Every Intelligent Person Should
Learn how to Write!
More than a million people are
employed in the publishing busi-
ness in the United States, and
aU of them “had to begin.'1
They are dropping} out every day,
and some one must take their
place. There must be writers
for The Newspapers, Magazines,
and Moving Pictures.
They pay more for the same
class of service 'than most of the
professions. With a table, a
chair,paper and a typewriter you
can begin now; and you do not
need to give up your present oc-
cupation or employment. Even
if you do dot wish to take up
journalism as a profession, there
is no better mental training than
learning to write.
The man or woman who writes
is automatically thrown in touch
with the big people who are
shaping the destiny of the state
and nation,, and with the big
things that are taking place in
the new development of the
The fundamental are carefully
and simply arranged in our Cor
respondence Course of Instruc
tion. A Washington correspond-
ent who has written for every
class of publication during the
past twenty-five years has ar-
ranged the work,and is in charge
of the course. Money back if

model that has alw.ays been a
great favorite. It, is generally
becoming - and may be .made at
home with results as good as if
fashioned by a tailor. Fine blue
serge,; soutached, or trimmed
with a design in gold braid or
galoqn, is most often seen in the
bolero models; often the upper
portion of the pleated or gathered
skirt is .of taffeta and taffeta
covered buttons are also used
with good effect..
In both the suitings and the
soft silks being fashioned into
frocks and suits for southern
wear and early spring, the popu-
larity of stripes and checks is
quite as marked as it was last
season; the combination of black
and white and soft gray is also
notiseable. The _ soft wool suit-
ings in checks ranging from the
very tiny pattern to the aggres-
sive checker- board designs are
all good, relieved with a touch of
vivid green, rose, or orange;
black taffeta and moire are also
effective ; for ; trimmirig these
suits and tailored frocks. The
striped silks are usually combined
with a plain satin or silk, in a
tone that harmonizes with or is
an effective contrast to the pre-
dominating color in the striped
material. Sheer fabrics, crepe
Georgettes, chiffon-cloth, silk
voiles, and the various other
transparent fabrics promise to
be as good for sleeves, collars
a-.d other trimming purposes as
they have been for the past few

Buck’s Stove
Blouses of chiffon-cloth,chiffon
and similar materials, dainty and
becoming to a degree, were nev
er very durable. It was really
heartbreaking when one had a
particularly becoming and rather
expensive blouse, to have it be
gin to pull out and wear under
the arms and at the elbows after
only one or two wearings. This
was partially done away with
when cotton net was introduced
for lining these waists; this sea-
season we have the net blouse it-
self, often lined with net or chif-
fon cloth. These waists are de-
lightfully sheer and they have a
wonderful wearing quality.
Often the net blouse is trimmed
witha linen cluny, or another

colorings are sometimes used at
the closing of collar, or down the
front, forming unusually attrac-

The softly colored blouse of
crepe Georgette has by no means
taken a back seat because of the
popularity of new net favorite;

anything, in prettier and more

the fifame was covered smoothly

outer edge of the brim and at
the top of the crown. The only
trimming was a severely straight

the hat was smart and tailored.
Another pretty small hat was
made half of straw braid and
half of changeable taffeta, the
taffeta being draped over one

high upstanding loop on the side.
Imitation Goura in a soft shade

seen, and some hand embroider-
