To enjoy one' work thoroughly ii half the battle for the salesgirl. Not
until a genuine interest Is taken in the day's business will it cease to become
mere routine and adopt a fascination of Us own. The business of selling can
, be made most engrossing and the clever girl who appreciates this fact and acts
upon it will soon make a good impression on her employer and work her way
, up to a more important position. But it should be remembered that all things
have small beginnings, and the girl at the bottom of the commercial ladder
must not foolishly imagine thai at one tingle bound she can reach the top.
. ,Do not despise the day of small thinas. Do the small thirms thorouahlv and

A Contented Salesgirl
It Is refreshing to hear from a girl
who seems absolutely contented with her
work. Sho writes:
Dear Ellen Adair rerhaps 1 have no am
tltlon: that may be so, but I havo been a
salesgirl for ten years and nm still qullu
happy nnd contented, 1 like the excitement and
hustle nnd am now earning SIS a week, which
I consider a pretty good salary. I would not
give up my work for any other business.
The Salesgirl
and Extravagance
Many department stores mako nn ar
rangement with their feminine employes
which Is very surprising. It Is, In short,
that a girl can tako her wages, or n
greater part of them, out In merchandise.
So that If a girl selects a hat or gown
which suits her fancy, or buys a now
handbag, she has thobo doductcd from
her pay. This Is convenient, but scarcely
It encourages a spirit of dcpcndcnco
and a certain extravagance, too. .Human
beings aro all alike, -sand the tempta
tion of pretty clothes Is very strong for
the salesgirl. When she finds out they
are apparently so easy to get hIio sel
dom gets them reasonably, Sho buys
expensive articles which aro not prac
tical. A natural talent for saving Is a bless
ing which very few women have, but
circumstances often require one to nc
qulro it. The salesgirl who Is tempted
to buy too many things will do well to
remember that they have to bo paid for
just the same, and that If her purchases
tiro cxpenslvo they will probably look
out of place.
A Smart Appearance
Useful Hints for the. Salesgirl
Tho general appearance of a business
woman Is' greatty conducive to her suc
cess, whatever ,fU'e particular lino in
which she be engaged. Sho cannot expect
people to look upon her as fitted for busi
ness if sho neglects her appearance to the
extent of looking slovenly A sales--woman,
for Instance, has no excuse for
having- Ill-kept nails, frowsy hair or a
soiled shirtwaist, liven if the store In
which she works requires her to wear n
sort of uniform, fslio can be fastidiously
careful about keeping ft spotlessly clean.
Tho business dress should have care and
attention expended on it, and It will look
good and last twice as long. If this bo
done. Never keep on tho dress you have
worn all day after you get home nt night.
This dress should be hung In an airy
placo and loft there for several hours.
In the matter of dress shields, a great
many girls think that if they buy one
pair and tack them In a gown, their work
Is done. Nothing could be more foolish
than this Idea,
The sensible girt buys several pairs of
shields at once, so that she will always
have a fresh change. The discarded pair
should be put In warm water and am
monia as soon as possible. If they are.
left to stand there for an hour or so,'
and then rinsed In clear, cold water, they"
will keep fresh, although they require
almost ccntlnuat care.
However, this Is the case ivlth every
thing that Is really worth while. The
things which take care of themselves,
If there are any, aro worth very little In
the end.
Possibly Take Up.

Modes of the Hour
There Is nn engaging simplicity shown
by many of the new dance frocks for'
young girts that seems more suited to
their years than the elaborate confec
lions, of the Immediate past.
It originated In Paris, hut tho New
Tork fashion tetegave It an Impetus
that Is Carrying It far beyond tho original
Intent. Certainly tho lustrous satins' nnd
the soft taffetas appear to greater ad
vantage when they are ntlowed lo fall
In folds and and ripples than they could
possibly do any other wny.
Tho little frock pictured typifies sim
plicity In bodice and skirt. Tho short
shirred bodice with Its shoulder straps
of tutla that extend over the arms and
the skirt, gathered at the waist line,
are very quaint, nnd would seem almost
archaic were It not for the nasurancc
that they are the nowest born of fash
Ion fancies.
Scallops, points and squares are often
a feature, of the straight-full skirt. Here
a narrow quilling outlines each scallop
and continues up tlio. sklrt In a. grace
ful curve nnd conceals Its 'origin or Its
end under n tiny bouquet of rosebuds
and leaves.
Tho frock presented Is carried out In
while, and completed by white sltppeis,
nnd stockings. There aro such lovclv
shades of pink nnd blue, nnd tho yellow
In favor now Is such a glorious colden
thing that tho return of a stylo that
will give a fair Held to the silks and
satins llnds a ready welcome.
So many of tho frocks designed nowa
days nro so entirely lacking In nny dis
tinguishing mark as to age, that the
youthfulne8s of these little gowns is In
Itself a charm.
The glitter of pallletcs nnd the opulence
of fur nro better left to tho young
matron, although the debutante has taken
pretty much what sho pleased and mndc
It hor own.
Tho voguo for flowers continues with
out a halt. ThCTvarlety Is Inilnlte, for
the shops show Innovations ns often
as the nvcrago person enters.
Thero nro many ways of placing them.
Tho ono by (lowers slipped through the
sunh or girdle, nnd affording tho only
contrast of color, still appears on xvery
beautiful gowns from good designers.
Sashes enntinuo to be worn at the
sldo, tho back or tho front, wherever
somo feature appears to bo needed to
complete tho gown.
A sash made of Hie satin- or silk of
tho gown, tied In M loose, popping bow
nt the back. Is one 'of tho prettiest ways
It can bo used. Tho sash tlell at tho
sldo contadlnl fashion has decided style
and sets off the figure effectively.
Silk Stockings as '
A Ch'ristmas Gift
With apologies to Sir Walter Scott,
"Lives there a woman with soul bo dead
who never' to herself has said, 'I'll get
sill: stockings this Christmas.' "
And it la qulto truo. Jinny a girl an
nounces calmly to her girl friend that
she wants silk stockings, and many an
other girl doesn't buy them until after tho
holiday season Is over. And do you blame
them? Undoubtedly silk stockings are
the most acceptable gift one woman can
glvo another. Ono Chestnut street Bhop
Is showing a wonderful assortment of
novelties Irr this line. ,
Ono very striking pair Is 'whlto with
large black cross-bars and blnck clocks.
Above the clocks the stocklngB aro dec
orated with open-work, stripes, Theao also
(Come in block with white, and black and
gold, and cctat only $3.
A very now arrival In the stocking
world Is tho accordion rib, which looks
Just like the Instrument It Is named after.
This comes In white with black nnd black
with white effects. Another good point
about these stockings Is that they are
three inches longer than the ordinary
style. They cost Jl.50.
A beautiful clocked stocking, "triple
clacked" that Is, with an.outllne of black
on each side of the clock comes in
almost every popular shade, Including
taupe, champagne, fawn, chamois, and, of
course, black and white. These cost (3.00
for tho triple, and i-.M for single clocks.
Hove you seen the newest "shot" silk
stockings? They are black, woven with
r?d, green, lavender, gray, yellow, etc.,
with a clock In color to match. They look
stunning with a cloth dress and patent
leather shoes, and only cost J3.75.
A rather startling pair made entirely of
dull bluish, opalescent beads, with silk
fet and tops coat $10.
Charming Christmas Gifts
The Mahogany Craze
The shops are showing charming gifts
In mahogany for Milady's tea table. Tea
has become quite an elaborate occasion
nowndays, with the hand-embroidered
tray cloth and the French padded muffin
covers. Pretty little copper kettles add
a highly artistic touch, contrasting with
the thinnest of china. As to the mahog
any fittings, they come at every price.
A beautiful mahogany muffin or sand
wich stand, three stories high, with a
most convenient handle to carry It by,
cost 3.W.
The tea tray Itself, Including a glass cov
ering on the top and a awing shelf. Is
only IW.50.
Some Interesting novelties In mahog
any are also being shown In the exclu
sive shops. A Martha Washington sew
ing table can be bought for it:. This Is
the cutest thing imaginable, and has
drawers enough to v hold everything for
the amateur seamstress. The same thing
can be bought in fancy walnut for liW.
A very new Idea Is tbe mahogany tele
phone stand. This has a low chair, which
fits snugy underneath the tiny table, and
a small Individual stand for the telephone
Itself. There la plenty of space for the
telephone book, and a little rack for pen
cils. It costs SIM.
Are you an enthusiastic reader? And
don't you nate the magazines spread all
around the room? The newest arrange
ment is the magaslne stand. Tlilj "opens
down," 'like a sectional bookcase, and
holds a raft of periodicals. When you
have finished- reading all you have to
do is to elpse up your little stand and
the books remain InsWe. This eosts lit.

Hints on
Tito dolly care of silver Is most Im
portant If you wish to" keep It In a thor
oughly good condition. In fact, If a little
extra tlmo was spent in- the regular wash
ing and drying, "thorough cleaning," ns
It Is called, need not bo oftencr than
'every three weeks or a month.
Remember In tho first plnco to wash
the silver as soon as possible after It has
been used. A wooden tub should be used
for this purpose If you possess such a
thing, as then there will ho llttlo danger
of scratching the sliver. Take water as
hot ns the hand can bear, add a fow
drops of ammonia and enough melted
soap or soap powder- to mako a nlco
lather. '
Wasli the silver In this, using a piece of
soft toweling to rub it with. Itinso in
clean, hot water," and dry with a fine
towel while tho silver Is still warm. You
will Jlnd that If It Is allowed to remain
wet It will be difficult to remove tho
water-marks. For this reason, if a large
quantity of sliver Is being done, It Is
best to db a little at a time. For instance,
one lot can bo finished as far as the rins
ing, and then tho second lot can be put to
soak In the soapy water while the first
Jot Is being dried.
When quite'' dry give each article a
good rub with a chamois leather; this
gives a brilliant polish.
Take great care not to-aeratch the silver
throughout the process, and It Is a good
idea to keep the forks separate from the
other articles. Another Important point
to remember is that both towel and
lather must bo perfectly clean and free
front grease. The towel should be changed
as Boon as It becomes In the least bit
damp. "
Egg spoons that have been very much
stained with the sulphur from the egg
should be rubbed with a little fine dry
salt and then washed,
A silver teapot may be washed In the
same way. only If It has a wooden handle
or wooden or Ivory rings on the handle,
It must not be allowed to soak In hot
water. TCben a teapot begins to have a
discolored appearance Inside or to smell
musty, fill It to the brim with boiling
water, and add a piece of washing soda.
Close down tho lid and let it stay like
that all nlglri.
Of course, from tlma to time silver
should Nave a special cleaning. One of
the best things to use for this Is fine
whitening or some good plate powder
and liquid ammonia. Put a little whiten
ing, not.ytnore than one. dessert-spoonful
at a time. Into a saucer and m,lx Into a
perfectly smooth paste with the Ammonia,
Jt should be of the consistency of thin
cream. Apply this to jtlie silver with a
Piece of soft flannel, rubbing each article
well, and especially those parts which
,are most likely to be stained. Allow this

Holiday seasons bring us m . "" -olden
days so giowlnsl described br
Various authdrs when the sole tlluml
nanta were candjes. Even though our
modern lighting systems are so efllclent
and superior to the rush lamp and the
tallow dip, holidays seem the natural time
for using the fcsllvo candle.
The candle has undoubtedly a deco
rntlve aesthetic touch which no other
form of lighting can surpass. It Is not
only the light Itself which Is soft, mel
low and becoming, but tho candle or
tapering form from which It Is released.
The long, pure" tubo of wax, mounted
on .a holder of metal or glass, seems
peculiarly appropriate for gracing the
holiday table, Candles permit ft balanced
arrangement of the table, and aro In
harmony with any kind of decoration.
1'crhaps glass holders are most suitable,
to tho dining table, with tho exception of
silver. If we are so fortunate as to pos
sess It Ilrass, copper, lacquer, etc.. havo
their plnco In living room or library,
where they give a noto of color to the
contrasting furniture and walls. Either
tn'o or four candlesticks are permissible
on the well-set table. They should be
neither too stumpy nor so tall as to pre
vent comfortable seeing of one's vls-a-vls.
Always, tho protecting glass disk should
be fitted to prevent dripping.
Shades may be of every kind and color
from paper to silk, from roso to red. llqw
ever, tho shade should be so mode that
tho light It focusscs on tho table Is not
too Intense In tone. Therefore nil shades
should be lined with white unless they
The Overlively Girl
Did you ever take Into consideration
tho difference between tho 6lrl who Is
"lively" and the girl who Is "gay"?
Th6so terms may -be synonymous to
women, but thero Is a world of differ
ence In the meaning to men. When men
say among themselves that a girl Is
"gay," they mean that she Is the kind
of a girl who frequents restaurants,
drinks highballs and smokes cigarettes
In public,
gills do
A few otherwise, (inlet, nice
thoso things occasionally un-
fortunately Tho effect on their mascu
line acquaintances Is Incalculable. '
"I don't caro anything about appear
ances,',' says this type of girl. "I'm just
out for a good time and I'm going id
get It. I'm over 21. If tho men turn
mo down becauso I do as I please,
let them. I'm not worrying over a mere
man! There aro Just as good Ilsh In tho
sea as ever I drew, bellevo me."
Tho girl who says this fofxets ono Im
portant nnd very significant Item. She
falls to realize, that the "fish In the sea"
to whom she refers In other words, tho
men sho hasn't met aro going to be of
lower and lower social standing as time
goes on. It is sad, but very true, that
the man who Is equal to this kind of a
girl In society seldom goes with her
long, If at nil. Tho reason Is clear, gen
erally speaking. A man of Intelligence,
nnd honor docs nqt go about very fre
quently with a girl unless he considers
the possibility of falling In lovo with
her. This Is not his original intention,
any moro thnn It Is hers, In spite of all
that litis been said of feminine wiles In
this respect. A man does 'not Bay to
himself, "I'll go' to see Mary ami after
awhile I'll marry her," but ho docs begin
to consider something very much like
It when he finds Mary's company Is
more congenial to him than that of any
other woman, or that ha Is anxious for
tho evenlng-'to arrive when ho will see
her again, or wonders If she Is a good
cook, 'etc.
All this depends on Mary. If Mary Is
a so-called "cafo chaBer" (and that Is
what tho men call her), her chances for
a happy marriage aro small. Sho will
either have to content herself with a
man who Is of a common calibre or con
tinue her present pathetically painted
hysterical existence.
