. "That very same day the wicked
farmer went to market with some
vegetables to sell. As he was sitting
in the market, St. Nicholas appeared
before hiin. He had on his mitre and
his long robes, jut as you see him
in Kit's cake.
"'Have you any pork to sell?' St.
Nicholas asked the man.
" 'Nr said the farmer.
" 'What of the three young pigs in
your brine tub in the cellar:' said
"The farmer saw that his wicked
deed was found out as all wicked
deeds are, sooner or later. Me fell
on his knees and begged the good
saint to forgive him.

the man's houe and dropped some
money through a broken window."
. "Why did he do that?" asked Kat.
"Because the man was selling his
daughters to get money. If he had
money enough, he wouldn't sell
them. . -
"The first night St. Nicholas
dropped enough money to pay for
the eldest daughter. The next night
he took a purse of gold for the sec-
end daughter, and dropped down
the chimney. It fell down right in
front of the man, as he was getting
a coal to light his pipe. The third
night the man watched; and when
St. Nicholas came, the door flew
open and the man rail out. He
caught St. Nicholas by his long robe
and held him.
" 'O St. Nicholas, servant of the
Lord,' he said, 'why dost thou hide

The Questions That Troubled
Madge The Vow She Made.
Am I a successful wife?
Have I made my husband happy?
If he were free to espouse a wife
again, and had 110 feeling oftobliga
tion toward 111c, would he, with all
the knowledge of nic he has ac
quired, choose me again from all
the world to walk by his side till
"death do us part?"
These are the questions which arc
beating on my brain today. These
are the queries, the answers to
which I mean to make it my busi
ness to find.
It is a time of matrimonial stock
taking with me, this dreary day of
earliest spring, when a cold drizzle
outside, effectually banishing the
sunshine, has found its reflection in
my own spirits. I mean to cast up
accounts with myself and find out if
fhave been cheating Dicky, my hus
band, in this matrimonial game, if
perchance he has been defrauding
me, or if we, after all, have struck
a fair balance.
Did I say matrimonial game?
What a misnomer! If ever there
was a serious, solemn biisiness in
the world's whirl of 'affairs it is the
business of marriage. And if ever
there was a job requiring all the
tact, ability and resourcefulness
which a woman possesses it is this
job known to womankind .of "hold
ing a husband."
I wonder if I have made good
upon my particular job.
I remember, .years before I met
Dick)', hearing Mrs. Stewart, the
dear old woman with whom my
mother and I boarded, quote caus
tically: "Any fool can marry a man, but
it takes a wise woman to keep one."
I have not thought of the words in
years, but oday they have been
ringing insistently in my ears. With
them as, a yard stick I have been
measuring not ojily my own marital
career, but those of the people I
have known intimately since that
Lillian and Harry Underwood! Of
course, Lillian's name comes first to
my mind in any mental survey of
my friends, for I hold her above all
women, reverence her judgment and
her high ideals. And yet, measured
by the little yard stick, Lillian has
failed, for two men "have called her
wife and then deserted her.
But was it possible for anv
woman to have kept the love of
either man? More potent question
sun, was the love of either worth
60 seconds' of any true woman's ef
fort? Honesty compels a negative
answer to both questions.
Both Dicky and I, her nearest
friends, know how bravely and tru
ly she tried to do the right thing
in the harrowing situations which
confronted her. I felt instinctive
ly that if in that long past time
when Robert Savarin, rising artist,
had set the feet of Lillian Gale,
eager acolyte, in the path she so
ardently desired, he had also claimed
the love he had unconsciously won,
he would have been spared the
years of mental darkness that later
came to him because of another
woman, and Lillian would have es
caped the bitter unhappiness that
has been her portion.
She would have kept his love and
reverence always I am sure of it
and the grim determination rises
within 111c unswervingly to further
the lonely artist's seemingly hope
less task of overcoming her Quixotic
scruples against marrying him.
By Other Standards.
Jack Bickett and Katherinc? My
tir.-.t1iAi--miicin nnrl th woman

in my scale ot mentis. 1 dismiss
them quickly, for Katherine has
"made good" if ever a woman has,
and the bitterness which was their
portion, and which it was my good
fortune to dispel, was all of Jack's
making, That they arc happy now in

which reflect her moods in every

when cducaticrh and training have
not sharpened one's perceptions
and one's nerves?
I return to the contemplation of
my own problem with my spirits
both staggered and strengthened. I
have seen the stupendous task with
which each woman I call friend has
had to deal, but I have been heart
ened to the thought that in any
case where the man was a possible
human being the game lay unmis
takably in the wife's hands. And
Dicky, bless his heart, is distinctly
possible, however otherwise I may
think sometimes when his instabil
ity or his jealous rages make me
My thoughts go back to my wed
ding day, to the wild, wonderful
bliss of that honeymoon time, yes
and to the doubts that beset me
even then as to the probability of
happiness in marriage.
How much I have learned since
that time, learned that if there be
no happiness "in marriage there is
certainly nothing outside its charmed
circle which -can bring such bliss
and contentment that she and the
man she loves belong to each other
wholly, irrevocably, together, "for
better, for worse," with all the rest
of the world outside.
Learned, too, with a tremendous
fear at my heart, that there could be
no greater tragedy in the world for
me thary the loss of my husband's
love. If I want any peace in this
life it behooves me to make, good
on my job as e.
Curiously enough, it has been the
trembling inquiry of a girl on the
brink of marriage which has set me
to the self-inquiry, the mental stock
taking of the last hour.
Leila Fairfax came to my room
this morning. She is id be married
to Alfred Durkce in a few weeks,
and I have invited the motherless
girl to be my guest while she is pre
paring her simple trousseau. Put
ting her arms around me she said
earnestly, with a hint of tears in her
What Leila Asked.
"Madge, dear, tell me I am so
frightened isn't it an awfully ,hard
task being a successful wife-? You
and Dicky always seem so happy,
and yet I know you must have had
your iJhare of troubles as well as
Sister says. the
trouHe's done out
other women. And I feel as if I
knew so little, and and I do want
to make Alfred a good wife.'!
The tears were overflowing now.
I saw that the girl was over
wrought, and wondered for an un
worthy, fleeting minute if her re
membrance of little studio parties
in which her sister, herself and
Dicky had figured, innocently
enough, yet without my presence,
wis troubling her now that she her
self faced the possibility of being
the wife who stayed at home while
her husband tnjoyed himself else
where. But in another second I
had banished that thought and was
assuring her emphatically that all
her fears were unfounded.
"You . foolish child," I scolded.
"There's one thing certain. A
teary wife is the worst possible
kind. So stop crying and listen to
words of wisdom from an author
ity. Yoivre going to make Alfred
the best possible wife, and you're
going to be idiotically happy. Now
run along and dry your eyes, or Al
fred will see that you have been
crying and think you don't want to

her, tears, and I have been sitting
here ever since going over and ovcrf
