Too Many Girls Make the Mistake of Imagining Themselves In
Love" With a Man When Their Real
.Feeling is Friendship.
By ELLEN AbAlIi
TUB younff woman who Is sulricientlv
stronff-mtnded to break oft her en
gagement when aha discovers that heart
cannot truthfully so with hand Is often
an object of mueh censure and a Rood
deal of unjust criticism.
"What n flirt that Blrl 1st" the 'rnr
moralists will exclaim, without In the
least Investigating; the whys and where
fores of the case.
And as for the unfortunate damsel's girl
friends, they will swoop around her like
so many curious little birds of prey, seek.
1n for gossip to retail to me wnoio
"My dear, we hear you've broken oft
your engagement with Harry!" they ex
claim In chdrus, "can It be true?"
And she replies that It Is.
But Isn't he really nice?"
"res," says tho Mile fitrt uncomfort
ably "Then why don't you marry hlm?"
comes the chorus with a terrible nccent
on tho "why."
to mat sno can
only reply that she
really doesn't quite
know, only o n 1 y
well, thcro was
Her friends all de
cided that they
never knew such a
Why Bhe should
break oft an en
gagement with a man she acknowledges
Is a really excellent creatute Is beyond
But these Inqulsltlvo friends really don't
understand the circumstances of the case.
When a girl breaks oft her engagement
thero Is generally somo quite all-sulllclng
reason for tho doing of tho same, dcsplto
tho remarks of tho critic.
The mistake docs not llo In tho ending
of tho engagement, but In tho fact that It
has ever existed at all. Hero again the
critics get busy. "She had no right to
accept tho man If sho didn't Intend to
marry him," they dcclaro righteously.

IN VIEWS ON SHAW CAR
Followers Say They Will Buy

There promise to bo some Interesting
legal complications surrounding the jollow

Association. Tho constable who seized tho
car from tho suffrnglst's homo In Moylah
to satisfy a delinquent State tax of (126
declared he would advortlso Its public salo
today, nnd followers of Doctor Shaw as
sert that they will buy It.
But some of tho suffragists, It Is said,,
will not support Doctor Shaw In tho
stand she has taken. A young woman
at tho party headquarters In Media to
day said that sho anil other members
could see no reason for tho doctor's at
titude. Meanwhile, a statement comes from
Doctor Shaw herself. Sho is away on
business at Plttsfleld, Mass. Sho said,
"Tho salo will probably tako place, and
tho little yellow motor known ns Eastern

of the tyrannical and Inconsistent atti

Doctor Shaw haB placed the case In tho
hands of three attorneys, and develop
ments are expected when the little auto
will bo put up for sale. It Is contended
by tho luffraglst that she has violated no
law. When requested to make out her
statement of personal property In 1913,
Doctor Shaw Bald that the document
given her explained that the asscsor could
make out such a list himself. He did so,
sho Bald, but took no pains whatever to
ascertain tho amount of her propert.
The suffragist haa witnesses, she said, to
testify to tho fact that instead of comply
ing with this reasonable provision of tho
law, the asscsor boasted that he would
mako tho assessment so largo that It
would compel Doctor Bhaw to make a
statement. Ho assessed her taxable per
sonal property at $30,000.
Tho tax bill Is not tho only ono that
will bo charged against tho automobile
If It Is sold by tho constable. Today Con
stable Mathuea received for collection a
bill for teaching Miss Lucy Anthony,
Doctor Shaw's secretary, to run the- car.

Stlllwell, salesman of the Johnson Motor
Car Company, and amounts to J3.68. It
Is Itemized as four hours' teaching at

Tonight, It the bill bo not paid In the
