Most 'American girls can easily decide
for" themselves the question of vocation.
The majority o them marry -when their
ears of girlhood and Its gaieties are past.
But the 'girl who. through Xorco of cir
cumstances, must work to earn her daily
bread and who would not deviate from the
purely womanly which she must retain to
make marriage the consummation of her

whatever the cause may be there are
among us mkny young women who
must work to live.
If questioned, it is generally revealed
that father is .dead. Or he may have
failed both in health and wealth,, leaving

you want to marry be a nurse. Few
girls have ideals centered about anything
that could be higher than a perfect home
and such a one will not usually be dis
appointed in attaining her heart's? desire
if she enters the field of nursing
You may be secretary, or stenographer,
or clerk, the salaries are sufficient) yet
there Is always the difference of posi
tion between a girl and her employer
which, though she may ignore, is not
easily overcome. It is not so with the
professional trained nurse. Her position
deserves men's highest respect at all
times which tends to develop In her a per
sonality and elevation of character that
few Cornell can maintain in any other
work. It teaches her to. control the minor
weaknesses of her disposition, and by the
example of superior nurses set constantly
before her, the highest types of pure wo
manhood are developed.
A Tiurse's life Is not a poem, nor are
the high standards always obtained, but
nurses, as students, are such a jolly lot
of girls, and fun, so necessary a recre
ation, that a sense of humor and the
ludicrous conceives many a sidelight of
comedy in the tragedies of life which so
balances it that a nurse Is rarely despon
dent, never sad.
Here iis that one finds the large bux

she who during her probation makes some
unheard-of blunder carries through all
her course a suggestive name 'to remind

The llttlo red-haired nurso who is
known as "Reddy" has a gentle but de
spondent -patient down the half in No.

enthusiasm. A great commotion occurs
one day when Bcddy rushes into No. 10,
plumps herself upon the bed and presses
her electric- button till the bell rings
furiously in the diet kitchen. Every
nurse in the ward hearing it thinks No.
10 must be suffocating, and rushes to
Iteddy's aid. Itcddy looks up innocently
and asks In a weak voire for the janitor
to please adjust the sunlight In the gar
den. Perhaps it then dawns upon the bunch
of girls that Reddy is personating a very
fat and fussy Senator's wife, No. S. who
requires assistance from the entire hos
pital staff when she wishes to descend in
pomp to the garden for her morning air
ing. As Reddy walks very sedately down the
hall a few minutes later, a superinten

with the ghost of a little sigh. "It is in

"However small the part a girl is play

Partly it lies in the power to imitate.
With -good powers of mimicry, a good

make her way on the stage, though not,
of course, to the highest art.
"Every actor has to begin by imitating
somebody else. It requires exceptional
talent to know what to do without being

"Acting realistically means most of the

or a woman to go on the stage and play
himself or herself.

The fame of the omelet Is throughout
the land and limited .to no cotintry.' No
one who has ever been enthralled in its
billowy, savory qualities would ever con
cede it to be merely a breakfast dish. It
is an achievement.
The omelet Is prized in every walk of
life, -from the President's mansion down
to the man who must cook his own meals
before the campflre.
An omelet and a. cup of coffee would
satisfy the most fastidious, and Indeed

Omelet is associated with such meats
as sliced boiled kidney, minced tongue,
and the ever delicious breakfast' bacon.
the latter, broiled, of course.
While the plain omelet, is made to suit
the requirements of every one, there
are many and various ways in which

be made with herbs, such as parsley;
with potatoes, with salmon, with lobster.
with sardines, with truffles, with shrimp,
to say nothing of tomatoes and shallots.

last of the eight children of Mme. Schu-mann-Hcink.

name George Washington Schumann-
LHcInk as he Is of having been born in
the I-nlted States. He is as plucky and
gamely asaertive as If he came on both
sides from good, old Revolutionary stock.
One of the Dresden dailies recently print
ed a story which is typical of the boy.
With several playmates, Ueorge Washington-
Schumann-Helnk was skylarking In
the grounds about his home when one of
the boys said something about "Our
Kaiser." Immediately the little Schu-mann-Heink
cried out, "Your Kaiser, you
mean; the head of ray Government is tne
President of the United Stales."
A very' wealthy woman living only a
short distance from the home of former
President Grover. Cleveland, at Princeton.
N. J., heard this story from the lips of
Mme. Schumanh-Helnk while she was
playing her engagement in "Love's Lot
tery" in New York City, and It made
what Is known as a "hit" with her. One
of the first letters Mme. Schumann-Hcink
received on her arrival in Chicago -contained
a deed to. 50 acres of land lying
quite close to Princton University. It
was from the woman on whom the atory
made such an impression. She wrote:
"I like to encourage the kind of patriot
ism you have Instilled. In your youngest
son. Therefore I want you to make him
a present of this land with my compli
ments. It is valuable now, but will be
much more so before he arrives at the
United States voting age."
The United States flag is to . George
Wahlngton Schumann-Helnk the prettiest
color scheme ever Invented. When his
mother was at her home- last August the
boy Insisted that he must have a large
silk United States flag flying- from his
bedroom window in the second floor of
the Koetzschenbroda villa. Investigation
showed Mme. Schumann-Helnk that the
authorities would object to the .flying of
a foreign flag from any building unless
& German one of the same size and tex
ture should be unfurled alongside. Little
Schumann-Helnk, a nimble wit if. ever
there was one, solved the difficulty in. an
instant. He said: "All right, we'll have
a German flag made at the same time
and hang that out of sister's window.
She was horn In Germany and won't
care." That Is why a big flag- of the
United Staes and one of the,klnd which
represents Germany are found 'fluttering

Songs of tho Wind.
THE SOUTH WIND.
Gently stirring rose and palm tree.
Stealing sweets from rose and cereus,
Through a. world of fragrant wlldnew.
To the cold north bringing jnlldneea.
With the breath of spice and orchid
Do I Mow.
THE EAST WIND.
Damp and raw from the world of -waves;
Through canvas and rigging. I madly beat;
"With the stinging- tang ot the ocean's nlt
I lash the crews of the flyingVfleet.
And fishwives weep when they bear my song:
Tangle ot froth and sullen roar.
Bodies untoesed on a frozen shore.'
THE WEST WIND.
The dust ot the desert, tho grass ot the
The rush of wild horses, the rustle-of- grain.
I weave into rhythmic accord with' the odors
. Of pine, of the' mountain and sage of tho
The song that r ring Is the song of the open
The crashing of comets through infinite
The earth's deep heart throbblngs, the mur
mur o' rivers
All sorrows and joys is its measure sad
place. THE NORTH WIND.
Trom the frosted harp of the god of'Ics
I strike the, chill chords as I stag to raea
Of blistering, cold and blinding snow.
Of frozen specters of living, woe.
Of dim ice caverns and splintered air,
Of. dazzling stretches ot glacial frlare.
Of -mile, upoa miles of fflecfcless white.
Arid over It all
The crimson aa4 gold of the northern light.
