! HER POINT OF VIEW S
Till: DOCTOltS bay that instead of
considering fads as something in
the way of freaks, fearsome, or
frivolous, or idiotic, as the case may
he, they should not ho frmmmi n,,i.
with so much violence by people who
have taken the contract or setting the
wot Id tight.
Instead, they should be encouraged
and even cherished. In these strenu
ous times they aie a saving grace, and
the oftener we chnnge them the better.
People who lmve fnds aie apt to
change them with more or loss fie
lueney. for a fad is .something that
Imh to be changed or It isn't a fad hut
a habit, and most habits, from the fact
of the natuial depiavlty of Inanimate
things, seem more likely to ho bad
than good. We ate not nearly so prone
to speak of the good habits of a person
as of his had ones. AVe say of the
child that he has the bad habit of
sucking his thumb, or not coming when
he Is called, or of being disobedient.
We do not make such prominent men
tion that he has the habit of always
replying politely when dlrectlv ad
dressed, or of eating Ills dinner 'daint
ily. Hence when a fad grows to he a
habit it i no longer nice nnd deserves
to be discountenanced.
The fad lady Is lea.sonably certain to
be up-to-date and Is unndslakably sure
to be an enthusiast. Xow. enthusiasts,
are nice people to know, unless they
gush. Hut a gusher isn't apt to have
fads, for she is too busy gushing. To
be enthusiastic Is to enjoy tho blight
places ot life and he able to see .sun
shine It; the daik places. It Is to follow
the gleam, as did Merlin even before
he built the fairy towns of Camelot.
Tho ono who looks on the sunny in
stead of the daik side adds to the
So the fad lady Is a benciu to her
race. She Isn't nlwajs collecting blue
pitchers. Sometimes It Is old lace, or
fans. To he sine, sometimes It may
1m cats, which is a little unfortunate
for her nelghbots. Sometimes she col
leets old furnitute. This Is. of course,
a dangeious stage, for It may sever
llfe-lnng friendship and drive hankers
to ruin. An old furniture fad, while
ostensibly the most Interesting In the
ealegoty. Is nlways extremely wearing
on somebody, usually Hie Man Who
Foots the Hills. He Is apt to dtead a
business ttlp, and to dually break the
newn of his depnrtnio to his household
through tho medium of a imssengei
hoy ami a note requesting a hand-hag
and appurtenances thereto, r )K. gavo
more ndvanced warning of his Inten
tions his wife would be piep.ued to
start off with him on a two-hundred

the-Wlspy cathedral chair of the date,
The moj.1 ratal uttacks of the old
furniture tad tun In the way of foui-ponei-buls
or rather bed; for to tho
enthusiastic bed hunter there Is never
but ono object of tho itimi unpre
empted in the woild. It always hap
pens that Just before she at rived on
the spot a moro enterprising juuy with
a piodellctlon for four-poster, had
found the only ono In the ,,..
Kion poked away in u dusky al
cove of soino old Pennsylvania
Herman home, had beguiled It
away ftom tho white capped Innocent
owner for a more song and after hear
ing this stoiy, hep disconsolate Hval
would he" triumphantly jdloted to a
nearby dealer In old furniture, (did
you over notice the strango coinci
dence thut a find of an old four-poster
Is almost Invariably located In tho
vicinity of a dealer In old furnlturo7j
to havo pointed, out tho Identical bed
with Its blessed four posts actually
carved In eighteenth century style.
After entovllle- her nllllntlnn fn,. ..
minutes tho dealer reluctantly admits
that ho known of nn old lady 'way off
from Lepanon down (with a rising In
flection) who has a fine old four-poster,
to be sure not tilto as heavily carved
as this which he believes he can per
suade hor to relinquish. Of courso it
would cost consldcrtbly more. In fact
ho could not confidentially state that It
could be bought for less than $12.". to
which his commission would bo added,
but ns sho wanted a four-poster so
very hard nnd as he did not believe nn
other, with the exception of tho ono
mentioned, could he found in tlie state
of Pennsylvania, perhaps she would
like to havo him pecute It for her. Tho
renovnllng need not bo so very expen
sive. Xnturully It would need somo
tubbing up. old mnhogany being so
bad about clouding.
Ko my lady, as excited as If sho had
been at nn auction salo bidding vocif
erously ngalnst herself, and tout be
tween reluctance to pay such nn ex
travagant price and the longing to go
proudly home with a four-poster and
drive her deal est Mend mad with
ency, finally commissions him to seek
the wily old lady and teiu from her
the priceless hcliloom.
Xexl In rank to the four poster bed
comes the claw-foot sofa, for he It
known that tho furnllure-fad lad. of
the piesent would rather go down to
her grave unwept, unhouoied and un
sung as ever having been the president
of n Wotnnn's club or owned a seal
skin coat or conducted n rummage sale
or Given an Interview on the subject
or .Mrs. Nation thnu not he able to
moke her will and leave a claw foot
sofa of the ccnluiy ago kin 1 among
Xow a claw-foot sofa of that piiol
Is a staid and dlgnltlcd piece of furni
ture. If It is authentic It Is covered
with hair cloth mid Is so hard hearted
that by no possibility could It be
Imagined as ever having contt United to
the loumnces of toAr.s- by bcln'r a
prominent fealuio In love making and
courtship. It has wcltd carving along
the mahogany frame nnd huge feet
which wete not accustomed to high
loiters In the shape of trie easteis on
which my lady has it mounted. Xow
the hnlr-cloth is removed at tlie fur
nisher's and nil velours or dlm-llneJ
topestiy substituted over nice new sofl
spiings. and when my lady Introduces
It as "Hreat gieat grandmother's you
know," we all know that It Is no mom
tho sofa of nnybody's great gieat
grandmother than It Is n set of her
big hoops." Sho would disclaim tho
soft, luxurious, rich lined nrtlele In
stanter and would class It as Inloult
ous as tho modern rocker.
One lady In this vicinity wanted her
husband to run for something or other
so that he could go to Harrisbuig nnd
she could incidentally accompany hint
to hunt a certain vintage of carved
hall table said to be produced In Hint
legion. "Ilm!" ejaculated Mr. Hus
band, "they raise something that be
gins with H down at Hairlsburg,
but I never heard It called a hall
