MOST POPULAR SIN.
When Dr. Anna Howard Shaw was
asked by a New York preacher the
other day to name what she consid
ered to be "the most popular sin," she
did not hesitate to name selfishness,
..which, in her opinion, is the root of
al! evil. The minister in question
afked a number of prominent folk
their answer to this question and
among the answers were "envy, "ex
travagance," and "living beyond one's
income.' From a Y. M. C. A. worker,
who qualicfid his answer as pertaining
especially to conditions in New York,
came the answer "the cheap cry for

Mrs. W. M. Stoner Will Start Votes for Women Campaign
in Mining Towns of West Virginia, Where Suffrage Argu
ments Have Never Been Heard Before.
Mrs. Wesley Martin Stonfr. of this
city, organizer and president of the Kate
Gordon Ch.ipter of the Southern States
Woman's Suffrage Conference, and a
prominent member of the College Equal
Suffrage League, will leae town next
Sunday for White Sulphur Springs, where
she will open up a campaign for rotes for
women through the southern part of
West Viiginia. Her work will begin in
the aristocratic hotels of one of the
country's most famous pleasure resorts,
but the ntxt 5tops on the list will be
backwoods mining towns, where suffrage
is almost unheard of. But Mrs. Stoner
knows her ptople. She knows the South,
and she is as able to plead for her cause
In the drawing-loom of a fashionable
hotel as in some rude mining shack.
Mrs. Stoner made her flrst suffrage
speech in Pensacola. Fla.. In the audi
torium of one of the largest hotels. She
wasn't 'stumping" at the time: in fact.
she didn't know she had the makings of
a speaker, but. urged b her friends and ,
spurred by the presence of a few op
ponents of the "cjuse" of votes for
women, she consented. Pensacola was
delighted. They had expected to hear an
argument, a debate; and Instead they
heard one of the most striking, humorous
and interesting speeches that had ever
been given In the town. And, of course
they, were converted to the "cause." And,
what surprised Pensacola more than any
thing else, was that, the clever speaker
looked "like a lady w:ho had Just stepped
out of a drawing-room." and not at all
like a "real suffragette."
Later Mrs. Stoner spoke for'the "cause"
in St. Augustine and in. Tampa, in
Florida, In Rome and Macon, Georgia, in
Columbia and Spartansburg. South Caro

carefully from the ground, with as

In slipping the ordinary geranium,
cut the young shoot on a slanting

Keep the young slip moist and away

RAINY DAY WISDOM.
Rainy day wisdom consists flrst in
realizing that a rainy day does not
necessarily mean an airless day. Every
man. woman and child should get as
much air as possible even when the
rain Jails. Babies, of course, must be
kept indoors or on a very thoroughly
sheltered porch when it rains. But
children, as soon as they know
enough to do what they are told to
do, should be dressed for rain and
allowed to go out of doors in it
In a beating, driving rain they
should be dressed In rubbers and pro
tecting coats, hoods or caps that eover
their heads, and taught to walk up
ana down a porch or piazza very lit
tie children. By telling them 40 pre-
tena mat mey are soiaiers, wno must
make a journey in the rain up and
down the piazza ten times or fifteen,
their exercise will become play.
Older children, dressed lightly, but
warmly and In waterproof clothes,
should be sent out-of-doors every
rainy day. For little girls, the rain
proof capes with attached hoods are
best and for small boys long water
proof coats and caps that can be
pulled down over their ears can be
Rainy-day clothes ought to be kept
neat and In order. One reason why
so many women dread walking in the
rain is because they have not suit
able clothes and another is because
their rainy-day clothes are always
wrinkled and unattractive looking.
Always dry umbrellas open and then
roll them snugly, strap them and
sheath them with their cases.
Tp mend an umbrella take a small
piece of black sticking plaster and
soak it in water until quite soft. Place
this carefully under the hole Inside
and let dry. This will be found to
be better than darning, as It closes
the hole neatly without stitches.
Tan raincoats show every spot of
mud. Here Is the way to clean them.
Use automobile soap, which can be
bought at an automobile supply store,
and with a lather made of It clean
the coat, a little at a time, rinsing
off the lather as soon as the dirt Is
removed. Hang on a hanger to dry.

Bob Hale's head was so full ot pain
that in his delirium he was afraid It
would burst and scatter his brains over
the snowy uniform of his nurse. That
would have been dreadful, for not or
worlds would he have anything happen
to the dainty. Immaculate bit of fem
ininity who was taking care of him.
One other thing worried him besides
his head. It was the diamond ring his
nurse wore on her left hand. To his dis

in the, way. If she would only put It on
the other hand It wouldn't bother him
Day after day, while the fever lasted.

the fever broke, but although the pain
disappeared from his head: the ring ana
all it Implied remained to torture him.
A new pain had developed around the
region of his heart.
Won't you tell me who the lucky man
Is?" he asked -one day as he lay back
weakly among his pillows watching her
make out a report for' the doctor.
What do you mean 7" -she asked, look-
ipg' up startled from her writing. Then,
seeing his eyes on her hand, she colored.
"Not not now," she faltered. "Some
day, perhaps. Don't you think ypu had
better have your nap now, Mr. Hale?"
Bob pretended to sleep, hut the pain in
his heart got worse and interfered with
his rest Why bad the hospital sent Vio

be engaged to somebody else? It wasn't
fair to a poor. sick, defenseless man to
have this avalanche of beauty and sweet
necs descend upon him and then to dis
cover that she belonged to another.
Bob got better. And Violet, one dreary
day, exchanged her white uniform for a
blue broadcloth suit and departed, tak
ing with her all that life held dear for
. For weeks Bob thought of every excuso
under the sun to see her. But he always
gave up in despair. There was no hon-
-trrable way he'could think of. Besides,'
what was the use when she was not, ana
never could be. for him?
One day he lost a collie pup, and, look

"Eureka. I have found It!" ex
claimed Bob, meaning, of course,
neither the ring nor the dog, but an
excuse to see once more the only girl
he could ever care for. ,
The plan that presented Itself so
suddenly was this: t;o try to find the
ring. At least to intercept mo unuer.
ground, not daring to miss an Inch of
the trail. After going four blocks he
stopped in front of an old house set
well back among the trees. It was
the Larlmar house, he knew. No use
going farther. He crossed the street
and went back the four blocks to the
car line on the other side. No diamond
ring happened to be lying on the side
walk waiting to be picked up! Back
again to the house.
He slipped through the street gate
set In a high privet hedge. Just In
side was a clump of hydrangeas on a
level with his head. He could stand
there screened from street and house
and intercept any one who -looked as
though he or the were coming to re
turn a lost diamond. "It's a beautiful
fix to be in. playing detective to get
another fellow's ring for the girl I
love," Bob admitted. "But it's the
only; ,way I can see her!"
Suddenly he heard voices coming
down the path from the house. He
stepped back among the shrubs until
the people should pass, when he heard
Violet herseir exclaim: Let us sit
here on the bench, father, and wait
for the car. It won't be' along for
five minutes and I'm so afraid of miss
ing some one who might come to re
turn dear Jack's ring-"
Then she began to cry. 'It's dread
ful to lose it. I just loved It!?
Bob felt queer. If Violet, loved the
other fellow like, that, what use was
there for him to try to see. .her any
way? He was not proud of the part
he was playing. He decided that ap
soon as Violet and her father de
parted he would leave the place for

Bob slipped dolly's finery into his pocket
and waited for' the -occupants of the
bench to depart. It would -scarcely do
for him to rush out from his retreat and
present the lady with her ring. There
was no explanation he could make.
That evening he called her on the tele
phone. "Hello!" came Violet Larlmar's sweet,
quiet voice In answer.
"Good evening. Miss Larlmar." Bob
replied as evenly as he could. "This is

October 5 Mary of Modena.
One of the most admirable ot all the
women who have shared the throne with
the kings of England was Mary of
Modena, an Italian princess, who was
born October 5. N5S. Her name In full
was Mary Beatrice Anne Margaret
Isabel, though before her marriage she
was familiarly called Eleanor. She was
a daughter of the illustrious house of
Este, and before her marriage so "care
fully had she been reared" she had
never even heard of England much less
of the Duke of York, whom she married
and who later came to the English
throne as James IL
When James II's first wife died Mary
of Modena's mother was one of the many
ambitious mammas who sent proposals
to the King. Mary had been brought up
In a religious atmosphere, and her ambi
tion In life was to enter a nunnery of
the Visitation Order that her mother had
recently built near her home. When
James II accepted Mary's mother's pro
posals the little princess was heart
broken, and it was only when the Pope
himself sent word to her that she would
be making a "more meritorious sacrifice"
In marrying the King of England than In
entering the convent that the religious
child agreed to the marriage.
At first when Mary met her husband she
wept, for he was far from the sort of
person that would delight a young girl,
but she accepted him as part of her re
ligious duty, and before long came to re
gard him with the tenderest affection In
spite of his faithlessness. At the time
of his death so convinced was she of
his goodness that she thought that he
deserved to be canonized.
Mary's life was full of trials and tribu
lations. Being a devout Catholic, she
was extremely unpopular In Protestant
England. The birth of her only surviv
ing son was regarded by her husband's
subjects as spurious, and eventually she
was forced to flee with him to France,
where the dethroned King soon followed
her. Her life in France was blameless,
and at the time of her death she waa
spoken of as a "saint indeed."
Parents frequently complain that thll
dren do not come to meals on time, that
they do not get out of bed when they
should, that they are habitually late at
school, and so on. Parents themselves
are often responsible for these short
comings In their children.
For Instance, three brothers attend a
school which opens at S:3u, three-fourths
of a mile distant. They ought to bo out
of bed at 620 and such is the rule; but all
sorts of conditions are permitted to in
terfere. One night a caller-will keep the
boys up late. Next morning the mother
will let them sleep late "because boys
must have their full amount of sleep
Every Friday night they go to a party
and on Saturday morning mother dislikes
to "drag the boys out." and so they stick,
to their beds an hoyr longer than the rest
of the family. They are so late, on Sun
day morning that they are often 'tardy at
church. It Is Just as hard, the mother
says, to get them up at 820 on Sunday aa
at 6:30 on Monday. No matter when the
invitation comes to get up, whether late
or early, they decline It and resist ex
hortation as long as they think It Is wise
When a household rule is always obeyed
without exceptions, obedience Is compara
tively easy. Indecision and doubt cause
a mental struggle which brings discom
fort In performing any action. Most ot
the distress connected with such matters
as arising in the morning, being at meals
on time, or being prompt at school, is
due to, mental conflict arising out of lack
of certainty aa to whether these rale
have to be followed or whether soma lib
erty cant be taken with them.
Each act must be performed regularly
under given conditions, and there xmnt
be no exceptions. No doubt as to this
should be left in the child's mind. It la
a cruelty to a child to debate with him
every morning whether he should get u
or not. There should be no room for de
bate. I do not believe in Spartan train
ing. But there are certain activities that
must be performed by young or old
every day, and they ought to be perform
ed with regularity and with no variation.
Then the body and mind win work out a
certain program, and get running on this
program, and friction and wear and tear
will be reduced to a minimum; otherwise
most of the energy will be spent In over
coming resistance of one kind or another.
