WHEN FRIENDSHIP FAILS.
Are you prepared to stand by me through
ill.
And in misfortune be my true friend
still?
Or, are you a friend while fair days shine.
While happiness and love and youth are
mine?
Would you believe in me should slander’s
sword
Be the strong weapon 'gainst my simple
word?

they are slow forging bonds of friend

first meeting.
They become
fast friends with
out further ado.
■ : \ 'S: .A- One is seldom or
never seen with
out the other. When they are away
from each other, notes, which might
well be called letters, fly thick and
fast between them. Even the tele
phone is resorted to to keep in touch
with one another almost every hour
of the day.
The winning stranger soon becomes
possessed of the other woman’s inner
most secrets —that she has little or
no hold, perhaps, on her husband’s
heart—or of her longing for children
which have been denied her; that her
relafives-in-law were not pleased over
her marriage with the idol of their
family, openly declaring that lie could
have done better than wed a girl who
was obliged to make her own way in
the World.
The agreeable stranger dines at her
new-I'ound friend’s home almost every
evening of the week. At last she is
invited to come there altogether. From
the outset, the husband uttered a mild
protest against his wife becoming a
friend too quickly with one of whom
she knew so little. Ills better half
thought differently. Womanlike, she
longed for a companion to whom she
could pour out the story of her trou
bles, fancied or real, feeling sure of
sympathy and caresses.
Being thrown constantly in the
stranger’s company, morning, noon and
evening, he finds his prejudice against
her surely but slowly melting. He
feels ashamed within his own heart
that he mistrusted so charming a crea
ture of being insincere in her likings
or intents. But mushroom friendship
which blows hot too quickly cools ns
suddenly. Such wives find that the
attractive stranger whom they have
established in their homes is in real
ity more of a stumbling block to their
happiness than a soothing confidant.
When a stranger becomes possessed
of the secrets a good wife should keep
to herself the wife is in that other
woman’s power. Her husband may
turn to her for her opinion on mat
ters on which he should properly con
sult his wife only. Even the servants
have to be corrected for taking their
orders from her. The wife is sorely
tired. She fears to make a disturb
ance about it, for the woman who
has gradually usurped her place with
her friends in general ‘might divulge
the confidence reposed in her. She
realizes she has been t'o blame in mnk
tng a friend of an entire stranger all
too quickly.
Some friendships are costly. Many
a woman has paid for them with a
loss of peace, happiness and hope. The
woman too ardent of nature should
take heed, remembering that the new
found friend who smiles the sweetest
can also frown the darkest if she
fancies occasion demands it. The
honeyed-tongue can also utter sneer
ing, aye, hitter words that cut to the
heart all the deeper because they are
nttered by one who was thought to be
a friend. Real friends are not knit
together in a day.
NOT THE ONE SHE LIKED.
Must life flow on with laughter and song
While the dumb lips trembling say.
"He was only a friend of the winter,
Only a friend—that was all?”

Idealize many a man who is unworthy
and the really good men are made to
suffer thereby. The man who does not
care for a girl will not make an effort
to please her if it conflicts w}th his
own plans. He is careless of her com
fort, yet, for all that, some girls will
cling to such men, hoping almost
against hope that love must come in
time.
While the man upon whom she has
placed her hopes is still single, a king
among men could not win her. She
is ever contrasting him —and to his
discredit —with the man her heart
yearns for. If the other was witty
even to frivolity, the earnest, solemn
young man will prove irksome to her.
If the first one was a fop, delighting
in arousing her jealousy by staring
with apparent admiration at other
girls and actually flirting before her
face and eyes, she will not appreciate
the honorable man who would not con-

Why does this country tend always

The average woman loves devotedly.
To her, her hero Is a god. His toler
ant glance is worth any other man’s
most considerate devotion. Unless a
man can be the first tenant of a maid
en’s heart, he must take his chances of
after happiness should his persuasion
influence her to wed him.
Even after marriage to a good, true
husband, there are women foolish
enough to sigh over a scapegrace they
have fortunately missed, wondering if
the happiness they are tasting Is real
happiness or if they would have been
more contented had they wed the man
they loved first. A husband finds it
j mighty hard to please that kind of a
j wife.
She would never believe she had es
caped a hard life of it by not getting
the man she liked best. If the old
flame flickers ever so slightly in her
breast the husband finds out at last
that he is wedded to a woman who

COURTING YOUR DAUGHTER.
Love! What a volume in a word, an
ocean in a tear,
A seventh heaven in a glance, a whirl
wind In a sigh.
The lightning in a touch--a millennium
in a moment!
What concentrated Joy, or woe. In bleat
or blighted love!
The happiest time in the lives of
parents seems to be when their chil
dren are young enough to chase but
terflies, play marbles, roll hoops or
fondle dolls. Their trials commence
when daughter grows tall enough to
lengthen her drvsses to her shoetops
and begins to attract the attention of
boys.
With the first call of a young man,
the parents face the situation that
their child will follow the fate of all
womankind —fall in love, be wooed and
marry. When young man falls into
the habit of calling regularly, they
realize that is a forerunner of an
avowal of love and being asked for
daughter’s hand, the youth having al
ready pre-empted her heart.
It is but natural that they should
experience anxiety. The happiness
of their darling’s future, as well as
their own peace of mind, is at stake.
All men during the courtship period
put their best foot forward. If they
have any bad habits, do they make a
frank avowal concerning them? Not a
bit of it. On the contrary, nine men
out of ten hide them so carefully and
so deeply that they are seldom un
earthed.
In small towns and villages, fathers
have the advantage. They have seen
the suitor who comes a-courting grow
from boy to man. They know bis rep
utation, good, fair or had, and can
make a pretty good guess as to what
bis future wili be. They know whether
lie is sober and industrious, keeps
good hours and whether his associates
of both sexes are a credit or a disgrace
to him.
The father of the city girl has many
more difficulties to face. A young
man has so many paths spread out be
fore him that no one can tell how
far he travels on the one or the other.
The girl and her parents are almost
entirely at his mercy regarding his
character. He may have friendships
that no one save himself will ever
know about. He may live one kind
of life in one part of the town and
quite another in the other end of the
City.
It Is no wonder the fathers of daugh
ters Insist upon wintering and sum
mering even the best of young men
ere agreeing to a betrothal. They
know that a good son-in-law is the
greatest blessing a family can gather
unto itself; that a rascal Is the worst
calamity it could be forced to en
dure.
Short Speeches in 1860.
On the third day of the 18G0 con
vention when other business had been
disposed of and nominations were in
order, Mr. Evnrts of New York, in few
er than 30 words presented William H.
Seward for the nomination, the Phila
delphia Telegraph observes. Mr. Judd
of Illinois was equally brief in present-,
ing Abraham Lincoln. The names of
William L. Dayton of New Jersey; of
Simon Cameron of Pennsylvania; of
Salmon P. Chase of Ohio; of Edward
Bates of Missouri, and of* John Mc-
Lean of Ohio were presented, but few
er than two dozen w ords were used in
any instance.
It is not by elaborate and eloquent
nominating speeches that the choice
of presidential candidates is deter
mined. The reasons influencing dele
gates are of a different character. But,
if speeches much be made, a reason
able brevity will make them all the
more effective. Two of the best re
membered nominating speeches ever
made in a national convention were
hv Robert G. Ingersoll for Blaiue in
ISTG and by Daniel Dougherty nom
inating Hancock in ISBo—one a Re
publican, the other a Democrat—and
neither speech occupied more than
j ten minutes in delivery.
The Pirate.
The late George W. Peck, creator of
“Peck’s Bad Boy,” was once con
demning the unjust American copy
right law. “They get a bad name,” he
said, “these publishers who steal for
eigners’ writings. A publisher took
me home to dinner at Ills flat the other
evening. In the library the children
were making a furious racket. ‘What
are you doing?’ the publisher asked.
‘We’re playing pirates,’ said the oldest
boy. ‘Pirates?’ said I. ‘But there’s
no sea here. How can you be pirates
without a sea?’ ‘Oh, we don’t need
any sea,’ said the boy. ‘We’re library
pirates, like you. pa, ain’t we?’ ”

VEILS FIND FAVOR
WILL BE SEEN IN PROFUSION AT
SUMMER RESORTS.
Many Novelties Are Offered For the
Delight of Fair Women—lllustra
tion Shows One of Those
Best Liked.
Veils of all sorts will play an impor
tant role this summer at the fashion
able seaside resorts. For example,
the long floating veil which is thrown
completely over a wide-brimmed hat
and then turned back in front, jeweled
pins being used to hold it in place. Or
the quaint little flounce veil, which is
attached to the brim of a close-fitting
turban and which reaches only to the
tip of the nose.
I have illustrated one of the latest
summer veils. This smart veil is
made of bronze tulle traced over with
silver threads, writes Idalia de Vil
liers, Paris correspondent of the Bos
ton Globe. Both Paquin and Lewis
are making these, which come under
heading “picturesque.” The model
was created by Georgette and the
charming little toque was made of
raspberry-pink taffeta, with picot rib
bon in the same color circling the
crown and tied in a large bow in
front. The veil, which was very large
and fragile, was made of dull blue
shadow’ lace.
It was thrown over the crown of
the toque and allowed to fall careless
ly over the left shoulder. Veils of
this order are effective when made of
fine shadow lace in such colors as Chi
nese blue, heliotrope, myrtle green,

Pink Taffeta Over Which is Thrown
a Long Dull Blue Veil.
bronze or pearl gray. In some cases
the edge of the veil is worked over in
picot stitch, with gold or silver
threads.
The latest hatpin has a mushroom
head covered with multicolored bead
embroidery. The Parisian milliners
have brought bead embroidery to a
high state of perfection; indeed, many
of the bead trimmings seen on the new
hats and toques are beautiful enough
to deserve a place in the glass case of
a museum.
The mushroom-head pins have outer
rims of line paste, and they are so dec
orative in themselves that no other
trimming is needed.
Very large sailor hats covered with
crepe de chine and lined with fine
straw will be popular at Biarritz in
the months of August and September.
And it is said that the “clou” of the
plage seasou will be the tricot “sweat
er” richly embroidered with metallic
threads and lined with printed silk.
The Parisiennes have gone quite mad
on the subject of sweater coats.
These bright-colored sweaters look
charming over white linen or muslin
dresses. And it must be admitted that
a well-cut sweater is exceedingly be
coming to the average figure. For

however, he severely plain.
Put Life Into Living Room.
We spent weeks and weeks after
we had got our new home on paper
in planning the color scheme and the
wall decorations, and in deciding just
how w< could make our old furniture
fit into its new environment, remarks
a writer in the Houston Post. We had
started out ten years before with mis
sion furniture—it is so satisfactory in
a living room when there are growing
children—and so we shut our eyes to
the delight of the colonial mahogany
and white paint, and built our room
around the old things.
We had the woodwork stained dark
brown and a brown paper with a light
er brown figure in it put on the walls.
The fact curtains were cream scrim
and the overhangings were brown
casement cloth.
There were three windows at each
end of the room and a French window
opened on the porch at each side of
the fireplace. So the room was very
light, but somehow when we got this
far we we**e disappointed—it wasn’t
the cheerful, cozy room we had
planned.
After studying the problem for
some time we decided that it w T as too
heavy looking, and so much brown was
monotonous. It lacked living color.

chintz for hangings instead of the
plain brown. But as we hadn't

Goes With Summer Frock.
Have you noticed that everybody
carries a bag? Of course, you have, if
you keep your eyes open. For the bag
is one of the earmarks of the summer
frock.
Not the ordinary handbag is this bag
of 1916. No, indeed. It is anew sort
of bag with a very quaint and time
worn element in its make-up. For it
is a bag modeled on the chatelaine
bags worn by medieval ladies, a bag
modeled on the little puffs of silk and
velvet that hung from the high waist
line of Napoleonic beauties.
Very often the bag is of the same
material as the frock. There is the
taffeta frock, for instance, with the lit
tle shirred taffeta bag on drawstrings
of ribbon. There is the frock of stripes
in Palm Beach cloth or linen, with
matching bag of striped material.
There are parasol and bag sets, too.
Some of them are of cretonne, and
sometimes there are sets of bag, skirt
and hat of cretonne, and sometimes
there are sets of hat and bag. These
are for beach or mountain wfear.
bringing the rooms to life witn the
remaining furnishings.
We bought two wide wicker chairs
and cushioned them with cretonne in
which there were old blues, gold and
orange, with touches of black and
white. We bought a tail wicker floor
lamp—there is nothing that softens
a room like wicker —and I put a lin
ing of the cretonne under the shade.
I made orange shades for the side fix
tures and bought two or three pieces
of the bright painted tin that is in
vogue just now, one a gorgeous yel
low watering pot for the flower stand.
Evening Gowns for Summer.
In the selection of evening gowns
for summer it is not easy to find a
fabric which will look cool and at
tractive and at the same time be
firm enougli to stand the wear and
tear of summer activities.
Embroidered linens, tulles and chif
fons are all right if one can afford
them, hut they are very destructible,
and if they cannot be used, the choice
is limited. Some of the sillc and cot
ton fabrics have proved very desira
ble, having much the same appear
ance as silk, but selling for a much
lower price. Chiffon, silk and cotton
chiffon, crepe de chine and silk and
cotton crepe de chine, the two mar
quisettes and voile show the differ
ence in price rather than in appear
ance. So if one feels unable to pay
$2 a yard for material, she may buy
her gown for a quarter of that price.
The dress will be more durable and
almost as effective.
The chief feature of summer gowns
this year is to be ribbons in loops,
bows, bands and ruffles. These add
color and a look of quality to mod
erate-priced material, and there is no
country where ribbon may be bought
more cheaply and in such variety as
in the United States.
Adapt Fashion to Person.
Suppose you have wide, awkward
hips. Will you he so foolish as to
adopt the pannier skirt and give your
self the appearance of awkwardness
the extra fullness is bound to pro
duce? Or, if you are five feet ten, will
you wear your skirts so many inches
above your hoot tops that you will of
necessity appear absurd—like a lamp
post iu a ruffle?
Not in appearing conspicuously dif
ferent or overemphasized lies the
charm of dress. Not in following the
mode so slavishly that you look like a
replica of everybody else you meet,
lies any of beauty; but in so adapting
current fashions that they seem to be
long to you rather than you to them.
So, too, for hats. A tiny little tur
ban pulled down over small and ex
pressionless eyes and topping a long,
ill-shaped nose only accents the lack
of beauty of the features below it.
While a large, graceful hat may throw
kindly shadows over a tired or hollow
face.
Don’t buy a hat because it is smart
or the fancy of the moment, or be
cause someone you know looks well in
that model. Try on hats with an hon
est eye to yourself as an individual. —

Costume Jewelry.
The latest development of costume
jewelry is the bracelet and hair band
to match. Some of the newest eve
ning gowns have long, floating angel
sleeves, caught to the wrist by bangles
of gem-studded filigree gold of the
same design as the circlet worn
around the head.

The model of the evening coat is very
full and in kimona style with very
wide 6leeves that are draped a little
above the wrist. The bottom of the
coat if made of velvet, embroidered
in Chinese fashion and has a sweer

are of skunk fur.
The bag influences reaches pockets.
For the newest sort of pocket is very
suggestive of a bag. The pocket is big
and the top of it is shirred, bag fash

These shirred pockets are used
sometimes or smocks and the shirred
top is smocked to match the rest of
the smocking.
A striking coat shows the bag influ
ence in its pockets, but in a different
way. The two big pockets hang from
the shoulder by two straps, one fas
tened at the shoulder and the other
fastened at the shoulder on the back.
The pockets hang free from the skirt
of the coat, suggestive of the tourist’s
