Too Many Women Coddle Their Griefs By DOROTHY DIX. In all the many mistaken theories of life that - women hold there is none, perhaps, that has worked so much harm to themselves and others as the prevailing idea that there is something peculiarly feminine and angelic in cherishing and brooding over a sorrow. "Men must work, and women must weep, so runs the world away," says the poem, and women have faithfully believed that they were never so fully doing their full duty as when they were sit tine uo and sobbing into their best pocket hand kerchiefs. ' Indeed, the ability to grieve long, inconsolably and senselessly, has be come an exclusive feminine charac teristic, and women not onlv culti vate it in themselves, but they ad mire it in other women. They think well of a sister who "doesn't get over" things. They praise her whose heart Is buried in the grave of a worthless and drunken husband. They"-have a peculiar tenderness for spinsters who pine for forty or fifty years for the faithless lovers who deserted them and, in short, it may be said that a woman's ideal of her sex is a melancholy creature in bombazine and crepe, who, after some misfortune- never smiles again, A woman who is jolly, and who show a disposition to throw off trouble, and take a bright and cheery view of the world, is always re garded with suspicion by other women. It is this idea that a woman's tears are accounted unto her for righteous ness that causes women who formu late the laws of society to make a cult of grief. When a member of a family dies, custom causes the women of the household to shroud themselves in unwholesome black garments that are an ever-present reminder of their sorrow. They must darken the house and shut out God's blessed sunlight. They must lock the miano, that there may be no music to lighten their sad hearts; they must go nowhere save to the cemetery, where the sight of the new-made grave tears the wounds open afresh; they must see nobody except the old friends' and relatives, whos?" very sympathy quickens' the agony of memory and loss. " The result Is inevitable. The very touch and sight of the gruesome black clothes, the darkened and gloomy house, the absence of every thing that could distract one's atten tion from their sorrow, engenders a morbidness of grief in women that Fashion's Devotees and Professional Dressmakers ' will be invited to view' this 1 ' ; First . ; Authoritative Showing of the Most Favored Silks v-' 'V ..:t':- ' ' ; ,. -' .- Now, , when Fashion has awakened from her un certain mood regarding her favorites for Spring and Summer---we announce "the most com plete showing of Silks that occupy first place We cordially invite you . to view thi8 display maka' tlaw la ana laatancaa.

It is an unjust charge. Nobody who has ever loved and lost ever forgets, but men are wise enough to know that there is no merit in mak ing themselves needlessly unhappy or of brooding over hopeless sor rows, and so they deliberately go to work to distract their minds from their grief' while women devote themselves to feeding upon their sorrow. Bad as this is for the woman indi vidually and it wracks her nerves and ' darkens her days its worst phase is the injustice it does to oth ers, for in her loyalty to the dead a woman is often a traitor to the living. One of the saddest tragedies that I ever knew was the breaking up of a happy home through the death of a baby. To the mother all the joy and interest and happiness in the world seemed buried in the .tiny grave, and she spent her days and nights, for weeks and -.months,', sor rowing oyer the little bed arid weep ing over the little broken playthings.

This is unique because of the arrangement on the sides, for it flares from the sides, thus forming pockets and accentuating the barrel drape of the season. whom the coming of the baby had been but an incident, not the whole of life, and, while he grieved over its loss, it did not quench his interest in other things, and in a little while he wanted to go back to his old amusements and occupations.. . Absorbed . in her ' sorrow, and drowned in her tears, his wife refused to go with hint, and remained at home to nurse her grief. At first the husband tried to cheer her and com fort her, but by and by he became weary of her morbidness, and, tired of coming home to a melancholy wife and a gloomy house, he drifted away from her, until, all too late, the wife woke up at last to find that she had lost both husband and child. This is not an isolated case. Many a woman, in her grief over the death of her father or mother, forgets the duty she owes her husband and her children. Mant woman whose own heart is heavy goes about laying the burden of her grief on all she meets, for there is no selfishness like the sel fishness of sorrow, that is so ab sorbed in Its own woe that it is ready to sacrifice everything and every body to it.' li - women's tears andi entreaties could bring back their lost they would be justified in storming heaven with their lamentations, butjsince we can-' not win again our best beloved who have gone from us, it is surely better to make the living happy than it is to weep over the dead. i 1 Details will be published , . in Sunday's advertisements RES Advance models in women's spring shoes are ready ready to harmonize pleasantly with the many varied and novel effects of the new yogue in women's dress.

R. CROH. , - . " The wonderful recuperative power of the Americans and particularly of us western Americans struck me as I watched the clearing up of the de bris of the big fire at Fifteenth and Douglas streets. Scarcely were the ruins cold when many men with wagons were busy, hauling away the bricks and iron col umns and charred timbers, The second day after the fire there was still greater activity. - Signs told where the burned-out firms had estab lished temporary headquarters. A little house had' beer, built and even E aimed for the contractor's office. A ig sign stated "Laborers Wanted." Coils of steel cable and wagonloads of lumber were on the ground. it reminded me of a contrasting scene that a man whom I knpw very well witnessed in dear old Paris a few years ago. This man (whose name modesty forbids sue to men tion) wrote down his impression of the incident at the time, as follows: "A street car I was oh yesterday struck a truck slight blow. There was no damage except a tiny dent in the car's dashboard, but they kept the whole liile tied up for an hour, i . . The Mishap Ritual. ' "First they led the horse to one side and unhitched him from the truck. A number of gendarmes ar rived and solemnly examined the dent in the dashboard. They consulted gravely. Their manner seemed to say: 'The holocauat is terrible, but the republic still lives and Paris shall yet rise from this blow, even more beautiful than before,' One of the gendarmes measured the detyt and found it about thesize of his hand.

All druggists, , were explaining, with many gestures', to the excited crowd of citizens just how the accident had happened. The driver of the truck suddenly found himself a hero and was relating his awful, his overpowering feelings at the terrible moment of the impact. . "Presently arrived another officer, evidently of higher rank. He in spected the dent minutely. He mounted the platform and examined it from the other side. He pressed on the dent with. his finger tins, but found he could not push it back into shape. He seemed to wish to make a diagram of it or possibly take a plaster cast. I thought they were go ing to send for1 an artist to paint it and a sculptor to 'sculp' it But we finally proceeded." The Way of Paris. ; All this, please understand, is j merely by way of contrast and not derogatory to those dear French. For this man admires the French. He loves every gesture in their arms. He loves every waxed hair in their moustaches. And as for Paris! Ooo, la, la I It is, indeed, "la ville du monde." Paris wouldn't be Paris if her people didn't act just as they did act in this case. But the point is that we, here in America, accept facts without super fluous discussion and lose no time in , repairing disaster. The tornado" is . another example of the same thing. .
