Adele Garrison's Ne Phase of
Revelations of a Wife
The "Surprise" Dicky Gave Into
Madge a Hands.
I walked steadily to the door when
Dicky had closed it after him, and
turned the key softly in the lock.
Then jylhmit undressing: I threw
myself on the bed in ia tempest of
the nervous tears which I had been
Stoically repressing for days.
All the pleasure afforded by
Dicky's championship of me against
hditlis slur concerning investiga
tors" had vanished, swallowed up in
chargin at his evident perturbation
because of the patent antagonism be
tween hd.it h and me. In vain 1 tried
to tell myself that his concern was
apparently as much on my account
; as on hdith s sanity had no part in
the hysteria which wa wreaking its
will on me. I wept and sobbed until
quivering and exhausted I mechani
cally drew a blanket over me and
It seemed no more than a minute
or two, although in reality it was
fully an hour before I was awakened
by peremptory knocking upon my
door. I started violently, calling in
n frightened tone:
"What is it?"
"Are you dead or just asleep?"
Dicky's voice came back in irritated
uccents. "I've been pounding Here,
for half' an hour. Let me in."
I am tised to his exaggerations, so
I knew that in all probability he had
knocked only twice or thrice before
the loud summons which had
awakened me. As I scrambled from
the bed I caught a mirrored glimpse
of myself by the light, which I bad
forgotten to switch off. Tear-stained
and swollen face, dishevelled, hair.
rumpled clothing-rl had only taken
off my gown when I threw myself
on the bed. I dreaded infinitely
Dicky's ' inev itable comment when
he should catch sight of me.
"For the love of Mike!" he ex
claimed when he beheld me he was
quite true to form, I reflected a bit
cynically "whatever in the world is
the matter with you?"
"I've Something to Ask You."
"Nothing," I returned a bit curtly.
' I was so tired that I lay down for a
bit before undressing, and I njust
have dropped off to sleep."
He looked at me searchingly for a
"Have it your own way. Far be it'
from me to pry into your inmost
heart. But I've got something to
iisk you, and I don't want you to get
your death of cold while Nyu'n;
listening. A hurry up and finish
undressing and get into bed. I'll
be back in 10 minufes." ' I
He turned on his heel without an
other glance at me. I knew that
despite his apparent- indifference he
had realized the nervous strain I had
undergone, and meant to give me
time to -pull myself together. ,
. I finished undressing, took down,
' combed and plaited my hair always
a soothing process to me bathed my
'tear-stained face, and, wrapping a
gayly colored kimono around me,
crept back into bed. Dicky ap
peared promptly at the end of the
'10 minutes he had named, bearing; in
his hands, to my great surprise a
steaming cup of coffee.
"Lucky Katie got in supplies to
day before she took her tantrum,
and put them all away in tie places
where they are generally kept. I
didn't have any trouble finding them.
This is camp coffee, made with cold
water, but I think it's pretty good,
for I drank a cup before I brought

That's what you always take, isn't
; A Quandary.
' I repressed the whimsical smile
which came to my lips at this ques
tion. One Itttrtp of sugar is my in
variable portion, .yet Dicky always
says "Two?" when serving me. I
detest more than one lump, but
something in the irrepressible boy
ishness of his look as he held it out
to me made me determined to swal
low it appreciatively ..if it were sick
"Thank you so, much, dear," I
said, as I sat up in bed-and held out
my hand for the cup.
Dicky handed it to me, then deftly
tucked the pillows back of me and
stood, waiting until I had finished
the surprisingly good coffee which
he had prepared.
; "There's nothing like a good cup
of coffee," he quoted his niother with
a twinkle ih his eye . as he took the
cud from, me and set it down upon
my table. Then he sat on the sidcj
of the bed, looked at me steadily lor
a second, and said quietly:
"I don't want you to violate any
confidence, but can you tell me
whether you and Lil agree with
Edith as to her theory of boys
breaking in here the other night?"

THE TALE OF
Mother Grouse's Children.
The very nest day after his first
lesson in hunting, when his mother
had brought home the live wood
chuck, Tommy .Fox went off into
the woods alone. He had made up
his mind that 4ie- woul i surprise his
mother by bringing home some nice
That same thing happened as
many as a dozen times:
Mother Grouse, with al) her 11 chil
dren I They were very young,"were
old Mother Grouse's children; and
they" hadn't yet learned to fly. And
they were, all on the ground, with
the proud old lady in their midst.
Tommy Fox was so pleased that
he almost laughed out loutl. He
tidbit for dinner a rabbit, perhaps,
or maybe a squirrel. He wasn't
quite sure what it would' be. be
cause you know when hunting you
have to take what you f ind -if you
can catch it.
Tommy Fox hadn't been long in
the woods before he had even bet
ter luck than he 'had expected. He
was creeping through a thicket,
making no noise at all, when what
should he see but tnat sly old
tried to keep still; but he couldn't
help snickering a little. And old
Mother Grouse heard .him. She
For a moment. 1 was too startled
to answer him. What could I say
to him, I asked myself. I knew that
Lillian emphatically did not agree
with Edith's theory, but on the other
hand I had no inkling beyond my
own fantastic guesses as to the di
rection in which my friend's investi
gations were leading her. In my
quandary I temporized.
"I have no theory myself, Dicky.
And as to Lillian I fancy she has
one, she generally does, but she
hasn't told me what it is."
He looked" at me again, the,n drew
something from, his pocket, some
thing which I recognized with a lit
tle gasp. , .
"You'd better give this to Lil," hi
said, "and tell her to add ito th
collection." . . ,
"This" was a small leather-framed
photograph of myself which I had
given to Dicky long ago. Through
the leather of the frame and across
the face of the photograph itself were
ugly slashes. '

started to fly. But instead of tear
ing off out of danger, she lighted
on the ground quite near Tommy.
"How stupid of her!" he thought.
"I'll just catch the old lady firs.t.
and then get the youngsters afterr
warct They can't flyaway."
So Tommy made a leap for old
Mother Grouse. He just missed her.
She rose in the nick of time and
slipped away from him. But she
didn't fly far. So Tommy followed.
And he stole . up very slyly; and
once more, when he was quite near
the old lady, he sprang at her.
1 was really very annoying. For
again old Mother Grouse just
escaped. Again she flew a little
further away, lighted on the ground,
and seemed to forget that Tommy
Fox was so near..
.That same thing happened as
many as a dozen times, And the
12th time that Mrs. Grouse rose
before one of Tommy's rushes she
didn't come down again. She lighted
in a tree. And since it appeared
to Tommy that she had no inten
tion of leaving her safe perch, he
gave up in disgust. He was very
angry because he hadn't caught old
Mother Grouse. But there was her
family! He would get them the
whole 11 of them! And he turned
back toward the place where he
had first come upon them.
Now, sly old Mother Grouse had
played a trick on Tommy Fox. If
he had just left her alone he could
have caught every one of her chil
dren. But she had tempted him to
follow her. And every time she rose
from the! ground and flew a short
distance, she led Tommy further
away from her little ones.
- Tommy had some trouble in find
ing the exact spot where he had
stumbled upon Mrs. Grouse and her
children. But he found it again, at
last. And little good it did him;
for not a trace of those 11 young
grouse could he discover. They had
all disappeared every single one of
them! They knew what to do when
their mother led Tommy Fox away.
Each of them found a safe hiding
place. Some of them burrowed be
neath the fallen leaves;1 some of
them hid behind old stumps; some
of them crept into a hollow log.
And try as he would, Tommy Fo

something. Yes! Tommy , Fqx
knew that if he ever met old Mother
Grouse and her family again he
would catch her children first.
Afterward he would iry to capture
the sly old lady herself. But he
didn't believe, just then, that he
would ever be able to catch her.
You sec, Tommy realized that he

Is "Maudy Thursday" So Called?
"Maudy," or as it is sometimes
called, "Shere Thursday," is known
on the ccclesistical calendar as "Holy
Thursday," the day before Good Fri
day, .the day on which, is com
memorated the Las Supper with the
Apostles. The word "Maundy'
comes through the old French
mandc from the Latin mandatum,
meaning a command, the reference
being to the words of Christ tit the
LasrSupper: "A new commandment
I give unto you, that ye love one
another." ... .
In early Christian times the chief
religious rite performed on Jhis day
was the washing of the feet of poor
persons or inferiors by the priest,
the prelate or some noble of the com
munity, as an act of humiliation and
penance, a custom which still sur
vives in certain sections where the
Roman or Greek Catholic church is
the official religion. Up until the
16th century every charity boy at ihe
Durham cathedral in England had
his face washed by a, monk, and
every monk then kissed the feet of
a boy, and give him 30 pence, seven
red herring, three loaves of bread, a
wafer cake and something to drink.
While the ceremony of washing
the feet of the poor has been grad
ually abandoned, it is still the custom
in many places to make Maundy
Thursday a day of alms-giving, a
practice which has led to the erron
eous statement that "Maundy" is de
rived from the' French word for
basket, supposedly on account cf the
fact that the alms were doled out-oj
large baskets carried on the arm.
