What Man Should Yo Marry?
By DOROTHY DUL
A woman who is getting her fourth
divorce, and who should have cut her
wisdom teeth on husbands and know
whereof she speaks, advtaea all (lrla to
marry old men.
She says that a
young man dpes

H'm I wonder?
Of course there
Is an old proverb
that haa been
banded down from
mother to daugh

says, "It Is bet

man's darling than a young man's slsve."
But Ilka other prorerbs this one Is only
true In spots and under certain condi
tions, and, as a general thing, the girl
who marries an old man. thinking that
ha will make of her a pampered pet,
finds that she has been grievously gold
bricked in the transaction. She has got

matrimonial risk on a men? Twenty?
Thirty? Forty? Fifty? Sixty?

He Is callow, egotistical, self-centred,
selfish, undeveloped, unstable, and mar.

There's a divorce coupnn that goes with
nearly every marriage license that Is
Issued to a boy of twenty.
No very young man ever thinks of
anything but Ills own pleasure. Life
has not disciplined him and taught him
selfrontrol, and so when things go
wrong In the homo end he feels upon
his shoulders the burdens of family
llfe, he Is dead sure to take out on his
wife the prlca of his own folly. The
gaiety and a muse menu that rightly be
long to his time of life call to him. and

stead of honking away in automobiles ir
two-stepping at dances, or roaming the
green golf links, he Is the family gloom,
Beside which, no boy of 39 years or
thereabouts knows what he wanta In a
wife, and the one best bet is that he'll
tire of whomever ha did marry, no mat
ter what a concatenation she may be of
feminine graces and virtues. Therefore,
girls, as you value your happiness,
never, never, never marry a mere boy.
Kidnaping is a life sentence at hard
labor in matrimony as it is In crime.
Thirty Is a good risk. By the II roe a
man is 3 years old his character I, at
least, well enough formed for a woman
to be able to look him over and see
what she's getting. When she marries
blm she Isn't marrying a human riddle,
the answer to which no one can gaesa,
as she does when she marries a boy.
Also a man at that age has bees batted
up against the world long enough to
knock some of the conceit out of him,
and a little consideration for other peo
ple Into blm.
Agalnat thirty It may be said that a
msn still retains many of the grand
Turk Ideas of his youth concerning
woman, and that he will expect any
woman that he marries to be properly
grateful to him for the honor that he
confers upon her. Also, that moat men
at that age axe Just in the hardest part
of their fight to get a foothold In busi
ness so that the women who marry them
must be willing to do their part to make
many sacrifices, endure many priva
tions and to be content with the per
functory attention cf a man whose
.... heart . centered on getting along.
But In favor of the man or thirty It
may also be said that be haa the fir
and passion of youth, for him are still
the glory and the circling wings of love
before romance pales and sentiment dies
down into ashes. Ha can give to his
wife that most precious of all boons,
comradeship, and it matters not to the
woman wo gets this whether her rugs
are Oriental of New Jersey, whether
she eats off Sevrea or Iron atone china.
80, if you marry at man of thirty, girls,
you'll stand very good chance of never
having to buy a ticket for Reno.
Forty, though, is an even better age
for a husband than thirty because all of
the advantagea that a man possessed at
thirty he still has at forty with two ad
ditional qualifications that make bia mat
rimonial stock a gilt edge security in
which a prudent woman may safely In

Moreover, the man of forty has sown
