Thoroughness an Asset.
One uunlltieulidn n business girl
should cultivate, if she wants to give
satisfaction mid to bo sure always of

who does things thoroughly Is a Joy
to her employer. Let her have that
reputation and a business man will
bolt the olllt'o door for fear she will
escape before he can engage her.
The girl who half does her work is
everywhere. The girl who is thorough
is rare. And. like all raro things, she
Evprywlnere thoroughness Is rated
high. All lines of work require it. It
is a quality that employers need most
urgently. It Is absolutely essential to
successful business. A business man
can't afford to Jeopardize his business
by placing it in the hands of tho girl
who half does her work. He knows
that the Injurious results of neglect,

WERE AT DANGER POINT.
Sir Edward Grey Admits Germany and
England Were Near War.
London, Nov. 28. In tho opinion of
Europe, history was made In the house
of commons when Sir Edward Grey,
the secretary of state for foreign af
fairs, delivered his notable speech
clearing up much of tho mystery
which has clung about the part which
Great Britain took in the negotiations
While the utterances of Sir Edward
wero conservative in every way, tho
fact stands out clearly that the rela
tions between England and Germany
were strained last summer to the dan
;er point. That the British govern
ment refused to permit Germany to
deal with Franco without being con
sulted in turn was revealed by Sir Ed
ward, who, while denrecatlntr tho inn
that Lloyd-George's speech of July last
was threatening in its nature, left a
strong impression on the minds of his
hearers that a threat was intended.
He went so far as to intimate that tho
speech was suggested by Premier As
Sir Edward did not enter into an ex
planation of the reports which have
been in circulation that Great Britain
had been prepared for hostilities whilo
tho Moroccan negotiations wero in
progress. So far as that portion of
the controversy is concerned, the min
ister confined his statement to tho ex
pression of a personal disbelief of tho
report which has been circulated from
time to time that an abrupt break had
been likely in tho relations between
Germany and Great Britain. While
ho admitted that during tho month of
July there had been periods of anxiety,
ho evidently was of tho opinion that
thcro had been no real danger. lie
made it obvious that during that
month Germany had abstained from
all communication with the British
government, but despite this fact Sir
Edward explained that he had twice
outlined the attitude of Great Britain
to the German ambassador at London.
It was apparent from this that Lloyd
George's speech was made for tho pur
pose of forcing a reply from tho
kaiser's minister and bringing tho Ger
man government to terms. It was
Just as apparent from tho speech that
this policy 'was successful.
First Aid to Silver Bag.
"Where's your lovely silver bag?"
asked a keen eyed woman of the friend
who had come to meet her.
"Oh," was the nlaintlvc answer. "1
have had to stop wearing It.' It leaves
a dirty mark against all mv light
dresses, and, besides, I'm afraid of
wearing it out. .My keys and things
poke holes In tho links so."
Any possessor of one of those very
desirable silver bags will have experi
enced these troubles, but there is reallj
no need to put the pretty things
11 way except for, dark clad occasions,
when nothing more serious than a
handkerchief and a notebook are car
ried. Silver bags certainly get very
dirty, but they have tho advantage
over leather and suedo ones of being
When your bag is dark and dull look
ing simply drop it into a bowl of hot
water to which a little ammonia has
been added. You will be surprised at
tho dirt that will roll out. A good
brushing with soap and a soft nail
brush will finish tho cloaninc: nrocess.
Tho bag should now be rinsed in clear
hot water and rubbed with a soft towel
7hlle it is still warm.
