Perhaps neither is aware ot Itself; but,

"A man friend ot mine says that love

affection and love are tho same thins.

Jealousy, Won't you explain the matter
to me?" writes Edith.
What is loveT is a question that has
been asked almost ever since the world
began. The answers to It are about as
numerous as are the Individuals that
populate the earth. Even the Ideals of
love differ according to climate, race
and creed. A very clever man recently
said to me. "Love is a matter of geog
raphy." Love Is a matter of all sorts
of externals, which ft would be hard to
define. But In the ideal state love ousfht
to be and mean and stand for certain
very definite things.
First of all, love oufcht to be unselfish
and" seldom Is! Peal love ought to con
sider the happiness of its beloved, as
well as Itself. It ought to be faithful
and tender and true, and because It Is
these things In itself It ought to believe
in them in its beloved.
Jealousy la not part of love It Is love s
crueleet enemy, and it slays real love.

Those ot a practical mind will prefer
the outing garb ot some one of the
modish colors. One may select a suit
of dull brown, of Belgian blue, rose or
bright green, and likewise models of a
purple color, aa well as of deep yellow.
A very attractive sport suit Is made of
rose-colored stockingette, the skirt on
straight and moderately wide lines and
supplied with troueer-llke pockets, whloh

pearl buttons The coat Is much longer
than the usual suit model, reaohlng, as
It does, to the knees. It has pockets of
the reticule order, hung from the wide

two large buttons and buttonholes directly
Of course It is Inevitable that the fur

suit, and in this particular Instance the
