"When my first husband was courting me
as a girl out in Kansas, there were two
girls who had willowy waists and moon

"Never again will there be quite the

Early In the winter, relates the New
Tork Times, a young American couple
decided to take their honeymoon trip with
a tourist excursion party booked for a
rather extensive trip through Southern
Europe and the orient.
t a cost of MOO
each. Including all expenses except per
sonal tips. The bridegroom provided him
self with two good cameras and an un
limited quantity of films, Intending to
make enough , photographs of out-of-the-way
soenes to cover part of his traveling
expenses. The bride had a very different
scheme In view. She had managed, when
engaging her passage, to secure promise
of aooommodatlons at the best hotels on
the Itinerary, such aa the Cecil In Lon
don, the Grand In Paris, Shepard's In
Cairo, and she saw to It that those prom
ises were rigidly fulfilled later on.
At every one of the twenty-three hotels
that she visited she procured hotel labels
for her trunks or hand baggage In as
great quantities aa possible. In some In
stances she obtained as many aa twenty
through Judicious tipping, in others only
six or eight. No matter If she stayed only
one day, she saw to It that her band bag
gage was labeled and meanwhile she
sought and found her opportunity to add
to her collection. At Monte Carlo and
other fashionable resorts she made shift
to secure labels from hotels which she
simply visited for that purpose. All told
she accumulated 230 by the end of the
trip. Also she bought 150 worth of Mal
tese lace at the moment of the ship's de
parture from that port, when the vendor
sold his entire stock at a ruinous reduc
tion rather than hold it over for the next
Meanwhile her husband, who had lost
no opportunity in the photographing line,
had gathered together a valuable collec
tion of scenes which he displayed among
the passengers on his return trip, with
the frank explanation that he had made
them for the purpose of selling them at
home. Many of the passengers who were
without photographs offered good prices
for certain favorite scenes never less than
tl a picture, and sometimes $2. By the
time the photographer arrived, In New
Tork he had sold a little over 300 pictures
for $400. He disposed of the remaining
scenes to a magazine writer at $1 a picture.
All told, he cleared 1421, deducting the cost
of his materials.
The bride sold her Maltese lace for ex
actly four times the amount she paid for
it Then she set about the disposal of her
hotel checks by advertising to the effect
that she had a few of the kbove for sale
among the people who liked to give their
baggage a muoh-traveled appearance. She
received numerous answers, and so eager
were her customers to buy her odd wares
that she had no difficulty In obtaining $1
apiece for the labels. Her profits amounted
to $370, while her husband's reached
$421. Their four months' honeymoon, trip
cost them exactly $22
. Hew One Woman Succeeded.
Such success aa I have had, writes a
business woman in the Outlook, I trace
back to four cause :
First A father who would never answer
a question, at random, but invariably gave
me the clue by which I could find lor my-
self the information sought There Is noth-
lng ilk standing on your own feet, men
tally and physically. - -
Second An early training in accuracy at
an old fashioned English school, where a
slip in a date meant staying after hours to
write out a list of the kings of England,
with the dates of their ascension and the
riims of their wives.
Third A bit of advloe George W. Cable
put into one of his southern stories to this
effect '.'Be always worth to your employer
a little more than he pays you."
Fourth A phrase I came upon one day by
chance:' "Find out what your employer
least likes to do, and do it for him."
Clrla Discard Hats. -
New Tork ' Broadway girls ' have abo
Ushed the hat for evening parade,
the costumes worn on America's
thoroughfare these warm evenings you
might imagine yourself on the Boardwalk
at Atlantic City, the plasa at Manhattan
Beach or the verandas at Saratoga. In-
stead of wearing a towering, weighty,
uncomfortable bunch of straw, feathers
and flowers or a dinky little sailor hat at
all, she gets her hslr done up In the after
noon, puts on her gown with the elbow
sleeves and goes to the theater in comfort.
As a matter of fact, it was the women
visiting New York who inaugurated the
costume of going to the theater and to
supper at the big restaurants bareheaded.
Tbey wander about hatleas In their uwti
towns and could see no reason for making
themselves uncomfortable when In New
York. Their New York sisters were quick
to see the advantage of the scheme and a
chance to display new styles in halrdreas-.

i Appreciates Her Salato.
A Philadelphia society woman who Is in
the habit of taking- long- drives and auto
trips into the country surprised her friends
the other day by ooquettlshly waving her
handkerchlef at a brakeman on a passing
freight train which hod held up their ma
chine at a wayside crossing. When her
companions demanded an explanation of
her queer aot ahe said: "I suppose It's
foolish of me, but It seems at if those
poor fellows had awfully lonesome work
and as it their bravery were not half ap
preciated. There they stand or sit on top
of thosa old cars for hours at a time, with
never a soul to talk to, with no one t,o no
tice if they should fall off even. I have a
lot of admiration for them. Every once in
a while one gets killed and nobody gives
the tragedy a second thought On a pas
senger train a brakeman can hobnob with
the men in the smoker, Indulge in conver
sation with helpless old women and little
children and get into touch with his kind,
but on those freight train a brakeman
must have a dreary time ot it They are
always ready to wave back at me and they
always act as if they appreciated my sa
lute. Sometimes they yell a few words of
greeting, as if they were glad to pass
the time of day with someone."
