BUSINESS WOMAN'S RECORD
A mart himlness woman whose skirts
Wer threaten to divorce themselves from
Ur blouses and whoso nicely colffed hair
tai.marvel to behold declared that to take
snore than twenty minutes Is criminal.
"Neat nnd becoming dressing Is essential
to a woman's success In any line," sho
i, vouchsafed, "but having too much time is
eften worse than having not enougu. iou
re apt to dawdlo and try your hair in
mera! different ways, before you discover
that your allotted time is nlmost up nnd you
must leave It tho last way, whether It Is
becoming or not. My rule Is to put every
thing that 1 require out nt night. I give
myself twenty minutes In tho morning and
manage to stay snug all day."
But tho svteto saleswoman at the per
fume counter, who Is a marvel to all who be
hold her. was exceedingly cynical when she
was told that there nro people who can
dress In twenty minutes.
'They have maids," sho said flatly, "who
work all day for them. They never have
to atop to run ribbons through, or sow but
tona on their shoes or put drawing strings
Into their petticoats. Their bath Is turned
en for them. Their things are laid out. They
don't have to root arouiid to And out where
their other collar tho clean one Is. I
could dress In twenty minutes, too. If I had
