I IBf 8 i4M3T ORY CATASTROPHES-THE SHORT Too Many Girls Make the Mistake of Imagining Themselves In Love" With a Man When Their Real .Feeling is Friendship. By ELLEN AbAlIi TUB younff woman who Is sulricientlv stronff-mtnded to break oft her en gagement when aha discovers that heart cannot truthfully so with hand Is often an object of mueh censure and a Rood deal of unjust criticism. "What n flirt that Blrl 1st" the 'rnr moralists will exclaim, without In the least Investigating; the whys and where fores of the case. And as for the unfortunate damsel's girl friends, they will swoop around her like so many curious little birds of prey, seek. 1n for gossip to retail to me wnoio neighborhood. "My dear, we hear you've broken oft your engagement with Harry!" they ex claim In chdrus, "can It be true?" And she replies that It Is. But Isn't he really nice?" "res," says tho Mile fitrt uncomfort ably "Then why don't you marry hlm?" comes the chorus with a terrible nccent on tho "why." to mat sno can only reply that she really doesn't quite know, only o n 1 y well, thcro was "something!" Her friends all de cided that they never knew such a heartless creature. Why Bhe should break oft an en gagement with a man she acknowledges Is a really excellent creatute Is beyond their comprehension. But these Inqulsltlvo friends really don't understand the circumstances of the case. When a girl breaks oft her engagement thero Is generally somo quite all-sulllclng reason for tho doing of tho same, dcsplto tho remarks of tho critic. The mistake docs not llo In tho ending of tho engagement, but In tho fact that It has ever existed at all. Hero again the critics get busy. "She had no right to accept tho man If sho didn't Intend to marry him," they dcclaro righteously. A CHARACTERISTICALLY FRENCH FROCK OF UNIQUE DESIGN THE lato s u m m 0 r styles for children's clothes are 1 n d o o d charming enough t o tempt the most econom ical parent. I o v e 1 y plaid and dotted cham brays of all descriptions aro Been, simply trim med In many cases with bands of colored ma terial and Irish buttons. Tho vogue for tho nor mal walsttlno has re turned, too. The high Russian line, which was almost Indispensable on a child's dress, has been replaced by loose sash effects, or narrow stitched belts, like those worn by grown ups, Cretonne and chintz patterns are a dlslnctly new note In the late styles. Tiny smocks, hand made of linen In pals pastel shades aro seen In many of the largo Importers' shops: A pretty French frock designed by Fayrlland, of Paris, Is shown to day. It has a quaint ness about? It which Is sure to be accentuated by the American young ster. The lines of this frock are plain to a degree. It hangs loosely down from the shoulders with a short, full skirt The material Is a very fine French serge, with col lar and cuffs of pique. The tiny vest In the front Is also mado of pique, with a typically French bowknot o f moire at the throat. No one but a French de signer could use black successfully on a, child's garment. Notice the stitched yoke on the front of tho dress. The shoulders are shirred at the top to give the necessary full ness to the rest of the gown. The little hat worn with this frock lo roads of butter-colored straw, with a chlo cock ado at one side In Bel Clan colorings. To Clean Rag Rugs The Colonial, the rag rug, Is becoming' more popular each year for summer use. One ob jection to them la that they soil easily, espe cially in the light shades. Cleansing can be done by tacking the rug to a porch floor, scrubbing It with a brush and a soap solu tion and hanging- It on the line to dry. THE WISE WOMAN GUARDS HER SKIN AGAINST DUST THESE WARM DAYS A CLEAN', fine skin Is the right and privilege of every woman, and when, In an otherwise healthy skin, a black, icek appears on the face. It Is caused by the torpidity of the skin In that particular spot. It la merely a blemish which can easily be removed, and when squeezed out resembles a little white worm, oft,en called blackhead or fleshwonn, although It Is no worm at all. When, hqwever, the points, or black heads, have once been permitted to form End. are numerous on the skin, they are Tiry liable to degenerate Into ugly-look, trig white pimples, amounting to a dls- l ejM known as aene, which requires loeal " treatment It la a difficult matter to get rid of them.

Mot for a single moment do they give the girl nh Inkling of what their Intentions reully nro until tho fatal mo ment when they spring the great question on her lo find her totally Unprepared. Instead of working gradually toward the desired end, theso absurd lovers ex pect to get there at a single bound. And this Is precisely what causes tho ship wreck of many nn engagement. The girl has not tho slightest Idea thnt "Harry" Is going to propose to her, although sho reully greatly admires nnd likes him as a rriena. nut Hnrry keeps tho secret of his lovofor her so close that she never suspected It, nnd when he confesses It to her she Is utterly taken nback. Sho likes him so much as a friend I Ho would be so heartbroken If she refused him I She might grow to lovo him as n lover who knows? What reason has Bho for sus pecting otherwlso? Ho Is such n won derful friend. Her peoplo would bo so pleased. And so she accepted him, only to rcatlxo later that sho has mado a mistake. If nmorous swains would only see to It that tho lady of their heart has nn inkling of their Intention to propose, nnd could consider tho situation well beforchnnd. what an Immense nmount of subsequent troublo and hcart-burnlnga could be saved I Thoy run less risk of being re fused outright, or worso still, launching Into an unsatisfactory engagement which assuredly will bo broken by the dubious damsel In tho end. Wlillo girls havo not tho privilege of proposing, they should nt least bo allowed tho privilege of deciding whether they shall bo proposed to or not. tfJJsKSf S,YS 8 .MstBaBaaaV iSSIiaHBiEl JfiraMsaiBaBaBaBaBaBBSis w A CHILD'S FROCK FOR EARLY FALL tire face with a rotary motion, round, up and out, removing the excess cream with a soft cloth.

Billy Robin lived on spiders and that Billy and the wonderfpl Mr. Spider could never be friends, he was hopelessly puzzled. "How am I to know about this outdoor world!", he asked Mrs. Tommy, "I don't know who can be friends and who are enemies!" "If I were you," suggested Mrs. Tommy, "I would go right over to Mr. Spider now and ask him to explain himself. He can tell you a great deal." "That surely Is a good idea," eald Tommy thoughtfully, and, bidding his lit tle mate good-by, he started oyer toward the hedge. Carefully he crept nearer and nearer till at last the hedge was reached in safety. "I surely am getting braver," Tommy said to himself: "I didn't mind that journey one bit," and then he looked tor Mr. Spider. At first he saw no one, but he looked and be called, "Mr. .Spider I Mr. Spider! I am all alone this morning! Won't you come and talk to me?" And then, in a minute, he saw Mr. Spider stlfklng Ave ot his eyea out from behind a leaf. "I'm all alone," he repeated. Please come and talk to me." "Of course. If you are really alone," began Mr. Spider, and Tommy assured him that be was. So Mr. Spider crept out and sat on the bqttom of the web he had made. Though he appeared to give his whole attention to Tommy, he really kept four ot bis eyes hard at work watching tor danger it does not pay to take chances! "Well, good morning.

There promise to bo some Interesting legal complications surrounding the jollow automobile of Dr. Anna Howard Shaw, national president of tho Woman Suffrage Association. Tho constable who seized tho car from tho suffrnglst's homo In Moylah to satisfy a delinquent State tax of (126 declared he would advortlso Its public salo today, nnd followers of Doctor Shaw as sert that they will buy It. But some of tho suffragists, It Is said,, will not support Doctor Shaw In tho stand she has taken. A young woman at tho party headquarters In Media to day said that sho anil other members could see no reason for tho doctor's at titude. Meanwhile, a statement comes from Doctor Shaw herself. Sho is away on business at Plttsfleld, Mass. Sho said, "Tho salo will probably tako place, and tho little yellow motor known ns Eastern Victory will become famous when history of the tyrannical and Inconsistent atti tude of this so-called republic shall bo written." Doctor Shaw haB placed the case In tho hands of three attorneys, and develop ments are expected when the little auto will bo put up for sale. It Is contended by tho luffraglst that she has violated no law. When requested to make out her statement of personal property In 1913, Doctor Shaw Bald that the document given her explained that the asscsor could make out such a list himself. He did so, sho Bald, but took no pains whatever to ascertain tho amount of her propert. The suffragist haa witnesses, she said, to testify to tho fact that instead of comply ing with this reasonable provision of tho law, the asscsor boasted that he would mako tho assessment so largo that It would compel Doctor Bhaw to make a statement. Ho assessed her taxable per sonal property at $30,000. Tho tax bill Is not tho only ono that will bo charged against tho automobile If It Is sold by tho constable. Today Con stable Mathuea received for collection a bill for teaching Miss Lucy Anthony, Doctor Shaw's secretary, to run the- car. iiua was placed In his hands by W. A.

The salo is scheduled for next Tuesday and will bo held at Plerson's garage, if It Is not stayed. Action will bo taken today to restrain tho constable from making the sale.

MARRIAGE IMPROVED HER WORK SAYS ARTIST OF INTERNATIONAL NOTE As Miss Elsa Koenig She Studied Abroad and Won Salon Prize With a Canvas She Married a University Officer. Says Woman of Talent Is a Woman First. TO ALL of those arguments which treat of a woman's, inability to be a success ful wife and rnother and to pursue a career at ono nnd the same lime, Mrs. Elsa Koenig NItzsche Is nn eloquent con tladlctton. For the last 13 years she has been en- gnged In painting portraits, most of them of prominent Phlladclphians. It was when she" was most Industriously engaged in painting from sunUp until sundown that Dan Cupid decided It was time to step In and play his highest trump. He .11,1 ami r-.ia.-i ifnonlir became Mrs. George NItzsche, wlfo of the recorder of tho University of Pennsylvania. Desplto tho fact that sho now has an adorable little girl whose "sunshiny" hair has been responsible for her nick name "Goldy," nnd that she personally supervises the running of her attractive homo at 411 West Carpenter street, Ger mantown, Mrs. NItzsche Is still painting portraits, nnd her maturer work fulfils moro and more the promise of her early productions. "It Is perfectly possible. In my opinion, for n woman to follow her career after sho Is married." this very feminine nnd nttrnetivo nrtlst said, "although I am willing to grant that If she believes her first duty to bo to her home, husband nnd children, ns she should believe, sho will not bo able to accomplish as mucii work as sho could beforo thero were any domcstlo ties. "Tho character of her work, however," sho continued, "should bo Improved, bo causo through marriage a woman's view point is broadened and her cxpcricnco of life nmpllfled. Beforo I was married I maintained a studio In town nnd I worked from morning until night without stopping. "I still work hard, but not Incessantly, and I now have my studio In my home that Is tho only difference. If, however, my sitter Is too busy to como out horc, I rent a studio In town and work there. Ho, you see, marrlago after nil need not wreck a woman's career, though, I will grant that a woman Is always a woman first, and an artist or n writer or a sculp tor nftcrward. Wo aro built that way." At present Mrs. Nltzscho Is cngnged In painting tho portrait of Dr. Edward Kirk, dean of tho Evans Dentnl Institute of the University of Pennsylvania. When It Is completed It will be hung In tho build ing of tho Institute, at 40th and Spruco Streets. Recently sho completed tho portrait of Dr. Arthur Hopcwcll-Smlth, of the samo Institution, which ho has taken to Eng land with him.

Five servants of the lato Mrs. Mary Van Bell nre now occupying tho resi dence of their former employer at Merlon, pqndhfg alterations on a houso nt 1505 Brown street, which was willed to one of them with the proviso that it bo tho homo for the four other ser vants during their lifetime. Maggie Burns, tho ono to whom tho houao was bequeathed, had been In the employ ot-Mrs. Van- Bell for 33 years. Tho other servants who aro tp share the bequest aro Cafssio Burns, Mary Gorman, Margaret Gorman and Margaret Coch ran. In addition to this proviso MrB. Van -Bell set aside $30,000, tho Interest on this sum to go to Magglo and Casslo Burns and Margaret Cochran, tho threo oldest servants, during their lifetime. Tho other two servants and Green McNeil, a negro coachman, received bequests of (3000 each In cash. Other servants, numbering seven or eight, receive $200 In cash and J100 addi tional for each year spent in Mrs. Van Bell's employ. All aro entitled to occupy the Van Bell estate until they havo been provided for elsewhere.

In ad dition to tho money set aside for the servants, Mrs. Van Bell bequeathed sums to numerous charities. The remainder is willed to two Bisters of Mrs. Van Bell and their children, this sum to be aug mented upon tho death ot tho servants with the $00,000 from which they draw interest.
