It will frequently tell the truth if the hair dye and the cosmetics are omitted. When girls arrive at fryin' size, there's only blueness in ;ne skies, there's only gladness in life' song as its glad moments sweep along; when they don somewhat longer skirts, these little Imogenes and i Myrts, and do their hair up on their I beans, when they are half way I . . . . . through their teens, take it from us. our fellow men, there's something always doing then!

He has to take her to the dance, where youth and gladness and ro mance to music's rhythm dip and swing, and watch that hesitation thing until part of the night has gone and he thinks it is nearing dawn, when as a fact 'tis scarcely ten, so he tells them "Come on," and then, through the perfumed and purple gloam he hikes and drags his daughters home. Then the nxt night he goes again. He has no moments in his den to browse and smoke a pipe or two. because he has the. things to do. And when they do not go away, but one night in their home they stay, he thinks he'll have a little rest and there is peace within his breast, but along about eight o'clock he hears a gentle ring or knock, and opens up the big front door, and frying sizers by the score come trooping in and take the floor, and the glad dance is on once more! And dad must act as chap erone, for mother won't stay up alone. .o now he knows no more of peace, dance music never seems to cease, and all life's resting hours are lost, but girls are worth more than they cost.

When Ambasador Gerard rofused to enter into nego tiations to reaffirm that declaration, under which citizens of both coun tries would be immune from deten tion and all property rights of one nation within the other would be respected, the Orman' foreign office took up the matter through the Spanish ambassador in Berlin and the Swiss minister here.

The' old maxim that toil and hardships have an arfinit for great men has been shattered ly William H. Holly, the principal s-peaker at a meeting of the Women's Trade Union league. As a result labor unionists today are chewing over his assertion that pampered ease is the real developer of illustrious men. "Genius never was the offspring of poverty," said Holly. "Character never was developed by long hours and a meager cupboard. Those who point to the early hardships of Ab raham Lincoln as being responsible for his presence in the white house mipht as well say he was president because of the illiteracy of his father. Lincoln merely arose above all dilficulties because he was a born genius. Luxury and the chance to labor only eight hours a day would have made him even greater.
