A Man never gets the full Joy our of a the moment he fancies be has a girl just where he wants her he begins to wonder if he wants her there. It is no feat these Days to make Man want to kiss you but. The Only sure Way to make him keep on want ing to kiss you. Is never to let him and that s where the feat comes when a Man is looking for amuse and fixings. Ment he wants a girl who likes to go put and be entertained but when he is looking for a wife he wants one who can safely be left at Home and forgotten during business hours Golf games and poker parties. 9 nothing so shocks and annoys a Man As to discover that a woman is actually being consistent love no longer makes a Man Blind but it still somewhat Dazzles him to that he can see himself supporting a limousine and Sables wife on a Olivver and near fur income.

When i arrived at the Day Nursery Lay so much Tress on our Promise to to which Frank goes whenever i go the dead to be so impresses to business everything was in order. The building was t on fire. Children weren t in any kind of mis chief. The attendants were about their kindly orderly business. You re getting to be a nervous i told myself As i remembered How i had run away from Spike Cor Coran and the Avenue and the holi Day spirit i might have enjoyed if i could Only keep myself on a Happy mood when it comes to me. But i took Little Frank away be cause i could t quite dismiss the sense of impending danger which had sent me Riding up the Avenue at a Speed defying rate such As i Don t often encourage in taxi Drivers. I decided to take Little Frauk Over to the restaurant in the Park and to make a Little Holiday out of letting him have his favorite Chicken Sand wich and chocolate while i indulged in my equally favorite Grapefruit on shipboard Lessing actually willed Jne the boy to recommended by mme Chernoff we were in the midst of the Mer Riest kind of a time when i realized that a Bulky figure was towering above us and that a familiar voice was getting me with a Gay Well if it in t pretty Little Anno and one of the handsomest gentle men i be Ever seen accompanying i looked up and there stood the great vocal teacher Diane Petruzzi. Once unknown to Fame As Dora Peters of Athens Georgia or not a recce. As her soft yet powerful hand enveloped mine and i smiled up Inlo the keen eyes under the Short grizzled hair i had the sudden comforting Assurance that i was t friendless in new York any longer. Did you set i asked with the usual banality. Too hot in Florida she said. I shut up shop and came Back Home to handle a few things before running Over to Paris to Sec what they Are doing at the opera Domique. I work hard you know. Wish i Coull persuade you to quit digging so lard a your Garden and rim around with me a Little gathering weeds. But if you ask me i la sit and have my Tea with you. And listen to the account of How you Cauich so suddenly by a son or i Cavalier or whatever it it is the of chances that brings you i smiled. And then As she had Tea and Frank Ami ii ail lunch i told her the Talo of the comr Mug German gentleman with whom Jim had once had such pleasant business relations and who had Given his baby in sacred to us. Jim never did like kids did asked Diane with a Large Mouthful of Toast depositing a Little runway of grease Down her Chin and a smile Little Frank which said she did like kids. Never. And he thinks i m silly to by the fact that when he was dying and Why Are you so asked Diane with a calmness that forced me to a Blank i Don t a not exactly. Rather a sense that i be got to keep Little Frank from Bis Lesoir Man his father was determined should never get him. _ a so there is another element Lou Haven t mentioned this Lesoir before. Tell me about but before i could speak Diane seized my Arm in a firm grip Ana put an a monitory toe on mine. For Little Frank was looking up and his baby face had a queer almost distorted expression As he said Hass once soil. Willt Jimrae a Schyia Elan Haven. Mutter sat the child s voice trailed off into unintelligible German and gradually it relaxed and he went Back to his Choco late which had held him completely since the moment he sent Diane pet Ruzzi a shy smile Atid gave me Over to her society and sought his devices instead of trying to amuse me As he had actually tried to do while we it re alone. You get did asked. He said he i re plied cautiously. But the rest of it was absurd. A child would t hate anyone who always wanted him to play. And a Mother would t try to Stop a child from i Don t Diane said quietly you Don t i laughed mothers want their children to amuse themselves by innocent play. And children Don t hate the people who want them to have a Good so you Diane remarked dry by. But there May be More in this than meets the eye., my dear How is Tell me i be got to make myself much i sighed. So i gave her Many More Partick inns about Little Frank Lessing and of the separation he had unwittingly caused Between Jim and me. The on i did not intend to Tell her that Jim had almost persuaded me to take the child abroad soc him with Lesoir. And try to Compromise Between my heart and my oddly insistent con Xci Cnoc. When i had finished my narrative she said thoughtfully this boarding House where you live won t be very Gay Over the Weck Conj will it my place always seems Verj big Iii Bare lion i first come Back i of Haven t a thing to do until Mon Day. Why not let me drive you Home. Pack a couple of bags for you and the Laddie and spend the next couple of Days i Don t see How t i he san in that stupid hesitant Way we have of meeting such situations. Sure you Diane urged so forcibly that i agreed. But i and no Way of guessing How different things would be i spent the next week end at Diano pet nazi s. To be continued listen world getting even by Elsie Robinson mrs. Roth has gotten even at ast. For three years she has been try no to get even. Way Back in the Winter of 1923 mrs Wilson said some Hing about mrs. Both. To be exact mrs. Wilson said that mrs. Roth was nagging old Hen and that or. Loth did t dare Call his soul his to aggravate the offence pretty mrs. Wilson smiled on Meek Lien pecked Jim Roth and Jim smiled Back. And mrs. Roth caught them railing. Silly trifles yes but out of those Illy trifles mrs. Roth has built a major tragedy. From the Day she saw that smile and heard that Idle chatter mrs. Roth has hated mrs. Wilson. She has t bated her with the passing petulant dislike which most of us feel when criticized. She has hated her with a thick Black hate that has permeated every thought of her mind every act of her body. From a spasm of anger that hate has grown into a that Over shadows All the world for Amy Roth. And she vowed she s get even. Three years ago she vowed she d get even. For All that time ghz has Bent herself toward keeping that vow. Last week she had her satisfaction. Last week she caught silly Little Clara Wilson in a compromising situation with a Man who was t her husband. Another woman would have gone her Way and sealed her lips. But Amy Roth went straight to Clara s hot tempered husband. And before the Sun had set he had drawn up divorce papers against his wife. She had broken Clara Wilson on the wheel she was Amy Roth really believes that she has gotten she thinks that by this act she has equalized the wrong which mrs. Wilson did that she has made a spiritual audit and up the books. But has she let s do a Little auditing our selves. For three years thirty sir months 105 Days Amy Roth has nursed a grudge against Clara Wilson. For All those Days hate has trickled its slow dark Poison through her system. Flow the Poison of Ianc is a very real thing. It in t att imaginary menace. It s As real a venom As strychnine or arsenic. It produces definite tangible results perceptible not Only to scientists but also to Lay spectators. It produces headaches hysteria indigestion melancholia and a Host of other vicious ailments. For 105 Days hate has produced these reactions in Amy Roth. It has in do her suspicious irritable and a self pity addict. It has caused a series of quarrels with her quarrels which have increased in bitterness. It has crushed the last ves Tige of her husband s affection and Given him an everlasting contempt for her. Her continual harping on her grievances has exhausted the patience of All her friends. They Are heartily sick of the Roth Wilson feud and Thoj unanimously condemn her recent action. And yet Amy thinks she has Cotton even she has t gotten even. She put herself hopelessly in the Hole. She has magnified the trivial offence against herself a million times. Noth ing mrs. Wilson could Ever have done to her Conj old approach in vicious nos what Amy has done to herself. That s the Way revenge works. Tithe poorest investment we can pos Sibly make. Every grudge no matter How justifiable is a cancer in life of the one who harbours it. Copyright. 1926, King features syn., inc by Fay King.

Snowdrift there has been some talk lately As to whether an architect should have his name put on the Beautiful build Ings that he has designed. I think that by All Means he should. It is is much a work of Art As a Canvas or a statue and should Bear the Signa Ture of the one who created it. If i were so Rich that i could afford to build a Beautiful building i would not Only wish to perpetuate the name of the architect who designed it for me but i would if Only in a Book for my own personal treasuring wish the name of every Man whose Effort helped make that dream come True. I never Admire a Beautiful Struc Ture without silently paying homage to the humbler unknown ones who were so necessary to its fulfilment talk talks fish menu by Mildred Kitchen.
