knows the pretty tale of the charming little creature imposed upon by ugly elder sisters who were envious of her fresher IVw children are there who have not luourneil over the way in which the poor little maids beauty was obscured by her coarse attire until it was onlv seen as shines the moon in clouded and who have not sorrowed at the thought of the soft blackened aud rough ened by hard work of the shapely disguised in ugly And among the incidents of the trans migration of this grimy grub into a gorgeous butterfly is there any thing mere attractive than the episode of the tiny crystal slipper all remember how it fell off as she fled from the and we used to opine largely that even this fairy covering must have been too large for the graceful foot it But we road further that after the ugly sisters had done all they could to squeeze one of their ill shaped feet into the little glass when Cin derella tried it it lilted her per fectly We were forced then to the conclusion ihat the loss of the wee shoe was a bit of fairy rather than an for bow could the prince ever have found true love without this clow to guide him How the little dears heart must have throbbed the day after the

it But it takes true moral cour albeit of a generally unappreciated for a woman with a gener ous understanding to wear square toes and extensive A writer on society topics in a New York paper recently argued that a com mon sense shoe was not the most com She claimed that in such a boot the foot slipped thus pro ducing corns and and that a woman who wore a closely well shaped boot was more at ease physically and for she could step out in cross a spring on a car or run up and down elevated road stairs with the happy sense that her feet looked so well she need ta no pains to conceal Possibly the one length to which the makers of rational boots have gone has modified public taste concerning shoes of the opposite extreme and which might with equal force be styled One seldom sees on the worn by

like tha fragile young lady of eight months whose friends in Brooklyn hardly ex pected to see her alive in For a whole she I have lived on a farm near Coopers and picked hops almost from dawn to dusk every day except The farmer was glad to hire me formy board and Four other girls and two young men were en gaged on the same We were all more or less acquainted with each other in so it was not

been obliged to work side by side with the paid many of whom were pure and To them the farmer used language that seemed to me to be sometimes un necessarily To us he spoke more but this was the only dis tinction he He was as careful in seeing that we turned in our full com plement of hops every evening as lie was to get the value of his money from the men aud women to whom he paid their wages at
