HAPPY DESPITE THEIR POVERTY.
Resident! . of Sunny Naples Never to Repine. Seem It Is estimated that a quarter of a allllon people- in Naples live from hand to mouth, and there are hundreds of children who subsist out of the gar bage boxes, and who sleep In churches nd on doorsteps. The taxes in Italy to provide war ships and to keep the nation on a war j tooting with the other powers are j really stupendous. There is a tax on I everythinK, says the Delineator grain j In the field, fruit on the vine, old b'jt-1 ties. Fuel and foodstuffs are v?ry dear only labor Is cheap. For the very poor, meat Is a luxury unheard of and even macaroni Is too dear to be In dulged in often. There are any num ber of perambulating street kitchens, wnere various kinds of soup, chi:ps) and fruits are sold In portions costing one cent. ' And yet these people seem very happy. Hands of musicians are always playing in the streets; the guitar and the mandolin are to be heard everywhere on the boats, In the hotels and the stranger i lulled to sleep by a soft serenade under his balcony. The story teller thrives in Xaples, as there are so many idlers there, lie collects a little crowd around him and proceeds in the most dramatic way, gesticulating wildly and working his face into the most excruciating ex pressions, to relate stories of ad venture or other events, much to the edification of his hearers, who, to Show their appreciation, are often be trayed into giving a sou which rnis'it have been better spent for bread or polenta.

Ad- Titles have their value in the soutft. "Here, boy!" said the drummer as he handed a dollar bill to the bellboy at the hotel in Atlanta, "take a dime out Of this for bringing up that ice water." "Yes, cap'n," answered the boy as he saluted. "And, by the way, boy," continued the drummer, "if you will go down and get me more letter paper you may keep a quarter out of that dollar." "Right away, majah; right away! I'll shuah bring you that ah sta sh'nery," replied the boy, as he bowed low. "And, while I think of it, boy," re marked the knight of the grip,' "if you can bring out my trousers and have them pressed and back here inside of an hour you can keep a half dollar of that dollar." "Ah suttinly cap do dat ah same, colonel 'deed ah kin!" quickly replied the youth as he turned to go toward the door. "Wait a minute now, boy," Mr. Samples said as he walked over to his trunk, "if you can take out this suit and have it pressed and back here in time for me to go to the Bijou to night I'll let you keep every cent of that dollar." "General," said the boy, his eyes bulging out of their sockets, "I'll do dat shuah, general, or, give you all dat money back." N. Y. Times. Fewer Women Than Men Color Blind. "Where one In thirty women is slightly color blind one in five men is so." The physician continued his experi ments with the testing machine. "Yo.u," he said, "can't tell green from blue and are therefore defective, sir. But you are not absolutely color blind. Absolutely color blind persons are very, very rare. I l.ave met but one. He couldn't tell red from yellow or yellow from blue. "Why are menls eyes less reliable than women's as regards colors? Some say it is the tobacco smoke that dulls and weakens them. I have noticed that non-smokers have a somewhat sharper vision." Look Under Foot. The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is "look under foot." You are always nearer the di vine and the true sources of power than you think. The lure of the dis tant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are. Do not despise your own place and hour. Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world. John Burroughs in the Atlan tic. Authoress Who Hated Water.

Can, Be Made In Reefer pr Open Style Easily Put Together and Do Not Get Out of Order Quickly. Coat for Girl from ight to Ten Years of Age. This is a useful coat for spring wear if made in some light cloth or fine serge; it Is unlined, the ser.ms being bound with sarsenet rib bon, and the fronts faced with ma terial over French canvas. The right front is arranged in a wide plait, fast ened and ornamented with buttons. There Is a second plait made each side that is continued over the shoulders to the hem at back; all the plaits are j stitcned the entlre length. The coat j fastens lllte UP t0 the throat- and ' flnlsned bv a turn-down collar of dou- bIe material stitched at the edge, the , cuffs are of the same. Materials required 2 yards 48 inches wide, and 12 buttons. Reefer Coat for Girl from Seven to Nine Years of Age. A reefer ccat of serge is always a favorite with moth ers for children's general wear; it is easily made, and will not get out of order quickly. Our model is three quarter length; the fronts are faced with serge, but the rest .;t the coat is lined with sateen. The large square collar Is of double serge, edged with two rows of fine braid. Brass buttons are uspd for fastening and ornament ing. Materia ' required 1 1. yards serge 40 inches wide, two yard ; sateen, and ten buttons. The Narrow Hall. . To improve the appearance of a very narrow hall place large mirrors on both sides. This gives a very good effect. A large mirror, one the length of the wall, if ph:cd opposite the landing of a half-curved staircase, will add wonderfully to the appearance ot the narrow hall and make a wide one more handsome. Avoid striped paper in the narrow hall. Use a plain paper and also plain carpets without figures, or a geometrical design in very small broken lines. Terra cotta is a good hall' color, also a good grade of olive green can be used. A cream paper, toned to oak, is hand some in a new house, though a color, scheme Is usually needed. A light pa per is preferable in a narrow, un lighted hall. Green paper fades very easily and red soon loses its original color. Striking White Cloth Costume. A white cloth gown that has been worn recently at Nice has a tightly sheathing skirt that is trimmed from bust to feet in front with loops of stitched white cloth and white cloth olives. It has a high belt of cloth, to which behind is attached a knee-long coat tail trimmed with pattes and but tons down each side, and which ia wider at the hem than at the top. The sleeve is puckered like a mousque taire and trimmed with pattes from shoulder to wrist, a frill of lawn here, and a smart lawn cravat with frills about the ears complete Mie guimpe. Over this she wears a stole-shaped garment of unlined white cotton crochet lace heavily bordered with crochet flowers in high relief and tipped on the corners with long elab orate crochet tassels. Vogue. New Brooch Pendants. There are many new pendants which may be used as brooches or even hairpins. They are made with a golden loop at the top that fits over the chain, but the brooch pin and hairpin both screw Into a tiny hole in the back of the middle of the design. Some cameos, being such heavy or naments, are arranged bo that for pendants they are very large, but when used as brooches the cameo may be taken out of the frame and fixed so that it may be pinned on to the dress. Of course, the cameo would not be used as a decoration for the coiffure, for Buch pins are usually of diamonds or some other glittering stone. ' New Blouses Vary. There is one item in her wardrobe that no woman need to, worry about this year, and that is her blouses, or her shirt waists, as she is apt to call them. No matter what her age or her figure, there is such a diversity of Btyles and designs that she need have no difficulty in getting what she wants. If she wishes ' to ade breadth to her shoulders, this broadness is produced by plaits extending over the shoulders, and then again by a scarf-like drapery to arranged that it widens the shoul der Una. While, n the other hand, If she has a fondness for long, droop ing shoulders, she can Had many de signs that will carry out this effect v . ... - - i ' I WHAT TI1EY LEARNED From the first days of their ac- quaintance Mrs. Hartnett had had to contend with Hartnett s jealousy. A person is born Jealous just as he Is born with blue eyes or c liking - for chocolates. Hartnett had fuK meas ure .of that evil trait. ; nefore they were married it .; had been different. At first it had been a joke, then a certain pleasure to Helena to find how she could sway his moods. Hartnett was haudsome and popular and sought after, and it was rather complimentary than otherwise to have him glower and Billk if she smiled on anyone c!s or talked longer to an other man th.in himself. There was a certain excite- ment in seeing him sink ' Into wrath and then briuging him back to his . normal state merely by turning her atten- tion to him. lt gave her a ot power which , wniiln hnup been sweet to any girl, no matter i. ..... sensible or well-meaning1. It ; thrilled her to rev lize that he cared about her so much and there- fore was unaMe tn keen n. wpII- baTanced point of view. To be sure, after l-iey were engaged she laughed at frankly and n'm told him that he was foolish. He ac knowledged the fact, out seemed unable to banish his spells of jeal ousy. She often re membered these little scenes and wondered rather dully how she ever had been able to smile over them for even after they had "Can t Help It." I been married several years Hartnett ! had not broken himself of the habit, j Not that he made scenes, but the at I niosphere of rebellion, of protest, of indignation with which he surrounded her on occasion was depressing to say the least. It was not that he resented the presence of any particular person, but that he resented any withdrawal of her attention from himself even for a few brief moments. "He is merely a sulky little boy," Mrs. Hartnett frequently told herself. "I must remember that and try not to mind." But she did mind. At last indigna tion grew uppermost in her feelings. That she should be conscious of giving her every thought and all her affection to him and yet not succeed in satisfy ing him roused her resentment. Fi nally she discovered that she did not care very much whether Hartnett was indulging in a fit of jealousy or not. Then the inevitable happened she awoke to the realization that she did not care for Hartnett. His state of mind made absolutely no difference to hfr. That was why when his firm wanted to send him abroad fc;- a cou ple of years he went alone. They had drifted too far apart even to consider going together. There was a nmtral forbearance which prevented any words, but each knew. As the day waned which witnessed Jlartnett's departurefrom Chicago Helena Hartnett sighed in relief. That is, she thought it was relief. The pros pect of unbroken weeks and months ahead of her in which she would he free to live and breathe and think without the hampering fear of precipi tating trouble, was welcome. No man who really cared for hiB wife could make her miserable In the way Hartnett had made her. She did not pretend to herself to be happy since it was all over and she might never see him again, but at least she was free from that awful, ever-present cloud of jealous espionage. She told, 'herself that as time went on she should recover the bright and cheerful frame of mind which had always been hers in the old days. There must be happiness for her somewhere. Kew interests filled her USe, but she was restless. She could consider Hart nett in a calm, impersonal way which assured her that an affection for him had vanished long ago. and that she never wanted to, see him again or to go back to the bid troublous days which had meant a constant fear of rousing his jealous temper. The relief from that was worth all the blankness of the present. ' ; When the two years were up and Hartnett came back, of course, she rushed into his arms without a word and he held her speechless, his face white and tense. ; "I I've learned," he began,-, bro kenly. ' , , ':;"," "Don't!" Helena Hartnett choked. "It doesn't make any difference whether you have or not and I don't believe you have or ever will but" "I've learned not to be a fool, Hele na" said Hartnett ' Being a woman', she believed that he believed It, though she knew a leopard cannot change his spots. She, too, had leart.d that the fact that they cared for each other outweighed everything else. Chicago Daily News. I t MORE NEWS FROM THE NEW j , - ENGLAND STATES. , !
