THE OLD HONESTY AND THE NEW.
It is the fashion nowadays to deplore the general want of moral
principle and to lament lugubrious.}- the decline of old fashioned hon
esty.
But. really, how about this old fashioned honesty?
It is always easy to see a saint in a dead relative, just as it is
easy to see a statesman in a deal politician. Grandfathers' virtues,
like grandfathers' clocks, may be a badge of respectability, but in
our own day they were not always in good running order. Our fore
fathers were no better than we are —indeed, to judge from the criti
cism of their contemporaries, they were a good deal worse.
The world in which old fashioned honesty iived was singularly
uncomplicated. Smith knew Jones and Jones knew Smith, and If
the one did not cheat the other there was every chance that each
would die in the odor of respectability. Individualism set the limits
to old fashioned honesty.
We need this individualistic honesty today, and we have it. But
we need today a very much bigger sort of honesty—an honesty which
sees that our obligations are set not alone by our relations with
each other, but also by our relations with municipalities and
states, with a nation and a world.
Such honesty is not any too common, but It Is growing.
Men have gone down to their mausoleums labeled honest mill
ionaires who were directors in corporations whose methods would
bring blushes to the cheek of a confidence man. According to tho
standard of old fashioned honesty there was to be said
against these honest millionaires. But from the point of view of the
new honesty they were thieves, though they robbed legally.
One does not need to be an academic optimist to see the begin
nings of this new fashioned honesty.
We are doing the best we can to shape up laws which shall ex
press a new social conscience.
Morality Is always a generation or two ahead of legality,
T/e number of offenses against the moral and legal codes Is in
creasing enormously.
Moral principle never out so large a figure In the affairs of this
American people as It dyes now.
Our godly ancestors had o'ie moral qualm where we have 20.
It never occurred to them that a lottery was wrong, or that It
•was wicked to drink rum, or to whip a child or a wife, or to enslave
the black man and cheat and debauch the red man.
Nine out of ten of the little conscientious niceties of lifo are dis
coveries of the last 50 years. More societies to do all sorts of good
and work all kinds of reforms were created in the last two genera
tions than had been formed or thought of before from the beginning
ef the world.
TRAINING FOR MATRIMONY.
The worthy bishop of Rlpon laments that England has no
schools for engaged couples. It 1■ an oversight from which our own
country also suffers.
There Is no end of schools of law and medicine, schools of type
writing and trade, dancing, dramatics, cooking, correspondence,
china painting, wood carving and leather burning by mail. But no
benevolent millionaire has yet endowed a preparatory school for
matrimony.
Yet, matrimony Is the most Important condition of life and should
command the most careful preparation. A few primitive prescrip
tions of bones<?t tea, sulphur and treacle and flannel and goose oil
are passed down from generation to generation, but tho truly scien
tific courses of the lecture room and laboratory still remain to be
founded.
To be sure, Mr. Roosevelt now and thon lightens his leisure by
semiofficially pointing out the path of duty to motherhood; still, this
Is a voluntary service and is not required of him by statute or con
stitution.
In France a paternal government, after the ceremony, presents
bride and bridegroom with an at Tractive littlo booklet of advice
about family affairs. We have not got that far in England or this
country.
The General Federation of Women's clubs appears also to have
realized the need, and has established a sy«em of instruction, grad
uates of which system are guaranteed to stand the acid test of mat
rimony, even on an income of a week.
Unfortunately, It is a delicate subject for teaching. There can
l>e no instruction until there are recognized instructors. And where
are they?
Those who have had the highest success in marriage hold tho
fewest theories about It.
Those who fluently express decided opinions on the subject are
Che unmarried.
And those who have been most married oecounter a distinct
prejudice and are not encouraged to parade their experiences.
By all means, let us have training for mairimony.
But who will do the training?

THE UNWELCOME GUESTS
Yes. I've got a few words about
"vacation," too: and I want to say
them to you folks who are thinking
—about this time of the year, and
never any other time —of your
"country friends," where you can
"go and spend the summer" be
cause—and your only reason, to
tell the truth —because "it will be
cheap." But it generally mighty
"dear" to your "country friends"
before they see the last of you. You
will probably remark about the
third day that it is "so lovely to
have your own chickens and eggs
and cream," and "living is so much
cheaper in the country." Don't
you think it! Every mouthful of
cream or chicken means expense,
and care, and work, hard toil be
hind the plow, no play, no rest, no
"day off," and represents to the
farmer all the "interest" he has on
earth to draw on.
You think it "so delicious to have
your own fruit and not, be obliged
to buy it as we city people do." And
then you turn Arabella and James
and the rest of the tribe into the
strawberries and smilingly remark
how the "little dears are enjoying
themselves."
You do not think, and wouldn't
care if you did, that too often that
same berry "patch" is all the
source of money the farmer has
until "crops" are ripe. When you
leave you tell "poor Kate" that she
has "really gone off dreadfully In
her looks," and think that you are
"sure sho does not manicure her
nails any more."
Not very likely when she has
probably "manicured" over the
wash tub and cook stove for you
and yours for six mortal weeks.
Just remember, will you, that very
likely "poor Kate" would like to
have a chance to invite "folks"
herself; and just let. your "country
friends" do the inviting if they
want you.
VERY DRESSY.
A gown for the dressiest of oc
casions is of black Bruges lace.
This veils white radium silk. Baby
Irish is added to give a touch of
elegance, while white taffeta and
chiffon aid to make beautiful.
The full gored skirt, is finished
with a number of small frills. The
deep yoke of the corsage is of
white taffeta overlaid with shir
rings of soft cream chiffon. The
Irish lace appears in the full dou
ble puffed sleeves. Tho stock is
also formed of it.
Most Heartless Jissassin
Of The tfeiv Century.
Dead Anarchist, Mateo Moral, who tried to kill King Alphonso and Que en Victorle in their wedding march.
The sketch Is by 8. Begg, artist. In Madrid. After Morals suicide, the body was placed In a
rough coffin and exposed to view in a vault of the military hospital at Madrid. The cemetery authori
ties refused the body burial.
If you calculate to "come out In
the country" this summer, and are
the kind of folks I have been talk
ing to, you had better not only
"leave your husband at home," but
yourself and all the rest, too.

The common laborers and track
builders of Tacoma have gone on
a strike for more wages. The
strike seems to be general, includ
ing laborers of all nationalities, and
when conditions are so bad that
even the Italian laborers rebel they
must be about as bad as can be
imagined. The construction com
panies interested claim to be secur
ing help from Seattle and other
points.
