In spile of nil the wordy exhortations
of the wise, and pjetlcal assurances ns
to It's being "only noble to be good"
human nature Is such that snobbishness,
lllto the poor, Is alwnja with us.
Kind hearts may bo more than coronets,
and simple faith may excel the power of
heredity, but, unfortunately, It Is hard to
convince a certain typo of pcison that
uch should be the case,
The. snobbish woman Is a trying Indi
vidual. No, sho Isn't necessarily unkind
of heart upon the contrary, sho Is over
flowing with kindness but the flow Is di
rected to those whom sho considers as
ranking above her socially.
I know a vory worthy and oxcellent
English woman who Is completely spoiled
by this falling. Sho is bright, Intelligent,
exceedingly Interesting and a brilliant
conversationalist Hut her "bon mots"
are so Interlanlod with airy lefcrences
to the notables with whom she appears to

only succeeds In being a thorough bore.
"My great friend, Lady Blank of
Blankshlro, said to mo yesterday" she

of So-and-So. Delightful people and

thought that everybody who counted
knew tho so-and-So's! Very strange!"

Inane such snobbery really Is, they would
There Is nnother typo of snobbery al
most as stupid. It Is the snobbery Of
those who think that money Is the only
thing fhat matters. This Is found In all
ranks of life, In all degrees of society.
Mrs. Smith will not know Mrs. Jones bo
causo Mrs. Smith's houso boasts of three
sitting rooms, while Mrs. Joncn only hns
two. Mrs. Brown will not nssoclate with
Mrs. Green, becauso Mrs. Green cannot
afford to go away to the seaside for tho
summer, whllo the triumphant nnd
haughty Mrs. Brown owns a country

Tea, It Is foolish and absurd. But such
trifles cause real heart-burning nmong
women. Men, too, aro Influenced by snob
bery, but not so much In tho trifles of
domestic life as in tho big things. "What
other people will say!" Is the bugbear of
many a home. It is truly pathetic to

Many a man works lllto a. slave to main
tain a home, tho keeping of which is far
above his means. How much happier ho
would bo were ho to haul down Ills flag
cf snobbery nnd live comfortably in a
quieter way and well within his Income.
It is a truo saying that snobbery never
did bring happiness.

By MRS. CHRISTINE FREDERICK
Author "New Housekeeping"
One of the llvcst organizations working
for betterment of home conditions re
cently held a demonstration at which a
steer was cut up by competent butchers.
This Is certainly moro than ono step In
the right direction toward moro knowl
edge ond understanding by tho house
wife about the kind of cuts she Is order
ing. Let there be more of theso prac
tical visual lessons In meat anatomy.
I do not expect every woman by any
means to be able to distinguish a flank
steak lying on the counter from a thin
slice of round. But I do expect every
woman who calls herself a homemaker
to be able to do so. Any woman who
occupies the position of mnnager nnd
buyer of the homo commissariat must
know details of tho different cuts of
meat. How elso can sho bo sure of what
Bhe Is getting, of whether this particular
cut can be cooked In a particular man
ner nnd the relative nutritive value of ono
cut over another?
In agricultural colleges tho cutting up
of meat Is made a special study, demon
strated alike to both men and women
students, though with different ends in
view. A good butcher Is willing to tell his
customers considerable about tho various
cuts. Many books have been written
with diagrams showing tho different sec
tions into which a steer, sheep, hog, etc.,
are cut One of tho best of the3o Is tho
"Marketing Guide," by Miss Farloa, Dana
Hstes & Co., Boston. This gives detailed
help, not only about the various cuts of
meat, but about the seasons when various
vegetables, flsh, etc., are In their prime.
From Whltcomb & Barrows, Boston, can
be purchased for Jl four celluloid charts
showing how the various meats are cut
up. There are, In general, three different
methods or styles of cutting the Now
York, the Boston and the Philadelphia.
sometimes the Boston methods are called
New England outs. There are also slight
variations In the way the meat Is cut
by Western butchers, but these variations
are slight, and once a woman haa grasped
the estmplo general plan of cutting, It Is
not difficult to see where each section
In my opinion, the best way to grasp
the subject thoroughly Is to sit down for
an hpur with a good book or chart, pad
and pencil and learn theoretically how
the animal Is divided. This Bhould be at
once supplemented by an actual demon
stration, such as was given the other
day, so that the book Information and
the concrete animal will dovetail, as It
were, anil the woman receive a clear Idea
of each cut and where it comes from.
The young bride who refused to take
a small section of loin chops, beoause
ehe declared "that chops did not grow
In bunches," Is not entirely the whlmsey
of a cartoonist. We are all too much
habituated to ask for porterhouse, rib
roast and tenderloin. The great area of
lesser-known cuts the brisket, the plate,
the flank, the shoulder chuck and a host
more are unknown quantities to the aver
age housewife of means. From her point
of view the animal's entire anatomy Is
made up of chops and steak. She Is al
most like the family, each one of whom
wished a leg from the chicken their
father was carving, until their father, dis
gusted Anally, laid down his fork and
asked, "Do you think I am carving a

The door opened, and a footman en
tered tho room with a note on a salve-.
Lady Wlmberlcy glanced nt the writings
on tho envelope, nnd tho color rusheU
Into her face. Tho letter was from John
"Is any ono waiting for an answer?"
Lady Wlmberley queried.
"Yes, my lady Mr. Erloigh 1h waiting.
I showed him Into tho library"
She controlled herself admirably In tho
presence of tho servant. Sho opened the
envelope, which only contained the words:
"Please do not rofuso to see me," nnd,
rising from her seat, threw the plcco
of paper into tho Are.
"Tell Mr. Krlelgh I will be with him in
a minute," she said to tho footman. Ho
left the room and Lady Wlmberlcy turned
to her daughter.
"Joan, dear," sho said, "wo will con
tinue our talk lator on. You know, my
darling, that I want you to be happy."
Joan threw her arms round her mother's
neck and kissed her. 'Mother, dear." sho
whispered, "I want you to be happy. Oh,
pleaso do not refuse happiness. If It Is
offered to you for my eake."
"H'sh, Joan, dear you must not get
Into your head that that I shall over
"Mother, you will oh, mother, dear,
all this has been breaking my heart. You
must not shut all the sunshlno out of
your life. Surely, mother dear, when
one Is wretched and in trouble, one turns
to those ono loves."
"God bless you, Joan, dear," said Lady
Wlmberley, In a low voice. Then she
kissed her daughter again and loft tho
room. There was grey twilight In tho
library as she entered It. John Erlelgh,
dressed in black, was scarcely visible
against the dark rows of books. He came
forward and held out his hand She
took It, and he held her Angers for a few
seconds before ho let go of them.
"I hope you aro not angry with me for
coming to see you. lie said gently.
"But I felt that I must come."
"I I am glad to see you again," she
answered mechanically "Wo only got
back last week and I'm very glad to be
"I I hoped you would be glad. Have
you any news of your brother-in-law?"
"We had a letter about a. month ago
he Is not coming home until the end of
the year, possibly later."
"Was he well when he wrote?"
"Oh, yes, quite well."
They talked In this strain for five min
utes, trying, as It were, to pick up the
threads ofi year ago, and Join those
that had been broken. Lady Wlmberley
asked him about the school.
"It Is going on splendidly," he replied.
"We have all been working very hard
boys and masters to to pull It together,"
There was silence for pearly a minute.
Lady Wlmberley switched on ono or two
shaded electric lamps. Then she seated
herself In a chair by the Are. Erlelgh
"I I have come here to explain," he
said abruptly. "When I wrote you that
letter I was too great a coward to ex
plain. You you must have thought me
a brute, Anne, to write to you like that,
when you were In such sorrow so much
In need of a friend."
She did not reply. Her hands were
clasped on her knees, and she stared at
"I ought to have explained," he went
on "I ought to have told you that I
was not a free agent In the matter.
Your brother-in-law should have told you
that he had forced me to break, off our

rim&w " w
"Arthur forced you to to write that
letter?" sho faltered.
"Yes It was either that or or ruin for
myself and the school It did not matter
about mysolf, but I decided I had no
right to sacrifice tho scnool."
"So you sacrificed mb?" sho said with
a queer smile.
"No, Anne no-It yon had written to
mo differently, if you had shown tho
slightest desire to keep mo to my word,
I think I would ha flung everything to
tho winds, I would havo como to you,
ns I have como now today, and told you
everything. But you did not write like
"I wrote what I believed to be true.

Then John Erlelgh seated himself on a
chair close to the woman he loved, so
close that he had only to strctcli out his
hand to touch her. 1
"Anne." he said hoarsely, "you you
havo told mo what I want to know,
what I havo wanted to know nil theso
months; Anne, you still care for mc;
your lovo Is not all for the dead?"
Sho did not answer his question, but
the grip ot her hands tightened on her
"Anne," ho went on, "perhnpi I havo
made a dlstake. It Is difficult for a man
to understand the working of a woman's
brain. If I havo made a mistake pleaso

there Is no need for mo to tell you
"I think. Jack," she said quietly, "mat
you will have to explain about Arthur;
but Btill I cannot force you to tell mo
anything, can I?"
IIo leant toward her and laid his hand
on her nrm.
"Anne," ho said gently, "I want to
throw myself on your mercy, so I must
tell you everything. Anne, dear, I do not
want to hear you say that you lovo mo
until you have hoard all I havo to tell
you. If you can say It then "
Ho paused, leant back In his chair and
looked at her, and then, ns sho said
nothing, he rested his elbow on his knees
and stared at tho Are.
"I was to blame," he began aftor a few
moments of sllenco. "Your brother-in-law
told mo that Vertlgan was a friend
of Dick Merlet's and wanted me to dis
miss Vertlgan. I refused, because there
was no actual evidence that the man
was Intending to harm Guy. There were
only suspicions, nnd Vertlgan was a good
master, and I did not think It right to
got rid of him. Besides, I should havo
had to explain to the governors of tho
school, andT perhaps, there would have
been an action for libel."
"Was that all?" Lady Wlmberley
queried after a pause. "It Is not much.
Why, even now there Is no evidence
against Mr. Vertlgan."
"That wan not all. My slater they
seemed to think my sister was njlxed
up In "
"Your sister. Jack Mrs, Travera?"
"Yes; she, too, was a friend ot Dick
Merlet's. I will tell you nil that is
known that I know against her."
He marshalled the evidence clearly and
concisely and as calmly as a Judge sum
ming up before a Jury. But the one fact
that told him his sister was guilty, tho
one fact that was based on something
mora than suspicion he had still to keep
to himself. He could say nothing ot how
Mrs. Travera had been forced to keep

hjm, Lord Arthur Merlet had known
nothing ot thlsslt was not one of the
reasons why LordNrthur had forced him
to break off the engagement to Lady
"So the position was this, Anne," he
said In conclusion. "Your brother-in-law
said that unless I broke oft the engage
ment he would tell you all that I have
Just told you, and not only tell It to you,
but publish It to the world."
For halt a minute thero was silence,
and Lady Wlmberley, curiously enough,
found herself thinking, not of herself, but
of her daughter, In love with the son of
this vile woman,
"If," eald Erlelgh abruptly, "I'd thought
that Grace had had anything anything
at all to do with with the kidnapping
of poor Guy, I would not have spared her
But I am sure she had nothing to do with
"How do you know that?" said Lady
Wlmberley In a dull, even voice. She
was still think of Joan and of the young
