Faults of Wo m c n The Girl Who Is Always Late—Familiarity In Families Of all the nuisances the girl who is always late is the worst. She certainly has no pride and no sensitiveness. The woman who has self respect is never late twice. Once is a sufficient lesson. She is conscious that she has kept every one waiting for diuner, for instance. The soup is cold, her hostess is put out, and all the others who were tired and hungry look at her reproach fully. She feels she would like to climb a post or crawl into a hole, and in fu ture she allows plenty of time for pos sible delay and accident in keeping her engagement. But the ever tardy woman Is an en tirely different proposition. She is as cool as a cucumber about it, and her skin is so thick that no amount of in nuendo will pierce her armor of selfish ness. She always reaches the scene of ac tion from twenty to thirty minutes be hind time, wearing a sweet smile and gurgling an "Oh, I'm so sorry!" that atones for everything in her eyes. She swears it is the last time she ever will be late, and she commits the same offense the very next time! Now and then the friends of the tar dy woman rebel and play a trick on her. This Is what happened to an ac quaintance of mine: She was Invited to the theater and was asked to meet the rest of the party In the lobby. They waited, and they waited, and they waited. Finally mademoiselle turned up when the first act was al most over. Nothing was said, and the enraged victims filed in to hear what was left of the play. To the culprit's surprise, she was invited again by the same people the following week. This time she was only five minutes late; but, lo and behold, they had all gone In, leaving no ticket for her, and with the sound of applause and the distant orchestra in her ears she had nothing to do but turn about and go home. "Familiarity in Families." I heard a very original lecture the other day. It was given by a woman, and the title was "Familiarity In Fam ilies." The speaker went on to say that the gdod old proverb "Familiarity breeds "OH, I'M SO SOBKT!" contempt" could be applied to families just as much as It could to strangers. If the respect that was due strangers were paid members of the same fam ily, she concluded, there would be few er quarrels, fewer misunderstandings, and the atmosphere of such a home would be much more pleasant both to Its members and to the visitor. Then In the case of a woman who married Into the family the lecturer spoke feel ingly of the way her "ln-laws" took advantage of her and began running In at all hours to borrow things or make use of her in any way they could. A little less familiarity would certainly give the newcomer a much better opinion of her husband's people and an opportunity of liking them for their own sakes instead of tolerating them for the sake of her husband. There certainly is need of such a dis sertation. I know of one bride whose husband's sister tried to borrow mon ey from her before she had worn her wedding ring six months. And how many families are there where a knock on a closed door Is considered superfluous and where consequently there is no more privacy than in the public square? Mile. Melancholia. "The woman whose conversation is always melancholy is bad enough, but 6he who writes depressing letters Is the human limit," said a friend of mine. "We have one such female Schopenhauer in our family. When we receive a cheerful note we mark a red cross en the calendar and re joice, but the calendar is not marked very often. First we get her presenti ment that something Is going to hap pen; then It almost happens; then there Is a third stage sometimes—when it does happen. So we get the benefit of them all anyway. MAUD ROBINSON. WOMAN AND FASHION Suitable For All Flam res. Just now it must be granted that thc wash waist holds first place in popular ity. In shape the model here shown leaves nothing to be desired for thin girls or fat girls, and Its style has none of the earmarks of the shop made. SHIRT WAIST. which otherwise good in fabric and make yet always lack that originality and Individuality of style to woman's attire. All figures can wear a waist that is full over the bust, and to secure this fullness plaits are laid upon the shoulder. The simulated box plait, which is finished by a tab across the front, is both unique and pretty In Its construction. If one desires a dressy touch such an effect is given by the use of a silk tie, as illustrated. The above is the new shirt waist leg o' mutton and may be finished at the low er edge by straps, buttons or in any preferred manner. Concerning Ribbons. Picot edged ribbons are coming into use again, and their employment is marked by many fanciful conceits. In the narrower widths they are plaited into somewhat stiff quillings and these are made to stand up to edge cuffs, re vers, tucks, folds and other trimming devices. Flounces, too, are often edged with them, and about as often as not the picot edged ribbon is shirred on as a foundation to some of the sheer blond laces that are used so lavishly to trim the summer frocks. Spread of the Matching? Fad. The matching fad has been extended to gloves. The latest glove Is lined at the top with colored kid in all shades. This gauntlet is supposed to be turned back over the wrist. Veils match, as a matter of course. It takes a very pret ty woman to look well under a mauve or a green gauze, but veils must match hats. A few white lace veils are seen and many lace edged net and gauze veils. About the only part of the cos tume that does not have to match are the shoes. Elbow Sleeves. The elbow sleeve gains daily In popu larity, but It is not very large in out line, says the Washington Star. Nar row and high stands the cuff, and from the elbow to the wrist it is usual to supply this with a tightly fitting un dersleeve of lace or of lawn and lace, the latter being the more favored fash lon. For Schoolgirls. Mohair is one of the popular ma terials and was selected to develop the accompanying design on account of its good wear and desirability. Dust, rain and wear have small effect on this NXAT SCHOOL SUIT, fabric, so it is especially suitable for a school suit or one that is expected to give a great amount of service. Blue in a cadet or navy shade, gray, brown or red are all good colors to select. A circular flounce trims the skirt, and the box Eton Jacket fits trimly over the shoulders, fastening with frogs or buttons, as one prefers. A blouse of Bilk to match would be a pretty addi tion to this costume. The material re quired for medium size is four and a quarter yards forty-four inches wide. FACTS IN FEW LINES Forty men and three women to every 1,000 persons are color blind. Two or three meteors fall somewhere on earth every twenty-four hours. The common h ise sparrow flics at the rate of seventy-two miles au hour. There are I.SOO churches in Moscow. They are the wealthiest churches in the world. In Holland persons under eighteen are prohibited from entering a public house unless accompanied by an adult. In 1840 to? planting in India did not exist, yet hot year it produced 00 per cent of the total consumption in Ber lin. Of the total income of the United Kingdom, which is about £1.800.000.- --000 per annum, about one-half is en joyed by one-tenth of the population. In a recent lecture in London it was remarked as curious that, though the Tibetans had not realized the princi ple of the wheel or arch, they thor oughly understand that of the canti lever and used it in their bridges. Feeding the pigeons is a favorite pas time, of the students on the Harvard campus. The birds are quite tame, and it is not an uncommon sight to see some young student with birds perched on his bead and shoulders, feeding them with peanuts. Hiram Cochran, a California pioneer, wanting to make sure of a good fu neral, willed his estate, consisting of some town lots and other property, to an undertaker to whom he had made known his funeral wishes and who had promised to carry them out A remarkable record of thrift comes from Morrlsville, Vt., where a young man has purchased a farm from the savings of five years' labor in the tan neries. At no time did he receive over $10.65 a week and much of the time less, yet he laid by $1,200 clear besides supporting his family. "Sleeping In the open air can only be practical with safety from arrest by wealthy persons or those who can show that they have plenty of means and are doing it for experiment, and then only so long as no obstruction is caused." said the magistrate of a Lon don police court the other day. A Japanese recently applied for leave to attend the meetings of the San Francisco Building Trades council. He said he wanted to listen to its delib erations and also wanted to ascertain how to proceed in order that his coun trymen might be admitted to unions affiliated with the council. His request was refused. An Austrian meteorologist. J. N. Nowak. who forecasts the weather by means of a plant called "abus precato rius," discovered by him in Mexico many years ago, will erect his tirst weather stations in Vienna and Lon don. Nowak maintains that his fore casts are obtainable from three to eight days ahead. For the first time within living mem ory, says the London Mail, a child has been born in the curfew tower of Windsor castle. She is the daughter of Keeper Wellbeiove. The tower was constructed by Henry 111. in the thir teenth century. Instruments of tor ture still remain there, but now the grim old prison is a nursery. in a list or unclaimed letters pub lished by the New York postoffice a few days ago were missives addressed to Harry Thaw, the young Pittsburger whose marriage caused a sensation re cently; Rider Haggard, the English novelist; Marconi, the wireless tele graph man, and Craig Wadsworth, sec retary of the American embassy In London. Scotch fishermen nave introduced fishing boats driven by motors. Ex periments have demonstrated the great advantages of such boats over sailing craft in calm weather or when the wind Is unfavorable. The Scotch ashing fleet comprises fully 10,000 boats working at line and net fishing, in addition to a hundred or more steam trawlers. In her latest novel "Rita" drew a veiled portrait of the Countess of War wick. At the New Vagabonds' din oer In London the other night the two were brought face to face. Some ex pected Lady Warwick to cut "Rita," but she did nothing of the sort. On the contrary, her ladyship was very gracious. "Rita" is Mrs. Desmond Humphreys. Dowie has a rival or imitator in Ha waii in the Rev. J. M. Ezera, for a number of years pastor of the native Congregational church at Ewa and considered, next to the Rev. S. L. Desha, the most eloquent and Influ ential native pastor In the islands. Ezera Is now the leader of a new cult or sect, the members of which look upon him as a reincarnation of Elijah. Mme. Patti (Baroness Cederstrom) has received from President Loubet the ribbou of the Legion of Honor in recognition of ncr charitable work in Paris. In signing the decree conferring the decoration President Loubet is said to have uttered a remark so undiplo matic as to make every other French man blush. "I do this," he Is reported to have said, "with as much pleasure as I experienced long ago, when I had no gray hairs and when I heard Mme. Adelina Patti sing In 'Lucia* and In 'La Somnambula.'" An American who has ample oppor tunity to observe King Leopold of Bel glum describes him as "a man of ex traordinary fine physique, an accom plished linguist widely read and trav eled and holding advanced liberal views In all matters pertaining to statecraft and social science. He had the prescience to see In the Kongo sec tion of Africa an opportunity to found a colony for the surplus population of the small state over which he rules, Belgium being the most densely popu lated of European countries." PAGE ELEVEN HELPING THE SICK POOR. I* Is Ob* of the Greatest Charities Undertaken In a Urge City. The reason so many poor people die Is without doubt owing to the wretched quality of the nourishment they re ceive. The doctor may prescribe light and strengthening diet, but what the patient gets in uiue cases out of ten la a bit of stale meat from the delicates sen store or a meager supply of sour or impure milk. To combat this evil Is the work of the diet kitchen. It does Its greatest good at this time of the year, and so I want to tell you about it in order that you may form a branch In your own town if you are charitably Inclined. The diet kitchen is exactly what its name implies—a kitchen that supplies PURE MILK. absolutely free of charge Invalids' food —pure milk, eggs, rice (well cooked, ev ery grain tirni and dry), custard, blanc mange and light broths suitable for sick people. "The kitchen" Is held in the basement of some bouse which Is lent or hired for the purpose, and the matron in charge distributes Its products from 8 to half past 10 every morning. A ticket is necessary from the hau.se surgeon or visiting physician of a dispensary. "Pure milk" money boxes were placed in all the drug stores in one town by the members of a diet kitchen, and the pennies collected went toward buying many a quart during the summer. The farm people all around were asked to contribute, and many people who could not afford to give money were of much aid in providing the raw material. In addition to the yearly fees of the mem bers, two fairs were given in this same enterprising town, and much money was raised in this way. Five kitchens in a large city assisted in one season 311.542 persons, maiuJy old people and children. Tbey dis pensed 308,090 pints of milk alone and 293,088 portions of rice. In addition, some of the kitcliens had an annex where comfortable garments, blankets, sheets and hot water bags for the sick were provided. The results were in every case loudly praised both by the doctors and by the members of the board of health in each slum district. HELEN CLIFTON. LIBRARY DECORATIONS. French Windows Are In Great De mand For Country Houci. Perhaps more attention is now given to the library than to any other room in the modern house. Far from being the gloomy place It was formerly, It is now filled with cheerful tints and sun shine. The popularity of the French window doubtless has much to do with this. The illustration shows a remarkably effective scene setting from a recent play. The walls of this library are hung with red and green tapestries, al- BCEKB FBOM A RECENT PLAY. though the new tapestry paper would do almost as well and cost far less. A large French window draped with silk curtains leads to the lawn or garden. There is a Venetian fireplace with a large hood of green copper. The fur niture is of carved oak, upholstered la tapestry that contains the color scheme of the walls. In the evening the room is lighted by lamps with red shades, which cart a soft rosy glow over everything. B. DE LA BAUME.
