Hi OF INTEREST TO WOMEN AND THE HOME “PRACTICAL FOR VACATION TRIP” y\ / * / ■ i!-in./ / /TsOns ii t\ mmm IA Vx wirjw g There's military primness about this stunning little suit in "soldier's cloth," or khaki, which makes it practical for a vacation trip on which you expect to tramp about. Dark green khaki cloth is used in this model, made for a school girl. The plainness of the Norfolk jacket Is relieved by a smart little ripple, and the skirt has a decided "billow'’ to It. too. The Jacket Is stitched in black and black buttons trim the patch THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE I Alice’s Story Ends. -We will make the parent* get nerrou* for fear the boy will rnarr> the girl," I continued, aa Pat and Alice leaned forward to hear every word of my atory. “We will let the father say, ‘l’ll double your allow ance ao that you can care for her properly, if you will promise not to marry her.' The boy will answer. T shall marry her the moment 1 am 21. which will be In about a month.’ •’Then the father gets busy- Af ter lending the boy west for a month and obtaining a promise from him that he will not write to the girl, he baa her arrested for obtaining goods under falie pretenses. He shows the bills for the furnishings of the apart ment to bolster up his esse. “The girl confesses she bought the goods and a ays the boy told her to do so. “The father mekes his esse —in the absence of the boy—end the girl Is sent to the house of correction, and afterward paroled to a splendid woman who believes In her. “Os course, all her love for the boy wanlsbee when she finds that she has been left to bear this awful disgrace alone, but she picks up her life's threads bravely and goes to work that she may forget. “Time goea on end a good man falls In love with her and asks her to marry him. “That Is as far as I have gone, Pat," I said sfter a little hesitation. “I don’t know whether to make her tell the man before she answers him or not. You see, her disgrace in the courtroom was more or less public, and if she doe* not tell him some day someone might recognise her.'* “Do you mean to tell me that, ac cording to your Ideas of whst a woman should do under these cir cumstances, you have for a moment harbored the thought that she should not tell him?" asked Pat harshly. I taw Alice cringe a little and put her hands to her mouth to keep back any sound. “Now, Pat, what do you mean by that? I want to make It completely understood In my story that a worn on’s past belongs to herself alone; that she can keep It hidden or bring It forth and exhibit It as she wishes Do you mean to tell me that If you were going to marry a woman you would feel called upon to tell her all the hidden romances of your life, not only your sins, hut all your little foolish mistakes? Rather would you close your book of life and seal Its pages, saying to your self, ’from now on my life belongs to her: the past Is ended’"’ Pat thought a minute, and then, being particularly hones', said: “I guess you are right, Margie, but any man would hate to think that tht woman he asks to be bit wife pockets; the belt Is black patent leather. A nnish room hat of green itiaw is trimmed with varicolored >arn crocheted on the crown; the lolni is stenciled In the same colors. A summery little gown, sweet as a day In June, is white marquisette embroidered in little dots of bur gundy silk, make surplice bodice, draped hips and an empire girdle of marquisette embroidered In bur gundy. has done anything that would allow any man. woman or child In the uni verse to point to her with the finger of scorn.” “That Is Just a stab at your pride, your egotism, my dear Pat, but It ought not to affect your love." Pat thought a minute and then said. “Well, It will be a long while before wp get to that part of your story, and we can talk It over more than once and so get the right psy chology of the matter. What Is the next episode?” “Well, you see. Pat, It will depend on whether the man Is ready to for give or not, for in the case I have cited the girl will almost have to confess or live In torture all the time for fear of being found out. "What would a man do If the girl he loved told him this story?** “I don’t know, Margie, for I can not conceive loving a woman who has lived through a past of this kind. I am sure I’d feel that some thing was wrong even If there were no confession. "No woman could live through an experience of that kind without It leaving some Impress on her face as well as her character." Impulsively he turned toward Alice.

DETROIT TIMES | The IRLS’ Hr VJ JOB By JESSIE ROBERTS A teacher in a business college held an Informal talk for young women lately which I was privi leged to attend. She had a good deal to say about business training and efficiency, and the sort of quali ties that make for or against suc cess And at the end she came out strongly as disapproving the sort of young woman who takes advant age of her sex in order to slur her work "There are many girls who play upon their sex In order to skimp their work,” she said. "This Is an unfair thing to do, and It harms us all Many employers get to think that they must not expect work of as high a grade from a woman as from a man. because they have had so much experience in the kind of woman who lays bark on her Jolt and expects to he excused for it simply because she is a woman. "In the mere matter of prompt ness a great many girls presume on their sex. A young man who was late more than once or twice a month, would be pretty sure to get a calling down, and a sharp one. but a girl will continue week after week to he from 10 minutes to a half-hour late, nnd expect to get off with no more than an Impatient wish on the part of her employer that she 'could manage to get here on time.' "It is just because of these wom en that women ns a whole cannot command the same prices for work done a men. They aren't worth It. And thn e .that are. and who do their work as well as a man does his. and with no notion of presum ing on tlieir sex as an escape from faults or laxities, are handicapped by the poor impression many em ployers have received from girls in their employ." I don't want you to think that this speaker didn't have a lot of nice things to say. and that she wasn’t proud of what women are doing. But there is this element to be con sidered in planning for improved eonditions all along the line, and It Is in the hands of every one of you girls who work at a paving Job.

W. burgess ) By THORNTON W. BURUEBS. As she ran swiftly down across the Gre,en Meadows toward the home of Digger the Badger there was a sparkle in the eyes of Granny F’ox. Behind her. his great voice startling all the little people near and causing them to hurry to places where they would be safe and at the same time could see what was going on, ran Bowser the Hound, and If you could tell anything by looks It was very plain that Bowser had made up his mind that this time lie would catch Granny. But then Bowser always does make up his mind Just like that whenever he starts to hunt Old Granny F'ox. The fact that he never has caught her doesn’t liother him at all. It seems to simply make him the more sure each time that this time he will be successful. In cool weather Granny rather en joys these runs. She hasn’t the least fear of Bowser, because she has such faith in her own nimble w’its that she knows that whenever she gets tired she can play a trick on him and fool him so that he will lose her tracks. In warm weather she does not, as a rule, enjoy a run ahead of Bowser, but this time she was enjoying it. which accounted for the sparkle In her eeys. In fact, she was chuckling as she ran. She took pains not to get very far ahead of Roofer. She kept only a very little so that she was right his eyes all the time and he didn’t have to waste any time picking out her trail with his wonderful nose. You see, Granny wanted him to run his very fastest. She wanted Bowser to get down to the home of Digger the Badger be fore Digger, who was out hunting, could get back there. It was a very simple and a very clever plan of Granny's. She would lead Bowser wit Silk and Cloth Suits and Coats $18.50 $27.50 Formerly priced Formerly priced up to $35. up to $45. $37.50 $1,7.50 Formerly priced Formerly priced up to S6O. up to S9O.

Perhaps he would kill IMgger. If he did she wouldn't be sorry. She hadn't liked Digger since the first time she saw him when he came to the Green Mead ows to live, and since the day when he had stirred up the Bumble-bees by robbing their home of honev close by where she had been sit ting, and they, in the blindness of their anger, had stung her, she bad fairly hated him. As Bowser's great voice rolled down across the Green Meadows she saw Digger sit up that he might better see what was going on. Then he dropped down and started to run towards his home. Granny almost laughed aloud for she saw that she and Rowser would get there long before Digger did. You know his legs are so short and he Is such a heavy fellow that at his best he Is a slow runner. Digger soon saw that he couldn't possibly reach his home first and, as soon as he saw this he stopped running. Yes, sir, he stopped running. Instead he stretched himself out flat on the ground. Being such a broad, flat fellow there was nothing much of him to see when he did this. If you had happened along past there while he was stretched out that way you probably would not have seen him at all. If you did you probably wouldn’t have guessed that he was anything alive. That Is Digger's wise way of keeping out of trouble w'hen he Is caught too far from home to get back there safely. Granny Fox knows all about this trick of Digger’s. She turned up her nose as she saw him flatten down in the grass. ”1 wonder if he thinks he can fool me that way,” she muttered, scornfully. ”He may In selecting the trousseau, Fashion comes ahead of price.

Then she turn*'? ed and headed straight for whero Digger was trying to flatten him self out of sight in the grass. Bhg had let Bowser get almost at her heels. Blacky the Crow had heard the noise and now came hurrying up. Because he was orerhead and so looking dowm he saw Digger right away.

"In about a minute something** going to happen," he chuokled, his eyes shining with excitement. ‘*l wouldn’t miss this for the world.* Next story—How Smart Granny Fox wasn’t smart enough. PAGE 5
