MANY hostesses are harassed by
the thought of having to pro
vide "something quite new"
something which, without being ex
cessively elaborate, shall be striking
ly effective and provide a pleasant
surprisa for both young and old.
For children and grown-ups a toy
party is a very enjoyable affair. Each
guest is asked to bring with them a
toy. It may be home-made or bought,
but anyway the cost must not exceed
a sum fixed by the hostess.
The toys are all arrangeu on a ta
ble and each guest votes for the most
original and the most unoriginal bar
ring always their own contribution.
The donors of the two respective toys
receiving most votes each get a prize,
and the whole of the toys are sent to
a hospital or some poor children in the
name of the whole party.
A brown paper party Is also good
fun. The guests all wear costumes
contrived from brown paper. With a
little skill some wonderfully -good
dresses can be arranged. Br'er Rab
bit, Eskimos, Red Indians, Prairie
Girl, Cowboy these are a few of the
most obvious suggestions.
For children a lairy party is very
attractive. The room should be clear
ed of ordinary furniture and trans
formed into a fairy palace. Some
painted cardboard, tree branches, tin
eel, flowers and twinkling lights skil
fully arranged will effect a most real
istic transformation.
The Invitations should be sent out
in the names of the fairies, and the
little guests should come as fairies
of every clime and if liked charac
ters of well-known fairy tales.
in similar way it is possible to give
a witch party in a magic cave or a
Dutch party in a Dutch interior, while
forethought will suggest other ideas
equally atractive and easy to carry
through successfully.
When presents are given at a chil
dren's party the following novel idea
will be found an attractive method of
distribution: Cut a cake Into slices,
and on the outside of each slice fasten
a present, with. the name of Jthe.ln-.

skeins. It has tie advantage of mak

pocket, then sew another piece above

to the band by a safety pin. Money

the business girl to give a lit

Some business women do try to save
a certain percentage of their salary,
but others give no thought of It. And
especially is this true of the begin
ner in business. It is such a novelty
to her to have her own money to
spend, it is so delightful to buy what
ever she wants without having to con
sult anyone, that her money slips
through her fingers like water. The
thought of systematic saving has not
yet entered her head.
- But there Is a pleasure in systei--t-1c
saving that has to be experienced
to be realized. And there are future
benefits that are still more delight
ful. And it Is a practice that in itself
has a great effect on a girl's charac
ter. So that there is eg girl who will
not be profited by saving, and profit

So it will pay even the most
thoughtless little business girl to give
some attention to the matter.
The best way for the business girl
to save is not to put by the quarter or
half dollar or dollar that may be left
in her purse at the end of the week.
Of course, it Is better to do this than
not to save at alL. But the most sat
isfactory way to save is to save sys
tematically, to decide to put by so
much each week, and then to do it.

of the programme of successful sav
ings is to put by the money at the
beginning of the week, on the day the
pay envelope is received. If the
amount to be saved is in the- saving
fund. It cannot be spent and one will
get along somehow without it. But if
it is in the pocketbook, it is liable to
slip away, and when the day for pay
ing it into the fund comes, it is not
at hand.
Saving systematically In this way
Introduces system into one's method
of living. A girl is compelled to know
what her expense are in order to
know how much she ca- save. There
fore, the beginning of systematic sav
ing is apt to mean the inauguration
of an expense account.
And few things are so helpful to
the business girl as this. When she
sees, in black and white, where her
money is going, she is apt to spend
more carefully. And though a girl
may think the keeping of an expense
account at this period of her life Is
all foolishness, and that the Jottine
down of five cents for cand and 10
cents for soda and 25 cents for neck
wear is a waste of time, its results
reach much farther than she now
If she gets the habit -f keeping tab
on her expenses, and learns in this
way the proportion that should exist
between the various items, if in time
she has a home of her own to manage,
and the probability Is she will, then
she will be able to run her household
expenses more successfully.
She will not be U.e sort of wife who

has gained in keeplnj her personal
account will stand her in good stead
now in more important matters. For
making outgo and income match in
household management is a most im
portant matter, and upon it often rests
the happiness of the home.
The girl who has . a bank account
has a sense of independence and free
dom that is worth a lot to her. If she
has something to fall back upon she
doesn't have to endure unendurable
conditions of work. This doesn't

fickle and changeable. But crcry
business girl knows that there have
been times when, for perfectly good,
sound reasons, she would have given
anything to have been able to "throw
up her job." But she had nothing
whatever to fall back upon and so
she had to endure the long hours or
the unhealthy surroundings or the un
pleasant associates.
But there are many other advan
tages besides this, that results from
systematic saving.
Again, a girl may have seen a good
opening. But with no money in bank,
perhaps, with some one depending
upon her, she has been afraid to take
any risk. And so she has had to let
