I Helen straightened down the rug, adjusted th blind exactly aeon with th window sill and save one mora glance In th closet to ee If th shWs were dry. Everything had been taken out that morning and Delia had washed oft all the shelves. The bureau drawers, too, had been emptied and lined with clean whlta paper. And now th room was all ready for Its new occupant, .who bad said sha would coins about i. .. . Eight dollars a week! All morning a it.i.n worked sha nan een imnauia hat aha might do with that money. With her training In economy sh could make tt weak go Try far. And It was this that bad dadoed her to take lira. Morrison In spit of th feeling that she wsa not at all the peraon sh h'.v. chosen for a roomer. But after all sh would be there very little.

As yet- no on but Dell knew of Vila mnm ranting" venture. And until sh trf tried It for a week or so. Helen did not want any on to know. Warren, of coarse, ws not to know at alL Ula last letters Inferred that he wouldyhav to lav out there at least two months lamer. And Helen had rented th room with th understanding that It might be for only two tnontha. Two months at W a week would be a little over 164. To Helen that seemed Just now a great deal of money, and worth all the posslbl discomforts of having a roomer. At leait Warren would have to send her n more money for psrsonal ex penses. Th ts would mora than meet everything sh would need for clothe and ertraa for herself ana winuraa. It was almost before Mrs. Morrison came. Delia opened the door, and aa Helen heard her hurrying through the ball to her room, ah oould not help won dering where sh wsa going to hav her dinners. She had made no Inquiry aa te any restaurant ar boarding bouse la th neighborhood. But perhaps sh would dine somewhere downtown before ebe ram noma. And this evening sh would probably apend in unpacking and flxln up her things. - ...... Helen wss lust finishing bar own sim ple dinner when there was a knock an the dining-room door. 8b opened tt to a vision of whit furs and satin. For a eecond she hardly recognised Mrs. Mor rison in th long whit opera doak and liken searf wear ner hair. , "Can you ten roe the nearest pnvoa to I hone for a taxIT" v Helen flushed. In the few tiroes they had ever bad a taxi, Warren had or dered It. - - Why. I den t think I know th number. but the telephone boy will probably know - "Ob, yea where did you say your phone was? Ota bar tt la," seeing tt an th wall by th hall door. -Hello.- Will tow order me a taxi? Tea, right away." Ami then turning back to Helen r "Ob. Mrs. Curtis, may I ask you to put a pitcher for drinking water la my room? I always hava to hav it by my bed st-nfgbt." -Why. certainlr, "Thar ehould hava been one in titers." Ih a few momenta th taxi waa an nounced and Mrs. Morrison hurried down. Helen hsd been mildly astonished at tha elaborate evening gown and tha order fer the taxi, but aha was much mora astonished whan a little later sh went lata tha room to take th pitcher. Never had Sha seen a place In such cyclonic disorder. (rh,blg trunk stood gaplngly open. Th thra trays Were on th floor, and dresss. waists, hats and sllppsrs were strewn over bed nd chairs sad tabla Everything waa covered with a confusion of femlnln apparel, la her hurry to find what ahs wanted. It waa evident that Mr. Morrison bad simply pulled things out and thrown them any where. Helen gased about la wonderment Never had aha seen aa many satin Up per most of them soiled and never so many la borate evening gowns none of them fresh. The bureau was simply covered with bottles and Jars and boxes of various toilet prepartlona. And what- aa that carious attachment screwed into on of th electrta light soeketsT Then Helen sai thai u waa a, surltng iron heater for two Irona lay beside It. A large eiderdown puff lay outside of Its whits Ivory box filled with pink powder. And titer war comb and bruahes and maai cure .article. Helen had probably never seen so many things far the toilet, and oertalnly never In such painful disorder. 8h longed to straighten up tha room. All of her neat and orderly Instincts were outraged by such disorderly con. fusion. How could any one rhr hk that? For to rumpled appearance of every thing showed that thla waa their usual condition. : , Helen stepped over a pair of blu satin sllppsrs to place th pitcher on n stand by th bad. then turned out th light and left th room. Later, aa ahs brasned her ban- for th night before her owa orderly bureau. with Its few simple toilet articles ar ranged la neat precision, sh wondered how Mrs, Morrison could sleep la a room Ilka that. - Sha herself oould never go t bed until all her clothes were carefully put away. Sha thought of how thla very trait had so often Irritated Warren. How he used to roar at her to cam to bed. Even now ehe could bear his "For Heaven e sake turn out that light and corns to bed! Ton always potter around half th night I want to get soma sleep." And yet If he waa only here! Sha knew sha would welcome his most curt impatience If only ha could be with her. For th moment sh forgot even her hurt prld and flerco indignation at hi recent letters about tha expenses, "b forgot everything except her lor for Mm. Aa ahs reached up to turn out the light sh stand through tha dark nee toward tbs bedits smooth emptiness filled her with a keener sens of ner lona liness. It was after midnight when sh waa aroused fey th speotng of the hall door. In tha half daaa of tha sudden awakea- Ing-for a second her heart leaped with tha thought that It waa Wsrrsn! 8 he tared through th darkness toward tha door expecting htm to enter! But as th etepe passed by down th hall In a flash cam back th sickening realisation of things aa they were. It waa only tha woman to whoa sha had ranted bar spar roam!

The arstem that 1 hava adopted la teaching swimming b vary simple," says Or. Kalsmltb. "it simply, goes back to th favodatloa arln clea. All animals, excepting- man. swim In th same position that they walk. Teaching man to swtm resolves Itself Into two factors. First to keep tha body In a horizontal poatttoa. and tha second principl rests on fh fact that when a heavy body strikes the water In a slanting position with aa Impetus almoet psrallet with th surface It m almost Im possible for the body to sink."

Poof a mere breath blows them sll away. Toa'U want all theee things back again some day, but then It will be too late. Whiff them away now It la your fancy. s . . . Ths thing that irks about year point af view Is that yow do not want to pay tow your fancy and pay la the right eon of coin. Already yu begin to whimper, and you havea't avea begun to write th check that will discharge that debt. ' There' are other who would Ilk to do th ssm sort of thing, but lack of your courage? Quite so. I've seen ths time when what the preacher said msde me want to give it wild shriek and run -along the back of the news in a kind of frantic deri sion. But I knew If I did that sort of thing some on would hav pnaencaa of mind enough to call the patrol wagon snd hsve me locked up, so I refrained from following my fancy. i Muit I. therefore, sit In patleoos, while some one who dwsn't remember the padded cell In time whoops la my ear? No, I may want to scream ar. urtoward seasons, but so long as I da, not do It, I have the right to lasts Is very cross. It appears, because th papers print article about blm and bis somewhat peculiar menage, and the neighbors gosalp. Odd people, neigh bors. They do gossip bout things like that, and you can't stop them to save your Ufa. Society Is all says ths . maa. "All hypoc risy. Why should w enidf our selves to gratify so ciety?" Why. Indeed; oh sane and asta phi losopher, why In deed? Tou and your foolish little affairs mean very little to the world, why not let you go your own foolish wsy and forget all about you? ilerause, dear, unreaaonsble sir, you didn't go about this particular adven ture that way. You, yourself, called the whole world's sttentlon to your little peccadillo. "Stsnd aelde.'" you said. In effect, to sll civilised idesa. "Stsnd aside. I am a law unto myself, and so k, .it men be." But the good old patient world, which will forgive so that all uch persona aa do much, forget so often, retueei to aalde at your blading, ana so bi " fhl tOO. "Other men do the rsme things and are forgiven." When they repent, yee. But do you Intend to go that? You cannot wear a wreath of crimson rosea and expert the world to treat you ae a pile-rim In sackcloth and ashes. Other men msy hsve surh affairs, but there Is Just this difference: Other men usually have ths grace or the common sense to be ashamed of them, tou are proud of your folly. That's why you must be whipped for tt. "Society Is all wrong." Of coarse-t always la. Every one and every tiling is wrong but you snd your on selfish wsy. The stars thst swing along tha shining pathway of tha mysterious skies ought to twinkle with due gravity whenever this man's momentous sffsirs of the heart are discussed. No levity. Jupiter, look aertous, Msdsra Venue. Tou are creating a wrong Impression along the milky way. Tlie moon to all wrong, too. She doesn't shin long enough. And, pooh. whet a fool of an Idea thla winter thins la anyhow. Winter luves viol eta and you are fond of roses. Let's abolish winter and set the posies blowing In January lust to please you and your fancy. the discomfort and alarm of sober dt- lsens, thould be taken car of In tb usual way. .. What If w all did whatever we wanted to do? A nice world we should find tt, my masters. What would you do,, fir tastaace. If the man next door to you. Mr. Fancy Follower, should fall la love with your own particular lady? Would yon lean over the fence and say, "Bless yon am children." when you raw which wajt the wooing wind blew? Oh. yes, of course, 'you say yon would but. honestly, now, would you? s Pooh, pooh, Mr. Architect, why dent you face the truth snd be don with tt? You ar making a toot of yourself anuV the world is quite right to laugh at you. Some day, when your folly has earned Ueeif out, as all such fogies, do, yoWll' wonder why yea didn't have some frvend kind enough to lock yoa ap la Mattra wan alth the rest of the tentrjerantsntal fcik till you had a chance to cess to. It will be too late then, entirely too lata, and then how Ma you'll be when-. ever you think of th way yoa are talk Ing now about poor, cod decent. apoK ogetic society. Occasionally a spinster advances atep by step until ah become a stepmother. Some women are so eccentric that thev actually say things when they tail.
