Try Telegraph Want Ads WEDNESDAY EVENING, HARRTSBURG TELEGRAPH OCTOBER 7, 1914 \^2o(V)en The Debt a Wife Owes to His Mother By BKATIIICE FAIRFAX I There is -an old. old sayinK that a Rood son makes a good husband. Like most of the hits of old-time philos ophy, this Is so very evidently true that It is passed over and forKotten or laufthed at as a "bromidiom." But I recommend It most earnestly to the attention of every prospective bride. I<oyalty, tenderness and sympathy give promise that a man will be al ways kind and considerate of the wo man he loves. If sire loves him too their marriage is Insured against ship wreck. This is simple and evident, and we all agree thereto, do we not? Now, if a man lias been practicing loyalty, tenderness and sympathy toward one women all his life from boyhood up Is not there an exceed ingly good chance that he will go on showing these <|ualltleß In Ills atti tude toward woman? In other words, such a man will he a splendid hus band. Again we all agree! And now I come to a question that I want all the young women who reail to ponder over: Then, does not a young wife owe an inimeasureable debt to the mother, who, in training a good son prepared a good husband for his happy bride? And how do you repay your hus band's mother for all she did ot make him a true man? Ask that of your own hearts! There is nil tob often a breach be tween the mother who made her son an embryonic good husband and the girl who is enjoying the results of that training. Whether It Is the gulf that stretches between the old and the new—and which should not he a gulf, but a bond—or if it be the old, sad feminine tendency to jealousy I am not prepared to judge. But one A NEW FAIL COAT Flaring Effects are as Fashionable for the Little Ones as for Their Elders. By MAY MAN TON Girl 8 Coat, 4 to 8 years. To be really smart every coat must flare and the children's make no exception to the rule. This one shows the ripple effect in the skirt portion and also in the cape. Ft is extremely attractive, including the the new features and it is so simple and easy to make that mothers will be doubly clad of the design. The long waisted body portion is quire plain, being simply seamed to the circular skirt. If a plainer coat is wanted, the cape can be omitted: or, for our changeable weather, it would be a good plan to finish the cape sepa rately and attach with snap fastenings to be worn or not as the aay requires. For school and every day wear, cheviots and various cloths makie the best ma terials but velvet, corduroy and velvet ara fashionable for more dressy occasions. Brown corduroy with the collar ami straps across the back of broadcloth showing some littls silk embroidery makes an ex ceedingly handsome coat.

"THE MOVIE GIRL" "The Movie Girl," which is a com bination comedy-drama and musical comedy, playing at popular prices, gave two performances at the Majestic Theater yesterday and will remain at that stand to-day, with matinee and evening shows. "The Movie Girl" makes no pretense In outrivaling the expensive extravagances that are car ried on the road at high prices, never theless it gives a pleasing entertain ment and affords the audience more to laugh at than many of the bigger shows. A vein of comedy runs through the entire piece and there are plenty of song numbers to please those who like to hear good music.—Advertise ment. "TO-DAY" Great influences for good have been constantly urging attendance upon the play "To-day," to be presented to morrow afternoon nnd evening at the Majestic, because the story Is one of vital importance, and the result has been tht "To-day." long established as the drama Hrst In the affection of theatergoers, has brought thousands' of people to witness the performance who are not In the habit of attending playhouses. It is one of those dra matic miracles that happen so seldom —a play that everyone wishes to see and urges others to do the same, and has netted a fortune to Harrv von Tllzer, the brilliant young producer. With the distinction of having held the boards longer than any drama 1 during the past New York seaaou. of the saddest facts of marriage la that mothers generally lose their boys and seldom Rain a daußhter. And for all the trouble between mothers and sons and sons' wives not 10 per cent, of the mothers are to blame. I often wonder how any young woman dares be unkind to an old one. Has she no thought of the justice of life, of compensation and of nature that gives to each of us what we have won and deserve? lines the young woman who is un kind to her husband's mother and is angry and .iealous at the thought of her husband's visiting his mother with out her even while she refuses to go ta see Ills mother with him. ever stop to think that her sons may marry some day and that the history which repeats Itself is likely to apportion to her some of the same ruthless treatment that she gave another woman? A man loves his mother with the tender, protecting affection that he vame to know during all the years when she worked and slaved and gave her youth and beauty and own pleasure into the measure of making a man of him. He remembers all the sacrifices thai lie was one dny unable to under stand and that no day will ever en able him to repay. And a man gives his love all the more purely and devotedly to his wife if she shows some grateful appreci ation to the woman who made him what he is. When a woman looks backward Into the years of her youth she wants no searing memory of unklndness or of cruelty. And she will have both if t lie 1E remembering that she was harsh and unkind to that other lover of her i husband's lifetime—his mother. "To-day" conies here with a distin guished cast of well-known players.— Advertisement. THE FAY FOSTER COMPANY At the Majestic Theater, Friday aft ernoon and evening, the Fay Foster company, considered both in makeup and equipment to be of the top-notch order, will give two burlel as. The management has personally seen that every need has been furnished and has spared no expense in the way of cos tuming, scenic and electrical effects, which are carried in its entirety by tho company. The company engaged to properly portray the various char acters has been carefully culled from the cream of musical comedy and vau deville stage and are all comedians, singers and dancers of established reputations, and class predominates.— Advertisement. "MY BEST Ulltl." The authors of "My Best Girl," the. musical comedy delight which will be seen at the Majestic Theater Saturday afternoon and evening, with Victor Morlej as its star, have done more than their share toward making the atrical history in America. Channing Pollock and Rennold Wolf are both newspaper and magazine writers who have long been considered dramatic authorities. With all of their works, as with "My Best Girl," there is a consistent story to be told and this Is carried out in the musical numbers as well as in the dialogue.—Advertise ment. "EVERYWOMAN" Henry W. Savage is sending here the tremendous dramatic spectacle, "Everywoman." which created such a furore in New York, Boston, Chicago and other large American cities. It will be disclosed at the Majestic The ater Monday afternoon and evening. There have been, since the first pro duction of this modern morality play, many companies performing it, but this city is fortunate in having, ac cording to Mr. Savage, an opportunity to witness the best all-round organ ization he has ever sponsored. It is the only company playing "Every woman" in America and it contains several of the originators of the vari ous interesting roles. —Advertisement. ORPHBI'M The good things at the Orpheum this week are many. Many as there are attractions, only of course a few are better than the rest. The best is Irene 1' ranklin, who is easily the most clever artist that has appeared at the Or pheum. and who is here again In an entirely new repertoire of songs, equal ly as good as any that she sang here before. And her gowns are simpiv alaborate in the numbers where such wardrobe is appropriate. Some of her character numbers such as her "kid" songs, are clothed to tit the number, but in each instance the song Is pleas ing and "nice." The new songs Miss M-aiiklin is delighting us with this week Include "The Toliee Womsrti," a I suffrage number. In which Miss Frank lin docs a humorous version of a fe male "cop." For It, she dons s white military Milt, a sort of pollcoman's rap, and lo srid behold, her club has a pow der puff and mirror in the end of It You'll want to hear her toll how the womon 3co(T her, and how lenient she Is with hm' hrindsomc male prisoners In this song, like all rhe others.

"All Wrong"" is the title of a fine comedy number that we haven't nenrd before, and "Makes Me Sick" Is th? wsil of the little girl, who must go to bed when her sister has a beau. All her songs are tuneful and Interesting and delivered In Miss Franklin's In imitable manner. And Frank Milton Owes His Life to This Lung Remedy A lingering cough or cold which does not yield to ordinary treatment, should be a warning. Preventive measures should he taken, at once.
