ore like the Man With the Hako In tho
"Pilgrim's Progress." who was so pre
occupied With his task that he could not
raise his eyes from tho ground, and
tailed to see tho sheer loveliness of the
sky above. For him tho singing of the
birds and the glory of tho sunlight had

Too. many of us are following in tho
footsteps of the Man with the Hake. To
auoh poor creatures I would say look up,
look up. In a wide, sweeping view and let
tits sunlight Int Not until then can tho
wonder and tho glory of the world bo
fully realized. For the world Is full of
happiness and beauty, If we but seek It
in the right way.
t think the truest happiness Is found
within, oursolves. It cannot spring from
outward circumstance. "A heart at
leisure from Itself" Is Its finest, Its only
true foundation. The happiest heart Is
that which Is self-lmmolatlng. Thero are
many kinds of pleasures, keen and de
lightful In their Infinite variety. These
are but fleeting, and leave no footprints
on the sands of life. BUt happiness means
the satisfaction of the soul, than which
no finer thing exists.

too self-centretl. She thinks about her
self too much. Her thoughts move round
the tiniest circle, her own little life.
Around her are a million souls requiring
comfort, sympathy. She sees them not,
sho heeds them not. Yet If she turned
her thoughts to such as need her help
she would find, true happiness.
Thero are so many things which a
woman alone can do. The world Is simply

Thus happiness can be cultivated, but
wo must first earn our right to It. Some
women Imagine that tho doing of nny
sort of work Is derogatory to their
dignity. Oh, tho shqer folly of that
thought! As fnr as rank and position
go, tho highest women In the world work
the hardest. A notable example to bo
cited Is the Queen of Rngland. Her dally
routine Is more strenuous than that of
the average washerwoman.
To th unhappy, the discontented, tho
unsettled, 1 would strongly advocate the
saving power of work, work to some use

mankind. It brings happiness with It,
and a permanent satisfaction. Tho work
ers have the best time In this old world,
there is no doubt of thnt. And why?
The answer Is the obvious one. They
are hnppy because they aro doing some
thing for others. Their minds arc lifted
out of the little egotistical rut of self,

The new table-runners are decidedly

An Indian stylo seen recently is made
out of brown crash. The ends are dec

In bright red, green, blue, yellow and

AFTERNOON FROCK OF PUSSY
THE H OMEN
Now is the time for the women of Eng
land to use their golden opportunity. The
sad fortunes of war have taken away
their lords and masters, and now they
have their chance. The Invasion of
men's Bpheres by women workers up to
the present crisis has been the exception,
rather than the rule, In England.
The recent census returns state that
there ore 4.830,731 "occupied females" in
England. This may seem Insignificant,
but each year's increase la more astound

this field was Invaded first by the
dreaded females the lawyers swore it was
Impossible to keep them. "Women can't
keep secrets," they said. "We don't
want them." However, from 100 women
law clerks In 1831 the number increased
to 21G9 in 1011, and since then this num
ber has almost doubled.
The woman doctor Is not so familiar
in England as over here, but she Is grad
ually winning recognition. There are
numerous hospitals, with a staff com
posed entirely and exclusively of woman.

tho blues and the violets and tho soft

In tho same decree, but every ono Is

quite often unconsciously.

to predict a mode or style hns perhaps
no value other than that of a personal

room In which there was nothing but a
Bible, an apple and a J5 bill. He decided
that If he found the boy eating the apple
he would mako him a, farmer; If reading
the Bible, he would train him for the
church, and if he had pocketed the money
he would make htm a stockbroker.
Entering, he found the boy sitting on
the Bible and eating the apple, with the
J6 bill In his pocket.
He became a politician.

The Self-pitying Girl
Did you ever know a girl who was nsvt
happy unless she was mlserabloT That
Is tho exact ptoturo ot Ida. All the vast
number of strange aches, pains and
maladfoa have eettled upon her. There)
Is no Illness she has not had, no horror
sho has not undergone. Sho revels lit
grim and disgusting details of opera'
tlons. and Is nevor happier than when shd
has a sick person to talk to. Stnco tha
poor Invalid can't protect herself, she)
proceeds to toll her how near she carao
to denth when sho had her tonsils re
moved, how Bhe had been ralsorablo fop
weeks, and would probably have a ner
vous breakdown beforo the year was out,
Her friends regard her mysterious all
ments with so much amusement that they
fall to offer any sympathy when sh la
really sick. As a visitor she Is far from,
being a favorite.
"My dear Airs. Brown," sho declares '
emphatically, as she takes off her wraps.
"You will pardon me, I'm sure, If I go
and He down for a while. I've been shop
ping all day and I'm Just tired out. I'm,
not strong enough to stnnd these things,,
and I really must remember to take tha
proper care of myself. You're such a
dear soul. I'm sure you won't mind send
ing up a little toast and tea, and som
broth, nnd a light dessert for my dinner.
I can't eat much any more, my digestion'
simply ruined. The doctor told me tho
other day that I was a complete wreck,"
The husband of a woman like this has
a very sad existence. Indeed. It his
breakfost Is not on time, and ho cnnlt
find his collars, and his laundry hasn't
been returned, and his razor has served
as a can opener wjth more or los3 suo
ccsb nobody Is to blame but himself, says
his wife. She Is too delicate to worry her
self with such details, and he Is a brute ,
to suggest It! How any one could expect
a weak woman to do manual labor Is
beyond comprehension, says she.
A man, or a woman either, can say
very little against an argument like this.
It Is quite Impossible to disillusion any
woman who has t:.e idea that she is deli
cate. And yet this same woman usually
eats about twlco as muah as Is good fo
nny one, nnd could outdistances a Mara
thon runner. Truly none are so blind ag
thoso who will not see!
