.Warren Comes Home with a Headache and Helen Does
Not Send Her Letter.

jDear Motheri You write that my last

A'lnfred and the apartment, and that it
'ia been months

every day we are
growing farther I
and farther apart.
For a few months

to be gentle and

It has been days since he has given me
l voluntary caress, and he only tolerates
nine. Sometimes I wonder If he loves

lot love me, at least It is not because he
loves any one else. He is absolutely

When I thlnK of how many husbands
are affectionate to their wives and jet
.lnfuliliful to them I wonder which la
I ho better way. I wonder If those wives
would not gludly change with me, If they
would not prefer the Royalty of their
husbands to any protestations of love.
L'uppose It Is Warren's nature to be
Id. lust as It Is mine to be affectionate.
And I am trylnit to become reconciled to
that. But his irritability is very hard
to bear. It seems to me that I spend
most of my time trying to appease him,
to keep him from being annoyed at some
trivial thing or from being argry with
a pitiful commentary on Married
that a wife must be constantly
ne to keep her husband in a good
humor, and yet that ts what it has come
. Mother, sometimes I wonder It we have
it be m five or tea? Do you suppose, the
Una will come when we wilt not be to
gether? Oh, I'm afraid to think of what
the future nay hold. If there was only
I something to look forward to, something
I which might happen, which would brlnj
as Dearer together.
Before wmifred cam I thought that

Helen darkened the room, took the un
comfortable velvet Bofa cushions off the
couch, and put In their place a cool linen
pillow from the bed room.
Warren, who had go'ten Irtto his smok
ing jacket and slippers, now lali down
and she covered him with a steamer rug.
"Oh, I don't want that thing." throw
ing It off. "It's too hot and wooly."
"Then I'll get something lighter."
She brought out a silken comfort and
tucked It about him.
"Oh, my dear, your face Is so hot
I'm afraid you're feverish. Don't you
want nie to put a cool cloth on your

tient. "1 told you I just wanted to sleep.
And you see that nono of those Infernal
bells wake me."
"All right, dear I'll muffle the bells,
and we'll bo very quiet."
She went out, closing the door after
"Mr. Curtis has come home with a
very bad headache," going Into the
kitchen where Delia was Ironing. He's In
the 'front room trying to sleep. Now be
very careful If you go through the hall
and don't "make any moist. " "'
Taking some soft tlttsue paper, Helen
muffled both tho telephone and the door
bell. Then she went back to the kitchen
to tell Delia not to put on the roast;
that Bhe would ordar a chicken and some
asparagus, two things Warren was es
pecially fond of.
"And never mind about the dessert,
Delia, I'll make that myself."
When Helen went back Into the sitting
room her unfinished letter lay on tne
desk before hei. She took It up, reread It,
then slowly tore It across. Then she tore
it again and still again, until It lay In
small strips before her. Then taking a
fresh sheet of paper she wrote:
"Monday, Oct. 23. Dear Mother: I wa
plad to get your letter this morning. You
say I have written the briefest notes of
late, but that is because we have been
moving and I have been so very busy. If
I write mostly abojt Winifred It Is be
cause I know you are so much interested
in her. Hut I will try to do better after
this and write you longer letters.
I am glad to hear that Kdith Btod-
dard Is to marry George Clapp. You say
his father has taken him into the store
now. Well, that ought to have a steady
ing effect. I do hope he will make Kdlth
a good husband.
"You wrote that Uncle Tolllver has
bought the old Melvln place, but you do
not say whether they are to move there
or not. I'm afraid Aunt Lydla would
never be satlsfiod out there.
"I have just finished a little linen
dress for Winifred and have trimmed
It with the crochet lace you vent me. I
had enough for the skirt, neck and
sleeves, but need just five Inches more
to go around the little yoke. But I'm
going to crochet that myself, the pattern
looks very easy and I think by raveling
back a scallop I can get It What thread
did you use? It looks ilke forty, but I'm
" I have a new shirtwaist pattern that
I lika very much. I have cut It off and
am sending It to you. You will see It's
very simple and it fits very well.
Warren has just coqie home with a bad
headache and la lying down In the front
room. I must stop now to make some
wino jelly In time to4ave It well Iced.
Even if he does not want any dinner,
perhaps he will eat soma of that.

, f hers was a sudden sound in the hall.
.It' en look up startled. Surely it could
not b Warren. It was not yet 4.
Sie ran to the door. Warren stood with
bis. back to her, putting his gloves In the
pocket of his overcoat, which he had just
hung on the ha'.l rack.
"Why, Warren, has anything hap
"Happened? Can't a men ome home

"Why. yes, of course, 'dear, but you
never come home so early?"
"Well. I've got a ripping headache to

"Oh. dear. I'm so sorry! Can't I di

and lovely enough to fill the while situa
tion. Hera Is a brief outline of what a young
wife of this type rould, and would, do. If
she held this Ideal in mind.
Her home might consist of four rooms
only, or It might consist of a three-story
house. If she employed help It would
still ho her own thinking, and her own
taste, which ruled.
Hho would begin by planning to make
rata room aa hoiwj and attrarUre as
hiT Income ami time would permit; keep
ing comfort always In the foreground;
and developing the rraldrnce Into a ren
ter for love and happiness and peace.
Bhe would have color schemes for each
room; and the little articles of adornment
would ail possess a meaning. There
would be nothing useless or Irritating;
and there would he nothing Inconveni
ent In the home.
Her tahlo would be a poem of pretty
linen and flowers, and china to suit her
needs. All these things are to be found
today at small expense, by one who has
the taste and desire for thorn. The food
She put upon hvr table would be pre
pared understanding and with Interest
and affection. Hlie herself would be the
most attractive object In the home; and
If obliged to do her own work, in work
ing garb, she would never be Keen with
untidy hair or soiled neckwear.
A daughter . of a well-to-do profes
sional man, who had never learned
dnmestlo work, married and faced her
new life with a very limited Income.
The young husband was Just from busi
ness college, and beginning on a small
salary. The wife Insisted upon having a
home, and the tiny apartment which
their means permitted has grown Into a
very Jewel bog under the hsnds of ths
young woman. Bhe has studied the
chemical value of food, as well aa cook

and what are your books; and she has found It an easy
task (with love as a teacher) to nourish
her husband's system with good, appe
tising food, In make her table attractive,
and to be always a pleasing sight to
Pesides this, she finds time for study
and for reading, and Is growing mentally.
"I do not find my housekeeping the least
tax or strain," she says, "becsuse I have
systenmtlsed the work; and I fully enjoy
seeing how much I can aooomptlsh In the
line of home-making, and each week lay
ing nslde a little of my husband's sal
ary." This young woman was born wholly
feminine. Hhe wns born to love and be
loved by a man; and to find her happi
ness within the four walls of a home.S
Hut there are many other bright, beauti
ful and charming girls today who were
not born with this temperament. They
tin vi. perhaps, Inherited an active father's
restless desire to be doing things out In
the big world; or they have been men- '
tally marked by a dissatisfied mother,
who suffered from the failure of a hus
band to provide properly tor her before
the birth of the daughter.
Or they have beon thrown upon the
world to support themselves early, and
have learned the pleasure of Independ
ence, and cannot endure the Idea of hav
ing to loan upon another, even a hus
band, for money.
I To such young women (and such I
Judge Is the author of the letter quoted
above) It would be folly to say, "You
must give up your work and turn your
self Into the domestic angel. Tou must
abundon any Idea of taming money your
self." It would be worse than folly to Insist
upon this; for unless the taste and Uk
Inclination accompany the work it will
be a failure. Just as Is the attempt of
many parents to make muslcluns of
children who have no talent for, and mi
Interest In, inusln.
When a young Woman bus won a place
for hrrtiult in any position where she
finds hupptnesH and good remuneration,
and when she desires to retain thst posi
tion after marriage, It Is a sure Indication
that she was Intended for a wage earner,
Innteud of a dependent upon the bounty
It Is little short of crucifixion for such
a woman to be compelled to acoopt the
quiet domestlo role.
JKvery woman baa a right to make the
most of herself. Ixive is not love when It
demands that a woman give up her aspir
ations for growth and limit her outlook
on life. - Out a great many women who
are striving to be wage and salary earn
ers today, with an Impression thut they
sre developing to Oiwr beat possibilities,
would be much further toward the goal
of actual development had they chosen to
remain at home and think and study and
create that rare and much needed thing
an ideal home.
It, of course, takes two to make an
Ideal home. But many a masterful man
Is marred by having his wife the finan
cial power In the home. II loses the
spirit of the protector and provider and
ceases to think of himself as necessary
to the maintenance of his family.
In all these questions the particular
temperament of the two parties Inter
ested must be studied and understood be
fore any counsel of value can be given.
There Is little great, absorbing, all-be-stowing
tove to be found today between
men and women. When It Is found, every
question regarding the home, the habits
and the occupation of both husband and
wife Is settled by the wonderful mentor-
