#, # I 4 ». k 4* t£opqriqhV bq Kalhle ^if Norris. Richard Carter had called the place "Crownlands," not to please himself, or even his wife. But It was to his mother's nèwly born family pride that the Idea of being the Carters of Crownlands made Its appeal. The es tate, when he bought It, had belonged to a Carter, and the tradition was that two hundred years before It had been a grant of the first George to the first of the name In America. Madame Carter, as the old lady liked to be caflfed, Immediately adopted the un known owner Into a vague cousinship, spoke of him as "a kinsman of ours," and proceeded to tell old friends that Qrownlands had always been "In the family." It was a home of creamy brick, co lonial In design, and set In splendid lawns and great trees on the bank of the blue Hudson. White driveways circled It, great stables and garages across a curve of green meadows had their own Invisible domain, and on the shining highway there was a full mile of high brick fence, a marching line of S t maples and sycamores, and a ure lodge beside the mighty Iron gates. On one of the wide benches that were placed here and there on the de scending terraces, In the late hours of an exquisite summer afternoon, Isa belle Carter had seated herself, and Anthony Pope, her cavalier, had thrown himself on the steps at her feet. She was a woman worthy of the ex quisite setting, and might well have turned an older head than that of the boy beside her. Brunette, with smooth cheeks deeply touched with rose, black eyes, and a warmly crimson mouth that could be at once provocative and relentless, she glowed like a flower herself in the sweet and enervating heat of the summer's first warm day. She was the tiniest of women, and the little foot, that, In Its transparent silk stocking and buckled slipper, was close to Anthony's hand, was like a child's. The man was twice her size, and as dark as she, earnest, eager, and today with a troubled expression clouding his face. It was to banish that look, If she might, that Isabelle had delib erately stopped him here. She had been behaving badly toward him, and In her rather Irresponsible and shallow way she was sorry for It, Isabelle was a famous flirt, her hus m r* * 2 $ 24 Mill , is to r* & ■ c » I a 1$ 4. Isabelle Was a Famoua Flirt, Her Huaband Knew It, Everyone Knew t band knew it, everyone knew Tigere was always some man paying desperate court to her, and always halfTa-dozen other men who were eager to be In hls place. Isabelle lived for this, went from one adven ture to another with the naive confi dence of a woman whose husband smiles upon her playing, and whose position is Impregnable.. But this boy, this Anthony, was dif ferent. In the first place he was young—but twenty-six. In the second place he was, or had been, her own son's closest friend. Ward Carter was twenty-two, and hls mother nineteen years older. Anthony was young, and he was ab surd, but he did not know it, and Isa belle began to feel the difficulty of keeping the whole world from discov ering it before he did. He made no se cret of hls passion. He came straight to her In any company; he never looked at anybody else. To her daughter NlAa, seventeen years qld, blf attitude was almost paternal; he Ignored Ward as if their friendship Isabelle saw that she had made own affair at the very beginning. Tony was not like the older men, willing to play the game with just a little scorch ing of fingers. Appearances meant nothing to Tony, and she had let the play go too far now to convince him that she did not return something of his feeling. She looked down at him now, con tent to be alone with her and at her feet, and a hundred mixed emotions stirred her. His feeling for her was not only pitiable and absurd in him, but It was rapidly reaching the point when It would make her absurd and Nina, instinctively pitiable, too. scenting the affair, had already ex pressed herself as "hating that idiot Ward had scowled, of late, at the mere mention of Tony's name. Even her husband, the patient Richard, seeing the youth ensconce himself firmly be side her In the limousine, had had aside his mild comment : "Is this young man a fixture In our family, dear?" "You should be playing tennis, Tony," said Isabelle. "Tennis !" A look of distaste crossed Anthony's face. "Please—Cherie!" he begged. There was a silence brimming with sweetness and color. Tony laid his hand against her knee, groped until her own warm, smooth fingers were In his own. "Does Mr. Carter play golf tomor row?" he asked, presently. ,"I suppose sol" "And you—what do you do?" "Oh, I have a full day ! People to lunch, friends of Madame Carter—" The boy laughed triumphantly. "I knew you'd say that!" he said. "Now, I'll tell you about tomorrow. You and I are going to slip away, at about one o'clock, and go off In the gray car. We'U go up to—well, some where, and we'll have our lunch under the trees. We'll be back at about four, tot the tea callers, and they may have you until I come back for dinner. After dinner we'll walk on the terrace —as we did two wonderful, wonderful nights ago, and perhaps—" His voice hod fallen to a rich and tender note, his eyes were rapt. "Perhaps," he said, "Just before we go In, at the end of the terrace, you'll look up at the stars again—" "Tony !" Isabelle Interrupted, her face brilliant with color. "My dear boy—my dear boy, think where this is going to end. In all reason—In all reason—" "Isabelle, what In God's name has reason to do with It!" He knelt be fore her, and caught her hands, and Isabelle had a terrified fear that Ward, or Nina, or any one else, might start up or down the terrace steps and see him. "The Instant you realize what you and I are to each other, my darling," he said, "you begin to talk of reason. Love isn't reason, Cherie. It's the divlnest unreason In the world ! Cherie, there's never been another woman for me; there never will be ! I can't live' without you ; I don't want to! You're frightened now, you don't know how we can manage It. But I'll find the way. The only thing that matters Is that you must belong to me—you shall belong to me —as I to you In every fiber of my be Ing "Tony—for Heaven's sake—1" Isa belle was In an agony. Somebody was approaching. He had gotten to hls feet, and was gloomily staring at the river, when Nina Carter, followed by a great white Russian hound, came flying down the steps. "Mother—" Nina, a tall, overgrown girl, with spectacles on her straight nose, and straight; light-brown hair In thick braids, stopped short and gave her mother's companion a look of withering distaste. "Mother," she be gan again, "aren't you coming up for tea?" "Ask Betty Allen to pour, said Mrs. Carter, regaining her composure rapidly, and assuming the air of host ess at once. "Betty wont home for a tub," Nina explained. "She's coming back. But, Mother," she added, with a faintly re proachful and whining Intonation, "really, you ought to be there—'' Mrs. Carter knew this as well as But she found the child èx Nina. tremely trying In this puritanical mood. Granting that this affair with Tony did her, Isabelle, small credit, at least It was not for Nina to sit In judgment. Rebellious, Isabelle fondled the loving nose of the hound with a small, brown, jeweled hand, and glanced dubiously at Tony's uncom promising back. "Trot bacK, Nina, love," said she. to her daughter, cheerfully, "and ask Miss Harriet to come out and pour. I'll be there directly. We'll come right up. Run along I" To Nina, In this Ignomlnops dismis sal, there was sweet.

R 08 ENAU, Harvard, University Medical School, Boston, Mass. VERY community haB the right to demand that Its fathers and mothers and Its potential fathera and mothers bring healthy children Into the : world. By healthy children we mean first of all, that the fathers and mothers shall have healthy, clean bodies. No man or woman Is fit to be n father mother who neglects his or her own body, or who by carelessness or wilful Indulgence subjects the body to diseases that might be avoided. Secondly, the community has a right to demand that the child have u comfortable home. This does not necessarily mean that the child be born "with a silver spoon In his mouth," or even that he have all of the ordinary comforts of a middle-class home. Many a humble cottage is more comfortable in the real sense of the word than a gilded palace could be. By fortable home we mean something more than furniture and furnishings. We that atmosphere of comfort and love that goes to make up an ideal a com mean home and which makes the home, no matter whether there be four walls or not. In the third place, the community has a right to demand that the child has proper prenatal care, that the mother be properly attended, and that the whole question of the bringing Into the world of the baby be carefully sidered from the most reliable, trustworthy and scientific points of view. Finally, a community has a right to demand that at birth the mother be properly attended and that adequate medical care be provided to prevent the many evil consequences that follow In the wake of improper care of the child at birth. Needless to say, the child himself would hayc a right to demand all these things If he could make these demands vocal before birth. Since the child cannot voice his demands, the community must do it for him. The health of the community depends upon the health of Its children.
