Summer Relaxation and Morals
By ANN LISLK.
There aa otic a girl whoa pel maxim

"If o restful." said she, "to be Just

the whim of the moment."
And she Uvod up to her theory.
One summer she met a very charming
youth who was not at all elifiU and not
at all matrimonially Inclined. HI meager
salary sufficed to buy bona bona for the
new love who came Into hla life every
few month, but It would not hav pur

Th rocking chair brigade watched her
becoming more and more penstve. It ac

Hince there were no men about to Im
press, the girl wore her quietest and most
demure clothes and did absolutely no
peeing. Itae even began embroidering a
waist for th winter's wear.
At that stage ot the game a neat Man
arrived. The girl looked so sweetly do
mestlo with a pensive expression nn her
face and sewing In her hands that th
Real Man was Impressed. Through Ms
mind there flitted a vagus Idea that here
waa the very wife for him.
For a week the girl waa ejuiet and sub

make an Impression, succeeded In making
one. And then th tonic of maacultn at

The rocking char brigade gasped and

Eternal Conflict Between Sexes
Bj DOROTHY DIX.
.4 t '. j
- In a recent divorce case a letter waa
Introduced in the evidence In which the
maa wrote these word to the woman:
Tou once told me that the reason
that you hated me
was Just because

band. I now think
that th only rea
son that I hated
you waa Just be
cause you were a
woman, and that
th tkSLgs that I
objected to tn you
wr merely th
fault of your sex."
I wonder It this

bondage to hire. Bh rebelled at being

whims and caprices. Hla society got upon
her nerve because she had It In over
doses.. If he hadn't been her husband, If ho
had been a nelgtibor or a guest she
would have liked Mm well enough.
"Wlf" and "husband" are either the
sweetest words or the bitterest that we
ever take upon our tongue, and their
flavor depends not upon what the woman
or maa that we are united to may be, or
not but upon our atat ef mind.
Many a woman bates a perfectly good
man for no reason on earth except that
he Is her husband. Many a man hates a
woman who la little short -of angello Just
because She Is his wlf, and that I th

united In the holy bond of wedlock. It
I against matrimony aa an Institution. It
is the en of bondage that they cannot
endure with patience, not th fault of
a particular Individual.
Also what many men and women object
to in their wives and husband la not
some personally disagreeable quality, but
the peculiarities of th opposite sag.
For Instance, there are women whoa

Such a woman would be perfectly happy

his money for lace curtains for the par

Personally th man may be good ami
kind and generoua and tender and true.
At aa Individual aha can find no faurt

him ar th faults of his sex. It shocks
and disgusts her that he wants to go to
prise fights, and likes to shoot thing, and
that h occasionally stays out too lata
and drinks more than Is good for him.
In a word, he isn't ladylike and con
genial to her.
And there are many men who object
to their wives on exactly the same
ground. They find fault with th ladles
because they have the qualities of women,
and not men.
Kor example, when a mas derides his
wife for her ignorance and accuses bsr
of being a hare-brained' Idiot, It Is al
ways beoause sh doesn't know tho
same Iln of things that he does. Bh may

It is literally trm that what the aver

It Is th Ineradicable differences be
