LOOKING AFTER THE PENNIES
Cornelius Vanderbilt Was Exacting in
Many Respects, but He Gave
Mr. Vanderbilt was notably exacting
in his personal business relations of
himself as well as of others, writes
Richard M. Wlnans In Harper's Week
ly. At a meeting of a certain rail
road's board of directors of which he
was a member It was found that sev
eral were absent. At a fall board
meeting each director received $10,
and it was the rule that If any were
absent those present shared the total
fee. That Is, If but half the members
were present each attending member
would receive $20, and so proportion
ately. On the day of the meeting re
ferred to the number of absentees
made the division of the fee amount
to certain odd dollars and twelve and
a half cents. At the close of the meet
ing, as the secretary banded each mem
ber his apportioned fee, he accepted
the given number of dollars and pass
ed up the twelve and a half cents to
avoid the bother of making change.
When the secretary came to Mr. Van
derbilt, however, he found him busily
counting some small coin from a purse
onto the table. "I can change a dol
lar for you and will take the 12 cents."
tsald Mr. Vanderbilt; then smiled as he
added, "but I cannot manage the half
cent." And the man wortfc more than
a hundred million dollars bad taken the
troublo to change a dollar for the sake
of 12 cents, which, together with the
extra dollars, had come to him by the
default of others. Had the proposed
half penny then been In circulation he
would probablly -have "managed the

The rrost telling cthrm a g'rl cai
have Is a swoet vo!cn, arid yet how
fcften, alas. Is the quality of the volca
ttterly Ignored by young people. One
bears tho terrible twang Indigenous
to this country issuing from ki"iab!j
cors.1 l!ps, bears maids In the finest
raiment speaking with the hoarspness
of ravens cr with voices as badly
managed as those of monkeys. Yet
there are elocutionists for training
the voice to honeyed notes, and the
owner of the dulcet voice Is ft power
In every circle of society. For al
though the voice Is the eap!st of a'.!
the points of woman's beauty to train
Into ways of loveliness it generally
happen that the low, exquisitely
timbered and beautifully used voice
goes with the superior nature.
The deaf speak discordantly be
cause they cannot hear the manner
In which they are pitching their
voices. So hearing Is needed for
voice training, and It Is possible to
cultivate its sensitiveness with very
simple home methods. Listen, to all
tha beautifully-pitched voices that
como your way and then go Into your
room and practice with tha contrast
of your own naturally speaking
voice. Ycu will see your mistakes in
short order, and by keeping the er
ror in mind, as Important to your
charm, you will soon find yourself
Imitating the lovely voice, first copy
ing the manner in which Blngie words
are utterpd and then essaying some
whole phrase caught up from the
voice melodious. Little by little you
will get the right inflections, and thn
6omehow you will grnsp at last the
spiritual sldo of human Bpeech. The
feeling of words will appear, and you
will utter thorn In the risrht manner,
telling your fairy tale with the right
touch of gayety and your tale of sor
row with due solemnity.
According to voice specialists, the
commonest defect In young people la
the pitching of the voice too tiph,
and this Is accompanied by a nervous
tension which holds tho throat taut
and strained. The breath is "short
and hurried, which cuts the over
tones and destroys the vibrations. So
the high pitch must first he over
come, and since reserve breath and
a wholesome state of the throat and
nose are needed these organs and
the lunps must receive their due
share of attention. The simplfst
breathing exercises, taken quite twico
a day In a full and rhythmic manner,
will undoubtedly Improve a defective
voice through the help tho ererciso
lends to tho vocal cords. Deep
breathing, too, Is often advised for
bashfulness and stammering, those
two great banes of timid youth, which
if not overcome in time will some
times last until life's end.
For the girl whose general health
Is none of the best, and whose voice
soon weara out with class recitations,
a diet of molasses and coarse bread
is to be recommended. Sweet milk
and buttermilk will also be of much
benefit, while a raw egg, beaten up
with a little lemon juice, and taken
beforo breakfast is almost certain to
ward off hoarseness during the day.
Raw eggs are very healing and feed
ing to the throat and lungs, and
should be given far oftener to under
nourished young people, whose very
delicacy makes them ready victim
to lung and throat diseases.
Anything which interferes with
the general health will affect the
beauty and strength of the voice,
and since the membrane of throat
and nose Is so delicate it must al
ways be given immediate care In time
of trouble or, better still, ba kept
In a healthy state with the frequent
ose of antiseptic washes.
But a lot of the ugliness in youth
ful voices comes from bad habits
alone. ' The young 'people are not
corrected for their vocal errors In
time, they are allowed to sing at too
early an age, they sleep and sit In
rooms too hot and dry. they have
the example of other badly-trained
children, or get the habit from their
tone-deaf elders. But It is never too
late for the girl who has been neg
lected In this way to Improve herself
If sha will only realize that a sweet,
well-modulated voice Is one of worn
Bin's greatest fascinations and that
all her success In Its attainment lies

From a Misculire Reader.
I, as a youcg j man, hare found

I have a birthday abo'it the m'cid'
cf the month and wo-:M like to have a
few friends in. Would this be proper
for a your.g man to do?
What would you place on the Invita
tions? What would you serve that wou'J
not make too much work?
What could we do for amusement,
as they do not tl'.ow card playing at

to dance? Art.
It Is good to know that we have

family; it mtkes U3 feel j-eally worth
while. It will bo perfectly proper for
you to entertain on your birthday,
and I think, as such affairs should
be very Informal, that I would Just
'phone the Invitations or ask the
friends when I saw them. All yon
need have at an evening party will
be ice cream and a birthday cake.
I am sorry you cannot have either

New Games Requested.
A crowd of chlldrtn, ages from
twelve to fifteen, "play out," as we
call it, nearly every night at different
homes, and our favorite game was
"clay in and clay out," but now wo
are tired of that, and wUh you would
kindly publish some new games.
J. B. S.
When I was your a;;? our great
pamg was "Hide And Go Seek" aud
" I Spy." Do not tell any one, but
a party of grown-up children played
these self same games not long ago
out in tho moonlight. Of course one
of tho real children was having a
birthday party, and to celebrate the
achievement of nine "long" years
tho entire family, including parents,
uncles and aunts, joined In the after
supper pastimes. It waa tho dignified
college professor who proponed "Hide
and Seek," and a jolly game it was.
I am sure I do not need to tell any
of you how to play it
To a - Faithful Reader."
A man should taka care of his own
hat, laying It on the table or hat rack.
Just say, "I enjoyed the dance very
much;" Its hardly fair to deprive a
man of a dance, so explain to him
and tell him to fill bis program for
that number. I do not approve of
couples leaving by themselves and
going other places during a dance. I
cannot tell you how to keep up your
correspondence If tho young man does
not care to write. It Is not necessary
to shake bands with everyone; ft host
ess usually does In her own bouse.
It Is polite to rlae when guest enter
the room. You know I am old
fash'oned, I do not like a young cou
ple to go off on long Jaunt by them
selves. Neither do I approve of
"touching hands." You will never be
sorry for not doing these things.
Impossible to Say.
Kindly tell me the best cook book
In use. I have several, but fall to
find ao many things In them. H. M.
There are so many good books, It
Is Impossible to make a choice, even
If I were permitted to give names and
addresses here; as I am not, wjll you
kindly send me a self-addressed
stamped envelope, In care of the
Reply to n "Orphan Blonde."
You certainly did right la calling
your aunt, and I hope you will never
go with that boy again. He acted
mont ungentlemanly. A girl of four
teen or younger, as you say you are,
has no occasion to be out so late or to
have beaus fas you call them.) It la
plai.i that the boy you mention doe
not know how to act.
The Party Call.
I would L'ke to know how soon after
a wedding ceremony or reception,
luncheon or party should one return
a call? M. 11. T.
Ceremonious decrees of older daye
decreed that "party" call should ba
made within two weeks after tho
event, but In this busy age within a
month will do.
By all mean ride horseback and
use any saddle you choose person
ally. You have gotten your growth early;

oldor than they are, especially youtg

to kiss In public, and not very long

having been guilty of this offense.
They had all been dining together In

They were condemned to short term
of Imprisonment, and the sentence
were confirmed on appeal. Tbe gen
