Chapters From a Woman's Life
By Jane Phelps
Chapter 36
Everything was ready, "Walter and I
dressed and waiting when the guests
arrived. As I took a last look at my
table, at the food in the kitchen, I
smiled happily. Mrs. Page would have
nothing to criticize.
She looked very aristocratic, very
handsome when she appeared.
"I am very proud of you, mother,
"Walter said. "You are remarkably
young looking and that dress is very
"You flatter me, my son. But I am
gratified for I know you have perfect
taste, as an artist should."
Our guests arrived punctually, and
we were soon seated at table. Jennie
in a new black dress with apron and
cap served. I watched her closely at
first, fearing she might make some
mistake, but she did so nicely I became
interested in the conversation.
Until we reached the salad every
thing went all right, then she served
Mrs. Gordon first, muttered something,
grabbed the plate' from her and placed
it before me.
No one said anything, but I saw Mrs.
Page's face. It made me almost ill.
Jennie realized she had blundered and
"became nervous. As she placed , the
salad before Mrs. Page she put the
plate too near the edge of the table
and it fell into her lap.
I started to rise, but Mrs. Page mo
tioned me to keep still.
"It is nothing," she said,, then re
sumed her conversation as if there
had been no accident, although I knew
the rich dressing must have spotted
her dress; and that she would be very
much annoyed by Jennie's blunder.
I trembled with apprehension and
annoyance, yet I couldn't help admir
ing her aplomb. She was calm as if
nothing had occurred out of the ordin
ary; as if having a plat of salad
dumped into her lap was an everyday
When finally the dinner was over
the desert and coffee were nicely
served although Jennie's cheeks were
crimson, and I feared further disaster
and we adjourned to the living room
p.nd the card tables, Mrs. Page excused
herself a moment, I know to clean her
diesis. Oh, why couldn't Jennie have
dumped it in my lap? I thought. Yet
I knew the soiled dress would be a
lesser cause for complaint than the
bungling service.
But no trace of annoyance appeared
in her manner when she reappeared
and took her place at the card table.
She played carefully and well as al
ways, took her part in the conversation
and was absolutely at ease. Which
was a good deal more than I was.
It was midnight when our guests
loft. As the door closed after them,
Walter said:
"Well, they all seemed to hate a
good time, didn't they?"
"I hope so," I returned.
"I should advise giving no more din
ners," Mrs. Page said. "I was fearful
pomething would go wrong. It was
intensely mortifying to me."
"I am so sorry," I replied. "I hope
your dress wasn't ruined."
'The dress is a secondary matter.
It in my first experience of a dinner
spoiled by inefficient service. I felt
very ill at ease. Please don't attempt
t entertaining again while I am here."
"Oh, come, mater!" Walter said. He
had seen the tears in my eyes. I had
worked so hard to have the dinner a
success, was tired and nervous over
the mishap. "It was an accident. I
thought Jennie did very well."
"Very w'ell is not sufficient at a
formal dinner. Every detail should be
'Well, I'm for hitting the hay! Come
on, Doreen; and goodnight, mother."
He hurried me out of the room before
fhe could reply.
I knew he did it to save me and I
was grateful. But I just put my head
on his shoulder, as soon as we were
alone, and cried like a baby. I had
wantPd so to have everything nice and
it had been a failure.
Walter kept telling me how good the
dinner was. how everyone seemed to
enjoy it, trying to comfort me. But it
wat not until he said:
"It might have been worse, Doreen,
the hot soup or the coffee, and the
mater certainly carried it off well. You
have to hand it to her," that I stopped
crying to laugh hysterically.
She was wonderful," I conceded.
"But, don't you see, that makes it all
the worse for me, that she should have
to be?"
"Well, forget it and come to bed."
I went to bed but I couldn't forget
it. I knew well enough I had not heard
the last of It; probably would not
while his mother remained with me.

Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am a young
man of twenty-two years. I am goins
lo school and I am engaged to a yout.;;
lady who is also attending another
j-chool. I love her very dearly and sh?
nays she loves me, tut she has dates
with some olher fellows who were old
'chums before I met her. She says she
tioesn't think it wroi.g, but I do.
She seems to iove me very much
when we are together. I love her so
much that I do not want to go with
any other girls. It was for her that
1 went tack to schoo1
She also has a girl friend whom
dislike veiy much and she has caused
a great deal ot trouble Detween us,
but she will not drop him. Please tell
me whether I should quit school or
quit going with her and forget her.
Tell me if you think a girl who is en
gaged should have dates wiih any
other one. "
M. T. M. M.
A girl who is enraged rarely has
iates with other young men. I should
think, however, since you and your
fiancee' do not attend the same school
it i3 only natural that each should
vant to go with some one else when it
Is impossible to be together. My ad
vice is to have faith in the irl and in
ner love lor you. Let uer go with
jther young men since she is deter
mined to do so; there could be no
greater test of the sincerity of her
love. If she finds some one she likes
better, you surely ought to know it be
fore you take so final a step as marriage.

A Little Girl's Task.
