case of Frank Hooper he couldn't be held responsible if he tried to sue him
self for damages. Some one had tampered with the brake. When Frank
Hooper left the club and found his car he started to crank it up, supposing
it was just as he left it At the first crank it started, ran straight into him
anj?. over him and dashed down Post street until some one caught it near
Powell; Frank Hooper meanwhile trying to stand on a broken leg to look
after it. A natural indignation overcame Frank Hooper when investigation
disclosed the cause of the seeming sudden madness of a perfectly good car.
Being a cheerful philosopher, Frank Hooper accepts the situation and
serenely counts his compensations. He may never discover the miscreant.
The darkness of Monday night enveloped his misdeed. But Frank Hooper
reflects that, while he can't sue himself for running over himself, nor the man
who demoralized the car, at least no one else can sue him. A man may
demand any amount of the owner of a car that runs him down, and the
courts will uphold him. Frank Hooper doesn't attempt to deny that his
automobile ran over a man Monday night. But through the sheerest good
fortune the man was himself, when it might have been a stranger. Which
more or less confusing, but altogether logical, philosophy suits the circum
The next day at the club they discussed it, and other queer accidents.
One man remembered the time Blank nearly burned to death at the Bohe
mian grove. Years ago it was. One night the Round Table crowd sat late
around the campfire. When they rose at last to go to their rest, Blank said
there was an odor of burning cloth. Some tent on fire, he bet; and every
body sniffed the air. The odor was perfectly distinguishable. Every one
said so, and looked through the trees for a conflagration. Blank started to
lead a tour of investigation. As he stepped in advance of the group it was
seen that Blank was smoldering. His white flannel coat was burned away
across the back and the slow destruction was continuing on its way to his
collar. Just a line of creeping sparks, that might break into flames any |
minute. The queerest thing about it was the way Blank resented being put
out. To extinguish him they had to roll him on the ground, and it took four
of them to do it. Blank was so mad. Acted as though he'd rather have
1 burned. It ought to be explained, the man supposed, that half of them had
*been sitting with their backs to the fire, and Blank sat too close.

GO ON STRIKE
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
NEW YORK, Nov. 7.—Because the
matrons of Manhattan would not hear
of subdued lights r wiggle wobbles,
drapery dances In shady corners and
turkey trots, the "buds" struck. Debu
tantes and second year holdovers vowed
they would boycott the junior cotillon,
which is due for December 3. Mrs.
Arthur M. Dodge, Mrs. Howland Davis,
Mrs. Grover Cleveland—soon to be a
bride once more—Mrs. Archibald Rogers
and other matrons of the committee of
management, were in deep distress.
"Keep your stupid cotillon figures
to yourselves. For us. It Is canned,"
chirped the buds, with a whole lot
more slang thrown in, and a tossing
of tousled heads and a tomboyish flut
tering of tailor made wrinkles in the
wiggle wobble. "No wiggle wobble—
no cotillon." This was the ultimatum
of the buds.
The matrons held a hurried meeting
today when the invitations were due
to be mailed. They decided to capit
ulate. There will he no turkey trot,
no dark doings, no wiggle wobble; like
wise, no pokey old cotillon figures.
The season's junior cotillon will, for
the first time since the dance was made
an established event in the annual cal
endar of New York society, be shorn
of the sedate measures from which it
derives its name.

JORDAN ASKS POWER TO

[Special Dispatch to The Call]
SACRAMENTO, Nov. 7.—The powqj
of revoking , the automobile licenses of
speed violators and all autoists who
willfully violate the state law, is asked
by Secretary of State Jordan in the
biennial report which he filed today in
the governor's office, and which carried
Jordan believes this would call to
time the reckless driving:. He also
points out that in New York the secre
tary of state has a corps of deputies
who apprehend the speed burners and
prosecute them, and he believes this
would be effective as well as productive
of revenue for this state.
Secretary Jordan, in his report rec
ommending the enacting of a "blue
sky" law, similar to the Kansas law, to
curb wildcatting, declares that "un
principled men are using charters
granted by the state as an aid to their
swindling operations." He contends
that every corporation should be made
to show actual investment and sincer
ity of doing a legitimate business when
articles are issued.

Home-Made Beauty Helps
(From the Journal of Fashion)
"Beauty aids made at home are most
satisfactory in results, besides the sav
ing in cost. You can not buy ready
made a shampoo rowder better than
you make by mixing four ounces of
orris root with a package of therox.
Sift a little on the. head, brush out—
and your ecalp is clean and your hair
beautifully lustroue, light, wavy and
easy to do up.
"A quick and painless way to remove
superfluous hair from face or fore
arms is to apply a paste made by mix
ing delatone with a little water. Cover
the hairs with' paste, leave on a few
minutes, then wipe off, wash the skin
and the hairs are gone.
"Eyebrows and eyelashes lack char
acter because they are thin and de
ficient in color. Apply pyroxin with the
finger tips and they will become darker,
grow longer, thicker and silkier.
■'Your husband would rather you
would use mayatone lotion Instead of
greasy face creams or powder that
shows. Dissolve an original package
of mayatone in a half pint of witch
hazel and you have a three months'
supply. It makes the complexion soft,
smooth and satiny, restores youthful
bloom, and prevents growth of hair.
"Mother's Salve is just fine for cuts,
burns, scratches and skin eruptions—healing wlth
out leaving scars. Bub It on briskly and it'will
five almost instant relief from aches, pains and
soreness. It should be ou every lady'» dresetr." i
Tact an Important Factor
A WOMAN who had been very successful as one of
the subordinates in a window trimming department
was hired away by another shop to head their depart
ment. She had been extremely valuable to her first em
ployer because she was so full of original ideas and sug
gestions. In the second shop she was a complete failure
and was soon discharged.
Why? Because, while she knew almost everything
there was to know about window trimming she didn't
know one thing about tact.
She went to her new position bristling with impatience
to revolutionize the department. She hadn't been in the
office an hour before she told a man who had been in the
business twice as long as she had that his ideas were all
her criticisms but little good it did her. She couldn't do all the work hertself.
she couldn't get her subordinates' co-operation; she simply succeeded in thor
oughly antagonizing them, and soon so demoralized the department that it
was necessary to let her go and to find some one who might not know so much
about window trimming, but did know something about tact.
How often one sees people like this woman, who are undeniably more
competent than their neighbors and who are eager to share their superior
intelligence with them, but whose kindness is always ungratefully declined
because of their infuriating manner of offering it.
A neighbor of mine is , a capable woman of superior intelligence* and en
dowed with a really genuine desire to help her friends by sharing what expe
rience and native intelligence have taught her. If she had a little more tact
and a little more respect for other people's opinion she might do a world of
good. But as it is she simply sets people by the ears the minute she tries
to help them.
She comes to me sometimes , and tells me how Bad she feels because Mre.
R., who is a young matron, new at the business both of motherhood and home
making, will not profit by some of her experience. "I am so fond of her,"
she says sadly, "and I really want to help her, but fehe seems to take pleasure
in going contrary to all my advice."
As it happens Mrs. R. also sometimes confides in me, and this is her way
of putting it: "She comes in here and tells me that I don't know a thing about
babies, and that I make my bed's wrong and don't hold the broom right, and
don't know how to run a sewing machine. Sometimes I know she is right,
but she makes me so mad that I wouldn't do her way for anything on earth.
It is'unfortunate to antagonize people when you want to help them, isn't
it? But it is what the person who has no respect for other folks' intelligence
