sirhere are no more charming and lov-

women when one cornea to know them.
There i only one other country which
can produce more disagreeable women,
when met oaaually. In travel and at ream-to.
than England haa produced.
If the Bngllsh woman wants now to
find heraelf let her first see herself as
others aee her. Iet her know that the
cold, distant, haughty exterior which
ahe carrlea Into the world and which
she utterly discards like a mask las it

that It awskena In the hearts of ami
able and kind people Impulses of resent
ment and dislike which are destructive
to both the sender and the receiver.
It does not create a Christian feeling
or promulgate that sense of brotherhood
and sisterhood which must exist before
the New Golden Age can be established
A two weeks' stay In an English re
sort a few year ago aroused In our
hearts the hearts of two very good-natured
and amiable Americans a senna
of exasperation toward two English peo-
who sat at the table next our won,
who were often near us In the
room and elsewhere.
slight overtures toward courteous
tment were met with a cold stare,
nd titter Indifference marked their de
meanor during the entire fortnight. Sim
ilar experiences had been passed through
on ships and at other resorts In Eni(lan
and In English colonies.
On leaving one place we were, curi
ously enough, placed In the same com
partment with the haughty couple
when, lo and behold! after a few hours
the mask was thrown aside and the de
lightful, cultured and genial English na
ture shone forth. We were later Invited

Then let all right thinking English
women start a erusad against the smok

that the American women adopted thla
ungraceful and unsanitary habit.

Then. perhaps, the American women,
who pattern all their vices after foreign
fashions, will throw away their cigar

ress toward a cleaner and saner way
of life. .
We asked a distinguished and bril

the medical department In Ceylon. "Why
U it that English people In general
nd English women in particular, are
the most dtssgreeable human beings one

"I don't know why it is." he replied,
"but I do know It Is a fact. I see It

YOUTH have, or bave had all! And bo It is In the things
of the heart and mind. What do you think and have thought,
bo have I and your neighbor over there! The common ex
perience of Youth, and the same dreams and pondering.
We stand in a level, lovely sea, all with our feet upon the ooie
at the bottom, our breasts laved by the shining surface, our heads
In the sweet air above, and our eyes turned to the sky your neigh
bor as well as you.
Why, then, are we surprised to learn, when we come out of
stress and changes on the surface of the Sea of Life we stand in,
that our friend beside us, and all the hosts that stand with us, have
felt and known the same wash and heave of the waves about their
hearts that we have?
Telling of a marvelous blue and the light that fled over the
sky for you, you whisper it and look for striate on the face of the
listener. But he nods and 6miles as over a familiar treasure and
says, "I was It, too!"
The undercurrent that frightens you, your neighbor fights
against also. The foam that flies, he, too, tastes saltily upon bis
Hps as well as you. And all the cloud-shadows and rainbow hues,
rumors of light and dark, the lovelinesses, the mysteries, tbat touch
the face of the great Sea that swims around us these have touched
the hearts and spread before tae eyes of us all the Truth of Lif.
But we hug our dreams, our conjectures, our desires, our agon
ies, our secret remembrances! Sometimes for shame poor we
sometimes for jealousy. Because we fancy the friend beside us
never thought so!
Youth goes home from the dance in the thin light of the
morning. The big, low moon paints silver everywhere and peoples
even the city shadows with faery things. With the pins half out or
her hair and the silver roses still drooping in its waves tired silver
roses she leans In her window and dreams.
Her good little heart half afraid repeats every word, every
sigh, every smile, the sound of the music, the arch of his brows, and
the rhythm of his feet beside herg on the glass-smooth floor. The
froth of her dress lying across the severe black of big knee she
remembers him lifting it with a cautious band and saying, "I always
knew you were faery-relatlon." What happened that her heart
does not sing over and over again!
The rose he asked for and thrust roughly Into bis pocket
where would he keep it? Her thoughts venture, like blind things,
groping, wandering, grasping at memories, exulting at symbols, ad
vancing into the future shy things that tiptoe into unknown coun
try and fly back again to the real things of that night back and
forth back and forth like busy shuttles weaving vague cloth of
gold and blue. Gold for remote reachings, blue for the beautiful
adventures Just gone. And out of her dreams looks the straight
sml)lng man she's growing to know better!
He, too! La yes. He doesn't feel the sharp bite of the air
bis heart's so warm while he Binokes and dreams in slippers and
gown at the open window in his "diggings." What did she wearT
Silver and black and had eyes like stars he thinks. ' Did she like
him when she smiled like that or. was that Just the way she al
ways did it? And her eyes clung to her rose as though she'd kiss
It it she dared before it went Into his keeping. -
He's glad he's tall she Is so little! Over and over his brain
speaks the ride to the dance how she listened to his ambitions with
eyes that glistened and never left his face! Was she that Inter
ested? Surely she couldn't listen to another man with that look.
She had never given even him so much before.
And her hair! What hair! And shutting his eyes, Tits heart
repeats the touch of it against his cheek when ber bead drooped
coming home. His thoughts, too, venture into the same dim land
the Land of What-May-Be where hers are reaching. And before
"diving in," he stuffs her white roue into his hill-folder, man-fashion,
and firmly believes that no other chap ever carried a rose there
Didn't you know, dear Youth, that we all do that? Or did
one time? All Maids and Men dream Dreams, and pretty much the
same shy things. By NELL BWNKLET.
