F there be any one whone power
Is In beauty, la purity, lu good
ness, It 1b a woman."
It U every woman's desire
to be loved and even la her most In
discreet moDientH, could you get to the
heart c1 the matter, you woiiid discov
er that she Is only seeking admiration
ad affection. This Is more trans
parent with the growiuK girl, because
he has not yet learned to hide hor
footings, and In consequence doe
tuany rash things.
This Is the reason why she flirts, ei
ohaoges pictures and jewelry, and al
lows familiarities with boys of whom
she knows very little.
The parent Is either too weak-minded
or tguorant to lutluence her daugh
ter In tho right direction, or she goes
to the other extreme and forbids all In
toroourse wtlh boys.
The first course permits the girl to
take any liberties with her home and
Its hospitalities, and, having no respect
(or her mother's judgment and pos
sessing none herself, she welcomes
anybody she happous to meet.
The second course Is even more
blnmable. A normal girl seeks Inter
course with boys, and will get It
whether her parents approve or not.
Hue will meet them at other girls'
houses, or even worse, ou the Hlreets,
and, having no power of discrimina
tion, results are often disastrous.
It Is the mother's duty to see that
her daughter meets the right men.
l'lven if this side of her uuturu devel
ops early, due, perhaps, to environment
or companions she would do butter to
allow the boys than to refuse hor
daughter thulr companionship. Sht
can and should dtscrlmlnuto, however,
mid so exercise a stronger Influence
J than otherwise on the girl's life.
. There comes a time when the prin
ciple of life should be explained by tho
mother to her daughter. She herself
knows best wheu this time arrives, and
never should she shirk what is per
Iiaps her highest duty. Many who call
I themselves "mother" shrink from Ills.
I Halving their consciences with the
I thought that It Is unwomanly to speak
f o( such a subject, thereby for cing the
! child to learn from outside soiirtes.
i The mother Is Ihu girl's uearest and
I dearest fr.cnd. and she alone can pre
sent this knowledge iu a delicate way,
ifar better than cuu a doubtful book, or
u girl friend. If there were less retl
. vonce about such matters between
I mothers aud daughters, there would be
less freedom between boys aud girls,
' and more properly placed modes')'.
It Is the mother who can best ex
j plain to her daughter why kissing, lu
ilself perfectly proper, is better re-
(used to a man until the ideal Is fouud,
I aud an cugagemcul exists. If the
I mother be au up-to-dutc woman lu oth
' er respects, her daughter will respect
' tier opinion lu this matter, also.
Every girl has an ideal woman. She
may be the heroine of a book, a crea
ture of her mind, or a real woman; no
matter, she must be beautiful. liut
does she analyse her further, demand
lug for her beauty of speed aud action,
1 graciousness of mauner. stralghtutas
of mind and desire?
It is a good plan to spend a short
time each day iu thought, livery girl
of growlug age Indulges In "dreams,"
so she can spare a little time to pic
ture the attrlbues of her ideal woman,
Hhe should mako It a plan to model
herself dally upon her Ideal, and she
will Aud herself improving, but even
then she will have work to do, for her
Ideal has not been standing still, but
advancing as she progresses.
Girls, cau you Imagine your Ideal
flirting on street comers, exchanging
pictures cr lings with men whom she
has met perhaps once, kissing boys
who place no value ou what should bit
precious privilege? Can you Imaglue
her losing her womanly dignity to
"chase after" a boy who is already
tired of her looltshneisr
Or do you picture her attracting
through shear torce of character as
well as personality? Don't you want
her to refuse overtures of affection
from Tom, Dick and Harry, and Iteep
her heart In reserve for the one man
who is worthy of both her respect and
love? I ora sure that you do. And as
kurely as you want your ideal to be
have In this manner, so you will act
, yourself.

Pi ERE man condescends to give
II some of his conclusions about
al the "opposite sex." It Is soms--tlmea
worth a woman's while,
In such a case, to listen and ponder,
atuce a mere man often gets a point of
view the "opposite sex" misses. This
particular mere man Is the successful
advertising representative of a well
known magazine, and has something to
say about women in business. For a
long time, he relates, he tried to find
a satisfactory secretary. He couldn't
make out why so many were unsatis
factory till after considerable observa
tion and experience.
First, he says, by way of appeasing
woman for his criticism, he told in
terms of highest praise of the secre
tary ho flDally found a glorious ex
ception to the rule he laid down for
women In biminess. He raises this
girl's salary yearly and he wilt keep
her as long as he can.
"She gives to work all her thinking
energy In office hours and..I should
ludge from the results of her work,
half her thinking energy out of hours.
Thore Is the secret of ber being satis
factory. She manages to keep well, so
that she can put hor thought on the
service she is paid for.
"As a result of centering her irdnd
on the business she has developed the
ability to dive down into her brain and
bring up an idea every now and then
that goes to make a success nf ber
work and mine, and so of the depart
ment in general. Immediately after
she came to me she entered a course
In advertising on her own Initiative to
make herself better able to cope with
the needs of nn advertising depart
ment. She reads the magazine every
mouth, not merely the stories, but all
the ads. When her Intuition tells her
I am ready for a suggestion she Is
ready to give It, without any offlclous
ness or any nf the sweetly feminine
tricks of managing me.
"Not lung ago the magazine put
stress on Are insurance and fire pro
tection advertising. The last minute I
was puzzling to All a page. My sec
retary asked if I had solicited a cer
tain manufacturer of metal doors. I got
the ad. man of that Arm on the wire
to open negotiations. Iu a flash my
secretary was out of the room and
back aga'u, thrusting before my eyes
the design of that month's cover that
I hadn't seen nor known about. It was
a "corker' for a Are advertising Issue
and gavo me the Inspiration for an
additional talking point that clinched
that contract. That's merely onu In
stance to show shes.altve and truck
ing." Then this mere man ushers In his

dishes often need to be

dish towels, otherwise she will be mor
