My HEART and
Adele Garrison's New Phase of

READ THE BEE WANT ADS FOR RESULTS
What Madge Did and Said to
Quiet Harriet Braithwaite.
I think my sister-in-law saw my
thought in my face, for she looked
up at me with eyes suddenly grown
"When you have lived as long
as I have, my dear." she said slow
ly, and I mentally braced myself to
hear something disagreeable I have
always found that the expression
generally prefaces something I
would rather' not hear "you will
learn that tenderness and devoted
attention are no especial criterion of
a man's love. Of course, they often
accompany it, but if a man is not a
cad or a beast, and has ceased to
love his wife he feels such a re
morse, such a desire to make up to
her for the thing he can no longer
give her, to save her from the know
ledge of her loss, that he is far more
devoted than the man whose heart is
wholly in his wife's keeping, and is,
therefore, careless about proving
I felt as if I were a small girl
again and had just been compelled
to swallow a nauseous dose of medi
cine, x could not deny that there
was a certain bitter plausibility about
her philosophy, but my whole be
ing protested against it.
"I think you are wr6ng," I said
hotly. "Why! If I believed that i
should be miserable all the time i
never would know whether
Her Morbid Cry. (
I stopped short for two reasons,
I was unwilling to discuss Dicky
with his sister, and the grim little
thought came to me that even if I
accepted her philsophy it would
rather reassure me than otherwise
accepted her philosophy it would
rather reassure me than otherwise
as to Dicky's love for me. His
tenderness and devoted attention
were not so uniformly conspicuous
as to warrant me in suspecting they
There was a hard note in the little
laugh she gave, but I subtly knew
that the hardness was not directed
toward me, but toward herself.
"You will not need to worry for
a number of years yet, not if you
keep the looks you possess, she re
torted. "But years from now, when
you look in your mirror and realize
that as far as your beauty is con
cened you are a corpse that ought
to be buried, then you will know
what suffering means, especially if
you are compelled to contrast your
appearance against the fresh, glow
ing beauty of a girl, who, through
uncontrollable circumstances, is
thrown into daily intimate contact
with your husband."
I did something then which I
never thought to do to my august
sister-in-law. I bent over her, and
taking her by her shoulders shook
"If I didn't realize that you are
really suffering over this, Harriet,"
I said severely, "I should shake you
until your teeth chattered, and
laugh myself into hysterics while I
was doing it. Qf all the ridiculous
rot I ever heard that is the limit.
Oh, you aren't the first one I've
heard say it, but I never heard
a woman of your brains and
looks say it before! Do you realize,

my dear, that you are one of the
most stunning women I have ever
seen, and that your husband looks,
quite an old man beside you?"
His "Other Self."
I did not give her a chance to an
swer or to protest, but rushed on to
say the things I have been compelled
to leave unmuttered many other times
when I have heard similar senti
frrents expressed by women "in the
"There are fools, of course,
among middle-aged men, just as
there are congenital idiots among
women. But I do believe, Harriet,
that this idea, so carefully fostered
by neurotic persons, that a middle
aged wife is in constant danger of
having her husband's affections wan
der from her, is a horrible fallacy.
Husbands and wives who have gone
down the years shoulder to shoulder
as comrades, aren't apt to give any
thing more than a passing admiring
glance at youth or beauty. I don't
imagine that Edwin is worrying
about his gray hair and the old lines
behind his ears, and his - sagging
cheek muscles suffering because he
thinks you have been attracted by
seme handsome young interne in his
hospital do you?"
"How absurdly ridiculous 1" Her
voice was disdainful, but I caught a
lessening of tension in it neverthe
less. No more ridiculous, honestly.
Harriet, than your. idea. Why,
you are your husband's other self!
He is . perfectly lost without you.
I'll water he never had a disloyal
thought toward you."
Not a conscious one, I II admit,
she said, "but I was not blind, Mar
garet, and, Katherine is such an
adorable girl, I don't see how he
could help "
"Of course he was attracted by
her." There was no use my denying
this fact, which Katherine herself
had told me, "but did it ever occur
to you, Harriet, that his feeling for
her was simply an -outburst of
thwarted fatherhood, a longing for
the daughter he has never had, who
might have been just such a girl?
Think it over."
I kissed her and went swiftly out
of the room.
