feel so old I So munj' sorrows have come
suddenly to me t wonder why? I gaze
down vistas of long years to come and

I want to live, live hard, and think,
and learn, and dot I hate the thought of
pain and poverty! Since mother died,
all the old longings that I thought lon
lnco were crushed, all the old, vague
desires have come to me n?aln a thou
sandfold. Thoce restless stirrings for a
full deep life are here again. O, Moon
of my Desire' Is happiness for me Just
like that pate, cold oib shining beyond
this earthly kingdom here?
"Why are ne humans such strange, rest
less things, with vague resolves that melt
like snow before the heat of selfishness?
Why are lie given s-ouls to ache over
our own sad fallings and our pain? We

After my Interview at that employment
place I walked In Philadelphia's streets
for quite an age. I thousht the shops In
Market street held lovely things, The
Klrls who passed me on the street struck
me as having such a fashionable air;
their clothes seemed cut Jus: in the
height of "style." The way their hair
was dressed was most severe, dragged
tlghtlv back over each ear. with one great
Jeweled pin projecting at tho side. I
thought thev looked so pretty, yet some
had an artificial air the color In their
cheeks seemed sometimes hard and fixed,
so different from the glow that cold winds
and sea breezes bung. How wealthy they
must be to dress like that, I thought, and
almost envied thim.
I walked through Chestnut street and
aw the hurrying crowds go by How
narrow that street seemed to be! Long
lines of motorcars crowded the traffic
In Wanamaker's cool department store
I lingered, hoping to hear the organ
play. t length "one chord of music
like the sound of a great amen" rang
out, and It seemed to give me courage to
face these noisy. sun-BCorched streets
again. I loved to hear that organ play.
AN UNEXPECTED OPPORTUNITY.
After an hour of wandering I saw a.
notice In a window, "Employment Bu
reau." It was a large typewriting office,
nnd rows of girls and men clicked busily
at different machines. All spemed so
competent, eo capable, so self-assured. I
felt too shy to risk another rebuff such
ns the last, so stood Just Inside, close, to
the door, and as far from the 'Employ
went' desk as possible. Two girls were
talking clnso to me and I could not help
hearing what they said.
"Wo need a girl In our office uptown
at once," said one, "Just to do all the
odd Jobs, answer the telephone and do
all the things no one else wants to do.
Aren't you Just dying to apply?"
"Gee not for me'" was fie response. "I
jfuess I have a dandy Job already, thanks.
t Besides, the sound of it ain't good
' o, enough."
ir This waB my chance. I screwed up
' courage, and I spoke.
"Would I be good enough for this par
ticular post of which you speak?" I
queried. "I have had no experience, of
course, but still I want to start In right
The girls turned round, and stared,
"I guess no particular experience Is
needed, Just some common sense," said
the one who had poken first, eyeing me
curiously. "I know we want a girl Im
mediately; go right up now and see the
She handed me an office card, and off
I set. I reached a great high building
that seemed to me to tower right to the
heavens, a real skyscraper The elevator
shot ma like a streak of greased lightning
to the 17th floor. I entered a large office,
and perceived "the boss " He was a wlry
looklny, worried lltle man, and seemed
to preside over r score of stenographers,
all girls. He clucked around Just like a
nervous hen beside the village pond at
home, who found her brood were duck
lings and could swim away from her.
"Miss Smith, Miss Smith, stop talking
over there and go ahead with your
work!" he cried.
"Miss Brown, you've placed your chew
ing gum right on these bills of lading
there and It has stuck' I hate to pee
young ladles chew the way you all do
He turned to me. "Are you the new
girl? Why. I guess you'll do. Salary Is J5
a week to start begin right now. There
goes the telephone, please answer It." He
hurried off again.

THE DREADFUL PHONE
I hastened to that dr"odru! 'nstrument.
The nearest girls all stopped their work
and watched. I did not know what I
should do, for I had nevi r touched a
telephone before But that W'd bell kept
tinging on, so I lifted tv 'nstrument
bodily oft the table and placed the mouth
piece to my ear! Of course, I heard no
sound, except the wild rtnglnn- of that
dreadful bell, which kept up one contin
"For heaven's sake answer the phone
right, can't you, girl'" shouted "the
boss" in nervous wrath "That darned
wild ringing makes my head go round "
The earpiece now fell to the floor with
a loud crash, but luckily by doing so
It stopped the mad ringing1 of the bell. I
lost my head, picked up that earpiece
from the floor and shouted down It,
"Who Is there?" A shout of laughter
from the girls stopped further foolish
"Come here, young lady," said "the
boss," "I see you've never touched a tel

What a strange question In that busi
ness place, I thought. "I've taught In
Sunday school, If that Is what you
mean," said I "The clergyman used to
say I could teach the children well "
Another shout of laughter greeted this
I saw that I had blundered once again
It was too much, I hurried from the

Domestic Fabric Utilized by
Modistes in Absence of
Foreign Material Redin
gote High in Favor.
Imported dress fabrics fall very far
short of the usual annual quantity this
season, and consequently our own do
mestic fabrics are exploited by the mod
istes and used to develop some of the
handsomest models shown.
Th popularity of broadtail would seem
to b ensured by tho fact that It is a
favorite with shops of a very high grade,
and It ranks with ohtffon velvet and plush
in its suitability for afternoon costumes.

The afternoon gown of the illustration

The coat belongs to the redlngote class
It Is a name that covers a multitude of
designs, and ther are many variations to
the one theme.

The coat Is slightly opened In front,
with lapels that are faced with satin

A very pretty touch Is given to the

sort of thing that the French have al
ways done to perfection.
On of the minor details, perhaps, but
something that absolutely transforms
tho appearance of a garment and raises
It from the ordinary homespun kind of
thing to the aristocracy of clothes.
We are beginning to value these things
and to see how much is gained by atten
tion to the fine particulars.

The European war has caused more
troublo In Philadelphia hotels than tho
average person rcallne1?. In addition to
nffectlng American ships, it has worked
a motamorphosls In American hotels nnd
lestaurants, for nl' Umtod States food
has to remain neutral,
Proprietors of hotels and cafes here
found it absolutely necessary to neutral
ize their muiius, nnd one nttached here
with, with Its neutral Interpretations,
shows that the bonlfaces do not Intend
to take chances. Tho patron who desires
to know what he's getting In ndvance will
brcntho a sigh of relief for the change.
He will know, for Instance, when he
orders "croustndes do pommes do tcrre,"
that It's simply creamed potatoes, nnd
that barsch a la Russo Is plain, ordinary
coup, with a dish around It. Then, too,
ho llnds It such a rellof to know thnt
"ennnrds rolls" Is simply roast duck,
while hors d'ocuvres aro olives.
Tho translation, however, was not made
simply for convenience; it was a matter
of diplomacy. The hotel men discovered
that a patriotic German guest did not
care to be greeted with a Frcnchy menu
littered with "qucs" and "ones," not to
mention other complications.
GERMAN FOOD DISGUISED.
Nor did an ardent Frenchman care to
see such announcements as frankfurters
nnd sauerkraut or hamburger steak and
Therefore, the frankfurter dish has
been dlsgulred to sausage and shredded
cabbage, while Hverwurst Is announced
as American pudding.
Neucliatel cheese li concealed, while
smearcase and cauerbclg Is simply la
beled as bread and cottngo cheese. Pig
knuckles and kraut have been succeeded
by short pork and cabbage.
ENGLISH DISHES AMERICANIZED.
Even some of the pronounced English
dishes In tho popular restaurants have
been changed. Tho Yarmouth bloater
and Yorkshire pudding are now given as
Nova Scotia herring and American plum
duff. English potato chips and Birming
ham beer, which ate popular In many
places, arc now given as Saratoga chip?
and beer. Dalemartln soup is simply
Austrian dishes have also been Ameri
canized. "Wo had to take such steps for peace,"
said a local hotel man, "because there
were many complaints from our guests of
all nationalities. And If there Is any
place that should be peaceful It's a dining-room.
"Many Impatient customers are ready
to fight anyhow If they aro not served
with lightning speed, and when their pa
triotism Is jarred by seeing dlshos an
nounced In the language of the enemy. It
is too much. Then, too, they can order
more quickly, and It saves time all
nround. We Intend to keep neutral food
until the big fight has bean settled."
If you wish to make starch and let It
get cold before Btarchlng the clothes, try
thli method: After the starch Is made,
and still hot, sprinkle cold water all
over the top as though you were sprink

top, and can use every particle of It
Rice should be washed In several wat

CLEANING A OAS OVEN
To clean a gas oven dissolve some
rough potash In a little cold water, and
paint the InBlde of the oven all over with
It. using a very old brush, as the potash
ruins it. Leave this on over night, and
the next morning wash It off with warm
wnter. All the grease and burnt bits will
come away, leaving the oven perfectly
SCRATCHES ON FURNITURE
Furniture la so apt to become scratched
and such a state of affairs looks some
what unsightly. A remedy Is suggested.
Dissolve some beeswax In turpentine,
making It as thick as treacle, and apply
to the scratched surface. Afterwards rub
very briskly with a dry flannel.
Much controversy and contention circle
around the old, eternal question, Aro
wives considered by their hUBbands? From
the dnya when Adam delved and Evo first
spun, this problem, like tho poor, Is al
ways with lis. Tho Irritating attitude of
tho early Victorian matron of a past
decade Is not yet dead unfortunately!
In many a modern wife Is seen the meek
sclf-lmmolntlon nt her husband's shrine
so typical of a Jane Austin heroine.
In these enlightened days, a wife
should surely have a little leisure for tho
higher things, a breathing space to pause
amid soul-killing toutlno of tho potH and
The "thrce-mcal problem" seems to bo
a moral one. "I hato tho ery sight of
food," cried a distracted, nervous little
wife, "tho cooking and preparing of three
meals a day Just haunts my dreams!
When John comes In at night, he sinks
Into tho nearest chair nnd says, 'Geo,
Mary, I've Just had tho hardest, busiest
day! You lucky girl. In this quiet haven
all day long, I envy you I I hope to good
ness dinner's ready?'
"I know John thinks I've passed a
glorious afternoon, lying on tho sofa with
the latest novel and a box of candy.
It's no uso telling him how hard t'vt

WORD OF APPRECIATION CRAVED.
Another wife now spoke. "In ono
sense I do think that tho hardest profes
sion on earth Is that of wife," said she,
"for that role Includes Just every other
one. I must bo an excellent cook to
please my husband's epicurean tnste; a
good dressmaker to make my children's
clothes and mine; a thoroughly qualified
governess to help my children with their
lessons; a clear-headed business woman,
with the acumen of a trained account
ant, to keep my household books nnd
run things economically. And In tho
evenings nfter dinner's done, tho last
dish woshod, the last child put to bed,
I must bo bright and witty, smartly
dressed, must talk about men's things,
men's Interests. I'd do it all wlllinglj
if I only had a word of appreciation from
my husbund now and then. But he can
not understand why I should feci tired."
Each wife should havo a certain time
a day, apart from all her household
duties, for relaxation nnd for culture's
sake. Most religiously she should adhere
to this scheme.
WIFE TO HAVE PLAY TTME.
A very pretty married woman Tias just de
cided on a mild revolt. For 20 years, she
has been tho best of mothers and of wlvos,
and the very hardest worker In her home.
A little while ago, the dootor told her that
her nerves were overstrained through the
"throe-meal problem" and her too seden
tary life. She must have more fresh air
and more amusement. The cure has work
ed so well that now she has doclded to
mako the new state of things a perma
nency. "I Intend to make some time for amuse
ment nnd culture every day now," said she
In a determined tone, "for three hours
every afternoon I'm going to "play.' In
summer It will be tennis nnd outdoor
sports for me, and in tho winter tlmo I
shall attend mntincca and concerts and
lectures, and visit my friends. In all
those years, I think tho best part of me
was getting stale nlong with tho eternal
round of pots and pans! My husband
never saw It, but I did! I don't Intend to
neglect him now, of course, but I do In
tend to give myself a better opportunity
for culture and for growth. I do believe
that he will appreciate mo more, too. I
worked so hard, and yet he never seemed
to see that I did a thing! So now I've
thought things out. mado out a little
pleasant scheme to look forward to every
day, and I Intond to carry It out. I think
there are such things as too unselfish
wives, don't you?"

WASHING FINE LACE
Fine lace or muslin is dreadfully apt
to tear In the process of washing, par
ticularly small articles, such as collars
and cuffs. Before washing fine lace or
muslin collars and cuffs baste them on
to a piece of heavier muslin, nnd this
will prevent tearing nnd stretching in
the process of washing and laundering.
