How He Conquers
MaH Is a. polj'gnnious nnlmat, bo boos
the aylnr. Ho la capable of loving mora
than ono woman nt n time. Ho Is oven
capnblo of loving lialf a down and of
persuading them nil Into tho belief that
i eaeh'nnd every ono Is the damsel partlcu-
larljr chosen out to bo tho queen of his
heart and tho ono and only lady of his
Now whether this bo truo or not, there
Is ono thing pretty suro and certain and
that Is that tho average man Is capable of
carrying on several pretty lively flirtations
at ono and tho samo time, and, what Is
more, thoroughly enjoying them, too.
Whether the gentlo passion that tho
pursuit of each damsel arouses In his ad
venturous breast can bo labeled with the
rather alUcmbraclng title of lovo Is not
easy to decide. Lovo Is n big word and
implies a very great deal and tho malo
dirt does not deslro to expend too much
undue energy on tho chase. Ho prcfors
that his efforts bo diffused, as It were,
and spread out over a wldo area. In
other words, ho decides not to have all
his apples In ono cart.
Most worth-whllo men havo had a few
little flirtations In their lives. They would
make hopeless, blundering, unapprcclatlvo
sort of husbands If they hadn't. Thcro
is nothing In this world qutto so reju
venating, qulto so stimulating as a mild
For It calls Into play certain mental
faculties and certain powers of rcpartco
which aro otherwise apt to stagnate. It
makes a man feel that after all ho Isn't
such a back number as he thought ho
was, and that tho girls still sco some
thing to admire In him. Ho feels qulto
a dog, prinks around in front of tho mir
ror, puts on a new tic, and sallies forth
4or conquest.
All of which Is very Interesting and do
.llghtful. It docs a man good, and It cer
tainly puts.hlm Into a fine humor with
life In general and himself In particular.
But what of tho man who really makes
of femalo scalp-collecting a hobby? Ho
Isn't such a rare specimen as ono might
Imagine, either. No Indeed. In certain
walks of life ho Is to bo met with only
too frequently. The pity of tho business
la that girls don't And him out sooner.
Girls can bo extraordinarily stupid
whoro an attractive man Is concerned.
Not that tho confirmed malo flirt is
really attractive. Superficially lie may
be, but he lacks depth. Girls don't see
that, however, for It Is ono of the regu
lar poses of tho confirmed malo flirt to
assume a depth of character and feeling
when he has neither.
Another of tho Interesting poses pecu
liar to tho person under discussion is
qulto alluring aB ho desires It so to
be. Not only has ho this wonderful depth
of feeling hidden away from the whole
world and only to bo revealed to The
Girl of GIrls-the Girl of the Moment
that Is but he suffers from a terrible
handicap in life; for ho is Misunder
Fashion's Fancies
One of fashion's favorite combinations
this spring will bo poplin and satin.
Skirts of poplin will be combined with a
bodice or soft satin, perhaps with a
touch of Itoman stripe In It- Plaids are
very good this season, too.
Most of the plaids, chedks, stripes, etc.,
shown In tho newest materials are In
black and white or very dark colorings.
The glaring tints of last season's cos
tumes for street wear aro a thing or the
From the other side comes word that
nets will bo very much worn. Tho filet
nets are very attractive, nnd It may be
safely assumed that a great many of the
gowns will have sleeves of this material.
Slk square-meshed nets are not particu
larly new. of course, but they are still
In vogue, blue and black predominating.
Vestees of hemstitched pique, batiste,
mull or organdie are seen on most of the
trotteurs. They relieve tho rather som
tier effects of the plain colors. Bands of
moire, a shade lighter than the suiting
itself, are also used, with gun-metal but
tons as the sole trimming. These help to
make a very modish costume for street
The top coats for spring show a decided
Inclination toward the flare around the
bottom. They are mostly three-quarters
length, and black nnd white check is
frequently seen. All the collars are high
In the back and V-shaped In front, like
the blouses. A broad belt with basque
affect is rumored.
Many women are buying narrow rib

"Somehow I don't seem nblo to ex

murmur confidently, with a tender, wist
ful look upon his face. "I havo never
met a woman who seemed to really un
derstand me until I mot you. Words
seem unnecessary between us, for wo aro
so uttorly in Sympathy."
Tho word "sympathy" with all Its
numerous and delightful variations Is
over on tho lips of tho confirmed malo
flirt. It Is his long suit, his trump card,
so to speak. Girls, bo warned In time!

pathetically that no ono knows I1I3 real

of revealing tho depths of tho samo to

Yes, theso llttlo tokens nro tho unfail

plaintive, far-away look has been prac
ticed so often that perfection has been
attained. That solitary bleat of tho soul
on tho mountain-tops seeking Its mato
has been heard before by your best girl
friend, In all probability. Try exchanging
a fow reminiscences with her and sco
what happens. You will emerge a wiser
If a madder woman.
Thcro Is ono soothing point In tho
wholo affair and that is that sooner or
later the confirmed flirt will meet his
Waterloo. Ho will not cmcrgo victor

will meot his match. Tiio string of
feminine scalps ho proudly wears will

Couple Married in Night Court
Magistrate Carson played "second fid

Night Court in City Hall, after the young
people had missed the last train to Elk
ton, Old. Miss Louise Klubman, of 112
Wood street, and Harry Mandels, of 103
North Bodlne street, with the best man
and bridesmaid, arrived at Broad Street
Station a few seconds too late last night.
They did the next best thing, and were
married by Magistrate Carson.
grumbled a third, "I'm so hot I can
hardly breathe!"
The sun heard the snowflakes murmur
ing and the third day hid himself behind
a cloud bank so the enowflakeo could bo
more comfortable.
But that didn't help matters much, for
Jack Frost went away on a visit and the
snowflakes were warmer than ever.
And the smoke from the chimneys on
houses and factories settled down on
yards and roofs till each snowllake felt
as black and mussy as a coal fairy.
"I'm so ashamed pf myself I" groaned a
snowfl&ke, 'i Wih I could run and hide.
The idea of a snowrtake having such a
dirty face as mine!"
"Not only my face Is dirty." said an
other, "I'm black and grimy all overt"
"I wish the good old rain would come
and wash ua clean before another day
Just at that very minute, some raln
drope looked down from the sky and saw
the dirty snowflakes.
"Let's go down and wash off that
smoke and dirt." they said.
So down through the twilight they
dropped: drip-drip, through the night
others followed, all anxious to wash the
pretty enawflakes.
In the morning the sun peeped out to
sea how the earth wp$ faringand what
do yon suppose he saw?
The raindrop In their eagerness to
make the wiswfiakea clean had worked
too hard!

Films of Fate
It was In. tho hypo balh that he first
saw her that Iawson Trotter flrst be
hold tho features of hln future wife, Mar-"
garct Pudsey. That Is to say, It was
when ho was developing films late one
night films of what ho Ruppesed wcto a
group of pictures of himself Iti various
poses of athletic contortions. Thou when
ho was watching with eager Interest to
behold his own silhouette, faintly nnd re
versed camo forth tho features of a girl.
"Great Heckl" said Lawson, although
Ihcro wasn't any ono In his bachelor
nunrtots to hear him. "Those wcro pic
tures of myself and hero Is a girl." Ho
looked nt tho six exposures of tho roll
nnu round on each a glil.
Then ho went back over tho events of
the day and recalled that when ho had
left tho train In tho morning from tho
lako shore whero ho had been spending
tho week-end ho hnd left his roll of films
In tho car. Ho had gono back to tho
"lost and found" desk In tho stntlnn. nnrl
when ho described a toll or films ho had
theso handed out to him. As tlioy wcro
tho Eatno slzo 11s tho ones lie had lost ho
had accented them.
The next evening I.nwson printed tho
negatives and saw, as he had hoped ho
would find, that tho unknown girl was
charming. Sho looked out of tho pictures
wltli a girlish animation that made him
smuo back at licr. Thcro wns a dog in

Ho lived in n city about a hundred nnd
fifty thousand strong. Thcro wcro In that
number, Lawson reasoned, possibly fifteen
hundred young women not that any of
them wero comparablo with tho original
of tho picture but still ho would havo
only a slim chanco of meeting her cas
ually. And ho hadn't tho ghost of a clow
as to her identity. Ho pondered it
thoughtfully. Thero wasn't a ghost of a

tratcd his lclsuio thoughts on whlto
French poodles. Ho went to tho dog
show nnd examined every entry and In
quired nbout whlto French poodles. Ho
read books on tho subject and talked to
his friends about It. Whcnover he mado
a new acquaintance ho led tho conversa
tion up to whlto French poodles so that
In caso they know tho original of the an
imal In tho picture they might mention It.
Ho had nimost given up hopo after a
month. Ho reproached the zlrl nvnr lila
desk for her heartlessneas.
Ono holiday as ho was dressing leisurely
Him wonaenng wnat in tlio absenco from
town of ills bachelor ccompanlon ho
was going to do to pas the time, ho
thought tho girl was smiling at him.
"You aro a deceitful wretch If you
aren't smiling at mo now," ho exclaimed.
"By Heck, I will find you," nnd then ho
stnrted out for a walk In wooded park In
a lonesome end of tho city.
He was walking by an artificial lako
looking nbsently at tho swans that wcro
kept thero by tho city for the diversion
of its citizens, when ho spied across the
lako a poodle. He looked closely and
saw, as It splashed Into tho water, that It
was a rather largo whlto French poodle.
Lawson was on tho verge of Jumping Into
tho lake and wading across to save time,
but on second thought he went to the
shore, nnd ran with all speed to tho Bpot
whoro tho poodle had ''"en seen. After
a few minutes' search Through tho brush
that bordered that side of tho lako ho
found the poodlo up to its body In muddy
water. Lawson camo up stealthily to It
and, catching It by the collar, hauled It
ashore. Tho animal, far from resenting
this treatment, licked tho hand that held
him and waited for something to happen.
Lawson waited too, for some ono to come
for tho dog. Ho oven lot tho animal
loose, thinking that he would start homo
and ho could follow him, but tho poodlo
seemed placidly content to stay where ho
It occurred to Lawson that In tlmo tho
owner of tho dog would advertise for It.
Thereupon ho lifted the dog still muddy
from Its exclusions Into tho lake and
carried It back to his lodgings. There,
for tho sake of tho fair owner, he treated
the poodlo with tho utmost consideration.
The next day, ns Lawson had hoped,
tho morning papers displayed advertise
ments for a lost French poodlo answering
to the name of Doodle. In his eagerness
he had risen nt sunbrcak and, locking the
nnlmnl In tho room, went out to buy
tho papers Having discovered the adver
tisement, ho went to a. neighboring res
taurant for a bite of breakfast, and was
oft with tho poodlo by 7. This was the
fatal mistake. Instead of seeing tho fair
owner or Doodle and having a chance to
tell her a little of the Interest he felt In
her, ho had the pleasure of meeting Mr.
Pudsey, her rather, who was nt break
fast when Lawson called. The father was
Irate. Ho said that Doodlo was In the
habit of bathing In the lake and would
have come home safely if Lawson hadn't
urged him away. When Lawson refused
the reward his conduct was still further
"Aro you quite sure it Is the same dog!"
said Lawson, in an unreasoning effort to
see the fair owner of Doodle. "I don't
like to leave so valuable a dog without
having It Identified by the real owner."
rne irate father was still more Irate.
Could there have been more than one
white French poodlo taking a bath In
the same place and at the same time?
Lawson withdrew and went to his offlci?
resolved to call the next day at Pudsey's
In tho early afternoon, when Mr. Pudsey
would not bo nt home. When he called,
Miss Pudsey, the original of the picture,
appeared In the reception room. She
Htarted with a little gasp when she saw
him and eyed him with curiosity. Law
son did not understand. He was over
come by the near presence of the Idol of
ills dreams, ten times more adorable In
reality than In tjie pictures. At flrst he
talked about Doodle and then he ex
plained that he had found the pictures
and that was the reason for his abduction
of the dog.
"And I have your pictures," exclaimed
Miss Pudsey, "That Js why I was so
startled when I saw you. I think I mutt
have taken them by mistake on the train.
I came in with you on the same train
that morning, though I don't suppose you
remember me."
"Are you sure they were pictures of
roe?" he said. "May I see them?"
Miss Pudsey hedged. She didn't want to
show them to him. Yes, she had had
them printed, but really she didn't want
to show them to him. She blushed and
laughed a little, and finally went upstairs
to get them. When she returned she
blushed more deeply and laughed delight
fully to hide her confusion. "Ypu see,
I had them framed," she said, "Just be
cause Jt was bo mysterious. You think I
am very foolish, I suppose."
"Not at all foolish," said Lawson,
clumsily. "I don't blame you at all: that
is, I am deeply honored " He ftook the
pictures In his hand and saw that they
had been expensively framed. They were
apparently enlargements of the originals.
He looked at them and was glad that he
appeared to advantage. Then he fumbled
with his watch and unscrewed the back.
"I have been Just as foolish," he said,
showing her her own face In the back of
hie watch. "We need no Introduction."
And that wa why it happened that rour
months after Margaret Pudsey lost her
white French poodle, named Doodle, tier
father and mother had tlw town nt an
nouncing her wedding t the lasn w
brpufbt Doodle home.

In the Garden
This Is tho time of tho year when the
garden iover must turn her attention to
the preparation of tho soil. With the ap
proach of spring nnd tho gradual depar
ture of Jack Frost this work becomes a
genuine pleasure. Ilusty rakes and hoes
and garden Implements must bo unearthed
from tho collar.
Before 0110 enters upon tho actual prep
aration of tho soli thero is a very real
pleasure In poring over catalogues, ee'
lcctlng various seeds, writing numerous
epistles to seed houses and many other
attendant Joys or anticipation.
Tho great mistake of tho average ama
teur gardener Is that his eagerness car
ries him away, ho staits to preparo tho
soil far too early in tho Bcason, and Jack
Frost creeps In over night and undoes all
his work and toll.
With spring surely at hand, seeds plant
ed at the proper time and tho proper
time Is now approaching tho gardener
enjoys tho flrst real pleasure attendant
upon cultivation of plants.
As day after day passes the gardener
watches with the keenest Interest for the
flrst tiny shoots to push up from tho soil,
for there Is no greater pleasure than
watching the gradual creation of one's
own handiwork. These tiny shoots are
nurtured and wntered daily, and tho
greatest attention must be given them If
me uesi results are to be obtained.
