: 1 "Don't try any of those tricks on'
me," said John roughly. "There Is
I only one thing 1 want, one thing I
I must have, and that is an answer to

"But, John, I cannot stand thc(
pain," I answered, and 1 tried to
draw away from him. It was only,
then that he knew that his hand!
I upon my shoulder was brutally cruel,'

that I fairly fell Into the chair from

1 A TOO OPTIMISTIC INVENTORY j
By DOROTHY DLX, the World's Highest Paid Woman Writer !
' It Is. of course, one of the merciful,
dispensations of Proidence that every,
old -hen thinks that she has hatched!
1 out a swan, and that every mother be-j
i lieves her own children to be models 1
I of beauty and paragons of wit and in
Otherwise there would be no chil-
f 1 drcn raised. It is only a mother's j
'I blindness to its defects that gives a
woman the patience and the love to
worry and work with a cross, fretful,
y sickly, teething baby that doesn't look
tt as if it were more than three jumps
ahead of its original monkey ances
tors. Nobody else could possibly think
it worth rearing, but the blessed 1
- ' mother delusion sees the beauty of
Lilian Russell or a Paul Swan in the
watery eyes, the pudgy noso and the'
mouth like a catfish;' the mother's
ears hear the voice of Caruso in every
squall, and detects the intellect of a
"Woodrow "Wilson in the countenance
that has no more expression to it than
a cream cheese.
'Mother Love is Great.
None of us know whether to laugh
I at the stultification of mother love1
that we are so often called upon to wit-1
ness, or to go down on our knees in j
I reverence before a love so great that '
it robs an otherwise intelligent woman
of every particle of ability to see
i clearly, or to form a true judgment
where the beloved one is concerned.'
1 for mother love is that which when i
put into the heart of a woman robs
lier of her reason.
So when omo woman descants to
I us by the hour about the beauty and
the charms of her daughter, and wo
A., find the girl homely and awkward and
unattractive, with no charm of mind
or person; or when mother shows oil'
Utile Tommy's marvelous histrionic
i"V. r ability -and makes him recite for U3,
'ft' and he writhes, and twists, and
j' squirms, and mumbles out some hack
neyed verses with about as much ex
pression and elocutional effect as if
j they wore being ground out of a food
Or, when mother shows us little
, Mary's composition and tells us that
j the is sure that Mary is going to be
rii author because she already dis
plays such a genius for writing; and
we can see in Mary's effort nothing
1 but commonplace childish twaddle, 111-
! expressed and badly spelled, wny
I there arc tears very near our smiles,
j ( and we thank God f3r mothers, which
j , ! gives each of us one person 'who be
lieves in our genius and thinks us n
paragon of beauty, no matter how
, much the world may differ from her.

IN M however, there is no doubt that tne
UrW mother obsession which renders it im-
n J Possible for a mother to ever see hir
llyjM I children as they really are, and form
mflW ! a true estimate of their abilities, is
Mia & on of tho main reasons why there arc
1 Jl 5 so many square pegs In round holes,

Urnf A vcry Prominent business man said
,J fk not IonS ago that one of the principal
jSSfc causes of bankruptcy among mer-
chants was that they made a too op
timistic inventory of their assets. They
overvalued the goods on their shclv.es,
and put a higher price than they
would fetch on their wares.
That's the troublo with mothers.
Their love makes them see the chil
dren as dazzling geniuses, and world
winders instead of the ungiftcd, medi
ocre individuals they are, and so in
stead of fitting them to fill worthily
the humble sphere in life to which
heaven has called them, mother unfits
them to make a living by trying to
force them into some high place for
which nature never designed them,
i Sally, for instance, has carroty hair,
a saleratus biscuit complexion and a
dumpy figure. She dances like a bale
of hay, and has the conversational
nimbleness of a performing elephant,
but she is strong, healthy, energetic
and' capable, and has plenty of good
hard horse sense.
If mother could see Sally as she is,
she would know that Sally's chances
of happiness in life lay in her becom
ing a business woman, or marrying
some sensible, practical man who puts
more stress 011 a wife's cooking than
on her looks. But mother sees Sally
as a radiant creature born to shine in
; society, and so she piles fine clothes
. on her and hawks her around ihe mar
! riagc market and breaks her heart
with chagrin, wondering why other
girls have beaus and Sally has none.
Horn's a good, honest, industrious
lad, who would make a steady.' plug
ging clerk, who would work hard and
eventually save up enough money to
start a little corner grocery of his
own. But mother hears in his halting .
speech the eloquence of an orator, and
she forces him into the'law, where he
I starves. "
A famous nlicnist told me once that
I It was a mother's Inability to. see in
I '' child any defect that was respon
sible for an enormous amount of
feeblemindedness. He said that It
competent physicians could treat the
children who are under par mentally,
while tUcy are still very young, thou
sands upon thousands of them could
be cured, or at least helped.
But the mother love kept the moth
ers even from admitting 10 themselves
that there was anything the matter
with their children. They would say
that their babies were backward" In
learning to walk or talk; or that they
were "delicate." or so "sensitive." ana
so cover up the mental defect until it
was too late to save the child from the
moat cruel fate on earth.
It is the same mother blindness
which refuses to see in a child any
blemish which keeps mothers from
helping their children to correct their
faults Mothers know that any other
children who are permitted to grow
up wild and uncontrolled will inevit
ably grow into the kind of men and
women who make undesirable citi
zens and defy law and order. She

Is Youth Time i
The Best Time? 1
v ' A
By MME. QUI VIVE.
Spring! Dewey morn and balmy
noon! The dear earth soil sending up
its warm vapors, boiling out the win
ter frosts. Thoughts of flower seeds
and fresh wall papers, sneaking
dreams about strawberry jam, mem
ories of a white dotted swiss frock,
outside of a little girl, and between
the two of them, a gorgeous, splendid
pink cambric v.nderfrock! Memory
scooted back through thirty years, for
the woman o forty has Just discover
ed that spring has sprung. Somehow
one nluiays thinks of old orchards with
apple trees in bloom when the weather
first warms up.
The woman of forty took in the to in
ter worn dinginess of the hack yard,
beginning at the back fence with its
loose pickets and coming directly to
her doorstep. And right there a
'thought struck her. It came simulta
neously with a sight of old Nancy cas
ually and drowsily watching her three
kittens. The kittens danced, pranced,
rolled and tumbled. Old Nancy looked
on-with austere complacency.
"I can read that old cat's mind like
a book," said the woman of forty to
herself. "She's glad she isn't young.
She's happy because Ihe zest of youth
isn't biting her heels and sending her
jigging along and jumping over the
! fences. In a way, she's like mo. If 1
'can take off my back hair and my
'shoes, get into a kimony and stretch
lout in the old stretch out chair that's
1 all I want."
! Honest Injun, you women of forty,
would you go back to the youthtime
that you so love to talk about as be
ing delightfully inspiring? Aren't
you happier now? Some of your
j'true. hut new dreams have come nicer,
sweeter more comfortable ones.
Think of those wild love affairs, new
ones every few months. Remember
the soul torn agonies of them and be
glad. It's a heap sight nicer to start
i your old man downtown, patting him
on the back, telling him not to forget
j to bring home the old suitcase and to
jstop for his mended shoes on tho way
home, than to sit an open window at
1 in the morning and groan and moon,
about some distant young lover who,
no doubt, at that particular moment Is
taking some other girl home from a
party, its, only a lancy mat youtn is
the best time of all. Youth hates'
youth, It is ashamed of being young
and wants to be grown up. Its trag-
cdies are terrific. Every sorrow is
exaggerated . beyond endurance. Or)
course, joya are more joyful, but they
are also exhausting,
j All" ages are good. Each period or
! human life has its own pleasures.
There are many compensations for
middle age. It's true the gray hairs
crowd out the brown or gold, but what
of it? As long as marcel wavers are
on tho job and can perform. IJieir mag
jic work the problem is not exactly
'hopeless. The color of the hair docs
jn't matter much If the coiffure is neatl
and beautifully done. As for crow's!
Ifect and all their miserable trail, we I
knpw well enough how to combat them'
and if the fight starts early enough
,they won't be bad enough to bother.!
(The wise woman begins early to ward
j of C (he facial etchings of Papa Time
,and she lias found that Uie little skin
food jar is a weapon of no small value,
i An oven division of work and play
keeps middle age away. Work to stim
ulate the mind exercise to keepjthc
body muscles firm and healthy, play
to offset the worries that are bound to
bob up now and then. That's thei
formula. ' r
Let us .rejoice that we live in an age
of good sense. Our grandmothers felt
old and shelved at thirty, and to
beautify was more or less of. a sneak
ing sin. We know now that to pre
serve one's good look is not evidence of
frivolity, but practical foresight. It's
not how you look now that leads pou
on to facial treatments and the vigor
ous hair brushings, but the vision of
what you'll be ten years hence.
We mus tkeep fit. Which means
that we must keep fighting the calen
dar as it jogs along on its unswerving
journey. The "don't care" woman is
the only one who Is on the Yay to de
feat. The weekly manicure and facial
treatment and the fornightly shampoo)
are no longer looked upon as luxuries.
They are necessities Tor the mainten-i
ance of self-respect, the same as the
daily bath, the shoe shine .and the
fresh linens. They put smiles on the
face of tfiat woman in the looking
glass, and these smiles In turn put
courage in her heart and springs in
How we feel depends to a certain
extent, upon how we look. And the!
job of the physician of pulchritude is1
no mean one. If she can delete the '
years for her patrons she Is following
a worthy occupation. - i
On that question we must all agree. j
