TELLS OF SURGERY'S TRIUMPH
Surgery' grcntest triumph during
this war has coma through a repudia
tion of medical decoctions. It hns
como through tho elimination of disin

wounds, and tho substitution therefor
of tho knife.
It was not In those words that Cot.
Herbert A. Ilruce, consulting surgeon
of the llrlllsh armies In France, whoso
professional territory at tho front em
braces 30,000 beds, expressed It when
lie was asked what he regarded as tho
greatest achievement of surgical sci
ence since tho war began. In pcaco
times ho Is professor of clinical sur

Emily waa a very clever girt. Every
bne had always said so, from her ador
ing nunt, who taught her the alphabet,
to her sociology professor in the uni
versity. She was pretty, too, or rather,
as her butterfly cousin, Kate, once re
marked, "she would be stunning if
she'd give herself half a chance." That
was the trouble with Kmlty. In any
savo Intellectual directions she never
gave herself half a chance. She end
never felt the slightest Interest In boys
and men except ns teachers and hu
man beings with worth-while minds.
At twenty-two Emily wns that anora
aly among womankind, n girl who bad
never had any sort of love nffnlr.
True, there bnd been one. or two young
men In her classes who would have
liked to go farther than mere acquaint
ance, but Emily had never given them
the slightest encouragement.
When she went to visit Kate last
aummer'lt was not because she wished
to share In the social life of which
Kate formed so capricious n part, but
simply because she thought that Kate's
home In a small town would be a good,
quiet place where sho could work on
her thesis undisturbed.
ITowever, Emily wns mistaken.
There was not nn evening when the
veranda was not filled with gay youth
come to pnss the time, or there wns not
a dance at the club, n party or a piny.
The days were Just as full; tennis,
"Joy rides" with one of Kate's ridicu
lous boys, picnics, tens In short Emily
found that she would have to state her
purpose In life quite flatly nnd nsk
Knte to count her out. So she sat In
her room one afternoon, trying to con
centrate on a thick volume with n for
midable title, while the sounds of gay
voices drifted up to her from the ve
Knte w'ns there, of course, nnd two
or three other girls. Also two young
men who should, thought Emily, have
been In better business. There wns
something quite demoralizing about
tho sound of their apparent pleasure.
Emily found It hnrd to work. Not that
sho envied them, rnther she felt sorry
for them, poor frivolous things! Sho
closed her book nnd snt with her eyes
on space, thinking absently.
"Where's your cousin?" she heard
one of the men ask suddenly.
"Emily? Oh, she's boning over her
old books, at least she said she was
Toor thing I" commented another
girl. "I feel sorry for her. Just because
sho Isn't attractive nnd popular I sup
pose she has to be Intellectual. It
must be nn awful strain I"
"I should sny so," spoke tip n third
girl. "I felt awfully sorry for her tho
other night nt that picnic. Everybody
else paired off nnd had n good time.
She looked awfully lonesome."
"Well," there wns n shrug in Knte's
voice. "I've dono my best. I can't help
It If she Isn't popular. Besides, I think
she renlly likes to study. You enn't
do nnythlng for a girl like that."
Emily felt her face burn scarlet. So
they were sorry for her I Sorry for
hert Why, sho had thought tbe pity
all on her own side, now dared
The voices below were rumbling on.
"They say Grant Sturgls Is coming
home next week. I haven't seen hlra
for years, but they say he Is perfectly
stunning nnd an awful heart-smasher.
There's some one to set your enp for,
Kate. He has loads and loads of
It wns right then. In linger and tho
spirit of revenge, that Emily conceived
her remarkable plnn. To think was to
act with Emily, and she lost no time
In writing orders In to various city
stores. Within a few days mysterious
boxes began to arrive for her, the con
tents of which she kept secret. If
Knte wondered about them It was
without a great deal of Interest. Books
no doubt, or somo more of those im
possible tailored skirts nnd flat-heeled
shoes that Emily always wore.
There was to be an Informal dance
at the Country club one evening u
week later. Rnther to Knte's surprise,
Emily said that she thought she should
like to go.
"Could you get n man for me?" she
asked her pretty cousin.
"Oh, yes, of course. There's Eraractt
Brown; will ho do? I'm going with
Murray Jones myself, but when I get
there I I can tell you. Era, there's
Just one man I wnnt to flirt with to
night, nnd that's Grant Sturgls. He's
tho best looking and richest man In
Elmvllle, and all the girls are wild
about him. I want to cnt them out."
"You doubtless will," Emily encour
aged her, with an odd little smile.
Kate was so Interested In her own
dazzling toilet that she never stopped
to wonder what Emily might wear.
Indeed, she went off with her escort
before Emily wns ready, and did not
seo her until after the second dance.
And when sho did see her she was not
at all dure that It could be Emily.
"Who's that girl over there;' the
stunning ono In, yellow with her back
towards us?" she asked Emmett
Brown, with whom she was dancing.
"Well, you ought to know; It's your
own cousin. Sho looks mighty nice
Emily turned around just then and
Kate gasped". Was this Emily, of the
horn-rlmmed spectacles, the tight coif
Curo, the flat-heeled shoes? Her dark.
soft hair was drrssed high la a '
becoming mod, her smooth checks
were delicately flushed, the spectacles
were missing, and the neck of her soft,
yellow gown revealed a most-bewllder-Ingly
lovely throat and shoulders. Her
dainty feet were satin-clad, and she
danced divinely. More than that, she
was dancing with Grant Sturgls, and
ho appeared to be enjoying It!
As tlio evening slipped by, Knte
found that Emily danced very fre
quently with Grant Sturgls. Indeed,
Knte herself had only one dance with
him, and his conversation during that
time wns chiefly about her beautiful
cousin. Knte decided that he was not
so very handsome, after all, nnd If ho
wns queer enough to be fascinated by
a blue-stocking like Emtly
"Yes, she looks lovely tonight," Kato
assented rather grudgingly. "I wish
she would do It oftener. ,1 hppe sho
hnsn't bored you tnlklng sociology."
"Sociology?" ho echoed In surprise.
"She hnsn't. no. Docs she go In Mr
that? I Judged she wns a butterfly
kind of girl."
And Koto was too amazed to an
swer. When Emily came homo that night
she wns a very radiant and lovely
Emily. Knte wns waiting for her, In no
very pleasant mood.
"Well," was Knte's greeting, "I hope
you had a good time. You got the Hon
of the evening nil right. Why didn't
you tell me you had thnt dress?"
Emily looked nt her In mild sur
prise. "It didn't occur to me," she sold.
"I'm sorry, Knte, If you wind because
I monopolized Mr. Sturgls. After whnt
you told me, perhnps It wasn't qulto
fnlr. But you see "
"I hnppcned to know thnt you nil
thought I wns an unnttrnctlvo stick,
and I wanted to show you what I could
Kate's nmnzed look slowly widened
Into nn appreciative smile.
"Well," she snld, "I guess you show
ed us. Every girl there was green
"And what's more," Emily went on.
"I hnd an awfully good time. In fact
Mr. Sturgls nnd I got so very wcl
ncquulntcd that I shouldn't wonder
but whnt I may decide to marry him,
ns he wants me to."
"Oh, Emily I" murmured Knte. "I
alwnys knew you were clever, but
this . My, I guess clever people can

BUILDS CHARACTER OF CHILD
Kindergarten One of the Most Valuable
Features In the Scheme of
Kindergarten methods, whether be
gun by the mother In her own home or
by the trained teacher In school, are
of Inestimable value to the child, for
character building is nlwnys made their
principal aim and object
Perhaps mothers maynot have leen
trained in kindergarten methods, but
at least they can learn how to tell a
story. Anyone can read a story, but
telling one Is much more effective and
much more enjoyable to the child. Ev
ery mother should learn how to tell
n story. Use your own words nnd
chooso simple and forceful ones. A
bnro plot is Interesting to tho tiny
child, but mnny details should be sup
plied for tho older boy nnd girl; they
lovo them. Uso direct discourse when
ppsslble. Be cnthuslnstlc. Bo dra
matlc. After the story Is finished, talk
it over freely with tho children. Chooso
some stories which tench kindness to
animals and some which give training
In morals or good habits, but never
point the moral.
A tnste for best literature can often
be formed In early childhood through
a wise choice of stories. This Is also
true of music. The songs and music
used In tho kindergarten are always
cnrefully selected by the klndergnrtner
and should bo Just as carefully selected
for the homo by mothers. Allow your
children to hear only the best.
Besides story telling and music, there
are also pictures. Those which Inter
est the child most show action and
movement. Pictures are 'helpful be
cause they develop the Imagination and
arouse the creative faculties.
Games also nld in the great work of
character building. They help to de
velop self-expression and originality .
and can nlso be used to teach" self-helpfulness
toward, others. Through games
children may bo mode to discover the
evil effects of self-will and the good
lesultlng from self-control.
Play a.story with your child. See
how attentive Tie will bo and what
powers of self-expression he possesses.
