THE RIGHT S
G-ir ls XJO ve tc ?ft
The trouble is a girl thinks of the
saan himself rather than his char
acter, and, sadly, enough, she is al
most invariably attracted by the
qualities that dazzle her rather than
those on which she must depend
through after years.
Women like sparkie, grace and
beauty, and as girls they love to be
worshipped. A very few are capable
of choosing a husband from those
that present yiemselves as her suit
For a girl cannot choose n husband
as man docs a wife. He may flirt aud
spend his time with thc alluripg mai
den, whose pompadour and blue eyes
are her chief charm, but in nine cases
out of ten he will marry a womanly
girl- one who is fitted to bo a good
wife and mother. Whatever lack
men have, their minds work very logi
cally, with reason and foresight, when
it comes to matrimony.
Girls are different, and young and
old they are most likely to be cap
tivated by the adventurer or unworthy
man unless they are olosely guarded
io their homes and acquire a certain
degree of oommon sense as they grow
Wise men in their wills, therefore,
tie up the wealth left to widows, and
daughters so that, in oase of death,
dome ;idle scamp who boasts a tenor
voice or has, through constant prac
tice, learned to make love in a telling
fashion, does not step io and win not
only the woman, bat her money.
.These fortuno banters are tho very
worst and most dangerous type of
men to be avoided.- Tbey are the
professional beauties of their sex and
aje vainer by far than women, never
showing a trace of real feeling except
Vi?ion como girl who knows their game
langha them to soorn, ignoring the
pretty ways and cultivated tones that
are their stock in trade.
Suoh men early learn their attrac
tiveness to women, and as they grow
older they become positively insup
portable in their various mannerisms
and affections, tending, QB they think,
to make them appear fascinating.
And, sad though it is to relate, they *
are regarded as faBoinatiog by foolith
girls sud silly old ladies who Bhould
, know better.
ODO note bf warning that may be
observed in regard to thisolaas of
man, no matter how cleverly bo may
cloak his real character to aromen,
?en will rarely endure him.
It is rather a safe rule to avoid
nea that other men will not asiooiate.
"They may not be rascals io the
griminal as?se of the word, bot they
aro never manly, honorable mno> and
they are sc smitten with a soaso of
their own obenua that a girl who
liberties one of them is doomed to un
happiness unless abe happena to have a
foil purse to squander on their whims.
' Better by far, as men go, i3 the
gambler or even the man who drinks,'
although neither of these ia the man
to marry. But neither in so danger
ous, for every girl is warned against
those two failings, while the effemi
nate dandy of Beauty Man, as he baa
boou called, frequently poses as a orea
tars without vices.
His groat aim is to be attractive to
women, and he therefore eschews all
vulgar sins suoh as card playing and
drinking. Young men are not so apt
to have these, faulta ia these strenuous
- sueeeSS'Seekiog daya. They may
have tendencies toward over-oooiabil
ity, but modern philosophy deals,with
those matters more sanely than in the
, old times.

alk of "Ideals."
Every week's record shows that
men are detected constantly in such
crimen as embezzlement, bigamy and
evii worse sins against the commun
ity and thoBe whom they should pro
tect, who, it comee cut, have never
smoked or played cards or visited a
horse race, |
Yet there are smaller vices by far
than their own, and small vices will
always remain secondary to character,
which is the important thing in the
man ono marries, as it is in every in
dividual-man or woman.
Somo of thc greaUat nainos in his
tory are those of men who were not
exempt from faults-some serious
oues. But haviog character they rose
abovo them-developing their natures
at thc true test of a man or n woman
Choose, then, a mao whose char
acter is worth while, and one who has
pride io that character' nod something
that he holds in trust and that must
be sustained, who reopecto his mother
and his father, bia family ties and- ob
ligations, whose language is olean and
who does not sacor at religion.
Nest to the Beauty Man, who thinks
himself irresistible to women, the
oheap and braggart atheist, continual
ly voioing hie unbelief at afternoon
teas, is a person to be avoided.
He ia unfortunately a common type
and youths who should know better go
about imitating his swaggering ignor
ance if they have not been properly
trained and brought up under the
And thia training and influence ia
of the greatest consequence in the
man you marry. There are black
sheep in every fold, but the man
whose family has respect and standing
in the community has something to
live up to, some matter of pride be
yond himself and will in most eases
prove a good husband.
This rule is a-sound one. Be a
snob in ohoosing a husband if you are
one in nothing else. A man or a woman
will often bo withheld from evil by
the thought of mother or father, of a
.emily name that will be smirohed
through,wrongdoing or even careless
Don't marry a weak man who is
eimply charming In intelleot, refine
ment of manner and speech, poetio in
mind, reverent of woman, talented
but lacking that moral stamina whioh,
if it ia called upon, will fail.
Such a man is sure to ba handsome
in an interesting, fascinating way,
and sometimes he makes an adorable
husband; his very gentleness, which is
patt of his weakaers, making him'
seem more of a saint than a man.
If there is money enough in the mu

A girl cannot marry tho man she
chooses; she munt take one of those

man she should not marry is really
the important issue with her.
She must proceed by the ruie of

The stingy man is always unpopt
