nearly so flat in the spring.
But seriously sneak-ina-. how solen-

foreign cities, for a sociable cup of
tea at regular intervals.
In the busy whirl of social, intel
lectual and commercial life which
threatens at timet almost to engulf

relegated as a thing of the past and

Love Can Survive Many Things,
S J- But Unkind Words Slay It
By DOROTHY DIX.
It it a curiout thing that speech,
which it the chief instrument in win
ning love, it also the weapon that
oftenest slays it. This it always a
bewildering grief and surprise to us,
because it it at if the tword that had
fought for cupid wat suddenly and
traitorously turned against him. i
It is not what' people do that we
find unforgivable. , It .is , the things
that they say to us that rankle like
poisoned arrows in our breastt, and
more affection has been bljghted by
gratuitoui criticism and more love,

Yet, in spite of this common knowl
edge, there .are men and women fool
ish enough to tell each other of their
faults, and still expect to be loed
and cherished. Vain hopel, Criticism
we may beable to stand from
strangers, for whoV opinion we do
not care, but every word of dispraise
from those we love, and in whose
eyes we would thine, it a drop of
acid that burns to the bone,
Faithful,' says the Good Book
are .the wounds of a friend." ,The
are also fatal. There is no surer and
quicker way for a couple, whetfier
they are engaged pr married, to shoo
love out of the window than for them
to tell each other of little idiosyn
crasies and peculiarities that might be
altered for the better.' '
Most people regard quarrels lightly,
as a matter of no importance. Theyj
even stultify themselves by saying
that "the.falling out of faithful friends
the renewing is of love." but nothing
is farther from the truth.
The first time that we discover that
the lips that have dropped honey can
likewise drop gall, something goes :
out of our hearta that never coines
back again. . ,
Love that has been, tainted with!
doubt, love that has been bruised with
hard words, love that has had to for
give, or be forgiven, is never qilite
the same again. The wound will heal,
but the scar remains, and the patched i
up faith and affection can never be i
as strong as that which has never been
strained or broken. 1
If the quarrels between friends or:
lovera are dangerous, those between;
nusoands and wives are fatal. The;
one is a sparring match with gloves, ;
the ftther ia a fight to a finish with I
bare knuckles. ' . . j
In the domestic spat quarter is
neither asked nor given. The black
flag is nailed to the mast, and noth
ing and nobody is spared. It is the
desecration of all that is holy and
sacred in love. . It is the shattering
of ideals. It is the tearing down of
one't gods, and no matter how much
one may try to repair the damage it
can never be done.
The altar on .which the fire of con
jugal love burned has been broken,
and forever after it will be rickety and
ready to topple over at the tlightest
jostle. Besides, nobody ever worships
again the thing that they have trodden
in the dust under their feet
To the man and woman who wish
to love each other whose very hap
piness is dependent on their loving
each other, aince they are tied to

there can be no folly equal to the
madness of .indulging in foolish fam

Yet, in the majority of households,
they are as much a matter of course

thus wantonly wound love excuse
their crime by laying that a husband
and wife never remember such of

up, and the incident is closed.
Those who offer 'this apology for
their weakness are neither candid nor
honest. They know that what they
say it not possible. They know that
nobody ever either forgivet or for

truth, and in the heat of passion hus
bands and wives flash out the bitter
accusations, and scathing criticism,
the rankling disappointment and dis-
illusion that policy and prudence bid
them hide in saner moments.

Do We Eat '
Too Much Salt?
By LUCILLE CAINE.
Not a few people are foregoing the
habit of using salt at the table. They
believe too much salt is eaten.
Common salt, the chemical name of
which ia chloride of sodium, has been
used so long by civilized man that
most individuals are ted to believe its
use indispensable to the human econ
omy. This is an erroneous belief, as every
individual can decide for himself.
It is a wrong inference which leads
people to believe that because the deer
likes the salt "lick" or the red man
likes firewater, either of the sub
stances is natural or necessary to the
It is a well known fact that there
are numbers of people who never use
salt. The North American Indian
whom the hand of civilization has not
made unnatural, doesnot eat salt, and
many of the peoples of the more
northern parts of Europe and Amer
ica, as welt as central Africa, have no
use for salt.
An individual need go no further
than his own experience to learn that
salt is wholly unnecessary for- the
An appetite for it may be developed
to such an extent that the victim may
well be called a "salt-eater."
The phsysiological effect of saU is
that of an irritant upon alt the mu
cous membrane of the body, produc
ing a watery discharge. This is the
purpose for which salt is prescribed
by physicians as a medicine to irri
tate or clcanfe by flic effect of this
irritataion, which is only intended to
be temporary in character.
It is an interesting fact that salt
and cane sugar have practically the
same effect as an irritant on the hu
Anyone can easily prove the truth
of this assertion by snuffing a solu
tion of salt or sugar and water up
the nostrils; the profuse discharge
which follows is proof of the irritant
effect of either upon the mucous mem
brane of the nose.
What -applies to the nose applies
equally well to tile stomach or any
other organ of the body. So that the
effect of salt when used in excessive
quantities is to produce catarrh of
the mucous membrane of the body
and this in time becomes chronic.
There arc other njinor ailments for
which the excessive use of salt is re
sponsible notably, eczema and other

selves in rashes and boils.
