AMERICA IS LAND FOR WOMEN
"But, Lc Roux Says, Men Exnlt Tlicni
So They Look Down on Mule
PARIS, July 23. "England Is the
'country for men; France for men and
women, and America for women,"
said to the World correspondent to
day Hugues Lo Roux, whose new
liook, "Love in America," 13 being
"Men slave In America," he went
on. "They put the women in a high
place. They send them to universi
ties, "where learning has not so much
charm for them as for the freedom
of life they enjoy, a sort of Dohe
xilanlsm without reproach. Their
culture gives them tastes American
men cannot share; hence many or
.these young educated women despise
the men who made them what they
are. They come to Europe, attracted
partly by titles, partly by the life of
tradition which marks old countries.
' "In France tho old customs and
traditions have been so adapted that
they bring out everything that Is best
.in feminine charm. American wo
moh have more freedom but less hap
piness. "The most unfortunate women in
the world are the English women.
The biography of a respectable Eng
lish woman would read like this:
" 'She married and drank tea." "
Mr. Lo Roux remarked that his
meeting with President Roosevelt
made a great Impression on him, but
"he thinks that In many respects Mr.
ZRoosevelt Is too. narrow minded, too
Puritanical; tries to make all persons
conform too much to one model.
Tho president's daughter Alice
seemed -to him to be a "fine specimen
of a girl educated In liberty; for Mrs.
Hoosevelt had such a fear of step
motherly harshness that she exer
cised no restraint on Alice, who, thus
in a sense was not brought up at
.all, hence the delightful originality
of her character."

MME. MIDZUNO. I
Japaness Consul's Wife Tells How
Matches Are Made In Mikado's Land.
"Americans fall In love and then
marry: the Japanese marry and then
fall In love."
This is the statement of tho wife of
Kokikochl Midzuno, the Japanese con
sul general. She recently arrived from
her native land and Is living at present
at the Barnard, 100 Central Park West,
New York city.
"Why do American women tire of
their husbands?" she asked as she
brewed tea and ordered cake.
"American women," she said, "ought
to slop and think of one of our old
songs. The words of it run like this:
I want to live to lie ninety-nine years.

persons are introduced. Maybe they
do not love nt first, but after nwhile a
great and tender affection steals upon
them. Wives In Jnpan are content
with their husbands for years and
"Too many husbands Is not a happy
thing," she declared. "The American
women should be more content and
not crave so much excitement. They
should have wise people to choose for
them their mates and not go so sudden

Quaint Dental Wisdom.
In every age writers have occupied
themselves with dental hygiene, and an
old writer at the end of the sixteenth
century quaintly condenses dental wis
dom as follows:
"If you want to guard the teeth
against all accidents, external as well
as Internal, to Ucep them beautiful and
useful to the end of a long life, take
care not to put Into tho mouth any
thing too hot or too cold.
"Do not eat meat that Is hard or dif
ficult to digest.
"Do not drink any liquor with effer
"Do not eat sweet or sticky things,
nor break with the teeth anything that
is hard, nor drink wine or water too
cold, as many do during the beat of
summon Avoid soups that are too
"After you have eaten, wash tho
mouth Immediately with somo harsh or
rough wine to prevent decay. When
you cat, do so on both sides of tho
mouth., Do not favor one sldo mora
than tho other.
"Figs, sugar and other things which
aro Inclined to soften or try tho teeth
are bad and unwholesome"
There Is one golden rule -that saya,
"After eating, rinse the mouth," and
another, "Brush the teeth night and
Dainty women do this three nnd four
times a day. It becomes second nature
In brushing, do not use too largo a
brush or too stiff bristles. See that
the surface of the brush Is well round

Tho Ideal way to brush Is from tho
gum toward the end of tho tooth,
downward for tho upper jaw and up
ward for the lower. In brushing

Prominent specialists claim that spin
ach Is tho most precious of vegetables
on account of Its medicinal nnd
strengthening properties. Its emollient
and laxative virtues, owing probably
to the salt of potash It contains, h ive
long been known. It Is excellent for
the liver and as a consequence fresh
ens the complexion.
The chemist Kungo has proved that
spinach and the yolk of an egg are
proportionately richer In digestible and
assimilable iron than many remedies.
The great value and growing Impor
tance are shown In the fact that spin
ach Is already an nctive Ingredient In
several new and vnluable tonics.
Onions, it Is maintained by experts,
are almost tho best nervine known
They are most useful In cases of nerv
ous prostration and will greatly assist
In giving tone to the system.
They are useful In cases of coughs,
colds and Influenza. Eaten every oth
er day they soon have a brightening
and clearing effect on the complexion.
Balzac and the Thief.
A story, said to be new, of Balzac is
related by a French contemporary. A
burglar gained admission to Balzac's
house and was soon at work by the
light of the moon at the lock of the sec
retaire In the novelist's chamber. Bal
zac was asleep at the time, but the
movements of the Intruder aroused
him. The burglar, who was working
most Industriously, paused. A strident
laugh arrested his operations, nnd he
beheld by the moonlight the novelist
sitting up In bed, his sides aching with
"What Is It that makes you merry?"
demanded the burglnr.
"I laugh," replied the author of
"Pere Gorlot," "to think that you
should come In the night without a
lantern to search my secretaire for
money when I can never tlud any
tbcro In broad daylight"
A Time Saving Device.
If .you like to change your dress
shields frequently, but dislike the time
It takes, try this method:
Sew on each end of the shield one
half of a dress snap and on your corset
cover, to correspond, the otner hair.
When you want to wear a fresh pair
of shields all you have to do Is to
"snap" them in place. It Is as quickly
and easily done as fastening your
glove. They stay as firmly as though
sewed, nnd they do not rust or tear out
us when pinned. Alwnys get your
shields of one size, so that any pair of
shields will fit any corset cover. After
you have the dress snaps once sewed
in your trouble of changing shields is
ended. It will take little more tlmo
than getting n fresh handkerchief.
Scent In Ribbon Bows.
Scented ribbon bows to be worn at
night are the newest things In Paris.
Between two layers of ribbon Is placed
a sandwiching of scented wadding.
Tho hair is confined loosely with tho
ribbon, which not only perfumes tho
hnlr, but brings pleasant dreams to tho
wearer, say sentimental maids. The
high wired lace stock Is mode a holder
of sachet powder. The stock has a
rim of velvet Between this and tho
lace there Is an Interlining of chiffon,
and within this Is the perfumed dust
Craving For Sympathy.
Some nervous, highly strung wives
cultivate a craving for sympathy and
an astonishing amount of self pity
when really there la nothing In the
world for (hem to be sorry about
It Is nlc to know that husbands and
friends are ready to sympathize with
us In our Joys and sorrows, but sympa
thy Is good only In small doses.
Too much of It tokos tho strength
and backbone out of character, Just as
living In heuted rooms and sleeping on
feather beds weaken the body.
An Exoellent Hair Wash.
An excellent hair wash Is to take
one ounce of borax nnd one ouuco of
powdered camphor and dissolve In a
I'lnt of boiling wator added to cold
water In a bowl. Tho camphor will
form into lumps, but a sufficient
amount will dissolve. This will
