Tim Art of Hpniiillng Money,
Many women fritter away a ureal dcnl
of money lu buying things that they do
not need simply because they tiro cheap.
They will buy two cheap gowns Instead of
one good one, which is tho poorest sort of
economy. What Is of no use to you Is an
extravagance, no matter how little It may
cost. Wise women make up their inlnils
whnt they uetsl before they start out on it
shopping expedition ami purchase goods to
meet that need. After looking through
tho shops they often select something dif
ferent from what they Unit Intended, lie
cause they llud it is better suited to their
purpose, or that it will Iw dlfllcult to net
exactly whnt they had planned.
It Is always best.to make out n shopplu ;
list, with tho limit of price which you In
tend to pay opposite each article, and keen
yourself. If possible, within this limit.
The value of keeping a (H'tty cash account
book lu which every Item is set down and
balanced with the amount of money re
ceived nt the bottom of every set of jmjjeM
cannot botes) highly commended. It keeps
expenses within bounds and Is useful to the
housekeeper lu estimating tho value of ur
tlclesshe intends purchasing. It shows how
long the goods and clothing have lasted
and many other things which the mothur
oauuot keep in her memory. Uostou Traveller.
Tli Girl with an Ideal. -Among
tho long list of girt who per
haps do not deserve the distinction of n
whole species Is tho girl who goes about
always looking for her Ideal. Kvery man
ahe meets Is n possible lover until site hiu
aired him up and measured him by the lit
tle rule of hers, to see if he conforms to thu
Mandanl which she haa determined upon
in her own mind. Her latest woman friend
must lie thu receptacle for all the woch,
hopes, fears, plans and aspirations of tin;
confiding girl. Of course sho hates the
woman friend as soonns she has discovered
faults, like tho rest of womankind.
Hut tho girl with an ideal is bound to
hare that tjleal shattered sooner or later,
and for awhile she will be sad and down
cast la-cause the world Is not what she had
hoped It was. Her Idols all stop down from
their pedestals one by one and walk away,
but the idealist always knows that there
Is an Ideal friend, uu Ideal lover, waiting
for her somewhere.
The girl with a fad is an interesting per
son as n study fit any rate. She cannot b
properly classed with Ithe glrl.wlth a the
ory, for she I rarely aerloua enough. It l.i
noticeable that the girl with a fad changes
her f ad as often as anything new atrikca her
fancy. New York Commercial Advertiser.

- It is pretty well understood, nowadays,
that Amorican railways, speaking goner
ally, aro not ran at a profit. Thu causes
for this state of nffulrs are many, but the
best reason of all is that thero are too
Think a minute and call to mind, if
you can, any two cities, important cities,
that aro within UOO or 400 miles of en -li
other that have not at least three en
uecting lines. Competition for trui.lc.
both freight und passenger, is necessarily
keen; bo keen in fact that tho narrn.v
margin between tho figure representing
tho actual cost of transport nnd that nil
witting of u fair profit is ruthlessly
wiped out. Tho public constantly do-
mnnds improvements and tho road that
meets its demands getsits patronage, but
sometimes nt what it cost!
Operating expenses lie they over so
carefully supervised aro enormous.
Rails wear out or becomo too light for
tho rigid requirements of modern usage:
bridges g'et shaky and need repairs:
fences are blown down; collisions occur:
floods sweep out of existence a dozen
miles of track; trainmen, sectiontuuti,
telegraph operators and clerks constantly
cry for higher wages and must somehow
or other be appeased: now equipment
must bo provided; new station building
erected. And so it goes.
Happy Is tho road that in this modern
nge does not find itself every year or two
in a receiver's hands!
Amid all stand the officials. Thoy
aro between two grindstones. On tho
one side nro tho shareholders who think,
or imagine, thoy think, thoy seo ruinous
extravagance; on tho other, aro the em
ployees who know how hard thoir work
is and cannot understand why their ser
vices nro not moro fittingly recognized.
Of nil classes of men tho railway offi
cial Is tho most improvident. Ono would
think thnt, knowing as ho must tho
frightful uncertainty of his position, he
would feel tho necessity for providing
for a rainy day. But he doesn't provide.
Living in tho full blazo of publicity the
very nature of the post ho holds seems
to bo too much for him; lie's ouly liu

Tlio genenl manager of a railroad
