The dining-room should, of course, be

JILLS OF ALL THADES.

in the London Queen. Theyareboxmakcrs

Except as stopgaps, they are never or any

tliey are first to go short of a place when
work Is scarce. They are not more lacking
in personal ambition than in ambition for
the good name and good conditions of the
tradeln which temporarily theyarcenrollcd.
They are as much part of the hire system
as a suite of furniture, as much liable to be
knocked about and to be precariously paid
Yet I doubt whether the Jill-of-all
Trades In the industrial ranks is quite
such an irritating and troublesome being
as her counterpart in the proresioual class.
Ourpoorcr Jlll'sraultsareat least passive,
and arc mainly noxious to hcrseir. She
quite quietly, does our industrial Jill;
she troubles nobody to steer her errant
course, she askes no one Tor advice.
The mlddlcvlass Jill, on the contrary, is
farcrer In quest of advice, and she has as
many counselors as strings to her employ
Persons whose weakness Is to advise
young women aliout careers find In her
their constant chastisement; for the course
upon which she seeks advice Is the only
course that you may lie certain she will
not follow, the goal to which she ls os
tensibly label's! being, as In the case of some
wayward vehicles, a sure indication that
she Is en route elsewhither.
That Jack6-of-all-trades were on the
scene while women were still slicking
firmly to their one last of domesticity
is not, perhaps, a ratt that matters much.
There are the industrial Jacks, who are
divisible into the two classes of loafers
and of invaluably handy men.
And there are the middlc-cLoss Jacks,
who oscillate between the professions oue
slipping between the two stools of the
bar and the press, another between sol
dlering and stockbroklng; a third is

But the Jacks Willi all their faults may
be left to the attention of their wives and
friends. It is seldom for want of negative
advice Uiat, a man puts bis eggs into more

loo, the advice of friends usually is in re

my argument away on to a branch line.
The main coarse, however, Thlch I In
tended to pursue with this cxhortutlou was
to urge the majority or young women who
have made a tolerably careful choice to
"continue in one stay."
"Stick to your business stick, stick,
stick!" is the persuasion that most girls
need. "Stick long enough, and in the end
you will succeed."
After all there are not many things that
keep cheerfulness better sustained than
success. Girls talk of giving up some career
in order to "see life."
Bat what Is the use of standing by to
watch other people make their lives,
compared with making one of your own?
In Ihe mind of the mere spectator of any

there Is always a secret bitterness.
