"v "Flvs dollars?" asked Helen In dismay. "Will It b that much? With thlt drop aklrt and all the lace on the waist?" The woman took the dreaa from the boi In which Helen had brought It and shook it out on the . counter. "Why, wa never clean amy dresa with a drop leea than IS." Helen hesitated. "I'm afraid that's more than I care to p a y." flushing slightly. "I didn't think It would be over three." "You couldn't get It cleaned any where for three," sniffed the woman, haughtily, putting the dress back In the box. "Why, wa get tJ for a plain white slip Ilka that," pointing to whit mull dress In the ease. Meekly Helen took the box and hurried home. This waa the aeoend cleaner's she had beep to. and they both wanted IS. Bhe felt It Would be useless t try to get It cleaned at' any good place for less and (ha was afraid to risk the oheaper ones. In her own' room she took out the dress and spread It on the bed. Whst eould she do with It? It was bar best afternoon gown a pastel blue crepe meteor. She needed It desperately. But It was too soiled to wear It as It was-and she couldn't pay 15 to have It cleaned. Slnos (ha humiliating letter from 'Warren about the expenses. Helen had grimly resolved to spend not t cent on herself pen, gonallv. ' Money for the house and Winifred she must take from hlin. But money for her self -she would do without until she her self could earn It. She hsd written War ren that she hsd resolved to be Inde pendent of him as far as her personal expenses were concerned, and this resolve she Intended to keep. But first of sll she must get her clothes In ehepe. Whatever new adventure any woman contemplates, her first thought Is always to first put her clothes In order. And so Helen was now going over her limited wardrobe. 6be had had so little In the last year, and yet she thought bit terly. Warren hsd accused her of ex travagance. This little blue afternoon gown she had wasted to have cleaned for some time, hut hsd put It off. hoping to have It done soma week when the expenses were less than usual. Abov everything else Helen loved her gown fresh and dainty. And now this must be cleaned. She could no longer -wear H as It was. With a sudden Impulse she took it out to the kitchen. "Delia, do you think we could clean this dress here?" Delia looked at it doubtfully. "1 dunno, ma am." 'Well. I'm going to try. Therea a bottle of cleaning fluid heer that Mr. Cur tis brought home for his ties, and we've never used It. I'll try that on some of the worst places, and if It's good we csn get enough more to sponge over the whole dress." "I dunno, ma'am. I don't take much stock In them cleaning fluids. They most always leaves a worse spot than they takes out." But Helen was not to be discouraged by Delia's lack of enthusiasm. Delia was never enthusiastic about anything that might Involve any work on her part. It took several moments to find the cleaning fluid among the bet, lea on the top shelf In the bath room. "Why Delia, this sheif is :.!-;! with dust Get a pan of water an! wipe it oft and these bottles, too they're covered. " And Delia grumblingly obeyed. This was why sha always looked with disap proval on .any nf Helen's ventures t.1ey usually ended by making more work for her. " 'Cleaning Fluid." " Jie'.en read aloud from the label. " 'Cleans the most deli cate fabrics without Injur... " 'Directum Moisten a soft flsnnel cloth with the Cleaning Fluid and gently rub the article to be cleaned. Do not confine rubbing to the sailed spot; by going over more of the surface no rlnx will be left. Will not change color or injure the most delicate fabric. Caution: Do not use before an open Tre or gas. - The Cleaning Fluid Co.' " Helen first covered the dining room larger. Hurriedly aha poured out half of the bottle and went over one whole breadth of the skirt, hoping that by going over a large surface and rubbing It dry the rings would be cleared away. Hut wherever she sponged with the fluid It left the same mottled, streaked appear ance, die used the other halt of the bottle trying to Improve It, but only made it worse. Almost In tears, she shook the dress out over a chair. Had she mined It? Oh, It she only hadn't touched It. At least sha could have worn It at night even It it waa soiled. Bat now, with one whole breadth streaked and mottled, she could never wear it. "1 told you, ma'am. I didn't take no stock In them cleaning fluids." said Delia. "They ain't Don of them no good." And then, aeeiim Helen was al most In tears, aha added consolingly: "But I gueaa you can take them streaks out If you dip the whole thing In gaso lineIt's much better than all them cleaning fluids, and cheaper, too."' "Oh, can IT' asked Helen eagerly. "Why didn't I think of gasoline? But where can ws get It enough to dip the whole dress In? ' "Paint store. I'll taka two of them gallon water bottles and get 'em full." t Half an hour later Delia returned with the big bottlea ot gasoline weighing down the basket on her arm. "My, that's heavy," she grumbled. "And I had to go three places 'fore they'd sell It to me." Helen to kolt Into the bathroom, where there would be no danger of tire. Empty ing ono of the bottlea Into a large dish pan, ahe dipped the whole dresa In. The odor was sickening. Not wanting It to get through the bouse, ahe kept the bathroom dour closed. In a few minutes tha drees hsd soaked up tha whole panful, and she had to pour In the other bottle. Most of this, too, was quickly soaked up. and the rest was almost black. Bhe tried to rinse It up and down, but there was not enough gaso line left for tliat. The fumes were mora snd more sickening. She was growing taint ' and disiy. as though ahe waa being chloroformed. And her hands were red and smarting. Almost overpowered with the fumes, she still tried to swish tha dress around. It s only a black, wet masa now, and she could nut tell whether or not the streaks were out. Vet. with desperate determina tion sha kept at It. It would be bard to get more gasoline, and now that sha bad begun ahe must do It as well as she could. Bo ahe shaok and awtshed the dresa ebout until she could stand It no longer. Then she opened the bathroom door and staggered out, the wet dress on her arm. "Get a coat-hanger, quick. Delia, Hang this up somewhere." "Why. you're as white as paper, ma'am; what's the matter?" "Oh. the gasoline-It waa awful In there. Hera hang this up quii k-" Delia took the dripping dresa and hung It on the wooden hanger. And Helen fell almost fainting on the couch. "Open the window Delia. Oh, I'm so sick." Delia threw open the window and dragged the couch before It. Helen, deathly white, was lying almost In a stupor. Snut up In the bathroom, with the fumes from two gallona of gasoline, the effect had been aa drugging and much more sickening than from gaa or chl-iroform. Thoroughly frightened. Delia wanted to send for a doctor. But In spite ot the stupor, the word "doctor' brought to Helen the thought that had dominated her through It ail, "the saving of ex pense." "No, no." she protested faintly. "I don't need a doctor. I'll be all right In a few momenta Aa she lay on the couch by the open window the horrible sense of nausea gradually parsed away. Slowly the fresh air revived her. blew away the worst effects ot the gasoline, but left her with a throbbing sine headache, which lasted the rest of the day. Delia brought some cold cream for her hands, which were still red and smarting from the gisoline. At length she rat up, dltxlly. "Rrlng me the dres, FKIs. Let me see bow it came out.' "Walt till you ftcl better." urged Delia. "You're dead white yet, and it ain't dry nohow." "Oh. it must be dry br this time. Bring 1: in I want to ee- it.' Keluctantly Delia brought the dress, laid it on a chair by the couch and dia- A pone nrukiu'; 7MAT MISU& TeTHrM OF TVhf 0 tMvH As. fit RATTJE BlA(M60-gUT VeHeftfc OH Vieetiata;.

I do not think any young lady should msrry unless she knows something ot the art of cooking.
