HAPPINESS A BY-PRODUCT
From Adventures In Contentment
by David Grayson.
Happiness, I have disbovored.
Is nearly always a rebound from
hard work. It Is one of the fol
lies of men to imagine that they
can enjoy mere thought, or emo
tion, or sentiment. As well try
to eat beauty! For happiness
must be tricked! She loves to
see men at work. She loves
sweat, weariness, self-sacrifice.
She will be found, not in palaces,
but lurking in cornfields and fac
tories and hovering over littered
desks. She crowns the uncon
scious head of the busy child.
If you look up suddenly from hard
work you will see her, but if you
look too long she fades sorrow
BY ARTHUR BRISBANE
It is all right *to die quietly, but

If a farmer works all his life with
nothing to show for it, he ought to

of everything worth while. There

There was unrest when the tea went
overboard in Boston harbor. Dis

Boys Do Not Realize Bad Bargain in
Catering to Taste for Dissipation
From the Omaha Bee.
“Omaha is just a wide place in the road,” jauntily declares a
boy of 20, who has confessed to a long series of burglaries. ‘‘We
will be out in eight or nine years.”
Perhaps even before that. In the meantime, he will be kept on a
road that has wide spots, not even as wide as Omaha. The path
down which his feet will wander during the eight or nine years lie
looks forward to will take him from the cell house to the mess hall,
to the workshop and back to his ccllhouse. It will be “stepping/
but not the sort he says he spent from $30 to $100 a night on. Ho
will learn a new step. Instead of the “one-step” it will be the
“four-step”—from one end of his short cell to the other, two steps
each way, four for the round trip.
He was out of a job and had a “disgust.” So did his partner,
and they stole money to spend on dissipation. Out of the burglar
ies they may have received several hundred dollars each, certainly
not as much ns $1,000. In the eight years they expect to spend at
Lincoln, if paid laborer’s wages only, they would earn $14,000
each. On the scale of a union musician, they would earn more
than $20,000 each.
Looks like a pretty high price to pay for a few nights of “step
ping,” doesn’t it! From 20 to 28, the glorious years of youth,
that should be filled with the joys of discovering each day a new
delight in the world, will be spent in prison. Instead of the won
ders of new experience with each rising of the sun, there will be the
monotonous repetition of a dull routine. Broom-making, maybe, or
something as inspiring. No wanderlust will be gratified. No smart
“girls,” who think a man should be lavish to the point of reckless
ness with his money will enliven their leisure hours. Sundown will
find them “at home” in a cell, and 4 in the morning will find them
asleep. ... , .
Eight vears of regular habits, with no dissipations, may breed in
them a wild desire to “step” even harder. More likely, though,
long before that time has elapsed they will realize how hollow
and empty the excitement they sought, and how all out of propor
tion is the price they are paying. For with it goes that which can
not be bought with money, a good Yiame.
If the law went to limit of Mosaic justice, they would be requir
ed in addition to make whole the loss of those from whom they
stole to get money to waste in profligate pursuit of disreputable
pleasure. That would make the lesson complete for them.

Where Fashions Come From.
From Harvard Business Review.
For women's wearing apparel most
of the styles originate in Paris. The
couturiers of Paris are referred to
generally a3 the dictators of fashion.
As a matter of fact, they could mors
accurately bo described as persons
engaged In trying to build a reputa
tion as stylo leaders by drawing from
all sorts of sources Ideas with which
they hope to catch the public fancy.
Back of the couturiers are tho de
signers of fabrics, laces, embroi
deries, trimmings and other dress
parts. It Is an important part of tho
couturler'3 task to know what these
designers are doing and to work with
them In the development of new
colors or new effects. The couturiers
are thus assemblers of existing new
creations as well as designers on
their own account.
Their designs are bnsed on cur
rent waves of popular Interest—a
color scheme from Egypt, some new
or revived Idea in draping or In fabric
or In decoration based on some pop
ular interest likely to prove attrac
tive by the time large scale produc
tion can be made effective.
It should be made plain that these
creators of fashions really have two
separate purposes In mind. One pur
pose Is to establish and maintain a
reputation as original and dominating
creators; the other is to make a
Un ited number of garments to be

prices. It should be remembered,
however, that even at these price
levels the business Is sharply com
The Ideal Office Girl
From The Detroit News.
Here arc the ideas of several em
ployers in Detroit, about what con
stitutes an ideal office girl;
"She must be able to keep her
"Must not waste time In talking.
"Should dress neatly.’*
"Never saw an ideal office girl.
I never hire a pretty girl. I never
hire a homely one. I take ’em me
dium. I pick ’em for common sense—
when I can!"
But the office girls have some
thing to say about the ideal boss.
A few of the qualifications are:
“The boss one can t put anything
“Dike them good looking."
"Don’t like the golf fun who goes
out every afternoon and leaves the
office girl to alibi for ntm the rest
of the day to his wife and his clients."
It's fifty-fifty on the boss wno
swears. Some like him; others don t.
“Don’t like a moody boss."
“Dike them to remember that em
ployes are human."
A summary of qualifications rot
