Sketch of Life
Thomas Collier Platt the easy
boss of the earlier and brighter days
was for many years not only tho Re
publican leader of his state but a
figure In national politics rtood shoul
der to shoulder with men of such
rank and reputation as tho Into Ma
thew Stanley Quay of Pennsylvania
Both were men of exceptional Intel
lectual attainments and both turned
them with signal success to part
Quay died still a power Platt out
lived his time and felt himself In late
I years out of touch with the moving
oplrit of events
In twenty years in congress las
G Blame described Plntt as a busi
nessman of great personal popular
ity He has an aptitude for public
affairs and Is a man of strong Infhi
pnce in his state Ho Is no debater
1 but has Strong common sense and
quick judgment of men Yet with all
his native Judgment wide experience
I and skill as an organizer it became
the fate of Platt to win romembrance
j more for his associations with others
than for anything he did of bin own
initiative Twice In his life Platt I
was the center of the national stages
once when he resigned wllh Roscoe j

much against RooseeliR better Judg

larations that nothing could Induce
him to accept the nomination
Irony Mocks Wisdom
There could not he a better Instance I
of Platts skill in persuasion and man
Ipulallon or of the Irony that mocked
his ripest wisdom McKinley was
shot Roosevelt became president and
the days of Plaits domination in the
state lapsed Into senility
His bodily strength declined rapid
ly He made a second nwrrlago which
ended in the courts and he was sued I
by Mao Wood formerly a clerk In I
tho government employ for a divorce I
on the strength of a third marriage I
novcr proved to hoc taken place
The episode with Conkllng which
Was nol exceeded In public excite
ment say the newspaper files of that
day by any event In the civil war
was as follows
Platt was elected to tho senate In
1SS1 He and his colleague Conkling
became embroiled with Garfield In a
bitter controversy over the appoint I
ment of William H Robertson to be
collector of the port of Xow York
The selection was distasteful to the
Now York organization and both Platt
and Conkllng refused to confirm it
In the senate Thereupon President
Garfield withdrew other nominations
made at their Instigation among them
one Stewart L Woodford to be Unit
cd States district attorney and Lou
F Payne recently remembered as an
accelerator of public opinion to be
United States marshal Finding them
selves In a hopeless deadlock Platt

of 1S8S and died of exposure Platt
was supposed to bo frozen out of poll
lies but he turned his attention to
building Influence In the southern tier I
of New York counties became a stale
leader again In 1804 and In 1S97 was
elected a second time to the United
Slates senate nucceeding David Ben
nett Hill
He fell out with Governor Frank
Black and to defeat his renomlnatlon
put forward Theodore Roosevelt a
type whoso undeveloped possibilities
he did not justly esllmate It was
Roosevelts rapid progress toward pop
ularity and power that later led Platt
to suggest him for the vice presiden
cy hoping that In the quiet of that
dignified office he might he forgot

tention to challenges from Tommy
Murphy Owen Moran oY any other
anplrant until his theatrical contract
here Is one question which often
puzzles a business girl when she llrst
goes to work and that is how to be
have to her masculine associates
the men In the office And it is
right here that any number of well
intentioned girls mako sonic great
There are many girls who think I
no mailer If they flirt a little bit
with the men with whom they work
from day to day l seems to i
to add a splco of fun to the ofllce grind
this silly coquetting
The bookkeeper offers to sharpen
pencils or to find an eraser He has
been attracted manlike b the
alrcted mnnlkl by pret
ty pink cheeks and bright ayes of
Miss New Comer And Miss Now
Comer Instead of thanking him frank
ly and then going on with her work i
giggles foolishly and arches
foolshlr her eye
brows at him and at lunch tlmo he
tells the bookkeeper from the outside
ofl leo Gee sties easy
Unfortunately Miss New Comer
doesnt hear him She thinks she
has made a conquest and goes on
her way smiling to herself In her
selfsatisfied vanity And whon tho
bookkeeper from the outside office
comes In and stares and pays her a
bold compliment she tosses her head
and Is more pleased with herself ihai m
eYorl she only knew what Jhosc men
really thin of her 11 business
girls could only realize that coquetry
IK not for office hours
Reputation in Her Own Hands
The girl In an ofllce makes or mars
her own reputation with her fellow
workers If she moots their advances
politely not too coldly hut In sim H
ple frank friendliness making it plain
however that her work Is her real
Interest be assured she will nero
meet with anything hit tho kindest
and most considerate treatment The
men who work beside her will bo real
I friends ready to help and sivc good
counsel and better sill always speak
ing of her In lerms of the highest re
spect and admiration
S much for the men who work on
lImo same level with herself Now for
the men who arc her superiors In
the office Here IB an entirely dif
ferent problem which must however
be met in exactly the same way
Many a girl goes to her first posl
ton with her head Bluffed full of non
sense aboui rich
aholt employers who fall
In love with their stenographers mar
ry at once after whirlwind courtships
and for all the
rest of their lives
these lucky damseld live In luxury un
Well there may be such Instances
brt the average is about ono in a mil
lion So our hustnnss girl had letter
devote herself to taking Mr Headof
IheFirms letters accurately and an
swering tho telephone Intelligently
and making herself Invaluable in the
ofllce generally without any though
of matrimonial chances
Slcnographer Not a Confidant
One hears a good bit too about em
ployor who
though married pay a
great deal of attention to their tfccre
tare give them presents take them
out to luncheon and dinner and the
theater and so on If any business
girl finds that she has an employer
of this sort she had better look for
another Job at once No sclfreKnoeL p
in girl will accept compromising al
tentlon or presents from a married
man and the fact that he Is her em
ployer makes this rule of common de
cency no less binding
The business girl mubl discourage
her employer or any of her male of
fice associates from talking to her
of their private affairs When Mr
Head of the Firm comes In In the
morning and says be has an awful
cold It is nol his secretarys place
to be unduly sympathetic If how
ever he asks her to go out and buy
some medicine for him It assuredly
is her place to go cheerfully and
If at any lime her employer BO for
gets himself as to toll her something
of his life and occupations away from
the office the secretary should listen
respecifully and answer politely and
then forget about what hp has said
Many a man In an czanblvo mood Will
loll thinS which fairly makes his
blood run cold to remember after
ward rcrenr arer I
Keep your employers confidence
of this sort which ho should have
never made as Inviolate as you keep
your knowledge of his business af
fairs And remember that the habit
of talking loo much Is one which has
lost many a bright girl her position
The girl who goes to work with tho
Idea that abe
will metl a number of

object of ofllce gossip Any girl who
has worked for any length of lime
knows well that to be gossiped about
In ones office Is a most unen able
Familiarity to DC Discouraged
Another thing that the girl In the
office must be sure to do IB to dis
courage familiarity Dont hesitate
to call down sharply the mnn who
ventures on calling you dearie or
girlie as I once knew a disgrace
ful old man In a big office to call ov
cry girl who came there As lit had
a position of Importance more than
one girl put up with his ImperMnenc
rather than lose her position hut ono
day a grllly little western girl wan

the first dearie that came In her di
rection was greeted with MJ s Smith
I please In a tone that showed she
was not goln to permit any nonsense
The man accepted the hint and never
offended again and 1 do him the

he descried It and he could hardly

her male associates and coworkera

From big atudlu window Dr frill
cus FlubDubbe gazed wearily at thr
leaden sky and the grit and Rrimo
of our comparably dirty city And
this week said he turning to the
Program Std Class we have Tjrh
nlkowahys Pathetic symphony Pa
Ihellc Is a mild term
I love It said Mrs Glvu A Payee
Dont rOi lovo It Miss Pants
I could expire while the last
movement Is playing declared Potta
claspIng her hands
I s sympathise pursued Dr Duhb
with a lady Who writes me that she
IB KO gloom that she Is leading town
this week for fear ahe might go to
hear the symphony for she says II
I heard It I should Just howl Yes
lie Pathetic Is the climax of all
gloom and should be played In the
fall when we are fresh and strong
and not In the late winter or spring
when our vitality Is running low
But ah such heucnly melan
choly murmured Mrs BorenSlyffe
Such celestial mumps said Miss
Gay Vote
Just at tho last movement adagio
lamentoso Is the clnmlx of
ntoso all gloom
said Dr Dubbe so the chord of the
augmented sixfive Is the climax of
he climax of the dolorous theme and
the poissant E aharp Is the climax
of the chord One might say ihat
K sharp was the keynote of Esrhal
wokswys life
Why should the augmented sixfive
be so bad asked r Fuller
Because In this case the sixth Is
omitted replied Iho Doctor Tho
augmented sixfive Is a very peculiar
chord 1 derives from two tonics
and hence Is a Teutonic or Gorman
chord and not a French chord as
ole have maintained
But why Is tho E sharp In the
chord of the augmented Blxflve so
anguishful inquired Miss SaraBand
Because It is limo sharpest tone
said Dr Dubbe I shall go Into this
matter more detailfully so that an in
fant will be able 10 understand It
I am sure Doctor that you have
already stated It with admirable clar
ity said Mrs Glvu A Payne
As plain as a church seen by a
flash of lightning contributed Miss
Gay Vote
That tbensall the Doctor 13
a tribute to your perspicacity rather
than to my powers of clLcldation
