CLOTHES A BUSINESS ASSET
Stf8upporting Woman Who Would Succeed Should Be Well Dressed. Any "woman who has her way to suike in the world, whether in social or business circles, must recognize that dress is one of her chief assets a writer in the Delineator says. The efficiency of a saleswoman, a stenog rapher, a teacher in fact of any worn- .an who works Is judged by her dress ShabbinesB is almost always taken as a sign of ill-success and it is a popu lar if somewhat fallacious theory that real merit and ability always succeed ' Carelessness is quite as blighting to one's prospects as shabbiness. It may not be altogether just or fair, but it is true that wherever you go your so cial position, your income, success or failure, your ability and character are appraised by the clothes you wear. If I were starting in business I don care in what capacity and had only a rery little money to invest, I would put It into clothes clothes that were suitable, attractive and well made. It is what financiers call "a good risk an investment that is almost certain to turn out well. I don t for a moment advocate ex travagance in dress except for women of large means. With them extrava gance is more than excusable it is justifiable. It keeps money in circula "tkra that would otherwise be idle. It gives legitimate employment, which Is the wisest and most beneficent form of charity, to women who need work. But for women in moderate circum stances a parsimonious attitude toward dress is a false and often fatal economy. If you want to succeed in anything, look successful, able, compe tent. .Otherwise you can never inspire confidence in others, and to look suc cessful, prosperous, assured, you must be well dressed. SWORDFISH WEATHER VANE Still Pointing to Wind, as It Long Has Done, on Block Island Barn. "There are more hotels at Block .Island now than when I was there some years ago, and more people, said a man just back, "but I found at least one familiar object there that pleased my eye, that being an old -weather vane. ""On the road running to the south from the island's center of population "to the remarkable clay bluffs that rise to the height of a hundred feet or more along the island's southern shore there is a barn above whose cupola turns a home-made wooden vane fash ioned in the form of a swordfish.' The hardy fishermen of Block Island hunt the swordfish, as well as every other sort of fish that finds a home in or that traverses these waters, and here "the swordfish weather vane seems SHrt only striking but strikingly appro priate. "The vane is about six feet in length, which to be sure would be small for a swordfish, but which is big for a weather vane; and there it was still, the only swordfish vane I ever saw, and a pleasure it was to see it still there and still turning easily and as ever pointing true to the -wind." Better Man of the Two. A pretty, fresh-looking young wom an and a dreamy-eyed man got on a street car. Hardly were they seated when a look of intense despair spread over the man's face. "What's the calamity now?" asked bis companion pleasantly, but with a trace of alarm in her voice. "My cuff links!" he exclaimed "tragically. "One of them is broken and an end is missing. I never can keep my cuff together until we get bome. What shall I do?" with a wild accent on the "shall." The woman laughed with relief and answered cheerfully: "Oh, that's easy. Give" me what's left of your broken sleeve link." He obeyed. She leaned down, quick ly twisted a button from her shoes, booked, it on to the damaged bit of Jewelry and passed it, ready for imme diate use, to the man with a triumph ant "There!" Translated Into English. Every one has heard the story of the Englishman who was told, when asking what was done with all the su perfluous fruit grown in California "We eat what we can and and what we can't we can." The joke was told to another Eng lishman, who received it with a rath er sickly smile, and upon his return bome gave his own version of it. "Queer people, those Americans," he said. "Peculiar sense of humor. They told me as one of their choice jokes that when asked what they did with their fruit that was left over, they answered that 'They ate what they could, and what they couldn't they could."

"Are you alone, mother?" "Yes, my boy; eome In," and Mrs. Ravnold beamed with pride as her stalwart boy entered her sitting room. He went straight to her and sat on the ottoman at her feet, as he had often done when he had come to her with childhood petty troubles. The mother drew his head down on her lap, smoothing his hair with a gentle hand. "What is troubling you. Richard? Can I help you?" "I don't know, mother. I hardly know how to beein to tell you." He paused a moment, then went on. "There Is a eirl. mother a little brown-eyed, brown-haired, soft-voiced girl, and I love her." "Yes, Richard?" "She is of good family; but, oh! so poor! She thinks I am but a poverty stricken mechanic, and loves me be cause of it. I am going to marry her."

I know you will not re gret it." He kissed her tenderly, and as he walked out of the room his mother watched, with tear-dimmed eyes, till he was out of sight, then turned to the task set before her. Her husband sat in his study, the papers scattered on his desk unheeded, his brow drawn into a frown as he gazed into space.

The superintendent was in the habit of dropping in to the different class rooms and demanding a recital of les sons from the pupils. One day her active mind hit upon physiology as the study for examination. But the little girl to whom the first question was put so bewildered the superin tendent and made her lose her pa tience that there were no more ques tions of a similar nature asked. "Tell me," said the superintendent, "what a skeleton is." The little girl thought for a short time. "A skeleton?" she asked. "A skeleton? Why, a skeleton Is a man with his insides out and his utsldes off." to find it the simplest in his stable, 1 wished to drive myself," explained bte wife. So engrossed was he in dilating upon the enormity of his son's foolishness that he did not notice where his wife was driving to until they turned into a pretty country lane. "This road seems familiar," he re marked, then sat up straight as his wife stopped in front of a tiny house set back from the street. "Why, this is the house we lived in when we were first married." He followed her down the lilac-bor dered walk into the house. "Madge, it looks as it did the day we left it. What does it mean? How is it you have the keys?" Do you remember that first check you gave me?" "Yes, to buy jewels with.' William, this was the jewel I bought" With a sudden change of hu mor she laughed merrily. "William, let us stay here for tea and I will cook it myself. You go down and carry up some wood. Here, hang your coat on its old hook. It will seem like old times to see you in your shirt sleeves." ne, laning into ner numor, did as she bade. A few minutes later he came upstairs to find his wife preparing a simple meal, her silken gown shielded by a calico apron. Madge, he called to her eagerl, my old worktable is still down there. Do you remember how pleased we were the day I finished it?" "Yes, indeed I do, Billy," using un consciously the name the dignified Wil liam had long ago replaced. As she set the table in the little kitchen, she watched her husband bus ily building the fire and whistling a song he was wont to sing in the old days. When she placed the dainty, simple meal on the table Mr. Raynold drew up his chair with a sigh of satisfac tion. "I can't remember a meal I have enjoyed as much as this in a great many years not since we left the lit tle house. We were happy those days, Madge. Mor happy than we have bee i since. You look just as you did then, except your hair is gray. I well re member ho- proud I was of my pretty bride and the tiny home my two dol lars a day was supporting. Here, Madge, dear, let me dry those dishes." Towel in hand, he painstakingly dried each dish, and as he set the last cup in the oloiet slipped his arms about his wife and stole a kiss, just as he had done in the first happy days of their married life. "Billy, dear, let our boy taste of the joys we shared in that almost forgot ten past. He loves a girl, who must be worthy of that love., just as you loved me. You would brook no interference and you must not blame him for not wishing to obey your demand. Let our love and happiness In the days we were poor plead for him now." Her voice was trembling with eagerness, her eyes reflecting the great love she bore these two men. For a moment he hesitated, then he smiled and said: "You are right, wife; let us go home and wish our boy Godspeed." ted States.
