When Woman Proposes
A I'll.
So fur an woman's happiness and well
being are concerned, women- right to
vote Is of email importance compared to
woman's right to pop the question. The
emancipation that
will do. more to free
the feminine sex
than anything; else
w 1 1 1 be achieved
when women break
the sent! mental
bonds thai bind them
far more than do
any political fetters.
When you think
about It seriously
nothing Is more
grotesque than' that
a woman should ' be
forced to take merely
a passive attitude
in the most Important
matter that ever
concerns her. Hor
happiness, her phy
sical and . moral well-being, her pros
perity, her. very bread and butter, de
fend, in the great majority of cases,
tipon her petting, the right sort of hus
band, but custom dots, not allow her to
raise a finger, to secure to herself this
desirable adjunct.
On the contrary, if she is a perfect lady
she Is supposed to sit around and suck
lier thumbs, and pray heaven to be kind
to her, Instead of hustling out after the
best thing in sight.
Nobody - denies that marriage - means
more to a woman than it does to a man,
and that it Is more Important for. her to
be' pleased in her hueeband than' It Is for
him to be pleased with a wife, because
the man who acquires' a matriiflwnlal
lemon run ret n wn v frnm-'H wl.ll t Via
woman can't. If he makes an unfortunate
marriage he "flWr h busineam or profes
sion, and a thousand outside interests to
distract 'his attention, while ' her hotixon
is bounded b her wedding ring and she
has nothing tourn her 'thoughts away
from her'mlaery. '
There Is. no valid argument that can
be advanced against giving-woman 'the
same right to select her life matt that a
man has. The only objections to it are
sentimental and conventional, and, cur
iously enough, these are put forward by
men who are .not wise enough to realize
what a delightful and thrilling emotional
experience they are missing in not being
wooed by soma charming lady.
In a reoent letter I have received from
a gentleman violently set against woman
taking the Initiative in love-making, he
raises the sympathetic point of the crush
ing rebuff that it would be to a woman
If she proposed to some eligible gentleman
ond was refused.
"She would not only risk this, but total
loss as Well, should she plump the ques
tion at the wrong time, and by giving pre
mature notice of her Intentions scare
nway some perfectly good, but too wary
provider," opines my correspondent.
Not at all. Far from it. Of course,,
there are risks In every venture, espec
ially so In courtship, and there Is no other
gamble that Is to much a matter of
change as the game' of hearts. The woman
who pops the question to a man will 'be
in the same danger of having him say
that he'll be a-brother to her that a man
is of having a woman .volunteer to be his
inter Instead of his wife.
Hut the feminine heart is quite, as much
a ruu.jer nan, and as Sure to rebound
me masculine heart, and there will be
no aiaxmmg lists of casualties, as the
rfcauitrof unreauited love' V '
fNo will any woman die of-chagrin be
cause the- man she asked, to marry her
eald "no;" Indeed.' It will add enormously
Ui' the lum 'of feminine happiness; for a
woman who is in love with a man to be
able to. put-the question squarely up to
hlro.i and shave, it derinltejy decided one
way or theother, instead of hanging on,
ar.afr,yearf' on the anxious bench
trying-by indirect methods ta attract his
attention, and hoping against hope that
In some Way she will to able to ensnare
him up te the altar. . ,' .
A great many women object to giving
women the right to propose because they
em to think' that' If women could pop
the question men would be obliged , to
marry whether they wanted .to or not,
hecaiise notgentleman could 'summon .uo
fiough courage to say no to a lady. What
i ry day of the week women
apply to men for positions In their of
fices, or stores, or factories, or women
try to borrow money of them, and men
show no hesitation In turning down their
requests. Yet when she is out' of a Job or
needs money, the matter Is of Just about
as much moment to a woman as getting
a husband would be.
Neither does my, correspondent's con
tention that it would scare away a pos
sible husband for a woman to propose to
him square with experience .or observa
tion. We are all vain, men and women
alike. Nothing convinces us- of the su
perior Intelligence, Justice and. discrim
inating taste of a person as for him or
her to single us out of a crowd for spe
cial adminatlon. Nothing" draws us to
an individual so Irresistibly as his or her
fincy for us, and we Just naturally love
those who love us.
A man would have to be more than
human if he was not pleased and flattered
by the knowledge that a woman loved
him -and had picked him out from ail the
rest of mankind for her mate. Also It
would direct many a man's attention to
the Jewel in his pathway that otherwise
his wandering eyes rnlght never discover.
Many men lack Initiative. They do not
even see the good opportunities In ther
own business uiitil somebody else points
them out to them. Nearly all men are
stupid where women are concerned, but
nowever dull women are In other in
spects, they are wise lit love, and they
know what they want in a husband, so it
would be enormously Jlo a' man's advan
tage If a woman was free to go to him
and explain why . she thought that it
would be for their mutual good for them
to' enter Into a lire partnership.
Furthermore no timid brother peed be
alarmed, for he could always decline if
he so desired. .

wanted to, but' I don't know What was
the matter with him, unless it was on
account of one night he wanted to kiss
me good night, but 1 wouldn't because I
thought I hadn't gone with him long

about two weeks. What would you ad

Fashion still recognizes the beauty of simplicity, as Bhown by this
evenhig frock of jvhite liberty. The bodice is made of an Insertion of
beaded net passing under the arms and finished by a blouse of the
liberty. Over he under-frock df liberty is a veiling of tulle, which
forms a blouse cut square, and little Greek draped elbow sleeves. A
rose holds at the shoulder a Greek drapery that falls' oyer the skirt,
consisting of three flounces bordered In the pearl beading. OLIVETTE.
This tea gown of rose petal taffeta Is so elaborate In its lines that
It will do famously for formal wear. The bodice is a loose kimono
with small elbow sleeves, and It blouses dowQ to the hips in a long,
easy line. The draped girdle encircles tho hips softly and fastens In
back In a huge butterfly bow. From this falls a flounce of white silk
lace over the ttklrt, which shows a second flounce having a deep point
in front. A flat fold finishes the skirt at the bottom. OLIVETTE.

tried. The reasons nualnt falne hair, to
my mind, nrc sufficient, it Is expensive.
It lakes nriunge it properly. If

It Is iitiW-roiYilng. it Is uncomfortable find

However, when Ihe moment comes that
falnc hair must be rere-rtod to. wear it to
the beet ndvnntage,
t have l'.ttle svmpathy with the writer
who attempt to frighten the public In re
gard to the danger that comes from false
hnlr. 1 am familiar with the procens of
preparing It for the. market and believe
thot when it reaches the public It Is per
fectly hyslentc ai.d tree from dirt, germe
or Impurities. If women would keep their
false lotka ss clean as they are when
they buy them, one of tho objections to
wearing' artificial hair would cease. It Is
true that ft good deal of the Inferior hair
used is "flit from the hofcds of Chlname.i
and convicts;" It la also true thrt the
wool that make pur gowns and our un
derwear is cut from the backs of eh-ep;
cue Is as clean ns the other by the time
It renchea the consumer.
Improved methods of treating false hair
Is one of tHe reasons of Its expense. A
good grade or human hnlr Is also becom
ing scarce, d.e to the change in the cus
toms amontt tho peasant women ot Euro

it hurts me very much to sea young
filrls wearing artificial additions in their
coiffure. Artifice has no place near a
young face; nothing so quickly ages it '
ami destroys Its peculiar charm. If a
vminir vlei'a hnlr la not sufficient for the
j mcderate fashions suitable to her age,
she should try. to Improve her hair ana

m-lll overheat tho scalp, the rough
i weft that holds tho hair irritates the

provement therefore is to discard all ex

A a woman grows older the scalp does
not respond so quickly to treatment and
'sometimes with the best efforts the
amount of hair can tnly be kept sta
tionary. Tho older face needs more hair
to soften it. and an elaborate coiffure
suits a mature woman where It Is neithet

United States of Canada
The Imperial legislation known as the
'British North American Act" provid
ing for the voluntary union of lhj whole
of British North America In one con
federation, passed the Parliament forty
seven years ago, March 28, 1807.
Thus began the .
"Dominion of Can
ada," or, as we
may with perfect
propriety put it,
"The Vnited States
of Canada."
Thus, without the
expenditure ot a
single dollar, or the
loss of a single
drop of blood, was
established a great
and mighty nation,
larger in area than
toe Roman empire '
when it was at Its best, tond destined to
write Its name in large and enduring
characters upon the page of human his
tory. A nation Canada most assuredly Is In
very important sense of the word. It
makes its own laws, manages Its own af
fairs, and holds within Its own hands the
shaping of its destiny. '' In certain fed
eral matters, it la true, the dominion
looks to London, Just as. In similar mat
ters, New Tork," Virginia and the other
states look to Washington; but In all
essential respects the provinces of the
dominion' are quite as free as are the
states of the American union..
When tho first Parliament of the do
minion met at Ottawa, with Lord Monck
aa viceroy and Kir Johu A. Mac Donald
as premier. Its population wu about
1000,000. There are today within Its bor
ders 9.000,000 of as fine a people as -are
to be found on the faee of the earth a
people thoroughly modern vand up-to-date,
full of the spirit of freedom and
progress, and firmly dedicated to the
work of advancing a scientific, rational
and human rlvillration.

States by 500.000 square miles, and while
some of its territory, on account of its
proximity to the Artie Circle, is forever
beyond the pale of civilisation, the
greater part of It Is admirably fitted for
human habitation. The vast prairies of
the great northwest Include" the most fer
tile soils of the earth, and are already the
home of a large and steadily growing
population. Indeed the growth of the
Canadian northwest Is one of the mar
vels of the lastquarter oentury, and It
is absolutely certain the region is des
tined to be tho seat of populous state,
and to constitute one of the chief grun
arles of the world.
It la quite within the bounds of rea
soit and probability to think of Canada
as having, by the end of the century, a
population of 76,000.000 or 100,000,000. with
mighty cities, a network of railways,
manufacturing plants everywhere dotting
its vast territory, a commerce as wide as
the world; sod, - crowning it all, a
thoroughly up-to-date social order, rest
ing on the bedrock ..principles of dem
ocracy and progress.
Canada may never be united with us
politically; but It Is absolutely certain
that It will ever be with us in trend and
purpose, in, policies and principles, and
therefore, In the firm-set determination
to remain true to the great cause of
human liberty and rational advancement.
