WHAT EVERY WOMAN WAStS TO ICNOW-TfflNGS
L;. THE BUSINESS GIRL
i'Ellen Adair Belicoes That a Determination lo Malic Good
' Is Essential.
cw 'Where there's n wltt, Micro's a way'
is particularly true In business life. The
girl who Is determined to succeed, and
. who possesses sUOlclent self-control and
ectf'dfinlal to suppress her own private
feelings and wishes Is on the high road
to success. She has learned life's hardest
lesson, and will progress onward and
r. upward to the best that lies before her.
"Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self
control," these three, "lead life to soj-
erelgn power." The business girl must
first of alt respect herself. The opinion

this private attitude, the attitude of
elf-reverence. Jn tho last nnntyats of

terlnt once we have passed this crucial
' personal tost.
Self-knowledge Is another leading fac
; tor In business euccess. To fully realize
i one's market value, to thoroughly gauge
the heights and depths of one's business
ability, to understand Just how much we
may or may not do Is essential. Not
j' until wo fully know ourselves are we
fMcd to Judge others.

rubbing. After this, waeh it In clear,

i Booth Tarklngton, In his book, "The
iFHrt," gives us a good, true-to-llfe
xstudy of the feminine flirt. Granted a
3 certain amount of good looks and per
gonal magnetism, and a very small
! "amount of brains, tho flirt starts out on
her social Journey. Men like her because
aha Is pretty and charming, and the
women are afraid of her. She soon be
comes that mysterious thing which, for
want of a better name, girls call "pop
ular." I But the flirt Is not satisfied with the
attentions of these men around her, she
wants more. So she starts a violent
JfUrtatlon with each one, taking care to
let him know how crazy his rival la
Snbout her. Those are the old time-worn
1 tactics of the flirt, to play one man
-against the other.
J Poor Bob determines to, cut the other
men alt out, and to ask this adorable
creature to marry him. Again your pro
fessional flirt betrays her tactics. She
never refuses an offer of marriage, for
that would mean losing the man, Sho
J "shies" him off Instead, smoothed down
hl ruffled brow and tells him she loves
'him as a sister. Thus ahe keeps the

A Beauty Chat
A great many growing girls are troubled
with pimples and bolls. This ruins their
good looks entirely, besides being very
painful. Bolls, especially, are very likely
to. come in a series, sometimes as many
as 10 and 12 In succession. They are often
duo to poisons In tho blood, which, when
they find no other outlet, break out on
the akin. A good many girls nowadays
stay Indoors too much nnd lack of exer
cise makes the blood Bluggish and likely
to retain poisons. Careful treatment uf
tho first boll will save you the pain of the
others, to say nothing of the doctor bills.
Never squeeze a boll. Put cotton ovor
It (taking care to have everything used
scrupulously clean) and let 'it come to a
head by Itself. Take every bit of cotton
with the pus on It nnd bum It as soon as
It has been removed. This Is because the
organisms which cause the boil may be
spread and more might follow. If It falls
to come to a. head, open It with a steril
ized" sharp knife.' To sterilize an object
properly, It should be put Into a flame,
or boiled In clean water for a minute
The system requires attention, too. A
good purgatlvo la necessary to purify tho
blood and carry off the poisons. Drink
plenty ot water a glaBs of hot water be
tween meals Is Very good. An ointment
made of 25 per cent Ichthyol and lanolin,
or any good ointment base may be used
to draw tho boll. Hot applications are
also good, lf a bit painful. The real ne
cessity ,1s to keep the system free from
poisons when once they have gone, and
to keep tho boil Itself entirely clean.
pretty face, but should he happen to be
vory much In earnest It Is a different
The way of the flirt after marriage is
hardest of all. Tho chain of habit Is
very difficult to break, and tho woman
who Is not naturally exclusive In her
affections doesn't change any too qulokly
after marriage. The long peries of trivial
affairs which stood In the place ot love
before marriage are going to be hard to
forget The first quarrel or cross word
will be enough to moke the flirt think
of her discarded conquests. Worst of all,
sho may make the mistake of reminding
her husband of them and there Is no man
who likes to hear himself compared, with
his rivals. If it Is only a passing in
fatuation or perhaps the lure of his
money which binds the flirt to her hus
band, the outcome Is very doubtful.
The man who knows he has married
a flirt, and few men do, until It is un
happily proved true, will worry himself
through distrust or suspicion of her.
Olria will try to be attractive the world
over and this la but natural and excus
able. Let them employ all the wiles of
the eternal feminine, If they choose, but
avoid getting the name of being a flirt
It Is a name that sticks and may cause
a serious misunderstanding some day.

THE JEALOUS WOMAN
Jealousy Is a despicable fault, but It
can be safely said that there la an aver
age of nine persona out of ten who pos
sess It. Keep your seats you probably
are not candid enough to admit it Or
perhaps the proper occasion has not ar
rived yet to bring It out, but It Is there.
Just the same. Jealousy Is as common
a falling to fallen mortals here below
aa grumbling about the weather or buy
ing tight shoes.
The tortures of Jealousy are not exag
geratedthey correspond In Intensity to

of time more, and you will cease to be
a fallen mortal and take 'your place
among the aflgels If you don't admit a
tiny, strange "scratchy" feeling.
A great many women are as Jealous ot
a man's work aa they are of his atten
tions. This may be foolish, since he
works to support her and she is only In
juring herself, but It Is easily explained.
Take the case of a wealthy woman who
married a doctor. She said herself, that
out ot the seven years that they had oc
cupied their magnificent home, he had
been at home with his family in the eve
ning Just six times! A woman cannot
heljo but feel a bit Jealous when her hus
band put business before her own in
terests. He gets the habit, no doubt, from
the struggles ot early married, life, when

future would bring them together. But

run Its course yet. Apparently the
dressmakers have not yet exhausted the
possibilities of combination.
The blue serge model, with sleeves and
underskirt of black satin, was the one
most frequently seen earlier In the sea
son. Now tho satin and serge are more
likely to match exactly, and the browns
and the RTcens outclass tho blues.
There Is talk, about It and about, of
the silhouette. There are the long,
straight lines of the Moyen Ago and
the rippling circular skirt and the. tight
fitting Jacket of Georgette, fraternizing
with n dlrectolre or an 1870 silhouette.
And there Is also a frock that can
not be classified by any ot these names
and can only be designated an charm
ing, which Is, after all, rather refresh
ing, like spring water after wine.
Such a one is sketched today. It la
made of tho fine twilled serge, dubbed
French, and the color Is tete de negro.

from which depends a panel slightly full,
reaches to the natural waist line, which

The bodice has a plain back, set In
sleeves, collars and cuffs of white silk
and a double vest that gives It distinc
tion. One Test, the upper one. Is made of
black and white checked silk, repeating
in Itself the note of white of the under
veet and collar and cuffs and the note
of black of the girdle.
This pulls the whole thing together,
aa tho artists say, and produces a har
monious effect that people often get
without the process of analysis.
means to be unkind, but he commits an
unconscious oruetty when he thinks his
wife can get along without his attentions.
The unreasonably Jealous woman, ot
course. Is an entirely different type. This
Is an actual mental mania. Just like delu
sions of different kinds that weak-minded
persons often have. A woman who Is
acutely jealous tortures herself nnd alt
about her. But undoubtedly she Is the
more to be pitied. Her mind never knows
a rest, ahe la a victim of doubts and sus
picions ctf all kinds from which ahe can
never escape, exoept by an extraordinary
amount of eelf-oontrol. And this klnd'of
woman seldom hss any self-control.
It la so easy to have flowers In the
house all winter that it seems too bad
not to try the experiment. Flowers which
grow from bulba hyacinths. Narcissus,
daffodils, freaslaa, tulips, eto can be
forced to bloom all winter long. An In
valid will enjoy watching these little
plants, and old people or children as
well will keep their minds and Angers
busy tending to them. The process is
simplicity Itself, and once you have had
flowers In your home you will never be
satisfied to be without them.
Buy several bulb pans made either of
earthenware r lino to flt your Jardl
nieers or fm dishes. Plant a bulb in
each pan, and cover with light sell,
mixed with sand, Tou can tide several
plants in a pan, too, but keep them the
same variety ot bulb, and they will grew
better. Water them thoroughly, and put
them In a cold, dark cellar. Cover them
with something which will keep all the
light away from them. Leave them here,
with a little watering try two weeks,
nntll the roots have fowned themselves.
The time varies with "the bulbs used.
Now bring them up to a funny room, and
they will bloom in three or f ur weeks.
They stay In blossom about tea days,

"FIRST AID" IN THE KITCHEN
Remedies for the Every-day Accidents of Burning, Scald
ing and Cuts.
The busy housekeeper should remember
how to treat the ordinary wounds ac
quired about the kitchen. So many thlngt
are liable to occur the cook may scald
herself or somo one else with boiling
grease children may cut themselves
handling knives and things when mother
Isn't looking, eto. There are so many
closs-at-hand remedies which can be ap
plied Immediately If mother only knew
of them. These remedies are just as
good as the doctor can give, because doc
tors have used them for years, and you
would have to pay to And them out
Bums and scalds should be bathed in a
salt solution. Use one teaspoonful of salt
to a pint of water, and keep on as long
aa you can. Borlo ointment Is another
thing whloh la usually to be found In
tvery medicine chest It Is only dry
borado acid with lanoll- and hastens
the healing process. A little butter spread
quickly over a scald as soon as It oc
curs, if possible, will take the sting
The best treatment for a cut which la
only a flesh wound Is to let It stop bleed
ing by Itself, and t- keep It cletn. Of
course, one near a large vein may be
more serious, and th places above and
below It should be tied with a cord of
some kind, until the doctor arrives. The
ordinary cut should be bathed In salt
solution In tho proportion given be
fore, and tied In clean gauze. Tho first
Inclination of a person who has a finger
cut Is to wrap It up In his handkerchief.
Unless this Is a perfectly fresh one. this
Is a very bad thing to do. The ordinary
handkerchief carries germs from the pock
et, nose discharge and hands. If these
get' Into the cut, a serious Infection is
rrr likely to follow. People make fun
ot the precaution taken against germ
contagion these days, but it is only in
the future that they will proptrly under
stand how easy It Is to contract illness
from the most trivial, thing.
Never use carbolic acid, no matter how
weak the solution, on a cut or hum. It

Protector for Kitchen Sink
Every housewife who has had the
trouble of cleaning out her kitchen sink,
after a half hour or more spent in dish
washing, will appreciate tho new sink
protecting dish pan.
It la made of what Is called "copflor
bcarlng tin plate," a new arrival In tho
metal world. The steel under the tin
coating has copper amalgamated wlth.lt,
making tho finished tin plate practically
rust proof. Tho pan fits snugly Into the
Bin!:, without moving at all while the
dishes nro being washed In It. The great
advantage of this Is that tho water will
not be spilled around, cither.
Two very good Innovations further odd
to the efficiency of this pan. It has an
outlet In tho centre as In a bathtub or
washstand, and under this is a llttlo
strainer drawer of rustless mesh. This
Is to catch all heavy greases or particles
from the dish water. It removes the un
fortunate scraping process; you Blmply
pull out the little drawer, empty nnd
clean It. Tour lovely porcelain sink
can't bo marred by this pari, ns'with the
ordinary dlshpan, for it has rubber le.Es
which protect the sink.
Tho pans come in two sizes, the fam
ily size, 13x19 Inches, and the apartment
house size, measuring 11x17 Inches. .Both

sanitary manner and with proper care
will last Indefinitely.
Phenol Sodlque, eta), which are equally
dangerous. Berlus cases of gangrene
have resulted from the Injudicious use of
carbolic acid nnd Its compounds. A cut
will heal naturally as quickly na It can,
with clean gauze to proteot It, and fre
quent washing In salt or boric acid solu
tion. If You Would Avoid
The Winter Cold
Now is the time to guard against It,
The long epidemic we had last year of
grippe was a proof nf how contagious
colds are. A headache or sore throat fol
lows and soon a full-fledged case of grippe
or conjunctivitis follows.
The new tailored Buits with the fur collar
buttoned tightly around the neck are very
dangerous for the throat. Women wear
these one day and a low collar the next.
The result Is .a soreness about the throat
or a slight cold. This will develop very
rapidly, according to the amount of re
sistance the person herself has.
The same thing might be said of un
derclothing. The unusually long stretch
of autumn weather this year has kept
many women from getting out their wool
ens. But remember that when yon do put
them on, you must keep them on. Changs
fhg with every warm spell Is very bad for

crocheted Jackets come In every style.
Most of them are wlthqutpleeyes and can
be worn Inside your coat and not be no
ticed. They may look a little bit old
fashioned, but they certainly are a good
thing for this season of the year. A cold
contracted now may last all winter. They
are a continuous drain on the system, and
If you can possibly avoid them it U wise
to take precautions.
