FROM A WOMAN'S, r
In The Honolulu
lu going about In the shops of Ho
nolulu, one cannot but be especially
Impressed with tho good tusto dis
played b tho salesgirls In choosing
their dross for work. This Is so scl
domrtho caso In cities on the mainland
that the condition here Is strikingly
noticeable. I tliltik I havo seen but
one girl who made any prctciiBc of
finery nnd gowgnws. Illgh-heeled
shoes and Inainmoth pompadours I
havo not seen, and very sensibly loo,
tho ban has seemingly been placed
upon conspicuous Jewelry and bright
colored ribbons underneath tiln
wnlst materials. Nntlco Hit) next
tlmo that" you go shopping nnd you
will seo that the girls wear neat, tail
ored shirt-waists, with comfortable
turn-down collars, tho chief orna
ment being a bit of laca or embroid
ery In the form of a chic Jabot. 1
havo seen also a number of plain,
pretty llttlo one-piece frocks which
nre most suitable for work.
Moreover, 1 havo never found In any
city saleswomen who were more
courteous, plensant and ngreeiiblo to
deal with than those In Honolulu. Of
course I havo found exceptions even
here. Only yesterday I was forced to
quibble for scvorul minutes with nn
unobliging clerk In u store on Hotel
stroet, concerning n bit of hand em
broidery. Sho objected seriously to
lifting down tho boxes so that I
might sec the different patterns (the
article was to bo u birthday gut ami
I was particular) and filially after
heaping coals of lira on her head by
thanking her courteously, I went to
nnothor store and after being shown
tho assortment in the particular line
1 wanted, was nblo to mnko n satis
factory choice. Tho very reluctance
of the first girl (lid not encourage a
purchase, and 1 feel that douhtles
others must hnvo had the samo exper
ience. If they also ended by pur
chasing from another store, the man
agement would certainly do well to
nmko n chnngo In the matter of help.
Visit u Coed Tonlr.
This case, was, however, I mil sure,
ono of tho exceptions rather than the
rule. Resides being obliging, most of
the ulrls with whom I havo had occa
sion to deal havo been so brlgni ami
sunny that my visit to tho store was
something of n tonic.
Qf courso one cannot expect clerks
in ln cheerful nil of tho tlmo, for
thcro aro times when tills old world
looks bluo to them as It' docs to us all
occasionally. And sometimes I think
thev aro almost Justified in losing
patience with tho Irritating, nggrcvut-
imr piih nmers whom iney lire omigi'ii
to sorve. Of courso wo can't always
find whnt wo want In any ono store,
oven nfter tho clerks havo shown us
nearly everything In her paytlculnr
department. Hut It Isn't necessary
for us to sweep haughtily out as If
It were tho fault of tho Biiloswoman

want and I thankl you for your trou

ers And lu speaking or shops mid shop
ping I nm reminded of a condition
which u man brought to' my ntten;
tlon a short tlmo ago. Ho iisked mo
why It was that women mo nlwajs
given precedence over a man In a
ciowded shop. Ho ailil tint only th-j
lilgjit before he had stopped into, J
nient-market lo get a t,ie.U for din
per, and had been obliged to wait
until hnlf a dozen women who emtio
In afler him had been served.
That doesn't seem Jut fair to mo
I think wo women ought ir.t to ex-'
peel any inoio favors nt Iho hands
of the butcher or groccryiiinn than
aro accorded our brothers or hus
bands. Tho man who stops at the
storo on his way from tho ofllco at
night Is no doubt fnr moro tired thanH'
wo women who hnpfien to bo going f,
some belated mopping mere nt mo
same tlmo, and doubtless much moro -
eager to reach his homo.
I know that this condition of at- jjp
fairs does exist, but 1 don l Know
why. Do joii? I am Inclined In be
lieve that It Isn't evidence of nny
special courtesy on the part of tho
butcher or baker, but tnai wo jiibi
sort of .uggrcsMvely demand this pro
ccdencu. Perhaps that is why our
husbands complain If wo ask them
to do n llttlo shopping for us. What
think j mi?
And while on this subject I am
tempted to say u word about the wo
man who waits until half past flvo
or six to tako tho car irom down
