POSSIBLE DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: I have been keeping company with a young man for the last eight months, and bin parents object. Do you think that if he cared for me he would listen to his parents and leave me? S. R. N. 1 do not know his age or circum stances, nor why his parents object. If he is very young and you are some years his senior, if he is dependent on his parents, if they doubt your mo tives, these and many other reasons should lead him, lf he Is a good son, to heed their objections.

Continued from Yesterday CHAPTER XlV—Continued "Can you beat that"' he rumbled with a raucously sonorous vehemence. He regarded Mary with a stare of al most reverential wonder. "A crook apeallng to the law!" There came a new note Into the woman's voice as she answered the Jibe. "No, simply getting justice," she said, simply. "That's the remarkable part of It." She threw off her serious air. "Well, gentlemen," she concluded, "what are you going to do about it?" Burke explained. "This is what I'm going to do about it. One way or another I'm going to get you." The district attorney, however, judged it advisable to use more per suasive methods. "Miss Turner," he said, with an ap pearance of sincerity, "I'm going to appeal to your sense of fair play." Mary's shining eyes met his for a long moment, and before the chal lenge in hers his fell. He remem bered then those doubts that had as sailed him when this girl had been sentenced to prison, remembered the half hearted plea he had made in her behalf to RleTiard Gilder. "That was killed." Mary said; "killed four years ago." But Demarest persisted. Influence had been brought to bear on him. It was for her own sake now that he urged her. "Let young Gilder alone." Mary laughed again. But there was no hint of Joyousness In the mu sical tones. Her answer was frank — brutally frank. She had nothing to conceal. "His father sent me away for three years—three years for something I didn't do. Well, he's got to pay for it" By this time. Burke, a man of su perior intelligence, as one must be to reach such a position of authority, had come to realize that here was a case not to be carried through by blustering, by intimidation, by the rough ruses familiar to the force. Here was a woman of extraordinary intelligence, as well as of peculiar personal charm, who merely made sport of his fulmlnatlons, and showed herself essentially armed against anything he might do, by a court in junction, a thing unheard of until this moment in the case of a common crook. It dawned upon him that this was, indeed, not a common crook. Moreover, there had grown in him a certain admiration for the ingenuity and resource of this woman, though he retained all his rancor against one who dared thus to resist the duly constituted authority. So, in the end, he spoke to her frankly, without a trace of his former viru laa< c, with a very real, If rugged, sincerity. "Don't fool yourself, my girl," he said In his huge voice, which was now modulated to a degree that made it almost unfamiliar to himself. "You can't go through with this. There's always a weak link ln the chain somewhere. It's up to me to And it, and I will." His candor moved her to a like honesty. "Now," she said, and there was respect ln the glance she gave the stalwart man, "now you really sound dangerous." There came an interruption, alike unexpected by all. Fannie appeared at the door. "Mr. Kdward Gilder wishes to see you, Miss Turner," she said, with no appreciation of anything dynamic In the announcement. "Shall I show him tn?" "Oh. certainly." Mary answered, with an admirable pretense of indif ference, while Burke glared at De marest. and the district attorney ap peared ill at ease. "He shouldn't have come," Dema rest muttered, getting to his feet, ln reply to the puzzled glance of the Inspector, Then, while Mary sat quietly in tier chair at the desk, and the two men stood watching doubtfully the door, the maid appeared, stood aside, and said simply, "Mr. Gilder." There entered the erect, heavy fig ure of the man whom Mary had hated through the years. He stopped abruptly just within the room, gave a glance at the two men, then his eyes went to Mary, sitting at the desk, with her face lifted inquiringly. He did not pause to take in the beauty of that face, only its strength. He stared at her silently for a moment. Then he spoke in his orltund voice, a little tremulous from anxiety. "Are you the woman?" he said. There was something simple and primitive, something of dignity be yond the usual conventions, in his direct address. And there was the Bame primitive simplicity ln the answer. Between the two strong natures there was no subterfuge, no suggestion of polite evasions, of tergiversation, only the plea of truth to truth. Mary's acknowledgment was as plain as his own question. "I am the woman. What do you want?" • * * Thus two honest folk had met face to face. "My son." The man's answer was complete. But Mary touched a tragic note in her question. It was risked in no frivolous spirit, but, of a sudden, she guessed that his coming was alto gether of his own volition, and not the result of his son's information, as at first she had supposed. "Have you seen him recently?" she asked. "No." Gilder answered. "Then, why did you come?" Thereat, the man was seized with a fatherly fury. His heavy face was congested, and his sonorous voice was harsh with virtuous rebuke. "Because I intend to save my boy from a great folly. lam informed that he is infatuated with you, and Inspector Burke tells me—why—he tells me.—why—he tells me " He paused, unable for a moment to con tinue from an excess of emotion. But his gray eyes burned fiercely ln accusation against her. inspector Burke himself filled the void in the halting sentence. "1 told you she had been a former convict."

"Tell me." he said with a certain dignity, "is this true?" Here, then, was the moment for which she had longed through weary days, through weary years. Here was the man whom she hated, suppliant before her to know the truth. Her heart quickened. Truly, vengeance is sweet to one who has suffered un justly. "Is this true?" the man repeated, with something of horror in his voice. "It is," Mary said quietly. For a little there was silence in the room. Once, Inspector Burke started to speak, but the magnate made an imperative gesture, and the officer held his peace. Always, Mary rested motionless.

It is said she was pronounced by New York's foremost the atrical manager as "The most perfectly formed woman alive." As Texas Gulnan had to perform at ! the matinee it seemed the easiest ! thing ln the world to arrange an in terview without consulting her. The vigilant stage doorkeeper was easily passed. The dressing room was hos pitably turned open by a maid, and then —well, Miss Gulnan, that is, what is left of her, appeared. "So you have come to learn the story of my weight reduction, have you?" said Texas in her breezy style, with her glorious countenance beam ing in smiles at her supreme gladness ' realizing how appreciative the world was ln bestowing ad miration and applause upon I her, all on account of the new I glory of her form, which she I transformed almost as if by I magic with her own marvel- ous new treatment. "While you are not going to get away with my se- cret, said Texas. "It is true that my seventy pounds of weight reduction was brought about with my own de lightful treatment, but It cost me a pretty sum of money to learn It. and I am not giving my secret of how I lost my weight free to reporters, but I have written a book telling all about this won drous new treat ment which rescued me from the thral dom of fat. This book has just come off the press and is offered free to fat burdened men and women, as I early learned In life that the onlj- way to know happiness was to tire It to others, and lf by letting the world know of this harmless, quick method of reducing weight I can do a great good, then I will feel that 1 have not lived in vain." "But won't you give me an inkling of its component parts? Just a sug gestion as to what it is or will I have to be content to read your free book telling all about it?" "That Is exactly it," said Texas, "but I don't mind telling you what the treatment is not. It does not consist of internal drugs or medicine; there Is nothing to take internally. Neither is there any pink colored camphor water, or worthless, harmful stuff to rub on the body. There is no sweat ing, no bandages, no Turkish baths. The treatment does not consist of a single exercise or physical culture of any description. There is no diet. One may absolutely eat all the food they desire of any kind, and go on reduclnsr without depriving them selves tn any way. ' "There are no enemas or flushing of the colon, no harmful massaging, no sweating garments to wear, no im mersing yourself in hot baths with the tub filled with obesity water or epaom salts, nor does it include any medical concoction of any doctor, and it has nothing to do with any drug store prescription to have filled. There is no formufa to carry out, no soaps to rub on the skin; neither is lt a religious faith cure or Christian Science stunt. It is not a vibratory electric massage treatment, ment.i' suggestion—no. and lt is not a belt of mechanical device of any kind. "I have tried many such fakes. 1 tried drugs, pills, capsules, harmful concoctions to rub on the body. J have tried sweating and taking Turk ish baths, exercising, physical culture and everything known to science without result, and without losing weight.

Here was the time of her victory. Opposite her was the man who had caused her anguish, the man whose unjust action had ruined her life. Now. he was her humble peti tioner, but this servility could be of no avail to tave him from shame. .He must drink of the dregs of humilia tion—and then again. No price were too great to pay for a wrong such as that which he had put upon her. At last. Gilder was restored in a measure to his self-possession. He spoke with the surencss of a man of wealth, confident that money will salve any wound. "How much?" he asked, baldly. Mary smiled an Inscrutable smile. "Oh, I don't need money," she said.

After the first three days 1 noticed It begin ning to leave me. My reduction grew I greater and greater until finally f j waa almost appalled with delight when I realized the stupendous suc cess of my efforts and when I awoke to the fact that I had reduced 70 pounds of my fat without leaving a wrinkle, and t>.e glory of my new figure and grace and beauty of my curves gave me the admiration of the world. I enjoyed the triumph of my life and the success of my whole career when my manager, Mr. Shu- j bert, on account of my glorious new | figure, made me the star of the "Pass- Ing Show,' and. mind you. this very : same manager had sr>!d I was doomed I to oblivion just a short time before \ when I tipped the scales at two hun dred and four pounds. I was crushed and bewildered when he told me he could not give ire a pari In the 'Pass ing Show' unless I could reduce my enormous weight, and my heart hangs heavy with the memory of the fat I days" that are gone when my fat, j ungainly figure made me realize that carelessly. "Inspector Burke wfll tell you how easy It is for me to get it." Gilder looked at her with a newly dawning respect; then his shrewdness suggested a retort. "Do you want my son to leurn what you are?" he said. Mary laughed. There was some thing dreadful in tha'. burst of spuri ous amusement. "Why not?" she answered. "I'm ready to tell him myself." Then Glider showed the true heart of him, in which love for his boy was before all else. He found himself wholly at a loss before the woman's unexpected reply. "But I don't want him to know," he stammered. "Why, I've spared the boy all his life. If he really loves you—it will —" At that moment the son himself en tered hurriedly from the hallway. In his eagerness, he saw no one save the woman whom he loved. At his en trance, Mary rose and moved back ward a step involuntarily, in sheer surprise over his coming, even though she had known he must come—per haps from some other emotion, deeper, hidden as yet even from herself. The young man, with his whole some face alight with tenderness, went swiftly to her, while the other three men stood silent, motionless, abashed by the event. And Dick took Mary's hand in a warm clasp, pressed it tenderly. "I didn't see father," he said hap pily, "but I left him a note on his desk at the office." Then, somehow, the surcharged at mosphere penetrated his conscious, ness, and he looked around, to see his father standing grimly opposite him. But there was no change In his ex pression beyond a more radiant smile. "Hello, dad:" he cried, joyously. "Then you got my note?" The voice of the older man came with a sinister force and saturnine. "No, Dick, I haven't had any note." (Continued Tomorrow) I was doomed to despair and failure. "My success ln reducing my own fat proves that there is no such word as •fall.' I simply would not be re signed to my fate, and although every one said Texas, there Is no way out of your dilemma,' and told me that no fat reducing specialist could reduce my weight, I determined not to give up in despair, with the result that I absolutely conquered my fat. My new, great book on obesity, which gives full particulars of my simple, safe, quick, harmless, fat reducing treatment, is now ready and will be sent free to all who wish to reduce their weight any number of pounds." It is simply astonishing the furore this new treatment Is causing among the intimate friends of Miss Guinan to whom she has given it. A letter from the world's most famous dancer Ija Petite Adelaide, says: "Dear Miss Guinan: Let me congratulate you upon the high excellence of your re markable new obesity treatment, which 1 iind reduces me as rapidly as I desire. Sincerely, Adelaide." Other letters of praise and gratitude are pouring in to Miss Guinan from all parts of the country from those who have reduced with her successful treatment. Louise Brunell, tho Quaker maid, one of the earth's greatest beauties, states she lost 10 pounds the first week with this as tonishing new treatment. It is said this remarkable treatment is not un like the treatment by the court ladies and famous actresses of the Old World, who have been using a similar remedy throughout Europe, and the remarkable thing is that Texas Guinan is the first to introduce lt in America.
