ONE DOLLAR A YEAR
Shall a Girl Work to Support Her
Lazy Brothers ?
Dorothy Dix, in Atlnntn Georgian.
Among my acquaintances is a splen
did young woman who holds a responsi
ble position in a big business house.
She receives a good salary, enough to
enable her to dress well and indulge
herself in many luxuries, hut she iH al
ways poorly clad, scrimps on her lunch
and car-fare, and has got the reputation
among her co-workers who observe how
she looks at a nickel before she lets it
it go as being little short of a miser.
The girl secs the contemptuous
glances with which her associates re
gard her parsimony, and they stab her.
like so many knives, for she is in real
ity the most generous soul alive. She
would like to be free-handed. Also,
being a woman, and young and good-
looking, she would like to have pretty
clothes, and go to the places of nmuse-
ment whose doors she never enters be
cause sho can't afford jto spend a
cent an self-indulgence.
And the reason why?
The girl's mother, wilhout perhaps
realising what a crime she is commit
ting, is deliberately making her daugh
ter a slave to support three lazy broth
ers. And many other mothers are do
ing the same thing.
In this particular home not a dollar
comeB into it that is not earned by the
girl. She pays the,rent, and for the
lights, the heat and the food. The
mother has no income and furnishes
nothing, yet she persists in thinking of
the home, and says that "while I have
a roof over my head my boys shall have
a place to stay,"
Every morning (he girl gets up early
und goes to work, leaving her three
able-bodied brothers calmly snoring, se-
euro that when they choose to arise,
along toward noun, mother will have
some special dainty prepared for them.
And mother thinks that thm is ull right.
She makes u thousand excuses for their
idleness, and considers that her (laugh
ter is very mean und hard-hearted
when she objects to supporting a bunch
of idlers and would like some of the
money that shu earns to spend upon
And the girl is helpless because she
wants to take care of her mother, and
shu can’t lake cure of mother without
supporting her good-for-nothing sons.
Of cuurBo, this girl, und every olher
woman who supports u strong and
healthy mun, is an easy mark that the
tool-killer will ussuredly get some line
day. She getB neither thanks nor ha’
pence, for the mun who deliberately
sits down und lets a woman take cure
of him iB invariably a yelluw cur that
bites the build that feeds him.
Therefore, I would advise this young
woman and everyone confronted with
the aume problem to Bimply shut their
doors on their touting brothers, und
force them to go to work. In that way
they will not only rid themselves of a
burden that they ure under no obliga
tion to bear, but will do the one thing
that is possible to make a self-respect
ing and decent man out of an idler.
Laziness is a disease that requires
heroic remedies to cure, and the best
antidote for it ever devised is simply to
chuck a man out into the world where
he must either work or starve. Hunger
has done more to ullay that tired feel
ing with which so many men are born
than any other one thing in the world.
As long as a loafer knows that he’s
got u warm place to sit, a good bed to
sleep in and three square meals a day
to eat, he isn't going to wear himself
out looking for wink, and lie's going to
be mighty particular about the sort of
job be takes. Hut if he knows that
only his own labor stands between him
and want, he'll get right down to the
real pursuit of a job, and in work
he'll find the independence that makes
him a man.
The case of this girl who is forced by
her mother to support her three litzy
brothers is not an isolated one. 1 have
known many other such ones myself,
and I get hundrt ds of letters from
working girls telling exactly the same
story and making the same complaint.
They love their mothers, they feel a
high sense of duty and desire to divide
their earnings with their parents, but
they feel it a hatdehip that they have
to support brothers far more able to
work than they are.
These girls are right. It is most
cruelly unjust that their mothersahou d
rob them of their hard-earned wages to
give the money to lulling and often
drunken sons, and the girls should have
the courage to rebel und refuse to sub
mit to such treatment. The one who
earns the money that supports a home
is in law the head of it, and the girl
who pays the bills has a right to say
woo shall live in that home und eat the
food that she buys. Certainly no ais-

ter is under any obligation to slave her
self to death to buy whiskey and cigar
ettes for an idle man, even though he
is mother's darling and mother thinks
that she ought to.
It is a strange peversity of mother
lovo that makes a woman wil'ing to
sacrifice her daughters to her sons, but
that appears to be the way that nature
built a mother's heart. When a girl
goes to work mother thinks that she
should turn over her pay envelope to
her, and that she should help with the
housework when she is at home, but
she never dreams of her son turning
over his pay envelope to her or doing
the dishes after supper, and if he even
pays his board ahe goes about bragging
about what a good boy he is.
But becauae mother is willing to sup
port her loafing son is no reason why

Style of the Exposed Breast.
Dr. W. Ii. Crumpton. In Mountain (Ala.) Home.
I do not know its technical name. I
have understood it was all the go of
evenings in "the best society;" but it
has of late come out of its hiding and
boldly flaunts itself on the streets.
Where on earth did it come from?
Have the mothers ceased to advise their
daughters? Have the fathers no au
thority in their homes? Why don’t the
editors ridicule it as they did the nar
row, slit shirt? They called that, im
modest. What do they call this? Why
don’t the doctors intervene to save
the 'lives of the girls? Have they
concluded it is good for their health?
If so, why not recommend it to the
married women and to the men?
1 can see why the preachers are si
lent. Some of the dear girls are in the
congregation, caught with the goods on
them. Besides, the mammas and papas
of the girls are there and might take
the preacher's remarks n9 personal.
The preacher can preach about "Train
up a child in the way he should go and
when he is old he will not depart from
it, ” but that refers to the boys only,
you know. He might quote without
comment -better to read without lift
ing his eyes from the book: "That wo
men adorn themselves in modest ap
parel, with shame-facedness and sobrie
ty, ' ’ but he dare not say more.
When the style first appeared it was
in the summer, and some bulieved it
was for comfort; but we are nowin
the second winter, and the exposure is
greater, "The men like it, ” one says.
1 would iiute to believe that was the
reason for the style. Yes, some men
do like it —bad men, lustful men. Gen
tlemen are surprised. Good men are
shucked and grieved.
Maybe an old man will be excused
for raising his voice against it, even
though the chances nrc it will not be
heeded. This is the way much of his
preaching all through his life has been
treated; but, ull the sums, he will keep
up the preaching, and will do so to the
God bless our girls, and save them
from the snares set for them.
Sleep a Medicine.
The cry for rest has always been
louder than the cry for food. Not that
it is more important, but it is often
harder to obtain. The best rest comes
from sound sleep. Of two men or wo
men, otherwise equal, the one who sleeps
best will be the most moral, healthy, and
efficient. Sleep will do much to cure
irritability of temper, peevishness and
uneasiness. It will restore to vigor an
| overworked brain. It will build up and
make strong a weary body. It will
cure a headache. It will cure a broken
spirit. It will cure sorrow. Indeed, we
might make a long list of nervous and
other maladies that sleep will cure.
The cure of sleeplessness tequires a
good clean bed, sufficient exercise to
produce weariness, pleasant occupation,
good air and not too warm a room,
a clean conscience and avoidance of
stimulants and narcotics. For those
who are overworked, haggard and
nervous, who pass sleepless nights, we
recommend the adoption of such habits
as will produce Bleep; otherwise, life
will be short, and what there is of it
There is an old proverb, “home is
home, be it ever so homely,” but home
should not be made any more homely
than necessity requires. The family
fireside should be associated, in the
minds of the young people, not only
with stern requirements of duty, but
with a sense of pleasure. It is not
enough to drill our sons with a se
vere discipline, >n all the formalities of
rigid virtue. They should be taught
not only how to keep straight, but how
to bend, since it is not in the power of
nature to undergo a perpetual tension.
Provision must be, made at home for
relaxation as well as work, for pleas
ure as well as duty. If such provision
is not made there, it will be, as it is too
often, sought elsewhere.

Biddlecomb was holding his son in
“My boy,” he said, "I am filled with
anxiety when I think that you will soon
make choice of a wife.”
"I have not done se yet, father," the
young man replied. "What sort of a
wife would you suggest?”
The older man looked around cautious
"My son," he said, "if your father’s
advice is worth anything to you, let
me urge you to seek for a woman who
hasn’t the independence, the positive
ness, the general characteristics of
your mother. ” He was interrupted at
that moment by a light footfall and
realized that his beloved helpmeet had
entered the room. "No, my son,” he
continued, "do not hope to find another
woman like your mother. Such para
gons are rarely, if ever, duplicated."
No mother should allow her home to
be merely a hoarding-house where the
members of the family eat and sleep,
while she voluntarily, year after year,
consents to be nothing more than chief
cook and maid of all work. Rather let
home he a dwelling-place where time
out of school and business hours may
be spent profitably.

A Tip to the Old-Timer.
Once in a while, when we feel strong
enough and patient enough to go out
soliciting advertising from some of our
friends and neighbors who seldom break
into print, we Bre handed something
"Now, tell me. what is the use of
spending money for advertising? I have
been here for years, and everybody in
the country knows what I sell.”
True, brother, there still exist a few
isolated specimens of the old-fashioned
merchant who ask that question, and
really believe there is no answer to it.
It is hard to answer. In fact, it is hard
to speak at all.. A fellow feels like
bringing up a 42 centimetre gun and
shooting a little twentieth century gin
ger into the man who asks it.
Yes, Mr. Merchant, you have been
here twenty years, but everybody in
the country does not know what you
s^ll. They know that you are here, just
as they know that there is a big tree at
the side of the road a mile out of town,
or that somewhere in town there is a
lock-up; and when they come into town
they drive right by your place, just as
they drive past the big tree or the cala
boose, and they pull up in front of the
store of the fellow who has not been
here twenty years, but is doing a big
ger business than you are, just because
he advertises and makes good what he
says in his ads. You can do that big
business, too, Mr. Old-Timer, any day
you get rid of the idea that because you
have been here a long time everybody
is thinking about you.
This does not refer to one particular
merchant, but to one and all of the non
