Wsves I Might Have Been
An Artist's Wife '
By JANE M'LEAN.
I will admit one thing he was the
best-looking man I have ever known
and I went so far as to become en
gaged. Any girl would have accepted
him. He had blond hair and the kind
of face one sees on magazine covers.
Not that he was the least bit effemi
nate. I never saw a man so virile. But
he wa,s just very handsome, and he
It was great fun to' have the girls
introduce me as "Miss Page, Anne
Page, you know. She is engaged to
that wonderful looking Montague
Moore, the artist. Of course, you
know he does covers for all the mag
azines." And then the gi'.U would all look
at me with added respect and I knew
what they were thinking. I knew
that they were saying: "I wonder
what he saw jn her. Of course, she
has a stunning, figure and her com
plexion is wonderful, but I'd never
call her a beauty. I thought artists
always married their models.".
And I would laugh to myself. Of
course artists don't marry their mod
els. I knew that long before I be
came engaged to Monty, and of course
I knew that I wasn't a beauty. But I
did make a stunning appearance and
no one could make me think other
wise. At Bee's bridge a thin little girl
came up' to me and began to gush
"You are engaged to that artist who
does Juch wonderful covers, aren't
you, Miss Page? I suppose he'll do
a pastel of you full size after you are
married. - Won't that be perfectly
great?" And it was then that I re
solved never to pose for my hus
band just because it was supposed to
be the thing to do.
And now I have come to the part
where I must tell why I broke my
engagement. It happened this way:
I was to meet Monty' at the studio
one afternoon, and we were to go out
somewhere for tea. I arrived early,
of course, but Monty had put the key
under them at and I let myself in.
I hadn't been there ten minutes when
there came a ring at the bell.
When I went to the door there
An entire novelty in nutmeg graters
is a contrivance which consists of
a perforated metal . wheel against)
which is fastened a metal case to
inclose a nutmeg. A small crank is
used to turn the nutmeg against the
wheel of sharp iferforations. In otli-
stood a thin-faced, frightened-looking i wi'. operation is not scratch-
little girl, who just gazed at me with
her big eyes as though she wanted to
tell me something and didn't dare.
"Are you Miss Page?" she asked
I nodded and held the door open for
her to come in. She walked slowly
till she reached, the middle of the
floor, and then she whirled suddenly.
"I want to tell you something," she
said in a breathless kind of way. "You
are engaged to Montague Moore,
aren't you? Well, I want you to
know that he loved me until you
came along. Always remember that
You didn't come first. It's true," she
went on bitterly. "You can ask him,
if you like. I told him I'd tell you
if I ever saw you alone, becanse he
wouldn't let me come to the studio
any more after you came, and I
loved him, oh, how I loved him!"
She turned away with a little sob,
and suddenly I looked up and saw
Monty standing in the doorway. He
looked very pale and closed the door
behind him softly. The little girl
glanced up and shrank back when she
saw him, and the three of us just
gazed at each other. I don't know
now whether I did right, but I did
the only thing I could do. I just
walked right up to Monty and looked
him square in the eyes.
"Is it true?" I whispered. He
nodded. And then somehow I just
didn't love Monty any more. So I
just walked out and left them togeth
er. And I had the funniest hurt lit
tle feeling in my heart.

and other small objects.
A Shaped Hot-Water Bottle.
Many are the hot-water bottles on
the market, but the newest is a pecu
liar one shaped exactly to the small
of the back. It is made of aluminum,
and is oval and curved so that it fits
either the back or face when, one is
suffering from neuraligia or tooth
ache. Water can be heated directly
in the bottle by using the bottle as a
utensil on the stove. It comes fitted
with a thick eiderdown cover.
Another Olive Spear.
One of the tiny practical novelties,
always convenient in opening the
summer bottle of olives, is an olive
spear. The latest on consists of a
thin metal pencil fitted with curving
loops at one end. In o(her words,
it is a kind of hollow spoon. By
pushing the spear into the bottle of
olives and pulling it up the olive is
removed without bruising or piercing
the flesh. It can also be used for
pickles, cherries, lump sugar or sim
ilar small objects.
A Handled Spring for Milk Bottles.
Although there are many milk bot
tle caps on the market one. of the
most convenient is a combined handle
and cover. This is made of steel, so

tilted and used exactly like a pitcher.
There is also a pouring lip to fit
around the bottle top, so that1 milk
can be poured without the usual spill
ing. A pressure of the. thumb opens
the cap. This would certainly be
serviceable in the summer cottage or
in the kitchen. Philadelphia Ledger.
This old recipe has much to rec
ommend it. Take six sardines, two
eggs and sufficient cayenne. Scale and
bone the sardines, boil the eggs hard
and chop them. Lay first the chopped
egg on some hot buttered toast, then
the sardines seasoned with cayenne,
and put in the oven.
Mother -Mader Quick
Acting Cough Syrup t
Skoald ke Kept Hdr la Every
Home -Eaallr Prepare! aaa
Mothers, vou'H never know what you
are missing until you make up this in
expensive, quick-acting cough syrup and
try it. Children love its pleasant taste
and nothing else will loosen a cough or
chest cold and heal the inflamed or
swollen throat membranes with such
ease and promptness, l.t'8 equally as
good for grown-ups as for children.
This splendid cough syrup is made by
pouring 2 ounces of Pinex (50 cents
worth ) , into a pint bottle and filling the
bottle with plain granulated sugar
syrup. This gives you a full pint a
familv supply of much better cough
remedy than veu could buy ready-made
for $2.50 a clear saving of $2.
The moment it touches the inflamed,
cold-congested membranes that line the
throat and air passages, the healing be-
?;ins, the phlegm loosens, soreness
eaves, cough spasms lessen and soon
disappear altogether, thus ending a
cough quicker than you ever thought
possible. Hoarseness , and ordinary
coughs- are conquered bv it in 24 hours
or less. Excellent for bronchitis, whoop
ing cough, spasmodic croup, bronchial
asthma or winter coughs.
Pinex is a highly concentrated com
pound of genuine Norway pine extract,
combined with guaiacol and is famous
the world over for its quick healing
effect on the membranes.
Beware of substitutes. Ask your
druggist for "2 ounces of Pinex" with
directions and don't accept anything
else. Guaranteed to give absolute satis
faction or money refunded. The Pines
