The question that is troubling the; women of the cilytheHo days is "How shall we carry our registration cards?'' Tliie Is the latest burden that has been imposed upon our already bent! shoulders. A new edict goes forth ! that they must ho carried when and j where wo' go. Kirst' it was register- j ing our age.s and now we arc actually I asked''to carry our certificates. Evi-: dently the man who had the inspira- ] tlon had no idea of ladies' costumes. I We have no hip pocket,^ or vest pock-1 ets -or any other kind of pockets, nor can we go round with our certificate tor living clutched madly in one hand. Besides, even with poc'iiets in this,sen- i son ot wash dresses thai same' valu- i able piece ot paper stands a good chance of meeting an untimely end in the laundry. It i� up (o tho man who was brilliant enough to invent regis-; tration of women to get busy and in-; vent a suitable receptacle for the new burden. 7t Is true these miglu be carried in onr purses, but half ot us don't carry purses and the other half are in the habit ot losing them periodically. We note an ad in the paper tor one already. Besides how annoying to get halt way down to^ a tree lecture and then discover we have left our purses behind. So far there luive been no practical solutions of the vexing problem. It ! has been suggested by a member of tho masculine aex that wo have a pocket made In tlje side of our boots. Bvidontly he thinks wo wear tho same boots every day! Some are of. the opinion that It will be necessary for us lo revert to the old days ot a leather belt and a (diatelalne bag-you remember the kind-with a hook at the waist. Unless rivlted on however, we are still taking chances. Tho most brilliant suggestion so far lias been to hnvo our cnrd pasted on Ihe wrist or back of the hand--bin even that has Its drawbacks. The Inventors are getting busy however. In a Kamloops paper an advertisement was noticed that leather cases for carrying registration curds had juBt been received, made axpi'osaly tor the jmrpose. Tliey would 1 make tinllo a nice addition to evening ' dress and should be ipiite "lo dernier cri." The most feasible solution of al) conies from an American who has Invented a pocket that can bo faston-od to any garment in any place desired. Siirely that would bo satisfactory, as well as lendtag tho variety which is the keynote ot all ladles' costumes.  ' *\ 'I' : > :� ;. ;..;.   '> GENERAL Lieut.

These words come to mind again anil again, when \voinen and war work are consideret}. The. road to Franco beckons Invitins'ily insistently and multitudes would answer the self-given invitation. But the Impulse to "do something" Is not ciunigh. It is not even Important unless it is the crowning glory of a course ot honest, strenUoo.s, lengthy training. The moat glorious' outcome ot this war, for women, iB the fact that It has eliminated completely the superficial woman. She may veuuiiu superficial, liut she cannot remain influential and prominent. It Is amazing when one pauflos lung enough to consider the fact, how (completely tho women agitators and propagaudlata o� five, yours ago have disappeared. Their calling is gone nnd tlioy have, withdrawn from tho feeble limelight of those days exactly as tho tiny summer gnats disappear on the first cold day. To-day tho women who are doing things that count aro women who began doing things thoroughly at the very , commencement ot their career. They never called It "career," by the way, never named it la tact, except til tliemsolveH, and then this proCBBs ot self-dlBcipiine and self-improve menl was, more often than npt, simply called "making a living" or "doing tho very best I can." The world was full of such women whoso one passion was to do tho work in hand in the very best way It could bo done. Advuncomeut, pecuniary gain and huuofit were not even sec-oudiiry. The work was tho tliing! No training wbh too severe if only ex-cellonpe crowned the work. Those women were truly wise vlr-glna, more concerned to keep the r lamps tilled and wicks in perfect working order than about the accoin. plislim6uts that fill loiaure hours. Tliefr call has oouie at last tiiid their lamiitt are needed-every one of them. There la not u woman lu the world to-day who has improved her talents from Ihe time she began to view life eorlously (In girlhood days) hut has a most important mission to perform. The world Is waiting tor her v,'ork. There is lio such thtiig as "blossoming unseen" a^^.lUls ago ot tho world, it one's training baa accomplished all that It. should. The "ehelf" on which women liave resignedly laid thcmselveB tor years Uus been (akon down fttid '6ven the grandmothers are, to-daj", coming in for honorable mention as being re- sponsible for the "loldier lads" in France; Every woman who wag prepared is doing a real part In the world's work and those who preferred Veneer and suiierflcialty to genuine worth of character are being refoaad- admittance, every day, into coveted field* of endeavor. Prepare for work and the task will find the worker! �M. G. Scott, ol New York.has been re-elected president of the Interna-Uonal Typographical Union. 'TROM FACTORY to HOME"' CONCLUSIVELY PROVEN.
