SOMETHING TO I
THINK ABOUT I By F. A Walker WUAT CHILDREN READ PEOPLE would not worry so much about what they call the "modern child,” It they only stopped to think that futhers and mothers, un cles and aunts, of every generation had their doubts as to the new genera tion. In fact, Adam and F.ve were. In all probability, the only proud parents In All history who never said. “Children did not do such things when we were young." The very latest discovery that has been made about the Utile hoys "and girls of America la that their taste In reading Is quite different from that of their elders at the same age. It appears that they are lluding rlher dull some of tlie things that appealed to the youngsters of former days, and are demanding mote excite ment than Is good for them. • • • It is well, In thinking about such a ■object, always to remember that older people have a weakness for consider ing any such change in taste as for the worse. That Is the compliment that matur ity pays to Itself. The great trouble Is that we, don't remember what we really cared for when we were small. Many of the things that we were ■Opposed to enjoy we didn’t really like until we grew up. Others that were forced on us for our good were spoiled tor us forever. Children have no sense of subtlety, or Irony. This Is natural. They read “Alice In Wonderland,” or “Gulliver’s Travels,” or "The Ara bian Nights" for the straight story, not for any secondary meaning that Is beyond them. A clever American woman suggests that the children, especially in a big family, should be encouraged to write stories of wild adventure for each other. This Is not so Impossible or far fetched as It seems. A good example came to light re cently In the case of the children of Theodore Roosevelt. That many-sided man was a child among his sons and daughters until the very last. His letters to them, full of action as they are, and Illustrated by him- HiiimiiiiimiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitg I THE GIRL ON THE JOB | £ How to Succeed—How to Get E Sj Ahead—How to Make Good | By JESSIE ROBERTS | siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiliiliiiiiiiiiiiinin NEVER A BETTER TIME Til EKE never was a better time than ludujr for the girl or wom an who wants to do well In business to make a success. The world needs constructive work. It doesn’t care who does it, ptovlded the work Is good. Women are flicked for Jobs that not long ago would certain ly have gone to men. In Washington, for Instance, a girl nas been made manager of the lunch room in the Treasury building. This restaurant serves lunches to 1,000 government employees every day. The business detail of running such a place Is great, and only a trained woman could un dertake It. But Miss Dorothy Chap man is trained, having been graduat ed In home economics at Cornell uni versity, one of a large class. And these trained women will tlnd the Held ready for them. There are other ways for women who have taken special training in do mestic science to make money. One such woman serves box lunches to office workers In one of the big city office buildings. These lunches are put up at different prices, three grades, each containing a balanced ra tion, excellent food, well-prepared and daintily served In Its white box. There is certainly an opportunity to use this Idea at railwoy stations. The thing Is to be the first In the field at the chosen center. Honest value and sound methods are what are needed —and training I Train ing Is by no means a college career or work In a business school, though these are fine things to have. Train ing can be self-acquired If you really want It. (Copyright) O THE CHEERFUL CHERUBI I love to ke outdoors in FLU It tkrills me wken I tke klue wind Wows To keen tke trees tJI wkisperinq _ .

But youth runs out to play And finds In storms a thing that warms Its pulses all the way— It is the contest so Intense With Winter's angry elements. The weak perspire beside the dre And shiver with the cold; The sturdy go to meet the snow With hearts Increasing bold. With hearts made stronger by the gale. Whatever arrows may assail. The timid groan, the timid moan, When troubles cloud the sky; The brave go out and do not doubt. Unfriendly fate defy. And dnd each contest bravely met Makes each contestant braver yet. When thunders roll before your gi>al. What will your answer he? Will you go forth to lace the north. Or from the norther flee? Does Winter drive you to your tire.

THERE must be something wrung with the people who do not enjoy the luscious muskmelon and the rosy-mented watermelon, yet you find men who even dislike lemon pie, so it Is hard to suit all tastes; however, “there is no loss without some gain,” for there wouldn't be enough of such good things to satisfy all appetites If everybody wanted the same food at the same time.

ERNESTINE. Ernestine has an origin of lofty dignity. She is one of the "Eagle" names. Like many of the fern ! Inine mimes connected with mythol ogy, the eagle occupied a position of great respect and even adoration among the undents, and his name, with various suffixes and prefixes fur nished many of tile cognomens then in vogue. In Scotland the word for eagle was "erne" and the name was found in all countries where there were mountains, the homeland of the king of birds. Arnridnr, or Arncldur, was the first of the eagle ladles. She was said to be the daughter of Ashlorn, of the Hebrides, who was sold to un Ice lander named Katell Thymr. This lady had the good fortune to find a quantity of silver sufficient for her ransom beneath the roots of a tree, but she decided to remain the wife of Thymr and goes down in history us one of the famous women of Iceland. The next step in the evolution of Ernestine was Armhoru, ami later An nora. who was the wife of Bernard de St. Valeyr. Her name was carried In to the family of Bruose by King John's victim, Maude de Si. Valery, who called one of her daughters Annum. The masculine Ernesto, which pre ceded Ernestine directly, appeared first in Lombardy In the year 752, through Markgraif of Austria Ernst spread all over Oernmny after the Ref ormation, and it was Clermany which finally formed the feminine Ernestine. Though still In great vogue there, It has of late years been contracted to Stine, or Tine, or sometimes Ernu. Bohemia calls her by elaborate Ar nosllnku, hut England ami America took her over as Ernestine, and pre serves her as such. The moonstone is Ernestine's lulls manic gem. It is said to bring hoi good fortune and good health and h particularly lucky for lovers who, old legend insists, may read the future In Its depths. Sunday is her lucky da? ; and 5 her lucky number.
