Oourtland goes to a cafo, and while
Indulging in reveries a young woman
Heats herself at hls table. After dis
cussing triviulties, he suddenly left
her. Flora Desimoine. a beautiful and
capricious singer, announces that she
wishes to go to Capri, but her com
panion demurs. Oourtland goes to her
house and through the speaking tube
demands the address of a young
■\voinan acquaintance. She finally tells
him that the woman is to sing at the
Austrian ambassador’s that night. He
goes there and tries to bribe her
chauffeur to let him ride home in her
auto, but is threatened with arrest.
He manages to secure entrance to her
house, but is repulsed at the point of
a revolver. He meets a friend and
reads ol’ the disappearance of
Eleonora da Bascana, then starts in
search of her. believing that she has
been kidnaped. It is learned that she
has been imprisoned by mistake.

just as capable an actor as she was.

carried out so adroitly that he had

"That is all.”
Free! Her veins tingled with
strange exultation. He had lost his
courage and had become afraid of
the consequences. Free! Monsieur
Champeaux indeed! Cowardice was a
new development in his character.

He glanced toward the forward
part of the tram. There she sat, star

her. She whirled upon him so sud

"Your hat, Monsieur?" he said,
gravely, returning it.

The minister’s eyes sought Court

scene. And what a pair they made!

For the briefest moment the blazing
blue eyes clashed with the calm brown
ones. The latter were first to deviate
from the line. It was not agreeable to
look into a pair of eyes burning with
the hate of one’s self. Perhaps this
conflagration was intensifled by the
placidity of his gaze. If only there
had been some sign of anger, of con
tempt, anything but this incredible
tranquility against which she longed
to cry out? She was too wrathful to
notice the quickening throb of the
veins on his temples.
"Mademoiselle, I find no case
against Monsieur t'ourtlandt, unless
you wish to appear against him for
his forcible, entrance to your apart
ment.” Nora shook her head. The
chief of police stroked his mustache
to hide the fleeting smile. A peculiar
case, the like of which had never be

"No, none at all, monsieur,” quickly
”lu my opinion, then, the whole

employed this chauffeur may not have

"Ah!" angrily. “And am I to have
no redress? Think of the misery I
have gone through, the suspenee! My

Dear Miss Doon:
Kindly publish in the Evening
Star how to dye a pair of portieres
green? They are green now. but
somewhat faded, and 1 would like to
freshen them. Hoping to see an an
swer soon, MRS. E. M.
The wisest procedure would be to
buy a package of reliable dye, and
tiip the curtains according to direc
tions. However, if the portieres were
mine, I'd send them to a profes
sional dyer. Don't you think they
are rather clumsy for amateur dye
big? Tf the dye is not applied evenly
the portieres will be streaked and
A Soiled White Plume

Coll the feather so as to be able
to get it in a quart jar. Fill the
jar with gasoline and screw on the
iover. Shake gently back and forth
about a dozen times. Take out the
feather, shake well and put Into an
airy place to dispel the odor of gaso
If the feather Is not clean enough
after this, pour off the sediment and
try again. This will not take the
curl out of the feather. To curl
draw the little strands over the edge
of a blunt silver knife.
Do not use gasoline near a tire or
in a warm room. It is highly in
Wine Stains on Silk

Her Bag Had a Kerosene Bath
Dear Miss Dodn:
T have a black leather bag lined
with black goods, on which I spilled
kerosene. The odor is terrible and I
cannot use the bag until you tell me
how to get rid of It. Also how can L
stop biting my nails? 'Jiiey are very
short and I cannot let them grow
long. ELIZABETH M.
Open the hag and expose it to the
sun and air for a few days. The
odor will probably disappear when
the oil evaporates.
The best way of breaking the habit
of biting the nails is to stop biting
them. You must learn \o control
your nerves, instead of letting them
OH of bitter aloes, put upon the
tips of the fingers, will serve as an
unpleasant reminder of your resolu
tion to conquer the habit.
Soaking them for five minutes
every night in warm sweet almond
oil will encourage the nails to grow.

An Azalea and a Fern
Dear Miss Doom
Would like to have your advice in
regard to taking care of an azalea for
the winter? Will be glad to receive
any information you can give. Also
can you tell ine about the care of a
fern? Thanking you, MRS. C. S.
The azalea should have been
placed in the ground, pot and all, in
a shady place for the summer.
If it is in good condition now and
has not outgrown its pot, take it in

Dear Miss Doon:
My little girl’s hair seems to be full
of nits. 1 tried larkspur seed, but that
did not seem to remove them. Other
wise her scalp is clean and healthy. ,
Can vou possfbly give me a remedy.
MRS. C. M.
The tincture of larkspur seed has
probably killed the life of the nits,
and you will find that brushing the
little girl’s hair regularly with a stiff v.
brush will soon cause them to drop >,
off. Brush the hair several times sf
day. Combing with a fine comb will
To Scour a Table
Dear Margery Doon;
Will you kindly tell me how to
scour a deal table that was varnished
at one time, the varnish having partly
worn oft? I would like to scrub it
and then enamel it white. Don’t you
think it would look well? It 1b a
little bedroom table. Thanking you
for what help you can give me,
When scouring, always scrub the
way of the grain of the wood.
Silver sand should be used with
soap and will help make the deal a
The way to set to work is to first
of all wash the table, then sprinkle
the sand over It and scrub—using
plenty of elbow-grease—with a stiff
brush. Rinse with cold water, and
wipe dry with a perfectly clean cloth.

From a Student
Dear Miss Doon:
I am a student at Seton Hall and '
have Wednesday evening and all day
Thursday at my disposal. I therefor*
ask if you can suggest any form of
employment, such as tutoring, etc.,
which I might do during my spare
time? Hoping to see my answer soon,
1 am, COLLEGE.
If I were you I'd advertise. Write
a straight-from-the-shoulder "ad,”
stating exactly what you can do. It
would also be a good idea to go
among the “prep” boys and offer to
give private lessons to the ones that
need help. In this way you might
be able to earn a fair amount. Don’t
you think so?
i What Becomes of Burnt Sticks
If we put a piece of wood on a fire
and watch what happens, we notice
that in time there is nothing left but
the ashes, although the wood, to be
gin with, may have been as large as
we could carry; so that it is quite
obvious that what composed the wood
in the first place has been destroyed
or in some way quite changed. But
if. instead of a piece of wood, we put
on the fire a lump of stone, we shall
watch in vain for it to disappear. Tt
does not burn. So that some sub
stances arc inflammable and others

that burn have the power of uniting
with oxygen gas, and when they do
this they become hot, and the chemi
cal elements composing them split up
into other gases and are given off as
smoke or fumes, says the Children’s
Magazine. All these find their way
again into the body of plants, which
breathe in these kind of things; and
so nothing is lost, but the elements
which we burned in the piece of wood
in the first place are simply changed
into other, forms of material.
A Simple Sunday Salad
Some jellied meat or salad, with
bread and butter, is quite sufficient.
If a salad is preferred as a piece de
resistance in place of meat it may be
a little heavier than the‘bit of green
served at dinner. Nuts, fish, cheese or <
eKg mixtures may be used in it. For
variety’s sake the fruit and salad may
be combined as in a Waldorf salad or
in a banana salad with nuts. If one
desires to simplify the menu still fur
ther, buns or German coffee cake mav
take the place of both the cake and
the bread. Some people find chocolate
too heavy a beverage, while others
desire nothing for Sunday supper but
chocolate with whipped cream and a
sandwich with a bit of green—like
mint, lettuce, nasturtium or water
cress—in the filling.
