The Art of Being Liked
By DOROTHY DIX.
Wnui'' liko to b popularT TVouM
you lih bo one of thos fortunat
peop'r vhone comlnff evpry eye
hrtBhtenM, overj' Hp curl Into ..smile,
vry hun4 goes spontaneously out In
Of cour you would. The rpl, neret,
jinlTprsal desire of the human heart Is
for popnlarlty. and If some good fairy
should offer us ' our greatest wish we
should ask for the power to win the ad
miration of our fellow creatures.
But, you say, you are not one of the
lucky few who are born with a Certifi
cate to the Lodge of Good fellowship In
thfrtt mouths, so to speak. Further, you
opine that the art of being a heart
smasner is one. tnat comes oy nature,
and not by grace, and that popularity's
middle name Is really personal magnet
ism, which the gods give, or withhold,
and for whose possession or lack the In
dividual la in no wise responsible.
To a degree this la true. Why ' some
people draw to them every one with Whom
they come In contact can no more be
explained than why the magnet attracts
gun, hi dogs, his game of golf, and
how he could have saved the president
from jnaklng some mortifying mistakes If
only he had been consulted.
Recall the way your heart goea down
Into the very heels of y6ur' slippers when
some woman comes to spend a long af
ternoon with you In order to relate to
you all of her private affairs
Reflect upon your agony, as shn di
lated upon what she said to her husband,
her husband said to her, and her hue
band's mother said to both of them, and
her own mother said to all three of them.
Remember the weariness with which you
listened to the account' of all her tribu
lation with servant girls of every na
tionality of earth..
Forget the endless string of anecdotes
concerning the infant phenomena that In
habit her urscry, nor cease to remem
ber the lurid descriptions that ah e.v
of her encounters with butcher, and baJcef
Or, perchance, the woman that you
dread most, and whose- visits are equal
to a spell of sickness, is the woman
"REFLECT ON THE JfEELJNGB WITH WHICH TOU LISTEN TO THE MALE
the needle. Undoubtedly there are people
po tseed of an aJmeirt hypnotic power
over us, whom we like In spite of our
Mires, and often against our better Judg
ment, They have a -way with them that
we find It Impossible to resist, even
thoagh we may disapprove of them to
the highest degree.
These strangely gifted mortals are,
however, tn a very small minority. They
are ahneet as scares as hen's teeth) and
for the most of our acquaintances we
conM assign a very clear reason as to
why ws Mke or dillke them. -

great Joy, for it shows that ths secret
of popularity Is not In the middle of the
Sphinx, as many suppose, but is simply
an svery-day art at which even the most
bungling of us thay become reasonably
expert If we devote a little Intelligent
time and work to It.
But how shall ws go about learning
this charming accomplishment of being
who comes to see you to pour out her
tale of woe, and who simply slops up
your parlor floor with her tears. Bhe has
divorced her husband, or had trouble
with her children, or lost her money,
or quarreled with her sweetheart' or
gained forty pounds in flesh. All' are
afflictions with which you have nothing
to do, and which you can't help, but
you've got to listen to them not once, but
a hundred times, " for Borrow Is a sweet
morsel that such a woman rolls under
her tongue and never swrllowa and gets
And to gat the full flavor of It she has
to hold up some long suffering sister and
share Its bitterness with her.
Now in this world It Is written that for
very good thing we get we must pay a
corresponding price. If you want to be
popular, if you want to be liked. If you
want to have people glad to see you, are
you willing to deny yourself the v a'
talking about yourself? That's the first

self as a standard of the individual to be

And as sean from any angle 'twas a wlaolr ordered plaa.
For the female of th apPti la tbe mother of the man.
Wtyen alone la tanfled forest the aho-tirar licks her yonoc;
Leaps and kills ths Inrktnr cobra the dark shadowy brakes amonr.
Well It Is her spring is deadly, that hsr fangs her fears efface.
For the famAla of th sRvdes Is protectress of the race.
In th savage tribes th female, built the hat and ground ths corn, "t
And la ceaseless strlf and struggle forged the strength of ths unbon
Then shs fought and tllt And suffered: then her word wss law to manj
For ths female of ths spestss was the leader In the dsn. j
