A young girl who is rather unusu ally pretty and briFht asks me why it is that while she can easily cap ture, she can never hold the fickle masculine fancy. She says that she is, in vaudeville parlance, a sure-fire hit with men on first acquaintance, but she never gels an encore. When she meet." a man he Is al most invariably attracted to her. He comes to see her a few times; pays her a few attentions and then?good night tn Mr. Romeo! He never re turns, and it leaves the poor girl guessing as to why this is thus, and what she has done to kill his inter est in her and scare him oft the premises. Admittedly the way of a man with a maid Is one of the three mysteries ; on earth that are beyond human intelligence to solve. Nobody knows. j not even the man himself, what at tracts him to the girl and makes him want to camp on her doorstep and ? follow her around like Faithful Fido. 1 When he gets over this feeling of ! desiring to eat out of a maiden's hand and be alway.-* Johnnte-on-the ! spot, there Is a perfectly definito ' explanation of his reversal of emo ! tion. Somehow, some way, the girl has ' gotten upon his nerves. She bores him, and a man can forgive a woman ' every other crime on the calendar. and love her still, except that. When \ she begins to make him tired all bets are off, even matrimonio ones. Boredom is at the bottom of all man's faithlessness. Now, why girls bore men is an other matter already yet, y' under stand, Mawruss, but chief among those maidens' who make men a-weary is; j The girl who Is too anxious to lUease men. There is nothing easier for a girl to do than to overdo the welcome business. A man likes to feel that his society is pleasing and his attentions agreeable to a young wom an, but when she hangs flags out j of the window and rings the Joy bell when he comes to make a casual , call, it ?fills him with a deep, dark ! suspicion that she's not used to mas I cuUne admiration, and that he has ? blundered into picking out a wall j flower that all other men have pass , ed by. Therefore, the girl who is too 1 anxious to please men is the vic ! tim of her own desire to pleas?". She is a bungling hunter who scares away her game, a fowler who ?preads her tracks too openly and ; clumsily, and man flees from her presence as from the danger of ' sudden death. On the other hand, there's the girl who plays indifferent. She also makes men tired, because while a man .doesn't want a girl to lAve fits of Joy over his paying her aome ! attention, neither does he car% to ; be treated as dirt under the feet of 1 a haughty and unapproachable maiden. Perhaps our great grand , papas fell for the Lady Disdain stuff, but it doesn't go nowadays. It takes nice judgment in a girl to know how to adopt just the right attitude towards men, for it is equally fatal for her to be either , too anxious or too indifTerent; too hot or too cold; too gushing or too | repressed. She must have neither a j Y .ale lock on her door, nor a mat with ' Welcome on It before it. Another reason why men grow ; weary ia because many a girl Is ? rursed with too much family. Heav en only knows how many girls have '' had desirable suitors, who would have made good husbands, driven away by father and mother, and little sister and little brother, and grandmother and grandfather, and Aunt Harriett considering it their ... :?*<! duty to entertain the young man when ho calls, instead of leav ? ing it to Jane. A man must be desperately in .Jove, indeed, before h* gets to the [l>c I ? Ug-atiero. -iu^-c-aj. **??*?. ? fl for ?at?v? er*s reminiscenses of his early day? on the farm, and all the details of mother's last operation, and to have little Mary mess up his beat suit with her all day sucker. Hence, when a young man flnds out that when he goes to see a girl he's got to aee. and listen, to her entire family, he is mighty ^pt not to make a second call. Another girl who gets on a man's nerves is the monologue gtrt. The monologue girl thinks that the way to be entertaining to a man is to keep up a perpetual stream of talk that has never a break nor a pause in it. She never gives him a chance to eay anything but just pours over him a torrent of words. words, words, until she leaves him gasping for breath, and with only strength enough left to beat it away from her presence, and thank <ioi he is not married to a wife with a per petual motion tongue. Still another girl who gets on men*s nerves is the girl who brags. ; She is the girl who. wh**n she is ; away from home, languidly refers | to our butler, and our footman, and i our chauffeur, and who speaks of winters in Palm Beach and summers' at Newport xs if everybody wer? millionaires, although perhaps she really lives in a two-by-four fiat. ' and helps mother with the work. and rides on the street cars. Worst ' of all. she boasts of the man whom she claims to have refused to marry Which decides the man on j the spot that she shan't add his name to her list. Then there's the hinting girl who1 holds a man up. and the girl who talks about herself and her family, and the girl who has a mission, and the giggling girl, and th* girl who , tries to bo vivacious.
