How's that for brains T The examining board had to give her the place. Bhe waa head and shoulders above her competitors In excellence. There was a fierce dispute, of course, and then one old doctor exclaimed: "The girl won. Ths girl ahould have It!" And that la how In time Dr. Mary Craw ford became house surgeon of Williamsburg hospital, New Tork City. , But before she reached the position she had to serve her term as ambulance sur geon In one of the "toughest" districts of Greater New Tork. Night after night she was aroused from the sleep of absolute exhaustion. In five minutes she waa dressed, and three minutes later she waa in the clattering ambulance that turned cornere at breuknedk apeed; while she clung to the straps for dear life. And where did these calls-at midnight, at 2 and I o'clock In the morning-take hert To saloon fights, to fires, to scenes of murder. Nice work for a well bred, charm ing woman-eh, what? And that Is Just what little Dr. Crawford Is. Don't Imaglno six feet of sturdy womanhood; she Is noth ing of the sort.

She can row a shell as well as any man and play basket ball and baae ball In a highly creditable manner. She Intends to make surgery her pro fesslon In life rather than plain medicine. A Lriioa for Parents. A H-year-old girl disappeared from the home of her wealthy parents and Immedi ately a search was started, on the theory that ahe had been kidnaped. A reward of $6,000 was offered and New York waa thrown Into great excitement Three days later she returned home from Boston, where she had gone of her own volition. She had found employment as a waitress and had become tired of her enterprise when she cut her finger. Homesickness conquered the spirit of Independence. This girl's explanation of tha reason, says tho Washington Post, far er esca pade Is worthy of serious study by par ents. She complains that she waa humlll atei by having a maid sent with her to school, and that she was treated on all ocoaslons as. Incapable of thought and un worthy to be trusted. On the day of her departure ahe was moved to take the step by being minutely Instructed by her mother how to reach hor home from a downtown shop. Bhe felt that It was no longer nec essary to be treated like a Uttle child. Bhe Gowns HIS Is a good year for the rtrl I graduate not merely in the vital I matter of the graduating frock uui an aiuug iu lino vi m girl ish wardrobe. The nrtncAM frncka whtnh dues not at all mean the straight, un broken line frocks once monopolising that name, but takes in all the dainty little one-piece affairs predominant this season are in the main exceedingly girlish In character. There are, to be sure. Innumer able frock models of weird and compli cated construction quite outside the limits of the chic simplicity which should be tha characteristic of the girl's wardrobe, but there are also models galore which seem to have been designed especially for the girl In her late teens, though her elders have adopted them. The linens, pongees and cotton stuffs are' made up Into delightfully youthful one-piece frocks. The fine serges are used for warmer models quite as delightful. The straight, loose, long coats of the popular street costumes are particularly adapted to the slender, undeveloped youthful figure, though the eccentricities which mark some of these coats must be avoided and only the simple models adapted to the grl's use. As for evening frocks but much of what has been said about graduating frocks on the opposite page apply to the girl's even ing frocks, with sdded freedom of coloring and flowered effects. The three little frocks pictured here rep resent three smart and practical types which may be developed in various ma terials, though the original models were excellent In material and coloring. Th. tria- little pongee frock with allghtly blouaed bodice, wide collar and cravat makea up charmingly in light weight serge and In linen. Few well rlrls will be without one of ths practical unllned princess frocks of fine lightweight serge which are popular mis ....m: and either In dark blue or In white such a frock will be found useful for the coaler days of summer and for seaside and mountain wear. A remarkably trig little Francis model In serge which has been much copied both In white and In blue has a bodice with rt,.h nvk finished by a round collar of real Irish lace. The original model was In whit with let buttons down the front of the short bodice, and this bodice was caught down In rounded white soutached tabs over a black patent leather belt which fastened with a big Jet buckle. The skirt, rising a little above the nor mal waist line to meet the black belt, was very simple, with groups of Inset plaits held down by tabs like those of the bodice. A collarless coat was fastened with one big Jet button and was finished around the neck by fine soutaehlng. Princess frocks In black and white shep herd checks have rivalled those of serge for sills' wear, but have been commonld to a degree which la Impossible with the less aggressive dark blue or white serge. Pongee, especially la the heavier and firmer qualities numeroua now. Is an ex cellent choice for either a princess frock ot coat and skirt frock, and in many cases tailors or dressmakers are making up a princess frock, coat end separate skirt en suite, so that the one coat doea duty with the princess frock, or, when longed for freedom of action, and ahe foolishly strfirk off at a tangent, without thought of the agony she waa causing her parents. The girl acted In a silly, selfish manner. It Is true, but she Is not wholly to blame. There Is a large measure of responsibil ity resting upon the elders, who failed to study her temperament, to recognise her need of greater liberty. Many parents make this mistake of treating their chil dren without reference to the personal differences between Indlvlduala. In the same family there will be widely distinct typea, and each child presents a aeparate problem of training and development and discipline for the parents to solve. In the matter of freedom of action especially la there need of the greatest care and the wisest discrimination. liestralnt and close guardianship may be necessary In one case and harmful In another. In the same fam ily. The child who Is closely hedged In by restrictions may, In fact, be really In need chiefly of a little liberty, real or Imagined. But It is never safe to a'low a child to feel the strain of parental sus picion. Perfect frankness between parents and children Is more effective than rules and safeguards In the development of char acter. Cradles for a Royal Baby. Among the gifts which Queen Mother Wll helmlna has received and which ahe appre ciates greatly Is that of the pupils of the orphans' home In The Hague, and which Is extremely unique. It consists of eight beautifully made cradles with toilet bas kets all elaborately trimmed with lace. These are for the' queen to give to eight Dutch women who may have children born on the same day as the royal heir. An odd gift, according to Frauleln de Vrlea, la that of the women of Urk, an Island In the Zuyder Zee. They dressed a doll In the picturesque costume, as strange to the city resident of Holland as to the foreigner. Hood and shield are of rare laoe, the seven skirts of the finest material covered by a little black silk apron. Golden catches on the hood over the ears, golden hooks to keep the silk shawl In place, and a neck lace of coral with a golden clasp complete the doll's outfit. The women of Amsterdam have given the queen of Holland a cradle that Is a triumph of art and skill. It Is made of rosewood, Inlaid with gold. The curtains arc of white velvet and are embroidered with tho em blems of the house of Orange and the coat of arms of Amsterdam. From The Hague has been received a sec ond candle as a tribute of offection and loyalty. It is a veritable Jewel of Industrial art of Louis XVI style and Is elaborately decorated with figures of children and the royal crown. The white stand upon which it rests Is finely carved and Inlaid with gold. The haatnette was made at the royal basket works and is entirely covered with real lace made at the school of lace making at The Hague. The ruffled cjirtalna are also of real lace, bordered with a design of orange blossoms and small oranges. Tha women of the southern provinces have also expressed their love for the royal mother with a gift. It Is a baby carriage overlaid with Ivory. The mountings are heavy with silver. It has a white leather canopy draped with real lace and to the equipment belongs two very fine linen sheets, lace edged, a white satin carriage spread and a silver hot water bottle.

The Psrioi'i Fee, "Won't you come down long enough to marry us?" came a voice from the dark ness when the Rev. James E. Adams, the Methodist Episcopal minister, at Maurice town, N. J., poked his head out of a second-story window soon after midnight. In Built Upon Youthful Lines SUMMER GOWNS. that is too hot or too formal, with a lingerie blouse and skirt. The initial ex pense of such a combination is consider able, but the advantages are many. In white serge or light lined pongee the skirt always soils before the coat, and the separate skirt will save the more ex pensive and less easily cleaned princes wonderfully. A pongee or linen skirt with blouse of net trimmed In the linen or soutached all over is pretty with or without an accom panying coat, and one ot the vermicelli pattern nets dyed to match the linen Is a very good substitute for braldrd net. Sometimes the braided net is brought down to form a front skirt panel, a In the model Illustrated here, but more often the skirt is a simple on entirely of the linen. An attractive bodice for a frock of this type has a foundation of net dyed to match the linen, and on this net are set at Inch Intervals narrow stitcoed straps ot the linen, running vertically from a soutached neck flnlh to the short waist line. The body of the bodice - and the sleeves are made In this way, the straps running horizontally around the aleesee, and the only trimming la the contracted band arovtrtd the neck and narrower soutaehlng at the wrist. A collar and shallow gulmpe are of white. Dutch neck effects ot all answer to a knock nn the front door of tho persona e. "Come around tomorrow. It s too late to marry you tonight." replied the parson. "No. we are In a hurry, and have driven all the way from Millvllle to get you to perform the ceremony," said John 1L Brandrlff, son of Fphralm Brandriff, a Millvllle merchant, who had rnpped at the door. "Walt a minute." snid the dominie. He was sorm dressed, snd performed the ceremony, with his wife and daughter na witnesses. The bride was Miss Nettle Olklns of Millvllle. Beroro the happy couple drove away they handed the Hev. Mr. Adams a pink envolope. which felt through the paper as If It contained a bank note. The mlnlMer says he found Inside a pleoe of henry paper containing 14 cents snd on the paper was written: "This Is all we can spare now. Will see you later."

Middle-aged bachelors, widowers and young unmarried men to the number of more than 100 who have felt the call of aprlngtlme, "when a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love," recently made frantic appeals for wives that Is, the Ideal kind through Rev. D. D. Vaughan at the Halated Street Institu tional church, Chicago. The letters of many of the swains, all de scribing In detail the qualifications of the women whom they desired as helpmeets, were read to an appreciative congregation by the' paator of the church, reporta the Chicago Tribune. Dr. Vaughan preached his rgular Sunday evening sermon on the subject of the "Ideal Wife." His material he obtained from the letters which he read. While the qualifications for . wives-to-be wero varied and amusing In many cases. It was evident most of the men who wrote to the pustor were serious in their re quests. Every man wrote that he did not wish his wife to be a college graduate, nor a club woman, nor a reformer. Neither was it considered essential that sho be pretty or talented. What every man wanted was an "old-fashioned girl." Dr. Vaughan sent out a list of questions to several hundred unmarried men to as certain the prevailing opinion as to what the Ideal wife should be. He said In his sermon, however, that most of the rhen evidently had mistaken him for a matri monial agent." The following were the questions which Inspired the appeals from the unmarried: '. Must she be pretty? Must sho be a good cook and a neat housekeeper? Must she be stylish? . Must she be vivacious or quiet? Must she bo a society or a home girl? Must she be-a' college girl? Must she be talented? Do you prefer the "new" woman or the old-fashioned kind? Must Bhe be a olub woman or a reformer or interested in politics? Do you want a clinging Ivy or a sturdy oak. Out of the 110 men who answered the let ters only three "anted pretty wives. All Insisted that the acceptable girl be a good cook and neat housekeeper. Only two men wanted a stylish wife. Mb re of them wanted her vivacious rather than quiet. All of them insisted on her being a "home girl." The prevailing opinion soemed to be against sodlety women, reformers, or those Interested .in politics. Several men wero partial to "clinging vines," while others though It would be a good Idea If they could get a "sturdy oak" a woman who was amply able to keep them well in hand. Ono of the letters which created some amusement was from a widower In Spo kane, Wash. "I am a widower, 60 years old," he wrote.

Regarding the domestic qualifications ot the women who were wanted as wives many of the writers went outside of ths questions sent them by Dr. Vaughan. One young manhe said he was Just past 21 wrote as folows: "I am not particular about the girl I marry being pretty. I think most pretty girls are conceited and vain.
