Hunting a Hlusband
Dr. Hapes Offers to Take the Widow in His Car to the
Goymtiy and She Gladly Accepts.
By VIRGINIA TERHUNE VAN DEWATER.
A slowly convalescing child is always
difficult to manage and Jean Minor was
no exception to the rule. Indeed, she was
more fretful than la the child who re
cuperates normally, for on alternate days
the .little girl had a slight rise t tem
perature, accompanied by a headache,
and ( without understanding the cause of
her depression, she' was discouraged and
Her mother, too, was suffering ..from
the' reaction which ' foUows any ' keen
anxiety. Most mothers : know hoV flat,
etaje and unprofitable life seems when
the distressing danger 'that menaced ft.
dear one is past, and yet, the relieved
patient does not regain 'strength as
qalckly- as one thinks she should.
At first Beatrice was overwhelmed -with,
ft. sense 'of Joyous relief as she appreci
ated that Jean waa not critically III, and
in' imagination she saw the child running
iabout, well and - strong, in a few days.
But as'; day after day dragged lta
scorching and enervating length away,
, and the small patient remained pale and
iahguld, nervous and Irritable, the mother
felt tha peculiar discouragement ' that
will not be reasoned away. " ' ''
" When br. Hay ne prescribed change
. air , for Jqaii, ' Beatrice wrbie to Helen
Bobbins, saying that she had decided' tb
. leave' town, as soon as it was safe for the
little- girl to be moved, but tnat She did
not feel like taking board or a cot tag
for the summer la any. place which she
had never seen. Therefore, she would
prefer .running out to Pleasanton,;,where
Helen had her country, home, , to. Inspect
the locality before making definite plans
to sojourn there tor the remainder of th
hated term. Helen replied, immediately,
urging Beatrice to bring the children and
spend a few days with, her.
"We have an abundanee of room J" she
wrote, "and the rest will do you good
and give .you an opportunity to look over
the, ground out here,
The invitation gave Beatrice food for
thought. It would be a convenience, she
felt, to make the suggested visit, but, in
the circumstances, she shrank from put
ting herself under obligations to Helen.
The '.-widow appreciated that her friend
would resent hotly, if she knew it, the
fact that "Uncle Henry" was her suitor,
andrae long as this was the case, she
did not feel that It would be quite fair
to accept Helen's hospitality without ac
knowledging the truth. This she was
not willing to do, for .hiad not decidsd
definitely to take Henry Blanchard a a
husband. If Helen knew the facta there
would .be, no chance -for th: widow to
temporize further. If she were eventually
to marry Blanchard, Helen, remembering'
that her friend had accepted her Invita
tion and kept the truth from her, would
feel that Beatrice Had not v been above
making a convenience of her, "'and that
would put the widow in an-uncomfortable
, While ,Jean's mother mused on these
thjngs, Dr. Haynes came to pay his dalty
visit to the small patient When he re
marked before leaving that ''the child
was doing as well as she could until she
got . the fresh country air," Beatrice
asked him to stay for a few minutes,
and led him Into the drawing room, that
she might talk to him of her plans. She
told him of the cottage and . hotel of
which Jier friend had written, but added
that she did not wish to decide upon
eiher one until she had seen the Village
In which they were situated.
"To tell the truth," she said, with the
frank manner- that won for, her the rep
utation of childlike sincerity, "I cannot I
wearing trip tot you. Mrs.. Bobbins, hos
pitable soul, has honored me by asking
rrie to spend a fortnight with them later
oh. I have promised, however, to run
out In my car and take lunch with them
some day before then."
Beatrice suspected what the next ques
tion would be, and held her peace hope
fully. ' .. ; ' '
"I tell you what let's do.." exclaimed
the man as the idea that had already
dawned on the widow's mind burst upon
his. "Write to Mrs. Bobbins and tell
her that I am going to take you out
in my motor day after tomorrow. We
can lunch with her. you see, and then
you and she can go over the furnished
cottage 'together and you can make up
your mind how you like it, while I, un
known to her, will make a mental obser
vations a to how the place will suit
the . small . patient I understand that
It Is the northern part of New Jersey,
and 'the 'air ought to be good, but I
prefer to judge- of the matter for my
self. -With Jean in her present state
of health we must get' her where there
is. no malaria."
"What 'time must we start -in the
morning?" asked Beatrice, after she had
expressed herself as delighted with the
scheme. "I would want to have the
little girl up and pressed before I go
away. Tou are sure it is safe to leave
herr ;..'.. .
"Of course," exclaimed the man with
a touch of impatience. "We do not have
to' go until 10 o'clock. I understand that
the run csn be made easily in less than
two hours, but we will allow a little
more time and surely get there in time
for luncheon. Tou will be back here by
your dinner hour. I will look the route
up on my road map. Meantime you com
municate - with Mrs. Bobbins. I must
hurry off now, and, unless Jean Is worse
(which, by. the way, she won't be) I'll
not be In tomorrow, for I will crowd as
muoh work as possible into the day, as
am to be away the next I will be here
at ;46 the day after tomorrow, Thurs
day, so that I can see the child before we
start That will make you feel easier, I
know," he added, with a ' pleasant
As. he' Went down the hall he looked
Into the bedrom in which Jean, In a great
Chair, was playing with her dolls.
"Goodby, little princess," ' he called
gaily. "On Thursday I am going to take
mother away for a few hours to see about
a .pretty plaoe in the country for you to
go' to this summer."
The child's face lighted with a happy
smile. "Oh, fank you. Dr. Haynes," she
"And I, too, thank you, doctor," said
Beatrice, as she followed him to the door
of her apartment "Tou are doing me a
great favor." Her voice was soft and low
and her eyes full of feeling. But the
doctor scarcely looked at her.
. . . i
"Oh, nonsense," he exclaimed In a
matter of fact tone. "It is a pleasure to
me to do it, for I have grown very fond
of that little girl of yours."
Kind as the remark was, Beatrice was
conscious of a vague regret as she ap
preciated that, perhaps, after all, It was

my maid with me anyway, it seems to
ipe. that It would be cheaper to take a
furnished cottage, for then Mary could
be mald-of-all-work and assist In the
care of the children, as she does here
The doctor nodded approvingly. "Yes,"
he agreed, '"and as you need care for
yourself, too, ' you need your maid, for
you are tired out." . .
"And," said Beatrice, "If we have out
own cottage, the children will have more
freedom, and' need not be dressed up in
their best, as they must be In a hotel."
"Quite right" affirmed the physician.
. "And you want to see the locality before
going out to stay." . .
i"That' Just it" said the widbw,
eagerly. "Helen Bobbins has asked me
to spend some days with her, . but I
cannot Impose thus upon her. But do you
think It would be safe for me to leave
Jean for one day? If so, I can take an
early train to Pleasantoa and get back

The doctor looked thoughtfully. "Why;
yes," he said, "the child would be safe

TRYING TO. BREAK IN
THE SMITH FAMILY
A drunken man broke a bunch of steins
in a Chicago cafe because he was in a
playful mood. When be was arraigned In
court he said his name wae Nicholas
Smith. There was something in the way
he said It that the judge believed an
awful mystery was being kept from the
light. And the jurist's Intuition proved
"I don't believe you're name Is Nich
olas Smith at all," the judge said. "Now
tell met what your real name Is before 1
send you to Jail.' , s ,
The man looked beseechingly at the
judge, and then, as If he were confessing
a great crime, he said in chest tones that
sounded like a whisper from deep cav
erns: "My name is Sausage Nicholas
Sausage." ' ' .
Then Sausage related this:- "I came to
this country seven years ago. Over In
Qermany Sausages move In the very .first
-society, and . I bad no reason to be
ashamed of It. But In this country I
suffered greatly on account of my name.
I went home one night and thought it
over. The next morning when I woke -

PINK TOOTHED GIRLS '.
MAKE THE BEST WIVES,
- "Girls with plrik tinted teeth have
a loving disposition and win make
good wives." declared Dr. Jacob 8.
Wolls of Fargo. N, D., a delegate
to the National Dentists' conven
tion In Washington, D. C. "Young
men would do well If they would
have there sweetheart' teeth ex
amined before marrying them. Girls
who have dull, chalky teeth are
not prone to love and will not as
a general thing make good wives
"Girls of wifely Inclinations have
the pink tint just below the gums.
It can be readily seen If one will
look closely. ' The color Is In the
enamel and not, as some dentists
state, an overhanging of the gums.'-
"When we speak of education and lead
ing the higher life," said Mrs. Ferkln
son, dropping a slice of lemon In her
tea, "we talk hlgh-browed stuff about
Ibsen and Maeterlnok, and ethics, and
and to on, but the
things that really
and quicken the
mind, and that are
the derricks that
give up the moral
uplift, are gener
ally humble, little
everyday things of
and power we are'
not even aware.
"Now, take the
subway, for In
stance, We all
abuse It, from the
Bronx lo the Bat
tery, and yet as a
mental slmulus it has got a college course
beaten a city block, and for my part I
look to see the next generation of New
Yorkers people of the most extraordinary
alertness of mind and decision of char,
arttr, all due to their forbears having
ridden on the subway and to having been
brought up on that educational medium
themselves. V, -' ' "
"The subway teaches you to keep your
wits about you; to be wide awake and
always on the Job of knowing where you
are and what you are there fore, or else
you'll be whirled merllly past your sta

fate bad done It, You have to learn to be
ready for your opportunity and go, halt

Otherwise you'll never be able to flghj

"Just how far the New York character
had been nioflif'ed liy- the subway I had
forcibly Impressed upon me recently, when,
I had a vlxlt from my Uncle Silas, andl

How to be happy, though married, and
now to get married, though, single and
extremely shy of the other sex, were two
question which were answered at some
length by Mrs. Elisabeth Gulon Donner.
Mrs. Donner speaks with authority, be
cause she Is a born matchker. .She has
nine perfectly good matches to her credit,
and they all lived happily ever after, too,
yet the marriages' were made in Chicago,
where Mrs. Donner is well known In so
ciety and is a member of many clubs.
"1 am a great believer In marriage,"
said Mrs. , Donner, after we had talhed

and other things, and eventually got
around to this all important subject.
"Nobody can make me believe that
every normal woman doesn't want the
protection and care and love of some
good man. But the good husband Is
born, and not made,, and he usually does
not discover his genius for being a hus
band until late In life.
"All happy marriages are based on
mutual unselfishness, and youth la eel-
fish. That Is why the marriage of older
people Is much more lfkely to be happy."
"Then don't you believe, Mrs. Donner,
that a husband or wife can be trained
In the way they should go by the Other
"Yes, Indeed, and generally they are
better trained to go away from each
other," she laughed
"Married happiness Is made up very
largely of little things. Most couples
In time of real danger and misfortune,
can unite and struggle ;on together, but
the daily irritation and petty annoyances
are what wreck the average-marrlage.
"For instance, I know one man who Is
certainly a genius at the particular trade'
of husband," . and Mrs. - Dontier smiled
Just a little consciously, so that I wa
quite sure, who he was.
"He Is a sort of man who shows ab
solute consideration for his wife In small
things. In the hot weather, when he
wanted to sit around without his coat, he
Would no more think of taking his coat
off without the ordinary formality of

he knew perfectly that she didn't, than

matters can be of Importance, but they

them give up the cultivation of their tal
