EY REV. T. B. GREGORY.

When at length the things besau

Out that was almost the last plce
to be brought in. And. in the mean
time, tlie.v did not even have a cloth
to dust the urniture as the men
i act It in place.
It was ' before the van started
back for tho lat load. Helen and
Delia were trying to .straighten around

room to another, hardly knowing
where to begin. , , .
When Warren came at 0 they had
been able to acoompllt-h but little.
"Haven't sot all the. things here

Helen hurrk-dly explained about tho

"Ves. they said it would late,

"Oh. but Warren, that'll be oo expen

fixed and things straight enough.'
"I told you we were going: to a ho

Helen turned away with nulvonne
lips. He had hud none of the worx

Aoman s Lica and Ruses .
BY JEAN PINOT.
VjyifAT is the eternal feminine?
What are her attractions and
virtues? A strange charm hovers
aboul her, which is infinite because It
Is indelbiable. As the cNtremes at
tract one another, the prehistoric
man was drawn toward woman, to
ward one who was a child or a slave.
This gave to woman her fault's and
llko all other weak and oppressed
creatures, she always sought refuge
in lying or ruses. Her cat-like grace
of movement seemed to synlhetir.e
the mysteries of her soul nnd the
direction of her life. The poets who
praised her and called, her a goddess
never ceased to sue lu her the force
of lying and betraying. Man's laws
of honor always appeared strange to
her. The celestial Joys which woman
gnvo to man have always been poi
soned by her lack of that honesty
which was called a masculine vlrluf.
This, nt any rate, la the opinion of
man. who hat; taken upon himself to
transmit to posterity the merits and
demerits of the two sexes. Hut man
became used to woman's lies, as we
become used to thorns as the Inevita
ble companions of the rose.
And At 111. as woman rose higher
on the social ladder, her sou en
nobled !t,c!f. Haying "eeased lo be a
slave, woman loses and b; still lonlns
her principal Mlgirta. tin; cowardice
of lying. Woman is becoming mre
sincere- Far from accepting her In
ferlorliv hypocritically, she openly
demands her rights. She raises her
bead and ahnoxl makes her master
bow his. b'be breaks Into the solid
squares which form the domain ex
clusively reserved for man.
As doctor, lawyrr. writer and jour
nalist she has proved ihei s-lf the pu.
fe?sor of sterling qualities which
make men ftar and respect her. In
all thesu MiialUu she h;is proved
herseif lo posy-i:it; a professional senfie
of honor, quite different from the lie
which for i-entorlvH. has been 'nf of
womaiu's attrlbiiteF. And as virtue Is
oft'ii as contagious as v!,;e, veracity
?eem; lo take possession more nnd
more of v.'oimin'v" sreil. The f.;nialo
Satan, the delight of s tho poets and
novelist and the shocker of readers,
who amuse-; ho.-irejf tortur'.ns th
hewr' or man aivl drowning biro In
her lrp. has bfinin; an anachronism.
lndr tb lutlufiice of the e!lt" of
womci who r.-ork and think, "tho
standard of feminine life Is rabed ev
erywhere. Modern woman strives far
nvjTf than hr predecessors towards
boioniiu an honest human being In
steud of a perverse goddess She re
spects truth and becomes Imbued with
the real sentiments of honor.
The real beauty of life is the king
dom you establish In It by truth. Tho
true value of human bolnga la based
on their moral supremacy.
Looking noon life with tho gravity
becoming one who ba-s been liberated
from a serfdom an i!d as the world,
woman learna to understand more
that her eqnalltv Is to be founded
only upon a morality more serene and
more elevated than that of nvm.
The fntura of humanitv depends
first, of all upon this noble rivalry be
tween the two scxcb. And If nothing
else wer accompllBbed thereby but
the enlarging' of the empire of truth
in the voi-ld thin ought to be reason
enough to throw open to woman all
th careers of man.

said my friend the village carpenter.
"What's worrying mo Is what the

tinued, "with nothing to do! I'd go
stark, staring mad."
"A man can always find intervals,"
I explained. "There's gardening."
"So I've beard." he said. "Per
sonally. I prefer sawing wood."
"Then there's the family," I con
tinued. "You'd be able to take tho
. children out. for a walk."
"Are you going to have Iwcnty
one bourn a day with nothing to do?"
he asked. "Because If so, that'll
make It all right. 1 reckon . there'll
be enough for me and the old wo
ina'n without troubling about any
thing else." -
I ohcored him up with the hope,
that tbc change was unlikely to be
brought about this time and left
him putting heart and soul into the
planing of a four-Inch plank. Hut ,
he had set mc thinking. Three-hours-a-dav
work, one hopes, is a
miscalculation, but the.' eight-hour
day is already with -us, and may
very easily become a. Universal law,
and with "it. a new problem already
faces tho reformer.

Hut. the sreut hulk or tho Work

of shirking their play. Tbey have
got lo puIJ themselves together and
reform themselves. One esui't re

zen. He'll never be fit for anything
else but Work.
The worklnginan is loo fond of
looking at oilier people playing. With
his hands in his pockets and a pipe
or cigarette in his mouth no can
watch other people play for bourn.
That Is his Idea of sport. It Is my
Idea or loafing. The sight of these
