rting Until It Hurts Kills the True Spirit of Wanting
te Give
THERE used "te be n phrase that
many speakers used with fervor
when nuking for gifts te the wnr re
lief funds ntnl for the church mission
funds. The.v used te urge the givers
te give "until It hurt!"
I de net think Hint is the wny grent
giving Is accomplished. Yeu give
If you give generously until "It does
net hurt." Like everything else that
Is done well, the best giving Is done
with all the heart. Whatever the sac
rifice, one would rather glve than net,
and would rather go without sonic
thing else that Ms even vital, than go
without making the gift.
It Is a leftover Puritan notion that
It Is complete!- painful te be geed and
trial te be generous, and that re
ligion Is stern, and duty is uphill work,
rand that that is all one gets out et
It In the doing en this earth, whatever
the Jey In heaven. There Is hard work
.Involved In being geed, se there Is In
every ether form of pleasure possible
1 for man from dnnclng te aviation. Ile-
llng an explorer Is hard work harder
work thun being n foreign missionary!
Being a great financier is hard work,
, harder than being n clergyman ; nnd
being a successful gambler takes mere
concentration than bcinx n successful
teacher, while bclnj; a drunkard is
much harder en the body nnd en the
disposition than being nil nthlcte.
Spending one's money en oneself Isn't
half the fun that spending It en ether3
enn be, and spending It Is really easier
than saving It, in point of the acumen
Involved. S It is all a matter of choice
which kind of work you will undertake
as yours, the kind that parses the time
and makes you a first rate social nset
for any one who wants jeu te play
with, or the kind of work that makes
you one with the stnrs and the seasons
and forces of nature ns well as one
with the great tides of human en
deavor. PERSON'S who nre successfully any
thing are the way they are because
It Is the way they most want te be.
And in the matter of giving, if ou
are generous te the point of spending
en ethers what you might wry com
fortably spend en yourself, then you
have chosen te give, rather then keep,
because en the whole that U what jeu
want te de most, all tnings considered.
This is rather en my mind te think
out because today I had n letter from
some one who reads this Saturday eve
ning talk each week, nppnrentl, nni
who felt aggrieved at a friend te whom
ehe had been generous because she get
He return presents nt birthdays or nt
Chrlstnins. I fancy she felt hurt net
te be remembered, rather mere than
net te have the value of a gift, but she
did feel hurt, and a little mad, I
thought, nnd rather as though she would
atop spending geed money en a person
who took tee much for granted te be
very rewarding.
THERE nre a few perfectly balanced
minds In the world In thl affair of
glvln; and getting. Thnt is they give
and they get with equal plea-sure. But
the majority of us either like best te .-. , ., A ,
give or like host te get. These of us ' T IJl' nW te Rive freely In such a
-. w
"lessened If our mere extras and luxuries
were had at the expense of t-emc one
Who was without the bare necessities.
As St. Paul remarked or was It Our
Saviour? "He that sccth his brother
have need and shutteth up his com
passion from him, hew dwellcth the love
of Oed in him?" Hew Indeed!
In short, If you urc a spontaneous
giver, It Is the giving that makes your
reward : the getting In return is a side
issue which In most cases can be dis
pensed with without any less te one's
pleasure In the transaction.
Hut te give te some one who is un
gracious or uneppreclative or whose
manner leaves jeu with the feeling that
what jeu have given Is regarded ns
though It was a paid debt by the recip
ient well that pretty well picks the mo
tive that jeu actually had in the giving
right down te the bone. Certainly If there
was any patronage In the gift, or nny
tplurglness of feeling rich and Indulging
in the feeling, or any schfc of power
ever the person te whom you are gen
erous, you have gotten mighty left ! for
the pleasure that you paid te have
hasn't shown up. Hut If you gave be
cause there was real need or because
jeu wanted some one' te have something
she must elherwUe forge, well, then,
no curtness or even fergetfulness en
the part of the recipient cun rob you
of the thing you paid for when you
gave that present. Your gift has filled
a need or a long-felt desire.
Whether the person is worthy or
unworthy, grateful or careless, he Is
benefiting by what you have been able
te procure for hint, and th.it being jour
chief aim, you have gotten all you set
your heart upon when you gave.
ERY "soft" way of giving, It
sounds stated that wnj ' Hut we
have no less an authority than Christ
te back us up in thnt way of giving.
He called the attention of HIh dlveMes
te the fnct thnt thnt wn Ged's wny
of giving: "lie mnketh Ills sun te
rise en the evil nnd en the geed!"
And In urglngthcm te be like find, He
gives that trnit ns being the murk of
their veritable senship, the clmraitcr
Istlc thnt shows their kinship with (Seil.
Parents who cut off ungrateful chil
dren In their wills, ma-tei's who leek
for deep appreciation before thev dis
pense their gifts, friends who bestow
lavishly and then ccrttnt the benefits n
though they remember there were se
ninny creditors, benefneters who support
this charity or that, this individual nr
thnt. and then expect n leturn of humble
praise, well-sustnlned. have all misled
the Ged-like way of giving. Giving for
them is net n necessity, n fulfillment, a
satisfaction of love, rather is It a pui
chase en their part of something thnt
they wish te possess, perhaps peace of
mind, perhaps adulation, perhaps u re
turn birthday present.
If they are peer bargainers In that
purchnse. se much the worse for them !
One does net exactly pity them; fur
under the guise of givers, thev have
really been would-be getters of what
they want most.
In getting acclaim or appreciation
they hnve. as our Lord remarked,
"their reward."
O. sound
Who like best te "ive enjoy the imper
tance of giving pleasure, or of giving
comfort or of giving health or rest or
some material benefit te persons that
but for s would go without. We like
the importance even of giving luxuries
te certain denr people, cither becnuse
they nre se responsive, or because it Is
fun te think jeu can give luxuries here
nnd there with n lavish hand. It
makes one feel rich, and te feel rich
Is a pleasing sensation for which one
docs net mind paying new nnd again,
especially if one is ncrunlly peer.
Then, tee, the gifts thnt nre vitally
needed which wc give we should feel
uncomfortable net te give. Our pleas
ure in the things that we have would be

Is a test of the perfect giver ! And
te give wisely se that It does net hurt

Imagination. It is a fine art. the nrt
of giving! ery little children can be

pilgrim can practice it te perfection.

Correct Llghtlnjr Lamps
When the fixed lighting appliances are
nitably placed, we must choeso the
lamps which will add charm and con
venience te our rooms. Great care must
be taken, for traps have been lnid for
the unwary in the shape of terrible
metal lamp.s with green or yellow glass
shades, and net even all Chinese or
Japanese lumps of modern make are
Ne matter hew beautiful a lamp may
be, if It is net suited te its environ
ment and the use te be made of it, It
la unsatisfactory.
The questions te nsk in buying n lamp
are: Fer what room is it te be used?
Should It be handsome or simple? Is
n strong light needed ever a large
area or is n softened illumination de
sired? Is it te be n fleer or table
lamp? If a table lamp, en what sort
of a table Is it te stand? In either
ense, what should be the height and
with what character e furniture la it
te go? We must nlse consider the
effect of the lamp against Its back
ground, both unllghted and lighted.
Lamps of modern pottery In dull
tones, or luster, or Chinese or Japanese
In character, lamps of geed design In
bronze, copper, silver or painted weed,
may all be used with propriety In n

The carved bases i .y be gilded and

Jehn Steele enters his tail tehich
he has left during a furious rain
storm and finds a mystciinm and
beautiful girl, taking icfuyc there. In
a frenzy of terror she demand that
he let her go, but a she't distance up
the block she faints, and Steele takes
her hemr cith him. There ensue a
terrific fight for her life, and for some
unkneicn reason that he cannot cr
nfni'ii, Steele, by the sheer feicc of
his will, holds death aieay from her.
Probing the Past
WHETHER the fever bad run Its
course, or whether Steele had
really been Instrumental in saving the
girl's life, will never be known, but cer
tainly the crisis wns passed that night.
Afterward when the girl wns peace
fully sleeping Dr. Hendersen met Steele
in the hnll and held out his hand.
"I think j-eu should take the credit
for the case, old man," he wild, with
the privilege of the old fnmllj physi
cian. "Earlier this evening I didn't
think she had n chance, nnd I think
she ewes her life te you, strange ns it
may seem."
"She'll live, then?" There was a
strange eagerness in his voice.
"Yes, she'll live, with proper care,
of course. She's a frail little thing
nnd the's evidently been up ngainst It.
It's Inconceivable whnt borne women go
through and the buffering they en
dure." Steele nodded brusquely. He did net
wnnt te talk, and least of nil did he
wnnt te discuss the case. He wanted
te be assured of only one thing, and
that was that she would live. It was
the only thing that mattered.
As for Mrs. Steele, she lay nwnke
for n long time that night trying te
face things In her own mind. She
could net account for Jehn's queer
attitude, but she determined before she
fell asleep net te let him suspect her

fears. It would be the surest wny t
precipitate a crisis, nnd perhaps after
all there was no foundation for her
suspicions. They had all been over
wrought nnd net quite normal, nnd
j Jehn's feeling for the wnif might be
nothing nt nil but nil Intense pity.
1 Jehn settled the matter blnibelf by
I telephoning up from the office tDe next
' nfternoen and snjlng thnt he wns go
ing nway unexpectedly en ImMness, nnd
Mnrcin drew a long breath of relief.
Hew foolish she hnd been te worry.
All that was necessary new was te get
the girl well nsnln, and then they would
till wash their hands of her. Mnrcin
fciget entirely thnt queer glimpse ,of
the future uhe hud had en, the preced
ing evening when, with bated breath,
she bad steed in the blckrnem and
watched Jehn as he had held the girl
ngainst bis breabt, but she was te re
member it later and te think of it ns
something uncannj, ns she wns te think
of n great many ether things abcut
Anne Temple.
Anne made n charming convalescent
and in spite of herself Mnrcin grew fend
of the girl, but she found It impossible
te get beyond a certain point in the
talks thnt took place between them,
On the second dny nftcr the -fever
had abated Mnrcin enme in nnd ?at
down beside the bed. After n few pre
liminary remnrks she began te ply the
girl with questions, but te most of
them Anne gave evasive nnswers.
Her name was Anne Temple. Ne,
there was no one who needed te be
notified, no one who cared whnt be
came of her; she wns nlone in tlia
world. Mnrcia was clever enough nnt
te press her point that first day, but
when she returned te the attnek a day
or se later she met with the s.une re
sults, nnd when she beenme insistent
thcre appeared in the girl's eyes a leek
of s.uch abject fenr thnt Mnrcia be
came frightened nnd desisted. The girl
wns still in tee delicnte n state te be
unduly excited, nnd Marcla had no de
sire for a setback. She wanted te be
rid of Anne as seen ns possible, nnd
nothing would be gnlncd by frightening
her. Hut In the girl's reticence Marcia
rend some fenrful secret. Hurled deep
In Anne's heart there lurked; some bin
Istcr hanncning of the past, some ex
perlence that belied the childish purity
of the girl's features, nnd brought that
leek e terror te tier eyes.
What It was Marcla could net
Imagine, nnd certainly the girl seemed
te hnve no Intention of taking any one
Inte her confidence.
(Te be continued)
SOME months age nn actress who Is
famous everywhere was found by
some friends In n desperate condition.
She hnd been' 111 for months nnd was

And friends, splcfldld friends, from oil

who hnd never spoken te her, "but who

A benefit was given for her, and be
cause she knew that It was all done, net
for chnrify but forjeyrflty and friend
ship, she' could accept their gifts.
The money helped her, shved her life,
but mere than anything else the feeling
behind nil thegoedness that was done
buoyed her up, brought back her old
desire te live, her self-respect.
And new nt last she says that slu Is
happy again becnuse some one has given
her a pnrt in n film production.

An Idea has Ions existed thnt the

Thnt this belief is lnns-livcd can read

him te nccempany her te a church so

he recelved nnether call from her, ask

social, which he also did Soen after
he met her en the street, and she nsked
him te attend another church affair.
Was this proper for the young lady te

It very much out of place.

The custom of bobbing theialr may
be passing, ns some hairdressers say,
or it may have come te Btay, na many
of the flappers hope, but whether It .Is
for short or for long, it should give
offense te nobody, Fer even the popu
lar "bob" must fellow a certain etiquette.
A girl with a short crop of hair should
nrrange It se that It can, control Itself
"befere folks." There are all sorts of
ornamental bandeaux and glittering
aide combs which ornament the free
coiffure, and at the same time serve
te keep It In geed order." Hut alas!
there are also "bebble combs' sold, and
these are misused, as In the illustration,
where the flapper has taken her bebble
comb out of Its leather" case, and Is
actually combing her hair at a cafe
table I Whether the hair la short or
long, combing it.ln publle.ls.nn cxhlbl cxhlbl

O, could I twang a singing lyre
Or pluck a throbbing chord
With all Debussy's magic flre

If I cculd move the multitude
As I talked by the hour
And charm the minds and hearts e men
With rhel'rlc's fairest flewei"
If I could wield a mighty pen
Through words that seemed te glow,
I'd held the wlde world In my palm
And every man should knew.
If these three gifts were mine te grasp

Aak "What About Knlckera"?
Dear Cynthia As I have written te
you ence before en the subject of
bobbed hnlr, I nm new taking the
liberty te wrlte te you again and open
a mero Interesting topic for discussion
knickers tei girls. Here Is the view I
Fer sports (golf, tennis, ice skat
ing, etc.), te my way of thinking,
knickers "can t be beat." They glve
freedom te the limbs and aronet only
mere cqmfortable, but mero ctmvenlcnt
than skirts. Of ceurse, eh In the way
with everything, they are abused. Girls
use them for pethlng ether than te
lock, cute and attract the' men, one
young lady i even asking if they would
ever be worn te apurch. If used in
mis way KnicKers weum ren a girl of
all the femininity a man seuidmlres in a
wewi'an. They would make her mero
masculine. and mero like the man who
is supposed te be her inferior. Well,
enough of that.
Net lentf bbe I read in the nnner ih
different opinions of the principals of
the various high schools In Philadel
phia upon this subject, and ene man
especially declared that any girl who
dared te enter his building in theso
uuiianaisn trousers weuia de expelled

any ene my superior, I must say that

Were knickers adopted for school wear
this would all be avoided. Se, as a
summing up, I say, "Ieng llve knlekera
and may they thrive I" Come en. bevs
