hat as a rule, flirts, both male and fe

es are that a girl who becomes engaged

into a confirmed old maidi If she does
wed, as a general rule, she developes in
to a virulent wasp, makes ber husband
miserable, and brings up her children
badly. It is not very difficult to find
easons why flirts do not marrv. Sensi
ble men admire in a woman something
besides a pretty face and engaging man
ners. They love intellect, common sense
and heart qualifications, which the flirt
does not possess. 1 he true woman al
lows her atiections full play, and is not
ashamed of them. She will never lead
man to believe she cares for him when
she does no snch thing t she Will not flirt
with him just for the sake ot flirting,
She has a true conception ot what is
right, and poBesses a great rteal more
