Truth Highest Ideals of
Lovers From Mother
By ISABELLE HATCH O'NEILL

will be inclined to quarrel with that definition-does it n(
follow that a woman, thoroughly convinced that what she

be false, cannot be called untruthful?
A woman is guided to truth largely by her intuition;
man by his logic. To woman the modern world is a neN
strange thing. She grasps neither the meaning nor the nece

her logic is only a naine-a man's way of looking at thing
In her own mind woman envelops her acts in a bright ilnd ideal atmo
here, and thus often sees a high motive in what a int would call di
It has often been assertcd that on the witness stand a woman wi
lore lightly commit perjury than a man. This, however, does not pro

The reason why women do not always fell the literal truth on the wi
ess stand is because they neither fit into nor understand the conditio:
-hich surround them ; they are out of their sphere; they lose the re
leaning of the wvhole court proceedings.
Is a woman's standard of honesty higher or lower than a man's?
is a question of commercial integrity. of common .husiness honesty, the

Women do not deliberately steal. They do not deliberately misrepr

If w'omen are not innate lovers of truth, why does religion appe

And to whom, from mother Eve to this day, h

possible that two-thirds of the human race, from ti
dawn of civilization, could have instilled into childrc

No matter what may have been said or writt(

~' IN AGONY WITH ITCHING
al "About four years ago I broke out
with sores on my arms like boils. Af
ter two months they were all over my
If body, some coming, and some going
re ttway. In about six months the boils
r quit, but my arms, neck and body
broke out with an itching, burning
rash. It would burn and itch, and
e- come out in pimples like grains of
wheat. I was in a terrible condition;
I could not sleep or rest. Parts of my
flesh were raw, and I could scarcely
bear my clothes on. I could not lie
in bed in any position and rest. In
about a year the sores extended down
m to my feet. Then I suffered agony
with the burning, Itching sores. I
could hardly walk and for a long time
I could not put on socks.
it "All this time I was trying every
1 thing I could hear of, and had the skill
of three doctors. They said it was
ewena. I got no benefit from all
t his. I was nearly worn out, and had
given up in despair of ever being cured
when I was advised by a friend to try
Cuticura Remedies. I purchased Cuti
- cura Soap, Ointment, and Resolvent,
n and used exactly as directed. I used
the Cuticura Remedies constantly for
3 four months, and nothing else, and was
perfectly cured. It is now a year, and
I have not had the least bit since. I
am ready to praire the Cuticura Rem

TAKEN AT A DISADVANTAGE
Awkward Question Put to Witness
Led to Hasty Exit From
A colored brother was charged
w44b violating the prohibition laws,
and one of the issues in the case was
whether or not certain prohibited
beverages were kept in an ice box iII
the defendant's place of business. Jim
Jones, another colored brother, was
introduced as a wittness for the de
fendant, and swore positively that no
prohibited beverages were kept n the
box that day; that he was in the
place all the morning. On cross-ex
animiation, the city attorney asked it
the ice box was open wheu ho entered
the place, or was opened in his pres
ence. Jim promptly replied in the
negative. He was then asked if
he had been inside the box at any
time that particular day, and replied
that he had not. The city attorney
then asked the all-important question
of "how lie knew there were no pro
hibited liquors in the box at that
time." After considerable delibera
tion and a mute appeal to the de
fendant's attorfiey, which was very
marked, Jim replied: "Fo' Gord, boss,
I didn't know yo' was gwine ter ax
me dat." Jim was hastily excused by
consent of all parties.-Exchange.

do a lot of outdoor entertaining this
summer expect to use thousands of
paper napkins, and I have had the
job of typewriting a toast on each
napkin. It is a pretty idea, and I tried
to meet the charming sentiment of
