Good health, good morals, good sense and good temper, are the tour essentials for H good wile, i'hese are the indispensab.es. Afer them come the minor advantages ot ot good looks, accomplishments, family po sition. etc. With the first four, married life will he comfortable and happy.

In large cities is a constant demand for good Fitters ut salaries ranging from $tft to $-'0 a week. There are hundreds of young women throughout the country who have the taste and talent to fill such positions; all they want is an opportunity, and a knowledge of the laws that govern th« art of dress-making. A want of this knowledge precludes the possibility of reaching a high position as Cutter and Fitter. We will help you in this matter. We teach you in detail the art of cutting. That our me thod is nut hard to learn is clearly demonstra ted by the following testimonials of some of the best citizens of Grafton, W. Va. Wecould give several columnsof such and even stronger: Grafton, W. Va. February, lt^O. So far as I have teste ’ the National Garment Cutter System, I find it to be all it is recorn menaeu ana an nronny recomuieuu a an. Respectfully, Mbs. II. T. Atiiey, Grafton, W. Va., February, 18«i). Until quite recently I never attempted to cut a garment of any kind in my life. After tak ing four lessons I cut m v sister a basque which lilted perleclly without a change of seams. Eva Hill. Gkaktox, W Va. After a thorough examination I believe the National Garment Cutter to be superior to any other system in use, it being simple, easily un derstood and correct. It lias advantages pos sessed by no other method, as it embraces within its range all kinds of garments worn by men, women and children, including full dra pery and trimmings. Whenever a la«ly has cutting to do she needs a Garment Cutter.. I have had quite an experience in dress-making and cheerfully recommend it to all in need of any help in cutting clothing for themselves or family. 1 have used other systems but nave iaid them aside and purchased the National Garment Cutter and am highly pleased with its lining, as it adds wonderfully to the ap pearance of the form.
