Girls, Greed and Graft
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
Before me lies a letter which I hope
applies only to one girl in ten thou
sandand which I fear applies to one
in a hundred. For that hundredth girl
this little holding up the mirror to
the canker spot that will blacken
her whole nature.
"I had a friend for over a year.
While I, was away last summer she
met a man of 50, twice her own, age.
He fell madly in love with her, and
began to take her to dinner? and
luncheons and to lavish on her such
gifts as evening gowns, expensive
sweater coats, silver bags with money
enclosed, perfumes, powders and other
"She never mentioned the other
. man to me, nor did she let him know
of me. I returned accidentally and
we. met Two days later he disap
peared, and she has not heard from
1 him since. She broke the news of
his gifts to me gently but gradually
I got the whole story. I'm only earn
ing $30 a week, but she wanted me to
give her a lavalliere, set with three
small diamonds, for her Christmas
gift I could not, and gave her a $20
gift instead. Then she wrote and told
me not to try to see her for the pres
ent, but to save my money, and when
, I felt I could spend a great deal more
on her to let her know and she would
take me back. I know now that I
am well rid of a woman who would
be an encumbrance, but the disap
; pointment hurts. The other man was
honest, too, and I feel sure he planned
: to marry her. even as I did. j. K."
Cold-blooded, mercenary, selfish, a
eheat these are the titles that spring
to the lips in contemplating the his
tory of J. K.'s friend. She was more
than that she was guilty of a high
crime against herself that of dwarf
ing her own soul.
When any girl measures her own
charms in terms of what they will
buy for her and looks upon friend-
ship' as a means of obtaining lavish
gifts, she is putting herself in the
ugliest classification into . which a
woman can fall.
Of course, the girl who lets an in
fatuated old man pay for her clothes
and give her money never stood off
and took a good, square, honest look
at herself. If she had done so, this is
what she must have seen: A merce
nary girl selling a smile for a pair of
shoes, a friendly word for a new hat.

Denmark Back to Tallow
, Dips for Lighting
Denmark has a lighting problem so
serious that the Danish government
recently purchased 400 tons of tallow
from which to make candles, Com
mercial Agent Normal L. Anderson
reports from Copenhagen.
'There is a scarcity of kerosene
also and electricity is, of course, not
available to the isolated farmhouse,"
says Mr. Anderson, who quotes from
the "Tidsskrift for Industri," which,
in discussing the possibilities of
acetylene and alcohol illumination,
states: "Acetylene may now legally
be used and may be included in rire
insuiance risks" As a sult the
manufacture of acetylene lamps has
flourished, greatly and at the end of
the year 180 types had been put on

gown a creature selling herself.
Friendship and love give. When a
eirl is capable of asking a man for
an expensive Christmas gift and of
telling him, callously, It you haven t
any money you needn't come around,"
she is just a huckster, crying her
wares in the alley like the men who
drive around their little carts full of
red apples. But they are honorable
hucksters, trafficking in merchandise.
She is selling her soul, and not guess
ing she is related to the woman who
sells in more businesslike exchange.
The duplicity of deceiving the two
men about each other's existence is
the merest trifle we waive it aside.
But her lies. Well, what is deceit to
a supreme cheater who parcels out
her cold, unsympathetic nature at so
much a handshake?
An extreme case, you say? Yes, I
hope so, but a striking illustration of
the lesser cases that go on untragi
cally about us all the time.
The girl who wants attention frVrni
men, who demands that they take
her out and spend money in her, who
looks for gifts, defends herself like
this: "Isn't fair that he should come
and wear out the parlor furniture. He
ought to do something to show his
appreciation of my society."
, The Difference.
Oh, you mercenary Mabel, has it
ever occurred to you that Johnnie
shows the most earnest appreciation
ot your society by merely seeking
itl A girl who bores him, but to
whom he is indebted, he takes to the
movies; the girl he's perfectly willing
to share with the other fellows he
takes to a dance, but the girl Johnnie
honestly likes is the girl with whom
he can contentedly spend a quiet ev
ening at home. - ' V
Life is full of "quiet evenings at
home." Happy married people have
to be chummy enough to enjoy them
together. Happy married people give
each other sympathy and understand
ing without setting a price on them.
So do lovers so do friends.
A girl who puts a price on her so
ciety, who lets greed and gifts and
graft come to appeal too much to her,
is simply unfitting herself to be a
friend or a sweetheart or a wife. And
that is a worse charge than the one
we made originally against her.
Greedy, mercenary, calculating,
cold J. K.'s friend and all others of
that type are unfitting themselves for
life and love. For the sake of little
presents, and a garish present, they
are forswearing life's whole beautiful
future and the great gifts of love.

(Peggy, coins to see how the war crops
of the Giant of the Woods are getting along,
finds him In despair because they are being
attacked by hordes of insect Huns. When
her Blrdland subjects greet ner, she gets an
idea of how to save the crops.)
PEGGY ran over to the woods
where the Birds were awaiting
"My beautiful Birds 1" she cried,
holding out both arms to them. "I've
been lonesome for you."
"And we for you, Princess Peggy 1"
sang the Birds, fluttering about hap:
Judge Owl rustled sleepily out of a
hole in a tree and hooted his poetical

We feel as though we had the mumps;
Our hearts are like a lot of lumps;
You'd take us for a pack of chumps."
"It makes me happy to think you
like me so much," said Peggy. "But
I'd rather have you cheerful when I'm
not here than to think of you as sad
and moping. I want you to be gay
and gladsome for my sake. My mam
ma says it is a selfish love that wants
an absent one to be sorrowful."
"You are right, Princess Peggy'
twittered Bob Olink and Mrs. Bob, be
gining. a funny hopping dance that
made the other Birds laugh. As they
danced they sang:
"It's jolly fun to be alive; .
On joy and mirth all creatures thrive.
We'll banish trouble far away;
There's lots more sense in being gay."
"But I'm here on a very serious
matter now," broke in Peggy, grow
ing sober as she thought of her errand.
"I'm awfully worried because Farmer
Dalton is in danger of losing all his
fine crops from bugs, and insects, and
The Birds looked at each other and
then at Peggy. There was a strange
silence for a moment, and then Mr.
Swallow spoke up bitterly:
"It serves him just right for the
way he treats the Birds."
Peggy was surprised. She had
thought Mr. Dalton a very' nice man,
one who would . be considerate of
every one. Perhaps the Birds were
still hostile to his helper, the Giant of
the Woods, who had been their worst
enemy until she tamed him.
"What has he done?" she asked. .
"Come up heref and we will show
you," said Mr. Swallow, leading her
to a knoll overlooking the Dalton
farm. "Do you see all those funny
things over there in the fields?"
"Do you mean those scarecrows?"
"I'd call them Scarebirds," shrilled
Mr. Swallow. "We thought Mr. Dal
ton was a pretty good friend of ours
until he put those things up to keep
us away. We used to go into his
fields and help ourselves to insects and
grubs and beetles that were after his
crops, but this summer he has shown
us that we are not welcome, and so
we have kept away. That's why his
growing things are being eaten up."
"I thought there must be some rea
son," exclaimed Peggy, "and that's
why I came to you, my loyal subjects,
for I felt that 'you would be too
patriotic to let any American crops
be destroyed by insect Huns if you
could help it I'm sure you must be
mistaken about Farmer Dalton not
making you welcome."
"You wouldn't think so, Princess, if
you'd been shot at as I was last
week," twittered Bob Olink.
"I don't believe he intended those
Scarecrows to keep you Birds away.
You know Crows do a lot of harm."
"But these are not Scarecrows, they
are Scarebirds," insisted Mr. Swallow.
"Scarecrows are just old clothes
stuffed with straw and with hat on
them. They don't frighten us. In
fact, I had a dandy summer v me in
one of them last year. These things
are different. They thrash around
with their arms and make awful
noises. Even at that we might not
mind them so much if Mr. Dalton
didn't bang away with his gun every
time a bird ventures anywhere near
"There's something very wrong
here," decided Peggy, "and it needs
fixing right away, or he is sure to lose
his crops. Won't you Birds help
"We can't help our enemy," chorused
all the Birds very determinedly,
"and he is our enemy who scares and
"Can't you do it even for the sake
of our soldiers," pleaded Peggy. "If
the insect Huns eat the crops our sol
diers will not have food to eat this
coming year and neither will we."
A bird thajt's dead can't eat a Hun
That's just the truth and not a pun
Thus hooted Judge Owl in answer.
The other Birds nodded their heads
