AS'ss of Matrimony
Br nonoriiv nix.
In two divorce rnoes now pending the
court has boen called upon to rule upon
tba matrimonial kiss and to define what
In the proper length, temperature and
tn on of thesn cases the aggrieved
wife asked for a divorce because her
husband apent hours bestowing .soul
kisses on her.
In the other case the woman asked
for divorce because her huaband re
futed to kiss her at all, claiming that he
regarded kisses as unaanltarr.
When both kissed and unklssed wtvei
claim that they have been subjected to
cruel and inhuman treatment that en
titles them to alimony, what Is a poor
husband to do? It adds another and a
dangerous complication to the domestic
osculation problem, which is always a
h explosive In the family circles any
The why of the kiss of courtship is
obvious to all. It is the flower of dealre,
the red rose of romance. It Is gar
landed with moonbeams, and set to the
lilt of music, and its time is the hour
that is sacred to love.
But the daily kiss of matrimony Is an
other affair. Its Inspiration is habit.
Ha time, the minute when we are moat
rushed and most engrossed with material
cares. Its aroma Is that of bacon and
It Is the profanation of all romance,
and why Intelligent people persist in
keeping up a cuatnm whose significance
has been lost, whose very soul is dead,
passes all comprehension.
The minute a kiss becomes a daily cus
tom, like brushing your teeth, or doing
up your hair, it loses it savor. It la no
longer a thrill. It Is a bore. It Is a flat,
stale and meaningless custom that gets
on our nerves, and that we would all
gladly cease to observe If we dared.
J Women know this, and. yet so wedded
are they to ancient superstitions that the
average wife would feel herself exceed
ingly ill-used If her husband omitted his
diurnal duty dry-aa-dust kiss, although
every time she receives It she hears In

T: Neither Is it any Indication that his
wife no longer cares for him because she
receives the peck on her cheek in the
spirit in which It was given and with her
mind centered more on what she Is go
ing to order from the grocer than on the
temperature of her husband's parting
Very likely both husband and wife love
f each other a thousand times more deeply
and more tenderly than they did In the
days of courtship, when every kiss was
a sacred rite and every touch of the Hps
cet their Wood on fire.
After marriage comes the business of
fe, when the very existence of love de
pend upon the husband and wife turn
ing their thoughts to the practical affairs
of making money and making a com
fortable home. In the midst of this hustle
and bustle there Is no place for airy ro
mance and sentimental kisses, and the
pity of it is that married people do not
perceive this, and quit trying to turn
the pink chiffons of romance Into the
scrubbing cloths of dally Ufa.
Probably there la nothing else In the
world that would do more to conserve
teal romance In domesticity than the
abolition of the dally duty kiss, and the
substitution for It of the occasional kiss
of impulse. If we could only kiss those
who are near and dear to us when the
spirit moves us to do it, instead of having
to do It by the clock and because the
time has come around for us to take a
irood morning or a good night pill! What

deceived into thinking this womsn csres

she is considerably older. She Is not

It is most distinctly unfair of tnls boy
to keep up his friendship with, a woman
of questionable character and to be seen
publicly with her. as well aa with you.
Why not Insist that lie make a choloe
either sacrific bis friendship with you
for her, or see no more of yon If he con

for If ho has not the strength of char

you will do him no good ard he might

Grace Darling's Talks to Girls
By onttn ntmnt..
Who Has Won National Recognition n
a Moving Picture Star.
We girls need more words. No. Unit
Isn't a Joke, nnr is It funny. It's a sad
We talk a-plenty, but we use the swim
words over and over again until the )nni
things are all worn out. and frayed
around the edses, and back broken, and
generally played out. .
And half the time the word we h ri
nsing was no more Intended to express
what we are trying to say than a crochet
neodle was designed to dig the Pananut

take refuge In slang. The only words we
know are so pitifully Inadequate to ex
press what we are trying to convey that
we selie upon the first handy crutch that
we can lay our tonguo to.
You never realise how povert . v -stricken
we are in the matter of a vocabulary un
til you listen to the chatter of a lot girls
and observe how they overwork some one
or two words.
For Instance, 1 know a girl who would

suddenly depr ived of the word "cute.- In
one breath she will tell you that a doll,
or a baby la cute. In the next she nlll
ssy that Xlgara Falls are cute
Last summer I wss riding with her In
the park, and she asked me If 1 dnln t
think that the Obelisk was cute, and that
it was cute of the EgypJan government
to have presented It to us. and the cutest
thing that ever was for the park com
missioners to have placed It Juat where
Another girl I know plus her conisa
tional faith to the word "'lerce." She
will tell yon that the fighting In tlie
trenches In France is fierce, and that the
ice cream at dinner was fierce, and the
price of chocolate creams has become
something fierce, or that her new pink
evening dress is the fiercest thing ah
Still another g-rl I know finds the word
swell" a life Mne to which she clings
desperately in every emergency. She will
tell you that they had the swellcst pie
for dinner, that her favorite actor Is
perfectly swell, or that she has Just been
to the awellest play, or that the paiers
have an account of the awellest case of
starvation sho ever heard of, or that she
Is reading the swellest book.
Now these girls are not s4 lipid. They
are not ignorant. They are not lacking
In discernment. They arc merely lacking
In words. They have not enough vocabu
lary with which to express the things
they feel and perceive.
It Is this same lack of vocabulary that
makes people so often say the wrong
thing to us. and offend us when they
mean to please. For exsmple, did you
ever watch the scowl on an artist's face
when some well meaning but wordleax
person told him that his picture. In which
he had tried to paint the agony of a soul
in torment, was "so pretty?"
And a woman novelist, who ha written
a story that Is a great traglo epic, told
me that she feels like cummlttlng murder
every time anybody tells her that her
book Is "sweet."
The real secret of flattery Is to find
out the particular adjective that people
like to have applied to them, and then
use It where it will do the most good.
But we can't do this unless we have a
large and fexlhle vocabulary, and so I
