tiBfe '): waar sar iremf murut jnrnum IF 8INGLE PEOPLE ARE HAPPY. t Knowcth thou why round his neck th dov A collar wn? It la to tell tie la the faithful alave of love. And serves all thoie who aerve him well. ' There are quite s few young wom en who have been receiving attentions from young; men that consider It a fine showing of independence on their part to come ont and tell them that they would never be as hap py If married as when single. This Is all very well to ay but what young man likes to hear It repeat edly and still keep on constantly call ing? She Is old enough to compre hend the meaning of the words which fall dully on the one man's ears who has paid her the compliment of choosing to woo her from all others with marriage Intent. She tosses her head high In the air as she laughingly teases him, imply ing that he is not going to link hjs future to a lady like her. From that time on he supposes that his chances are slim, if in fact he has any oppor tunity to wed this particular maiden. A somber lite a girl of this Idea leads who has never known any young man's preference for her and who never looks forward with sweet ex pectancy to having an ideal lover, who nay declare himself some one time, proposing to be nearer and dearer yet than all others. If she has not the burden of others upon her shoulders, she is turning aside from the path of sunshine will fully into the shadows that may en compass her. It has been said that there is as much perverse nature in a man as in a woman. But do they show it whenever fancy wills? By no means. They know that it is wisest and best not to air their opin ions upon this all-important subject, which means so much to two hearts that are trying to find out love's meaning. Perhaps she has higher ambitions 'than he could hope to satisfy, It oc curs to him. Her parents' home might have more money expended in It than lie could promise her In his. If he takes her at her word, then of what use are arguments or love refrains? It is simply a waste of time, he con cludes. They part, and at that time she dis plays more feeling for him than on any previous occasion. She holds out her hand and, with an air of sincerity, half whispers. "Let us always be good friends whenever we see each other. He is far and away from her 'ere she has time to think If she will be happy when single. Time passes on, and with it his at tention is attracted to another girl- one of Just the opposite belief from his former Ideal. She has a kind word to say about the many married couples whom she knows and prizes highly. Her looks and the tone of her voice bear unmistakable tendencies that warms his very soul. He knew this unspoken devotion had been wanting before. The cheery smile of the glad maiden who comes to open the door of the unpretentious home for him was a double assurance that he was wel come. He puts heart, soul and energy into his suit to win her, and was never sorry that he had given up one single young woman for her future happi ness. Girls, say what you mean, when there are nice young men coming who expect to one day ask your hand in marriage, about remaining single and happy. ATTRACTED BY TOO MANY GIRLS, It waa the little rift within the lute That by and by will make the music mute, And ever widening-, (lowly alienee all; The little rift within the lover'a lute. Or little pitted speck In garnered fruit That rotting inwardly, alowly moldera all. Many clever young women think it is not' worth while to let a suitor, whom they would be sure of, know how really indiapensible his com pany is, how charmed they are with him and how gladly they would accept him as a lover with a view to having him for a husband. He Is too elated, If not quite a little conceited, when he finds that he is considered a catch by some particular woman, who re peats the invitation that he must not fail to come regularly and visit her, and who plies him with party and en tertainment notes for six evenings of the week and walks past his house on the seventh day, expecting him to join her. If she were better acquainted with the pleasant young man it would dawn upon her that when he met her and sought her out of his own accord a number of times he always went away anxious to renew the acquaint ance, to see ber oftener. He is one of 3- . - . i'w. j the many who become satiated ll thrown too often, and by design, in any one young woman's company. Before there is an opportunity, which he fears, of leading up to matrimony he casts his eyes upon this girl and that one, wherever he chances to meet them, fully believing Cupid has won tor him the destined heart mate. He does not play the role of suitor for long. His old accustomed weariness orops out when maidens least expect it. They try to make telling hits when they entertain him by anecdotes con cerning' their girl friends, and bright, jolly gentlemen who used to be their beau ideals ere they were discarded for others that were better liked. Their hopes of drawing him on were dashed when he excused himself at the door for not coming soon again. It is the man who is uncertain as to whether he has made a conquest over a young woman's heart who is most likely to be anxious to win her. No matter how many girls may appear to attract him, they will not appeal to him if they enter love's path of roses. They will make no headway in his af fection. Leave him to himself in wooing. It's the only safe way. There is no help tor it. The breaking off now and then of courtship which, to one at least, seemed a happy one; scarcely no law for the transgression of turning from a heart that would Boon have been wedded because another has been the attraction found. These truths should sink down deep into the souls of men who are given to being attracted to many girls, casting off the old love flame to glow again In new conquest Let no young girl be guile herself into the conviction that such a fickle man will be constant and satisfied with her. She will share the same fate in his estimation that the others experienced being jilted in stead of led to the altar. Think not of what you would call an unhappy love affair. It is an infatuation, sadly mis placed, not attraction tor too many girls. POUTING 8WEETHEART3. My dear and only love, I pray, Be governed by no other away Than thy good Judgment: For, If confusion have a part Which noble aoula abhor And hold a council In thy heart, I'll never love thee more. It would seem to me that few of ouf dear girls give this subject much thought or they would be, oh, so care ful of that one fault some possess at times. Young girls cannot afford to choose the very companions whom they find are uncongenial to them, who ruffle dispositions, are satirical and compel them, as It were, to be on the outs, sad of countenance, pouting, ready to resort to tears, scarcely knowing the reason why when think ing it over afterward. What sweetheart could feel secure In the promise of future happiness, no matter how devoted her lover might appear to be, if time and time again he found an opportunity of trying her disposition on some trifling pretext? A young woman who has had faith in a lover she believed to be ideal and found out some disagreeable ten dencies on his part should ponder well ere she decides to break the tie of be trothal, closing her eyes and ears to his past proclivity and misdemeanors. It is all very well for someone to carelessly remark: "Oh, I wouldn't mind a bit those random words you are pouting overl Why, ft is Just hifl way. You should try to understand f He has been used to talking as it suits him. He has sown his wild oats, and young women are not inclined to turn their backs upon him." A lover of this kind is apt to take much of his time in reaping the har vest Bown. It he sees a sweetheart pouting when he keeps her waiting in her parlor over an hour for his coming, or if he contributes little to her happiness by not inviting her to amusements which she had set her heart upon going to, there is a lapse of his visits which she cannot account for to her friends. It can make mat ters no better to make up with one so Indifferent. She has to find out for herself that they are generally light of love, fickle and apt to fancy every new, pretty face which flits across their path. They are not the strong oaks which young women fondly hope they are. On the contrary, they are the frailest of reeds to lean on when there is need of the love, comfort and companion ship of a helpmate. When a sweet heart learns by the parting of their ways that they were not intended to walk life's pathway together, she should take heart in the belief that a better prospect is in store for her. Poutlngs should be changed to smiles, and the result will be that she will be tenfold more attractive than before. Glad light in her eyes will beautify her expressions and another worthier suitor will bring welcome to her life and happiness to her chilled heart. They will not parade their affection before the world's scrutinizing eyes as formerly. They have congeniality, comfort-seeking and soul-satisfying- principles to devote to each other. There is joy In their faces. Pouting sweethearts are thus of yie past. There is nothing like true love to in fluence heart and face. Political Scheming.
