EARLY spring models show skirts with yoke effects, the

At this ieuen
of the year the
regulation winter
styles are varied
, by tha appearance
of early spring
model which (rive

Illustrate one of
these models. It
Is developed In
Shantung silk of
a natural color, ana
favors tha plaited
- skirt set with a
deep heading to
tha close-fitting
yoke. Following
the traditions of
the last two sea
sons, the skirt is
short and permits
.mors than a fleet
ing glance of fins
hosiery and shoes.
A belt of black
patent leather
gives character to
the ensemble. As
a matter of fact, a
touch of black or '
of seal brown is
nted to heighten
the effect of con
trast on many of
. tha new garments.
Tha black note Is
'duplicated in the
shoes, whose tops
( are of the eolor of
the gown.

adopted a hat of
tan colored hemp,
"with facing o f '
black satin. Its
lines are reminis

turban of almost
twelve months ago. .
An Interesting
feature in connec
tion with recent
models is the main
tenance of the

The laced . boot,
with patent leather

If You Marry a Doctor
Some people appear to Imagine that a
doctor always marries a nurse; that ha
lives hbi private as well as his profes
sional life In an atmosphere of ointments
and bandages. It . Is not a ' bit true,
though; for my part, when I married my
husband I knew nothing1 about nursing
my husband told me that he wanted a
wife, not a medical assistant. Inci
dentally, I discovered afterwards how
little I Knew about the "inslda" life
which a doctor and a doitor's. wife
leads. Sine I married a doctor my life has
been -very happy, but alao very strenu
ous. My duties are multitudinous sad
baffle detallment. Tha housekeeping
algn is a very Important matter, for
rtMas;lng a doctor's household ' is not
quite like ordinary housekeeping. Like
all medical men my husband has very
irregular hours he may be called out at
- any time, nlaht or day. It bothered ma a
bit at first, but now I am more or lees
used to it any wsy It Is not any good
worrying or grumbling about It ' The
chief bother of It is that it means the up
setting of mealtimes I never can 'tell
whether Dick will be home for meals at
the proper time or not; but now I make
the best of things, snd ny housekeeping
arrangements do not get radically upset
by my husband's Irregularity. Meals are
always served at a regular time, but If
"the doctor" does not arrive In time, he
doos not have cold dishes afterwards my
carefully planned arrangements of boil
ing water, dlsb covers and hay boxes, en
able me to keep food Hot for him, and to
sen's his meals on a sliding time scale
whan necessary.
A remark made toy my husband before
we were married made me realise that a
she must stlffle her own feelings when
policy demands it, and on 'no account
must give any direct or Indirect stimulus
to scandal mongerlng or' gossip. It Is
rather a difficult matter to precisely de
finewhat 1 mean is. that tha woman
who -marries, a medical man, must be
careful not only to avoid gossiping her
self, but must also be careful that no
gossip takes place where she 4s. Even
though she, herself, takes no part In It,
the mere fact that she was present when
some scandal was discussed, will lead
lople to say, "Well, Mrs. Doctor was
there, so It must be right" It means
that a woman must cultivate tact and
use It for if those kind of things do
happen, they may seriously affect a doc
tor's practice. Again and again medical
men have to give up their practice sim
ply because their wives have not grasped
' what an Important thing it is for them
to play their part welL
my nusoana never niscusses his pa
tients with me, and I think that no sensi
ble womaa who marries a doctor will ex
pect this from him. For In this way. a
medical man has as many confidences be
stowod upon him as a lawyer, and his
reputation would speedily vanish If It
' discovered that he had repealed such
"onficlent-es even to his wife. That Is
why a doctor's fiance should try befora
marriage to subdue any Jealous instincts
which she may possess, and to tultivale
a very full faith and complete trust la
the man whom sh marries. It Is hardly
necessary to say that I never discuss my
husband's natlenta with other nannla .
even " my nearest friends nor do I let
otner people discuss them with me. When
conversation Begins to veer round that
way, I tactfully draw It Into other chan
nels. -
Sometimes people congratulate me upon
always "looking nioe." an, though I am
not vain, such a remark always pleases
me. Honestly, the way In which a doc
tor's wife is dressed may have a quite
large bearing upon tha condition of her
husband's practice. It sounds trivial and
impossible, perhaps, but It la true never
theless, i
It seems needful for m to enter into
tha social Ufa of the neighborhood a good
deal. My husband, of
much time for "gadding," but If he Is to
be a suocesaful doctor It Is necessary for
tha social aide of his life to looUxi
after and that is where a wife oomes In

opportunities for me to very subtly and
tactfully "advertise" my husband when I

"It is a strange thing that we men are
drawn to women by certain qualities that

cause of the appeal that these qualities
make to us. and then that we treat our
wives as If they were entirely different

"You will see a man, for Instance,
marry a woman because of her beauty,
and then berate her for her vanity In
cherishing that beauty. Or you will see
a man marry a girl because she looks

"Huch women made a far mora power

"And then, knowing her need of love,
knowing her need of appreciation, 'I
