Housekeeping and Homemaking—The
C om panion.
Good Housekeeping and hom em aking,
says this most readable journal, ought
to m ean th e sam e th in g . U nfortu n ately
too often they do not.
Good housekeeping of course goes a
long way tow ard com fort. I t helps im
m ensely in th e ease and joy and re
fresh m en t of family life to have meals
well cooked an d well served, to know
t h a t th e things you like will be set be
fore you as you like th em . The surprise
of a novel, d ain ty dish soothes tired
nerves an d m akes little causes of pos
sible friction eeem insignificant and far
away. Also, a careful housewife’s eense
of regularity and order is invaluable.
W hen you have tra in s to catch and bus
iness a p p o in tm e n ts to m eet, you are
glad to have breakfast ready for vou and
to know t h a t d in n e r will be on th e table
as the clock strikes. And tidiness is i n
finitely restful to th e spirit. You keep
your office clean, or see t h a t is kept
clean; you would be a s h a m e d to have it
otherw ise. I t is a trial som etim es to go
hom e and find things trailin g where
they ou g h t not to be, d u s t in corners,
sym ptom s of cobwebs, th e c h ild re n ’s
frocks b uttonless and th e ir hair d is
th o u g h t t h a t avoids these little d ra w
backs is an acceptable contribution to
th e serenity of life.
B ut good housekeeping, like oth er
good qualities, has its corresponding
Well-cooked food m u s t be
eaten a t th e right m o m e n t to be a p
preciated. A p unctual cook who takes
pride in her work desires a punctual
family, d em a n d s it, is likely to insist
upon it. To a busy m an, whose eq»
gagem ents ca n n o t always he m ade to
accord with th e clock, t h a t precise order
of meals gets to have som e terrors,
especially if neglect of it brings cold
looks a n d s h a r p speeches. O rder in
general is a splendid t h in g ; b u t order
too rigidly enforced m ay grow to be a
burden. J o h n n y som etim es sighs for a
place w here he can throw’ his h a t in to
any old corner w ith o u t being reproached
for it. And Bessie wonders w h e th e r in
heaven it m ay not be possible for a girl
to leave things about until she feels just
like picking th e m up again.
A well-kept house is n o t alw ays a
charm ing hom e. S u n sh in e and smiles
m ake h o m e; a m erry h e a r t and a ready
welcome, no m a t t e r th o u g h m eals are
cold and shoes dusty an d h an d s not so
w hite as they should be. A m oth er
who is a little to le ra n t of d ir t a n d a
little careless in cooking, bu t w ho enters
w ith her whole soul in th e lives of her
husband a n d child re n , is m ore loved
and cherished th a n one w ho serves
meals neatly an d regularly b u t who is
cold at hea rt. The ideal undoubtedly
is to m ake a well-kept house a perfect
h o m e ; b u t let th e hom e come first and
bring th e o th e r after, if you can.

W ith a g unny Hack a b o u t 1»is waist
vnd a big knife in his h a n d Paladini,
millionaire fish king of San Francisco,
plies hia tra d e each day ju s t exactly as
does any of his employes.
Paladini, except for his millions hears
►■mail resem blance to th e generally ac
cepted idea of a t r u s t m agnate. C utting
fish is messy business. Fine traiuien
has no p a rt in it. B ut P aladini cares
not a w hit w h a t people th in k of his
H e has am assed a million
slicing fish and selling it shrewdly.
And he is going to continue doing it.
A lexander P aladini was born in A n
cona. Italy, in th e early forties. Left
as th e su p p o rt of a widowed m o th e r and
four sisters a t th e age of eight, th e fu tu re
fish king went to sea.
After working ab o u t th e A driatic he
late r visited ports th ro u g h o u t th e world.
He landed a t New Y ork in 18(if>. His
wages were w ith h eld because he left
th e sh ip on A m erican soil. Paladini
was aix m o n th s on th e trip aro u n d Gape

a few dollars. I.ater lie bought a sm all

his real es ta te and fishing boats.

E d i t o r ’s Note— Few m en know when to
q u it th e game. H ere is p o rtra y e d a c h a r
acter t h a t should have long ago left tho
slicing of fish to some one less fortunate,
th a t he, too, m ig h t a c c u m u la te some of
th e world’s goods. Ttiis m a n from
Italy bus accum u lated a fo rtune and
lost the m eans of know ing how to e n
joy it. He is no more nor less t h a n a
m achine—an yone can be a m achine.
Thu successful m an is th e one who ac
cum ulates a respectable com petence
w ithout Htarting a growth of bristles on
his hack. How few they are. On every
hand we find th e m iserable rich, frayed
to a fta/./le, because w ith th e a c c u m u la

It frequently occurs t h a t t h e o th e r fel
