By Marguerite Mooera Marshall. Ambrose had four Wives. Not contemporaneously, but with a proper consecutlveness four delightful women willingly promised to love, honor and obey Ambrose. Yet he waa not handsome. Ho was not rich. He "You see, I knew Ambrose," Mrs. Vandercook explained, smilingly. "He waa an uncle of mine. I come from Louisville, Kentucky, and he waa a Southern man. I really do think (hat the men or the South make more love and more skilful love than Northerners, and I also think that Europeans are more adroit at expressing sentiment than Americans." "And women do like men to show that they cjire," I observed. "Indeed they do!" exclaimed Mra. Vandercook, opening her blue eyes wide. They are very pretty eyes, and her face haa that peculiar roundness and softness which Southern women retain for so long. With her aab- brown hair and her supple curves ahe la an attraotlvo and youthful figure. "The man moat attraetive to women ii, above everything alas, the man moat attraetsd by them. He is the man to whom, through out hia life. Woman is the su preme thing. He is eminently impressionable. The msn for whom every woman haa a weak ness is the msn who makes her feel while she tslks to him that aha is ths only thing in the world." "llcadintt of Ambrose It seemed to DM thut he was the typo which wo Qsacrlbf nowadays us 'a good fuaser'," 1 remarked. "And you Ixilieve that aort la attractive to others besides very young girls?" A CASE OF IMPROVING WITH AGE. "Consider Amliroae'a matrimonial record!" laughed Mrs. Vandercook. "His flrat wife, indeed, was a alxteen-year-old girl; It was a caae of spring time fancy. Hut the second woman he married wns In the full pride of Intelligent young maturity; rhe waa the greateat love of his llfo. I be lieve that the most sentimental man haa a grand pusBlon.

"And et lie had neither wealth nor good looks," 1 mused. Kor he merely owned half a country store, and at nineteen he stood six feet four In his stocking feet, with big hones, u high forohead, straight, atraw-colored hair and solemn, light-blue eyea. "A man need not bs good-looking in order to make a hit with women." atated Mra. Vandercook.

That's what Mra. Margaret Vandercook explains to ua 1n her recently published novel, "The Loves of Ambrose."

The first two act directly, the last Is or great Indirect assistance In understanding the ways of womankind. metaphorioally. And they Ilka aympsthy snd tenderness to be expressed. WHY EUROPEANS ARE BETTER LOVERS THAN AMERICANS. "I have aald that Kuroponns are bettor lovers than Americana, but I do not believe It Is because Amerl .cans are without aentlment. Only many of them keep It ao well hidden! Kor their own aakes they ought not to do so, and for the sake of Ameri can women. I don't believe that all the International marrluges are sim ply an exchange of money for social poaitlon. In fact, I have a number of friends moat happily married to Kuropeans who are not afraid to love ami to ahow that they love." "Hut how does the quality of humor aid a man In his love affaire?" I ii.Li.l "In n 1 1 I ... n .1 mm W l.l valuable, of course, but what does It do for .1 lover?" "It helps him In hia task of under i standing women and sympathizing I with them," she replied. "He avoids I useless tragedies. A eenae of humor means a sense of proportion and ! therefore an appreciation of values So much unhapplness can be avoided if one, doesn't take the world too se riously." "You believe In falling In love, don't you?" I Charged Mra. Vandercook. "I do," she. admitted, candidly. "The bsat way in. tha world for a man to keep young is to keep on falling in lovs. I don't rec ommend dynamite, which is fall ing in love with s new woman whan you have an old one. But why can't a man just fall in love again with hia wife, and rscourt her till he wakes both of them up?" Now wouldn't It lie a welcome nov elty If he did that very little thing Hut tho average man Is the one wh remarked to Mra. Vandercook the ; other day, "Ore!
