Feel at Home
The young man with the maroon
necktie was absentmindedly thought
ful amid the idle "chatter. Suddenly
"It's queer how time changes a fel
low," he said. "I've noticed, it in lots
of my friends. They change their
ideas, you know. I've noticed that if
they don't get married ridiculously
early they generally wait till it is
"What a great truth!" cried the
young man with the gray tie. "If it
isn't dark it is sure to be light! Even
"Let him alone!" ordered the,
hostess. "But why matrimony?" she
inquired of the young man with the
maroon tie. "We were talking of golf,
"Were we?" asked the absentminded
one. "I don't believe a man really;
falls in love after he is 30, say. Do
you? Lose his head and all that, you'
know or be willing to fly to the end
of the earth,, regardless of his next
week's business engagements. He
uses sense. And you can't use sense
about falling in love!"
"Few people do," observed the hos
tess. "Look at the individuals they
pick out to fall in love with! You
aren't doing it, are you, Richard?"
"Of course not," said the young man
with the maroon tie, gruffly. "How
absurd! I was just speaking general
ly. I observe things, you know. And
a fellow doesn't feel sure he's got the
right girl unless he does lose his head
a bit, does he?"
"Why, I can remember," went on
the young man with the maroon tie,
"when I was 19 or 20 of two love af
fairs, in both of which I was clean
crazy. I was so desperately mad over
those girls at separate times, of
course that life absolutely was not
worth living contemplated apart from
them! I remember I wanted to die
.and so avoid the dark and dreary fu
ture stretching before me when Eve
lyn turned me down. And it was ac
tual anguish, too! Now, if I can laugh
at anything as real as that just be
cause a few years have intervened,
how the dickens could I ever be sure
any infatuation I might tumble into
now wasn't just as ephemeral?"
"I thought," observed the young
man with the maroon tie, "you said
jou weren't personally interested in
the subject. It begins to look to
"Rubbish!" interrupted the young
man with the maroon tie. "It's far
thest from my thoughts. I don't know
anybody I care particularly ' about.
though I do know some mighty nice
girls! You just change, that's all! It
becomes a matter of calm judgment
and and er all that. You stop to
think whether the girl is really suited
to you and consider her disposition
and tastes, and her mother, and wheth
er you like her brother.
"Now, that destroys all the romance,
doesn't it? It makes the whole affair
humdrum and casual. There's abso
lutely nothing spontaneous about it.
Why, 1 remember when Evelyn was
the light of the world to me I
wouldn't have cared if her mother had
smoked a pipe or made platform
speeches, and as for Evelyn's tastes
well, to this day I know not whether
she inclined to Wagner or ragtime, or
preferred Shakespeare to Laura Jean
Libbey. I didn't care and that's the
point. I would care now. You
couldn't consider a wife without con
sidering what your friends would think
of her. And you want to be sure, too,
that you really care!"
This sounds suspicious," observed
"Not at all!" protested the young
man with the maroon tie. "Not at
all! I just got started on this subject,
that's all! No, I don't think I shall
ever marry. In the first place, I'm
not in love, and I don't think I ever
"I really can't take such an absorb
ing interest in any girl nowadays that
I miss my meals in my abstraction.
And, somehow, I wouldn't' die for any
of them. Yet I know two or three
fascinating girls. I don't think it
would be wise to run the chance of
making yourself and the girl miser
able when you weren't quite sure. Do
you think there is anything in this
theory of learning to care more after
you are married? It doesn't seem ra
tional to me. I suppose the only real
ly happy man is the one who marries
Evelyn when he is 20 years old and
too young to know better."
"But consider what Evelyn might be
when you were 30!" suggested the
hostess. '"Probably not at all a con
genial person or the one you would
then pick out!" .
"That makes it all the more compli
cated, doesn't it?" said the young man
in the maroon tie, mournfully. "A
fellow doesn't stand much show any
way you put it. This falling in love
is all nonsense, anyway! I'm glad I've
kept cut of it!"
"See here," said the hostess, "don't
you feel blue. She's all right the.
right one, I mean. You just go ahead!"
"Yes, go on and take the plunge!"
advised the young man with the gray
tie. "And meanwhile, tell us her
name among friends, you know!"
The young man with the maroon tie
tried to look indignant, but succeeded
only in looking foolishly pleased.
"Oh, come now!" he said. "1 don't
see why you two should think well,
maybe I will have something to tell
you soon. That is, I rather hope so.
I I'm going ' to see her to-morrow
The Hardy Glove
"It was perfectly . dreadful!" said
the girl with the imitation Irish lace
collar, as she straightened the bolts of
ribbon on her counter.
"It must 'a' been funny! What was
it?" said the girl who was marking the
"I just shriek whenever I think of
it!" pursued the girl who was straight
ening the ribbons. "Him calling me
up like that when I hadn't seen him
in such a time! You see, I've been
keeping steady company now with Mr.
Sykes for several weeks, so Art and
me haven't seen much of each other."
"I think Art is better looking than
James Sykes," interrupted the girl
who was marking tags. "He has more
"Well, he hasn't got the salary if he
has the style!" said the young woman
who was straightening the ribbons.
"Not that money makes a particle of
difference to me. but there's much
more to Mr. Sykes than you'd think.
And any one who makes fun of his
nose doesn't know what she's talking
about, and "
"1 ain't got no grudge against Mr.
Sykes' nose," said the girl who was
marking tags. "He can have any kind
of a nose he wants and welcome.
What'd he do?"
"Oh, Mr. Sykes didn't do anything,"
said the girl who was arranging rib
bons. "You see, he generally comes
over on Wednesday evening, so when
somebody called me on the phone I
s'posed it was Mr. Sykes.
"'Hello!' he said. 'Going to be
home this evening? All right, I'll be
"I had on my blue dress and I got
out the chafing dish and the stuff to
to make fudge. You wouldn't believb
how fond of chocolate fudge Mr. Sykes
is! He likes it with nuts in it, and
"So does everybody else," said thi
other girl, ruthlessly. "He ain't so
different from the rest of the world
when you come right down to it, even
though! you may think so!"
"Well, anyhow," pursued the girl
with the ribbons, "when I heard the
bell ring I ran out part way down the
stairs to meet him. He sort of likes
to have me act as though he was wel
come, you know."
"Huh!" said the other girl. "Why
don't you have it woven on a door
"Maybe you think you're funny!" in
dignantly said the young woman at
the ribbon counter. "Just as I made
the turn in the stairs I ran right into
him. "Xnd who do you suppose it was?
It was Art!"
"Well," said the other girl, pausing
in the operation of marking tags,
"what'd you do?"
"If you could 'a' seen his face!" gig
gled the girl at the ribbons. "Sort o'
bewildered and scared and uncertain!
There was I rushing down the stairs
in my eagerness to meet him, as he
supposed, and I guess he thought at
first I'd been just sitting at home all
these months waiting to hear him ring
the door bell! Why, I just hung hold
of the newel post and burst out laugh
ing, and after I started I couldn't
stop! I simply shrieked! I wish you
could 'a' seen him!"
"What'd he do?" asked the other
"He got hold of my shoulder and
shook me and wanted to know what
on earth was the matter," giggled the
girl at the ribbon counter.: "And of
course I couldn't tell him that I wasn't
expecting him. He kept asking what
was so funny, and whenever he did
I'd start to laughing again. When he
saw the things out for the fudge it
sort of proved that I did expect him,
but then he'd get doubtful again.
"'Lizzie,' says he, finally, after fig
uring it all out, T bet you thought I
was someone else!'
"'Why, Art!' I cried, just as mourn
ful as I could, 'didn't you telephone
you were coming?' And then I got to
laughing again. .
"He's bright. Art is. 'But I forgot
to say who I was,' he insisted.
"Then I told him that I'd know his
voice among a thousand and he., told
me I was just as much of a jollier as
ever, and most of the fudge boiled
over, and it was just like old times.
Art got real cheerful until I took some
of the fudge and put it away, because
I wanted to save it for Mr. Sykes. I
told him I was saving it for father.
" 'Father be blowed!' Art said then.
'Your father'd rather have some fine
cut any day than chocolate fudge!
You're stringing me, Lizzie you've
got some one else up your sleeve!'
"I thought I might as well make a
good job of it, so I told him solemn
like that there wasn't another man on
earth but himself, honest!"
"Did he believe you?" inquired the
girl who was marking tags.
"I think he had his doubts," giggled
the girt who had finished assorting the
ribbons. "But he is coming to see me
According to the highest authorities,
heraldry finds its starting point in the
totemism of prehistoric man., In the
barbaric custom of painting or carv

sides of canoes, weapons, pillars in
front of houses, etc., and in tatooing
it on the various parts of the body,

signia that are so precious to the
