A LESSON IN ECONOMY.
Milly Harrington was only eighteen
wlmn he came to live ;i! Holly Lodge,
Very young to ho married, .-aid the
gossips of the neighborhood; Mill
younger to ;is..uuw all the rare and
responsibilities of the household. And
there were not lacking divers doleful
prophets, who declared, with cyi
. r ii ,i
tip and imoiiI lis drawn down, that Mrs.
Harrington never would "get on" with
fie old colonel.
"He i. so fastidious," .-.aid one.
"So diil'ienlt to Mm," s;id ,-inother.
"Mi i I-al is jmpo: siMv high!" de

Hut to tlieir surprise -perhaps a

Colonel Harrington's Keen, hie" eyes
regarded his ., sharply, for a
'Do you think Milly is addicted to
either of those pernicious practices';'"
"They come natural to all women,
don't theyy" said Dudley, shrugging
"Not to all!" said the colonel.
And in his secret soul he wondered
it Dudley was really worthy of such a
jew el as Millicetit, his w ife.
So the weeks went on, and Milly
stood bravely to her helm, until, otiu
bright October day, the colonel, chanc
ing to pass the low kitchen window-,
where the hop-vines made a screen of
moving shadow, looked smilingly in to
where his daughter-in-law was at
"Have you got a glass ot cool milk

Milly brought the milk promptly.

asked the colonel. "In itself, as an

some hesitation. "Hut I'm a little

"You arc si good little girl," said the
father-in-law. "Hut we must'nt let
you work too hard."
"Papa," said Milly, with downcast
lashes, and a deep pink shadow creep

"Well," said the colonel, encourag-
"That I should like to ask you for a
little money," faltered Milly.
"Money !" echoed Colonel Barring-
tmi, in surprise. "Docsn t initliey give
you all you want ?"
Once more Milly hesitated.
"He wentsto know what everything
is for," said she. "He thinks fifty
cents is too much for ribbon, and he
says bonnet-frames ought to be had
cheaper than a quarter of a dollar, and
he declares it's all noncense to buy silk
gloves when cotton will do as well.

"No, papa !" said Milly. lifting
prettily -arched brows. "Dudley says

and that a wife should always receive

F.ven in these enlighteiied days
there are people who affect to "look
down" upon women w ho are obliged to
work for their own livelihood. A'--
cording to tlieir code it is far more
' creditable for a woman to depend upon
, the grudging bounty of relatives and I
'; friends - to be, in fad, a pauper in all j
but name than for her to go out into
the business world and win a liveli
hood for herself. A girl may accept
costly gifts from her male acpiain
j tanccs on the most llimsy pretexts and
not lose caste, but if she enters a fae
' tory, store or office, the doors of society
i iire closed against lmr. This applies to
; all the industries and to all but a few
..1 1 1... ...... r..uui.i.iu l'or the irreat lio.lv
of working women society has not only
snubs or at best condescending patron
age. Contempt for those of the sex
who work for wages is deliberately fos
tered. In a private school in New
York the young girls when instructed
in deportment are warned against
walking on the west or east avenues
at six o'clock or thereabouts, and ad
jured never to appear on the street
with ungloved hands, and all this that
they may not be mistaken for working
girls. Could snobbishness go further?
It is not to be wondered at that in
ortler to escape so disgraceful st fate as
that or being compelled to support
themselves, girls should resort to stil
manner of unwomanly smd indelicate
maiHCiivrcs to secure rich husbands. If
a girl is without money, and if she may
not earn it, she has no choice but to
marry it, and if the spectacle of a girl
pitying court with matrimonial intent
to a rich man is repulsive, the blame
for the unwomanly exhibition should
bo laid at the door of society, which
scorns the woman who works.
