Happy Marriages Just Seem to Run in Some Families WHA T CAN BE WRONG WITH THESE GIRLS? Winifred Black Analyzes Two Groups, But Her A isdom Stops Short of Finding an Answer to the Riddle. By WINIFRED BLACK T^*> 0 sisters—they live in the same town. And in the same street—and in the same kind of a house. They’re both widows. One has four daughters and the “Kher has five. The woman with the four daughters has a grand time. Three of her daughters are married—one married a lawyer, one married a business man and one married an office manager of sorts. One of the girls has a really beautiful home, one has a mce comfy home and the other lives in a really smart apartment The fourth girl in that family is still at home—but she has four suitors, two young fellows without an ounce of brains, one middle aged man of unusual intelligence, and one sort of medium man. I think she’s in love with one of the young fellows. I wonder if she’ll marry him? If she does she’ll be happy with him and she’ll make him happy with her. It runs in the family to marry well and to marry happily. Sister is different—sister and her daugn WINIFRED BLACK tcrs~ * . . .. „ Sister’s daughters are all grown up and all good-looking, and they’re almost dying of jealousy because their cousins all married so well and so early and didn’t seem to make any work of it at all. They have beaux, too, plenty of them, dancing beaux apd motor car beaux and road house beaux—but there never seems to be any wedding rings in the pockets of any of these gentlemen. Mother’s worried about it. She pretends she isn’t, she does all the modern stuff about “independence” and that sort of thing, but every time she hears something new about one of her nieces and her comfortable devoted husband, she looks as if she had just tasted a lemon. What’s the matter with her and her daughters, do you suppose? Want to stay single? Now, don’t tell me! Girls of eighteen or twenty-two or three may want to be single »nd there’s a woman now and then who really wouldn’t marry the Prince of Mesopotamia or the Duke of Allclothes if she had the chance, but the average girl wants a husband and a home of her own, whether she wants to stay in it or not. Maybe these girls work too hard at being “attractive.” They talk rather loud and dress rather too gayly, *and they smoke a lot and they’re not at all particular about the sort of stories they tell. Good girls, too, they are—oh, well, what’s the use? There’s something mysterious about this whole business of marrying and giving in marriage.

Home-Making Helps By Wanda Barton. Helpful Aids to Housework. KITCHEN conveniences f o t Summer use are often for gotten until the need arises For instance, one would be lost with out the wire baii-shaped lettuce or berry washer. Fresh lettuce from the garden needs thorough washing to free it from sand. After trimming and pulling apart, the washer may be filled with the leaves and plated under running water. Twist and turn the washer and it will clean perfectly. Then the lettuce may be put into a cheesecloth baa on thr ice to chill. Berries may be put in the washer and turned 1n every way until they are freed from sand, then they may be hulled and set to chill. Now we have the electric egg beater or cream whip. Plug in and the whtrlwind mechanism will do the work in a quarter the time allowed under old methods. The beater is not of complicated make so it does not take skilled labor to run it. For those who are tired of sliding and slipping about over the‘woven bathroom rugs the gift of a sponge rubber mat will be a.n acceptable one. These mats ding closely to the tiled floor, are easy and pleasant to walk on and may be had in five or six colors with attractive mosaic de signs. The mat is first cousin to the long narrow mat that goes In the bottom of the tub to prevent the un wary bather from slipping. The bathtub seat that fits over the sides is also a comfort in hot weather for a sitting shower. To get back to the kitchen we re member with pleasure our cold cylinder glass Jugs with nickeled tops and side handles with the slender ice cylinder suspended in the center. No ice comes in direct con tact with the liquid within but it is chilled by the cracked ice contained in the cylinder.

By Marie Marot ^TENNIS frocks and accessories are receiving reawakened at tention. There are many cute models of sleeveless tennis dresses, piped in self material* and perfectly plain except perhaps for a neat pearl buckle appearing on the belt. Others are more fussy, elabora tion being achieved by tucked de signs and insets- Many have box pleats on just the front of the skirt while others feature accor dion pleating all the way round There are numerous jackets be ing made to combine with these dresses. Some are in sheer wool and angora, banded in silk, and others employing brilliantly striped flannels, made blazer fashion. Still others combine flannel and cre tonne. With very few exceptions, the ones seen so far are decidedly attractive and chic. Combined with the costume sketched to the right, is seen one of the new “ring-scarfs.’* It is of blue and white silk—the ends of which slip through a blue ring. These rings can be slipped up and down the scarf to hold it in place as desired, or will serve to tighten the scarf about one’s wrist if it is to be carried. Tennis socks are a few items. They come in beige, gray and white sheer wool, and are to be worn rolled over the stocking at the ar.kle. An innovation occurs iu tennis hats in the new “Lenglen-Wills” headgear.

Terrors of Tuberculosis Being Dispelled By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D. United States Senator from New York. Former Commissioner oj Health, yew York City. TUBERCULOSIS has been named the “great white plague.” One-tenth of all the deaths in the United States are due to tuberculosis. To say nothing of the broken hearts, the annual economic loss from this cause has been estimated at a billion dollars The presence in the body of the germ of tuberculosis is not always followed by the dis ease tuberculosis. There enters into the matter another factor, and that is the resistance of the individual. Autopsies performed on a very large number of persons who died of diseases other than tuber culosis, chow evidence of the disease in more than 90 per cent, one observer says in 98 per rent of all cases. We now believe that in one form or another most persons are infected at some time during their existence, usually early in life. OP COPtLANO Fortunately, the majority of those infected with tuberculosis have within themselves the power to resist the disease. But if this resistance is broken down the germ becomes active and the patient yields to the disease. That is the reason why it is sen important for us to guard the health if we wish lo avoid this terrible af fliction. That ta why poverty, poor food, had housing, overwork, worry, intemperance and dissipation pave the way for the disease. All there things lessen the resistance of the individual, allowing the ever-present germs to become active. Tuberculosis usually attacks per sons in early adult life. Its mortality is greatest between the ages of 25 and *5. In other words, when the individual should be of the greatest use to the world and when he has the largest number of dependents, that is the very time he yield* to this dreadful disease. Tuberculosis i« both preventable and curable. We can guard our selves from tuberculosis by main taining good health which increases our natural Immunity. We can guard against Infection by avoiding contact with persons having the dis ease and who are careless in expos ing others. There is no specific ettr* for tuber culosis.

Giovanni battisti viotti< was the son of a blacksmlth.l He was born tn Fontaneto (la Po. Vercallt. Italy on May 23. 1753. Hi* father, who played the horn, taught tha boy the rudiments of violin playing and so apt was he. that he attracted the attention of, the Bishop of Stramblno, who| brought the boy to the attention of the Prince della Ciaterna. In 1766 tha Prince placed him under the tuition of the violinist Pugnant at Turin, where Viotti became violinist tn the court chapel. In 1780 Pugnant made, a tour to Germany, Russia and Poland, taking Viotti with him. Viotti had already made quite a name for himself as a violinist, and in Russia attracted the attention of the empress Catherine II. who honored him with extra* ordinary flavor. In 1782 he went with Pugnanl to London where he at once established himself In the favor of the public. In Parle his success was greater m en than it had been In London and he was universally acknowledged as unrivalled. A concert which he gave in Paris in 1783 being poorly attended, and a rival mediocre violinist winning the plaudits of the public, Viotti abruptly closed bis personal appearances and demoted himself to teaching and com* posing. Tha Prince de Soubise ap pointed Viotti leader of his private orchestra and In 1788 Viotti joined Leonard; Queen Marie Antoinette’s hairdresser, in establishing an Italian opera at the Tullenes. This opera _Copyright. 192*. Fra tun Strtioo. Ice. ► was later transferred to the Theatre de !a Poire St. Germain in 1790 and was finally merged with the Theatre Feydeau in 1791. The Revolution In 1791 compelled Viottl to go to London, where he gave a series of successful concerts. Coming under suspicion as an agent of the Revolutionaries, he was com pelled to leave England and go to Germany, where he stayed In retire ment until 1794 when be returned to England. Success ssemlng to elude him. he gave up Ma musical career and embarked in the wine trade. On a visit to Paris m 1802 Viottl was persuaded to give a concert be fore Cherubini and others and as tonishsd them by outrivalling hia earlier performances. It is probable that Viotti returned to London and remained there until about 1819. In this year, however, he was appointed Director of the Opera In Paris, which post he held until 1822 when he retired on a pension. Viotti’s influence as a teacher and player, especially through ths efforts of one of his pupil’s, Rode, gained for him the sobriquet of “The father of modern violin playing." Viotti’s compositions are classics of violin-lltarature. He was the first to writs vidlin concertos in the mod em sonata form, which also display's ths full resources of the orchestra. His playing was marked by purity of style, magnificent tone end poetic expression. Viottl returned to London after being pensioned In Paris and died there on March 3rd (or 10th) 1824. PRIMITIVE IMPULSES CAUSE NERVOUSNESS Repressed Desires, Struggling for Expression or Gratification, May Bring on Some of Our Physical Ills. By DR. LOUIS E. BISCH. Eminent Pai/chologiet. MAS, at bottom, b a very primitive animal. One can really look upon the civilized human being of today as a curbed, checked and inhibited savage. Powerful instincts push the individual through life and keep him going. The gratification of hunger and thirst, the urge for emotional expression, the im pulse to avoid injury and death, the desire to stand well with our neighbors, to mount to suc cessive levels of achievement and success—these are the energizing factors of life. Yet the cravings are constantly being thwarted by the codes and conventions of the world we live in. For example, a man must satisfy his nutrition urge, or he will starve to death. He must first earn mdhey enough to buy the food. But suppose he cannot earn enough to buy the quality of food and service he prefers? Sup pose he craves delicate dishes, cooked by an expert chef? Then there is nothing left for this individual to do—if he cannot pay for all these luxuries—but repress these over-refined yearn ings and to force himself to eat a sufficient i-OUiS E BiSCn amount of coarser food in order to sustain life. These repressions, these longings which are pushed away into the unconscious mind, never entirely fade out. If they remain strong enough, they will try again and again to reassert themselves. ..i 11111 - ■ - - - — -.— s Advice to Girls By Annie Laurie Dear annhd laxjrie-. 1 am 30, six feet tall, have blue eyes and dark cbestnut hair, am fond of amusements of all kinds, with the exception of dances.

This may take the form of nervous dyspepsia, ss a sort of defense re action. The individual, compelled to fore go the delicacies he cannot afford, develops all sorts of uncomfortable digestive symptoms, which lead him to refuse the wholesome food he can afford, on the ground that bis stomach Is seriously out of order, and that It cannot digest this or that Item of his simple menu.

Love’s Awakening T%ZZ,%ZZ * -By Adele Karrisnn Madge Sees Philip Ver it zen’s Hand in a Delicate Situation. I STARED mt my mother-in-law* tn delighted surprise as she calmly told ms that ahs and my father had planned every detail about taking care of Junior while I should be at work In the city. It was such a relief to find this particu lar phase of my problem already settled so satisfactorily, that for a moment I had not words In which to express my astonished appreciation But I knew that I must find words, and that speedily. My mother-in-law does not In the least resemble the modest violet—she is far more akin to the hollyhock, and she likes to make sure that she re ceives full credit; for her frequent kin llv impulses. With an excited little laugh—the only comment I was able to make in that first moment of surprise. I leaned forward in my chair, and looked steadily at her. "How perfectly astonishing—and wonderful!" I exclaimed at last, and my father flashed a half mirthful but wholly comprehending and ap proving smile at me. “You must possess clairvoyance!" “No. only common sense." my mother-in-law retorted, patently en joying herself. "It’s always been one of rny principle# that a person having a job should stick to it until it's done. I don't mind telling you that you’ve succeeded in yours be yond any expectations of mine—Mr. Veritzen was telling me only the other day that he never had seen any one who brought so rare a combina tion of quickness of perception, sure ness of judgment and resourceful neat to a task as you did. I’m quot ing him exactly and of course I made allowance for that hlgh-falut in’ language of his—the man can t talk unless he imagines he's on s stage acting a part and rolling out fine speeches. But I coiilQ see that he thought the world of—your work.” Dlcky’a mother stopped abruptly after the two words following her significant pause and looked at me steadily with her gray eyes, still keen despite her years. But I gave no Inkling that I had caught any other possible meaning than the one she had uttered aloud. My father's quick frown as speedily banished, told me that he had noticed her hesitation and shared my wonder as to whether it was an intentional slip, designed to test my reaction to my employer's praise. “He was worried over two things when he last talked to me." my mother-in-law went on. "first that] ► you might break down, and second, that some one of the family might get 111 and need you. He said that was the only trouble with you. that you had a divided allegiance. 1 told him that you were strong as an ox, and that if any of tha rest of the family got sick it was & pity that somebody els® besides you couldn't take charge of things, especially as we've got the best trained nurse in the world right in the family. He felt better after that, especially when I told him that I'd sea you kept on your Job. But when Richard Second fell out of that tree. I felt for a little while as if It were a judgment on me for promising Mr. Verltxen that.” Oh! clever, clever Philip Verltxen! Unerringly he had chosen for his blandishments the one person who could help or hinder him In his pur pose ot making more secure the tiea which bound me to my contract of work with him. And Mother Graham had slipped Into the spider's web as confidingly as ever did the most naive fly. • But. of course, now that we’re sure the boy is no worse for the shock, and it’s only a question of his being kept out here. I’m ail over that foolish feeling. So I asked your father if he'd give me house room this Winter.
