The main buplxar now In thp way

SCHOOL GIRL IS AN
DESIGNS OWN HATS
What a Girl Can Become"
Don't girls realize that millinery
is a tine art useful in the home as
well as in the shop?
Talking with a milliner recently
the writer was astonished to learn
that girls who care to learn mil-
rinery seem as scarce as the pro-
verbial hen teeth.
Shops these days are ever on the
lookout for wideawake girls who
are suited to hat making or bat
selling. True it may be the low
salary offered beginners that keeps
applicants away but any girl if
she has any ability at all can raise
her salary if she wants to.
One young high school lady that
X know a sophomore works in a
millinery shop after school every-
day. She is to take an all-day posi-
tion when summer vacation starts.
Another girl a year or so young-
er than the first is learning some-
thing about millinery by making
most of her own bonnets at home.
Not only is she getting pointers
about the work she. intends to do
when she leaves school but she is
saving herself quite a good deal of
The possibilities for girls in mil-
linery are unlimited. The girl with
natural ability to design and create
and with initiative may some time
own a shop of her own. She may
secure a position with a large de-
partment store or millinery shop a
hat buyer or head designer.
Nearly every successful milliner
is not only a good artist but a
good business woman. She is well-
dressed neat courteous and keeps
in touch with all the latest develop-
ments in her line.
Experience as a saleslady is good.
The girl who knows how to mako
liats generally makes a better sales-
lady than the one who does not.
But even though you have no in-
tention of ever becoming a profes-
sional milliner you can be an am-
ateur and make your own hats like
mv girl friend does.

January 13 1865. Before he was

to win him fame as an orator.

THE IDEAL WORKMAN
SUBJECT OF MORNING
SERMON DR. DAVIDSON
A large audience ut the Broadway
Buptist church Sunday morning heard
Dr. R. Ij. Davidson the pastor speak
on "The Ideal Workman" from the text
"I muct work the works of Hirr that
sent me while it is duy; the night Com-
eth when no roan van work." He said
"Religion with Christ was a personal
matter. In speaking of hid responsibil-
ity to God he did not say we but I
must work the works of Him that sent
merit. Service was also a personal mat-
ter with Him. Some men carry their
religion in their wife's name. The wo-
man that does all the praying and giving
and going to church for her husband
will go to heaven for him. Cod does not
deal with us in the aggregate but us
individuals. Everyone must give an ac
count of himself to God. It is not suf
ficient to belong to a church that Is ac-
complishing great things. I must do my
part to share in the reward.
The Compulsion of Ixtve
"There ure two kinds of musts In our
lives. There is the unwelcome necessity
which grips us with iron and sharpened
fangs; the needs-be which crushes down
hopes and dreams and inclinations and
forees the slave to his reluctant task.
And there is the must which has passed
Into the will into the (heart and has
molded the inmost desire to conformity
with the obligation which no more
stands over against us as a taskmaker
with whip and chain but has passed
within us and is there an Inspiration and
a joy. He that can say as J ecus Christ
In His humanity could sly my meat is
to do the will of Him that sent me that
man and that man alone feels no pres-
sure that Is pain from the Incumbency
of the necessity that rules ids life.
Necessity of Works
"Christ's life was a busy life. He said
I must work. Every man is under a
divine command to work with no di-
vine permission to loaf. In the sweat of
thy face shall thoui eat bread is the
word of Almighty God. Under this di-
vine command no man can cacao? ihls
duty to work without violating God's
law. We need to get the vicious idea
out of our philosophy that work is
drudgery. A loafer Is a blight on God's
creation and a burden and curse on his
fellow men. A religious loafer has no
more place In God's creation than an
industrial loafer. He Is a slacker In the
hour of the world's great need.
A Divine Program
"Jesus Uid nothing except that was
his duty to do. He followed the divine
program. AVhen a philosopher painter.
Inventor author orator financier
statesman he would have made. But lie
did nothing except what was his duty.
He was not a broad man. He said. I
have a work to do and how 1 am straigh-
tened until It Is accomplished. It is not
breadth that men need but depth God
hoN u progrum for every lifo und the
highest success can be achieved only by
following that program.
Brevity of Time
"The night cotneth when no man can
work. Life Is brief its work must be
done on schedule time or else remain
forever undone. Christ left no unfin-
ished task. On the cross Just before
he yielded up his life He cried it is
finished. As Raul faced death he said I
have finished my course. Happy is that
man who can say as he faces death
I have finished my life's work."
TWO DISTINCT PLANS FORM
TO SETTLE RAIL TKOI BLE
Washington April !0 President
Harding has before him two (separate
und distinct proposals for the settle
ment of the dispute between the rail-
roads and their employes. One propo-
sition that from S.' Davie Wurfleld
und Darwin P. Kingsley representing
security owners is that he use his good
offices to bring ubout regional confer
ences between representatives of the
carriers andthelr men. The other sub-
mitted by R. M. Jewell on behalf of
the five railroad mccluinicul unions is
he bring ubout a general confer-
i .. -...r;..l.l nl Mr. Kingley rx llivc
that one outcome "f the conferences
thev have suggested would be the for-
mation of u regnioiml railway board i"
each of the four groups into which tho
carriers luive been constituted by the
Interstate t 'omrnerce Commission.
Such hoards. It Is explained would be
composed of representatives in equal
numbers of the railroads arid the men.
To them would be referred disputes
which could not be adjusted by direct
negotiation between the carriers' man-
agers and the employes. Should the
regional board fall to adjust the dif-
ferences the disputed points would go
to the railroad labor board at Chicago.

"Why can't you behtvt yourself ?"
Metryjtne asked Tommy T'Ppetov
Mary Jane and
Tommy Tippetoe the Mouse
TOMMY TIPPETOE was a little
brownmousethatlived behind the
wall of the kitchen cupboard in Mary
Jane's house. Mary Jane's mother
scolded Tommy Tippetoe often es-
pecially when he would eat a big piece
out of the cake or nibble the cheese.
But he always kept coming around.
One day Mary Jane's mother said to
TommieTippetoe; "Now listen to me.
You and I are going to be very bad
friends if you don't turn over a new
leaf and quit bothering folks. Why
can't you behave yourself?"
Tommy got pretty red in the face
and he curled his tail up. But finally
he said "111 tell you what 111 do. You
give me a can of that delicious Mary
Jane Syrup all for myself and 111 take
it away out in the woods and won't
ever bother you again."
And Mary Jane's Mother did and
he went away. So everybody is happy
now. And they have Mary Jane Syrup
with their waffles pancakes and corn
bread and bread and butter every day
And sometimes Mary Jane and the
girls have the greatest fun making
