A man who Is a veteran and battle
scarred, who has seen every phase of life anil

cently about the relative goodness ot men
"Tlie best man is not," lre-asscrted, "as
good as the worst woman:" He holds that
a woman is naturally the better, and no
matter what she may do or how low she
may be, she is better than a man can be.
This theory seems strange enough, coming
as It does from the lips of a man.
Another man, a young one, who has
known many lieople ot ihe best and of the
worst sets, also talked on this same bubjeel,
but from another point of view.
"A good man," enhl be; "that is, a man
who is thoroughly upright and truly good,
is much better tuau a good woman. His
Ideas ot the right arc higher lhan hers can
ever be: he has ideals that she can never
have, and it ho lives up to them such a man
is better than tbebest woman."
