"Wo did!" laughed Uncle Wiggily "But the haselnut bush drove him away by showering nuts on his nose" "Well, I might not be so lucky as to have a hazelnut bush to help me," spoke Susie. "So I'd be very glad If you would walk through the wods with me. You can scare away the bear if we meet him."' "How?" aBked Uncle Wiggily "With my red, white apd blue crutch or my umbrella?" "With this popgun, which shoots toothpowder," said Susie. "It belongs to Sammle, my brother, but he let me take it We'll bring the popgun with us, Uncle Wiggily, and scare the bear."

"I can t go to the "Wlbblewobble party this way," cried Susie. "I'll have to go back home to get another dress, and It won't be my new one and oh, dear!" "Perhaps I can wipe off the mud with some leaies and moss," Uncle Wiggily spoke. "I'll try" But the more he rubbed at the mud spots on Susie's dress the worse they looked. "Oh. you can't do It, Uncle Wiggily!" sighed the little rabbit girl. "No. I don't believe I can," Uncle Wiggily admitted, sadly-like and sorry. "Oh, dear'" cried Smle. "Whatever shall I do I can't go to a party look ing like this. I just must have a new dress." Uncle Wiggily thought for a minute. Then, through the woods, he spied a tree with white, shiny bark on, just like satin. "Ha! I know what to do!" he cried "That is a white birch tree. Indian make boats of the ba.-k, and from It I can also make a new dress for you. Susie. Or, at least, a sort of dress, or apron, to go over the dress you have on. and so cover tho mud spots." "Please do!" begged Susie. "I will'" promised Uncle Wiggily, and he did. He stripped off some bark from the birch tree and he sewed the pieces to gether with ribbon grass, and some needles from the pine tree. And when Susie put the bark dress over her par ty one, not a mud spot showed! "Oh, that's fine, Unole WlggUy!" she cried. "Now I can go to the Wlbble wobbles'" And so she went, and the bad bear never came out to so much as growl, nor did the fox. so the popgun was not needed And all the girls at the party thought Susie's dress that Uncle Wig gily had made was Just fine.

SO this was the outcome of her planning, her hopes for a re sumption of the former relations between herself and her friends! Jane understood this, yet she ut tered no further protest to her hus band's verdict. Instead, she went on Into the little room adjoining the large bedroom and proceeded to un dress. She was ready for bed. and had Sut on a warm dressing gown over er nightgown, when her husband appeared at the door of the small room. As she stood there In front of her mirror, braiding her long hair, she looked very childish in the dim light of the one candle on the bu reau. Reeves had not started to undress. While he was still in a bad humor, he was secretly ashamed of the violence or his speech. But he would not apologize. Vaguely, he wished that Jane would reopen the discussion that he might have a chance to Justify him self. But although he remained watching her, she did not speak. He broke the silence by a question. "You understood what I said a while ago" 'res. I understand," his wife re plied. That was all She did not even look at him Ho tried to make her no bo "Parhaps you think Ira hard on you, Jane, but I'm not Many a man would have Been angrier than I was after seeing what I saw tonight." The recolleotlon of hla wife and young Guilford together caused him all at once to feel that his wrath had been Just. But he wanted her to agree that he was right. Haven't you anything to oay?" he Insisted. ., "Kothlng" Her eyes were atlll upon the long braid which she bad brought over her shoulder and waa. plaiting to the very end of the shining tresses. "I said all I had to say. I don't care to talk any more about it please. Augustus. I made my request. You refuse to grant It. That ends the dis cussion, I think " She Doe Xot Argue. "Well, I was right to refuse!" he ex claimed , She did not deny his assertion. In- handwork Is Introduced on frock, blouse and suit, anywhere and every where possible , , The daytime dress of serge, natural linen or taffeta, is rendered doubly be coming by a bit of vivid wool or bead embroidery, and the evening frock, no matter how simple, is a thing of glitter and sparkle. One should not be afraid of oddity, as long aa it is harmonious. The Itctnra of Belts. As girdles and belts or all descrip tions are smart again this year, it will not be a difficult matter to Introduce the requjred bit of color Wide and narrow girdles of ribbon are smart, narrow strap belts of colored suede, soft or vivid, according to the tone of the material, encircle skirt or coat of the sport costume, and the simple serge or linen frock may be girdled as soberly or a, gorgeouslv as Fancy dictates, and Fashion advises Fancy to bo gorgeously inclined. Birds, bees, butterflies, and colored moths are be ing embroidered on frock and blouse, the bluebird being especially favored for light-toned linens and cottons Trlmmlna; tke Small Glrl'n Dreeses. Eipecially ore these bluebirds fav ored for the little girl's white frock. The only thing to bear in mind, when using these motifs, is that the design must be email and the effect dainty.

In his marriage the letter alone was there: the spirit was lacking. He went back into the large room and undressed rapidly, then got Into bed. Five minutes later he wastsnor lng. Not until then did Jane start to go to bed. But as she was half way across tbe room in which her husband slept sae heard a creaking of a board in the upper hall, outside of the open door near which she stood Was Mary Just going upstairs Stepping to the door, she looked out Into the dark hall As "he did bo, a soft whisper attracted her at tention "It's onU -ne," Mary told her, coming close to her, and laying a hand on hers.

No pang; of conscience nor stirrings of pity kept him awake. It was his habit to sleep through an entire night Therefore h would not know whether his wife lay down in this room or in the other. The bed tn the smaller room waa always made up and ready for occu pancy. Jane had seen to this herself Boon after she came here to live Now she went into the little xoom, closing softly the door of communication be tween that and the apartment in which her husband lay. She crept into the single bed with a sigh of relief Here she might toss and turn and think out her problem without feaf of disturbing any one. She was sure she would sleep quietly here. But many hours passed before slumber came to her She was re viewing the events of the evening. Ruth's words, her own promise, and her husband's harsh commands She knew that these last must be followed But how could she bring herself to obey them? For obedience meant the alienation of the friends whom she had hoped to win back to her Although sne did not lose conscious ness until well along in the small hours of the morning, she wis up, dressed and had her bed made before the alarm clock wakened Augustus from his slumbers, . .
