Made Her Way by
by MAUDE E. BERNARD
OT so very long ago a young girl in the nortjiern part of New
N York state decided to go to college, but when ways and means
were discussed it was found that she would have to supplement
in some way the limited amount the family could afford to
give her. Fortunately her faith in herself and in human
nature in general was her chief asset and she finally convinced
her parents that if she only could get in the college she could
do the rest. She was not quite sure how this feat was going
to be accomplished, but her courage was high.
During the first few weeks she discovered that the college
girls' fondness for candy was no fable and she made some fudge and otlier
candies from her own recipes, which had in her home town been considered
superior to anything that could be bought, and offered the candy for sale
among the girls.
It met with instant success, and she made more, which she disposed
of with such rapidity that in a short time the demand had grown among
the girls in the college and their friends to such an extent that she found
it necessary to open a place of business outside the college.
Still she had her way to pay through college and could not take larg
financial risks, so she rented a space under the stairs in one of the busiest
business buildings and used a kitchen table for a counter. In this she
displayed her various goods done up in attractive boxes with each box
labeled with the contents and weight and price. She
could not afford to keep a salesgirl behind the counter
while she was obliged to be absent, 'and here is where
her great faith in human nature served her.
She tacked a card up, saying, "Make your pur
chase and leave the money," and she declares she never
lost a cent or a piece of candy. Today this same girl
has a chain of candy shops throughout the country and
she is fully convinced that the secret of her success
is the faith she had in the old college days with the
little stand under the stairs.

Hiding than a. old shoe.
rTle shoe dealer and the cobbler are to

on shoes and also by the transfer of germs
from one shoe to another while in the cob

every one is extremely careful to burn or disinfect the clothing, but so
often the shoes are overlooked and these diseases are readily conveyed by
the wearer to his neighbors, especially in the. case of scarlet fever.
The germ hunter is ever active and it seems to the man wvho is in

tin cup at the spring, that we are not going to be permitted to breathe in
the same room with another after a time, but will each wear our own

(opyright, 1911. by Assoo
Because Harold Speed was twenty
four years old, and because Miss Ger
trude Rayburn was only nineteen;
because he was rather prim and pre
'clse, and she was a sort of tomboy;
because he was in love with her and
because of several other reasons, he
had come to speak of her as Little'.
She was saucy and impudent and
independent, and she was very de
mure and deceitful and ingenious.
If she loved him in return she wasn't
going to let him know it until she
got good and ready. She resented
his primness and preciseness and tl.
rebukes he offered.
When her mother talked to he
about her wicked ways she elevatei'
her chittish chin and replied:
"And who is Harold to boss me.
He is only a bit older than I am,
though he acts like an old deacon.
I'm going to keep at him until he
drops that awful dignity and acts as
any other young man would."
"He has asked you to marry him,
I presume?" queried the mother.
"Yes, he has, and how did he do
it? We were sitting in the summer
house one evening, and I was chew
ing gum. It was a beautiful night.
The crickets were singing, and the
night breeze was rustling the big wil
low. It was just the nicest night in
the world to talk love, but did lie
talk it? No, mamma. After we had
sat there like two stupids for a long
half hour, and just as I was expect
ing him to drop to his knees and
propose, he said:
"'Do you think we ought to keep a
cat when we are married?'
"Why, mamma, I was so mad that
I almost swallowed my gum! Did
you ever hear the like?"
"Harold is a very steady young
man, and you are hoity-toity," re
plied the mother.
"I'm not. It's just only that I won't
be a grandmother till I have to be.
Oh, you wait. I'll bring that young

Uver, and certain folks
were hshing through the ice with
-ood luck. Mr. Speed was to come
lown for the last two days of their
stay. There were four clear days in
which to snowball, skate, fish and
slide down hill. Even a snowman
was built at the gate and a sign of
'Dignity" would have been hung
iround his neck if Miss Chit could
iave had her way. The thought that
,Ir. Speed was to come down and
;poll the last two days set a certain
little head thinking. A plan was
laid, and the boy who had batted her
fish-hooks was called in to conr*pire.
He grinned and Miss Chit giggled.
"What's afoot now?" asked the sus
"Nothing, mamma dear. Harold will
be here tomorrow. He will arrive at
11 o'clock, the same as we did. I
shall be over at the lake fishing. Tell
him where I am. No, there's nothing
doing, mamma. I'd Just like to see him
catch a fish through the ice."
Harold arrived. As usual, he was
punctual to the minute. He was
shown the path to the lake and he
walked over there. His last few
steps were hastened by screams for
help. Yes, he really hastened, and
the sight that met his eyes as he
stood on the shore made him thrill.
Miss Gertrude was afloat on a cake
of ice. She was holding out her
hands to him in supplication. There
was a boy standing around on one
foot with his finger in his mouth and
"A boat! A boat!" cried Harold
as he seized the lad and shook him
out of his coat.

cake of ice.

boat, and only a board for a paddle.
but it wvas launched and on its way
to the rescue when a strange thing
happened. Little Miss Chit seized
the end of the rope and began pulling
herself and cake of ice back to the
main portion and presently stepped
on the firm Ice. As she did so she
sat down and clapped her hands and
began to laugh. Harold slowly re
turned the boat and then walked out
to where the chuckles and giggles
and chirrups came from. For thirty
seconds ho kept his face mobile.
Th en he grinned-then smiled-then
broke down and laughed till the
"I just bet them two folks are
going to get married!" announced the
boy as he sauntered up to the house.
"What makes you think so?"
"'Cause they are sitting down on
the ice a shakin' hands and laughin'
like two idiots. Hark! You can
hear him holler clear here!"
As They Auction in Japan.
Sealed bids are used in auctioning
property in Japan. There is no shout
ing. The auctioneer announces to the
audience that ho has such and such
a piece of property for sale and in
vites bids. Thoso who wish to bid
write their bids and names on slips
of paper. Thle paper is folded and
placed in a box. When the auctioneer
sees no more bids coming he opensl
the box and sorts out the bids. The
highest bid takes the property.
It is like a bond sale, no one knows
what his neighbor bids. If a bidder
Is anxious to get the property he will
not put in a small offer.
On the contrary he wvill very likely
bid all the roperty Is wvorth. For
this reason an owner never puts up
his property for auction unless ho
wvants to sell it.
