jabots and such flufflneas has brought
about a distressing exhibition of preten-
tlous and unattractive thlnga of this aoi t,

Will but exercise discretion and taste.
Good lac and fine hand embroidery are
perforce expensive and the woman who
cannot afford to pay high prices must
content herself wtlh neckwear that does
not boast these accessories. Better a
plaited frill of fine net or lawn, untrlmmed,
than a frill trimmed In coarse lace or pre
tention machine work, and luckily there
are many of the simple though dainty
models from which to choose If one but
had the judgment to choose wisely. '
The cleansing and laundering qualities of
neckwear are also to be taken into con-
alderatlon by the woman who must econ-
omise and it la orten true mat an expeu
lv frill or collar la cheaper In the long
run than one that costs much lesa at the
gtart, because the more expensive article
may be laundered again and again while
the cheaper one, when It loses Its fresh
ness, Is entirely out of commission.
If one la to accept thla excuse for ex
travagance one must make sure that the
costly trifle really will stand much laun
dering or cleansing and moreover will not
require extraordinary clever handling. The
laundering of the fine neckwear which
every woman covets this season calls for
more Intelligence or skill than the average
laundress possess and the wise woman la
she who, unlesa she is bleaaed with that
rara avis, an inspired and conscientious
laundress, assumes the responsibility of
laundering her frills and collar herself.
She may be densely Ignorant at the start
but she will have mure paUenu UiaUi the
laundress and will be willing to spend more -time
on the work, and she will know too
exactly how the thlnga should look after

one can say for a vast majority of the
women who make laundry work their busi

and fine laces - more carefully than 'any
one who has not paid for their fllmlness
and fineness will. Yes; every girl, or
woman whose pocket money Is limited
should launder her own fine neckwear and
her own fine lingerie blouses, too, for that
matter, and possibly it is a realization of
this fact which has made the 'laundry

The business girl who earns her own
money and provides for her own needs
learns the value of money and becomes
experienced ln spending it Judiciously. This
1 one of th greatest gains of a business
experience. Th average girl knows little
about money until she has some suoh train
ing. Bhe 1 usually given a little "pocket
money, but aa her clothing and other es
sentials axe provided by her parents she
spend thla generally as she pleases. -
By going Into business a girl learns some
of the hardships of life, and It. Is just us
well to realise that life Is not all "beer
and skittles." She Is better fitted to train
her children for what is ahead of them
ln the battle of lifea,- She Is prepared to
point out to them th sort of armor they
will need and to help them put It on.
Bhe learns, too; self-control. ' She is no
longer at the mercy of her whim and
'Caprices. There Is no place In business for
these things, . and they are gradually
eliminated from her character.
Best of all, a few years spent In the
business world teach her bettjr than any
thing else what aort of home the business
person needs and what a home means to
the one who works. Nothing else can g1v
her Just this Inxlght. Sh knows whaty'lt
Is to come to a cheery, comfortable home
at night, where a nourishing and appetis
ing meal awaits her, where everything
possible has been thought of t rest and
refresh her. She realises to the full Just
what thla means to the tired worker. She
1 ready'to give It to the man she loves.
Th business girl Is certainly a broader
minded, more alert, more capable woman
and. therefore, a better wlf than the girl
who has no training to develop her along

Chicago's Prettiest Girl.'
.Miss Genevieve Lyons,' a 17-year-old
pupil of Englewood High school, possessed
of wonderful brown eves, undulating
brown hair, the nose of a Greek goddess
and, the mouth of a smiling baby, has
been proclaimed the prettiest school girl
ln Chicago. ,.
Her Image, in marble, is Ube graven as
a monument to the' quintessence of adoles
cent Chicago beauty in the kcystono of
the new Hotel Sherman. Bhe begins a
series of sittings before Josef Korbel, the
brilliant young nculptdr, , who has Just
been. awarded the John C. Shaffer prise
at the Chicago Art institute for his ideal
ized head in marble," "The Inspiration."
Miss Lyon, together, with several hun
dred other young women, competed for
tile honor of the beauty prize and the Im
mortality of a statuej reproduction where
it- would look Into the facea of a million
people dally from the corner of Clark and

the very last to be submitted. The Judges
aelected It unanimously, sent for her and
found that the photograph had not de

girl they had ever seen. - -
Together with the glory. Miss Lyon wlna
a prise of $100 and a scholarship at the
Art Institute, awarded by Joseph Beifeld,
president of the Bherniait-Hotel company.
Mr. Korbel, the sculptor, expressed him
self as enraptured with her beauty.
"Bhe has the idealized type of the Ameri
can perfection "of face," he said. "Hers
does not follow, any of the classic types,
but' is a fusion and amalgamation of the
beauties of all the old races commingled
in a modern perfection which can be seen
