BY THE WAY
RUTH about some movie actors seems to be unconsciously expressed in a bit of correspondence from Los Angeles published in a theatrical weekly, reading as follows: "Director says the best way to test an actor is to go camping with him. He has just returned from such a trip, and puts the O. K. on the man who plays the leading rôle in his new production, thus: 'He's a fine dishwasher.'"
As the war caused the world's finan cial center to shift from London to New York, so it changed the shipping center. Hamburg before the war had the greatest tonnage of any European port; now, according to the Liverpool "Journal of Commerce," a struggle is going on between Rotterdam, Antwerp, and Hamburg as to which shall play the leading rôle in the future carrying trade; in this contest Rotterdam so far appears to have the advantage. Among many other improved harbor appliances, Rotterdam possesses thirty-five floating grain elevators, which raise the grain by suction from the hold of a vessel and squirt it into the Rhine barges, weighing it automatically during the process.
The fatal lure of the edelweiss was responsible, according to recent reports, for the death of nearly a score of persons in the Alps during the past season. The plant grows on steep and rocky slopes and often on overhanging precipices, and the temptation to "go just a little farther" to secure the blossom takes the climber to an insecure place and he pays with his life the penalty for

his daring. Altogether 127 persons lost their lives in Alpine climbing this year. No American was in this list; two Britons were victims; most of those who lost their lives were venturesome Swiss who went out unattended by guides.
During the early days of the Russian Revolution, a contributor to the "Atlantic" says, robberies were frequent in the streets of Petrograd. "One lady whom I knew," she says, "was coming home one evening wearing a long coat of black Persian lamb. Two men stopped her and asked her if she wished to buy a fur coat. She replied that she did not require to, as she had the one she was wearing. 'Why,' they said, 'that is the very one we mean;' and as she did not have the money to redeem it, they took it from her."
Some astronomical bulls perpetrated by authors are enumerated in an article in the San Francisco "Chronicle." Zane Grey makes the new moon rise in the east just after sunset; Rider Haggard has a full moon rising in the west soon after sunset; Marryat wrote of a waning crescent moon seen in the early evening; while Dickens "out-Joshuaed Joshua when, in 'Hard Times,' he made a star stand idle in one spot for seven days and nights." This was to comfort a man who fell into a disused mine. shaft, and who says, in the novel: "Often as I come to myself and found it shining on me down there in my trouble, I thowt it were the star as guided to Our Saviour's home. I awmust think it be the very star."
Among the humors of the domestic servant problem a subscriber asks space for this: The lady was interviewing an applicant, and asked her whether the family which she had just left was a
small one? "No'm," was the answer; "they was three."
One of the most popular of the comic "strips" that have become a feature of most of the daily papers is the one that celebrates the doings of Mutt and Jeff. This is reproduced in 380 different newspapers, we are told by "The Cartoonist." The "balloons" or chatterings of this precious pair are, it is said, translated even into Japanese. While children are often seen poring over the pages that contain these comic cartoons, their author is quoted as saying: "The child doesn't buy the paper, while the adult does. I aim at the adult only."
Another cartoonist, speaking of boy humor, has this to say, as quoted in "The Cartoonist:"
Kids aren't humorists; they're just funny. If you see a youngster trying to do anything at all. he'll do it with all available sincerity. So sincere, in fact, that he appears funny. Then you laugh at him-he hears you, and good-night! He tries to show off; tries to be funny, and fails miserably. No, kids aren't humorists, they're just funny in their sincerity.

IOLET CREIGHTON was proud of her husband. And she had reason to be. Six years ago he was at the very bottom of the ladder. Now he was almost near the top. One more decisive stepand they would be ready to step across the boundary, into the world of wealth, power and influence.
No wonder Ted was elated when he brought the good news home. "Well, Vi, it has come at last!" he beamed. "Crothers has left and I'm to have his place. I'm actually going to be one of the vice-presidents of the company."
Violet was duly surprised-and delighted. "The wife of an officer of the company," she laughed. "Sounds good, doesn't it ?" and together they planned for the wonderful days to come, of the big things he would accomplish and the charming functions of which she would be hostess. Yet beneath their happy planning was a subtle, unexpressed fear which both realized-yet which both ignored.
An Invitation Is Received
The next evening Ted brought even bigger news. They were to dine at the Brandon home-actually to be the guests of William Brandon! Violet knew how happy Ted must be, how he had dreamed of and longed for this very opportunity. Yet, when he told her of the dinner invitation, there was a sudden tug of pain at her heart.
Oh, she was happy enough, and proud that Ted had reached his goal. But were they ready for itwould they enter their new social sphere gracefully and with a cultured charm, or would they make a blundering mess of it?
"But do you think you should have accepted, Ted ?" she queried. "You know how elaborately the Brandons entertain, and how-well, formal they are. Why, I don't even know whether it is correct for me to wear an evening gown!"
Ted was silent for a moment. I couldn't possibly refuse," he said slowly. "We'll simply have to see it through. Mr. Brandon wants to have a long chat with me before the final arrangements are made. But I'll admit I'm kind of worried myself. Now, do you suppose I may wear a dinner jacket or must I wear full dress?"
For the first time the Creightons realized that there was something more than business status if they were ever to be real successes-they realized that personality, culture and social charm played an important part. And they felt keenly their lack of social knowledge, their ignorance as to what was correct and what was incorrect.
But then, something happened. Violet noticed that Mrs. Roberts had glanced at her husband and frowned ever so slightly. She wondered what was wrong. Perhaps it was incorrect to cut lettuce with a knife. Perhaps Ted should not have used his fork that way. In her embarrassment she dropped her knife and bent down to pick it up at the same time that the butler did. Oh, it was humiliating, unbearable! They should never have come. They didn't know what to do, how to act.
Mr. Brandon was speaking again. Ted was ap-
The Creightons Suffer Keen
Violet, sitting opposite, listened quietly to the
"I say, Creighton, are you listening to me or not?" With a start, Ted turned toward his host. He had not been listening. He had not been paying attention. How could he, when directly opposite him, before all the guests, his wife was taking olives with a fork! Violet glanced up and saw the look of horror in his eyes. She crimsoned, became embarrassed. But though Mr. Brandon seemed mildly surprised and Mrs. Roberts seemed very near the verge of smiling, the incident was smoothed over and conversation began once again.
For Ted. the evening was irretrievably spoiled. He knew that the others were watching Violet and him, reading in their embarrassment their lack of social knowledge. condemning them as ill-bred and uncultured. But when the ladies rose from table to retire to the drawing-room, and he rose to follow, he knew by the amused glances of the others that they had hopelessly failed, that they had socially disgraced themselves.
He wasn't surprised, then, when Mr. Brandon remarked, after the other guests had left and Violet had stepped into the next room for her wraps "I'm sorry, Creighton, but I've decided to consider Roberts for the vacancy. I need a man whose social position is assured, who can meet men of any position on their own footing. The executives in our company must be able to make a good impression wherever they go, and they must
An Opportunity is Lost
At home that night, Violet refused to be comforted. It was all my fault-1 have spoiled your best chance," she cried. But Ted knew that he was as much to blame as she.
"Another chance is bound to come," he said, "and we'll be ready for it. I'm going to buy a reliable, authoritative book of etiquette at once."
Ted and Violet read parts of the Book of Etiquette together every evening. It revealed to them all the mistakes they had made at the Brandon home and told them exactly what they should have done. It was positively a revelation! By the time they had finished that splendid book they knew they would ever after be well poised and at ease even in the company of the most brilliant celebrities!
The Importance of the Book of Etiquette to YOU
It was only when the famous Book of Etiquette was in her hands, and she saw how easy it was to acquire the social knowledge, the social poise and dignity they needed, that Violet was happy again.

It Is This Way
F the people and the Administration believe that the great Harding vote was to "scrap" the League and likewise any effective association of nations, then scrapped they will be, and behind the splendid achievement of disarmament there will be no enforcing power. But if President Harding and our national leaders come to know or to believe the truth that the vote was to go in one or the other Americanized, then we will go in. It is the American way to yield to the will of the majority. But if the mandate is misunderstood, all goes wrong. That is why "The Great Deception, by Samuel Colcord, "Bringing into the Light the Real Meaning and Mandate of the Harding Vote as to Peace," is not a post mortem. It deals with the most practical and vital question of the houra question upon the right decision of which may hang peace or war, the future of civilization and the immeasurable interests of mankind. By a masterful marshalling of irresistible facts it establishes the truth, as Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall says, "beyond the peradventure of a doubt." William Allen White says, "It tells the truth which American statesmen must accept." Buy it to-day. $1.50 Everywhere or of the Publishers
