There is no time when a variety of

It is safely within the limits of
conservative statement to say that
Moscow tills year faces a crisis in its
commercial life. Conditions in other
towns and in (lie outlying country
have so shaped themselves as to
thrust upon Moscow a choice between
steady and strong growth and immed

that the people in spending money
should spend it in Moscow,

have the desired effect because in
nearly every household it is the wom

who disburse the funds the
men theorize about.

He Asked Her Three
(Adapted from Hans Christian Andersen.)
NCR upon a time," daddy told the children when they begged for a
story, "there was a butterfly that went to look for a bride among
(lie flowers. He looked at them well as they sat so primly on their
stems, just like pretty girls waiting to be asked to marry. But they
were all so beautiful that the butterfly found It very hard to choose. At last
lie flew to tile daisy. You know how every, girl pulls petals off the daisy and
says. 'He loves me—he loves me not.' So the butterfly thought he would find
out his fortune from the daisy too. So he said: 'Sweet Marguerite daisy'—
Marguerite is the French way of saying daisy—'you are the wisest wife of all
flowers. Tell me, shall I get this one or that? To whom shall I fly?'
"But the Marguerite was so cross at being called 'wife' that she would not
answer the butterfly. He asked her three times, but she paid no attention to
him. and at last he flew off. It was early spring, and the crocuses and snow
drops were out. 'They are charming, hut too young,' said the butterfly. Like
most very young men he preferred older girls. So he flew to the anemones, but
they were too bashful for him. The violets were too enthusiastic, the tulips
too fond of snow and the jonquils too common. The apple blossoms were
lovely, but they all fell off soon as the wind blew. It would not be worth
while to be married for only a day, thought the butterfly. Finally he saw a
sweet pea. She was pink and white and dainty, yet would look well in a
kitchen. He was on the point of asking her to marry him when he happened
to see a pea pod hanging beside her. 'What's that?' he cried. 'My sister,' said
she. 'Some day you'll probably look like her!' And away he flew.
"So the spring and the summer passed and the autumn too. The flowers
were still clad in beautiful garments, but youth's fragrance was gone. The
butterfly liked fragrance very much, so he flew to the dahlias and hollyhocks
and wild thyme. Delighted with her, he said: 'She will hardly blossom, but
she is all fragrance. I will take her.'
"But the wild thyme stood stiff and still. 'Friendship only. We are both
old. Let us not make fools of ourselves in our old age,' she said.
"So the butterfly got nobody and was left a bachelor. The fall rain poured,
and winter's snows fell. Finally the butterfly had to crawl into a house to get
warm. After he had spent a long time flying against the window pane he was
caught and stuck upon a needle in a ease of curiosities. 'Now I am sitting
upon a stem, just like a flower,' ho thought. 'It's not very pleasant—almost
like being married, one is tied so fast!' "
