Always a Way
Out By LILIAN HALL CROWLEY (A 1111. by McClura Nawapapar Syndicate ) "Allle, dear, you look worried." "I am worried, mother.** “Why, what have you to be worried about? You're youug and pretty and engaged to John Shuler, the finest young man In the world.” “It’a this, mother: John has always moved In the best circles both at his home and at the university, and we have lived so simply here —pinching nickels—that I won’t know how* to manage the beautiful home he Is build ing for us." "You’ll learn, dear, and I will tell you everything 1 know. I had a nice home once." "Yes, 1 know, mother, but telling Isn’t seeing. I lack the practical knowledge of everyday usage. We’ve mostly eaten out of boxes, we’ve been so busy.” "That’s true enough. Allle." Mrs. Miingan and her daughter were sewing In their tiny living mom during this conversation. Two weeks before Alice had finished her first year in col lege. While there she hud met John Shuler and It was a love affair at first. Alice was working her way through college by being an assistant teacher. Her mother, left n widow with two little girls when very young, had made a brave fight to educate her children. Alice had been a wonderful help with the housework and sewing, and later with tutoring. Things were looking much better for them now, as Mrs. Mangan had heeu “You’ll Learn, Dear." offered a position as manager and de signer of the dressmaking department in one of the large stores. She was taking a two weeks' real that she very much needed. Mhe had done dress making for years In the little rooms a here she lived with her daughters and was weary of the drudgery of It. I.ouise. the youuger daughter, was In her sophomore year In high school. Alice, with her beauty and charm, had won the catch at the university. John Shuler’s parent* had come from a neighboring state for the graduation of their son. and Mrs. Maugun and I.ouise hud managed to scrape togeth er enough money to go and meet Al he’s intended husband and Ills family. Kverything bud been so pleasunt. Life looked very bright for them nil and now Allle was worried. Alice put down her sewing, grimly determined. "Mother. I have a plan and I hope you won’t hinder me It is this: You know the i linriaiiig Mr* Fred Merton who lives in iliut pretty house ou the corner of Kigldh and Pleasant streets?’’ • Yes. dear." •‘She nceils a maid and I have de cided to ask for the plaee. Now wait until 1 tell you my plan. I can work for her for two months before my wail ding. John isn’t coming here until then. That will give me some real money for my trousseau, and you can have my things made In your shop. I can learn how things should be done The bouse Is about the size of the cue I hid to live in In Oxbridge, and she keeps one maid and has a laundress come In. Just exactly as John and I planned for ourselves." “But—wouldn’t John and his fam ily be horrified at your working a* a servant 7' "They will never know," declared Alice. “I shall give auothar name. I uid used to work and I shall ask ques tion* and learu a lot. You know, Mrs. MfiTtO* belongs to on* of the baa: fafn Illes and always does m»- proper tlimg.” "If It were any one else, dear." said ilie mother. "I would think it a good plan : but I hate to think of you doing a servant’s work." •It Is the kind of work that thou sands of women do In their own home- Resides, I wouldn’t be a servant; I would only take the place of one for u few weeks, and I need the money a* well as the knowledge. Oxbridge. John’s home town, being a small place, goes In hard for society—parties all the time, and they dress more there than In a larger place. "I hate to go to Joliu with a miser able wardrobe. He wouldn’t care —the dear—tint for his sake 1 want some do-lies and some social knowledge. I can learn more in the short time I shall he at Mrs. Merton’s than in years later —besides, I shall be saved the em barrassment of inakiug mistakes.’* “Oh, dear!" said Mrs. Mangan. look ing bewildered. "Re a sport, mother, and we’ll en- Joy this secret together. We’ve lived so secluded here in these little up stairs rooms that no one pays any at tention to us. Mrs. Merton lias never seen me. although, being so popular. I have seen her and heard u lot about her. too. Please, mother." "Very well, Allie. 1 am almost en thused." I shall go ut once Htid apply for the place," said Alice as she pinned on her hut. Alice came back beaming with en thusiasm. "1 siuri tomorrow and Mrs. Merton Is a dear. I told her 1 was in experienced except in plain cooking. She will show me everything for a week. Then 1 will know the routine.** Alice returned every evening and told her mother and Louise of whut she luid gained in knowledge. She kept n notebook. ••Just think,” said she. "1 didn’t Know how a table should be set ; imr where to seal the gin** of honor, and dies 1 are important thing** to kicw I mu taking down the names of die imls of eliimi the Merlons have. •Then. tiM». Mrs. Merton is el airman of the urt department in the woman's club, and she told me a lot of liings that they study. For instance I know. now. that I know nothing about pictures ami I know John doe~n’t ; so we won't have any pictures In our house until we learn something mlmmi them." “You have the rest of your lives to select pictures." said Mrs. Mangan. "so I rlilnk you are wise there.” “Mrs Merton is going to borrow some of the papers that member* of the ciMS* have written and let me reud them. Then I have acre** to all her ari b«*oks. My uotebook Is nearly full now and I have l»een there only five week a." "And your clothes are going to he lovely." said Mrs. Mangan. happily. T think you’re the cleverest thing. Allle.” exclaimed I.ouise. “And I im not working any harder than if I were home. I have fhore money for clothes and all this house keeping knowledge besides. Then .too. I shall know how to manage a maid know how she should dress, wait on table and answer the door. I feel equal to my beautiful home now." The Bth of September and Alice’s wedding day arrived. John came with his paren t and met the bride with Louise, the bridesmaid, and their mother at the church. There was s beautiful though simple wedding and no reception afterward. The bride In golng-nway gown and hat left with her husband for the mountains Immediately after the cere mony. Mr. and Mrs. Shuler left at the same time for Oxbridge. It bad been a perfect day! That same evening Loulae remarked to her mother: T shouldn't be sur prised If Allle made John governor of the state some day.” "I should be more surprised If she didn't," calmly replied the mother. FINE FEATHERS By ANNETTE GREEN. <®. l»i*. b> McClura Newspaper Syndicate.) Lakeside, the beautiful summer home of Mrs. Carter, gleamed like no enchanted palace iu the moonlight, while from the brightly lighted ball room catue the strains of music, uiiugled with the sound of dancing and youthful laughter. Everybody seemed happy, except one. From the shadows of the upper balcony overlooking the ballroom u young man watched the gay scene below with a frown. And bn he cuught sight from time to time of a certain falry-Ilke figure among the dancers, a look of almost hitter pain swept over his fine feature*. "Why, I'txll. my dear boy!” ex claimed the hostess, spying the watch ing figure in the shadow as she atrolled by with another matron. ‘Aren’t you dancing?” He answered haltingly that he had a headache; didn’t feel up to It toulght. "I’m afraid you young peo ple stayed out on the lake in the sun too long today," replied Mrs. Carter. "What a nlty ! And this la Phoebe’a lajt nlxbt her* too." Phoebe's Ihs! night: Phil knew thtii. only too well! And again search ing her out among the dancing throng, he followed the lovely girlish figure iu silvery chiffons With longing eyes. Muttering an excuse to Mrs. Carter about getting some fresh Mir, lie turned away mid left the balcony, followed by his hostess' voice bidding him cotue buck later. Avoiding the gay groups on the ver anda Phil made his way through the shrubbery,* and dropping down on a bench by the shining lake, gave him self up to his hitter thoughts. With the strains from the ballroom ringing faintly In his ears, he closed Ids eyes to shut out the bright moonlight uud went over In his mind bit by bit Ida acquaintance with Phoebe, Mrs. Car ter's niece, from the day In June when she arrived, a stranger to them all. up in tonight, when she had come to mean everything to him. He had thought her quite the nicest girl he'd ever met ih«t first day, when. arriving at noon she found the rest of the house party gone for a tramp and a picnic, and he. her aunt’s nearest neighbor, bad taken her out in bis canoe on the luke for itie afternoon. He taught her how to puddle the canoe and the memory of her In her simple blue gingham dress with her golden hair blowing about her laughing face, came back to him tonight so clearly that he groaned and hurled ills face In his bunds. For lie bad never seen her In any simple glug ham gowns again. Cldc morning dresses and sport suits, correct yachting costumes, lacy embroidered things for afternoon and bountiful evening gowns had followed each other In varying succession, until I’li.l gave up all hope of ever daring to ask her to share ids lo\e mid for tlines. Even to ids uidultiubd mascu line mind Phoebe’s clothes -pcllevl niiieh money. He had au Idea that Ids month’s salary would not have paid for the silvery gown she was we..l ing that evening (and he was quite right). Well. It was madness to dream of asking auch*a girl to marry a young nr« luieet Just starting out in business. That was all he could do —dream. With a sigh he got up from the bench and started back to the liouae. He would have one more glimpse of Plmebe*a beloved face before she went ..ut of Ida life forever, although the sight of her. so dear, yet for Idm so iinatiainahle. would be only one more pang lie fouud a place at one of the ballroom w imlowa where he could look in unobserved. He was searching among the dancing couples for Phoebe, who seemed to have disappeared, when lie beard her name repeated Just In side tin- window. Someone was talk ing about her to a group of guests, and before lie could move away Pldl wa« rooted lo the spot in stunned surprise. “Phoebe?” the gossiping \olee went on ••«»h. my. no! All those stunning ••follies she’s been wearing Mrs. farter gave lier. all of them." She looks charming tonight; where Is she now?" asked a second voice. "1 saw lier go iiig toyvard the garden all alone a lit lie while ago." the other r.-pl •«l ; ••-lied taken off her hall gown and had • •it that old gingham thing she wore w lien she first came." pliil turned away from the window |||S| as Mrs. Carter laid m hand on bis trm. asking If hie hend still acl .1 Strangely enough, his headache wn« gone ami replying to liei kind ■" lulrles with 111-concealed haste he \nutted over the veranda railing and .a*hed around the house toward the Canadian, 104 Years Old.
