Women Excel in
bar of Physical Fact
By TIMOTHY WILFRED COAKLEY
IE SiEl who wrote that "all men are liars" was not indict
ing humanity. 11 was speaking not generically, but spe
cifically. He meant not mankind, but us, the men, in con
tradistinction to the women.
He was right. Lying, like the rapid-fire gun, the "Bos.
ton agreement," the tricks of trade, the battleship, 'is a
weapon, andI men are the wielders of weapons. Lying is,
after all, only brutality refined. Falsehood is cruelty tem
pered by cowardice.
In the frank age of comnpetitive force man was the strong
arn robber. lie brought the spoil to his lady love, but liked to glaze over
the bloody detail of acquisition. Many a respectable citiz.en in our era
has qualms when his wife congratulates him on the business victory which
he has achieved through the fraudulent finesse of commeitial competition.
lie tells her he can't explain processes to her, that she has no head for
business. lie means she has no heart for it, and his reserve is eloquent
of the fact that lie has not, at bottom, either. But lie is born into a con
dition and he accepts it. lie wields the weapon and is naturally more
expert in its use tlhan the woman.
Not that women cannot pick up the tool when it serves their pur
pose. Their purpose is different-that's all.
Man's temptation is self-assertion, power. Woman's temptation is
self-sturrender, helpfulness. Both lie from self-interest, but the self-inter
est of mnan is possession, the imposition of his personality upon others;
the self-interest of woman is the identification, the absorption of her being
through sympathy into that of her environment.
It is a question of motives.
The standard of honor is no different in the soul of a woman from
that which rules in a man. Each is tempted according to the tempera
ment. So the question really comes down to this point--what are the
psychical elements of differences as between man and woman
We shall never get beyond the philosophy of Genesis. Out of the
"sleeping" Adam was the woman formed. Forever man carries within
him the soul element of the woman. Forever woman bears within her
the soul element of man. It is in the proportions of the combination that
'the mystic secret lies. That secret is God's. Hit this much we mav divLine,
that woman has the instinctive self, the "sleeping" self, the intuitive self,
developed in a higher degree than man. The man has in his makeup
more of the Ego, the ''1," the active self. But each has both elemnenits.
Twenty years of experience in court trials have convinced me that,
other things being equal, the best witnesses are womfeI
and children. 'Tihey excel in a vivid and accurate
report of the physical fact as it is. That is because
temperamentally th'ey are more interested in and re
spond more readily to their environient of fact and
Women will lie unconsciously more readily than
men. Men will and do lie consciously more readily
than w'omen. Woman, speaking generally, has the
finer sense of honor.

N the old bufllding of the New York
university on Washington square,
the birthplace of the telegraph of
Morse, there was taken in 1834
the first photog-rapb of the human
face. The photograph was that of
Miss Dorothy Catherine Draper. and
rhe man who took it was her brother,
Dr. John William Draper, professor
of chemistry in the university. He
had gone a step beyond Daguerre and
by this photograph he established hirn
self as one of the great inventors of
the nineteenth $entury.
Not long ago occurred the hundredth
anniversary of Doctor Draper's birth
and it was celebrated In the auditori

It was on the roof of the old build

was set up, in 1840, the first photo

cluding Theodore Frelinghuysen, the
candidate for vice-president on the
Henry Clay ticket.
Professor Draper took the pictures.

On March 22, 1840, Doctor Draper
took from the roof of the building the
flrst photograph ever taken of the

utes and the image was allout an inch
in diameter. The photograph was pre
sented to what was then the LYC9Utn

aensation at the time, not only here

given to the photographic proces=3 for
many years after this.

born an Euglishman. lie came to this
country at the age of twenty-two,
graduat.d from the University of
Penns, Ivania in 1836 and was appoint
ed professor of natural philosophy,
chemistry and physiology at Ilamp
den-Sydney college in Virginia. It was
from there that he was called in 1839
to be professor of chemistry at New
York university, and he signalized his
change of residence by announcing
almost immediateiy thereafter his
photographic process. He was con
nected 'with the university until his
dleath ini 1882'...
Doctor Draper has frequently been
described as a pioneer in the science
of prismatic analysis. His discow

range.; He even- anticipated the' incan

baffled the scientists up to that time.

Doctor Draper is still remembered
at New York university as one of the
muost" prodigious workers eyer known.
Besides his extensive research work
he found time to publish more than
a hundred books, monographs and ad
dresses. He wrote a history of the
Civfl war in three volumes and, his
"lflstory of the Intellectual Develop
