Mr HIS llttlo sormon was dollvored
S at my hairdresser's. Two girls
wero chattering In tin chairs
tmcic or mo. i could see tholr races
In tho mirror. Ono girl was alert in
manner and hor voice had a certain
ring of coufldenco. Tho othor girl
spoko lazily and 'somewhat complaiu
ingly. It seemed that girl No. 1 was hav
ing hor hair troatod, and In ordor to
savo it from falling out a rather sticky
olntmont was used, a 111 Not 2 was
also losing hor hair, but rofusord to
havo tho sticky ointment rubbed In.
"It makes nly hair look hideous,"
she said. "I don't soo how you can
stand it."
Hor frlond turned to hor quickly.
"Some day you'll envy mo and think
thut It was an unkind fato that made
you bald; but it won't ho fato at all;
you will simply ho, reaping tho result
of your obstinacy and of your dislike
of tho unpleasant. It's all of a piece,"
she pursued, "with tho way you
used to scold mo for staying In and
practicing on tho piano while you
wero out having a good time. You
said that llfo was short and that wo
could enjoy it only once. And now
you envy mo bccauBo I mnko Biich an
easy living with my concert work and
you nro titlll dopondent upon tho
bounty of others."
It was a sharp llttlo Iecturo, but'
thoro was much truth In it. Wo nro
so apt to envy othor peoplo. Wo call
them lucky, when-, as a mattor of
fact, thero is back of their success
n force, a solf-saorUlce, that has made

with nets that shall help In tho car
rying out of tholr ambition. They
lot nothing stand in tho way, and
thus we hear of boys who havo been
rall-spllttors and canal boys reach
ing tho highest olilco within tho gift
of tho peoplo.
It would seem to mo that a ques
t on.thnt pack girl might ask at thU
tlmo of tho yoar's nwakoulng Is;
"What can I do In tho months to
como to mnko mysolf of more account
to my employer? What can I do that
J did not do last yoar?" Or, If flhqtis
in business for horself sho would
question: "How can I Incronso my
Incomo?" Kach year should show an
advnuce over tho past roco'd. Husl
nees mon understand this, and, by
advertising or by soma aggressive
plnns, thoy push forward. Women aro
moro contont to stagnate. Thoy 'hnve

thoy aro fairly comfortable. There
