Unfortunate Remarks
The woman who Intends to linve any
urt of Bucesa In this world must be
tactful. If she Isn't naturally tactful,
then the sooner she learns bo to be, the
better for herpelf. For tnctfulncss n
vn'6 brings with It a measure of popular
ity. Conversely, the lack of tact uhvuyo
means more than n small desieo of un
popularityand who among us can rf
ford to bo unpopular with our fellow
creatures?
1 havo In mind one gill of my ncciua ni
nnco who always says the wrong thliR.
No matter where she Is or how she Is
or what the circumstances me. she In
variably pats her foot In It. And t she
Is thorougnly wcllineniiliit,'. That in the
lamentable part of the whole affair. She
wouldn't hurt the feelings of the pro
verbial mouse If she could help It-but
she can't help Itl l'or she wus bom with
lack of tact. And no one shows her the
error of her wuys.
In the small circle In which she lives
and motes and has' her being 3he Is only
tolerated not leally liked, yiio wundeiH
why?
"I'm sure I'm as good-nutured as pos
sible!" she will exclaim In a burst of con
lldcnce, to so.i.o friend. "Hut all the
same, the other girts don't miciii to like
mo nt all! Only last neck I hnd Mnry
Brown t.tuylng with mo and 1 gao her a
splendid time. Uut Mary didn't exactly
gush when she said goud-hy to me I
don't believe she lenlly did enjoy her
self!" And she Is perfectly light. Kor how
could Mary Urowu enjoy herself when
most of the time she was the unwilling
victim of tactless remarks nnd tactless
conduct?
"I'm so glad to see you. .Mary. Uut,
dear me, how dtcadfully haggard you're
looking!" the tactless oiin exclaimed
when her guest arrived. "What on earth
have you been doing to youieelf? You
look years older than when I last saw
youl What a change! I don't believe
If I'll met you on the stieet I'd havo
recognized you!"
And poor Mary Urown feels as If the
yearn of u Methuselah were icstlng on
her still youthful shoulders.
"I feel pcifcctly well only a little tirpd
after the Journey," alio murmurs nwk
warkly. "You poor soul, you are looking dread
ful!" the tactless friend continues. "You
have lines under your eyes and your face
lias such a drawn, white look. You used
to have such ajnetty color, Mary! What
a shame that you should have lobt it!
But then your work Is j conln!ng. Isn't
it? I should hate It myself, If I wore
you! Teaching children must be per
fectly awful, I think."
"But I don't think It awful, I enjoy It,"
says tho unfortunate visitor, plucking up
rufficicnt spirit for the Indication of hei
chosen profession.

maki-B some even moto pitying remark,
width Is none th0 'ess galling for tho fact
that It Is mi'iiht cry kindly.
"Come right upstairs and rest, Mary
lug u llttle'party in your honor tonight,
and Jim Smith Is to be here. So you
must look your very best."
The visitor here shows signs of cm
.vtriniutment, for the young man referred
to holds a prominent place In her esteem.
It Is tho Pawning of a love affair. Uut
me Is somewhnt shy on the subject, nnd
not for u nilils would she let the other
hluk that the aforementioned Jim Smith
holds any extrnordltmiy Interest for her.
And no, v omnii-llhe, c!ie affects an 111
difleience she Is very far from feeling.
"Is ho i rally taking me ,n to dinner?"
she quciics ciiRiially "No, I don't know
lilm piirtlrtilnm mo. I."
And so her tnrt.css friend, not being
well-read In the human heart nor well
vcieed Iti Its outwnul manifestations,
thinks that she will best please Mary
by sending Ikt In to dinner with a part
ncr other thnn the one selected.
"Mnry doesn't. seem to care about Jlln
Smith." sho tcllecls tranuiiltly.
And when tho change has been if-fei-ti'd,
she feels thoroughly satlslled
wllh her sharo tlieri-ln llttlo knowing
that by so doing Bln has destroyed the
mucli-looUcd-fot ward-to pleasuie in two
bashrul henits.
After dinner sho rushes up to her denr
friend Mnry. "Aren't ou glnd 1 chose

claims virtuously. "Uut oh, Mury, I nm
F.o sorry Mint you cho c to wear a black
gown tonight! on are so much prettier
In pink or something bright. Olrls who
tiro as pnlo as you me should avoid

The remark springs from n genuine In
terest in the unfortunate Mary, but noira
tlio less does It cniry n Ming Willi it.
for Stuiy feels t lint she Is looking plain
mill dowdy, and her spirits sink to zero
nt one rush,
"What a charming girl SIlss Urown
Is," lemni'ks u genial old man. "It Is
a pleasure for nie to talk with her. She
Is a wonderful convcisntlonnllst for una
so young."
"Uut she Isn't so very young!" ex
claims the tactic" one finite audibly.
"Why, -she Is ipille '.'S. Yes, Isn't she
it dear'.' I'm iimfully fond of her! She
used to be i cry pietly, when she was

Later on. when Jim Smith became en
gaged to Slim- Ftrown. the lacthss friend
was (tille surprised that the happy cou
ple didn't come to see her oftcner. "It is
extraordinary!" she would exclaim In .i
melancholy tone to her small clrchi of
friends.
Uut, remembering hr tactless rcmaiks
at the unfortunate dinner-party, the
friends d'dn't think It extraordinary at
nil. Only they didn't have the lourago
to tell her so!
And so tho well-meaning but tactless
woman goes on her way, making trou-
I ilo and causing heart-burnings all t lie
time and possessed of very few real

Is ut heart, until she mends her ways
she never will ho popular.

THE DAILY STORY
BORDMAN PROPOSES
Although lliiiiliiinu SylM'Htcr had a
great deal of Imagination for un English
man nnd although "he had listened lo
Slnignlet talk about college doings by
the hour on boaul the boat that brought
her baclt fioni England to her senior year
nt Dover College and drought him to n
week's lslt to the State, and although
his extensile loamlngs had taught him
piepaiedness for anything, still his llr.it
half hour of Dover Collegi- fairly took hlu
breath away, lie nirlvcd. after collet
had been In .session for tU'diiys, at about
I o'clock In the afternoon, and. Iiaxlng se
cured a room at the neat llttlo Dover ho
tel, he started out In I ha dliectlon of tin
nmpus in search of Margaret with Im
patience of spirit and Joy of hc.-iit.
Two smiling, luitlcss young women, chid
in outing stilts, approached him peifcct.y
unabashed:
"We are official guides," they sicincd to
sny In chorus. "Wo will show yon thn
campus, tho lake, the ramble, the college
buildings, Hie chapel, and Indicate all tin
points of Interest nil for a dollar. Wo
ore raising tho money for the college ath
letic association."
liurduian fumbled Hi his pocket for a
dollar and consented to bo guided.
"I want most of all tn be shown to
tlicllie doimltoiy," ho said with an
accent that seemed lo delight his guides.
He could feel that they were casting ap
proving glances over his head. "It Is
jolly good of you urn I am awfully
obliged, but if you will pilot nm tn the
dormitory, Mint is about all that 1 will
have time for."
The guides smiled and led him through
tho campus entrance, walking faster und
taster as they proceeded, ono Inking up
the thread of the conversation wlicie the
other left off. Bordniaii laughed and
talked pleasantly with them, and when
thev pnsbed a group of a girls, rlad In
sweaters and bloomer!, "A group of un
dergraduates." as tho guides explained,
"returning from basketball piaetlce"
his natural Instinct, In view of the un
usual costumes worn by tho party, was
to turn his guzo from them.
He felt some ono looking at him. Ho
looked back Just as tho group had
passed and there he saw In the person
of one of tho be-hlocmcrcd young ath
letes tho object of his heart's dcBlrc,
Slargorot. For a moment ho paused.
Perhaps he had better leave his guides
and follow her, und then, as he thought
of It, It seemed better to wait till she
had time to dress In mora conventional
garb before lie Joined her.
"I say," he said. Dually, "don't you
think you havo given me a dollar's
worth? I have had u lipping time, really,
but I want to go and call on a friend
at tho dormitory."
When Bordman finally mado his way to
the dormitory und had tho front door
opened by a diminutive buttoned page ho
found himself In tho midst of a bevy of
talking, laughing young women who
looked up In surprise as lit; passed them
Into a small reception room, whither the
page directed him. Soon Margaret camo
downstairs and greeted Bordman with
Indifference, unlike the sympathetic ex
pression he had taken away as a memory
of her but 10 days ago.
"I didn't know you had any other
friends at Dover," she said, with a ris
ing inflection, intended to Indicate In
difference, and It took a good 10 minutes
of Bordman's persuasion to explain that
he had been "guided" quite ngalnst his
will, and that later, when Margaret
passed him on the campus, the reason he
didn't desert them to follow her was bo
cause he felt that perhaps, dressed as
she was, she wouldn't have cared to
stop to talk to him.
"Awfully fetching costume, though," ho
added, hastily, feeling that perhaps she
would think he disapproved.
Then Margaret took another good 10
minutes explaining the nature of basket
ball minutes that Bordman was aching
to use for the purpose for which ho had
come to Doerv He had to return early
tho next morning to New York, hi order
to catch his steamship back to England,
and it was part of his plans to take
back with him, If he could, the knowl
edge that Margaret would be his wife.
However, he listened to Margaret's ex
planation. She paused a minute for
breath and Bordman drew his chair
nearer to her.
"Be careful," she warned, "this Is not
the steamer deck, you know; a half a
dozen girls In the hall are watching us."
"Can't we close the doors? I want to
talk to you seriously."
"They don't shut," said Margaret.
"They aren't doors they are Just
arches."
"Oh." sighed Bordman, "well. I can
talk to you "
Just then an excited young woman ran
Into the room. "Excuse ne, Margaret,
for butting In. but wo have been waiting
for you for 1$ minutes. There U a com.
SPUING HAT OV LEGHORN AND CHIFFON
! mlttce meeting nnd wo need you for tlio
' quorum," and with that .Margaret with
'a word of apology left llonliiimi with the
words of his anticipated pioposal on his
tongue's end.
Boidinnn waited lialf an hour and tlu-n
i Slargaret returned to say that it was din-
I ncr hour and that as It was ngnluit the
rules of the dormitory to lie late to uln-
ner she would lime to leave him. He
suggested that she come with him lo Ills
hotel for dinner, but when M.irgnict ex-
, plained that this could be done only with
' the Intrusion of a woman iiu-tiiictor as
I chaperon, Bordniaii did not urge her.
! Alter illmiei lie i cached .Margaret nu
, tlio telephone. "When may I see you?"
he asked. "1 hnc to I cava heio tomor
inw moiiilng at li and it may lie mouths
before I can mako nnothcr trip to the
States"
.Margaret considered. "I luiiea play le
henrsal for tho 'senior frolic' tonight nt
T::; Mint will Inst till 9. Tim lights are
out In the leeeptliui Imll at 0:3). I can
i-ee you for a "naif hour then."
Ilordmuii m rived at five minutes lirforo

"Vou know how fond I mil of you," ho
began "I limp told mil "

Margaret ran fiom the room, with Bord

In the confusion. Then rauio the deluge

of what 'ills duly wns. He would step

Then, nt tho risk of his own life, IT need

would bo In flames by that tlmo.
he thought and seareh tho building tu
sec that no one lind been left.
Even whllo Bordman was making these
plans they had marcned past him In
orderly rank. "Where Is tho lire?" he
asked. "Did It start urstalrs?"
"This is tho weekly fire drill," answered
the girl sweetly.
Bordman withdrew to tho reception
room to think It over. He heard tho girls
returning to the building and then heard
them lllo upstairs. The clock struck t-:"0
and tho lights, all but for a low light In
tho hall, wont Middenly out. Then In a
minute a llguro crept into tho reception
room In tho darkness shoeless, so as not
tn be hcaid. It was Margaret, and she
crept up to his sido with all tho old con
fidence she hud shown on thn steamer.
"That tire drill Interrupted us," she said.
"We never know when It Is going off.
So I thought I would como back, even U
It Is breaking rules. I will tell yon all
about tho lire drills. If you can wait "
"Don't you daro Btart It again," Bord
man suld frantically. "I have been try
ing for 30 hours to ask you to marry me.
I have to leave heie tomorrow early and
I can't go till I know my fato."
"Do you really mean that you want to
be engaged to mo?" gasped Margaret. "I
thought you must have decided not to.
But you English men are so deliberate.
Yes, of course I will say 'yes.' "

Her Horoscope
'Tis true, ono halt ot woman's llfo Is hope
And one half resignation. Between
there Ilea
Anguish of broken dreams doubts, dire
surprise,
And then is born the strength with till
to cope.
Unconsciously sublime, life's shadowed
slope
Sho braves; the knowledge In her
patient eyes
Ot nil that lovo bestows, and love denies.
As writ in every woman's horoscope!
Sho lives, her heart-beats given to others'
needs.
Her hands, to lift for others on tho way
The burdens which their weariness for
sook. Sho dies, an uncrowned doer of great
deed.

It Is perfectly truo that I nm crazy

"Really, Dorothy," said mamma today,
"you havo quite enough hats to start '.

"But hats arc the most Important part
of ono's otitnt," I said. "And when I see

"Well, then," said mamma, In her kind,
Indulgent way, "slnco your birthday Is
tomorrow you can havo another hat, "and
we'll go out together this very afternoon
nnd cIiooeo It. You con hnvo tho benefit

Naturally I wns perfectly delighted. 1

So, nt - o'clock precisely, mamma and I
set off for a shopping bout. Wo headed

"Why. that Is perfectly hideous!" ex

in tlio extreme!
However, I Insisted that we go In and
that I try It on. Certainly It wns very

I'., filth nnd City I.lne ave,, Overbruok, 1'a.,
fur tlie following suggestion:
When making blouses. If you sew tho
hooks and eyes on n picco of tape Instead
ot on the iilousc Itself, you will save
trouble when you go lo launder tho
blouse. You can remove tho tape with
tho hooks nnd eyes on It, and they will
nover rust on your material. Flattened
hooks will also bo avoided. Besides this,
If you biittonholo-stltch your hooks and
eyes on, they will be more secure.

THE CHAFING DISH PARTY
So many girls aro giving chaflnjlii'
patties nowadays that you will flnlioth
self quite out of fashion If you don't on"
one. A girl who wouldn't ordinarily tot
how to cook would almost be wlllinsti
learn If she had a chafing dish to pin.
tlco on. Many a wise mother, reillilcj
this takes advnntage of the propltloti
occasion of a birthday or annlvtrnr;
and presents her daughter with a ssnf
silver dish.
These, by tho way. are not In the im
expensive, because tho fuel costs so Uttla
Tho alcohol dishes are very nice tut
safe, especially If you use the sollllltij
alcohol in place or tho liquid. The !
trio dishes are higher In price, bat II
your houso has electric connections It fl
pay you tu tho long run. The clufti
dishes nro made of shiny nickel or e
per. Nothing Is moro attractive io lit,
eye to the masculine cyo in pa rtlculir-j
than a pietty girl presiding over the chM
lng dish, chatting and stirring. '
Many usctul utensils can be had tor'
with tho dialing dish. Long-hmCd'
spoons, forks and ladles, made of ortnp
wood, and tipped with nickel or copper
to match tho dish, may be bougfit lot
very little. A lnrgo tray to hold the. diet,
cooklns apparatus, and tho food u 2,
completes tho set, and all the good Urns
