THE RICH COUNTY NEWS. RANDOLPH. UTAH 'Copyright, 1919, by th McClure News paper Syndicate.) Sylvia was a girl of high ideals and "new thought. Her mind was always struggling with beautiful thoughts and philosophy, though it must be confessed right here that although Sylvia's tastes lay that way, her mind was not equal to It. She Just understood such things partly not that Sylvia was stupid. She was really one of the cleverest and most conscientious stenographers in the employ of Ellis & Co., and was fair to look upon ; but that Is all that could be said of her offhand. Madge was a very different type of New thought" was farthest from girl. her mind most of the time, and as for beautiful thoughts and the art of living in perfect harmony with everything and everybody, well, she just didn't think of life In that way. Get all the enjoyment out of everybody and everything and give everybody and everything all the enjoyment of yourself as far as it is within your power, was the code that Madge lived up to unconsciously. She was the life of the office and popular with everybody but Sylvia. Sylvia could not make out Madge at all. At times she seemed and. on unexpected occasions, came out with real philosophy that astounded the other girl, but whatever good impression that made on Sylvia was quickly banished by Madge's use of good-hearte- slang. That was the bugbear of poor Sylvias life. She would just sit back and gasp and hold her head when Madge let loose some of tier new versions of the English language. I should worIll say that it ry, Have a heart, Is and such horrible expressions were mild to some of the crimes against Webster that floated so easily from Madges pretty, laughing lips. The others said Madge was original, but Sylvia could see no other interpretation of such a manner of speech but commonness and utter lack of propriety. It would not have been so bad, Sylvia thought, if Madge had confined her slang to use among her associates, but when she persisted in using it even in the presence of the manager and the president of the firm, that about capped the climax as far as Sylvia was concerned. What did it matter if Madge could express herself better than any other girl in the office just Even when by resorting to slang? Madge was the means of securing an extra twenty-dolla- r bonus for the staff Sylvia could find no excuse for her. The incident Is worth relating. For two weeks every stenographer in the employ of Ellis & Co. worked nights to finish some special work. Of course a promised bonus was looked forward to anywhere from thirty to a hundred dollars was figured on by every girl. Picture their disappointment when the bonus turned out to be a Every girl paltry ten dollars each. (Sylvia included), excepting Madge, got angry and mumbled to themselves about the unfairness of the thing. Not so Madge. The minute she covered the extra ten dollars in her pay envelope she was back to the cashier, and said, in a tone loud enuogli for the manager and president to hear: Well, some people are so mean they would sing through their nose to save the wear and tear on their false teeth. Now, Mr. Ventilator, (the cashiers name was Vanslater, but Madge had persisted in nicknaming him from the first), do you think this a fair bonus? Or, she added, perhaps the firm-i- s giving us our bonus in installments. Madge was never Impudent. Slang from her lips to the ears of anybody but Sylvia sounded perfectly all right. She was gifted with a personality that could almost have put across profanity. Before Mr. Vanslater could volunteer an answer to her surprising question, the manager had come from his office. You are quite right, Miss Wilson, he apologized. There was a mistake this week. An additional twenty dollars will be included in the envelopes next payday. How eucyliptis of you ! It was a senseless expression, but isnt all slang senseless? And then the way Madge said it, it expressed a whole lot. Sylvia just gasped, while the others longed to applaud. Every one of them knew that such an outburst from any one of them would have won instant dismissal, but with the exception of that Madges Sylvia they realized personality counted more with the firm and somehow her slang seemed to make up part of that personality. Poor Sylvia! It was bad enough to have to work with a girl that used slang in about every fifth sentence without having a man who used slang In love with her. Dick Leverys slang was not original It was just ordinary slang that did more to Irritate the object of his affections than all tfct boxes of candy and confessions ef devotion could ever do to pacify her. At first Sylvia believed she cared for Dick, but finally when she found all her admonitions against the use of Common and, to her, vulgar expressions were In vain, she refused to have anything further to do with him. Madge she blamed for the whole thing. Dick worked in the office and thought Madge was too wonderful for anything. It was from her he caught his habit of using slang, Sylvia felt sure. That was another reason for disliking the girl. One who disliked the favorite of the office could not hope to be popular, so Sylvia had to content herself with reading the books of J. Lincoln Treathway on philosophical subjects. Of course, she did not understand them, but there was some consolation in dreaming about J. Lincoln and admiring his handsome face as It was pictured on the flyleaf. There was a real man a man who found the fine things of life and who loathed the low and the barbarous. How her heart beat one day as she was in the private office of the manager taking dictation and she realized that the visitor who entered was no other than J. Lincoln Treathway. Unmindful of her the manager jumped from his chair and ran forward with a hand of welcome extended. Congratulations, Lincoln, old boy. Miss Wilson is the finest girl In my employ, and I know she will make you happy. She has told me all about it. Isnt she wonderful? Lincoln exclaimed enthusiastically. Why, she just seems to have been made for me Her nature and bright ideas of life are just what I need to take me out of myself. Did you ever hear anything so original as her slang? Its too clever, though, to be called slang. Its more like witty phrases. Madge is the most wonderful girl In the world. For a longj long time after she had retreated from the private office Sylvia sat down and thought it over. The realization that her views had been narrow suddenly dawned upon her. Making life worth while and enjoying it to the utmost was what counted, after all. She had ruined her own happiness by a false idea of what real living was. Slowly the tears started down her cheeks. It was Dick. They were Sylvia ! alone in the office and there was a note of sympathy in his tone that seemed to draw her to him. Tearfully she confessed her new disOh, Dick, I dont care whethcovery. er you use slang or swear or anything so long as It is you, she blurted final- HORSE POWER NOT ALWAYS UTILIZED OR , DISTRIBUTED TO GREATEST ADVANTAGE SUITS AND COATS 4- 8- Return to Strictly Straight Line SIMPLE Is Predicted. Variety of Styles and Contradictions Between Paris and New York Expected to Continue. Differing from the general opinion abroad is an American authority who Is emphatic on the subject of width in suits and coats and makes the statement tht a return to the strictly straight line tailored coat is certain. As this comes from one of the houses which are not at all extreme and very well known it carries weight. It is possible, notes a leading fashion correspondent, that the next season will see the same variety of styles and absolute contradictions between Paris and New York that have prevailed for the last twelve months. Paris, quite as much as China, Is a place where they do things by opposites. Having discarded as much clothing from the knee downward as possible, in the warmest of weather they are wearing velvet berets and velvet hats. It is fortunate that there Is a vogue for hats of black tulle and Chantilly or the smart Parisian would be doomed to wear nothing but velvet on the warmest of days unless she resorts to the glycerined paper hat a late innovation. The white velvet is, of course, very much smarter than black. If one must wear velvet on a summer day. Lewis put forth some charming models in leghorn and milan, but they proved too commonplace for the Parisian, who refused to wear them. One of Lewis best liked models is of white velvet In a rolling brimmed sailor shape with a huge pouf of marabou In white also. It had the merit of looking summery, at least in color, and does not look as out of place as did some of the velvet which sound In description a great deal like our own Greenwich yil-laheadgear.

One type of garment that It seems perfectly safe to advise the average woman to purchase now with the comfortable assurance that It may be worn when fall comes around Is the long or blouse. These blouses unfortunately are rather expensive just now, and Mrs. Average Woman will hesitate a little before purchasing a garment about which there has been so much discussion and which has so long struggled for general recognition. Blouse makers have announced that they have confidence In the continued vogue of this type of blouse, now that American women have finally agreed to give It a real tryout, and because of this confidence they are bringing out, or planning to bring out In the fall lines, long blouses that will be sold at reasonable figures. Therefore the woman who does not care to wait until fall for her blouse may watch for special and bargain sales and lay In as many as she likes without fear that the fall will find the garment laid on the shelf by Dame Fashion. This inclination of blousemakers to stabilize what has np to the present season been a decided novelty seems to indicate clearly that the long blouse has arrived and that It is here to stay. over-the-ski- rt over-the-skl- rt Bananas were the chief article of export from Nicaragua to the United States in 1918.
