you would not have known so easily how
to say that the third girl failed to meet
with your approval, nor would you have
so immediately guessed the censure under
the contradictory words.
If girls keep on maltreating the language
the way they do there will have to be an
especial profession created, an lntrepreter
of English as "she Is spoke" by girls.
"I would quite ss soon be called a fool
aa to have some one say I am sweet," you
announce positively. ,
What Is wrong with that pleasant word
"sweet?" Not a thing In the world. The
wrong Is with you. You have used It to de
scribe a person who Is negative In character
or so lacking In charming that you can
think of no word that really fits her so
you cay her "sweet." You certainly damn
the girl with faint praise, but why spoil
Don't you think we are" getting a bit
mixed as well as mixing our words. It Is
not supposed to be polite or kind to tell
the truth. That Is actually what this mis
use of , words reveals. -We lie, forcing a
good, pleasant word to act as our instru
ment. And at last 'that good, pleasant
word Is spoiled' because It has been mis
used go much. "Sweet" has become a term
Girls are so merciless .In. making each
other lie. They .ask direct questions and
expect agreeable answers. It Isn't fair
to say to a gueat, "Has she; a. ierfeot
voice?" after she has listened to a winner
whom you have secured to entertain. You
would think her rude. Why, you would be
madder than a whole poultry yard full of
wet hens If she'did not. think the voice was
perfect, fio she lies and says It Is. It's your
fault. It s your wilful misuse of words that
causes your sister to offend In one way
Ahlle she pleases you In another.
You know aa well as I that men have a
chronic complaint against us "becaune we
are deceitful." I honestly believe that they
net the Impression largely from our mls
uxe of words. We think It does not count.
But Just try the experiment yourself of
following a girl through a crowded draw
ing room. Listen to the untruths she utters.
A man who la trailing some pretty girl
gets this chance often enough. No wonder
he begins to doubt her ability to tell the
truth. And you cannot afford to have THE
man doubt you. Just on his account It
would be worth while to take a kind of
Keeley cure for inebriety in the use of
"Jack, dear." queried the (air Inald at

How to Treat a Husband
"Sometimes," confided the Wise Wife,
toying with a magaslne, "I feel that I
must dash over and give the woman In
the flat across the hall tha Cbatauqua
"And what la Chatauqua treatment?"
asked the listening friend.
"The Chatauqua treatment, my dear. Is
a course of helpful and Interesting lectures
on timely topics. Onlyf in this casa 1
should build all my lectures on the simple
subject of 'The Dangers of Being Too Nice.'
"For Instance, her husband came home
Just a few moments before you dropped
In. As he opened the door I heard a shrill
voice call 'Don't hang your wet coat on
the rack. Henry, where it will drip on the
haU carpet. Take It Into the kitchen, and
Wipe off your shoee, so they won't mar
the floors.' Wasn't that a nice, cheerful
greeting for a man who has been on the
treadmill of trade all day and who looked
forward to closing the door on the world
to find himself In a place he could really
call ha own?
"The wife -across the way has the Idea
that a real home must be a temple of neat
ness. Now, every woman knows how a
man revels In his Sunday morning papers,
how he loves to pull them apart and let
them billow about him In wavea of news
and comio sections. The more he can scat
ter them the happier he Is. It la one of
the' masculine peculiarities we accept with
out trying to fathom. '
"I have happened In across the hall sev
eral Sunday mornings when Henry Is In
the midst of his literary feast. Poor Henry!
Hardly does he unfurl a sheet until It la
snatched from the floor, neatly folded and
placed In the rack. He Is sure to want that
particular sheet about three seconds later,
but he wouldn't dare pull It out after It
had been properly' 'put away.' And you
ought to see the books on the library
table! They look as if they had been cut
out of paper and pasted on.
. "But the really momentous question In
the household Is What shall we do with
the cigar ashes? You know, the ash tray
In that house is of more vital Importance
than the health of Its members, the new
spring suit or the high cost of living. I
venture to say that the ash tray has been
the 'source of more harsh words, bitter
recriminations and heated family quarrels
than any other half-dozen things or per
sons In existence. You see. It Is given a
place on the library table only under pro
test, and la supposed to efface Itself as
effectually as If It never were there. After
Henry surreptitiously uses It for the used
portions of his Havanas he Is supposed to
bear it carefully to the kitchen and there
remove all traces of Its real purpose. Some
times, after a hard day at the office, he
forgets. Poor Henry, It's a sad day for
him when he forgets to remember that
rule. And, If he should drop his ashes he

would never hear the end of that crime.
- "Ha la always being reminded that his
chair Is getting too close to the piano or
is In danger of scraping against the ma
hogany cabinet. Invariably this comes In
the midst of a conversation, when the point
of the story is being told. The drawers of
hla chiffonier are so orderly he can't find
a collar button and his laundry is 'put
away' so carefully that he has to Issue a
search warrant to find a clean shirt."
"I've noticed," the Wise Wife continued
after a pause, "that there is less and less
use for the ash tray, and that on rainy
evenings the umbrella seldom drips on the
halt carpet because Henry la detained down
town.' The men at his club aee him a lot
more than they once did.
"Carpets and mahogany furniture can
bo purchased in any department store. For
a 11.60 a day a maid can be secured to pick
up scores of scattered papers. Love Is not
on the market at any price. What I want
to ask the woman across the hall is,
whether she prefere the ashes of .cigars or
the ashes of love as a household decora
Superstitious belief in mermaids dates

Ancient Japanese believed that the world

If you wash your face and hands In the
water another has washed in; you will
come to blows.
It Is not good for any man to give a pair
of actssors to his sweetheart, for fear of
cutting away their love.
