Eltm Adair Says Thai Woman Is Happiest When She
t ' Is Working.
TJfe )dj woman is Ihe unhappy woman.
Tjiire la'.ho-doiibt of that. "Satan finds
plenty of mischief for Idle hands to do."
,ond always will, Just so long aa women
Hang around looking for trouble.
The Rlrl who stays at home nnd does
nothing Is greatly to bo pitied. There Is
ft class of useful girl who stays at home
and helps her mother with tho work of
the house, but she comes outside the
category of tlnj Idle girl, for In honest
work sli justifies her own existence.
The Idle girl, on the contrary, Is the
drone- in the hive, and she Is shirking all
the responsibilities of life. Among the
younger married set this typo Is largely
tor be found. Buch n woman lives only for
so-called pleasure, and flits from enter
tainment to entertainment like some care
less butterfly, beautifully clad, but, alasl
The responsibilities of motherhood nre
not for her. She shudders at tho very
Idea of a family. "Such n trouble nnd
makes one old before one's time," she
says, dismissing the subject with a con
temptuous shrug. "I want to run around
nd have, a good time." ,
This attitude toward the serious side
of life brings Unhapplness Inevitably with
It. For the first few years of married life
an Indulgent husband may overlook a
certain amount of frivolity lit his wife:
but sooner or later utter disillusionment
will come to him, n disillusionment which
may prove the wrecking of his home.

With a girl to feel compassion Is to
bo dangerously near loving the object of
her thoughts.
With a man, however, the contrary Is
tho case. For In the mind of a man pity
Is very nearly akin to n certain con
tempt Ho may not be conscious of this
shado of contempt, but all tho same It
is there, and In time contempt surely
kills love. r
, That is because his chief quality Is
strength, nnd with strength a little hard
rieps for all kinds of weakness; but with
lier, tenderness and generosity mingle
with pity, and keep It sweet and gracious
and wholesome.
If she once begins to pity a man, n
girl insensibly Is drawn to caring for
Mm: her motherly Instinct Is aroused,
and sho begins to long to help and com

Then, with a shock, she realizes that
sho loves him tho only consolation for
which ho really cares.
Pity alone would not have induced her

did lead her gently down tho slopo until
he found herself taken In hand by love.

New Ways of Making Extra Money
New ideas for clever girls to turn Into
money are coming up every day. The
very latest of these is most original, and
paying, as well. The girl, or woman,
father, for she in about 35, who dlscov
red it told her friends, all about it her
self. ,
"Tou see." she said, "I always loved
children, and being left practically home
less, I decided to try to get into a day
nursery or public orphanage. Well, I
succeeded, but the salary was so small
and tho hours so long that I found I
couldn't stand the strain. Then I began
to look around me, especially at tho well-to-do
homes where there were one or
two children. It often happened that
these young couples wanted to go away
over a week-end or to spend their vaca
tions together. They wouldn't trust their
children to untrained servants, so tho
Uttlo excursions were banned, as they
could hardly go visiting with a tribe of
children along. So I had my card printed
aa a regular, official foster-mother. The
children always took to me right away,
and that was usually reassuring enough
Jfor their parent. A child's Instinct Is
seldom wrong.
"A good many wealthy-women who spent
There are many quaint old superstitions
concerning love that used to be practiced
long ago by lovelorn maidens.

lover's affection, she could ascertain the
truth by taking a bladebone of a shoulder

Ing may be slow In coming, but when it
does come, "not all the king's horses nor
all the king's men" can over make things
as they were In the first halcyon days
of the honeymoon. For no matter what
amends nnd promises may be made, there
will ntwnys be a lurking sense of disap
pointment In the husband's heart. He has
discovered that his Idol has feet of clay.
Ono of the leAdlnff fnrfnrs In (Iia hrftfe
Ing up of homes and tho present preva
Irnco of divorce Is tho Idle woman. Not
only does she successfully break up her
own nomo and happiness, but she extends
her unfortunate proclivities to tho hearth
stone of others, The taking away of
other women's husbands Is frequently
among her accomplishments, tor her
pent-up activities have to have somo
outlet, and It Is a curious fact that the
Idle woman alwnys tends to mnte trouble
wherever she goes.
Tho idle woman Is nearly always a
dreadful gossip, too. Hho slays reputa
tions at a slnglo word. Finally her mind
becomes so narrowed by the frivolous,
empty existence she leads Hint her sole
conversation consists of gossip and the
reuijiniK oi scandal among her friends.
Speaking of friends, the Idle woman
numbers few worthy of the name. For
friendship cannot exist with Insincerity,
and nmong a crowd of frivolous women
sincerity Is somewhat rare to find.
For the sake of her own happiness and
the happiness of those nround her, tho
Idlo woninii should strive to Interest her
sulf In something usoful nnd nbsorblng.

Proposals That Please
There is a right and a wrong way of
doing everything, and the Important mat

A lover can wreck all his hopes-and

nr foolish proposal.
What form of proposal then is pleasing
to the average girlT Surely, one with all
the lover's heart In It. She has no pitas
ure In granting a gift that does not seem
overvalued or intensely desired.
If a man asks her to marry him in
much the same tone as he would make a
trifling request, a girl is not likely to feel
either honored or flattered, ,
A proposal should show signs of anx
iety. It should be full of respect, and,
above all, it should take nothing for
It should take Into account the delicacy
and pride of a girl's nature.
The lover who Is too shy wins her eon
tempt Shs wouW rather he showed him
self a trifle masterful and inclined to take
her heart by storm.
The man who trembles before her pos
sible rejection does not please her aa
much aa the one who seems determined
to win her in spite of herself.
So that the perfect proposal Is com
pounded of two oppossd principles. "Be
held, but not too bold," and It 1 for the

'llllflSP Wiiiih iisr IhHiII
A warm discussion ranges In a well
known paper across tho sea as to break
fast, which ona writer dubs "tho hopeless
meal." Others, too, mnllgn it as the
gloomiest of tho day, a time ot growls,
frowns nnd curl-papers, when eating Is
dona from force of habit and not from
pleasure, and when pater becomes cross
eyed through dividing his attention be
tween the latest news from tho front and
an overboiled egg.
Is there something psychologically true
in tho statement thnt no man Is In a fit
humor to talk to friends before JO o'clock
In the morning? Or Is It that the break
fast per so falls short of that genial per
fection which we see In luncheon and din
ner? Which Is to blame, the person or
the meal? Tcrhaps we can stiaddlo tho
question by saying "both."
Too many persons allow only nybrlcf
Interval botween rising and that gulping
of food which Is dubbed "the break of
the fast." No matter how long the over
night fast has been there should be an
Interval of an hour botween rising and
eating In order for the appetite to become
wakened ns well as the body. It Is im
possible to be other than grumpy when
only half awake, and to try to eat In such
a condition is an Insult to our organisms.
Exercise, a brisk rub and shower, a
few minutes' practice with dumb-bells
would be as good as caviare to put us in
"tone" for breakfast. Against is Impos
sible to enjoy any meal and have It, in
turn, give us any benefit unless wo allow
sufficient time In which to eat It. Clear's
most tempting menu would arouse no
more enjoyment than our matutinal fried
egg If we had only 16 minutes In which to
eat It Time, conversation, above all
"atmosphere" can we not squeeie a
small part of these qualities so necessary
to gustatory delight into our much
maligned breakfast?
But to turn to the meal itself. Is
It not true that breakfast la the most
monotonous meal ot the day? And must
It be so? Why must we have the same
cereal, the same baked apple, and the
Invariable coffee? I know family after
family where, although other meals are
carefully planned, breakfast Is a routine
of Wheat,-why or Bathnuts or Qrapo-grlts,
the same omnipresent toast, indeed, the
very same egg, Just a little too hard.
Why not "change the films every day,"
and have Wheat-why one day and Qrapo
grlts the next? Certainly any breakfast
cereal will stand a chance of remaining
longer In our affections if we rotate It
with others. There Is such a wide var
iety to choose from all the prepared
cereals and then those like rice, hominy,
cornmeal, plnhead oatmeal, plain cracked
wheat, which are most nourishing and
comforting on cold mornings.
A fruit there must be, and those of us
who cannot afford grapefruit can And
solace In prunes despise them not' etsw

Banana Fritters
Ingredients: Half a pound of flour, half
an ounce of butter, a pinch of salt, two
eggs, milk, bananas, lemon Juice, Bitted
sugar, hot lard or clarified dripping.
Method: Break the eggs, separate the
whites from the yolks, and beat them
separately; put tho flour Into a basin,
stir In tho butter (which should be melted
Into a cream), add the salt and molstet.
with BUfilcleut warm milk and the yolks
of the eggs. Stir well, rub down any
lumps, und add the whites of tho eggs
which should have been well whisked.
Beat the batter for n few minutes. It
Is then ready for use. Skin the bananns
and cut each Into three or four slices,
squeeze over euch slice a few drops of
lemon Juice. Dip them Into the batter,
and fry in hot lard to a nice brown.
Druin each carefully. Pile on the dish
and shake over a little sifted sugnr.
Making a Fruit Pie
When making a fruit pie, such as
cherry, currant or plum (which makes
so much Juice In cooking), line the
bottom of the dish with a thin slice of
bread, leaving space for pie-cap. Cover
the bread with sugar, then put in the
fruit; cover with pastry, aa usual. This
will prevent the Juice from boiling over,
and be a great Improvement to the tart.
To Clean Velvet
Spots upon velvet may be removed by
lightly rubbing with a piece of rag and a
little benzine. Wipe afterward with a
clean rag, and In order to revive the pile
again, stretch the back of the velvet over
some boiling water.
