la MoherTt)or Needed
We are told that May I Is to be cele
brated as "Mother' day." aaya the Chicago
Jnter-Ocsan. The white carnation Is to bo
the emblem, and all mothers' sons and
daughter ara urged to wear It. Several
churches have arranged for special serv
ices. On the preceding rrlday appropri
ate exerclsea will b held In several achoola.
Wo respec. the sentiment that gave
birth to the Idea of an official "Mothers'
day," but we regret the lack of taste that
It reflects. There are some sentiments
Intimate, tender, delicate sentiments that
do not lend themselves to auch publlo cele
bration. They ara all tha atronger for not
being proclaimed from the house tope.
They are the nobler for being freed from
the mawklshness and formality that pub
Fancy this delicate, deep, abiding senti
ment of respect for motherhood personified
In mortal ahape if that were possible.
Would It go up or down the highways and
byways proclaiming Ita peculiar excel
lence? Would It delight In acclamanatlons
and official programa? Or would It rather
be tha quiet, beautiful companion of men
and women In their private lives, speak
ing softly, stirring depths of feeling by its
own Intensity, gentle and unobstruslve, yet
oonstant, persistent and persuasive?
There ara some writers who do not
understand the force of reticence. There
are soma actora who do not realise the
excellence of restraint. There are some
women who do not perceive tha oharm
which reserve adds to women.
There are musicians who do not appreci
ate any musical value exoept noise, nd
there are not only soma but thousands of
people who do nof seem able In this matter
of .motherhood to catch the reverence of
privacy, the devotion of secrecy, the vast
respect of silence; the deep sentiment be
hind the persistent refusal of the average
man to make publlo proclamation of love
for his mother.
Why profano the noble modesty of such
an affection by placing It on exhibition,
by advertlelng It in the market place?
Many thrujs remain which lend them
selves to official celebration; there need
neVer be a lack of subject or excuse. But
until our regard for womankind haa sunk
to the level of classic antiquity, which
esteemed the mother mainly aa the official
bearer of the man-child In other words,
until Ve have the official mother let ua
deprecate the official celebration.
We may aafely leave the love of mother
to the profound Instincts of the human
raoe, to the itnphaala of religion, to tha
gratitude of the poet, who is able to com
press the meaning and exclude the bad
taate of thousand official celebrations

Nearly all the commercial schools show

In the bookkeeping classes there are about
aa many women aa men. A very large
proportion of these women, who appear to
have marked out a business career, are
college bred, and many others are high
bchool graduates. One reason given for
this tendency la the overcrowding of such
professions aa teaching.
After ColIeee7 What?
What to do next! It la a big problem.
Isn't It? And to the girl on the eve of
graduation, says the Dellnator, It Is a
problem that assumes appalling propor
tions Tet really, If we look It straight In
the face, It Isn't such an awful question,
after all. By we, I mean girls of average
Intelligence not geniuses seeking careers,
but girls who either by choice or neces
sity decide to earn their bwn living In
It Is Ignorance of the requirements and
of tha advantages and disadvantages con
nected with the various phases of profes
sional, bualneaa and home life that seems
to be the cornerstone of perplexity and the
causa of failure In many cases. You must
take time to atudy the different occupa
tions and thus decide for which you are
best adapted. Here Is a chance for the
college-trained girl to show her apprecia
tion of tha merits of thorough Investiga
tion, not mistaking Inclination for ability
by persuadng herself tha,t what she likes
to do is lndentlcal with what aha can do.
' The sooner tha artist by choice realises
that she la a housekeeper by ability, tha
better It will be for pride and pockctbook.
The first thing, then, for the college girl In
choosing an occupation, Is to find out what
she can't do; then, by ellmlnatlve process,
to decide for what line of work she la best
fitted, considering temepraraent, training,
home conditions and opportunity In general.
Should si Man Pregese Twleef
When a man has aaked a woman to
marry him and haa been refused, the ques
tion whether he shall ask her again Is one
which only he himself can answer.
In the first plaoe, says a writer in the
St Louis Globe-Democrat, It Is of the ut
most Importance that ha should be certain
of his own wishes la the matter; whether
ha truly la n love, or merely swept along
by the wind of a pasatng fancy; whether
the woman who has said "no" Is so de
sirable In his eyes that he c.innit be happy
unless he gets her. Nor Is this phase of
the question altogether easy to decide off
hand. Men, aa well aa women, often mis
take a passing fancy for a deep and abiding
love, and later rn find that their affection,
being without root, withers away.
Every woman by whom a man la strongly
attracted la, for the moment, to him the
"one and only" In all the world, but time
passes, the slide In the magic lantern of
his heart la filled with another Image, then
another, and aa he Is equally sure that
each la turn Is loved with the on love of
his life. Constancy, where It serves no
good purpose, cesses to be a virtue, and
becomes a misfortune, if not a vice.
So far aa Is publicly known, no statistics
have yet been compiled upon the subject,
but observation and evidence go to prove
that the average man marries somewhere
about the fifth or sixth girl with whom he
falls In love. There have been four or
five young women, each of whom for a
longer or shorter period he has regarded
aa tha paragon of her sex. but hs has al
ready got over his Infatuation and has mar
ried another, and probably congratulates
himself upon the fact that he has done so.
It would be most unfortunate for him and
for his wrfa If he had not.
The manner of the refusal should weigh
In the reception thereof. Any man with
his fair share of common sense ought to
know whether he Is snubbed or the con
trary; whether his suit is peremptorily de
clined or merely tentatively set aside.
Another thing which the Wooer should
take into consideration la that women from
their youth up are taught to ropress their
feelings, and often are stiff and cold be
cause ef the effort at repression. Almost
all women are more or less nervous, and
mirth, which is hysterical rather than
merry, la often resented aa ridicule by a
sensitive wooer. An attack of the kind
may dash the cup of happiness from a
woman's lips and Incense her suiter past
forgiveness. An involuntary smile will be
taken for heartlessnesa by the man who la
desperately In earnest. A humorous word
will be an Insult, a Jest a proof of scorn.
No man can bear to be laughed at, and
Ms vanity If not his heart will receive a
wound which la not eaaily to be healed.
It Is a pity, but women sometimes lose tha
men whom they love by a lack of self
control which is misconstrued Into ridicule.
Sayings of Mrs. Solomon.
. In a translation of the Sayings of Mrs.
Solomon, being the alleged confessions of
the 700th wife, Helen Rowland rakes the
foibles of the present day In this style:

Models as Wives.
Models of dressmakers are not alwaya
models of wives, argued a lawyer when
pleading In tha Paris divorce court for a
Paris costumier. " This person had a par
ticular fancy for models. He married one
long ago, whereupon she ruined his busl
nosa and drove him to seek and obtain a
dlvcrce. But, not content with this experi
ence, the fashionable dressmaker married
a second model after he had recovered a
part of Ms lost fortune. She turned out
no better than the first, and did even worse
by running away with an "amant" The
lawyer concluded as follows: "Do not re
fuse my client the divorce ha aaks for.
There are-still plenty of models In the Rue
de la Palx and the place Vendcme, and
perhaps" The court very generously
granted the dressmaker the divorce he
asked for, leaving him at full liberty to
choose a third "mannequin" for his wife.
