To flirt or not to flirt?
We have learned that women do not rote with sex solidarity In States
whore they have the suffrage. Nevertheless, In thla discussion they nre,
almost to a woman, casting their
ballots in favor of flirtation.
The stern moralists who disap
prove are nearly all men. To-day,
for Instance, a masculine reader an
nounces that "flirtation Is liko a
lighted match applied to a can of
gasoline." He Bays he feels sorry
tor women who "flirt to catch hus
bands," and that eventually they will
be relieved of this humiliating ne
eeeslty. On the othor hand, a woman
reader confesses kup "flirts with tha
coalman, the milkman and the Par
ker House roll man, the butcher, the
doctor and his twin brother, the un
dertaker." And she has not the
grace to say that she Is ashamed of
heraelf, though she iloes put for
ward the plea that hhe can't help ;
flirting. I imagine, howover, that what she terms flirting Is Just the general1
exercise of a personal quality of charm a soul quality which may and
should gladden tho milkman and the Parker House roll man. Any woman
with tho holly spiritual gift of charm owes it to the world to charm as
many nersons aa possible.

Here Is the letter of the woman
rtadtr who charms the milkman. Ac.
I la followed bv several Interesting
aonmunleatlOBI from other readers:
Dear Mudiin: I'm a tllrt. I flirt
With the coalman, the miikman ar.d 1
the Parker House roll man, th j
hoicher. tiio doctor, Kini even ids
twin brother, tho undertaker, does
not feaze me.
I flirt with the young girl who
holds the lid Of the mall box open
lor me hen she sax s me heading
fur It. 1 thank her very muc h and
aay. 'Tour awfully nice I" Where
upon she follow a mo for half a block
to get a line nn me some more. I
flirt with the kiddles on the street.
When they see me earning they stand
and watch, and when I apeak they
are ready to follow me Into the next
county. They have a nickname for
me, but you'd think I waa ooncolted
if I told you.
It's to f'lrt for mine. If you and
the readers of The BvenlRfl World
do not approve, get Mu.iame Nature
on the wire and tall her down. I
flirt not beosUM "I don't care" but
because 1 couldn't help It If I did
care. Want to know my name for
It? Good Cheer and Brotherly Love.
Pear Madam: Women flirt to eatoh
husbands, poor things! Hut the day
a 111 soon be here when every
woman will barn and know enough
to stand on her own feet, and aha
won't have to do any flirting. A
man, for that matter, will ha la tha
same position. Belf-preservatlon, If
properly understood, means not to
T.lrt, for flirting Is like putting a
lighted match to a can of gasoline.
m. a.
Dea- Madam: "Attentions with
out Intentions" Is not the cor
rect definition of tiie male flirt.
That antahl always has woll-deftned
"Intentions " But why be pessimis
tic? The fllrtnrions old gander usu
ally meets his Waterloo In the form
of a wily femalo who plays the game
a great deal bettor than he does,
.md the idea never filters Into hla
oid bald head that Fhe endures his
M :ty fcr the sake of tho money he
spends on her. A on -sliled llirtatlon
Is Impossible. "The attempt and not
the deed confounds us." It takes two
Trots to make the eoreblnatloa 'and
wasn't It Hinuim who said "there'a
one born every minute"?
S. W. H.
Dear Madam: The professional
fi'rt Is either Ignorant or she lias no
conscience. While tlm former ia
unite harmless, the latter ia the
dangerous type, and I don't think
that men belong In this cat. gory.
She Is cruel nnd gtHWlng and will
aorMos everything to satisfy her
vanity. Well know n examples of her
are Cleopatra, Luoresla Borglgi
Catherine of Russia, Catherine de
Modioli, Madame do M tlnieunii,
Madame de Montespan nnd others,
and no doubt there are sti'l women
who would he exactly the same if
they had the power.
fiut there is another lyp tho In
nocent Mlrt. She Is good and nat
ural, 1 soauie she dors not kno-w she
Is lllrtiui;. She has the charm, love and
po' ry of youth. Wi.o would ro'.i hor
