FIRST IN THE NEWS-TIMES At Wheelock's Adele Garrison's New REVELATI0NS0F A WIFE "THEIR SECOND HONEYMOON" WILYT MADGE FOUND BY ACCI DENT. Which room should I give the guest whom Dicky had telephoned he was bringing from the city with him to dine and spend the nl.vt? This was the question which per plexed me as I mounted the stairs to the second floor after concluding the arrangements for the dinner with Katie. The room of my mother-in-law who was in the south with her daughter and grandchild was of course in readiness I would only need a little dusting, fresh linen and a vase of, flowers. Rut I had not heard from Dicky's mother for nearly a week and she had had plenty of time since the date of her epistel to start for and be almost home. She was given to little surprises like that, and I had a very vivid recollection of the last time she sur prised us; when Harry Underwood, whom she detested, was occupying her room. It had taken most adroit work upon the part of all four of us. Harry, Lillian, Dicky and me, to get his belongings out of the room and keep her from suspecting that It had been profaned by his pres ence. I would not risk the repeti tion of that dilemma. Of the two possible room remain ing mine and Dicky's that of my husband was Infinitely the more de sirable. It was the largest room on the second floor, with windows at the front overlooking the lawn, while the side windows gave a won derful view of rolling woodland. Dicky had fitted it up with artistic taste as a studio sitting room, his simple bedroom fixtures being hid den behind a wonderful Chinese screen reaching almost from the ceiling to the floor. I decided to re move Dicky's toilet things and cloth ing to my room for the night and to put the room in order for the ex pected guest. .Some Hasty Prop rat Ions. I drew a long, dismayed breath as I stepped into the room, for Dicky' things were strewn everywhere. I had no reason for surprise. Dicky has no bump of order at all, and almost every morning I have to pick up his things and put them away before Katie does the morning chamber work. When Dicky's mother is with us, she always re lieves me of the duty. I early found 'Ut that she not only enjoyed caring for her son's belongings, but resent ed the intrusion of any one else, even his wife I had almost written especially his wife Into the sanc tuary. Rut there was now no mother-in-law to tidy the room, so I set about the task systematically. Dicky has a habit of leaving his letters and papers wherever he happens to drop them, and then he Is most In dignant If in the picking up process anything happens to bo disturbed. I solved the problem In the early days of our married lifo by pro curing a large pasteboard box in which each day I put every loose paper I find in his room. Then when Dicky Is especially pood na tured I Induce him to sort the con tents of the box, put the things he wishes to preserve .away and make a fresh start. Fortunately Katie had given the room its thorough weekly cleaning but a day or two before, so I knew that a few minutes' work with a carpet sweppr, a polishing mop and a dust cloth would make every thing Immaculate. I had very definite ideas about guests and their treatment. From my earliest childhood I had ab sorbed the Idea from my mother that guests, even for over night, should have bureau drawers vacated for their use, plenty of vacant hooks In the closet, late magazines and books, together with writing mater ials upon the table and fresh flowers to welcome them. So I gathered up the loose pipers and put them In th bor. afterward earning it to a closrt In the hall until the guest should be- gone, cleared several hooks In Dicky's closet, removing the clothing I took away to my own room, and starts to open a drawer of Dicky's chif fonier that I might make it ready for the use of the guest, even though I knew in nil probability a man coming for but one night would make no use of It. A Kodak Picture. With my hand upon the drawer T paused, startled by a curious feel ing. It was as if a hand were laid upon mine pushing the drawer shut instead of opening It. I have learned to pay respectful attention to these uncanny presenti ments of mine. Almost invariably when one of them comes to me. some startling, usually unpleasant experience follows. Rut the un emotional, practical side of me. which is always at war with the mystical strain In my nature, gen erally forces me to disregard the warnings I had a long, mental struggle, however, before T finally plucked up courage to open the drawer. When T had done sx I tossed a little mock ing laugh toward my own supersti tion. The contents of the drawer wore most innocuous, discarded tics. clean and soiled handkerchisfe lumbied together, picture postal cards, which Dicky was always re ceiving it has always seemed to me tint he knew more travelers, than anyone else Mils, letters with the "mm of various magazines cn OF WOMEN them. It was evidently Dicky's Junk drawer. I gathered the heterogeneous col lection together, and dropped them as If something had stung me. A kodak picture stared up at me with Dicky standing in a mock he roic attitude against a studio back ground, while two remarkably pretty girls knelt in front of him with uplifted faces which wore ex pression evidently intended to be reverential. but through which laughter struggled.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Feb. 10. Efforts of the democratic minority in the house of the Indiana legisla ture to get sufficient republicans to lnsurgc against the commisison highway bill are doomed for failure, according to republican leaders. The fight will be made to amend the bill to provide that the counties share in the distribution of more than $1, 250,000 o automobile license fe3S instead of the state receiving the fund and applying it to the construc tion and roads of the state highway system. The funds heretofore have been apportioned among the coun ties. The bill comes up for second reading . this week. Republican members today said that the demo cratic members have been sounding out the sentiment of the republic ans on the highway commission bills. The former declared that the opposition to It was stronger two weeks ago than it is today, claiming many of the majority members have? heard frcm home that their con stituents are satisfied to give the proposed law a trial and to de termine whether the main market highways are Improved. Would Incrca Fees. The roads committee of the hous has under consideration the Dean automobile license fund bill, which provides for 2." per cent Increase in the present fees, and likely will rec ommend amendments. All the mem bers are not satisfied with the pro visions concerning motor trucks. They say trucks do much damage to the roads. Some of the members of the committee also favor Inserting rider to the bill that would require mirrors being placed beside fhe driver's reat so that the driver could see what Is on the road be hind him. and be required to give part of the road to allow automo biles behind him to pass, under heavy penalty for failure to do so. The committee on criminal code will consider an amendment to the bill providing that red lights be burning cn the rear of all vehicles which are driven on highways after sundown. Some cf the members of the committee favor the bill as it stand, but others do not believe how-drawn vehicles should be in eluded, The latter will propose the amendment.
