The man of today Is accused of being
a coldly business-like person whose heart

That is almost as true as the sweeping
assertions which deny to the woman of

who has been given

Of course, when you talk to mothers
find fathers about having their daughters
taught some occupation by which they
can make a living, they always reply that
about the time you get a girl fitted for
a career, and have spent a small fortune
in preparing her for It, she ups and mar
ries. This may be true In many cues,
but the special training I not thrown

education Is broadening, and makes for
human happiness and usefulness, because
It opens new doors to the Individual.

this beyond the bounds of normal human
action Into almost machine-like pre
cision. Money does seem to be the god of the
modern world, but, after all, it is mere
.seeming. And underneath his hurry and
bustle and high tension and Irascibility
the man of today Is 'a kindly, fatherly

when his worst is demanded.
After all, people are very much what
we think them. They respond to our
Ideals and to our demands. If we look
at the world kindly and feel that human
nature Is a pretty decent thing, and that
most men are gentlemen and not raven- i

Narrow Religious Prejudices
By ELLA WHEELER WILCOX.
(Copyright. 1915. Star Company.)
It seems curious In these days of
broad thinking and liberal religions to
find a friendship Imperiled Ui rough a
difference of religious belief.
A young woman
writes as follows:
"Why cannot we
all believe the
same doctrines? I
have a friend who
threatens to cease
being my friend;
she is a sincere
and faithful Ro
man Catholic and
so are my par
ents, but I am
not a follower of
that creed. My life
has been full of
minor trials, but I
welcome them all
and try to make
the best of my
situation. My God comes first of all In
my thoughts. In Him I trust, but this
fact does not satisfy my friend. She
really believes I am doing wrong; It
is impossible for ber to change her
views and Impossible for me to change
mine. My mother Is an angel, and I
have never told tier that I do not fol
low her creed because It would pain
her too much; but my friend knows it
and worries a great deal about me and
threatens to stop all associations with
me If I do not come Into her line of
thought. What can I do about It?"
Meantime here Is another case of a
Protestant young woman who possssfts
all desirable qualities, but she refuses to
marry a man because he Is a Catholic.
The young lady has chanced upon an
exception to the rule of liberality which
marks the Koman Catholic. he should.

If ever you are suddenly, some
where, in your snug room of a win

red wine at a friend's table, or play
ing bridge with your friend's friends,
caught with a strange sense that
mother earth halted for Just a
breath, Jarring the steady old feet
under your body, that time's heart
not let the situation distress her. Neither
will the woman who is capable of a
genuine love, which would make her a
worth while wife Hnd mother, allow a
matter of creed to separate her from a
good man who is fond of her.
Different creeds are different roads to
the same goal. Several of us may start

may take the long cut; one may go over

may go by water; one may go by motor
