WILL MONOPOLY OF A MAN
HEAD OFF ALL COMPETITION?
By DOROTHY DIX.
The Rev. Dr. Talmage once told his
congregation that nine-tenths of all
divorces are due to the temptations of the
summer vacation, and he warned -women
not to go off on a summer vacation
unless they were willing to risk losing
Is Dr. Talmago right or wrong? Does
the summer vacation promote domestic
felicity, or Is It the first aid to the divorce
Is a woman more sure of being In a
man's thoughts when she Is so directly
under his eye that It Is physically im
possible to forget her. or does he think
most tenderly of her when she Is far
away, and her remoteness makes a trans
figuring haze that magnifies her charms
and conceals her faults?
Should a wife. In particular, who de
Elres to retain her husband's affection,
give him her society In allopathic or
Ttvo Views, About Husbands.
This Is a problem concerning which
there Is a great diversity of opinion In
feminine circles. Some -women contend
that, as man Is but a creature of habit
and Imperfectly domesticated at best. It
Is never safe to let him quit eating out
of your hand, while other women hold
that more love Is bored to death than
Is killed In any other way.
And both of these opposite theories
have a certain degree of right on their
We all admit that propinquity is the
great match-maker, and If It Is so valu
able In catching a man It should be
equally useful In holding him. The wo
men who subscribe to this belief are
those who never leae their husbands
for a single day, and Insist upon sharing
all of their work and pleasure Theirs
is the matrimonial trust spirit to estab
lish such an Iron-bound monopoly over
a man that It will head off all competi
tion. It cannot be denied that there Is much
to be said In support of this view of the
situation There is nothing for keeping
a man home of evenings like knowing
he has to render an account of himself
If he Is absent, and the fear of his wife
Is the beginning of virtue In more hus
bands than we wot of.
Lor Can Die of Ennui.
Not all of the arguments, however, are
on the side of those who contend that
lovo must bo alwajs a personally con
ducted excursion; for If love can die of
loneliness In the absence of Its beloved,
it is equally susceptible to the blight
ing Influence of ennui, and the deadest
dead love in the world is that which has
yawned Itself into the grave.
In married life there can be no gain
Baying the fact that the majority of peo
ple quarrel because they see too much
of each other, and thus get on each otn

married three days a week, Instead of

The great tragedy of absence between
married people Is when they must be
parted for a long time. Then the Inev

Combination Illustrated Insures
Flatness Around the Hips, With
Neither Lines Nor Wrinkles.
It Is a Very Satisfactory Model
for Every Woman.
In making the dresses of the present time the
main consideration is the preservation of the slender,
youthful outline which fashion has decreed shall be
retained. This cannot be done if the underwear is
at all bulky, and it has been found that the use of
the combination style of underwear is a great help
in reducing the amount of material which must
be covered by the outer garment.
Of course, the arrival -of summer means also
that sheer materials will be used to the exclusion of
nearly all others, at least in all dresses except the
plain tailor-made styles. This makes the demand
for compact underwear insistent, and it is impossi
ble to be well dressed without giving this point due
Many of the newer garments are cut in a single
piece, and for these there is no material quite equal
to embroidered flouncing. Manufacturers are mak
ing it in many different widths with the same pat
tern adapted to them, and in this manner we can
purchase the narrow flouncing for the corset covers
which we make, while wider pieces are obtainable
for the petticoats and drawers.
Colored Underwear Pretty.
The liking for underwear madeof colored ma
terials adds a very pretty note to the outfit for sum
mer wear. The dainty pink and blue and lilac flower
designs which are found in organdie are often used,
and the silk and cotton mixtures in delicate color
ings take their turn as well.
All materials, whether white or colored, are very
elaborately trimmed or embroidered. The idea of
flatness is always borne in mind, however, and the
edgings are put on flat, and any quantity of inser
tions are used. Ribbon, beading, inserted medal
lions, and, of course, the loveliest of hand work are
all pressed into the service of the wearer of dainty
Take for example the combination shown in the
accompanying illustration. It is certainly charming
just as shown, made of wide flouncing, the corset
cover seamed down the center of the back, to insure
flatness here, and allowed a very little fullness in
front. The deep yoke gives absolute plainness
around the hips, and the fact that the flouncing is
attached with pleats instead of gathers means that
there will be no lines or wrinkles anywhere.

"To the rain?" questioned
Marion, wrinkling up her nose

to be visited by the sight-seers. The
guests arriving In the automobiles were
received by Mrs. W. H. De Shields and
her assistants, all of whom were gowned

of Dutch boys and girls and flags.
During the refreshments of pretzels ana
Iced tea the party took as Its subject of
conversation the country being visited,
which, with the Dutch decorations and
characteristic refreshments, made the
scene very real and interesting.
No Consideration for Distance.
Having no consideration for distance to
be traversed, the tourists sped away In
the big sight-seeing cars to the home of
Mrs. A. H. Thompson, which, for the oc
casion, was Greece.
Here again suitable refreshments were
served,' and the home visited was trans

artistic little country as soon as they
were admlted to Mrs. Thompson's home,

many pictures of Grecian ruins helped
to carry out the Idea.
From Greece the party went to Italy,

the travelers were served with such Ital
