Holding a Husband
Adele Garrison'! New Phase of
Revelations of a Wife
The Things Dicky Had to Say on
Leila Wedding Morning;. 1
Leila's wedding dayl
. I awakened early in the morning
and looked eagerly through the win
dews of the "sun parlor" to re
whether my little friend would be
a bride whom "the sun shhes on."
I knew enough of her intensely
feminine nature to be sure that rain
or shadows upon her wedding day
would distress her immeasurably,
and was glad ir.Jcrd to see the sun
rising clear and bright.
The wedding ceremony was to be
lead at 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
but Dicky and I had been bidden J
to come to the old Paige hoinetori
breakfast with the members of the
wedding .party, Major Grantland
ami two or three l'aige "cousins."
Leila had expressed a wish to liavt:
the pink and white dogwood blos
soms piled against the holly and
pine branches which banked the
walls of the stately drawing room,
and "Cousin" Jim Paige had
promptly promised that he would
head a party of wedding guests who
would go to the woods and bring
in and arrange the blossoms at an
hour near enough to that set for
the ceremony to insure their keep
ing their treshness.
I o tell the truth, l wa'n t ex
ceedingly enthusiastic over the
tuorning s program. 1 he presence
in the same party of Dicky, Edith
Fairfax, "Cousin" Jim Paige, Hugh
Grantland and myself promised
complications, which, even if thev
were not unpleasant, might well
prove more or less embarrassing.
That Edith Fairfax careJ hope
lessly tor Dicky I had long known,
and Cousin Jim Fame had con
titled to me his feeling for Edith
when we were seated next each
ether at the dinner "Aunt Dora"
had given. I had seen also his
jealousy of Dicky, something which
had worried me absurdly. Then,
too, there was always before my
imagination the . possible conse
quences of the jealous feeling which
Dicky cherished toward Hugh
Grantland a feeling concerniiif,
which I acquitted myself of all
tlaine, but which I was just enough
to acknowledge was warranted by
ihe officer's attitude- toward me.
There was no way out of the af
fair, however, and I rose and
ri-essed as quietly and rapidly "ui
possible, that Dicky might have the
''room to himself when he should
awaken. We have been accustomed
su long to the really spacious quar
ters of our house at Marvin, with a
la-ge room for each of us, rhat it h
irksome to Dicky to crowd his be
longings into a small room whicV
he must share with me.
I, was not successful, however, in
my attempt, for as I was arranging
my hair in front of the mirror,
Dicky's voice startled me into drop
ping my brush.
A Storm Averted.
"What the devil are yon up at this
unearthly hour lorr he asked. Oh.
I remember, that jamboree over at
the Paige, menage! Well. I'll tell
the world I feel more like turning
over for another 40 winks than I
do like trotting through the woods
looking for dogwood blossoms! If
that isn't. just like a woman, up
setting everything to get just the
kind of flowers she wants."
"As it happened, a man 'upset
things' this particular time," I an
swered demurely, picking up my
hair brush. "As I understand it,
Leila simply said she loved the dog
wood blossoms, and would like to
Irive them around her, and Dr. Jim
Paige promptly organized this hunt
"Oh, of course, he could be dc
puit'ed on to roll over and play
dca-1 when either of the Fairfax sis
ii'rs lifted a finger!" Dicky growled.
"There's devotion for you! He's
so dead in love wih Edith that he'll
get up at this hour in the morning
to hunt for flowers for her sister's
vedJing. That's his own business,
however, but why in thunder he has
to rope in the rest of us " ;
lie was stretchir.g and flexing his
mcstles now. his inevitable pre
liminary to rising. ' I finished my
hair, arranged my side of the bureau
in orderly fashion, and hastily de
parted to my own side of the room
to finish dressing. I did not want
to and any trine to the annoyance
lie evidently was feeling.
"Gad. but that Jellow makes me
Mck," he went on. "He and the
derh ruaiah ought to be tied to-i
gather and left in the woods some
where until they get a little sane
again. Of all the mooning calves
I ever saw in my life they're the
limit! But 1 suppose women like
th:.t sort of thing." x
. Now this speech brought me
several moods ' in flashing succes
sion. First, anger, for I knew that
he meant me. Second, jealousv, be-
juilun rlir rcpnfiHl Tim
Pnige's feeling toward . Edith I Fair
fax. And then Dotn were awaneu
;-.y a sense of the ridiculous which
sometimes rises to the surface from
some depth in my nature and drives
ltsser waves of feeling back.
' I turned to Dicky; striking a pose
of reverential admiration.
"What colossal wisdom!" I ex
claimed saucily. "T Sandys on wo
rn?!) 1 Really, dear, you ought to re
tire to a cave and be a hermit or a

"If you don't get out of here.'
Dickv interrupted grinning, "I'll
stoee a cave man stunt that II keen
you away from that breakfast. Now
beat it and let me dress."
Is a Vitten a safe pet for a 2-jar-old
This is ardebatable question. If
the kitten is perfectly clean, and if
the child is very gentle, a kitten may
be a safe pet. On the whole, how
ever, it would be better to wait until
the child is 5 or 6 years old a 2-year-old

Do We Stretch When Tired?
(Copyright. 1940, by tha Wheeler
Just as a yawn is the natural
impulse of the body' to bring
more oxygen to the lungs by in
haling a larger amount of air
than is obtainable through ordin
ary breathing, the action of
stretching one's arms expands the
chest and naturally causes a
greater inflow of oxygen which
the body realizes that it needs.
We extend the arms, open the
mouth and contract the arteries
for a moment. The heart, there
fore, works the harder to pump
the blood through the body and
especially through the lungs,
thereby taking advantage of
every particle of the. additional
The desire to stretch is usually
connected with a feeling i'of
drowsiness or fatigue, because a
desire for rest is a sign that the
body is tired and is seeking a
stimulant of some kind either
sleep or an extra . amount of
oxygen, the fuel which keeps the
"human furnace burning as it
should. The satisfied feeling
which follows a good "stretch"
is due to the fact that the blood
has received a sufficient supply
of the material which it needs,
and also because of the change
in the position of the muscles of
the arms and chest which have
become fatigued through remain
ing too long in .one position.

After bidding Brownie Beaver
good-morning, Mr. Frog yawned
widely, remarking that he had been
out late the night before, "at a singing-party,"
he said. "What can I
do for you?" he asked Brownie Bea

of clothes," Brownie told him.
"You must be mistaken," Mr. Frog
replied. "I don't remember you.
I'm not making any suit for you."
At that Brownie Beaver became

I can't see my feet!" He bent ever
and cazed down where his feet ought
