DEPEW ALMOST FORGOT VOTE
Now York's Senior Senator, However,
Did Not Ask for Help In
Chauncey SI. Depew, New York's,
senior United States senator, whoso
health recently has been a matter of
concern to his friends, almost for
got to vote nt the recent election.
When he found his way into the
polling place, 984 Sixth avenue, sev
eral of those in the place vied with
ono another in showing Depew the
way to a booth.
He was in the booth less than a
minute. When ho emerged he stood
a moment, ns if irresolute, then
started for the door. Witlf his bal
lot clutched in his hand, he walked
past the clerk stationed at tho ballot
box. The clerk spoko, but the sena-.
tor, who had his eye fixed on the
door, apparently did not hear. Ho
kept straight on.
A chorufl was raised, and -Depew
halted and looked confused. He gave
a start, turned around, then his face
broke into a smile.
"Ah 1 1 see," he said, retracing his
After putting his vote in the box
the senator got out of the place with
out further misadventure.
In spite of his momentary lapso,
it is thought by his friends the sena
tor voted as he intended. Ho did
not ask for assistance in marking his
LAZINESS ROOT OF EVILS
All's Well That Ends Well Is The
Most Costly of Mottos In the
"All's well that ends well" is the
most costly of mottos, declares the
author of ".Neighbors and Friends,"
who add that in her daily rounds
the district nurse becomes convinced
that laziness, mental and bodily, is
at the lKittoin of most of the evils of
Mothers repeatedly argue when re
monstrated with for allowing girls
in their Icons to spend their time in
idleness, "I ran do the work my
self,' and when the time comes for it,
they'll do the same." They do not
recognize how much easier life would
be for their children if they "did not
allow habits of laziness and selfish
ness to take deep root.
In the days when sowing formed
a larger part of every woman's edu
cation and occupation than it does at
present, a mother was reproached
for allowing her daughter to spend
so much time over embroider)'. In
defending hcivelf, she said : "I have
had her taught sewing, and whether
she makes shirts or tea-cozies mat
tors very little. "What matters is the
luibit of industry. Provided she has
that, she will always turn to any
form of work that may be neces
sary." . It seems almost impossible for un
educated mothers to grasp the fact
that although their children's assist
ance in the housework may bo of lit
tle value, they must nevertheless ex
act it, and that the important point
is the habit of industry, not the in
trinsic worth of childish efforts.
Even in the humblest forms of work
it muy truly lie said: "Ease is' (ho
lovely result of forgotten toil."
SLIPPERS OF FUR, NOT GLASS
Cinderella's Footgear Transformed by
the Mistake of Perrault Who
Wrote Out the Fairy Tale.
When Perrault in the seventeenth
century was writing his fairy tales
to amuse the courtiers of France, he
had recourse to tho old French I
chronicles-- Then he read that Cin
derella, or whatever her name was
in those days, went to the ball, in
slippers of "vair," tho royal fur of
that time miniver, as it is now
known. Perrault, misreading the
text, decked out his heroine in slip
pers of verre (glass), a very different
thing. The real Cinderella probably
went to the dance in thoso pointed,
cnVvirig, fur-hordored-shoes of medi-,
eval days. But, thaDks to Perrault,

Ho wasted' huge quantities of paper.
Whenever ho took up anything that
was frail or finely worked ho was

HAT WEARING AND DRAUGHTS.
Draughts in parliament are cred
ited with partial responsibility for
members' custom of wearing their
hats, which some, however, have even
regarded as inherited from the old
open air meets. But privilege and
tradition are factors, also.. When 14
years ( ago it was proposed at the
London county council to start hat
wearing because of the draughts at
Spring Gardens, the council decided
not to "ape the manners of parlia
ment." Lord Onslow nobly declined
to make a party question of "a nat
ural infirmity like a bald head." For
merly iear of draughts led to the
wearing of hata even at dinner,
though it was good manners not to
put on your hat until your host did.
Pepys records catching a bad cold
"by flinging off my hat at dinner,
sitting with tho wind in ray neck."
