Second Annual Fashion Week
Barring Sundays and Holidays, the merchant meets his custom-
ers three hundred and some odd days every year, each time in the
role of SALESMAN. For a price within reason he sells them mer-
chandise, treats them as a gentleman should during the transaction,
and bids them pleasantly to "come in again" when they depart with
On the opening evening of Fashion Week, however, when the
veils arc dropped from his beautiful windows, and his store thrown
open to the visitors, he drops his salesman's cloak, and stands arrayed
in a genial, happy manner befitting the perfect host; this being sup-
plemented. of course, by carefully arranged wearing apparel of most
modern design suited to sex and condition in life.
His guests are greeted most kindly, lie invites tliem to the
freedom of his store. He sells them nothing, lie urges them to pass
inspection upon his merchandise, and by the judgment which he has
exercised in purchasing it for his consumers, he challenges their
comments. And to be really frank, he expects an occasional com-

If you find any merchant to be a little bit bashful, slap him on
the back and tell him where you're from ; maybe you'll find he came
from the same town you did, and you'll become really good friends
and (this is in a whisper) sometime in the future you may do a l"t
of business together and be glad you met each other.
And look sharp about you!
There will be certain stunts designed bv certain merchants to
especially entertain their guests (secrets which can't be let out as
yet); then there will be additional great attractions planned for the
entertainment of the ntire crowd on the streets.
You will be delighted! You will meet jolly good people, hear
some mighty good music, and go home refreshed for vour evening's

Why I Attend Church

God's temple and And peacf. because the Instinct of worship is in the heart
of man and the church is the temple of the living God
I go to church because I lind peace there, that peace which De Quincy
described as a resting from human labors, a Sabbath of repose, a respite
granted from the secret burdens of the heart, as if I stood at a distance and
aloof front the uproar of lifef as if the tumult and fever and strife were sus-
pended; as if there brooded over me a dovelike and halcyon calm.
I go (o church because I love the music that 1 hear there, the mightv roll
of the great organ, mingled withe the marvelous symphonies of that divine
stringed instrument, the human voice, untwisting all the chains that tie the
hidden soul of harmony.
1 go to church because 1 delight to hear the teachings of the preacher,
whose soul is dedicated to God, whose field is as wide as God's universe,
whose theme is the destiny of man, and whose words are the />racles of Fate.
Marvelous is the spell of the preacher to whom God has given genius and
consecration and the power of illustration drawn from the old. sacred, im
mortal Hook, and from the miracles of nature, no less revealed in the crimson
tipped flower turned up by the plowshare of Robert Burns upon the soil of
Ayr than In the long reaches of the star-girt skies.
1 go to church because "the way is dark and I am far from home," and
because the church is the polar star to light my pathway in the rayless night.
I go to church because the church ministers not only to the spiritual-hut
also to the material needs of life, and because it is there that the charities
that soothe and heal and bless are scattered at the feet of man like flowers.
I go to church because in that atmosphere vice and crime wither and die.
1 go to church because 1 hear the teachings of the philosophy of .testis,
the Incomparable man; and If you say his teaching is philosophy and not
religion and that he was a man and not a god, then the philosophy of that
man has redeemed the world from savagery and blessed mankind with
Christian civilization, and. to my mind, it is a thing worth while to hear.
1 go to church because 1 find there consolation and hope; because 1 see
there the (lawn and not the sunset; and it is better for man. if the hope is
baseless and the vision but an elusive phantom, to cherish a dream so glor-
ious and beautiful than to be weighted down and crushed with the quarried
mountains of a world without hope and without God.

to her reputation of flitting gayly from one of life's sweets to another is
finding little real rest and relaxation in her summer vacation.
The real vacation is the vacation unusual—the vacation in which you
get away from yourself.
For a housewife a trip to a nearby place of interest in the winter
is of;en more of a relaxation than the familv outing in the summer. A
week passed in a big citv. where she can shop, go to theater, opera and
hotels and sightsee to her heart's content—taking it for granted, of course,
that she is from a small town—or a short summer boat trip, when she

country mountain or seaside hotel very pleasant. The other vacationers
most of them, are staying for the month or the season. By the time she
lias got over feeling herself a newcomer and is just beginning to make
acquaintances she must return to werk.
A visit to a fricud is often pleasant, although, as she has onh
two weeks out of the fifty-two in which to follow her own will, she must
choose her hostess carefully. A vacation passed amid unpleasant surround
•ing is a vacation wasted.
The business woman, if she lives at home, generally unconscioush
ftakes household cares on her shoulders if she spends the vacation at hei
own home. She likes the household cares, doubtless; she is tempted tf
unend a little and sew a little and make a few desserts and "putter about.*'
Perhaps she enjoys her vacation, but she does not get all the benefit
ffrom it that she should if she passes it in this way, for she does not get

One tenant said that if his landlord
would not furnish the cement for the
construction of a pit silo, he would
endeavor to obtain a five-year lease
on the farm and construct one himself.
Failing in that, he said, he would dig
the pit on the farm and put in the
silage without the cement coating.
