ETTY GREEN in a striking Inter
view in The World puts a Urge
part of the blame for the hard
FIxt times on the women of America
U All they live for N says Mrs
E d Green is clothes the latest shape
in hats the newest fangled skirts
The modern mother Is raising a nation
tion of spendthrifts More men are
driven to dishonesty by the white
hand of woman stuck all over vith
jewels than by their own love of
horses rich food and good times It
The women of America live for other things besides money
and luxury Moralists told sensational novelists to the contrary they
still cultivate a number of old fashioned virtues They are unquestion
ably extravagant as compared with the women of other nations But
with what other women may they properly be compared Where else
In the world do women have so much money to spend as in the United
States Where else do husbands and fathers provide so bountifully
> It is only natural that the unexampled prosperity of the nation
should be reflected in an increase of household expenditure in costlier
clothes jewels and articles of personal luxury Women have taken their
1 cue from the men The clerks wife who has seen her husband become
1 a bank president or develop a retail business into a wholesale has adapt
ed her wants to her new means The plumbers wife makes the clothes
1 she wears correspond to the unions higher wage scale
Extravagance is our national sin and it must be admitted that w m
en aid and abet it In all ranks of society a passion exists for display
I and for rivalry in dress and in the pursuit of pleasure The wife of the
clerk strives to outdo his employers wife and the result is too often dis
I astrous Prudence and thrift give way to the whim of the moment
t the small margin of savings is wiped out and with the first breath of re
I verses comes bankruptcy or defalcation

Mrs Greens rebuke is timely If our spendthrift habits are to be
corrected women who have done most to encourage them should begin
the reform It is not to be expected of them that they will imitate the
frugality of the German hausirau or develop the thrift of the French
1 women whose rainy day hoards pay off war indemnities The example
of the wife of the American multimillionaire who wore a hat four sea
1 sons is not recommended to them
i But between rigid economy and wild extravagance there is a golden
It mean of mod ition which they may follow not only to the advantage
i of their husbands business but to the inestimable benefit of the nation
To pay more attention to the home bank account and less to bonnets will
r be a better guarantee against panics and sudden reversals than gold im
portations and an emergency currency They have no panics in France
Back of the nations credit and the foundation on which it rests are the
small savings of the people accu
mulated through frugal manage
I ment by the women
To provide a similar margin
Y of safety for this country would re Ql 4 f
I quire only a tithe of the selfdenial
I practised in French homes Ameri +
can women have had their full
share of American prosperity No y °
appeal they have made to their hus
bands purses has been refused As
the chief beneficiaries of that pros W
perity they should do their part z
to put a stop to the money waste which is endangering its continuance

Gus Takes a Short Day Off in Hoboken From His Saloon
and Comes Back to New York Strongly Opposed to Vacations
By Roy L McCardell
H ID you have a good time whll you was away
f D1 asked Ous the proprietor of the corner cafe
Sure said Mr Jan tying stonohly to square
c i himself with the thuught of how much money his dismal
two weeks away from scenes and people he was used to
v w s had COAt him
+ a This thing of these vacations Is no good said Qua
t sullenly You go way and Harugle go way and a lot of
A a other customers of mine and to places where they cant
il get a drink on Sunday like Atlantic City and It makes
b business bad for me Aint I here Do Igo away on such
r a foolishness Then why should my customers go away
and make bad buelnsEs for me what
Mr Jarr had nothing to say In selfdefense except to
WrGMOCAnaek murmur ftebiy that Ous should keep his shirt on
Gus dlfpla > bd every intention of doing this and he likewise turned around
land picked up a high lint of an ancient vintage on the back of the bar
j Where are you going asked Mr Jarr sulkily for he was beginning to
resent GUIS Intimations that customers of the cafe were guilty of lese nujeste
1 In taking n vacatljn
I Im going by Hoboken said Gus Im taking a day off Ton better come
along and get teaohed something
What will I be taught asked Mr Jarr
They are having a reform In Hoboken and my fatherinlaw Is going to
talk a speech about It In the Turnhnlle Summer Garden
I What agitation for a better way of living stirs classic Hoboken asked
Mr Jarr
I Dont you call Hoboken any of them names said Gus Its a good town
and my father In law Is a leading feller In an association that has a German
name you wouldnt understand that Is to stop the bar maids
thought the bar maid was a thing of the past In Hoboken said Mr Jarr
So It is said Gus with a cunning look there aint any bar maids any
more In Hoboken except maybe some lady there will help her husband on a
Saturday night when the North German Lloyd has paid off But it Is now
political times and in Hoboken they want to holler for some reform they al
ready have got to keep from getting some reform maybe they dont want
That sort of thing IB done by the politicians in more towns than Hoboken
said Mr Jarr
Tea said Gus and that Bartenders Union Is getting InfluwentchuaL
What asked Mr Jarr
lafluwentchuaJ repeated Gus pityingly thats a word what means you
ere on the ohob and fellers better do what you say er they got a permit re
woked or something
Oh I see said Mr Jar Let us then to Hoboken
Well we cant stay long said Gus I got a new bartender and he hears
me Insult my customers because Im an old friend and he thinks he can do It
Arriving at the Turnhalle In Hoboken Mr Jarr was Introduced to Gull
fatherinlaw a jolly old German who proceeded to climb on a table and make
his speech
Ladles undt ohentlemen citizens of Hoboken and their friends he began
Hes a foxy old feller said Gus admiringly and knows how to plates
everybody with words
Idt aint no use to talk about this continued the orator because you
all know about It and Fritz Kocgel IB here w ot h with the new brewery and
says you shall all have a drink mlt him
Now well get back to New York said Gus after they had sampled several
and you can see that while Hoboken Is for reform it aint going to vote for
Hughes for Governor
Mr Jarr mid he felt sure Hughes wouldnt get a vote at the terminal town
of the McAdoo tunnels I
When they arrived at GUIS place somebody had thrown a rock through the
window and a large crowd had collected
There you see said Gus despairingly this Is why I dont take no vaca
tions That new bartender has Insulted a stranger and my winder Is busted In
I wish I could get one of them bar maids yes
Why dont you said Mr Jarr as they hurried Into the disordered establish
My vile and your rife wouldnt M me said Gus Then he kicked out the
new bartender and sent around for the glazier
