consistent and probable explanation of

within the probably range of percolat

the water mo doubt comes from the
rocks themselves. Still, there are no ac-

I do not believe In ever hugging grief
to one's bosom or being deliberately un
happy. There certainly Is a natural re
spect which any loving heart wants to
pay to its dead. But the father who loved
your friend would never have wished his
eon to suffer unnecessarily. And If this
man la getting morbid over hi suffer
ings, he owes It to himself to seek some
diversion which will enable him to find
strength to meet his bereavement. How
ever, it is only natural that he should
be somewhat loath to go to places of
amusement. As soon as he can adluat
himself to seeking a little harmless di
version, such as going to concerts, lec
tures or even to the theaters, it would
e wise for him to do so.

THE little bride remembered dinner when abe slipped
on ber frilled apron nd tied it behind . her
straight little back I But from that time, when,
with a dainty forefinger against her lower lip, she said,
"creamed cauliflower, he lores that." and leaned to
look into the bedroom just onoe at the Jolly pink baby
lying there on the broad, white bed until a smothered
langh, and a rustle at the door behind her bacjc, and a
big man pouncing on her with cold cheeks And bundles,
and his hair rumpled from a wrenched-oft hat, with
"Where's my dinner?" growled in the voice of the "Big
Bear," brought her up sharp she remembers nothing.
Bhe did not know how many minutes the big man
had larked In the doorway with glittering eyes on the
two who were fiercely his own. But when he had
smoothed her tumbled hair and held ber face hard
against his and then "made dough" out of the chuck
ling, kicking little person with the hair of down, and
had heard her confused, shamed confession, "I I for
got dinner. I was playing with the baby!" he laughed
aloud and Jeered, "The baby! Two babies ware playing,
is the right of It, Candy-Hair!"
The Sort of Girl to Marry
Whos Talent and Beauty Have Won
for Her an Enviable Place In the
Moving Picture World.
A young man Z know told me the other
day that he was going to be married.
"I hop you will b very happy," I
said a I congratulated him.
' fh, Tm sure to. I'm taking no chances
on that." he replied confidently, "for I
am marrying my little office partner.
We've worked together for four years,
and we know all of eaoh other's little
faults and peculiarities, and how to get
around them.
'"when ah come down of a morning
cross, and Jumpy with nerves I send her
out on some errand that will take her
Into the fresh air, and tell her not to
come back for two or three hours.
"And when I'm grumpy, she Just says
to nn, 'Bear!' and make a face at me,
and goea off and leaves me until I have
worked off my grouch. Instead of burst
ing Into tears and having hysterics be
cause I'm croas.
"Tou see she knows how to deal with
an overworked man. which Is something
that few domestlo women comprehend.
"furthermore. I know about 11,000,000
things more about getting along with
women, from having worked with them,
than the man does who has never seen
any woman at close range except Ms
mother and alsters, and he Isn't much
acquainted with them.
"You never hear of any man getting a
divorce who has married his stenogra
pher, or office assistant, or even busi
ness woman." added my friend, trium
phantly. And I don't believe I ever did.
Of course, there are a great many
reasons why the business girl should
make the best Sort of a matrimonial risk.
One thing Is that the training in an office
correct many of th essentially femi
nine faults. It teaches a girl to be prompt,
orderly and decisive. Bhe must do things
on ttme; she must do them properly, and
she must make up mind on the spur of
the moment without any ahllly shallying
and filing back and forth between "I
will" and "I won't."
Then, having earned money herself,
makea a woman careful of how she
spends It. She know every dollar comes
through weariness and anxiety, and is
bought with Just that much of life and
blood; and she doesn't throw It away
with the subline carelessness of ths
woman who seems to think that checks
grow on trees.

rurd I'. th ha to 1,-arn to ktcp temper, and her
tongue, and to take criticism of ber work
and her opinions Impersonally, Instead
of considering them deadly Insults. She
ha to learn to keep her precious little
feeling to herself, Instead of spreading
them all over th place, and howling
whenever anybody steps on them.
But the chief reason that the business
girl makes an Ideal wife, 1 because
having worked herself, she haa a sym
pathy for her husband, and a com
prehension of what h does that no home
keeping woman can possibly have.
The average woman regards a man's
going downtown of a morning In th
nature of a lark. Bhe thinks it would Just
be fun to spend the day with a lot of other
people In a nloe office or store, seeing
fresh face, and hearing new stories all
day long, and ahe thinks It all pretense
when her husband says bs Is too tired
to go out of an evening, or even to talk.
The girl who has been In business
knows, the frightful strain of getting up
every morning and going to work at a
certain time, whether you are weary or
rested, or sick cr well. Bhe knows that
no battlefield was ever the soene of a
greater conflict than goes on every hour
of the day In store of countingroom, and
that the higher up the man. the more
his expenditure of brain and brawn.
Bhe knows what it Is to come home so
nerve worn and exhausted that It aeems
that Just to have to make one more
effort would be the straw that breaks
the camel' back.
And so from her own experience, she
refrain from adding to th burden of a
man who ha already got all he ean
bear, and she coddles and comforts hlra
as no other wife does her husband, be
cause the other woman doesn't under
stand, and never can understand how he
needs It.
That's why. If I were a man, I'd pick
out a business woman for a wlfs.
Spring Painting Tips
Paint brushes are expensive articles,
yet they are frequently permitted to be
come almoet worthless through neglect
In order to keep them In good condition
procure a dish or tin can deep enough
to stand them in and pour into It water
to a height that will cover the bristles
of the brushes, and than our In a little
machine or lubricating oil. The oil pre
vents not only the rusting of the Iron of
the brush part and of the tin, but also
the evaporation of the water.
Wrap the ' bristle of each brush in
paper and tie the paper In place with a
string. This keeps the oil from coming

The Treatment of Cancer
When It oomea to forms of treatment
of the r than the surgical operation, we
must confess our embarrassment, almost
our helplessness.
Numerous as they are, w are com
pelled In the present state of our knowl
edge to say of all of them, that they
should be considered only after aa oper
ation haa failed, or is out of the ques
tion, or aa aooeseoiies to operation, to
diminish the likelihood of recurrence of
the growth.
This sounds like a sweeping and dis
couraging statement, and will probably
be bitterly resented by many eager en
thusiasts with the X-ray, radium and
with various serum and cultures. But It
aeems to represent the sober Judgment of
the profession and of those who have
had the widest experience with the
disease at present. The future we hope
may make a better showing.
A great variety of methods other than
surgical have been eagerly tried, the
latest and most frequent being the - In
jection Into the growth of Irritating or
coagulating substance. In th hop of
destroying It or causing It to breach
down. ,
Then com th application of heat
In various forms, from sealing with a
hot Iron to electro-cautery, the X-ray,
the burning-glaaa, concentrating the
sun's rays; ths so-called Finaen light
through huge blue lenaea; using ths cold
or ultra-violet rays of light; radial man
atlons, figurations with electric dls-
charges, etc., etc
Next come the Injection Into the growth
of a variety of serums and cultures; In
the hope that they will break down the
cancer mass and destroy the cancer cells.
Cultures from case of crjslelua, iul
tures of two or three germs mixed to
gether, as - tn the well-known Coley's
fluid for the special form of cancer
called "Sarcoma," serums made from
patients who have recovered from csn
oer, or from the blood of those who are
still suffering from It; and so on ad
There are almost as many kinds of
eures as there are cancer, and the sub
ject Is hugely beyond the poeslblllty of
consideration In detail. But one gen
eral principle and hope underlie all of
these methods, and that Is the discov
ery of some Influence drug, heat, light,
germs which will have a selective ef
fect; t e.. will destroy the cells of the
cancer and leave those of the surround
ing tissues untouched.
A will b readily understood when we
remember the mushroom growth and
fungus softness of the canter cells, there
is no great difficulty In producing a cer
tain amount of effect of this sort. In
fact, many of the Injectiona and raya
will pioduce a noticeable shrinking and
breaking down of ths growth, sufficient
to arouse the most glowing hopes of a
compute cure.
Indeed, the cancer cells are so tender
and unstable that almost any Injurious
Influence applied to tbem will kill more
of them than It will of the body cell
about It Is strongly suspected. In fact,
that the remarkable temporary results
sometime ' produced by the X-rays,
radium, by violet light, eto., are merely
due to the amount of heat which I mad
to penetrate the tumor and shrivel up
the more sensitive end delicate cancer
But, unfortunately, when It comes to
a permanent cure, the ease with which
a cancer may be made to shrink Is In si
most exactly Inverse ratio to the oer
talnty with which It can be. kept
shrunksn. The reason 1 painfully clear
again from the nature of the cancer
Although almost sny Injurious Influ
ence can be so applied as to kill them and
spare the healthy and surrounding tis
sues. It Is practically impossible to so
apply It as to reach thoae which have
progressed two, four or sis tnchss Into
the body, I. e., without burning a hoi
in th patient' body of th also of a
derby hat.
No matter how completely the original
or aurface growth ha shrunken down
and disappeared under the Influence of
radium, the X-ray. or violet rays. In
eltrht cases out of ten so far a ths seed
cells escape and the growth comes back
either In the neighborhood of Its origin
or in some of the Internal organa.
Almot the only exception to the regret
ful statement I th case of certain super
ficial cancers of the skin, the eyelids,
the none, face and hands, which can be
completely cleered up by expoaure to
either radium or the X-ray.
But these, unfortunately, ' have been
known for forty years, for some strange
reaaon. never to throw off seed cells
which penetrate the deeper cells of the
body and produce secondary cancers. We
still have hopes that with Increasing ex
perience and Improved technique better
result may be obtained. But up to date
the number of cases of proved csncer
which have been cured and atayed cured
for five yeara or more after treatment
with the X-rays, or radium, or serums,
Is painfully small. And, of course, we
don't begin to uae the term "cure" in
connection with cancer until at leaat
three and usually five to seven yesrs
have elapsed without any fresh signs.
Why, you haven't more than half mowed
that lawn."
"No, ma'am,' said Weary, "bat you see,
lady, I kind o thought some other poor
