"other woman from pursuing her
husband with "wiles and blandish
ments." Who is right philosopher, poet or
the wife in Georgia?
Can love be pinioned in the domes
tic dovecoat by a court injunction?
Can a woman's love be restrained by
an order of the court of law? Can
mortal judge say to any woman,.
"You shall not love this man"? Can
he say to any man, "You shall not
love this woman"?
History answers NO, and romance
repudiates such sordid schemes for
coercing the love god.
This case of Mrs. Arthur St.
George Joyce she's young and
beautiful and Mrs. Hazel C. Sher
man, a woman of beauty and youth,
too, is unique in law court annals.
In the court of love it has no prece
dent. Until Mrs, Joyce .wife of the
well-known publicity man of Atlanta,
formerly of Philadelphia, sought to
tether love to her hearthstone with
a legal order, no other woman, as far
as court records show has attempted
to protect her love-property from
love pirates by court injunction.
And suppose the learned judge in
Atlanta grants the permanent in
jpnction restraining Mrs. Hazel Sher
man from pursuing her husband
"with wiles and blandishments," as
Mrs. Joyce alleges in her petition,
and she alleges that Mrs. Sherman
has followed her husband from Phil
adelphia to Atlanta will Mrs. Joyce
be more secure in her husband's
History again answers NO. Love
was ever volatile. From Antony
down to Rev. Darnell man's love has 1 to cotton.
STEPS IN THE NEWEST

and the law propounded by judges. ''
Love often oh, yery often finds
a permanent abiding place cynics
to the contrary but it cannot be fet
tered there by force. Love comes
without invitation, it may linger a
little while or a long while; the fate
of love's votaries or its victims, as
you will, seems to "lie in the lap of
the gods." When love chooses to
say adieu it leaves without ceremany,
though not always in peace. Only
the philosophers and philosopher-ess
and they are so rare! know how to
let love make an orderly retreat.
They know perhaps, because
they understand love that no po
liceman can club love into obeying
the mandate of a court of law. The
love god takes his orders from a
Mrs. Joyce has tried a new way to
break the fatal triangle the wife,
the man and the "other woman."
Shall time prove that she is wiser
than philosopher or poet?
AN OZARK IDYLL
While out 'possum hunting with a
party of young folks one night last
week, Walter Boomer, desiring to
prove to the boys and girls more to
the girls that he was a great hunter
passed his hand into a hollow log
where dwelt Mr. Possum. Readers,
you can well guess what a hand
shaking took place, but Mr. Possum,
like Mr. Roosevelt, said "Delighted"
with his teeth. St Paul (Ark.)

DANCES THE "SEA
GULL SWOOP" IN THE WALTZ CANTER
By J. Harvey Hume
The waltz canter Is little more than
the "lame duck" figure in the one
