Same as of Old—Love Affairs That Level All Ranks ROMANCE POPS OUT IN A HARNESS SHOP We’d Reject This Yarn as Absurb in Fiction, But Since It Really Happened, What Are We to Do About It? By WINIFRED BLACK AND she’s married the hamessmaker. Dear! Dear! Just think of that. A plain every-day hamessmaker; not even a chauffeur or a man in a garage. To be sure the hamessmaker is six feet three and has broad shoulders and a deep chest, and he is very, very handsome. Also very active and very strong. And good-humored into the bargain. He laughs easily. He likes to ride; he can swim, and he is a great hiker, and he doesn’t mind driving a good car. He has two or three hundred dollars in the bank and he’s going to buy a nice little house, and he has two Airedales, they say, and an Irish terrier—and the heiress who has married him is crazy about him. Just absolutely crazy. She won’t listen to a word anybody says. She’s married him and gone away with him and she won’t answer telegrams. Why, she won’t even answer the telephone. And as fnr letters—pouf! si/miromniAPK She’s rich* Klin(1 y°u- VeiT rich» indeed. WlnuKiDBIAJv, And young. And she’s a wonderful rider and she belongs to the smartest riding club in New York, and she’s asked to all the Junior League affairs when she’s at home—and everything. She wasn’t very well for a while, and her people sent her to Colorado; and she loved the mountains and the light air, and the clear sky made her feel as if she were in some lovely dream. One day she went to see the hamessmaker to get a harness for her dog, and there he was—six feet three and everything. 1 hey talked about the dogs, and they talked about the harness, •nd they talked about the climate and about the mountains. The next day she went back again, and then after that, she went back again. And after that the hamessmaker took her for a ride, and it was all off. She forgot all about the Junior League and First Nights on Broadway, and smart teas at the Ritz, and all the girl.? she used to know at the modish boarding school. She just couldn’t live another day without the handsome hamessmaker. Dear me! She didn’t even try. And they're married. And they’re happy—and between you and me, what of it? Clever girl, I’ll say. She knew enough to know when she met the man she loved. And when she met him. she knew enough to « mary him, and if that isn't common sense. I’d like to know what is. Ten chances to one she’s a thousand times happier with him than she would have been with some gilded youth who couldn't even put a harness on the right way. Here’s to the hamessmaker and the girl who married him! May they live long and may they be happy! It’s sort of a relief to hear about somebody who does what she really wants to do, and not what somebody else thinks she ought to want to do—isn’t it? OBt<>r!fM. 1*;*. ip*- Fratur* Smtc#. Inc.

One pictures the use of printed lir.en trimming on a heavy silk fabric—very new and interesting—and the other, a cunning trottcur in moire. The latter one of the smartest styles recently displayed, has tre mendous style and dash, achieved partly by a three-quarter cape which need not, however, always be worn with the ensemble. The short jacket and skirt of dark blue moire are trim enough to stand on their own and affect a strikingly smart costume. Two kick pleats conform to the double breasted ar rangement of the jacket which is trimmed with four pearl buttons, small enough to be in good taste. The same button arrangement goes on the cross-piece of the cape. This Spring is making amends to moire for the neglect of recent seasons. Water silks are being em ployed in coats, ensembles and even fur or self-trimmed evening wraps, with the result that the fashionable world is wondering1 where and why moire has been I kept in hiding all these years.

COPELAND, M. D. United Stales Senator from New York. Former Commissioner of Health. Scxc York City. AMONG the letters that come as a result of those articles on health are many that relate to stone in the kidney. These writers want to know what is the chief came. Of course there are many factors. But we cannot overlook the chief cause and that is faulty diet. Let me not he misunderstood. If the body is functioning as it should, if there is no underlvirig disease, if there are no lurking germs in the system, it is not likely gravel will form. At the center of each stone may be the product of germ life. But that fact. too. may go back to wrong eat ing habits. To find out what food may be at fault it is important to find out what chemical substance is found in abnormal quantities in the uiine. There fore, the first, thing to do is to have the urine analyzed to determine if it contains excessive quan tities of pertain salts. Some of these materials are uric acid, oxalates of lime, or phosphates. Your doctor will decide this question for you. These are the substances which form the gravel or stones. If uric acid is found to be formed too freely, your doctor will tell you to cut down on meats, particularly certain parts of the animal, notably sweetbreads, kidney, liver, or brain. All smoked, spiced and highly seasoned food, rich pastry and coffee should be eliminated from the diet. Fats and sugars should be taken in moderation, while vegetables i fruits and milk should be used freely. If oxalates produce the gravel, omit vegetables, except peas and beans. You should not take spinach and rhubarb. Fig*, straw berries, apples and pears may well be omit ted from the diet. When the stone is caused by phosphates, the vegetable diet should ; be decreased and the meat diet may be increased. You will see from what 1 say that the diet depends largely on the na ture of the stone-pi uducing condi tions. Your doctor will advise you about this. Self-medication and strict dietary practices, self deter mined. are unwise and unsafe. Even with careful following of the rules , 1 give you today, you might not be 1 benefited in the least for the reason j that the advice may not apply to ! your particular form of trouble. Con 1 suit your doctor. The Stars Say— For Saturday, May 5. By GENEVIEVE KEMBLE.

ONE of the most prominent of' the Polish composers. Moritz Moszkowskl. was horn in Breslau on August 23rd. 1S54. He was the son of a family of independ ent means, who fostered the boy's genius by careful teaching at home during his early years. Later he was sent to continue his study of music at the Dresden Conservatory and then to the Conservatories of Stern and Kullak in Berlin. In the latter place, he taught for several yea rs. Moszkowskl started as a pianist and his first concert in Berlin met with such success that is was fob lowed by a series of concert tours which firmly established his reputa tion as a virtuoso. I’ntil 1S37 Moszkowskl lived In Berlin, but then moved to Paris, where he turned his attention to composing. It is interesting to note that it was after the domestic trag edy that almost ruined the compo ser's life that his best work was done. He is perhaps. t.est known for his Spanish dances, although he also composed operas and more serious music. . ."szkowski's music was given to tin* world during the time of the transition from the great romantics to the morern impressionists.

STRONG PERSONALITY MAY BE BUILT UP If You Think and Act with the Crowd You'll Be Just Like One of a Flock of Sparrows. By DR. LOUIS E. BISCH WHEN once you have personality you must try to keep it. If you haven’t it you must try to acquire it. One of the greatest deterrents to the development of personality is self-pity. It is surprising how often this pernicious habit has checked the initiative and ambitions even of brilliant men. No matter how hard to bear the “knocks” of the world has been, never pity your self. Self-pity will inevitably sap your vigor and energy until you become a weakling. Another pitfall of personality is “crowd mlndedness,” a readiness to have one’s opinions formed and unconsciously dictated by others. A person with a strong personality carefully weighs and considers what others have to say, but doesn’t permit newspapers, books and friends to do his thinking for him. It is perfectly natural to want to agree with people we like, because it is the easiest and most pleasant way—it is a survival, in fact, of the gregarious instinct—but it is not upon such shifting sands of chance opinion that a stable and forceful personality is built. There are, generally speaking, two types of personality, the pas sive and the active. The passive type is slow-spoken, ruminant, reti cent, unlikely to take the initiative, yet it may hide under this un aggressive exterior, strength and depth of character. Such men, if they can, choose isolated lives, they become quiet scholars, ranchmen, sailors, lighthouse keepers. They avoid cities and crowds. The active type, on the other hand, is gregarious, full of initiative, executive, efficient, possessing much persuasive power and charm of manner. They enjoy swaying and influencing people. Obviously, this is a fortunate kind of personality for one who comes in contact with all kinds of persons, to sell them automobile tires, or to preach to them, or to direct them through the channels of some big business. The active type of personality is the most desirable. The man or woman who has it glories in its very possession. To him life is keen excitement, a thrilling adventure. He is spurred by the consciousness that he is making an impression on others, that he is helping to make the world revolve faster. When you have learned to control yourself, you can control others. Avoid a scattering of interests. Have a planfulness of life. No matter how often circumstances may cause you to swerve from the direct path to your goal, make such side-tracking only temporary and return to your original purpose with more enthusiasm than ever to make good in the direction you desire. In starting any new enterprise, even if it be merely to establish yourself with a new acquaintance whom you want to win, you are in the position of a salesman, and what you are selling is yourself. It is your personality with which you are dressing your front windows. Take care not to display samples of goods which you don’t carry in stock! People do this all the time, and sometimes get away with it. But their success is short-lived. In the long run they meet disaster. To develop a personality keep an up-to-date inventory of yourself and replenish the stores that run low. BlufT and past performances are not to be depended on. You need the habit of self-analysis, of frequent mental stock-taking. You need to clean house often and set your soul in order. When temptation or sudden emergency comes you do not want to find yourself running short on self-control or courage or nerve poise. Fortunate will you be if you have a sufficient supply of th** article to weather that particular crisis! You can and should develop your personality to the fullest possi ble extent. You owe it to yourself, to your family, to your work, and to your community. C.Tvrlsrit. JSH. Kr«unw f»»tur» 8»rrlc#.

Yet hun dreds of women are doing this very thing . . . the proof of which is found any day at any hour by merely glancing at the legs of women pe destrians as they saunter along any avenue in the world. A girl friend of mine has given me ; a method of removing aui>erfluous hair from legs that the most i sensitive skin can stand. She had a most unfortunate experience with depilatories due to her extremely sen sitive skin and her physician finally for lade her to use them again.

I too. shrieked in disapproval. Hut . . . |fs quite all right. My friend explained fur ther. to wit: That, after the legs are shaved, a healing lotion such as glycerin and rose water, or any of the standard1 lotions for healing chapped skin, is applied to the skin and massaged lightly over the area that has been shaved. Following this a dusting powder such as Is used after the Kith, or plain talcum powder.

Now comes the secret . . . for we * all know that shaving, under ordi nary circumstances, promotes a heavier and coarser growth of hair. 1TON THE DAY FOLLOWING THE SHAVING, pat peroxide and ammonia over the legs. Read and I follow these directions carefully or I won’t be responsible for what hap pens’ One (1) teai-poonful of ordinary household ammonia and three (3) teaspoonfuls of peroxide.

When the surface is dry. dust a little talcum over the legs and that is that. The ammonia and peroxide accom plishes two purposes. It bleaches the hairs and tends to devitalire the roots of the hairs so that, as time goes on. the growth is materially decreased. And, after a few months, the hairs cease coining in bristly, so that more time can elapse between the shaving off and peroxide and ammonia applications.
