The banker had moved over to the
East Side. He was quietly walking
down Mayer Avenue and Hopkins
street, when the old settler cautiously
approached and bid th.e newcomer,

a re .the new resident aren't you?'
Time of day, and question answered
with a .nod.
''Well, this is 'a good part of the
town, but our folks are powerfully re
ligious or say pious. Come to stay,
for life or good behavior?'' quoth the
older man, with a smile at his sickly
joke, looking over in Jordan Green's
Another nod from the newcomer.
''Well that's me, so t.hat one of us
will have the pleasure if not the hon
or of burying .the other. Say, as we
are to be neighbors, it is well to show
our headlights and see 'who is who.'
How do you stand on church, no zeal

"Oh, no,'' said the banker, break

home. read the Bible, attend to our
own busiiness, and let others 'alone,"
this with some heat, as if he would
wrd off 'the old meddler.
But the old settler fired back ''See
here.'' patting his breast, "there will
be no trouble there, just have your
chickens roost high, and keep on-t of

"Have you anything up your sleeve

"How much you got to say he can''

"A brace of fives.''
"Know any pl.ace, we can have a

"'Why in the woods behind John

'Oh, John Scurry will come across,

trees, as gentle zephyrs fanned them
to .and fro, two men were seen leaving
their back yards, with parcels under
their arms, making their way to

the helated pedestrains, and chunking
at a skulking dog that was following
them. What followed, will remain a
mystery, writh that of the hitting of
the famous Billy Patt-erson. But the
settlers do say from the licks and

The new children in the white
house are as interesting a group as
any who have preceded them, and as
the family of the president their nam
es will soon be known and spoken in
every fireside circle in the land. Each
of the three newcomers has a distinct

Corinne Hambidge in the New Idea
To t:he people at large Helen Taft,
the eighteen-year-old daughter of the
house, is, perhaps, the most interest
ing of t'he three children of the new
president, for the American girl holds
the center of the stage always by a
right divine. Miss Helen is an ex
ellent type of the young woman of
today, for besides her youth and mag
nificent healt.h she has nerve and men
tal force, and that baffling, spiritual
something which looks out of the
clear eyes. She is unusually tall, be
ing in height five feet eight inc-hes,
an' inch taller than -her mother, for
whom she is named. Her luxuriant
browvn hair, which she wea-rs in a
simple eo.il on top of her head most
tmes, has a remarkable gold'en luster
to it; her eyes ar a deep corn-flow
er blue, wit:h long, sweeping lashes,
and like her father, she has a pro
nounced dimple in her chin. Her
smile is ratre, but is p)leasant when it
does come, and illuminates her face
Helen Taft .is an ardent student,
''simply g-obbles up facts,'' her bro
ther Charlie says of her, but she is
also an out-of-doors girl.
IHelen's older brother. Robert A.
~Taft- ''Rob'' Taft, as he is known
to his friends-is keeping up the tra
(itionls of his family and winning
prizes almost as fist a-s ther- are of

grandfather graduated third in his

place, and Robert is now leading his

Taft is not a ''grind,'' the college
term of a bookworm for h~e manages
to combine a lot of work wit:h a lot
of fun and get a pretty good time out
He is a tall, muscular young fellow
of nineteen, with straight brown hair,
a rather large mouth and wide apart
gray eves, and gives promise of be
ing a well-set-up man in the future.
He takes an interested part in all
the college sports, but has never spe
eialized~ on any particula'r form of
athletics. He is a tennis enthusiast,
and rides well.
The third child of the Tafts, Chas.
Taft, aged .ten, is the most democratic
member of the family. Quentin
Roosevelt :has a worthy successor mn
Charlie Taft, and he can rely on him
to preserve all:ithe traditions for fun
and mischief for which the former
is famous. The two boys were school
mates at the Force public school ini
Washington, and members of the
same baseball nine whgile there.
Helen Taft Has Traveled Far.
For one of her age Helen Taft is a
very traveled young woman. She has
made four trips aetross the Pacific
and eirc!ed the globe once, accom
panying her parents on their famous
trip around the world. She speaks
French and Spanish, as well as the
native lingro of the Philippines. The
president ' daughter is as old-f ash
ioned a girl in some ways as'she is
up-to-date in others. She has been
taught not only to ''sit on a cushion
and sew a fine seam,'' bu-t to cut and
make her own dresses; she can even
trim a hat at a pineb, and also knows
how to eook and manage a house.
Mrs Taft has always been insistent onz
her daughter having a domestic as
well as a social and mental equip
ment for life. The Tafts are not rich
neople by any means, and the new~
president' wife believes that the do
mestic arts are as much a part of a
voung girl's edueation as a know
ledge of Greek roots or drawing-room
etiquette.-The April New Idea Wo

The best millinsers nowadays
those who can mark their hats at
twenty-five dollars or more-are the
graduates of ,the millinsry schools as
well as being practical milliners of

cal training is to be over-emphasized;
and inborn talent and years of prae
tise are essential to the topmost round
of the ladder; but the training of the
best schools gives one a certain know
ledge of form and color that can no
more be mastered by following undi

become 'a great painter withiout ex

The actual- sewing and trimming of

tion in .the sketching of 'hat designs,
for this knowledge will be of use to

Milliners often wish to go to publie
exhibitions and sketch the. novel mod
els presented there, that they may
carry away new ideas to .their own
work, and while it is not necessary
that A pupil be able to actually draw
pictures, she should nevertheless be
somewhat deft with her pencil.
The meaning of such terms as
''tint,'' ''shade'' and ''tone'' are to
be learned. Much inst.ruetion is giv
en in the subject of color, for it is
one of the two vital factors in the
making of a successful hat, form be
ing the other.--The April Dc..igner.
