,Why the Rule Forbidding: Anything Really Use
ful to Be Received by the Well-Bred Girl?
She Who Laughs and She Who Smiles
WHEN1 Owen Johnson wroto "Tlio
Salamnndcr" several years ngo ho
told of tho means used by a certain class
of girls to exist more than that, to live
on virtually nothing a year. How
when theso girls received lutgo boxes ot
orchids, they made an arrangement with
tho florist whereby they woro permitted
to return tho Ilowors to him, receiving
for thorn a small sum to bo used In pay
ing tho long-ovcrduo rent. When boxes
of costly sweets arrived from n Fifth live
nuo establishment tho card was removed
and tho boxes exchanged for tho actual
necessities of life.
This Is all very well for that typo of
girl. Perhaps alio can do It without
singeing her wings although personally
I doubt it.
But I have often wondered nt tho per
versity of tho domands made by conven
tion In tho caso of tho young girl who,
although of good birth and position and
possessed of many acquaintances, is sadly
lacking In this world's goods. 1 havo In
mind ono girl who Is having a struggle
to make ends meet. Sho recolved no less
than twenty pounds ot expenslvo choco
lates in no less expenslvo boxes and bas
kets on Christmas. Altogether the sum
represented must havo been considerable,
yet this girl Is actually in need of clothes.
But, unlike tho little salamander, she
can only pretend to bo delighted over
each and every box.
TTAVE you over stopped to think of the
difference in emotion expressed by
tho laugh nnd tho smile? Some one said
the other day in speaking ot ft woman
alio knew, "Sho never laughs." True, but
sho does smile.

Cleaning Large Grater
To the Editor ot Woman' Puae:
Dear Madam I havo a four-sided grater,
whtctt comprises large and small perforation.
Until lately I have used the common method
ot cleaning It with soap and hot water. In a
desres. I found this way both slow und always
unsatisfactory, unit! I thought of a. newer and
mora expedient plan. Here It Is simple, satis
factory, successful: When the tlner perforations
ofyour grater become clogged with dried fruit,
lemon or orange peel, or. In fact, any other
residue of former operations, take a crust of
hard bread or cake and rub It gently up and
down the perforations. In less than five min
ute the grater will bo cleaned.

Katie evldenllv knew what sho was talk

was thoroughly bewildered. I have hail
many curious experiences with the mental
twists of nllen Ktfla of Katie's class,
this was something new
"What do you mean, Kntlc?" 1 asked,

"Katie, you am talking the mosf ridicu

Ignorance and superstition the girl dis

I had a sudden Inspiration. "Listen to

smartest, the ones tho rest of tho people

"Xo-o." The admission camo from her
reluctantly. I knew tho power of these
old-world Btipcrstltlnnn and revived to say
no more about the matter for ti while.
"We will talk more about thin Inter,

"Let's lake all tho corners nnd closets

the oterage young hourokeoprr for tho erlti

closot which was just big enough for our
small Icebox, with it set of shelves and
drawers opposite ,"nnd everything nut of

What I should do without Katie I did

cheery, so willing, thut housekeeping had
been an easy lask with her. I dreaded
unutterably either trying tho housework
myself or breaking In a new maid under
the critical eyes of Dicky's mother.
I wondored what Dicky would say to
Katie's defection. I Jo had Insisted upon

Katie had dono the houemvork fur a bach

How to Light Your
WK AHB all fairly agreed thut the pleas
nntest light Is not the direct glare or
gas. oil lamp or electric bulb over our eyes,
hut what Is called tho "indirect" or "seml
ludirect" forms or lighting.
The "Indirect lighting" Is tho system
whereby thu electric bulbs are kept In an
Inverted opaquo buwl, and as tho direct
raya of tho bulbs ore thus thrown upward
there is no glaro on thu eyea, but the light
is gently suffused ubout tho room from
Tlfe "semi-Indirect" system of lighting
U somewhat simllur, except that the in
verted bowl Is not so opaquo, but permits
somo light to be reflected downward.
The most common tjpes ot glnsa bowls
used for this purpose ure tho whlto composi
tion glaBs familiar to us all. nut there am
Borne novel Ideas In these bowls which aro
especially adapted to tho homo nnd which
may ilnd moro faor with tho liomemaker
than even some of the beautiful whlto ones,
because the latter are Identified In many
peoplo's minds with commercial lighting,
tit course, the commercial bowls aro stand
ardized in pattern, nnd those for home
uto ure usually more ornato and beautiful.
Xow, however, we seo that wo can use
many other styles of "bowls" In this way
Ono of tho prettiest effects seen in une
homo was simply a bruwn wicker basket
of the workbasket shape, lined with yellow
silk. This was suspended from tho celling
by thick cord stained brown to match the
brown wicker, und gave n gay. outdoor ulr
to the city living room. Theso brown
wicker baskets are not expensive, and one
clever housekeeper bought a basket of the
required size In natural color, und stained
and lined it herself. For the country cot
tage where J here is electricity this is mobt
appropriate and lovely.
Another unique effect was seen In a very
beautiful home whero Japanese furnishings
and coloring prevailed. Instead of the con
ventional chuva bowl fur tho electric bulbs,
u gay parasol with a long handle was used.
Tho narusol was suspended from the ceiling,
by what looked like a wide ribbon, and In"
Which the electric wiring was cunningly
concealed. Two or three tiny parasols wire-
placed horizontally near tho wall over the
wall bockets and the whole effect was ex
ceedlngly novel und pretty.
Very often somo unusually lovely Ideas
ore developed by getting away from tho
usual lamp and lamp shade Ideas and'
adapting something entirely different. Thus
In one home a very unique blue lamp was
made by the liomemaker herself.

The bed. of course, would have to stay
where It was. Kortunately. 1 had a R"!
supply of bed linen and dresei- scarfs.
Ot course, 1 could talso nil the personal
belongings from my dressing table.
Dlcky'R mother would havo her own things,
t began to dismantle my dressing table
with a heavy heart. It wns foolish. 1 knew',
to start rearranging things so soon, but If
I had lo change things around I wanted
to have it over with.
Uut when I had laid my toilet articles
and tho other belongings of my dressing
lablo on tho bed nnd had put the Unci;
scarf Into tho hamper of soiled clothing, 1
had a sudden thought
Where wns I to put these things nnd tho
contents of mv chlffotinler drawers? I had
said grandly to Dlelty that I Would dress
In the bathroom, but there was no place
thoro to put my things. 1 had also said
that t would rent a room In the building
for myself, but In my henrt I knew that
t would nover do It.
When Dicky, only a few ovenlngs before,
had proposed to turn over his bank ac
count to mo, I to take charge of till our ex
penditures, I had determined lo ru.i things
ns economically us possible. Thu added
rental ot another room was not to bo

"Wot you doing. Missus tlralium?" shu

"I mil trying lo decide whero to put my

see, 1 am going to givo Mr, (.irnham's
mother this room."
"Whero you sleep?" Katie looked bel
ligerent. "I nm going to sleep on a couch bed hi
tho dining room," I returned. I felt llko n
child being catechized by Its teacher. "I
will dress In the bathroom, but I do not
know whero tu put my things. 1 tin not
want to buy a new thlffonnler. There is
no loom for anything but a t-lilffunlor in
tho bathroom, and it will look so out of
place In there."
Katie was silent for a minute, evidently
tinning over thu problem In her mind.
"I tell you vot," sho said excitedly nt

"Katie, you aro a genius," I replied en
thusiastically. "I'll glvo you thu money
now. and you may go any time this morn
ing and buy the chest of drawers. I will
get tho stuff for tho curtains this after

"It tinno of my business, but I tlnk Mees

hurried toward tho kitchen.
Sho saw a largo vase with an eight-inch
opening that was tlio exact shape she
wanted. So sho promptly bought it, filled
It with plaster of parls, and had thu little
base tu contain tho lamp burners set In
this. Then sho found somo blue cretonne
to match her blue vaso, and inadti a lamp
shade herself to match It, and sho is ex
ceedingly proud of the "homo-made lamp,"
as she calls It.
Somo of thu smaller slender vases can
bo adapted for candlelight for the night
table or the guest room table. Very ulton
It Is easy to match thu pattern of the
Dresden or other china vases In cretonne
and to make u shade to match and your
result will be equal to many of the beit
stores' imported creations.
