Many New York women who patron ize a new dressmaker for the first time propound an embarrassing ques tion. "Have you a diploma?" they ask. "I didn't know what answer to make to the first customer that put that question to me," said one dressmaker. •'I certainly did not have a diploma. I knew how to sew, but I had no cer tificate to that effect. Finally I found that many women have suffered so grievously nt the hands of incompe tents that they were unwilling to trust their work to a person who could not show some guarantee of experience and efficiency, so, although I knew more about sewing than half the fash ionable dressmakers in town, I actual ly worked in one such establishment for four months so that I could paint to a printed diploma which says, "For merly with Mme. A. of Fifth avenue.' It pays any dressmaker to arm herself with credentials of that kind. She ought to have her diploma framed and hung on the wall like a doctor's diplo ma, so as to give confidence to doubt 'ng customers."—New York Sun. Great Schemers.

"There were several guests on the waiting list for rooms yester day. One traveling man came up to the desk holding his hand to his stomach, spying he was so sick he must have a room at once. He was accommodated. In a few minutes an other traveling man who was among the list of guests waiting for rooms, came up and said he had boarded a sleeper at 2 o'clock in the morning and tried to get some sleep, but that it ran into an open switch and gave him such a shaking up he eouldnt sleep. He said he was almost dead with exhaus tion and loss of sleep and must have a room at once. Hardly had he gone to his room when a third one came up and said he, too, must have a room im mediately. What do you suppose his reason was? He said a horse fell on him the day before, and he thought he was injured internally."—Kansas City Star. Pepper and Onions and Garlic and— At a restaurant downtown, redolent of pepper and garlic, where swarthy representatives of Spain and all the Spanish-American countries gather ev ery day at the lunch hour a lone Amer ican, accustomed to strictly unseason ed food, was glancing apprehensively at the bill of fare.
