OUR FOLLIES SARTORIAL
Thirty—or was it forty!—years ago women hobbled at tin* wasp

tip nn ordinary sized ballroom, and this was eminently correct. Now
the Idea has '.li reversed.
One of the worst of our many follies Is the sartorial. Men, all
angles and awkwardness, wear precisely the kind of clothing which
emphasizes ugliness if you don't believe that, look at a bunch" of
graduates In caps and gowns, the Human Catholic priest la church.

well In ordinary modern clothing does so in spite, not because of,
what she wears.
Should we put men In skirts and women In trousers? Nil, but
suitability, not sex, should be tha criterion. The working woman
should lie a.-. free and comfortable In her clothing as Is the working

Dear Miss Crey: I have been liv

Dear Miss Grey: Would you
kindly send me the address of
Prince Carl, whose letter was pub
lished In Tueaday'a paper*
Thanking you for your past favor, '
1 remain, very truly yours, E.
Seattle.
Dear Miss Crey: Would- yon
please tell me whether or not
Prince Carl found a lady friend to
suit him? lam a young widow, and
know all the comforts of a home. Is
there any way that I could see or
hear from him personally?

A.—Sponge the material with
naphtha or wash carefully with
Ivory soap and cold water.
Dear Miss Grey—We hear so
much talk nowadays of the
small salaries paid to young ladies
who work in the stores, of how
bard It Is for them to live decently
on the money they earn and of
some of these girls being driven
Into the white slave traffic as a
result of these conditions Of ours*
we know that the majority of the
girls who are employed as clerks
are living at home with their
parents, who are not dependent
upon their wage*. But there are
a few. I dare say, who are practi
cally alone, far away from home
and friend*, who are solely de
pendent on themselves. Many
of these girls only earn I* or 17
per week and have a hard fight
to make ends met.
Now there are many young menl
clerks who earn 112 to $15 per
week who would like to marry,
but who are handicapped owing to
their salary not being sufflcent for
two. Now would it not be a good
Id.-a to bring together these two—
the girl who Is having such a hard
time and the young man who need.
torn for a wife? The girl could keep
on working until the man had
sufflcently advanced himself to
permit her to retire This would
lift a great burden off the girl's
shoulders and at the same time
spur the man on to advancement
I for mi.- would be glad to marry
one of these girls or any young
lady to whom this may appeal. I
have a steady position at $12 per
week with excellent opportunities
for advancement and would be
very pleased to hear from some
good wholesome girl who would
appreciate this effer. T. M. B.
