"1 would rather have my appreciation of biauty than beauty Itself, would raih'T my face showed strength of ch:!riici «<r. a high purpose in life, and depth of feeling, than to be as beautiful as Helen of Troy. As a mailer cf fact my looks have played a very small part In my career, have always tried to dress becomingly, and follow the usual rules of hygiene. But as to the shape or niy nose and the color of my eyes, whether my mouth was a perfect Cupid's bow and my complexion snow-white and rose-red, I can assure you 1 haven 't cared a fig. My face, for my pur- •tosps. has had to reflect the varying emotions of the parts I play. If it is I traplc. serious face as I have been old. it is because I have had to act: many tragic serious parts. Ethel Tos- caci is only one of numerous parts in which for an entire act my face ban L'H 'n drawn with suffering and weeping. "is it .iny wonder that I have a serious face or the beauty that must refrain trom .nil deep emotions to preserve its-'lf means little^ to me? A ?reat many girls start life handicap;T.>d with the morbid notion that they c :in never make a success because il.' y considor themselves plain. They s<ein to forgst that they have any minds or souls at all. They only remember that they have been denied a heritase of golden curls, melting bln«> eyes and cheeks like roses in the snow, as some jioet has put it. Xow, personally, I believe the so-called plain girl is less handicapped in life than the girl who haa the fatal gift of beauty. Its a very ephemeral and passing quality, this beauty, but in nine cases out of ten the girl who has it cohaiders it enough. •*rhW iKtwerful tool, she thinks, is all she needs to carve her way to nuc-^i j :CB». It never occurs to her that Ix'a'uty and beauty alone without any depth of character or culUvatioa. of mind. Is a very weak asset In tho bat-* tic of life; and that beauty combined with those riualitleg la capable of ac- complIshiiiK anything. I've heard those complaints from girls who assert that the pretty ones always get tlu? best positions. But, 1 ask. do the>.always hold the positions? It is the •'eompetent girl, looks looks, who %Jiis in the "nd; the girl who Is wlll- ibg to do the little things well in order that she may do the big things better. "My opinion is, that barring actual fatial deformities, there need be no plain girls according to th? old-fashioned, accepted idea of plainness, and that so-called be.auty has so little to do with real success that it may be counted as nothing against brains and ability. No woman who has good eyes and a good mouth is plain looking. "Nobody appreciates beauty more than I do. I thrill and throb in the presence of something really beautiful. I should like to cry whenever I see or hear anything that Is really beautiful, the kind lb* combines everything that is fine and noble, spirit and soul, line and color. "But this is a rare combination in people, and the girl who is going to be crushed at the outset by her plainness should remember that there are a great many other ways of charming.—New York World. * * * In this day and age when one's stationer offers such a variety of shapes, colors and grades of paper to a customer it is puzzling to know just what is good form for the particular kind of a note one has to write. But it remained for a bachelor (he doesn't live in lola) to make the FUNNIEST mistake imaginable. Every year Mr. Scott sends to the men who were his classmates in the University of Kansas, a holiday greeting and usually it is a card of some sort. On the list is a bachelor, who Is probably a strlctly-buslnegs man Whfn Mr. Sjpott took It from tbe envelope Tnd etOKbt A . (Hmpie of that dimlnntire bluebow,.lie of course expected to learn the name of some very young (riead wlioae pareoti were introducing It to the world In this formal fashion. But the card for the baby's name was blank and when he looked underneath at the larger oard, he found the holiday greeting of his bachelor schoolmate. The man must have a weakness for blue and no doubt when he saw the cards In the stationer's stock, he could not resist selecting something for New Year use which would reflect his own refined tasti. * + A Leap Year bob sled party is -being planned for tomorrow night, at which members of the Senior Pbiiathea class of the Christian church will be hostesses.

MX DRUOOlSTS .New York, .Ian. 13.—The destruction of the Equitable building by fire had a marked effect upon business in the i financial district, in the safes and safe deiMsit vaults of this building between JSOO.OOO 000 and 11 ,000.000,000 I of securities were placed for safe keep ! ing. A considerable proportion of these securities were being actively dealt in each day and their temporary locking up in voluntary escrow would have meant .-^erious complications had it not lieen for the prudent action of the Stock Exchange Governing Committee. As it is, the marvel is that so great a catastrophe in the financial district could take. i>lare with so little positive disturbance in financial affairs. That it did not create serious derangement is excellent testimony as to the efficiency of modem financial machinery. The building contain ed a vast amount of records and docu menl .J, the loss of which will prove a serious inconvenience to corporations 'awyers and individuals and yet the rilFasler will cause no serious loss outside of the destruction of the Eqilit- ptble property. The destructivenoss of the fire was almost a foregone conclusion when it is remembered that probably no building in the country contained such an accumulation of in flammable material in the form of libraries, documents, furniture, etc., which had been accumulating for the past thirty years or more. The stock maiket ai)parently re- (luire.s i^ome stirring Influenfe to lift it ou, of pre.sent inertia. Good new-s h;;-; been largly difcounte<l and unf.".v- 01 able news seems ai.-o to have lost its •flVct. It must be admitted that the I 'avorable inriuen<-es are sntnewhnt hiiidea and dirflciilt to discover. Clieai money is perhaps the strongest sup!M )rt :it pre.'-'ent nffr)rded tlie market Fundi are abundant at low rate.«; when compared with what good securities n turning, even at present market pilceK. There Is every pro.-^pect that money will remain eheap and abundant for some we»l :.-i to coiiic. The only iinportant sjjcclfic influences af- IV, tin^c the market were the fluctua- ti:-as :n I'nlcn Pacific and the unfavor able rpjjorts cf earnlnsis off.^et on Hit other hand :.y t!ie favorable report." concerning the United States Steel I 'orporation. which showed an inc:ease during: l)ecenil>er of 942.000 tons in unfiMtil, orders. There has been r moderat.' demand for bonds on lanuary investr.'tnt account, though the latter li;!s fallen somewhat below expectation.s nud conditions do not ie^m entirely favoraUie for the further placement of ntw is.sufiR. l.arge in- vc.-tor.-i are holding back either for more favorable oui.side conditions or for better terms. Small investors are feeling.the pinch of the times and as a, rule have Itss money than usual for investment., were conditions more favorable new offer- :ng .-5 would untloiibtedly be put out and taken with more freedom. Investors are wisely insisting upon safety, hence there !s more than ordinary di.scriiiiination in the making of selec tions. but high grade bonds paying sn.all returns are generally neglected In lavor of those offering more liberal results. There is a disposition on the part of those having idle money on hand to invest temporarily in high grade securities in order to keej) theii money employed until business shows symptoms of revival. Thus indirectly. Jull business and idle money act as ;\ partial support to security values. Gen era! trade continues quiet. Collection: are slow, and while conditions are gen era"y considered sound there Is slight expectaiion of any material Im jnovement untJl the political situation is clarified, and the outlook for next season's crops can be somewhat gauged, it may a.>* well be taken for granted that there can be no real' revival in business unless the aounlr) ha.'i a good harvest next season. So far iMniiltlonK are Hatlsfactory and reports Horn the Interior indicate thai throughout the northwest the condl lion of the soil is excellent. The political situation is still tbi chief obstacle to buHliiess improvement. Capital Is undeniably timid coiiridence having been Impaired by the repeated attacks against numerous industilal corporations and threats ui; on others. Our corporaiions can easily adjust themselves to the law when that is understood. They are already adjusting themselves to requirements of the Sherman law, and in many cases that adjustment is already complete. The Sherman law, much as It has displeased some of out industrial magnates has had no such deterrent effect upon business as the repeated attc^miits to oppress corpora lions by unwise restrictions by oppressive taxes and by the mania foi Inveatigations. Capital has been struck right and left, and is consequently sore and timid; hence, enterprise lags, Initiative is checked aiid the number of unemployed increases rather than diminishes. There is nc doubt the country is thoroughly weary of tactics, much of which doubtless practised for iiolitlcal effect upon the Ignorant voter who does not and can not know the evil consequences of such methods. The country needs a period of political resL If let aloni business will quickly adjust itself tc new requirements and obey the law Inquisitorial proceedings Inspired by malice or for political gain should be- strongly discouraged. When given a fair chance business is ready to take a fresh forward movement. Conditions are generally sound because we have had fully a year of liquidation and contraction. For over six months at least, if not longer, business has been conducted upon stricily conservative lines. There' has been no excessive speculation. Although our capacity is greater than consumptive powers, there has been no general over-|produc tlon of manufacturea articles; and th(?re Is no reason, as already said why considerable Improvement should not follow the clearing of the political skies and tbe assurance of good crops.
