For the price of !a brush, or a few nails, or any other implement, one can receive a scholarly dissartation on anything from otithoiises to portrait painting and roast pig. Mr. Schmitt, in the general hardware store, was no exception. He welcomed me as a compatriot, and offered invaluable aid. "Ach no, not vit dose clumsy brushes." he said, as in-slinctively I chose the lea-it likely ones, "but dese iss vot you need. Half the price und twice as good." He produced two good-looking brushes, with the air of s fellow conspirator turning over secret documents. "Paint?" he considered my next problem lor a moment. "You vant already colored or mix your owri? "Just • minute," I said, and looked up the article in point in my magazine: "Anyone Can Paint a Room the Easy Way." "Til mix my own," I announced, "It says here thnt you save rnonej if you buy a lot of white paint and just add pigment." "Shure, stiure," Mr. Sehmit agreed, looking quite curiously a my literary consultant, "Und from dat you will do it?" "Of course," I said, showing him the article. "And I can paper too from on page 96 of this magazine." "Veil," said Mr. Schmitt judiciously scratching his shaggy gray head, "maybe. In my day, for someding like this ve used common sense, a couple of direction" and experience showed vot else dcre vas, Und now, it's like a job vid pages und pages lo read, and no common sense nnd lo experience/' I had intended to merely deposit rny purchases in the apartment, with the idea of starting work that night when John was due to meet me there. Then I got one of my unfortunate inspirations: Why not laint the kitchen right now and surprise John wilh the finished product when he arrived? Dieain- ly, 1 envisioned his startled: "But darling, when did you do it?" "This afternoon," 1 would say casually, flipping the brush back n the can and smoothing the folds o£ my skirt. T TOLD myself: Anyone can sme.-ir a brush around and get a room finished. Dressed as 1 was, and humming cheerfully as if 1 were about to water a plnnt, I began to undo the can of white paint. 'Well, well, and what are you doing now?" a voice near me asked. It was Freda, the superintendent's wife. "I'm going to paint the kitchen,' I told her. "In that dress?" she gasped pointing to my trousseau silk print- "For heaven's sake, yoi wait and I'll bring you a coverall." "Oh," I said very brightly, never having thought ot that befo But that wasn't exactly in my daydream at how I would appear before John when he came. She turned and walked away, to reappear in a few minules wilh a tremendous looking kind of smock We rolled up the sleeves, giggled over how I looked, and Ihen afle making my proper thanks am apologies, I casually sl.irled to paint as if I were simply goin£, into the bathroom to brush my teeth. What the magazines didn't lei me was that paint drips—all ove the painter. When you wield a brush, small rivulets of paint rol down and ruin the smooth surtac 'f the wall.

Instead, I was a horrible ness. J U sl looking at his neat, clean clolhes made me wanl lo vecp, and when be innocently said: "llellu, sweetheart, why vou'vc almost got one wall dune!" I started to cry aloud into can of paint John didn't dare come close lo nc. since I was all covered with paint by then, and we both had too much rcsnect fur his besl blue suit. But lie consoled me trorn the doorway. ^ "Jusl you wail,- ho said, "and I'll Ket lo work too. 'Ilien we'll finish fast. Poor darling, you're all lircd out. Did vou cat?" I shook my head." "I can't anyway," I wailed. "I'm covered wilh paint." Just then Freda came b.ick again. thought I saw you come in. doe- tor," she said, and handed htm a coverall wilh a big grin. "And here's a sandwich for you," she said, turning to me and placing it on Hie rtrainlinnni. "I put some turpentine in the bathroom. You can wash Hie paint of! there." Attcr she left, 1 cleaned lip enough to settle down wilh her ham on rye, and I could almost feel my 'disposition improving Yiilc by bite. "Mind over matter," I thought ns I nfe. "Bosh!" John, meanwhile, carefully donned his coverall as if ft wore an operating room gown, and taekled the next wal 1 as if it were nn anesthetized patient. The role of peaceful watcher appealed lo me far more than that of an active worker, but as soon as I finished eating, I pilched in too.
