"What! And the announcement not
yet out?" was asked incredulously of
an attractive young lady one day this
week when she was caught In one of
the leading furniture stores going anx
iously over an assortment of rugs.
Nearby hung a collection of curtains
through which she had undoubtedly
been glancing, while a collection of
straight backed chairs, rockers, tables
and other house furnishings rested
suspiciously apart from the rest of the
store's goods. She blushed in a man
ner described as almost convicting.
Then she explained:
"O no, you don't understand. I know
I've been with him a lot lately, but
that doesn't have anything to do with
my mission today. You know we have
a house this year," and she displayed
with pride the fraternity pin that was
all but concealed behind the chrysan
themum. 'Tm on a lot of committees; I don't
know how many, and am treasurer be
sides. I know that I'm almost worn
out, though. This selection of house
hold goods Is something new to me. It
would be bad enough if I had my own
way about everything, but I don't.
That's the worst part of It, sometimes.
There's too much referendum.
"I'll come down here and select
something that I think Is just perfect
ly lovely, and then I'll bring some of
the other girls to approve my judg
ment Somehow they don't agree with
me often enough, and there's a whole
lot of work and exertion gone for noth
ing. "Yes, I think Til know a whole lot
about what to do If I ever have to go
through the experience of selecting
furnishings for a house of my own.
I know this much, there won't be so
much consultation of the other per
son or persons concerned. I'll have
my own way a little more than J'm
having It now. nwv. viim

ffleilti the Women
via? the Markets
"O, pshaw! Blame the luck! d n!"
Tou might not think it, but it's true.
Some of them even let that last ex
clamation escape their lips. Then they
partially apologize and jolly the broker.
Generally a little squeal of pain or a
sharp word of disgust suffices them and
they try again. That's when they lose.
But they don't always lose, nor do
they lose all the time. It just happens
occasionally, as it Is bound to do.
Who would think it?
Lincoln has a little clique of women
who play the bucket shops. Oh, hor
rors, no! They don't flock to the shops
andfceep-the-aeats nana while watch
ing the figures multiply on the boards.
They use the telephone.
"How's corn? 56 1-8 did you say?
What's been the tone? Down with a
rush? Oh, that's good. Buy me a thou
sand at 56 1-8. Have I got it? All
That Is the way they talk. Half an
hour later, more or less, this lady pur
chaser will call up again.
"Well, how's my corn now? Up?
Good! 57 3-4! Whew! Say, stop loss
at. Oh. let's see, 57 1-4."
She blithely hangs up the 'phone
with a snap, for she is fixed. The
price can fall back wherever it pleases,
but if it touches 57 1-4 it Is closed, and
subtracting the broker's fee of 1-8. she
has gain one cent or a little over $3
on her investment of $10. If It ad
vances still farther, so much the bet
ter. When she meets trouble she grits her
teeth and employes numerous steel
pointed words of her own coinage with
which to punctuate her displeasure.
It Is all very secret You couldn't
get at the names of the women for any
price. But they are there, neverthe
less. Either by mail or in person after
hours they have made deposits with
the brokers and thus their margins
are right on hand to back them In any
deal they may 'phone In.
It is fine sport. Not a host of wo
men indulge in it, but the number Is
great enough to think about once or
Why isn't It just as pleasant and
proper to do this as to play games for
prizes at parties? The answer by the
women interested is that the proprie
ty in either case Is equally commend
able. And the prizes from the bucket
shop are far more substantial than
those at the pink teas and such. Of
course In some of these society games
actual money stakes are played. One
may naturally infer that the women
who participate In these games take
the most interest in the bucket shops.
Married and single both do it The
social state makes no difference. The
interest is as keen to one as to the
other. Just as it is with the men, there
are some who show unusual shrewd
ness. Mayhap the naturally intuitive
nature of milady makes her in many
instances an operator even superior to
her brother. She deals, however, under
a handicap. She can not be present
to watch the board herself and get the
Still she reaps occasional flattering
harvests of pin money and when she
loses she charges It up to hubby under
the head of general expenses.
