Gail Hamilton, while one of the most
trenchant critics of manners and perhaps
a bit of a scold, is nevertheless a womanly
woman, with 11 noblo respect for true
womanliness and a fine scorn of every
thing little and low and mean. Wllduess,
she declares, Is n thing which girls cannot
afford. Delicacy is u thing which cannot
be lost or found. No art can restore the
grapo Its bloom. Familiarity without con

all that makes woman exulting and en

NiiiiiIiib tlm llnliy.
There Is less enre taken In selecting a
nainu for the baby than in bestowing a
sultablu cognomen on thu pet dog of a fain
liy, tradition supplying tho dog with a eel
of names from which to choose, wlillu poor
baby Is left to thu Imagluativo selection of
its friends. A nainu that will sound well
on a grown man or woman Is seldom
chosen. It must bu tlm "itsey tootsey"
kind of a handle that II ts thu pink bit of
humanity just prospecting for n claim In
the world. Consequently It Is customary
to meet tall, majestic women who am ml
dressed as Minnie, and Daisy, when Mary
and Margaret aro thu names by which tiny
should bu designated.
"What's lu a liamof" Is a very pertlheii
question, sluco character Ih often found to
answer to the 1 imu of thu person who
bears It. Wu would know that "Fair Hose
lleaiitySpot Temptation Touch Mu Not"
was a descendant of Ethiopian kings as
surely as that "Iucrcaso Success tioqicl
Shadrach" was of Puritan descent. Names
should be chosen because of their fit tit ss
and from associations, also with reference
to their future, adaptation. In view of the
unfortunates saddled with incompatible
names, why nut rig thu new baby out with
a diminutive and let it choose its own
nainu when it comes to years of under
standing? Then such Incongruities as a
llttlo dumpy, rolypoly woman called (I race
or 11 six-footer of 11 man with tho cogno
men of Wlillu might bu avoided. Detroit

A Stitch In Time.
It pays better to spend an hour every
now nnd then going over one's gowns
freshening them up and giving the little
touches hero and there that keep their
prettlness alive, than to wait until they
are nil going to pieces, and then have to
take it day and devotu yourself to mciidlne
them. You often can't, do much for them
at such 11 late hour, for thu tiny hole, or rip
