Pamela smiled a smile of much wis-

1 a mutter of polite formality, when they
j readied Fifty-ninth street, she asked
i Klleen to come up for lunch from the
I bachelor's buffet in the basement, and
she could not help a slight feeling of
relief at the news that Miss Milyuns
had promised herself elsewhere.
"Hut I'll break away and come for
tea at five, If you'll let me," said Kl-
leen. “I simply must help you try
them all on.”

rive In the nick of time. Tomlinson
brought them into the bedroom, one,

self cut Ihe knots with Mr. Randolph's
best nail-scissors and laid out the
goods, filmy fold upon filmy fold.

As soon as sufficient space had been
cleared for action, the two girls set to
work, and were soon involved in such
an orgy of “trying on” as only the
healthiest stamina of youth could
have endured without falling over in a
dead faint from exhaustion. Even
Eileen divested her person of every-
thing hut, and experimented with such
dear garments as it seemed impossible
Miss Thornton could get round to In
the allotted time.
Having tried to show the public how
charming was Pamela In and without
her cheap clothes, no puerile and gasp-
ing effort will be made In these pages
to measure Ihe effect upon her of the
latest creations of Ihe raiment dream-
gods of Fifth avenue. Suffice It to sny

For two, four, six days, a week, two
weeks, Pamela lived In breathless an-
ticipation of the moment when she
could hurst upon the eyesight of one

out any news of him, her lips that
were made to smile, to kiss, and to

Mr. Milyuns' efforts I11 several direc-
tions had so far proved In vain. He
had advertised In every paper in Goth-
11111. from the New York Epoch to the
pink Police Gazette; he had offered
rewards; he had set traps and was
now supporting n large corps of rap-
idly fattening Individuals who called
themselves “plain-clothes" men—a
name that would have fitted them ad-
mlranly hail the last syllable lieett omit-
ted His net results were the Infor-
mation that Mr Randolph. In n repre-
hensible state nf Intoxication and at
sevpn o'clock of the morning of which
he had disappeared, had exchanged his
swell evening garments at a second*
hand emporium on Sixth avenue for a
suit of thicks sml eighteen dollars In
cash, stating as he left the place, that
he was .hip'Ing of going South for the
test of the winter.

In some of the earliest written his-

THE ROMANCE OF WORDS
q KEYING solely upon the
TV phonetic sound of this ex-
pression, It appears to lie dis-
tinctly profane and r. number of
writers have fallen Into tip! er-
ror of spelling “dam" as If It
were the word derived from the
sutue source us “condem".”
To say that a person or a
tldng is “not worth a tinker's
dam” Is. however, not related
In any manner to profanity, hut
gets its meaning from the fact
that a tinker’s dam was a wall
of dough or soft clay raised
around a spot which u plumber,
in repairing, desired to flood
with solder. The material of
which this dam was made could
he used only once and was then
thrown away as utterly worth-
less. Meanwhile, It hud served
the purpose of stopping or dam-
ming up the molten metal- The
colloquial simile Is, therefore,
derived from this short period
of usefulness and not from any
widespread use of tlie word
"damn” on the part of tinkers or

PART TIME WORK
c-pv HERE are two reasons why part-
1 time work is sought. The first is
that the woman who has her own home
to run cannot be away all day without
serious consequences, particularly if
she is a mother as well ns a wife.
Yet It Is sometimes necessary to have

cupful of milk. Mix all together well

buking dish. Sprinkle with hulf a cup-
ful of cracker crumbs mixed with two
tablespoonfuls of fat. Bake one-half
hour; serve hot with tomato sauce.
One may use a mixture of pecans, wal-
nuts and almonds ground.

good In leftovers, unless great
care is used iu blending them. The
following, though unusual, proved very
good. A cupful or two of veal broth

dish. A baking disli was well greased
with the fat from u piece of steak, also
u smull bit of cold steak was minced

noodles and the Jellied soup, a dish

leftovers) were chopped and added,
and the whole coveted with leftover

and serve from the dish. Add such
seasonings as are needed when arrang-
ing the food In the pan.

The second reason is that the regu-
lar job does not pay enough. This is
often the case with teachers and li-
brarians and other professional work-
ers whose salaries are small, while
the calls upon them are great. They
do not want to give up the special pro-
fessional labor in which they are regu-
larly engaged, yet they must have
Summer jobs are various, from ac-
cepting positions as governess to chil-
dren, or waiting at summe Utiotols, to
filling in at offices where vocations are
cutting down the regular force. A
stenographic summer job can often be
secured in an office for two weeks or
a month, and then another one, and so
on until the vacation season closes.
Some women are successful In taking
parties of young girls or older women
on tourist excursions, charging a good
price for services of this sort.
Lecturing is another good part-time
job. The lectures are planned for
women’s clubs and political assi^a-
tions. To succeed here you must w a
good speaker, nnd have from four to
six lively papers to rend on nny given
subject, or on two or three allied sub-
jects. It Is best to specialize.
Teaching craft work is an excellent
part-time occupation, and so are the
various housekeeping jobs that are
