Man and his complement--The
I asked Mrs. Bacon who, in her
opinion, was the most complete
complement of any man.
A \1RI IKIR O LOV\'E \\RRI.\GI,.
Jo,;phine Daskam Bacon, author an d philosopher, advises man to wek
weddIed hanppiness in his oppo,,iste and so avoid marital catastrophe.
f `1P i'
Marry an Opposite.
"His opposite.' was the quick
and decisive reply.
"The finest violin, the most ex
quisite tuned, the handsomest
wrought. is useless without a bow
to string out the music imprisoned
in its. heart. One might duplicate
the sensitive strings, the delicate
bridge, the graceful case, but until
there was a satisfactory bow, the
instrument is useless, incomplete for
"So It is with man. The right
woman intensifies, accentuates every
goodthing in him. She brings out
possibilities he never dreamed he
possessed. She is the other half of
his happiness equation."
"Then you do not believe persons
who are alike in tastes and tempera
ment and abilities should marry?"
Mrs. Bacon sent a swift, compre
hending glance from her dark eyes,
with the stars of humor twinkling
in their thoughtful depths.
"At the risk of being submerged
beneath a surf of infuriated howls,"
she nodded. "I go on record as say
ing like should not marry like.
"A man with a had liver, for in
stance, has no business marrying a
woman with chronic Bright's dis

individual aches and pains that
neither will have sympathy or tol

"A tremendously serious man
should not marry a woman without a

home. A frivolous man who mar

"It is a mistake for a lawyer to
marry a lawyer, for an artist to mate
with an artist, a business woman
with a business man. There is too
much ego in the human alchemy to
bear the test. One or the other
makes too frequent and fervid use
of the pronoun 'I.' The other re
sents playing second fiddle in this
domestic symphony. The result is
a discord that seeps out and strikes
the ears of friends, lightly at first,
gradually resounds through the
world at large and winds up with an
ear-splitting crash In some court or

Gypsy N'eds Homebody.
".\A gypsy nee(ds a home woman, to
keep him from wandering too far
"A stay-at-home wants a wife who
likes to go out and see what is hap
pening in the world, to keep him
from growing moss on his back and
rust in his brain.
"Fortunately, for the most part,
opposites do attract one another.
That keeps the world and its wives
balanced. Otherwise we would see
an endless procession of matri
monial barques listing to port or
starboard because all the weight hap
pened to be on that side and the
poor unhappy voyageurs would be
dumped over the side where they
would be compelled to flounder and
strike out blindly for shore-prob
ably in opposite directions."
Josephine Daskam Bacon has re
cently written a neat and chatty lit
tle collection of timely tales she calls
"HBeth Griswold." one of the
book's heroines, is a spoiled and
fashionable young lady who gets so
bored with being useless she takes
up the honorable profession of nurse
maid. In the course of her nursely
duties she meets a mere policeman.
This is what the author has to say
of Peggy and her policeman:
"You see, all her (Heth's) culture
counted at last; and she knew that
in the face of an enormous thing
like this, nothing-nothing in the
world-should separate them. Po
liceman or Ambassador, Griswold or
nursemaid, it was all the same? No
body had ever told her that this
kind of feeling existed, but now that
she knew it, she knew that every
other feeling in the world was un
important beside it. That strong,
wonderful creature. with his burn
ing eyes, was hers, and she was his."
So Beth. in the book, promises to
marry her policeman. Of course, in
the end, he turns out to be a perfect
ly good millionaire, who has joined
the police reserves because he, too.
grew tired of being the fifth wheel
on the cart of progress. But Beth
knew and loved him as a policeman,
which is all that matters for the
purpose of etching Beth on the tab
let of woman-worth and courage.
To return to Josephine Daskam
Bacon's reason "Why Men Marry,"
Beth found her complement, and the
millionaire policeman recognized in
Beth the end of his quest for happi
