"The natives are as excited as

one of the missionary chauffeurs.
"The machine itself, everything about

Rut the motor vehicles are not the

That's Why Married Life
!% Of Berton Braley Proved
A Failure.
Philadelphia.?His wife wasn't a
cave woman. That is why Berton
Braley, poet, and Mrs. Marion Rubin
cam Braley. writer on beauty subjects,
have broken up their home in Green
wich Village. New York, and arc
awaiting the result of her divorcc
Mis. Braley says she and the poet
are separating for "reasons the pub
lic would not understand." Mrs. Al
bert Rubincam, mother of the
has found the explanation in Braley's
poems. Lack of cruel and barbarous
treatment might be said to be th*
j Just what Braley expected from his
j bride he revealed in' the poem:?
"Listen, sweetheart, to my plea.
Cut this highly cultured game.
j All this fine gentility
Grows to be exceeding tame:
What I want is low-brow love.
Heavy, knockdown, cave man stuff;
I'm no cooing turtle dove;
Treat me rough, kid; treat m?
But after they were married. Mrs.
Braley failed to comply with th?
poet's specifications. In fact, he com
plained that she went out too much,
in the following verse:?
"Everybody cannot be left to roam.
Careless and blithe and free;
Somebody's got to stay at home
Somebody else?not me."
Furthermore, his marital experience
shook Braley's faith in all women
for he wrote:?
"Keep away from women, boy.
And play a lonely game.
For the bad ones make you crooked.
And the good ones make you tame."
But the poet and the beauty expert
after finding marriage a comedy arc
i parting good friends:?
"And so we part in friendship; yes.
With neither pain nor bitterness;
And unbewitched, we plainly see
The meaning of our comedy.
! Yet. this we know. and. knowing smile
At least we loved a little while."
