PRIZE SUGGESTIONa HOUSEKEEPING HINTS AND SPRING FASHIONS FOR EVERY WQMAl
On the Opportunities of Life
.There Is an old and trite savins that
work Is the salvation of mankind. It
certainly la tho ealvntlon of womankind,
for the woman who has 110 work to oc
cupy her ,mlhd Is a very unhnppy
creature, and very greatly to be pilled.
Very few women seem to adequately
re nil to how lucky they 'are In havlna rent
work to do. They groan and they grum
ble about It, and to hear them talk one
would Imagine fnat they arc the most
Ill-used persons on tho face of the earth.
This attitude of mind Is a llttlo dlfllcult
to Understand. One meets women who
aro today holding good positions and
earning salaries which many a man
might envy yet they aro discontented
and envious of the lot of tho Idle and
wealthy, who, In reality, nre not one
tenth as fortunate as themselves, If tho
grumblers only know ltl
'Mrs. So-nnd-So Is so fortunate In hav
ing a rich nusband," they wilt say In
melancholy tones, "while we liae to
work hard every day! Hnw perfectly
lovely It would be If we could lend easy,
pleasant lives without a care Jn tho world
and no work to do!"
But the grumbler falls to realise that
to live "without a care In the wot Id"
Is a blissful state which exists only In
the Imaginations of novelists. Idealists
and dreamers- In this plain, matter-of-fact
old world each person must shoulder
his or 'nor own burdens. Moral respon
sibility cannot be shifted from the shoul
ders of one class to the shoulders of
another class. Each must work out his
or her own salvation and happiness. And
happiness never yet was found In Idle
ness. The middle-class workers who envy the
rich for what they Imagine arc their
easy, sheltered, care-free lives aro Ig
norant In their envy. For tho very rich
In moat cases woik quite as hard as the
No woman who has work to do and
who has others depending on her should
over grumble. Tor her opportunities and
her chances of happiness are gicat.
The woman who Is, presumably, with
out responsibilities or obligations of any
sort Is never really happy. Site becomes
neurotic, her mind and her outlook grow
natroW and selfish, nnd she becomes n
burden to herself and to others, for she
cannot really respect heiself. and the
fading Is scarcely conduct e to happiness.
No woman who Is today shirking hei
obligations and her duly to her neighbor
and to society in leading sin Id.e. useless
life can have any feeling pf happiness.
On the other hand, tho woman who can
truly say that sho is contributing her
share, however small, to the world's uorl;
and for the world's benellt lina a feeling
of self-respect and a glow of self-satisfaction,
which nothing but woik, and
sheer hard work, will bring.
The large army of women who are
today neurotic, nervous, semi-Invalid and
generally miserable would do well to
realize this fact. In sheer hard work
alone lies their salvation. Not until they
become 'really necessary to the happiness
of others, not until they become useful
members of society will they Ilnd a cute
for their Imaginary ailments.
For the mil. J Is a curious thing. It
ONCE upon a lime some fall lea lived
In a big conservatory.
Of course they hadn't always lived
there, for fairies live In the big out-of-doors
not shut up In class houses.
But when the cold winter time came,
and the flow era and birds wero gone, the
fairies ran into jtha big greenhouse to
hide one day and they liked it so well
they stayed and stayed till they almost
thought they had lived there always.
The greenhouse was large and roomy
and waa full of beautiful plants palms
and ferns and plants of all kinds,
"I don't know that I like this 'home'
o very well after all," said gne fairy
after they had lived there two or three
"What In the world can be the matter
wjtb. this home!" exclaimed another. "It

"Oh, I know that." answered the first
tvry discontentedly, "but you see I don't
car much about growing things unless
they bloom, and In all this Mr conserva
tory there is not a single bloom I"
The fairies alt looked around and saw
tbat -what the fairy aald was true there
tv sa not a flower in the whole bouse!
"Tlutt must be tbs reason," said ons
taHMtlntfly. "why this place didn't seem

must bo occupied, must bo employed If
It Is to grow at all. Mental stagnation
Is one of the worst evils that can befnll
womankind, and tho woman who shuns
honest, hard work Is certainly V'ourtlni
A mind unemployed will turn hack on
Itself, It will harbor unpleasant thoughts,
It will brood over small happenings Hint
In tho normal course of events would be
quickly passed over and forgotten, It
will magnify them to enormous propor
llnns, and It will make for Itself all sorts
of Imaginary troubles.
Whether a woman be rich or poor, mar
ried or single, she must ork. There Is
no room In this world for shirkers.
The glory of work Is so wonderful that
once one has really come under Its spell
thero Is nothing that can quite compare
with tt. "Something attempted, something
done" brings a satisfaction that Is utterly
soul-satisfying. In achievement, In work
for ot'ncre, In accomplishment Is the
truest happiness to be found.
Plaits or shirrlngs add tho necessary
touch of fullness which the fashlonablo
silhouette requires. In a very new coat
modcl a plait was set In over each hip,
extending to tho bottom of tho loat, nnd
the top Is tovcred by a loose belt around
the waist line. The same Idea of side full
ness Is can led out in the skirt, the yoke
of the sklit Is round and tho lower sec
tion is cut on circular lines and put on
the yoke rvenly. The lower section Is nlsj
shirr' il to the vokc.
Some very ntttnctlvc Imported spoits
coats are made of big shawls or steamer
rugs. A filngc finishes off the bottom nnd
the cape section, which falls over the
sleeves, or is placed on the edge of the

The Dluc-oyed Kitten
IT WAS three days before tho wedding,
Constunco had lost Interest in the
presents that hnd been pouring In, They
were all fo conventional and there had
been such n tiresome repetition of stiver,
xlass nnd china,
''Why can't people bo original oven In

Ilor meditations were Interrupted by
the entrnnco of a Innld with a. note
"For me?" nsked Constance, stretching
forth her hand.
She rend the note twice, thrice, her
face aglow with curloBlty, Interest nnd
memories nf tho past.
"My denr Connie I hear you nre to be

"Wishing you all IiapplnesB, I am, most

tho house of a Mrs. Symlngton-Smythe,
and met over so many delightful people.
I danced bo often with my Irishman
friend that Elinor grow quite anxious.
However, as I explained to her, he really
Is such an excellent partner that v thero
was somo excuse.
The gowns thoro wero too lovely for
words. Our hostess woro n perfectly
Btunnlng frock of heavy brocade. In an
exquisite simile of pale bluo, embroidered
In silver. It' wns cut 'ory plainly In tho
Grecian style, harking back to tho slmplo
classla lines that aro so becoming to the
woman of good figure.
A broad low glrdlo was worn, tho enda
hanging down in front, and tho draped
aklrt had a train, Tho whole effect was
perfectly charming, tho bodlco being
edged with silver embroidery to match
tho heavy silver design on tho frock,
and a collar of moonstones and silver wns
also worn around tho throat.
Another lovely frock was of pompadour
satin, in an exquisite shell-pink slindo,
"One can always toll a lady by Vr
shoes nnd by her gloves," Is nn adage
with which most of us nro familiar. And
yet it Is an adage tho truth of which
very few peoplo who havo to keep care
ful account of their money can bo
brought to realize.
They buy a new dress or a new coat
or a now Bklrt, but will go about quite
chcorfully with shoes down-trodden at
tho heels and gloves alt In holes,, feel
ing that as long as their dress Is all right
no ono will pay any attention to such
details as shoes and gloves.
But they are wrong hopelessly wrong.
Shabby gloves and shabby shoes are
not only the most flagrant way of adver
tising "shabby gentility" that could pos
sibly be devised, but they servo also as
a most unfavorable Index to character,
If you only knew.
A large employer of femnlo labor told
mo the other day that when engaging
girl clerks and other assistants ho always
looked at their hands.
"I can Bum them up generally by their
gloves," ho snld. "When their gloves
are tidy I know that they will be tidy
In their work. In fact, I may say that a
neatly darned glovo has been tho means
of getting many a girl a placo in my
business and I havo never found my de
ductions go wrong as yet."
So do tako this lesson to heart, and Jn
keeping up appearances, as far as dress
Is concerned, don't neglect tho details.
Here are somo hints nbout gloves which
mano for economy in every way.
Remember that kid gloves wear ever so
much longer than suede, so that from
tho point of view of economy tho former
aro tho better to get. Suede gloves wear
In holes very quickly, nnd, whnt Is more,
they don't look as well as kid ones do
Be careful that your gloves fit well.
Tight gloves not only make your hands
red, but are apt to split easily; whilst
gloves which are too large look most un
tidy. Always get the assistant at the glove
counter to stretch them Bllghtly and dust
a little powder into the glovos before
taking them away with you.
And do be careful as to how you put on
new gloves for the first time, for on
the care you tnke will depend the time
they will keep in shano.
Never put them on hurriedly take your
time over it. Rest your elbows on the
table while putting on each glove. Work
all the fingers Into the glove-fingers be
foro putting In the thumb, and, above
all, see that tho Beams are not twisted,
but that they are all In place.
Here Is a wlso precaution which you
should never forget to take. Stitch all
tho buttons on firmly beforo beginning to
wear the gloves. Uaually some of them
will be found to be loose, and will come
off the very first time you wear them If
you forget to do this.
If after taking off light kid gloves you
stretCn them out gently and put them
away between sheets of clean tissue pa
per, you will find that they keep their
shape ever ao much longer.
Is Homo Cleaning Economy?
Kid and suede gloves can bo cleaned
quite well with gasoline, rut a little In
a basin, put the gloves on tho hands, and
clean by rubbing with a piece of flannel
until nil dirt la removed.
It must be remmbered, though, that
gasoline Is highly Inflammable, and too
much care cannot be taken In using it.
It never should bo used In a high tem
perature or anywhere near a fire or a
