In full possession of my apart ment, I hurried downstairs and on to the nearest drug store where I sought a telephone booth. I called Pat to the Sturrjes o!Bce. Fortunately he was there and I didn't have to ring the Dalton-Sturges Con .struction Company, where I might have been compelled to speak to Xeal and do some explaining I was anx ious to avoid for the time being. Pat's Irish chivalry didn't fail, and he promptly aoceeded to my reques: that lie join me for a taxi-drive and a talk-f est. Delicacy and diplomacy weren't workirtg very well in the case of Dal ton versus Dalton. That was clear. And circumstances had pushed me be yond the limit of endurance. ' I couldn't bide my 'time any longer waiting for polite rpportunities and openings that nevrr came. If I couldn't talk plainly to Virginia, I felt I must talk plainly to Pal.-1 So with a do-or-die feeling I hopped into a taxi and whirled down to Pat's office. Then with Pat beside me, I directed the taxi-driver to roll us out the river road and then, without a by your leave, I opened fire on Pat. "That night we were at your apart ment," he said, sidling up to the thing 'Tab fashion. "What was it you sine? ;ed into your pocket wtt-h a sigh of relief because Jim hadn't seen it?" . Pat removed his hat, ran his hand characteristically over his gray hair, tossed his head nervously and turned to me with what I feared would be a look of indignation. Instead he was twinkling. "And what do you think it was?" he demanded, surprisingly. "T thought you'd say 'None of your business, busybody.' Truly I did, I gasoed. I never descend to the obvious, said Pat solemnly. We both laugheed and the ice was broken. "It was Virginia's picture." I haz arded. "Warm." replied Pat. But only warm. It was a little miniature on ivory I had painted from a picture in my watch the only one Virginia forgot to pack, up and take away with her." I put my hand over Pat's and we rode in silence, staring ahead up the Fklte ribbon of road that reeled out ahead of us aimlesslv "May I tell him to take the left fork here at the crossroads? Both the other roads lead to the old place," said Pat, suddenly, with the effect of speaking through shut teeth. "Yes," I agreed, wondering what X had expectetl.-io. accomplish by this drive that was torturing Pat. "Does she know the old place is hers? he 'blurted out. I heesitated. How was I to tell him of the quarrel with Jim -of the pride that had turned to cold fury when Virginia found out that Pat had dared to buy the old estate and put it in her name? How was I to tell him that he had failed? Yet it was with intentions based on tUjese facts that I had summoned Pat, I had meant to urge him to drop his gentle methods. I had planned to tell him that Virginia was running away and that this confession of wea'kness gave him his opportunity if only he would go to Virginia this very evening. Weary from her day of planning for the trip and miscra'ble because Phoebe had defieed her, bit terly conscious that both Phoebe and Jim were estranged from her. I felt Virginia might yield to a coup and almost welcome Pat. But I had forgotten Pat's basic gentleness with womn A brutal at tack might have worn down Virginia's defenses. Then Pat's courtesy to me when I dared too much, made me realize that he wouldn't force him self on Virginia. My big idea crumrbled to dust before my eyes. Second thoughts were sober enough t to convince mc that at "best it had been only a wild idea. The pathos of the little miniature he had hidden from us was too much for my resolutions. I couldn't try to egg Pat on to forget the chivalry I felt to be part of him. "Does she know?" Pat asked again. Does' she see how I thought per Thaips I could make amends this way -amends for everything?" WHow you must have hurt her!" X countered at a venture "It isn't like you as I know you. Pat. But you must have hurt her terribly, then." "I did." "I did." said Pat sadly "Over and over again. Her pride. Her eager, dominant youth. I didn't understand then what it meant to have the Har rison pride. I didn't speak Virginia's language. I hurt her more than she could stand. She grew very cold then. I began to drink and she shrank from me as from something unclean. She couldn't bear me to touch her. I let her go. I had to. It was all I could do for her. "You let her go?" I asked. "You let her go? Just what do you mean by that. Pat dear?" "What I say", he said patiently. "I couldn't make a woman stay with me when I adored her and it was degradation and torture for her to feed my eyes on her with the love I couldn't hide." Then I began to see. I felt as if someone had opened a door for me. One more glimpse into the shrouded room of Virginia's unhappy past and I should know. "I must go home, "I cried. I must go home. My ankle I'm tir ed." I explained stumbingly. Pat was far too chivalrous to ques tion or protest. He had me driven home at once. But I wouldn't let him take me beyond the elevator, and when I got to my floor. I did a strange thing. I ordered the boy to take me right down again. Then I ordered an other ta:xi and drove off. It was only five. Virginia might not be home yet. But I would wait. I must see Virginia at once. To Be Continued. 1 Household Hints Better Mush.

SHOULDER E1ERCLSES A great deal has been written about the danger of a woman over djrrwel oping her shoulders. Square shoul ders are not supposed to be beautiful in a woman- This is one of the few remnantg 19th century prejudice that wo have carried over into the 20th century. The more feminine sloping shoulder may be better look ing than the square shoulder, but there are certain types of figure to which only the square shoulder is be coming, so a woman need not refrain from developing her shoulders "be cause she fears to make them braiwny or anfeminim. As a matter of fact, it would taktc much more ex ercise -than most Sfien could pos sibly manage to overdevelop the shoulders. There are two excellent exercises, both very easy to do at home. One is to stand upright wHh the arms stretched out in front of you and the hands doubled into fists. Draw the hands back to the shoulders, tensing the muscles as though you were pull ing a great weight. Fancy yourself out rowing a heavy boat against a strong current, that is the sort of ex ercise you are doing and it is one of the best for developln-e the shoulders and giving a beautiful shape to the upper part of the back. The next exercise is somewhat like this only the hands are held out at the sides and drawn into the shoul ders, so that when the elbow is bent Lho fists rest on top of the shoulders. Once more in doing this you must imagine you are pulling against a heavy weight. You must tighten the muscles until they hurt, and rejoice instead of grie.ve next day if your arms and shoulders feel sore. Doing the exercise over again will take out the soreness. The proof that you need the exercise is -the soreness of those muscles. Michael.

WASHINGTON SOCIETY LEADER OF MRS. HARDING HAS OCCULT TERRORS OF THE Dazzling Gem Is Worn Fear lessly By Mrs. Edward B McLean Despite the e Jinx' That Has Marked Its Om inous History. By Mil I : ; ! ;n MORRIS (International Xews Service Staff Correspondent.) Washington, June 6 The Hope diamond 'jinx' nas no terrors for Airs. Edward B. McLean, Washing ton social leader and wife of the multi-millionaire publisher of the Wa? .irvgton Post and Cincinnati En quirer. When May Tohe, former music hall favorite whose exploits filled nerwspaiper columns, was hurt in a fall in New York the other day. she attributed the accident to the Hope diamond hoodoo. Through her mar riage to Francis Hope, she was the former possessor of the most famous of diamonds. Mrs. McLean, its present owner, continues to wear the gorgeous gem, apparently indifferent to the legends connecting the mishaps and tragedies which have befallen its possessors in the past with some evil occult power supposed, to be embodied in this won drous diamond whose rays are so dazzling they almost blind the eye. The Hope diamond crowns a collec tion off jewels said to he one of the most wonderful in the world. When traveling, Mrs. McLean carries most of the collection with her. Her hus band always employs a detective to accompany her and keep an eagle aye on her jewel treasures, for this young woman who has priceless dia monds and rubies and pearls "to burn," as her friends express it, is said to regard them as carelessly as if they were mere baubles. It is no longer a shock to Washing ton to see her on a shoping tour wearing the Hope diamond with a sports suit. She wears it almost con stantly and with any sort of costume. Formerly she wore the famous stone at formal evening functions as the center of & jeweled diadem. She norw wears it as a necklace pendant. The natives of Point Isabel, the fish ing village In Texas on the Mexican border where Mrs. McLean accom anied President and Mrs. Harding last November on the outin-g which "freshened" them for their entrance into the White House, still remember the "jewelled lady who roughed it with a rape of costly pearls around her neck and wore gorgeous rubies to brighten her outing costume. The present possessor of the Hope diamond and closest friend in Wash ington's social set of Mrs. Harding, the First Lady of the Land, is the daughter of a Colorado miner. Old-timers in Ouray, Colo, recall the time when Evelyn Walsh played round the picturesque mining camp in p inaf ores an d her fat her, 1 Tom" Walsh, went to work every morning in a red flannel shirt and carrying a pick. "Tom" Walsh, whose etory reads like a fairy tale, was a man of genu ine culture. His hands wer rough with toil, hut he needed no college degree or blue blooded ancestry to grace the position of companion of kings and statesmen. Social triumphs in Newport and Europe marked his path after he "struck it rich." Health Talks By JOHN B. HUBER, .A.M., M.D. (HjAXDUIiAR THERAPY.

The Colorado mining king dazzled Paris with the magnificence of his en tertainments, the most notable of which was the dinner he gave in honor off Belgium's king. Food truly fit for a king was served on gold plate. Mrs, McLean's intimacy with Mrs. Harding is of long standing. When the Hardings returned to Washing ton to prepare for the inaUguraion, they were guests at the McLean home and remained there utnil they moved into the White House. Recently the Chief Executive and the First Lady of the Land "dropped in" on a dance the McLeans were giving and their first Sunday outing after they entered the White House was spent at Friendship, the Mc tean country estate at Lee-sburg, Va. It is rumored that the McLeans have offered this country place to the Pres ident for a summer home.

He has taken the stand that the average individual "resents cen sorship as a repugnant manner of taking away his inherited rights." Further discussing his ideas, ttie Rev.

All housewives, 'then, should learn to re move tha bones. It is easy to do. Have your fishman deliver the shad to you in the ordinary way scaled, cleaned, with head and tail cut off. Place it upon clean wrap pins: paper and, with a slender-bladed knife, split the fish all the way along the side of it which has been partly opened bv the fishman when cleaned the under part. Then, as though you were opening a book, 'take the top side of the fish with the left hand and, holding the knife in your right hand, cut the flesh away close to the bones till the back of the shad is reached: in 'Lhis way. the fish will lie fiat, opened, its back representing the book's binding and its two sides the I leaves of an op-en book. Now begin at the neck and sep- arate the backbone from the flesh of i the 'lower side. Free the backbone of ! all f!'.-sh and remove it gently so that I the innumerable small bones which are attached to it. will also come away. Next make three shallow cuts, equal distances apart, on each of the two halves of the opened fish. These cuts should run ;he entire length of each half, and in making them take care not to press hard on the knife, for the object is merely to open the Mesh down to the row of bones but not to go through the bones. The next step is to loca-te the bones in one of the slits with the tip of your knife. Slip one tine of a two-tine fork under each bone as you come to it. lifting r. out gently, and continue this process till you have taken all the bones out of each of the three in cisions on each half of the shad. You will find, in doing this, that the nearer you reach the outer "edge of the fish, the shorter are the bones. To save trouble, vou may take a pair of scissors and. cut off a strip about one-half inch in width when you have reached the extreme outer edge: this way, you will remove many small bon.es and will not lose much of the fish because this stction of the shad is very thin. The small ventral fins will come away wi-.h this strip also. To make sure that you have re moved all the bones in this way, run your finger down each of the six long incisions vou have made in all, the two halves.
