"A.MAN'S KINDER TO HIS HORSE THAN HI
WIFE," SAYS LILIAN BELL TO ENGAGED GIRLS
Because men (who never knew
how to make love anyhow!) have
-stopued making any, is what is at the
bottom of so many- .unhappy mar
riages. Lack of love making is the whole
secret of the divorce evil.
Marriage is a game which should
be played with the whole heart and
mind and soul by both parties
cies! He will inerrupt the most in
teresting conversation, when he is
driving, to say:
"There Pet, that pile of stones
won't hurt you ! Go on, now, like the
pretty girl you are' Here's a nice bit
of road. Hold your head up and show
what you can do' That's right!
That's my beauty! See how she
reaches out? Did you ever see such
a nign stepper.' yuiet now, Pet.
If either partner gets careless or Take this hill easily. We know you
bored or indifferent, how long will in
terest in the game continue?
len are never satisfied to do any
thing else in the slovenly way in
which they make love." I know a
man j who is just an ordinary man in
everything else but to see him drive
a spirited horse is to know that he
has the making of a good lover in
him. He is full of enthusiasm in
studying his horse's disposition. He
humors her. He babies her. His pa
tience with her nervousness and fears
and suspicious is infinite. He trusts,
too, to the brute's instincts. He nev-4
er forces her to thwart them.
Yet this man never trusts his wife's
intuitions, nor humors her sick fan-

can go, out you musn t tire yourself
out, just because you have a willing
spirit. See her look around to see if
I am pleased with her!"
"Dear me, that's nothing!" I said
once. "Any woman would do . as
much, if you treated her that way!"
This man does not know how to
make love. His wife is not a happy
woman. He is always saying that hjs
horse won't back or that she hates
this or is afraid of that. The horse
f never has to do anything she doesn't
But his wife does! SHE gets no
such tender consideration and intel
No wonder his horse loves him!
I wonder if a man ever fell in love
with anything except a pretty; face or
a magnetism he foolishly imagined
would be lasting?
Most men make love because the
girl happens to be handy.
Girls hate this "handy" lovemak
ing, but as it is the best they can get
Ithey accept it
Metfcomplam at the way girls treat
each other at the envy, jealousy,
etc., they evidence in their dealings
with other girls.
I claim that it is only to protect
a custom-made brand "of poor love
making to a convenient girl, which
brings on all that men complain of in
the way girls treat other girls.
So who is to blame?
