By VIRGINIA TERHUXE VAN DEWATER. m ( Within twenty minutes after Mary tele phoned for Dr. Haynes, his ring at the door of Mrs. Minor's apartment an nounced his arrival. But to the anxious woman who sat by the 111 child, watch ing tne-flushed face and listening to the hurried " breathing, the time dragged heavily. ,.., . i... . f "Oh, .Doctor:", she exclaimed with re lief as the .physician entered the room, escorted .thither by the maid, "I thought you were . never coming.." . The physician smiled as calmly as if there were no such thing as mothers' terrors in all the .world. Taking a chair from which Beatrice had arisen, he bent over the. little .girl and busied himself with, her." He nodded silently when the mother, told him, of, the chill Jean, had had, asked a few questions, and . took the child's temperature when she, awak enedvby h'ls voice, opened her heavy eyes and looked at him. Children always liked Dr. Haynes, and Jean obeyed with' docility air'hls orders, allowing him' td examine her throat, listen to her breath lng and go through the usual processes used by the profession In locating ' the cause of any IndWposltlon.-' Then,' &i justing the pillow under the little girl's head .he turned rtb!tfie' overwrought 'and anxious mother; - ' '.' ' "A glass of water, please?" he said briefly. ' " ".,' - '"' "Is she very ill?" faltered the woman, weak with fear. "' '' . . "She is"ill." answered' the doctor, "and she is suffering a good deal. But- her malady "is not a dangerous one. ? It Is malaria. Will ydtl get the water, please," Mrs.Siaynard?" ' . ' ' ? i; I His mistake in her name stung the woirtanrlh her present ' nervous state, to sudden and irrepressible impatience. - "My haifie in Minor" she said "sharply. Then, -to her own surprise an consterna tion, she burst1 into tears. Her weeping increased ' to hysterical sobs, and her overtaxed" nerves' gave way,- and Tier last remnant of equanimity was swept from her The strain of the last Week," her expectation of Rand61phfs proposal, her disappointment,' and now her anxiety, coupled with 'the1 enervating heat, had proved tod much for her self-control. " , Jeari,' startled from her slumber by Beatrice's- outburst,' added her cries' to the -general confusion. "Am i' going to die?" walled the little girl as she- became a ware of her .mother's tormy emotion. ' "Ani I going to die?" ; After a second' of helpless surprise the astonished 'physician took charge of the situation with the .characteristic deci sion of his kind." There was no time to lose, for the widow's sobbing was be ' comIng"spa8modIc, and the 'catch in her breath denoted the approach of the wild laughter of hysterics. Dr. Haynes chose the only effective 'course. 1 "Be quiet!'' he- commanded sharply. :"Do you hear 'what I Say? "Be tlll Stop that Infernal racket immediately .and go into the" other room!" You" turning to the frightened maid standing transfixed beside the bed "take your mistress away. She's making a. tool of herself and harming the child!-" . Surprise and involuntary obedience to ihiaBharp commands checked Beatrice's weeping, and the maid led her from the room..:.- . - ; Lying -on the couch In the darkened 'parlor she-could still hear Jean's whimpering!- -and' the deep, ' soothing voice of the physician. Before long the little girl ; wa quiet." i , But Beatrice was still too unnerved to take a sane or even a charactcrist'c view of the scene in which she had Just i played e- leading, . though not credible jpart-' Strangely enough, she was not ! angry with Dr. Haynes . for his rough ' conduct:-' At i " rtile, , it Is ' hard for a woman to 'forgive' anyone who has wit nessed her loss of poise or self-possess ion, but now the widow was only con scious, of a qualm of shame at hei own behavior p.rid a furtive Vesnoot for the man who had dominated her.'' Re spect often arises from our admiration of certain qualities In others which we do not possess ourselves. We do not respect greatly . those whose- thonght, whose souls are' only as exalted as art our . "own. There must be ' a' superiority of which' we are acutely conscious in the person who commands our deference. So Beatrice lay . with closed eyes, Weakened In mind and body by her vio lent' outburst, and felt no resentment toward the man who, in other circum stances, she would have declared had insulted her. After a few minutes she struggled to her feet and went across the hal! to the lighted bedroom. , She found Jean asleep and the doo tor "Just, closing his grip. "I am! all right row, DoctoV faltered the woman. '-'Are there ahy instructions which you wish to leave with regard to Jean?" ' ' ' , ' ... The physician looked at her gravely tor a minute before answering. , k ' "Lhave given- her a Boothing medicine already," he said. ? "She 1s t6 have thjs evpr?Tlwo'""h(u1f8?" 'Tn'e'dlrecte'! , )n his calm, professional voice, pointing to the liquid in the 'glass on the table, "and these powders three times a 'day. 1 shall call again ' tomorrow morning. . Do not worry tbout the little girl. I hope she may be all right in a few days." r .,' 'Thank you," said Beatrice meekly, i "Get Borne rest yourself," went on the physician more gently. "Tou need :It badly. - Don't wake the child to give her her medicine. I think she will sleep un til morning.? Go to bed and to sleep." Thank you," said the woman again. -He picked up hat and satchel and, with a brief good night, took hi9 depar ture. ' ' , " and a light kiss dropped on her flushed cheek, Beatrice crept Into bed and soon fell aslee?,,, exhausted.. , .. --' , . Jean was better In the morning, al though her hands were still hot and she complained . that the pain in her head swas had yet "Does it hurt very ejnuch, darling?" asked the mother. ' . : "Tes, it does,", whined the child", fret fully. "And I wish the doctor would come. He makes me feel better." "Don't you want to play dominoes, with me?" asked Jack, who had been allowed to come in to see his small sister. "It'd make you feel lots better." .-'."No' fretted Jean, "I don't, and when you knock my bed you make a hurt come back ' In my , head, , Please go away." ' Whereat Jack, discomfited, left the room with much dignity. His mother fol lowed him Into the hall and suggested that he go out Into the park and sit in the shade and read. She wag sorry for the lad's loneliness, but the sick baby needed her now When she returned to Jean, the child queried wistfully: ... "Won't the doctor come soon, Muv-ver?"- - " ,' "I hope so.; dear," answered the mother. Then she asked curiously: "Was he very nice to you, honey?"- "Yes, 'J affirmed the child. "Don't you like him, Muvver?" ,, "He's a very good doctor," the widow answered evasively.. She did not know If she liked him or not, and, In her soul, she felt that It would be he,- not she, who would arrange the relations between' them. It' was a new experience for her, a woman Whom men had always ad mired and deferred to, to, meet a man whose strength of character had so im pressed itself- upon her that she was not at all, certain that she could make him her friend, even If she tried. "Yes, .he's awfully nice," murmured Jean, drowsily, as she fell asleep. - J V V if Garlic Cures Consumption II Ireland. :, which - has . the honor of originating the. outdoor, cure .for jcon- j sumption ' 'and-- all -tubercular affections, now-comes forward with a direct spe cific! for the disease,, a thing'. which physi cians' have despaired of finding.

By EVELYN KODNER. : - , Somebody has said that the hand .Is the second face, and I believe If one has pretty1 hands one hal a good' right to tie proud of them, for there are more pretty faces than pretty hands in the world, &r)d it's much easier to beautify the face than to make the hand graceful and charming A : woman's hand haa so much to do. I mean of course, ,the average woman, who has to care for her house, to look after her children, and who baa her hand In 101 different things during the day. So It is no wonder that there are so few classically beautiful hands In the world. The hand that rocks the cradle may still be white and soft, but - when it shreds the codfish, blacks the stove, does the family mending and washes clothes besides, you can forgive it for looking worn at an early are. , . However, even housework no longer has terrors for the woman ( who wants to keep her hands pretty, and who knows how, for a cure has been found for al most all the troubles that beset , a busy pair of hands. ,'When a woman's hands gut very red for no apparent reason, she Is usually wearing some tight band around her body, either a. corset, that Is too Mti? or tight garters. Even tight shoes will make the hands' red,; and, of course, long immersion In cold or hot.' water will do the same thing.' Then again, when the hands grow red and -none f these causes are fhund, the person may have rheuma tism or gout, for it is one of the first signs of these troubles; and. of course, the cure has to be found at the doctor's office. ' '' If brie has any dirty work to do like polishing shoes, for Instances. - or the kitchen stove, and one cannot save one's finger from getting dirty, a little grease or lp.rd nifcbed around the flnsrer nails will keep the dirt from getting in them. , After the hands have been thoroughly washed they should 1 be dried with powdered starch, and -rometlmes it Is a good thing to use oatmeal, boiled and strained, instead of using soap.: Oatmeal makes the hands . nice and soft, and so will almond meat or bran. ' For the womari wnd "has much" house work to do, there are various k'nds of gloves to protect- the hands whllf do ing it, and if she .objects . to the odors which may linger on the skin, she can remove the unpleasant odor by rubbing them with powdered mustard or by put ting mustard In thr water In which the washes her hands. I have found that the best whitener for ordinary purposes is. plain lemon juice and the oil In lemon peel. This softens the akin and makes It delight ful to the touch. ' ' ' ; When your handt are very rough and you want to get them soft' In a very short time take a little sweet cream, cold cream, buttermilk or . butter, wash your hand thoroughly In warm water; then rub In any one of these creams you; may have whjle the hands are still wet ' Rub until there is nothing left to absorb; then wash off quick!) In warm water, just enough to do away with the sticky feeling whlrh is so un pleasant. People whose hands chap, very easily ought to do this every time the wash their hands, using nn Inexpensive cold cream, and a pure soap.

Before the days of the Hepburn bill we had a fine phraee, to-wlt; The Cour tesies of the Road." This meant a rail road pass. The ten dency of the times wiped out that par ticular kind of "courtesy," and" now the term means simply the good will which gentlemen al ways manifest to ward each other when they meet Six years ago the automobile was a plaything. Men who drove a , machine were more or less heroes; s.lso more or lees brigands. The spirit of the larrikin and the hoodlum sat at the wheel. If a farmer did not get out of the way quick , enough there Were ahouts ' of "Clear the track!" "'Don't you know arythlng?" "What's the matter with you?" "I will take a wheel off you It Is "the rule now of the good autolst never to use such language, nor- even .resent coarseWanguage and epithet when applied, by others. .... If you sit at a wheel, you cannot afforc( to lose your temper. AH of the nerves you possess should be used 'In carrying your machine through to safety. As for stinging somebody up with a few hot wordsthat is a thing of the past. The' traveller now no longer considers himself a section of the day of Judgment. We used to talk about the dangers of travel; now we are beginning to under stand Aristotle's dictum to Alexander the Great: "The enemies of an army are in its own camp." ,.' , A man's enemies are In his own heart; his enemies are his limitations, his im patience, his hot haste, his desire to get even, his fear of being injured or de frauded. Well haa it been said: "There is no devil but fear." There Is .something herolo about having sixty horsepower at your fingers tips, or reached by the pressure of the foot and yet never using this power to the limit. About it there Is a quality that makes you proud and gives a dignity which men without power never possess. It' so happens that the running of an automobile with this tremendous power within your reach tends to give a sort of freedom from all little perplexing cares.'

' There used to' be an old Quaker maxim "' running thus: "If I can da a kind act of say a kind word, let me say It now, fof I may not pass this way again." The autolst, however, realizes that he will pass this way again; also hundreds and thousands of other autolsts will pass'-'T this way again, and his endeavor ls'to" leave a kindly remembrance behind rather1,? than one of wrath or Indifference.

(Another of the beauties in Zlegfeld's "Winsome Widow" Companj . ) hair grow, Wejl, ' there , Is a simple remedy for that ft consists of a five cent piece of pumice bought at the drug store, and, rubbed on the arm In, this way,: , - , If your pumice stone is soft and fairly smooth, as it sometimes la, you won't need anything else but a ' little light rubbing . over the hair ? surface. ' But If the pumice stone is coarse and rough wet it a little with soapy Water, and then rub It br'skly and lightly in a cir cular manner oyer the skin on which the hair Is growing'. Tou wl'l soon wear off the hair, s.nd if you rub lightly you won't irritate the skin. If you do apply a little glycerine or cold cream. Most people can use glycerine on their hands and arm, though they cannot use it on their face; and it Is a good thing to have on one's washstand, for its constant use will keep the bands very nice and soft. ' ' - Probably the main reason why the skin of so many hands Is so coarse and ugly is because people- don't take time enough to dry their, hands properly, but hurry over them as best they may. .-The little white spots on the nails are due to poor circulation, - and the ridges on, the nails come from excess uric acid in the blood. ' The white spots occasionally come from bruises of bumps, and then they soon dixappear, but when they are the results of other troubles one must seek the rem edy elsewhere. ; . If you want to get your hands -very white, here is a paste which Isn't diffi cult to make and' which keeps them In good condition. Take about two ounces of almond meal and four ounces of sweet olve oil, four ounces of strained honey and a quarter of the yolk of an ' egg. Melt the honey In- a double botler, pour the almond meal In It and mix it thor oughly, then beat In the yolk of the egg, add the oil drop by drop and knead until a firm paste ts produced. When the paste 1 cool, apply to the hands and wear gloves over It. These cosmetic gloves, as they are called, which come for tho pui-pose, are very large, chamolo skin gloves, with several holes punched in the palm for ventilation. An ordinary glove will do if It Is clean, but of course It. must be several sizes larger than one would wear ordinarily ; ' I'eople no longer wear gloves that are too small for them, not only because they are ugly, but because they deform the hand and give them a puffy, unpleas ant appearance. Ji large hand looks smaller In a loose glove than . It dues prcesed Into -one half a size -too small. The Mind's Office Boys Jr.. Selected by EDWIN MARKHAM. t William Walker Atkinson, In a volume, "Memory, How to Develop, Train and Use It," proves that a good memory Is not necessarily born with us; but may be achieved by proper effort. These Bprlghtly paragraphs are suggested. The subconscious region of the mind-1 this memory region may be thought of as a great record file, wtth an Intricate system of indexes and office boys whose business it Is to file away the records, and to Index them, and to find them when needed. The records record only what we have Impressed upon them by the attention, the degree, of depth and clearness, depending entirely upon the degree of attention which we bestowed upon the. original Impression, We - can never expect to have the office boys of the memory bring up anything that they have not been given to file away. The Indexing and cross-references are sun piled by the association existing between the various impressions. The more cross-references of associations that are connected with an idea thought or Im pression that is filed away in the mem ory, the greater the chances of It being found readily whenwanted. - .' ' "These little office boys of the memory are an Industrious and willing lot of little chaps; but like all boys they do their best work when kept In practise. Idle ness and lack of exercise cause them to become .slothful and careless and forget ful of the reeords under this charge. .A little fresh exercise snd work soon- take the cobwebs out of their grains, and they spring eagerly to their tasks. They have , a tendency to remember, on their own part; and when a certain record Is called for often they grow accustomed to Its place, and can find it without re ferring to the Indexes at 8.IJ.

Often, however, after they (, have, told you that they could not find a .' thlng.and you have left the place In disgust, they will continue, their search and hours afterward will surprise you by j handing you the desired Idea, or impres-:' slon, which they had found careleesly Indexed or Improperly tiled away.
