T got to go tonight," Bertha in suited, monotonously. The maid would neither explain her necessity nor change her plana. I I save her up as a bad job. When I returned to the living- room laisy was sitting there alone. "The phone message was for Carl," she explained. "Your husband called him. Carl's getting so important now - that he has to act like a doctor an leave his phone number wherever he goes. I wonder if you'll mind if I run along now?" "Aren't you going to wait for Carl?" I asked, since it was just in order to have Carl carry out his en gagement with Daisy and take her to dinner, even if alone, that I had in vited i-er to call. "Xo; what's the use?" she ques tioned bitttely. "Carl called off his party as soJn as he found you weren't going to be there." "Keally, it wasn't that," I explained. "He only postponed the party till next week so that we could all be there." Taisy turned on me with a steely flash in her eyes and a sudden firm ness which gave, her a personality, even though it was the personality of anger. "He postponed the party for you. Everything's for you.- An adoring husband. Jewels. That beautiful orchid negligee. Can't you W-ave Carl alone? He didn't matter to you back in the old days when you called him a big brother and took everything he had to give. He doesn't matter to you now. But you you matter to everyone. Have you ever read the story of ravid and Uriah?" And laughing insultingly at her own amazing words, she rushed from the room, in such a whirl of anger and energy that I didn't attempt to follow on my bandaged ankle. Limp ing into the hall. I called Jim and told him of Bertha's unwelcome an nouncement that she was going to leave. "Suppose you try to persuade her to change her mind," I suggested. Jim grumbled a little, but assented. As he went out to the dining room, where Bertha was setting the table, I followed to listen to him. But Bertha proved obdurate and secretive. When we returned to the living room Carl was standing by the window waiting" for us. I have to run right along," he. ex plained. "It's just as well that my party for tonight was called off, for Mr. TTaldane has asked me to jump up to Canada after a new corpora tion that's iroinsr in f oar international advertising. See you a week from tonight. Then a brief good-fbye and the sec ond of our guests rushed off. "He seemed darn agitated over his little flier, in internationl business," said Jim scornfully. "Some men do get excited over every deal they tackle. Where's the field daisy?" "She also went off in a rush," I said, feeling a little amused at the way things were disposing of them selves. "What did he mean by "See you a week from tonight' ? demanded Jim. 'And what was that reference to his party for tonight? Are you making engagements with that bounder with out consulting me ?" 'Jim, don't call Carl a bounder," I protested. "He's a mice old dear. A good- friend. And ire's the first of my old friends I've asked you to meet. You might be decent to him." "I can't stand the goggle-eyed way he stands and adores you," sputtered Jim. I couldnt help chuckling over Jim's evid ent j e a lousy a nd at the absurd person he had selected to agonize over. "Carl's always been the best pal a girl ever had," I explained patiently. "Don't pull any of that platondc friendship stuff," Jim cried. "The man's in love with you!" "You think: every man I meet out side of your own circle of intimates is in love with me," I replied angrily, and then I crimsoned as it swept across my mind that even if Jim did think just that, it only evened up for the days When I thought every woman I met was in love with him. "Methinks the lady doth protest too much," said Jim, good natu redly, pinching my cheek. "But the blush is so darn beouming that I don't blame em, even if I hate the mooning" and sighing over my wife." Just then Bertha announced din ner, and leaning on Jim's arm, I went out to the table. Hardly were we seated when I thought of my ring, even if Jim, with a man's amusing lack of observation, had nought me a ring far too large for my finger, I wanted to wear it at our first meal after I came into possession of it. So I sent Bertha to the living- room to bring the little white box from the table. After a minute, she returned, car rying the box in her hand. As she held it out to me her hand began to tremble violently, and the box slipped from her shaking fingers to the floor. It opened and rolled to my very feet. Bertha stooped and recovered it, &ting the two parts together again. Then she put it on the table in front of me. Her face wss flushed from stooping, but when I looked up nt her after a frozen m i note or two, she had gone quite pale, I knew that my pallor out marched hers. The box was empty. To be Continued.

He was a man of excellent birth and education, who had squandered a for tune upon the turf, and who lived new by doing a little quiet and gen teel book-making in the sporting clubs of London.

There you have a Community of Professional Social Workers to Act As Mis sionaries Into Homes These "Parish Visitors" Wear Regular Clothes, Not Uniforms (Written by MARGERT REX for the International News Service). New York, May 30 Sufferers of the world have long been accustomed to receive kind ministrations from the scwnberly ffcu-bed Sisters of Charity. The robes that cover consecrated Sis terhoods are syn onymous with the offices of the Good Samaritan. Therefore, a Catholic order of women, whose members wear no habit. but nevertheless have consecrated their lives to so cial service and c h a r it y, is a striking innova tion In the Church. It has been so planned for a special need. , The new re relisrious commu nity has betfn es- international banker that the quick pecially created to give an opportu nity for missionary service at home, and to produce trained social work ers whose only task in life is to helv others. Under the patronage of Arch bishop Patrick J. Hayes, of New York, the Community of Professional Social "Workers has been established at 328 West Seventy -frret street. The community, numbering ten unmar ried women, bought the house some time ago. Although the asterhood has been working for more than a year, little has been pu'blicly known till recently about its activities. Its mefJiibrw wish no persona3 publicity, tout they desire that the aims of the organization be known and also wowld liek to Interest other women in joining the serivce. "This is so young an institution," explained the soft-voiced young woman who discussed their aims with me, "that it would be unbecom ing' to rush into print about our achievements so far." But the writer learned that recon struction and rehabilitation of the home is the great objective of all the organizations efforts. The sisters care for the poor and sick, both young and old from the baiby who needs a layette tp the child who should attend church and school- from the young couple in difficulties of various sorts to the aged and heln- loss.

' BEAUTY CHATS By Edna Kent Forbes REDUCTIOX We have talked a great deal about reducing weight In this cclumn, and have always come back to the ques tion of the caloric value of foods. This is because the caloric method of reduction is the most scientific one, and will apply in all cases. Any talk on reduction must necessarily be general since it must be made to ap ply to all cases. In the case of an in dividual, the present diet can be studied an future suitable diet sug gested; but where the individual case cannot be studied, the best way is to treat the subject from an accurate and scientific point of view. We shall go into the details of this later. Meantime one prcfblem. that seems to worry the stout woman is how many meals she can havo while she is reducing. It really does not matter so hng as she does not eat more than a certain amount of nourishment every day. She can have six meals if she wants or she can have only one. The point is that she should find out as accu rately as possible the number of cal ories of food she can eat every day. A woman can reduce and at the same time maintain her strength on 1200 to 1500 claories a day, which is 1000 to 1500 less than she has probably been eating. As a suggestion, the morning break. fast should consist of an orange, a slice of dry toast and a cup of black' coffee. The caloric value of this InO, and the body is stimulated and reg ulated by the coffee and orange ju'ee. An egg, plain salad, bread aind plain tea makes an excellent luncheon.

Change the style of dressing your hair, as this is what has thinned it out on the sides of the j head. Rolls over the ears are not con-1 sidered refined.

I had listened with the ercatet in terest to the statement which Holmes, with characteristic clearness, had laid to cf o r e me . Though most of the f a c t s wltj familiar to me, I had not suf-t'cic-ntly appreciated their relative importance, nor their connection to each other. "Is it not possible," I suggested, '"hat the incised wound upon ? raker may have been caused try his own knife in the convulsive strug gles which follow any brain Injury?" "It is more than possible ; it is probable, said Holmes. 'in that vase one of the main points in favor of the accused disaypears.'' "And yet." said I. .

"Homes form the nation," said one member to me "They make the Church and State. What we do for the homes is done for the welfare of the whole community. To teach good citizenship and firm American ship strengthens religious, civic and political life." Parish Visitors, as members of the new community are known, devote eight hours of each day to the homes of the most needy in each parish Spiritual advice is offered as well as attention to purely mundane necessi ties. The dairy programme is a rigid and austere one, hut the workers are happy and most zealous in their pro fession. A rising hour well before six o'clock and a retiring hour at 8:40 gives plenty of time for religious de votion as well as service to others. Many of the members were teach ers before entrance. Others gave up business or professional careers to concentrate their zeal upon the op portunities here offered. Must Serve in Many Capacities. Acting upon the thought that a good home is a blessrng to the com munity and a bad home a menace, the Parish Workers must play many parts in their daily service that of mother, older sister and spiritual ad viser. They co-operate with the pas tors of various parishes and also with the St. Vincent de. Paul Society. Scientific methods of home saving combined with true charity form the leading features of the institution's work, which seeks to save the future man and woman by protecting the home and the child. The women who now comprise the little family are graduates of the Fordham School of Social Service, hut they do not make such training and experience a pne-requisito for en trance to the new sisterhood. Any young woman with the proper quali fications for a religious life may ap ply for admission. These consecrated social workers wear no hahit, it has been -explained, owing to the nature of their duties. Their hours, both night and day, are utilized m their work. Three hours in the morning are glx-en to visiting homes, three in the afternoon and two in the evening. Daily mass. daily communion and meditation are offered in their plan of life. Recompense received from the pansn-es visited is put into the com mon p-.iv-'e of the institution. Al though the women wear the ordinary clothes such as other women wear, but of subdued colons, they have no concern with fashion. The life, though austere, is pleasant. Lives of the members are consecrated to the service as in other sisterhoods. CHAT. the dizziness, I do not advise mas satging tthe bust with camphor.

His bridle is missinjr so that Simpson must have put xl4s on. Then, having left the door open behind him, he was leading the horse away over the moor, when he was either met or overtaken by the trainer. A row naturally ensued. Simpson beat out the trainer's brains with his heavy s'-ick without receiv ing any injury from the small'kncfe which Straker used in self-defense, and then the thief either led the horse on to come secret hiding-place, or else may have bolted during the :truHgle. and be now wandering out on the moors.
