A Woman Kepi a Secret
The one secret that women know how
to Keep is, according to unkind critics,
that of their age. They will tell every
thing else that is entrusted to their
keeping, but never, in a moment of
expansive indiscretion, will they be in

older than her husband to justify this

she was nothing of the sort. She did
not look it. She merely had a horror
of being reminded of the passage of
