Whatever we do, a good deal' of charity'is going to be'necessary, the coming 'winter. Most folks would rather work than take charity.

For. two years he telvcd in the Mediterranean and on llw South American . coast, Though he learned to speak and write French ivllh fluency in youth, he knew hardly a word of English when he came to Lowestoft, England, and qualified as able seaman on a coasting vessel.

Pin money A Five-cent Paper of pins as a wedding gift would now be considered bizarre and the donor "tight," to express it mildly. Yet pins were once so scarce that none but the wealthy could afford them. A box of pins was the ne plus ultra of 'wedding presents, as much admired as costly jewelry and silverware. . As pins became less expensive and in more common _ use, women were provided with a certain amount of ' money to be devoted exclusively to the purchase of pins. And so the expression "pin money," was origin- ' ated. The phrase now has a much broader meaning and denotes any allowance to wife or. daughters for personal and incidental expenses. Pin money now buys a thousand and one things dear to the hearts of womenfolk. The advertising columns are scanned eage*rly by millions of women to see what is offered that comes within purse limits. 'They know that the advertisements enable them to buy wanted articles at reasonable cost: Advertising also keeps them informed of the latest newsjn.the world of fashion. It tells what Paris' is wearing in«dresses, hats, hosiery and footwear. It pictures gowns for evening, afternoon and street wear, as well as simple little house frocks that are charming ill their simplicity. Advertising introduces improved household utensils, new foods, automobiles in gay colors—in short, everything that the heart of woman could desire. And that is why women are such careful readers of .advertising. It enables them to make their pin money buy more and last longer. It helps them keep exp'cnsc's within the household budget. Every one should read advertisements.
