Just three months from the day on which the armistice was signed a mammoth ship, largest of all things in the world, steamed into the harbor of the metropolis of the Western hemisphere. Every person on the west side of that citv was made aware of its approach, for a giant siren cleared its throat and let forth a long-drawn-out bellow, which died down to a gurgle, rose and fell again and again.
The siren, located on the roof of a skyscraping building, was fulfilling a mission quite different from that for which it had been designed. It had been installed to give warning of enemies In the air should they come. German air raids? Who remembered, now, that they had ever been feared?
One of thousands who had helped to make of that fear a thing to be laughed at, and who was now leaning over the rails of the Leviathan receiving the tumultuous welcome of flag and steam whistle extended by the city, was Sergt. Charles Brenden, typical of all, for though slight of build and of medium height, he was well set up, with clear blue eyes and possessed of that confident air which belongs to a man who has proved himself equal to any emergency.
It might be hours before they docked. The huge craft was surtound-ed by tiny, puffing tugs, pulling, pushing and coaxing, like ants as they force an object far larger than themselves to do their will. But they were hom^home! And the welcome was all they had dreamed. Eagerly their
eyes searched the.shores for well-remembered landmarks; gayly they scrambled fcr the papers, cigarettes and candy thrown on board from the small craft bearift the mayor’s committee of welcome.
Charles’ thoughts ran on ahead, ot course, after today, things would quiet down. They would entrain for a camp for demobilization. Then to the city that wonderful city whose jagged skyline he recognized in almost every d^ tail. And right away after that his job in the city office of an out-of-towm silk manufactory.
On Saturday morning Brenden was mustered out, and that afternoon he arrived in town along with many of bis comrades. The hurry and bustle, jangle and clatter of the traffic was music to his ears.
The avenue w'as decorated in his their-—honor. The scene thrilled almost as much as on the day when their ship entered the harbor. Charles cro.ssed to Sixth avenue and took the Li—no underground route for hini today. To feast his eyes on the life and movement of his native city appealed more than a greater speed.
Alighting at Sixty-sixth street, Charles pi-oceeded straight to his old boarding place. And then ihe welcome began all over again, ^or Miss Johnson nnWered the bell; and she was one of that rare species, a kind-hearted lady. For an elderly spinster her kiss was not a bad imitation of what a mother’s might be. Anyway, it seemed like that to Charles, who had no recollections of the genuine thing.
His room was awaiting him, its last occupant having been unceremoniously ousted In his behoof. Everybody rejoiced at his return. Elderly Mr. BeclA with blew him to dinner and a show that night, Sunday was spent in^look-Ing up some friends.
So altogether this war veteran of twenty-three was in a happy mood Monday morning when he started down town to see the “boss” about getting back on the job pretty soon and to say “hello” to the office force.
It was so early that only old Gruber, the janitor, was on hand; but he started the welcome and it grew as the force gathered for the daily grind. Only two others besides himself had left the office for the service and he was the first one back. So Charles knew most of the staff and soon met the others. They bombarded hiip with questions and, of course, were thanked again for his Christmas box.
“But who sent that dandy warm sweater?” Brenden asked. “The card read, ‘From a girl with brown eyes.’ ” His eyes followed those of two chaps who stood nearby to the ^ge of the little group—and straight Into/those of
▼mce Charl^ what hii' imposrthia thing that was Just now. CKBce expenses had been cut. ISie mill was not running full time; orders had fallen off—“the war, you know—ended too soon; business was not prepared for it,” etc.
So Charles, 'one of those who had risked all to end the war “too soon,” found himself hoist by his own petard.
Mr. Hubert continued, telling him they had filled his place with a girl at $5 less per week, “and she had proved very satisfactory; perhaps. If the returned soldier was willing to accept a reduction—
Brenden was not a qnlck-spoken young man and before. In his righteous wrath, he could frame a fitting reply, something happened.
She of the brown eyes burst Into the room, the eyes full of flashing light and bending them fixedly on the manager said: “I wish to resign immedi
ately, Mr. Huber. Yes, I heard what you said,” she continued, not" giving the boss a chance to reply ; “and what I think I should hate to say. I Uve in the home town of this concena and know the owners. I kno^# the \amp-sura plan that this office is Pun on, too and into whose pocket that five dollars a week that you knocked off my pay goes. I just took this place to do my share during the war and now I’m go ing home to rest. If you give Mr Brenden his job back, with a raise’ and here she glanced for the first time at the soldier—“I’ll keep still. If you don’t—well, you know the owners motto is ‘A job for every soldier.’
Huber, grown first red and then white, tried unsuccessfully to meet the angry eyes of the girl. Then, because he knew she had the goods on him, he turned suddenly back to his desk and flung over his shoulder at Brenden: “Report tomorrow morning.”
The girl hurried from the room. Brenden, wasting no more time than was necessary to answer “Yes, sir” In a tone equally curt, took himself out of the offices and the building, and on the sidewalk awaited the appearance of the brown-eyed heroine.
Soon she came out of the entrance, and before she saw him he saw there were tears in her ej’es. The dinky litf tie overseas cap came off and Charles faced her. The girl sought to escape, but Charles was not to be denied—and he was not to be denied truthful answers to his questions, either.
Over there Private, Corporal, then Sergeant, Brenden had acquired the quality of mastery.
And when he learned that the statements she had made to the manager wore only part way true and that there was neither home, parents nor job awaiting Mary in her home town—and least of all rest—but only the grim reality of a search for another position, he arose to the emergency and made her understand that many couples started in on a salary no greater than that which her courageous interposition had secured for him.
“But it’s all so terribly sudden I” she protested.
“So was Oiateau-Thlerry,”. said
“Well,” succumbed she of the brown eyes, “you outrank me. Sergeant Bren-(jen—I don’t suppose I dare refuse to obey. And, by the way, Ay name’s Mary Henderson.”
“Who cares?” said Charles. “It’ll be Brenden by twelve o’clock. Forward, march!”

The charm of novelty belongs to “costume jewelry,” which is chosen for the sake of color or because it accentuates a style in dress, or merely because it is smart and fashionable. However fine and beautiful real jewels may be their owners tire of always wearing the same pieces and take to passing fads with as much relish as if they were jeAvelless. Just now there is a vogue for necklaces and beads of all kinds, with Chinese and East Indian designs featured among numberless others, including old Venetian and American Indian ideas.
In costume jewelry, that is jewelry which is not made of precious metals or stones, there is one abiding favorite, and that is the necklace of good pearl beads. Other things may come and go, but they go on forever, because they are so like the beautiful genuine pearls. Good, even strands orf pearl beads cost more now than in days before the war, but there is a great range in prices for them, depending upon color, luster, degree of destructi-bility and the evenness with which the beads are strung.
The handsomest Chinese beads, of imitation jade and carved ivory and of composition or glass, are often' strung on very handsome silk cord. The strand usually supports a large
water and cook, adding the fish; when all are tender add milk, some crackers soaked in boiling watei*, salt and pepper to taste. Serve in soup bowls.
Scallop of Pork and Cabbage Place' a layei^ of thinly sliced roast pork, using two cupfuls, a cup and a half of cooked cabbage and a cupful and a half of white sauce, arranged in layers in a baking dish. Put into
medallion of carved ivory or jade, or whatever material makes the bead, with some mystic figure or character wrought in it which looks equal to warding off bad luck and is probably intended to make its wearer feel secure. Very handsome and brilliant jet beads, sometimes alternating with sparkling crystal beads on the string, have many admirers among older women, while smooth white coral, or white splashed with pale pink, are lilved for girls and young women. Everyone envies the ówner of a strand of carved Ivory beads and next to everyone wears a necklace of the most brilliant red in opaque beads, of all sizes and shapes. The color of every jewel under the sun is imitated in glass beads and in mock jewels set in metal and joined by metal chains. Among these women find the necklace that matches their frocks or those that provide a contrasting color touch. Happy she is who has among her possessions a strand of amber beads, and thrice blessed is the owner of a necklace of opals. Then, the strands of gold or silver Jjeads which one sees so ra^ly, are again in favor, for these have their imitations that answer the purpose of costume jewelry. It would not be easy to find a style of jeweled neck chain or necklace which is not now represented.

Sheer Blouses • Russian Style
The dictionary will tell you that “Ain’t it?” Is a barbarism and that “ain’t” is solely a colloquialism for “am not” and “are not” and quite illiterate in its indication of the speaker’s status. But the Latin language, which though dead is not yet buried, has the phrase “Anne,” which means “Is it not?” and the French, which roughly writing is monkish Latin, had in the days of Francois Villon, the acknowledged Tounder of modem French literature, the verbalism “Enne?” which is the precise equivalent of “Ain’t it?” Now, this delicious scapegrace of the times of Joan of Arc, in unique and celebrated “Greater
Testament,” characterizes “Isabeau,” one of his numerous flames, as distinguishable for constantly tislng this query “Enne?” So all these colloquial-Isms which the pedagogues and the lexicographers so profoundly reject have fair foundations In usage. It ought to be remembered that Villon’s works at the very dawn of printing ran through seven editions, “donyon-chno?”

The Russian blouse has many admirers whose allegiance never falls, and every time a new Interpretation of It appears on the horizoq of fashion’s world they give It a heartfelt welcome. Jhst now Russian blouses are arriving ÜP considerable force, made of sheer fabrics and of all the supple, lightweight silks that Insure flowing Haes. Beginning with fine net and laces the blouse proceeds through crepe georgette and chiné to silk jersey
and satins that have the same softness and to the new weaves in silk that belong to the tricolette family. In all Of these It proves graceful and fascinating. _ ,
’Iieaving out all the others and considering only the enchanting models shown in crepe georgette, we find both the plain and figured varieties used and thai the charm of this beautiful fatelc goes far In itself toward making the success of the blouses.
