SILK HAT HARRY'S DIVORCE SUIT
The Man Wio
In Reply to Mr. Garret P.
By MYRTA A.
It was first Introduced by Sir Walter
Ilalelgh, aB we all know. Thc white
man aped the Indian and now the woman
apes the man.
It Is a habit or vice, you might say,
which is neither healthy or becoming to
either man or woman. ,
Men have for so ions a time inflicted
their nauseous habit Into private places
that they have become a nuisance; they
have so Impregnated their systems with
nicotine that the habit has become an
affliction, and the result U that It Is
being handed down to each generation
just as a disease Is handed down.
One falls a victim to environments and
the smoke habit has existed for so long
that the children of thc parents ore at
tuned to a desire that has been forced
upon them and have for so long been
steeped In the fumes of tobacco that tho
desire has overbalanced their good Judg
ment of the women as well as the boys
Men's play houses of tobacco shops are
where they are first Introduced Into tho
realm of dice shaking, taking chances
and smoking big cigars. This Is the first
step of the bad Influence and they are
?oon Innured Into other vices.
They go Into a cigar store; and by shak
ing dice taking chances, and getting
something thnt some one else titis to pay
for sooner or later, they are easily Ini
tiated Into tho clutches of gambling.
Later tho drinking habit follows, and tho
desire for something more exciting Is
born and dovelops Into tho common
A man who Is a man Is rather tabooed
and called a sissy when he Is not addicted
to some vice.
Adam and Eve were put Into the gar
den of Eden without a character and
were sent out of the garden -to moke a
character, and the making necessitated
hard work and heavy labor.
Some men are born good ana somo
acquire goodness through observation,
not necessarily through experience, such
as some must and do have. The wild
outs idea Is a habit, and being a habit
Is certainly ono that Is to be shunned
rather than acquired.
The hoy and man who can say no to
temptation Is certainly greater, stronger
nnd more manly than ho who says yes.
Any weak-minded Idiot can yield to
temptation, but the man who says no
atid means It Is a hero.
Sometimes you hear of men who have
cut out the vices of early youth, and when
you meet with a man who has the deter
mination and strength of character to
put these vices on the shelf, you can de
pend on It that that man can be depended
upon, and he Is a friend worth cultivating.
There Is no sight so ridiculous as to see
a man on a cold day smoking a pipe or
cigar, he looks like an engine under his
Why do men smoke?
Why do women smoke?
Why Is It worse for a woman to smoke
than menu It certainly Is noand should
not be; a bad habit Is just as bod for a
man as it Is for a woman.
Man has made It necessary to provide
smoking rooms, and If It Is good for man
why Is It bad for women? Some silly
girls go so far as to Jeer at a young man
because he does not smoke. And these
same light-headed- misses are the ones
who will do the samo thins If the op
portunity presents Itself. '
Men make It so strong that some poor
misguided girls think that boys need to
smoke, otherwise they are below the
standard; when a girl Is so frivolous you
can easily Judge the caliber of her Ideals.
And such a girl will make a very care
less wife and a mighty poor mother. Who
would "want to marry a girl that would

for some, but trials and nips are neces
sary for others, would that there were
more of the former. There Is nothing
so disgusting as tho breath of a man who
smokes. And men who we will call men
and not gentlemen. Indulge their habit In
every conceivable place.
Why should the pleasure of a cigar be
first to a man regardless of surroundings
or society? What a purely selfish Indi
vidual he Is.
Women who will go to clubs for dinners'
many times have a severe headache and
are made 111 by the nauseous fumes or
cigars smoked by men. These men would
be mortally offended If they were called
impolite, but they are worse than that
they are boors.
Because one man lights a cigar and
sets the pace Is no reason that others
should follow his lead. nut many are
watching the chance to do It, because
that gives them an excuse. The aroma
of a cigar Is delightful to some women.
Do you wonder they want more of It"
Who Is the one to cast the first stone?
A woman has as much right as far as
right (and not propriety) goes as a man
to smoke. You have no more of an
oxcuse to twit her about being Indiscreet
as you have to find fault with tho one
that took tho first step to establish this
vile and useless habit.

Don't blame a woman for adopting a

Love Making Needs Romantic Touch
By MARGAltET HUBBARD AYEIL
What Is the Ideal proposal?
The ideal proposal must nut bo prosaic
In form, as It too often Is.
That la, according to Miss Mabel Ucd
Cat, a very beautiful young Canadian
Hlngcr, who must know about proposals.
If the men have eyes In their heads,
though she assured m that what shj
aid was purely theoretical.
Miss Deddoe Is a romantic person.
"I'eople think I am very matter-of-fact,"
said this exceedingly handsome
oung woman, "but ns a matter ot fact
am not. I Uke to live In a world o(
omancc, and I think it helps one Im
mensely In these prosaic days, for we
are prosy, aren't we?
"Now, when I feel that things are go
ing wrong, and fhat everything Isn't as
It should be, whan I might be depressed
or dlfcouroged, I begin to Imagine that
rny troubles, whatever they may be, are
great advent re and I deltbcrat ly
paint them with a romantic , glamor that
wipes out the sordid or ordinary monot
onous side of life.
"A lover. If he Is going to propoe In
m Ideal way, must do something of tho
same thing. A proposal should not lie
spoken In the ordinary everyday terms
e use, and slang, of course. Is entirely
"It's very difficult for men to presorvo
the romantic spirit in the unromantlc
clothes they wear, and I think that the
lark and Inartistic costume of men has
'ts effect on the romantic spirit and has
put a damper on the Ideal proposal.
"The spirit of good fellowship between
men and women of today makes It dif
ficult for a man to preserve the romantic
glamor in courting a girl, and If he
knows that she can beat him at golf or
tennis he Is less likely to propose In the
humble and ardent spirit of the old
time lover, who had but few opportunities
of seeing the girt he was n low i'h
and never was permitted the freedom ot
Intercourse which exists today between
voung men and girls,
"The point of view, too, has changed.
There Is an old Kngllsh song called "The
Keys of Heaven,' where the lover offers
his lady everything, Including a coach
with six Mack horses, If she will but
walk and talk with him. But the Indy
wll not walk until he gives her the keys
of his heart
'In offering this the young lover goes
down on his knees and she gracefully ac
cepts him. I am afraid the modern young
woman would have been quite willing to
walk and talk with him if he could pro
vide a good touring car, and she would
take it as a matter of course that his
heart went with It.
There Is very little sentiment, or. I'
should say, sentimentality, among modern
young people, and that affects courtthlp
and the proposal. I sing many of the
songs that were popular In 1S30; that was
the great time when sentimentality was
encouraged In young women, and young
men had their goodly share of It. I
