from all about her is due largely to an
exquisite refinement in her toilette. The

While the fragrance is never obtru

Married Lifers Troubles
They Buy a Corner China Closet and Helen Attempts to
Refinish It.
BY MABEL HE RBERT UENER
J ( "iTX. EAR, the china closet has come
and It's wonderful . . . Yes,
ust now the men just left
It fits In that Oh, what is the mat
ter with this phone!" and Helen sharp
ly shook the receiver hook. "Central!
Central, CAN'T you give me a better
connection?"
But the wires were crossed and It
was several minutes before the buzzing
ceased and Warren's voice came clearly
in an impatient "Hello."
"Hello! Oh. it fits in that corner
perfectly not an inch to spare. And
there's no question about it being an
old one! If only it didn't have that
high polish! Dear, couldn't I rub it
down in some way? . . . No, no; that
would make it cost us more! No, I
want to do it myself If I only knew
what they use!" . . .
When Helen hurried back to the din
ing room Nora was up on the kitchen
stepladder chair wiping off the top
shelf of the new china closet
"Nora, Mr. Curtis says we'll spoil it
If we try to rub it down," regretfully.
"He says it takes a man who under
stands it"
But Nora, who could not see why any
one would prefer a dull finish to a nice
shiny one, was not sympathetic
It was an old Sheraton cabinet with
quaint diamond-paned doors, and Helen
was convinced that it was worth much
more than the seventy dollars she had
paid. She had bought it on the last
day of a "retiring from business sale"
shop, and so had to take it as it 'was,
with one small pane broken and that
hideous high polish.
How could any one so desecrate a
' beautiful old piece by varnishing it
up like that? The more she looked at
it the more that high polish grated
on her.
Arranging the China.
"Now, ma'am, the shelves are all
washed!' 'announced Nora.
Then came the fascinating work of
arranging the china. Underneath each
shelf Helen screwed a row of hooks
for the coffee, tea and bouillon cups.
The plates and meat platters she stood
up in the back.
It looked like an illusion in her book
of old English furniture, she thought
proudly, as she stood back to view it
Ever since they were married she had
wanted a china closet but she wanted
an antique. And this was the first one
she had seen at a moderate price.
"Nora, I believe we can rub that
down," determinedly.
The next moment Helen was looking
up antique shops in the telephone book.
She called up a dealer who, very gen
erously told her what to do. Fine pow
dered pumicestone and crude oil rub
with the grain of the wood. That was
all
Gleefully she ran back to Nora, who

Burleson Favors Government Ownership
Says Telegraph and Tele-j
phone Lines Should e
Acquired.
WASHINGTON, D. C Dec. 18. A
sweeping declaration in favor
of the principle of .government
ownership of telephone and telegraph
lines and an assertion that the postal
service now is self-supporting for the
first time since 1SS3, are features or.
the annual report of postmaster gen
eral Burleson, transmitted to congress.
Concerning the acquisition of tele
Dhone and telegraph lines, postmaster
general Burleson says that the govern
ment has demonstrated its capacity to
conduct public utilities, and, from his
information, he is inclined clearly to
the taking over by the postoffice de
partment of the telegraph lines ana,
possibly, also, of the telephone lines.
The postmaster general says:
"A study of the constitutional pur
poses of the postal establishment leads
to the conviction that the postoffice
department should have control over
all means of the communication or
intelligence. The first telegraph line
in thiss country was maintained
and
the drawers which divided the upper
and lower cupboards.
"Be careful, ma'am, I wouldn t rub
too hard," warned Nora.
"Oh. this pumice is so fine it can t
hurt it," reassuringly.
But this time, when she wiped off
the paste she was horrified to find
she had rubbed' through both the vaf
nish and stain to the bare, light wood.
Nora gave a little cry of dismay,
and Helen stared at the bare spot with
a sick beating of her heart Hadshe
ruined it?
Makes It Worse.
"Go back to that paint store," ex
citedly, "say we rubbed too hard and
took off the varnish, and that we want
some mahogany stain or maybe he
can suggest something better. Quickly
as you can."
Nora returned with a small can or
mahogany stain. But when Helen
hmohui nver the hare snot it stood out
I in a crude reddish shade very different
J from the rich, dark mahogany ot the
I china closet

dealer to whom she had telephoned
la8t- ,, . -
Tho rtMwrs ware small and rora
cquIA easily carry down both; so very
lightly she rubbed down the other one
to the desired uuii iimsn.
"Now Nora, I want you to explain
fhio wrv carefullv. Tell him I'm go
ing to rub down the whole piece like-j
this, and I wnt him to restain ana
'do over the drawer In exactly this
finish. Ask him "What he'll cnarge
but whatever it' le you'll. have to leave
It And say we must have It tomor
row." When Nora had- gone, Helen went
to work on the rest of the closet, and
after an hour's very careful and very
light rubbing the piece was trans
formed. But the Joy she would have
taken in this task was spoiled by the
thought of the drawers.
What excuse could she give Warren
for having sent them away? She could
think of nothing better than to say
she was having the locks fixed.
If only she could tell him the truth!
But since he had warned her to leave
it alone, he would storm out at her
and claim she had ruined it
"What did he say?" eagerly, when
Nora finally came back. "Can he. fix
It?"
Fears IVarrcn'js Censure.
"He said he'd try. ma'am, but that
he couldn't end It to yon before Sat- f
urday. He has to put on tnree coats
and give 'em time to dry."
Saturday! The china closet would be
disfigured until Saturday!
She was positive that Warren's first
question would be "Where's the draw
ers?" And she carefully rehearsed her
answer.
But when a little after six she heard
him come in. her heart beat guiltily.
"Well, how's the .china closet?" was
his greeting as he strode straight into
the diniag room.
"Oh I think it's wonderfulIT trying
to hide her nervousness. "Look how
perfectly it fits In that corner! Don't
you love tnat topr aho tne legs oa. i
I m wild about those legs: wait I'll
show you a cut in that book of Eng
lish furniture almost exactly like It"
Helen ran into the library and came
back with the book, nervously turn
ing the page& Why didn't he ask
about the drawers?
"There were no keys for the draw
ers, so I sent them out to have them
fitted," she volunteered, disconcerted at
his silence.
"Um-m," grunted Warren noncom
mittally. r
"Here it is." giving him the book
and pointing to the illustration. "You
see the lines are just the same those
same legs and the same shaped top.
And look what it says, 'A very fine
specimen of an original Sheraton cab
inet now in the possession of the Hon.
S. W. Partridge.'
"Um-m," with a keen scrutiny over
the dull finish of the mahogany. "So
you rubbed it down," did you?"
"Didnt it come ont beautifully?"
hopefully. "Oh, if you'd only seen that
awful glazy polish?"
"What'd you use?"
"Just a little crude oil and powdered
pumicestone. I called up one of the
dealers and he told me how to do
it"
"Um-m. Ought to have done your
experimenting on a place where it
"""'' tof- " . charge
vii as mnnfa u
you as much to do over those, drawers
as they would to have rubbed down
the whole -piece.
Helena gasped. "But dear" she
began feebly.
"Oh. cut It! Those drawers haven't
any locks," running his finger along
the upper drawer ledge. "Nothing to
lock into. If you've got to lie, for
heaven's sake tell one that'll hold
