'Dsar Kdltor' and Social Corneri'aes:
Just a little description of my visit to
Cane Ann. Gloucester. Mass: " .
Starting from Connecticut by '. trolley
and train, ef course could not see much
of the,, scenery, as the train goes so
fast ; but what one could get was beau
tiful, with the rocks towering so high,
the different green in the -trees and the
1 vines running "hither, thither and yon.
; As we neared 'Boston I saw trees- teait
! L-very which way, mostly white birch
; irees. It looked as if ax terrible storm
:;ad passed through nd took its toll
'.-.here it passed.,
V Arriving at. mjr destination I learned
i.'-.iiis was true. Arriving in Boston I
i vas met by my, son and wife." .We jour
neyed across the street where an Essex
phaeton waited and then I started on
the last lap of ray journey. From Bos
ton to Gloucester is some S(i miles or
more. Getting out of Boston was some
trick as the traffic is wicked' and it
seems as if the people did not care if
they were run over or not. .
We -Jeft the big city about 3 o'clock
and arrived in Gloucester about 6 ..o'
clock, going through Lynn, Salem and
Beverly Farms, t The last named is a
very pretty place. , . . "

Perhaps -she had soma reason for the in
congruity but certainly.it made her whole
costume grotesque. ' .' .-
;The seeond instance was not strictly a
matter of clothes, yet it illustrates a not
uncommon fault. I include it here. The
woman was well along in middle life. She
marched through the night to -fight at

To sum up: Good? dressing does not
depend on the price paid for the clothes
worn. It depends uson their cleanliness,
neatness, fitness for the occasion, and the
absence of small defects, and ale very
greaiiy-upon your own-unconsciousness' of
your apparel. This one is gained by one
infallible ru-e: Look yourself over with
care before you leave your room. , Be sure

Dear Sisters of the' Social Corner:
Among the interesting poijKs along the
Connecticut shore premment jn early
h'Jitiiry, Lantern Hill lias its place of
record. Muny are the ligeuds that have
made it conspicuous both to lovers of
romance and to lovers of nature
. Local history docs not appear to state
authentically as " to how it came to be
known as "Lantern Hill," and its origin
ie lft to legandary construction, tiut as
early as 16ud it was known by-the early
settlers as "Lanthorne- HilL" It is the
highest point along the sound, rising
580 feet aboye the surface -of the sea.
and at a. remote period it is said that a
pole was raised on' its summit and a
lantern swung, from hs top, which eerved
as a guide to."the seaman crossing yie
sound. But it' is many years since the
maruier with watchful eye looked away,
searching the distant hilltops' for the
lantern aloft on Lantern Hill.

tually expect it of them and criticize
them for its lack. et we sometimes ;
fail to see the necessity- of responding
in like manner. Don't we?. It's most
surprising the way some 'of us expect
evennees of temperament in alj about
us while at the same time we are ex
hibiting exactly the opposite character
"J don't mean anything ty H, it's just
my way," we say in aelt-extenuation.
But it's a big .question whether anyone
has ft right to a "way" that will con
tinually .cloud the day for "others. Also,
what a senseless thing it is to act con
tinually in a way that, according to our
own statements "doesn't . mean any
thing." '..,"' - '''.,. - r.. '.'-
Why not act in a way that does mean
something? Why not drive away the
belittling, cloud of selfishness that keeps
us from seeing that we ean't make our
ways "mean nothing" to others just by
saying that they don't? Why should we
go constantly stumMing through life,
wounding those who love 11s and whom
at heart we love, pandering to our love
of self-assertion, our own sense of self
pity? ' - '
Seif-excirses "amount to little except
to show our own weakness. Why not
feel a. -sense of -shasie--in ,declaringJy
word or action that we don't -eare
whether we wound or not?
