Hunting a Husband
The Widow's Evening Out is Marred by an Unpleasant
By VIRGINIA TERHUNE VAN DEWATER.
Beatrice Minor was naturally, In spite
of occasional moods of depression, of a
happy disposition. The only times when
she was really downhearted were those
In which an appreciation of her moderate
Income was forced upon her, or when,
as last night, she saw ahead of her no
prospect of the pleasure which her sou)
loved. Today, therefore, her spirits arose
. with a bound as she looked forward to
a merry evening at Helen Robbin's house
She went about the bungalow singing1,
and even made several trips- out Into the
rain to pick some gorgeous red phlox
from the flower bed bordering the grave)
walk leading from the gate. On the
second of these expeditions she saw a
man partially concealed under a huge cot
ton umbrella turn in at her gate and
come toward her. As he tilted the um
brella back from his face she recognized
the rural mall carrier whom Helen had
pointed out to her the day before.
As he was a native of Pleasanton, whre
all men feel that they are not only as
good but better than any city dwellers,
he did not touch his hat to the lady, who
greeted him with a cheery "Good morn
ing!" But he nodded and drew from his
bag two letters addressed to her.
"The city folk up here who don't want
the bother of goln' for their mail pays
me 25 cents a week to deliver It to their
houses. And as you have no man to send
for It, I suppose you want me to put your
name on my list."
"Yes, I do," replied Mrs. Minor.
"Well, I make my collections one week
from the time I begin deliveries," hs
said as he turned away.
Beatrice went into the house with net
letters. One envelope contained her tele
phone bill from town. The second envel
ope the widow opened with a slight sink
ing of heart, for It was from Henry
Blanchard. She read the letter thought
fully. The writer supposed that she was
in the country as he had not succeeded
in getting her on her city telephone. But
he was mailing this note to her town ad
dress from which place it would be for
warded to her had she already left for
New York. He then told her that he
would be in Pleasanton on the first fine
day to see about the room he had "spoken
for" at the Cedar Cliff hotel. He always
wanted certain bits of his own furniture
whereever he stayed, he said, and must
have those moved out before he came
for his summer vacation.
"Old maid," muttered the widow.
"I can't help thinking," he went on,
"how good It would be to have a wife to
look after my comfort. I often am very
lonely without anyone but hirelings to
care about my welfare."
"Then he would better hire a nurse In
stead of marrying one!" exclaimed the
reader with a curl of her Up. His next
sentence made ber start.
"If I were sure you were in Pleasanton
I would be strongly tempted to come out
at once, no matter what the weather
might be. But I suppose I ought to
Beatrice tossed the letter impatiently
upon her desk. Was Blanchard going to
be here so much this summer that he
would spoil her funf Yet she dare not
dismiss him utterly yet. She wished that
he would have a sudden business call to
California and would stay there for the
next three months. By that time she
might decide what to do with him. At
present there seemed possibilities that
the summer would bring Into her circle
someone whom she might find more con
genial than this elderly man.
She would keep him at a distance as
long as she could by the excuse that, as
Helen was her dear friend, she could not,
while receiving kindnesses from her, en
courage from the uncle attentions of
which his niece would disaprove. If this
excuse failed, she must urge upon her
suitor the plea that in a smsll village
his attentions would excite unpleasant
With this resolve the widow put the
bachelor and his devotion from her mind.
She yesrned to send him away with the
satisfactory explanation that she was
engaged to another man, always suppos
'ng that the other man had as much of
this world's goods as had "Uncle Henry."
When, late that afternoon, Mrs. Rob
bin's man and carriage brought some
small Jack, the lad's mother was ready te
start' for her friend's home. It was still
raining heavily, and she wrapped herself
in a large mackintosh and pulled the
remove her wraps and noted the dress
which they had concealed.
"You extravagant creature!" she chlded.
"The idea of wearing that pretty thin?
over here on such a day as this."
"It Is only a simple net gown," declared
Beatrice. "But the little pale blue china
slip under It gives it a rather festive air."
She laughed as she shook out her filmy
skirts and sank into a great chair in
front of the hearth In the large central
hall of Helen's' home. The air was grown
chilly today and the heat was grateful.
The hall was a kind of gathering place
for the whole family and combined all
the charms of living room, library and
music room, for the walls were plenti
fully lined with book shelves, while in
the corner farthest from the fireplace
stood an upright piano.' As the two
women chatted Beatrice's heart again
warmed toward her friend Just as it had
She noted what a dainty little creature
Helen was, and sihe liked her all the bet
ter for her generous praise of other
women's appearance. Beatrice did not
liause to wonder If sha would feel as
kindly toward Helen if she ' herself did
not have the comforting consciousness
of being becomingly dressed. That con
sciousness gives one a feeling; of charity
for all man and woman kind.
"We are going to have lots of good
times together now," Helen declared.
"Dr. Hoynes Is coming up soon to stay
at least a fortnight Paul Maynard may
stay all summer at Pleasanton, although
one can never predict Just what he's
going to do; Robert will be up occa
sionally, although your not liking him
and his being engaged will make him
seem less interesting W you. All these
men will stay at the Cedar Cliff. Later
on I may Invite Robert Maynard's fiancee
here, but I've not decided whether to do
so or not."
To this Beatrice made no reply. She
remembered that Miss Damere was some
what a protege of Helen's, so she held
"The one drawback to our fun," Helen
proceeded, "may be Uncle Henry. I
can't make the dear, man appreciate that
he is of another generation than ours,
and that he may be In the way. He In
sists that he will spend some weeks at
the Cedar Cliff, although all the men
there must be bored to desperation by
him. And when he Is there he comes
up here to dinner with appalling fre
quency." She eyed her friend keenly, and
Beatrice felt herself flush embarrasaedly
under the gase. She Mas glad that at
this moment the telephone at the back
of the hall rang sharply. John Robbins,
entering from the rear veranda, answered
it. His only reply to the unseen speaker
was a curt "All right!' But, after
hanging up the receiver and greeting the
widow with his accustomed geniality, he
turned to his wife with a somewhat rue
"My dear," ihe said, "I'm sorry to an
noy you, but your uncle telephones me
that he Is at the Cedar Cliff for the
night, and that he proposes, rain or no
rain, to1 give himself the pleasure of
calling here this evening after dinner."
The two women looked at each othet
aghast. , I
"Good heavens!" gasped Helen.
And the widow, with no less fervor and
sincerity, echoed her exclamation of consternation.

through the gate at just 12:21. The en

Many a man
By MARGARET HUBBARD AYER.
Is It true that a proposal from the am
bitious young man finds ljttle favor in
the ears of the girl of today?
It's not the ambitious man, but the
good spender whose proposal appeals to
the young woman, at least according to
Mr. Robert Von P.nk, who writes of the
tribulations of the young man who has
ambition, but no particular desire to live
up to the "present" system.
That is a happy way of naming the
costly system of graft which Cupid en
acts from the man who Is about to pro
pose. Flowers, candy, books, theater tickets
all come under the term "present" sys
tem, and few girls are willing to go
without them if there Is any possible
way of extracting them from the victim
who must prove himself willing to spend
if he wishes to be accented.
Here is the man's point of view:
"Dear Madam I will thank you if you
will print my letter In answer to Miss
Ruth Levey. The young lady is quite
right in looking for an ambitious and
deserving young man. but, as you may
know,, to some young ladles the ambitious
young man is of no value. As it s the
girl expects too much, and If there Is a
young man who cannot possibly live up
to the 'present' system there Is always
another to take his place. Bo you see
that not ail the girls think of the ambi
tious young man as does .Miss Lsvey. I
believe in a young man telling the truth
about his salary, and always remember-
ng there Is a rainy day awaiting him.
"It la also essential for a young lady
to speak to her friend about his saving
something. Just as noon, then, as a
little Is placed aside there is always am
bition for a young man, and with the
help of hla prospective wife he, will
eventually become very ambit oils if ho
is not so while In the early stages of
"In some Instances a young lady will
only look for the man wno can give her
a good time, at the same' time not think
ing of the young man seriously .
'To tell the truth, the ambitious young
man is not wanted. It is the spending
kind that appeals to the young lady.
"ROBERT VON PINK."
Generally speaking the present system
ends after he has proposed and been ac
cepted and the thought of home-building
Is uppermost in the girl's mind.
"Violet" Insists on n ambitious man
and a generous one as well and it's pretty
certain that the man whe wins her heart
will have to indicate by the much criti
cised "present" system that he Is willing
to lavish all he has on her.
Here Is her letter:
"Dear Madam Though I am still In
boarding school, I think I may give you
my Ideal of what a proposal should be.
"In the first place, I want a man who la
brave, ambitious and generous. He must
fay that he loves me enough to work
hard for me and he must find out what

This little characterise of Cupid would
make life pleasanter If adopted by others
