Dicky had laughed at m\ fears, and when I persisted, had be come highly offended at my lack of belief In his caution In keeping the weapon s» well concealed that .Tunioi never could find it. "Do I look like the half whs wh< leave loaded revolvers around in bureau drawers and writing desks'*" he had demanded hotly at one stag* ©f the argument. "Please give me credit for having an ounce or two ©f brains. It had been an angry controversy, one which left bitterness behind it because of the rancor we both had displayed, and the unpleasant th‘ngs prompted bv temper which we had tittered The outcome of it all had been the building of the wall safe, a suggestion of my father's who had arrived on an unexpected visit while the discussion was in progress—It had been a long drawn out affair ©f several days—and to my surprised chagrin had sided with Dicky "Ours is not an ordinary house hold. my darling " he had said to me privately. "Because of my work, and that of Mrs Underwood when she here, we aro never free from a possibility of something arising which may necessitate one of us tising a weapon.

A Problem of Beauty and —Courage! Will-Power Can Overcome the Destructive Habit of Finger• iVfli/ Biting, Says Authority . By Josephine Huddleston AIEITER came to my desk this morning that absolutely amaaed me. A young lady wrote in to ask what she could do to Dreak ner ■elf of the habit of biting her finger nails! I don’t be lieve that itj has even oc curred to me during the: past year or so that girls actually might still be biting their finger nails. My dears, its so old - fashioned I can’t believe that our modern girls, JD5EPMC WI1U p l 1U\. M«V4*40V»* V •• • healthy and perfectly groomed bodies, can be indulging such a beauty destroying habit. There is only one infallible way to stop biting one’s finger nails— and that is to STOP! Do it right this minute and don’t ever do it again! If vou really want to break yourself of this habit you can— and very easily. It all rests upon whether vou actually want to stop or whether you only think you want to. In other words, WILL POWER, indicated by a conscious and true desire to stop biting the nails is the only remedy. You may think you are nervous and believe that a habit of long standing has to be handled with great care, and offer these as an excuse for putting off the actual breaking of the trait, but this atti tude will not help in the least. You’ve simply got to make up your mind, once and for all/ that you are not going to nibble at an other nail and stick to it. Therefore, the first thing is a change of thought, for it is in the mind that the habit is firmly em bedded. When you bite your fin ger nails you are only carrying out the message sent to the muscles bj your brain. Next you can help to impress the new habits on the brain by taking special care of your hands anc nails for a few weeks, thus help ing to undo the harm at its root For example, keep your hands immaculately clean by washing them frequently, using plenty ol warm water and soap. Rinse th( hands carefully and when dryinj them push hack the cuticle File the nails carefully so tha1 all ragged edg<*s are smoothed off This in itself helps to impress th« new habit on your mind Clear under what little nails you hav< very carefully, so that all stain! are removed. Then, keep them thai way. Lrquid polish will help t< protect the nails until they grow out longer. If you need further aid in re membering not to bite your nails put a bit of quinine under eacr nail. THAT will remind you quid enough! And no quibbling with yourself about: “I do wish I could stop hit ing my nails, but I simply can’t I always forget!” You can’t foo any intelligent person with tha alibi If you want to you will!
