Wife Must Stand First In Husband s Heart
(Copyright, 1916, Star Company).
Unless a woman Is utterly devoid of
reason and good sense, It is the
simplest of matters for the man she
loves to make her happy after mar
A little tact, a little self-denial, a
little patience, much consideration,
many small attentions and unfailing
kindness will keep the average woman
as happy as her days are long.
But in spite of the simplicity of the
undertaking the world is filled with
domestic failures; and the discontent
ed and disappointed wives seem to out
number the satisfied ones.
Most men begin married life with
more real love in their hearts than
most women bestow upon their hus
bands. yet, after a few years of domes
tic life it Is the woman who gives and
the man who seems to fall In bestow
ing the proofs of affection which are
so necessary to the happiness of most
The leading desire of a woman's
heart is to feel always, and under all
circumstances, that she Is first in her
husband's thoughts. The next desire
Is to feel that he likes to be with her;
that he enjoys her society, and that
he comes to her Joyfully, and goes
from her regretfully, even as In the
days of courtship.
It Is Just in these two matters that
eo many men fall.
Most decent men give their wives
dutiful attentions. They provide for
their wants, and are anxious to have
them entertained; but too frequently
they are satisfied to provide amuse
ment and entertainment which does
not necessitate their personal partici

his club.
Her unhapplness over this incident
seemed unreasonable to him: yet had
he given her that hour of his un
divided attention and shown pleasure
in having her at his side as the New
Year came in, he could have finished
the night with his club and left no
scarring memory of the heart of the
woman he had chosen from all the
world to be his companion.
It required only a little self-denial
and a little tact to make this one wife
Unless a woman Is obsessed by the
demon of Jealousy, which makes her
incapable of sane reasoning and good
Judgment, she does not object to hav
ing her husband show other women
gracious attention. She is, indeed,
proud of him when other women ad
mire him and find his society agree
able. ,
But in order for any woman to take
this view of life, the man must be
tender and tactful enough to make his
wife feel ALWAYS . that she stands
first in his heart.
He must look In her eyes when she
is talking to him; not past her to gaze
at some other; he must see her when
she enters a room, and come to meet
her; he must not forget her presence
and sit or stand with his back to her
while he entertains some other woman
and he must be as ready and quick to
praise his wife as he is to praise
When a man springs quickly to the
defense of another woman who is
criticised in any manner, and at the
same time Is prone to think his own
wife needs criticism, he must not be
surprised if she exhibits what Is com
monly called "Jealousy."
The tactful man can and will avoid
such situations by keeping his wife
confident of her power to charm and
please him; and whenever he goes
from her presence he will make her
It was at White Post that George
Washington, when a youngster of
seventeen, a brawny lad of huge di
mensions, dug a deep hole and in It
placed a very substantial post. As
he performed this task Lord Fairfax,
his employer, stood by and figured
upon the margin of a map. For the
King of England had granted Lord
Fairfax a great tract of land in this,
the Shenandoah Valley, and the Brit
isher had engaged the young Amer- I
ican to survey it for him.
The post they were planting was to
be a landmark. It was 166 years ago
that this bit of work was performed,
yet that post is still standing. It had
not been planted long when it became
the center of an important crossroads
in the Shenandoah. Greenway Court,
the residence of Lord Fairfax, was a
measured mile to the south of the
post, the line having been run by
young Washington. To the north was
Charles Town near which came to
dwell Samuel and Charles Washing
ton. Winchester came Into being a
little to the west, and the road to tha
east stretched out toward Mount Ver
Lord Fairfax painted this post
white, and standing at the Intersec
tion of roads, it came to be spoken
of as White Post. Soon an inn was
planted at this crossroads and was
known as White Post Inn. It was
solid and of country rock and still
stands. There is hardly a name asso
ciated with all pre-Revolutionary Vir
ginia. the owner of which has not
quenched his thirst at this old tavern.

There are men who treat their wives
as good-hearted boys treat their
mothers when they first develop into
young manhood.
A husband of this type tries to do
this duty by his wife; he looks after
her comforts; he sees that she has
some one to help her pass the time;
he gets theater tickets for her and her
friends, and then he Joyfully hurries
away to find his own pleasures. Just
as the hoy hurries oIT to his comrades
and his girl friends after being sure
that he has neglected no duty toward
his mother.
But while the mother Is satisfied
with this kind of attention the wife
is not not unless she has ceased to
care for her husband other than as a
provider for her physical comforts,
and unless she. too, has other pleas
ures more congenial than her hus
band's society affords.
A woman who possessed every
earthly blessing was envied by her
friends because her husband came to
her directly after business hours with
some plan for her entertainment, and
seemed always solieltlous about having
her enjoy herself with other people.
Yet he found all his pleasures at
the club or in entertainments apart
from her. When she complained to
him that she felt lonely and dissatis
fied with her life, he thought her most
unreasonable and unappreciative of
a good husband.
Did he not do his duty better than
most men of her acquaintance? He
could not understand that a quiet eve
ning at home, where he seemd to be
happy and contented because he was
with her, would have meant more to
her than all the pleasures he pro
vided her apart from him.

make a woman happy (a loving and

Cretonne has become an accepted ma
terial for gowns and for accessories. It
is really very pretty when the colors
are well chosen and this bodice with its
full waistcoat and long sleeves of
organdie is exceedingly attractive. The
colors of the cretonne are simple and by
no means aggressive and upon the choice
of the colors must always depend the
success of the material. As a matter
of course, silk can be substituted or indeed
any preferred material and the silks,
are all good for August, but
nothing more fashionable than this com
bination could be suggested. Later, this
same bodice would be charming made of
cripe or faille silk with the Georgette
crtpe or with a heavier cr6pe or indeed
witn chiffon or net. It is very attractive,
it shows the very newest features
and is very simple to make. Tha
bodice is extended over the shoulders
and the full sleeves are joined to it below
the shoulder line, so there is no fitting
required. The full fronts, are stitched to
the bodice proper to simulate the waist
coat and the closing is made at the front.
If preferred, the sleeves can be made
shorter, but the long ones that fall over
the hands are both pretty and extremely

their purpose. There remains but the
Jelly of cotton.
To this Jelly are added the quantities
of nitrates known to he necessary that
the proportions in the finished pro
duct will be such that every particle
of it will be burned up when the
ponder explodes.
Gun Cotton
In this stage the product is known
as guncotton, a name it acquired be
fore the process of breaking down the
fibrous condition was discovered. Gun
cotton Is a very terrible explosive. It
is the material which makes the mines
that are planted about the harbors of
Europe and so deadly that no vessel
strikes one. It is the material that is
inside the war heads of the torpedoes
that are launched from submarines.
It was a charge of this guncotton.
probably not more than a hundred
pounds of It, that tore the Lusitania
in two and caused her to sink. Eighty
pounds of cotton from Texas and
twenty pounds of saltpeter from Chllo
did the terrible work.
This guncotton Is too powerful for
the purposes served by powder. Ex
ploded In the breech of a gun It would
tear It to pieces. To convert gun
cotton Into gunpowder It Is necessary
that Its explosions should be slowed
down and It is adulterated to accom
plish that end. When the jelly-like
mixture is just right to make modern
smokeless it is squeezed through the
molds and cut off in the lengths de
aired for the final product.
Even In this time when powder is
attempting to dominate the world it
may not he generally known that the
"grains" of modern smokeless may
be as big around as a broom handle
and three inches long. They are of
that size for the big, slxteen-lnch
guns that are to guard the Panama
Canal. A twelve-inch gun uses a
grain the size of your thumb, a six-
Inch gun one as big as a section of
a lead pencil an inch long and so on
Each of these grains of powder has
seven perforations running through it
lengthwise. These perforations are
to regulate the rapidity of its burning.
They give more surface exposure. This
powder burns as would a piece of
paper ignited in its center with the
flame spreading always toward the
outside. The bigger the grains the
longer it will take them to burn up.
This is as It Is intended for the ex
perts want the powder to burn longer
in a big gun than In a small one.
Gunpowder explodes slowly and keeps
pushing the projectile all the way
down the barrel of the gun. Its ex
plosion is most violent just before it
Is all burned up and this gives the
projectile a great push just as It
reaches the end o'f the barrel. The
grains for the big guns are bigger be
cause they must burn longer in push
ing a projectile all the way down a
longer gun barrel.
This smokeless powder has come
Into being since the Spanish-Amer
ican war. It is used by all nations
and is always made of the same raw
materials—cotton and nitrate. In
Europe, however, it assumes different
forms. English powder looks like a
bundle of sticks tied together and
thrust into the breech of a gun. The
French make up their powder In
strips that look like chewing gum.
So. when a great war broke, the
powder-makers of nations were mdst
anxious to keep In touch with the
sources of cotton supply. When the
command of the seas passed Into the
hands of the allies there arose the
great dlfllcvjty on the part of the Ger
mans of mr.lntainlng the supply of cot
ton for powder. America, in the mean
time, had become alarmed over the
closing down of European mills and
the loss of cotton markets. America
did not know of the quantities of cot
i ton' that would be necessary la UM

Rnffland and Cotton
England was anxious to keep cot
ton from her enemies but she was
equally concerned with the necessity of
keeping on friendly terms with the
nation that produced the mass of the
cotton of the world. If she shut down
on cotton to Germany and to those
countries through which it might
reach Germany, might not she so
antagonize the cotton people over here
that they might decline to furnish
her cotton ?
So did England delay in declaring
cotton contraband. While cotton
obviously intended for Germany was
stopped, it has been permitted to go
to Holland and Scandinavia and those
countries have used fifteen times their
normal consumption, much of it
obviously leaking through. Fifty ship
loads, amounting to 160,000 bales, aro
now held subject to the action of
British prize courts. This, however,
will all ultimately be paid for.
Cotton Prices Vp
While cotton dropped to a very low
price early in the war, it soon revived.
E. J. Glenny, president of the New
Orleans Cotton Exchange, believes
that cotton would have gone as low If
there had been no war for 17,000,-
000 bales were produced last year and
this was an unprecedented crop, 4,-
000,000 hales above the average. Mr.
Glenny also holds that attempts to
keep cotton out of Germany did not
hurt the price. While cotton has been
selling for eight cents outside, Ger
many has been offering thirty-four
cents a pound and the bare possibility
of getting cotton through and real
izing these prices has stiffened the
Just now there is a new element
introduced into the cotton situation
that promises to have a favorable ef
fect. Great Britain has declared an
embargo on jute. India produces the
greater part of the jute of the world.
England wants that jute for the manu
facture of bags for the use of her
soldiers in the building of breast
works. She will not allow it exported.
Cotton will have to be used as a sub
stitute. This opens up a possibility
for the use of a million and a half
bales of cotton. The burlap around
bales of cotton has heretofore been
made of jute. It will this season be
made of cotton.

The acreage planted in cotton this
year is 20 per cent, less than it was
last year. The crop this year will
