Rev. Hill Telia Some Trntha About
Women of the Smart. (Jet. " ;
To have had a number of husbands Is
a credential for women of the smart set.
Just as a number of automobiles, and
the more husbands the better the cre
dentials, said Rev. Everett M. Hill at
the Taylor Street Methodist' church last
night, speaking on the aublect "The
Toung Woman of the Smart Sat." ., ,
Dr. Hill eald in part: ,
"There Is a smart set today as there
was in the days of tha woman of Sa
maria. Not only was she marked off as
a prototype of the modern young wo
man of the smart set because ahe waa
Influential In the aoclal whirl, but be
cause of her possessions In the ahape of
husbands. We do not hear of her hav
ing any children, aa that would not bo
tha proper credential for the smart set,
but any number of husbands , la all
rlarht. the more the merrier. Husbands
to the women of the smart set in some
localities are like automoDiies, tney act
In a way aa credentials, while children
are not to be thought of, as they would
act as a nernetual prohibition to social
distinction.. According to an Incident
related by President Roosevelt at a
Gridiron club dinner, the woman of the
smart set must have possessions in the
following proportions: in servants, is
horses 11 dogs, 11 automobiles and only
"If women want excitement Instead
of manufacturing It la the social whirl,
they will find plenty of it rearing chil
dren. These are the llnka that bind hus
band and wife closer together,- the an
chors that lay hold on the moorings of
heaven and righteousness, the priceless
treasures of the home, the bank account
upon which- unknown generations shall
draw. When some Roman matrons were
displaying their golden ornaments and
Jewels to each other, one of them arose
and eald, "Com. with ma and I will
show you riches.' Taking them to her

Interested In what la to be rather than
