TT MAY seem t bit extravagant to
paterfamilias or friend husband
wben the morning mall brings a bill
for on exotic printed velvet blouse to
gether with the "little Item" ot one
two-piece black, brown, navy, wine or
dark green (at the case may be) vel
vet frock. At a matter of fnct It U
piece of clever economy on the part
of the woman who foresee that the
skirt of the plain velvet two-piece will
serve admirably wltb both tti own
blouse and one of printed velvet
two frocks for a little more than the
cost of one, Wltb thla wise invest
ment one ma; be assured of being
elegantly gowned for every dressy day-
tlmt occasion which tht midwinter so
cial season msy bring.
There's no fabric which "turns the
trick of dressing well, to clotely at
doet velvet. When the handsome
printed velvet blouse madt Its appear
ance It wit cast of "love at Qrst
light" wltb tht woman of fashion. It
fills real need for It lends Just that
touch of festive drest which It so es
sential In every op-to-date wardrobe.
Just one blaze of entrancing color
art these new velvet print and ont
cannot havt too much of gay color In
winter time. Among tht fascinations
In tht lint of exquisite coloring,
shaded velvets art receiving special
attention. A typical new-mode cos
tame Includes, say, skirt of chestnut
brown velvet, tht ramt shirred,
draped, tiered or scalloped, to glvt It
maximum of charm. Tbt velvet
blouse wltb this begins a very durk
brown st the hlpllne, shading lighter
and lighter toward the lop, where si
tht neckline It resolves Itsell Into
lovely cocoa or cream color. Can Im
agination picture a mort llknhla vel
vet dress? Whether the basic colot
bt gray, violet, navy, wine nr any ot
the fashionable hues, tbt sums artful
thudlng takes plait.
Wltb the skirt ol black velvet, s
blnuet of multi-colored velvet print Is
most effective. The most nolle vivid
coloring doiit In bold startling pat
leriilng vie with those of softly hi hi il
ed pastel shades. A blouse nf printed

' draped velvet skirt in the picture
the accompanying hat ta velvet, too.
And now It Is the hat with
feather which Tarts acclaims. Such
"tricky little feathers, tool They are
the sort which are pert and stylish
rather than picturesque. Clusters ol
tiny quills, for Instance, darting out
saucily over the left ear, or sn Inset
of feather pads perhaps, so Inter
worked as to seem a very part of tht
bat Itself, or a gorgeous feather Rower
with Its counterpart posing on the
lapel of one's coat.
There's no doubt about It these
clever feather novelties art helping
out wonderfully In acquiring becotn
iugnest for the headlining butt which
sre. now so In fashion. It gives
skullcap or a toque a more flattering
silhouette when Its lines of severity
art forgotten because of perky
feather or two.
The all-feather turban Is tht latest
enthusiasm to declare itself among
women of fashion who delight In em

"Let nit smoke this In peace and
make up my mind, before wt go back."
Tbey sat, saying nothing, Ned's
thoughts busy with bis own future.
The woman beside hlra was facing the
long years to come, honestly, for the
first time. She knew that her position
was untenable. Sht knew also that
Claude Dabba asked only the priv
ilege of watching over and caring for
Mary, for Ned and for beraelf. He
would ask nothing of her, grateful if
she would stay near them for Mary's
sake, grateful that the children loved
Tolly's mind leaped to Its fine con
clusion. Here was her opportunity.
It might even be that In Claude she
would find the friend and companion
she had missed and longed for, since
Mary bad gone her own way. LHd
not Clauds fact middle age, too, but
wltb philosophy, and brushing aside
Ita disillusions, neither grudged youth
Its due nor shrank from life. Cauda
waa alive, very much so, but of life
he expected little; of himself, much.
Tolly wondered If she would ever
grssp life ss serenely and as firmly as
he did, taking wfiat It gave, grudg
ing nothing that It withheld.
Tolly threw away her cigarette.
"Keady to go back. Nedr
In the library at Claude't home,
Claude and Mary were turning over
plans for the new factory and the pro
posed public library and recreation
"Mother and Ned take long time
on that drive," Mary observed, finally.
"Oh, Dadl do yon think any things
happened V
"Not a bit of It," Cauda told her
tranquilly. "They've Just gone a bit
further than they Intended. Why,
daughter, what's wrong T Mary bad
clutched bla arm.
"Nothing, only I get so worried
nowadays. I never used to. Hut
Ned's a little reckless, don't yon

"No," Caude rose to Ned's defense
sturdily. "Ned's a splendid driver."
Tben he laughed. "Ia it Ned. or your
mother, who's so precious that you

"Ob bush. Father, don't aay It,"
Mary Implored, and then laughed at
herself, helplessly. "See how primi
tive I'm growing, like the heathen
who give ugly names to their best
beloved to shield them from tbt wrath
of tbt gods."
"It's queer," Caude began, mort to
himself then bit daughter, "but the
old folk were so often right My
mother used to say that lovt made
women aavaga tnd men gentle. I
"There they are P Mary ran to the
doorway leading to the garden. Hhe
stopped astonished. "Father, some
thing must havt happened. Mother's
getting out."
Caude looked over her shoulder.
"Let me past, Mary. If Tolly's com
ing Into my store, 1 must bt there to
wait on her."
Mary watched htm go, but stood
waiting. She felt a little aad and
alone, Ned came Into tbt room from
tbt ball behind ber.
"Ned Mary said as sht turned,
"has anything happenedr
"Something nice. Mother's com
ing in."
"Mother!" Mary echoed, ber lips
parted to ask a question.
"And before she gets here," Ned
told her hurriedly, coming very close,
"I want to glvt you your freedom. I
think what you wanted la coining
about Mother's going to be reason
able and settlt down for awhllt here,
and you're fret to do aa you Ilka
about about that engagement of
yours, Mary."
He paused, and as sht remained
silent, continued, slowly: "I can't go
on this way. I want you to know that
and to know that Til keep on work
ing with Caude, no matter what hap
pens. Ton set, I simply csn't stick
this, Mary. I'm Just an ordinary able
bodied man, who wants to be married
soon, and expects to be loved, not Just
tolerated and dodged and held off.
Tbe woman I marry will simply have
to want me as much, and aa near, as
I want her."
Mary looked at him, her eyes on
that mouth that was so like Loren
Rangeley's now, so hard, so straight
so determined. She bad certalntly not
meant to do It but there seemed to be
Just one shameless thing to do. At
the touch of her hand on tils arm, Ned
turned to ber, and Mary pulled hit
bead down and kissed him, knowing
that after that the would never escape
from any engagement he made. Ned
held her tightly, bla eager lips against
her own, then hot against her pulsing

Mary that sht hud not been told this

had refused to listen. Hht wat tur
prised now that Mary did not move
toward her.
"Mary," tht began, "I'm going to
be good and stay"
"Mary!" Claude had seen his girl's
face and moved toward her.
"Mother Father I" Ned'a volet
stopped them both. "Mary and I ride
to town tonight to be married. Wt

They were going, and at tht last
Tolly had her reward, for aa her girl
