WOMAN IN HER WORK AND LEISURE-SPRING FASHIONS, PRACTICAL ARTICLES AND
The Woman Who Doesn't Know Her Own Mind
Tho woman who doesn't know her own
rnlnd Is only too common nowadays. She
nUtters from a painful lack Of decisive
ness, of quick notion, and nbovo nil sho
wastes the tlmo of herself and of every
body else with whom she comes In con
"t can't mako up my mind," Is a
femlnlno phraso that Is heard every
where one Roes.
The woman who doesn't know what
she wants Is a dreadfully trying proposi
tion. Her character Is essentially weak,
of course. She needs to bo morally
Propped up, guided and "bossed" by
others, or she will drift helplessly along
and never accomplish 'anything at all.
Some women nre born with this painful
lack of decision deeply rooted In their
Character. It Is a positive pain to them
to have any sort of responsibility or re
quest for Immediate decision thrust upon
them. They simply cannot rlso to tho
A case of this sort conies to my mind.
It la that of a young married woman
who ought to bo very happy, but who, on
tho contrary, Is very, very miserable.
who suffers from neurasthenia, and who
Is a oort of scml-lnvnild, nlwnys
querulous, always childish and a very
great nulsanco tp her family and friends.
When sho was a llttlo glr, sho never
could mako up her mind about anything.
Sho would waste hours over trifling llttlo
decisions which carried no real import
"What sort of candy shall I buy?" sho
would murmur to her school frlendB. "I
reauy can't mako up my mind what
sort I llko best! Plenso ndvlso me."
Their advlco never was nny good, for
no sooner had sho followed their de
cision that she would declare that sho
wished sho hadn't bought tho wretched
stuff, and that she hated It, anyhow, and
that they could ent It for all sho cared,
All of which was rather nnoylng for
tho llttlo school friends who had only
meant to bo kind. The llttlo girl's re
proaches didn't tend to make her popu
lar with the others.
she would lament her decision as unfor
tunate and Irrevocable.
Sho never could mako up her mind In
the matter of clothes, for Instance. Yet
Bho spent Mays nnd days constdTlng the
advisability of purchasing certain gar
ments. Sho would read nil the catalogue
and ponder over nil tho fashion books,
and then finally "almost" dccldo upon
So off sho would go to her dressmaker
nnd give the order for n gown, or a
suit, or n blouse, ns tho caso might be
Uut no sooner had that unfortunnto
dressmaker cut out tho pattern, and start
ed on the making of tho gown, or suit or
blouse, than tho telephone bell would
ring loudly and the volco of the Woman
Who Didn't Know Her Own Mind would
be heard over tno wire.
"I've changed my mind about that
stylo," sho would say. "Pleaso don't cut
It out till I come round."
The School Girt
From some sweet home, the morning
Hrlngs to the city,
Five days a week, In sun or rain,
Iteturnlng like a song's retrain,
A school girl pretty,
A wild flower's unaffected grace
Is dainty miss's,
Yet In her Bhy, cxpresslvo face
Tho touch of urban arts I trace
No one but Bho and heaven knows
Of what Bho's thinking.
It may bo cither books or beaux,
Flno scholarship or stylish clothes,
Per cents or prinking.
How happy must tho household be
This morn that kissed her;
Not every one can make so free,
Who sees her Inly wishes sho
Wero his own sister.
WILLIAM HENRY VENADLE.
As she grew older, this lack of Initia
tive grow stronger and stronger. All
eorts of decisions camo up, decisions on
big matters and on little matters, but sho
never, could make up her mind satis
factorily to herself.
It always took her ages to como to nny
sort of decision at all. She would chop
and change a dozen times In an hour
Then, when her friends dually nailed hct
down to some answer or plan or verdict.
And tho poor, harassed dressmaker
who knew that this would happen, ns
It always did happen a dozen times u
mouth-would havo to tell her that tho
gnrment was already cut out.
Then would come fittings nnd suggested
modifications and alterations, until the
gown wns completely ruined. And that
long-sufTerlng dressmaker would have to
start all over again.
When this woman went to buy hats It
wns just tho same or worse, If anything.
For sho had the salesgirls nearly enzy.
She would spend nbout two hours tiylng
on lints, discarding ono after another, un
til tho whole placo was strewn with tum
Then sho would slowly, and by dint
of great persuasion on the part of sales
girl and friends, fix on a certain hat and
buy It. But no sooner was the check
made out and tho receipt In her hands,
than sho would say: "Oh, there Is a hat
that I llko better than the ono 1'vo
bought! Please bring It here. Will you
change this ono for that ono? Thank you
very much. Yes, I'll take It with me."
iiut tno next day without fall she
would bring that self-same hat back to
tho store. "I don't think it really suits
me, bo I want to chango It," she would
say. And tho whole affair would start
The woman who doesn't know her own
mind about tho purchases sho wishes to
mako is the bugbear of salesgirls, and
a terror to her femlnlno friends. For she
Invariably drags tho latter into these
shopping expeditions, leans upon their
iiawce, nnn repudiates it later.
Strength of character nnd the power of
quick decision can be cultivated, and they
are tho best assets for tho battlo of life.
The woman who doesn't know her own
mind Is a social nnd ethical failure, and
the fcooncr she reforms, tho better for
herself nnd everybody else.
THE DAILY STORY
The Janitor's wife nllowcd herself to
hesltato and was lost. "There's on apart

Just like you used to ho when you nnd

Martha Jordan nodded her head. "I

Tho girl's face clouded. "Poor old

things. I believe It was the thought of
leaving me unprovided for that hastened
Mrs. Jordan took a latch key from be

and It will make your money hold out
longer. Doctor Ingram won't know tho
"But would it be right?" tho girl hesi
tated, "and suppose he should find out!"
"Not much chance," Martha said airily.
"Doctor Ingpim haB gono to Denver to
get back his nerve. Ho loft this key so
I could water his plantB. The doctor's
crazy over plants, nnd his front loom
looks Ilka a flower garden."
The girl reveled In the luxur of tho
apartment. Accustomed to the plainness
of a rambling, old country houte the
Turkish rugB and the artistic furnish
ings seemed the height of magnificence.
She succeeded in securing a position to
teach primary music In a private school
after much worry and many lettera writ
ten by the rector of her homo church.
She was to board and room at the schcol
when the term commenced and the
thought regretfully of giving up her
present artistic quarters.
Mrs. Jordan received one afternoon a
letter telling her when to have the rooms
ready and Marjorle Kershaw sprinkled
the doctor's plants that night
She determined to make some payment
for her free lodging so sho took from
the top of the bookcase the old silver
tray with Its tea service she would pol

apartments In good condition. She prob
ably spent too much energy on the first
piece, for, yawning in the coming twi
light, she leaned back on the pillows of
the couch, the silver spread around on
tho Rapt, and fell fast asleep.
If frld Mrs. Van Lear had not chosen
to Jfat sick: and to have refused to allow
s-nF one except her pet phyclclan to
.(bolt after her. John Ingram, would have
conformed to Mrs. Jordan's opinion, and
nevtr have known anything about It. As
It was, he let himself Into his apartments
that night about 9.
Reaching for the electric light, he
stumbled over his silver teapot, and the
tin on the couch 'at up suddenly, her
sleepy eyes blinking from the light She
save one gasp, then straightened her
self on the couch, her feet braced firmly
en the, floor. "I'm not afraid of you,"
the said breathlessly, eyeing the teapot
in 1)14 hand, and wondering what he had
already put la the small grip beside him.

very much when a boy with Jack's money
