civilized, intelligent Americans.

a pigeon in the street. The get you. It is a sacred bird in Inpia and there
was a ritot immdlatel. The police stepped in but that was not the end.
sohe net day there was a great religious strike and all shops. stores and
stock exchanges had to close their doors.
In Egypt at native from the country districts came to town on his
camel. A young American wos.an-a winter tourist-was walking past
when the country Egyptian carefully Indlaned down from hmischievous Englisgh position
and spat in her sace. Asked why, he said she was a dog of a Christian and
was walking the street unveiled.
Defeated Germany roars about paying a fifty three billion dollar
ndemnexity for the destruction she wrought in other land s and it is onld
three years since her kaiser told the Berlin parliamens.t that Gmany
would demand a hundred billions from the allies if she won. And this
with no destruction from her own sountry districts came to town on hl.
Last year when we were paying 25 to 30 cents a pound for sugar,
the suar plantation Egyptianborers n Harefully l were drawing 2from his6 per cent bonus
on their earnings.
Russian workmen helped the Bolshevini conquer their country and

JTUST PABSING THOUGHTS.
Times certainly have changed and the boys have changed with them. 1
Twenty years ago a boy was willing to spend a year sometimes thrund e, learn
ng a trade. Do you see them dowere drawing that now? 276ot much. A lad strikes
you today, for a Job, and if you suggest that he work for a week or a
month for "earnperience" he'l give you the ha ha. He must have wages
from tue moment he doffs his cap, and half the time he don't even do
tht, but loare nots around the store or shop with his hat on the back of his
Wead and a pipe between his teeth. He can get $1.50 a day for just doing
ordinary work, so why waste time learning a trade that will take perhaps
two or three years.
There Is not a business man in Algiers today that isn't yearning for
one of the old-fashioned boys aho will treat his elders with politeness and
take an interest in his work beyond waiting for the clock to mark up
It's Satuday afternoon otf and double-pay for every minute overtime.
He doesn't want to learn the business; he has no ambition to own it some
day. He makes fun of the dull town and hikes to the city at every oppor
He can't see the dear little girl next door who helps mother, but
rushes to the city side to chase a "skirt."
The best girls oh this old earth are right here all about him; girls
that are growing up to make true and noble women; but he chases the
"chickrens" of the city streets.
"There is nothing to keep him here." so the poor little tool wastes
his time, his money, and his strength, trying to be a tin-horn sport, a
"regular twelve o'clock feller," in Canal street.
To greet your neighbors with a clear eye. and to owe no man any
thing; to build a home for the girl you went to school with, and sit with
your feet under your own table, occasionally adding a leaf for the new
member of the family who sits in a high-chair and puts bread and milk
into his nose and eyes, is something worth while
Stick to mother and the girls who smile at you, and know you, and
let the city "skirts" that walk the streets, walk alone. There's nothing
in chasingf the "chickrens."

Skirts of Plain Clothes
A MONG the great number of pla IS
ed skirts made of plaid and
striped material, an occasional plain
skirt and an even more occasional
model without plaits, will be sure to
seise the attention. And, although the
rogue is overwhelmingly for plaits
and for plaids, there are some hand
some models that are not acquainted
with either of these. Without apolo
gies they present themselves for com
parison among their numerous plait

that they belong to the aristocracy of
The skirt at the left is Innocent of
plaits and is made of taupe colored
wool jersey in a fine quality. It
could hardly be simpler, being straight
and gathered in at the waist line. It
has a deep bem headed with a flat
fold. Starting at this fold and ex
tending almost to the waist line, large
almost flat buttons covered with mole
skin are set at the end of pimulated
buttonholes. At the right side there
is a fascinating pocket of mole skin.
In this skirt the belt and hem are
wider than the average and it reveals
