Master of sweet and and loving lore,
Give us the open mind, (
To know religions means no more,
No less, than being kind.
Give ns the comprehensive Bight
That sees another's need,
And let our aim to set things right
Prove God inspired our creed.
Givo ns the soul to know our iin
That dwell in flock and herd,
The voice to fight man's shameful sin
Against the beast and bird.
Give us a heart with love so fraught
For all created things,
That even our unspoken thought
Bears healing on its wings.
(Jive us religion that will cope
"With life's colossal woes,
And turn a radiant face of hope
On troops of pigmy foes.
Give us the mastery of our fate
In thoughts so warm and white,
They stamp upon the brows of hate
Love's glorious zeal of light.
Give us the strong, courageous faith
That make of pain a friend,
And calls the secret word of death
"Beginning," and not "end."
j Why Love Making is Now a Lost Art
Bj DOROTHY D1X.
ThOM who attempt to find a reason
for what the late Sllaa Wegg would call
"the decline and fall off In matrimony,"
overlook on Important reason why wed
dings occur less
they used to do.
It la because the
art of making love
lias become one of
the lout arts. The
modern man no
more know how
to conduct a court
nhlp poetically and
he knows how to
wear., lace ruffles
and a a word grace,
lully. When he at
tempts either he

and his proposal Is
a likely to go wide of the mark aa his
of course, men still make love. Just aa
they make cutlery by machinery, and
turn out colored glaaa la patented
moulds, but. aa in the race or time tna
art of tempering steel to the f lneneaa of
the Damascus blade and of staining glass,
certain exquisite shades has been lost, so
lias the fine art of making love.
The beautiful Cowers of speech with
which a lover onca wooed a rnsid have
withered and died and been thrown away.
The voice of the aerenade has been stilled.
No man now writes sonnets to hla lady's
eyebrows, or risk getting the grippe
standing out In the night winds waiting
for her shadow to crosa the window.
Courtship haa become aa prosaic a
matter as ordering one'a dinner, or mak
ing a deal In real estate, and the modern
man now goea about It in a businesslike
manner. He makes a note In his memor
andum book to call Maud up on the
telephone. Just as he makes a note to
call Smith and Brown about a bill of
hardware, and ha eends his office boy
cut to buy her candy. Just aa he orders
hi broker to buy a thousand sharea of
P. Q. D. for him. If s all In the day's
work; and If his love turns out unhappily
ha conducts himself pretty much as If his
buslneas venture resulted unfortunately.
In either case ha shrugs hla shoulders
and takes a couple of drinks to the men
tal toast of better luck next time.
He does not go off and commit auteida
because of a broken heart. Nor does be
how himself before tha cruel fair one
so thin and wasted, so haggard and dis
traught with lova that it melU tha heart
in her bosom, aad ahe rewards such
faithful lova as It deserves. Nay Yerlly,
He goes about his affairs as usual. His
tailor sees no need of altering his meas
urements for a new spring suit, and when
he meets up with tha lady of the ready
mitten, they dlscusa tha kind of weather
we are having and tha base ball pros
pects for tha season.
Things were not always thus. There
waa a time when the man in love laid
aside all businesa and devoted himself to
the exclusive pursuit of the lady on whom
he had set his affections, He was al
waya sighing at her feet. He wooed her
in Impassioned language. He risked his
life to save her. lie made her feel that
aha was all of earth and heaven and
tha great hereafter to him, and that if
ahe said hlra nay. hla blasted Ufa would
be upon her soul.
Bless you. In those days a girl didn't
have to play second fiddle la a man's
profession, and know that she was only

wasn't doing anything that he considered
really Important. Ilka administering pills
to a patient, or getting a client off for

There were no cold storage lova letters

Advice to Lovelorn

Definition: The flirt, in common language, is the lady who eltj
near the moon (or any far away place where she won't get herself
scorched) and with a long-handled feather from the vanity bird and a
perfectly innocent face tickles the son of Venus under the ribs and the
sensitive chin until he cries.
At first he laughs oh, very hard (he doesn't know any better
and he can't help himself anyway) but he winds up drowned in tears
and rage. And at first the man on another star for she won't let hin
get too close (so far and no farther) he laughs, too, aad believes tu
his heart that she's just a merry soul. But he changes his mind when
he digs to the bottom of her delicate Idea of cruelty.
The "genus homo" is warned that when be gets out his spyglaas
