There arc exceptions, to be surei there arc men who may bo safely trusted with the knowledge that they are all in all to the heart of the woman they are w ooing, liutsueh ones are deplorably few. The ardor of most men lasts only so long as last their uncertainty. Keep them off and they'll grow more and more de votedbring them near, and they'll cool off ns fast as aflat iron in the snow. Lot them think you care lit tle for them or their love, and they will try hard to become more worthy of your regard. Not flirt: not strive to wound their feelings we don't mean tinthumanity forbid; but don't make yourself cheap, just keep your own counsel, and tho more hopelessly in love you are tho more do you guard tho knowledge of that fact from your lover. Keep it down and in, all that you possibly can, till the magic words are said that mako you one; then tako oirtho bands but do it grad ually 'grow upon him;' show him by degrees tho strength ol tho passion which helms awakened in your soul. -- - - - Sensible, and to the point, is the fallowing article from tho Chattanoo xAilrr.rtisv.r.
