I've always thought I'd rather mourn for a man that was brave than cook for a man that's a coward." Mrs. Percy, repudiating this conso- lation, tossed her head In some cf- fense. "I didn't mean it would bare been easy in any event. The thing, after all, that makes me miserable is my broken life. When you've had ten years of married happiness, you don't get reconciled to giving It up." Mrs. Penfleld gazed at her dream- Ily. "No, not reconciled! Being re- signed to esrythlng Is a pretty good sign of moral prostration. But there's one thing,you got to remember: if you had ten years of happy married life, you had exactly ten years more than a lot of women have, and you'd onghter be thankful for it, 'long with your mourning." Mrs. Percy's lips came together with a snap. An uncomfortable si- lence spread over the room, pressing conversation out of existence. Mrs. Ptmfleid, fearing that she had been too outspoken, sprang up briskly, with the thought of bre:Ylng :he tension. "You mustn't Imagine I'm unsympa- thetic, 'cause underneath I bee.n stody- Ing on how we could help you.

Fairly beside herself, Ifl stormed about the room, forgetful of feet that dragged, of legs that refused to be supple. She shivered and screamed and fought the air with nervous lashing of both arms. Her dark eyes shot mad glances in every direction, searching for more eaten- pillars. "I know what 'tis." she howled. "It's a pest. We're going to be over- run. They'll come In the doors and windows. And I hate the crawling things. Oh. what shall we do'/ What shall we--" Suddenly she oppe. Her arms dropped. She had become conscious of the interested, significant gaze of her guests---a gaze that reminded her of many things. "Ugh !" she cried. "Ain't this aw- ful? I'll suffer for it later." Mrs. Sanders clasped her hands fer- vently. "Oh, I'm so glad it happened. There ain't no more caterplllar here; I've looked. And they---they've brought you out of It." Mrs. Percy gasped. "It was---it was only a superhuman--" "No. Mrs. Percy," broke In Mr Penfleld brightly. "I been watching how you dhl iL and It was Just as natural as could be.

Her shaking fnger pointed at Mrs. Penfield herself, nd two curious things at once became evident.

"Well, did you ever!" interjected Mrs. Penfleld- But at this point Mrs+ Percy de+ tided that caterpillars were after her; and her nerves gave way.

MAKE TREE THEIR THIRD WIFE Hindus Have Evolved Really Unique formed at dead of nlght under an old ' Way of Evading a Religloua mango tree. It Is not easy to under- Techn iral ity. Probably the most curious form of marriage In existence prevails in India, where men and women are married to trees. A Hindu in the Punjab cannot be legallynarried a third time, and when, therefore, he wants a third wife, he Is married to a certain tree, so that when he does actually take another wife she cunts as his fourth. In another district of India there are communities where a tree marriage Is solenmlzed In the case of a man who has lost two wives and is desirous Of taking a third, or a man who is too poor to marry in the usual way. In the latter ease, the man Is after- ward s married to a widow. As, how- ever. the of a by orthodox with calafllW, the Is per- stand the reason for such n extraor- dinary custom as tree marriages, but one authority points out that it seems to be intended to avert the curse of widowhood, the "husband" being el- ways aHve.

A London dispatch announces that Dr. Bernard Holtander In a public ad- dress has advanged the claim that brain power and the capacity for mental work may be lncrea:d and stimulated by the application ,f elec- tricity (galvanic treatments) to cer- it:in regions of the head. Tests have been made, he stated, on a number of backward or indolent students, who through tills method had been sueces ful in In they had failed. e TELLING YOUR BOSS rtHE man who hlres you thinks he - knows how to run hls business. He may be wrong, but "that is what he thlnles. Also he believes he knows what he wants you to do. Again he may be In error, but such, notwithstanding, Is his belief. It may be easy for you to tell the boss where he Is mistaken in many them out Is Just at that time the most Important thing in the world. If you will do that repeatedly the boas will have to promote you, whether he wants to or not, because if he doesn't somebody else will find out about you and hire you. With hundreds of eople hunting for exceptionally competent men nobody can hide you.

And they naturally will think more of men who agree with+ them than of men who differ. We sometimes hear-young men in fits of anger "telling the boss where he gets off," although not as often as w hear them say that this is what they do. But we never saw one who gained any advantage by it. If you are right ahout a tking, and know you are right, It is very well to I prove it--provided It wlil do the buslo i hess any good.
