TT Having predicting dire happenings
K. fcf, Wells, who la always prophesy
hjf about something: tr other; and who
curiously enough sometimes has the
j KOdd tortuno to boo his prognostications
come true, n aft article in tho LauW
Ufrtna Journal for June, which should bo
f Interest to ej-ory woman In America,
Indulges In an excess of pessimism. Hist
to what ha has to say:
."WlrtSomo, weak womanhood will bo
old bluntly by men and women alike
tlittt It is a bore. The frou frou of skirts,
tho dellcato mysteries of tho toilet will
cease to thrill any but the very young
"Beauty enthroned for love must give
way to tho tall weather-hardened woman
W'th a spear, loving her mate as her
male loves her and as sexless as a man
In all hr busy hours. ,
"There havo always been wonien who
Ranted tb sharo men's work and women
whd wanted to 'Inspire It. Tho ordinary
wopiari fluctuates between tho two turns
Bow to tho Western Ideal of citizenship
and ndw to tho Eastern of submission.
".Ondo to bo married was a. woman's
Wholo career. AH her romances ended
In marriage; all a decent man's ended
"A marriago that does not ripen Into
u. close personal friendship between the
iwd equals will be regarded with Increas
ing deflnlteness as an unsatisfactory mar
rlago.,( It remains to bo proved that "tho frou
frou of skirts and tho delicate mysteries
of tho toilet wilt cease to thrill any but
tho very young men,"
Personally, I don't believe It. I1 think
K will take oven more than a world war
to pull down from the high nlcho In
which man has enshrined her tho weak,
Wl' ' rr.r woman, or, as she Is more gen
erally known, tho clinging vino.
Even wore Mr. Wells' article unsigned
the masculinity of Its' author would be
discernible. For Instance, no woman In
this day and ago would ovor havo writ4
ten "the delicate mysteries of the toilet
Will cease to thrill any but tho very"
It Is to laugh, In nn era When women
without qualm or blush stop In front of
mirrors In shop windows and apply salvo
lo their tips or rougo to their cheeks;
when powder puffs and eyobrow ponclls
may bo found In virtually every woman's
hand satchel; In short, when womort carry
all their puichrttudlnous ammunition
with them, and do not hosttato to (lash
It In the open, why speak of delicate
mysteries of tho toilet?
Aiso, every woman knows that It Is
not the young man who Is susceptible
Ho Is not the ono most easily footed. It
Is tho middle aged and the old, those
Whoso Illusions concerning tho sex have
grown with the years, who aro the "easy
marks" for the woman with nothing else
to depend on for her charm but tho frou
frou of her skirts and the so-called mys
teries of her tollot.
And as for tho substitute Mr. Wells
offers us, "tho talt weather-hardened
woman with a spear," I must confess
I wouldn't give a fig for her appeal. The
tentacles of tho clinging vine aro ham
pering enough, I should say, but why a
woman with a spear? Of course, tho
eminent English author writes symbol
ically, but his choice of symbols Is cer
I agree with him that woman should
bo "sexless" In business. All honorablo
and proud women arc, scorning to obtain
favors by their sex to which their merits
do not antttlo them. But Is It necessnry
that we become human porcupines;
that wo substitute prickly bristles for
frou-froulrtg skirts In order to take our
rightful, nlbolt lorig-delaycd, places side
by side In the business world with men?
I think not.
One sentence, however, that I havo
quoted Is worthy of the most respectful
"A marrlago that docs not ripen Into

The skirt of your frck will, of course,
present your greatest problem. Skirts are
alarmingly beruffled, be-tucked and be
tunlced this season. Their "bouffancy" also

woman who Is Inclined to be stout Her
task Is to achieve a skirt which will Bee'm

and not fatter than Bhe actually Is.
I would suggest a pointed tunic Drop
your underskirt on a lining, unless you
have enough of the steel silk to afford an
entire underskirt of It Let tho points of
your tunic fall to the top of the hem In the
front and back and do not let the slope
up th,e side be higher than 12 inches. -In
this way you will avoid a broad line over
A straight skirt with panels back and
front and the sides dropped from a yoke
Will also suit your figure. The yoke will
save It from utter severity.
You can havo no sleeves, mora attractive
than georgette ones. Have, them set In
en an Inner lining, and not attached to the
rmholcs of your overblouse, which will
be of the silk. I believe a georgette
chemisette or vest with touches of hand em
broidery In old blue floes' silk would be
entrancing. Tiny cut-steel buckles or beads

GALLOPING CANCER MAY AFFECT
PERSONS AT VARIOUS AGES
By WILLIAM A. BRADY, M. D.'
Doctor Urady will nniwrr nil elened letters
pertnlnlnc to Health. If your q-ietlon Is of
-eneral Interest, It will he muttered throuxh
(hr columns: If not. It will It answered
r'erHonnll If stamped. aridrrtKcd em elope Is

Individual cases or make diacnoses. Ad
dresi Dr. IWlllam llrady, cure of the
YEARS ago we used to hear much of
"galloping consumption." Tho term sig
nified a very rapid course of tho diBeaso,
what doctors now call acute phthisis, or a
sort pf tubercular pneumonia an acute in
flammation of a whole lobe or lung due to
the tubercle bacillus.
There Is a form of cancer which merits
a similar title. It is called sarcoma This
kind of cancer possesses several distinguish
ing characteristics unlike ordinary cancer.
Sarcoma occurs In persons of any age,
from Infancy to advanced years. Ordinary
cancer is unusual In young persons.
Sarcoma develops acutely, whereas ord
inary cancer Is Insidious In onset. A child
or adult suffers some slight Injury, and
weeks or months later trouble begins at the
seat of Injury, swelling, pain, tenderness,
the symptoms suggesting "rheumatism" or
Inflammation or an abscess.
Galloping cancer may affect any organ
or t Hiue It frequently develops In the
long bones or arm or leg, In the jaw, in
li.o soft tissues of the abdominal wall, in
the nasal cailty.
Ordinary cancer spreads through Its
"roots" ; that, IS. It follows the lymphatic
or drainage channels of the affected area
and takes root In the lymph glands near by,
as In the arm pit In cancer of the breast,
or In the kernels under the Jaw In cancer
of the lip, face or tongue. Sarcoma Bpreads
through the blood stream. Minute cancer
cells break off from the parent canceriand
are hurlod afar through the circulation
(metastases), lodging, perhaps. In the lungs,
the brain or rlsewhero in some distant
organ. Hence, the surgical treatment of
ordinary cancer offers fair prospects If all
the neighboring lymph glands are excised
at the same time, but the surgical removal
of 'sarcoma, even at the earliest possible
time, may be futile It perchance some meta
stasis has already occurred.
There Is this favorable point, however:
While ordinary cancer has no definite
limiting wall, but shades oft imperceptibly
Into sound tissue, sarcoma Is generally
sharply defined from surrounding tissues.
So that when a sarcoma Is removed, pro
vided metastasis has riot occurred, the

patient will surely recover a large number
of the patients do recover.
But the Important idea Is to remember
that there is such n thing as galloping can
cer, that It may affect a person of any
age, that It resembles an acuto inflamma
tion or Dwelling, and that It is fatal In a
few weeks or months unless radically
treated at the very first.
These aro delicious for a summer candy
making party: Sift together 4 ounces of
powdered sugar and 8 ounces of pastry
flour. Then mix in, while beating steadily.
n pinch of salt, a quarter pound of melted
butter and tho stlllly whipped whites of
two eggs. A teanpoonful of xh extract,
scant measurement follows. Now add
enough sweet cream to form a batter that
will fall In ribbons from the mixing spoon.
Cook In buttered wafer Irons and dry care
fully In a sieve or cake rack.
Consider the Elbow
The girl who wears Bleeveless dance
frocks, or transparencies of georgette that
sene for sleeves, should do well to remem
ber that the elbow, when not properly cared
for. Is most unattractive. It would be a
good thing to make a habit of scrubbing the
elbows thoroughly with a soft nail brush
and warm water every night before retiring,
nnd then rubbing a good cold cream well
Into the elbow. This softens the skin and
makes It more pleasing to the eye,
