CHAPTER VIII T^EN days passed, days in which •*- Marian was forced to put a continuous curb on her nervous irritability. Once she had felt satisfaction in her work, once pride of achievement had lent color to the long hours. Now the days dragged, accented by disturbing occurrences, harassed by ever-increasing doubts and worries. Dan was morose, quick- tempered, not at all himself. Marian had accustomed herself t using him as a blotter to nbsorb her moods. Of late her irritability had bounded back to seethe and add to her unrest. The days were filled with trying incidents. Marian felt a cockiness about Sally Blake which she knew Sihoulcl be curtailed. She called the girl to her desk, pointing out several errors in a typewritten letter. "Mr. Fellows expects perfection, Sally," she said crisply. "I've worked for him a long lime and I know that he won't put up with mistakes." "I'm sorry, Mrs. Harkness," the girl said contritely. "I'll do the loiter again." It was difficult lo discipline one so humbly willing. "And, Sally," Marian went on, "your place is in the outer office. You will only endanger your chances for advancement by finding too many errands in this office." Sally smiled, a wise little smile. "Mr. Fellows sends for me when I don't come," she said. "He's teaching me to be a secretary." "Whose secretary, if I may ask?" "His," Sally answered calmly. Marian nervously tapped her desk. "I'm sure you are mistaken," she observed allowing your better of your good sense." The girl said sweetly, "I only hope that some day I may be as wonderful a secretary as you arc, Mrs. Harkness. I watch you all Uie time, trying to learn." Marian looked her straight in the eye. If Sally could be frank so could she. "What makes you think that my position will be open?" she asked. Sally's smile was disarming. "I don't think so, really. But you have a husband, a very nice, handsome husband—I've seen him at the building entrance—some day you may want to keep house for him—" "I do keep house for him," Marian answered harshly. "Yes, well anyway—it does me no harm to prepare myself. Naturally, I don'l wanl lo be a slenog- rapher all rny life." Marian was desperalc. "Listen, Sally," she said confidentially, "you are clever and ambitious, of course you wanl to go up the ladder. Let me see if I can't gel you a secretarial position in some other office. I know a great many business men, I could give you a letter—" Sally shook her bright head, "I like it here, Mrs. Harkness. Thank you just the same." She hurried back to her typewriter and Marian continued to nervously desk. Mr. Fellows strode the "Did you answer the Allen let- tor?" he asked abruptly. "Did you give the letter to me c.- to Sally?" Marian asked, catch)P" at a hope. If Sally's inefficiency could be proved— "How can I tell?" peevishly. "I sc "'s" dictate the letters and expect them SL ' lfis ». ' ' ••• cruel." coldly. "You are wishes to get the to be written and mailed. It certainly isn't my duly lo check up on the mail each day." "Certainly not." Marian rushed on indiscreetly. "When several persons try to handle the same job, Mr. Fellows, there's bound to be confusion." "Never mind that. Find the Allen letter and get i). off." About to call Sally for a checkup of her shorthand book, Marian leafed through her own. There it was. B. T. Allen, National Bank Building, Grinnell, Iowa. It had not been checked off. How had she missed it? Mr. Fellows eyeing her. "Found it, did ynu'.'" "Yes—I'm sorry—I'll send it special—" "Humph," he growled. •i ; ••'*• * JNCIDENTS like that, discouraging, annoying, kept happening. One day Mr. Fellows remarked tersely, "If you must snap someone's head off, Marian, please don't pick on mine." Another day he 'Take the afternoon off. witch, cvery- until it became a pitched battle, reinforcements being commandeered by both sides from the past, present, and future. Starling with Dan's casual inquiry as lo Die whereabouts of the morning paper, it worked up by rapid degrees to his shout, "You know I enjoy the morning paper, I only have a chance to scan the headlines at breakfast. Is that why you discontinued it?" And Marian's angry retort. "I have no time to read it. If you're so crax.y for the paper, why don't you pay the boy once in a while?" "I have always paid the boy." "How about these receipts in rny desk?" jerking a drawer open. "1 pay everything. If it weren't for me—" "Cut it. Perhaps I was not here once or twice. I shall certainly reimburse you." He flung a dollar uill on the table. "Marian, you're to the bone, deliberately worse than small and was roared, You're What's body?" And Carma as flighty the matter continued to be u trial, the luncheon meetings with her something to be dreaded. She was bitter about Pete's marriage, disinclined, after the first agonized regret, to blame herself. She spoke of herself as a scorned, deserted woman and vaguely threatened all manner of reprisal. Her face had become hard and embittered. While pitying her, Marian began to avoid her. One night Dan and Marian quarreled hotly. The cause was slight, something about the morning paper being discontinued. The disagreement grew in proportions She laughed, it was a nasty imitation of a laugh. "You can talk' of being cruel, you, who can't provide a home for your wife, who never have been able to provide. I can grow old and tired, working my fingers to the bone so that you may live in a nice home, so that you can have your morning paper" —this last with biling scorn. "Let me sec your fingers—let me see the bones." He caught her hand, a soft, beautiful hand with manicured nails and cool skin. "Bah," he said, dropping it. "I'd rather it was red and rough with keeping house." Clenching his fist he shook it. "It was your idea to work your fingers to the bone not mine. If I'd had the backbone of a canary—" "Yes, but you hadn't —you haven't now!" A Little Lesson on the Handshake "Pump-Handle" Handshakes Worse I'A-en Than "Fishy" Handshake even pumj. Puinp-lfandle handshaki-s ; worse man "fishy" handshake handles are often painful. These may be pumps or oxfords with The polite hund-shaker will grasp a hand firmly, but not too tightly.

That is especially true if she is being hostess in her onw home. Most men, however, are so used to shaking hands they are likely to take it for granted they should •snake hands with women. It's rude of a woman to refuse to shake hands when u nuui offers to do so. Four persons shouldn't sii.-ike hands all at once-in wheel-fashion.

When two men and two women meet H usually works out to everybodys had forgotten the ncws- ^ Paper, it had been but the vehicle for a swift ride to ruin The quarrel left Marian exhausted and mentally ill. Again and again she assured herself that Dan was contemptible, that she hated him. Contradictorily, she longed for the feel of his arms about her. It had been a long time since they had cared enough to quarrel. While despising Dan, it roused her old love for him. But, for the first time in their married life, there was no reconciliation. The antagonism gradually wore itself away. And then, to add to the general upheaval, Dolly went to the country for the week-end. Beds had to be made, dishes washed. The apartment was stuffy and uncomfortable. Sunday was a day of dark moods, sketchy meals, and simmering discontent. (To Be Continued) State University.

(• IN NEW YORK By CICOIKiK KOSS YORK — Around the Town; The gullible are biting for a pamphlet that is being peddled on the streets, purported to have been written by Governor Dickinson.

Critic George Jean Nathan was summing up his feeling about, a cowshed drama he had seen and confessed that he had dozed off too long to take much notice. "But what exactly were your reactions to the play?" a harried listener asked him. "Well," said the caustic Mr. N., "I can't say much for Uie show, but the leading mail has a charming bedside manner!" I James Barton kissed and made up with the folk backstage of "Tobacco I, Koad" which is why he changed his i mind and it, slaying on—for Uie sixth year—in the Georgia cracker saga.
