Why wives are usually more beautful I,hail husbands, how it comes that women are beardless, in what respects women far sur pass men. and the reasons for the development of the chin in man from the rudimentary chin in his forebear, the ape—these and other ipieslions of a related nature were discussed at the re cent meeting of the Mritish As sociation for the Advancement of Sciende. It is all vcr> entertain ing, hut not a hit romantic. Women are more beautiful than men. we are told, because men in earlier times used brute force to possess themselves ot the most attractive women. So cial relationship then rested up on brute force. I'lle strong man was able to possess himself ot the woman he desired as against the weak man. wlm might have been more beautiful, il the word beautiful may ever properly be applied to man. One of I he • distinguished speakers Hally declared that wo men in the selection ot partners have few aesthetic instincts and no sense of the beaut ilul. A homely man has just as good a chance as any other to obtain a beautiful wife. It. is often a mallei' ol wonder that very attractive women have such hopelessly homely hus- , bands. If Ihe scientists are right, it is because man looks for beau ty in women while women admire strength in men. rather Ilian handsomeness. In Ihe long ago women were Ihe objects of many a light, and even today we some times hear of young fellows en gaged in list ieiiII s over a girl. The lirsl lighter, presumably, was considered by Ihe prehistoric wo men Ihe Inst protector. \\'e li ml in I lie accoii ill s o I I lie Hrilish Association for the Ad vancenienl of Science some dil ferenees of opinion on Ihe ques tion of whether a woman lias any sense of tin' b an I i f i i I in man. At least one speaker gave woman credit for Ihe development of mans chin. The ape-woman preferred the ape-man who had more chin and by a process of se_ lection the chin was encouraged and developed. The speaker seems to have assumed that wo man had a chin lirsl, for he said that with the develop.n’t of the chin in man Ihe power of artic ulate speech arose. Of course, woman was a big talker before man knew much about speech. And awful lo contemplate, wo men of Ihe long ago had beards. The professors were agreed on this. Util early man liked women will out beards best and Ihe se lection of such women for mates gradually eliminated hair from woman's face. Tin* sc icnl Isis all irmcd dial the jnen were much superior lo wo men in slrenglh, lull did not have a corresponding mental suporinr ily. Women excelled in detecting differences through I he touch or other senses. (Jenerally women were just about twice as acute along these lines. Jl has been a long-slanding puzzle as to why women, who have a highly developed sense of beauty for dres's, for natural scenery, for music and for liter ature, should nevertheless be come enraptured over the home liest men in town. Thanks to the British scientists, we have an ex planation. ^rhe women have in herited from Iheir prehistoric forebears an admiration for phy sical strength—for the power that, guards and protects—Kx. POLITICS AND PUBLIC SERVICE Politics is a word less fre quently used in America than it once was; now we speak more of the public service. We need the new phrase. Politics had assumed a selfish and sinister meaning, it meant narrowness, pulls and pettifog ging, and a whole lot of things not in harmony with (he larger public aspirations of the Amer ican people. It means a game, always to be played at the expense of the peo ple, and for the benefit of schem ing and often u'scrupulmis place hunters. The very word was cor-« rupted, and the beauty of ilsoty mology was soiled, by (lie low praetces for wlieh it lias stood in our life as a nation. Polilics ceased to be regard ed as a science. The word did not suggest economics, or gov ernment, or abstract political theories, or sociology; it meant a hunt and a scramble for office; election frauds; politics and per sonal dishonesties and public, plunder. So we have begun to speck of public service. The phrase Ills our purposes heller than tin* word politics. We are routing out the elements of narrow and bickering party ism in our cities and stales. We are demanding efficiency and economy in all branches of pub lic service. Instead of men who will do tilings to us, we are demanding men who will do things for us. Instead of polities, which has meant personal and parly ser vice. we demand public service. The word polilcs may came hack into use and favor; it is not a word of had lineage; hut if we return lo I tie old habit of speak ing and writing much of politics, if will lie because the word at length stands for elVicienl, hon est and economical service.—Kx.
