That, I grant you, comes tin der the head of real calamities, However, whelher the elder sister Is plain or beautiful, If she remains too long upon the parent Mom she l.s oblig ed to contend at last with one enemy ' .which women of every age dread, and 1 that Is the . woman of more youth. .

Vetunte her own hard won supremacy, i This, of course, takes Its flf.Jt form In an appeal to mother, because moth er understands. Father doesn't. ITe, poor, fond oul, often finds himself wishing that "the children" would not marry at all. or, nt least, for a very long time, because It Is such a sweet picture to see the young faces grouped around the table and to hear the fresh young voices make music In the house. Po father would do nothing to adjust a state of things which he never un derstood anyway. ! Hut mother! fotler 'tnows. Tiecause, i as likely as not she had to fto through j with the jsame experience when she was a plrl. She knows that each one of her girls must marry or else work for her J living at some trade. She doesn't stop to think that marriage Is often the' hardest trade a woman ran work at, and frequently with the least pay. ! Po mother Interferes and "has a talk"j with the younger girls. Rho points out ' to them that until the eldest sister has "had her chance' 'they, the younger : ones, must keep out of siirht of the -prey '; ielng hunted lest they' Interfere with ; sister's "chances." Then dresses already short are mad. shorter, to carry out the Idea, of more vouthfulncs than Is natural; hair Is forbidden to be ."done up" find every- ; thing Is done to keep the field clear. You'd better submit, you little girls,! when this Is being done, for If, you don't accept, amicably you'll be In dan- j per of being packed off to hoarding- I school where you can't Interfere with the game being played In every family! In this broad land of ours-the same of, catching a husband .-o that, our women , won't have to "work." 1 Wn odd thing, life. For two seacniis the chaperon in London society of thn hlgiical class found hor occupation gone. Itoy-and-girl dances, with the IiusIosm for sole duenna, worn the llrsl step to her dis missal, iiiul young womanhood soon I'ou hi', llselt' alinosl completely eman cipated. It. was regarded us unite, dowdy to ha accompanied III the u.sual liiHimer of past years by a married friend, who was supposed In have one lit lu.r chai'Rn during a dance or at a pl.O'i f'-uys the Queen. Some mothers were doubtful hk to the propriety of this stain of things. Others look very kindly to It. After all, the lot of the chaperon Is not "ros es, roaei all the way." While youth and beamy chase the hours with Hying feet, midibo age In not always well amused, Tho'smiiely of oilier chaperons Is not Invariably found to be stimulating. I'.oredom is Imminent, In the absence of some specially Interesllng topic. An exposition of .sleep may even add Its discomfort to the stato of things. Small wonder that some among the discarded boro their dismissal with more than ( e.'ianlmlty. Put the season just past has called them Into requisition again. Society gave the n"v p'an a fair trial and then decided to reject It. The chaperon Is r" Instated. Perhaps she was n little to,, conscientious In the pant In the per furinniico of her duties. Certain It Is that she now takes a much lighter view of them. She has b"en laught her lesson. Her former Idea thai the girl In her charge should return t;i her ! after every, or nearly every dance, has ! been corroded. No longer does she need to take up her position In some j corner easily accessible to partner and readily discernible by the chaperoned, j fty the new order of things her mere i presence In the bouse Is all that Is re quired. To It she nc-id not even ac- ; company her charge or dnrges, though thl.s remains fairly usual, and It Is still ; imperative that she takes them to their homes when the dance In done. A conversation held not long since between two ladles throws some light upon the up-to-date girl's hb-a.s o the I subject. "1 hope Myra gave you no , I trouble at the ball," said Myra' moth- .

That a worn-out lace or chiffon frock is bad form for knockabout morning wear, luscnrded party fin ery can be often utilized for fancy work. That, a hat loaded with frathers Is unsuitable for a short-tailored suit. It also gtves "she always dances every dance", a remark that seemed tn Justify the girl. Hut this was from an apparently In dulgent mother's point of view. Fn wllllngly, as though It had been fore- j I'd from the lady, came the addition: ! "I hope she did not keep yon up jo,i late'.'"

Hut why has she been reinstated? Tt whs found Hint the other plan was unsatisfactory. All concerned have found il so. The hn-iess, first, per ceived that her responsibility became heavy. The mothers of girls hulled discovered that the disadvantages of the sllunllon at. times became acute. The girls I iicmselves acknowledged thai ever-ready scandal found a freer tongue when no chaperon was present to offer a shield auainsl, cnlumy.
