THE DECISION '
Synopsis of Preceding Chapters.
After ten years of married life, Mil
!icent Buchanan finds she is terribly
unhappy. Slie does not know why, be
cause her husband, Humphrey, gives
her everything she wants, and she has
social position in the little town of
Wissakeagan. She decides, cvnically,
that after ten years all married cou
ples grow tired of each other.
Her smalt sister, Patty, returns
from college and increases Millie's
unhapplness. She quarrels constantly
with Humphrey, particularly after he
loses his money, and one night he
suddenly disappears. Millie, Pattv
and the mother go to New York where
Patty takes a position. Millie is even
more unhappy and makes no friends
in the city.
Patty falls in love with" a wealthy
young man, Paul Darlington, and they
become secretly engaged. Millie re
ceives a letter from Humphrey asking
her to return to him.
Mrs Darl!ngton objects to the at
tentions paid Patty by her son. She
considers the girl beneath Paul.- so

Mrs. Munn, schemes to help the couple
out of the difficulties that beset them.

"She would have paid me," Millie
"Humph! Well I might pay you
something too, if I had any of my own
money. Mrs. Parke retorted.
For once Millie flared up in defense
"You neve had much, and you know
it, mother," she burst out. "You made
some awful investments soon after I
was married, and if Humphrey hadn't
come along in time, you would have
lost everything. As it was, he took

Dear Mrs. Thompson: Can there be
happiness where each goes his own
way? The husband goes on trips
without his wife, and if she goes at
all it is without him. I have worked
hard for thirty-five years to save and
now when I would enjoy spending
some of it, I am told to take my trips
alone. He travels a lot and I am left
a lot to put in my time as I best can.
I am unhappy, and I am lonely.
Isn't the secret of married life to
be interested in each other and the
home? So many men in middle life
don't have an yinterest outside of
I business and themselves.
A LONELY WIFE.
When a husband and wife are no
longer interested in each other, each
can go his own way and be happy,
but if one still loves the other, that
nerson cannot be happy alone.
I often wonder if a wife who works
and saves is as successful as the one
who is good sportsman and permits
extravagances because they make her
husband happy. Usually when a wom
an saves, her husband spends, and on
ly too often he enjoys the pretty
clothes other women wear and grows
indifferent to his wife because she has
become so commonplace.
Even if your husband will not go
with you on your trips, take them
and get a new point of view. It is
not too late to buy pretty clothes and
to enjoy yourself. New experiences
will make you more interesting and
it may be that you and your husband
can find something in common.
Dear Mrs. Thompson Does an an
nouncement of a marriage call for a
present? A READER

the party is a close friend, or you feel
inclined to send a gift as a token of
