would be good for wear at your an

show particularly pretty girlish
frocks and it ought to be easy to se

something simple with long straight
lines. A girl of your height at 17
should weigh about 120 pounds. The
best people do not attend public
dances; the company Is too
promiscuous and the tone of the
gathering is usually not high. Such

to private dances where the guests

Way Mrs. Durkee Received
Dr. Gibson's long, slender fingers
manipulated fittle Mrs. Durkee's
swollen foot and ankle as carefully
as possible, the while she struggled
gamely for composure, uttering no
outcry save pitiful little moans when
his touch set in motion some par
ticularly tortured nerve. But her
face , grew whiter and . whiter until
I was afraid that she would swoon
again, and I was glad, indeed, when

the electric warming pad and
straightened himself to his full
"There's nothing broken," he said
reassuringly, "but there's a nasty
sprain. Now, little lady, if you'll
just put that foot out here I'll fix
you up so it won't pain you."
He brought out a queer-looking,
queer-smelling unguent with which
he gently massaged the foot and
ankle, and then he! deftly bandaged
it in a manner to bring pangs of
envy to my Red Cross surgical rlass
"There," rfc said to me as he fin
ished, "just fix this pad so it wrll
keep at medium heat the rest of the
night, cover the ankle lightly with
something woolly, and give her this
in a few minutes. She'll forget her
troubles until morning, and then I'll
be on hand again."
This, was a pellet which I
knew was a powerful sedative, and I
saw that the physician had seen the
nervous strain under which his pa
tient was laboring, and meant to
give her a restful, if drugged sleep.
Doctor Is Firm.
"Wait a minute." Little Mrs. Dur
kee spoke decisively, and I saw the
color returning to her cheeks and
lips, knew that the relief of knowing
there were no broken bones, as well
as the assuagement of pain by the
bandaging of the ankle, had civen

down at her.

"Not much!" she retorted. "I'm

how long I've got to be cooped up
here. If you don't tell me I won't

girl as she glanced up at the physi

chin meditatively for a minute, then

Now, will vou be good?"
The Silent Glance.
My little neighbor searched his
face with eyes in which there was
childish cunning. But what she saw
in them evidently cowed her. for she
murmured in an abashed little voice:
"I'll do what you say."
"Then you must not leave this
room for two weeks at least, and in
every movement that you make you
must guard against jarring your
foot. It must be protected at all
times. Therefore you must have

"Oh-h, doctor!" the moan was as
genuine as if the pain in her foot
had caused it. "All my canning. But
