Po you know how to make a rented
room took homelike?
A friend of mine who ha* lived a
wandering life for some yen re. nioying
? from one rented room to another, has
' reached such perfection in the tine nr'
I c>f living not too desolately in routed
| rooms that 1 feel I ought to share her
j methods with my readers.
| Three Thing's She Carries With Her
Of course many of you have never
lived in rented rooms and never ex
pect to. but one can never tell what
one may be called upon to do. And
thousands of young people In every
city must be living away from home in
rented rooms.
My friend moves often so that it is
not possible for her to carry many
bulky accessories. Of course anyone
can make a room lo"k pleasant by car
rying enough things but her art is that
she carries very little anil does not
spend much money. _
Three things she always does carry.
One Is a small shaded light with enough
length of cord so that it can l>e placed
anywhere in the room. This she con
siders absolutely essential, as no room
can look other titan dismal with only
| high lighting. She also i\arrios her own
pufT which flung over tlio foot of the
hod adds a lovely touch of color and
makes her independent of Insufficient
or unsatisfactory bed cloth.tig. The
third article Is a pretty cretonne cover
for her trunk which thereby often be
comes a window seat. The shade of the
lamp, the puff, and the cretonne rover
should be In thu same tones, of course.
As she thinks yellow brightens a
room more than any other color tha' Is
tho basis of Iot color scheme.
She Seldom Spends a Dollar
Tho things ah" buys are these: < 'or
yellow desk Mutter Tor the desk. or the
table whk'h she asks for If there is no
desk. One howl, for fruit, of u good
design and color which she says can be
t'lckcd up for ten cents. (The lust time
I saw her room she hti-l a moat artistic
"ii" of ftht/cd liro.cn jittery). one
bowl for flowers or green stuff of sim
ilar cost, t-fiiiie yellow tissue paper out
of which she fashions simple shade* for
the wall lights.
She Is a person of great nrtistie per
ception and appreciation so she takes
down most of the pictures thnt she tinds
in the rooms she rents. In place of
?he.?o she puts two or three of the benu
tiful reproductions that the magazines
iitol the Sunday supplements supply us
with nowadays. She mounts these on
some simple cardboard?mount of her
own devising, and fastens them on the
wall, changing them from time to time.
Sometimes, when she in to be for sev
eral weeks at any place she has a few
bulbs growing in another of the Inex
pensive artistic bowls.
The Finest Ornament Of All
If there is a mantel, a cover o(
quaint Ui'slRti and beautiful coloring,
which she always carries wl'h her, the
bowl for flowers, her traveling clock
ami peril.ips cm of those wonderful ten
relit candlesticks make it attractive.
To these Mtnple ornament* within tho
reach of all she adds one mote, equally
possible for any olio to have?tho orna
ment of perfect Imm.ii iilntenesn and or
And the result Is mat the simplest

bitable when she lives In it. I>o you

100 True Detective Stories
Copyright. 1921. by The Wheeler Newspaper Syndicate.
Herman thethods In dealing with the
psychology of foreign nations during
the period of the World war were doubt
less at fault In the great majority of
cases, luit there was at least one inci
dent In which two operatives of the
1 nlted States secret service played a
leading role that proved ati exception
to the rule. This was the case of the
little barkentlne Retriever and the way
In which It came within an ar-o of be
ing used to carry munitions of war to
the raiders attached to the Imperial
navy, prior to the entrance of the
United States into the conflict.
10ven in the outer circles of police
Jurisdiction in New York it was no
secret that the Hermans were planning
to supply food anil coal to the various
ships whi< h wche harassing nllied ship
ping on tho high seas, and that they
were working toward this purpose un
der the theoretical protection of the
flag of a friendly nation. Ever since^
the third day of the war when the
Remind, loaded to the gunwales with
food and coal, set sail ostensibly for
liuenos Aires. Captain Roy-Ed and the
other Teutonic agents kept themselves
huffy with plans for outwitting the
American authorities. 'Several of the
relief expeditions were entirely success
ful. and If It had not been for the sup
piles smuggled out in this manner it Is
doubtful If the Emden and tho other
raiders could have continued their
depredations for more than a few weeks.
Rut, as tlm? went on. the long arm of
the secret service closed more closely
around tho Gorman headquarters and
tho machinery of the American detec
tive bureaus began to function more
efficiently, tine after another several
of the sh.ps which Von Bernstorff and
Von Unpen intended to carry supplies
to previously designated points were
"held In port" on orders from Wash
ington. and the situation, at least from
the ij.rman point of view, began to lie
distinctly alarming.
Then, late one night, came n long
distance phono call from Washington to
the New York office of the service?a
rnll which, in effect, stated that in
formation bad been received that tho
German agents were plurmlng a coup
along a somewhat different line. The
; object was To be the same, but the
! methods had been altered
| "Find nut wi.nt they're up to and nail
the ship," carnn the directions from the
Washington er.d of tbc line "We haven't
any details here, nave that something
Is well under way and that the whole
thing is being engineered from Now
York. If necessary. search every boat
In the harbor and see that not one of
th"ni clears without papers which are
fully repn-sentattive of her cargo.-'
"Kine way to turn a nmn loose on a
Job," growled Donahue, one of the
secret service operatives assigned to
the case. "Somebody's llllcd the Wash
liiKton office full of a pipe dream and
now we've got to prove it."
"Yes," added Marston. his partner,
"arid they're so delightfully vague as to I
the'.r details. "Something is undet; I
way.' That's all we get?hut if we
don't find out what thnt "sonv tiling' is j
we'll he looking for a new . oss next ?
pay day."
itut as both Donahue and Marston
discovered when they began active work I
loss than ten mlutes after the receiver I
had clicked into place at the Washing- j
ton end <?f the long distance line, |
"something" was under way. The man j
who had been planted In a position to
obtain the confidence of the German I
colony all had wind of It but. beyond '
the fact that It was to be a sensational |
attempt to defeat the neutrality rogula- i
tlons and carry conl to the raiding fleet, !
they were unable to say what It was. j
In vain Donahue haunted the docks
while Marston prowled around up-town, j
trying to pick up some thread which |
would lead him to the solution of the |
my.stery, und other men front the New j
York office shadowed the pro-German I
sympathisers, while the pick of Inspec
tor Tunncy's "bomb squad" kept their {
eyes open for suspicious circumstances.
Whatever the German's plans were,they
were well covered and the passage of j
every hour brought with it the fear'
that the scheme miight have been sue- j
cessfully matured. I
As was only natural. Ponabtio though! I
of nothing but ships. Ho ate them, j
drank them, dreamed them?they filled |
every moment of his time, awake or <
asleep. As fast as the editions of the |
dally pjpers chased themselves from |
the press, he grabbed then* to sec if,
something had developed elsewhere [
which would give him the lead he was j
seeking. Itut. beyond the usual news
front the front, the details of various
diplomatic conferences and scores of
rumors Irom abroad, he could find noth
Klowiy, however, there began to filter
into his mind the feeling that* perhaps
the solution to the entire mystery had
been staring him in the face for days.
About a week before bo remembered
ha\ir .seen a headline over a small
news item which read "Will Stage Movie
at Sea." Then there had been a longer
st<t*y, dealing with this latest etep in
motion-picture production. A thhird
had told of the preparations which were
being made and a fourth had dilated
upon the fact that this particular pic
ture was to cost $250,000 for the single ' '
scene of the wreck at sea.
"The bark Retriever," this article had
stated, "has been bought outright for
this purpose and will sail within a fefc'
days for the coast of Maine, where the
wreck will be staged." '
"If I'm right," muttered/Donahue,
"this Is something new In Gbrman di
plomacy. Usually they try either to
bull things through or to cloak them in
so much mystery that they cant be dis
covered. Rut here's a plan as jtain as
the Woolworth Tower, a palpable press
agent story which the papers are play- '
Ing up In a way which Is certain to
divert suspicion. Maybe Berlin has dis
ccfVered at last that the most obvious
method Is the one least likely to be
Then, after getting In touch with
Marston and admitting that his Idea '
might lie nothing more than the wildest
? of wild-goose chases, Donahue and his
partner arranged to visit the dock where
the Retriever was tied up tiiat evening.
I A brief reconnolter showed them that
considerable secrecy was being prac
I ticcd on board the boat, presumably for
| the purpose of throwing the other mo
I tlon picture companies off the scent.
but the two operatives managed to worm
, their way aboard and a sentence or two ,
In guttural German from between decks
| rfiowed them that they were on the
! right track.
Within the hour a squad of Govern
ment operatives had surrounded the Re
triever and Donahue, the first to visit
her hold, made a brief verbal report that
1 cleared up the entire hffalr. ?
"She's loaded with coal and food." he
: called up. "Got enough to run her to
[ Kurope, much less to Maine?but you
I never can tell what they're goin' to do
I In the movies.'
| Nevertheless, the Retriever did not
j set sail and, as Washington learned a
' day or two later, the entire "daylight
! plot collapsed with her capture, thanks
I to Operative Donahues ability to look
I below the surface of things.

I There never was a pleasant or Christ-1
max custom, I think, than the custom)
| of sending; Christinas grrectlnps to one'sj
And there never was a custom more)
The sending of- some simple attrac
tl\o card to say In effect, "I am think-1
ins- of you today because I always think i
of those I lovo on Christmas and wish'
them haj/plnees." Is a Irue manifesta
tion of the Christmas spirit
But the business-like f-en.iinjr out of
hug* numbers of cards, ths worry lest I
3 on will overlook someonn who Is irolnc'
to send you ft card, the anxious study to,
' get cards that look as expensive fo?
the money ns possible, the consideration j
i as to whether t?> send this or that per
I son a h\o or a ten, or a two for Ave.
i nil make the custom Into a travesty on
J the Christmas spirit, a true manifesta
tion of the commercial exchange spirit,
which has driven the spirit of Christ
mas out- of ro many hearts.
Ths Christmas Card Custom
Tn many lives, card sending Is a snow
ball which rolls itself bigger and big
ger aj the .sender gathers new friends
every year.
I suppose the only way to prevent'
this Is to blue pencil your list pretty;
severely, to keep It down to those to>
whom you truly want to say "I am;
thinking "f you today." Then don't let'
yourself be fretted if you do got cards'
from some- people to whom you didn't'
send tlit-m. It really isn't a serious nuit;
ler, you know. It only seems so bo-'
cause It Is day after Christmas and;
you are looking over your cards In the
mood of let-downness and reaction
shich makes any little annoyance or
mistake or dimppointment loom ail out
of proportion
Another way to help the situation is
to get your Christmas cards bought and
written early. It is twice aj easy to j
buy them If you start before the crowd
comes aiul the stock has been depicted. |
Ar.d If you write them in your spare1
evenings before tho last crowded week j
or two. you will be nbio to put real i
friendship into your messages. '
You notice I speak of picking out me
cards as if that wore a matter requlr-'
ing considerable thought. I am aware
that many people have a simpler solu
tion. They select ono card with a con-'
ventional greeting covering any friend
or acquaintance, and have thelV names
printed or engraved upon it Then all
they have to do it to address the en
Doubtless you will think me old
fashioned but I have never yet been
reconciled to that custom. Thoy are all
right for acquaintances or .business
friends but they always seem to me al
most rude to send to a real friend. A
formal card with a sender's name writ
ten in his or her own handwriting Is
little enough trouble to take, but when
the name is merely engraved or printed
it certainly seems like a canned greet
ing. All that Is left now is for some
enterprising firm to offer to take.lists
of names and send the cards out with
out any bother to the sender.
To me the Ideal Christmas greeting
is a Christmas letter, but of course one
cannot send many of those. Next comes
the Christinas card with some printed '
sentiment < n It that makes one foel it
has really been chosen for oneself, and
at least the sender's name and perhaps
a few words of greeting. A single line
of greeting gives It a human warmth
that it cannot get otherwise. A card
with the sender's name and greeting en
graved always seems to me like a very
tine looking hearth with a lire neatly
laid upon It?-I'Ut not lit.
