Jane laying aside the book she
had been reading and turning
her wlJe-opened eyes very searching!?
"What a funny question Jane my
dear." I replied. "Whatever makes you

Just put down.
"Then what?" I asked again.
"Oh I don't know dear" she answered
cradling her little pink chin in the palm
of her hand and gating very wistfully
and thoughtfully out of the window.
"You do know Jane I can always tell
by that wide-eyed expression of yours
when something Is bothering you and I
wish you'd tell me It Is the only way I
"Oh It's nothing terribly serious" she
laughed; "It Is just a little something
that concerns a very good friend of mine
and a friend of my friend's and It has
made me think tliat'B all."
'It Is a very serious little 'think' Jane
dear. Judging from that wrinkle between
."Really?" she laughed. "I'll tell you
what I've been thinking about of the dif-
ferent Ideas that persons entertain in
regard to the meaning of what consti-
tutes friendship. To me friendship like
love. Is not selfish. To my friend 1 give
the very best tliat la In me always of
companionship sympathy understanding
oh chiefly understanding in return I
ask what that friend wishes to give.
The minute we exact too much from a
friend the minute we force a friend to
feel under obligations the minute we as-
sume to control a friend's scheme of life
just that minute something very beauti-
ful Is lost absolutely lost. l.ove and
friendship can never be forced and every
mother's daughter if she Is wise knows
this. That is the only real friendship
the friendship that gives and Rives and
understands and asks In return only
what Is given freely and spontaneously."
"How true that is. Janeyou're a wise
little girl do you know it?" 1 asked her.
The wide-opened eyes smiled into mine
as she replied: "No. dear I'm not wise
at all If I were I should he able to help
this friend of mine out of a very sorry
tangle a tangle that Is masquerading
under the name of friendship love or
whatever one Is pleased to call It. My
friend's friend one bright day. did my
friend a great fn vor. So far so good
It was a nice and generous thing to do
something any other friend would have
rejoiced to do had the existing circum
stances made it possible. Unfortunately
we do not all stand always in a position
to do a favor when a favor is most need-
ad. As 1 said it was a beautiful thing
to do but and hereby haups the tale.
Poor friend has never been allowed
one shining second to forget the favor
It has been made a heavy obligation
growing heavier snd heavier as the days
go by and the modern Shylock methods
of the friend's friend In exacting and de-
manding has spoiled what might have
seen a very pretty bit of kindness.
When the chains grow heavy all real
friendship Is dragged out It Is only a
poor imitation and generally used as a
means toward an end. Iion't you think
I couldn't deny the bright-eyed small
lady for her Ideas were so truly my very
"You've reasoned it out rather well.
Jane dear" I told her "for when we al-
low any one to feel uncomfortably and
too deeply obligated to us we are elim-
inating the prettiest thing in friend
"Yes we are indeed" agreed the small
lady "to be a friend means to give of
the best that Is In us and to ask In re-
turn only what comes freely and gladly."
And your friend?" I inquired.
"Ia dragging the chains to the music
of Shylock the Modern and wearing an
expression that Is well It beggars de-

A fancy of the moment is to use two
colors in the dainty ribbons run in mi-
lady's lingerie. Exquisite rosettes and
fancy knotted bows or ribbon show pink
and blue in combination again pink and
a delicate maize color or violet and yel-
low. Sometimes one xolor Is hardlv more
than suggested by a few loops of baby
ribbon in the center of the wider ribbon
of another color; again there will be al-
ternate bows of the two colors.

While seventeen self-starters were ex-
hibited at a l'aris automobile show in

the self-start r liaw claimed any Kt'nt'ral
attention. Tliis year they are n'eting

Another important step in automobile
designing progress has been the develop- !
tnent of the all-kinds-of-weather cars I
coupes limousines and berlines. While
the limousine and the lectric coupe have
been used for some yenrs. the big luxu-
rious berline in which the chauffeur is
enclosed as well as the passengers has
secun d a considerable amount of favor
and the demand for tho Inside-driven
small cars has brought out a large num-
ber of such coupes designed to i arry
from two to four passengers. Scarcely a
manufacturer Is overlooking the demand
for these machines and some of them
are going so lar as to build cars w hu h
may be converted from louring cars to

the new engines an efficiency which their
predecessors did not possess. A number
of sleeve and rotary valve engines have
been brought out. which overcome the.
faults of the poppet valve and most en-
gineers believe that this represents the

Automobile engineers are constantly on
the lookout for new ideas In the way of
power transmission from the engine to
the wheel. One system which is meet-
ing with popular favor abroad and with
some favor in the I'nited States Is known
as the worm gear which Is us d in lieu
of the bevel gtar. It is claimed for the
worm gear that it has an advantage in
the nois lessness ef Its operation w bile
It gives equally as good results as the
bevel gear In other respects. A not her
gear which is meeting with some pop-
ularity is known ilk t he fiict in drive.
This consists of two wheels mounted on
shafts at right angles to one another. The
rim f the one w lit el is pressed against
the tlal side surface of the other and is
driven by the motion of the latter. The
tirt wheel is mounted so that It can
slide back ami foith on the snaft when
actuated by a lever and as it is moved
toward the edge of the other wheel the
speed Is increased moved toward the
center of the wheel. the-sped is cut down
and the power proportionately Increased;
moved past the circumference and the
motion of the car is reversed. The fric-
tion drive has t he advantage that there
is no gearing to he broken by careless
operation of the speed control.

Juvenile America as any one could wish

he fell a victim to an epidemic of tonsll-
itls. From that time on the weakened throat

Ihe first touch of thf wind brought sick-
ness to the child.
She consulted one doctor after another;
slio experimented with the suggestions of
friends all to no avail. At last a cousin
from the far Northwest came to visit the
woman and seeing the chjd's condition
prescribed a very simple remedy. She told
the unxlous mother to keep her child's
throat bare and to bathe It In icy water
every morning and after every meal. A
garble made from a solution of blcarbon-
a'e of soda and hot water was also sug-
gested. T!:e mother trled this plan hopelessly
