When A Girl
- I sat still, making no move. It
seemed tha she must have een me
and preferred to pretend sh hadn't.
Perhaps she still wanted to avoid me
because of that ugly situation be
tween us, namely, the theft of my
ring. Perhaps fa6 evening in par
ticular Daisy wanted to avoid me.
"Without waiting for the other oc
cupant of the car which had brought
Daisy to the lake. I got up and
drifted round to the side door of the
Inn. The clock In the quaint little
living-room registered seven-thirty.
Dusk had given way to darkness, and
my uneasiness, over Phoebe and Neal
had given way to actual worry.
I made a trip up to my room; but
still Phoebe's which opened into it
was empty. And Neal's down the
hall and around the corner still fail
ed to respond to my knocking.
"Now, be sensible, Anne," I told
myself. "They may have gone off
he path and lost their way. But
to think that any harm has come
to them is silly; and to imagine for
one instant that they'd drag you out
here and then elope is melodramatic
They're Just lost, and if they aren't
tack by eight you must send out a
search party."
Of course I didn't want to do this
If it could be avoided. It would
mean publicity and a fuss, which the
whole Harrison tribe would go miles
out of its way to avoid.
. Time dragged on toward eight, and
as I sat in the lobby, where I could
watch both front and side entrances,
I had a great struggle not to go all
to pieces. Phoebe and Neal had left
' me before five and had promised to
be back in time to dress for seven
o'clock dinner. What could have
happened ?
Suddenly an inspiration, came to
me. Probably Daisy was with Carl
Booth, vho was due back in town
just about now. Nice old "big
brother," Carl would know just what
to do. I'd go to the dining-room
door, and if he were there. I'd have
the waiter take me to him.
Suiting action to thought, I hur
ried across the lobby and to the very
door of the dining-room. Just as I
got there something made me turn,
and there in the lobby stood Neal,
looking sadly scratched and bedrag
gled. But he was alone. No Phoebe,
I turned and ran -to him, but not be
fore I had glimpsed Daisy and a mas
culine figure I identified with a feel
ing ff distaste and distrust. It was
Tom Mason not Carl Booth; and that
put an altogether different complexion
on what I had just been regarding as
merely a jolly little dinner party.
When I reached. Neal he seized my
wrist and pulled me out into the
shadows of the verandah. There cow
ered Phoebe a sad sight, indeed,
with her pretty white clothes all cak
ed in mud.
"Oh, darling! Are you hurt?" I
cried, -darting forward to gather her
In my arms.
(To Be Continued)
Efficient Housekeeping
The old-fashioned "mantel-piece"
was an over-loaded horror, boasting
vases, sea-shells, plaster figurines,
gilded ornaments, photographs, and
generally a massive marble clock. For
in grandmother's day Interior Decor
ation was an almost unheard-of term,
and the idea of restful surroundings
benefitting the nerves had not yet
been conceived.
I believe that the average house
keeper who is her own interior dec
orator, is more "at sea" regarding
the treatment of her living room
mantel, th-an about any other section
of her ' house. Letters from my
women readers bear out this belief.
"Is there any accepted and conven
tionai - treatment of a. mantel ?" say
such letters; "are there any particu
lar ornaments which must or must
not go on tn mantel?"
To which I am obliged to reply
that every mantel brings its own in
dividual problem. There are hardly
two tbat can be treated exactly alike.
For they differ so greatly. Notice a
this fact as you go about the homes
of your friends. The wood, the til
ing, tlae color of brick, the position
in the room, the size, the surround
ings all these points must be taken
into consideration when planning
the correct treatment of a mantel.
60 M,rs. A.'s problem is never the
same as Mrs. B.'s The only thing
for npy Reader Friends to do, if
tney want me to help them, is to
write i me a minute description of
their own particular mantel, so that
I can; advise them personally con
cerning it. (A stamped. self-ad-dresseld
envelope should accompany
such i-equests).
Thejre are, however, certain gen
eral itemarks which can be made
about S certain classes of mantel. A
low, fihort, mantel, for instance,
shoula never hold a massive orna
ment. An unusually large mantel, on
the -other hand, is not well balanced
if fit bears only diminutive objects.
A mantel which is placed in the corned-
of a room looks best with a small,
sifluare rug. directly In front of it
(never with the ramp, a i

New But perhaps the crudest mistake
Jf-ii that one c&n make is to treat a f or
mal mantel informally. By a "for
nal mantel" I mean a mantel placed
5i among perfectly symmetrical sur-
TI roundincs for tnnbinoo vrith
on either side of it, at equal dis
tances, or with even paneling on
either side of it. or with the ibuilt
in twin bookcases on either side of it.
Such a mantel should bear a pair of
candlesticks, or a pair of .vases, or a
pair of oil sketches, or a pair of any
objects which will give it a, formal
appearance In harmony with its sym
metrical surroundings. The formal
arrangement which I prefer is a medium-size
bronze or dull-brass clock
in the center and a pair of candle
sticks at either end; the clock is a
most appropriate ornament for a
mantel, and candlesticks always give
a quaint old-time dignity which is de
lightful. And now, what may the Informal
mantel bear? it may bear anything.
For instance, you may stand a bas
relief ai a point three-quarters of its
length, if you wish, and a good-looking
jade green bowl may hold flow
ers at the farthest point from It.
That's the best of the Informal man
tel; we can try various odd things
upon it and make an original mas-
terpiece or it as tne artist does with
JV i his paints and canvas.
ly I once heard a successful Interior
decorator say. "Show . me a person's
mantel, and I'll tell you how much
i artistic taste he has." And I -believe
r It i true that Mie mantel is either a
tribute to us or & give-away.
Impressions of New York
"My tongue Is all sunburned from gaping np at the tall buildings.
Then I went up in the Woolworth Tower and singed my neck looking
down at 'em."
"I don't belong in New York. It is too big. Seems to me the trails
are just as high as they are long. The only way to see the town right Is
to lay qn your back and look up."
"So this is the Woolworth Tower? What I'd like to know is where
they get a rope long enough to yank up these elevators."
"Say it is a wonder to me some of these girls I see dressed for the
doings at the big hotels don't get confused and go to bed by mistake." t ,
"I was down to the Stock Exchange. All I see is a lot of guys with
books in their hands makin' passes at one another and callin' each other
names. Any minute-1 expected to see a scrap come off; but I guess the
referee sittln' in the big chair had em all buffaloed."
"What I like is the way the New York cops handle crowds. From the
way I saw 'em handle that Wall Street mob, they must have had spurs on

Revival Of Old Pictures
Meets With Approval
In these days of the motion picture,
when artistry and realism Is the cry,
when censors, oftentimes bigotted,
wield their, oftentimes provincial
opinions with deadly results, insofar
as the lethargic public is concerned,
it is especially significant to note the
revival of old pictures and their re
ception by a people satiated with pro

Is action, swift flowing, tensely ab
sorbing; there is acting, realistic In

d'Annunzio's direction.
Only a few months ago "The Birth

with sweeping approval in New York,
and wherever else it was shown.
There is a general revival of the

those stars when producing pictures

Pretty girls have an advantage over
homely ones. That is true enough
generally, bat it is not true or, ra
ther need not be true in individual
oases. One of the most popular
women I ever knew was also one of
the ugliest. Her popularity was not
due to prettiness but to her magnetic
Ever so many girls write to, me and
say that they are not popular with
their boy friends because they are not
pretty, that the good-looking girls
run away with all the attention so
that the homely ones occupy the un
comfortable position of wall flowers.
I know how unhappy these girls
feel, and I dislike writing them un-
sympathetically. But after all, if
they are neglected j is their own
There is an enormous amount of
passing and temporary attention that
rails to the lot of the pretty girL But
the real friendship and the lastine af
fection is much more apt to eo to tha
homely girL For when she does at
tract, it is not because of a pretty
face but because of something much
more permanent in herself. If yon
will run over in your mind all the
friends you know, I am sure you will
find that those who have been hap
piest in their friendships and mar
riages are not the prettiest ones.
This is not an argument for you to
be satisfied with a homely appear
ance. The woman who is beautiful
and posseses also sincerity and intel
ligence and a magnetic personality is
the one who has all the advanfAFun
who will not be spoiled and who
will not ruin her life. Make your
self as beautiful physically as you
can, but do not think that your life
li ruined because you possess an ugly
nose or a homely mouth.

A Peachy Story About
a Peach
Corin-ne Griffith, Vitagraph star,
while making scenes for her current
production, "Moral Fibre," found
it necessary to eat (more peaches at
one sitting than' she has ever eaten
before in her life. It is a big piece
of business dn which the director and -
camera man .photographed Miss Grif
fith seated at a little kitchen tabls
albsent-mdndedly munching peaches
while her eyes sadly register the 1
thought that the. world is a sad place -to
live In.
The first time it was shot the . cam- . N
era man was not satisfied with the
lights, so Miss Griffith went over the
scene again and ate a second peach. '
The second time the director re
quested that her expression be not
quite so comic, as the business of '
eating the peach was funny in itself,
bui at the same time he did not want ;
to make it a laughing matter. So, ;
for the third rime, they shot it over.
Then the director commented on the :
fact that most of the peaches were i
gone and that . two more peaches
should be put into the plate so that '.
the picture as it is finally" shown
would convey the idea mat sue had
just started to eat peaches and had :
not finished a saucerful. ',
After it was over Miss Griffith ex- ;
claimed: "I will never eat a peach J
again as long as I live! I feel like
an ostrich! I imagine that the three 4
peaches I have already eaten can: Ibe-
seen distinctly outlined beneath my
chin." '
