WAYS OF WOMEN-PROBLEMS AFFECTING THE WORKING GIRL AND THE HOUSEHOLD
FROM A PRUDE'S NOTE BOOK
SAVERS FOR YOUR COAL BIN
By MRS. CHRI3TINE FREDERICK
"L kt 1 Llr " v!J ' " "' "...
S3 in work IS one
stenographer can possess. A bright and happy spirit can overcome many
difficulties, and is n pleasure to all those around. Too many girl workers
forget this fact. Not only do they allow the little tips and downs of business
life to worry them unduly, but they permit this to be clearly seen, and set
about their daily work with lugubrious countenances and a doleful manner
scarcely calculated to inspire sunshine in the hearts of their fellow workers.
1 he young stenographer should recollect that no business woman is free
from petty annoyances, from difficulties and from a wide variety of worries,
but although these arc more or less unavoidable, her attitude toward .them
depends entirety upon herself. The girl who has little grit and backbone may
allow her Worries and perplexities to wreck her happiness and her nerves
together. Nothing grows on one more than a melancholy altitude toward life.
Yet the wise girl will determine to face life snnnrelv nnrl in n snirit nf ntilimi.m
and the sunshine she sheds on those around will come back to her a hundred
fold. For, after all, life is what we make it. The world, loo. is a very
kind old world if we but face it in a spirit of optimism and determination
to get the best from life.

Qualities of the Successful
The business woman has cOmo to stay,
nnd justly so. Tcoplo realize that, llrst
of all. women have just as many brains
as men, and some of them have as much
business acumen. Only "some." of course.
It is this kind of woman who deserves
careful Btud,y; sho who by her own par
ticular merits deserves to be Included In
tho narrow "some."
She is tactful. This Is not easily de
scribed, although we nil know It when
we seu It. Tact Is Innate; It smoothes tho
rough path along which every one In
business must pass. The tactful woman
makes allow ances for Individual tempera
ments. She never rubs against her em
ployers by stubbornly opposing their
ideas. Sho gives every one the right to
his own personal conviction.
She is truthful. It sounds odd, no
doubt, but there are numerous women
who have no Idea what truthfulness In
business means. They will blame others
or their own mistakes, und cause a great
deal of unnecessary trouble.
Punctuality Is another virtue of the
successful business woman. Sho Is due
at S or 3; she arrives just at that hour,
in fair weather nnd foul. If she promises
to do a thing on a certain day, she does
It. Her bills nre met promptly and she
makes her employers feet that If she
gives her word, she Is going to keep it
at any cost.
The Runaway Monkey
THE little clay monkey who lived In
Mary's Japanese garden quite un
expectedly disappeared! He had been
missing a number of times before, but
Mary had always found him In the
water just below the tree In which
ho lived. He seemed to like to tumble
around and plunge Into the water.
Dut this time Mary couldn't nnd
She hunted on the pretty pink shells
that covered the bottom of the garden.
She searched In the Japanese pergola
which was her particular pride no
monkey was there. She looked In the
tiny boat, she looked again in the tree
to be sure he hadn't gone hack there
but In vain! No monkey was to be
"Maybe mother has seen him,"
thought Mary. "I'll ask her about It."
So she ran and found her mother.
"Mother, please conj,a and help me And
pty monkey; Tie's lost!"
. ".Lost! Your monkey lost!" exclaimed
monther. "He couldn't be, dear. Little
elajwmenkeys don't run away. I think

It is brown (o match her eyes and 1ms o

Her shoes take the attention of the
wandering ee immediately. They hap
bright, cheap, yellow tops, which only
serve to accentuate the fact that many
buttons have departed. Her clothes are
alwass slinbby looking, and only her
hands show the results of care.
Tlio unbiased observer would never
give this latter girl tho benefit of the
doubt If he was looking for Homo one to
do real work. And jet there Is no reason
why she shouldn't do just as well, It not
belter, than her red-headed companion.

A Stenographer's Problem
The girl who Is earning a good salary
sometimes has to pay foi It in unexpected
vvnjs. A glil stenographer writes:
Dear Kllcn Adair Will jou please ad
vise me on a certain point? I am In love
with a joung man In our office and 1 am
almost certain ho Is in love with me. But
my salarj Is almost loublo his, and he Is
very proud He has ficquently taken me
to theatres nnd concerts, and verj often
walks home with me fiom the office, If I
am working late but one evening I hap
pened to let him know what my salary
was, and from then onward he has
changed. Just latclj, he told me that no
self-respecting man would propose to a
girl who Ii earning moic than himself.
What shall I do? "UNHAPPV."
You were rather foolish to mention the
question oi samry, unnappj", as jou
probably led your friend to think that
jou nre mercenarj-. All that you can
now do Is so far as lies In jo"ur power,
to undeceive him In the matter. Main

things mnj- yet come right for j-ou.
Modes of the Hour
The public has not given very much
encouragement to the attempts of cer
tain modistes and corsctleres to reinstate
the hour-glass llgure. But, as many of
the new fashions require a normal waist
at the normal line, apparently the size
and the position of the waist must change
with the costume.
The bolero, or zouave, or Eton jacket,
Is explolnted by a number of afternoon
and house gowns, and is even the undtr
Ijlng motif of a variety of Jaunty little
It Is decidedly attractive In velvet or In
the cloth of the skirt, with a chiffon or
lace underblouse, If tho frock Is for
dressy occasions, or of sheer white mull
or muslin for the jouthful tdc everjday
It is a style that has an cBpeclal value
In tho way that it lends Itself to the mak
ing over of old frocks. The full skirts of
a few years back can be the full skirts
of the present. A little fancy Jacket and
a new blouse of some contrasting ma
terial to the jacket and skirt and, presto!
a new frock appears.
A bolero jacket does not mean, neces
sarllj, that the waist Is kept In the posi
tion originated by nature. The sash or
girdle may be tied either around the
waist or around the hips, gipsy style
a new coai, nowever, sucn as the one
sketched today, allows no legerdemain or
prestidigitation. It Is fitted to the figure
like a basque, and flares with the natural
curve of the hips.
The material Is broadoloth, of one of
the indeterminate shades to which the
names of prune and ralstn have been ap
plied. And the long-haired monkey fur
has been used for the collar and cuffs
because it appears to be particularly
suitable for the graceful lines of the
The skirt has an overdress that Is

There Is a certain eleganss to the
draped skirt that makes the circular or
round sftlrt look like an ingenue beside
a sephlstieated sister. It must be draped
by some one who is an artist to the
finger tips, or it is a failure.
If there were such, a thing as oqjisUU

belong, not to the frocks worn la the
morning or for shoppies' on the street,

like sudden emancipation from fettered

DO COLLEGE GIRLS
MAKE GOOD WIVES?
Three or four girls lounged carelessly
around the roora-'ln klmoncta. The pink,
blue ond r jiatt-colored gowns looked
charming against the college colors as a
background In the centre of tho room
a glil was bending over a steaming chaf
"Madge dear, where did you learn so
many household helps? You're a regular
little hausfrau! I never knew a girl could
combine real highbrow education with the
domestic virtues so effectively! Some
how, I always had the Idea that all
girls who were domestic were stupid,
and all clever girls were undomestlc."
"Which Is quite, quite true, my dear
j'oung person," answered the girl at the
window, i'l can't cook a boiled egg.
That's what makes me wear an old rose
kimono with red hair, and call my men
friends by -their last names. .It's genius,
I assure you."
"Oh. May, don't be so silly! We all
know you have executive ability enough
to run the White House! The man who
gets you will get intellect enough to keep
him guessing for Ilfel"
"Yes. my dear, he may get intellect
from May, but he'll also get Indigestion
from her cooking," laughed the girl nt
the table, peeking into the chafing dish

little western girl, "I'm no Gold Dust

they say that only B0, even JO per cent,

usually earns a man's salary. It she takes
