THE RENT COLLECTOR
R .vr collecting Ir a branch of the
••eal estate work that appeals to
..May vounp "omen who ure iuterest-
fd in housing problems, and several
such have entered 't from settlement
work. The landlords find that women
make better rent <ollec:ors iban men,
that they net closer to I be tenants,
and tint tbev promote a better under-
standing b iveeti 1 lu parties to the
Kent collecting Is not a mere turn-
ing up at the first of the month with
the demand for lb*' rent !• Is to the
Interest of the landlord that the
houses he owns be proper!,? run and
kept up. that undesirable tenants be
ejected, and Ilia' the right kind get
rlrht treatment. Women are good at
getting results In the<e directions. It
Is usually the woman <>f the apartment
who pays the rent ; it Is she who has
complaints to make <■! Alterations to
demand. And she speaks more freely
to another woman and the other
woman understands better the usual
problems of housekeeping. It works
well both way8.
A rent collector Is In a position to
know more than most persons about
vacant apartments, various types of
retrers. possibilities of development,
bargains. There are really fine busi-
ness opportunities In this line, and
women should study them.
After all. it Is women who live In
the home and who ninnatre the borne.
When it comes to homes, women make
the better agents :ind better rent col-
lectors, and women are entering tht
new field with enthusiasm.

His always been that she came from
the Latin virgo. meaning "a virgin."
I ideed, the first instance of tier use
in England was in the time of Queen
Elizabeth when Sir Walter Kaleigh,
i uned his American colony Virginia
in honor « f the Virgin Queen.
It was under a similar belief that
iiernadln de St. Pierre called the hero-
ine of his tropica! Arcadian romance,
Virginle. The widespread (sipularity
of this story in Kneland, France and
Germany brought Virginia into enor-
mous vogue throughout Knrope.
France still adores her Vlrginh\ and
her popularity in I'nglaml is assured
forever out of sentimental memory of
the famous queen.
The first American colony estab-
lished the name in this country. Like-
wise the first white child born on
American soil ami named Virginia
Pare did much to spread its vogue.
The South has alwayu abounded in
Virginias, which unfortunately has
been contracted to unmusical "Virgies"

KIMBERLEY was going back. The farmers were
disgruntled. They said they couldn't eke a living
ironi the rocky soil.
And all the time, their ragged youngsters were
playing with diamonds!
But the farmers didn't know. Many of them died
poor. They thought the priceless gems were pebbles.
Some folks are just like those Kimberley farmers.
They seek opportunity in some distant place and overlook
the wealth that is daily within their grasp.
Advertising is a diamond mine of opportunity. It
