LOVE It Wat More Than That Later By ETHEL HOLMES At I am an old maid. I hare never had a lore affair and never expect to hay one. Perhaps this la why I take an In terest in the lorea of other people. Nothing la so attractive to me as to watch a young couple drifting Into that current which at first moves so Imperceptibly that they are not aware they are in it. Indeed, so unconscious are' they of being incipient lovers that it does not occur to them to conceal the fact from any one else. And to me there is something espe cially touching about the loves of chil dren. Some deny that there is such a thing as a pair of children lovers. 1 deny their negation, and I do so on a very sound basis. When I was ten years old I was in love with a boy of fifteen. This is the nearest I ever came to love. I remember one day sitting at my window sewing when a boy and a girl passed on the other side of the road. The boy's straw hat was dingy, and there was plenty of ventilation In its crown. Ills only other clothing was a shirt and trousersno shoes or stock ings, nothing around his throat, his collar being open and displaying the tanned skin. The girl's clothing was neither better nor worse, and there was about as much of it The two were evidently absorbed in each other. What they were talking about I was too far from them to hear, but It was of vital importance. It may be that the boy had been "kept in" after school and they were indig nant over time thus lost in play. It may be that some urchin had smashed the china head of the girl's doll. Whatever It was It was being discuss ed with animation. And I maintain that these childish interests are of more real importance for the time being than those which come later. No addition to an adult's stock of wealth gives the same zest a a new toy to one of these little people. Often afterward I saw these two and always together. In this they were different from other children who play, boys with boys and girls with girls. I learned that they were Henry Morse and Lila Bunker, a farmer's buy and farmer's . girl Indeed, we., were all farmer folk, ail knew one another, ev erybody being interested in some degree at least in every one else, a simple com munity and more than usually free from the petty Jealousies common to man kind. Henry Morse's father was determined that his sou should have a good educa tion, and the boy was sent away to school. After this I used to see Lila going by our house, but no companion supplied Henry's place. She was al ways alone, and I fancied her thinking of her other self. But this was simply tancy on my part. As I have said in the beginning, not having had any love affairs of my own. 1 conjure up love affairs for others. In this case of Henry and Lila I knew nothing of what was passing between them except from observation, so I may be excused for filling In occasionally that the story may not seem too disconnected. At the last I was present and shall not have to draw on my Imagination. When Henry came back from school there was a more modish appearance to his clothes and to his manners. Foor Lila, who had remained on the farm, had only an unadorned beauty, freshened by pure air and sunshine. They were now about sixteen years old, though Henry was half a ' head taller, and I could not see that their in terest in each other had waned, though the childish unconsciousness that they were of different sex had disappeared. I used to see them go by the house to gether as formerly, but the prattle of childhood had given place to the more sober conversation of youth. I often wished I could hear what they were saying to each other. Henry did. so well at school that his father decided to send him to college. I wondered what effect his four years association with young men and wom en of the world would have on my pet love affair. I feared that Henry, hav ing become used to the polished girls he would meet, would return to see in Lila a country girl lacking the airs and graces of her sisters of the city. Would this alienate him? It was to be expected that it would. And, though country born and bred myself, I don't know that those of us who go to the city and acquire city ways are to be blamed when we return and yield to dissatisfaction with country ways. Henry remained away a year at col lege before he came back to the farm. Then one July morning, when sitting at my window darning socks, I looked up, and there on the opposite side of the road were the couple I had first noticed eight or nine years ago as children. Though Henry was plainly dressed, his clothes were not country clothes. It seemed to mo that he might pass anywhere as a city bred young man. And Lila how my heart went out to I he poor child In her effort to dress in a fashion more In keeping with the apparel of those girls to whom Henry had been accustomed. It was all Inference with me. but it was plain to we tlir.f lie had prepared herself ngaluat his return to modify the differ ence liefwmi her and their habiliments. I wondered If uo noticed this and If It pleased or displeased blm. Surely her sffort was not very successful. In the country one may get city fashions, but It Is not every worker who can make ibeui up. But In the few moments they were passing it was impossible for me to tell If there hud been any change in Heury's feelings for Lila. So I pieced ;ut the story In this wise: Henry was hciduuiug to teu the difference between Iter aud the girls he had met I mean by "her her clothes a certain defi ciency lu what city people call chic. I am not referring to Lila as a soul, not even as a body, for in bodily beauty hy would doubtless far surpass many a city girl. Well, what do I refer to? Why, clothes and manner; that's all. After this Henry seldom came home during vacations. I heard that he usually went camping with his fellow students. At any rate, I lost track of my lovers. I was reluctantly obliged to consider my story, if not finished, at least passing through a stage of inter ruption. Henry had become Interested In a career which would have noth ing to do with farms or farmer people When he was graduated I learned that be was Intending to study medicine. But before he entered a medical col lege his father, who spared no expense on bis education, sent him abroad When I heard of all these matters, which were taking him farther and farther away from provlnclullsm and his provincial sweetheart, I groaned lu spirit, for I saw that my love story was likely to end in nothing. It was some time before Henry was to leate the medical college that I beard . bad news of Lila. They said she bad some trouble that was drag ging her down, but the doctors could not discover what it was. They could not diagnose It that is what they said of It Her father sent to the cit. and brought a doctor to the farm espe cially to see if he couldn't tell what was the matter with her. The doctor said ho couldn't find any organic trou ble, whatever that means, and the only remedy he thought might benefit her was change of scene. He advised her father to take her on a trip. But Farmer Bunker couldn't afford to do that, and Lila didn't care to go. I considered this merely a part of my love story. It was plain to me that Henry Morse had drifted away from the little girl I had seen him going by our house with when they were chil dren, and the parting was killing her. They say story writers often fall In love with their Imaginary characters. Therefore It's not strange that a story creator like myself should fall In love with a real person of flesh and blood. I had always known the Bunkers, so 1 went to see Lila. That was in the spring May, I think. I found her sit ting In an easy chair at her window, pale, languid and without interest in anything. It may be that she divined by my bearing toward her that I knew what was the matter with her. At any rate, when I went up to her, took her hand and drew her head down on my nhnuldpr ho left it thera and spcmpil to get relief from the tears that came. ' While she was weeping on my shoul der I was thinking. Not having any lover to bring back for myself, I wish cd I could bring back one for this poor girl. And I formed a plan. But it wus some time before I car ried it out, not till summer came. Then I told LUa's parents that I thought It would do her good to come and make me a visit Since Lila said she would like to do so, they consent ed, and within a few days she was in my room, the room from which I had first seen her go by with her child lover. I said nothing about Henry Morse either as boy or man any more than If he didn't exist. But when 1 put Lila in nn easy chair at the very window from which I used to watch her and him, and thought of her as she was then and saw her as she was now I made up my mind that if I was go Ing to make a good, real story of her case I couldn't rely on things to hap pen themselves. I'd have to bring them about myself. I was thinking, too, that my love story had been going on long enough, and it was time it was brought to a close. Besides, Lila was so weak that I feared In her condition she'd contract some real disease. So I wrote Dr. Henry Morse, who had Just been ad mitted to practice, that I had a patient in my family who wos dying of some disease that none of our country doc tors could tell anything about, and I would pay him whatever he asked if he would make a flying trip and diag nose the case. . . . ne wrote back that he remembered me very well and would run down In a few days. Of course I didn't let on to Lila what I bad done. She, poor child, wasn't dreaming what an influence my seeing her go by my window so many yearn before would have on her life. I hoped Henry would come as soon as possible, for, she was drooping more and more every day. Well, one morning be came. He said he had answered my call after his arrival even before going home. I was glad of this, for I was fearful he'd hear something that might interfere with my plan. I Just led him upstairs, opened the door, and he went in and I closed It behind him. I reckon he didn't make as long a call as that on a patient for a good many years. I don't know what hap pened between them didn't see the surprise of either of them. All I know is that when he came out two or three hours after he went In be looked at me as though he was going to say some thing, but pressed my hand Instead. Then I went In to Lila. She had the happiest smile on her face I ever saw. She put her arms around ray neck and cried and laughed ! And that's the end of the story. I don't ace why real iory writer don't do something themselves to fin ish their, own stories. PAIL ORDER EVIL; MAGAZINE MOVES TO REMEDY IT Former Professor of University of Wisconsin Outlines Extraordi nary Growth of Industry Which Must Be Curbed. . The' fight between, the retail selling of foods by local merchants and re tail selling centralized in the hands of a, few powerful corporations is an old one. But until now there has been no practical co-operation between the magazines and the million or more re tall merchants of the country. The re cent decision of the Delineator, the Designer and the Woman' Magazine to exclude all mall order advertising from their columns is important In that It brings to the thousands of scattered communities now conducting the fight a unifying force of nation wide scope and Influence. If it can achieve recog nition and co-operation at the hands of retail merchants It Is perfectly evi dent they In turn will profit substan tially under the new national leader ship. Paul H. Nystrom, former professor of political economy In the universi ties of Wisconsin and Minnesota, speak ing of the growth of the mail order in dustry, which has grown to be a men ace to local merchants, says: "One chief cause of the recent rapid progress of the mall order business is the tremendous Increase in circulation of popular periodical literature loaded with advertising, particularly the na tional women's magazines. Both read ing matter and advertising have shown the way to greater variety in consumption.- The magazines which have changed their policy so as to exclude all mall order advertising have a circulation of over 1,500,000 a month among the better class of families In the United States. This in itself removes the menace of mall order competition from the reading matter of about one out of every five merchandise buying fam ilies In each community. Undoubtedly this will be a powerful If not the de termining factor In the success of many a "buy at home" movement in territory thbt t now debatable. Edith Roberts, the Nestor comedy leading lady, Is a roller-skate fan. DOUBLES WITH OWN MOTHER "They only do It in the movies, is the caustic comment of the high brow, when a screen actress is forced by the exigencies of the script and the agencies of "double exposure" to play herself and her own moth er In the same pic ture. Ella nail has done plenty of dunl characteriza tions In her time. Her Inst Bluebird picture, "Polly Redhead," was a film of this kind; but her next will show a departure from the usual thing. Her own Ella Hall. really, truly moth er will play the role of her screen parent, and even If you miss the In troduction of the characters, you will know It at once, for there never was a stronger likeness between two wom en. Ella Hall Is just her mother over again, only twenty years younger. In the next Bluebird photoplay In which Miss Hall Is starred, and which is called "A Jewel In Pawn," Mrs. Hall plays the mother who lenves her little daughter as a pledge In a pawn shop. When she makes her first ap pearance on the screen the majority of the audience will think that she Is Ella, playing n double role, and later they will Imagine that they are looking at the most wonderful double exposure work ever taken for the films. As n matter of fact, the resemblance be tween the mother and daughter Is un usually striking, and It adds great real Ism to a picture which Is absolutely charming from the first scene to the last Walter Belasco, a brother of the great producer, gives n lifelike por trayal of the old pawnbroker, arid An trim Short, is excellent as the newsboy champion of Nora, the little girl played by Miss Hall. PRECIOUS AS JEWELS. "It might be n good Idea to place a cordon of police around those vege table stands," said P. A. Powers, treas urer of the Universal company, to the general manager of Universal City the other day, at the frame time pointing to three stands filled with garden truck, all of which was being used in the street scene. "Why the minions of the law?" asked the Universal City chief. ?Well, yon know, automobiles are being offered for onions and potatoes nowaduys and somebody might start a raid," replied the custodian of the Big U's strong box, with a merry lit tle twinkle in his eye. .Tack Mnlhnll bns thr role of a light weight champion ,vho goes to Paris to seek his fortune In the ring, In the Red Feather, called "Mr. Dolan of New York." l J r HUMPHREYS' Humphreys' Ilomeopftthio Remedies art designed to meet the needs of families or invalids, something that mother, father, nurse or invalid can take or give to meet the need of the moment Have been in una for over Sixtt Yeibs. , No. roa Price 1 Fevers, Congestions, Inflammations 28 Worms.
