Undoubtedly the Automobile Is Playing a Large Part in the Affairs of the Heart'" It Is Also Becoming An Important Factor in Honeymoon Happiness*"Some* thing About the Accessories of a Honeymoon Tour Till: motor car is not ;ilonc making its manufacturer a millionaire. It is the latest matrimonial promoter, it is responsible for the beginning of many a romance since it began its career of streaking aiohg American high ways, to the amazement of the man in the fields. The part that the automobile is playing in affairs of the heart may be accounted for in sever.'! ways. Per haps it> possession by the young man is a strong argument in behalf oi his ability to lake care of a wife in a highly creditable manner. Perhaps its fleetness insures no interruption to the proposal. And still again, perhaps, a red touring car has the same romantic fascination for the young lady in question that the red sled of her school boy sweetheart exercised over her when her dresses reached only to her knees. A Society Matron Says More Romances Are Made in Motor Cars Than in Drawing-Rooms Nowadays Jin t whatever the cause, more romances, according to a well-known society matron of New York, "are begun in a motor car than in the drawing-room tnese days; and, really, every time I see a big touring car standing in front of a house where I know there are girls of marriageable aye. I now look for the announcement of an engagement a little later on." To all couples >v brought to matri monj by its aid. the motor car is a serious essential to honeymoon happi ness. It is to lack and Janet in 1904 what the pillion or the post-chaise was i" Edwin and Edwina in 1804. only it is a lot more comfortable, more speedy and more really romantic than any ol the old style conveyances favored of lovers. In other words, the matrimonial motor car is just about the acme of cosy luxury and a realization of what the poet meant when he talked about being borne away on the wings of love. That is, cf course, provided you get a first-class car and have it fitted up in the completest style, and map out your road itinerary with judgment and an eye to the beauties of nature, and take the woman of your cnoice and of your heart into the secret of your plans with you. The Groom Must Tell the Bride of the Motor Honeymoon for Trousseau Reasons Do not, as you hope for happiness, attempt to spring a motor car honey moon on your newly-made bride. She won't fall in with your ideas, or even step into your car, if you do. You must, on the contrary, confide to her, in the early weeks of your engage ment, made in the very same one, perhaps, in which you hope for a hon eymoon tour, that you scheme of bliss is to whirl her away from the altar your twenty horse power automobile and spend at least a fortnight exploring, in her exclusive company, the queer lanes and highways new of some par ticularly beautiful part of the country. She will like that, because she can plan her wedding and her trousseau accordingly, because it is just about the most fashionable idea going, and because she really relishes the pros- HERE'S A JOE JEFFERSOtf STORY ON E of the many stories told of Joseph Jefferson is that of an interview lie had with some children in Detroit, Michigan. Three little girls of ten years or more old were incurably stage struck. At home their yearn ings were not greatly encouraged, so that the trio had become a mutual consolation society. When they heard that Mr. Jefferson had come to town- —"-—~~~~"~~~~~— they resolved, in solemncouncil as sembled, to ask his aid and ad vice. For several days they made good their es cape from their homes, not wish ing to confide in the unsympathet ic, and hung about the stage door. Discour aged by not catchin g a glimpse of the ac tor, they wrote him a letter ex plaining their am bition and their trials. His reply, telling them to be at the stage door after the next matinee,sent them into parox ysms of delight. When he ap peared they were -.1 breathless that they were hardly able to acknowl edge their iden tity.

Of course, there are, then, two means open to y>.n by which you can gratify her fancy and your own. \ ou can rent a guaranteed machine and a chauffeur warranted to know the roads and never look b< hind him. Then you can sit in the roomy tonneau and enjoy the society of Janet to the brim. But that is not the enterprising nor the modish way. Voti should rent or own your car and run ii yourself, and you must devote at least three weeks to active preparation for the trip. If you don't know how to steer, brake, pack, oil, clean and mend a horseless carriage, you .should learn, and furthermore, you should let your bride-to-be learn al <>. She will wish and demand to be taught, because on the tour she is sure to want to take turns with you at the wheel. In a couple of weeks she can get such an intelligent grasp on transmission, jump sparks, splash lubrication, carburetters and cfaw .couplings that you'll wonder whether you are not about to marry»a mechanical genius. She will also learn how to slide into a, set of overalls and crawl under the chassis and investigate any mechani cal difficulty, and in the end, if she is just the right sort, you will hardly ever need the assistance of ;i repair shop man when she is by your side. Take Care to Start With the Automobile in Tip-Top Condition But, provided both you and your riancec are expert motorists, 3011 must .-till devote some little time and some trilling expense, prior to the opening of the honeymoon, to putting the car ni special touring order. If your car is a possession of some months' standing, it is necessary to send it to the shop for tuning up, no matter how excellent its condition may be. Order every inch of the machinery examined and the brass trimmings burnished and lacquered. If the up holstery is only tarnished the least bit and the body varnish merely touched here and there, you are still justified in having the whole body recovered and repainted. lv case you are a motorist of repu tation and abundant cash, and you are purchasing a new car with a view to 'Honeymooning therein, you need only hint to the car's manufacturer of the first use which you wish to make of it, and he will send your new, grand, low-swung phaeton to your father-in law's door, on the wedding day, look ing like a mighty steed that has been groomed to the point of perfection. For spring honeymoon tours, it is the fashion this year to paint the cars gray green with gilt lines sparingly introduced, though white and gold is a standard combination ever in high favor. The upholstery in a car of the first mentioned color is of leather, in a tone that matches the body, and the bride lets the color of the car pre dominate in her choice of a going away gown. There Must Be Plenty of Room in the Tonneau for the Bride's Luggage When your order goes forth for the purchase of a powerful and handsome new car. or the retouching of your old along by his side toward the hotel, he asked them >everal questions and listened to the replits with the ut most gravity. Then he turned to them. "Do you know," he said gently, "that the first and most important thing is for an actress to have a splen did education? The more she knows the better chance she has of being a great actress. You girls are much too young to think of the stage yet, but you are old enough to read and study." SUNDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 14, 1904. one. it is of vital importance to con sider' its special arrangement with a view to accommodating luggage. There is no third party shipped for a honeymoon tour; tiie passenger list includes only tv\o. and the state of their minds is such that they usually prefer to sit side by side on the front scat. Therefore, the tonneau is your baggage-room. The bride's little wicker trunk goes into that. It is made of materials to match the basket-work used elsewhere for lunch baskets, tool cases, etc. Her little wicker trunk just fills the bottom of the tonneau, and it holds a change of clothes and a hat. all of them suitable for wear at hotels that you repair to along the route for dinner. The Honeymoon Costume of Bride and Groom Is Warm and Comfortable On top of the bride's trunk goes Un suitable rugs and rain overalls and the dust coats for both of yeu. There arc always three weights of rugs supplied with a well-equipped motor car. The fur sel is Siberian dog, unless you aim to follow the style, and then you adopt the more expensive coon skins. A coon skin rug for a really smart car is left undyed and shows a hand some decoration of dangling coon tails at intervals along tiie sides. A coon-skin coat with tail decoratl<m> on the collar is what the mascrline motorist wears, to accord with his costly rug, and a Daniel Booue cap and coon-skin gloves completes his outfit. The bride at his side wears a long, green cloth coat lined with coon skin. which, however, overflows on to the exterior of collars ur cuffs. Or she can be still more bride-iik^ by wear ing ermine, a French motor cap of thf white fur and a double curtain veil of chiffon. Her muff ir- always a part of the rug over her knees, because she thus aids in holding the fur robe in place. To keep her littJe feet warm she puts on moccasin-shaped high boots of fur that have tops reaching clear to her knees. All these details for comfort and convenience the owner of the motor supplies, and he also bends his intel lect long' and painstakingly upon the question of the tour itscli. He must know where he is going and how, he must also be sure to get the use of good roads and the privileges of the best hotels; en route. The Best Man Has Important Duties in the Arrangement of the Tour As the best man of the average groom is a motorist of experience, he conspires with the benedict over the itinerlry,. with a view to selecting a route that will be sale and pleasant and sufficiently retired from the track of the average tourist. A honeymoon motoring tour should not^ last longer than one week, and the course laid out for the car is kept a profound secret from all the rest of the world—even from the bride. The best man. who knows how to inspire real gratitude, his the whole tour beautifully mapped out by an expert on a big sheet of stout, white glazed linen. This he has bound in heavy parchment covers, on which he orders etched the name of the bride and grcom benenth the sentence, "Our Wedding Tour." For many months the memory of those words acted as a spur to their energies, and now after years have passed two recall the interview clear ly and affectionately. The third girl was in a fair way to realize her his trionic ambition when death overtook her. -. Ha& Mr. Jefferson made fun of their confession, they would have gone away hurt and unsatisfied. Instead, he taught them in a few words a lesson they never forgot—that long and earn est preparation is the only pathway to success.
