the Interesting Horoxcope Of

PROFESSOR LEO BERNART, the -ele-bratcd
astrologer, presents on this page
his interesting reading of the horoscope
of the baby boy lately born to Mr. and Mrs.
"Jack" Geraghty. What the - ordain for

The marriage of Miss Julia French, whose
family is one of the wealthiest and most influ
ential in the Newport cottage colony, to "Jack"
Geraghty, son of a Newport hack-driver, and
himself a chauffeur, brought about her com
plete estrangement from her own people. From
a petted society girl and heiress she became a
poor mechanic's wife, suddenly transplanted
from a palace, where she was surrounded with
every luxury, to a cottage where she had to
do her own housework. In this cpttage the
baby was born. What will its future be? Pro
fessor Bernart gives the answer which the stars
have told him.

By Prof. Leo; Bernart,' the; Celebrated Astrologer.
WILL tlio baby born of tho union of Julia Fronch, the
wealthy Newport bollo, nnd "Jnok" GornBhty, tho pen

The stars will toll! Thoy nlono hold tho sccrot of tho life
of tho boy just ushered Into tho world. Tho sclonco of astrol

ho will remain poor and bocomo a chauffeur or a cab driver
following tho profoEBlon of his fathor and his, paternal grand

been dramatic In tho extreme Ills mother a girl of eighteen
tho daughter of wealthy parents, pampered and potted all her
life, suddenly elopes with a pennlloss chauffeur, "Jack" Gor
ngbty, and marries hfm before her family can intorvono or ob

a young girl, accustomed as oho was to ovorything which money
could buy, expect to fit into theso surroundings, and bo happy
as tho wlfo of their eon Jack?
Yot she seems to havo done so remarkably woll. Sho cer
tainly showed great pluck nnd determination in her nowly
chosen courso of life. And when her parentB and all her rela
tives disowned her and left Newport, shutting up thoir housos
in order that thoy might not boo' hor face, sho bravely set to
work to inako hor husband happy and adjust herself to hor now
surroundings, And now sho is a happy raothor. For, on tho
night beforo Election I?ay Miss French now Mrs. "Jack" Ger
aghty boro a son, a bouncing boy.
I havo worked long aud carefully over tho horoscopo of tho
Geraghty baby, and I fael euro that what I havo to say will
proro correct In alt Its chief essentials.
Leo 1b tho ruling planet undor whloh this child is born; this
indicates a strong, fresh, straightforward character, bravo and
true. Saturn also occupies a prominent place In his houso of
Life being In tho mid-heavens, This Is a striking, significant
and unusual position, being In exactly tho samo place as it oc
cupied In tho case of Napoleon Bonoparte. Ilia life, therefore,
as indicated by thin, should be moat successful unusually so.
Tho queer planot Neptune, which nlso plays a largo part In hlB
life, determines friendships, nnd shows mo that thoro will bo
many hard feelings orousod In certain quarters on account of
havoc nnd bo tho cnuso pf a gicat deal of unhapplness and
some of the friendships he will form. Somo of these will work
misery to himself and to othsr mombors of his family. This
relates -particularly to men friends, because all tho indications
nro that tho friendships of women will usually bo fortunate.
Tho position of tho planot Mars indicates that thoro will be
a good deal of strlfo and conflict between tho paronts and .grand
parents of tho child not only about tho baby, but also about
property and other matters. Mars, being a war-like Influence,
Indicates this clearly. It might oven Blgnlfy an ultimate separa
tion of the paronts.
Tho prominent and unusual position of Saturn Indicates that
this baby, If he growH to tho cBtato of manhood, will be pos
sessed of great ambition; ho will cravo power and will be deter
mined to get It. Ho will certainly bo successful In this, as all
tho signs point to tho fact that, when ho growB up, ho will bo
rich in lite own right quite apart from any money which may
be left to him or that may bo coming to him from his mother.
Leo and tho Sun are the ruling planots which will most
dominate his life. Theso nro particularly good. There will be
several tragedies in his life, but none of these will be of bo
-ushlng a naturo but that he can ovorcomo them. Thoy will
i,t crush him. Pride Is Indicated; and, bocauso of his great
ambition, ho must be careful that ho does not meet his "Water
loo" like Napoloon whoso signs his horoscope closely re
sombles In somo rospoctfl. ..

which wll bo bad for himself and for others. The other woman

T last the man who Is past
forty Is getting justice at
tho bands of the opposlto
sex. Fair ones of various ages who
have left him lying-on tho shelf for
so long are taking him down, brush
ing him off, comparing him with
exuberant, arrogant youth of his own
sex and declaring him to be, aftor
all, tho only "perfect lover."
This belated discovery stands to
tho credit of Mrs. York Miller, a
popular English novelist. She ad
mits, however, that the truth might
havo been overlooked If tho man of
forty, or thereabouts, had not "found
himself," by cheering
up and airing his long-
neglected powers of fas
cination. "It 'doesn't matter,"
remarks Mrs. Miller, "If
his hair is tinged with
gray and his habits arc
fixed. Ho Is still more
charming than the youth
of twenty sr tho self-satisfied,
man of thirty. He
has fow conceits, is ycry
thoughtful nnd consider
ate, and, most important
of all, knows his proper
value in the world."
Tho chief advantages
of the middle-aged man
are catalogued by this
writer as follows :
(1) He Is Invariably
a good talker. Ho has
usually had a varied
experlenco of life, and
he knows what to say and what will
Interest his companion.
(2) Thp young lover Is usually
wrapped up In himself. He gives a
woman tho Impression that be Is
conforring a favor on her by his.
Not so the bachelor of forty. He
has grown out of that Ho nlv i
makes a woman- feel that she Is con
ferring a pleasure by seeing him
at all.
(3) The lover of forty does all he
can to please you. Ho never neg
lects any social politeness, as do
(4) Above all things, he is com
panionable. Ho Is very seldom
moody or low-splrltod. Besides, be
ing a lover, ho is somebody upon
whom a woman enn depend.
Tho i most slgniflcant advantage
possessed by tho lover of forty or
over lies in tho impossibility of
"llnding him out" after n arriage,
because ho is so obviously himself
during the period of courtship. When
women marry young, inexperienced
men, however, there is always tho
dunger of their finding out after
ward, when tho sharp edge of love
has worn off, that their husbands are
not good companions and that they
really have little in common.
J . such cases the wife becomes a
victim of the phenomena described
by Karin Mlcbaells In her book of
world-wldo celebrity entitled, "Tho
Dangorous Age." Reaching the age
of forty, or thereabouts, herself, and
suddenly realizing that she has
missed In her life all that women
hold most dear, she is liable to frn
tic moments of determination to
grasp a few years of happiness at
any cost.
But to whom does sho turn for
tho companionship sho craves? To
another unformed youth of twen'y
five? Never! When she holds out
her hand in that "dangerous age"
It is to tho considerate, steadfast
man of forty, even fifty.
As such a heroine of a tabloid
einctlonal drama recently produced
at a Now York theatre, with the
significant title of, "Rainbow
Bridges," sho says to tho man ot
forty-five In Justification ot herself
and of every other v.cman lu simi
lar plight:
"Oh, you mon! How can we
expect you to conceive tho grief,
tho terror with which wo approach
tho confines of youth and beauty
still unloved? Every wrinkle, every
.;r hair is nncther dagger plauted
in our hearts. Oh the mounting ter
ror with which we rcallzo the wan
ing of our powers io attract tba
love we have missed! A clammy
hand, with colder, yot fiercer grip,
seems to clutch our hearts 'as - a
count tbt m ur tat . niialn. It Is
the grim Reaper pronounclcg our
sentence of doom a thousand times
more cruel than death. Five years
four years hree years. The bell
of our doom tolls ever louder, more
relentlessly. Two years one yearl
Then wo are frantic, and we seek
to cross to the shore of love by
the rainbow bridges wo have' build
ed!" All this trouble because she pick
ed a thoughtless youth of twenty
live to marry, instead of the settled
and considerate man of forty-five!
In her enthusiasm over her dis
covery of the valuable and .long
neglected runlltles of the middle
aged man, Mrs. Miller interviewed
women of different ages on the sub
ject, with these results: "
"I do not say that tho middle
aged man la the most successful
lover. But. If women only realized
it, thoy would often do well to
accept him In preference to a
younger man.
"1 know several men on the shady
side of thlrty-flve who are the most
charming companions and frien-'s.
There Is a gentlo melancholy about
tho mlddle-agod lover that no,
woman can resist.
"A girl of twenty gave a ; i
opinion. 'I like middle-aged men
because thoy inako me feel , I am
somebody. They always say nice
things. They notice how you aro
dressed, and compliment you. A
young man haa no Torfor rib j
or laces.
""They have amusing views on
things, and a soothing effect upon
one. Sometimes they quote sweet
little pieces of poetrjand make you
feel It Is all about you.
"Young men have no qualities
like that. They seem to have very
little In them. They do not always
mako you feel happy.
"Probably much or the charm of a
bachelor of forty depends upon his
bringing up. if bo has had a sister
to look after him ho is probably
utf and likable.
"A good maiij ouug women nowa
days prefer to talk to the middle
agud bachelor in preference to won
of their own ago. Theso things
are to be noticed 1 society every
where. The miudle-agud, uven the
elderly, man la no " nger on the
sc. If."
