subject of suitable combinations, both as
to appearance :id pormanency. thor
oughly discussed. As an outcome of these
confoienccs several color combinations
milted to different styles of architecture
have been selected and are now presented

suggestions, believe they are workInn for
the good of the whole craft. It la desired
and Intended to uplift the paint proposi
tion ii m a whole, and In thla the manufac
turer anticipates sharing benef.ts with the
master painter. Introduction to "Fashions
In House Painting," the fiee booklet men
tioned In following article.
With the Idea of promoting the Interests
of the merclianls Interested In the sale, of
mixed paints, the bureau of promotion and
development of tho Paint Manufacturers'
association of the I'nitol States, conceived
tlm Idea, some two years ago. of Introducing
and exploiting fashionable or stylish com
binations or r.olora for house painting, be
1 evluj; that there wns as much reason for
fashion and styles In house painting as In
In order that the styles adopted anil pro
moted should he not only thoroughly harmo
nious und In keeping with the styles of
architecture, but also practical fiotu the
slatidpnlnt of serviceability, tho bureau n
'istcd the Interest ami co-operation of sev
eral of the leading jnaster house painters
and decorators of the I'nited Slates, in
the preliminary work. After a number of
conferences between I he bureau nnd these
master painters and decorators, and after
the master painters had, themselves, put in
an Immense amount of work personally
on the proposition, six sets of combina
tions suited to different styles of architec
ture were decided upon, with the aiK'oin
panying colors for sash, porch floors, etc.
In nil of this work, while the principal
object wus harmony and serviceability, tho
intercuts of tho dealers were, nevcJlhclcs:;,
kept In mind, tho committees making It
their business to keep Ihe number of colors
proposed down to as low a point ns possible
to do away with the nnccudly for carrying
too large stocks.
When the fashion colors were finally de
rided upon definitely, the whole proposition
was gottnn up In booklet form, showing
the styles of architecture with the com
binations Intended for each different style
nnd showing also the different colors by
means of strips of painted paper. By way
t'C exploitation the bureau ha:i sent this
booklet, "The Fashion in House Painting,"
to tiO.OOO dealers, 30,000 painters and 10,000
architects. It also advertised the booklet
intensively through a number of the pop
ular monthly magazines In August, Sep
tember and October of this year.
It Is the Intention to popularize these,
combinations for at least four successive
yearn, which Is the average life of paint.
While each year may bring forth Borne one
special popular combination, when once
Introduced that particular combination
will be sure to remain popular for at least
Tho advantage In the fashion colors to
the property owner and paint user. In thus
avoiding all the difficulties encountered
when combinations are selected without
reference to or knowledge of their service
ability, Is Instantly apparent.

There cannot be a) greater contrast than
that between a young srlrl In Knglaifcl and
a young girl In America. The former Is
nfrald of herself, afraid rtf her men, and
of life. She turns to the past for guidance
while watching the future with timid hope,
her mind being gentle unless her conserva
tism Is attacked. She Is at once more
practical, within the narrow limits In
which she lives, and more affectlonats.
She is not at all Idealistic, but she Is ex
tremely sentimental. It la a curious mix
ture, for with all her eubnvlsslveness and
sentimentality she Is harder than the
American girl. The- latter Is afraid neither
of herself, of her men, nor of life; and In
conversation, If you talk In good faith,
you will find that she is not afraid of her
subject. She Is apt for every kind of
idealism, and Is not at nil sentimental.
She Is not so affectionate as an English
girl, but she Is much quicker to admire
und appreciate. The English girl Is a little
prone to discontent. Indeed. It may be
snld that In hr life she goes from discon
tent to discontent, while preserving an
affectionate attachment for her home and
relations. The American girl Is a song
bird that will not be caged. She keeps
her destiny In her own hands and goes
from victory to victory, or at least from
contest to contest; and, be It noted, never
nlong the path of self-indulgence. She
has a Spartan mind, a soldier's mind and
will consent to nothing that Is not uplift
ing. Sha is the finer type, tho other is
the inore lovable. An American girl Is
urought up by her schoolmistress; the Kng-
ush girl has never left her mother's side
ana sno has the softnesses, the foolish
fondnefcs and Illusions, of a narrow li'fe
a life seclu.l.l from everything that might
Imperil her purity or her happiness. In
the twentieth century she occupies an
oasis of seductive ignorance. In friend
ship one makes rapid way with the Ameri
can girl, for she is quick to admire, a
feeling by its Jiaturo soon kindled, and be
cause of her courage she Is not critical,
giving her confidence at on-. With the
Knglish girl friendship Is a matter at time.
She does not admire, no one in her cli-cle
ever admire; such a thluK would hva
for her a flavor of Impropriety; the poor
girl has only hor affection to offer, and
that by lis nature grows slowly. Marriagos
In America are, like their friendships, built
on admiration an t.nstable and shifting
iounaation. '1 he tngllsh girl takes you
for her sweetheart or her husband, be
cause she Is fond of you; Just that and
nothing more; her firm, yet Immature
mind, instinctively inclined to disapprove,
never takes upon Itself to admire. Such
a course Is too venturesome. Outside cer
tain settled relatione the Knglish girl is
sny ana distant and a little icy. The
American girl Is full of a warm goodness
that quickly melts and overflows. J. B.

Before the rest of the country makes
the usual comments on the behavior of
the women who crowded the sidewalks
and street near St. Bartholomew's church
and defied rain and the police In an ap
parently frantic desire to see something of
the big Gould-Drexel wedding, which took
place there, It would be well to take a good
many things into conslderation.and especi
ally to get a little exact information as to
who these women were and what they
It will be assumed, of course, by hinter
land critics, that such a display of bad
taste, Impudence and vulgarity could take
p ace only In this city, and that It was
characteristic, if not of New York women,
at least of a large and rather typical or
representatlce fraction of them. As a mat
ter of fact, neither assumption Is certainly
or even probably true. Like manifestations
have again and again been reported from
London, Paris and other European capi
tals, and even In our own smaller cities
any well-advertised wedding excites the In
terest and attracts the intrusive attention
of more people than are Invited to be pres
ent at Its celebration. ,
The chances are, moreover, that only a
minority of the women who made the
mad rushes around every carriage that
drove up were there for the gratification
of a morbid curosity excited by the widely
heralded wealth of the bride and bride
groom. That brought a few, no doubt, but
those who are wise in such affairs Insist
that most of the rioters came In order
to gain knowledge of every practical utility
in their business knowledge that would en
able them to make for their ambitious
customers gowns more or less like those
worn by the wives and daughters of big
fortunes. In other words, it was the desire
for money rather than the worship of It
that moved the greater part of the out
door assemblage, and they took advantage
of an unusual opportunity only with the
earnestness and disregard for appearances
that are characteristic of commercialism
In all it phases.
This Is, to be sure, an explanation of
what happened rather than an excuse for
It, but it does In a way and to a degree
free New York as a whole and the women
of New Y'ork In particular from most of
the accusations that will to brought
against them. After all charity' has been
exercised, however, the scenes around tho
church will remain an unseemly and hu-
milatlng page in local history. People who
go where they are not wanted, and where
thry have only a vague and general right
to be, cannot complain If they get roundly
scolded. New York Times.

tlie Chicago Medical society, when Dr.
Joseph Zt lsler spoke on "How to Be Beau

advertised for the last week, the lecture
room In the public library building was
crowded long before Dr. Zelsler appeared,
bearing bis secret with him. The majority
of the audience was n-.ade up of women.
But the men were no less eager for the
"how to" Information.
When Dr. Zelsler advanced to the speak
er's platform there was an anxious snuf
fling forward of chairs, and the audience
leaned forward with a ponianeoua move
ment. Dr. Zelsler prolonged the suspense
by casually seating himself In a comfort
able chair, carefully arranging the electric
light and giving two minutes to deep
thought before speaking.
There was no interruption to his lecture
from start to finish. Bereft of its technical
rhiasenlogy and boiled to fit a ready
listener's Impatience, the advice of Dr.
Zelsler was as follows: '
"Be healthy. Sleep well, eat' a good
