"CLEANINGS Ti_/ THE IMPULSIVE GIRL. When a girl goes into business she has to learn many things contrary to the nature of her girlhood. And one thing she has to master is impulsive ness. Business can't be. run on im pulse. It is natural for a girl to be im pulsive, especially a young girl. But she "will find, if she wants to be suc cessful in business, she must learn to control her impulsiveness. She can't act on the spur of the moment. She cannot speak on the spur of the mo ment. If she does she is liable to come to grief. The girl who is impulsive throws up her job for a whim. She is tired of it or she thinks she would like to do something else, and off she goes chasing a rainbow. Or she decides to do a certain thing, and then impul sively changes her mind for no rea son whatever, but because the im pulse of the moment carries her off in some unexpected direction. Such a girl never gets anywhere in business. She will not succeed in anything she undertakes. To arrive, one must forge steadily ahead at some definite object. And this the im pulsive girl never does. She goes first in one direction, then in another. But she never keeps going one way long. The girl who finds she is given to this impulsiveness should not yield to it. She is the one who should de terminedly stick to it. Impulsive action can never be as wise as that which is carefully planned. A girl's good sense will tell her this, and when she is inclined to overthrow some thoughtful decision and do something entirely contrary 6n the impulse of the moment, she should call ner good sense to her aid and firmly resist the desire to act rashly. Impulse means chaos. The girl who is always acting on impulse is always in a chaotic state. It affects every thing with which she has to do. She buys her clothes impulsively, and so nothing is harmonious. Her hats are in discord with her dresses. Her gloves are never right. Her neckwear is in appropriate. She changes her plans for her vacation a dozen times, and winds up usually with some trip or boarding place not at all to her liking. Nothing goes right with the girl who is governed by impulse. Order is heaven's first law, and to have OUT affairs run smoothly we must get yi line with law. The impulsive girl breaks all laws, and suffers the conse quences. If a girl is given to impulsiveness she will find life will run more smoothly if she will try to conquer this habit. Let her look ahead and deliberately plan her course, and then calling to her aid her will, stick reso lutely to her plans. MALICIOUS GOSSIP. SCtECT READING, rOR THE FAMILY. A tall, proud-looking woman was be ing pilloried by the officers for some alleged comment on their efficiency, says the Sacred Heart Review. The president, gavel in hand, summed up the offender's iniquities and called for a vote on her expulsion. The vote was taken, and the accused declared expelled. She made one or two efforts to speak, but was given no opportunity. With a stately measured step she walked to the door turning on the threshold she swept the assembly with a look of contempt and repressed fury, and then gathering her silken train, as if to free it from the contamination of a carpet trodden by the enemy's feet, she passed from view. The white set face was never forgotten by the new member, who, sick at heart, slipped, away from the place as if it were un holy. Her feeling of disgust and re pulsion was intensified by hearing within the year that the expelled mem ber had died, and that after her death the whole miserable story was un ravelled to the starting point—the malicious gossip of a jealous officer. The vindication came too late. The purposeless gossip is bad enough, but there is a worse type, the gossip who has a mission, who "thinks it her duty" to do harm. Such a gos sip as this happened into a church— of all places to ply her art!—and a pure sweet voice in the choir held her attention. She thought she recognized it. A former schoolmate had just such a voice. But if it were the school mate, she should not be singing in a choir. After the innocent school-life had come another when the young singer had taken the wrong road but she turned back, and leaving the home of her girlhood she went to a big city to begin life anew. She worked hard for an honest living, and attended church regularly. Her voice brought her an invitation to join the choir. She was as happy as anyone could be under the circumstances—until the gossip found her out Repulsed by the virtuous, her efforts to lead a good life set at naught by worldly judg ment, the poor girl turned her steps once jnore into the downward path that was so easy to follow. And she never again turned back! There is a mistaken idea that only women gossip. The fact is there are men who can outclass any woman in length of tongue and willingness to use it. Any political campaign proves this assertion. Some party leaders run the whole range from gossip to vituperation and slander, and if they do not succeed in establishing any thing else they certainly do establish a reputation for being character- 1 r~Z_£ WAYSIDE^, killers. In less arduous times many men spend their leisure in trival dis cussion of social follies or of the fail ings of their fellow-members of vari ous organizations. Debates on sub jects worth while are rare in stores and offices and clubrooms. Even cur rent issues that ought to be of inter est are neglected, while intellect dwindles on a diet of gossip. Manly men, womanly women, and young people who are welcome in the homes of their friends, have a better use of their time and their tongues than employing both in destroying their neighbor's reputation. THE CHILDREN'S HOUR. TWO LITTLE GIRLS. Dorothy's cousin Katharine had come to. Gay Harbor for a year. She was going to .begin school tomorrow, and the two were talking over things. "There's one girl you won't like," said Dorothy, "and that's Jude Clark. She bosses everything—and every body." "The teacher?" queried Katharine. "No," Dorothy laughed "but she'd like to." "I don't think she'll boss me," re turned Katherine, slowly. "O, she will! You're so quiet she'll be sure to order you round the first thing, just as she does Hattie Sieps. You see, she knows more than any body else she's' head of every class, and so she lords it over us—O, you'll see! Dick calls her a regular terror.'" "Isn't she pleasant?" "Pleasant enough, O, Yes! She'd be real nice if she didn't want to boss everybody." When Katherine entered the school room with her cousin she found her self face to face with a black-eyed girl somewhat taller than she. "Hullo!" said the girl. "What's your name?" The newcomer looked straight into the snapping eyes and answered: "Katharine Ingersoll Northcote Gil bert." "O, me!" cried the other. "What a name! Doesn't it tire you to carry it round?" "It hasn't so far," Katharine replied, smiling. "Well, it ought to—Katharine Inger sol Northcote Gilbert! What do they call you, Kitty?" "No, Katharine." "I'm going to call you Kitty Katha rine is too long." The stranger smiled. "You might just put my initials together If you want something short." "K-I-N-G—why—ee! I guess, after all, you'd better be Katharine. I'm Judith myself. Now, remember," turn ing to the other, "you're not to call me anything else after this!" Then, "What do you know?" returning to Katharine. "I know the multiplication table," "Say it!" Katherine did, from "two times one" to "twelve times twelve," glibly, smoothly, and without break or blun der. "O, me!" muttered Judith Clark, while her eyes sparkled her praise. "What else do you know?" "I know tiie prepositions," replied Katharine. "Say them!" commanded Judith. Katherine began quietly: "Aboard, about, above, according to," going straight forward without hesitation until she had named the entire sixty five. "O, me! O, my!" exclaimed Judith, under her breath. "I couldn't do it to save my life." Then aloud, "Do you know any poetry?" "Yes," answered Katherine. "Repeat some!" ordered Judith. In a clear voice Katherine recited Mr. Whittier's beautiful poem of "Barbara Frietchie," and it went along with a dash that quite astonished Dor othy. Her cousin had seemed so quiet, and here she was eclipsing Judith in everything. The speaking ended just as the bell struck for order. "Thank you," Judith said softly, and then went soberly to her seat. She studied hard that morning. For the first time in weeks the teacher did not have to reprimand her for some mischievous prank. Hitherto she had kept at the head of her classes with little effort, and much of her time had been spent in play. Now she saw that she must study if she would "keep up" with the new scholar, and she went straight to work. "You have done beautifully today," the teacher told her at night "You ought to thank K-I-N-G for it," returned Judith, her eyes a-twin kle?" "Thank whom?" Judith couldn't help laughing to see the teacher's puzzled face. "That is the only short for Katha rine Ingersoll Northcote Gilbert," she exclaimed. Miss "Garton laughed, too, saying: "I hope you and Katharine will be friends." "We are now," declared Judith. They were, and the new scholar's gentle ways were so attractive that Judith began to borrow the gentleness for herself, and "I'm glad she came," was her secret acknowledgment. Truth fears nothing but conceal ment.
