Girls Who Cannot Love
Thero are, though It' sounds almost Impossible-
to' belfeve such a thing,- girls
whose hearts seem constructed Impervious
to love.
Such maidens find themselves Unable- to
love any man, no matter how attractive
he' may be to others.
The unfortunate part of It Is that men
XrelUently fall In' love with them, and
thn It Is that tragedies ore apt to" tako
tola.ee. For when men attempt to woo
these unresponsive ones, they tire dis
mayed ar-'d heartbroken to find that they
hrp absolutely unsuccessful. Their lady
Ipve has to confess that she la certain
that she will never be able to feel affec
tion for them.
The girl Is not to blame. Unkind per
sons may aay that ahe Is cold-hearted
nnd only capable of caring for herself,
hot that Is not necessarily true.
She Is not selfish nor cold, but she Is
indifferent. Indeed, she may be so kind
hearted as to agree to- marry her sweet
heart because she pities him: but she
may never learn to love him. fnr nit time.
00; the experiment. Is a dangerous one.
Sometimes It ends happily,- for mar
riage teaches a girl her own heart often
for 'the- first time,, and Indifference turns
elpwly Into deep and lasting lovo. Then
all' is well.
To Clean a Kitchen Table
When a table top Is very dirty and
Stained, sprinkle .a good handful of com
mon; salt over It, and scrub with hot
water and soap'. This takes out all the
Btaliis, and whitenathe table splendidly.
The Week-end Guest
The visitor over the week-end !s a
common occurrence nowadays, although
she was practically unheard of before the
Inst year or so. Thero are a great many
ways of making her feel at home, and
the key to them all Is Informality. A
certain amount of Informality Is a sav
ing grace for tho busy hostess, but a
guest should remember to be obliging as
Tho visitor's room can bo made very
attractive. Have her suit-case brought
upstairs Immediately and have her good
gowns hung out on hangers to keep them
"""' Kownga -mussea" look. A travel
ing brush should be at hand to brush her
hat and suit, etc. If you have a con
servatory place some cut flowers around
the room. Nothing makes one feel more
at homo than, these llttlo touches. '
A large Jar of clcanslm? m-nm nia4
on the bureau where the guest will see
It, will be very much appreciated. You
know how soothing It feels after a long
train rldo. and how beneficial to tho
ologgcd-up pores. A good-sized roll of
.."nun uuiunK, ueci with a pretty bow
or. satin ribbon, looks very attractive on
the dressing table, and IS much cleaner
than the soiled lamb's wool puff.
You can gel cards now which match
the silks used to decorate milady's
boudoir. They varo large, like a picture
frame, and -printed on them In gold' let
ters is the hour for breakfast, lunch,-dinner,
telephone calls, orders for the maid,
and a place for remarks by the hostess.
These aro most attractive arrangements,
and the Idea Is positively unique. Any
hostess who has used one will appreciate
the trouble It saves all concerned.

Selfish Unselfishness
A Warnlngr to Mother. w
There are three kinds of unselfishness.
The flrat of these Is a conscious unsel
fishness; tho second Is sb In -a lesa de

often Is, Unconscious of Itself altogether.

sometimes sacrifice themselves thus, un
til all disagreeable tanks are- handed
over to them by the children as a matter
of course. Aa a rule, however, It Is the
women who nro tempted In thla way.
For a woman. It la so Ucllghtful to feel
that she Is everything to her loved ones;
In hear them any that they would be

It really conic to this that unselfish
ness, like true love, must seek tho high
est good of others that and nothing
else; must bo willing to give up, If need
be, some of Its own "dear delights," and
even seem to choose the little pleasures
and indulgences which it would so gladly

smaller, pieces, Is used more frequently
thaft the percolator.'
Morning coffee used to be conjured up
In one's Imagination by an ugly granite
pot and something that was alwaya boil
ing over, resulting in messy grounds and.
discolored utensil. Sometiniea the coffee
was good, mqro frequently It was bad; but
now guesswork has. been eliminated and
there Is ho exctiso for having poor coffee
If wo use one of tho ninny kinds of per-!
colators seen In electric shops.
One particularly good model, pot-shaped
In appearance, has the. heating disc .di
rectly under tho top, and will actually
make cofteo In 0 seconds from. the time
the water Is boiling. This device Is, like
many of the best clectrlo table devices,
fitted so that the healing, disc and utensil
can be clamped together. This not only
saves accidental tipping over, but, aavea
waato heat because the clamp brlnga the
bottom of the percolator or other utensil
In close, direct contact with the heat.
Another table device for "push-buttton"
cookery la the much-used toaster. And
Mix intent ImDrovement here Is one which
makes the toast turn Itselfl What more
Is left' for human hands? The advantage
of. thla detail Is considerable when we
realite how awkward It was to get the
hot toast from the other models of toast
ers and turn It. Many indeed are the
smalt table stove which come fitted with
different utensils, either a small kettle,
a grill, or a saucepan. One charming t

colator Is used with thla set breakfast Is
only a matter of momenta, and we can
steal with comfort a half-hour'a tr
sleep from the time usually required to
prepare breakfast
The chafing dish, which was not n
tlrely satisfactorily operated by alcohol,
can bo made a permanent fixture of tha
table by the aid of the push button.
One of the newest models Is copper
finished, capable ot being used wltn
three grades of heat low, high and
medium. Tho aamo clamping device la
used ' herd as was spoken of above,
which gives the maximum efficiency.
With such a dish It Is possible to pre
pare moTo than frivolous suppers, Quito
a serious meal, Indeed, can bo prepared
by Its use, and If supplemented by per
colator nnd grill wo can cook na we cnt
nrd be sure that foods will reach us pip
ing hot. '
All of the newer push-bulloli utensils
are very well finished. Indeed, utenBlls
of ho other kind are finished so welt
nor of such attractive shape as the new
electric devices for table use. Either
In nickel or copper they give a touoh
of "high light" to tho plainest table.
Their case of manipulation and the)
electric method of cooking, which elimi
nates alt smoko and odor, cannot but
appeal Increasingly to discriminating
homemakers. Electric cooking with
large range and stove may not be en
tirely practical aa yet, owing partly to
the cost of current, but the cost ef op
erating any ef tha table devices Is aa
small -a to be almost negligible In tha
monthly bill. If you're thinking of n

Cepyrtsht, 1014, by Mrs, Christine SYedertoay
The car waa crowded. Feople swerved
tnadly- from side to aide as It rounded
icorner. or ahot wildly forward when
the new matorman stopped with a Jerk.
Tho fact that he was a new hand did
T0t deter him In his efforts to give the
passepgers a good time. Life on a trolley
during the dullest houra Is far superior
tor a button factory In Its .wildest mo
ments. ,
Two nicely dressed girls occupied a
Bide seat, and were entertaining -their
tamllng1 friends by a dialogue.
"Yes, Indeed." said one. "you ought
to- hear .her tell Jim Carter where to get
off. She said that she had plenty of
other fellows, and If hla mother didn't
want hlni to go with her, and he wasn't
man enough to do what he pleased, he
needn't come around."
"Ellen Jones has an awful nerve, any
how. Why, ahe got two dayB off from
her boss because sho waa sick, and, mv
dear, I, saw her down In the city both
"Did you know Catherine JaokBon had
to. go to the country to live? Yes. too
pm. snera got consumption, sure. Why.
last time I saw her I thought she
would die on her feet'
Further conversation waa Interrupted
by another Herculean effort on the part
of th motorman to teach the car to
leap. The Interested paasengera. spell
bound by the .scandal, teetered back even
tually, to hear tha thrilling finish.
"Well, ypu know her two brothers and
a sister died of It and Mary looks as
If ahe had It too. Ge. I'm glad I turned
Dick down. I'd have had a fine life,
shifting for myself. Not a one of them
has a dollar in the world. They Uva
from .hand to mouth."
Women talk like this In the street
cars every day, and this Is no exag
geration. Family affairs, names, busi
ness secrets, ailments, and all other pri
vate matters are fairly retailed to- the
public Not long ngo. a crowd of matrons
got on a car and sat opposite a young
girl nnd her escort. For the rest of the
Journey they cheerfully discussed all the
obstetrical horrors which came within
their knowledge, naming every single
mother and doctor. Well known surgeons
were criticised, and their medical stand
ing questioned. The young lady opposite
was very much embarassed, Indeed. It
was a sad effort to pretend not to hear,
for the voices could bo heard all over
the car.
The -woman who makes a point of criti
cising every passenger who enters the
car Is another common example.
"Look at that young man. He actually
looka aa .If he dripks. Too bad, he's so
young, too.
The poor victim In question may have
been ill or sleepy, or any number of
things, but he has to stand the branding
of a loud-voiced, curldus woman. Watch,
aome day, when you find your dally rldo
uninteresting, for the types described.
Don't, discuss your affairs In the car,
and don't discuss the affairs of others.
Talk about tho "ads" or tho weather;
Umay be stupid, but It's much safer.
With the season well advanced arid at
a time the different features of the
autumn models exhibited at the openings
of the French housea have gradually
merged into a composite and established
a definite style, the original sllkouettea
still remain and are as far apart as the
What Parisian women wear usually
establishes the mode for Americans and
the world in general, but the world Is
now left to Its own resources.
It Is reported that there Is no social
life In Paris, and that the society columns
lri newspapers are replaced by war news
and Hats ot the killed and wounded.
But, although the Influences of the war
aro far-reaching and affect this country
whlchtver way one turns, clothes must
be designed and made and worn as usual,
with Individual taste determining the
choice In the absence of a fixed mode.
The Illustration today shows a coat of
distinctive cut, and one In which the In
fluence of the Russian blouse Is para
mount Tho plaits differentiate It, how
ever, Irom tho simple blouse, and the belt
is run through the plaits In a decidedly
original way. Novelty buttons fasten the
coat at throat and waist, and the almost
inevitable accompaniment of fur banding
Is seen at th'rout and wrists and also at
the lower edge of the coat
The skirt, of which little Is to be seen.
Is made of one of the new developments
of velveteen or volutins. These materials
cannot be too highly commended. The
textUro Is beautiful, the colors are won
derfully soft, tho wearing qualities are
undisputed, and, In addition to all thla,
tho warmth Is far In excess of the weight
It Is lighter In weight than many serges.
School frocks are very attractive when
they are developed In some form of the
woolen velvets. Simplicity of cut has far
more style whero a girl of what the Eng
lish call the "flapper" ago Is concerned,
and velveteen needs little or nothing In
the way of trimming.
'I lie suspender dress, which haa been
revived and which fa very appropriate
for achool wear, la a good model for the
woolen velvets. A skirt with a few
gathers attaching It to a yoko or a half-
yoKe, or a circular skirt depending from
bands of the material that atart at the
walat In front, cross over the shoulders
and fasten at the waist line In the back,
constitutes what Is known as the sus
pender frock.
It can be worn with a white cotton
blouse or a simple silk Bhlrt of the wash
able kind. A plaid blouse that harmonlrea
with the color of the aklrt can be In
cluded In the list and makes a pleasant
When the school . girl needs a party
cape, one of velutlna could be made at
home at the cost of comDarattvclv f.w
dollars. With the vogue for fur banding
outstripping every other vogue in popu
larlty, even the domestic cat has ndt been
apared, bo that fur, of a sort, Is within
mo reacn or mo multitude.
And while the lineage of the fur may be
doubtful, its appearance, Its surface quali
ties are very attractive.
There are numerous parasites In the
animal kingdom, because It Is the order
of nature, but the human parasite usually
becomes so from choice. Her actuating
principle Is something like the old say
ing about Its "being cheaper to move
than to pay rent" In other words, she
prefers to accept the hospitality, enter
tainment and anything else she can get
from others to paying for them herself.
The summer usually brings out the so
cial grafter. She begins to fish for week
end Invitations. During the winter she
can work her men friends for theatres,
dinners, dances, etc., and save her own
pocket money. Dut when the warm
weather cornea and tho men begin to
flit away to the seashore resorts for their
vacations, the situation requires careful
"Why, Irene, I'm so glad to see you.
f hear you're very busy packing to go
away to the shore. You're a lucky girl
eacaptng all thla heat and horror, and
enjoying cool sea breezes all summer. I
certalnly'envy you think of me when you
en In the water. I adore bathing! Yes.
of course, I expect to run down for a
day at a time. Why, I'd be dellghtei
to. You're a dear to suggest it I'll
let you know when I'm coming."
Poor Irene! She will probably discover
that she has been taken in aa soon aa
her visitor arrives. She' ataya indefi
nitely, Bhowlng no signs of being any
thing but very much at home. Her plans
never coincide with those of her hoateaa.
She geta up late, after brealtfaat haa
been served to the family, and upsets the
cook entirely with her orders. The cham
bermaid Is delayed In her work as well.
She makes her own Individual engage
ments with the men of her acquaintance,
never thinking to tell them to bring an
extra for her hostess. After ahe haa
Btayed until another invitation looraa up
on tho horizon, ahe leavea, with never a
note of thanka to her nostess.
Another form of social grafter la the
girl who "breaka In" on parties, una
hears that bk friend la giving a party of
aome Wnd. Immediately ahe calla her
on the p'hone.
"Hello, dearie, how are you? I naven't
aeen you for ages. By the 'way, what
are you doing Tueaday nlght7 Oh, I'm
BOsorry. I wanted you to corns over
and All In at a bridge game with us.
You don't mean It! Well, I'll be tickled
to death to come. So aweet of you,"
etc. And thla girl knowa all along Just
who waa going and everything else about
the affair.
Thla kind ot girl Is not the exeentlen.
by any means but tho success of tho
whole affair depends upon the finesse
with which she does It If you have ever
been a victim, you'll understand.

For the Candid Woman
Have you ever had a girl friend who
waa painfully candid? She la one of the
kind who aays with an arch amlle that
ahe doean't like your eyea, because
they're too prominent, and that your
hair Is terribly straight and that ahe
hardly knowa why men find you at
tractive. This lsst Is added to make you
think that she means no' harm by her
The candid woman has the advantage
over her victims; they have no "come
back," because she is so sweet about
administering her bitter dose. You get a
new frock or hat, and when ahe' aees you
In It. she draws a long breath and pre
pares for the onslaught.
"Why, Gertrude dear, I never knew
you wore green. Better bo careful,
deurle, or It will make you look ter
ribly off colorl People of your com
plexion look sallow In green, anyhow.
Your hat Is a beauty, but the same thing
may be said of yellow. Now If you were
wearing a plain shade like navy oiue.
It wouldn't be halt ao conspicuous. Of
course, darling, I don't mean to criticise,
but I always say exactly what I think!"
No, criticism Is quite unnecessary,
after poor Gertrude has been reduced to
a mere pulp by this avalanche ot friendly
advice. Alt the pleasure of her new
gown has gone, and from that time on,
she feels uncomfortable. Every time she
puts on that particular costume the
"candid" words of her friend come to
her mind. Soon she begins to feel sal
low and off color, the hat becomes a
torture to wear, and It ahe can afford it,
she disposes of the whole costume in
sheer disgust. All the worse for her if
she can't afford it
Some women are naturally candid, but
the greater majority of them cultivate it,
for the benefit ot their fair rivals. Of
course, allowance must be made for the
weman who doesn't aim to offend, and
the kind, well-meaning soul who just
has a natural talent for putting her
foot In It
Somehow or other, human nature Is
.tho same everywhere, and an adverse
criticism, crudely put, will stick In one'a
mind a very long time. It all depends
on the coating with which you disguise
the pill. If you are' clever enough to aay
something nasty ln a nice way, .follow
the advice given concerning matrimony

Hints for Hanging Pictures
Strange to say, women seldom know
how to haqs pictures. They put them
ln the most unattractive places, either
In a dark corner or ln too strong a light
Another thing to be thought of Is the
subject of the picture Itself so many
women' entirely overlook this that the
result is terrifying. For Instance, never
put portraits of friends or relatives In
the hall or living room. It la not ap
propriate; these should be confined to
one's own boudoir or dressing room. You
can get bo many stunning reproductions
ot famous masterpieces done ln aepla,
dull gray or green, eto., that it Is posi
tively foolish to neglect them. A good
painting or engraving Is doubly valuable,
because of tha artist who conceived It
and the value of ownerahlp. There are
ao many studies that it is quite Impossi
ble to lay down the law, for Individual
tasto should always prevail ln selection
of pictures.
Hunting studies, sporting pictures and
even some comics may be used In the
billiard room. The vulgar postcard style
should be avoided, The printed maxims,
etc, you get ln a burst, of undue en
thulasm at the seashore- beoome positive
ly sickening after you have them around
a long ttme.
Never hang pictures over doors or win
dows. It Is an Insult' to a good picture,
and looka awkward. The larger pictures
should be hung so that the horizon line
Is five or Ave and a half feet from the
floor. Portraits should hang on a level
with the eyes when you are standing
The formal arrangement of pictures Is
best for tho amateur. That Is, the largest
picture should bo Jn the centre, on either
side ot the large clcture and allrhtlv ba-
low its centre a smaller one, and above'
and below still smaller ones.
