AND SHE Would Have Put Up With All His Faults, Would Have Clung to Him Forever and Would Even Have Worked to Help Him. By Fay Stevenson Cp)rtM, till, tr tht flfM 1-uhllitUf C. (Tkj Nr Tilk LimUu Wult) WHY are some men llko "Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater bad a wife and couldn't keep her?" Why do their wives run home to mother at their first frown, while other men can lose a fortune, stov for days at tho club, and still keep their wives' first love? In other words, why do somo wives stand by their hus bands through thick and thin, while others will not even allow their husbands to mention tho fact that the morn ing cup of coffee has grounds in It without charging them with extreme cruelty? Wc have all known noble little women, whose hus bands have squandered away large fortunes, to hustle about and open up a bearding house, start a children's private school, establish a millinery shop, or In ecme way help tbe unfortunate man along. We have 6een the daughters of ministers and splendid men tolerate a husband who is gtven to excess in arinklng: In fact, cling to him with devoted tenderness. And, much as wo talk over the Jealousies of wom ankind, many proud women have for given their husband) more than once when there wus another woman in tbe case. If l mttuiH.- nn.i niiAn quite alarming how much setne wive I will forglvo and how little other wives win take from the "Peter. Peter, pumpkin eater" type of man. And herein lies the secret. Some men may be made of straw, and weak, and everything under tbe sun that they shouldn't be, but they have also tho redeeming qual Ity of being sympathetic. Above -ill. they are human nnd tender and kind to women. A wife can really reach them nnd they understand the feminine naturp. They are Just like dear old ladles and they will s t down nnd rock and gossip and feel Just the right, sympathetic way about things. They will let a woman talk about her headache or art centreplcco or re covering the parlor suite. Thry nre able to hear tho full description of a neighbor's new gown without pulling out a fresh clgnr and glancing fever ishly nt the clock: they remember Aunt Jane's sewing box and cry r.al tears when one reads a letter describ ing how she Is suffering with a fatal disease. They nrn not couted ovf-r with that Indescrlhnblo hardness call ed masculinity. They 'do not go on tho theory that "a woman is only a woman but a good clgur is a smoke." They mako a companion of woman and do not give hex that decided Ini- i presslon of "remember tho dlffereni-o In our sexes. I am u man and )on jnro a womsn." I nut the Peter Pumpkin eater type of man is so hard ari so coated with his own masculinity that his wife has lit tle In common with him Ho never "sits down with her, nor lets her into his heart. He may be faithful to her, he may be tho most perfect man on earth, but when be dares to complain of the coffee grounds, or when he Just frowns tho tiniest bit at his wife, ohe Is ready to leave him for life. It Isn't the coffee grounds and It irn't tho Does Your Parasol Match Your Vest? T HIS braided vest of blue sand and navy blue braid new addition to woman's ci lHjVinf your parasol in ceaort, to 1919 frown which Is to blajno either. It Is that miserable, hard, unsyinpatbttle masculine viewpoint, which crushed all her love right In the beginning of heir married life. Woman can sometimes forgive the straw man. the weak man, jtlmply be coute of this tenderness and sweet ness toward life, which binds her to him as a tender vine clings to its prop. Sao feels that no matter what this man has done, she must cling to htm through It all. It is not easy for her to forget these heart-to-heart talks. Their sympathy Is bound to gether. intertwined as the roots of two plants which have grown side by side for years. Her ono doslre Ls to help him. The average wife leaves her girl hood home and friends and glvet herself entirely to her husband. 8h expects him to be "in tune" with ber. to be sympathetic, to spend whole evenings rocking and chatting with her. She expects him, masculine as he may prefer to appear, to nter Into some of her fomlnlne topics of conversation, to look at life through the fnmlnlno eye Just for a few mo ments. Gut this la an Impossible task for home of the best men In tbe world They mean to be kind, they mean U give their wives the beM things In life, nnd so they do perhaps. In a worldly sense, but they cannot lift that masculine, abrupt, blunt way of looking nt life. If they should happen to marry a wife who Is broad enough to grasp th"ir masculine viewpoint, to find h'r sympathy and sentiment In women friendships, their married life would run on In perfect tranquil lity. Hut If any unsympathetic, hard type of man is unfortunate enough to marry a tvplcally feminine, all-worn-nn woman, there Is bound to be a crash some dsy. And then when th crash comas all the world wonders why some wives are such clinging vines and will go through thick and thin while poor little Peter Tumpkln eater, who fcms te- be a perfectly good man, has to much trouble to keen a wtfa.
