Hut the original type Is undergoing a wonderful chance. Man Is becoming; a more humble ba ling an he watches the development of I woman. lie no longer ridi cules her mental aspirations; he no longer flouts her ambitions to be something besides n housekeeper; and he no longer at tempts to dominate Jier when she sets forth to carve out n destiny for her nelf according to era her own Ideals. But it is seldom a man ot the original type (the strong animal man of un awakened spirituality) stops to analyze the feminine nature, and to consider a woman's best interests at the cost of his own pleasure, in the possession of her. 'When such a man Is encountered one may be certain he Is of a higher and finer type than the mere outer masculine envelope indicates. The following letter, written by a man who believes himself to be of very ordi nary clay, reveals far more than the written words express. It reveals the real divine man just emerging from the gross chrysalis state into the winged creature. For the moment & human being begins io put aside purely selfish considera tions and to take the future happiness of others to heart, that moment the spiritual nwakcnlng has begun, It Is only a matter of time, and pa tience, and prayer, and the understanding of the laws of being, when such a man will develop the real universal spirit of manhood. That spirit, which Is to revolutionize the wholo 'world, and create a new race nf altruistic beings, who live for the good of the whole, not tho benefits of tho few. Here Is tho letter: "Should a girl of a mental tempera ment, who seeks mental pursuits rather than physical, who enters heart and soul in all she does, whose joys, pleasures, rr Minus Infinity By EDGAR LUCIEX LAR1UN. Everybody says that degrees above zero on a thermomoter tube are plus, and below, mlnui. If up that Is, away from the center of 'the earth Is plus, then, to ward the center must surely be minus. Directions to the right are plus; left, in nus; to the front, plus; rear, minus; toward the sun, plus; away, minus. In space there Is no up or down for a line from the earth to a etar at midnight, If called tip, will be down at noon. A thcremometer must have a zero mark, and explorers In space deeps must have s. zero. The entlro globe of tho earth Is M excessively small when compared to the sidereal unlversa that Its scientific name la an Infinitesimal, almost, but not exactly zoto. Ilut researchers in space pay no attention to the inrth but this: they call It zero for a starting point. And clvo no heed to Its turning- on an axis. With the enrth. zero, or nothing, no error can be detected In solving any of th cosmic problems; tho friction would be so Inconceivably smu'l that It Is al ways omitted in problems of both mass quantity of mutter in existence and spare. I ant careful not to uie the word quantity with the word apace, for quan tity is n word used at .tho base ot arith metic and all higher branchas to the very highest of mathematics. But the word Infinite Is used. There could not he fig ures enough written on a line, however long, to express an Inflnlto quantity. Hence, the two words Infinite' and quan tity destroy each other. Thus, the dlstanca of the bright star Blrlus, the "Dog star," from the earth Is known to be flfty-cno trillion miles. Suppose that a lino of figures, as 37.-Ci,l- , bo written from the earth to Blrlus, and let each unit 1 represent a mile, then tho distance represented would be an infinitesimal when compared with an Infinite distance. Or, let each unit represent one year, a hundred or a thous and years, thfcn the time represented would be almost zero, or nothing, in com parison with an infinite time, or eter nity. So mathematicians never try to handle an "Inflnlto quantity," but when any problem Is being solved that Involves In finity, thoy stop at once and make this mark oo which Is simply a figure S turned over on Its side. The tlUe of this article Is "Plus and Minus Infinity." The explanation is; Point a telescope, or pencil, in any di rection from our handy zero the earth nnd call the direction plus,; then the pre cise .opposite direction In spaoe Is minus. If the Idea sought to be conveyed by a teacher, for Instance, Is Infinity, he puts tn a plus or minus oo as the cast may be. This Is as effective u that of writ ing a string of numbers many qulntllllons of miles, yes, or Infinitely long.

We are both 2(1 years of age. After her higher feelings gain ascendancy over her enlmal will she be happy with me, knowing herself to be mentally superior?" The woman who Is fascinated by such a man a this (the man behind tho letter; not tho man who merely wrote the words) would not find It a difficult task to make her Ideal materlallzo Into what she de sired him to bo, If she understood the power of suggestion. In every human being there lies the dual nature, or rather tho two vibration of one power; The coarser and the finer; tho earthly and divine; tho physical and spiritual. This man has aroused the dormant physlcat nature of the woman; he has made her more human. She has aroused something, akin to tho spiritual In him, making the animal more divine, elso he could not think so deeply of her best Interests, and hesitate to tako her life Into his keeping.

There must bo mental companionship, there must bo a spiritual symputhy, or there will ho satiety. dlKcord, repulsion, and even hatred, after thu physical fever has had Its ran. A man who Is loved by such a woman as this letter describes ought to find hla greatest happiness In developing his men tal and spiritual qualities, to render him telf her equal and her true mate. In such development he would find his best satisfaction. . Daily.Fashions By IiA RACONTEUHE. nuns UY LA nUCONTECBK. A tailored costume of mole-gray ta shown here.

You remember the last morning she swept in here to say a klnda plttylng goodby to ua poor slav ing Susies?" "I remember her all right," said the Head Barber. "She was pretty enough to win anybody, that kid. If I had been single and owned a mine out in Butte. I would have grabbed her myself.

Then, when the big brute seen that she was defenceless, he shook her till her teeth rattled. She ain't lying about It, either, George, because she said in her letter that If I wanted to come out to Butte she could show me the black-and-blue marks on her arms, where he grabbed a hold of her to shake her. "Brother Wilfred nays that if I will give him the price he will take a flying trip out to Montana and teaoh the brute a lesson, but the fare to Uutte Is about ISO, and even If 1 gave It to my dear brother I ain't sure that he would get much farther than Newark on his er rand ot chivalry.

The Danger Agre- Beatricc Fairfax Says: Woman Is Always Pnw?lnR Through n DnnffcrouN Aro nnd Should Iicnrn to Look Upon with Sancnoss and Discretion. ..... Dy BEATRICE FAIRFAX. Some one has said that the dangerous age for woman begins when she Is 45 years of age and extends till she has passed CO years. It ts during this period, these dlssecters nf the human honrt rinnlnro that ah atltl loves, and being denied the outlet for that love given a younger woman, who has hahlrM nnri whnn. htlnhnnrl In fitlll nn Ah. Ject of some affection, her heart strings go reaching out for any one, ana it Is men inai cnaos iouows. T wnlltil AvtnniT that rutrfnA lrtiAwn n the "dangerous age." beginning It with the day a girl stops hugging a doll to her breast, to gaze after some boy, and making It end only when the Infirmities of age have confined her, tottering and blind, to a chimney corner. Here aro proofs; "I am 15 years old." writes a rtrl. "nnd In love with a married man. He does not seem to notlco me, but ono day he said I was tt pretty llttlo girl nnd would maKe torao man a nne wife some day, and I hove loved him ever since. Ho never asks to tokn mn nut. WnnM It ha right for me to put myself In his way and tell him I love him madly? I can't glvo him up." A woman of 10 yearn sends a tear stained letter: "I have bin n-nlntr with a younjr man my ago for a year. Of inie ne seems, very cool, and J hear he Is going with another girl. Would you advlso mo to daclaro my love to him and beg him to keep company with me?" "I am 2S years old," writes another woman, "nnd a man of 75 years wishes me to marry him. I do not love him, but he ts very wealthy, nnd I know that he would spend his money freely on me. Shall I marry him?" "I am 35 years old," says another, "and am a widow with four children. I re cently met r boy of 17 years and learned to love him. He looks old for his age. and I look young for mine. What I wish to know is, would we be happy to gether?" "I i-ee only letters from young girls In your column," writes a woman in the old-fashioned, cramped penmanship of many decades ago, "but I need help as murh as they. I am 60; my husband has been dead' twenty years; my children are married and gone, and thoy have borne me no grandchildren to love. I feel that I must love somebody, and when a young man came recently to board with me I fell In lovo with him. He ia only 25, but Is very steady in all his ways. I know my children will feel disgraced If I marry him, but I must lovo somebody, and he will gratify that longing. Would It be wrong to marry this young man? I havo a good deal of money and could give him luxuries ho couldn't havo If he married a poor girl." And away off In the chimney corner there sits many an old dame with a head that wags with age, whose eyes aw too dimmed by time to distinguish the faces of those who minister to her, who is saved from the tragedy of tho dangerous age only because her senile unattractlve ness drives mankind away. Down In her heart thero ls still the longing for love. It began in the days when her doll no longer satisfied her, and will continue aa long as her heart beats. Conditions are evolving a woman who claims to be of stronger build.
