[SHORT STORY f A Question of Dress. By EARL REED SILVERS (Copyright. 1916, by tlie McClure & Newspaper Syndicate) ggf WISH I could take you over to I the horse show In New York to* morrow night " said Jim Chaiuters. speaking with the frankness of an engaged young man to his worshipping financeo. "But I can't. I'm dead I ?.r~v? ' ' - . Edythe Merrill sighed resignedly. "If yon only could," she suggested, "1 would wear my green taffeta." "But I can't," Jim looked off Into t.'tc distance, pondering over the 7/hlra of fate which had given hlra o three thousand dollar Income and a four thousand dollar acquaintanceship. "How much would the horse show cost usv" he asked finally. ' About twenty-five dollars," Edythe looked hopeful. "Nope! You'd better give up all hope." Jim smiled whimsically at his impromptu rhyme. "I've got just ten dollars to my name, and that has to last me for three days." "And my dress Is so pretty," Edythe sighed. "Well, why not wear It to the club tonight!" "I can't; It's an afternoon dross." "What's it like?" Edythe manifested a slight degree of interest. "I'll let you see a picture of it it you care to," she said rising. "It'a in the April 'Ladles' 8tar.' " Jim, who had looked at dresses be fore, finding escape impossible, resigned himself to his fate. "Here It Is," explained Edythe, opening the magazine and indicating one of three young ladles representing the very latest in spring styles. "It's of all-silk chiffon taffeta. The body of the waist is of taffeta fitted loosely . over a lining. The back Is made in a separate panel shirred at the waistline and brought nrrmnd nvw tbn 1 shoulder# In front In a cape effect. The l shirred Medici collar of taffeta silk?" < Jim (axed out of the window and i wondered If his chum, Dud Chase, was i having a good time at the golf club, i "The vest Is of chiffon over shadow ] lace and Is trimmed with taffeta but- < tons,' Edythe's voice drone on. "And ?well. Isn't that strange?" , "Isn't what strange?" , "Why on this very page Is the pat- . tern for Doris Howards evening dress." ( Jim's eyes opened wide. A picture ( of the country club bazaar as his sis- , ter had described it flashed before him. , He started to say something, chock- t ed himself suddenly and assumed an | attitude of Indifference. "Which one?" he asked. , "The one next to mine. My. but i It's pretty!" "Not so pretty as yours. You have a new hat to go with the dress, hav- J j?'t.you?" "Yes! Would you like to see it?" "All right!' Til be down In a mln- < ute." i Edythe hurried up stairs; and as ' soon as she had disappeared, Jim selz- ' ed the magazine she had laid on the ' table and looked long and earnestly 1 at a picture of a dimpled young lady ' in blue satin, covered with silk net of the same shade. Then, hearing signs of activity from the room above, IF>: CONFESSIONS It is astonishing, little book, how i "rniicd up" life is. Al! at onco the j r.!e'.t of Dick's face as lie was dun- i en?, wl'.lt me brought me around to the point where j must again, as the t . homely saying ls? either "fish of cut I Lalt" ' i I caught a glimse of myself in one ] .of the splendid mirrors in the dining .room. From my enforced confine- ; . mei^t In the house, my skin had lost 1 til its tan and my neck and face attack me aB being of a dazzling wuuaiicaa except wnere il meiiuu hi- I .o a hesitating roslness of cheekB and I - k warmer kink of chin and throat. I sighed, little book, for 1 thought It was only because 1 was so good to look at Dick's eyes rested on me with ' such tender and beseeching regard. H I tried t0 take my mind away from H the rythmic motion of my feet, to keep H It clear from the somewhat confused notion I had of Dick this minute? Dick who was dancing better than I had ever known him to dance. Poor H old Dick, he was so absurd in his egH otlsm that he was almost lovable. All at once, little book, I knew l had been analyzing him, myself and H - our relation without getting anything more definite than my own individual !ty. That was the one thing I had lucceeded In disentangling from the duality that goes under the namo of marriage. "And they shall all be one flesh,"? perhaps but can they ever be one splrH It? It was not coldness or cruelty that made me think of this. For here was the crux of the whole matter. Dick and I had never been if one spirit, could never be one spirit When he came to me that memorable eight before our wedding at my call, \ lie held the Joy of life in his outstret1 ched hand, and the smile on his face - caused my throat to swell with sym pathy. W Tonight he was here, the same gay swj nisi* nut, vi. |1 I MiU OlUUlUfi WJIU U ID UO.UUO stretched out to me again; the Joy jf lite he offered me. But my throat H did ncft swell nor breath come hard. Instead a queer kind of acquiescence H ?- teemed to envelope, me I Wondered why .conjugal love i. should ebb and flow. Tonight with Dick's arms about mo, with the mus I Ic the lights and all the lite about me?life 1 had been away from so long | ?I almost felt a recruddo-euco of my atovc for Dick i "Aren't you tired, Margie?" Whisp ired Dick. "Do you know you are raUnclng better than ever, and j realMr believe I am not as awkward as leual." B "No, dearr I i?m not-tired, and you , i " a -j .tr. = WW' VSE? is# > " *a *AGE I FACTORY GIRLS DISCARI BLOOMERS FOR SA1 I-?I | And do you know little hook. I said his with no animosity at all.

I shook myself a little in his emtrace and murmured, "I guess 1 am ired. Dick. Let's find Mollle and . "had and go back to the hotel." "Margie, Margie, if you would only ilw&ya be as you are tonight. I'd . never find any excuse to leave you," whispered Dick as we were putting )n our wraps. It's ;all very exciting, little book, | sut i still am in doubt It you can call | it love.

After supper' that evening, before le took Edythe to the bazaar at the :ountry club. Jim drew a slip of paper from hla pocket and consumed ifteen long minutes in learning, word tor word, the detailed description of 3 certain evening gown. Reaching :he club, he wandered around with teeming almlessness, gradually drawing his companion toward a certain inte-room. ovor the door of which were emblazoned the words, "The Great Dress Description Contest." "What's this. I wonder." he said inlifferently, having piloted Edythe tbj he scene of his proposed activity. "It's a guessing contest," the girl txplained. "Doris Howard has on her new evening dress. Any man who hinks h'o knows anything ubout dress's is given five minutes in which to i write a description of it. The one' vho writes the best description wins j he prize of twenty-five dollars.

He entered the room and was seated at a table with paper and pencil before him. "Describe the dress and sign your name to the description," a pleasant voice advised him. "You're given five mlnntpti " Jim glanced at Doris Howard, who was standing on a slightly raised platform at the far end of the room. He scowled. "That dress Isn't blue." he muttered. "But I guess she must have Just changed the color." So, smiling confidently, he set to work. "This beautiful evening gown is of pink satin, silk net of the same shade and maize silk not bordered with gold spangles," ho wrote. "The wide girdle and pointed skirt sections of satin ' are mounted over a lining-foundation ! while the top of the bodice and sleeve j sections are of gold net joined withe the spangled guimpc. The skirt has a I foundation of messaline. finished at the I bottom with a flounce of lace." His description finished, he rejoined ! Edythe outside. They wandered about from booth to i booth, chatting happily until midnight J arrived, when the various prizes were i awarded. "The great dress description con-^ test." the president of the club an-; notinced, drew torth many responses. but by far the best description was given by our well-known fellow-club-1 T.i-jn \r?- ti ?

"Bat." the president continued, "al-j though Mr. Chambers's description1 was a wonder, he described the wrong j dress. Miss UowartVs creation, the la-! dies Inform me. is of deep rose-colored i taffeta and pale pink chiffon cloth, while the dross described by Mr.' Chambers was of satin, covored with silk net and bordered with gold spangles. Therefore, while we feel that Mr. Chambers should receive honorable mention, the prize niUBt go to Mr. Harold Janeway. whose description, although loss flowery, was more exact." When he had pnrtly recovered from the shock Jim drew Edytho to one corner of the room. "Didn't you tell me this was Dorlr. Howard's dress?" he asked, indicating the crumbled piece of paper he had drawn from his pocket. Edythe glancing at it, burst Into a stifled roar of laughter. "You foolish, foolish boy." she said, when she could control herself. "That isn't the one; you cut out the wrong picture and description. The right one was 011 tlio other side of my dress." "Well.

The whole house is filled with the accumulated poison from tho lungs of those who have lived beneath Its roof. Rooms of this kind are responsible for many cases of common colds. They are the breeding places of grip and pneumonia. Many cases of asthma aro also the result of a bad atmosphere. Open windows promote health. Many people complain they can scarcely wakp-up in the morning, or that they arise with a headache. This is the result of poor ventilation in the sleeping room.
