The Right Thing at the Right Time By MARY MARSHALL DUFFEE Net Contents 15FImd Pacing V & srv,?5r BUSINESS MATTERS. The materials of action are variable, but the use we make of them should be -constant. Eplctetus. IT IS just as important for a woman to have regard for the rules of (rood form In the transaction of her business affairs as in matters purely octal. Sometimes a woman who is Irreproachably correct in all social conduct, and who is courtesy and good breeding personified in her so cial relations, is careless of rules of courtesy and good breeding in her business transactions. In a small -town especially, such duplicity of con duct is sure to lead to unpopularity. What good is it if a woman is charm ing to Mrs. Smith, whom she meets In her club. If she is discourteous to Mrs. Smith's husband, who la cashier In her bank, or what good can it do to be punctilious in all her dealings with Mrs. Brown if she neglects to -pay what she owes to Mr. Brown, who runs the grocery store. Remember then that when doing any sort of , business with any sort of person, you should begin the transae- HOW DO YOU SAY IT? y y c ru Luiub r Common Errors in English and. How to Avoid Them tlon with a courteous "good morning. If you ask a favor of a tradesman or anyone with whom you do business, do not fall to let him know tha't you regard it as such. If you are not going to be able to pay your bills on the first of the month, do the courteous considerate thing about it. Go to the grocer, or butcher, or doctor, or dentist, and tell him that you find it impossible or in convenient to do so, and ask him for the favor of extended credit. Do not simply neglect payment and then pre tend when you do pay that it is sim ply a matter of carelessness or for getfulness on your part. If a tradesman is courteous enough to remember your name in doing busi ness and addresses you by it, do not forget that it Is just as considerate if you remember his name likewise. Remember that it is just as incon siderate to ask your grocer to make a special trip of his delivery wagon because you have carelessly forgotten to give your order till afternoon, as it is to ask a neighbor to put herself out to do some favors for you. If the grocer does accommodate you, then you should express your appreciation with just as much courtesy as though the transaction was one of a social sort instead of purely business.

Among such words are "news," "politics," economics." One should not say, for example, "The news concerning the war are good"; "politics, when prop erty conducted, are a good pursuit for a citizen"; "economics have been called the dismal science." In all of these cases, use the slnguar verb. There are, however, certain words ending In "s" concerning which there Is doubt. - Grammarians differ fre quently concerning the proper verbs to be employed with such nouns as "headquarters" and "alms." "The general's headquarters were (or was) at Richmond," we may say; "the alms given to the- poor family are (or is) not sufficient for its maintenance." "Means", may be either - singular or I plural, accordingly as the means Is or are singular or plural. CCopyrtsht.) -o That Baby should have a bed of its own all are agreed. Yet it Is more reasonable for an infant to sleep with grown-ups than to use a man's medicine in an attempt to regulate the delicate organism of that same infant. Either practice is to be shunned. If either would be tolerated by specialists in children's diseases. Your Physician will tell you that Baby's medicine must be prepared with even greater care than Baby's food. A Baby's stomach when in good health is too often disarranged by improper food. Could you for a moment, then, think of giving to your ailing child anything but a medicine especially prepared for Infants and Children ? Don't be deceived. Make a mental note of this: -It is important, Mothers, that you should remember that to function well, the digestive organs of your Baby must receive special cares.

BRAVE IKEY DUCK. The rainfall around the Caspian sea Is only 10 inches a year. IKEY was a young duck, that his mother had a great deal of trouble with, because he ran away every time be found a chance, and as Madam Duck had many ducklings besides her son to look after, Ikey found many chances. "Some day you will meet Mr. Fox," said his mother, "and then It will be too late to be a good duckling, for Mr. Fox carries off all runaway ducklings." "But I am not afraid of Mr. Fox." said brave Ikey. "1 am going to grow up to be a big, brave duck, like Grand pa Drake, so I cannot be afraid of anything." "Grandpa Drake would not like to meet Mr. Fox," said Madam Duck, "for Mr. Fox carries off to his cave in the woods big and small ducks." Ikey Duck did not answer, but wad dled along after his sisters and his mother until they were hunting In puddle for things they liked, and Ikey saw another chance to run away. Down to the duck pond he waddled and away he swam to a part of the pond where he had never before been. How little Teddy Bear happened to be sitting under a bush by the pond was never known, but there he was, and Ikey Duck, swimming along, saw his shining eyes and open mouth. "Ah, Mr. Fox!" said Ikey Duck to himself, "I will show that fellow, he can't scare me." - Bight up close to the bank went brave Ikey and began to quack at Teddy Bear, and. of course, Teddy did not move. "He is afraid of me," said Ikey, "I wish mother could see me now. I am sure she would think I am quite able to take care of myself." And then brave Ikey opened his bill, snapped at little Teddy Bear, and. tugging at one foot, pulled him into the water. Away he went, with Teddy still held by his foot, skimming over the water. Madam Duck and her children were at the side of the pond when Ikey swam up by the barnyard. What have you found I" asked his mother, her eyes wide open with sur prise, while the little ducklings ran up the bank In alarm. "It Is Mr. Fox," said Ikey, letting go of Teddy Bear's foot. "He is afraid of me, mother. I tol you I was not airaia or mm, and, you see, I am not." Madam Duck did not know at first just what to do or say, and she stepped back to take a good look at a safe distance. "It isn't Mr. Fox I am sure of that," she said, "but what It is I do not know. I will get Mr. Dog. He is very wise and knows about everything." "That is a toy," said Mr. Dog. when he saw Teddy Bear. "It belongs to My beau he is particular. About the way I'm dressed.

"He is not afraid of Mr. Fox, either," said brave Ikey, "Mr. Dog and I are very brave fellows." "I suppose he will have to learn by experience who Mr. Fox really Is," quacked poor Madam Duck, shaking her head as Ikey waddled up the bank to tell all the farmyard animals that he had caught Mr. Fox, for, in spite of what Mr. Dog. or his mother had said Ikey declared he had caught Mr Fox.
