FOR THE WOMAN AND THE HOME-PRIZES OFFERED FOR ORIGINAL SUGGESTIQ

The Banc of Enjoyment
It 1 an fextrnordlnnry thing how de
pendent wo aro on the opinion of our
neighbors! It Is morn tlinn cxtraotdi
nary; It Is pathetic. Tho approval or the
censuro of our neighbors Is a. vcrltnbla
buRbflar that hampers our pleasures and
. doubles our difficulties.
It is a mystery to tno why the opinion
of outsiders should matter so dreadfully
much. Wo don't care particularly for
these outsiders In fact, wo may oven
positively dislike them but nil the same
We nro subservient to that wretched old
saying that 1ms wrecked many delight
ful little plans and many bright schemes
-namely, "What Wilt People 8ay7"
The Social Climber In particular Is tho
victim of this drend self-communlns. For
upon the opinion of tho high nnd mighty
among whom he fondly aspires to sit
hongs Us social entree or his social
downfall. Ho Is nover a free agent. Not
for him to weigh his actions by his own
standards of what Is correct and fitting
for lilm to dot No, Indeed! Ho must
submerge his own Individuality In tho
opinions of others! By so doing ho may
gain tho longed-for entrance Into tlio
society for which his soul yearns, but ho
will find that he has lost a measure of
his own solf-rcspect, For freedom to act
according to one's own standards Is es
sential to moral growth.
I know a delightful family who wero
hampered at every turn by this question
of the opinion of their neighbors. "What
will people say?" was really tho watch
word of their house. There was n very
charming' little daughter, who was par
ticularly bright and Intelligent.
Her father declared that he couldn't
afford to send her to prlvatcschool. What
& lamentation ensued In that family at his
very sensible decision!
"Oh, John," walled his wlfo In a heart
broken way, "we simply can't let Mary
go to public school! What will people
"Rubbish," said Mary's father, cheer
fully. "Mary will get a splendid educa
tion and be out-of reach of all the foolish
snobbery which goes on In these private
schools. Even If I were a rich, man, I
would send her to public school."
But Mary's mother was inconsolable.
She' wept for days.
What Is popularly known as "Keeplns
Up Appearances" Is another bane much
akin to "What Will People Say?" There
are hundreds of husbands who literally
are working themselves to death for this
sole purpose. Tho phrase is deceptive, too,
The Bird's Nest That
DOWN In the sunny Southland there
lived a tiny little bird whose mother
called Tweek. Wasn't that a funny
name? We would think so, but Tweek's
mother thought it was the very best
name he could possibly have; because he
was so gay and cheerful nnd because,
bright and early every morning, Tweek
would call to her, "tweek, tweek!" That
was his way of saying "good morning,
Tweek and his three brothers and two
liters lived in a pretty little nest high
up in a big banana tree. They were such
tiny little birds, you zee, and their nest
was so small and so carefully tucked
out of sight that, looking up from the
ground, you would never have guessed
there was any nest there at oil I
When Tweek grew old enough to look
around a bit and to have opinions of

'Jfother, why do you build our nest up
here so high? Why don't you build tt
down, among: tho bunches of bananas?
They are so pretty and yellow, I would
like to live among them!"
"Maybe you would," replied his mother,
"but U Isn't safe."
"Isn't safe!" exclaimed Tweek, and he
yed the pretty golden bunches thought
fully, "how funny! They seem as pleas
ant and peaceful as can bet"
"Oh, the bananas are all right," replied
bis mother, laughingly, "but every once
in a while men come and with strong
knives cut, down tho great bunches.
Where would ypur bone be then? Tell
Tweek looked at the fruit carefully, but
he answered not a wgrd. He determined
to watch tlioia bananas and see for tilm
gelt what happened.
So be watched and be watched and

Not only among thoso of moderate In-

to Europe early last summer. In Paris
there were many delightful little places

was limited. They didn't caro about somo
of tho regular show places, but most re

with bated breath. "For what would peo

"Oh, papa!" sho exclaimed, "the Smith

they aro traveling first-class. Please

possibly travel second when they are on

homo to America they will tell everybody
In the town. And what will people say?"
I watched, amused, to see what would
happen. The father meekly changed the
tickets for the more expensive ones, and
later I saw an enthusiastic greeting be
tween him and paterfamilias Smith
Robertson. But I wondered how much
real liking and sincerity could lie behind
It all. For tho bane of enjoyment in

Will People Say?" is not conducive to
either friendship or sincerity.

NORA BAYES ASKS DIVORCE
Actress Sues Third Husband In New
York., Nora Bayes. the actress, who lived at
Oak Lane before she made n reputation
on the stage, has started suit against her
third husband, Harry Clarke, for an ab
solute divorce, according to dispatches
from New York today.
Every effort has been made by the
actress to surround the case with secrecy,
as she did her divorce from her second
husband, Jack Norworth, They were
divorced In Chicago about two years
Miss Bayea' flrat husband was C. A.
Greasing, a Chicago business man. He
was divorced from her shortly after sho
had made her mark on the stage.
A barricade of names has been put up
about the present divorce proceedings,
records of which show merely an action
by Eleanora K. against Harry Prince.
It was learned, however, that Miss
Bayes was christened Eleanora. The real
name of Jack Norworth, her second hus
band, was Knauf, hence the "K," and
the name of her present husband's moth
er was Adelaide Prince.

"And you remember roe, too, my
friend?" said Lopez.
The landlord looKea tne ctpaniaru uv
.n rinnn. "No. I do not remember you,"
ho answered In a tone that Implied that
Lopea was not worth remembering.
"Well, we will take a bottle of wine
together," said the Spaniard, with a
laugh, and then the next time you see
me perhaps you will not forget so easily."
They had a bottle of wine together In
the sunny courtyard of the Inn a bottle
of the best and most expensive wlne in
the cellars of the Rose d'Or. A -cold wind
was blowing In from the sea, but In this
sheltered spot it was as warm as one
could wish. Lopez talked of everything
but the subject that was uppermost In his
mind until the bottle of wine was finished.
"And now you will have a cigar," he
said. "Not before, because It would spoil
that wonderful wine, eh? Never have I
tasted such wine In France."
"Nor anywhere else." grunted the land
lord. He was a big stout man with a
red face and a peaked yellow beard. He
took a cigar from Lopez'a case and ex
amined it critically. Then he lit It and
closed his eyes.
"Good, eh?" queried Lopez when a min
ute bad elapsed.
"Not too bad."
"An English milord gave thera to me,"
said he In a whisper. "Milord la a very
rich man more than two million francs
a year, friend roulatn. How would you
like a little of that to come your way?"
Foulaln opened bla eyes, closed them,
again, and shrugged bis fat shoulders.
"One of those three men we were speak
ing of," Lopez continued, "before your
delicious wine made me forget the world
and everything, is a most dearly beloved
relation of milord. He wants news of
him. He will pay for It."
"Which one?" queried Poulain sharply,
"The short one with the scar on bis
chn. If you can help me to find hira
there will be MO francs for you."
''Where la It?" said the landlord, look
ing round the courtyard derisively. "I do
not see It,"
Lopez took 19 tO-frano notes from bis
pocket and laid them on the table. Then
be laughed and put them Into bis pocket
"Where did they go those three from
here?" queried the Spaniard.

laid one of the notes on the table, "and

noto and looked at it
"Well," said Lopez, "where did they
"Down to tho harbor. They did not
know that I followed them."
"Ah, friend Poulain, you are In the
habit of following your guests, eh?"
"When they aro not quite well, what
guests Bhould bo."
"They were odd, eh these three?"
Lopez smiled and stroked his black mus
tache. The guests must havo been odd
indeed if they had aroused the suspicion
of M. Poulain, who, if all accounts were
to be believed, allowed somo very queer
characters to stay in his hotel.
"Odd in what way?"
'Well, tho girl, who walked like a boy
half dead sho was, and no mistake. They
took u private sitting room, and she never
came downstairs till the day they left.
But Jules, who waited on them, Bold she
looked half dead. He spoke to her once
and she did not answer him just laughed
In a silly sort of way."
"Well, what happened when they
reached the harbor, friend Poulain?"
"The girl, who was so 111 she had to be
carried, and the little man went on board
a ship. The big man left them, and I
went homo after I had followed him to
"You took no further interest in them,
"No; so long as they were out of the
town I did not care. I had found out
enough to tell the police if they came to
me they do come at times, as you know,
and I dare say it Is the same in your own
country. It Is only In England that the
police do not care who comes or goes."
"And the name of the ship? You doubt
less noted that?"
"The Marie Joseph a small bark the
kind of ship people do not travel in. She
set sail that same afternoon."
"For what port? I suppose you did not
"Ah, there you are wrong. She was
sailing for Valparaiso. Doubtless if you
go there you will be able to find the dear
friends of the English milord."
Lopez took out a greasy pocket-book
and made several notes In It.
"What were the names of these peo-
ple?" he queried. "I shall say, the
names that they gave to you? They were
English, of course?"
"Yes and of tho name of Watford
the son and the daughter. The doctor's
name I do not know."
"So he was a doctor, was he?"
"Yes, he told me so."
"Is there anything else you think I
ought to know?"
"There Is nothing else."
Then we will havo another bottle of
The landlord fetched another bottle, and
before It was finished Lopez had handed
him 600 francs.
Then Lopez ordered a conveyance and
drove down to the harbor. He found
an ofllclal of the port authorities, and said
"Has the Marie Joseph, a email
barque, been In here recently?"
The ofllclal laughed. "No," he replied,
"and we are not likely to see her again
for some time."
"And why not. If I may ask?"
"Because, my friend, she is at the bot
tom of the sea."
Lopez 'frowned. The ofllclal seemed to
be amused rather than sorry that a good
ship had gone to her last resting place.
"Wrecked, eh?" be said.
"But that Is the same as wrecked, is It
"In most cases, my friend, I am afraid
that It is the same. One does not sail the
seas for more than a year without being
seen or coming into port."
Lopez took the official by the arm In a
"I did not hear of It." he said. "I had
friends on board. Where can I get in
formation?, I saw nothing in the news
papers," "One does not see such things in the
papers a few lines and that Is all. Now,
if she bad been a gTeat steamship with

ing found no wreckage, or even a bot
tle floating in tho sea?"
Tho ofllclal laughed. "There was no
wreckage," ho replied, "but if you will
como with me I will toll you where she
was last seen."
Lopez went with tho man Into the office,
and when certain books and papers had
been consulted ho was told that tho Marie
Joseph had lost been sighted In latitude
46, longitude 15. The ofllclal produced a
map and showed him the exact spot.
"Wouldn't that bo rather out of her
course?" said Lopez.
"Yes, very much out of her course, my
friend. She ought to have been a thou
sand miles to the west of that, on her
way round Capo Horn." i
"Any message pass between her and
tho vessel that Bighted her?"
"She signaled her name, port of depar
turo and destination, and that 'all was
well.' From that day to this she has
never been heard of. It is supposed that
she went down in a hurricane which
raged a few days afterwards and in
which many ships perished."
"But there was nothing not oven a life
"Nothing so far. But one never knows.
Sometimes years afterwards there Is a
belt or pleco of a boat. The ocean is a
big place, my friend,"
Lopez thanked the official profusely,
and returned to his bedroom at the Rose
D'Or. Lighting a cigar, he flung himself
on his bed and studied the notes he had
made. It seemed to him that, unless he
could traco tho man who had not sailed

It was hardly likely that he could trace
their movements back from this, known

havo to try and find the big man, and
that would be difficult, as he had not seen
him without his beard. Moreover, he did
not know his name. It would have been
easier If the big man had sailed In the

Now, Elinor didn't Rive me evon a hint

Mrs. Patrick Campbell's
Advice on Clothes
"My clothes always bore mo to death,"
said Mrs. Patrick Campbell, tho well-
iMiuivu jiiiKiiau acircss, "ana whenever
I seo anything that I really want, I find
that I can't afford it I like to dress my
parts properly, but I hate thinking about
my own clothes. I don't think about
them I don't consider it necessary. It
tnkes a superior person to llvo up to a
gorgeous costume One sees so many
womon who aro overpowered by their
clothes, who are quite lost In them. Wnat
ono wears should always bo subordinate
to what ono Is. If women would only
realize how much moro effective aro
simple gowns that glvo tho personality a
chance than tho elaborato affairs which
make one fcol that a bundlo of clothes
has suddenly become endowed with lo
comotion. "It Is much worse to bo overdressed
than undepressed," continued Mra.
Campbell. "I don't want my first im
pression of a woman to be of a foot or a
blouse, or an evening gown. I want to
have a glimpse of her individuality, tho
thing that makes hor different from
every one else in tho world. Whatover
her clothes may be they should glvo this
thing a chance. If they don't, then thoy
are the wrong clothes. Do you suppose
I ever think of what my friends wear?
Of course, I don't."
"Nearly all women feel most natural and
unconstrained In slmplo things, which Is
another reason why simplicity In dress Is
the J-est guide to follow. The well
dresstTi woman wears her clothes as If
they belonged to her, and doesn't look as
If she's Just stepped out of a shop or
down from a Christmas tree.
"I do bellevo in freshness and dainti
ness for women. Even if one can't
afford to spend much money on one's
dress, one can wear Immaculate shoes
and gloves and collars. Thoy add so much
to the general appearance.
"While I havo put emphasis on sim
plicity In dress, it is a principle which Is
naturally not observed so much here as
In England. American women may dress
more elaborately than English women
for qeveral reasons. In the first placo they
are different types. Then, here you havo
the fashion of living bo much outside
your homes, of dining frequently at hotels
and restaurants, nnd it is only natural
tfiat you should dress more. Most Ameri
can women nave moro money to spend on
dress than English women of similar
social position, and I think American
men, who are so kind and generous, en
Joy seeing their women In beautiful and
