Ingenious But Not Inventive,
Women have Croat Ingenuity la
adapting old cont rlvancos to now ends,
ut little power for Inventions. Tha
patent office at Washington contains,
U bo uuro, many models from femt
line hands, some useful and mrao fan
tlc. For example, one woman who
sishc-d to combine pardoning and poultry-raising
Invented an anti-scratchlng
iH'MancG for the feet of her hens; but
t Is to be feared the condition of the
.'caihered flock suffered from lack of
Jicir customary relish of worms. Most
f the popular and effective convent,
nces of personal and domestic life
lave been made by men. A woman
ran do more things with a hairpin
.ban a man could ever accomplish. She
rill pick a lock, extract a bean from
t baby's car or nose, run a string Into
i curtain, hang a picture or button her
joots with the useful hairpin. Rut In
ipite of the frantic demand for a prac
jrable pocket, the has cot Invented
oe; and she still washes and wipes
6y hand the family dinner dishes. A
woman's ability to make the best of
!ngs as they are Is a distinct charae
:crlstlc of the sex, says Youth's Com
panion. It would be sadly missed If It
were to be supplanted by even a high
srder of original Inventiveness. For
:fcls easy, rapid adaptation of inad
juate means to desired ends is applied
by a woman not only to the machinery
5f the household, but to the human
To roe among which she lives. The In
genious wife adapts even a clumpy
ausband and an inexperienced cook tc
ihe production of domestic harmony.
A Reasonable Expranation.
Henry James Is credited with the
remark that he "never heard 8n Amer
ican woman say 'thank you." " We con
lecture, says Chicago Tribune, that on
ace or more occasions Mr. James hat
risen In a crowded car and offered a
seat to some woman who did not say
"thank you" for the reason that sh
recognized bim by his printed por
traits and knew she would not havt
time to say: "Sensible In high de
jree. although It should be observed
perhaps, that In the domain of the in
telU-ctual there should not be seeded
the propulsive effect of a motive as t
stimulus to the process of realizatior
In the abstract, apart from an Implied
obligation willingly assumed, and not
wholly conventional, even though II
may be the result of unconscious voll
tlon, or, to express the thought In
terms less vague and elusive, and
frankly recognizing. In the background
cf consciousness, the simulacrum o!
an anticipated quid pro quo dismiss
lag all this. I say, as shadowy and ua
real, and subjecting the ponderable
residuum to such analysis as we may
with such crude materials as we hav
at hand, for in the realm of the lma
plnaion there will be found the cruel
ble of the alchemist, quite as real and
substaniial, albeit composed of sub
stances not existent on the materia
plane," etc. .
