She seemed to him, now, like
a child incapable of appreciating
tbe grarlty of their problems.
I don't know how to go about

mitted, his face set and his eyes
staring straight ahead. .
"But, darling, there Is no need

about It either. You're to take

He could not escape the calm

was vaguely very happy, he clung
perversely to his troubled
"What do you advise me to
"I advise you," she said, kiss
ing him again, "to go along home
, and behave yourself. Just let
things work out we're in no
rush, yon know, all eternity is
ahead of us."
- Once more before leaving they
surrendered themselves to crush
ing embraces: again and again ha
. kissed her until their . blissful
world of delicious joy was recre
ated and they were floating on
golden clouds. .
At her gate they parted with
a reluctance that filled the night
with aching sweetness.
"You're not going to worry, aro
you?" she remonstrated again.
"But I feel like I ought to start
to do something."
She sealed his lips with another
"Yon leave it to me. I have an
Idea. I'm not going to say any
thing Tight now but wait a little
while and we'll see what'U hap

ings amazed him. All in a space
of a few hours be would sink to
depths of despair and then, for no
'reason, would soon be in the
clouds. : c

Morning again found him In the
timber with his axe ringing. An
other day passed and he was again
at work among the shadowy green
pines, when a voice called to him.
Tom Freeman came up and they

Tom Freeman sat down on a
,log and Eddie joined him.
"I saw Marian and she told me
about you two," Freeman said,
his voice slightly unhappy. "I
suppose I ought to congratulate
you and I do. She's a wonder
ful girl, but she never could see
me. I was always nothing but
"Anybody can be in love," Ed
die said, with sudden wisdom,
"but it's the hardest thing on
earth to be a true friend."
"I found that out," Freeman
agreed. "Marian put all the
cards on the table and asked me

here, Regan. It s Marian's Idea
but I'm soing through it for her
sake and for yours, too, I reck

INTENSIVE CARE OF
Avoiding Dangers of Undernourishment Is Mother's
Bis: Job, Says Authority, Reminding That Babes
Aren't Like Topsy, Who "Just Growedf
By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D. '-
United States 8enator from New York.
Former Commitrtoner of Health, Veto York City.
I HAVE said many times that one of the biggest and most im
. portaat jobs in the world is that of being a mother. Ber field ef
' ead vor is probably greater than that of any ether Individual.
And it b certainly far-reaching in effect. I cannot repeat these facts

iviuiuui uivBt ueeuea tor tne
proa juice should be given rery
moraine. Boiled water that bas been
cooled la accessary for drinking pur
pose. This can be put in a nursing
bottle and given between meals. -
As the baby progresses beyond the
period when the feeding is limited to
milk th greatest care must be ener
v cised in the choice of foods to bo
Slrea th youngster. Eg-g. mashed
and strained vegetables, meat, soups,
whit meat of chicken, lamb chops
' and simple desserts follow In rapid
; succession. At least one quart of
- pure milk a day must be included In
. the diet.
Why do I stress all these things?
Because I don't want your baby to
be thin, pale, nervous, flat-chested,
"with rings under the- eree. and
stringy, lifeless looking hair. Un

Freeman grinned, but his voice
was awkward. "Marian thought

How about It?"
The plan was so simple, that for
a moment It seemed silly to Ed
die. "I don't think she'd fall for
that stuff," be mused.
"I disagree with you," Freeman
said. "I'll make an appeal to her
human nature; that's the easiest
and best way out and there's a

It occurred to Eddie that Tom
Freeman was one of the finest
men he had ever known. Not every
guy would go to battle for his ri
val. "The trouble Is." he objected,
"that you are a stranger to her.
She's not used to men like you.
Freeman, and she might not get
you like I do."
They walked back to the house,
discussing the problem.
Unexpectedly, a new complica
tion presented Itself; the arrival
of Mike Arno. He was waiting for
them, his" smart New York lug
gage piled up on the veranda. Tall,
buoyant, with expansive manner,!
he sprang down tbe step and
pumped Eddie's hand.
"Did you get my letter that I
was coming?" he demanded, beam
ing. "Cripes, It's nice out here,
kid. It's nice in the country, ain't
"Yes, it's nice," Eddie admitted,
with a tired smile. "I'm glad you
are here, Mike but things don't
look so good for me right now.
Bernice is in town and she's play
ing old Nick with me. Meet Mr.
Freeman, Mr. Arno."
"You mean she came down
here?" he asked. "Is she causing
any trouble, Kid?"
Eddie explained to Tom Free
man: "Mr. Arno's a friend of

Is getting me in wrong with the
whole county. My friend, Mr.
Freeman, here thought something
of trying to persuade her to go
back to New York. She won't lis
ten to me."
"Did you come right out and
give her the air?" Arno demanded.
"Where- is she now?"
Arno looked at Tom Freeman's
car. "That yours?"
Arno girded an affectionate
arm around Eddie's shoulder.
"Listen, Kid," he said, emo
tionally. "Bernice is a good kid
at heart. I don't think Mr. Free
man could handle her alone, but
if I joined up with him It ought
to be a cinch. He could put up the
local angle of the situation to
her and I could tell her in her
own language that she was mak
ing a lot of trouble. You know,
Eddie, I got a gift that way."
Few children "just grow" as did Topsy. Most
of them peed to receive intensive care. This is
, necessary to insure their good health ist adult
life, as well as during childhood.
It is a commonly stated fact that if you would
resist infection and disease you must be well
nourished. Unless the child receives from birth
the proper diet you cannot hope to have H
The breast-fed baby Is often undernourished
This is of course, due to the mother's diet If
she avoids the foods containing lime, iron, phos
phorus and vitamins, the baby also must go with
out them. Consequently, every nursing mothei
should take great care to have her diet includ
plenty of fresh green vegetables, fresh an

It came hack to Eddie's mind
that by profession he was a con

DUBLIN. (AP) Ireland has
a prejudice against "foreign
games," and golf was for long con
sidered a foreign game.
It had few players till Arthur
Balfour, then chief secretary, gave
It an Impetus of fashion, and in
those days to wield a golf club
stamped a man as an uncompro
mising supporter of the British
regime. But . nowadays golf has
no political distinction.
There are scores of golf clubs
all over the country, and the game
brings together men of all sec
tions and classes. Members of
the Dail and Senate are keen
players and hold tournaments.
Practically every member of the
cabinet Is a golfer. But till recently-
President Cosgrave held
out. He gave In at last, however,
and at Rosslare, where he spent
his summer. holiday, took lessons
from a local professional.
It was an Irishman who invent

cure for all worries, because when
you are playing well nothing mat
ters, and wben. you are playing
badly nothing else matters.

Xnarf Mystifies His Friends
With Another "Club"
One day, as MIJ, Flor, Hanid
and Tarn the little shadow-children
with the tnrned-abont names
were in the parlor, they heard
a lond voice coming from the vio
lin atop of the piano. They knew
the voice belonged to Knarf, the
shadow-hoy. Master Knarf, you
must know, was president of a
club which always met Inside the
Climbing upon the piano they
peered Inside the violin and there
they saw Knarf pacing up and
down as though deciding some
thing of the greatest Importance.
He kept saying In a loud voice:
"Yes it must be done. It must
be done!" The others were curious
to know to whom he might be
talking, but as they could see no
one, they concluded he was talk
ing to himself.
"What must be done?" Tarn
asked. Knarf looked up hastily.
"Hm m, he said. "It a se
cret I can't tell you. It's only for
members of my club."
Now Knar fa clubs were very
odd. He was always the president,
the vice-president, the secretary
and the treasurer. In addition to
that, he was all the members roll
ed Into one. In short, he was the
whole club all by himself.'
The others let themselves down
Into the Inside of the violin.
"What's the name of your
club?" Hanid inquired.
"The name of the club is the
"What's to Be Done Club," Knarf
replied. "We decide Just what's to
be done "
"About what?" asked the oth
ers. "Well, It might be about this,
or about that, or about the other
thing; but it generally isn't."
, The others were surprised.
"Then what is it about?"
Knarf shook his head. "If you
belonged to my club I could tell
you, but as yon don't, I can't.
"We'll Join your club then,"

"Oh, no; you cant. The rules
do not allow any more than one
member. You'll have to Join some
other club. Now don't bother me
any more. The club has a great
deal of things to think about!"
At this the "What's to Be Done
Club" started pacing up and down
again, saying: "It must be done,
it must be done."
More and more puxzled did the
others become. What could it be
that Knarf was so anxious should
be done? They tried to guess.
' "It must be his lessons he wants
done," Flor said.
Knarf frowned. "No, that's not

'What's to Be Done Club' hates to

Then Yam guessed. "He wants
everything to be done so that he
won't have anything to do."
Knarf paid no attention to this
remark. He merely continued pac
ing up and down.
"Maybe," said Hanid. "he wants
nothing to be done "
But the cunning shadow boy
said nothing. The others simply
couldn't make him out. What
could it be that he seemed to

A Bowl of LbcIoiu Pears to Tempt
the Fruit Dodger
To tempt one into eating more
raw fruit (and few of us eat
enough of It), a howl of pears
should be kept convenient and
conspicuous. It's the kind of fruit
which should be eaten between
meals, because a large. Juicy pear
always seems too much for a des
sert. (Nevertheless, one of the fa
vorite dishes offered to top off an
excellent Italian dinner' Is a lus
cious big pear accompanied by a
triangle of Camembert cheese, and
the custom is to eat them togeth
er.) 'Tears" means Bartletts or
Seckles or Winter Nells to most of
us, but as a matter of fact these
are only three of the eighty-odd
varieties. Pears come in many
shapes and sixes and, and while
they were once an exclusive sum
mer fruit with a limited season
we can not get some kind of pear
In almost every month of the year.
Pears should he judged by
soundness, and not necessarily by
color. If a pear shows even a
slight spot or blemish, it may be
worse when cut open. The desir
able fruit Is of good size suitable
to its variety and firm to the
touch.- Even if it looks fairly grees
it is quite safe to purchase. Left
In a cool place for a few days
the pear will ripen beautifully.
But once ripe, it should be eaten
at once, because at that point de
cay sets in rapidly. ,
The best way to eat pears Is
raw. But wben there is an abund
ance of them and the au naturel
method gets tiresome, they can
be served In many other ways.
They are excellent as fruit cup.
and the tinkle of knives and forks.
Master Knarf looked up bright
ly, and exclaimed! "Oh now it's
done!" The next Instant he sprang
out of the violin and disappeared
towards the dining-room.
The others gased at each other.
He wanted dinner to be done!"

When serving pears as a salad -one
must be careful not to com
bine with too pungent ingredients.
The flavor of pears while delight
ful Is faint and easily overwhelm
ed. However, the right kind of
combination will develop instead
of drowning the flavor. Pears and
bananas somehow blend well with
out loss of flavor to either. But
the more common habit of putting
a ball of cream heese atop a raw
pear rather squelches the fruit.
Also if pears are mounded on let
