It in a wonderful letter wonderfully egotistical! lie t«*ll.s un that, shortly after Ik- met her, .she met with an accident of some sort; that he paid her hospital hills and took her to the country for convalescence, etc. He doubtless owed her all of that. IJut later in his writing, we are stirred to a profound ad miration when we learn that, knowing of her perfidy, he nevertheless returned several times for reconciliation with her. Profound admiration for one or the other of them. For when one returns to an aban doned project, whether it Ix- a mining claim, a woman, or a book, it is reasonably sure to be because he thinks there is something still in it for him I 1 note how. in telling of the neglect and Indecorous conduct of his wife, this man keeps constantly before the reader's mind that he wan THUH RK > PAID for all his klndnens to the 'woman he *avs ho "fell In hive with." In other words, he tella un that, hav ing married this girl, who was the -plaything of men." he never forgot —or probably let her forget for si minute that she had a I'AST Yet he has the nerve to tell um that he married her after failing In love with her. 1 wl*h to go on record as saying that a love big and fine enough to have com? Mission ate 1 y lifted this girl and put her In a place of honor among her fellows Is a love too big and fine to ever Uiink of being UN PAID. Who has not a past"* Not all of us huve one like the woman this man tells of. Hut there is none of um who began her life with the propCNttJ of marriage from the man whom she now (rails husband. There is a PAST In the live* of every one of us. This girl was the "plaything of men." What men? And do those men have a PABT today? Our friend who Is giving young men advice doe* -not stop to think of the vastly greater good he could do the present genera tion of women (having foiled In his little humanitarian project with one woman with a post) by warning the young men to be careful not to make a PAST for some other girl! ll's a fifty fifty proposition, this matter of PAHTH, etc, I do not bo Hove in a double standard of moral Ity for men and women. If this girl under discussion wss the plaything of men and can be referred to as a woman "with a PAST," then so must you brand every one of those men who had her for their plaything And I'll wager it never occurred to "E." to warn any girls against a single one of tho*e men (with a PAID who Used the girl he married as their plaything. Nope, as a matter of fart, probably most of those men are married snd have women and famiilea. and are even good enough to hold positions on the police force in their home towna X am a woman, yes; and married, yes; and I have a PART 35 years long, and a son. and a daughter. My daughter Is almost old enough to run around to dance halls, and to be the plaything of men (Also to have shrieked In merriment at the shallow* news of argument In "E.'s" letter! Hut I thank the power* that be that | It has been given to roe to have the wisdom and the will to build Into the consciousness of that daughter the knowledge <ft sex and the under standing of her own glorious nature. | So that the open road, the mountain trail, fresh air. a book, wind in the trees, the music of a wnterfall. the j benediction of sunset —these things j have more lure for her than all the dance halls In the world. And. If she becomes the plaything of men. it will be because there Is that perversity in her nature which must find Its nutlet In that way. and NOT because she falls, the dupe to the passions and lusts of men with outtl PASTS. t am sorry that the girl "E" pulled out of the mud and married, did not rise to the standard he set for her. Most of us fall and do not rise again because there Is no one who rare* enough to help us regain our fooling Men who use women as their play things do not In the eyes of the world, "fall." So they do not need to be helped up; they Just k<-ep on trav eling. But. dear flod! your "woman with a past!" Harare! beware! She Is a menace to the man who would help her. A menace to the men who offered, and. In most cases, urged upon her the means of her fall. May I suggest that "E." spend some of his tlm.' advising his son, who has missed the mother love and care that Is the natural inheritance of every child, to so order his life that there will not be more women I with PASTS for good men like his j dad to have to marry in order to save. But, when all's said and done. It Is as well that some great and kindly soul does not come forward with a warning to girls to beware of the man with a PAST. For—(grlnl—lf this advice were given, and followed by the girls. In a few brief years there would not be a married couple on this earth! Well, never mind, "R." Tou made a fixxle of reforming a woman with a PAST, but maybe this young man. 12 years her Junior, will be able to carry your work to a successful con cluslpn- who knows? LADIES - Young and old Remain AWAY FROM "K." UK IS A MAN WITH A PAST." (Signed) "PAST—but PRESENT." To the casual reader, your opinion# seem as sadly over drawn in favor of women as "E.'s" comment on his former wife appears, to you, partial to men.

An ljl expert tells us that wo can be weO V fed at 45 cents a day per person. That Is $13.50 a month, or $40.50 for three.

They were always the fro ior all kinu. She at last noticed she was losing her high school frienda. She tried to stop, but the girls shunned her and she had to have young company, so returned to her would-be com pinions. This might have all been prevented had the parents taken the right sort of Interest In their child.
