(Dorothy Dix.)
It Is to bo feared that this Is a
uniquo ago that takes- ito Lent lightly.
Nowadays when wo don our sackcloth
It Is silk lined, nnd all our ashes arc
ashes of roses; nevertheless, Lent Is
a time when the thoughts of oven the
most worldly turn to righteousness,
and thus wo aro enabled to observe
one of tho most remarkable phcnom
cna of tho feminine toniporament
woman'es ability to bo good by proxy,
This Is a distinctly femlnlno accom
plishment When a man thinks about
being good ho begins with himself.
Ho stops drinking, or swearing, or
playing poker, or whatevor his par
ticular vlco wa?. When a woman do
cldes on lending tho higher life sho
turns the batteries of her noblo reso
lutions and directs her reform against
somebody else. Sho doesn't evon con
template giving up gossiping, or
bridge, or bargain sales, or tho thing
that was her besotting sin. On tho
contrary, she contrives to enjoy hor
own llt'lc vices In peace nnd content,
but sh devotes all her onergy and
zeal to trying to mako her husband
quit smoking, or givo up his modest
glass of beer, and sho feels that sho
Is entitled to a hlghor placo among
those who havo performed works of
supererogation If sho enn harass htm
Into resigning from his club.
Anxiety for Hep Brothers' Soul.
If further proof were wanted of wo
man's noblo and altruistic naturo It
could be found In tho fact that all tho
great reforms Inaugurated by women
havo had tho suppression of tho vices
of men for their object, nnd this, too,
when thoro was plenty of need of her
looking to hor own fonco. It has
never yet occurred to tho woman re
former to tacklo tho vices of her own
vx. All of women's anti-societies deal
with tho things that they aro opposed
to men doing. You never hoar of tho
Woman Temperance Talking union,
or the Mothor's Loaguo for Suppress
ing Dad Children, or tho Antl-Gaddlng
society, yet tho abuso of tho tongue
has dono as much harm in tho world
as the abuso of liquor, and thro
are no other wrongs coropnrablo with
the crlmo of raising up bnd and
polled children, and maintaining an
111 kept homo.
It Is a soothing nnd unsolflsh Idea
that our brothers' souls need our at
tention more than our own, and so,
during Lent, whon all of tho fomlnlno
ethical socIoUob got busy, wo aro
treated to tho amusing spectacle of
hordes of reformers who aro onjcyj
lie all of the sacrod pleasures of be
ing reformed without any of the pen
alties of giving anything up that thoy
wanted to do. and who are filled with
feeling of solf-rlghteous virtue be
cause they have formod a league to
abolish betting In poolrooms, or chew
log tobacco, or something that thoy
ner did anyway

Self-sacrifice has always been re
garded as woman's star virtue, but
even in this ho gonerally manages
to sacrlflco somebody else Instead of
herself. It Is tho snmo spirit that
prompted Artcmus Ward, In a burst
of patriotism, to declaro that ho was
willing to sacrlflco all of his wlfo's
relations to put down tho rebellion.
Women aro unconscious of this, but

sho Is too lazy to dress, and whon
you hear ono assort that sho believes
In plain living and high thinking, and
that sho sets hor faco against tho
pleasures of tho tablo, you may rost
assured that sho Is a dyspoptio who
has no appetito anyway.
