DORSEY. In many homes the boys are all crowded Into one room, the two double beds holding; as many as one household is usually blessed with, but If by planning It can be found possi ble to give eacb boy a room It should be done so that he maj-have some chance to express his own individuality in It. When a room Is given the boy It should be papered in a good background color en olire or moss green, old rose bordering on terra cotta. or a clear Delft blue a plain paper with no pattern of great geometrical figures or Impossible roses of mammoth proportions bedecking It: for only against ft plain paper can bis countless mural decorations show up to that advantage which makes them radiant ly eye-pleasing to him and his chums. In kindness to the boy let him adorn these walls himself In true boyish fashion, for only a an expression of himself will he realty care for his room and take pleasure In having his friends compare It with thlr own. His crude taste In art productions Is only & passing phase and one need not fear that be cause he now likes highly colored lithographs and prints at 14 or IS he may never learn to appreciate a "Whistler etching or a Co rot land scape. He Is only chooslnr what he likes now because of its subject and its vividness. Just as the savage chooses a red blanket and strings of blue beads; but In a few years more the subtle appeal of delicate tints and master ly technique will have Its sway and he will clear away all these decorations, which ha Will then think paltry. Wayt of Normal Boy. But for the present allow him to display his art treasure's in the way that stems good to htm, and if he is the normal boy there will be great posters of sportsmen with dog and gun, fishermen with strings of speckled beauties, Indians on the warpath, Canadian guides paddling (heir kyacks through dan gerous waters, campers around their evening Are, boxers giving each other solar plexus blows, batters making marvelous home run hits, and a football tackle that looks for all the world like some monstrous creature with many heads and feet that propel the air. Not only one of these does be proudly place on htg walls but scores of athletic heroes, if he can get them. He also manages to secure a picture of the fastest ocean liner, the record breaking; flying machine, the cup winning yacht, for the normal boy's nature delights In all that ahos a skill, daring, and endurance and these, no matter bow crudely pictured, are calculated to Impress rnanly qualities by subconscious methods. Then, too, he lores to have his family or friends give him several of the in expensive copies of the old English prints knowing gay and brilliant fox hunting scenes, the red coats of the riders coDtrastingsowell with the flat black frames. These make what the boy considers extremely choice decora tions for his room; an4 festooned over and around these gems of art that depict open air activities he likes to have strings of the flags of all nations, which are now made of heavy rich paper In the colors and devices of every country. Flags al Small CoiL These paper flags are pasted orf a kmg strand of strong cord, adapting; itself to all sorts of turns and twists. They cost but 15 cents, but are as decorative and instructive as If valued at $5. Pennant ar? to bi regard ed as next in favor with hm. and he yrants both his class and school pennant as well as the pennants of our most famous colleges. He will stick the poorly developed prints of his own amateurish photography all around the edge of his mirror and in every other available space, but these are dear to him and the considerate mother dots not ridicule them. But as an offset to IJ these loud and In sistent pictures of vainglorious deeds It Is well to present to the boy for his Toora a framed copy In soft s epla of WatC ' beautiful " Sir Galahad," standing In tnystlcreyerU beside his white charger, and beneath the picture inscribe the' words from Tennyson's Galahad ,r: " His strength was as the strength of ten because his heart was pure."

Taffeta suit are a feature of the advanced spring and summer suits. The darker Shades axe used in two eSecU, the richer qualities atowiar-thm teas eotertnsjn ' SBaaaH&eBBawpi' awawawWUH&aU CE&sbEssBwT'IlI Which Is tbebiggtr crop raiser, the ter rifying storm that poura down torrents to ear splitting ac companiment of thunder, or the gen tle drlxxle that frightens no one, but sinks- Into the roots of things? With your eyes toward the goal of success, train your ways to gentleness and th path will shorten. Bluster Is a bad business asset It It Is not alt bluff to cover incompe- ttucyt it Is an Incocsiderateness of others and an innate vulgarity! that makes for hatred. Don't confound gentleness and ruplneness. I know business woman wboe voice is never raised, who is thoughtful, unassum ing; tender, who does her work: without noise or pretense, who could not bluster if she tried, yet that woman never falls to get things dose as she wants them. She Is at the- head of a large force, holds a position of responsibility, there must be many worries and annoyances in her Bfe. for she has been raised over the heads of men and women who covet ner place, yet her manner is as quiet, hejr voice as placid as f nothing could go wrong. And oddly- enough Uttle does go wrong. Stringers who see that slim, gracious wom an, essentially feminine, apparently cere free, wonder how such gentleness can ever maintain discipline. She never frets or nigs, her orders are unassertive as her man ner, yet they ere always obeyed. Ones a subordinate made the mistake of confounding- gentleness apd weakness. He decided, that a woman ne,'ed not be obeyed, that disobedience would go." Tbe quick ness wjth, wtlch that man" wag uniJecelTed has given hha -a lasting understanding of the Iron-hand-velxfit-glove combination. Not that the woman Is a tyrant or unrea sonable, abe has no hankering for authority for authority's sake, but she U self-confident tnotrgh t know "whet she' want's and firm enoirh to see that she gets It Everything-. Jnj that offlce" Is run without friction, for there is nothing to cause it on the chiefs part Her eranlqy respect her, even lore, per, but they realise her Orders must be obeyed and her suggestions mean business. ' Thj?re. no feeling' of being driven, but that gentle woman has a really remarkable -way of getting people to see her point of view, Ko one quite understands how ah dots It: there 1 no cajolery, nq nniue Influ ence or force work, but somehow: most pepple find, themselves agreeing uaconsc)usly with Jier, wishes. WbatsiakesberTpower? It Is because never for a minute does ifo bluster and storm, but carries put her strong life purposes with kindly act, clever diplomacy, gentle con sideration, but absolute; If caJmfirmness. I know another woman In the same bulld-tagwoto-ajea Isia a, goal Won. of Authority. and shows it She is noted for w hat Is slang lly known as "feeling her oats." Her orders are commands Her manner la almost Insuf ferably domineering. There Is no pleasing that woman. She Is critical, overbearing, nagging, and a dread ful stormer over trifles. She has brains and plenty of them, or not for a moment could she hold her position, but as it is. the under current of ructions in the office may event ually drive her out. What results from this blusterT Nothing that makes for peace and progress. The force hate her and obey her because they must So unpleasant Is it to work under the blusterer that good workers, who are also the self-respecting ones, get out at the first opportunity. The force Is kaleidoscopic In its changes and Is steadily lowering: n its per sonnel. To hear the stormer talk you would think the working world is going aamlght to the dogs. She Is obsessed with the Inefficiency of the present generation, and boreeome In her complaints about her office force. Kot long ago I happened to hear the storm er on her favorite tirade before heJf a dozen business women. She was erTedaljy fierce In her denunciations of a stenographer whom she claimed, to have discharged. "The girl was utterly worthless anil Insubordinate," she declared. "Koonewlllkeepheraweek. I'd like to knertr what became of her. Quietly the gentle managerrepUed: "Miss Blank la with me, and has been for rix months-. I am surprlred at what you sar, we find her one of the best workers we have ever had, and she has been promoted twice." "She must have changed migbtllyi" sniffed the other, undaunted In her own Judgment She could not' fee that the weaknee of her employes was up to her: that her aggressive ness and unreasonableness cause the lack of discipline in her office. GenUenea-tbe kind of gentleness that Is quiet strength, not colorless easy going pajs best in every phase of hvros Fear Is absJ-rotrre force for getting' the best out of people. We nay fear the club and yield it perfunctory deference, but be surs any one worth while will get from out of Its sweep as soon aa possible. The parent Trno storms and sags rarely has anything- but surface goodness In her children. Tbey may be models when under mother's or father's eye. but are "little dlrlls" when, restraint is removed. When a little older that child becomes sly If too cowed for open disobedience. v Wltenever I hear a woman complain of her Impertinent servants li suspend Judgment until I learn more of the way of the mis press. If I find her a blusterer I am not sur prised. Nothing breeds rudeness like rude pt3, and the stormng manager brings on herself trials that, the low voiced, gentle, but firm one knows nothing of. Socially It pays least of all to bluster. The' warp And woof of social life Is gentleness, well bred-alias sett-polied manners. The girl who files up when things do not go her way, who storms if she feels herself slighted. Is domineering- to these who "cut tittle ice " and, tries to ram her opinio down her neighbor's throat mar- count on certain ua pcpularlt - 2&4
