JEALOUS OF EVA
I By MILDRED WHITE -
Copyright. 1923, Western Newspaper Union.
I could see that Billy Newman was WI
taken with Dora, as all Prescott boys
were. She had come amimng us, with
Miss Theodolra Danvers, properly en
graved on her visiting cards, and
stopped with Mrs. Evans which alone, Ist
was a recommendation. Yet, no womrn- ti
an In our crowd seemed to *take to col
Dora Danvers. Some went so far as kih
to warn their sons against her, as a
blighter. But our P'rescott mothers up
are not to be relied on where their tw
wonderful sons are concerned. Which the
sounds bitter, coming from a young er
woman-and is. of
Ted Lorimer and I would have been bil
married long ago, if his mother did
not regularly take an attack of de- ru
pendent invalidism, the moment the W
suggestion is made, of leaving her G(
despotic rule. But this Is not my fo!
story; the illustration prepares you lBt
for the rest. se
Billy Newman's mother has deter- of
mined that if the worst must come-
in the possibility of his marriage, It it
shall be to Eva Vaughn, whose father ce
made a fortune In oil. di:
So when Billy longs for feminine ne
society, Mrs. Newman gives him Eva. fo
The two did appear to be getting along to
chummily together, when Dora flashed C
on the scene. in
When Billy began to neglect Eva and c
spend his evenings where Dora was, le
his mother reminded him of Dick and I
"A girl like that is neither depend- r
able or honest." she said, "when she l
deceives in one way, she will in an- at
other. A man wants a trustworthy !ju
wife. if he is to have peace or com- m
fort in married life."
I repeated the sentiment to Dora, th
not betraying Mrs. Newman, of course, tr
but putting it as my own. Dora turned n
to me with a pretty puzzled air. J,
"But, Salllie dear." she said, "how is at
one to know a man loves until he tt
tells one so? Shall 1, for instance go qi
around fearfully expecting every pleas- a
ant male to be overcome with my pi
charms? Now, wouldn't," laughed al
Dora, "that be silly."
Eva is awfully sweet and clever. I1
Her cleverness takes Mrs. Newman, f
combined with her manner of defer- tl
ential humility. P
Of late, Eva has constantly been ex- r
hibiting new skill. Billy, through his a
mother, appeared to value these ac- 1
complishments. And, really, I began I
7 to grow anxious-fearing that for the in
r frst time In her life, my favorite Dora
was seriously and hopelessly Interest
Sed In a man. h
5 Eva exhibited a new hat which add- *
1' ed greatly to her attraction. It was n
just the sort of hat she should always
g have worn, but did not. Mrs. New- 11
man explained that Eva had made the
r hat herself, out of a mere scrap of b
straw and silk, just to show Individu

and spoke no word of praise. It was

not like. Petty jealousy in woman is
When I am jealous Its the downright
kind-with reason. And so I thought
-which made me hate myself that
perhaps Billie's mother was a better
judge of character than I--perhaps
Dora Danvers was all for conquest-
brooking no praise of another.
About this time our reading club ofa
fered a prize for the cleverest review
of the year's work. We had most of
us been college students together,
which made t interesting, and brought
back the old exciting debates. Dora
had not been with us a year, so of
course she could not enter the carn
Here I expected Eva's cleverness to
be dimmed-ast school she had been
anything but a bright and shining
lIght-I was wrong. Again, Eva shone
triumphantly. Beside her witty bril
iiance my labored effort was like a
child's crude essay.
The adlence invited to Mrs. Evans'
home for the reading, applauded. And
Mrs. Newman basked in Eva's triumph
as though the engagement she desired
were already a settled thing. When
we crowded up to congratulate Eva.
Dora came with strange reluctance.
In her eyes I fancied a disdainful en
- pression-I regarded her in pained di.
"Why can't you be blg" my disap
pointed self was saying. "Oh, Dora,
why can't yeou be fair" But eo
conmuse, 1 didn't speak. Billie's eyes on
her wonderingly, seemed to say the

Dora turned aside. "You think so?

SNOT REAL RULERS
European Monarchs in the Main
I Writer Points Out That Courtiers and
I Ministers Actually Exercised
Power Accredited to Kings.
Writing in the Prager Tagblatt, a
staff correspondent points out that
times are past when the glory of a
congress consisted in the number of
kings taking part In It.
"The year 1il1 is sometimes looked
upon as the boundary line between
two periods, but long before this date
t the idea had develope~ which no long
er allowed one man to decide the fate
of a nation merely because of his
birth or 'divine right.'" he writes.
I "A proof of this Is that the czar
rule, and the special way in which
Wilhelm II liked to incorporate the
r Gernna kaiser idea, were regarded
/ for years as something exceptional.
1 But did even this system really repre
sent a form of rule In which the will
of the crowne·i head alone governed?
"It is true that nowhere else would
t it have been possible for a great chan
r cellor, like llismarck, to have been
dismissed because his dictatorial man
ner did not please a young prince. nor
for the most efficient of his successors
to have suffered the same fate be
cause he failed to regard the tactless -
Indiscretions of the ruler as the out
come of imperial wisdom.
"But perhaps this personal rule was
less the rule of one person than was
generally believed. Was It not rather
a good opportunity for a crowd of Ir- br
responsible courtiers to satisfy their b
e lust for power in the shadow of the
all-powerful majesty; in peace the
junkers, and in war, the army com
"And when we are told that for
t" three years during the war, the Aus
*. trian senate was not summoned, so as hP
d not to excite the old emperor, Frans
Joseph, with home politics, It is prob- in
Is able that the real reason was rather
e the minister's desire for peace and
:o quietness, who, by pointing out the d(
necessity for the monarch's well being a
y provided for himself uncontrolled and
d undisturbed rule.
"Nowadays in countries where the
r. institution of ruler still exists the of
a, fee rather diminishes than increases
r- the natural power of expansion of a at
personality. Among the kings now at
r. ruling In Europe there are some who t

c- But the most humble member of par- Is
SI liament with a good pair of lungs has
l more Influence than they.
n "It is characteristlec that the office I
K. which in free states substitutes the o0
head of a monarchy, is made to re-al
d- semble that of the crowned ruler by ti
u not having power but being a decora
tive figurehead and that a strong man u
like Poincare after being president
be had first 'to become prime minister to
of bring his political vision to account.
. "King Victor Emmanuel was re-o

Genoa, his speech was listened to
with respect and attention, but when
the incident was over there was much

at He Did That Very Thing.
er One of the pleasures of Rev. Jobh
p German, superintendent of the OG
bault home for boys in Indiana, is to
watch the yomungsters eat when they
first come to the home. Many of them
haven't had a good meal for a long
timn. preceding their arrival at the
er home, and it takes quite a while to
h "get them filled up" so that their ape
Spefites become normal again.
But one little fellow, who arrived a
few weeks ago, didn't seem ablo
to appease his hunger. Every meal
he demanded 15 slices of bread. After
to a time the superlntendent decided
Ssomethlng was wrong and when the
doctor next visited the home had him
look at the youngster.
The examination showed him in a
good condltlon. At its close the doe
tor said to the little fellow: "Why
don't you try leaving the table hun
1d py some day~'7"
p A little pause, sad then back came
the startling answer, "I always do.'"

Victor Hugo's Histoero Funeral.
The largest funeral ever held in
France, and probably the largest In
a the history of the world, was that of
Victor Hugo, the great poet, author
and dramatist, who died in May, 1885,
and was buried in the Pantheon the
first of the following June. At the
head of the funeral procession were
three enormous wagons filled with
floral tributes, among them a huge
diadem of Irish lilies with the Inscrip
tion "To the World's Greatest Poet,"
Ssent by Lord Tennyson, poet-laureate
of England. Telegrams were re

The Kingly Eagle.
Eagles have been known to attack
full-grown sheep and even stags; but
the stories of their carrying off chil
dren should be taken with a grain of
salt, for, like nearly all the creatures
of the wild, the eagle will attack man
only In self-defense. He Is the un
questioned king of birds. There are
many larger and more powerful than
he, but none of them has the courage,
the swiftness or the majestic carriage
of the eagle. Ever since man was man
the eagle has appealed to him as a
creature of romance. Legends and
fables about him abound in all lan
guages. All the world over you will
find the eagle as the symbol of no
bility. The Indian chief wears a head
dress of eagle's feathers as a mark
of his high position.
