How to Raise Your Salary
By DOROTHY DLX.
I hve received a letter from a young . tlonary? Do you do the iiort of work that
girl, who says: jyour employer can trust to bo out of the
Ain't You Never Been No Place? By Tad
"I am a utenographer getting a moder
ate salary and would like to Increase my
income In some way. It I could

Ten, Indeed, little
Rirl, I can advise
you about a study
to take up at night
that will enable
you to earn more
money. And It is
the study of steno

In an office you
may be very sure that the reason of It
Is that you are not worth better" pay.
The law of demand and supply Is inex
orable, and If you do not receive the
highest price for your services it Is simply
and solely because you don't deliver the
high-priced class of goods.
Quit thinking of yourself as a pool
down-trodden, unappreciated working
woman, and your employer as a grind
ing tyrant and a growling, grouching
churl. Just try to get on tho outside of.
yourself, and take a good. long, dlspaa
cinnata look at your own work and see
if you don't think yourself that
nrcttv indifferent, sloppy
How fast can you take dictation? How
accurate are you? How do you spell?
tan you take a score of letters without
making a slr.gle mistake? Can you write
ivtn a sliifclo PSo without making cr
loia that you have to rub out, and that
make unsightly smears? Isn't your spell
ing of the sort to Indicate that you're
not even on visitlntf terms with the dlc-
office without some more competent
person looking over it to catch and cor
rect your mistakes?
Oh, you say you don't pretend to be
very fast, or an eipert typewriter, and
you never could learn how to spell, and,
of course, you make mistakes, and the
typewriter will balk and buck-Jump for
you, and it's the place of the man
Mgher up to catch the error when you
have written "ten thousand" for "one
thousand" in a letter or that the goods
will be shipped via Portland, Me., wheo
they are to go by Jacksonville, Fla.
In a word, my dear little sister, you
admit that you nava nof mastered your
trade and that you turn put the most In
competent work, and yet you complain
that you get a moderate salary and
you'd Ilka to study something else to do
on the aide. Believe me. I give you a
straight tip when I tell you that you
would make a mistake to divide your
energies and interests, aud that you
could earn no more money by doing two
trtngs badly than you do by doing one
All that any stenographer needs to do
to Increase her earning capacity is to do
her work better. The market ia glutted
with Ignorant, Incompetent stenographers
who oan neither wrlta nor spell, who
work with one eye on the clock and
their mlnde full of vaudeville show and
beaux. They ara cheap because they do
cheap work, but the world Is fu.ll of
rushed business men who are simply ach
ing to pay- high salaries to the kind of
stenographers that can be relied upon to
do quick, accurate work.
The women who climb up In offices
from assistant typewriters to being
private secretaries don't do It by taking
up some other work on the outside.
They concentrated on stenography and
learned their own trade thoroughly.'
If you want to make more money, little
sister, all that you'va got to do is to do
your work so well that you put It In the
high-priced class In the labor market.
And thin is true, no matter whether you
are a prima donna or a scrubwoman.

Ky MILK OVKRHOLT.
"If I could only buy a cow and save the coat of cream,
And shoo tho noisy milkman off, 'twould be a happy dream."
That's what 1 told myself one day. I Bald: "Why, can't you ,
We'd have fresh milk and butter, too, and whey from tnlcrobea free?
We'd have our home-made buttermilk without a cent of coat,

Except a trifling um for feed, and that would not ba lost."
I eald that over to myself until I made a vow
To save my cash till I'd enough to buy a gentle cow.
And ao one day I found a man who offered one for sale;
She had a pare blue gleaming eye; she bad no horns or tall.
He charged me ninety plunks for her, and awore I had a snap;
But when I tried to milk the brute she sat down tn my lap.
And then I gave the neighbor's boy a quarter every day
To coax a pint of milk from her. I bought a ton of hay.
Beoldea t fed her bran and straw and and built a cold-proof shsd,
I bought some other luxuries and aaw that she was fed.
Why dwell upon the piteous tale? When six months after that
I figured on the com of cream and whey and butter-fat,
I found each plut of so-called milk had coat a dollar-ten
In feed and cow and shed and boy and clothes aad work and mea.
And so In anger and In pain I killed the cow one day
And sold her to the butcher tor whatever he would pay.
Did you ever stop to think why one
cook gets $3 a week and another cook
gets U0.000 a year? It's because of the
difference In the quality of their cooking.
One can't boil water without scorching
it, or make a biscuit that Isn't a deadly
weapon, and the other can take' a tough
piece of beef, and a potato and an
onion and a carrot, and make a dish
that is fit for a king. One cook had
never taken the trouble , to - learn her
trade, and the other has mastered every
detail of it.
Why is it that one woman has to make
dresses for $10 or H5 a piece, while an
other can get $300 or $300 for making a
gown? Bimply because the cheap woman
Is a bungler. And the other woman Is
an expert. One woman will send your
dress home with the skirt hanging forty
seven different ways, with the sleeves
sewed n wrong, and he hooks not
matching, while the other sends you
back a perfect garment that It Is a
pleasure and a comfort to wear. One
turns out Incompetent work, and the
other good work, and we cheerfully iay
the difference in price.
The great majority of middle-aged
women who are suddenly thrown on their
own resources to make a living take
boarders. Most of them fail at Jt, and
the reason Is becauxe they never do
their work properly. I''or seventeen

marriage proposals, or perhaps It would
be more truthful to say it had been

wss en one of these occasions that a

"fllnc.e nobody Is anybody antes he or
ganise a society of some kind." he said,
pounding on the table to bring his pillow
cushion ladles to order, "I will organise
a Family Ijnor Mat club, and Invito all
who are the family door mats to join."
The possibilities, the wide scope, tho
almost nutlonul need of such aa organi
zation for a mumen almost overwhelm
him, and lie paused to gain control of hi
emotions by blowing his nose.
"Is there a door mat memSer tn your
family?" 1 e asked, In a vole ho tried
to make thunder, but from which all the
thunder had been removed by thirty
years of matrimony, "if there Is. let him

The possibility that in some families the

him, and caused hlri to look with uncer

There was a noise at tbe door; Mrs.
