Odd Ten Party in Ealt LcUe.
Out in Salt Lake City. Utah, on
Tuesday occurred a very strange tea
parly. Truth to tell, we might not
have thought it a real tea party, al
though people f title and rank were
involved and the sweetmeats which
usually appear at tea . time were in
evidence. Only the proper setting
was tacking. . ; '
ihis queer tea party took place
within the prison stockade of Fort
Douglas, under the brow of the hill,
where interned German naval offi
cers were weltering in the July sun.
Mrs. Eleanor Blaine . Gcbhard had
just arrived in the city, and was given
the privilege of vjsting her husband
inside the barbed' wire stockade for
a short time.
She was accompanied by Baroness
I. von Elpons, who had been in the
city for some time and had received
permission to see her husband' and
take him a few dainties each after
noon. Both women were gowned in
immaculate white v summer dresses
and carried bundles and packages of
sweetmeats and "goodies."
They reached the fort just as a pro
visional regiment was going through
a practice review with colors stream
ing and bands playing; but their en
gagement for tea seemed much more
interesting, so that they hurried into
the office of the prison commandant
with scarcely a glance at the march
ing troops. There they were detained
for half an hour while the comman
dant inspected their packages.
Mrs. C. Louis Meyer and little
daughter afe Omaha people spending

of the interesting happenings in that
city because of the presence of Ger

Duty is a very magnificent concep
tion, but a rather stern one. from '
which romantic people have a way ,
of shrinking. The instant a certain ;
type of man or woman is1 put un-l
der restraint, restraint becomes a gall-!
ing and unpleasant thing. "Stern I
daughter of the voice of God!" that
is duty. i!
It is just liuniau that's all to cn-j
joy doing the things for which you i
volunteer and to resent being led off;
by the ear and forced to do them.
The cleverest and most successful
mother I ever knew made it a point;
to eliminate "don't" from her vocab
ulary. She managed a high-strung
daughter and an arrogant son per
fectly by dint of leaving them al
ways free to choose.
Did Lucy want to go motoring with
a crowd of gay and undesirable young
folks? Mother never said, "Don't!
I forbid it," but always, "Lucy, are
you happy with those boys and girls?
Do you find them satisfying compan
ions? Are you willing to have them
as your best friends and take the
chance of alienating some of the
other people we know? Let's talk it
over. Of course, you are perfectly
free to go if you like, but maybe
when you think about it you'll prefer
not to go."
"Prefer," you notice. That treat
ment worked very nicely with Lucy,
and it can be guaranteed to prove
effective in at least four cases out
The reason a great many men and
women chafe at the restraint of mar
riage and fail to be quite loyal to
their marriage bond is because they
feel all their freedom to choose is
taken from them. The woman who
turns into a jealous inquisitor or a
suspicious prosecuting attorney in her
attitude toward everything doesn't
know much about the fundamental
facts of human nature. "Having the
name as well as the game," is a non
chalant or daring attitude as you
choose to call it.
But it exists and great is the per
centage of people who flirt because
they are called flirts and wander from
home because they hear a nagging
reiteration of complaints that they
seem best to enjoy themselves away
The power of suggestion is great,
you know. That is another funda
mental of human nature. If a wife
whines out to her husband that she
can see he is bored by her society
and that she supposes if he dared
he'd go gallivanting after that little
Clarkson girl, he is pretty likely to
"Why? Well, it was suggested to
him and lie reacts to suggestion. It
was inferred that he didn't "dare,'
and human nature hates to take a
flare. Ami back of that lies the
great fundamental that the wife in
exerting her claim to possession in
terfered with her husband's claim to

the man I marry is going to prom
ise me three things- or their alter
natives. I want respect and fidelity
and companionship. He must prom
ise to give them to me or, if he feels
he dare not guarantee that he will
continue them always, he, must prom
ise me instead the same freedom he
The point is not whether a woman
takes advantage of such a promise;
it is that she gives a man at once
the right 'to freedom if he wants it,
and insists in turn that he must be
just enough to grant her freedom,
AH the so-called "old-fashioned"
men are going to grit their teeth at
this juncture and remark sotto voce
that they would love to tell "Rita
and her "biographer" what they think
of them. But people who really think
will see the safeguard to love there
is in such an honest "fifty-fifty" divi

A WHITE felt sombrero, a white flannel skirt, a little blouse of

her. We have since been seeing cash other

Several days ago, with a friend, I met
this young woman with several girls and
boys. She asked us to spend the evening
with 'them. They conducted themselves Im
properly and my girl acquaintance did not
act any better than her friends. I said
that as It was late I would go.
Was I Justified In leaving the girl behind
or fio you think I should have offered to
take her home?
- I have again met the girl In question since
and she greeted me In the usual way, at
the same time stating that she was aston
ished at the conduct of the other girls.
Of course, I did not mention anything to
her, efceept saying that she ought to be
more careful about gelecttnf her compan
