Hall Bonlstelle. artiat-photographer. pre-
pares for the day'* work tn his studio.
Flodle Fisher, his assistant, reminds him
of a party he is to give In the studio that
night. and that his business Is In bad
financial shape. Mr. Dorumuii. attorney
and Justice of the peace, calls ami Informs
Hall that hia Uncle John's will has left
him 14,000,000 on condition that lie marry
before his twenty-eighth birthday, which
begins at midnight that night. Mrs. nana
Royalton calls at the studio. Hall asks
her to marry him She agrees to give
hljn an answer at the party that night.
Mlas Carolyn Dallys calls. Hall proposes
to her. She agrees to give him an an-
swer at the party Rosamund Gal \ art
model, calls. Hall tries to rush her Into
an Immediate marriage. She, too. defers
her answer until the evening. Flodle tries
to show Hall a certain way out of the
tnlxup, but he Is obtuse. Jonas Hasslng-
bury, heir to the millions In case Hall
falls to marry on time, calls.
Flodle stared at him fascinated, as
a bird by a snake. Try as she could.
It was impossible to deny bis accusa-
"Hold on a minute, now!" He shook
bis finger impressively. "I'd give a
good deal if 1 was satisfied he wouldn't
be married before midnight."
Flodle could stand It no longer. It
was useless to attempt to hide her
feelings from this man. Her heart
was bursting. "Oh, so would I, if I
had the money!" she cried, woebe-
Jonas leaned back, with a smile of
victory on his face. "Wall, I guess
I got to the woman of It at last," he
gloated. "All women Is just alike,
when you come right down to It. 'One
man among a thousand have I found;
but a woman among all those have 1
not found'—that is, different. But
that's neither here nor there. I sua-
pected you was sweet on Hall; your
face give you dead away. Wall, then,
miss," he brought It out deliberately,
"seems to me our Interests ought to
"What d'you mean?" Something in
Flodie's subconsciousness was awak-
"You, bein' a woman, don't want him
lo marry anybody else. Wall, neither
Jo I." He watched her closely, heart-
"I see," said Flodle frigidly, "be-
cause you'd lose a fortune."
"Oh. it ain't the money, miss, don't
you misinterpret my motives. I don't
want a cent of it for myself. It's what
I can do with It. See here; If Hall
gets that money, he's bound to throw
It away on all sorts of foolishness. If
he marries tonight, some sheep-head-
ed, extravagant woman will have the
spendln' of it." He watched the shaft
strike Flodle, and went on. "Whare-
as, If i inherit it—why, I got my plans
all laid out a'ready." He leaned for-
ward earnestly. "Why, do you know,
miss, they's heathen in the tropics
what don't know what clothes be, let
alone the Bible. They tell me they
ain't a toothbrush nor a pair o' corsets
In all Polynesia. And all of them mis- j
erable niggers got to be damned ever
lasting. Then they's hospitals I in-
tend to endow, and tracts ought to be
printed." But Flodie's eyes were cast
down. He saw that he had lost his
audience, and came back to his best
argument. "Think o' Hall's wife
throwin' that cash round on parties,
and low-necked dresses—to say nothin'
o' balls and concerts and theaters!"
"Well," Flodle said, with a pathetic
look in her face, "I don't see what we
can do about It. He's made up hlB
mind to marry tonight, and he's al-
ready proposed to three women."
Jonas whistled long and low.
"Looks like we got to get to work in
a hurry, don't it? See here, miss," he
spoke slowly and emphatically. "You
can do it. Why, women is born for
tricks like this. What's that Jeremiah
says? 'A woman shall compass a
man.' That's right, too. You'll find
a way and depend on me to help all
I can. What d'ye say ?"
Flodie's mind had already jumped
to the task. Why not try to save Hall?
•—that was the excuse she gave her-
self. To be dlaloyal to him was un-
thinkable, but to prevent a lifelong
unhappiness due to his marrying any-
one of the three women he had pro-
posed to—ah, that was another thing!
What if she could accomplish it, and
get the best of this scheming hypo-
crite Into the bargain? There was a
magnificent chance for a woman's
strategy! Suddenly the thought came,
beautiful, complete. She jumped up
•xcitedly. "I know!" she cried.
"What? Got an idee a'ready?" Jo-
"Yes! I'll tell you. I'm going to
get those three women together In this
room—and then—I'll just let nature
take its course! If something doesn't
happen, then I don't know anything
Jonas chuckled, delighted. "Wall,
th t will be a picnic, won't ltl By
Jlmlny, I'd like to Bee the fun!"
"No," said Flodle, "you'll have to
leave. I've got lots to do, If I'm to
manage this thing, and I've got to do
It alone. Now, let's see! Walt a mln-
ute—Hall'a giving a party tonight
Suppose I tell him that I invited you,
find vou come round at about eleven
o'clock Then I'll tail you bow mat
"Eleven o'clock! Lord, 1 generally
git to bed by ten."
"You won't tonight, then. Better
drink some coffee if you're sleepy
And I guess It'll be worth sitting up
for. Good afternoon, Mr. Hassing-
bury!" Flodle did not offer to shake
Jonas gazed at her in ever-growing
admiration. "Say, miss," he ventured,
"It ain't often I get loony over a wom-
an. I don't trust 'em enough. But
I've took consider'ble fancy to you,
somehow. You got a good head on
your shoulders, you have!"
Flodle evaded his hand. "Well, It's
likely to stay there, I'm afraid. At
any rate, it'll never be on yours, Mr
With which Flodle went, without
honoring him with another glance.
Into the stockroom, leaving him to
take his departure alone.
After Jonas Hasslngbury had left.
Flodle went to the telephone and
called up a number.
"Mrs. Royalton- . . . Yes, this is
Miss Fisher—at Mr. Bonistelle's, you
kuow . . . about your ptctures . . .
Could you drop in this afternoon and
see some proofs? . . . Oh. yes,
lovely, I think . . . About three
o'clock, If you will . . . Good-by!"
Next she called up Miss Dallys, and
said nearly the same thing; both la-
dies agreed to call. But how about
"It's Hard to Ketch You Alone, You
Rosamund? She wandered from stu-
dio to studio. Well, Flodle must risk
it. Perhaps she could be found later.
Meanwhile she had much to do. She
flew back to the printing room, and
went to work on the negatives. They
must all be finished before the ladies
arrived, that they might suspect noth-
ing. Quickly her fingers flew. Sud-
denly she looked up. Who was that
in the office? Flodle went fn and
found Alfred the Pale, with a big
bunch of evergreen garlands. He
pulled off his hat and grinned.
"Will I fix up the studio now?" he
"Yes," said Flodle, "right away."
She held up a proof of Carolyn Dallys
and Inspected it critically. Alfred,
meanwhile, was regarding his Idol.
"Well, why don't you go ahead about
It?" Flodie inquired severely.
"Say, Miss Fisher," Alfred set down
his bundle and approached her. "It's
so hard to ketch you alone, you
"No, 1 don't. We must have those
decorations up in a hurry." Flodle,
however, did see something In the
poor janitor's face which made her
start hastily for the stockroom.
"Oh, I know It ain't no use, Miss
Fisher, but It'll be a satisfaction even
to be throwed down. It'll be some-
thing, anyway. I can't stand It any
Flodie stared at the hopeless janitor.
Faint heart ne'er won fair lady, but
still, his look was flattering. There
was a mild balm In his devotion, as he
fawned on her. It softened her heart.
"Now, Alfred," she began, "don't you
"I just can't help it, Miss Fisher!"
he exclaimed. "I got to be silly! If
I didn't see you every day, here—oh,
dear, ain't they any hope for me? Not
He waited a moment, wistfully. Flo-
die watched him with a curious far-
away interest, as at an Injured animal.
Then she said gently, "It's not use, Al-
fred. You know I couldn't possibly. I
don't want you to say another word
about It." Flodie, as she spoke, fin-
gered a thin gold chain about her
neck. Dangling, warm on her breast,
was a tiny golden locket, one of Hall
Bonistelle's few gifts, treasured jeal-
ously by Flodle, worn night and day.
Alfred Smallish had already giveu
up all hop*. "Oh, I know," he said
apathetically. "Of courts I'm nothin
but a Janitor—now—but Miss Fisher,
if I only had you I'd show 'em And-^
say, don't go yet, please, Miss Fisher—
wait till I get rid of it for once and fo*
all—It'll do me good—you wouldn't
ever have the likes of me, I know—
that ain't all of It—It's only I want to
do something for you, just to prove
how I feel! If I could only help you
some way!—don't you understand how
It is, Miss Fisher? Won't you give ms
a try sometime? That's all I want
Flodle, leaning against the table
watched him with tears in her eyes.
Ah, Flodle understood! How well she
knew! She could no longer laugh at
him. Kindly she stretched forth her
hand; and the janitor who, In all his
life had uever known gallantry,
reached for It, and kissed it as natu-
rally as might a courtier. He touched
Flodie's little hand as if it were a holy
relic; and on it there fell a soft rain
Flodle bit her lip; she slowly shook
her head. "I'm awfully sorry, Alfred,
really; but I don't see what I can do.M
Alfred's lips quivered, and his hands
writhed as he replied: "Why, all I
want you to do Is to promise, Miss
Fisher—ask me to do something for
you. Something hard to do. The very
hardest thing you know. Why, I'd do
anything. Miss Fisher, anything!"
Alfred meant literally what he said
She put her soft hand in his. "1 know
what you mean, Alfred," she said so-
berly. "You're so good! I'll call on
you if ever I need you. I'll promise."
She turned a little sadly back to her
"All .1ght." Alfred's look feasted on
her. He paused by the door. "It's
really more than I ever hoped for, Miss
Fisher, what you just said! Thank
you!" He left, almost with dignity.
Flodie turned to her work. From
the telephone to her printing she vi-
brated, and from that to her accounts,
occasional inspection of Alfred's prog-
ress, and arrangements for the eve-
ning's refreshments. Meanwhile her
busy mind was going over the problem
of managing her trio of rivals. If she
could only find Rosamund! Rosamund
she had, from the first, disliked; she
had always resented her appearance.
Now she fairly longed for her to open
the door. She thought and thought of
some possible way to reach her.
In a half hour, miraculously, as If
summoned by Flodie'B mental demand,
who but Rosamund did open the door!
—Rosamund Gale, more patronizing,
more assured and nonchalant than
"Hello," she said coolly; "Hall
here?" She sauntered up to the mir
ror and poked at her golden ringlets.
"Why, no. Mr. Bonlstelle has just
left," said Flodle, suspiciously cordial,
stopping her writing. "But I'm expect-
ing him any minute. Won't you
Rosamund craned her neck, trying
to catch a glimpse of her barrette.
"Those pictures of mine developed?"
"No. Miss Gale. Mr. Bonlstelle had
to work on some of his customers'.
"Well, I should think he might get
mine done first. 1 was in an awful
hurry to see 'em."
"Well, he has to attend to business |
Ijart of the time, you know, Miss Gale," I
"Oh, Indeed!" Rosamund gave her a ;
long, cruel stare. "I don't see why he !
bothers about his old business so '
much. He can afford to take it easy, j
"Well, of course I wouldn't say any-
thing about it to a customer, you
know, but so long as you and Hall are
such great friends, why,—well, the
fact is, I'm rather worried."
Flodle noted with glee that Rosa,
mund was losing color.
"Do you mean to say that Hall
Bonlstelle isn't doing as well as—well,
as well as he says?" Rosamund de-
Flodle smiled with secret satlsfao
tion. "Oh, I wouldn't exactly say that,
you know, but then—well, it costs a
lot to run this place. Here, look at
those bills! I don't think he'd mind,
so long as It's you!" She handed Rosa-
mund a neatly folded parcel. "I don'l
know how in the world we're evei
going to pay them!"
Rosamund turned them over curi-
ously, frowning. "H'm!" she said to
herhelf, through tightened lips.
a bunch of 'em, isn't there?
don't see how he can expect to—"
she gazed anxiously at Flodle.
flodie, seeing her advantage, art-
fully receded. "Oh, Mr. Bonlstelle Is
optimistic, you know. He always thinks
he's going to come out all right. Just
a wee bit reckless, perhaps, but then,
—well, I guess it'll be all right."
Leaving this to sink into Rosa-
mund's alarmed mind. Flodie walked
Into the stockroom and proceeded with
her printing and washing.
"Say, Miss Fisher!" Rosamund
called out, "how much salary do you

STYLES IN BLOUSES
WIDE CHOICE BOTH IN MATE-
RIALS AND FASHIONING.
Georgette Crepe Continues a Close
Second to Chiffon 'in Favor —
White Silk Net Much Used by
Ever since the mill people learned
to make chiffon cloth that was trans-
parent and serviceable, women have
gladly accepted it for blouses. Often
they adopt the French trick of
putting in a shoulderless lining of
flesh-colored or white lace, and this,
like mar.y other things founded on the
French knowledge of thrift and econ-
omy, keeps the garment In better
condition and makes it give longer
service. This lining is loose and Is
made like a deep girdle, and Instead
F THE United States and Denmark I ropean wars of the eighteenth cen
strike a bargain and the three | tury. The temporary occupation of th«
islands which comprise the Danish . island by the British during several
West Indies are transferred to the
former, the salo will mark the culmi-
nation of a bit of bartering which be-
gan nearly fifty years ago, when the
American government offered $7,500,-
000 for the 138 square miles of terri-
tory in the Antilles, a sum exceeding
by $300,000 the price paid to Russia In
the same year (1867) for the vast, rich
territory of Alaska, comprising an area
more than four thousand times as
large. The sale was not consummated
because the United States senate failed
to ratify the treaty, says a bulletin of
the National Geographic society. Four-
teen years ago negotiations were re-
newed and a price of $5,000,000 was
agreed upon, but this time the Danish
parliament refused to sanction the
sale, although the Islands had been
governed at a loss to the mother coun-
try for many years, in fact ever since
slavery was abolished in 1848, thereby
putting an end to the profitable opera-
tion of the sugar plantations.
These three islands of the Virgin
group—St. Croix, St. Thomas and St.
John, In the order of their size and
population—were discovered by Colum-
bus in 1493. Spanish, British, French,
Dutch and Danish flags have floated
over one or all of the islands at vari-
St. Croix, lying 65 miles southeast of
Porto Rico, has an area of 84 square
miles, and is the most prosperous of
the group, with its two towns of Chris-
tianstad and Frederikstad. It was held
at one time by the Knights of Malta,
having been given to that famous or-
der by Louis XIV of Francs
St. Thomas Has Fine Harbor.
St. Thomas, which lies only 40 miles
east of Porto Rico, was at one time
the chief distributing center of West
Indian trade, Its Importance being di-
rectly attributable to the fact that the
mother country, Denmark, maintained
Its neutrality during the numerous Eu-
periods of the Napoleonic wars added
further to the lmportanco of the chlel
port, Charlotte Amalie, where mer-
chant vessels rode at anchor in the
magnificent land-locked harbor while
waiting for convoys to protect them on
the voyage across the Atlantic.
This town of Charlotte Amalie, with
a population of less than ten thou-
sand, mainly negroes, is still ail im-
portant coaling station for steamers
in the West Indian trade. With a
depth of from 27 to 36 feet of water,
the roadstead can accommodate the
largest merchant ships which sail
these seas. The export and import
trade has become negligible since the
rapid decline of the sugar industry
which the Danish government has tried
in vain to revive by granting annual
St. John Is the Smallest.
St. John, least important of the
Islands, lying four miles to the east of !
St. Thomas, has an area of twen- j
ty-one square miles. It is scarce* |
ly. more than a ten-mile moun-
tain ridge with but one distinguishing
feature, Coral bay, the best harbor of
refuge in the Antilles. Cruxbay, a vil-
lage of 1,000 inhabitants on the north-
ern shore, is the center of population.
While Danish is the official language
of the islands, English is quite gen-
erally spoken. The monotony of ex- j
lstence is not infrequently broken by
earthquakes and hurricanes.
If Denmark decides to part with
these islands there will remain to her
only two colonial possessions—Green-
land und Iceland, which have an aggre-
gate area more than five times as largo
as the mother country, but with only
one-twenty-seventh the population. The
138 square miles of Denmark's West
Indian territory sustain nearly three
times as many people as the 46.74C
square miles of Greenland.
Dainty Blouae of White Organdie With
Collar and Cuffs Embroidered In
of attaching it in even the flimsiest
way to the outside fabric, it Is better
to give It shoulder straps of narrow,
flesh-colored satin ribbon.
As a rival to chiffon cloth, georgette
crepe has proven the most successful
fabric. Its predecessors were failures,
but it serves the need. It will remain
In fashion as far ahead as a prophet
can see, and yet it is having to share
the honors of the hour with several
other fabrics that have been brought
to the front.
Fine, colored muslins, solid and
striped, are In the forefront of fash-
Ion, and white and colored organdies,
which have been so extensively used
for neckwear, have been cordially
taken up by the makers of blouses,
The pifiln white organdie waists are
embroidered with one or more colors,
sometimes In the simple and ever-
pleasing design of scallops, again in
polka dots and triangles of brilliant
red and blue, green, black, and yellow.
Because polka-dot frocks are In fash-
Ion, we will be able to wear separate
blouses of polka-dot fabrics with the
pleased feeling that we are quite in
the middle of the picture. Taffeta and
satin are not looked upon with any
degree of warmth, but taffeta Is ap-
plied to chiffon and then embroidered
In gold and silver, to build up an or-
nate blouse. White silk net of such
a thinness of weave that one Is caused
to mistake It for tulle, has crept down-
ward In the scale of dressing from a
ball gown to a blouse. Its acceptance
by the smart dressmakers for this pur-
pose leads the way for the new ne^a
that have come over from France for
gowns, such as point d'esprlt and the
net with the square or dot woven in
it. The former Is especially attrac-
tive for a blouse to be worn with a
thin serge or silk suit.
Everyone knows by this time that
the smartest of French blouses drops
over the skirt instead of going under
It, after the manner of a miniature
Russian blouse. Cheruit sent this out
in white organdie, with a sash of col-
ored silk, and It has led the way for a
dozen other conceptions by our own
One of the most successful ways in
which It has been copied Is in colored
silk jersey, touched up with a simple
embroidered design in other brilliant
colors, and held in by a wide belt of
knitted silk like a man's cravat*
fastened with a large, oblong silver
Some of these blouses are in white
with a Pierrot design of black em-
broidery, but others, intended for
country wear, are of yellow, turquoise
blue, and apple green. They fasten
down the left side in a straight line
from shoulder to hem and have a
loose, mufflerlike collar and also fas-
tens at the side, under the left ear.
The majority of the sleeves are long
In the summer blouses, as well as
loose, and end In an ornamental cuff.
They are just as apt to have a high
neck as a low neck.
DECORATION FOR SOFT SILKS
Many Ideas Have Been Put Forward,
Some Highly Decorative and Some
In Quieter Forms.
Quaint medallions and bouquets and
prim little baskets of flowers are scat-
tered over the surface of soft silks.
Rings of several colors and of irregu-
lar shapes are dropped at widely
spaced intervals over other silks, and
on others highly decorative patterns
are used. Lovely georgette crepes
have baskets of flowers scattered over
the surface. A fine tafTeta broche
which combines crlspness and softness
in Just the right degree Is ornamented
with a little flower which never grew
on land or sea.
Stripes are very fashionable and are
cleverly used. Gay patterned linings
are used in coats and suits. Delicate
organdie embroideries are used in a
number of dainty ways; many are
lightly touched in color, especially old
blue and delicate rose. Embroidered
nets touched in color are used for
entire frocks as well as for trimmings.
edged frills and stitching, these new
tub petticoats are really enchanting.
GORGEOUS EVENING GOWN
whyl'l EUPHRATES A MIGHTY RIVER
Flows Through the Cradle of Civiliza-
tion Where Empires Have Risen
The Euphrates is the largest river in
western Asia and civilization is re-
puted to have come into being upon
Its banks. For six thousand years at
least empires have risen and fallen on
Its plain, conquering armies have
marched to battle and a hundred cities
have come up out of the earth and
fallen into obliterate ruin again.
Describing this great river as it runs
its seaward course today, the National
Geographic society, whose headquar-
ters are in Washington, says in a
statement given to the press:
"The Euphrates lays a strong claim
to the honor of being the most his-
toric river on earth ana certain it is
that in the region It drains, along with
its twin sister, the Tigris, man first

trable curtain which divides the known

Mrs. Sherburne Hopkins, who re
cently left society for the stage, smiled
the other evening when the conversa-
tion at a social affair turned to forget-
fulness. She said she was reminded
of an incident along that line. Some
days ago Brown was rambling along
the boulevard when he met Green.
Cordial handshake, a donation of
Brown, glancing at the other's hand,
"what have you got a string tied
around that finger for?" "My wife

"I see," laughingly returned Brown.
"Did you mall it*'" "No." was the
smiling response of Green, "she for-

he shortest, but it is generally re-
garded as the real source of the river.
It lies to the north of Erzerum, while
the longer hfanch passes It to the
south. The two branches are divided
by the wild mountain district of Der-
sim. After uniting they form the
Euphrates proper, which boldly breaks
Its way through the mountains by a
zigzag course that carries it now to
the right and now to the left. Now it
flows for 30 miles at right angles to Its
general course, then 60 miles parallel
to it and then 180 miles at right angles
again, as though It were headed for
the Mediterranean sea. Then It winds
to the south for 80 miles.
"Here It takes up its general trend
to the southeast and with innumer-
able sharp windings and bends, but
with only a few broad curves it heads
its way to the sea. The air line dis-
tance of the remotest spring of the
Euphrates from the sea Is only 800
miles and yet its waters must travel
1,800 miles before they reach the sea.
In the last 1,200 miles of Its course the
Euphrates is slow and sluggish, wan-
dering all over the land when It has
opportunity, making that which it
touches a marsh and that which it
cannot reach a desert.

Tub Petticoats With Colored Ruffles
Are to Be the Correct Things for
the Summer Garments.
81x yards is the correct width for a
summer petticoat this season and one
cannot help pitying the poor laundress
who hasliad a long and blessed rest
from starching and fluting crisp petti-
coat frills. Some petticoats to be
sure own to but three yards, but these j
are the most inexpensive and humble
models. As the price advances the
width advances, and the number of
frills also. Four rufilea of embroi-
dery, overlapping from knee to hem,
is a pretty trimming; especially when
the embroidery is the fine scallop-and-
dot kind always in good tasto. A new
petticoat which is already very popu-
lar has four ruffles of fine lawn edged
with narrow handkerchief hems In
some pretty color; and the ruffles are
stitched to the petticoat with colored
threads to match. With pink or blue

frock for evening wear Is modeled
especially for the budding de-
butante. The gown has a bodice of
heavy taffeta in rich tones of red,
purple and yellow, which create a
mingling of color pleasing to the
eye. The skirt is of pale yellow
chiffon and is supported by hoops.
Bands of silver over the shoulders
and from the waist give the gown
a dainty finish.
