By BETH JEFFRIES. Testimony brought out in the Carman trial as to the cause of Mrs. Carman's jealousy of her husband, which le sulted in the installation of a dicto graph, and u consequent accusation and trial for murder, is an interestim side light on the double standard. Mrs. Carmtui was suspicious, and when fiuestfoncd as to thc cause, stated that the joking reference of male friends of her husband, to "hl3 girls" had lies! sown the seeds in her mtod. "A JittTc thing," she called It. "a nimor," and "one ald that thc doctor was 'some devil. and that he stayed out all night." What a cowardly and unmanly thing, this jestinf, ubout immorality and the open byplay on thc double standard. Merely realizing that such a standard does exist to most men H hard enough for women to giasp; they are not taught by the laws of thc land nor by the church that any such thing is al lowable, and when they discover that laws of God and man are merely some thing to he winked at, they are shocked Then thev go all through the thing again, when the double standard comes down to cascj and is cast up on their own doorsteps. If the double standard, so grossly un just .ind unfair to woman that it can- not exist legally and openly, fa still to be considered, women should never be punished for any attempt to avengo themselves. Much less should they be openly taunted bv men with references to other women. The fact that the re marks of thc kind which sow suspicion are made in jest la a guarantee of thc fact that they have some detinite foun dation. Men joke about actualities, not about imaginary things. Fashion Chatter By JEAN ELIOT. Boots, to be smart this season, must have cloth about them. Yes. even slip pers and house shoes are piebald, while the fashionable street hoots resemble specimens of the Inlayer's art, with plain cloth uppers, colored gaiters, simulated gaiteis and set in pieces of cloth, much in evidence. White sputs are seen, but are too striking to be really popular, ivhile fawn color and sundry grays are quite the mode. Leather, it ,eems. is scarce and rap idly becoming scarcer, so manufacturers asieed that it must be conserved and substitutes used w hcrcver possible, hence the vogue of cloth. At first mod els were made up in modest designs at very teasonablo prices, for cloth in its various forms is cheaper than leather; but the public would have none of them at anv price. Later came a deluge of daring and original confections, for which the dealers asked two nrices. and j the deed was done. The publlr which I i.c fused to be coerced consented with cn j thusiabin to being cajoled. Many of Lite iuuucio uu uoui:i!itf.ui smart, out there arc a hundred ways of Koing I wronx and each is seized upon by a sec tion of the feminine world. The plain dull kid walking boot, sim ple and well cut for street wear seems to be a thing of the past, most regrettably from my point of view; and whoever re sists the lure of the parti-colored charm er Is driven to the flat-heeled shoe, which may be sensible, but is far from beauti ntt I "or the rest fashions seem to have c talized and to lie much less outrage ous than the early models promised.

"D OCTOH, what Is an abscess?" asked a fond mother when told that her six had an "abscess in its ear a gathering oi maiicr mauc up tor tne moat Part of germs, broken up tissue, white blood cclN, and lie other scavengers of the blood." was my explanation. "But, doctor," persisted the worried parent, "how in tlie world did this pus form inside my baby's car?" "An abscess or mass of 'purulent microbes and de generative substances is nothing more or less than the reennants of a battlefield,' I explained. "One single, tonesome. solitary bacillus of la grippe, of tonsllitls, or pharyngitis Is suctioned into the eustachian tube a sewer Pipe for ventilating and sucking air from the chamber in the middle ear to thc back of the mouth where it bur- DR.

It nourishes like a green hay tree. In a word, that one bacillus or "coccus" within thc hour has in creased and multiplied over the sore throat and no.se, car channel tube and middle ear cavity into billions of vicious Invaders. These now begin a battle royal with the blood elements and the tissue juices. The result of that fray is a battlefield strewn with dead and dying germs as well as dead and dying tissue cells.

Ono of the most frequent complica tions of cool weather ills in children between six months and six years of ago is an abscess In the ear. A par ent or a physician who neglects to keep this in mind is often to blame for deaf ness in grown-ups, perhaps a score of vnrtra later. If an abscess is not cleanly and prop- J erly punctured so that the matter can exude outside of the tissues, in many Instances it will rupttire Internally and reach some vital point. Thus may re sult from the ear abscess pus on the brain. In appendicitis it may spell peri tonitis, blood poisoning, and death. Abscesses are usually thc outcome of some physical slip-up. "Excesses cause abscesses" would not be a bad slogan to remember. (raiiyrlKht. 1?R XeTspaDcr Feature Service.)
