“No, I had a club.”
“Did you knock him down?”

Have Gained in Volubility.
Ella Hep*,orth Dixon, In th<*> West*
The women of the last generation
were, as Miss Mayor, that observant
novelist points out, "incapable of
discussion. They were as inartic
ulate as the uneducated, though
often almost erudite.” Certainly
those women were better read than
most girls are nowadays; they knew
several modern languages, painted
tolerably in water-colors, played
Beethoven, and read their Robert
Browning. But the mass of upper
middle-class women did not talk well.
They bored their partners at din
ner. The late Sir Victor Horsly used
to declare to young women that only
*s the twentieth century dawned did
he begin to enjoy dining out. Before
that time it was considered "not
quite nice” for women to air their
opinions at the dinner table. Like
children, they were there to be seen,
How many of us can remember a
mother in pink silk flounces who ac
cused some feminine guest at a
dinner party of having "talked for
effect?” To talk for effect was as
much a crime in later Victorian so
ciety as to “dress for effect.” Neither
was in the best taste. "My dear, eat
your dinner and do not talk so much"
was the parting advice handed out,
later on, when the daughters took
their mother’s place at London dinner
parties. How odd it would sound
now, when most of the talk issues
from feminine flips, and the men sit
round, amused and listening!
The chief drawback of conversing
with the young nowadays is that
they all talk at once and seldom
listen for a reply. It Is something
of an achievement to get a word in
edgeways, and even then you may
be proud if it is taken up and argued
about before it is dismissed for good.
The Voluntary System.
From the London Times.
The figures on the Income and ex
penditure of British hospitals situ
ated outside of London as ascer
tained by Dr. Kay Menzies, acting on
behalf of the Joint Council of the
Order of St. John and the British
Red Cross society, deserve the close
attention of the public. They are re
markable both in their magnitude
and in their relationship to each
other. Thus income exceeded expen
diture last year by the amount of
£213,694, while a sum of more than
£7,000,000 was actually obtained
from voluntary subscriptions.
This large volume of support has
flowed not from a few wealthy men
or women, but from the whole people,
rich and poor alike. It represents a
national impulse to serve the weak
and the disabled which, without
doubt, is as strong as it Is inspiring.
In face of this expression of good
will, statements to the effect that
the "voluntary system” has failed or
outlived its usefuless lose their point
The voluntary system, as these re
turns clearly indicate, has given to
a whole people the means of ex
pressing continuously its kindest and
most unselfish feelings. It has
organized the spirit of service on be
half not only of the sick, but also of
humanity; and the greatest gain is
to the givers. Indeed It Is no exag
geration to say that, as a people,
we owe a great debt to all those who,
by Inviting help for the hospitals,
have made vast numbers of their
feilowcitizens partners In the noblest
of enterprises. The advocates of med
ical socialism overlook this aspect.
At a heavy charge on the National
Exchequer they may promise larger
institutions equipped with more cost
ly apparatus—though it Is possible
that even this promise may not be
fulfilled. But it is hard to see what
they can give to compensate for the
lost of that sense of comradeship In
misfortune which is the most pre
cious of ail the elements of a free
Oup Debt to Children.
By Norman Hapgood, in Hearst’s
Better teachers, fuller school equip
ments, it matters not what they cost
We owe them to our children. And
we owe them more. We owe them
our own example. What we do, and
the lives they live with us, will affect
them most. Give them a chance to
be careful in their childhood, to prac
tice thorny, to do for themselves.
If the greatest men have usually been
born In the country and later gone
to the city, there Is a reason. Hux
ley warns us not to let a child’s
schooling interfere with Its education.
It ought to have the best schooling
our brains and our purses can pro
cure. But its deepest education Is In
the hands of Its parents.

not nearly so eternal as most people

buildings in England this has already
become a serious danger. Now the

is believed to be due to the action of
