The Kind of Women Men Admire
By DOROTHY DLX.
' A young girl, who says she Is
very small, writes me a tearful letter
in which she complains that men only ad
mire large, tall, majestic women, and
that no matter how pretty and sweet a
short woman Is
she Is passed over
In favor of some
lady of the goddess
dent feels that her
chances of matri
mony and her hap
piness in life are
blighted by her
lack of Inches,
and she demands
to know why this
Unto which I
mit, for her con
solation, that this
isn't thus. It is
not true that men,
taking them by and large, are enamored
of the tall and stately woman, or that
they prefer her to the little, roly-poly
Of course, viewed from a standpoint
of pur art, "a daughter of the gods,
divinely tall and most divinely fair," has
the call over her abbreviated sister. The
Gibson girl, the Fisher girl, the Christy
girl, all of the various girls with whom
w are familiar on the backs of maga
zines ai.d in the Eunday supplements,
would undoubtedly be about seven feet
high if they were translated Into real
life. Also, they all have a ' lean and
hungry look which -goes all right in a
picture, but it is doubtful if any man
would care for it in a lady love.
In this connection it is interesting to
remark that, in a previous aga, when
there was more marrying going on than
there is now, and a lot more love mak
ing doing, the popular Ideal of feminine
pulchritude was not the telephone post
woman of today, but the small cuddle
some woman that was Just a good arm
ful. The Immortal Shakespeare set the
proper height of woman as pust as high
as a-man's heart. Dickens made his
Bella Wilfer. his Ruth Pinch, his Dora,
his Dot, all of his most adorable women
not only short, but plump. All of
Scott's heart mashers were little women.
The big women did great, heroic stunts,
but it was the little woman that men
loved. Thackeray's favorite heroines,
even to Becky Sharp, were all small.
These great writers knew the hearts of
men, and they bullded on the fact that
while men reverence and worshtp at the
rhfine of the tall, maJeBtlc woman,
mnety-'nlne times out of a hundred, it is
the rute little, cunning woman, with kit
tenish wavb. that ran wrap them around
Of course thrre are many explanation
of this phenomenon. The most obvious
is that It flatters a man's vanity for a

woman to look up to him physically as
well as mentally. A man likes to feel
that he Is superior to his wife, and It
takes one with as much coinage to marry
a woman larger than he Is as It does for
one to marry a woman that is more In
telligent and better educated than he is.
A suj.erlor height .like a superior mind,
s really a handicap rather than an ad
vantage to a girl so far as getting mar
ried is concerned. If you will look about
ou you will see that the girls who have
.lie most beaux, and the women who hold
the matrimonial records are nearly al
ways small women with a very llmitexl
supply of brains.
Of course, tall women are admired and
Jo get married, mostly to very small men.
but that Is nature's effort to hold the bal
ance steady and keep up the average
height of the species, and by the same
Loken and for the same reason the bigger
a man is the more the little woman ap
peals to him.
It is, however, absurd to claim that
men, as a whole, especially admire either
the short or the long type of woman, or
that her height, unless she is a dwarf,
has anything to do with a girl's chances
of getting married. Cupid doesn't go
about with a yardstick, and whether a
man falls in love with a young woman or
not depends upon something much less
tangible than her slie.
Probably every man has a theory, be
fore he meets her, that the divinity who
will stir his pulses win look as if she had
Just stepped down from the top of Mount
Olympus, Just as every man imagines that
he is a worshipper of beauty, end that no
woman who wasn't a real, genuine, bona
flde Venus could ever make his heart go
Yet in spite of this alleged devotion to
beauty men continue to pick out as
wives women who have no standing in
the good looker class. In fart, It is
notorious that beauties seldom make
good marriages, and that while men de
light In burning Incense before a living
picture, when they want to get married
they generally go off and pick out some
lady In the chromo style of art to take
home with tbem for keeps.
It must be a wonderful pleasure and
solace to a woman to be tall, and slen
der, and queenly in appearance, and able
to contemplate the reflection of her fig
ure in every shop window she passes
without getting heart failure; but her
looks do not cut as .much matrimonial ice
as she suppose. Men may be drawn
to her by her beauty at flrsti but they
soon drift away unless she lias some
charm more potent than mere good
looks wtth which to hold them.
Sympathy, comprehension, good nature,
a willingness to amuse and be amused
all that we comprise in the cryptic phrase
"winning ways" these are a thousand
fold more potent In securing the admlra
tlon of men than any height, or peachl
ness of complexion. And In" this is the
gospel of hope for my short and saweo

cannot add one cubit to her stature, bu
she can cultivate a charm of manner an!
