STKAHNS, in Southern Woman's Magaziu With a sudden tightening of the lips, Barbara Holton lifted her head r. little higher, drew in her breath with what would have been a long, slow sob had it been audible, then turned and inclined her head slightly in the direction of the speaker be hind her. In a half-dazed fashion she reached out one hand and clutched the edge of the seat. "He's a thoroughly delightful man, you know," the clear, well-bred voice behind her was saying. "Really, Judge Dean is most favorably im pressed. The Board of Trustees have unanimously voted him the position. But he won't enjoy it. It s one of those impossible, unreconcilable tricks of fate. He has grown, but his wife has stood still. There is no congeni ality there." "How do you know." "Mrs. Dwi'nell told me. She enter tained them." The speaker laughed, ami a little contemptuous sound came to her voice. "Why a man like that want.; to marry such a woman is quite beyond me. He took me in to dinner at Mrs. Moulton's last evening. He's big really big stature, talk, thoughts. Miles above the ordinary man. She never says a word, just crawls into a corner and looks out with frightened, wondering eyes. She's pli'in, a little gray, forty, if she's a day. and makes no attempt to disguise it. She can't dress. Mrs. Dwinell said it was a positive re lief when she decided not to go to the reception. He can't help being hor ribly ashamed of her. It seems to me. if I were the wife of a man like Dr. Holton, I would at least attempt to keep up with the advancement of my husband." Mechanically, Barbara Holton glanced at the station clock. There were ten minutes before her train was due. Her face was ashen. Her eyes held the look of one who. knowing sentence of death has been passed, faces the executioner. So that was the woman John had taken in to dinner the woman he had described as "remarkably brilliant." The word fitted her to perfection the quick vivacity of her tone, the END YOUR O BY MAIL .

IVI N shine of her hair, her glowing cheeks, sparkling eyes, every detail of her shimmering gown. With an ache at her heart she glanced down at her own quiet, unas suming suit of blue, and, reaching dully for her bag, started for the door. On the way she stumbled, and wondered vaguely why her feet were so heavy then, a moment later, blundered against a man, and in a dazed way reached up one hand and brushed her eyes as though something obscured her vision. The only thing that seemed quite clear was that she was glad John had gone on ahead, I leaving her to shop a bit in the city ; stores. She wanted to be alone, j Pausing at the first empty seat, she sat down, looking straight ahead with eyes that saw nothing. Her heart beat draggingly. The muscles of her mouth were tense. Her ungloved hands lay motionless upon her lap. Advancement! For fifteen years it had been the keynote of their lives. She recalled every detail of their first home-coming. She remembered how he had stood aside to let her pass as they paused at the door of his den then, with his deep, positive laugh, strode to his desk and, taking up a pad. scrawled in big, firm characters, the single word, Advancement. "That's what life's for, honey," he declared. "Will you join me in the pact?" He held out his hand, as to another man, and she placed both her own within it, and whispered, "Even unto the end." The next day she had carried the sheet to town and had it framed in solid oak, and during all the years I that had passed since then she had I thought of it as a vow. But it had always been he. She had forgotten j herself. She remembered that to I day, for the first time, i When the train drew in at the sta tion she arose, and with the dazed look still in her eyes, hurried from the car and put her hand into that of a large, rather splendid-looking man who sat waiting in a big auto ' mobile before the station.

"Pretty tired?" he asked, casually, tfter a time. "ATo," she deliberated, as though weighing each word, "I don't think I'm tired." "Well?" His voice was quiet. John Holton's voice always was quiet and big, and slow. John Hol ton, himself, was quiet and big, and slow. Until one really felt the grip of the keen, gray eyes, and saw the line of the iron mouth when he was bating for some great stake, a? a life, they always wondered how it was that John Holton reached so high up into big things and so far down into small ones. She shook her head. Grave'y the keen eyes studied her face. Then his fingers closed a lit tle closer about thi rim of the wheel. "Want to take a run up to Old Glo ry?" he asked, carelessly, and then without waiting for an answer, turn ed into a narrow, hilly path. Up and up the car clambered over an almost 'impassable road throb bing almost stopping until at last it came to a stand and they found themselves looking downward over the valley below outward, at towering mountains on either side She caught her breath. Here, on the heights, one fact stood clear. It made no difference whether the path led up, or down; her plighted word was Advancement, even unto the end. Reaching out, she laid her hand on his knee. He smiled. "Got back?" he quiz zed. "Back?" "From the North Pole. Judgim from your face, all kinds cf glaciers rnd icebergs were there. What met vou, eh ? Better get it out, lass.

"Now," he declared, gruffly, "it's streams of molten fire, with soft lit tle waterfalls dancing all about. How did God make you, anyhow!" Turn ing the car, he started back the way they had come. Not a word was spoken until he swung into the home yard and brought the big car slowly to a stand. Then, springing out, he gave her his hand with smiling courtesy. "Hillard'o here," he whispered, "but for heaven's sake get a glass of wine and lie down for a second, even if supper is late." "Oh!" she cried, and ran before him to the house. She threw off her dress with hands which W3re like ice, slipped into a soft gray that floated about her like a cloud, pulled a couple of roces from a vase, tucking one at her breast and the other in her hair. Then, for just a second, she paused before her glass. The slender figure the big, serious eyes the face, with its tiny network cf lines about the eyes could lay no claim to beauty. There was no bril liancy there. A sob strangled under her breath, but with steady will she drove it back. "Your word, Barbara Holton," she whispered, chokingly, "was 'advancement even unto the end.' " Then, a little cruieter and pa ler than usual, she went down as the supper bell sounded, and almost be fore she knew it, found herself look ing into the lean, shrewd face and critical eyes of her brother Hilliard. His eyes looked her up and down. "Seedy," he commented, laconically- "I've been shopping," she explained. Dr. Holton shrugged. "Why is it," ho frowned, "a woman must shop as soon as a store comes in sight, wheth er it is necessary or not? . I left Bab this morning looking as fresh as a rose. She came home tonight look ing like" With a laughing cry she interrupt ed. "John. John!" she begged, "spare me! Hilliard has eves!" Wh-r-r-r! The insistent call of the electric bell pealed through the house, and Holton glanced through the house, and Holton glanced at the clock. "The deuce!" he said, and arose. "I'll take my dessert this way," he added, pulling cut a cigar. "That's Lee, for a consultation. I didn't realize it was so late." As the door closed after him, Keith took a long, slow sip of wine. "Great chance, this New York opening," he said. "John's in luck. She nodded. "It's more than luck," she replied; then, leaning forward, "Hilliard," she cried, impulsively, "why did you never marry?" , His eyes narrowed. "The woman I wanted wouldn't have me," he drawl ed, carelessly, taking a big. black ci gar, jind looking at it thoughtfully. "Are you sorrv or glad?" "Glad," he replied. "Mighty glad. I'm a beast. She got a good r.ian." "I didn't mean that way," she re turned, slowly. "I meant men out live such things, do they not? Love isn't to a man what it is to a woman. I wonder if all men do? A woman oh " She floundered helnlessly; then, with a little laugh, reached out s"d touched his nrm. "Look at me, Hilliard." she cried. "I've been hear in? truths today. Horrid truths! I'm old-fashioned a shame to my hus band. I can't talk. I can't mix. And it's pitifully true. Hilliard, John's got to mix if he goes to New York. It's a big university. There's a gvpat social side. He can't stand hick. ITis -wife's got to mix. He can. It's id him. She can't. What's the solution?" "The devil!" Keith growled. Then "I sny. Bab" She interrupted. "No," she declar ed. "I'm not being disloyal for that's what you were about to say. I would e if there were any iar between us. Rut in that case I'd not be talkng to you. I'd be talking to him." She threw up her head. "I've got to get solid ground under my feet," she cried. "Hilliard, imagine me the head of a big dinner party!" "God forbid!" he shrugged. The corners of her mouth twitched. "John couldn't help being ashamed of me," she choked. "It would be fiend ish." "It certainly would," said Keith, emphatically. "But my dear Bab, let me assure you " Dr. Holton threw back the door and re-entered the room. "Dame Fortune is kind now and then," he beamed. "Lee can't go tonight. No, no," as Barbara sprang up, "I don't want dessert." Then "What were you people talkng about so earnestly?" "You." Keith scowled, as Barbara, with a murmured excuse, left them to their cigars. "Bob always manages to get a start." When she heard! Keith go to his room, hours later, she came down and followed her husband to his den. Seating herself, she reached her hands to the tiny blaze smouldering in the grate. Then she leaned back and her eyes met his. "Take it one way, or another," she said, slowly, "life is mixed, just mixed." "It isn't life." he commented, terse ly. "It's people." She shook her head. "I was talk in with Kitty Jones, Sunday," she continued, "and I've been thinking about her to-night. She loves him, spite of all. She says she can never face life again." "It's a pity," he replied, lighting a cigar and puffing meditatively at it, "that she couldn't look at it another way. A man who deliberately takes a woman's life in the hollow of his hand, holds it there a bit and tosses it aside, is not worth one tear one heartache." , "Still perhaps he's just outgrown her." "Such things are," a biting con tempt sounding in his voice, "but the man who shows them is a cur. Let's forget Kitty Jones, though. What's the problem Barbara Holton has to solve?" Crossing to the window, she pulled aside the curtains and stood looking out into the night. A hard tight ness gripped her throat, then traveled downward until it clutched her heart. She flung out her arms with a ges ture of intense, pent-up energy, a dumb despair widening and deepening in her eyes, her lips compressed into a bloodless line, the silken draperies hiding her from sight. Then she stepped back into the light. "I'm not going to New York, John," she remarked, quietly, but there was a little hoarseness in her voice. Me chanically she turned her eyes to the oaken frame above his head, inclosing the magic word in its short, terse strength. "Not going!" incredulously. Then "Oh, well, we've not gone too far to stop. I don't mind." She took a step forward. "You'll go, of course," she declared. "I'll stay here and keep the home. It's a big chance, John. It means ad vancement for you wonderful ad vancement. But for me" two spots like flame lighted in her cheeks hr w-.-rds ti rnb ed out, hot ana passion ate, her hint's clasped and unclasoeci "I'm behi.'.d. I haven't kept up. 1 don't know how to talk to dn--- to be social in that kind of life. I'd hurt you there, John. It's a big place. You're a big man and I'm just a plain, uninteresting nobody who can't mix, who never could, and who never will. I'll stay here, dear, with the same love I've always given. You will know I'm always here. You can come as you will, but you'll not be burdened and held back." John Holton waited until her voice ceased. Then, hands in pockets, he stood before her. He seemed some how even bigger, quieter and slower than usual. "Say," he mused, thoughtfully, and though the slow bigness of his voice was unchanged, the pupils of his eyes were contracted as before a flash of blinding light, "do you remember that first year or two when I was down and out ready to give up? Who pushed me on? Remember the time we stood before Boy Tom's grave? Who held me up when her own heart was breaking? Who was it" his voice dropped low, his big hands gripped until the knuckles shone white from the pressure "when I told her I had wrongfully spent a thousand dollars from a trust, worked even at embroidery, going without the common necessaries of life, until the last cent was paid, and never once, either by word or glance, reproached me? Who was it, when my temper raged, taught me to bank the fires and, in a word, showed me God? Mix? WTiat do I care whether you mix or don't mix? If you want to go to New York, we'll go. If you want to stay here, we'll" stay. Ad vancement? God bless your soul, dear heart, you are Advancement!" With a grim laugh and a flrsh of the gray eyes a tightening of the iron mouth as when, against almost insurmountable odds, he world move heaven and earth to win he reached cut his arms to her. "Comrade," he said, "I Jove vou!" Danger Signal. If the fire bell should ring you run and stop it or go and help to put out the fire? It is much the same way with a cough. A cough is a danger signal as much as a fire bell. You should no more try to suppress it than to stop a fire bell when it is ringing, but should cure the disease that causes the coughing. This can nearly always be done by taking Chamber lain's Cough Remedy. Many have used it with the most beneficial re sults. It is especially valuable for the persistent coujrh that so often follows a bad cold or ?n attack of the grin. Mrs. Thomas Beerhing. An drews.
