They have eicursloned into many new fields of labor sincti the beginning of the war. Only the heavles't physical labor --where it la a mere matter of muscular strength unequal to that of men-bars them from measuring their efforts along with the other half of humanity. Just how much of this new industrial territory they will bold, now tbat they have occupied it, remains to be seen. It is reasonable to believe that tbere are many places they will continue to hold. In the meantime there are maW good old-fashioned obligations they must go on fnlGlllng. All tho things they have been, doing they must go on with. Sox and sweaters and all "other knitted things must be mninly supplied by them; clothing and food prepared for their own families and others who need them. Besides the wholesome and hourly duties they undertake to raise money for all sorts of charitable work. For the Red Cross they are having much success along with considerable merriment by getting up "fiestas" or county fairs--held Indoors. All they need to start with is a large room with a fairly ifood floor. This they line with booths and partition off into various "exhibits"--each of them as much of a Joko aa possible. There is a shooting gallery, with the knlscr as a target, the fortune-telling tent--candy and lemonade stands, Jellies, canned fruits, preserves, etc., contributed by the promoters, who solicit It among acquaintances. The things arc sold nt low prices because there Is almost no expense attached where tributes time and materials and the profits are clear. About tho gayest and liveliest crowd at these fairs or "fiestas" is In that portion of the floor set aeide for those who like to dance. This Is rolled or roped off from the rest of the room and a little booth for selling tickets placed nt tho entrance. Little girls j also p«ddle tickets among thj men wb i dance. "Ten centg each and three for a quarter" brings many a dime and dollar borne to the.- treasury of the chapter. Of course the promoters mnst see to it that good music IB provided, War la no reason why the young people should not Indulge themselves in innocent pleasures, 4md they are glad enough to benefit the Hed Cross while they enjoy themselves. /_ _ ^ Bright Colors In Veils. The current demand In veiHngu Is largely restricted to bltick, tuupe and brown in the order enumerated, but according to samples recently received · from French veiling centers, a higher percentage of bright colors can be *x- pected for spring. Novelties featuring two or more colors, such as pold and purple, brown aad gold, rose and preen, rose and purple are all prominently represented In the newest of the French samples.

But above all wa» the dominant fear that it would precipitate chaos in the business world. Yet conditions were never better. The people subscribed for fire billions of bonds and went about paying for them aa if it were an everyday affair. The merchants are breaking record*; the manufacturers are working day and night; the farmers are enjoying record prices; workmen are drawing better pay than in years; prosperity la greater than ever before and buaiBeaa ia haflne no palpitation of the heart whatever. And although the government baan't be«n resorting to tho printing presa methods of some European countries, -there ia just as much money in circulation as ever.

It is,a lesson of co-operation between the home merchant, manufacturer and consumer--an appeal to our community spirit--a plea for us to "get together." A little less Latin and more civic pride should be taught our children. They receive their education through taxation of the home merchant and citizen. No mail order house contributes a mite to thefr welfare. So they are never too young to be shown the folly of sending money away from their home town. Teach your children to respect the hand that feeds them and to honor the town that contributes to their welfare. Teach them that buying away from their home town is a menace to the grqwth of the community in which they live. MORAL:-- A lesson learned early in life is never lost.
