a writer In the Gentlewoman. During tha

four and three-quarters.

Lerky, the English historian, has written
a wise book. "The Map of Life," in which,
he says a few true things regarding the

gtenograpbers aa Wives.
From day to day It may be seen In the
newspapers, treated as a matter out of
the ordinary and therefore of much In
terest, that "he," meaning a man of money
and Influence and social standing, "haa
married his stenographer." The Idea seems
to be because "he" has money, and "she"
Is' or was a stenographer, something un
usual has occurred something on the order
of the prince who married the beggar
maid in the fairy story.
But why, really, should there be any fuss
about It? Applying common sense to the pro
positionj comments the Savannah News,
are not the chances about equal that "he"
has done much better by marrying his
stenographer than he would have done
by going Into "society" for his bride, and
that "she" has made sec rlf ices In marry
lng him? The assumption, presumably, i
that It is "he" who has stooped, but In
the majority of instances it would doubt

much money Is a coarse, unlovely fellow,

light of publicity or stand Inspection by the

rather than an advance, when a
grapner marries such a man.
As rule the stenographer and .type
writer girls who succeed in business and
who attract the admiration and sincere
affection of their employers, do so upon
merit alone. They make places for them
selves because they are worthy of them.
They have brains to use, and they know
how to use them. They are not dolls,
suited only to be played with at social
functions. They know what Hfe meana.
what Its struggles are, and what dls-
appotntments are Inevitable. The society
doll ls a perpetual burden upon thoae who
ro,y btco,n( charged with her support.
The girl who knows how to work, and
who goes out and does It, Is not a burden
to anybody, but a help and an Inspiration.
What la more natural, therefore, and
what would be more ln the line of com
mon sense than for a business man to
aelact as his life partner e young woman
who knows how to work, how to think.
how to execute the Ideas she has evolved?
The cold fact Is that men of money pos
sibly make a great mistake when they
fall to consider their stenographers and
office girls as desirable candidates for
promotion to wifehood. The happiest mar
riage Is that which is mutually most help
ful, and the trained business man must
certainly find the most help In a woman
w-ho knows how to enter Into his plans
and who will help him work them out.

Those who have shuddered for months
past at the load of false puffs and glm
cracks wlla which women of fashion have
loaded their heads, will welcome the new
coiffure which Is repidly displacing the
present mode In foreign capitals. In It they
may hall a sensible and sanitary mode of
hair dressing, and at the same time pay
their respects to the exquisite taste of
the creeks, who originated, or at least
made famous the style, some centuries be-
lu" vuruiuan era. Tne classic Psyche
knot la slready well known, but this new
ooiffure Is something suite different;
whereas the Psyche knot held the hair In
a large col or mass at ths back of the
head, and required for Its successful use
aa abundance of hair, this mode makes no
demands upon capillary abundance, and
places the locks low upon the head, both
at the aides and back. Various pictures on
this page Illustrate this fully. The pre
dominating feature of the coiffure ls the
use of the fillet, or band of some rich
material, which binds In the hair.
The great sculptors of Greece found this
a favorite way of adorning the head,
whether male or female, and by their
chisels perpetuated the style. The great
renascence of the mode came during the
years of the French revolution, and the
