Do you talk about people, things or
1 Ideas? For these are, roughly divided,
the three grades of conversation. Lis
ten to your own conversation for just
one day. Listen as if you. were listen
ing to a stranger, and at the end of
it ask yourself frankly if you are a
bore, or an interesting person. "
Hajf of good talk, of courseyes,
more than half, is good listening. And
to listen well, yea must be interested
in what the other person is saying.
If - you can't be interested in the sub
ject of his discourse, you can at least
interest yourself In him even Jf you
must ask yourself what chain of cir
cumstances ever led him to want to
talk about subjects so trifling so dull.
The good stalker, the one who hns
; something interesting to say and gays
it in an interesting way, forms his or
her conversation; on certain perfectly
defiite principles or rules. This may
be done consciously or unconsciously,
but;.Uie-jefrct'rjs' thsajne..'.'.; It la j'ist
as ll.lto "ieasureourpwn convor
satfon by these rules and see if we
Jive, up to them. ;
The. first two I have cited abovo.
They consist In- always letting the
other person have his say and in be
ing interested in It - - '
Perhaps the next rule should be
never, to talk about anything whore
you must make pretence of knowl
edge. -There .te always sure to be
scmeono : who - hears you to realize
that your criticism ' of Italian art or
Gothic architecture or the English,
essayists Is a sham. So If you don't
know anything about a subject,' say
so frankly and ask for information.
You will get, iti often from those
whom you supposed knew nothing; of
such things.-';;.'.;..-? ' . r-
I remember hearing a charming
girl, who was asked if she, had seen
Burner ones'.. "Vampire" (then being
exhibited in this country) . replied
blandly; "No, I haven't Mother isn't
letting me go, to the -theater much
this season."!; So you see,; by trying
to appear wise1 she only displayed her
ignorance. ' : ;; " --.j .;1::.-;y ; ' ;.-:
And then there's another good tuIr:
Don't; talk about yourself. -Very' ."few
people are vitally interested in you or
your affairs, So ;keepyourself: in the
background vnless- you . have some
thing of special interest to tell, or are
talking'to yonr intimates.- r '..
When I was at- bearding school! tJie
lady principal once told lis in a little
informal ' talk; of good . manners, , that
disease, dre and domestic. were pey
er mentioned in , -good ...society AP'd
since then ftwhen, I've - h.eard. woman
after woman, tell about hospitals and
oneratiens ; and' nurses. and the like
fwith such .keeni relish J have iongpi
to pass on to them the advice of my
toardmg school days. : . ;;
' Domestic 1 too - might, well . be left
out of conversation; though. I mast
admit that an amusing anecdote con
cerning you cook "? sometimes ."goes'
very. weIL! And I don't believe that
women could ' ever taboo the sucject
of dress entirely, when tho talk is
just among ourselves you know.
But, after all, good talk is not so
much the subject, as the views you
have to express and the way you ex
press them. Wide reading nd es
pecially reading aloudwill give you
a vocabulary and help you to talk.
Letting the other person have 'his say
and listening to him really listening
will d6 the. rest.
AJi ENT .TH E BATH ING SUIT.
For the maid who " would look as
well upon the sands as at any othsr
time, there are the .most fetching lit
tle suits thisyear. It is true tlr.it
there are seldom very radical changes :
in the bathing suit modes, but there
are certain little touches, little points
whicn distinguish the suit and mark
its season and its correctness.
One of the new ideas this year, for
stance, is to U3e the fashionable rat
ine for trimming This is one of the
placeswhere it is quite practical, for
this material looks, for; all the world
like a dissected Turkish towel and
towels do not mind watr,r One of the
new suits had a quaintly shaped yoke
of white ratine, while vthe suit itself
was. pf dark blue mohair, lustrous
and heavyt'wBands of the white ratine
finished the short, plain sleeves. .
If one is slender enough, she 'nay
adept the' shirred trimming which was
used with such good effect on a dark
taffeta silk model; This had a shirred
band outline the slightly high waist
line, and there was a shirred orna
ment at the side, where the skirt
fastened. v '" '-: -' v.
Black satin bathing suits are very
good looking, and one may now pur
chase satin that the shops assure us
will not be hurt by fresh -or salt water.
The satin suite are sometimes made
up quite elaborately, .with fancy but
tons, and contrasting satin or braid
bands , and ornaments. -

now unless some great leader, some
powerful mind, can save us from what
