(BY KATHERIXE GLOVER, ) As "Winifred Lawrence came out of the sky-scraper to the street a gust of wind caught her and whirled her about like a resistless leaf. In a way It seemed to express the hopelessness of everything. In that moment all of her troubles came to . ujiiim. ne naa just learned that the last chance of work Bhe h Ji". vJtln: .Y!1 fPr th second it wasn't JE- v. .

Which had withstood everything so far tirred itself and came to her rescue. She smiled broadly into the red face of a puffy old man who looked at her in astonishment, and then bravely trudged on to the elevated station to go home By the time she climbed the steps of the station and the soles of her shoes jegan to feel clammy against her feet the sense of humor had taken onto itself wings and her troubles surged back upon her. She stood waiting on the platform shivering with cold and nervous-aess She felt a sudden animosity toward the persons that passed her. She hated the women that seemed to flaunt prosperity and well-being in her face, and she began estimating the cost of one's furs and thought of the utter absurdity of a gold purse that swung from another's wrist, representing what a month's salary would do to Winifred. "I wonder how many such trinkets shed have if f-he had to earn them for herself," she thought, as the owner of the purse pushed her way ahead of her Into the car. It was but one more Btraw .hat she had to swing to a strap while she saw a fat porpoise of a man plump into the only seat and spread his paper in front of him with satisfied air. A diabolical desire came upon her to aim the point of her umbrella at his placid, rounded front, but she did nothing more lesperate than to step on his foot with emphasis as the train swung around a curve and to pretend not to see his scdwl. As she trudged the three blocks from the station to her room she determined on her course of action. She had exactly one dollar and seventy-five cents in the i worm, vvitn soventy-nve of it she would buy Fuzzy-Wuzry a tube of rose madder paim. i' uzzy- uzzy lived on the top He wrote soas advertisement in I noui . the day and studied Illustrating at nleht I and was the only person that reauv 1 cared.

Twenty-five cents she would appropriate to heWeifT with ten of it to buy an ice crearn solaa i . oV,.-. ......1.1 ,.,.-.. rri'iinwti..o I and the other fifteen a grape fruit, be- cause those two things at the present moment stood for luxury to her. And with the other twenty-five she supposed something could be purchased to ring down the curtain, ot course, sne would be economical and just turn on the gas but she fancied that made one all black and horrid, and she had an objection to Fuzzy-Wuzzy s but she shuddered and would not follow out the thought. By the tin e she climbed to the top of tne :hree flights of steps and reached her wn door she had every detail of her )lan arranged and she took a bit of pride and comfort in it. . Even the two cents she had set aside for the wir- ;ha9t of a stamp to write particulars to her old doctor .juardian in the far-off viilaee she iad come from.

Oh what a teast gutted Here Is the newest mode cut In separate coats, although it can bo made of the same- material as the skirt and be incorported into the costume. Stripes, linens, pongees, zephyrs and cloths all look well fashioned after the model and the trimmings are of the rimpleat possible kind. Much yes.almost everythmg1 depends upon the at of the coat and the way it is finished. The platron front Is rather difficult to accomplish, especially as the sleeve is made in one with the coat. The neck Is finished with a turn-over collar, but sometimes has only' a flat stitching of silk or braid, over which a fancy collar of lace, embroidered linen or silk Is laid. The undersleeves and full length, finished with cuffs of black style trimmed with braid. ! A stunning hat goes with the coat, beir.g of very fine straw in dark blue, tri.nmed wim an owl's head, from which spring-like beautiful fountain sprays, fine aigrette plumes. The buttons are of white crochet, than which there is no more fashionable trimming just now. CoatE made of taffetas on this model are very smart and dressy, and when very elaborate effects are deeired, they trim them all around with handsome lace, Joining the seams together with the cerae material. I OLLA PODRIDA Blessings upon the- person who has tact. It Is better tnan money, in fact, it Is better than any other one attribute, for it means a whole lot or them together. Tact can be acquired.

Honest, ffiock Qoat. one fault, yet this one fault can do more harm than all the other, qualities can offset. Social life is a complex thing. It demands the oil of tact courtesy to keep it going without great friction. The poor mechanic oils up after he finds that he has a hot-box. The good mechanic oils up and prevents a hot-box. And it is not so easy to oil the social hot-box. It demands explanations and they are like apologies, they leave a doubt In the mind that lingers like a shadow. This is why I say that it is better to be tactful than to be rich. The tactful person is rich rich in the admiration of all her friends, and more than likely rich in this world's goods, also. Bluntness may be honesty, but it is wretchedly crude. It is not always a sign of honesty either. Some people affect bluntness because they are naturally too surly to be courteous. It pays to be tactful, and every person may become so by keeping at it. The tactful person shows that she regards the feelings of others above tier own. That la the secret of success, not only in social planes, but in the business world as well. Think, of the feelings of the other person at all times, and you are as absolutely sure, J as you can be sure of anything in this world, that you are going to please that person. The tactless and the blunt-spoken people may both be honest, but they are also both selfish, otherwise they would not be so. ALICE BENEDICT. BO IT YOURSELF. Depending on others is like a cake minus bakinjj powder; you can always count on a fall down. The girl who does It herself need never lose beauty sleep wondering if it be done. As well put faith In the weather with invitations out for a garden party as to feel dead certain of others doing that promised task. What you do for yourself may not be well done, but, at least, you are off the anxious bench. As well count on the unboned lace collar to cling back of the ears as get the dependent habit. Knowing how to do things yourself and doing them makes you- as indif ferent to the whims of others as a dead beat to debts. THE "MITTEN" WASH CLOTH. Very sensible for use in the bath is a" mitten crocheted of white darning cotton. The hand slips into it easily, and many people who have used them prefer them to any other kind of wash cloth.

Dear Miss Carew: My friends are all much richer than I. and I am constantly Invited by them to different entertainments, social affairs, etc.; favors which I cannot afford to reciprocate. This almost spoils the pleasure they mean to give me. Do you think I should allow myself to be placed under obligations for which I cannot make adequate return? J. K. I think you are a very fortunate girl to have such kind friends and to have your company so desirable, and I certainly think it would be very foolish if you allowed a false sense of pride to interfere with the enjoyment your friends mean to give you. No doubt they find your companionship ample reward for any expense they incur in your entertainment, for people do not extend constant invitations through charitable Impulses. Rest assured that tlyre is always "value received" either through your wit, musical or other accomplishments, or you are the happy possessor of a personal magnetism which makes your presence an added pleasure, Xylographer. Dear Miss Carew: What is a xylographer? Please tell me. M. C. A xylographer Is an wood. engraver on For a Fever Blister.

The blister will disappear as if by magic. Sudden Deafness and. Its Cause. Dear Miss Carew: For the past couple of weeks I have had much difficulty in hearing and am much alarmed. Previous to this I never had any srmptoms of deafness. Do you think it is serious? S. G. P. No, I think that probably there is an accumulation of wax in the external opening of the ear. This wax is secreted by tiny glands and serves to protect the ear from Insects and to catch the tiny cast-off skin particles. Sometimes sudden deafness is caused by the introduction of water into the ear. The water swells the wax and causes the obstruction. Inserting the finger or other objects into the ear is responsible in other cases, as such attempts to cleanse the passage fre The Enquirer No woman who performs light work around the home considers her wardrobe complete ur.til a good supply of neat and comfortable kitchen aprons has been added. It Is a necessary accessory if one is to look neat and clean, and besides it saves much expense of cleaning as well as worry. The model illustrated is pa-ticularly pleasing with the long graceful lines occasioned by th COMFORTABLE front breadth and bib cut In one piece. It is easy to adjust, therefore will be favored by he majority. It requires a small 6 mount of material and is easilr made, which fact is another good point in its favor.

It is a. ways better to take such cases in tiire. as a trivial matter often becomes serious when neglected. Blackhead Lotion. Dear Miss Carew : I should be very grateful if you would tell me of some lotion which would aid in getting rid of blackheads. S. P. D. The following lotion is excellent for removing blackheads: One drachm each of carbonate of magnesia and zinc oxide, four ounces of rosewater. This should be shaken and mopped on the spots. Later the worm, which is the thickened contents of a tiny oil tube in the skin, may be pressed out after the facial ports have been opened by steaming. Then apply a little cold cream. Books for Children. Dear Miss Carew: Will you please give me a list of books suitable for children? MOTHER. You do not say what age the children are. and that would make a great difference, you know. It would occupy a great deal of space to give a list worth while and then would not be as satisfactory" as the list you would receive upon applying at the Public Library. To Remove Insects. Dear Miss Carew: I have some lovely palms and other plants, but a few of them are infected by scale. As I have never had much experience in the floral line I am at a loss what to do. Possibly you can help me. I should be most grateful if you could. W. C. V. One of the best ways to clean plants of insects and scale is to make a suds of warm water and some good soap. only moderately" strong if the foliage be delicate. With a soft brush dipped in the suds, go over all the leaves and allow to remain on for a short time. Then rinse thoroughly in warm water. Flank Steak.

The social climber has been an object of co mi passion ever since fortunes became so common that education was not deemed of much Importance. Money has opened the door of society to many a family that knew nothing of the observances of polite society tlU they were ready to knock, for admission Clever women have turned out beautifully, but the owners of dulled brains have turned Into snobs who forgot the friends of their bumble days and even tried to forget that thera ever were humble days. In London one of the favorites of society is a beautiful woman whose husband became possessed of great and sudden wealth. She waa clever, remarkably so, for she knew better than to try to bury the past lived In a rough mining camp. On the other hand she has boasted of It on various occasions and told fascinating stories of her hardships. Society has simply revelled in her frankness, first because it is novel, a little, perhaps, because she is young, beautiful, rich and sweet-tempered. She never knocked at the door to the social world she never had to do it. tor the door was wide open and there were beckoning fingers which she could see far down in her humble little life She has learned a good deal and is an ornament to the world of fashion which adopted her.

To all pretentious social functions on shipboard she was Invited as a matter of course, with the privilege of taking her friends, but there were numerous small affairs out of which she might easily hava been shut, but never was. In less than a week she began to receive attentions from women who had never seen her before, apparently, and these she promptly paid In the manner they hoped rpleasant affairs la which naval officers and their wives were conspicuous. It was pleasant while it lasted, these luncheons, breakfasts and drives), and they lasted just as long as the squadron remained In. the harbor. Then she was dropped with a suddenness that dazed her, but which taught her to weigh matters a little more carefully and to suspect friendships of a mushroom growth. She has met them since, but they have not troubled her to any extent. BETTY BRADEEN. FRENCH CHALK FOB. SPOTS.
