"Bellefonte, Pa., November 3, 1922.
By L. A. Miller.
It is an undeniable fact that there
has been more written on love than
any other topic since the world began,
and as the population of the world in-
creases and the inhabitants thereof
grow in knowledge, more and more
will be written on it. The simpering
school girl sends love missives to the
boy she fancies most; the little Miss
just budding into womanhood can
think of no other topic for an essay;
the young lady who has donned long
dresses and stands on the threshhold
of the society world, writes of it in all
her letters to schoolmates and friends;
the lady who begins to cast furtive
glances over her shoulder to see what
she has passed, writes in the sands as
she pensively, yet impatiently, waits
to be fatally wounded by Cupid; the
spinster writes page after page to
prove it a myth, a delusion, a snare,
herself being witness that there is no
such thing; the trembling hand of age
writes of it as a silvered page that is
ever, ever bright and fresh, even when
other pages have grown dim and mus-
ty. Thus from childish youth to child-
ish age love is woman’s dearest theme.
With the conversing, I forget all time;
And seasons and their changes, all please
So spoke our general mother, and with eyes
Of conjugal attraction unreproved
And meek surrender, half embracing lean’d
On our first father; half her swelling
Naked met his under the flowing gold
Of her loose tresses hid; he in delight,
Both of her beauty and submissive charms,
Smil'd with superior love. :
Milton evidently had a notion that
women are inferior to men, even in
the matter of love, else he would not
have spoken of Adam deigning to
smile on Eve with “superior love.” As
a rule, poets seem to think that wom-
en can love harder than men, and
that theirs is a purer and more un-
selfish love than man’s. Possibly Mil-
ton was a little too much soured with
the world to write serenely on such a
theme. He gives woman credit, how-
ever, for wondrous power over man.
Adam was influenced against his pow-
erful kowledge. So it is yet, and so
it will ever be. Before Adam was,
love was; and when the last of Ad-
am’s race shall have departed, love
will still walk the cold, dead earth,
fearful that some living thing may
have escaped the general doom and
exists unlured.
As a rule men are bigger fools in
matters pertaining to love than wom-
en. Before labelling this statement
“a mistake” stop and think a little.
Do you not know of more men who
have committed suicide on account of
love affairs than women? Have you
not known of men making spectacles
of themselves on account of being
“cut out” or going wrong because of
“a cross” in the love wires, than wom-
en? Statistics show that there are
more men sent to insane asylums by
that conscienceless little busybody, cu-
pid, than women. Can you think just
now of as many women of your ac-
quaintance who have gone to the bad
on account of love as you can of men?
As women are particularly loud in
their clamors for justice at this time,
would it not be a strong point in their
favor to show that in this matter of
love they are stronger-minded and
more level-headed than men?
Much of the stuff that passes cur-
rent for love is nothing more than
sickness. In many respects it is sim-
ilar to sea-sickness, coming on sud-
denly, debilitating both body and mind
and making the victim miserable.
The love-sick swain is just as pit-
iable a sight as the sea-sick tourist.
Neither cares whether the sun ever
rises or sets again. They want to die,
and occasionally when nature refuses
to accommodate them they take the
affair into their own hands.
For genuine love the homeopathic
system of treatment is the only one
that will ever prove availing. Love
is the disease and love the remedy.
There are many cases where a dose of
blue mass or some other efficient liver
regulator is indicated. This may seem
silly, but it isn’t as silly as it seems;
it is a positive fact. Then there are
dyspeptics who think themselves in
love when in reality it is only irrita-
bility of the pneumogastric nerve.
The sensation is reflex, which accounts
for its not being readily traced to the
stomach. If lovers feel the inflatus
most during an hour after eating they
may safely suspect that it is due to
flatulency; but it is worse when the
stomach is empty; it is probably due
to irritation of the pneumogastric
nerve. No one should marry while
troubled with either dyspepsia or liver
complaint, as there is great danger of
the passion disappearing with the dis-
If, during the attack, a man hasn’t
a good advisor he is liable to make a
fool or wreck of himself, because he
may propose and be accepted and go
out and tell everybody he knows that
he is the happiest man in the world.
He is happy, or at least he enjoys the
peculiar sensation that possesses him.
It is an indefinable sensation which at
first is most enjoyable, but as it grows
older it seems to take on a tinge of
misery. One moment the victim will
swear that he is the happiest of the
happy, and the very next that he is the
most miserable of the miserable.
Queer, isn’t it?
The larger half of marital infideli-
ty is due to mistaking biliousness for
love, and the other half to causes
equally as avoidable as this. The love
that makes one sick is not the kind
that yields a continuous supply of hap-
piness, and, as a rule, the more violent
the attack the sooner it is over and the
longer the time for regretting the
mistake. There is just about as much
ust of talking pholosophy to lovers as
reading poetry to owls. They wink
and look wise, and that is all. It is a
pity it is so, and were it not for the
prospect of a change in the near fu-
ture the outlook would be anything
but encouraging. Not that genuine
love is less potent than in Eden, but
that dyspepsia and biliousness are in-
creasing with such marvelous rapidi-
ty. To be happy people must be
healthy. A sickly liver is a nuisance.
' Preachers and moralists are de-
claiming loudly against divorce laws,
and citing the fact that there is an
average of one divorce for every ten
marriages. Do they ever stop to think
that there are just grounds for twice
as many more ?
Do not the unhappy homes within
the circle of their acquaintance teach
them that there is something radically
wrong and can they not see that
divorce or separation is the only rem-
edy for it? Unphilosophical love will
ever be prolific of trouble. Men and
women must learn to distinguish the
great and vital difference between fas-
cination and affinity, biliousness and
love. Until they are able to do this
there will be divorces, scandals, mur-
ders, suicides, lives of shame and
deaths of misery. They must also
learn that marriage is not the door-
way leading to a feast of happiness,
but rather it is the taking up of new
and burdensome responsibilities, and
all the happiness it affords is that
which is incidental to a rational and
philosophical conception and faithful
discharge of the duties of life.

The Choice of Friends and Reading.
Your family is worth the best you
can give it. You desire for their en-
Joyment the best house, the best food,
the best clothes that you can afford.
And you are very careful that they
cultivate the right kind of friends.
But are you just as careful about
choosing the right kind of reading?
You should be, for reading has a
marked influence upon character, es-
pecially the reading that comes under
the eyes of the young and impresion-
able. If you choose The Younth’s Com-
panion you are giving your family an
acquaintance with the best there is in
periodical literature. If you see the
Companion in a house you may be
sure it is a safe family to tie up to—-
a family worth knowing. Try it for a
year and see.

An End of Grief.
The young voman was describing
to one of her friends a great chagrin
which she had undergone.
“I was just almost killed by it,” she
said; “I could have cried myself to
“Did you ery?” asked the other.
“No, I was just getting ready to
when the dinner bell rang.”-—Phila-

American Crop Must Feed Europe,
Says Herbert Hoover.
European countries will soon draw
heavily upon the American markets
for foodstuffs, according to Herbert
Hoover, Secretary of Commerce. He
said that the general shortages in Eu-
ropean crops has been so marked this
year that overseas countries must
look to the United States for supplies.
The United States has had unusu-
ally large crops and, though the grain
markets are lower today, this condi-
tion is expected to be corrected when
Europe comes into the market. Mr.
Hoover said that foreign nations were
holding out until the last moment be-
fore coming over here, but as soon as
their meager stock of foodstuffs di-
minished they would be here.
Farmers are having difficulty in mov- !
ing their grain to market, because of
Inadequate railroad facilities, and
should the European demand come at
once, transportation facilities would
not be sufficient to transport the
goods to the seaboard for export. As
the roads recover from the effect of
the shopmen’s strike they should be
able to handle all freight.
Grain in particular will be needed
by Europe, Mr. Hoover said. Surveys
of continental grain crops for the cur-
rent year indicate a shortage of wheat
of more than 160,000,000 bushels, not
to mention shortages in other bread-
stuffs. The American bumper crops,
however, will be ample not only to
supply all domestic needs, but also to
take care of Europe, he said.
