Of course you use an antiseptic in vour
family ana in me enre or your own per
son, and you want the Lest.
Instead ot what you havo been usinrj
such as liquid or tablet antiseptics or
peroxide, won't you please try Paxtine,
a concentrated antiseptic powder to bo
dissolved in water as needed.
Paxtino is more economical, more
cleansing, moro germicidal and more
healing than anything you evr used.
In til o toilet to cleanse and whiten
the teeth, remove tartar and prevent
decay. To disinfect the mouth, destroy
disease germs, and purify the breath.
To keep artificial teeth and bridgework
clean and odorless. To remove nicotine
from the teeth and purify the breath
after smoking. To eradicate perspira
tion odors by sponge bathing.
As a medicinal agent for local
treatment of feminine ills where pelvic
catarrh, inflammation and ulceration
exist, nothing equals hot douches of
Paxtine. For ten years the Lydia E.
Pinkham Med. Co. has been . ?zularly
advising their natients to use it ,;cause
of its extraordinary cleansing, healing
and germicidal power. For this pur
pose al one Paxtine is worth its we ight
in gold. Also for nasal catarrh, sore
throat, inflamed eyes, cuts and wounds.

"So, Mis' Mason," Mrs. Calley
concluded, "I've brought you this
girl tos hire her oift in a good, safe,
plain home." 1
Mrs. Calley carmicvor quito forgot
that" alio was oncja housekcopdr for
"rich folks," especially for tho Stur
tovanfc Welds, whchllow hor a small
pension. She nlvovs distinctly con
descends toward Mxvillo households
and their uncertain maids.
"What is thaT young person's
nam6?" Mrs. Mosmi asked,' with her
odd, shy haughtiness. ,
"Selena," thogirl herself an
swered. "Selena Melissa Saleag."
Her high, shrilly voice made evon
young Professor Maflcfa, in the libra
ry boyond, gloncdiup surprised. In
his brief vacatioii. from the college
whero ho taught chemistry ho seldom
noticed the temporary ruler of his
mother's kitchen jbut this specimen
promised interest:' Blushing hotly,
the girl went on
"I'm hunting work. Do you want
mo to como?" M
And thercuponhe smiled straight
at Mrs. Mason with absolutely con
fiding innocence jland Mrs. Mason
stammered: "Why, yes, Selena I
And that is how -Selena Melissa Sa
leag was installedSn the Mason fam
Apart from her uncouthness she
was not unattractive.
"In fact," the professor told his
mother, "if that girl's hair was not
hauled quite eo tight back from her
face, and if she could hold her mouth
shut instead of ' open, and knew
where to put her arms and her
hands, she might pass for one of
our freslimen from a country school.
Her eyes are wonderful."
But despite Mrs. Mason's kindly
efforts to improve these deficiencies
Selena remained what the professor
insisted was "a serene caricature of
her inherent possibilities." Mean
while the professor watched with se
cret enjoyment the spectacle of Se
lena doing her best to be what she
called "good, plain help," and his
mother trying to make her over into
what she (onsidered "a well-trained
servant." That Selena plainly nev
er could become though she cer
tainly "helped." For all that pendu
lous lower lip of hers, and her
drooping shoulders, and the queer.
awKwaru way sne let ner arms
dangle, palms front, Selena could
work both neatly and rapidly. Iler
big, red fingers did no damage, and
the professor oted that except for
being so yjost unnaturally red,
they wereiautiful and curiously
well kept(Ta girl of her kind.i
In the professor's presence Selena
seemed always to touch the very
summit of her green simplicity. She
begged him, for example, to take
down from the hall a picture of
"Daniel in the Lion's Den."
"Why, Mr. Mason!" no could
havq sworn there were tears in her
great, blue eyes. "Can't you see
there ain't one kind face amongst
all them lions?"
Even when away at college he
might not forget Selena. The tan
pajamas could not be forwarded "at
once because they had been elabo
rately starched and ironed by Selena
"so they'd be al fine for Mr. Profes
sor's next party." Mrs. Mason,
whoso senso of humor was limited,
wrote her son perplexedly when Sele
na asked her how soon she meant to
call on Mrs. Calley.
"Of course you'd ought to call on
her. She brought mo here !" Selena
had argued. "Say, everybody knows
that visitin' shouldn't bo all on the
Then one day, without excuse, al
most without warning, Selena went
away. Mrs. Calley assumed an al
most belligerent silence. Even in his
snug college study the professor felt
oddly depressed by the news. There
was to bo a vacation next week and
how dull home woulu be without Se
lena's cheerful, diverting follies!
The professor sighed as ho went to
his appointment to address the Grad
uate club of a neighboring woman's
college on "Chomistry in the Home."
Later his smile was rueful when he
heard that the meeting would close
with a general discussion of "The
Tho discussion dragged. Every
one looked relieved when a tall, fair
girl entered hurriedly and was led
to the front of tho room.
"Barbara Weld," the secretary
whispered to tho professor, "gradu
ated last year. She'll bo interesting I"
And she was.
"I must confess,", she began, "that
I've studied this subject, pretty inti-'nately."
Briefly she outlined hef theories
"And now," she suggested, "per
haps you'll understand better if I
illustrate from real life. This, for

times hcata her correct in maids.
Quito as suddenly Miss Weld was
herself oirain, bowing to the ap
plause. Then, with a smile that was
sweet, innocont and so familiar to
the professor that it made him actu
"Thank you," she laughed, "and
just for pure fun, I'll show you tho

Before them all her shoulders
dnrpped, her jaw pushed forward
and hung down, her right arm
dangled clumsily, palm forward,
with all tho awkwardness of Sele
na. And then tho prolesBor under

of laughing women, he sat and
raged. She this girl had spied
upon his home, had made sport of
it. She had mocked at his mother
for all the world to see. Only give
him a chanco to confront this trai
tor and make her ashamed of her
Yet when she went on to imitate
other mistresses, in honesty he had
to admit that through the fun she
really showed where certain domestic
troubles lay; and slowly ho realized
that she could liardly have "taken
off" hi3 mother more justly or more
mercifully. Ho knew now why his
home was so often maidless. Still
the sting hurt; and when in tho later
reception ho found himself close to
the ex Selena Melissa he felt very
"Oh," she was saying, "we've a re
tired housekeeper a Mrs. Calley
who helps me to material, though
sometimes far afield."
"As far as Dixville, Miss Weld?"
Selena Barbara Melissa Weld Sa
leag wheeled to faco the professor.
"You !" she gasped. "Here I Were
were you that lecturer who spoke
before I came? And I oh, what
must you think?"
The surrounding group had drift
ed toward the refreshment table,
leaving the two alone. Now that
the professor was close to Miss Weld,
looking down into those familiar
eyes, at last harmoniously framed,
he abruptly lost his scientific head.
"Think?" he stammered, "think?"
why, Selena, I think you're beauti
ful"!" And Barbara Weld, though laugh
ing, blushed as hotly as ever had Se
"Seriously, please try to forgive
me," she pleaded at last, "and tell
the whole truth to your mother. I
really do love her," she added softly.
"She was very kind to me. Some
day I hope to see her again per
"Not perhaps," interrupted the
professor, "certainly ! She must see
you, Selena, like this "
Again he was growing intoxicated
by his nearness to those great, inno
cent eyes and by something he
thought he read in them.
"Yes that is thank you " Bar
bara Weld answered nervously. "I
I wonder " Iler faco lit suddenly
with an inspiration. "Why shouldn't
you both spend this coming vacation
with us ? My mother would lovo to

her eyes danced at him "everybody
knows that visitin' shouldn't be all
