I do not mean a girl who has gone Into some trade or-profession, for the most domestic "home bird" of my girl readers may be one. Indeed, if she helps to carry out her daily duties successfully she must do her utmost to become a "Dusiness girl" in my sense of the word. And when, in course of time, she passes to a home of her own, she will be at no loss in taking up her | position as housekeeper and mistress, ; She will win the respect of those in her ! employ by showing them that she un j derstands how she should be served, and that while comort is absolutely j required, no extravagance will be al j lowed. She will cause her husband's love for her to increase by showing him how truly bis interest is hers by bringing into play her knowledge of "how to spend and how to save." To make home uncomfortable by mean, unnecessary savings is no real econ omy, but to plan with loving thought how to make every dollar yield its true value is housekeeping in its best sense; for such a "business girl" will make a small income go further and give more real happiness and comfort than would one of double and treble the amount in inexperienced hands, ! to make my girl reader a complete : business one of the type which I write, j she must also learn how to conduct But her charities. Giving indiscriminate ly, without Inquiry or thought, is often more productive of evil than good, and she must be as wise over the spend ing of the portion allotted "to help others," and give as thorough consid eration to it as she does to what she puts apart for her personal concerns. Woman'* Sunday. From Monday morning till Saturday midday the majority of husbands tell i?°_ u they are hard at,work. ..They rim. ey claim as their lawful rest after a hard day's bread-winning. When two of these hard-worked men meet they almost invariably, soonor or later, sneer or joke about the lazy lives women lead. Listen! It the head of a house rises at 6, his wife must rise at 6 in order to have his break©« ready on a clean table fii"S cleanly swept '• «m. Th,, iio-.baml leaves for business, and his wife settles down to the necessarily dull routine of housework. At the mi**day meal she j most probably has to attend to the j wants of two or three children, j the afternoon she must call on her ' neighbors in order to keep up friend I ships, so that her husband may have •me evem In ! people to talk to when he wants variety She also has to do ! ln the evening, the necessary shopping. At about 5 the hardest part of her day begins. First, the evening meal, then the chil dren to be put to bed. then she must try and be lively and amuse her spouse till such time as he chooses to go to bed. As to a wife's Sunday, every one who has ever been a child knows what that means. Good and Bad Style» In Skirts. The skirt buttoneu down the back from belt to hem, and the skirt that is fastened at the back with severe but tons and cord, are both old-fashioned, fortunately, for the fashion was no ex treme to be in good taste. The habit skirt, as is called the skirt that fits like a riding-habit, that has either a seam in the middle of the back or cir cular, and fastens at the left side, is as yet the best. This requires to be carefully made, so that it is not too tight over the back and hips. ugly plain look is obviated by four rows of tucks, very small, and put on j about three inches below the waist, [ This breaks the plain look that is ob Jectionable to the many figures.

I A Face Shampoo. Perhaps every one is aware of the quite magical effect of a face shampoo when tired out. its refreshing powers are so great that the little trouble in volved is not worth considering.

Wash the meal off with fresh hot water, then spray or sponge the face with cold water till the flesh feels nice and firm. This closes the pores.

The daughters of famous actresses rarely go upon the stage. This may be because they have no Inclination that way, or because their careful mammas refuse to countenance any such ambi tion. Lillian Russell's daughter Is be ing educated in a convent; Mrs. Lang try keeps her beautiful Jean apart frpm stage life, and Ellen Terry's daughter,'' Alisa Craig, has settled down to de signing costumes. She did think of becoming an actress, but Miss Terry successfully steered her thoughts in another direction and let her down by easy stages, for when the idea of be ing an actress was reluctantly aban doned a concert pianist was the next goal Ailsa aimed for. Even .that in time was given up, and now the ïesigti ''A ing of lovely gowns for stage wear will take up her time. It is a good idea, for any artistic inspiration which may be lurking in Miss Craig's heart and mind can find embodiment in crea tions of lace and gauze, jewels and satin. _ You Can Got Allen'« Font-Fa-t*'Free.
