LL. Portland society and lovers of
music are on the qui vive for
" the opening of the grand opera
tins evening. Gowns are being
freshened, here and there a new girdle
of a brilliant hue is added, or the
niore fortunate ones are preparing to
sparkle and scintillate in all the
splendor of crisp and fascinating new
gowns, and the elaborate jewels for
which few occasions in Portland call.
The wraps are coming in for their
share of attention, and be it known,
that a few are planning their gowns
to harmonize with their latest pos
session, a colored wig.
The rainbow wig lends itself ad
mirably to the brilliant and vari-colors
of the new fabrics built into gowns,
and, who knows, some one with suf
licitnt daring may appear in one of
the many-tinted coiffures.
Apropos of grand opera, San Fran
cisco society suffered keen disappoint
ment over the fact that the much
loved Mary Garden absolutely refused
all invitations for social affairs, owing
to an attack of grip early in the sea
son, necessitating rest and quiet to
save her strength for her work.
I-ast year Miss Garden was the
(truest of honor at several large affairs
given by prominent society folk in
San Francisco, who had anticipated
entertaining the celebrity again this
Spring. the has attracted consider
able attention wherever she has been
through her dress, which is as dis
tinctive as her individuality. She is a
glorious example that one's mode of
dressing is an index to character. She
is a lover of strong, intense coloring,
with little heed to fashion's latest
liotates. Her own personality is
catered to and the prevailing modes
are developed into Mary Garden crea
tions. Her jewelry also bespeaks her
own strong personality, excelling in
cjuality and design. Miss Garden
always carries a gold-headed cane
mornings and afternoons.
One of the prettiest affairs of this
week w:i.s the luncheon presided over

THE Council of Jewish Women held

address on "Higher Education for
"Less than a hundred years ago."
said Miss Rowland, "women who stud
ied geometry and Greek were looked
upon as queer.
"For the average girl who will
marry soon: for the average girl who
will have to support herself for a
while and who ultimately may marry;
for the unusually intellectual girl who
needs to have her mind directed In
appropriate channels, in fact, for every
girl, the higher education is desirable.
"Sudden changes of fortune come.
The sheltered woman is thrown upon
her own resources. She may have a
little family to support. Will not ade
quate training come In good place
"The tendency for the generation is
for the rhildren to outgrow their moth
ers intellectually. If the girls of to
day, the future mothers, are educated
their children will not have to go to
outsiders for information that a moth

Miss Rowland's address was followed
by a social hour. The annual election
of officers of the council will take
place next month.

Should Urn Wear Wedding Rlugxf
SHOULD men wear wedding rings?
I once asked the opinion of a
married man I know and he replied:
"Well. I don't wear a wedding ring
myself because er well. because a
ring would make me fidgety and nerv
ous. You know the majority of mar
ried men know they're married, so
why advertise the fact?"
Quite the sort of bland little speech
some men would find refuge in. Don't
you think so?'
Of course. I wouldn't for a moment
insinuate that because a nmn does not
wear a wedding ring he does not come
up to the standard of the ideal hus--band.
But. personally. 1 think all the
married members of the male sex
should wear wedding rings. Not be
cause I believe that the wearing a wed
ding ring would make a man more
true. For if he wished to be false not
even the chains of gold, would prevent
him from finding a way to deceive.
But I do think that in these matter
of fact and prosaic times we do not
allow sufficient sentiment to enter our
lives. And surely we should make an
exception in such a sacred matter as
Every woman regards with rever
ence that plain gold band which is
placed upon her finger at the altar by
the man of her choice. And I'm sure
that the majority of them would dear
ly love to see that same symbol adorn
ing the hand of their life's partner.
I once heard a man say: "I wear it
Just to please the little woman." Isn't
that just what every married man
No doubt you all know that the tra
dition concerning the wedding ring is
that owing to its circular nature it is
supposed to symbolize a never-ending
onion. To my Idea, when only tnv
woman wears the outward bond of
marriage the symbol is incomplete.

dearly loves me and I love her, but
not like I should love the one I marry.

that I must propose or quit writing.
What must I lo to let her know I am
going to quit writing? Just write and
tell her I don't love her enough or Just
quit writing? What would you do If
you were me? "PITIFUL."
I think that the best thing for yon
to do is to write her a very frank let
ter and tell her that since she does not
care for your friendship any more and
since you do not feel that you love her
well enough to marry her. at her re
quest you will atop writing to her. It
would be unfair of you to continue the

IK the end Marian decided to part
with her engagement ring rather
than fail to accept Ann Stewart's in
vitation to visit her at her studio.
Marian had purposely avoided her local
friends, rather than become the object
of their sympathy and curiosity as a
result of her divorce. But she felt dif
ferently toward the fascinating land
scape painter who wanted her to come.
Visiting a pawnbroker's Is a habit
and must be developed. The surge of
shame and chagrin that invades the
sensitive woman on her first few visits
to the counter of the money-lender,
makes these episodes gloomy and de
pressing events of life. Marian shrank
from the task, but set out on her mis
sion courageously. She had gone to a
similar destination once and could do
so again, thankful that she had some
thing of value to carry thither.
The loan shark bent Ills hooked beak
over the glittering stone and peeced
at its flashing facets through a micro
scope. "Vat you vant for it?" he demanded
thickly after a moment.
Marian knew that Frank had paid
$200 for It. After a swift mental cal
culation, she replied, questioningly :
"One hundred and fifty dollars?"
The money-lender threw up his hands
in dismay. "I couldn't do It." he
answered, shoving the ring back across
the counter toward his visitor. "I
couldn't get half that for it. Times
Is bad. Beeble ain't buying diamonds
dese days like dey used to. I ain't
got one call for a stone in a veek. I'll
give you 40 for it."
With a wave if disgust Marian seized
the ring and left the place. Forty dol
lars! The fellow's offer was an Insult.
She proceeded up the street, the same
thoroughfare with the diluted Rlalto
flavor which she had passed through
theretofore, and looked right and left
for the sign of the three gilt spheres
that denoted the place of the money
lenders. She paused In front of one
place. Its display windows gleaming
enticingly with precious stones, each
representing, she reflected, a tragedy
of life not unlike her own who could
This time she was offered $45 for
the ring, and again she left without
striking a bargain. Thrice different
shops she entered, to play the unwonted
role of haggling with the money sharks.
Never had the nice applicability of the
term "shark" Impressed her as now.
She laughed In the faces of the men
behind the counters when they made
absurd offers for the ring. Did their
grasping greed, she wondered, typify
the business principles of the world?
Never had she had a more striking ob
ject lesson of the fundamental business
rule of buying cheap and selling dear.
The cold, harsh, heartless, masculinity
of trade offended her feminine spirits
like an evil ghost. It rose before her
like a malign and brooding enemy, de
termined to exact much, willing to yield
At last, weary of haggling further,
she resolved to part with her engage
ment token. In exchange she recetved
$4S. It was the best bargain she was
capable of driving. The money, in of
fensive-looking bills, was peeled off
greasy roll by a pair of caressing claws
of hands, and she made her escape,
glad at any cost to obtain funds and
flee from the atmosphere of the loan
Departing, a prettier vision flew
Into her mind that of a gentle, quiet
artist's studio, tucked away among
the abodes of a snowy village. Like a
pleasant haven It called to her. She
longed to be on her way.
