Ileal friendship results In e n-nnc of

My true friend
never comes to me
with the belittling
and chuhcIoss posslp
which he hears about
me. He never says,
"1 know you v ill not
care," and then re
lates sonio villous
lie Invented by the
mind of envy. He
never tells me any
thing dlsiiftreeaMo
unless it Is to warn
ie on .ut me on my guard against a
sprrct enemy or ugalnst my own Im
prudence. He tells me the kind and
l)eaant wcrds he hears spoken of me
and takes as much pleasure in hearing
them ns ! do. And he defends me In my
absence even against an army of ac
cusers. lie wiil sny things to my fare which
he would not H-y or permit to be said
behind my bark.
Friendship of the highest order should
banish all wenrisome restrictions and
forinulitif s. If 1 happen to drop In on my
ntaie.t friend as she Is preparing to go
out with another, she should feel free
to go with no fear that I will be hurt or
feel sliRiited. The moment this fear of
wounding our friends In such matters
creeps ii it is no longer or not yet an
!ilso fi icndMiip.
We ran bear with the Tyrannies and
anxieties, feun and turmoils of love, but
the caliper pleasures of friendship are
jeopardized if wi permit these other
emotions to mar them.
love is like the mid-ocean, grand,,
beautiful and terrible, full of delight
and danger, and friendship should be
like I he calm bay w here we rest, nnd do
no! fear; It ennnot give us the exhilara
tion of love and It must not give us the
anxieties.
AVe feel rented nnd strengthened after i
an Interview with a real friend, never

The worthy and worth-while friend j
never chides us for not If v lng him enough I
nor begs to be loved more; he makes
himself so deserving and so unobtrusive
that we needs must give him gratitude
and affection.
The wlso friend never weighs us with
his friendship never burdens ua with
feelings that he cannot live wtihout our
constant devotion. It Is the privilege of
love alone to do that.
Iove may learn and cling forever.
And forever grow more dear.
Rut friendship must sometime stand
upon Its own feet or we tire of It.
If my friendship Is absolute I will stand
by my friend In trouble, danger nod dis
gracenot upholding him In the latter,
but holding him from sinking lower. It
he resents my restraint, however, and Is
determined to sink, I do not prove my
friendship by sinking with him. t only
prove my own moral weakness. Better
let go my hold and save my strength to
assist another w-ho wants my help.
If he will not heed my advice, or coun
sel, but Insists upon associations and ne
tlons which Injure him. I only blacken
my own record and weaken my power to
aid others If I stand by him. Friendship
to one's higher self should not be sacri
ficed in a mistaken sense of devotion to
another. Neither should I ask my friend
to go down into the valley of despair
with meho will be a truer friend If he
stands above the sunlight a ad strives to
lift me up beside him.
I do not want my friend to constantly
urge me to accept favors, but when, in
my hour pf need, I ask a favor, I want
him to grant It with the air of one who
is the recipient rather than the giver.
Neither do I want him to refuse favors
on the ground of being unable to repay
me, since real friendship finds payments
In the bestowing of favors. And always
I want him loyal, trusting and sincere
in word and act; as liberal, as loving, as
free from Jealousy as he is full of Jus
tice, ready to praise and not afraid to
reprove.

"You must be my niodeJI" he excitedly
Inlormed her. "1 will pay you any price

from his pocket, he thrust them In her
hand. "Now stand here." He was so
ouick, so energetic, so fired with Impa
tient fervor, trial June nau no nmo m (
think, much less protest. He half led,
half pulled, her on the small dais which
he hastily shoved into position. He
caught up a sharp knife, it would not
do. He ran to a workbasket in the alcove
and brought hack a long pair of shears
and with one clip slit the filmy negligee
ttt the shoulder.
At that moment the portieres opposite
tlie big canvas opened far enough to re
veal the dark, handsome face of the
black Vandyked Gilbert Blye.
Toward the Durban house there dashed
two automobiles, the electric of Honorla
Ulye and the Moore family car, with the
parents anil husband of June and her
bosom l'llend. Iris Blethering and Bobble.
Murle and Officer Dowd were tiuddenly
Interrupted in their leisurely stroll by a
loud yelp, and a white and brown streak
threw Itself against Marie. Bouncer! He
barked; he circled; he ran up the street
a little way. ran back and darted off
again.
"Miss Junle!" cried Marie, and, clutch
ing Officer Iowd by the sleeve, she ran
up the street after the dog.
Vivian Durban, her chin tilted, her face
serene, her stop deliberate and leisurely,
came Into the studio. Whatever she had

The exquisitely molded runaway bride,
diaped like the Spirit of the Marsh, stood
upon the dais.
"Oh!" the word was a shriek. Vivian
Durban rushed down the length of the
studio, towering with rage. "Ho that's
it!" she cried. "That's why you brought
this crcuturc here!"
Vivi!" protested the artist.
"Out of my house!" the woman
screamed at June, her fingers working
convulsively. "Out of my house this min

ened June.
"Here!" Bennett Durham caught his
v. ife's arm and held her hack.
She stopped, and slowly her chin went
up. flhe turned on him coldly.
"Klther that creature leaves goes In
stantly er you go! This Is my house!"
With a low try June had darted across
tn.i studio, clasping tier gausjr draperies

the smirking butler, "whose furtive eye
leered at her.
Faint dused, scarce knowing what she
did. June, draped as. the Spirit of the
Marsh, slipped out of the house and Into
the street.
The artist and his wife went to the
porch and watched the girl flutter away.
The woman turned to Durban. "You're
In love with her," she snapped.
Around the corner, two blocks away,
tore the Moore car, with Ned Warner
peering intently ahead- Prom the op
posite direction came Honorla BIye's
electric. In front of the Durban door
stood a luxurious limousine with the
black shades drawn. Gilbert Bley's!
As June dashed down the steps the door
of the car opened, and the white mus
tached Orln Cunningham sprang out and
caught June by the wrisL Another fig

upon the beautiful Spirit of the Marsh.

Advice to Lovelorn
By SSATBZOB TAZMTAX i
Xom Moat Deride.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I know two young
!a!ies and believe I could have either for
the asking. One is Kngltsh with little
education, while the other Is well edu
cated. While I heartily love the Briton, I find
the American a more interesting com
panion, as her education has enabled us
to hold nieny a pleasant Interchange of
ideas. When I'm with the other 1 have
to do all the talking, except when wi
discuss personal matters. THOMAS.
How can you think of entrusting to a
stranger tiie choice of a wife for you?
What do you mean by love? f you mean
that the less well-educated girl appeals
to your senses and starves your mind, I
can hardly advise you to marry her. Nor
do I advocate a marriage on a purely
intellectual basis. I have an Idea that
your admiration for yourself la too
great to admit of your having an honest
and abiding love for either girl.
FAlKFAJt.
Have you nhe tired business man
type of mind whloh Insist on gayety for
relaxation and la ready to be entertained?
Does your dally reading consist of the
headlines in the newspapers?' Do you
carefully omit, In your perusal all edi
torials, and ars you particular not to
read the serious. Instructive articles
which the magazines offer you? Do you
Ignore all the world of literature In which
poetry, the drama, essays, and charm
ingly written biographies, histories, works
of science and philosophy lie?
Heading worth-while things Is honestly
nothing more or less than a question of
getting the habit.
I know a young woman who proudly
boasted that she had read none of the
classlo novels. 'And then someone gave
her Victor Hugo's "Notrs Dame." Feel
ing that she owed it to the donor to read
tho book she set about what she sup
posed was going to be a very dry task.
Here Is the confession she made to me:
"I found as thrilling a romance, as
fascinating a love story as any of my
favorite 'best sellers,' had ever given me.
Then, too, I discovered a real philosophy
back of the story. I found myself Inter
ested in the discussion of architecture
and In the description of old Paris. My
goodness, when I got through with that
book I was fairly Inspired to go off and
study architecture, .the. history of the
church, the dresses and customs of the
fifteenth century, and the chronicles of
Margaret of Flanders. And I giro you
my word that I found reading the ordi
nary love story about as interesting as
drinking hot water In place of a fragrant
cup of coffee."
There is the testimony of an average
girl anent the classical novel versus the
parsing romance.
Beading merely for amusement be
comes rather aptialllng amusement to any
mind that Is at all ambitious. Reading
for Instruction Is by no means a dull
and dry affair. You simply have to
know what to read. Cast about In your
mind for something In which you are In
tcrested for every thinking human being
has surely dne major inter and several
minor ones. Suppose you like music. Go
to the nearest public library station and
atk for suggestions as to reading along
this line.
Hven If your interest is merely in the
J melody of popular songs, you will find
yourself delighted by the wonderful
fortitude of Beethoven's life, for In
stance; by the romance of Mozart s, or
by the magnificent rapacity for work of
Abbe Franz I Just.

May women go to war?
and have and do.
Clara, Barton did. She spent more
years on the battlefield than did
Von Moltke, Grant, . ,
Sherman or Hherl-
dan.
Clara Barton ad
ministered to our
soldiers through
out the civil war.
Shs w n t to
Europe to forget
America's war and
found herself amid
tbs horrors of the
Franco - Prussian
battlefields.
Ths clincher to
the whole round
of arguments In
opposition to
woman suffrage la
the platitude:
Women cannot go
to war, therefore.
they must not bs allowed to vote."
And again, "Ths final teat of citizen
ship Is the ability to defend one's country."
I. heard a man say, "How It would
look to see a reglmt nt of women making
charge.."
And his 'audience laughed.
But a regiment of' women' have made
charge, and neither the women who
mad the charge nor the "enemy"
laughed.
When women fight they do so to save
their children, their homes, their town,
their country. Theirs Is a fight for freedom.
Women go to war, as did Clara Barton,
organizers of relief service, as nurses,
aa assistants to surgeons, as protectors,
as mother.
Do women think of the dangers of the
battlefield? No more than do men. It
U the mother spirit which Is aroused
and active In women In war time.
Ths mother Is the sacrlflcer. She does
not think of her own ssfety when her
child is lu danger.
Women who come to the relief of the
wounded on the battlefield. In hospital
tents, ars not there for ths abstract
something which ws coll "patriotism."
They are there to relieve suffering, to
minister to the sick, to take cars of and
save ths lives of ths people who make a
nation, who sra the state.
This does not mean that woman 'loves
the state less, but she loves humanity
mora.
The quarrel? That sinks Into oblivion
whsn men are stretching out arms for
help and she can save them.
Confederate pain, federal pain, Prus
sian pain, F.ngllsh pain I'ain la pain to
woman. Jew or OenlU bond or free,
are all one to her.
fain creates a democracy In the hearts
of mothers.
And here Is the only compensation that
I can see in war, that 1. nuinbles our
pride. It brings us bock to primitive
conditions, to natural living and pure
hearts if we are wholesome.
But the women on the battlefield, the
women In the hospital tent, or hospital
buildings, the women who are nursing
wounded and sick who have been re
turned to their native country for car.
ars not those who suffsr must iu Urn
of war.
Suffering Is not alone a matter of phys
ical hardships.
The keenest suffering a woman can
endure Is that which Iter taiaatnalloii
makes her suffer.
Her home life Is broken when hus
band, brothers, the men of her house
hold, are taken from her.
All the happy routine which inadu
home is broken.
Her leisure is not occupied by thoughts
of hone and anticipation of pleasure. She
Is not looking for the homecoming. Her
anticipation Is of fearful news that may,
will come.
She reads the lists of wounded and
killed. She watches to see what regi
ments are engaged In battle. The head
lines, "Great Loss of Life In Battle Now
Going On!" makes the world turn inky
black for her, and ths blood recedes from
her heart.
There is not an experience on the
battlefield that she has not lived . In
Imagination.
Ths pale crippled soldier's life Is broken
no more than hers.
She has endured all the physical hard
ships that ths majority of wives and
mothers are called upon to endure when
the family provider has gone to war.
And added to these hardships, she has
to endure every tragedy that the Imagina
tion can conjure forth. Do women go
to war?
Wherever there la war women are par
ticipants In It. For when men are sorely
wounded they lie where they fell, and
there Is a limit to physical suffering.
When they fall on the battlefield they
sleep to wake no more.
But there la no limit to the pictures
which the Imagination conjures forth,,
day and night, forever, and as long as tha
woman lives.
Her war ka never over. The battles are
never finished for her.
For her there Is never victory, uo mat
ter who wins.
Her heart Is broken, her life is maimed.
For the woman must live on and on,
and on.
There may be a reason why women
should not vote, but the silly statement,
"Women should not be allowed to vote!
because they cannot fight," Isn't It?
