"Here's a package, mam WW,"
Delta, putting th i parcel on the table
"Oh, yea, thoae are the towels -1 got
yejterdsy." And Helen, who was pressing
out tome of Warren'a lies, act down the
Iron and want In

But there waa la

uaually under tha paper that lined her
lower bureau drawer.
But now, to her horror, when aha drew
out the drawer and felt under tha paper
nothing waa there? Hurriedly aha took
ever tyhing oat and lifted up tha paper
but atUl no algn of tha bill.
Could ithe have put It between eome of
the clothes Inatead of under the paper
She unfolded and shook out each gar
ment, end then took the drawer out en
tirely and looked back ot It.
Whan Delia came to the door wondering
what 'kept her ao long, Helen waa anting
on the floorr with everything dragged
out of the drawef and piled In confusion
"Why. ma'am, the man's waiting for
hla money t"
"On. yes, I know but I put a bill hare
and now I can't find It!" exciterly.
"Have yon any money, Delia? ray him If
you can and I'll give It to you In the
Delia, went into her own room to get
the money and Helen again shook out
each article, again looked behind, the
drawer and around the floor In the futile,
nervous way that women have In search

Where could It be? Could she have
put it In one of the other drawers? Then
she looked under the paper ot the other
three .Arawert. under the paper on her
closet shell. In the blue vase on the front

she had hidden bllla,
"Do you want me to leave them Irons
on, ma'am? Is yon going to finish the
ties?" ssked Delia.
"Oh, yea, r 11 press the rest ef them
but I must find tbla money first."
For the next hour she tore out every.
thing la a feverish, hurried search. And
at length she found It In the bottom of
her glove bos In the top drawer. She
had never put It there before and she
didn't remember doing so now. But, oh,
what a relief to find It!
It waa at dinner that evening that War
ren 'asked abruptly: "Man come to Ox
that hot water faucet?"
"Oh. Warren." with a note of d!irnay,
"I forgot to telephone about It."
"Huh, you must have a lot to think ot
Strenuous day today?"
"Oh. dear. It wasn't that," with an
apolegetlc laugh, "but I did such a fool
ish thing this morning that It drove
everything else out ef my mind."
Well, what waa It this timer'
"Oh, nothing." flushing eonsdousty.
"only I hid away a ten-dollar bill and
forgot where. I usually put ft under

but this time it was In my glove" box
and I looked Just two hours before I
foihd It. That's why I forgot about the
"See here, what yon need la a box
with a combination lock. Then you'd have
eome place to put your money Instead
of tucking it away In outlandish places."
"A combination lock?" wonderlngly.
"Tea, then you don't have to bother
with key. Every woman ought to have
a eaab box around tha house they never
know how to keep their money. If I
have tone I'll send one op tomorrow.
Have ts go down through that Bekxnbor
Hood in the morning anyway."
The next day about t o'clock the box
came. It was a heavy Japan -tin box
with a combination lock and a card of
lrutTOctiona (or opening It
Helen bad seen Warren open his sate
at the office, and it had always aeemeii
a fascinating thing. And now aha took
tre box over to the window with all the
oeiignt of a child with a new puzsle.
Carefully she read the directions:
"Gtve the knob at least thee full

and atop when T comes the., second

Turn right aa far aa possible and
raise the lid." ,
But though very carefully she followed
this, the box would not open, . She tried
It again and again. She waa cure ahe
waa doing It right-yet the lid would not
It waa more absorbing and mora baf
fling than any pustle, and she worked
at It almost until Warren came The
lock waa sprung or tha combination was
wrong--she felt certain of that
"Cash box come?" asltsd Warren
cheerfully, as he hung up his coat in the
"Yes, dear, it earns this afternoon."
"Open It all right? Learn the combina
tion ?' '
"No. something's wrong. I'm afraid
the lock got sprung In coming."
"Nonsense, the lock's all right. Bring
Helen brought In the box and the -card.
He read the Instructions, followed them
quickly, and la a second the box waa
"There, what's the matter with that?"
"But. dear, hoer did you do It' Work
it aiowiy now and let me see."
He closed the box, threw off the com
bination and opened It again.
"Oh, I see new. I did do It right, but
I didn't hold the 1 nob back when I tried
to raise the lid. It didn't say that."
"They thought you'd know that much.
Now try' locking It again.
It took several unsuccessful efforts be
fore ahe finally' opened it.
"There, that's It! Now you've got It
Now won't ttiat be better than poking
your money 'around In fiie bottom ot
drawers? But be sure and don't ahut up
this card In the box. If you do that
before you've memorised H you're gone.
It's Very simple you'd better memorise
It now. then you're sure of It."
Rut Helen was never good at memor
ising, and though she revested it to her
self several times she was not at all sura
that ahe knew It.
The next day the first demand on the
cash box waa for the laundry btiL Helen
found ahe had entirely forgotten the com
bination. But the card was there and she
opened It. though not without having to
try several limes, for she was nervous
and hurried. And when ahe put back the
bills she put back the card of instruc
tions with them and locked the. box.
It was not until later that she realised
whst she had done. Oh. if only she could
remember the combination! 81m knew
the first number. It, but anguish as she
would, she could not recall the other
two. For almost an Hour she tried var
ious numbers but It was useless.
She shrank from the thought ot having
to admit to Warren that ahe had been
so careless. Now that things had gone
so smoothly since his retain, she dreaded
anything that might annoy or Irritate
And she shrank, too, from so often
appearing at a disadvantage Every fool

In a way that mad It seem worse fnan
it really waa. And yet if ahe did any
thing exceptionally well, anything In
which ahe showed unusually good man
srernent or capability, those things some
how never came before him.
Ever since she waa married It had been
like this. Always she. had appeared to
him In a worse light then to any one
else. She never made a blunder that fhe
did not make It before him or that be
did not immediately know of It It
seemed almost like a curious fatality.
Thai evening she made no mention of
the box; ehe wanted to put It off aa long
as she could. But she knew she would

breakfast she asked timidly:

Cooking Secrets of a Famous Chef

Americans as a rule use more condi

French people, and I attribute this need
for excessive seasoning to two things

many chefs sre complaining that theeo
strong drinki!, taken before meals, par
alyse the pelate and make it Insensible

should not destroy It by drinking 'very
strong appetisers before meals, or by
taking such liquors aa whiskey, t's-,
with his veals or before them.
' A good dinner Is en hs need by a small
amount of the right kind of wine, but it
Is ruined by stimulants which destroy,
first the taste, then dixestion and finally
the health of the drinker.
I believe Americana owe the terrible
rapidity with which they eat to tbe use
of these stimulants, as well as to too
much tea and coffee -- '-
