TASTE IS A WONDERFUL ASSET
The Tault-Finding Fault
By Hildegarde Hawthorne.
1 -W are none of us perfect there's no
argument on that score but we have our
degrees'" groaned May Brown -whose sister-in-law
had been visiting her for the
past month. "And I feel as though I'd
been up against the third decree from the
moment Ljiiy struck thb house to the
instant of her departure."
"What's been the matter?" asked the
" Fault finding! That's what I've come
to think is the worst fault at all and 1
ought to know for there has been one
solid month of it in this little home of
wine. 1 daresay I've done some myself
in the iast but nevermore. I've learnt
that valuable lesson anyway."
"Is Lizxy a confirmed fault finder?" in-
quired the lifelong friend with a certain
amount of natural curiosity. "She's sucfc
a quiet little thing."
"Of course. I'm finding fault thia mla-
ute" Mrs Brown went on "but It's tfot
to the point where I sl.nply must explode
to somebody and that somebody is usually
you. Yes liny seems quiet enough and
she isn't the noisy sort any ttrne. But
she has a perfect genius for finding some-
thing to pick on. .
"It made me understand that kind of
hunted look George had when I Urst knew
him. He'd Just come away from home
then and ot course ho had been found
fault with every minute of his life up to
that one. 1 never got to know tils people
at all. though 1 remember now tluit when
1 went to make them a little visit before
George and 1 got married 1 notu-ed that
an awful lot of quarrelling went oo. But
they were prettv busy showing me the
citv in the week 1 was with therm and
didn't have time to do their best."
"Maybe it's only Ussy who lias the
"No George flared up one event.ng. and
said a whole lot in a short time and I
gathered from some vt his remarks that
Lixzv s mother and her sisters had It
about equally developed.
"Uziv couldn't let the least thing go
bv without mentioning some fla.w. even
though she was a visitor. Maybe it was
the wav George pronounced some word.
Mayb it was the way 1 had walked past
her in the hall without speaking. And
when she wasn't finding fault with one of
us. she was remembering reasons for find-
ing fault at her own home."
"What was It made George flare up?"
asked the lifelong friend.
Mrs. Frown chuckled.
"You know how it is sometimes." she
remarked. "It's when you really are in
the wrong that you make your stand.
George had promised to take us out In
the car and we were to be ready at 1
sharp. Lizzy is always late but I'd
hustled her. and we were both on time
waiting with all our things on so warm
we eould hardly breathe. And of course
something or other had busted and
George was an hour late. It wasn't really
his fault but it was trying. Anyhow It
"So she started right off. telling George
that he always was inconsiderate and
selfish. She kept that up quite a while
and then she turned on the car and be-
gan to pick holes in it.
"That's where George rose In his might.
I guess he'd been saving up right along
for Lizzy got all that was coming to her.
"Ob. it was a nice pleasant little ride.
ms you can guess. And Lizzy kept quiet)
that feels like a load of lead on your
head. But before we got home she was
finding fault with the roads and with the
other cars that passed us or that we
passed and with our way of having dinner
fn Sundays at 3 o'clock. I suppose it's

THEM -ID !
THE WOMAN WHO COMMANDS our greatest admiration la not the
woman who with unlimited means at her disposal has beautifully and
artistically furnished her home.
If one has any taste whatsoever it isn't so very difficult to furnish a
house attractively when there is no necessity for one to weigh the cost
of this thing or that thing but can go ahead lavishly spending any amount
to "achieve the desired results.
Then too the woman who doesn't have to strictly economise may engage
the services of a professional Interior decorator and furnisher.
The woman who really commands our genuine admiration Is the woman
who with extjremely slender funds flora which to draw has had to resort
mostly to her own excellent taste and resourcefulness obtaining wonderful
results with little expenditure of money. '
Some women have such a generous fund ot that thing we call ingenuity
that they seem to know always just how to obtain the very best possible
results. They seem to know Instinctively what colors nicely blend and just
what combinations of colors and furnishings are harmonious. They know
just what arrangements will prove artistic and at the same time even more
important what arrangements will create a homelike atmosphere. It is an
art and the woman who possesses it is to be congratulated for she is In
possession of one kind of riches greatly worth having for it will always be
possible for her to have attractive surroundings no matter where she may
be placed. .
' On page 51 of the March issue of the Ladies' Home Journal is a page!
of illustrations of some very unattractive and homely pieces of furniture
transformed by the taste and cleverness" of a very clever woman Into most
attractive and lovely pieces.
It Interestingly exemplifies the possibilities of the homeliest furnishings
if one just has the keen eyesight which discovers the possibilities.
So many unattractive rooms could with very little expenditure of time
or money be transformed into rooms harmonious artistic restful appealing.
The magazines of today afford a liberal education to the woman who
is ambitious enough to take advantage of the opportunities within her reach.
It isn't so much a matter of income as a matter of taste when It comes
to making a home a place of beauty for much may be accomplished on the
slenderest sort of a bank account if one Just possesses the knowledge of
what Is and is not good in bouse furnishings. Aqd this knowledge can be
acquired by careful observation of the well furnished homes we see keen
scrutiny of the magazines supple-
mented by occasional visits to the
wonderfully beautiful modern furni-
ture and house furnishing stores.
FASHIONS FOR AMERICANS
Every mother knows that when she
starts on her spring sewing the small boy
needs as many stitches as the little girl
and. while their ages run between 2 and
and 5 years the little frocks and bloom-
ers are cut from the same pattern. The
same is true of rompers so tliat this
pattern will do for ail our small chil-
dren under a years of age. and for your

C'liver Twit suits before them or those
quaint long trousers and vei y short coals
that one sees in old pictures and on little
Knglish boys. Little American boys are
somewhat independent as to what they
will wear and all of them do not like the
old fasiiioned suits.
This suit may be made of any light
weight of wool and serge will be found
eminently practical for it. A dark blue
serge trimmed with white braid or with
red will look charming on either a girl
or boy and there are braid ties with
tassels such as are shown in the picture
that are used a good deal now.
All the cotton materials of which chil-
dren's play clothes and rompers can be
made are suitable for this pattern but it
is not intended for thin fabrics of any

"How do you know? Who told you
so?" be demanded.
"Nobody told us; we Just feel it
Peter" cried the Merry Little Breexeg
and kept on singing as they danced.
"Huh!" said Peter. "Feeling isn't

is for that would mean Mistress
Spring Is on her way too and she

Ground. if I could see some Bign's."
"Use your eyes Peter! Use your eyes! There are flowers in bloom
already for we've -seen them. What better sign that Mistress Spring is
coming do you want?" chanted the Merry Little Breezes.
Peter Jumped a foot off the ground. "Say" he cried "are you crazy?
Look at this snow all over the Green Meadows! Do you eipect me to believe
any such story as that?"
"We don't care whether you believe it or not it Is so" cried the Merry
Little Breezes dancing around Peter and throwing snow in his face.
Welcome Robin's on the wing;
Very soon you'll hear him sing;.
With this the Merry Little Breezes danced away across the Green
Meadows toward the Green Forest leaving Peter to stare after them as If
quite sure they really were as crazy as they seemed.
"Of course It isn't true" muttered Peter. "The very Idea of saying that
they had seen flowers in bloom when the ground is still frozen and there is
snow everywhere! I don't believe a word of it."
Nevertheless Peter couldn't get it out of his head that the Merry Little
Breezes had seen something that he hadn't Thoughts of the glad spring-
time began to chase each other through his funny little head. Two or three
ines he found himself listening for the soft voice of Winsome Bluebird.
One after another his friends and neighbors who had been sleeping all winter
popped Into his headand. he wondered when each would wake up and if he
would be the first to greet them. There were Striped Chipmunk and Johnny
Chuck and Bobby Coon and Unc' Billy PoSsum and Old Mr. Toad and Grand-
father Frog and Spotty the Turtle and Digger the Badger and Mr. Blacksnake
and bis cousins and Buster pear. Which one would be the first to rub the
sleepy-sand out of hli eyes and come out to see what bad happened during
the long months he had been asleep. Just thinking about them and of the
joy and happiness which sweet Mistress Spring would bring with her gave
Peter a funny feeling which little by little he .recognized as the very feeling
that the Merry Little Breezes had spoken of the feeling that Mistress Spring
really and truly was on her way."
"Huh!". exclaimed PeteY just as he had before and shook himself. But
he couldn't' shake oft that feeling. Then he remembered what the Merry
Little Breezes had said about slgis and using his eyes. "Huh!" said be again
"I guess If there was anything to tee Pd see 1t! There's nothing the matter
