A woman in business is very much
distressed by having the statement mafia
to her that the word of our sen was not
held in high esteem in the legal world,
that from almost every standpoint woman
Was regarded by nan aa a rather ir
I'ntll the last quarter of a century
woman waa what man made her, wjth
his laws and restrictions and traditions.
Vet even with all those handicaps she hat
lft a remarkable record upon the book
of history. (
In every walk of life, In every art and
sphere, woman haa made her thinning;
mark. During the laat twenty-fire years
her progress haa been lens Impeded by
tha debris of old traditions, and aha haa
ied forward upon the broadening road
of progress with astonishing rapidity.
!, Comments and criticisms aurh aa my
correspondent repeats are scarely worth
remembering or refuting. Man compelled
woman to prevaricate, about herself for
so many centuries that if she haa still
the tendency to withhold the truth or to
distort Jt at times we noed not wonder.
. Man hid her away from all knowledge
of tha great issues of Ufa so long and
kept her in Ignorance for fear sh would
know' herself and him too well that we
should not be surprised If she is still
unable ' to grasp real condition! of life
as readily aa he la.
' A realisation of . personal responsibil
ity ha only begun to dawn upon woman.
She still -thinks of herself, to, a great
extent, ;. as the privileged being where
self-dependence Is concerned that man
educated her to believe it was God's in
tent When she was formed. . -
'.Without question, woman does not keep
appointments- of a business nature as
promptly or regard obligations .as seri
ously as the majority . of men do., few
business women are as thorough as men
In- their work, and their methods are
less direct, less positive. Women are usu
ally more nervous than men, ahd conse
quently' lost agreeable to 'deal with.
Jt is only the exceptional woman who
possesses the power of" concentration
which is one of the first qualities' a man
develops in Business, women scatter their
forces in thousand avenues where men
conserve them. Women- have ' not yet
learned, to know the value of time in
business matters " as men perceive 1U
valui.T-' ' -. . " . ' '
Tactful and agreeable in social life, in
business woman rarely shows these qaul
Ities to the same degree the most blund
ering man exhibits them in his dealings
with his fallows.' ' ' . '
She is often brusque with her own sex
and indefferent with the other, mistak
ing both attitudes for poise In the bus
iness world. Woman atlll expeots privi
leges and benefits to be granted her be
cause she is a woman. .
-But ail these peculiarities will be out
grown with the passage of time and the
Increasing -opportunities - flowed her for
the cultivation of her full powers. Here
are few1 suggestions' for every woman
who has started upon, a business career
and who' wishes to prove herself as suc
cessful its her male competitors.
Let her put down In her' note book
these qualities aa worthy of cultivation:
. A sens of responsibility to . fill her
position, with dignity and exactness.
A realisation of tha value of time, her
own ahd that of others. .
' Promptness In keeping engagements.
A purely business point of view regard
ing debts, with no Idea of sx privilege
A k n-l t - '4
The value' of affability and tha neces
sity or tact in business an airs.
The need of controlling the nerves and
A fine sense of honor, of truthfulness,
arid a, deslrs' for thoroughness.
Meantime her la what Is reported by
Mile' Borst, a French' philosopher, who
has been experimenting with men and
women , in the matter of credibility of
evidence: .'Tha experimenter used twenty-four
persons, . twelve of each sex. In
After ending the tests, which covered
several weeks, as .the subjects were ex
amined repatedly. Mile. Borst tabulated
the results. ,' , t
She noted falsa answers,, correct an
swers, answers certain and uncertain,
correct or wrong answers given under
oath. She thus discovered the extent of
evidence given. Ita faithfulness, the as
surance of the witness, the Influence of
the 'oath upon him or her. '
These' are her chief conclusions;
Entirely faithful evidence Is the ex
ception, every Witness supplying from his

About Iff per cent of the statements In
si voluntary deposition' are wrong. --'
Depositions brought about by. sugges

fuller.' that 1, - of detail-but less relia
Kvldence improves by practice.
Women are more truthful witnesses
than men. -" - '
About one-twelfth of the statements In
a deposition under, oath, are Incorrect.
Mile. Worst's . investigation simply
'hears out, in a scientific manner, the
idea that woman sees more details than
man, and remembers them better.
It is an Interesting discovery.

in business" has been misinformed re
