SIXTEEN THE BRIDGEPORT TELEGRAM, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1920. TELEG MAGAZINE PAGE His Friend and His Wife By COSMO H A M I L T O N "it didn't mutter," said I'J "He's n bolt or man -Tor wluil he's (gono through, mid I think that I've improved a bit since then, and If ho hasn't forgotten nil about mo In tho meantime we shall ccmo together with an absolute crash. That's, why I call it a romnnco. That's why I'm going round, to the Club now In 11 staj." ot norvoim excitement w h k h positively makes me Jumpy. That's why 1 tool that I'm standing at tho crossroads of my life. Wish mo luck, l«ar old thing. It's tho least you can do, considering that It wns through you that we've not been engaged all this time." This was said with an outward appearance of self-control to ho expected of ono who had driven an ambulance through, tho orowdod traffic 'of Now York by day and night, who hud shivered at tho docks in tho early hours of winter mornings and teen called out of bed In the first moments of beauty sleep to play her part behind the lines In the greatest drama oC all time. But the emotion which lay behind those ·words burned in tho girl's eyes and showed itself in tho little tremble of tho fingers -which held hot- mannish cigarette holder. Nina Hopper, herself satoly married and happy, made two or thrco quick stops forward arid put. her arms round her school friend who, only tho other (lay, as It scorned, had been playing: at life In tho long airy dormitory In which so many of their mutual confidences had been whleporori a f t e r lights out. They wore womoii now. both of tj, cm ,--one by tho responsibilities of marrioige, tho other by the experiences of war work. it was a curious moment for them both, n. Bilent etoquent moment full of affection and hopefulness and deep sympathy,--a «lmrmlug mome-nt in ·which two utterly modern girls bc- Jiavod as their grandmothers would have clone u n d e r slmlMar clrcum- · tan ces. CHAPTEK V1TT. Tho big rar which carried Mrs. 'Mahan to tho village disappeared its they left the house. They, caught a 'glimpse of n btun-hntided cap mounted on axmoas of white hair, and a fine, firm profile whle.h ended «n a double chin, about which there had "boon no time to worry. Tho oddly shaped beds ot Howors around the Castle wore tho pristine brightness of the Bprlng, and birds busy with their domestic duties fl«w from tree to tiee. All about tho garden there wero tho rnaikH of Cteorge Mahan'n lampant Imagination. Terrace* of great utonos ground themselves Into eight and »lxes, oruwnod copiously with hiwe urns and chubby Cupids. * Flights of storio steps, p»ttorned with moss, |ed Into circle'* dominated by sundials or the ilubcns-llko figure of un Italian matron llndlsoreetly robed. · Arches and pergolas and tiny -chapels were evorvwhore and every avoilaWo space had Its b u l b o u s ladv or 'grinning witvr made older than they really w e i o by sun and ruin. It wan t h t o u f . h this probably, to him, royal garden that the whlm- 1 elcal Irishman swaggered after a good dinner, wearing an Imaginary ·crown tilted ovor ono eye, mutter- ,1ns fiery denunciation of tho bloody from whom lie 'got no of his Ideas. A lively brook away below, bubbling like a 'jetlng c»f tho Drama Leuguo. Ov- 'it all hung on exquisite blue can- y unspotted by a cloud. . Mr. Martin had dashed oft to bin game In tho ubiquitous l'"ord which ·w»» used for station work, and Elsa,'.s own car, .puilnted e. fe'rlrn battleship giray, was resting In tho g«r- 'age. This it needed, and so tho girls set off. to walk to tho Country Club,-- a matter of n mile nnd n lhajf along .charming ronds, troc- llned and dotted on o'lthor »lde with ·well-groomed hou«e». Not much was said by either of them as they ·walked, lOlsa delighting to bo once more 'in feminine clothes two summers behind the fashion platen. The inevitable n u m b e r of cars massed them, taking people to tha club. In one they saw Margaret lilereditili sitting with a girl whose lace wae new to them. "How, well »Rd h'ippy Margaivt looks again," said Klsa. "And well she may. I told you how she got out of a very biid wrape. Bob and she are Ineopar- attle. Awful nice people, both of them." "Who's eli" wlthV "I don't know. It's a girl I've seen her with before once or twice. Very ·pretty and raWiw intellectual look- Ing. Doe^ filings probably. A stranger, I think." "Perhaps we «hkill meet her," salfl Elea little t h i n k i n g that this girl In whom «bo wtiM only ellglitly I n t e r - ested was to vir;y into her l i f e the aftermath of tho episode which had already taken the elements of tragedy into the houses of tho Merediths and the Osborns.

Shall we give her a miss In balk or pro over?" "C/et's go over," said Klsa. "I llk.ii Malgiwet. and I'm mtliar curious ·about that girl." And su they went over to a l i t t l e tablo out in the open which haA lieon placed u n d e r the shadow of a IIUKO umbrella. Some people will never knuw how much they loae by wasting 1 the sun.

In tho first exercise you shoulrt stand erect, with your feat slightly apart. Hold a flat-Iron In encli of your hands. Your arms should hang straight down by your Bides, 1 with the palms of your hands to tho front. Jtfow raise tho flatslron.s to the front by b e n d i n g your etlhows. Continue to raise the Irons very, very slowly, u n t i l you have pushed them up to y o u r a r m s length iibove your head. Then lower the Irons Just us «lowly "until they ,"i-p once niors nt tho an in a position us wlifji you started. Hcjioat this exercise ten times mid If your arm muscles bucomo tlNiil, stop for a m i n u t e be- twoenHlw movornentH. In f h o second exerclso, you start from the same position ns t h a t afl- Hiimed In the first Next, step forward with your right foot. H w l n R tho flat-Iron In your right h a n d up to a position nt rtght angles with your body as you hold vour elbow straight. C o n t i n u e swinging the Iron u n t i l it Is nearly over y o u r head. Bring It buck trradunllv to the original position. Swing your arm ton times, Bring back your right foot. Advanca your left foot, n|iil taking thn flat-iron In your left hnml go through the movements ton times with, your left arm. In tho third exorcise you must first place both UIP Irons on tho floor. Stooping over, grasp, them with your right hand. Raise yotir body erect, and with on6 swing of your arm raise the Irons above your hpnd ns vou »wtnr thpm ti the back of your arm, and advance your rlgh Wot. Do this ten times, then ropen as many times with your loft hand In tho fourth exercise you should commence as In exercise ono, excep that you must have the backs of you hands forward. liaise the irons t your shoulders by bonding your el bows.
