It was a rase where a woman was ar-
Itsted for vagrancy. Now, the statute dt

l»m»lns Idle and refuses to work." The
counsel for the defense took hi* stand
op«n the broad, general proposition that

work The Jury, after remaining out the
fewest possible number of minutes, re

I like that counsel and I approve of that

Of course , we all know that woman has
always worked and always will work, and
As fnr the eitent of her labors, there's the
old rhyme to prove that

Moreover, If she didn't work she would

her Invention of "fancy work" to he per

M*er was designed to work all day and
six days in the week, and she never, never
was meant to work for hire Instead of for
ippmval. The bedrock fact Is that a
woman's work must be done like an
artist's, rather than like an urtlsan's. An
artist, you know, can work day and night
for a week, perhaps, and then he simply

Chat With a Typical Woman

muneration, which certainly seems only
fair.
And as It was arranged In the begin
ning, so it continues to be. A woman may
take money for her work because she
need* the ntoney for herself or somebody
else, but as a rule her scorn of money a*
a measure of her achievement Is as deep
as the Instinct which has always told her
that her efforts were not rewarded until
they met with due appreciation. This has
been at the root of a good deal of alleged
feminine extravagance and ignorance of
money values—and one may respect the
root while disapproving of the branch.

Do you rernember the system under which
artists labored In Old Japan? Each was
under the protection of a daimlo or r- u ial
lord who provided the artist with food and
clothes and shelter and spendlng-.noney—
all. In fact, that the artist required. I his
left the latter free to apply his mind to
making his visions of beauty real. Remov
ed alike from poverty and wealth, wiui no
cares and no lesponsibllltles save the cure
to do M* best, the Japanese ar',l it pro
ceeded to create for the Joy of creation
and turned his masterpieces over to the
daimlo, who dealt with them as he would.
The artistic nature of feminine «il*.rs
about the house ha-s always tacitly been
recognised until the dawn of the present
era, by her treatment In dalmo-fashlon by
whatever male relative happened to be re
sponsible for her support. Very often,
doubtless, the method worked badly for
the worker. Industrial competition and
social changes have brought about the
advent of the self-supporting girl, and
while the change Is distinctly to the dis
advantage of society at large, it frequently
works out for the greatly Increased com
fort of the Individual worker. But It has
not yet revolutionized her nature, and
many generations will ccme and go be
fore she loses that little feeling of being
cheated of her Just due* when she doe*
not receive praise as well as go'.d pieces for
work well done.
And the feeling that In working she has
"been good" and done something over and
above her duty. Is still as the breath of her
nostrils to her.

"Well. I practiced two years doing my

All this time the door was shutting after
the girls on their way down to perform,
with the "Good hick" of some light-heart
ed companion ringing In their e»rs, and
opening again to admit them, breathing
hard after their "act." The fragmentary
conversation was a?l good-natured. Utile
bursts of laughter broke out now and
again; the whole impression given one
WJVS of cheer and fellowship: the women,
almost without exception, looked healthy,
i happy and good. On the other aide of
the room was a smart-faced, slender lit

gray shirt waist Mrs, Kline followed the
direction of her visitor's glance.

A Legend of the Lake Washington Indians. 11l
OX the eastern shore of It-kiw-chug
(Washington) there dwelt a pow
erful tribe hyas ahncutty (a great
many years ago). They were rul
ed by a chief who had one son—
a child of ten summers, who would inherit
his father's throne when h» died. Now.
the chief had ten nephews who wished to
take his place, but the chief knew that
their tum-tums (hearts) were bad and he
grieved to think of the sorrow that would
come to his child. When he heard the
Soakhale Tyee (Oreat 3pirit) call him to
the happy hunttrg gro'.m<V> *■■ toWl his
mother, who was by his side, all that wn*
In his heart. He said, "Keep my son near
your side until he Is grown, for „he oad
siwarf) will kill him."
The chief had seen but forty summers
when he wrs laid with his fathers. »»e
was wrapped In the finest of furs and all
his arms and clothing were put in the
hollow trunk of a cedar tree wltn hi?
corpse. The tribe incurred for many suns,
sitting In the ashes of his camp lire and
crawling on their nands and knees in :.ie
dust for a long d!«tance to show their -sor
row.
The grandmother kept the tenas man
(little bay) wits ter all the time. One
day ehe took him with her to gather oi*l-
Ues (berries) and ne strayed a short dis
tance frran her. On? of the bad Indians
took him and carried him up to the slough
and hid him from his people.
When the lumel (old woman) found that
he was gone, she was frantic with grief,
she looked everywhere but found him :,<>t.
Phe went back to her house and told her
friends of the great loss. One of the ten
nephews told he;' that the Stick ElAjsh
