Dorothy Dix Says He is the
Women Are Without
By DOROTHY DIX.
Some years ago there was a spirited
dlecusslon in tbo papers ns to what type
of matt was entitled to receive the medal
for the meanest man. If I had the award
ing of tlio prize I think I should glvo it
to the man whose

man who will de
liberately win a
girl's heart, in
tending to throw
It away when ho Is
tired of playing
with it, and who
will let a woman
waste the best
ytars of her lite
on him and then
desert her for n
younger and fairer
face when she gets

Theso tragedies aro- all too common and
a .young woman has Just been telling'
.mo a piteous little story In which ono
of these champion mon Is the hero or
the Villain, to speak by the 'd. When
thls'oung . woman was .a 'blqomlng girl'
, of 2a she became acquainted with a man
who paid her assiduous attentions, and
made ardent love to her. though he al
ways, stopped, as sho now recalls, Just
short of popping the question.
Tho girl; however, was not' ready to
.marry, as she was the support of parents
:l,to whom sho was devote.d. So sho and th
nian fell into a pleasant arrangement
that sho considered an engagement. He
monopolized her time, and thoughts, and
affections. Ho camped on her parlor
chairs, nnd ate her good dinners, and
r was as iniiqh at homo In nor house as
, her own family almost, nnd It never oc
;'; curred to her that Jio was not as anxious
Jto marry her as she was to marry him,
Finally, after twelve years of this senti
mental state, fate was kind to the womnn. i
A small Inheritance came to her parents!
po that they were no longer dependent
, mi her, and she felt that she could leavs j
-thyrn, and go with a clear conscience to
lllto own'-home". '
Trembling with eagerness and the Joy
ful news she had to Impart she rushed
to the nn and told him that their long
watting was over, and that they could be
married at last. And the man replied
that he wasn't a marrying man, and had
never had the slightest Intentions of slip
ping his head In the matrimonial noose.
The woman Is, heartbroken. Tho man
lias been the center of her life so long
thut she cannot tear him out of it. and
she asks pitifully what she shall do.

One Whose Attentions to
Of course there Is Just one thing that
a woman with any self-respect can do
under such circumstances, and that Is to
take n broom and sweep such trash, out of
her house. There are many contemptible
men In the world, hut the man who Is u
welchcr In love Is the most loathsome of
He Is worse than a thief. He Is worse
than a murderer. For If a woman Is
robbed of her purse she can earn more
money; but If she Is robbed of her youth
and beauty, that has been taken which
can never be replaced. Also It Is les
cruel to kill tho body than to kill one's
happiness and one's faith and trust.
Yet there aro many men who arc selfish
enough to amuse themselves by making
lovo to women without counting tho cost
to their victims. They select the prettlot
and most attractive girl they can find,
and proceed to blight her life with the at
tentions that are without intention. They
call upon her continually, they are seen
about with her everywhere, they fill up
her dance program and monopolize h'ir
They have no Intention whatever f
marrying; but they kceji away the men
who would marry, and so doom the girl
to' 'old 'maidenhood. It Is a dog In the
munger trick, and It Is only after the.o
deadbeats in affection have flitted away
to some now flame that the girl wakes
up and realizes how dishonorably she has
Of course, in these days of the high
cost of living there are many men who
cannot afford to marry, and who not
only enjoy feminine society, but are at
tracted to some particular girl whom
they would gladly lend to the altar if
they could. It Is a test of the true
nobility and chivalry of such a man to
consider the girl's happiness before his
own pleasure, and when he cannot ask
her to marry him to withdraw before she
has learned to love him.
It Is Idiotic, in tho first place, to drive
away the men who might propose for the
man who never proposes, and. In the
second place, the woman who lets nny
man, save the man to whom shp is actu

Is the life of trade, and nothing enhancos

as seeing that other men want her.
