The Evolution of the Toothbrush.
NOT many years ago a toothbrush
was just a toothbrush, with a
white bone handle Into which were
set four or five rows of white bristles.
It was used once a day then placed
in a glass of water until used again.
In fact the toothbrushes of the entire
family .were often placed in the same
glass of water. Makes you smile now,
doesn't It? But in years gone by It
made a great many cry with tooth
ache. By means of the sociable,
though unsanitary family toothbrush-
holder tooth ailments were transferred
from one member of a family to all
People then used to brush across
the front teeth to keep them white.
Never mind the back teeth, they didn't
count. But in time they learned that
back teeth did count, that brushing
across the teeth wasn't the best way,
that a toothbrush was about the most
personal of one's belongings and
should not be let stray, to come back
with all the tooth ills of the family
secreted among its bristles.
The manufacturers of brushes be
gan then to experiment. The brush
was invented with a handle curved
most comfortably for use on the back
teeth. Next came the one that didn't
shed bristles, then sizes were graded
from the brush for baby to grandpa,
who today often has sound and
healthy teeth. . .
Now comes what we have needed
but didn't realize the need of it. It Is
a toothbrush cleaner. . These can be
bought at the drug store at prices
from a couple of cents up. They clean
the brush after use. and thus leave
it free from particles of food that
might possibly be brushed back into
the teeth again.
If you cannot obtain this brush,
there Is a substitute, though probably
not so good. Buy the chenille cov
ered wire sold at tobacco stores for
pipe cleaners, and clean your tooth
brush with it. But dally clean your
toothbrush you must, if would keep
step with fashions in hygiene

Rceardlns the Barrier of Sex.
ri SECOND time, Marian encoun
t tered. Meadows, the rich young
man, by accident on one of her morn
ing strolls on Riverside Drive. On the
third morning, she met him at their
favorite bench by appointment.
"Let's take a ride on a motor bus,"
he proposed on the latter morning, and
together they hailed and clamored to
the top deck on one of the passing
vehicles. The noon-day sun flashed
and shimmered on the surface of the
Hudson. Marian's companion talked of
the Riviera, of interesting adventures
in odd Italian nooks, of a journey
through Provence. As the bus ap
proached a certain famous and ex
clusive inn on upper Riverside, Mead
ows proposed luncheon. Like a girl in
a pleasant dream, Marian did as she
was bidden, and presently they were
seated at an open window at a quaint
little table, amid superb surroundings.
The host ordered a wine so light and
exquisite that it passed Marian's lipu

"But you shouldn't have done this," she
added hesitantly. "You shouldn't have
gone to all this trouble."
"I was hoping you wouldn't say that,"
was the grave reply. "I understand, of
course, that no woman ever trusts a
man. From unpleasant experiences she
knows better. Yet, there are exception
to the general rule that the barrier ol

Marian pricked up her ears. She had
never beard a man talk like this be
fore. She had not given the blase
young fellow credit for such a philo
sophical outlook upon life as this. It
was another facet of his interesting
character. She liked and respected him
for what he had said.
"EnouEh." he laughed. "Ill be
getting in over my depth if I'm not
careful. As I was saying." he con
tinued lightly, and sped merrily Into
a blithe narration of a European ad
venture he had left unfinished on the
Later, with abruptness which was
characteristic of his changing moods,
he said: "I'm going to ask you a
question which I hope you won't con
sider impertinent, I want a frank
answer. How about it?"
Marian gazed into the other s eyes
and found them kind and grave. But
she shrank from his words. What was
coming? Instinctively she sprang to
"What is it?" she demanded in tones
of challenge, ill-concealed.
"Don't be so tragic," he smiled. "I
want to Inquire about ytur finances. I
don't want to borrow, I want to lend.
If you're at all in need of funds, I want
you to let me make you a little loan.
It's a sordid subject. I know, and I
hate to mention it. You're not angry?"
"No, but you mustn't propose any
thing like that. I couldn't let you, no
matter how much I were in need of
money," Marian made haste to reply.
"Why not? I've got It to spare, and
I didn't earn it either. The fact that
mere chance puts money Into my pocket
is no reason why It should stay there,
You're quite as much entitled to it as
I am. And I'd appreciate it mightily If
you'd let me lend you some in the
event you ever need it. It's a pure
business transaction, and when your
ship comes in, you may repay it."
