"It is a great convenience to us," explained the senior partner. "You see, I can communicate with all our departments without moving from my nest here," "My, that's wonderful!" said Giles, -Can 1 try it for myself?" "Certainly."

She ex plained her topic carefully, and, as an .aid to understanding, she gave each pupil a card bearing the picture of a boy fiahlng. "Bven pleasure," she said, "requires the exercise of patience. See the boy fishing; he must sit and wait and wait. He must be patient." Having treated the subject fully she began with the simplest, most prac tical question: "And now can any little boy tell me what we need most when we go fish ing?" The answer was quickly shouted with one voice: "Balt!" Expert Testimony, "They eay," declared Brown, ' that twins are always alike in disposition— do the same things at the same time.

Every good girl has the making of a heroine. All she needs is the opportunity. , It is, of course, too bad that so many bachelor girls are born to blush unseen and waste their sweetness on the desert air. And the bachelor men. Think what they are missing ! There is one thing absolutely neces sary for a happy union and that is love, that mysterious "something," the divine flame which only death can quench. A good wife is heaven's best gift to man, for, after all, what mission in this world can supersede that of the wife and mother, who holds high her husband's honor and loves her children and their welfare better than all the outside honors the world can bestow ? The great majority of all marriages of the present day are successful, for men and women are becoming wiser and more refined through the cumulative force of truth and love. My married friends tell me that if the unmarried folk really know what a world of tenderness and devotion is felt, lived and expressed to ward each other among husbands and wives of the present day they would be rather more eager than otherwise to enter the state of matrimony, and that in the home one finds, or should find, mutuality, reciprocity, co-opera tion and service. The inefficiency of the pupils of our schools in the matter of spelling has at last been discovered. , To the weary business man the news will come with great relief and the solution of the difficulty will cause rejoicing, as the remedy is' so simple, for all that is necessary is'to abolish the English language and use signs. The important discovery has been made by a committee of twenty teaohera and principals, and like all great discoveries it ia the essence of simplicity. The report reads: "The senseless and barbarous combination of letters and sounds in the English language is responsible for the poor spelling of public school children." €]] Cause of Poor Spelling Among Children J for is of By F. LYONS, Milwaukee, Wie. This committee prepared lists of words and submitted them to pu pils of fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades, with this result: A group of 78 eighth grade pupils made a total of 237 errors in spelling eight words, viz. : Alleys, garage, changeable, competent, curable, engineer, definite, privilege. Another group of 196 eighth grade pupils made 491 errore in spell ing nine words, viz.: Constitution, necessary, Mexican, representative, cupful, senators, submarine, chocolate, luxury. A group of 90 fifth grade pupils made 376 errors in spelling seven words, viz.: Arithmetic, relative, truant, answered, Illinois, erase, vege table. Of the 90 pupils but 24 could spell the name of their own state. This report may be satisfactory to the committee, but I submit there must be something radically wrong when such a showing of inefficiency is made. I fail to find in the list of words given any "senseless and bar barous combinations of letters and sounds." I One of the most essen tial features of the welfare and health of children has been overlooked. The sum mer vacation is as essential to the child's health as is the food consumed €][ Welfare and Health of Children Overlooked By JULIUS AVENDORPH, Chicago in many cases a great deal more so. Therefore, it seems rather strange that some of the public spirited 1 individuals or organizations who are interested in the children's welfare do not make a concentrated effort toward inter esting the board of education in the direction of not opening the schools until September 16 and closing them June 15. June of this year was somewhat of an exception. Nevertheless, we had a sufficient number of days that were too hot to have children housed indoors, and in many cases in overcrowded rooms. This is far from being beneficial or healthful. Why do fresh air champions remain silent on this all important matter ? There ought to be a united effort on the part of the physicians to bring about a change such as that suggested. This does not mean tha+ every child must be sent to the country. It does mean that each child would have the benefit of breathing pure air and that in itself means better health. Co-operation of all interested agencies ought to be solicited in an effort to give the school children three full months' vacation. The extra month of outdoor life would be a greater benefit to the in dividual child's health than the extra month's salary to the teachers, deed, I fully believe all the teachers would welcome such a change.

' Sweater-Coats for Outing Wear m I \ : •; I e % -, m mm I j mm , * if J UST the most fashionable garment for mountain and seaside resorts, where mornings and evenings bring exhilarating breezes with a snappy chill in them, is the Bilk sweater-coat. These smart garments are selling freely at figures which rather take one's breath away, thirty dollars each seems a high price for a sweater of any sort. But there is no difficulty In finding people who are quite willing to pay it. Once let fashionables, and their imitators, get used to unusual prices and there Is not telling the length to which they will go. Besides the sweaters and sweater coats of silk—there are others. Those of wood fiber, which looks like silk, and Is as strong or stronger, are much lower In price, about half as high. Then there are splendid wool sweat ers in many colors and varieties of design.

And whether his lady mother has made his gar ments with her own hands or left that pleasant task to those who make a business of it, he looks like all his mates in the democracy of boyhood. The little boy must be clothed In the summertime in washable fabrics. The difficult feat of teaching him to keep clean is a part of his education, ex actly as essential ae teaching him to read. For daily wear he romps In blouses and short pants made tn wash rble colored fabrics, such as gleg ham, linens, crash, madraB and other strong weaves. Heavy linens and piques and certain specially woven cot ton fabrics In white are required for his dress occasions. These fabrics are so Inexpensive and the little suits are so easily made that it Is no great task to make up his short-lived summer wardrobe. But manufacturers turn out quantities of clothes for children, well designed and well made, at a cost of production so low that It is hardly worth while ia make them at home. Young Embroiderers. Once the little girl is started upon her embrtodery career it will not be long before she wishes to embroider her own Initial. There are a number of plain initials on the market that should be simple enough for the young embroidered to attempt. If, however, the solid stitch proves at first too difficult, the initial can be very well In outline stitch. Fro quently there Is some discussion in n household of several children as to "he belongings of each. When clothea fortify their wearer against a chill. The cool air, dropping down from frosty mountain tops, and breezes that have traveled from the land of ice bergs to that of seaside hotels, .are the reasons for the existence of sweat ers. They stand daily UBe, and manu facturers are endeavoring to make them attractive, and have, tn fact, suc ceeded In doing some very beautiful: knitting. It would not do to get too far away from simplicity, and It Is In new ways of knitting that the best ofi new attractions He. The sweater for a little girl, shown here, could hardly be plainer. A close ly knitted border and a pocket at each side are not purely decorative figures, but they afford all the details of orna mentation except the border of fancy: knitting about the bottom. On sweater coats for grownups there are collars in several styles, which add much to their finish. But aside from this they are about the' same as the model shown In the plo ture. One of their best efforts is shown in the Illustration given with this ar ticle. It Is a suit of white pique with plain short pants and belted blouse. The blouse opens over a small "V" shaped vest which allows a bit of dec oration In the form of a spray of lit tle flowers and leaves embroidered in white. The sailor collar la finished with scallops edged with buttonhole stitch, instead^ of a hem. This Is about all the decorating that one may ex pect to find In even the dressiest garb tor the small boy. In order that the blouse may set well a few boxplaits run from shoul der to hem. The loose belt, at the fabric, is slipped through narrow straps, also of the pique. The belt drops toward the front and may bt fastened with a buckle or clasp fasten ers or preferably buttons and button holes. The sleeves are' rather full and short enough to escape the wrist. Short white socks and low canvas pumps finish the toilet of the young gentleman, and he will not meet an other better dressed than himself.

"I thought I'd die laughing at the ri diculousness of It. I never saw any thing In my life that was half so funny. How cleverly he pulled the wool over her eyes, and what a fool he made of her. Dear me, I have to laugh out loud, even now, whenever I think of It." "Yes, It was great. I'm so glad you enjoyed It.

In the days of the Pharaohs—no less than in the days of the Roman empire —woman was on a plane of equality with man. There Is thus, perhaps, nothing exorbitant now In her de mand for the vote. She la only ask ing for a little of her own back. Sir Gaston Maspero has unearthed some Pharaonic papyri which throw an. interesting light on the Pharaonic con sideration of woman and marriage. In those days mankind evidently fa vored a kind of trial marriage, and this marriage woman entered ôn terms of perfect equality, or even, perhaps, on terms of superiority. This was the usual Pharanoic mar riage contract, as deciphered by Sir Gaston Maspero: "Thou takest me to be thy wife and thou glvest unto me a dowry. If it so hap that I tire of thee or that I cast my eyes on another than thee, I wilt return unto thee a part of thy dowry and will go where good seemeth unto me." Just the Thing. She was an unsophisticated damsel, and It was with a bashful air that she sidled up to the necktie counter in the outfitting stores. "I want a tie for my yonng man," she said to the polite assistant. "Something appropriate to hts tastes; he's a keen footballer, you know." "Perhaps you can tell me his club colors?" suggested the salesman. "Sorry," was the maiden's answer, "but I really forget them. ' Then an idea of dazzling brilliance seized her. "Just the thing," she cooed, estat lcally. "Show me some semi-final ties, please."
