WOMAN AND THE' HOME-PRIZES OFFERED FOR ORIGINAL IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS
The Woman Whom Everybody Likes
Ths desire to bo popular U an Instinct
deeply rooted In the heart of the average
woman. Of course, there are exceptions
to tho rule. A certain type of foolish
woman considers It rather an honor to be
disliked by her own sex. She considers
that such dislike Is founded on Jealousy,
and that Jealousy on the part of othet
women towards herself Is the highest trib
ute to her own powers of fascination and
general charm. Her ambition Is to gain
ureat popularity with the men and let
the women hate her as much as possible.
This is exceedingly foolish and Ill-advised)
as sooner or later she will find out.
For no woman can afford to do without
tho friendship of her own sex. Social
neglect will follow, and sho will And too

tho right way Is taken. And It is so glo

to the real popularity and not to Us tran

The basic quality on which popularity
Id built Is kindliness towards the feelings
The woman who has a very kindly heart
and a ready sympathy for everybody with
whom she comes In contact has solved the
hardest part of the problem of popularity,
and Indeed has tho root of the matter
In her. For klndners and sympathy are
essentials to popularity.
"Assumo a vlrtuo If you havo It not,"
goes tho old saying. But such assump
tion deceives nobody. Trio outward and
visible signs of a sympathetic disposition
can be assumed, but unless the ri)al feel
ing is behind them, people will soon de
tect the lack, no matter how gushing and
how generous the popularity-seeker may
be. And so the woman who aspires to
popularity must endeavor to make tho
virtue of sympathy a real part of her
nelf. She must literally 'xeel sorry for
the sufferings of others, and what is
sometimes, harder, she must rejoice with
Her reward will come to her, not only

MISS KATZEN STEIN At HOME
You would never think that a little
woman who could present tho cause of
suffrage with such telling emphasis in
jiubllo would be bo demure and domestic
nt home. Miss Caroline Katzenstein, pri
vate secretary of the Equal Franchise
Zeague is the living proof of the state
meant that a suffragist can be ardent for
the cause and still be an exponent of the
"One of my hobbles is plain sewing,"
he said, as she took up, her work; "you
know I used to teach' sewing at , the
Southwark Neighborhood House. I started
to do settlement work when I first came
to Philadelphia. I am a believer In re
form in dress, anyhow."
"Do you advocate the ldea.of a uniform
dress for women, or anything like that?"
"Oh, no. I advocate simplicity of lines
and beauty of materials, that's all. I
think women waste a great deal of money
and time following extreme styles, which
only make them look ridiculous in the
end. Besides, I don't see any reason why
wa should change our styles every montl
or so. If I buy a gown which I consider
pretty In January, why Bhould I bt
ashamed to wear It in a couple of month;
from now? And, yet. most women an
ashamed to wear a dress which was be
coming Just a short time before. Now,
mind, I'm not aspiring to adopt trousers,
or anything of the kind. People always
associate such ideas with suffragists."
"How do you take your recreation after
office hours are you a 'movie' fiend?"
"No, I'"n a physical culture fiend," she
answered, laughingly, "I put In three
nights a week with a class where we do
everything you can imagine. I was al
ways Interested In this, and had a regu
lar little gymnasium In my home in South
Carolina. There I used to exercise an
hour every morning before breakfast"
"What do you do at your class in the
"Almost anything, "We play soccer,
hurdle, swing Indian clubs, use dumb
bells, climb ropes, and do floor and tra
peze work, for some of the things. And
that isn't all, by any means."
"How did you like settlement work?"
"I loved It. I taught a class of 'little
mothers in the settlement it was sup
posed to be for an hour In the after
noon, but it usually lasted until evening.
I have had plenty of experience as a
teacher. I taught Sunday school for the
Ethical society, too. No, this Isn't how
I got interested In suffrage work. The
truth Is, I never remember the time when
I became a convert to suffrage. Aa long
M I can remember I believed In It.

broadened outlook nnd interest In llfo.
For the popular woman hoe learned to
study human nature In its varying
phases, than which there Is no more
Interesting hobby under tho sun.
Tho "superior" woman and the bnse
woman wilt never be popular. It Is small
recommendation to go about the world
with one's nose In the air, and one's el
bows out sharply, ready to Jostle tho
feelings of others at ovcry turn. An as
sumption of Indifference to the things
about you la not an indication of Intel
ligence. Upon the contrary, Intelligent
people are thoso who ore wldo-awnke,
enthusiastic and eager for life. They
are Interested in everything, down to tho
tittle trifles and happenings of dally llfo.
To take a lively Interest In people nnd
their affairs does not by any means Imply
a gossiping or a prylns disposition. The
gossip Is the person who unearths skele
tons from the cupboalu for tho solo pur
poso of parading them around tho neigh
borhood. But tho popular person gains
her popularity by novor repeating un
unkind or uncharitable story. Sho Is u
model of discretion.
The very busy woman has a harder
time to gain popularity than the woman
of leisure For popularity literally takes
time. Ono muet listen patiently to others
without cutting them short or interrupt
ing, and one must show no boredom
It Is easier in ono senso for a woman
to gain popularity with men than with
other women. Less qualifications are re
quired, "fhe pretty woman who has an
outwardly attractive appearance and n
pleasing manner will acqulro popularity
with men easily. But to be popular with
other women she must call moro qual
ities, more forces, more energies Into
play. AVomen are Infinitely moro critical
of women than aro men. We all ad
mit that. But the woman who wishes
to be truly popular, a term which implies
tho liking and the commendation of other '
women, must be sympathetic, kindly,
charitable, intelligent enough to bo amus
ing and interesting, and must not be a
mischief maker. Sho must be genuinely
Interested In all their little affairs, and
must be considerate of their feelings.
Above all, she must not flaunt her mas
culine conquests in their faces.
The art of popularity can be culti
vated, nnd for every woman under tho
eun it Is worth while, for It brings a
senso of peace and harmony into one's
life, and to know that ono 1b truly liked
by one's neighbors makes this old world
turn merrily nnd brightly.
MISS CAROLINE KATZENSTEIN
will tend toward lessening household
labor for women. I mean such Inven
tions as the vacuum cleaner, the electrto
Iron, washtub and all those things. The
reason I am Interested in these things Is
because I think they remove the obstacles
to progress and allow women more time
for Intellectual pursuits. Now, I wouldn't
do away with the home cooking and the
pies that mother used to make for any
thing. But I think that there are a great
many purely mechanical Jobs which can
be done Just' aa well, and better, by me
"However, I think the home will al
ways be sacred and personal, and I
wouldn't have It interfered with for anything."

CHAPTER XXIII (Continued)
For a few moments there was silence.
Then Russell sold: "I suppose, .Murray,
there can be no Inquest over here?"
"No, the matter Is entirely out of our
hands. Tho Spanish authorities alone
have the power to deal with the matter."
"That is a a pity," Bald Lord Arthur.
"Well, my lord, the cause of death was
"Yes but the affair leading up to It
the kidnapping of my nophow. That re
quires investigation; that must be sifted
to the bottom."
"Mr. Richard Merlet Is dead, my lord."
"Yes, but others are under suspicion,
Mr, Vertigan, for Instance."
Mr. Murray stroked his chin thought
fully. "It seems pretty certain, my lord," he
said after a pause, "that Doctor Ander
son and his accomplice were the people
who took Lord Wlmberley from Harptree,
and that the Merlet-ang you'll pardon
me using your honorable name In such a
connection attacked the Anderson lot and
took the boy away from them. Still,
whatever tho wording of the advertise
ment, I take it, my lord, that there will
be no difficulty made about the payment
of the money,"
"Ten thousand pounds," said Lord
Arthur In a hard, oven voice "for evi
dence that will bring one of the criminals
to Justice, and if there are two, twenty
thousand pounds, and if there are three,
thirty thousand pounds. I would not have
ono of them escape not one."
"And you will go out to Spain tonight,
my lord?" r
"Yes, and I should like you to como

from there. Wo shall have to work back

down to Harptreo together. Now about
these" and ho glanced at the articles on
"I will leave his young lordship's things
here," said Mr. Murray; "tho others I will
tako back with me."
Lord Arthur left the room and the de
tective replaced Dick Merlot's belongings
In tho brown bag.
"Bears it pretty well, doesn't he?" eaid
"Yes, but he's that sort. Hard as
"Any chanco of earning tho reward, do
"But not for us, oh?"
"You havo as good a chance aa any one

You're on the spot," '
"Wouldn't like to make on arrangement
to divide whatever happens?"
"I might we'll talk It over when I come
back from Spain."
"Do you think Vertigan Is in It7"
Ten minutes later Lord Arthur re
entered tho room. "I'm ready," ho said,
"if you are."
They took their scats in tho motorcar
and the footman placed two trunks on tho
roof. Then tho car gilded nway into tho
"If this motorcar could only speak,"
said Mr. Murray, "It co-.ild tell us a
"YeB, indeed," said Russell. "Upon my
word, with so many clues there ought to
be no difficulty."
Lord Arthur leaned forward and began
to rend some papers ho had taken from
his pocket The car was brilliantly lighted
and had a small table on which he rested
"One thing we havo to be thankful for,
my lord," said Russell after a pause, "and
that is tho death of this scoundrel. If he'd
lived he'd havo had a try at your lord
ship." Lord Arthur looked at tho spenker cold
ly and then resumed tho.rco.dlng of tho
papers." A moment later there was a sharp
crack ns though some one had struck the
window with a small pebble, Murray
mado a quick movement of his hand, and
tho interior of the car was In darkness.
"What's tho matter?" queried Lord Ar
thur sharply. "What are you doing, Mr.
Murray? Turn on the light again."
"Not Just yet, my lord If you don't
mind. We don't want another bullet

"Bullet?" queried Russell and Lord Ar

"Why don't you stop the enr?" said
Lord Arthur angrily, and he groped in
tho darkness for the speaking tube.
"Not Just yet, my lord, If you don't
mind. AVe can't do anything. That was a
bullet from a rifle, and we don't want
another. It might find ita mark. We'll
run straight on down into Harptree."
"You must be mad. Do you mean to
say we're to take no notice Just go on as
If nothing had happened?"
"That's what I do mean, my lord. The
fellow doubtless relied on our stopping.
Then he could have got a clear shot at
you. Besides, there is no time to be lost,"
"The train doesn't matter. Look here,

"Mr. Vertigan does not know, my lord.

Russell went thero with tho news."
"Well, It's a rum Job don't you think
wo might havo the light?"
Tho detective switched on tho electric
light again nnd Lord Arthur examined the
holes In tho windows. Tho glass had
Btarrcd slightly round them, but the holes
woro as clean as if thoy hod been cut In a
slico of cheese.
"Ono of thoso now rifles," he said
"very high velocity. I've got a rifle my

queried tho detective.
"Oh, In my rooms In town. I should

somo idea of shooting. Wo .were going
thirty miles an hour, and ho must have
been somo way on, for I heard no report."
"Accident, do you think, my lord?"
queried tho Inspector.
"H'm, hardly. Folk don't go about fir

you'd let mo stop tho car, Mr. Murray. I
don't see how wo are to get any clues
"I know tho place," said Murray rather
curtly. "I could toll you to within a yard
or two where wo were when tho bullet
struck the window."
"I don't even know which side It was
fired from," said tho inspector.
Lord Arthur examined tho two holes,
"It was fired from our left," he said
"from tho direction of tho river."
"Yes," said Mr. Murray. "I know that
Tho hole on tho right Is slightly nearer
tho top of tho window. Tho ground slopes
down to the left Is that how you. argued

"No." said Lord Arthur rather con

"No," said Murray sharply. "Vertl

Lord Arthur put his mouth to the
speaking tubo and gave the chauffeur the
address. A fow minutes later tho car
drew up outside the house.
"Who's to go in," queried Lord Ar
thur, "and what excuse Is to b? made
for calling at this hour?"
"You can leave that to me, my lord,"
said the detective, with a smile. He
picked up his bag, alighted from the car
ar.d knocked at the door of the house. It
was opened by an elderly woman In
"Mr. Vertigan In?" queried Murray,
"Yes, sir; what name shall I say?"
The detective gave the woman his card
and a minute later was shown upstairs
to a room on the first floor, Vertigan
was lying on a sofa in front of the Are.
Ho showed no surprise as Murray en
tered the room, but rose to his feet with

,N a bright sunny day in lato autumn,
two gray beetles met In a back yard
"Good afternoon, my friend," said the
greenest beetle; "do you think it is time
Mr. Yellow Beetle laughed. "I should
say I do think It Is time!" he replied.
"Surely you are not so stupid that you
let this fine warm weather fool you I I
thought better of you than that!"
("But I am having such a good time Just

"I don't like to take time to get ready

he went on about his own business.
For some tlmo the green beetle played
about as beforo, but he couldn't quite
