IT IS just as important for a woman
to have regard for the rules of

business affairs as in matters purely

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.

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.

-THE NEW8 ARE.1
THEHE are certain words In Eng-
X lish which are seemingly plural In
.meaning because they are plural In
form, ending in Ms. But they are
really singular in meaning, and there
fore they should take the singular
verb, not the plural, although the prop--er
" use may seem incorrect. 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.
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. No Baby is so abnormal that
the desired results may be had from the use of medicines primarily
prepared for grown-ups.
