Grt Chana"f ta Women.
"I had rather be a successful wo
tonn than an unsuccessful lady." Mr
s. prominent woman. This statement
makes some or ua alt up who have
been Jogging along without milling
tha Incompatibility ot attaining suc
cess and remaining a tad. Uetor con
atderlng tha matter we real I)- ahould
define termi, except that no one haa
over been able to state Just exactly
what a lady la.
Success la tha chief desire ot life.
Time was when a woman attained the
greatest success possible to her mere
ly by being a lady. She waa admired,
ahe married well, she became a social
leader, aud tha highest compliment
had been passed when It was aald,
"She Is always a lady." Men changed
feeeause business mothods changed.
Aftd ono ot the greatest factors in this
hangs was the tact that the success
ful seen were not as a rule gentlemen.
To compete with them, the gentlemen
fead to change their tactic.
Then women went into business,
sua a there they found that the things
which had been the hallmarks ot the
ady were excess baggage. A low.
Uaald voice, a tack ot self-aasertlve-
stess, a touching dependence upon the
earest masculine representative, an
aloofness from the material things of
Ufa, easily shocked sensibilities, an
overplus ot sentiment, an uawintng
fees to do anything that would make
feer la the least conspicuous, a woman
found did not raise her wages or ad
Vance her position in the working
feree. Besides, she found that the

which they had formerly written son
Mta and dashed off Byrbnlc prose.
The question naturally suggests It
self to our speculative minds, that
nlace people range themselves In
grades, what will be the highest type

most admirable mixture of qualities In

With another guiding star, with the
reelection that very few famous wo

back, a lady meant a person with so
jmtny negations and Inhibitions that

Mrs, Nicholas Longwortb is again
among the leaders of fashion In the
MtJoual capital, and her gowns are
the models of her contemporaries. She
wears the draped garment entirely,
a-nd she is fond ot tissues and of the
knitted silk effects, These gowns are
among the most expensive things of
the season. Mrs. Longworth's knitted
draperies and waists always are cor
cred with gold or sliver beads,' She
teas selected yellow for this season, and
all her gowns are ot various shades ot
this color.

KUelrle Bread Baklasr.
Electric baking ovens have long been
available, but their use has not spread
very rapidly, probably because of the
cost or the difficulty of procuring the
requisite current. In the little Swiss
town of Kerns, "where electric power
Is cheap, the electric baking oven haa
Just been established In a satisfactory
manner. In a furnace less than eight
feet long, one hundred pounds ot
bread. In loaves of one and three
pounds each, can be baked at one time,
and eight bakings can be made In
twelve hours. The cost of the heating
Is a little more than 1 cents a pound
ot bread. Youths Companion.

The Salvation Army waa born In 1863. It lias something to show for
the elevntton ot the downtrodden. One of Its champions says;
"The Salvation Army Cag is flying In fifty-five countries. It has no toss
than 7,600 societies and, excepting In heathen countries, Is self-supporting.
The Salvationists hold services In Iblrty-two languages and are led by IS
000 officers, assisted by 30,000 local officers, men aud women, who earn their
living by the aweat of their browa and give their time and money and work
to the cause. In Its advocacy twenty-five newsapera are published In seven
teen tanguagrs. There are 17,000 baudamen who play aacred muslo without
pay. In Oreat Britain these bands march 34,000 miles a week to attract
men and women to the cross. Over 300.000 hungry and wretched creature ,
are fed by Its Instrumentality. No man, woman or child who has fallen
on the highways or life and very allppery these highways ato and reaches
out a hand and says: '1 want to get up again and want to lead an honest.
Industrious lire,' to every such person there should go out another hand
to lift him up, We have many other branches ot work. In all we have
120 different departments or plans for benefiting people, and the number Is
Increasing constantly.
"Now, what are you doing to lift up the people who are down? the
poor, the drunkard, tho sinful, the hungry, and the poor lassies who have
gone over tha line and who are In tho worst hell this side of the river?
What are you doing for them all? Do you think It Is my special work;
that you have no part In It? Will you help me? Will you help the Salva
tion Army? Will you help with your sympathy and prayer? You may say:
"Wo have our churches and missions to maintain,' What a pitiful condi
tion your city would be tn If you did not have. When you have done all
this there will be something left for the Salvation Army. The Salvation
Army is no longor an experiment. It has passed out of the area of specula
tion. It Is an accomplished fact"
