She Feels the Loneliness of
Lodging House Life and
Accepts a New Invitation.
The ups and downs of life are very
trance! At nights I used to feel no tired
after the Ions tiny In Hint biff city onice,
nd I used to Bit beside the open window
of the lodging house and watch the
crowds go hurrying by.
I used to weave odd fancied sitting
there nlono above the lamp-lit street, and
to each face that hurried by I would
afllx a tale. Oht little window, you and
1 have often watched the shadows
lengthen, and gray dawn come In! The
looker-on at life sees far below the out
ward surface of the scheme. Perhaps It
Is as well to be Just a mere looker-on,
nd yet, I want, I want so badly Just
to II vet
Oh, little shadow-shapes that come and
Bo. and flicker on the dusty street below,
what Is the moaning and the use of life?
Are the old dreams and wishes merely
fairy tales? Arc we
"No other thnn n mmln row
Of Mimic Shalow-sliupc thnt eom urul iro.
Itouml ultli till- Min-llliimln-d t.nnt-rn held
In Midnight by the Matter or Hie Show."
I wish that I could live without these
restless questionings, these old vague
stirrings that no pain or loneliness can
vcr quench! "The heavy and the weary
weight of all this unintelligible world"
Is here tonight I cannot shnke It off!
Below me on the street t see young,
' happv faces, and I wonder why life Is
so hard for some, so happy for the rest.
Oh Moon of my Desire!
In this quaint lodging house 1 meet the
oddest tvpos of men and women. That
human nature Is the strangest thing, I
,Vf discovered, too. Its twists and turns
o unaccountable. The gruffest, surliest
en may do the kindest, most far-sighted
thlngd, done, too. In a quiet and unob
trusive way; while gushing, would-be
Wills may prove the most uncharitable.
Life's lessons daily now come home tu
me. and I am learning In a new experl-
nce. They nay experience Is tlie hardest
school I fear that I will ierve a long
An old, gray-headed violinist comes
sometimes to this street to play. I hear
ilm tuning up his instrument Just now.
i wonder what the air will be. It Is a
defii oenIng, hot and still.
IollnI.it has started, und I recognize
Void, sweet melody. On Christmas Evo
onco heard choir boys sing the same.
nd angels voices never sounded half so
sneet. The song Is an old Scottish ballad
called "My Atn Countree" It taken me
bank to days that have gone by.
There's a hope la every sorrow
There's a halm In every win.
But tho flrt Jovb of the heart
fume never back HKaln,
There's a IlKht upon th deep
And a track acrop the pea,
Hut the neary ne'er return
To their Aln Countne."
Jo many things haw happened since
I came to this new continent that In the
telling of tho tale I find It difficult to
chronicle events. Ten weeks have passed
now since I landed here, ten weeks Just
piegnant with new happenings,
1 spent my second week as "substitute"
In a big city office, and I found the work
was tiring, and the hours too long. I
could not typewrite properly, tho keys
would get confused, and sometimes lock,
while words would tnlst themsolves Into
etrange hieroglyphics!
If parents only could foretell the future,
or could get ono glimpse of happenings
to come, they would prepare their chil
dren for a definite career, and fit them
for the battlefield of life. Hut older folks
don't always see with younger eyes, and
when the wheel of fortune n unkind
whole families nre left quite unequipped
to face life's battle, nnd must therefore
fight a losing tight
I think that rich and poor alike should
follow some profession, learn some trade.
Then when the winds come nnd the
tempests roar, the house among the
quicksands will not sink, because beneath
It there will be tho bedrock of a definite'
career. Oh! If I only could have learnt
some one thing that T really could do
well, how many strange perplexities
would have been solved long since!
During my second week In Philadelphia,
when I was working In a sadly Inefficient
wav In the big city ottlce, every one was
very kind to me. The falr-halrrd man
he was quite young from offices below,
who came up several times to talk to
me, was an old friend of tho asslstnnt
manager's for whom I worked. Ills In
vtitlon. which tnderd were many, so
often filled me with a strange embarrass
ment' To watch a prize tight In Olympla
with this young man did not allure me
In the very least; In fact, no picture
sketch that he could draw of sporting
Joys could tempt me to the place. I did
not like to disappoint him, but I simply
could not bring myself to go.
The next bright scheme that he evolved
from some strange region In his brain
wai, a one-day excursion to Atlantic City,
tete-a-tete, he said he loved to bo beside
the sea, the sea with me, the beautiful
ea, would I not come and Join him by
the sea? I certainly would not! I knew
that where the mere man la concerned,
the pure ozone of the Atlantic breeze
affects his judgment In tho oddest way.
The balance and the mental equipoise of
this young man did not appear to be his
brightest points in nny case. Hence I
declined the pleasures of the sea.
--although" I thought the young man very
kind, he had a very pleasant, genial look.
In a third scheme for entertaining me,
his friend, the assistant manager, backed
him tip. He told me that this youth was
his best friend, that he meant very well,
and was quite hurt that I refused all
his requests. Would I not go with this
young man out "on a party" it would be
great fun?
I, did not understand Jutt what it
meant to go "out on a party" but, after
long argument and long persuasions, I
finally consented. It proved to be the
oddest, strangest episode!
Is a good plan to pepper a carpet
thickly Just where any heavy piece of
furniture has to rest on It, as this helps

Two Smart Whirls Feature Move
ments of Folk Dances.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 1. Exit the tan
gp, which now Is "old-fashioned," and
enter the "tarantula" and the "pernlclon."
These, letter are to be the two smart
dances of the coming ballroom senson,
according to Miss Helen Wyman, director
of calisthenics and dancing In the local
Young Women's Christian Association.
Anyway, young society women of tho
capital are to be admitted to their mys
teries. The program for the winter season, as
arranged by Miss Wyman. provides for
a more elaborate scries of daticea than
ever before taught to the classes, It is
proposed to feature particularly the "folk
dances," or tho favorite dances of the
nations, replete with "the Spanish stamp,"
the castunet and the Swedish movement
Ono of these, and perhaps tho most
favored by the enthusiasts who have
danced there before, Is the dance known
ns "the ace of diamonds."
"It has nothing to do with cards," ex
plains Miss AVyman, "but Is characterized
by a skipping and clapping of hands that
has always been favorlto to the Swedes
In their popular folk dances.
"Next como (ho Spanish and Italian In

local organization. Spain stands high In
the list. The familiar "Spanish stamp"

Tho superintendent of a charitable In
stitution for the aged poor In n certain"
district says tnat there Is no topic more
pleasing to some old women than tho
discussion of their "better days," when
they wero the fortunate possessors of
"everything heart could wish for," aa
they are apt to express It.
One old lady In the Institution men
tioned never tired of describing the
llnery aha had when she was a brido;
another boasted of having once owned
a "gold-band chlny tea-set" and six
solid sliver teaspoons; -while a third
dwelt at length on the eleganco of a
flowered silk gown and satin parasol
with fringe IS Inches long.
One poor old lady stood this sort of
talk as long as she could. Then she
calmly Interrupted with:
"Well. I never had no chlny tea things,
nor no silk gowns, nor embroidered pet
ticoats, nor openwork stockings, nor
gold ear-rings, nor nothln' o' rnat sort:
but I HAVE had four husbands, an I'd
llko to know whether any of you can
beat that."
"Indeed," the lecturer went on In a
quizzical way, "I believe I am Justified In
asserting that nine women out of ten
practically propose to the men they be
came engaged to. Aa a test, I would
ask all married men In the audience whose
wives virtually popped the question to
them to rise."
There was a aubdued rustle In the audi
torium, and In the tense silence that en
sued could be heard sibilant feminine
whispers In concert, "Just you dare stand

No doubt the tensou why there are

On the subject of Wife's Dull Round of
Household Duties, tho following letters
havo been received:
To the Editor o the Woman's Page, Evening
Madam Having read your nrtlcle pub
lished Monday evening. I quite agree
with yovi that every wlfo should havo
time for relaxation from her household
duties which may become a burden too
heavy to carrv. Men ns a rulo think
women have little to do compared with
their dally toll, but I often wonder If
they ever stop to consider tho countless
number of things a housewife has to do,
and think of. not only the work a house
requires, but the mental work thinking
and scheming what to have tomorrow
to make a satisfying dinner, and to make
homo agreeable nnd comfortable. I havo
been mirrleil 15 years. Tho first ten
years I could think of nothing but home,
household duties, nnrl my children and
husband's comfort. I worked hard to
keep It clean and cheerful and thought
no one could do as I could. The con
sequence was a norvous breakdown. I
persuaded my husband to take a smaller
house, which ho did, relieving me of
many a task. I hustle around In the
morning, never begin a task which I can
not finish by noon. I also manage to
prepare my dinner, then I go out until
about 5 o'clock, return home and serve
the dinner. My friends tell me I look
younger than I did ten years ago, bo I
know from experience It docs not pay to
become a household Mave. My husband
agrees with mo and wo havo many a
pleasant trip for I nm ready to go any
where ho asks me, and have gotten quite
over the habit of saying I cannot go. I
know I am appreciated moro than ever
now. F. M. J.

Modern Husband Selfish
To the Editor of the J7oman'a rage, Evening
Madam I have read your delightful ar
ticle of September 33, with deep Interest.
As an ardent worker in tho Woman's
Cause, I am In tho greatest sympathy
with tho problems and cares of tho wives
and mothers of today. Not until women
have a voice In tho government will tho
problem be satisfactorily solved. In the
marriage state, true happiness can only
come when husband and wife are on
terms of the most perfect equality. Sui'h
women aa "Contented Wife" appears to
bo from tho tone of her letter are a
gieat hindrance In the light fir women's
rights. The modern husband strikes mo
ns a most selfish person, and I believe the
attitude of many wives Is responsible for
this state of things. It Is time that tho
women of America took n proper stand
and asserted themselves moro In tha

Woman's Troubles Ileal
To the Editor of the IVomqn'a Page, Evening
Madam "A-ffpreclatlve Husband" seems
to me to write In a most extraordinary
way In his letter to your paper, of yes
terday's date. I nm a happily married
wife, yet I cannot agree at all with the
Views of "Appreciative Husband." He
refers to his dally problems, and adds
"tho smallest one of which Is more Be
rlous than the largest of hers," that Is,
his wife's. What possible ground has he
for such a statement? A woman's prob
lems may extend further, and go deeper,
than tho average man's, and besides,
women are more highly strung, more sen
sitive. In a word, mora tlnely constructed
temperamentally than men. and therefore
their troubles are deeper and moro real
to them, in proportion. I think that It
"Appreciative Husband" spent a little
more time In really studying his wife's
temperament, he would write In a differ
ent strain. He might hesitate in making
such a statement In the future.

Author of "The New Houeckceping"
The original mop was a "bunch of
thrums, a tuft of conrso yarn fastened
to a handle," but this ancestor of tho
race has a numerous progeny today, with
sisters nnd cousins nnd nunta ns myriad
ns Pinafore's, and tho modern housewife
has any number of species1 to choose from
to help her In her household labors.
First, I want to tnko the stand ngnlnst
tho old-fashioned mop rag, sad relic of
winter underwear. It may seem thrift
to mnny women to two up discarded gar
ments ns cleaning cloths, hut our mod
ern anttnry point of View docs not
tolerate the ragged, frayed, unsightly
"rnga" so oftrn used In the many tynds
ot mop handle?. If the piece ot clothing
has hern old, It is generally true that It
bus lost Its power of absorbing wnter and
Is too thiondbnre to cleanse any surface
sntlsfactorlty. Again, If It Is so old, It
will vsry shortly fray nnd become tagged
and slimy, because It Is Impossible to
wash n ragged fnbrlc thoioughly. So,
while It apparently seems economical to
use up Irregular shaped pieces of out
worn clothing on a mop. It Is, frankly,
not (sanitary, not efficient, and not tlmu
Much better Indeed It Is to use some
of the spcclnlty woven scrub cloths.
Thceo come In various sizes, from 18x18
to 2I2I, nnd In different weights. No
ono who has not experimented can actu
nlly stnto how much wasted effort has
been put upon mops with Irregular, rag
ged cloths, which were not thick enough
to absorb wnter or were not thoroughly
clean. How much better Is n firm, square,
regular! v shaped cloth made of looso
fibres which absorb water and which nre
Arm enough to actually rub nnd clean
whatever they are used upon? For as
tho cord Is to the arrow, so Is the cloth
unto the mop stock! Tho right weight
cloth will do more for easy mopping and
scrubbing than anything else, nnd, as I
said, Ot- chief reason ngnlnst tho usi
of father's nigged flannels Ik that they
arc of too uncertain a quality and weight
to do efllclent mopping.
One of the imut popular members of
the mop family today Is tho so-called
"oil mop" which has como Into general
uc with the Increased vogue of hard
Modern Maidens, Disappointed in
Love, Refuse to Pine Away.
In the rush and bustle of modern life,
when the mind of the present-day damsel
is absorbed with thoughts of tennis and
hockey nnd all sorts of outdoor sports
and amusements, tho old Idea of the
"maiden all forlorn" Is quite a back
Are there such things as broken hearts
nowadays? Tho nnswer Is a very un
certain ono. Yet some old-fashioned souls
still linger with us, and for such a little
advice might prove valuable.
The typical heroine ot a Jane Austen
novel was a fragile, sweet young thing,
but sadly lacking In the lighting spirit
which characterises the breezy, slangy
young woman of the present day. She
.suffered from strange "vapors If her
tavnred admirer showed symptoms of a
declining enthusiasm, and. Instead of
showing tho faithless swain that she
thought herself well rid of such a de
serter, she pined away like a little neg
lected plant nnd generally mode things
vety uncomfortable for everybody con-
CTno modern maiden, where she has a
heart and whero that heart Is suffering
through tho misdeeds or neglect of some
gay youth, realized that the best cure
for lovo Is to find distraction of somo
kind. Men throw oft lovo troubles mora
quickly than women, because they have
real work to turn to.
It Is no good advising the love-stricken
maiden to dust the drawing-room or turn
out the linen cupboard.
It there Is no real, necessary work to
be done, the best thing is to "play."
Tho constant mingling with new people,
new 'faces. Is bound at length to prove
a distraction, and to finally put tho un
happy love affair into Its rightful place
oblivion! ...
The cultivation of a hobby Is an un
failing remedy, too. "Tho expulsive
power of a new nffection" will then
usurp the old, and the busy young wo
man will becomo so genuinely Interested
In her now fancy that the old love dis
appointment will gently slip into the
background, and be finally regarded as
"that ridiculous, foolish affair."
Women In love generally show an un
fortunate lack of that nice sense of TTls
crlmlnatlon and discernment which should
enable them to differentiate between tho
occaston requiring the policy of neglect,
or tho policy of persistent devotion. If
this sense were only Cultivated a little
moro there would be fewer damaged
hearts around, nnd no such person with
us ns "The Maiden All Forlorn!"
& m
wood floors. Originally this was a string
mop of white cotton ynrn called gener
allv a. "yacht mop," but now It has
ei'olvcd Into n mop of chemically treated
yarn, which oils as well aB wipes tho
dust. No woman who has hardwood
floors should be without one or two of
these long-handled mops. They come In
various shnpes, and the main paints to
remember nre that the crown of the
mop must be so made that there Is no
metal piece to knock furniture legs In
using It, nnd, ngaln. thnt It Rhould be
m pimped thnt It will easily go under n
radiator All ot theso mops aro used
with various oil preparations, and when
thev get dirty It Is necessary only to
wash them In scalding hot water, let
them dry, re-treat with oil and uso on
The wall mop Is another Important
member. Iio Is tho glorious feather
duster of the juosent era. He generally
has n vcrv long handle and he Is mnde
of various kinds of soft, woolly or yarn
like flhm In such a nhnpo ai to best fit
the nngles of corner nnd wall. He, of
course should never he touched with any
oil, hut must be kept scrupulously clean
and used exclusively on wall surfaces,
Tho wet mop Is yot another member
of Importance made Just llko tho dry
mop nnd Is Indeed far preferable to the
ordinary mop stick und separate cloth.
The only difficulty In using such a mop
Is In the wringing, but this can be over
como by using ono of the many differ
ent kinds ot mop wringers, somo of
which even hnvo claborato rollers or
other devices .clamped to the Bldo of the
pnll, nnd thus, without tho nld of tho
hand, thoroughly wring the mop.
Tho little sister of tho family Is tho
dish mop. I3ut alas, too many house
keepers do not allow her to stay pure
nnd white, nnd do not tako ns much
care of her as they should. Moat scrupu
lous cleanliness Is needed here, nnd a
nnlly bath In hot water, with n weekly
bath In soda water Is needed to kep
the little dish mop In a necessary state
of health.
The mop family arc some of the house
wife's best helpers. She should know
thtm moro Intimate'- study the pecu
liar traits of each, nnd give all of them
the best care. Frequent shakings, wash
ings, plenty of air and light are what
they require.
