Proceeding upon the theory thit what
you want most you are most apt to get,
you get the man.

strength f masculinity on which to lean

A beautiful and wise woman oik c told

You kra onfc si.e who has the grace to
lean. ' The ether 9 llio on who hud
the strength to support.
You reach out. an If yoj actually hud
the tondrfl of llioVlho. to catch the In
terest of strong men. That I why you uru
worth observing, t'orst n:ill I ad.mic you.
but, a Luk Uk I.jvIoj said In. Lucllt"
you tlip niu. of cuuisc, I outtht not to teel
that way... It in not on live that you lean
or want to. lean, iiul tlicib i a.numby
pambyuesk btnealu your grace of leaning
that a pells your ihiiini. .
And 1 gt a b!t impatient with the nice,
big men who sec only your grace and can
not detect your general sluzlnesa of make
up. Vfhy. I have seen men whose strength
of character, whose splendor of will, whose
mental dynamite have swayed thousands
married to clinging vines like you. At
leaat, they hud bec-n an sweet and grace
ful and delicate a . you are.
liut when I saw them they were Junt,
se much vegetation dangling Ineffectively
and IneffeotuaUy on the aturdy oaks. .Mar
riage and the responsibilities which your
kind .are not fitted to meet had reduced
them te querulous, nervous, care-needing,
attention-demanding parasites.
But ypu can. teach the grls who have the
strength to give womanly support at
need the grace to lean at leisure. At least,
you may not actively teach them, but they
can see what your strong and Immediate
appeal to the tenderness and chivalry In
men wins.
Girl who has the strength to support,
have you ever watched from your grown
up place of power and strength, the bright
and khowy antic of a clever child? It
keen mind charmed you. You enjoyed
hearing the baby lips lisp verses. You
reveled In the romping play that revealed
the youngster's health. But what won you
utterly? What awept your heart right out
of your boxom and laid II u 4 tribute at
the little feet? What brought a flood of
tenderness to your whole being so ex
quisite (hut you thrilled and throbbed and
soared heavenward in It? What? One little
nestling gesture, one invtant's Pleasure of
the Volden head against your breast, one
divine second when the baby leaned for
love of your strength against you, tactlly
putting himself In your protecting care.
Jja you wonder, then, that the girl, the
clinging vine, who has the gift of this
exquisite surrender, wins strong men? Much
as they admire the bright, gay, clever,
strong girl, they, too, like you, are really
captured by. the girl who knows how to
trust herself to them, to express love's
deepest meaning. Why don't you learn?
Strength can cling. And the willing clasp
of a vine that does not need support Is
finer tribute , to a man than the cling of
a mere dangler.
Men haven't any sense about these
tilings. They cannot see what is good for
them. Show. them. Learn to attract them
with the tender grace of the clinging
vine. And you can keep them with the
strength that well. It seems to require
a good deal to make marriage last!

Is Cancer Caused by Hot Foods?
. In China, when' , a native' family aits
down to dine, the men of the household
and the male guest, if there be any, are
served first. Their food come to them
(teaming hot. The women must wait until
later to be served and by that time the
food has grown cooler. The men com
mence to eat Immediately the dishes of
Steaming hot food are set before them.
Rice, cow peas and other things ars boiled
Bo much for etiquette. Now for the con
sequences. In , China cancer of the
oesophagus, or throat, is common, among
men. Among Chinese women the disease
la very rare; practically .unknown.
All of thla. and more, was reported by
Dr. E. D. Bashford at the recent annual
meeting of the Imperial Cancer Research
Fund held in London. Dr. Bashford Is
the general superintendent of the fund.
He said,. In referring to the alarming in
roads made by cancer among Chinamen,
that -the frequency of the disease would
be diminished if such practices as the eat-,
lng of very hot rice were discontinued.
The rice the women eat is cool and non
irritating and they rarely contract can
cer. The moral to be taken from the above is
very plain and well worth - heeding,', says
the New York Herald. Hot foods of any
description burn out the' a I'm or of the
throat in time and .cause cancer. Pipe
smokers who continue to smoke after the
stem of the pipe has become heated run
a similar risk of contracting cancer of the
lips. The same la trne of smokers who
Smoke a cigar down to the very butt.
So there are three lessonar- to be learned
from thia year's annual meeting of the
Cancer Research . Fund never ' bolt hot
food, never smoke a pipe the stem of
whrih Is hot, and no matter how good a
cigar or cigarette you may have.' toss it
away after you have smoked two-thirdk
of it.

Interesting Topics.,
The big pill docs of the Mis

conclave In Omaha during tho
week, and much scientific guff,
wa dispensed. It was a
regular highbrow gathering
and lull of good cheer for the
men who call your funny bone
by a Latin name fourteen syl
lables long.
The program waa replete
with subjects for addresses on
topic that have to do with
human ailment, real or Im
aginary, plain and fancy sur
gery and such. It Is noticeable,
though, that the doc haven't
got to the point where they
will take up come of the
impler propositions In which
the big mass of therr fellow
citizens might be Interested.
Among these topic Is fee
splitting. Down east a medi
cal society has this on . its
program, and after a full dis
cussion concluded that It waa
too big a toplo for one body
to settle and passed It on- to
some other.
To an - outsider, one who
doesn't pretend to know too
much about scientific medi
cine. It would seem that the
simple way to dispose of the
fee splitters would be to agree
not to split fees. ; 1
Let the docs amend their
ethical code by adding to tha
rule one that prohibits adver
tising, another that will pro
hibit fee splitting. It they can

Men Who Helped, to Make America
Peter Stuyvesant. who became the gov
ernor of the Dutch province of the New
Netherlands, afterward New York, was
born la Frlesland. In the Netherlands, In
His father waa a clergyman, but Peter
followed ta the ways not of peaca but of
war. He waa Impetuous, turbulent and
He entered the Dutch military service
after his troubled school days, and soon
became director of a colony of the West
India company In the Caribbean sea and
subsequently became governor.
In an attack on a Portuguese Island in
1644 he lost a leg, which he replaced with a
wooden log mounted with sliver, which
started the tradition that be wore a sliver
leg. He was then appointed governor of
the New Netherlands, and when he ar
rived In New Amsterdam now New York,
he found the colony In poor hape.
Hla tern measure oon restored the
colony, but, unfortunately for Stuyvesant,
he waa forced by superior numbers to sur
render to the English. He returned to Hol
land to vindicate himself, and returned to
his farm at Bowerle, near the city of New
York, where he died in August. 1672.
Washington Irving said of him:
"He was, in fact, the very reverse of Ms
predecessors, being neither tranquil and
Inert like Walter the Doubter, nor restless
and fidgeting, like William the Testy, but
a man, or rather a governor, of such un
common activity and decision of mind, that
he never sought nor accepted the advice of
others, depending bravely upon his single
hesd, as would a hero of yore upon his
single arm, to carry him through all dif
ficulties and dangers. To tell the simple
truth, be wanted nothing more to complete
him as a statesman than to think always
right, for no one can say but that he al
ways acted as he thought.
