The annual baby show at Asbury Park.

Institution, bringing out each year an ln
i .reused number of tiny tots, the kin and

Tirade precedes the real show In the main
t-nt," to borrow the lingo of the circus
and this year's parade, on Saturday of
!.Lt week, consisted of 600 youngster and
nn equal number of dolls In conveyances
.-fitting the age and Importance of the
Lahles. For over four hours the vast
throngs sat entranced at the splendors of
t ie scene and were as one In making
obeisance to the tiny revelers, who trod
the carpeted lengths of the avenue and
rotroceded back again Into the ampht
tl.ratcr where they whirled around the

lrnt their share In making tha eighteenth
annual parade on of the most successful

orations in the hotel district. In the am
phitheater and along Ocean avenue were
on n much more elaborate scale than
usual. There were nine divisions In ths
column, consisting of doll coaches, express
wagons, baby coaches and gocarts, cos
tumes In fancy dress, costumes In college
colors, costumes In burlesque, floats and
I tiny turnouts
The doll coach division was particularly
strong and displayed all the familiar va
riety of decorated coach and many de
lightful novelties that received their full
measure of appreciation from the specta
tors. It was in the fancy dress costume
section, however, that the parade assumed
more picturesque and colored effect Many
of the fancy' costumes represented up-to-
date characters In public life, others por
trayed the customs of ancient and me
dieval times and not a few In the bur-

The Mother of the Farm.
In addressing the people of Jordanvllle,
N. T., on Wednesday the president said
a thing about which there can be no dif
ference among observing men. It was:
"The hardest worked individual on the
farm is apt to ba the wife of the farmer;
If you don't applaud that you ought to;
1 believe In the farmer economising, but
on l.lmeslf, not on his wife." '
That Is what may rightly be called a
rock-ribbed truth, needlrg neither the
rhetoric of a suffragette nor the benevo
ier.ee of a national commission for Its
demonstration. It is entirely within Com
mon knowledge, comments the Chicago
It M not a truth that we need, as a peo
ple, to be ashamed of or sit In sackcloth
un.l ashes about. It Is an Individual af
fair a personal matter for the conscience
of the man whom the shoe fits. Yet it

give appreciative consideration, that we

She is not asking for public sympathy.
F;ir from it. She would resent as an In

She has her trials, but she wears not
her heart upon her sleeve. She knows
that most of them were unavoidable
that they were necessary labors of crea-

One of the hundred bits of edvlce doled
out to women for ages Is that whloh urges
the necessity of meeting the home-o lining
man with a smile. No matter what do
mestic trials have frayed her temper,
cheerfulness must be on tap. It Is gjud
advice so far aa It goes, but no matter
how hard business cares press upon a man,
he Inevitably has something to distract
him from It, even If It be nothing
more than the journey between home and
business. The wife is not always diverted
from matters that trouble her; theoret
ically she ought to have mental strength
to rise sbeve them, but a wife and mother
is apt to get physically and nervously over
tired. If the husband Is a "grumpy" man and
rlts at his dinner in S'lence, eats as if hU
mind was far off, has to be spoken to
twice before he answers, and appears un
appreclative of his food, then the wife. Is
justified In being grieved and hurt. The
Complaining woman and the grumpy man
make a home that children flee from and
people do not visit for the veneer of kind
ness and cheerfulness, assumed for the
occasion, does not deceive. The man who
can smile just a little when he comes
home and talk a little nonsense with the
children is as much of a model as the
woman who can be light-hearted In tha
midst of aggravations that come even In
the beat-managed houses.

ilrU In Their College Year.
Hookisli ness and grinding study, and
above all specialization, whatever may be
said about It for boys, is utterly unnatural
for girls In the teens and early tweniioa.
Tney nave all-sided knowledge got in a
way that fits their more intuitive and at
til same time more mature minds. After
ag.-s of segregation in a narrow circle, the
very going to Collegu and exposure to the
manifold Interests of Its atmosphere and
the presence of so many personalities and
sets is ilxclf a treat strain, especially as
the girl's Instinctive tendency Is to live
more in her immediate environment and to
master It better than boys and to care less
for what is remote In time and place, or
for abstract things. Bhe must and ought to
devote a larger share of her total capital of
psychophyslc energy to matters of dress,
social activities, health, body-keeping and
regimen than boys of equal years. She Is
riper at the same age for love and thoughts
of marriage, is fittest to associate with men
some years older than she, says G. Stanley
Hall, author of "Adolescence" In the Sep
tember Appleton's, so that If In co-educa-
tlonul colleges her male associates are
chiefly those of her own age and stage of
advancement, she is likely to be a little
disenchanted with the sex in general,
Judging it from the Immature specimens
who are her classmates. The latter are
much farther from any serious thoughts
of wedlock for which they are less pre
pared, and so In a sense have a certain
unfair advantage over her In all matters
In which the affections are liable to be In
volved. It is often questionable whether in social
intercourse with their own sex, girls are
not more prone to overdraw their energies
than are boys, and whether they are also
not more burdened with a sense of duties
tu their teachers, classmates, club, sorority,
than are their brothers. The great present
danger is that, owing in part to the very
altruism of tho girl's nature, her loyalty
and sense of duty, she will overdraw her
physical energies before anyone knows It,
least of all herself. It is not soluly a ques
tion whether she graduates better in health
than Bhe would have been had she remained
at homo, but whether sne ought not to
emerge still better than she does. Nervous
tension, over-cxcitenient and Incipient neu
rasthenia and hysteria are very hard even
for experts to diagnose. But it la the very
diathesis of womankind that they tend to
put Into things In which they are inter
ested more energy than their system can
bear, and spend not only income but cap
ital. Especially during the eight or tea
years when the primary and secondary sex
qualities that constitute so much larger a
part of woman's body and soul than of
man's need so large a share of the total
supply of energy; erudition, if bought at
the cost of ever so little pelvic and pec
toral development, comes too high.
Woman's Attractive Age.
"When we speak of the attractiveness of
woman, w really mean the attractiveness
ot woman to man," wrote a woman con
tributor In the Bun Francisco Call recently.
"With men the question of when a
woman Is most attractive is doubly com
plicated, because It depends not only on
the woman, but on the taste of the man
himself. Not many years ago, if this
question had been aBked, the answer would
have been unhesitatingly made that a
woman Is most attractive between the ages
ot IS and 20. Most of the heroines ot
classicul fiction are mere children.
"It must be confessed that, with rare
exceptions, the modern rian prefers some
thing more sophisticated than sweet 16,
though it Is undeniable that the unintelli
gent woman Is at her best when she Is
In her teens. This Is easily understood.
"Almost ail young creatures are beauti
ful, and heaven gives to even the home
liest woman a day of grace between lu
and 13 when she Is pretty with the pret
tlness of fresh cheeks, and dewy eyes,
and glossy hair.
