Br HELEN CLARK (Copyright, 1818, by the McClure Newspa per Syndicate.) "On your way home stop at Dobbs’ —get some flowers—orchids—some thing with a heart throb in ’em—ten dollars or so—the kind of thing you'd pick yourself for the girl you were in love with.” The first time Bowden Pain recelvea instructions from old Air. Clark, presi dent of the large concern for which he was cashier, he felt a little like say ing: “Who do you think I am? Your valet?” But he found the task of se lecting flowers at Dobbs’ so diverting that the next time a similar order came to select the flowers that Air. Clark wished to have sent to his wife as indi cation of his own personal thought and affection, he greeted the task with keen interest, and put so much heart into the selection that old Air. Clark felt the beneficial results in his good wife’s disposition for u week to come. At tlie end of the week lie again requested Air. Pain to order flowers “with a heart throb in ’em.” And Pain outdid him self by ordering a basket of pink roses and blue larkspur that actually caused tlie dry-eyed Airs. Clark to melt into tears. It was on that night that Bow- i den first saw Martha Jenks. He was particularly disarmed, for I following Air. Clark’s Instructions, ho had put himself in the mood of the young man in love with someone. He was exposed in a most vulnerable point. He was not in love, but he was in a lover’s mood, and when Martha appeared and he heard that: indefinable little swish and perceived the almost negligible scent of perfume that in his mind was associated with women of “real class” he promptly succumbed. He heard her order six small bou quets of lilies of tlie valley suitable for favors at a luncheon the next day, and took particular pains to attend to her instructions as to where they should lie sent. “The Founders Club, he heard her say, and besides being filled with ad miration for the particular way in which she uttered these words, he was also aware of the fact that she was a member of an exclusive city society— for to be a memhej of the Founders’ club one had not only to be a lineal descendant of one of the Colonial founders of the city, but one had to have considerable money to spend on club dues and otherwise to “keep up” with that organization. Bowden Pain had one thing in his favor at the outset of the pursuit of his ideal. He was a member of “the” Pain family, and although had he ta ken the trouble he might have learned i that the original Hezekiah Pain was ■ twice pilloried for breaking the Sab bath, and enjoyed no higher dlstine- ! tion in the community than that of ' road mender, still he was descended from a founder, and was eligible to the club. Never in his wildest dreams, however, had he thought of seeking membership. First, because of the ex pense that would entail; and second, because the young men and women who belonged to the organization were many rungs higher on the social ladder than he pretended to be. But the idea of belonging first entered his head shortly after he heard the charming Martha mention the name of the club as the address to which the flowers could be sent. And after the coinci dence of meeting her a second time at Dobbs’ florist shop, he wont home to figure out on paper about what the necessary expense of membership would be. The Itemizing ran something as fol lows: “Initiation fee, $200. (Bowden be lieved this to be the sum. He would verify it the next day). Annuul dues .$00.00 Tuxedo suit (for men’s night) .. 60.00 Swallowtail renovated .15.00 Evening clothes accessories.... 10.00 Black shoes.10.00 $355.00 This was no sum to be thrown lightly away. In the veins of Bowden ran the true Yankee blood of the Pains, and even a part of his savings were not to be spent lightly on self-indulgence. He was saving, as he conveniently could, for the as yet indefinite home for an even less definite “family.” But why save for a “family,” Bowden reflected to himself, when the accomplishment of his umbitions along that line might possibly depend on the expenditure of part of the savings? But even after the second vision of Martha at Dobbs’ he might have let his dreams of belonging to the Found ers’ club subside had lie not met the charmer at the bank. He was deposit ing his small weekly savings, und she —fair spender that she was—was rather nonchalantly withdrawing a neat little roll of bills. Bowden saw no less than five ten dollar Dills, presumably her pin money for -a. week^ The thought, of financing a wife of such habits—for Bowden ac tually did think of her as a not Im possible Mrs. Pain—was not the im mediate problem. The immediate problem was financing membership in the Founders’ club. The idea of mar rying a woman who could thus casu ally draw a large bank roll from the teller’s window had no special attrac tion for Bowden. His Yankee inheri tance included the ambition to support his own wife on his own earnings. Still, he did not let that trifle disturb his peace of mind, but went about it in quite a calculating manner the next dny to have his name proposed at the Founders’ club by a friend who be longed. Needless to say, no one op posed Ills admission. He was perfectly eligible, and unattached, good-looking bachelors were at a premium. Then began the really hard part of the mem bership—that of securing an introduc- j tion to Martha. Bowden attended ev- | ery evening function at the club, and as many afternoon ones as he could manage to, without actually giving up his business cnreer. The three hun dred and fifty-five dollars that he had estimated would cover his expenses for the first year of course fell far below the actuality. This did not include tickets to the various benefit entertain ments held at the clubrooms, nor did it include meals and refreshments there, nor tips. And all the time that Bowden was spending his money there were no signs of Martha. One day he dropped in the clubrooms on his way from his office—ns a mat ter of fact to try to recover an um brella he had left there at the last eve ning entertainment. It was dark in the entrance hall where the check boys sat, and it was not until he became ac customed to the subdued light that he recognized Martha sitting there. She was alone, and she was fingering the pages of a small note book. Bowden found It imperative for him to take a seat on the other side of the hall to look over some notes in his own pocket. From time to time he looked up at Martha. She was the same delightful girl und there was llie same air of per fect grooming about her. He would never have noticed the blemish in the grooming, had it not been for her quick effort to cover up the wrists of both her hands at the same time. Then he saw that over each was fastened, and kept in place by a metal paper clip, a large sheet of copy paper, such as his own stenographer used to keep from getting office grime on a fresh blouse. Martha had removed her cuffs in haste, but Bowden caught the movement. Then the check boy, who was at the telephone, spoiled Martha’s little game of pretension. “Here’s a message for Mrs. Snodgrass’ secretary,” he said, und Martha had to take it. In her confusion at doing so she let fall the little notebook that she had been fin gering. Bowden seized It, and on the absurd pretext of wishing to see to whom it belonged, he rend the name of Martha Tuffle. It was absurd that ho did not restore It to her until she had left the clubhouse and he had followed her half a block down the street. “I have seen you before,” he said. And she did not deny that she had also noticed the coincidence of the frequent meeting. “And I thought you belonged to the Founders’ club.” “I pretended I did,” she said, “that first day. I wanted you to think I did, and now you’ll dislike me because I’ve posed to be something I was not.” “And I have been pretending, too,” he said. “I’ve been pretending that I could afford to belong to this club, when I couldn’t. I wanted to know you and I wanted you to think that I had as much money as the other men who belong.” “Then we’re both pretending,” she said. “But if we hadn’t pretended,” he said, “we would never have met.” It seemed as they walked along in the spring dusk, that they had always known each other, and Bowden Pain was already feeling relief at the thought that his annual dues and other incidentals would not have to be paid for next year. He also looked with more specific interest at the objective of his savings. He took the girl be side him into his confidence. “And it is better—and more like the Pains— not to marry a woman with money. You knew from the first how it wus to be?” And Martha’s low answer in the deepening dusk satisfied him. FINDS HER PLAN WORKS WELL Lucinda Has Saved Money Since Aban doning Her System of Buying Things on Impulse. “There are so many things I want to buy,” said Lucinda, “and I am so im pulsive. I see something that pleases my fancy and straightway I buy it; only to find a little later that really I didn’t want it and that now I don’t care for it at all. “At least that is the way I did do; but now I do differently. Now when I see something that once I would have bought on sight I say to myself: ‘Do I really want that?’ and then I say to myself. ‘I will wait a week and see.’ “At first it was very hard for me to do this; but then I got myself under control and came to manage very well. “Often on the second or third day. when 1 have seen that thing still on sale, I have found that I no longer fan cied It and then, of course, I was glad I hadn’t bought it: but then sometimes when I found the thing gone, why, then naturally I imagined I did want it; but on the whole I find this plan to work beautifully and now I stick to it faith fully, and certainly it has saved me from buying a whole lot of things I didn’t want; things such as I used to buy, that Brother Claude, in his brusque way, called junk.” No Rice for Face Powder. Rice is a food, not a frivolity, ac cording to wartime classification. Therefore the French government has prohibited the manufacture of face powder from rice. This is the sad news flashed straight from Paris, that gay city which lias previously led the world in the matter of vanities, as it now leads in the matter of valor. This report declares also that the women of France are flicking away daily on their powder puffs some 100,000 sol diers’ rations of good rice. ■■■'■ ... ■*■-- " 1 &RMHAND WANTS WORK Consider the mechanical farm hand -“it serves you continuously, never grows tired and is always on the-job.
