The result of her too economical spirit was the breaking up of the home, the tragedy of divorce. Adaptability to altered circumstances would have surely averted this. HAIR "SNIPPERS" ACTIVE AT SUNDAY'S MEETINGS That Of Prom time Immemorial, the economical wlfa has been held up as the true Ideal of womanly goodness and virtue, and. In company with the good lady of Proverbs, who rose so early and worked so unneces sarily hard, has been eternally and with a most tiresome persistence cited as the real model. But tho reverse side of the picture Is seldom shown, and recently a sad caso of It was noticed. A llttlo clrl. whn unnlil 9i haste keen a sweet little girl, but for ono fault. She was "dcsperatelj" eco nomical. Every little rag about the house she hoarded for dolls' clothes, every Sat urday nickel she save, and even candy whs laid by for a future occasion. Oh! tho pleasures of life that that little girl mlssedl I As sho grew up, the other children C rather shunned her, for she gieu harder Ji" as this spirit of economy developed with Jt tho years. T Then .she met a man. who fell In love with her, and they were married. And at first they were happy. For he was poor and struggling, and she was a good, economical wife. But as tho years slipped by, his Income grew and grew and he wanted Ms wire to pause only an occa ;f slonal pause and share his well-earned pleasures. But alas! and alack! Did he decide to take her to tho theatre, and take tickets for the best seats, she sat unhappily In their "box" or orchestra seats and urged the necessity for cheaper seats upon him. "Tom" sho would say. "we could have seen this piece, or heard this music, just as well from the amphitheatre, where wo used to go. Next time, we must go back there." If he took her to gay llttlo tete-a-tete dinners In town, he chose the best les taurunts, and indeed he could well afford to do so. But all through tho meal, that stupid llttlo wlfo was sadly counting the cost, and when linally the waiter ap proached with the check, she would pounce upon It before her husband, and .sadly sigh over Its amount. And then the Inevitable happened' Since his wife could not happily share his well- earned pleasures, since she utterly failed VllB h'tfrJ1 eg" m 1 ,6t ' Detectives In Great Crowd Hears Evangelist. DENVER, Sept. 13.-A largo squad of plain clothes men from police headquar ters mingled tonight with tho thousands who crowded Into the great tabernacle where Billy Sunday Is conducting his revival. The detectives were watching for members of a "snipper band" that has operated two nights at the taber nacle, with the result that four young girls, listening Intently to the evangel ist, lost their long lirnliR Despite winter-like Weather, the crowds attending tho three services at tho tabor naclo were the largest that havo ever heard Sunday In a slnglo day since the revival began, a week ago. Ten thousand persons heard the morning sermon, an equal number was present this afternoon and this ecnlng there were nc.irly 13,0u0. Even then there was an overflow, hun dreds standing outside the building In spite of the cold. Sunday delivered a general talk this moinin? and tills afternoon took for his subject, "The Time is Come." He declared the race had reached a point where evil and religion were engaged In a struggle which puts Christianity at stake and that only through a realization of the obliga tion the world owes to God could calamity be averted. He said there weie many peo ple In front of him who wanted to pr.iy, but did not know how, or weie afraid to be sepn In the act He declared he would act as proxy for these and asked If there were nny persons present who desired pra.er to b said for them. Immediately, hundreds of hands shot up In all parts of the building. Tonight, Sunday talked on the "Ten Commandments." tie --aid that there was not a whole one left In the lot that man had smashed them all.

"So sol" exclaimed his father, Mr. Southbreeze. "then we know exactly how you feel about it " "Yes you do!" declared Jimmy, with a great deal of energy for to tell the truth he was quite disappoint ed to find his father so calm. "I'll scare my mother, anywa," he decided and he meandered around to where she was resting under the eaves of the big barn. x "I'm tired of minding and duins things properly all the tune, mother " said Jimmy, "I'm going to do smiii' Ihing bad bad!" And Jimmy Mew the words out so positively that two little sparrows thought a storm must surely be coming and they flew awy to their nests! "That's all right. Jimmy, dear. 1 gtiess it's just the heat thai bothers you," replied Mrs. Southbreee placid ly. "You go ahead and do vhateer you like, and maybe you'll feel better " Oh, dear me, but Jimmy was angr ' If any one thing made him crosser thsm another it was to have Ins mother talk to him as if he was a weeny-tiny baby instead of a bi, strong, healthy breeze able to do things and take care of himself!

The baby birds thought he had come to help them and they wel comed him joyously; the sunbeams thought he had come for a frolic, the flowers asked him to stop and play. "No no no," shouted Jimmy Southbreeze, "I've turned over a new leaf I'm hunting something very bad to do no time to play today!" and he blew away as fast as ever he could. But they didn't believe him not they; they knew Jimmy! They said to each other. "Let's just wait and see what he does." And if you wait, too, you will hear all about it tomorrow. CLARA INGRAM JUDSO.W fnpyn right Correspondence of general inter est to women readers trill he irint i il in this page. Such lommuiiien tions should be addiessed to the Woman's Editor, Eieninf) Ledger. I havo sat here, pen In hand, for hours -here In my shabby lodging, with Its drnb w.ills and flaring gns jet, Its cheap furni ture and Its dreadful air of solltltde-and my heart Is so full of memories that I can scarce write! Ah! memories and old i egrets, 1 will drive you away tonight, and be the old light-hearted Ellen Adair once more. Away with failure and loneli ness! I must win out, I shall make good; this Idle dreaming Is of no avail. The rain Is dripping on the roof tonight a gentle, quiet rain, unlike the wild downpou rings of this strange, wonderful country and tho Bound of It on tho root takes me back to my little English village on the Sussex Downs, where life ran In as gentle courses ns the falling rain, and 1 was young and sheltered. Touth and happiness! Oh, the sheer music of the words! Yet there are greater things In life than these, and I am learning them now. For the old Ellen Adair was a child ish, thoughtless person, who vegetated In Iit quiet English village; and now, she Is learning a harder lesson, and In a new country, fighting a better and a worthier flsht. It seems years, Instead of a bare two months, since that sunny summer morn ing when I sailed away from Southamp ton dock with a big lump In my throat, my wordly all In my shabby trunk, ?10 tucked away In a corner of my shabby mourning frock, and a desperate deter mination to make good In the new and wonderful country to which I was going. What crowded experiences have Inter vened since then! and I, Ellen Adair, an English girl, young and strong, and ah! dear Heaven, still hopeful, am liiclng this new worjd alone. And the sheer lonesomeness of this rainy night is dtlxlng me to write the story of my life I feel and think like 40, but I am only 24 ami In the old cracked mirror opposite I seo a young face, with new, tired lines mound the mouth. But there Is added stiength and resolution there. I must beg'n my tale In earnest now, and awav with sentiment. In my life there can bf but little room for that. I am a worker, and must cease to dream. My childhood was a happy one, and, be ing happy, was uneventful. I was an only child, and in spite of much petting re mained comparatively unspoiled. How well do I remember those old happy days I In the English seaside town. My father. a country doctor, was so busy that I rarely saw him, but my mother was my conbtant companion, and I Idolized her. She was the kindly sharer of my joys and of my sorrows, a real friend and com panion. The tlrst break In my life was at the age of 13. I was sent off to boarding school in London, a quiet, unpretentious, middle-class fcehool, where for two years I was a pupil. But in that sheltered haven we saw but little of London life. Occasional visits to the opera were a wonder and a glory the myriad glittering lights of Shnftsbury avenue and Picca dilly, the crowds of beautifully gowned women and their conventionally garbed male escorts, the swarming taxis it was all so wonderful. Tho green beauty of Kensington Gardens or Resent Park was a favorite haunt for our afternoon walk, and I .shall never forget my first glimpse of the King and Queen, then Prince and Princess of Wales, outside Buckingham Palace looKed with her golden hair, blue eyes and delicate complexion! I fancied that shu smiled at us school girls, and we all loed her. But a shadow fell on these happy days. My father, the hard-worked doctor, died suddenly, bequeathing to my mother and me a mere pittance, and a little cottage ho owned In the south of England, In the heart of beautiful Sussex. There we took up our abode. I was barely 17 then. At first I found tho peaceful village life a little dull. But I soon grew accustomed to our quiet existence nnd mother and I vegetated happily there. Books, our piano and long walks on the Sussex downs were our hobby. Oh! the beauty of the rolling moorland, with its clumps of trees and th lnzy cattle resting beneath, Its hum ming Insect life and Its beautiful English flowers. For seven years these things al most satisfied me. I Eay "almost," for at time.- a vague longing for a wider liori.on would seize me, a vague longing for "one crowded hour of glorious life" bf-yond tho narrow negative happiness of mv present quiet existence.

SMART STREET COSTUME IN SILK AND VELVET but few, and most of theso were married. In our seven years there I had but one proposal of marriage. He was tho village apothecary, he sang In tho village choir, he squinted dreadfully, and I hated him! But I had Just one vestige of a love affair the year before mother died, when I was 13. At a neighboring cottage that summer nn .artist arrived. Not a professional artist, but an amateur one. Ho stayed six weeks, and he made a painting of our little cottage, with the roses nnd honey suckle clambering over Its whitewashed walls nnd peering Inquisitively In at the latticed windows. He thought It all beau tiful. Many a day ho took afternoon tea with mother and me In our small garden overlooking the rolling downs. I thought him very good looking. He was curiously attractive, tall and dark, with a certain odd Intonation In his deep voice. "Ellen Adair, you strange child," said he to me one day, "some day you will wake up and your soul will grow. You will not always stay here: one day you must learn the How beautiful she I realities of life. Live up to the highest always. You have great possibilities " I remember a strange thrill went through me at his words, and Just then a lark rose from a clump of bog myrtle nearby on the, moor and soared, caroltlng her heart out, to the very heavens It seemed emblematic of his words, "Live up to the highest always!" And tho artist man leaned back In hla chair and slowly quoted the great words of Browning: " 'The lark's on tch wing God's In his heaven, all's right with the world ' "Remember that always, little girl." said he 'When things go right, and when things go wrong God's In His heaven, all's right with the world!"

The autumn nnd winter suits displayed by tin- shops show a number ot features that stamp them dcllnltcly as tho product of the season. The plain coat and skirt that looked well from ye:ir to year Is a thing set apart for sports" wear. In this fashion era, and ab solute simplicity of cut and design is mo nopolized once more by the masculine sex. When the tide turns, however, woman will, no doubt, appropriate . whatever pleases her fancy In the tailored line. But now. the coat Is cut not of many colors, but with so many variations that It Is hard to know just when a coat is a coat and not the .upper part merely of the costume. Tho tush Is often the lino of demarca tion and the coat ends In a wide Daring skirt, that nt a distance resembles the tunic. In reality. It Is the redlngote adapted to present modes.

That this can bo nchloved without loss of tho practical Is well illustrated In tho street costumo ahown today, It Is a combination of silk nnd velvet, velvet for tho collars, buttons and ribbon sash, but It would bo quite as effcctlvo In sergo or cheviot. Tho basque, tho basque girdle tho scml basque i wo aro ringing 'tho changes, but tho motif Is tho same for morning, after noon and evening wear. Yet Its severity Is modified In almost every Instance to conform to modern standards. This gen eration refuses to bo bnckrammed and boned Into Immovability and a higher value Is set on supple muscles than on a bedke without wrinkles. Hero, tho basque Is buttoned down the front qulto plainly, but tho fulness that starts at tho sldo seam Is one of tlio Innovations of the present day modiste. Tho stiff high collar Bhows the trend away from tho low-necked blouse. Thcro Is a decided movement this season toward restoring the collar to Its place and to doing away with tho open-necked blouse. Here, happily, we have a compromise. It Is buttoned qulto high, yet enough of the throat la free for ease and comfort. Tho long Bleeve, that comes not only over the wrist but almost to the knuckles, li In evidence. It Is a dictate of tho fashion authorities from which thcra Is no reprlove for the prcsont. The saBh, that appears at the back or the side or front In nine out of ten costumes, Is a narrow ribbon affair In the illustration. It Is tied loosely and falls Into placo naturally over tho skirt proper and be low tho basque. There a Is particularly graceful adapta tion nt thn lunle.

Judging from tho model frocks ex, hlbltcd and from tlto costumes designed by tho shops for the general public, wo are "reluctant to part with the tunic. It has been on the carpet for so lonu that one wonders. Whether women en joy wearing something that dangles, a superfluity to the act of being clad, or whether it really Is becoming to tall and short and thin and heavy, Is a maU ter to bo decided In the futtlro when H has given away to something else. But the tunic Is hero In every shapa arid form. Perhaps one of Ha charm'' for the many lies In the fact that It can bo mado at homo by tho skilful amatour. The Illustration shows so effectively tho fashion notoB of tho season that It would mako an excellent model for th collcgo girl or oven schoolgirl. And It has tho advantage of being suitable for the classroom or tho street without chango or addition.

Vested nnd wnlstcoats of fur will mod ernize the old fur styles which this season are to be reincarnated. Tho caped vestea stylo Is exceedingly charming, nnd offers a wide scope for variety. A really handsome fitch cape was noted tho other day, not so full that It rippled at the waist line, but controlled In clever fashion by being Invisibly fastened to an under vest of glrdlcstylcd outlines made of Bcal. These capes, bo Important a part of the winter toilette of our debutants grandmothers, havo once moro come to tho front, and will hold a prominent plac all winter. A charming combination was accom plished with a melon muff of fitch trimmed with sealskin rosettes, and with a black Bcal bow of tailored dimensions adorning tho oval-shaped capo at back and front.
