JUST A WORD TO THE BRIDE
When that paragon of men told you he loved you, you and you alone;
that he lived for you, would die for you and wouldn't you please be his, you
believed him, of course.
And it's right that you should, for he meant it at the time.
Men are built that way. When in love they are intensely romantic, in
tensely imaginative. But it's a mistake to bank on their staying on that
high key long.
They say no man ever understood a woman. However that may be,
we purpose to tell you a few things which will make it possible for you, a
woman, to understand your man.
He's just an overgrown baby; that's what he is. Get that truth firmly
fixed in your mind, and occasionally consult your mind as well as your
heart and you'll have a pretty safe chart by which to steer the craft of your
A baby likes toys and novelties and hugs and food and so does a man.
A baby is fickle and flirtatious and so is a man. A baby moves swiftly from
smiles to pouting and so does a man. You have to mother a baby and you'll
find soon enough that it's a lot of mothering the baby's papa will require
if ma, pa and baby are to get along.
Being grown-up, man has intervals of manhood; and then's when you
want to nail him down to a code of working arrangement.
Make him realize, as soon as you can, that you intend 'to be an equal
member of the firm. Do your part without shirking; be a wife, not a para
site; and see that he understands that you expect him to do his.
This doesn't mean that you must nag. Nagging is always a sign of
weakness and often a forerunner of defeat. A man is manageable if you
love him and have tact But it Is the silent management of which he is un
conscious which produces the best results.
Above all, don't rely too implicitly on his courtship or marriage promises
to keep him straight. Though he meant 'em, by nature he's weak, open to
flattery and easily cajoled. You must continue to woo him if you would se
curely hold him and if you love him you will want to do that.
When he falls, forgive him, as you would your stumbling baby; for we
repeat, as the key to thise whole man problem, he is only a baby, grown up.
CHINESE WOMAN SPRINGS AN
A little Chinese woman, Miss Hie
Ding Ling, spoke an important mes
sage to the General Federation of
Women's. Clubs yesterday. It was a
plea for the sisterhood of the world.
And it was big.
, "We Chinese women come to you
so like birds that for 4,000 years have
lived in cages," she said. "And so,
dear ladies, there is danger for us
danger what direction we fly. This
woman of China, this bird that has
been in the cage so long, how shall
she use this new freedom that you
tell her of? We want you to teach us
how we better fly, so that we, that
come oot of great darkness and see
the great world and the bright sun
shine around us for the first time,
know what to do, and not fly into
"We just stretch out our hands to
you you to be the leaders, we to fol
low. We don't ask any more than
that just to follow! And, oh, I
thank you many, many times that
you have let me say these things for
the birds at home in China."
Many of the summer frocks, es
pecially those of taffeta or char
meuse, have the fitted basque,
