Man, tills article is. written for you. Are you a father with daughters? Are you a brother with- sisters" If you are, how are you (loins vour duty by your daughter or your ulster? How much real responsibility do you feel for her? What are you doing for her hap- i plness? How arc you protecting her? In what way are you attempting to safeguard her fu Sure? Oh, of' course. It you are well-to-do . jyou give your daughter ov sister her board and clothes, and I take It that If you are poof you nre not the kind of a cur that takes hcr-moncy away from her that she earns In storo or office. But that hind of goodness is merely negative, good ness. It Isn't really taking caro of the - girl. It Isn't enough. It's Just the be ginning of your duty to her, not tho end Of It Are you one of the grumpy fathers who growls like a sora headed bear whenever a young man comes to the house, and who looks so formidable that no youth with less courage than a wild animal tamer over ventures back a sec ond time? Are you one of the selfish fathers who likes to go to bed at S o'clock, and who doesn't want to be- disturbed by young jicoplo's singing and laughing, and who makes such a row every time daughter has company that she Is afraid to Invite her friends to hor own home'? ,Aro you a domestic tyrant whose chil dren cower before you. whose daughter ts so afraid of you that her one Idea of happiness 'Is. getting as far away from you as possible? What do vou know about the young men who visit your daughter and with whom, she gjacs topartlcs, .and. automo blllngj and the theater? Are "they the sort of rnep-you would Jlke her to marry? Are they clean anil honorable, apd is she safe with them?' Or are they men whoso very presence Is a contamination, und who are as dangerous for her to asso ciate with as It w6uld be for a lamb to venture Jnto a den of wolves? j Does ".our daughter confide In you? If she were becoming attached to n mutt would she give you n hint of It or not? And if you would be the last person to hear of It, why? What are you doing to help your daugh ter" to make the right sort of a marriage? Brother, what do you dg for your slster7 Do you take her out now and then to places of amusement, or are you always i too tired to go with sister? I Do you try to make things pleasant for her. or do you selfishly go your own way and let her shift for herself? Do you know tho men she goes with? You belong to sister's generation: you i ct.n find out all about any young fellow j who Is attentive to her, ond you can i Fee that the wrong men arc eliminated j from her visiting list, and tho right men i iicuuragea to come 10 see ner. uo you do that? Do you. have hcarttto-heart talks with her and warn her against little Impru dences that a girl mav commit through sheer Innocence? Do you put her wise to men's point of view about a girl's con duct and dress? Do you ever take the trouble to Intro duce her to nice men, the sort of men that make good husbands and that you would like to see her marry? You see, father and brother, you havo n very real duty to your daughter and sister, and there ts no cither duty In tho world that Is so often neglected. That'H the principal reason that so many girls go wronff. Mon have an Idea that girls don't heed any amusement or fun, and that all ou'vo got to do Is Just tell them to re main at home, and they'll stay put. But this Isn't true. Olrls are Just as keen for pleasure as any man Is, and If they can't get It In the right way they will take It In the wrong war. The father who won't let his daughter have her beaux at home simply turns her out on the street to meet men. If he denies her freedom at home he drives her Into license abroad. If he raises a row over every letter she gets at home, he puts a premium on clandestine cor respondence. Youth must have Its fling, and girlhood its laughter nnd dancing nnd romance, and it's simply a question of whether a Klrl has her Innocent amusement In her own home, under the sympathetic yet watchful eyes of her parents, or whether fihe goes to places on the sly, with strangers with whom she picks acquain tance In questionable ways, and Indulges In amusements that only too often lead to ruin. Any father can protect his daughter from such dangers. Any brother can. save his sister from such peril. The girl whoso father Is her best pal and whose brother is her comrade, and who is sure of some man of her family as a willing escort to any place she desires to go Is never the girl that gots Into trouble. Sho has her knight ever at her command. Her watchdog Is always on guard, and the human hyenas who prey on unde fended maidens keep a respectful dis tance from her. Fathers and brothers are directly re sponsible for nine-tenths of the disas trous marriages that git Is make. A woman has no way of finding out about the moral choracter of a man, but there Is no man who cannot ascertain whether another man leads a dissolute life or not. It Is the botinden duty of every father and every brother to keep an eagle eyo on the men who visit their daughters and sisters, und to shut their doors In the faces of drunkards and libertines be fore the girls fall In love with these scapegraces, Also, Inasmuch as most marriages arc the result of propinquity, fathers and brothers can do much towards promoting happy marriages of their daughters and sisters by Inviting worthy young men to their homes, and making It pleasant for them to visit there. There Is no chap eron equal to father or brother, and he can understudy heaven In tho match making business. And here's a final word to father and brother. Virtue Is not the only reward In this case. Girls are foolishly grateful for any attention from fathers and brothers, and If you'll only do a tlthn of your duty to your daughter or your sister you will get such devotion and ap preciation as you have never dreamed of. And It's nice to be worshipped as a little tin god. Is Til ere a Drowned (Continent, or Island, Submerged Beneath T reach ero us Atlantic Ocean ? By (i.YHRKTT 1 SKItVISS.

Before we ask for leisure let us learn The saeredness of time the holy trust Confided for a bchsoii to our care. l.abor and leisure make life beautiful When well divided, and labor means Deserved reward, and leisure sweet re pose, Or happy explorations In the fair Ascending paths of pleasure when we grow In health. In wisdom and In happiness. fl'li wit, c.1. hnnr. nf f F-fW iln.,1 thrtll and ! then alone. We prove our right to clamor, for moro time; But when the glnshop and the gambling den, The dive, the public dance hall, and the street Send sodden creatures slowly back to toll After the ending of h holiday, It makes a louder protest than the voice Of tyrant Greed against the shortened hour And lengthened wage of labor. Look to It The leisure lifts you ero you ask for more. Tve above lines written by me have called forth several criticisms and pro tests, some kindly Intent, some meant unkindly, from working people and their defendors. All these protests have been made from a mistaken point of view. No one liv ing believes more fully in the short ening of hours of labor than the writer of the lines quoted. I work frequently fifteen hours a day. But I work for myself, and and because I like my work. I have no employer, and that makes an en 1 1 rely different thing of labor Eight hours a day are quite, enough for continuous work of any kind. Most em ployers, heads of business houses and capitalists, who have the money-making fever, work more than that. But they also work for themselves. No one can find fault or discharge them or dock their wage if they happen to bo late or take a holiday. To be compelled to go to work at a certain hour and to icmaiii until the pre scribed .time as has already been stated, Is quite another story. I hop to live to s the time when bv Inventions and by new conditions the whole drudgery of the world's work will be dono on five hours' time and the hu man race allowed the remainder to grow, mentally and spiritually. As I came of a long-lived race on two sides, I may realize my drcacm, but the world will realize It some time, surely. When I think of the cotton mills, with their deafening roar and flying dust, where I have seen women working ten and twelve hours a day and begging positions for the children (and opposing any movement to prevent the employ ment of children ns I personally knew them to be); when I think of the feather factories and sweatshops nnd the thou sands of other manufactories whern no light of day ever penetrates and men, women and children are sacrificing eye sight and health on the altar of greed, I long to open all the doors and send the tollers forth to green fields and the woods for half of every working day; and I know the world would be better off and the progress of every race accelerated were It made possible for every toller In the land to enjoy three hours of rest every day In the open air. It Is becauso I want the tollers them selves to help make the world realize their need that the quoted lines were written The employer's objection to the shorter hour or labor Is understood as tho voice of Greed But when the glnshop and the gambling den. The dive, the public dance hall and the street Bend sodden creatures back to toll After the ending of a holiday It makes a louder protest tnan the voice Of tyrant Greed. I have seen a woman weep and have heard hor regret the announcement of an unexpected holiday for husband. lie was a workingman, a laborer. She knew the holiday meant the wast ing of his wages and the greater injury to his health than two days' work. It meant the glnshop and the gambling den. When an employer sees and knows of many similar results from holidays he Is strengthened In his arguments against tho shortening hours of labor. lie does, not stop to think of the thousands of women and the hundreds of sober and mortal men all about him who need the' added leisure to make home life worth the name. He does not consider the pitiable cases of poor fathers who love their children, yet who never see them save when they aro asleep. Nor tho numbers of wives and mothers rising at the dawn to prepare a break fast for husbands and sons who return at nightfall unable to do more than to fall Into exhausted sleep. For every argument against the move ment of shortened hours of labor there arc a dozen good ones In Its favor, but It Is n misfortune when the laboring man himself, by his bad habits during hours of leisure, makes a louder protest than the enemies of the movement are making. Iook to It that leisure lifts you ere you ask for more. S ' PbB BSSSSBSSjjBSSSsvl cultivated Isnis, teeming-with the ilchcst products of the sort; -and -that,, suddenly.

' Other writers of ancient limes men tioned tie legend uf'.tgst Atlantis. Solon, the 'Athenian sage and law giver, who lived nearly 00 yf)afa before Christ, is said to have heard about It dttr. tug his travels In distant lands. But en In his time (ho memory of the sunken continent had almost vanished and the traditions concernlng'lt wero con tradictory and uncertain. Yet. becauso they were so persistent and widespread, It Is reasonable to conclude, that there huppened In remote antiquity some over whelming cataclysm that powerfully nf fecled the Imagination of surviving man kind and made an Ineffaceable. Impres sion upon succeeding ages, Lord Bacon named one' of his most Im portant works "The, New Atlantis," and through all .llteraturo tho story of tho vanished continent has left Its traces. It li one of the greatest legends In human hlNtory. When tho new science of geology bo gan to be cultivated It. was thought, at first, that It furnished unquestionable corroboration of Plato's story, because It seemed to demonstrate that the seas and landB of this globe had often changed places In past tlmos; nnd. If that were so, evidently it was perfectly possible for a continent to have once occupied a large part of what Is now the Atlantic ocean.

The Headwaitress By HANK. 'Marie wants to bet me U that you're marrlrd," said the Headwaitress to the .Steady Customer. I -Why?" he asked. "Well, she says her brother Is a phiz, ology student ' "A what?" queried the Steady Cus tomer. "Why, he's a face expert," explained the Headwaitress, " a sort of parlor fly cop like this feller Shylock Holme. He can look at anybody's phis and tell you all about them. That's why they call It phlzology." "What Is there about my facs that makes Marie think I'm married?" as '.ted the Steady Customer "You'll hav to ask Marie, " replied the Headwaitress. "I figured you were single because the bottom button of your over coat hasn't been with you for two weks. and I'm willing to bet on my buttouology against all her phlzology. I don't bellev In that kind of stuff, anyway. Now you take that tall, dark, mysterious looking guy that comes In here with you some ties. I figured him to be a man with a awful past, a sort of gee-but-I-could-tcll-some-terrlble-thlngs-lf-I-wanted-to, bloke. When I first saw him I was willing to bet he'd call for black coffee and slnkerj In a hoarse voice. "And what did he do?" asked the Bteod Customer. "He asked me for a bowl of milk and crackers In the softest voice I ver heard," answered the Headwaitress, "and ended up with apologizing because he asked for a second glass tof water. Gee If all the b)okes that came In here as an polite as your friend, I'll hand em water enough to flood Dayton all over again if they asked for It." "Nevertheless, there is something In studying faces," said the Hteady Cus tomer. "When I chosp to sit at your table. Ixiulse, I figured from your face that you were an attentive, fun-loving girl, whose natural charms would go a great way to aid digestion." "You don't need no digestion. alder," said the Head Waitress; "what you need la a license, a collar nnd a chain, for I never seen anybody got away with sausages and mashed potatoes like you do. "Marie." said the Steady Customer to the cashier as he was paying his check, "what Is there about my face that made you bet I-oulec 1 was married. "A serious expression," answered Marie. "You are a very observing girl, said the Steady Customer. After she hns lived in the olty n while nlie will want.tu mako him overt I won der It he appreciates th treasure he Is winning!

I would give her a hat that Is a tor ture to tho head under It nnd a torment to ail who pit near, but that Is Indis. pensabln becnuse Its grotesquenest at tracts. I would, In brief, take Ih'i core In outfitting her that a sign painter ob terves In painting a cigarette sign: Any thing to catch the eyrs of the men. I wonder when she hns been made Into a "city lady," and nery charm of na tur has been tortured, suppressed, pinched, squeezed and painted into nil that Is hideous nnd unnatural. If "his " folks will be proud of her. If they are. then they nre the kind of relations one Is better off for not knowing. I wonder If tho inun who loves the mountain girl will lovn her Just an much when she has becomo a victim of tho prevailing city 'life epidemic. 1 doubt it and because I doubt It I want this little mountain girl to bring to her city home so much of the strength and purity of her native hills that the hypocrisy of the unaturul city life will never find room. The history of this great, old world wll prove that over since man left his mark upon it, tho rugged, the strong and the upright havo come from the mountains, and the weak and shifting and Indecisive have come from the plains. I do not want this little girl to be come contaminated by the lives of tho dwellers In the plains. I want her to be always honest and fearless and sincere.

But no generally accepted conclusions were reached, nnd more recently doubt lias been thrown upon the whole sub ject by tho growing belief that the earlier KculoKlsts exuggoraAed Jhe.. cx'citt ti which seas and lands liuyc changed places.
