Housemaids in Chicago get $7 to $9
a week easily, with their board, but
girls prefer to work where they may
enjoy their freedom after their day's
work is done. I don't blame them.
"The reason the servant girl ques

American housewives were servants
themselves that they try to forget this
fact as quickly as possible: likewise
the servant and the servant's comfort.

Actress In an Airship.
Mr. Stanley Cooke, an English the-'
atrical manager, was considerably per
turbed recently by the contents of a
letter received from Miss Ola Hum
phrey, his leading lady.
The letter stated that she proposed
going from Munich to Oberarnmergau
in order to witness the Passion play
and that the first twenty-five miles
would be accomplished in an airship,
the remainder in a motor. The let
ter also contained instructions in case
of an accident.
Mr. Cooke immediately telegraphed.
begging Miss Humphrey not to at
tempt the flight, hut it was too late.
The adventurous young lady, accom
panied by five gentlemen, had already
started. The voyage proved a success,
and Mr. Cooke's fears were allayed
by the receipt of an enthusiastic tele
gram announcing the safe arrival of
Miss Humphrey, when interviewed
after her trip, admitted she felt very
nervous as the time approached for
the start, and as the airship rose and
the earth apparently receded the whole
of her past life flashed through her
brain, but this soon gave place to a
feeling of great exhilaration as the
dirigible sailed majestically over au
ever changing panorama.
Miss Ola Elumphrey, who is a Cali
fornlan actress new to London, is so
enchanted with her experience' that
she has decided to take up aeroplan

From Mexico' 1 and has already written
to Mr. Grahame-White with a view to
