Her. husband is unfaith ful to her, and I think I ought to tell her about It. It seems to me bo tragic for her to. waste her 'unselfish devo tion upon one so unworthy of her. .My mother says I will be no true; friend to my friend 'lf ' I 'so much as ' whisper, the truth '. to her. What would , you do. stand Idly " "tid see a good woman throw her uA-ay upon an . unworthy husband, or open her eyes to the truth and then help her to. get over it. W "SINCERE." -; .'

Is she, giving that life, up because she is blindly devotd to an who de- ' celves her?....' v ' ' . ti':h nrtde. self respect,. ' self rell- trr it sne to tell his wife all about it and be for given. What would I want you to do for me iu such a case as that? I would want you to tell me and tell me quick. I don't want to waste my life "pretending," I'd rather live alone on a desert Island with the buzzards for' company than to pour out my heart to one who deceived me I'd rather scrub floors for a living than -to take one penny from a man who couldn't tell me the truth, and nothing but the truth. Yes! I can- see how a woman might hesitate before the left a man who is the father of her children, not only for the' children's sake, but for her own. Women get lazy, they get selfish, they get material as they grow older. I know women who ' were' once decent, self-re specting beings who live now with men and pretend to love them, and they hate the very ground those men walk on and live a lie from one dreadful day's end to the other; I might be one of those women, I might prefer ease, quiet, comfortable deceit to honest misery and desperate courage, but I'd want the' chance to choose. The old-fashioned woman didn't want the chance. "Don't tell me," she sob bed, "I don't want to know." Of course she didn't want to know why should she?- What could she do? The modern woman?

Th United States district forester for Mo tana and Idaho estimated a loss to gov. .rr.nt nyiA aulfninfnff timber of 1.000.000. 000 feet, or a total of 121,800,000, caused by 1,679 fires, 66 per cent of which started on the tailroad rights of way and in spite of good cooperation by the railroads. The; great forest fires in Minnesota during 1910, which caused such loss. of lift and .suffering in the towns of Spooner and ; peaudette, with million dollars worth" of valuable property and timber, wera due to four fires, three of which were -started by locomotive sparKi.. Four ' tk insurance companies which make a specialty of Insuring flour, mills and elevators paid more than JlM.OOlr in 1910 for losses due to thja cause. The Cottop,; Insurance Association of Georgia has reported that so per eeni.oi couon in trnnannrtaiion are due to loco motive sparks. A grain aeaiers , muiuai . fjre Insurance company reports each year from 17 to 28 per cent of its losses due to the, same, cause.-T ., The. fire records of manufacturing risks which, have been published in the quar- terllea of the National Fire Protection association show a very material percent age of fires from locomotive sparks, and yet taken as a whole, we would not con sider manufacturing risks as particularly susceptible to the spark hasard. The record of fires in fifteen classes of man ufacturing risks showed about i per cent to be due to this cause. Insurance En gineering . .. ... . - Sparrows Attack Little Ctrl..

How often have I told you two kids not to go in swim ming, sed Pa. There are a lot of other ways to keep cool, I know thare are, I sed to Pa, but thare tint many ways for a kid to keep cool.

In this world there are many strange lights and, famous ones to see. There is the place where you may find the mother, with a round baby in the comforting hollow between her knees, and over her shoulder bends the man who loves them and labors for both. This is a happy and fair thing to see, and there are many folks who pass that way. . Some stop to look with the vyes of their hearts turned backward, some look with tender smile In their eyes, some with hope that they'll he able some time to stop at that place themselrea and sever come away. Oh, and then there's the place where a little shabby child presses her grimy baby hands and her wistful little nose against the shop window and watches another little child tn embroidery and hand-woven linen pick out the "regular life-size" doll that she likes best That is a most sad place, and folks pass there quickly, or duck their facee away so they will not see, Then there Is the pJaee of lovers, and everybody ' goes there to see! Eyery second page in the Book of the World Is a pic ture of lovers. And in that place the honeymoon shines stickily, sweetly, all the time, and there's a great sound of kisses and sighs. . Oh, yes, there, are a heap of strange sights and famous ones to see. And one ef them, if .you go over the hills and far away, or if you stroll down the dust of Broad way, you'll some day, any day, see a shrouded creature called Tims, the wish to stay In his eyes, but his feet always hurrying, hurrying and behind him, clutching his flying gown, coaxing and weeping, and wheedling, and some few industriously patting cold cream and rouge into their faces, some ' in shell-pink veils, because 'tis said they throw the rosy light of. youth over an aging face, stream a vast procession of the gentle sex Intent on making Time forget and dally just a little while. This isn't exactly a pleasant placet," whwottUvAA this thing. ' The Perfection ; of Practice Br BBATKiqS FAIRFAX. "Love your said I, then I sighed, and ' then I gasen upon her sweetly. For I think I do this sort of thing par ticularly neatly." And that is Just what no girl wants a lover who sighs, and adores, and pay compliments.' and Hatters .himself that he "does this sort' of thing particularly neatly."' ' ' ' ' ; . She doesn't want a praetleed levari She doesn't want a man to eorae to her with every lesson learned.' she waste to teach Wm. ' And that-la a Joy that very few wo men have.' The men who pay oompU menu easily and gracefully Are. unfor tunatejy the kind-of men who get the opportunity to pay' them eftenwt - They are the kind who are most In the company of women, and It is their flattery and the ease with which they; pay it that does so much in turning th heads of the very young girls Just at the time when It is most lraportafit that their heads should be set on straight. They are smooth, and easy and grace ful, They handle a love phrase er a compliment as easily as they handle the fork and many ef them began handling both at the same immature age. The ease with which they compllmentj the knowledge of born experience that tells them Just what kind of a compU ment win have the finest entering wedge, means trouble to every girl who believes them. . Their compliments are ie assy to pay they are. paid without sincerity. The tongue has become 10 adept at "this sort of thing; that It utters compliments that are bom On the tongue's edge, and that never cam from th heart , . Ease in love making is th mark of love that should put th girl to whom it . is mad on her guard. Better a tongue-tied lover; better a lover wha stammers and halt and can't find the right word and so use th wrong on or says nothing; better such a lover than the lover who is glib. If a man pays few compliments and thos are lam and halt and awkward, more to hie credit, I say, than if he has a host constantly marshalled at his tongue's end ready to march out and capture any little feminine heart that files by. :. No girl wants InsbueIty In her lover. Sh ha met it in her friend, which is a "misfortune. To meet It In a lover is a tragedy. Therefore, I. beg of her that she place not a large value on a love phrase or a compliment that la the perfection of grace. ' , - : That mean practice. And practice ia Such affair mean insincerity.
