a moving picture house, where for one

and was lost, for glimpsing a large poster.
"Hearts Adrift." I knew at once that was
a picture that I ought to see. I dropped
my nickel at the desk, the doors swung

In the dim. shadowy twilight was a

theme that Is enacted in a hundred lives.

An English love Tale
More than a year ago In England, when j
wild roses bloomed upon the Sussex
Downs, I saw the prettiest, freshest
courtship scene. Th daughter of the
great man of the place, tho village squire,
had Just returned from boarding school
abroad. She wus a lovely girl, unworldly
and unspoilt, her beauty with the texture
and the fragrance of an English rose.
Each morning early, while the dew was
on tho grass and everything was fresh
and clean and voung. the galloped on her
horse across the moors. Diana never
looked one-half so beautiful'
After a time I suw she had an escort
on these early morning rides. He was a
handsome, clear-eyed hoy. and In his
gallant bearing one could trace the long
Jlne line of noble ancestors from whom
he .prang. He sat hla horse as if he were
a king! I heard that he was studying

A great bush of wild roses grew on the
moor outside our garden, and one morn

daughter and the Boy. I saw him stoop
forward from the saddle and carefully
pull tho tiniest, whitest rosebud from
He pressed Its whiteness Just one mo
ment to Ids lips, then doffed his hat,
and with the courtliest air presented It
to her. "Please take it, It Is just like
you," said he.
"A rosebud, set with little wilful thorns.
And sweet a Krillih air can ma her."
I heard the girl laugh merrily, then,
on a sudden tp. "Why, Jim. .vuur
hand Is torn'" ahe said. In great con
cern. The Boy sm!!-d slowly, and I saw he
had tho kindubt even.
"A rosebud out of reach," aald he,
"will always hurt just di-i.ptra.tei. But

A JAPANESE LOVE TALE
Housewives who find the servant prob

somo consolation from tho fact that In
no country Is tho matter a perfectly
slmplo one. Miss Evelyn Adam, In "Be

some of the difllculties of keeping servants
in that country.
A lady In Toklo had a valuable servant
of somewhat mature years, who rejoiced
in the poetic name of "Oharu San" the
Honorable Miss Spring. One day at tea
time, Miss Spring did not appear. The
kitchen was deserted, the kettle was cold;

FRENCH ART GIVES
RARE CHARM TO
GIRL'S DANCE FROCK
Free From Sophistication of
Dinner or- Ball Dress, but
Marked by Premeditated
For the girls who arc neither "out" nor
"In," nnd who go to almost ns many
dances ns their elders nnd betters the
dnnce frock should bo chosen with par
It should not have the sophisticated air
of the dinner dress, or the ball dress, but
Us simplicity should be of the premedi
tated kind, and not the accidental. I
It Is because the French dressmaker '
has felt the same "Joy of creation" that
Inspires tho artist or tho sculptor that
Paris has becoino a Mecca for lovers of
A frock must be a picture to realize tho
Ilrcnch conception, happily harmonious In
scheme of color and symmetrical In out
line. They take an almost childish delight
In dressing euch ago not merely appro
priately, but In Idealizing It, and deck
ing It out Irt tho trappings thut will pro
claim Its exact status so that nil who
run may read.
Tho Parisian conception of the stylo
suitable to the "Jeiine flllo." Is to array
her In a way that will typify all that'
there Is of freshness nnd youth, and to
enhance tho charm that Is borno by those
that are still "unspotted of tho world."
Tho dress shown In tho Illustration Is
designed from the Parisian point ot view.
In treatment and In the color combina
tion It Is essentially French unmistak
ably a young girl's frock, with rosebuds
to symbollzo tho ago.
It Is made of the softest taffeta, n
taffeta that has so much In thd way ot
sheen nnd shadow that It Is easy to
mistake It for a changeable silk.
Tho color Is blue, tho faintly turquoise
bluo that has a charmingly artless look
when It Is combined with pink.
To get Just the right shades of the
two colors, the delicate nuance, Is an
achievement dear to the French soul.
The bodice Is very girlish In design,
but the fact that It Is sleeveless pro
claims It a creation of the present year.
The wide skirt announces this fact
also, following ns It does n tendency that
seems to swing the full reactionary dis
tance of the pendulum of style.
Tho bouffant appearance that Is now
so desirable Is greatly Increased by tho
ruflle at the edge of the tunic and at
the foot of tho skirt.
The spot of pink necessary to the effect
of the bodice Is established by the clus
ter of rosebuds that Is fastened Just
above tho girdle at the left side.
Tho little bunches of roses that are
placed at intervals above both ruflles re
tstablish tho harmony mado by the two
Slippers and stockings that exactly
much the shado of the dress arc an
important detail of the costume.
They are more youthful and for that
reason more appropriate to the Idea ex
pressed by the dress than slippers of
bronze or black would be.
It is by the accessories and tho details
that a dress succeeds or fails.

Lop-sided Logic Husband Asserts
To th Editor 0 IHi U'oman'a Page, Evening
Madum Your last ovenlng's article on
a wife's dull round of household duty
strikes m as a piece of top-slded logic.
Too many women espect their husbands I
to symp4thle vocally with all their daily
household trials, forgetting that he In
turn considerately shields her from a
dai:y recital of the many small annoy
Mii that disturb his business life
throughout each day. Even tho larger
troubled he usually keep to himself, try-
1 .HE in his own way to solve them, and
tne seldom hears of them, unle.s tlfty
grow so large us to vitally affect their
household economics and mode of living.
That the wife should want to divide
h-r difficulties with ner husband, while
b in turn tries to shield her irom learn
ing uf hi, is far from reciprocal and
certainly not conducive to the greatest
matrimonial felicity. His realization of
her troubles is shown by the fact that
he does not ask her to sharo his. His
appreciation of her work is shown by
tha pride he tabes in his vvifo and hit,
home, and by the determination with
which he faces hi- daily problems, thu
smallest one of which Is mur-i sorious

I learn that business men nro generally
divided Into two classes, ono tho detail
man, tho other the largo plan man or
executive. Sometimes a man combines
tho qualities of both groups, but Generally
ho belongs distinctly to one or the other
Now tho detail man Is tho ono who
carries out orders. He Is responsible for
thu thousand and one details which make
up the day of that particular business.
He does not plan for next week or next
month or next year. Ho docs what he Is
Instructed for a very small period In ad
vance without question, without Initia
tive, and without using any creatlvo abil
ity. The "largo plan" on the other hand Is
tho one in whose brain originates the
general policy of the business', the plans
and Ideals toward which the business
shnll work and the larger results not only
for next week, but for years ahead. Ho
nppi relates the valuo of detail and knows
nil details thoroughly, but the blggor Idea
in his mind is his business In nil Its de
partments nnd ns a whole. Without his
creatlvo sense and his Imagination there
would bo no business, and on him the
burden of responsibility falls.
Now I have often compared home-making
to business. If this Is true, what type
of woman shall direct the business of
home-making? Shnll it be the detail or
the large plan woman? I think you will
agree with mo when I say that the bulk
of women home-makers fall now Into
tho detail class. They perform schedules,
they do a great deal of heavy work, they
spend unlimited time doing Infinitesimal
small tasks In housework, but do they
over approach the breath and viewpoint
of the large plan executive In business?
I find very fow women and mothers
who see further ahead than the present
week or month. Their marketing Is done
on the dally or at most weekly plan. Their
accounts nro kept hnznrdly, with no Idea
of a future end ov a plan ten years olf.
When they buy equipment they do not
consider It a permanent Investment, but
a present expenditure. They arc tied up
in a mass of detail nnd believe that home
making does, not offer them the oppor
tunity to use the creative executive and
more broadening qualities which1 they
think they possess.
I deplore this because the detail man
or detail womun Is never as great as
tho large plan Individual. It Is seeing
only in tho present and being smothered
In a mass of dally detail that prevents
stability and development for the high
est kind of family lite. Tho mother who
spends unnecessary sums nnd time on
Susie's hair ribbons is not thinking as a
rule of practical plans for Susie's college
education. The woman who buys what
she wants and whoso expenses are not run
on a budget plan Is the woman who Is
extravagant and who Is partly responsible
for the high cost of living. The woman
who Idolizes a fancy guest room nnd yet
has no placo In her homo for the develop
ment of her boy's ta3tc for manti.il train
ing or electricity Is not tho large plan
Tho successful business man Is al
ways the large plan Individual first. Hu
must and does know details. But it is his
visions and Ideals which create and build
thnt business to sucess. Tim ,in..r,.i

MY LADY'S COIFFURE
The trade In human hair Is a big In
dustry. Italians easily take the lead
in this traffic, the main source of their
supply being obtained from the peasant
women of Italy, Dalmatla and Switzer
land. Several times a year these human
hair merchants send their agents around
to collect supplies, which nro usually
Immense, for hair-growing Is cultivated
on a very large scale by these women,
and yields a good remuneration to tho
producer. Two crops of hair a year, and
looking nono tho worse for tho loss. Is
not extraordinary among these peasant
women. Half the hair at tho back of tho
head Is shorn off, tho remaining half being
drawn over tho exposed part and dressed
In such a manner as only to bo de
tected on very close scrutiny and by
those experienced In the trade.
The cutting of tho finger nails Is one
of thoso little tasks from which we are
rellovcd only by tho grave. It is com
puted that their average growth, In sick
ness and in health, Is one-thlrty-second
of an Inch n week, a little more than an
Inch and a half a year.
This ruto of growth, however, Is not
the Bamo for all the fingers, the thumb
and tho little linger being the ones whose
nails grow more slowly than the others,
whllo the middle linger Is the fastest of
tho lot. In summer It has been ob
served that they grow quicker than In
winter, and somo authorities hold that
the nulls on the right hand lengthen
more rapidly than those on the left. In
either case thoy grow four times as fast
us the nails on our toes.
A SCHOOL FOR LOVERS
For somo time , Munich has had Its
"school for lovers" they call It tho
"Hochschule dcr Hlcrat3wlssenschaften,"
but It Is" not nearly so formidable as Its
name. At this scntlmentul seminary the
student Is taught all the secrets of love
and wooing; the dealt able qualities ot a
life-partner; how to create the best im
pression and how to outwit rivals; the
proper time and method of proposing, the
mysteries of the wedding day; how to
make the most of the honeymoon, and
so on. Thu school, we understand, is a
great success, and Justifies Itself by a
brilliant array of results.
The guests at the table were discussing
"I lived on eggs and milk for two
months," remarked one lady, "and gained
"And 1." taid a gentleman, "lived for
over a year on nothing but milk, and
gained "a weight every day "
"Mercy!" came tho chorus. "How did
ou manage to do it?"
Tho gentleman smiled. "I cannot say
that I remember," Jie replied; "but I pre,j

The most famous example of kisses
that have caused death Is furnished by
the story of tho sprightly young Duchess
of Gordon, who raised so many recruits
for tho famous Gordon Highlanders. In
tho early days of the regiment recruiting
was very slow, but the Duchess attired
herself In tho teglmcntal colors, and mado
a tour of the various markets and fairs,
offering to each recruit a guinea and a
Most of the recipients paid for tho kiss
with their lives. No sooner was tho regi
ment raised than It was sent to fight the
French, and In tho first engagement In
which tho Duchess's recruits participated
there was a loss of 300 killed and wound
ed. All the right flanking compnny was
hit save one, and he, curiously enough
did not happen to bo a recipient of tho
young Duchess's kiss. He was a cannlo
Abcrdecnshlro man, and for an extra
guinea ho sold his right to another per
son to a kiss from the Duchess's ruby
Tho Gordon Highlanders nro fighting in
the present war with tho samo magnlll

distinguished that most gallant regiment.
TREATING DAMP ROOMS
Blocks of camphor dispersed In nit cor
ners of damp rooms in a new hotiie will
effectually banish damp In a very short
time, even when fires have proved Inef
fectual. Thoy should bo simply laid on
paper, or on tho baro shelves of a damn
room or linen closet. The blocks grad
ually decreaso In size, and when they
finally disappear should bo replaced until
their purpose Is served.
