A LITTLE friend of mine had three
jCM dolls at Christmas. Two were of
the old fashioned type. They had
flaxen hair, absolutely tegular features
and staring blue eyes. They wore fussy,
unreal clothes. They were the kind of
creation that has given the adjective "doll
face" to a regular, pudgy, meaningless
The other doll was the new type, a
dear funny Hi tie creature with a face as
near /iJpe that of a human child as the artist could make it. ohe was dressed
in a little gingham dress such as a child would naturally wear, and she Wasn't
a bit pretty, but she was just as cute and human as you can imagine. And,
although my little friend admired her two doll faced dolls, it Was easy to see
that she loved the homely human dolly the best.
Undoubtedly you must have seen this new type of doll which is so tre
mendously popular this year. And didn't it make you wish you were the doll
age again, so that you might have one? That's the way it affected me.
And now perhaps you'd like to fcnon? why I'm writing at such length
a doll. I'll tell you. Because it seems to me that the popularity of this
new type of doll is a manifestation of one of the most interesting tendencies of
the present age — the tendency toward humanness.
Who is the most popular actress on the American stage today? Ask that
question of five people and at least three of them would speak a single name —
Maude Adams. Why is she so universally popular? Is she so beautiful, such
a wonderful emotional actress? No, she isn't beautiful at all, at least not in
the old acceptation of that word. Nor is she a wonderful emotional actress,
at least not in the way the older favorites were. Maude Adams' popularity is
founded on her humanness. Her plays and her ways are simple, natural, human.
She does what you or I would do under similar circumstances. And box office
receipts show that most of us Really enjoy seeing an actress acting like a human
being instead of like an actress. %
In the world of books the simple human tale is more common and more
popular today than the wild tale of romance and adventure that was the favor
ite a generation ago. Could anything be more simple and unexciting than one
of Mary Stewart Cutting's stories of middle class people in everyday situations?
And yd they are very popular. Why? Because they are human and that*
what people want nowadays.
Looh about you and you will see other ways in whith this tendency is
manifested. We have less and less use for the artificial, the strained and un
natural, and more and more appreciation of the simple, the real, the human.
Is it to be a lasting condition or just a swing of the pendulum? 1 wonder.

"Despite the open winter In the east, travel

year. We were much surprised at the great

open weather in the east. I ha.l a letter re
cently from a friend In Florida, the owner of a
large winter resort. He told me that California
is a very strong competitor ■with Florida and
that he believed that travel to this state would
greatly increase year by year. My Florida

lighter this year than any year before. Hβ at

tised state in the anion. We have everything
here to attract visitors, and I believe we have
a great future in store for us."

6 o'clock tonight to make Its ffrst
"bivouac , "of its 250 miles march to
Washing-ton to carry a message to
Woodrow Wilson on the day of his In
auguration as president.
From town to town as the first day
of arduous tramping wore on, hikers
in tens and twenties unostentatiously
left the ranks and sought warmth in
doorways. Later they confessed them

hovering around the zero mark iHid the
women arrived here with their noses
and ears red and tingling.
The remaining 16. commanded by
"General" Rosalie G. Jones*, are the
'regulars" who pledged themselves to
march the entire distance. The other
184 had volunteered for one day's
march, but did not count on the cold
weather, proffering their promises
when the mercury stood many degrees
higher than it did today.
The 16 miles were made in more
than five hours of actual marching.
Headed by a platoon of mounted police
and two volunteer men buglers, the de
parture from Newark was made after
"General" Jones had delivered a speech
announcing that they carried a secret ;
message to the new president of the
United States, to be delivered to him as
soon as he would receive it—"we hope

The first stop was at Elizabeth. N. X,
a five mile march, which was accom
plished in an hour and a half. There
it was found that the "army's" strength
had dwindled to 60 when the women
eat down to lunch at the clubhouse of
a fraternal organization.
Resuming the "hike" at 2 o'clock. It
was discovered that 30 more marchers
had decided to return to their homes.

She has been working on the book

For the last six or eight years Mrs.

Mr. Van Vert smoothed his , gray
troatee and looked at his sister soberly.
"I am called away, Lucia; I've grot to
go south for a week, and I am going
to put lAvery into your very capable
hands. I want you to see that nothing:
comes to a head. There are (our or
five young fellows about this city that
would run off with her bodily, I do
believe. She would be willing to fall
in love with them for the fun of it. So
keep a good eye out for her. I want
her to meet none of them. Hold on,
there's young Gregory at Branum's. I
will think about it, and if I decide to
give him open sesame I'll let you
Miss Lucia set her lips. "I shall
take care of the witch. She will be
further away from an engagement than
she is now when you get back, Van."
"Good! I don't want to be a crank
about it, you know, but I don't want
some of these chaps that I do not re
spect to bob up. I told young Gregory
to stay away, and he's obeyed; that's
why I think I may lift the embargo on
him until I am back. Anyway, don't
let a chap in unless he has my per
mission in writing."
A very, dark haired, dark eyed and
with the light of witchery gleaming in
her eyes, came into the room to bid
her father goodby.
"Father, I'm going to have a glorious
time when you're gone!" she said. "Oh.
I'll lead Auntie a dance!"
"My dear, I danced you on my knee
once —so look out." Miss Lucia said.
"Yea, child, be good," her father
Avery laughed. "I shall do as I'm
told," she answered.
Her father looked at her and shook
bis head.
The news- evidently worked out and
around Avery's devoted circle of suit
ore about evening time, for there was
a succession of telephone calls, all of
which readied Miss Lucia first and all
of which were soon ended with the in
formation that Avery was to rest dur
ing her father's absence and not take
up her social engagements until his
A maid came into Miss Lucia's room
bearing a card and smiling a little.
"Miss Lucia, there is a gentleman at
the door who would like to see Miss
Avery. but wishes to see you first."
Mise Lucia took the card and read,
"Sidney Langdon." She knew no one
of that name, but the engraving of
the card was artistic work and costly,
and she decided she would go down
and meet him.
Mies Lucia went into the reception
room, her head up, and encased in her
most freezing manner. A tall, clean
faced, rather handsome man with smil
ing eyes rose to meet her.
After the first few formal words he
explained his errand; "Mise Lucia, my
father was a great #riend of Mr. Van
Vert when he was in the south. I had
just come to the city by steamer and
met him as he was going out. I told
him who I was, and, in fact* he rec
ognized me. He was in a great hurry,
and gave me this slip of paper, on
which he scribbled all he had time to."
The young fellow removed from a
■eal wallet, with great care, a slip of
paper and handed it to Miss Lucia.
She took it with cold hand, but with
a weakening inside. She had been ex
amining the caller and decided he was
one of the handsomest young men she
had ever seen; but she had her duty
to perform and ahe was going to do it.
The paper she recognized as the kind
used by her brother in hla personal
notebook. On the slip wae scribbled:
"This is Sidney Langdon. Please take
him in. Van Vert."
She studied it a moment, deciding
what to do. It was written plainly
enough, however. She was removed
from any responsibility by the note.
"How long are you going to be In
the city?" Mie* Lucia asked.
"I hardly know," h« wwwered frank-
spent some time gaining "atmosphere"
from each.
Her book, which will consist of about
200 pagee, will be quaintly and pic
turesquely bound, profusely illustrated
and with wide margins for the pages,
which will be further adorned with
thumbnail sketches of the flowers and
animals of the country.
Mrs. Mcßoskey has published a book,
"Drift o' Dreams," In which appears a
brief sketch of the padres' work In
California, together with a collection
of poems and other bits.

of San Mateo and is also a member of

and paused, for upstairs just over them
was the sound of something falling to
the floor. She knew it was Avery, mak

Lucia covered the noise with a re
mark, hesitated a little as to what she
had better do and called up the wide
stairs: "Avery, your father has sent us

In the days that followed Langdon
became a regular and persistent vis
itor. Miss Lucia knew at the moment
of their meeting it was to be a case of
love at first sight; and she was not sur
prised when the confession came from
Avery that he had asked her and she
had consented to be his own.
Lucia was pleased, for she had
learned to like the young fellow; but
she feared her brother.
Fate brought him in an hour after
the confession, and Avery told him.
Van Vert cast down his cane, and
stormed. "Lucia, what does this
mean? I had confidence in you "
"But you seht a note!" his sister
cried, half fainting. She explained the

I scribbled that note; but I intended
it for Moss, at the office. I told, or
thought I did, the fellow to take It to
Moss, and he would see that things
were done right; but here he marches
up here!"
Langdon came into the room. "Mr.
Van Vert, I understood what that slip
was for; I made myself known at the
office, and wae treated well. I didn't
think of the note, to be frank, until I
learned from Gregory there, how you
had left things and —about Avery. I
had heard father speak of her, and I
made up my mind to see her; when I
saw her. I made up my mind to win her
