When,- Dettla brought her a , sandwtch
on a papef' .and a glass of milk. In a
araked glsiea they' had left out to throw
away, Helen sank down on a box for a
nomeat's rest. -'

A Bit then she realised that everything was
peeked. But she dug around in a box of
things from the bathroom which had not
been taken down, and found some vase
line and absorbent cotton.
It was after 3 before the men got 'every
thing out. Helen had arranged with the
Janitor's wife to sweep up, so she might
take Delia with her to help receive the
things In the new apartment.
.' "Now, Delia, if you'll carry th canary
and this box, I'll take th satchel."

Ballad, of Tips
By JAMES RAVEXSCROFT.
Tips of the good old Bummer time,
That went in the same old waya.
Handed, out In the reckless prim
Of th dear vacation days.
They'd come in. mighty handy naw,
Those shekels I Idly spent:
They'd help to solve the problem bow
'to settle ior gruo ana rent.
Tips that the r'ullman porter got.
And . I didn't aaxe refuse;
Tips raked In by the clever lot"
Of the -grafting diner crews.
Tip that I simply had to give
to stay at -resort hotels;
Freely, too. for a chance to live
With the other one-month swejis.
Tips for the ones who held my grip
And toted It now and then:
For moving my trunks around a tip.
And tips for. th taxi men.
Tips for brushing my elotbes and hat.
And for bellhop aad for maid:
Up to thls.ene and to that.
And the whole hold-up brigade.
Tips tha aood 4d Susasner-wow!
For th hard-earned coin I spent!
Tha thought glvas mat a wrloklea brow
And aa aching discontent.

Theater Goers, Read This
lljr DOROTHY D1X.
A few days sgo I tried to rail the
attention of' mn to the Inconvenlenco
thst they put whmen to In the theater
by forcing women to get up twlr after
each art, In order
to let thrm pass In
I represented to
men that when a
woman goes to the
theater It Is a gala
occasion with her,
In which she at
tires herself In her
heft frork, whl'i'h
Is usually made of
material that is
ruined by men
dragging over It.
Also that a Woman,
having taken oft
hat In order to add
to th comfort and
pleasure of tha men
In th audience Is so
enou. ibered with her belongings that sh
finds It extremely Inconvenient to get up
after haying one settled herself In her
seat. 8 he has her wrap, .her hat, her
hatpins, her handkerchief, her fan, her
opera glasses, her bag all to take car
of, and when she haa to get up to .let
a man pass sh Is forced to clutch all
of these multitudinous articles and hold
them up abav her head as sh flattens
herself against her seat, aa th man
pushes past. ....
It would he bad enouxh for h'womsn
to he put to (ho trouble of doing all
of this once during a play, -but every
woman who goes to ths theater 'has to
do It from four to twenty times of an
evening, because not only Is fqqi .man
In the row she sits In sure to go out
after every act, but there are prob
ably half a dozen different men that
decide to go at different time.
I called attention to this because I
felt sure that men did not rolls how
selfish they were, nor to what real suf
fering they put women by going out
after every act. I mas confident that a
real gentleman. If he had his thoughts
diverted to th matter would secure an
nd seat If he had fit.' Vitus dance or
some nervous trouble that prevented him
remaining quiet for a couple of hours, or
that he would drink enough before the
play brgan to sustain him throurh it, or
take such other measures as would pre
vent him from msklng a nulsano of
himself to everybody to. his vicinity In
It appears, however, that I was me
taken In this view, and that my mild
and amiable suggestions have stirred up
a perfect hornet's nest of protect from
the masculine theatergoing contingent.
I have bn snowed under with letters
from men who say that they will go out
just as much as they please between
acta, and that If women don't like It they
can stay away from ths theaters them,
selves, or go to the matinees.
Home of th men call attention to
women's sins In public places, and on
man says, "I think for women to come
to the theaters drenched In perfume that
nausestes every ona about them la just
as bsd aa for men to go out between th
acts." Another man writes: "What
annoys m Is th coming In late of th
"codfish aristocracy," who make It a
point never to come to th theater until
after the curtain Is up. Then they stroll
down th aisle to their places. Every
A Fight that
By FRANCES L. GARSIDE.
, The greatest misfortune that can be
fall a woman Is to reach the age of wrin
kles and have leisure to think about
them. It Is such a misfortune a woman
ahould pray, "Lord, grant when the
crow's feet show that I will be so occu
pied using my feet In the service of oth
ers I won't have time to notice them."
Mrs. Lysander John Appleton has the
wrinkles, which Is snnoylng, and also the
leisure, which makes of tha wrinkles a
tragedy, Jler struggles to become young
again are as pitiful as those a llfe-lovtng
man makes on hi deathbed to get well.
And as futll.
Sh recently read that If a woman
took an hour' rest every afternoon, she
would within a few weeks be as young
and handsome aa shs ever was, and Mrs.
Lysander John decided to try It. &he
flew from on taak to another to get her
work done, and at I o'clock, tired and
breathless, went to her room to reoelve
her first instalment of youth and beauty.
She darkened the room, lay on her bed.
and filled her mind with Beautiful
Thoughts. Ilelng a woman this was easy
to do, but If it had been Lysander John
It would have been Impossible- Just as
her mind was teeming with Beautiful

body In th row must rise to let them In,
thus blocking the view for st least six
rows, and distracting everybody's atten
tion. I think women are Invariably th
late comers, and that It -Is Just aa mucn
of a nuisance as for men to go out be
tween the acts."
Shake brothera, I heartily agrea
with you both. What we need Is a
oensor Xor the theater . who will take!
out the over-perfumed lady ' and' - dis
infect her. snd strong-armed usher
who will forcibly prevent peopd who
arrive late at the theater from taking
their seats until after th act Is finished...
Also there Is a crying call for some-'
body with a lariat who will choke Into
silence those garrulous Individuals who
go to the theater to converse about their
family affairs, or who feel called upon
to explain th plot of a play to their
companion, or who Indulge themselve In
humming the airs of an opera.
The truth Is there Is no better field
for the display of altruism than th
theater, for our pleasure In It depend
no less upon th conduct of our neigh
bors than It does Upon th excellence of
the production an .th stage. - In. vain
does a Caruso sing, or a Marlow charm,
or a Rose 8tahl seek to make us laughi
If th man behind us I singing In 'our
ear, or th woman to th right of up la'
reeking with patchouli, or th man to th
left of us tears our frocks and stampa
upon our toes six times during an even
ing. Perhaps, as a whole, w do not con
sider Just what tha theater stands for In
general life. Of course, to people' who
are rich, and who can go half a doseit
times to see the same play If they want
to, It makes no particular dlfferenc if
their evening 'at th plaj) la spoiled by
their neighbor. But to th majority .of
us, who hava ' limited means, theater
going is ths ona little luxury, th occa
sional treat, for which w save up, and
deny ourselves, and to hava thl festival
ruined by the thoughtlessness and selfish
ness of others la nothing short of
tragedy. . '
Bo I appeal to all men and women to
put Into practice th golden rule at tha
theater, and do aa you would b done, by.
If you are a man, don't tortura women
by going out between acts. -
If you are a woman, don't disgust men1
by scenting yourself up so that you of-j
fend their nostrils. - - ;
If you can't go to th theater before,
tha opening of a play, wait until after
th first act before you take your seat.
instead of spoiling th opening scene for
whol rows Of people. ,
If you are a commuter and -hava to
leave In th middle of th last act, t
and seats, so that you won't ruin tha
climax of th play for everybody about
you when you get up to go. '
Don't make a battering-ram of your
knees for the person who sits In front
of you. Few people enjoy having a
tattoo played on their spinal column.
Don't talk during tha act If you'v,
got to converse, stay at home.
Don't hum along. -w ith th artist on tha
stsge. Th people about you dl-ln't pay
out their money to hear you sing.
Just remember that If you do anything'
