Briton Says American Upper
Class Petted Too Much.
Praises Southern Family Life Pride
in Maintaining Lineage Receives
Approval of Writer in Eng
lish Review.
London. The American society
woman is severely criticised by Filson
Young in an article on "American
Characteristics" in the. current Eng
lish Review ,
"She is as much pampered and pet
ted , " he says , "as the favorite of an
eastern harem. Her life , since most
American men are closely occupied
with business , is lived almost entire
ly among women. The American
favorites of the harems crowd to
gether in noisy restaurants in lunch
eon parties , chatting endless nonsense
at the top of their voices , this being
almost their sole distraction , poor
things , since for women , no more
.than for anyone else ( except for chil
dren and servants , who have the lib
erty to be insolent and inefficient ) , Is
there any true liberty in America.
"Just as the moment when women
In American society become mature
they cease to live and grow , and re
main half children , half dolls.
"Before marriage they can do as
they please ; after marriage they sur
render both individuality and liberty
of thought and movement. "
/ So much for the American woman
in society. On the subject of Amer-
'ican women in the family of the same
writer holds very different views. "If
one takes the family as the basis of
any state of community , " he says ,
"and judges it by its failure of success
In the communal purpose , then I think
without any doubt , one must admit
that family life is one of the very best
things in America.
"American families are singularly
united , and carry on into mature age
that unity and affection which , as a
rule , only last through the period of
"There is no pleasanter sight than
that of some well-to-do American fam
ily in a beautiful and spacious house
in one of the southern states , where
the patriarchal life goes on beyond
, the youth of the children , who , If they
marry , still keep the old home as their
center , and , instead of forsaking it ,
bring new sous and daughters into it ;
or , if they be unmarried , are com
rades and friends of their parents ,
whom , as old age steals on them like
sunset , the children , in their turn ,
cherish and care for as they them
selves were cherished.
"This is- the id-eal of family life ,
seldom realized anywhere , b.ut more
often now in America than anywhere
else. "

Remarkably Sound Advice for the
'Woman Who Has Some Years
of Life to Her Credit.
The way to .ward off old age is not
to fear it , not to allow one's self to
be oppressed by the dread of advanc
ing years. Use only legitimate pre
ventives and avoid trying expermients
with preparations not indorsed by
physicians. Do not wear toilettes in
tended for young girls , they only add
years to the appearance. Keep up
your interest in the young , but do not
envy them. Retire with dignity from
the struggle , do not pose as your
daughter's rival. Above all , surround
your life with sweet , true affections
which prevent the heart from growing
bitter. Do not lose interest in the
growing events of the day ; do not fall
behind the times and do not harp on
other and better days. To those who
come to you for advice be always kind
and sympathetic. As you advancefn
years preserve carefully your personal
appearance , for once lost it may not
be regained , save by strenuous effort.
Your costumes should be simple and
unpretentious , yet graceful. These ,
rules , carefully and sensibly followed ,
will keep you young and attractive.

"Eight years ago I got eczema all
over my hands. My fingers fairly bled
and it itched until it almost drove me
frantic. The eruption began with
itching under the skin. It spread fast
from between the fingers around the
nails and all over the whole hands. I
got a pair of rubber gloves in order to
wash dishes. Then it spread all over
the left side of my chest. A fine doc
tor treated the trouble two weeks , but
did me no good. I cried night and
day. Then I decided to try Cuticura
Soap and Ointment but without much
hope as I had gone so long. There
was a marked change the second day ,
and so on until I was entirely cured.
The Cuticura Soap we have always
kept in our home , and we decided
after that lesson that it is a cheap
soap in price and the very best in
quality. My husband'will use no other
soap in his shaving mug. " ( Signed )

your sex for the home rather than for
