Stealing a Husband
By DOROTHY VIX
In a scandal in high life that la now
before the public, the acgrleved wife
charg-ea In her ault againet the other
woman that the aald other woman alien
ated her hueband'a affectlona from her
"by the use of blandishments and flat
teries." Precisely so. Thats practically al
ways the way it ia done. Tha recipe for
being a siren is as simple aa the rule
for making cake. X woman has only to
take a cupful of the sugar of flattery,
a few spoons of the butter of soft words,
a little of the milk of human comrade
ship, a eouple of egg shells full of sym
pathy, throw in a little flavor of pleas
antness, and stir all well together, and
bake In the warm oven of affection,
and she's got a confection that will
make any man come and eat out of he
Instead of aaklng for our sympathy, a
wife should be ashamed to admit that
some other woman has alienated her
husband's ' affections from her by the
use of blandishments and flatterlcw.

How Two Women Talked It Over:
Little Experience Illustrates Great Point
By ADA PATTERSON'.
They sat across the aisle from each
other In the waiting room of a Jersey
City railroad station. It was one of the
darkest of the dreary days of a week of
dismal weather before Christmas.
Neither of them wanted to be there nor
did any of the others. The floor was
damp from the passage of many rubber
clad feet. The walls were dingy. The
windows were veiled by sleet. The depot
attendants were morose. The waiting
passengers were depressed.
Suddenly the brown eyed woman
gathered up her skirts and her courage.
She crossed the aisle and timidly took a
seat beside the gray-eyed woman with
the worried frown between her straight,
"I'm going to do something very rude,"
she said in an ingratiating little voice.
"But you have such beautiful vigorous
hair. Mine Is beginning to turn grey. I
hoped perhaps she went on desperately,
you would tell me how you take care of
yours. Tour hair looks so happy."
"My hair does, perhaps." There was a
world of tired emphasis on the word
The gray eyes looked into the brown
ones, and the frown betwen their straight

use them herself? Phe had the best I
chance, the Inside track, and It's her
own fault if she didn't make use of her
Good women always profess to believe
that bad women have some magic for
mula by which they lure men away from
their own firesides. The only conjure
that any woman, good or bad, knows
how to work on a man Is simply to be
pleasant, and sympathetic, and admir
ing, and rub his fur the right way, as
ia the common custom of wives.
There is nothing mysterious or occult
about the charm of the charmer. It is a
simple Illustration of the law of supply
and demand. A man wants some cheer
ful female companionship. If his wife
la a cbronlo grouch, who is always com
plaining and whining at home, he goes
away from home and hunts up some
woman who laughs and is Jolly.
The man craves flattery. Ills wife is
the leader of the anvil chorus and never
misses a chance to give him a knock
that leaves his vanity bruised and bleed
ing. He finds aome woman who jollies
him to the limit, and he makes a fool
of himself over her in consequence
Perhaps the man la heart hungry for
sympathy and understanding. If his
wife can't abide anything that he likes,
and yawns In his face when he tries to
talk to her about his business or profes
sion, why, sooner or later, he meets up
with a woman who doea comprehend his
aspirations, and. who fans the flame of
his ambition, and there s another case
As a matter of fact, every woman who
has got a husband won him with blan
dishments and flatteries, and It is a
tragto and a pitiful thing that they
haven't enough sense to keep him fed
up on the same sweet meats; but that
they ait supinely down and let aome
other woman steal their bait away from
them, and go fishing for their husbands
with the fly to which every man from
Adam down invariably rises.
"It might help me to know whether
you wash your often or seldom, and what
you use In the shampoo," pleaded she of
the brown orbs.
They plunged Into comparisons. She
of the gray eyes waa of positive nature.
She was confident that her thick, dark
curia were due. after her inheritance of
them, to three habits: shampooing their
with herbs, to eschew soap, which she
regarded as an enemy of hair; to keeping
the akin of the scalp loose and cool by
light dally massages; to letting the hair
hang, loose and free, to the aun and air,
as often as possible.
The other, a negative, . listened as
eagerly as a chtld to a fairy story.
"Of course, I have a good store of
vitality. The more vitality the better the
hair as a rule," her instructor said.
"Tes. I noticed the gray hairs first when
I hsd a severe nervous breakdown. And
I've had a slight one lately, brought on
by Christmas shopping." .
Ah. ' It waa a cooing sound such ss
one uses with a child whom she wants
to comfort. The gray eyes that had
been bright and cold as a bar of steel,
while the frown remained between them,
were soft now as a forest lake with the
sunlight of a summer afternoon upon
The women, by that swift freemasonry
of nature that each need the other, be
came friends. It chanced that they were
taking the same train. Their cheerful,
helpful chatter floated back to me
across the Intervening car seats.
They talked of Christmas shopping,
each giving the other hints as to how to
simplify it. They exchsnged ideas about
keeping their children healthy and how
to so educate them as to make them
equal to their strong wrestling partner,
the world. They grased. sympathetically,
the mother-in-law theme. To their en
during credit, be It said, they said noth
ing about their husbands. They were
wise women who knew that all wives are
dissatisfied, more or loss, with their hus
bands. They were loyal women who
thought the faults of their partners
should be covered so long as the part
ners themselves permitted them to be
covered, if their husband's shortcomings
had brought the frown between the gray
eyes and the slight sadness Into the
brown ones, their owners did not trans
late them into speech. Discussing
womankind's problems, they shunned the
principal one of the marrlel woman, how
to get on with your mate.
The woman with the brown eyes got
off at her station among the cedar
dotted, snow-cloaked New Jersey hills,
she took her companion's hand, and giv
ing it warm, though timid pressure.
"You have comforted me on a hard
Journey," she said.
"You have made mine lighter and
brighter." said the gray-eyed traveller,
"for you have taught me patience."
You have lent me strength." Her
smile of parting waa braver than that
of her greeting. The one who had feared
to Intrude cast a smiling backward glance
through the car window.
A slight Incident of railway travaL Tet
there had been that which make the life
tour easier, an Interchange of helpful
Ideas. There had been the benefit of
