The Married Life of Helen and Warren By MABEL HERBERT URNER Originator of "Their Married Life." Author of "The Journal of a Neglected Wife," "The Woman Alone," etc. On a Dark, Wintry Morning Warren Gets Up in a Surly, Irritable Mood (Copyright, 1915, by the McClure Newspaper Syndicate.) Warren yawned, raised himself on his elbow, and stared at the small nickel clock that was half hidden by the thermo bot tle. Leaning out of bed to move the bottle, with sleepy awkwardness he knocked off the tumbler beside it. "Oh-oh!" as the crash awoke H e l e n. "What's that?" "Smashed a c .glass." "It's one of the good glasses, too," Mabel H. Urner. drowsily. "Then why the devil do you put things so I can't see the clock?" settling down for another five minutes. "Hope you had enough air last night-this room's cold as Greenland." Helen, who always got up and closed the windows, now with shivering re luctance slid out of bed.

The Man recognized it but he could not define it. tier manner to ward him was flawless, and no one could say truthfully that she did not make him a good wife. After thinking the matter over for a long time The Man decided that the change existed only in his imagina tion--a thing born of his too great love for The Woman--but even as he thus assured himself he knew that the solu tion was not true. He spent a deal of his time in trou bled mental questioning when he was absent from her, but when he went home her ready smile dispelled his fear, and he was able to believe, as long as he felt the sense of her near ness, that the love she bore him was the same that it had been when he chose her from among all other women to be his wife. She left nothing undone to make his home comfortable. When he returned to it after a busy day in his downtown office she was se...

THECAI " aM Publi EWEST SCENIC EnteAILWAY A LWAY `; WITZERLAND'S newest scenic railway opens for traffic this summer. It runs from Brig along the line of the Furka rost road and traverses a little known region of the Alps. When the Simplon line was opened in 1906 there was probably no other city in the Rhone valley which gained more through this achievement than Brig. a delightfully quaint community at the junction of the Simplon and Furka post routes. A few years later, in the summer of 1913. the completion of the celebrated IA)tschberg railway added further to the importance of the town. The Simplon railway forms the in ternational highway between the Lake of Geneva and the Rhone valley and Italy. and the Loetschberg line, con necting with the Simplon at Brig, has brought the Rhone valley and the Bernese Oberland in direct communi cation. There remained one other Alpine pass, the Furka. which had no train service. The Furka post road, forty-two and one-half miles long runs from Br...

OVERCOMING FEAR OF DEATH Uselessness of Feeling Apparent to All, But Few Ever Succeed in Mastering It. The spirit will still be in a measure the slave of the body while we are capable of fear. The dream in our hearts is somehow to break through the last barrier of fear-to come out, as someone has said, on the other side of fear. The uselessness of the fear of death is as apparent to us as the sun in the sky. Its ignobleness is a thing that haunts all who are subject to it. Whether the love of death as the leliverer in the spirit of Walt Whit man is a passion to be cultivated may be doubted. Those who have scorned death most, as the great gentlemen of wi the renaissance did, saw it none the m less the destroyer of the beauty of men's bodies and of the light of the th world as the common man knows it.h To the religious mind, which accepts hi the vision of a real and populated lo world happier than this beyond the grave, death is no doubt the deliverer. h But even to most religious men...

The Married Life of Helen and Warren By MABEL ,RBERT URNER Originator of "Their Married Life." Author of "The Journal of a Neglected Wife," "The Woman Alone," etc. They Dine at an Anarchist Restaurant in an Atmosphere of Real Bohemia (Copyright, 1915, by the McClure Newspaper Syndicate.) The clatter of dishes mingled with the hum of voices, and the air was thick with smoke and garlic. The long tables were without cloths, and wooden benches took the place of chairs. Around the walls was a line of hooks, from which hung a motley ar ray of wraps. From the door way they scanned crowded tables for an empty place. "How about that other room? You Mabel H. Urner. wait here," and Warren strode through to what had been the back parlor of the once dignified old house. Although Helen had wanted to see what this much-talked-of anarchist restaurant was like, the stifling cig arette smoke and bare tables were not alluring. She was almost glad when Warren came back with a brief "full up." Hut as th...
