SOCIETY ivi'rs. Sid Henry We are all. men arid women, poor worms Crnwllng up from the dampness and darkness of clay To hask in Ihe sunlight and warmth of the day.

Some sting if you touch them, and some evolve wings; Yet find dwells in each of Ihe poor. groping things. They came from the Source—to the Source they go back; The sinners are those who have missed the true track. We cannot jmh;e women or 'men as a child.

H wasn't .so bad, tl.i.s yelling dinner nl'ter a hard day, .since Dully could be counted on to wa.sh the dishes. Dolly cared for the apartment us if it were her own, doing many things to make it. comfortable, polishing silver, pulling fresh linen on Ihe bed, Wiisliiny thi! curtains frequently. Dan and Marian dined in silence, not a coinpanionablu silence, but one in which their two minds wandered down more or less pli.-a.sant paths of their own, the palhs seldom touching. After dinner, Dan rinsed and .slacked the di.'-hes while Marian prepared for her regular evening taslis. The loiifh of white piqtiu at her throat must be washed and ironed, stoclc- inf.'.-; and gloves must be laundered. Marian never left, one detail of her wardrobe to chance. The garments lu be worn the following day were KOIH- over each night, brushed, HK-ndi-d, made ready. As she worked, Dan roamed ,'iboul tin; living room. He glanced i't. tin- paper, throwing it down to Mare from the window. It crossed Marian's mind that she and Dan never went out together. And no one came !o .see them. With the exception of a few business acquaintances, they had no friends. Why? She frowned, squeezing her JiOi-o in a I'oiimy suds. Dan had never complained when .she objected to going out. lie never left In.-r alone. Marian had :i moment of self-reproach. Dan w:i." so socially inclined, he loved to dance, he loved people. Odd, the way she and Dan hud tlr.fted apart. There had been such ;i wealth <,f love at first, such Joy in their clo-e companionship. Marian ; ; ave herself a jerk, both literally and (ii'urMivcly.

Dan dropped to :>. chnir by the table and Khu(Vled ;i Pack of cards. He Jaid out his favorite game. Marian wondered how many gumes of solilaire Uan had played in the past 10 years. Her needle was too large for the holes in the snaps, she pricked hei finger, (he ship-slap of Dan's cards hi';it on her nerves. "For goodness sake, Dan," she said crossly, "haven't you unylhirig to read? Solitaire—.solilaire—all the time." "You said Hi" he returned, an unusual gruffness in his tone. "If gels on my nerves. I've "toad :i hard clay." She had an impulse to tell him of her hard day, of Sally Blake who was edging in on her domain, of her fear that G. F. was no longer satisfied. She comr pi-Kssed her lips. She couldn't tell Dan, Ho would be glad of her downfall. Very likely he hud been patiently waiting for that very tiling. Tnslanlly, her thoughts swung back. Dan wouldn't be glad. There wasn't a bit of meanness in Dun's makeup. That's why he had been a failure, too'easygoing, tod thoughtful of the other fellow. Like the time he could have been sales manager if he hadn't stepped back in favor of Sims Crane who had a wife and two youngsters. Marian, had never.for- givcn him for thai. Dan was the best man, all he lacked wns a little force of character. He'd been chicken-hearted because Sims Crane had two youngsters— Youngsters—Dan never mentioned his little dream, daughter any more. Strange that he should iave wanted a girl, But Dan was queer like that, tender, no force. How her mind ran on tonight. Dan had obediently put the cards away. He was flipping through a magazine, sitting sidewise on an uncomfortable chair. "Dan, what ails you tonight?" she broke out in exasperation. "Go over and talk to Dolly. Let me have a little peace." "Okay." He got up and strolled across the hall, leaving both doors open. Marian heard him say, "I've been kicked out. Cnn you put up He with me for a few minutes'?" said it good-naturedly. "Of course. Sit clown. There's the evening paper." There was no raspy edge to Dolly's voice. She was a comfortable little person. With a sigh of relief, Marian listened to their contented murmur. This happened almost every night, Dolly taking Dan off' her hands. * * * J) AN Kat in the shabby big chair which had been his brother's favorite. Scanning the paper, he looked pleasantly ""at ease. The tightness had disappeared from his face, the tension from his movements. Opposite, curled in a corner of the davenport, Dolly knitted soft blue yarn, on amber needles. It was a restful picture, placid, .satisfying, "Are you having a good time?" Marian called. "Well, nothing exciting." Dolly had a cute little voice, a laugh seemed to run behind it. "Come in, Marian." "No, thanks—I'll slay at home." Al) was quiet in the apartment across the way, only the rustle of Dan's paper, the click of Dolly's needles. Then Dan, on a laugh, "Here's an interesting thing, Dolly." "What? Read it to me." His voice rose and fell. When he had finished the article, they discussed it, laughing and wondering. More silence. Marian must have dozed off because the next thing she knew a game of cribbage was in progress across the hal!. Almost every evening Dan and Dolly played three games out of five for a dime. They fought every inch of the way, gaily quarreling, making much of each small victory. * * * ° ; 5£3 ARIAN went to bed. Hjr nerves were ragged. Restlessly, she tossed and turned. She wished that Dan would finish his game and come home. It was comforting to have him near. In the darkened room, all the doiibtn and fears of. the day magnifier! themselves, stood out like italicized blurbs against, the backdrop ot tomorrow arid, all the tomorrows. Ever since going into the bu-ir.e-.s world she had seen the trnsc-f" of the older girls, those pttsfTYo as they were replaced by you«i Somehow she had never taken the lesson to herself. She was the exception that proved the rule. G. R was her friend as well as employer, she was safe. Thirty had seemed so far away 10 years, four, one— Her 30th birthday, that line over which the business girl stepped from the glamorous age to the veteran class, had passed uneventfully. And now she was 32 — She schemed and planned. She'd make herself utterly necessary to Grant Fellows. For comfort, she recalled several white-haired, aging secretaries who had become fixtures. If it weren't for Sally- Marian got up quickly. Without going to the hall door, she called, "Come home, Danny—the hour grows late." That was for Dolly's benefit. She wanted to shriek, 'Stop playing that silly game— [top being happy—stop—oh, stop everything." (To Be Continued) Inee up much in the oxford mariner.

Some fancy oxfords for fall lace up in front with a half- inch "ribbon" of self-leather, and have more of the "ribbon" laced in and out of the top edge.
