Women Seeks to Advance
by ISABELIL HATCH O'NEILL
A DISTINCTION should be made between a flirt and a coquette.
Man receives from woman about what he demands, not only
in her mental attitude toward him, but even in the details of
her attire--the wearing of tight corsets and high-heeled shoes,
at the expense of her health and her physique. If a man seeks sin
cerity and earnestness in a woman, he usually finds those qualities. Many
men grow weary of the deeper side of a woman's character. So, in order
to please and hold tilm, she uses the gifts which nature has given her.
Few men compr* the magnanimity of a woman's sacrifice, the
depth of her affections, and how her effort to please, that is, her coquetry,
is often by the means to an end-to bind more closely to her the man she
loves. Such a woman often leads a man to the gate of his inner being
and helps him to awaken and preserve the greatness and purity that lie
The "flirt," on the contrary, is a destroyer, a heartless, selfish eres
ture, living like a parasite on the society to' which she contributes noth
ing, grasping all the adulation anul enjoyment within her reach, heedless
of the wounds which her acts produe. A flirt must have both physical
and mental attractions, but she need not be handsome or even pretty.
Bright and vivacious she niist be.; She must knowtow to ingratiate her
self into a man's heart, flatter.hia,, cater to all his bobbies and make
him believe that he is the one man in all the world for her. She musn
be a good listener. - Men are ler toys,-to be used according to what they
have to give-some for iie theater, others for good dinners or for what
ever they may have to bestow. The flirt seek -to advance herself socially
or financially by using her dupes to forward -herown selfih ends.
But ther are men flirts, too, mi-abundanos. How mdny women have
had to meet the disagreeable start, the ingultiig, insinuating smile of the
male flirt on the street, the cars and in other ublic places. He is quite
as dispicable a character as the woman flirt, and far more dangerous,
with his subtle, seductive flatteries, his sophistries, his plausible, beguil
ing manner--a creature to be both shunned and scorned. As long as
these monsters survive on the face of the earth, and age sllowed to glide
like poisonous serpents into the affections of -innocent and unsmmuspecting
women, just so long will women be betrayed.
The flirt, then, whether man or woman, is a subjdet of pity and can
tempt, for, although liberally endowed by nature with attributes which
might have been used to blees mankind, they forsake the good and fol-.
low the evil, abandoning themselves t
to the heartless selfishness.
Recently there was quite a diseassis
regarding girls with vanity boxes and the
rllatest thing in "doll rags," and their do
manding of their friends expensive amuse
Let me cite a pirsonal experience which
Boxes from observation is most common. There
and "Doll we two girs. One was net anmoder
ately modern in dress, intelligent and a
Rsds" good listener, the other vapid and rattle
brained, but dressed beautifully. Her only
UAcs s , LaP rss.l. creed is dress, and she is gratified in this
because, being an only child, her parents
give their all to her. The other, being an
orphan and living on a limited income, has to be satisfied with being neat.
These two, strangely enough, were chums.
They met men who, it is said, have judgment and discerning powers.
Did they choose the plain girl ? Never. And why? For the most simple
reason--she didn't have on the latest agony. They never waited to see
whether there was any character. She was beyond the pale.
Tiring of this sort of thing, she decided to do the picture shows anad
theaters alone and stroll down side streets on Sunday afternoons whistling
to herself when no one was looking.
As this was too highly exciting, she will have to roam on where men
have a few ideas above collecting baseball pictures from fancy cigarette
boxes and whose greatest boast is the amount of "straights" they ea con
sme and still reach their own door without the aid of a pseser-by or
