The airy woman said to thu thoughtful woman, "Isn't Itndivnd ful state of affairs when you can't tell the shop girl or serving girl from the lady?" "You sec a stunning looking girl on the street now-a-days dressed faultlessly, with an air of genuine style, and you are never sure wheth er she will bring you your dinner at the hotel or lie presented "at some swell function art a debutante of the season. "livery line weave of cloth Is fol lowed so soon by a cheap Imitation that you see your high-priced dress reproduced by all classes before you have worn it twice. "The lirllllanCjmsKcs for the dia mond nine times out of ten. IU short the art of imitation has lecii so high ly developed that the genuine arti cle Is losing Its value. What Is the use of paying a Mg price for some thing when you can get a cheap Imi tation that will pass for the real thing with ninety-nine out of a hun dred? I tell you It is the day nud age of shams and what the end will Ik? is hard to tell." The thoughtful woman smiled. "The end." she said "will be that your tine lady will have to cultivate some other mark of su-jH-rlority than clothes, and It Is tobe hoied she will neverattaln anything so high and good that will be out of reach of any who aspire to follow her. Hod created the shop girl ami the lady in the same likeness anil why one should lie arrayed la gold, lace and silk and the other iu coarse cloth, Just to distinguish them, takes one back to centuries when a person must be worth a lixed amount be fore he could wear lace." "We are supposed to have advanc ed since that age. We have free schools and compulsory education, the ballot Is given to every eltlzeii, no moneyed requirements are made for either Institution, yet some arc thoughtless euough tool dec t because the girl who works for her living presents as good an appearance as the one surrounded by wealth and luxury, when in truth this is the greatest argument in favor of the grand leveling of all people. If tine clothes are prized Just because they are out of reach of the majority of jieople, who must form an audience to admire and envy them, It were letter that all the finery of the earth were destroyed. Tar be It from me to oliject to liuely arrayed woman, she Is In herself a work of art that is to be admired and praised, but no class should have a monopoly on fine clothe and good looks. It Is a happy day Indeed when the dress does not Indicate the station la life. When this distinction has entirely disappeared people will turn their attention to higher and lietter things. "America has advanced far beyond all other nations la this respect, as she has In others. Her citizens are supposed to have equal rights and privileges, mo why should they not present the same apK'arance? Would not It be a delight to the eye to pass down n city street where every man ami woman was well and becoming ly dressed? That day may never dawn In Its pertectlon, but we should not lament the approach that' Is being made to It. Speed the day of goods that Is both pretty and cheap, and when one's appearance depends solely upon personal taste, and not purse." The airy woman wan not prepared for that klud of argument, but she still had the conviction which she could neither defend nor define, that her rights were being encroached upon In the matter of dress. Khe lie longed to the old school, but the time will come when even such as she M ill lie turned from that way of thinking. The W. O. T.

There is a great deal of truth in the following statement taken I from the Hall County Herald: j Quan ah has had some exper ience in the railway bonus bus iness, and it seems to have sour ed on their stomachs. The Tribune-Chief speaks of the matter as follows: ,lIf the Pan handle towns would spend more money advertising- for actual settlers and less for bonuses to railroads they would fare much better. Amarillo, for instance, has secured several roads, yet the large pastures run right into the town and the farmer is ex cluded. Railroads do not help towns much. The fanner and the tin bucket brigade are the jbesttowu builders." The fact 'is Quanah and other towns i which have secured railroads at ;reat expense have found their j trade territory cut away and no j corresponding benefit.

State KH'us'l School Homl.s According to the Hall County Herald, the state school depart ment has refused to purchase the Memphis school bonds. The Herald says: The reason given for the re fusal is that they are for a sum I greater than 5 per cent of the real estate values of the district. While they are lower than the total amount that might have been issued under the to tal valuations, and have been j approved as all right still they insist that the real estate values is not as great as it should be. 1 have purchased the boot and shoe shop formerly owned by Harry Miller, and will conduct the same at the old stand, (Jlvenie a trial.
