“It Isn’t so!/' declared the man.
“You're Just saying It to try to get a
rise out of mo! You really don't be
lieve It!"
"Indeed I do!" asserted the girl In
the green foulard gown. "It is, as I
say, perfectly true that all a man
cares about Is being entertained and
amused. What difference does it
make to him if a girl has a kind heart
and is angelic to her mother? All
that appeals to him is her ability to
inake an idle hour pass pleasantly!
"Do you suppose,” sho demanded,
“that he cares at all If she gives up a
bridge party to v'.slt the sick? Is he
IKJssessed of passionate admiration for
her If she can broil a beefsteak or if
she alw’ays keeps her clothes mended
neatly and the buttons sewed on her
shirtwaists? Not he! He would w’alk

"Fiddlesticks!” scoffed the man.
"How absurd! Don’t you glvo men
credit for any sense?”
"Not much,” admitted the girl, with
calm frankness. "If you men had any
aense you wouldn’t bo so taken in as
you are nine times out of ten.
“I knew a man once who was per
fectly crazy about a girl because sho
always was In such bubbling good
spirits and simply effervesced with
fun and life,” went on the girl in the
green foulard. “So ho married her. It
took him about a year to discover that
Betty had been so carefree because
sho absolutely refused to be bothered
with anything. She kept her good
spirits because she shoveled responsi
bility off on anybody who happened to
be handy, and she effervesced because
sho wasn’t capable of a serious
thought. It is kind of wearing on a
man when ho conies home and says
that the bank has failed and they are
penniless if his wife yawns languidly
and says, ‘Hear me! Well, lot's not
think about it. I^et’s go to the theater
and cheer up. And, darling, get bo*
seats, because I like them better!'
"This man stood it till his wife gave
a big card party when he was sick
with pneumonia, because sho said she
positively could not stand the dullness
of the house. What did he do? Oh,
he just died. Evidently he thought
that was the quickest way out.”
"All girls who are cheerful and
amusing are not heartless,” insisted
the man. “Wo men can tell the real
thing! We appreciate real worth—’’
"Bosh!” intrrupted the girl in the
green foulard gown shortly. "Excuse
my rudeness, but I couldn’t help it.
Ileal worth, you know. Is terribly
tiring, because it is generally quiet
and serious, and nowadays everybody
runs from seriousness. When you are
picking out a girl on whom to call you
don’t choose one becauso she has col
lected more money for the heathen
than anyone else or can manage a
downtown business, do you? I should
say not! You run over the list of your
acquaintances and murmur. ‘Grade?

a book—which sho has bought herself
—and if she eats candy it is sure to

chocolates from the confectionery
stores. But I’ll warrant that Grade
could build a fair-sized cottage out of
her discarded candy boxes!”
"Well, a fellow doesn’t like a
stick,” protested the man. "You are
unfair. It quite irritates me! You
know it Isn’t so! Why, Just let me
tell you—”
"I know precisely what you are go
Ing to Bay,” Interrupted the girl In the
green foulard gown. “You are going
to burst Into a rhapsody on the In*
tense feeling a man has for the splen

curl in a distracting way! Oh, you
can't blame a man for being so fool
ish. Curling lashes are lots nicer to

"If you'll keep still a minute,” said
the man, “I'll demolish all your argu

Mourning Apparel
THE death of England's king throws
nearly all the courts of Europe
Into mourning and in consequence
the subjects of mourning apparel and
mourning etiquette are up for con
sideration more generally than for
many years. Customs change slowly,
especially those which rule in matters
of greatest moment. Rules of eti
quette governing in the events of
death, marriage, births and social
(unctions of high importance have all
been carefully thought out and nre
the crystalized expressions of con
sideration for others. They nre form
ulated from the conduct of those
whose good taste and keen intuitions
Put them in position to set examples.
Much latitude is allowed individual
taste In the matter of mourning np
parel. Some people decry any special
dress for those in mourning, on the
ground that we should not divide our
sorrows with others. Hut the great
majority feel that the assumption of
mourning attire is imperative as a
sign of respect to the dead or to his
family as well as an outward token
of a sense of loss. To ignore a death
seems to cast a slight upon the worth
of the departed soul; therefore, an in
creasing number of persons in the
best social circles assume what Is
called “complimentary mourning.”
This is either a badge of mourning of
some sort, or the wearing of black for
a short term. This Is a different mat
ter from the mourning apparel as
sumed by members of a family. Com
plimentary mourning does not involve
the restrictions which that of rela
tives assumes. Certain fabrics are
chosen for those in mourning. These
are crape, silk genadine, nuns-veiling,
bombazine, net, uncut velvet, crepe-de
chine, mourning silks, felt, voile and
other fabrics of a jet black hue and
soft luster or dull finish. Crape is
recognized as the correct fabric for
first mourning everywhere, and is in
fact the insignia of mourning. Crape
is used as a finish, or decoration, on
other fabrics, and sometimes entire
garments nre made of it. It Is a beau
tiful fabric made of silk and having

Like a Rose.
The rosette on a plain sailor hat
gives all the richness necessary.
Folded like a rose into a round shape,
a bias piece of Persian silk has been
so manipulated that Its final effect
would suggest both espenaa and art
diagonal rib or crinkle across the fur
face. It is made in both dull and
silky luster; the dull finish is consid
ered the more elegant. Recently it is
much used in dress accessories, such
as collars, cuffs and bands, and in
stolcB and muffs, for those !n deep
mourning. Silk grenadine Is very gen
erally worn In this country for veils,
as shown In Fig. 1. It Is light in
weight, supple and durable. It is UBed
in the open weaves for face veils and
Is often bordered. For summer, large
mesh silk veils, bordered with a fold
of crape, are worn, with millinery
made of or trimmed with these ma
terials, the crape nearly always ap
pearing in a flat border or fold. Eng
lish manufacturers have succeeded in
waterproofing these fabrics so that
rain or moisture dots them no harm.
The transition from deep mourning
to colors is accomplished gradually.
After a certain period of time, more
or less long at the discretion of the
wearer, the mourning veil is discard
ed; next crape Is eliminated. The at
tire is next all black, but not neces
sarily of recognized mourning fabrics.
After black, gray, the cold lavenders
and white are worn. White may be
worn with black accessories for
mourning, and is correct, but is more
often assumed for what is called "sec
ond mourning,” that is, in the period
of transition from mourning to colors.
There is nothing so dignified and
nothing more elegant than a well
chosen mourning costume. In choosing
models or patterns for making inourn
gowns or hats (or any garment)
plain, neat and elegant designs are
correct. Nothing “fussy” is admissi
ble, No extremes of the mode are to
bo considered. For millinery neither
very large or very small hats, but
those in shapes which are always
w'orn should be selected. Exquisite
workmanship must characterize the
work of both milliner and dressma
ker. Fortunately the regular mourn
ing fabrics, crape, bombazine and nuns
veiling, all are adapted to the sort of
work required.
Pin Case An Almost Indispensable
Requisite When One Is on a
A new form of the well-known pin
case for traveling is being shown just
now that makes acceptable prizes or
a present for European travelers.
The case is formed like a wallet
with a flap at the side that buttons
over with a patent clasp. This l
made of cardboard covered first with
cotton batting, then with cretonne,
fancy brocades, ribbons or with an
embroidered linen case.
Inside there Is a single leaf adjust
ed to back of case like the page of a
book. This is covered on both sides
with white eiderdown or flannel,
which is carried over to line the sides
of case as well.
In this lining Is stuck on the outer
l cast safety pins In all sizes and col
ors. On both sides of the inner page
are arranged big headed pins In vari
ous sizes and color. These can form
fancy borders or a star figure below
and a border or other artistic group
These cases may be made in any
convenient size; one four by flva
Inches gives plenty of space.
8ilk Seams.
The making of a silk b’ouse is ren*
dered all the more difficult, where the
homo dressmaker Is concerned. by
the fact that the seant to lie flat must
be Ironed, while a hot iron Is only too
apt to mark the allk indelibly By
far the best course to pursue Is that
of passing each seam, open or closed,
over the upturned edge of a warm
Iron. With both hands the seam
should be pulled taut and slowly
passed over the iron, care being taken
to avoid touching more than the
ream with the point or side and there
by marking the material underneath.
About Veil*.
When money in scarce there seems 1
nothing that runs away with one’s I
money so fast as veils. Their life
is a very short-lived one and often a
misadventure ruins them as soon as
bought. Yet we must wear them if
we want to look smart, and to buy
cheap ones Is morse than useless as
they never look well from the day
they are bought The truest cceneniy
is t» buy fine net by the yard, says the
Woman’s Life. It cuts to better ad
vantage. you get four veils for the
price of onef and It is of a far batter
quality and,’lasts longer than If you
buy veiling p ire and simple.
How the Non
Churchgoer Robs
THE nob-churchgoer shuts himself
off from the weekly study of
God's Word as it is contained In
the Bible. There is word of
God outside the Bible, wo will freely
admit. Yet the most liberal of us
know that the Bible is the one great
literary expression of religious feeling
and the fountain of God's truth. The
man who does not kn^w the Bible sim
ply does not know the greatest
thoughts that have ever been thought;
does not know the best words God
has ever spoken through human lips;
does not know the most Inspiring,
comforting, sustaining truth of the
ages. Now, in every church this
word is read and expounded. It
passes into the lives of thousands of
men, and makes them strong and
brave and pure. Bible men are al
most always strong men. Doctor
Parker was right when he said that
there was something about men
reared on the Bible that differentiated
them from other men. We have ob
served this ourselves. It is a great
pity that any man should impoverish
his mind and soul by not coming once
a week to Join in the common study
and exposition of its transcendental
Again, the non-churchgoer shuts
himself off from those hymns and
prayers that have been the common
propelty of all noble souls since the
psalmist wrote and Christian hymnol
ogy came into being. The Christian
church began with the singing of a
hymn. Our hymns contain the noblest
aspiration the human heart has ex
pressed and enshrine, in words ol
beauty, set to golden music, the solace
and peaco and promise of the Chris
tian faith. Once they were the com
mon property of every man. Now,
alas! so many know them not. But
poor, indeed, that old age w'hich finds
no Christian hymn singing its sweet
measures in its heart.
Shut Off From Inspiration.
And equally deserving of notice
with these other things is this: that
the man who shuts himself off from
common worship with his fellow-men
is depriving himself of that one and
ever necessary inspiration to the en
thusiasm of service and the sacrificial
life. The author of “Ecce Homo"
was very near the truth when he
showed the world that the reason the
disciples loved their fellow-men so
ardently was because they loved
Christ first. It is the man who in the
church confesses his love to God, and
receives the impulse of love from
Christ Jobus, and dedicates himself
with other disciples to the life of
service, and receives before Christ's
altar a commission,” who goes forth
to bless and preach and heal. When
worship ceases even the humanitarian
instinct will pass away. Our hos
pitals, colleges, reform agencies and
settlements got their impulse from the
church. They are being conducted
now by men who, even if not attend
ing church, are living on the church’s
impulse which once reached them.
The impulse which sustains our char
ity and works for human welfare will
wane when men cease worshiping
God. \\ e can see it in our own ac
quaintances who are not churchgoers.
They are good, but they do not say
‘Txird, I will follow thee whitherso
ever thou goest.” They are kindly,
but they do not say “Send me.” The
non-churchgoer shuts himself off from
the one dynamo of the sacrificial life.
We might close this editorial here.
Put we would like to remind those
parents who are not taking their chil
dren to the church service of how
much they are robbing them of future
joy and power and comfort and tradi
tion. We see a great throng of chil
dren growing up in New York who
never are brought or sent to the
church services. We remember our
own childhood, those bright and sun
ny mornings in the little church,
where we learned the great hymns of
the nges, where we heard the great
religious truths never to forget them,
where we came under the spell of
music, where we looked with rapture
at the pnlnted window through which
the light was transmitted Into beauty,
where we sang In the choir (and every
boy and girl should be allowed In the
choir In every church) and learned
the choruses from the oratorios,
where we read the psalms In response
with the pastor, where we professed
Christ as the master of our life—ah,
how we pity the boys and girls who
grow up with none of these traditions
—impoverished in all menorles of the
soul! Parents would do well to con
sider how easily one can rob a child
of these sweetest' recollections age
knows.—The Chrietlan Work on«
