My Heart and
K Adele Garrison's
What Does Alfred Really Think
of Rita Browa? N
Riti Brown stretched her shapely
arms above her head and yawned
"Oh, somebody say something or
I sh?ll scream 1" she said petulantly,
"Do you realize that we've all beep
sitting here absolutely silent for 10
whole minutes?" ,
I think there was unconscious
resentment in every glance turned
upon her. I know that for myself
her Exaggerated statement disturbed
tne contemplation of a rare picture,
that framed by the screened veranda
at the rear end of the Durkee home.
There are many gnarled old
apple and pear trees in the grounds
surrounding the houses purchased
by Dicky and Alfred Durkee, and
the spVing, unusually mild, had
brought- extremely early and abun
dant blossoming. The exquisite
beauty of their drifting pink and
white petals against the tender first
green of the other trees, the vista
of greensward between them
stretching down to the sparkling
Waters of the little lake at the foot
of the gardens, made a vision which
I for one grasped jealously, know
ing that at best it could last but a
few days, and that another long
year would elapse before the' won
der and the glory of apple-blossom
time came back again. -
It was a picture which could not
help stir the pulses of the artist, and
1 had seen rapt enjoyment in
Dickey's eyes as he stretched his
lazy length in one of Mrs. Dur
kee's comfortable veranda chairs
and pulled at his after dinner cigar.
Alfred. Durkee, also smoking, regis
tered the same contemplative enjoy
ment, while my father's tired,
strained face relaxed for a little
front the mental burden which I
knew he was carrying .as he gave
himself up to the beauty spread out
Edith and Leila Fairfax, my
mother-in-law, volatile Mrs. Dur
kee not one of the group gathered
on the Durkee veranda after a most
delectable dinner had evinced the
slighest impulse to speak after the
first involuntary exclamations at
the beauty of the view. Rita
Brown's petulant exclamation was
like a rude hand deflecting the bow
of a master violinist to a discordant
Both Dicky and Alfred Durkee.

however, answered her challenge at
once, although indolently. Neither
rose from his se'at, but both took
their cigars from thejr mouths,
spoke almost simultaneously.
"Say not so, Rita," Dicky drawled.
'There are six women i this
crowd. Ten minutes' silence! Nay!
Alfred's reply held a different
"Don't you like our pet view.
Rita?" he asked and I wondered, as
I heard his voice, saw, the expres
sion on his face, if his mother had
been right for the first time in her
ridiculous guesses, and if Alfred
Durkee really cared for the girl
just now taming her lovely bored
face to his.
"Oh. of course, it's, a beautiful
effect 1" she retorted carelessly,
flashing a brilliant provocative smile
at him. "The coloring "
"Rita!" Dicky sat upright and
shook a protesting fist at her. "I
wain you, I'll stand for a good
many things from you but I won't
listen to any jargon about 'effects'
and 'coloring.' and all the other
patter you have at your tongue's
end. This is my day of rest, and I
don't want any suggestion of me
trade running around loose. If you
can't stand it any longer without
conversation I'll turn on the spigot,
and furnish you selections of nje
choicest brands. But it you love
me prate not of 'effects' when
you've had the chance to look at
anything like this."
But Alfred Responds
He indicated the drifting
blossoms, the lake vista with a care
less wave of the hand, but I knew
him well enough to guess that he
was annoyed at the girl's intrusion
into his contemplative reverie.
"But I don't love you," the girl
replied with a mocking, look at me.
"It's never safe to love a married
man when his wife's around. It's
only Alfred that I love, and I know
he's coming over here to talk to me,
so you can keep your fascinating
conversation to yourself. -And I'll
not forgive you in a hurry either for
your patter and vour jargon stuff."
"I'll kill him on the way over if
you say so, Kita," Alfred Durkee
said, as he rose and made his way
to the girl's side.
It was all the veriest playful non
sense, but again something in Alfred
Durkee's face and voice made me
wonder what were his real feelings
toward Rita Brown. (

London Doptor Says Fat
Men Should Wear Corsets
London, June lO.--Men with a
paunch should wear corsets. That
was the advice of Dr. Leonard Wil
liams gave the Peace Niirsery and
Mid-wifery conference. His reason
is based upon health principles.
"Aboriginal man," said Dr. Wil
liams, "certainly was a four-footed
animal. The abdominal construc
tion was intended for that posture.
Since human beings began to walk
on their hind legs the position cf
abdominal organs had been thrown
out of gear.
"People who take plenty of out
door exercise and athletes might get
on very well without corsets, but
persons who live a sedentary life
require some kind of support as
ffiven hv corsets."
' Dr. Williams said people who
wore tight collars prevented proper
draining of their brains and thereby
suffered bad tempers.
"Since women gave up wearing
tight collars they have become
sweeter tempered," he said.
