H. HARRIMAN. Great Financier Described by Maga zine Writer. E. H. Harriman Is described and in terpreted in the April American Maga zine. Following is a view of the man at close range: "He is not, in person, an appalling figures nothing like the steely-eyed and panther limbed heroes that were the subjects of Tom Lawson's twice-told tales. He is short of stature, but by no means the frail creature that the more enthusiastic Harrimanoclasts have .pictured. It would make these earnest souls very happy indeed if they knew - Sir. Harriman was hollow cheeked and had a cough. But he isn't and hasn't. It is too bad, but the facts must be stated. No consistent invalid could undorgo the strain that a man Is under who works for nearly half a century for the world's championship in unpopularity. "Mr. Harriman is a big little man." Until recently he was a good deal of an athlete, and he is still muscular, pow erful and active. He looks at least ten years younger than his age and ap pears to be about as happy in his wick edness as Andrew Carnegie, who is both good and popular in his virtue. "In manner he. is decidedly abrupt to the point of impoliteness, vigorous in his language and bold in his criticisms. He so persistently adopts a tone of command in dealing with everybody that one might think, if one did not know of his great achievements, that he assumed the manner to conceal "vacancy."

To begin on the simple life, I should suggest In the first place elimination. Go over your dwellings and remove ev ery thing that Is not going to be used the coming year. I could mention hun dreds of houses in this city crowded from garret to cellar with things 'that only collect dust, that will not be used! for fourteen years, that are not beauti ful and only add to the labor In keep ing things as they should be In the home spotlessly clean. Can't we free ourselves from the de sire to retain everything we ever pos sessed; things that have no 'beauty, no utility? I.know two spinsters, the last of their race, who ive In houses filled with heirlooms, which It requires the greater part of their time to take care of. I said to one of them: "Why do you not give some of these things to museums? Take some of that old English pewter that is not made now. You have enough to give to five differ ent museums. There it would be price less., many people would have the ben efit of it, It would be in a fl reproof building, which your home is not. Youi would know that it is placed as you would like it to be while you are still alive, and you would free yourself fori reading, traveling friends." . and entertainingi stop giving presents at stated inter- . - vals. We wish to make presents to our friends, but when it is necessary . to do so at a certain time, when we may be busy or ill, It becomes a bur- , den. Let us abandon the practice. It ' would be better for the giver and bet- company; accepting the appropriation ter for the receiver. I would! do the j granted by congress for the agrloul same with wedding presents.

Finally, having borne It as ong as she cottd, she said one day to the maid: "Mary, if that vase shoud be broken even a little I woud give it away." The maid report ed in a few days that the vase had been broken, and it was duy disposed of. Have we any right to put people to subterfuges of 'that kind? We can simplify our houses and their furnishings. Have moldings andi door casings made" no pace for dust, and se lect furniture with the same end In view. A woman I know who has been building a house has had both ..tone . won woric madfl so that nt will not hold' dust, and It ls a great saving of time and effort. Miss Adele ,M.
