'>ft?n Margaret fell tho harrier of j
u>n-*?'tnjirel?e?is?lon slo- was heating I
i gainst. Hut as ??ft?*n she refrained x i
,'rotn making any complaint cither of. I
>r to Joan. The girls. a Irtish nlr oC,<
?op'ilsth-ation was amusing. She <1 i*I .
lothlng she was not perfectly willing |
in Ik about with her mother .although j
it tunes Margaret knew she feit it un- j
necessary and foolish.
There was nothing about living, about;
life, that frightened Joan. She grasped I
It with both hands, and looked it square- 1
ly in the face. She was what she her-i
soif catted "a game sport."
"I don't see how Hortense stands It."!
Joan said to her mother .referring to a
girt of her own age.
"Stands what?" Margaret inquired.
"Her mother's Interference. Hortense
t'aren't call her soul her own. She hard
ly dares breathe without asking If ahe
may. I'd run awry If you treated me
like that." The long, thin 12-year-old
legs swung back and forth from Joan s
perch on tho edge of the table.
"What does her mother do to which
you object?"
"Everything! It's 'you can't do this'
or 'you must do that' until I should
think Hortense would tell them she
would do as she pleased. Tou never try |
to make me do things. Mumsle?why?" .
"Perhaps because I think It is better i
to let you deride for yourself. Perhaps i
because T had too much of what Hor
tense has In :ny own childhood."
"Poor Mumsle! Hut you know better
than to try to hoes n>e. don't you? I j
wouldn't stand for It. Why, Hortense's;
people treat her as If she hadn't any j
brains or any sense. It's Insulting. You ?
see. times have changed, Mumsle. We j
girls aren't Uko the wishy-washy girls |
who used to be afraid to play games for |
fear the\* would spoil their complexions |
and who thought of nothing but beaux."!
Then after a moment:
"I think. Mum.sic, I shall begin to
smoke." I
"Yes, Joan?" Margaret was shocked,
terribly shocked. She must not sllow
Joan to smoke, but how prevent It?
"A lot of tho girls smoke?most of
them are a little older of course. Put
: I might as well commence now. Of
[course I shall anyway when I am a
| year or two older."
j "The greatest objection to smoking
? that it stum's a girl's" growth." Mar
garet knew how intensely .loan longed
lo l>e tall, fhe used to swing from the
top of a door t'> stretch herself, end go
through nil sorts of gyrations to in
i reuse her height.
"Ileal ly?"
"Yes, dear. Doctors are nil agreed
upon thht point. After one has their
full grow tit It hasn't that effect of
?curse."
"I guess I'll wait then. 1 can't af
ford lo lose nn inch of height for the
pake of a cigarette. I'm sorry though.
1 think It's awfully sporty to smoke*
"A great deal mora sporty not to?
under the circumstances."
"I guess you are right Mumstc." The j
12-year-old legs cease swinging, and j
Margaret heard nothing more ahout j
smoking.
"I wonder what she will want to do j
when she Is, really grown up? Margaret
Bald to herself. "T am afraid I shall
find her rather difficult at times."
On Joan's thirteenth birthday she de
clared to Margaret:
"Mumsle. I'm through!"
"Through what, dear?"
"School"
Aghast Margaret looked at the slim
young thing sitting on the edge of the
bod. She had gone In with her birthday
gifts as soon as she heard Joan stirring.
At Joan's reply to her question she
gasped. Through School at 13!
"I have been thinking 1 would stop
for a long time." Joan went on tn.hee
assured manner." but I hated to bother
you about It. I Just hat? everyone there.
If you will send me wher? there are no
boys. X won't mind going a year or two |
longer. But those Billy things In pants
mak. me tired. They think they know
It all. and Just because they are hoys."
Margaret breathed freely once more,
j "Very well, dear, you may go to Mis? |
Corey's school."
"Bully for you. Mumsle! Von always.',
rotno up to the scratch. I Khali win my j
bet."
'Tour bet?"
"Yes, I bet Hortense 1 would leave!
school and go to Miss Corey's."
Margaret once again reminded herself]
' that Joan might ho difficult at tiniest j
as she grew older.

j but. be-sldes a weak stomar-.h, f hnvoj
| always been afflicted with particular j
sensitiveness of any noise at nighf. Any J
sound brings a i>a! pi ration of the heart
and severe neuralgia, pains in tny head. I
Since I hnvn been near a busy street i
corner the tooting of automobile horns;
make me so nervous that I cannot sloep <
when they cme late at night niv h-art
j Is so bad that all possibility of sleep Is
lost. I am not asking for general ad*
vb*o against nervousness for I try to
combat this ailment with proper ven
tilation. diet. e.\?rcise. self-control, etc..
but would like to know If there is liny
nieehiiniral process f >r diminishing
sound except stuftlng cotton In one*
ears, which I do n?>t find sufficient. Also,
could not police rcguiatlons enforce n
maximum of tooting wlvich ought not 1
to be surpassed'' Surely It Is not righ: '
that care!e?s and inexperienced chauf
feurs should at every street co-ner dls.

p!c who have a right to their sleep?
Answer?I have before written or.
thla subject of noise. 'Slost people con
sider It n Joke. It furnishes a frequent
pre-dlsposltlon to many diseases, some
of them serious. Your letter <s nios to

?<?s true of cities tn the States. Noise
Is universal. At two In the morning,
at ilnwn. Indeed ? von will hear young

In my c'ty there Is a society for the

ON WEARING UNBECOMING COLORS
I ?
Of all the foolish obsessions which
?ke possession of us mortals from
dine t" tlm* It seems to me that few
tir m"i' fitolisii than the obsession
ha, when h rertnin eoltr becomes the
<tyle It thereupon Automatically be
?oines becoming to anyone who wants
lo wear it.
I use the strong word "obsession"
because I think the flxltv. the Irration
ality. of thl.? Idea deserve* it.
Bnt Fashion Had Wared Her Wand, j
I.est >oar I bad ;i dress that was i
hideously unbecoming. I ant sure If .
anyone who knew' nothing about styl
ish colors should se<> me In It. lie or
she would say at once. "Take it ofK
Ton can't wear that shade of brick
rel" (which I can't). Hut when fashion
waved her wand last year oxer brick ?
red and made It henna, she else made :
It becoming to anyone and everyone in i
the mind of those viho let fashion do I
their thinking for them.
I showed this dress to two women |
of more than ordinary intelligence In i
the ordinary affairs of life, and spoke :
of try Intention to have the redlsh trim
ming changed to s more becoming color.
"Oh. don't do that." they said. "why.
that'? the most fashionable shade there
ts. That's henna. That's beautiful.''
"Tiut It doesn't too* well on me," I
said.
"Oh, yes It does," they cried In uni
son. "Why that's henna, the very
smartest color there Is this year.' I
And beyond that barrlcaJe I could |
not gel.
"WlLO-B X.OO??r *Owf"
"Vou'd he crwy to hatra l?

over and over as if that relterfctlM Mt

"Who's looney now?"
That all happened last year. Thlt
year one of the smart colore It going
to be black. And when I think ?# tht
people who can't possibly wear black,
and who will wear il, I could weep for
the plainness they ara going to Ihtlidt
on themselves.
Of course, the pretty young gtrlt
will look as lovely in unrellevad black
es they look In their delicate color*.
It will set off their freshneea and tMtr

LITTLE TALKS ON THRIFT
byS. W. STRAUS, President American Sotiety ft Thrift
'
To the American tourist
who is particularly interested
j in economic developments, a
j visit to Germany at this time
is an amazing revelation. For
I Germany is trying hard to
i rnmc hark, and she knows that
the only way she
can do so is
through thrift.
This is a great
truth that all the
other nations of
'.lie world should
thoroughly com
prehend. especial
lv America, Eng
land and France.
(icrmany is de
termined to regain
a place among the
great industrial
.? 11 <1 commercial
nations of the world. ? Her
political situation is bad, and the
country is flooded with money
of little or no value. Her peo
ple arc carrying heavy bur
dens of taxation, and they real
ize that, to a great extent, the
heart of the world is
against them. Yet. they are
taring the future with grim de
termination and they are giv
ing a magnificent example of
thrift.
Everywhere in Germany one
sees evidences of painstaking |
efficiency and an absence of '
waste. Great new bal diagp
are going up in Berlin, f .in#> nH
fort and the industrial eitiM tfl . I
the Rhine. Workmen vrltk, J *
their own hands are buildinf ,
homes for themselves. TKs I
highways of commerce are j
being; improvcu. i <
German chemist* 11
*nd inventor* art!'
poring over their j i
studies and ex-: ,
periments. Dis-|!
sentions between {I
employers and em- j
ployees are few. ? |
On every hand ' I
there is progress j
and up-building, j,
It is a spectacle . V
which all the
world should see,
because it i# '
a*
such a concrete example v* u.?
potency and practicality of thrift
No one can read the future
with accuracy, but this
much can be said with cer- ? J
tainty: Germany is bi j J
hard for a place of importance j *
among the nations of men. She ?
has made her tragic miatakes ' |
of the past, but on one point
her logic cannot be questioned. ?
j She realizes full well her
only chance of rehabflita*
tion is through intensive, con
sistrnt thrift. W
