i Knitting Antidote for Dissension.
I I have heard that knitting was good
i for nerves, that it was a sure cure for
!;, the "blues," but the latest virtue that
has been ascribed to it is that it main
i$ tains peace at women's club, meetings.
This is very noticeable at the Ne-
braska Federation of Women's Clubs'
convention, now in session. Nearly
every woman is industriously plying
her fingers during the programs, and
behold, there is no arguing or dis
; sension. Why? Because if one should
', 'stop to discuss a point and thereby
lose her mental poise the result would
Hit a misshapen sweater or muffler,
which would face one accusingly.
A prominent club woman who is a
devotee of knitting, says:
... "When you knit you cannot allow
( yourself to become provoked. Many
i , Twomen merely quarrel at a convention
j because they are nervous. Occupying
: the hands relieves stored-up energy,
l ' ' which always seek an outlet. At eon-
ventions, heated discussions are often
the only outlet."

ONE is reconciled to the threat of
the bustle when it takes the
lovely line of drapery found in
this dinner gown of pink and silver.
Simplicity is the keynote of this frock,
yet artful, indeed, is the draped skirt
embroidered in silver motifs. The
corsage, plain, as the poverbial pipe
stem, gives the perfect outline to the
figure. The neck is softened against
the flesh with a flat fold of mousse
line. A becoming decollete is ob
tained by the softly folded collar
which falls to the shoulder points,
where it meets the sleeve, which by
its next-to-nothingness proves that
beauty unadorned is yet adorned the
most. A scarf of pale lavender net
gives another note of dawn to the
pink and silver tints of this gown, and
justifies its name, "Aurora."
How About That Third
Breakfast Cup of Coffee?
In the matter of cutting down the
daily food consumption to a reason
able minimum, why not begin with
coffee ? Although coffee is a true stim
ulant, it is essentially a drug and has
in- itself no food value. Its effects in
the main are due to an alkaloid, caf
feine, which, it is believed, is a heart
' In a sound, Wealthy individual,
doses of caffeine equivalent to that

coffee produce no noticeable effect
except a slight nervousness. Doses
equivalent to one and one-half cups

cient to produce any real stimulative
effect raise the blood pressure, some
times dangerously, and stimulate the

WHAT MAN SAYS OF WOMEN
The following letter needs no comment. There could be but one reason
for the author's effort.
"Mr. Editor: Kindly publish this in your newspaper as it pleases you.
"By Woman was Eden lost and man cursedl
"If you trust her, give up all hope of heaven!
"She cannot love because she is too selfish. She may have a fancy but
that is flattery, Her smiles are deceit. Her vows are traced in the sand.
She is a thread of candor, with a web of wiles.
"Her charity is hipocracy. She is deception every way, hair, teeth, com
plexion, heart, tongue and all.
"Regarding matrimony, I would not have a United States suffragist
in my presence for all the world. She is the most headstrong, stubborn
and selfish woman in the world.
"It is the United States government's duty to drive her home and
compel her to take care of the house and the children where she belongs.
"Any feminine entering politics, filling offices, driving automobiles,
lose their motherhood. Any man who does not defy that evil loses his
manhood. Woman suffrage is a crime against the Bible and against na
ture. Any woman who does not take care1 of the home, but otherwise
enters politics, belongs to jail.,
"The Bible demands women to be in submission to man.
"American men worship women as a god. I am not going that crazy
yet. I worship the God in Heaven as my God.
"That woman picture on the coin is an unnatural idea.
"If a woman becomes mayor, governor or president; of the United
States I will flee from the country.

How Important Are
' Wives in Business?
Dayton, O., Oct. 24. "How impor
tant a factor is a man's wife in his
success as a money-maker?"
John H. Patterson, president of the
National Cash Register company, in
tends to know exactly and he is
looking for the answer in dollars and
cents. He is experimenting along
original lines with his entire sales
His plan is of interest not only to
the men and women directly affected,
but it promises to have far-reaching
results. Already big business men are
writing for particulars and it goes
without saying that women inter
ested in the advancement, of the sex
regard the Dayton experiment as of
great significance for its wide recog
nition of woman's influence in a bus
- The experiment had its beginning
last week, when more than 500 wives
of sales agents and salesmen of the
National Cash Register company
were brought here from all over the
United States and Canada for a busi
ness convention. It was exclusively
a woman's affair, the husbands re
maining home attending to their reg
Learning Business Secrets.
In a series of morning, afternoon
and night sessions the wives were let
into the secrets of the cash register
business. They were told all about
the company's policy, methods of
selling and profits on sales. They
were taken through the factory to
learn how cash registers are pro
duced. They were informed of the
usefulness of the cash register and
the problems with which salesmen
have to deal. And they were in
structed how to assist their husbands
in becoming better salesmen.
Now tljat the wives know some
thing about the business from which
the family income is derived, it is pre-,
dieted that they will not be satisfied
if their husbands do not earn more
In speaking of the project, Mr. Pat
v"This is my pet convention and I
believe it is the forerunner of a great
change in the position of a wife with
relation to her husband's business.
"I believe in woman suffrage. I
believe in woman's rights. I believe
that it is highly important not, only
to business, but to all the affairs of
life, that women shall have a larger
part in our daily activities.
"She is taking her rightful place in
life, and there is plenty of work for
her to do.
"Our convention of the wives of
the salesmen themselves was a great
success far beyond our expectations.
We talked to these wives just as we
would talk to their husbands. And
we believe the results will be a vast
increase in the selling efficiency of
every man whose wife was here."
