DOING WORK AT ONCE AND WELL What an unfortunate way some people have of putting off their work and leaving until tomorrow what should be done today, says the Christian Science Monitor, and how much harder those who do so make their work. The housewife who puts off mending the little tear finds tomorrow that It has reached the proportion of a lona: one. If one's work is worth doing at all. It is worth do-injr Just as well as It can be done, and If a woman's Interest Is in her work she will take pleasure In doing It well and at Its1 proper time. Circumstances sometimes prevent, hut they cannot make It the custom to delay. Whether it Is a button to bo sewed on, the visit that will give pleasure to another, the letter that should be written or the semi-annual house cleaning, there is the right time for all these duties, and if they are not done until a few days after they should have been the delay detracts in a measure from what the result should have been. It is the many interruptions which make the housewife's work hard, and the wise woman who starts her work early in the morning will avoid many of the?e and find how much time she has later in the day to do just as sha pleases. It is not. necessary to slight work to do it quickly, but if everything is kept up each day as it should be it relieves one of many of the hard days which housekeepers complain of. If garments are hung on their proper hooks in the closet each time, it does away with the frequent cleanings and rearrangements which these receptacles are notorious for demanding. The same comment applies to the drawers of the dresser or chiffonier and in fact to almost every part of housework. What should he done today Is never more than what can be done today; there re often many thlns that we should like to do, but they are not really necessary unless there is the time to do them. The extra time spent in making fancy frostings for cakes is an unwise waste of time if this is done at the expense of putting off more important work. The wise housekeeper and the one who does her work the easiest and best is the one who us her best Judgment to decide what part of her housework is really worth while, what may be put aside until another time and what things are so important that they will not permit of putting off.

Mies Sears got her firs start in a department store, being rewarded with a position as cash girl by the proprietor for the best prize composition on the opening of the flora. She soon was advanced to the position of saleslady, and then manifested a great desire to write. It so happened that the proprietor of the department store (1 A. Sherman) also owned the local newspaper, and he agreed to allow her to change from the position of saleslady to that of reporter, giving her seven instead of five dollars a week, ltefers to Port Huron "We learn her maiden name from a programme of the Port Huron Musical Society, which gave three performances of the dramatic cantata, "Ksther," in the City Opera House, on June 11. 12 and IS. 1SS9, Zelda Paldi appearing in two roles ab and as the Second Maid of Honor. "Soon afterward Miss Paldi, for that was her name then, left Port Huron for Detroit, but found nothing to do there and went on to Chicago, where things seemed hopeless until she managed to attract the attention of the newspaper editors with a hu morous story on learning to ride a bicycle. Later, she set out for New York with letters to theatrical managers, but was told that they "had no Bladder Irritations, kidney troubles, dull headaches, weariness, pain in back and sicHrS.all show the kidneys need to be toned up. strengthened, their regular nction restored.
