Are babies bred under the laws of eugenics—the scientific breed ing of the human race —success- ful? Mrs. J. Borden Harriman, fa mous Now York society woman and charity worker, says "yes— decidedly yes." She comes to her conclusion because of the results achieved by the New York milk committee, of which she is presi dent. "Eugenic babies are far hardier than the ordinary kind, we have found in our work among the. babies," says Mrs. Harriman. The death rate among them is far lower. "The effort to protect the half million quarts of milk consumed daily by babies in New York city under 5 years old led, last year, A LETTER TO A DISSATISFIED BRIDE VT^/7-7^- <$P>7hy (9^r^^f^^//^7^hhf^ My dear Eleanor— I am not at all surprised that you write to me in your quan dary. Was not "Cousin Winnie" on hand, and under foot, at your wedding—here, there anid every where the occasion required? So If I had all the pleasure a rela tive could have on that happy day, why should I not share the aftermath? For, so far as I can see, my dear, there Is ALWAYS that. N Your Bhort marriage experience appears an extreme case to you. To me it sounds familiar, an oft told married tale —it baa come in my way to know so much about married Hfe. Then, the fact that I have made ducks and drakes of my own has, naturally, taught me something. It is hard to make anybody profit by one's own schooling in life, but I wish you could be made to see what any older woman can show you. Your tiusband must not be blamed for an institution he did not establish. You seem to have forgotten, as well, that you mar ried "for worse" as much as "for better." You married the fellow you s«id you could not live with out. Now, I never looked upon your prospecltve husband nor your prospects as ideal, but neither did I regard his happiness as assured nor you yourself as a piece of perfection! True, you have the freshness of youth and a pretty face.~Never thelesa no more sense than most to a systematic campaign of pre natal Instruction and care in the most congested districts. "Six districts were selected, a nurse placed in charge of each and milk stations established. Expectant mothers from the tene ments registered as early as possi ble, learned how to put them selves in good condition, how to keep in Rood condition, what foods to eat, what to avoid, what work to do and what work not to do. All this we called practical eugenica "This campaign reduced the in fant mortality from 125 to the thousand to 103! Think of It! "It is claimed that work of thla sort—in fact all baby-saving work —is Interfering with nature's plan of the survival of the fittest; that by keeping these babiea alive we are helping to produce an in- of your social set can boast, save that you have never been "talked about".

The happiest married Hfe comes from a selection of faults on the start, rather tlian from a choice of ideals, with the great expectations that go with the latter. ielieve me, before Richard proposed to you he decided that your shortcomings did not chafe him as did those of other girls— HE was never blind to THEM for a minute after the first falling ln-love. I have reason to think he It simply an average man in a world of DECENT men; in no particu lar BELOW the average. Yet you speak and act as if he has changed—at least your letters do. Now, as a matter of flact his character was fairly well estab lished before ever you met him. And you had tlma to "realize" him.

We all hare our different expe riences In love, according to our temperaments. About two years ago, I met a young lady anil slowly but as surely as I In' Mill rises I loved her. We were engaged a littlo over a year, but her mother and I Just could not get along, and the girl finally threw me down. It has been nearly a year since I have seen or heard from her, yet it seems I can - not forget her. Now, the big question that Is always on ■my mind is, should I blame her for not staying with me on account of her mother's trouble and mine, or should I not? Please give me a little advice, for my heart still aches for her even for all. ON THK FKNCK. A.—Each have harbored some regret, something we wish might not have been; but It is for us to make as light of it as possible. It may help you if you wljl keep this in mind: if she cared for you as much as she should have, she would not have let her mother come between you, unless you were to bliAne. „ It is not too late yet for her to see her mistake and change her mind. Keep Your Keif-Respect. Dear Miss Grey: lam at a lons to know how to keep away from the admiration of men years my senior, whom I come dully in conflict, with, because of my position. They l are influential men and ; could cause my dismissal if I tltry chose so to do. I am only 1U years old, and prefer the company of young folks; but have none ; of that kind because they ' seem to think me distant, ' though I try to be friendly in ■ ,' such a way that they might • not consider me forward. I ' have often heard my good looks mentioned, though I am really only an ordinary i ' looking girl. Do please tell me how to < rid myself of the ' annoying I ' characters and gain the j" "friendship of those my own [ age. My ways are not old, ■ \ ioh*ninny people take me for ? * f«. BETH. 1 A.—Never, absolutely never . take an Insult or -forwardness . from any man through' fear of I losing your position. There is always another position waiting for you somewhere just as good J and perhaps better. i If your employer is a fit and decent one, lie will admire you rather than discharge you for de fending your self-respect. Tell the men coldly and politely that such conduct Is out of place and altogether uncalled for. To gain the friendship of . younger people, make it a point to go out among them, persist in gaining their acquaintance, In vite them to your home and they will soon learn you are not dis tant. .

Since I have _ been out west I have gained - the acquaintance of a young ! lady whom I have fallen des j perately In love with. 1 Now, Miss Grey, what I ' want to know is how I can 1 break the engagement with 1 my former love and win the heart of my present Ideal. 1 , Please do not neglect to an swer this, as I feel that I ant ; greatly in need of your ad . vice. - D. P. , A.—lndeed, I will not tell you how to win any girl's heart— only to break it. Until you change your harum-scarum, scapegrace ways you are not wor j thy of a girl's love. You may be instantly and des perately attracted by the young lady, but love is of a slower growth. You are "greatly in need of ' advice," and j I hope you will follow it.

Pear Miss Grey: Like many others, I come to you when in trouble. I have been an Intimate friend of a certain girl for nearly three years. During this time we have been fool ish by Indulging in a kissing game occasionally. Now, very suddenly, she has changed and has asked me to promise never to kins her again. I shall, of course, promise; but I cannot under* stand her alteration, aa her reason Is "Oh, just because." As you are a woman and understand girls, will you please explain this sudden -change? I'l //.I I M. A.—You, yourself, admit it to be foolish, isn't it quite probable the girl lias come to the same conclusion It Is to be hoped so, at least. Doubtless she has come to view the situation through clear eyes and can see herself as others see her.
