"No, not at all," he told her. 'But
It's awful; simply awful! I know you
arc a true friend, and thut's some sort
of comfort."
"And always shall be," she gulped.
"You must try not to feel hurt. Vou
know my father is a very peculiar man
and has an awful will, and nobody was
ever so obstinate."
Then Alan's sense of the great Injustice of the thing rose up within him,
and his blood began to boll. "Perhaps
I ought to take my name on* your
card," he said, drawing himself up
slightly. "If he were to hear that 1
talked to you tonight, he might make
lt unpleasant for you."
"If you do, I shall never—never forgive you," she answered In a voice
that shook. There was, too, n glistening in her eyes as lf tears were springing. "Wouldn't that show that you
harbored ill will against me, when I
am so helpless and troubled?"
"Yes, it would, and I shall come
back," he made answer. He rose, for
Hlllhouse, calling loudly over his
shoulder to some one, wns thrusting
his bowed arm down toward her.
"I beg your pardon," I said to Dolly. "I didn't know they had called the
march. We've got some Ice cream hid
out upstairs, and some of us are going
for it   Won't you take some, Bishop**,"
"No, thank you," said Alan, and the;
left him.
look the facts In the face."
"You mean"—
"Thnt lt will bo stupid, childish Idiocy for either or both of you to let
this thing spoil your lives."
"I don't understand you."
"Well, you will before I'm through
with you, aud I'll do you up brown.
Mrf.
Alan treated this with sn Indulgent
smile. He did not dislike Hlllhouse,
but he did not admire him, and he had
never quit* liked his constaut attentions to Miss Barclay. But lt was an
acknowledged fact among the society
girls of Darley thst If a girl refused to
go out with any young man In good j
standing It was not long before she !
was left at homo oftencr thau was
pleasant. Dolly was easily the best
looking girl In tho room—not perhaps
tbe most daintily pretty, but she possessed a beauty whlct strength of
character and Intellect alone could givo
to a face already well featured. Even
her physical beauty alone was of that
texture which gives tho beholder sn
agreeable sense of solidity. She was
well formed, above medium height,
had a beautiful neck and shoulders,
dark gray eyes and abundant golden
brown hair.
"May I see your card?" asked Alan.
"I canio early to secure at least one."
At this Frank Hlllhouse burst out
laughing, and she smiled up at Alan.
"He's been teasing me all evening
about the predicament I'meln," she explained. "The truth ls, I'm not going
to dance at all. Tbe presiding elder
bappeued in town today on his way
through nnd Is at our house. You
know bow bitter he Is against church
members dancing. At first mamma
said I shouldn't come a step, but Mr.
Hiilhousc and I succeeded In getting
up a compromise. I can only look on.
But my friends are having pity on me
und filling my card for what they call
stationary dances."
Alan laughed as he took the card,
which was already almost filled, and
wrote his name lu one of the blank
i-paces. Some one called Hlllhouse
away, and then an awkward silence
fell upon them. For the first time
Alan noticed a worried expression on
her face.
"You have no bnttonhole bouquet,"
she said, noticing his bare lapel.
"That's what you get for not bringing
a girl.   Let me make you one."
"I wish you would." he said thoughtfully, for as sh* began to search among
her flowers for some rosebuds and
leaves he noted again the expression
of countenance that had already pus- |
-Jed him. |
"Since you ore so popular," he went
on, his eyes on her deft fingers, "I'd
better try to make another engage- '
ment. I'd as well confess that I cam*
In town solely to ask you to let me
take you to church tomorrow evening." - j
He saw her start. She raised her
eyes to his almost Imploringly, and
then she looked down. He saw her
breast heave suddenly as with tightened lips she leaned forward to pin tho
flowers on his cost Tho jewels In her
rings flashed under his eyes. There
was a delicate perfume In the air
about her glorious head. He had never
seen her look so beautiful before. He
wondered at her silence at just such a
moment. The tightness of her lips
gave wny, and they fell to trembling
wben sbe started to speak.
"I hardly know what to say," sbe
began. "I—I—you know I said the presiding elder was at our house, and"—
"Oh, I understand," broke In Alan;
"that's all right Of course, use yonr
own"—
"No, I must be plain wltb you," sbe
la-nice in, raising a pair of helpless, tor-
"/ hardly know what to say," the began.
tured eyes to his. "You will not think
I had anything to do with It In fact,
my heart Is almost broken. I'm very,
very unhappy."
He wns still totally at sea as to the
en use of hor strange distress. "Perhaps you'd rather not toll me et oil,"
he sulci sympathetically. His tone never had been so tender. "You need not
you know."
"But It's a thing I could not keep
from you ion:; anyway," she Raid tremulously. "In fact, It is due you—nn explanation, I mean. Oh, Alan, papa has
taken up the Idea that we—thut we
like each other too much, and"—
The life and soul seemed to lears
Alan's face.
"i understand," he hoard himself
saying: "he does not waut me to visit
you any iii.ic."

CHAPTER VII.
LAN made his way along the
wall, out of the track of the
promenaders,  into the office,
anxious to escape being spoken to by any one. But here several jovial   men   from   the   mountains   who
knew him Intimately gathered around
him and began to make laughing remarks about hip dress.
"You look fer the world like a dirt
dauber." This comparison to a kind
of black wasp came from Pole Baker,
a tall, heavily built farmer, with an
enormous head, thick eyebrows and
long, shaggy hair. He lived on Bishop's farm and had been brought up
with Alan. "I'll be derned ef you
ain't nimble on yore feet, though. I've
seed you cut the pigeon wing over on
Mossy creek with them big, slrnppln'
gals 'fore you had yore sights as high
as these town talks."
"It's that thar vest that gits me,"
said another. "I reckon It's cut low
so you won't drup saft victuals on It,
but I guess you don't do much eatln'
with that collar on. It don't look like
yore Adam's apple could stir a peg under lt."
With a good natured reply and a
laugh he did not feel, Alan hurried out
of the office and up to his room, where
he had left bis lamp burning. Bay-
burn Miller's hat and light overcoat
wero on the bed. Alan snt down In
one of the stiff backet' split bottom
chairs and stared straight in front of
him. Never In his life hnd he suffered
as he was now suffering. He could see
no hope nhead; the girl he loved was
lost to blm. Her father had heard of
the foolhnrdluess of old man Bishop
and, like many another well meaning
parent bad determined to save his
daughter from the folly of marrying a
penniless man who hnd doubtless Inherited his father's lack of Judgment
and caution.
There was a rap on the closed door,
and Immediately afterward Rayburu
Miller turned the knob and came lu.
Ills kindly glance swept tbe face of
his friend, nnd be said, with forced
lightness;
"I don't want to bore you, old mau,
but I just had to follow you. I saw
from your looks as you left tbe ballroom that something was wrong, and
I am afraid 1 know what lt ls. You
see, Captain Barclay Is a rough, outspoken man, and he made a remark
the other day which reached me. I
wasn't sure It was true, so I didn't
mention It; but 1 reckon ray Informant
knew what ho was talking ubout."
Alan nodded despondently. "I asked
her to go to church with mo tomorrow
night Sho was awfully embarrassed
and finally told me of ber father's objections."
"I think I know what fired the old
devil up," said Miller.
"You do?"
"Yes. It was that mistake of yonr
father. As I told you, tbe colonel Is
as mad as a wet ben about the whole
thing. He's got a rope tied to every
nickel he's got, and he Intends to leave
Dolly a good deal of money. He thinks
Frank Hlllhouse Is Just the thing. He
shows that as plain as day. He noticed how frequently you came to see
Dolly and scented danger ahead and
simply put his foot down ou It, Just
ns fathers have boon doing ever since
the flood. My dear boy, you've got a
bitter pill to take, but you've got lo
swallow It like a man. You've reached
a point where two roads fork. It Is
for you to decide which oue you'll
take."
Alan made no reply. Bayburti Mil.
ler lighted a cigar aud began to smoke
steadily.
"It's none of my business," Miller
burst out suddenly, "but I'm friend
enough of yours to fool this thing like
tho devil. However, I dou't know
whnt to say. I only wish 1 knew how
far you've gone Into It."
Alan smiled mechanically.
"If you can't look at me nnd sec how
far I've gone, you are blind." be said.
"I don't  meun that," replied Miller.
"I  was wondering how far you  had
committed   yourself—ob,    hang   It!—
made love and ull tbat sort of thing."
"I've never spoken to her on the sub.
Ject," Alan informed him gloomily,
"Good, good!   Splendid!"
Alan stared In surprise.
"I don't understand," he said.   "Rh*
knows—that Is,  I  think  she  knows—
how I feel, and I hove hoped that"—
"Never mind about that," Interrupted
Miller laconically. "There Is a chance
for both of you If you'll turn squnre
around like sensible human beings and
"it's none of my business," Miller burst
out suddenly.
Thero are simply two courses open to
you, my boy. One is to trent Colonel
Barclay's wishes with dignified respect
and bow and retire Just as any European gentleman would do when told
that his pile was too small to be considered."
"And tbe other?" asked Alan sharp.
ly.
"The other ls to follow In the footsteps of nearly every sentimental fool
that ever was born and go around looking like a last year's bird's nest or,
worse yet, persuading the girl to elope
and thus angering her father so that
he will cut her out of what's coming
to her and wbat Is her right, my boy.
She may be willing to live on a bread
and water diet for awhile, but she'll
lose flesh and temper In the long run.
If you don't make as much money for
her as you cause her to lose, she'll tell
you of lt some day or, at least, let yoa
see It, and that's ns long as it's wide.
Y'ou are now giving yourself a treatment in self hypnotism, telling yourself
that life has not and cannot produce
a thing for you beyond that particular
pink frock and yellow head. I know
how you feel. I've been there six different times, beginning with a terrible
long first attack and dwindling down
' as I became inoculated with experience till now the complaint amounts
' to hardly more than a momentary throe
' when I see a fresh, one in a train for
an hour's ride. I can do you a lot of
good if you'll listen to mc. I'll give you
the benefit of my experience."
"What good would your devilish ex«
perience do mc?" said Alan impatiently.
"It would fit any man's case if he'd
only believe It   I've made a Btudy of
love.   I've observed hundreds of typical cases and watched marriage from
Inception through protracted illness or
boredom dowu to dumb resignation or
sudden death.   1 don't mean that no
lovers of the Ideal, sentimental brand
arc ever happy after marriage, but I
do believe that open  eyed courtship
will beat the blind sort ull hollow and'
that In nine cases out of ten, tf people
were mated by law according to the
judgment of a sensible, open eyed jury, they would be happier than they
now are.   Nothing ever spoken is truer
than  the commandment,  'Thou Shalt
have no otber God but me.'   Let n man
put anything nbove the principle of
living right, and he will be miserable.
The man who holds gold as the chief
thing iu life will starve to death In its
cold glitter,  while n  pauper In rags
will have a laugh tbat rings wltb the
music of lmmortul Joy.   In the same
way the man who declares that only
one woman Is suited to him ls making
a god of her, raising her to a seat that
won't   support   her   dead,    material
weight.    I   frankly  believe that  the
glauiour of love Is simply a sort of Insanity that has never been correctly
named nud treated because so many
people have been the victims of It"
"Do you know,"  Alnn burst In almost angrily, "when you talk that way
I think you are off.    I know what's
the matter with you—you havo simply
frittered away your heart, your ability
to love and appreciate a good woman.
Thank heaven, your experience has not
been mine!   I don't see how you could
ever be happy with a woman. I couldn't
look a pure wife In the face and remember all the flirtations you've Indulged In—that ls, If they were mine."
"There   you   go,"   laughed   Miller.
"Make it  personal.    That's  the only
way the average lover argues.   I am
speaking In general terms.   Let me finish.     Take   two   examples—first,   tbo
ebitp cmzlly  In  love,  who faces  life
with the red rug of his Infatuation—
bib girl.   No parental objection, every-
t'u'iig smooth and n carload of silverware, a clock for every room In ths
house,   They start out on their honeymoon,   doing  the chief  cities at  th*
biggest hotels and the theaters In tho
three dollar seals.    Thoy soon tire of
themselves and lay It lo the trip.   Every day they rake nwny n handful of
glamour  from  each  other till,  when
they reach home, they have come to
the conclusion tlmt they nro only human,  nud not  the  highest order at
that   For awhile they have a siege of
discontent,  wondering  where  it's  all
gone.    Finally the  man  Is forced to
go about  his work,  and the  woman
gels lo making things  lo go on tbe
backs of chairs and trying to spread
her trousseau over the next year, and
they begin to court resignation.   Now,
If they bad not bad the glamour attack  they  would  bave  got  down  to
business sooner, that's all,  and  they
would hnve set n better example to
oilier plungers.    Now  for the second
illustration:    Poverty    on    one   side,
boodle  on  the   other;   more  glamour
lban In other case because of the gulf
between.   They get married; they hnvo
to.   They've Inherited the stupid Idea
that the Lord is at the bottom of It
und   that  the  glamour  is  IiIh  smile.
Like the other  JOUple, their eyes arc
finally opened to the facts, and tbey
begin to secretly wonder what It's all
nbout.    The ono with the spondullcs
wonders harder than the one who ban
none.   If the man has the money, be
will feel good ut first over doing so
much for his affinity, but if be has nn
eye for earthly values—and good business men have—there will be times
when he will envy Jones, whose wife
bad as many rocks as Jones. Love
and capital go together like rain and
sunshine; tbey are productive of something. Then tf the woman has tbe
money and the man hasn't there's
tragedy—a slow cutting of throats.
She Is irresistibly drawn with the rest
of the world into the thought that she
bas tied herself and ber money to an
automaton, for auch men are Invariably lifeless. They seem to lose the
faculty of earning money—in any otber
way. And as for n proper title for tbe
penniless young idiot that publicly advertises himself as worth enough, in
himself, for a girl to sacrifice her
money to live wltb him—well, the unabridged docs not furnish it. Jack Ass
in billboard letters would come nearer
to lt than anything that occurs to me
now. I'm not afraid to say it, for I
know you'd never cause any girl to
give up her fortune without knowing
at least whether you could, replace lt
or not."
Alan arose and paced the room.
"That," he said as he stood between
the lace curtains nt the window, against
which the rain beat steadily—"that is
why I feel so blue. I don't believe
Colonel Barclay would ever forgive
her, and I'd die before I'd make ber
lose a thing."
"You are right," returned Miller, relighting bis cigar at the lamp, "and
he'd cut ber off without a cent I know
him. But what ls troubling me Is that
you may not be benefited by my logic.
Don't allow this to go any further.
Let her alone from tonight on, and
you'll find In n few months that you
are resigned to It, just like the average
widower who wants to get married six
months after bis loss. And wben she
Is married and has a baby she'll meet
you on the street and not care a rap
whether her hat's on right or not. She
will tell her husbnnd all about it and
allude to you ns her Ur.st, second or
third fancy, ns the case may be. I
have fuith In your future, but you've
got n long, rocky row to hoe, nnd a
thing like this could spoil your usefulness nnd misdirect your talents. If I
could see how you could profit by waiting, I'd let your flume burn unmolested; but circumstances are against us."
"I'd already seen my duty," said
Alan In a low tone as he cume away
from tbe window. "I have an engagement with her later, nnd the subject
shall be avoided."
"Good man!" Miller's cigar was so
short that he stuck the blade of his
penknife through It thnt be might enjoy it to tbe end without burning bis
lingers. "That's the talk! Now I
must mosey on downstairs and dance
with that Miss Few-clothes from Rome
—the one with the auburn tresses tbat
says 'delighted' whenever she ls spoken to."
Alan went back to the window. The
rain was still beating on It. I'or a long
time he stood looking out into tbe
blackness. Tho bnd luck which had
come to bis father had been a blow to
blm, but its later offspring had the
grim, cold countenance of death itself.
He had never realized till now that
Dolly Barclay was so much a part of
his very life. For n moment he almost
gnve way to a sob that rose and struggled within him. He sat down again
and clasped bis bands before him In
dumb self pity. He told himself that
Rayburn Miller was right; that only
weak men would act contrary to such
advice.   No, It was over—all, all over.
CHAPTER  VIII.
AiFTER the dance Frank HII1-
I house took Dolly home In ono
of the drenched and bespattered bucks. The Barclay
residence was ono of the best made
and largest In town. It was an old
style southern frame bouse, painted
white, nnd hnd white columned verandas on two sides. It was In the edge
of tbe town and had an extensive lawn
In front and almost a little farm behind.
Dolly's mother had never forgotten
thnt she was once n girl herself, and
she took the most active Interest In everything pertaining to Dolly's social
life. On occasions like the one just
described she found It Impossible to
sleep till her daughter returned, nnd
then she slipped upstairs and made
the girl tell all about it while she was
disrobing. Tonight she was more alert
and wideawake than usual. She opened
the front door for Dolly and almost
stepped on the girl's heels as sbe fallowed her upstnlrs.
"Wns It nice?" sbe asked.
"Yes; very," Dolly replied. Reaching her room, she turned up the low
burning lamp and, standing before a
mirror, began to take some flowers out
of ber hair. Mrs. Barclay sat down on
tbe edge of the high posted mahogany
bed and raised one of her bare feet
nnd beld It In her hand. She was a
thin woman, with iron gray balr, and
about fifty years of age. She looked
as if she were cold, but for reasons of
her own she was not willing for Dolly
to remark It.
"Who was there?" she asked.
"Oh, everybody."
"Is that so? 1 tbougbt a good many
would stay nwny because It was n bad
night, but I reckon tbey are as anxious
to go ns we used to be. Then you all
did hnve the hacks?"
"Yes; thoy had tbe hacks." There
was a pause, during which one pair of
eyes wus fixed ratber vacantly on the
Image In tbe mirror. The otber pair,
full of impatient Inquiry, rested alternately on the Image and its maker.
"I don't believe you bad a good
time," broke the silence in a rising,
tentative tone.
"Yes; I did, mother."
"Then what's the mntter wltb you?"
Mrs. Barclay's voice rang with Impatience. "I never saw you act like
you do tonight—never in my life."
"I didn't know nnythlng was wrong
with me, mother."
"You act queer; I declare you do,"
asserted Mrs. Barclay. "You generally have a lot to say. Have you and
Frank bad a falling out?"
Dolly gave her shoulders a sudden
shrug of contempt
"No; we got along as well as we ever
did."
"I thought maybe he was a little
mad because you wouldn't dance tonight, but surely he's got enough sense
to seo tbat you oughtn't to Insult
Brother Dlllbeek tbat way when he's
visiting our bouse and everybody
knows what he thinks about dancing."
"No; he tbougbt I did right about it"
llcgan to lake some flowers out ofherhair.
said Dolly.
"Then what In the name of common
sense ls the matter with you, Dolly?
Y'ou can't pull the wool over my eyes,
aud you needn't try it."
Dolly faced ubout suddenly.
"I reckon you'll sit there nil night unless 1 tell you all about lt," she said
I sharply.    "Mother,  Alan Bishop was
] there."
;    "You don't say!"
;    "Yes, and asked me to let him take
; me to church tomorrow evening."
"Oh, he did?"
"Yes; and, us I didn't want father to
Insult him, I"—
"Yon told him what your pa said?"
"No; 1 Just told him father didn't
want  me to  receive  blm nny   more.
Heaven knows, that was enough!"
"Well, that was the best thing for
you to do." Mrs. Barclay took a deep
breath as lf Bhe were Inholing a delicious perfume. "It's much better than
to have him plunge in here some day
and have your father break out like
he doos In his rough way. Wbat did
Alan say?"
"He snld very little, but be looked it.
You ought to bave seen him. Frank
came up Just nbout that time and Invited me to hnve some lee cream, and
I had to leave bim. He was as white
as a sheet. He had made an engagement wltb me to sit out a dunce, and
he didn't come In the room again till
that dance wns culled, aud then be
didn't even mention It He acted so
peculiarly I could see It was nearly
killing him, but he wouldn't let me
bring up the subject again. I came
near doing it, but he always steered
round it."
"He's a sensible young man," declared Mrs. Barclay. "Any one can
see that by looking at him. He's not
responsible for his father's foolhardy
venture, but lt certainly leaves him
In a bad fix as a i_-.air.ving man. He's
had bad luck, and he must put up with
the consequences. There are plenty of
girls who have uo money or prospects
who would be glad to have bim, but"—
"Mother," broke In Dolly ns If sho
had been listening to ber own troubled thoughts ratber than her mother's
words, "he didn't net ns If he wanted
to see me alone. The other couples
who had engagements to talk during
that dance were sitting In windows
nnd out of the way corners, but he
kept me right where I wns and was aa
carefully polite as If we had Just been
Introduced. I was sorry for him unc-
mnd at tho same time. I could have
pulled bis ears."
"He's sensible, very sensible," said
Mrs. Barclay In a tone of warm admiration. "A man like that ought to
get along, and I reckon be will do well
some day."
"But, mother," snld Dolly, her rich,
round voice rising like n wave and
breaking in her throat, "ho may never
tJilnli olio"* mo nnv uinre."
•'Well, mat really would be best,
denr, under the circumstances."
"Best?" Dolly blurted out. "How
can you say that, when—when"—
"Dolly, you are not really foolish
ubout blm, are you?" Mrs. Barclay's
face dropped Into deeper seriousness.
Dolly looked nway und was silent
for a moment. Then she faltered: "I
don't know, mother. I—I'm afraid if I
keep on feeling like I do now I'll never
get over It"
"Ah, but you'll not keep on feeling
like you do now," consoled the older
woman. "Of course, right now, Just
nfter seeing how hard he took It, you
will kind of sympathize witb blm and
want to help blm; but that will ail
pass away. I remember when I wns
about your age I bad a falling out
wltb Will Despree, n young man my
father didu't like because bis grandfather had beeu nn overseer. And, do
you know, I thought I would actually
kill myself. I refused to cut a bite and
threatened to run it way with Will. To
this day I renlly don't know what I
would have done If your grandfather
hadn't scared htm nway wltb a shotgun. Will kept writing notes to me.
I wns afraid to answer them, but my
father got hold of one and wcut after
blm on n fast horse. Will's family
hoard wbat wus up, nnd they kept
him out In the swamp for a few days,
and then thoy Bent him to Texas. Tbe
whole Despree I'l.mlly took lt up aud
tnlkcd scaud'lous about us."
"And you soon got over lt, mother?"
nsked Dolly almost In a tone of dismay.
"Well," said Mrs. Barclay reflectively, "Will acted tbe fool so terribly. He
wasn't out lu Texas three mouths bo-
fore lie sent back n marked paper with
an article in it about bis engagement to
the daughter of n rich man who, we
found out afterward, used to keep a
livery stable; then I reckon hardly any
girl would keep caring for n boy when
bis folks was telling such lies about
her family."
Dolly was staring studiously at the
speaker.
"Mother," she asked, "don't you believe In real love?"
Mrs. Barclay laughed ns lf highly
amused. "I believe in a different sort
lo the puppy love I hud for that boy.
Then after thnt there was another
young man that I thought more of, if
nnythlng, than 1 did of Will, but he |
wus as poor us Job's turkey, and my j
folks wus all crazy for me and your pa,
wbo I'd never seen, to get married, i
held out against the idea, just like you
are doing with Frank, 1 reckon, but
when your pa come wltb his shiny
broadcloth coat and spotted silk vest-
no, It was satin, I think, with red spots
on lt—and every girl In town was crazy
to catch him and there wa.. no end of
reports nbout the niggers he owned
nnd his high connections—well, as 1
say, it wasn't a week before I was
afraid he'd see Joe Tinsley and hear
about me and him. My father was in
for the match from the very jump, and
so was your pa's folks. He put up at
our house with his nigger servant nnd
didn't want to go about town much.
I reckon I was pleased to have him
pick me out, and so we soon fixed it
up. I.only, he only hnd to mention Joe
Tinsley to me nfter we got married to
make me do anything he wanted. To
this day be throws him up to me, for
Joe never did amount to anything. He
tried to borrow money from your pa
nfter you was born. Tbe neighbors had
to feed his children."
"But you loved father, didn't you?"
Dolly breathed, lu some relief over
what she thought wns coming.
"Well, I can't say I did," snld Mrs.
Barclay. "We hat^ n terrible I hue getting used to one nnotber's ways. You
see, he'd waited n good while nnd wns
some older than I was. After awhile,
though, we settled down nnd now I'm
awful glad 1 let my fnther manage for
me. You see, what your pa bud and
what my father settled on me made
us comfortable, aud lf a couple ls that
it's a sight more than tbe poor ones
are."
Dolly stood before her mother, close
enough to touch her. Her face wore
au indescribable expression of dissatisfaction wltb wbat sbe bad heard.
'■Mother, tell me one thing," she snld.
"Did you ever let either of those boys
—the two that you didn't marry, 1
mean—kiss you?"
Mrs. Barclay stared up at her daughter for nu Instant, and then her face
broke Into n broad smile of genuine
amusement She lowered ber heud to
her knee and laughed out,
"Dolly Barclay, you are such n fool!"
she said, and then she laughed again
almost Immoderately, her face In ber
lap.
"I know what that means," slid
Dolly, in high disgust. "Mother, I don't
think you can do mc any good. You'd
better go to bed."
Mrs. Barclay rose promptly.
"I think I'd better, too," she said. "It
makes your pa awful mad for me to nit
up this way. I don't wnnt to hear blm
rail out like be always does wben be
catches me at lt."
After her mother hnd gone Dolly snt
down on her bed. "Sbe never wns In
love," she told herself. "Never, never,
never! And It's n pity. Sbe never could
have talked that way if she had really
loved anybody as much as"— But Dolly did not finish wbnt lay 'on her
tongue. However, wben sbe had drawn
the covers up over her the cold tenrs
rose In her eyes nnd rolled down on ber
pillow ns she thought of Alan Bishop's
brave and dignified suffering.
"roor fellow," she said. "Poor, dear
A.au!"
CHAPTER IX.
THERE is n certnln class of
individuals tbat will gather
around n man In misfortune,
and It differs very little, if it
differs at all, from the class that warms
Itself In tbe glow of a man's prosperity.
Horses were hitched to tho fence
from the front gnte nil the wny round
to tbe side entrance. The mountain
people seemed to have left their various occupations to subtly enjoy the
spectacle of a common man like themselves who had reached too far nfter
forbidden fruit and iny maimed and
torn before them.
Tbelr disapproval of tbe old man's
effort to burry Providence could not
havo been better shown than In the
failure of them all to comment on tbe
rascally conduct of the Atlanta lawyer.
They even chuckled over that part of
the incident. To their minds Perkins
was a sort of faroff personification of a
necessary evil, wbo, like the devil himself, wns evidently created to show
mortals their limitations.
The Rev. Charles B. Dole, a tall,
spare man of sixty, who preached tbo
first, second, third and fourth Sundays
of each month in four different meeting houses within a day's ride of Bishop's, came nround as the guest of tbe
farmhouse as often as his circuit would
permit He was called the "flgbtln'
preacher" because he had had several
fearless hand to bnnd encounters with
certnln moonshiners whose conduct he
had ventured to call ungodly because
unlawful.
Ou Ibe second Saturday after Bishop's mishap, as Dole was to preach the
next day at Rock Crest meeting house,
be rode up as usual and turned bis
horse Into the stable and fed hlin with
bis own bunds. Then be joined Abner
Daniel on tbe veranda. Abner hnd
seen him ride up und purposely burled
bis beud In bis newspaper to keep from
offering to take the horse, for Abner
did not like the preacher "any to
hurt," ns he would hnve put it.
Dole did not enre much for Abner
cither. They hud engaged In several
doctrinal discussions lu which the
preacher had waxed furious over some
of Daniel's views, which he described
as decidedly unorthodox. Daniel bad
kept his temper beautifully uud bnd
tbe appearance of being amused
through lt all, und this Dule found
harder to forgive than anything Abner
hud said.
"You all have bad some trouble, I
beer, sence I saw you last," snid tbe
preacher as he sat down and began to
wipe bis perspiring brow with a big
handkerchief.
"Well, I reckon It mought be called
that," Abner replied ns be carefully
folded bis newspaper and put It Into
his coat pocket. "None of us was ox-
pectln' of It, an' It sorter bu'sted our
calculations. Alf hnd laid out to put
new high back benches In Rock Crest,
nu' new lamps nil' ono thing another,
nu' It seems to mo"—Abner wiped bis
too fuclle mouth—"like I heerd Mm say
one day that you wasn't paid enough
fer yore thunder an' that he'd stir
around an' sec whnt could be done."
Abner's eyes twinkled, "But, lnwsy
me! I reckon ef be kin possibly raise
the scads to pay the tux on his investment next yeer he'll do nil the Lord expects."
"Huh, I reckon!" grunted Dole, Irritated, ns usual, by Abner's double
meaning.    "I  take lt tbat tbe  Lord
hain't got much to do with  human
speculations one way or other."
"Ef I just had that scamp, that roped
'im in befpre me a minute, I'd fix Mm,"
said Abner. "Do you know what de-
nomination Perkins belongs to?"
"No, I don't," Dole blurted out, "ai',
what's more, I don't care."
"Well, I acknowledge it sorter interests me," went on our philosopher In
an Inscrutable tone, "beea'se, Brother
Dole, you kin often trace a man's good
ur bad doln's to his belief in Bible matters. Maybe you don't remember Jabs
Lynau that stold Tbad Wilson's stump
suckln' boss an' was ketcbed an' put
up. I was at the courthouse in Darley
when he received bis sentence. His
wife sent me to Mm to carry his pipe
nn' one thing or other—a pair o' socks
au' other necessary tricks, a little can
o' lye soap, fer one thing. She hadn't
the time to go, as she said she had a
patch o' young corn to boe out. I found
Mm as happy as ef be was goin' off on
a excursion. He laugbed an' 'lowed
it ud be some time 'fore be got back,
an' I wondered what could 'a', made
Mm so contented, so I made some Inquiries on tbat line. I found tbat he
was a firm believer In predestination
an' that wbat was to be was foreordained. He snld tbnt he firmly believed
he was predestinated to go to tbe coal
mines fer boss stealln', an' that life was
too short to be klckln' ag'ln the Lord's
way o' runnin' matters. Besides, he '
snld, he'd beerd tbat they issued a plug
o' tobacco a week to chawln' prisoners, an' he could prove that he was on*
o' tbat sort ef they'd look how he'd
ground bis jaw teeth down to the
gums."
"Hub!" grunted Dole again, his sharp
gray eyes on Abner's face as lf be half
believed tbat some of his own theories
were being sneered at. It was true
tbat be, being u Methodist, had not advocated a belief in predestination, but
Abner Daniel bad on more than one
occasion shown a decided tendency to
bunch nil stringent religious opinions
together nnd cast them down as out of
date. When In doubt In a conversation
with Abner, the preacher assumed a
coldness on the outside that was often
not consistent with the fires within
bim. "I don't see what all that's got
to do with Brother Bishop's mistake,"
he snid frigidly as he leaned back In
bis chair.
"It sets me to wonderin' what denomination Perkins belongs to, that's
all," snid Abner, with another smile.
"I know in reason he's s big Ike Ip
some church In Atlanta, fer I never
knowed a lawyer that wasn't foremost
in thnt wny o' doln' good. I'll bet a
hoeonkc be belongs to some hlfalutln'
crowd o' worshipers that kneel down
on suft cushions an' believe In scoopin'
lu all they kin In the Lord's name, an'
thut charity begins nt home. I think
that myse'f, Brother Dole, fer tharv
never wns a plant ns hard to git rooted
as charity is, an' a body ought to have
it whar thoy kin watch it close. It'll
die a heap o' times ef you jest look ut
It, an' it mighty nigh always has bad
soil ur a drought to contend witb."
Just then Pole Baker, wbo bas already been Introduced to tbe reader,
rode up to the fence and bitched hit
horse. He nodded to the two men on
the veranda nud went around to the
smokehouse to get a piece of bacon.
Bishop bad promised to sell him oil
credit
"Hub!" Dole grunted, and he crossed
his long legs nnd swung his foot up
and down nervously. He had the look
of a man who was wondering why
sucb Insufferable bores as Abner should
so often accompany n free dinner. He
hnd never felt drawn to tbe man, and
lt Irritated bim to think thnt just when
his mental faculties needed rest Abner
always mnnnged to Introduce the very
topics wblcb mode lt necessary for
him to keep bis wits about him.
"Take that feller thar," Abner went
on, referring to Bnker. "He's about the
hardest customer in this county, nn' yet
he's bein' mnnaged right now. He's got
n wife an' seven children an' ls a holy

Ainu Jest said, as quiet as ef he was
nxin' Mm fer a match to light a cigar,
'Quit yore moonshlnlu', Pole.' That
was all be said. Pole looked Mm straight

" 'Alan Blsbop, you don't mean that!'
" 'Yes, I do, Pole,' Bald Alan. 'Qultl
Quit smack off!'
" 'You ax that as a favor?' said Pole.
" 'Yes, as a favor,' said Alan. 'An'
you are a-goln' to do lt too.'
"Then Pole begun to contend with
Mm. 'You are a-axln' that beea'se you

'but I tell you the' ain't no man on tbe

" 'I want you to give it up,' said Alan,

STEADILY FORGING AHEAD
The    Western   Assurance Company   is   a   Flourishing
Financial Concern.
Of tho many flourishing financial
concerns which hove their headquarters in Toronto, few can point to a
more gratifying record thnn that disclosed at tho annual meeting of the
Western Assurance Company, a full
report of which appeared in the columns of tho Mail and Empire on Saturday, Feb. 20. The financial statement showed tho company to be
steadily forging ahead, an appreciable
advance in business being evident.
The income for the year was 53,678,-
387.45, nml the expenditures were $3,-
372,474.85, leaving a profit of Ji.305,-
912.60, or upwards of 15 per cent, on
the company's capital stock. There
was an increase of $131,670.28 in premium earnings and of $10,681.71 In interest earnings, while thero was a decrease of $3,273.38 in losses incurred.
With nssets of $3,546,357-25 nnd a re-
nerve fund of $1,289,850, the company's financial position is as secure
and firmly established as wise and
efficient management can make it.
An interesting portion of President
deorge A. Cox's address was that in
which he referred to tha company's
interest in the groa*. lire ut Baltimore. Having malutalned an agency
there for 30 years, it would te unreasonable to hope to escape without
some considerable loss. Tlie company's share of the insurance du. had
been estimated at $350,000, which was
about equal to llie company's income
for one month. The probable advancement of rates in other cities on
similar properties to those destroyed
will largely offset this loss.—Mall and

Th* Woman and the Bos*.
A traveler stopped at a little cabin in
the Georgia woods. He wore a white
rose on his coat—one that a little girl
had plucked and pinned there aa he was
leaving borne.
A woman entered the cabin. She stood
and gazed at the rose a moment Then,
darting forward, she tore it from the
stranger's coat and stamped it on the
rude floor.
"Why did you do that?" asked the
stranger leaping to his feet.
"Hushl" said a man who was sitting
near. "That's my wife, an—an—she
ain't right here"—tapping his forehead.
"We had a little girl once, with blue
eyes an hair like a sunset. Bhe wandered off among the roses one day—lost,
lost!—an when we found her she was
where the roses grow, an they was creep-
in over her, An the wife there went
mad, an now she says the roses stole the
child an hid her away from us forever,
an she goes about an tramples them—
just like sbe did the rose there on the
floorl"—New York Recorder.
Deafnes* Cannot Be Cured
by local applications as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear. There Is only one
way to cure deafness, and that Ih by constitutional remedies. Deafness Is caused by an ln-
llamed condition of the mucous lining.of tbe
Eustachian Tube. When this tube Is Inflamed
you have a rumbling- sound or Imperfect hearing, and when It is entirely closed, Deafness Is
the result, and unless the Inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to Its normal
condition, bearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
which Is nothing but an Inflamed condition of
tbe mucoUB surfaces.

Tlie Legendary Adam and Eve.
To the Scriptural account of the crea-
tion and fall of Adam and Eve tbe Jewish
writers of the Talmud havo added many
curious particulars. According to these
mythmongers, Adam, when first created,
was a "giant of giants," as far as stature
goes, bis head reaching into the heavens
bnd his countenance outshining the sun
in all its splendor. In one place they
tell us that "the very angels stood iu
awe of the man which God had created,
ond all creatures hastened to worship
him." Then tho Lord, in order to give
tho angels somo idea of his power, caused
a deep sleep to come over Adam, and
while bo was in a coci-tose condition removed a portion of every limb and bone!
Tho first man thus lost a part of his colossal stature, yet he remained perfect
and complete. Next, the first "helpmeet" for the lord of creation was cre-
»ted in the person of Lilith, who forsook
Adam to becomo the "mistress of the
air and the mother of demons."
After tho departure of Lilith, Eve was
created and married to Adam in the
presence of Jehovah and tho angels, the
sun, moon and stars dancing together to
the angelic music rendered. Then the
supreme happiness of tho human pair
excited tho envy of even tho angels, and
the eeraph Sammael tempted them and
finally succeeded in bringing about their
fall from innocence. Adam lived as a
penitent on the very ground now occupied by the temple at Mecca, and Eve In
a cave on the side of Mount Ararat,
where, after a lapse of 200 years, she
was rejoined to Adam —St. Louis Republic.

Effect of the Earth's Motion on Big Shot.
That tlie earth's motion has an appreciable effect upon artillery fire, deflecting the projectile from a straight course,
may be news to many and as such would
probably seem a novel notion. It has,
and tbe exact nature and extent of the
effect iB an important point of study
with artillery experts. An English army
expert told of tho results of many interesting experiments along this line in a
paper read before the Royal Artillery
institution. Firing from north to south
there is a divergence of projectiles to the
left, due to the earth's rotation, and firing due north the divergence ia to the
right. The extent of the "pull" varies
at different points of tho earth's surface
and with projectiles fired at different
speeds and elevations. In England a deflection of five inches ia found to occur
with the projectile of a 12 pounder in a
4,000 yard range.—New York Sun.

Locusts Devouring Locusts.
In the summer of 1883, in which tho
excessive heat and drought had brought
about the nearly entire disappearance of
vegetation in a good part of the country
and moro particularly in the broken
country of Banda Oriental, 1 had occasion to make a journey from San Jose to
Mercedes. At one place, Los Piedras,
at which the diligence stopped, I noticed
great numbers of locusts of the species
Pezotettix vittiger, Pezotettix inaculi-
pennis nnd Pezotettix arrogaus, which
covered the ground and rocks,
My attention was attracted by the
fact of seeing around one locust 11 number of other individuals of tlio sumo species, which were eating its soft parts
even while it was yet alive and protesting vigorously. I saw different attacks,
in which tho conquerors, two or three at
a timo, got hold of tho weuker members
of their own kind, throwing thein over
and opening the abdomen in order lo
devour the entrails, thoso being the Butter and more savory portions, since they
still contained some of the vegetable
food. Cannibalism hero appeared in its
lowest development, aud the numerous
remains of those which had been eaten
bore witness to the extent to which the
process had been carried.
In the face of facts of this character,
it seems certain that nothing is sacred

FRUITS AND NUTS AS FOOD. I
llesalts of  l:eA„_w)i,.K   u-  tb*  V. S. De- j
imrtuirnt „r A*r.culture.
The United States Department   of i
Agriculture has for several years been
conducting a series of experiments to
determine the dietary value of differ- '
cnt foods.
Nine dietary studies and thirty-one
digestion experiments were carried
on. In the majority ol the dietary
studies and all but one .of the digestion experiments fruit and nuts ton-
stituled all or almost all of the diet.
The results of the investigation emphasize the fact that both fruit and
nuts should be considered as true
foods rather than food accessories.
Tho subjects were two women, three
children, two elderl-y men and two
university students. The men all did
hard nutiiiial labor during a part of
the time, the students working to
support themselves while pursuing
their studies.
The fore given in these experiments
was in every case ono that would appeal to uny normal appetite. Item-
braced honey, tomatoes, aPI'les, bananas, cantaloupes, grapes, verdal,
rornichon, lokny, musrut, scarlet
huus, pears, pomegranates, persimmons, oranges, strawberries, watermelons, ligs, almonds and peanut
butter. The only animal foods allowed were cottage cheese and eggs,
and these in limited quantities. The
cost of such a diet varied from 15
to 18 cents a day.
Comparative experiments were carried along in which animal foods
were employod under tho usual conditions of living, and in these the
daily cost ran from 20 to ISO cents.
It was found that the food eaten
supplied about GO per cent, of the
protein UBually secured by the aver-
ago meat diet, while health and
strength continued the same, if not
improved, and in two or three cases
there was a slight gain in flesh and
weight.
Fruits contain little protein, and
nuts are relied on in the fruitarian
plan of eating to balance the ration.
Fruits arc rith in carbohydrates and
nuts in fat. A pound of peanuts,
which costs 7 cents, fiirni.h.'d 1,001
calories of energy at a cost of 3)
cents and protein at a cost of 36
cents a pound. A porterhouse steak
costs for tho some result respectively
22. cents and 81.31 when the steak
can be bought for 2.ri cents a pound.
A   l'rrr«ri o,l Credit© -.
A member of the commercial
swindling fraternity lately called his
creditors together and offered them
in settlement his note for 2 shillings
in the pound on their cluims, payable in four months. His brother,
ono of the lartrest creditors, rather
kicked, but tho debtor took him
aside and said:
"Do not make any objections, and
I will make you a preferred creditor."
Wo the proposal was accepted bv
all.
Presently the preferred brother
said:
"Well, I should like what is coming to me."
"Oh," was the reply, "you won't
get anything; thoy won't any ol
them get anything,''
"But I thought I was a preferred
creditor?"
".So you are. These notes will not
be paid when they come due, but it
will take them lour months to find
out that they are not going to got
anything. But you know it now.
You see, you aro preferred."—London Stundurd,
flermita Arnjy It.miileace.
Considerable sensation has been
made in Paris by llie appeuruueo in
The Oil lllus of an article entitled
"The (Ireatness und Decadence of the
Gurniau Army." The author is evidently very familiar with conditions
in that service. The points he makes
are that the general discontent and
spirit of revolt iu labor circles are
extending to the army, being taken
there by the youths from tho towns
and cities, liy them it ia communicated to the youth from tho country, who, at the end of their service, take it home with them. The
Immediate results are seen in tho
increasing unwillingness of tho youth
of tho country to join thu colors,
for they know boforehand the severe treatment they are likely to receive. The author suys also that the
average (,'erituiii officer Is not only
lacking in enthusiasm in his duties
but is actually cold toward them,
accepting thorn as the dullest routine.

BLAIR'S GOUT AND
RHEUMATIC PILLS
Bui* fer Hanging Piclnrr*.
An artist gives as a simple general
rule for hanging pictures that whero
only one row is to be hung the central point in each picture should be
ou the level Willi the eye of tho ordinary person. This point is easily
discovered, for thu eye unconsciously
rests upon it af the first glance. In
a vignette portrait, for example,
the central point is tho chin. Careless and ignorant framora of pictures
often disregard this point, which
should regulate thoir work. The central point should be at the exact intersection of two diagonal lines
drawn from thu corners of tha
frame, not the mat. It is a disregard of this which often gives the
picture the effect of slipping out of
its frame..
The  I'l-ninil,
The home of the peanut, or ground
pea (also often called plndnr and goober), Is believed to be Brazil, although
it very soon spread to Africa, China,
Japan nnd India and was recognized
as a valuable agricultural product In
these countries long before it was cultivated on n large scale in its native
soil, wblcb was uot until tbe year 1870.
In the old world, however, it has always been planted and harvested for
the sake of the oil that lt yields. This
Is said to rival olive oil lu quality and
to be used for the same purposes. Tbe
nuts raised In the east nre far richer
In oil than tbe American varieties.
The moi't popular of the American
peanuts Is tbe "Virginia running variety." The pod and nut of the Virginia
variety nre twice lis large ns those of
the North Carolina or African peanut.
The Spanish nuts, usually sold only
after being shelled and salted, are still
.Dialler, but of excellent flavor. Tennessee has two varieties, called the
white and the red, the kernels of the
latter having a dark red skin.

Pec'* Magic Mirror.
There are several accounts of the
manner In which the famous gunpowder plot of 1005 wbb discovered, but
among tbe students of occult science
Ihe belief is thut Its timely discovery
was made by In-. John Dee by menus
of a magic mirror. Proof of how gen-
oral this belief was at one time Is given
by the fact that In some editions of
the Common Prayer Book, published in
the eighteenth century, is to be found
an engraving Inserted before tbe service for Nov. 5 depleting a circular mirror on a stand In which Is the reflection of the bouses of parliament by
night and a person carrying a dark
lantern. On the left side nre two meu

In the northern Slum states, on tbe
border of Burma, there ls a trlbo called
tbe Wlhl Wns. These people propitiate
with human skulls the demons whom
they worship. Outside every village In
their country there aro many posts, all
In one line, decked with human skulls,
A niche ls cut In the back of each post,
with s ledge on which the skull can
rest uud i-rin through a bole In front
of It. Hvery village has a dozen and
some as many as a hundred.of these
tiead posts. Fresh skulls sre lu special
request at harvest lime and are purchased for large sums, tbose of distinguished visitors being particularly desired.

Current opinion about women changes
so rapidly in these days, 'to keep up
wilh the steady advance of their position, thai. It Is something of a shock to
find here and there some heavy leftovers of old prejudice against that advance.
We ought not to he astonished, now
lhat we have learned what race bored
ity does to llie mind, how ancient habits
of thought and feeling persist in us for
many generations—persist, indeed, until we exert our own conscious power
of judgment and drive them out.
What our ancestors thought about
women Is no secret. All early literature preserves their anything but complimentary views. Those who take
their impressions from modern romantic fiction should modify .them by
a glance at some authority of pro-chiv-
nlrJc days.
There was a time when the popular
mind believed "a man of-straw is worth
a woman of gold," and, as a matter of
fact, the popular mind .has not yet recovered from it.
Our reverence for the mother dates
farther yet, to the very bottom, to -that
remote 'but long.enduring period of the
matrinrchate; our fondness for the
sweetheart, wife and daughter is but.
natural; but as to women in general—
just women—we are stili possessed of
much of our ancestral error.
•When the grea.t renascence of women began, the event of the nineteenth
century, one of their flr&t.demlipids .was
for .edueu'MoiiI and great was the outcry
against it. Some of us ure still crying out—which does not stop the advance of women, hut does locate-the
objector as to-the, date of his minil.
It is so easy, wlthany thought less
than* a hundred years old. to see the
manifold advantages of a well-developed,  well-stocked brain .in a  woman.
Looking nt her only as a female, she
still represents half the human race,
and as mother Is the most Important
half In r:ife-bul!illng. The guy, pretty,
coquettish girl may be never so attractive to a wooer, bill the ion::
stretch of life '-alls im- more lasting
qualities than these,
We may be amusedly the errors of
Uninformed girlhood, and by the queer
blank spaces In her so largely-vaeiiai
mind. Hut errors end vneancy are'
poor companions In live wilh—as Lord
Chesterfield knew when telling his
much-advised son to marry a womani
of intelligence-"For thou wilt, find'
there is nothing more fulsome than a
Bh"-fool."
Those who fear a loss of the more
sapci flci-a! charms might qulcY thelr
fcars hy referring to the love-tales of'
the I3.ist. Tt|C Light fit the Harem
was no fool.
See how the favorite Is described in
the story of Khaleefeh, the Fisherman:
"She was endowed with the utmost
beauty and loveliness, and fine stn.ture,
and justness of form; and among the
number of her excellences were these:
that -she knew all sciences and arts,
and composed verses, and played upon
all kiln's of musical Instruments . .
.   she  war unequalled  in  lier a_-e."
In our preference lor bodily attractions, are we so sure lhat ignorance'
enhances even physical beauty?
.The most beautiful people of all time,
the Greeks, were the most Intellectual.
It lakes Intellecl to appreciate beauty,
and lo develop It. The most beautiful
elms is the educated, not the Ignorant.
Ocraslonnlly there Is beauty of a sort
among underbred people, but .it Js  not
the best sort even then. And quite
beyond .this chance prettiness of face
or form, when we come really to an-
aly v ."'.nd measure the "points" of.hu-
mx. i eauty, and the sound health and
physical training necessary to maintain
the best type, It is only education which
can teach women to know real beauty,
to value and preserve lt.
In the ideal marriage, .where an honest passion needs lasting health and
vigor to keep it pure and permanent,
and where the friendship, which is as
essential, needs the companionship of
an equal mind and the broad and cheerful tolerance of an equal experience,
the educated woman ls a most necessary factor. It Is hoi too much education, but ,too little, which has given
ground for objection so far. The average man, with his Inheritance of pre-
historic .views of women, looking only
for a house-servant and submissive
worshipper, or for some esoteric superiority in "Instinct" which shall
never contravene bis superiority of intellect, If be finds his housework ill
done, bis opinions contradicted, and yet
at the same time a dependent and self-
indulgent woman un his hands, Is offended—and hastily lays the blame tm
eduoatlon.
lt .does not belong there. The truly
well-educated woman Is a wiser and
more careful mother, a better housekeeper, though she may do the work
by proxy; .and too broad-minded to b"
contentious. "A little learning is n
dangerous thing" for man or woman.
If a girl is strong on ancient history
and weak on modern life, she is not
well-educated. But .that transition
period is rapidly passing. The opportunities for woman widen every year.
She has now more common-school edu
cation .turn the boy. She has college
advantages In the majority of ou
states. She may enter the professions,
arts, trades, business of all sorts, and
sbe does.
Her reading is no longer confined to
love-stories alid directions for amateur
housekeeping. She keeps in touch with
the world "in books and work and
healthful play," and the world is better for her hand upon it.
One of the plainest reasons for our
frequent misfits in marriage is that a
man, of such and such character and
habits, .marries a girl—uot even a wo
man, but a girl, of nascent, negative,
Indeterminate character and habits,
with no range and no purpose—a potential human being, perhaps, but not
a real one. Tie does not 'know what
he is getting. She is pretty, affectionate; cheerful; Ihey "love" each other,
and so they begin life in the closest,
most flexible companionship ever invented by mankind.
Then sbe becomes thus and so—something very different rrom what he expected—lf he  expected  anything.
True education means the full development of personal character; the
bringing out of all that one Is, and1 the
supply of such Information as will enable one to do and be the utmost possible.
A woman so educated-is a clearly de
fined personality. A man meeting her
could form some judgment of her compatibility. If he did not like that kind,
he need not marry it. And she, the
final arbiter, would be Infinitely better
able to know what she wanted, to take
it when she found it, and to stick to it
when  she  had U.
The abundant unhappiness in marriage is no result of education, but quite
the contrary.
With the increase of wise, well-inform' d, able women we may look for
far more stable and happy homes.
In every educational movement of tlie
day, whether In pure science, high art,
motor t:_Jnlng, or practical business,
women should be to the fore. They
need more education than men—be
cause they have had less. They need
the fullest and best education, because
■the world needs ull the able citizens it
can get. And they need tt, most of
all, because they are the main factors
in human development—and when opr
mothers are properly educated the fool-
killer can go out of business. Would
there be no men fools? Yps, but if
women were not fools, such men would
die bachelors.
