AS YOUNG OR AS OLD AS WE FEEL
The other day a woman of 38 married a man of 30, whereupon the
critics went into session and began to grouch.
Of course it wasn't primarily their "business; but, nevertheless, they
proceeded to point out.tb.at,. a dozen or more years hence the wife will be
going down life's sungef.slop while the husband will be just entering his
prime. They were quite sur"e such a marriage couldn't" end happily.
Theoretically they may be right; but luckily life isn't wholly a matter
The facts in this case were that the woman was possessed of that type
of soul whichf doesn!t grow did. Given a mate who will love her and be
kind, one with whom she can always live in a partnership of interests, and
she will not age as her years multiply, but will keep the spirit of youth in
Likewise," it so'happened that this man was older in insight, in ex
perience, in sympathies than ;his age implied. The difference of a few years

CHANCE VISIT HOME REUNITES
New York, Feb. 4. Miss Heid
Naas and Gustav Bohlin have just
started West, on their way to Oak
land, Gal., to be married. Back of
this simple statement is the story of
a real romance; the fairy-tale type
which always ends happily after
Years ago these two young folks
were boy and girl sweethearts in
Jemtland, a little Swedish town with
in the Arctic circle. When they grew
up they both left their native country
and practically lost track of each
other. A short while ago each re
turned to little Jemtland for a visit.
And they met again! She had
come all the way from her present
prosperous home in Oakland, Cal. He
traveled across from London.
Because the rosy-cheeked Swedish
maid declines to live anywhere ex
cept in the United States, Gustav has
given up his home in London and is
journeying, together with Miss Naas
and seven trunks of home-made
Swedish house linen, to the Pacific
coast to be married there.
"Henpecko ought to make a great
ballplayer." "How so?" "He's had
so much practice stealing home."
