The Girl lo Whom This Letter Is Written Is a Jolly. Happy-go-lucky Little Stenographer, But Very Careless in the Spending of Her Hard-earned Dollars. My Dear Lillian I have Just received your letter, asking if I would lend you $5 until yournext payday, as you aro "almost broke, and have a partloulnr reason for wanUng a little extra monoy Juat now." You do not say anything about return ing the $10 Z lent you last month, nor do you make rash promises about repaying this sum; you merely a ay, "Please send It by return mall, and I will be grateful forever." I send the check herewith, but I can not help wondering to myeelf why you nro nearly "broke," and where nil your money rocs. For you ought to bo better oft thnn my other bachelor girl friends, because you have an allowance from home In nddltlon to your $12 a week salary, whereas many of them are not only "on tholr own," but are helping to keep a mother or an Invalid slater, aa well as keeping themselves. Where does you money go? I think I can mako a pretty good guess! OTou 9. I have known you for some time, and studied your character closely.) Moat of It Is wasted. It goes and you have nothing to show for It.- Thla is the sort of thing which happens: You set out one payday to buy a plain blue serge suit You know exactly the style of thing you want, and you have only Juat enough money to pay for It But on the way to tha store, a pair of earrings catches your eye. They are cheap things of the "braes and glass" type. But the card declares they are "equal to real emeralds, and set In double-washed Chinese gold," whatever that may be, and after gazing at them for soma time, you decide they will look very nice in your pretty ears, and so you go In and buy them. Then on the counter you notice a protty hatpin, also set with "emeralds" so you buy that as well. Then some cute little green bows for the neck tempt you, and a bright green girdle, with a tiny handkerchief bag to jinntch, and what could be more fitting than some tiny silk handkerchiefs of ex actly the same shade? "It will make mr blue serge look 00 smart, all these touches of bright color!" you murmur complacently. But. alas! when you reach the store where the suit Is to be bought, you dis cover to your horror that you are nearly $3 short of the required sum. So you have to wait for your new and fashion able suit, and go on wearing the old red dress whloh you are heartily sick of, and which "sweara" horribly at those bright green ornaments you have bought! But even then you have not learnt xperienoel Although you bare not enough money left for the blue serge, you have plenty to get the shoes. and stock ings which you need so badly. But you buy horribly oheap footgear, with a so called "fashionable" cut. Instead of sen sible shoes made of good leather in a sensible way. And you buy one pair of silk stockings instead of three pairs made of thicker and less expensive material than silk. When all your money is spent you have nothing useful to show for It. You, always seem to me to be dressed In odds and ends, or aa If you were arrayed for a fancy dress ball, where you were representing "Samples." And don't you think you spend rather a large proportion of your moderate sal ary cm what you can toilet necesstUea moat of which are not necessities at all? What about that tooth powder at 3 a pound? And that complexion cream at rt-M a pot. and the liquid rouge and the expensive halrwash? The beat aids to beauty are the cheapest. Common sense rather than money 'should be used over beauty culture. The much-advertised, overpriced toilet articles are generally simple, old-fashioned remedies disguised under very grand names. Let the wealthy lady of fashion buy them If she pleases, but the wist little stenographer keeps her money in her purse. Neither will she allow herself to be tempted by all sorts of Idle little fash ions which come into vogue for a few weeks, and then die out. No doubt you like to be the first In the offloe to sport the newest kind of tie or girdle, No matter whether a fashion is a beoomlng one or not. Ilka the boy In the soap advertisement, "You won't be happy UU ytra get ltl" I know, Lilian, tbat it Is the habit of many critics on. women's dress to com mend this buying of little trifles. They teach tbat a smart girdle or a lace collar will bring an old gown "up to date." Sometimes they do, of course, but more often they do nott And If you happen to keep accounts, and look over your bills, you will be surprised to And how many dollars these seemingly inexpensive trifles run away with. I writs with soma exptrtesa. on this matter, for I remember one year when poverty prevented me buying anything at all for personal adornment. Every quarter X earned had to be spent on food and lodgings. Even a yard of ribbon or n box of face powder was beyond my means. Luckily, I had a good supply of suits, plain hats and underclothes: end two or three tittle bits of real lace, ao I was still respectable, If shabby, at the end of that hard twelve months! And I went back to a Ufa at nnmparatlve luxury with this gained, knowledgel Half the things I had been spending so large a share of my salary os were totally u&neseMary, although la the old days I used to eay, "I simply must have them!

To Get a High Speed in Shorthand A Stenographer Writes T havo found that when taking dlo tatlon apeed may be obtained by writing only half-way across tho pago, thus making two columns of the writing." This stenographer has mads the same discovery that n number of fast writers have made. Some operators even go so far aa to take the "wide" 6-lnch note book and have It cut In two through tha centre, leaving two 8-Inch books. The secret of the added speed is In tha fact that an entire line of the smaller book may be written from a Blngle position of tho hand. Tho fact that tho hand shifts down a lino twice aa often does not im pair the time saving, since most speedy stenographers pull (,tho sheet up a line with the left hand while writing with the right. Instead of dropping the right hand a lino further down the page. Thus, with the shorthand book, tho writing hand never really moves from Its first position. Novel-reading in Office He ours "Jane has a dandy position In that of fice of hers!" cried a little typist envi ously the other dny. "She reads her novel and eats candy half the time! I went to see her the other day and I had to speak to her twice before she heard me. She was sltUng with her feet up, as comfortable as possible, read ing the exciting. new story In the Satur day Evening Post and chewing away at oandyl dee! I do envy horl Her job's a clnohl" A week later, when "Jane" was sud denly dismissed by her employer, tbe lit tle envious typist did not feel that her friend's lot was so wonderful after aU! For, through her own Indolence and fool ish neglect of her employer's Interests, the foolish "Jane" has lost her jobl This has happened to more stenogra phers than the ono mentioned above. Girls should take warning In time, then, and remember that the employer's interests are generally Identical with their own. Forgetfulness of this important fact gen erally leads to failure and ultimate dls missaL Don'ts for Stenographers Don't idle during business hours, but throw yourself heart and soul Into your work. Don't gaze out of the -window and pon der on that new hat you were wanting to buy. Don't bring out the little pocket mirror of yours and powder your nose contiau oualy In office hours, Don't write personal letters to your friends and steal your employer's time by so dolnr. Dent be constantly fixing ttiat new tit tle curt above your ear when you should be typing your employer's letters. Hints for Typists Jn addressing envelopes, never write the name of the town sad the Btato eo the same lint. Always use a separate line for the etate. This helps tha sorter) at the poatofllce and thus facilitates the quick delivery of the Utter, which Is what your employer wants. When erasing, use a pencil eraser first and then finish with a typewriter eraser. This makes a very dean erasure, for tbe pencil eraser takes off the first coat Very neatly. Paste a piece of coarse paper in the front of your notebook, and use It to gnarpen: your peaell point when they beoom blunt Kault tteie savins; and clearer notes. d t&'gt&t llA$ Gt&da BllliLdH Jt Hl '$ ?w tv.'.'i Haw JlPfl ' 'i'"' a -&ff ' ' EI9H J , W , " &. rfujaaay ,..

But the frook of silk or French serge Increases in popularity, and now that almost every one owns a top coat, ono can go from the house to the street without making a change of the house gown to the street gown. There are many pretty models for the one-piece frock, or for the dress tbat is separate as to bodice and skirt. And although the basque in its severe form had but short shrift, there are lingering traces to be seen In gowns of the moat recent design. Tho surplice bodice, with a natural ending at tho waist, or with prolonged ends that cross and fasten at the back, Is stilt a favorite, and a very pretty frock of this stylo is illustrated today. The ends aro draped about the waist and tied In a flat, formal bow at the back, as tho model's pose before the mirror shows. Tho skirt looks as If lt hod reposed on the shelf for Six or eoven years, for there is nothing new, nothing especially of to day In Its style. The shirring and cord ing aro old, but they ore always pretty and make a graceful, full eklrt. This frock is one that might be mado at homo with very little trouble. Even among the so-called modern women, of We'll Get on the Brighter Side Toll In the cities, and till the ground; The world is green and wide. And some of these days, when the world turns round, We'll get on the brighter side! Sow and reap, and work, and weep Fur the blessings that are denied; And some of these days, in the morn ing's rays. We'll get on the brighter side. Some of these days, in the thorny ways Win the lilies of joy abide; Tha birds will sing, and the bells will ring, And we'll get on the brighter aide.

Per Pound TEA THE HOUR the feminist, suffragette type, there nre oomo who own scrap bags, although lt is more likely to bo a scrap drawer. Tho collar and cuffs of the frock oould bo made from a scrap of white Bilk nnd a loose end of fur, without expense at the moment. Marabou, swansdown and ostrich feath er trimming are all good substitutes for fur banding, and they ore all In excel lent style. The greatest possible mistake that the girl of few frocks con make Is to choose a model with a pronounced cut and strik ing details that are too obvious to have nny lasting quality of style. The next mistake Is to choose the wrong color. Americans aro said to bo less sensitive to or less appreciative of color than the nations of an older civilization. It Is quite possible that they are less In the habit of analyzing their feelings. Occasionally a woman has a gown that she never tiros of, even when lt shows unmistakable signs of wear and tear. An artist could tell her lt Is because the color satisfies her, because lt la the right color for her to wear. Blade can be worn by women who are old or young, but rarely by tho woman at the age now designated as "danger ous." At that ago a woman needs every help that becoming color con give her. Not until age has whitened hef hair or softened her face should she wear black. Tho Indeterminate shades of colors are the ones to chooso then tho violets, soft blues, dull pinks of the ashes of roses kind tho shades, In fact, that are off the real prtsmatlo color.
