Why Do Women
A writer In the San Francisco Chronicle,
evidently a wamnn, asserts the custom of
afternoon calling Is fast dying out and In
sists It never hsd any meaning or cause
for being. The writer continues:
"About the custom there was never any
real spirit of social Intercourse: no fellow
shlp, no gaiety, no lmnptus or argument
or differing points of view. It was a cus
tom insipid, restricted and petty a mere
habit of putting In an appearance at cer
tain stated hours in certain stated houses.
Nothing came of It. either good or bad.

she decently could. But as for enjoying

"You mean that the girls you would
marry attract you by the same way of
dressing that the ones you would not
marry affect?" I asked, so suddenly
stricken with a white light of revelation
that I couldn't quite be sure I compre
hended. That's It! I suppose a roan's a fool for
being disappointed when he does not find
what he does not deserve: but it's a knock
out blow to his best self, to the Illusions
he has cherished, when he discovers that
a girl Isn't modest."
Just at that moment he shot an angry,
fierce look across at you In your low
necked, too low-necked gown.
The dressmaker and your vanity had
cheated you. I raw it in that look. A
dream bad become a nightmare. The best

but clasps the loving flesh and soars with
It into realms unspeakably more wonder
fully ecstatic than passion ever opens, was
lost to you. And that look of angry disap
pointment told that the man resented your
t willful destruction of an Ideal.
Dressmakers' bills are notoriously exor
bitant; but the price you paid for that
t gown was preposterous.

merely this that women dislike each other,
naturally and Inevitably. You must not
really blame them, for they rannot help It;
they were born to dislike ench other being
born to like men so much that they have
neither time nor energy left to like any
thing else in the world. You do not, as a
rule, shine In the company of persons who
are antagonistic and obnoxious to you;

An old woman who always seemed to
be cheerful and happy was ence asked by
a young girl how she retained her joyous
outlook on life.
"I have three simple rules," said the
woman, "which I have followed since early
youth. The first Is this: Commit some
thing to memory every day. something
good. It needn't be much; three or four
j words will do. Just a pretty bit of a poem.
or a Bible verse.
"The second rule Is: Ixwk for something
pretty every day; and don't skip a day, or
It won't work.
My third rule Is now mind, don't skip a
day: Do something for somebody every
day. That is all there Is to It, dear."
These rules will work always and every
where, for women as well as for girls.

They are so plain any one can understand
them, so simple any one can carry them
out If they have the will.
Take the first rule, for instance. Not
only will the habit of committing some
beautiful things to memory every day make
of the mind a valuable storehouse, but It
will broaden one's outlook on life through
contact with the thoughts of others.
If one strives to see something pretty
every day the habit will soon become so
fixed that all of life Will seem to be seen
through rose colored glasses. And as for
doing something for some one every day
this is the best rule of all. It Is a rule
which will turn a farmhouse warm In the
chill of winter, and a tenement cool' In the
