After my interview at that employment
place I walked In Philadelphia's streets
for quite an ace I thought the shops In
Starkit street held lovely things. Tho

me as hnvintr yur'i a fashionable air;

was dressed w.i most severe, draBBed
tlghth bark ovpr each ear. with one great
Jeweld p'n projecting at the side. I
thought thev looked co pretty, yet some
had an artificial air the color In their
cheeks seemed sometimes hard and fKed,
bo different from the glow that cold winds
and sea biuozes brine. How wealthy they
must be to dices like that, I thought, and
almost envied them.
I walked through Chestnut street and
saw the hurrlns crowds go by How
narrow that street seemed to be! Long
line of motorcars crowded the tr.iiilc

I lingered, hoping to hear the organ
plav t length "one chord of music
llko the sound of a great amen" rang
out, and It seemed to give me courago to
lace these noisy sun-scorched streets
again. I loved to hear that organ play.
AN UNnxmCTHD OPPORTUNITY.
After an hour of wandering I saw r
notice In a window "employment Bu

nd rows of g'rls and men cllekt d bu-dl
at different machines. All seemed so
competent, so capable so self-assured I
felt too shy to risk another rebuff such
as the last, so stood Just inside, close to
the door, and a-i tar from the Emplov
ment' desk as possible.. Two ijirls wer
ta!';lng close to me and I could not help
hearing what they taid.
"We nerd a girl in our office uptown
at once," said one. "just to do ail the

Aren't you just dying to apply?"

Stucli controversy and contention circle
around the old, etcrnnl question, Are
wives considered by their hubands? Fiom
the days when Adam delved and Eve first
snun. this nioblcm. like tho poor, Is al-
wns with us. The Irritating attitude of
the rnriy Victorian matron oi a pnsc
decade Is not yet dead unfortunntcly!
In many a modern wife Is seen tho meok
srlf-immolatlon at her husband's shilno
so typical of a .lane Austin heroine.
In these enlightened dns, a wife
should surely have a little leisure for tho
higher things, a breathing space to pause
imiil soul-kllllng loiltlne of tho pots and
The "threc-mcnl problem" seems to ho
a moral one. "I hate tho very sight of
lood," cried a distracted, nervous little
wife, "the cooking nnd picpailng of thico
mrnls a day Just haunts my dietim!
When John comes In at night, he sinks
Into tho ncaiest chair and s:i)., 'C3ce
Maty, I've Just had tl'o hardest, busiest
day! You lucky girl. In this quiet haven
all day long, I envy you! I hope to uood
ncss dinner's ready?"
"I know John thinks I've pased a
glorious afternoon, llng on the sofa with
tho latest novel nnd a bos of cindy.
It's no use telling him how hntd I've
worked; he only smiles. He cannot see
the hundred little' trlllcs. big and small,
that make my working day as haid as
WORD OF APPRECIATION- CHAVIJD.
Another wife now spoke. "In one
sense I do think that the har.lc.st piofes
ston on earth Is that of wife," Bald "he,
"for that role Includes Just every other
one. I mil"! be an excellent cool; to
please m husband's epicurean taste; a
good dressmaker to make mv dlilldien's
clothes nnd mine; n thoroughly qualified
governess to help my children with tht'r
lessons; .i clear-headed business woman,
with tho acumen of a trained account
ant, to keep my household books and
run things economically. And In the
eenlngs after dinner's done, tho last
dish washed, the last child nut to bed,
I must be bright nnd witty, smaitly
dieted, must talk about men's things,
men's Interests. I'd do It all wllllnglf
if I only hau a word of appreciation from
my husband now and then. Hut ho can
not understand why I should feel tired."
i:.ich wife should have a certain time
a day, apart from all her household
duties, for relaxation and for culture's
sake. Most religiously she should adhere
to this scheme.
WIFE TO HAVE PLAY TIME.
A very pretty married woman hai Just de
cided on a mild tevolt. For 20 years, s,ho
has been the best of mothers and of wives,
nnd the verv hardest worker In her home.
A little while ago, the doctor told her that
htr nerves were overstrained through the
"tnree-mcal problem and her too s-eden-tarv
life. Sho must have moio fiesh air
and more amusement. The cure has work
ed so well that now she has decided to
maKo tho new -tato of things a perma
nency. "I Intend to make some time for amuse
ment nnd culture every day now," said sho
In a determined tone, "for three hours
eory afternoon I'm going to 'play.' In
summer It will be tennis and outdoor
sports for me. nnd In tho winter time I
bhall attend matinees and concerts and
lectures, and visit my friends. In all
tho.se i,cars, I think the best part of me
was getting stale along with the 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 mvself a better opportunity
for culture and for growth. I do believe
that he will appreciate mo more, too. I
worked so hard, and et he never eemed
to sen that 1 did a thing' So now I've
thought things out, mado out a llttlo
pleasant scheme to look forunid to every
day, and 1 Intend to rairy It out I think
there are such things, as too unselfish
wle3, don't you?"

The European war has caused more
trouble In Philadelphia hotels than the

a metamorphosis In American hotels nnd

has to icmaln neutral.
Pioprlotors of hotels and cafes here
found It absolutely nccessaty to neutral
ise their menus, nnd one nltnched here
with, with Its neutral Intel pretntlons,

he llnds It such a relief to know thnt
"ennntds rolls" Is simply roast duck,
while hors d'oeuvres are olives.

of diplomacy. The hotel men dlscovoiotl

Even some of tho pronounced English

been changed. The larmoutn oioaicr

ham beer, which nre popular In many
places, are now given ns Saratoga chips
and beer. Dalemnrtln soup is simply
Austrian dishes have also been Ameri
canized. "We had to take such stops for pence,"
said n local hotel man, "because there
were many complaints from our guests of
nil nntloiinlltlcs. And If theie is any
place that should bo peaceful It's a dining-room.
"Many Impatient customers nro roadv
