Again and again unhaDDv and
lonely girls write to tell me of their
unpopularity with boys because of
their insistence on holding to their
own standards of dignity. Nothing
I can say to these girls is so likely
to convince them of their blunder
as two letters I am today quoting.
Both these letters came in comment
on a reply I made to a girl who was
very unhappy because she could find
no men who would respect a digni
fied girl and who would show any
desire for her society once they were
sure they could not kiss her. ,.
Of course the right sort of a man
does not feet this way, and I am going
to quote two of many letters I have
received in order that the girls may
see tor themselves.
"The inclosed clipping describes
just the sort of girl that the under
signed would teel honored to know.
"It has been my experience to
meet many girls. Very few have
shown the least disposition to respect
their word in 'simple appointments.
and so I have become skeptical about
placing any confidence in assurances
they may give me. And yet a word
suggesting that they were, not self-
respecting would dc reanny resented,
Do girls think of this side of it when
thejr complain that men don't respect
tnemr " -
. "I respect ! principles in anv girl
who is sincere in her endeavors to
live up to them. Ana I think a girl
ought -to regard keeping her word
just as important as demanding re
spect for .her dignity..' I raise my hat
to any girl who is really self-respect
ing.- :f. JOHN A.-D."
Girls, I suggest that you think
about this letter a little bit. Are you
honest and "on the level?" Do you
respect friendship and liking? . Or are
you unreliable coquettes who whimper
when you are taken at your own
valuation and are annoyed with love1
.making you may have invited?
Now tor a second letter:'
"It has been and still is the dream
of my life to meet a girt who is sweet
and dignified and wants respect.
I have no personal experience of
women and their ways, butf my work
Dnngs me into contact wirn an
classes rtf men. and from what I have
heard about girls I was beginning to
despair of ever finding one who was
not willing to oe kissed and made
love to by all and sundry. -
"I feel so lonely at times that I
am quite desperate but I can't take
time from my work to bother about
girls who are not hign principled
and worth while.";
And there, girls, is the verdict of
two of my boys. I here, were dozens
of other letters of the same tone.
If you are unfortunate enough to
know the wrong sort of young men,
hold yourself aloof from them and
wait until you meet the right sort.
You will meet a fine man some day
and then you will suffer bitterly, if
you have not kept your affections
worthy of him.

T1SING CLUB TO ATTEND THIS CONVENTION
The glaring beach is no respecter
of persons and it is the wise woman
who chooses her bathing suit with
even greater care than her ball gown.
Though there is much talk of comfort
first in all' sport clothes, the clever
designer knows that unless comfort
is combined with style it passes un
noticed. ' There is no dearth of imagination
in dresses for the sea, and in the
last few seasons, says a writer in
Good Housekeeping, they, in common
with all sport clothes, combine audac
ity and attractiveness to a great de-
?;ree. The models to be found are
ar prettier, more attractive in line
and better in color and materials than
ever before. Garisftness has fallen
away and in its place there may be
found suits of good, materials in sim
ple lines and at moderate prices.
The Buster -Brown type, with its
slim long waist and comfortably full
skirt, rivals the more usual model with
the fitted waist line. Both are being
hvorn extensively this season, the
choice depending upon what is be
coming not only in color, but in line.
It may be the slim one-piece affair,
or ruffled or corded short skirt, which
considers it no indiscretion to show
the ruffle or band of the bloonjers be
neath its edge. '
The conservative blacks and navy
blues are those generally worn, but
they may be replaced by deep pur
ples or dark greens, not bright, glar
ing colors, but the dark tones of
these Colors, with perhaps a cap of
a vivid shade. A number of suits of
these rich, dark colors were noticed
last season at Bailey's Beach, New
port, and will undoubtedly be found
there and elsewhere this year.
Colors run riot in caps and may
be as gay as they please. Greens,
purples, rose or orange, if and the
if is a big one the wearer's com
plexion can stand it. White bands

are the favorite trimming for dark

Why Human Beings Can Live Long
By WOODS HUTCHINSON, M. D.
If further proof than the experience
of buried miners and professional
fasters were required of the wondeTful
reserve power of the human organ
ism in desperate emergencies, it can
be found in abundance in hospital rec
ords. Patients who, by some blocking of
the gullet, or intestines or extensive'
destruction of the stomach by acci
dent or by cancer are absolutely pre
vented from assimilating food, or who,
from uncontrollable vomiting, reject
everything which they swallow within
a few minutes, show almost equal
poers of endurance of starvation to
the faster and the miners and earth
quake victims, in proportion to their
If the condition which renders the
absorption of food impossible does
not cause severe pain, or self-poisoning
or auto-infection, we have little
fear for the lives or even the health
of our patients thus cut off from
their food supply for a week or ten
days, and usually no serious misgiv
ings up to two or three weeks, if they
are able to absorb water and free
from pain so that they can rest com
fortably. . '
In fact, hundreds of cases are on
record who have survived without
food, or with only the niost trifling
amounts per day, for two three or
even five weeks, and thoh'if the ob
structive . condition in the meantime
could be relieved by operation, or oth
erwise overcome, made a complete
and gratifying recovery. We, used to
rely greatly upon nutrient' fnemata,
injections of beef tea, egg-nog,- etc.,
into the bowel, in these cases.
But we now know that', very; little
food substance of any ' kind is ab
sorbed from the colon, and; that the
main value of these high enemafa
was to supply water to the' system,
which can be freely absorbed here. In
fact, patients do almost as well upon
injections of plain boiled . water or
weak saline solutions as'they did on
these nourishing broths and thick
soups, even if predigested, and are
much more comfortable.
The reason and mechanism of this
remarkable power of going without
food are twofold. First of all, the
grim fact that such an absolute- power
of enduranefxif starvation was an ab
solute essential to survival, not
merely in the stone age and in the
stage of savagery, but all through
barbarism to the lower stages of so
Famines, with the savage, come
every winter or every dry season, ac
cording to his latitude; and the
Ojibwa, or Eskimo, who cannot, on
occasion, eat thirty pounds of meat
at a sitting when he can get it and
go thirty days without it altogether
when he can't llas slim chances of
And we kept that power pretty well
exercised in our own ancestral line up
to a couple of centuries ago; for a
famine every ten or fifteen years was
formerly as regular and matter of
course an affair as a wet summer or
an extra cold winter all over Europe,
as it is in Russia, Turkey and India
to this day.
The mechanism of our capacity to
still stand these tremendous strains
on emergency, is that even to this
day nature equips every one of us
with a packing and lubricating and
blanketing of fat amounting to nearly
25 per cent of our body weight.
If we would literally fry the fat out
of ourselvts, we would shrink at least
a third in bulk; for not only is there
jacketing and packing and filling in of
all sorts of unoecupied spaces and
rounding out of unbeautiful hollows
by this natural oleomargarine, but
every one of our tissues is ' saturated
and soaked with it our livers, our
muscles, the hollows of our1 bones,
and even our lordly and superior ner
vous system. Our brain as it stands
is nearly 40 per cent fat; so that the
term "fat-headed" may be as accur
ate as it is abusive.
Although fat is a very useful tissue
in many of the every day activities of
the body, a very large share of this
huge proportion of it, the , heaviest
tissue but two in our bodies, second
only to the muscles and bones, is
really floating capital, money in the
bank, which can be utilized in case
of a run or drain on our credit.
So convertible, in fact, a security is
it, that no less thart -nine-tenths of it
can be completely burned up in pro
longed starvation, fully half of the
tenth that remains being incorporated
in the nervous system.
This supplies the butter fbr our in
ternal daily bread in case of starva
tion; but where does the bread and
nieat come from? From our muscles
and from our liver and from the
voluminous and juicy coils of our food
.tube; even our bones are sucked dry
By CONSTANCE CLARKE. V
Take four pounds of the shoulder
of veal and put the meat into a stew
pan with knucklebones and sufficient
water to cover; two onions, two
blades of jnace, two bay leaves, a
little whole white pepper, six whole
allspice, one bunch of savory herbs
and one saltspoonful of salt. Let it
gradually come to a boil; then put it
over a slow fire and let it simmer very
gently for three hours, or until the
' ' v v ' " '
meat leaves the bones; skim off the
grease from the liquid and mince the
meat finely; oil a plain mould, press
the meat into it, pressing it down
tightly. When cola turn out on a

to prepare, but will amply repay one

and our skin shrivels under the sap
ping of starvation. '
In fact, nature has the whole body
politic organized for war after th
fashion of the German general staff,
with a precise gradation from greedi
ness at the one end to loyalty and
self-sacrifice at the other. So that
the lowest and weakest tissues are
eaten up first, while the highest and.
in their own estimation at least, most
indispensable, are preyed upon scarce
ly at all. To put in crude percentages,
we can live on our fat in starvation
until 90 to 95 per cent of that is gone.
We can live on our muscles until
60 per cent of their weight, which
means more than a third of our total
body, weight, is gone. We can eat
up and keep body and life together on
30 to 40 per cent of our liver and di
gestive organs. Our skin and vour
lungs will yield nearly 20 per cent
of their weight for the life of the
body. While our indispensable heart
and supreme directing brain and ner
vous system lose only about 10 and 5
per cent of.their weight, respectively.
So that, to put it very roughly, na
ture has so skillfully arranged matters
that a man weighing 150 pounds can
burn up and utilize 50 pounds of his
own weight for starvation rations and
yet keep together his organization and
his. pumping plant, so that when the
famine is over and the siege is raised
he can rebuild his working force
agiin completely. . This gives him, of
course, a pound and a half a day for
some thirty days if he can only get
- Nature conducts all her most vital
operations upon a wide "margin of
safety," as. Meltzer aptly terms it.
But a word of caution should be
added-to-emphasize that this is only
an emergency measure, but not in the
least- either ; adapted to or useful in
ordinary circumstances. The process,
in fact, of burning up one's own tis
sues,' eating one's own flesh, like any
other form of cannibalism, while it is
wonderfully effective in simply main
taining life after some desperate fash
ion, is in all other regards an ex
tremely undesirable and even danger
Complete abstention from food or
even living upon extremely inadequate
and small amount, so as to cause con
sumption of one's own tissues and
loss in weight, is anything but a
healthy or physiological process; and
as we years ago discovered in our
work with dieting diabetic patients, is
accompanied by the formation of def
inite and dangerous poisons in the
. These poisons, known as the ace
tone group, are the principal agents in
causing death in diabetes and other
similar disease conditions and have a
singular effect upon the nervous sys
tem, partly in numbering it in a most
merciful manner so as to blunt the
edge of hunger; for as nearly all its
victims have testified, starvation, after
the first three or four days, is hardly
at all painful. But, second, like near
ly all other mild narcotics, they pro
duce illusions and hallucinations.
One of,the first of these is a curious
sense of mental clearness and lucidity.
So that the individual undergoing
either complete or partial starvation
will frequently comment on the ex
tent to which it has improved his men
tal powers and cleared his brain. This
quickly goes on to positive hallucina
tions of voices and lights and visions,
for the most part of beauty and
charm. This curious two-fold effect
of the acetone bodies in starvation ex
plains at once the remarkable popu
larity which fasting has always en
joyed with ascetics and mystics of
every age for the purpose of purifying
their minds and placing them in a re
ceptive condition for visions and rev
elations. It also explains why so many of the
spare .diet, low protein, vegeterian
cures and schemes for the physical re
generation of humanity score such a
striking apparent success during the
first few days or weeks.
Those who undertake such ventures
are,' as a rile, to begin with," suscep
tible, to. say the least of it; and the
cloud of ' rosy illusions bred in them
by trie autotoxins of starvation fills
fhem with enthusiasm and delight at
the , success of their experiment in
