is as Insidious as lnfluenaa, and as In

morning strong and happy, ready to do

haps a fsw yards from her own doorstep
will meet some other woman who Is
grumbling so badlv as to be heard across
tha street "It'a going to be hotter than
ever," the stricken one will explain Indig
nantly, "Isn't it unbearable?"
If the first woman Is susceptible, this Is
enough. Grumbling will break out on her
Instantly. For hours to come she will hate
the beauty of the day and infect all who
come In contact with her.
Pome women grumble because their holi
days are over; others grumble because
they Tiave not yet arrived; but the most
Insistent form of the grumbler is the
Woman who laments against the hot

her clothes, her work.
