I B in the world is a neck tie that |
refuses to slip and it is aouDiy i

r . " IvW
- *' "Why don't you wear another tie."
V .Lee suggested at length.
' ' "Because I am going out with Violet
!?-' \ . and she likes this tie. She gave it to
V me. in fact, last Christmas.
- "OhI" There was silence for some
*'?<- minutes.
"Ton don't need to worry about it.
I . You were out with her yesterday."
j, . Maurice said as he got the tie into '
=4? place at last.
"Well, haven't I a right to?"
t};-'.- "Of course; so hare L"
As Maurice hurried to keep his api
V polntment he thought of the conversaxion
he had just had with his rooej
-' mate. Was their mutual liking for
JjJ.V .Violet Fitzgerald going to cause a '
.breach to come between them?';
5Sl - Things could ndt go cn as they had j
^4?.-:-' . been going tor vac past two v?a?o.
Violet would have to make a chcic-j |
' between them, sooner or later. What J
""[> """ if she chooses Lcc? It was most like-'
' ly she wonld. for Lee was talented.j
heir to a large fortune and a scion of i
an old aristocratic Southern family. ,
. . . ^hUe he was working his way through ;
college and had nothing before him]
but an opportunity to work hard to at- j
tain big things in the world. It would :
be a long time before he couiJ reach {
wealth. But Violet wasn't the sort of
girl that wealth counted with, he told I
"himself?the character" and worth of i
. v a tnso would be what would impress I
her more. Even there. Lee did not fall!
Ha was a true friend and hdn- {
T-'aa the day was long. The prospects i
. - wv of winning Violet did not look veryj
? ' bright. Maurice felt, but still he was j
1 %. " sure Leo was the man of her choice. I
. }: ' "There is a dog show today." Vlo- (
let announced after the first greeting, |
"and you know how I love dogs."
"So do I; that is where we will go." [
he answered gaily?that was one ad- !
e- vpntMB he had over Lee. for Lee was j
not fond of dogs and both he and
J' Violet were enthusiastic over them.
It was a big exhibition and the noise
that assailed the couple as they en?
tered, deafened them for a moment
' but their ears became accustomed to I
J. it and they were able to discourse on j
r *7 the merits and demerits of the various j
p ?. speriutcns of the different breeds.
'Oh. lock at the chops on this bull-,
Violet cr 1 as she threw her |
7>r>o-r ! a Iv-racious looking anl
-w ' mal. ".'"l'tic the beauty? Wouldn't.
Bee be fr: htcued of him? Ho just'
' r hr:?v, bulldogs. but this old fellow'
. ? wr.u iin't hurt anything." j
^ ft . '"lie is a dandy." Maurice agreed..
-i ? "But loo": at this puppy over here . It
is actually weeping with homesick.
* - "So it Is!" Violet exclaimed as she
' ' hastened to cuddle the pup. The little
J: . fellow licked her fingers by way of
?- ?h?nirg and looked into her face with j
I big appealing eyes that seemed to say, j
"Please take me home."
The judging took their attention j
..next. Violet could spot the winner,
nearly every time. j
"I just knew that darkest Boston :
5". terrior would win." she said enthus-1
*? iastieally after a decision had been;
made. "He is the most or -tocratic I
k V-- fellow here. Family counts . >h dogs ;
I ' as well as men. Give me a thorough- !
brafj, I ran nick him every tine."
Tha started Maurice thinkiry. So!

caused her to cheer frantically from

looked black for the home team. When

tier friends among them: "It was
grand," she told them, "and I was
proud of ail the men on both teams."
She knew where to find Lee and
Maurice and nurnoa to uie pi&ie. ^
caps Maurice bad been studying bard
to graduate and tbat was why be bad
neglected her. she thought. Of course
that was it! Why hadn't she thought
>f that before?
She paused as she reached within
2earing distance of the members of
the team. It was Lee's voice raised
m angry protest. As she listened her
iheeks burned. What a poor loser he
yas. she thought, so unlike a true
rortsmau. Maurice spied her first and
lurried to greet her. Lee stopped his
.low of angry denunciation of everyjody
and everything In general and
iooked around shamefully.
"We had better get away from hero,"
Maurice said, trying to cover up Lee's
"1 am sorry for Leo." Violet said.
'I hadn't any idea he was such a poor
sport. I admire a goad loser."
Maurice did not speak again until
they were well away from the ball
"I would not have had you hear Lee
make that mistake for the world." he
;uid. when he did speak. "He is really
i good sort?cae oi the be3t friends a
man could bate."
"Yes; he makes a very good friead
?one caa overlook shortcomings In a
:riend, but I pity the woman who married
him. tor there are so many losses
icd disappointments in life and I azn
if raid Lee won't take them In the
spirit he should."
That started Maurice's heart flutter:ng.
"Why?I thought?" he began, but
Fiolet interrupted him.
"You thought what:'" she asked.
"That there was something between
vou and Lee. You said "
"What did I ever say tha would
nake yon think like that?*'
"You remember at the dog show
what you said about thoroughbreds?
nen and dogs. Well. Lee is from' an
?ld family, a thoroughbred in the true
sense of the word."
"That ia where I disagree with you,"
die broke in. "A clear brain and head
and clean habits make the thoroughtared
man. Family does not count at
ill. If he is lacking in these qualities."
"But Lee is most of that," Maurice
"I'll admit It, but I'm not at all Interested
in Lee. There is some one in
interests me xar more.
"Le's go some place where we can
talk it over." he lanshed as she linked

What are the secrets -of individual
health and of the increase of vital
force and resistance?
Scientists differ in their opinions
and doctors disagree in their verdict,
but ail agree that of the many preventive
measures, none are of such impotance
as exercise and moderation.
Moderation in the exercise of all
bodily functions is absolutely necessary
for the increase of vital resistance
and the prevention of disease.
Bathing and the care of the skin io
important and tends to increase vitality.

cleanliness and sanitary purposes, cool
and cold baths as well as a daily sponging

Proper breathing exercises at stated
Intervals and in the open air tend to increase

Benjamin Franklin a century ago,
wrote "People who lire in the forests,
in open barns or with open windows
do not catch cold and the disease
called a 'cold' is generally caused by
impure air, lack of exercise or overeating."
J. J. writes: "Okm just turning forty
