ho ought to give tho authors. Fun, ex
citement, a llttlo thought, and tho only
lovable lunatic tho stage over saw what
more do you want7
"Drink deep or touch not" maybe
that's tho answer. It's these days of
votes for women that make men wrlto
farces about sex attraction and the cave
man; and It's these tamo days that make
us reprove them for not writing a drama
Instead. The smart set If It weren't so
smart would call "Tho Misleading Lady"
"Schoponauer In tho Movies, scenario by
Kipling, with John Bunny."
For "The Misleading Lady" Is a three
round match between a cavo man nnd a
woman who doubtless prefers "influence"
to a vote. The lady extracts a proposal
from one of theso explorer-traveler
"strong men" In order to prove that she
can play the part of tho siren In some-
body-or-other'a new play. Tho strong
man tutns philosophic when ho learns
about- the Jolto and oxplalns that women's
clothes are not designed for utility or
self-effacement.. "Women are consumers
of human energy, and tho best of them
nro "good" only technically. So on the
supposition that tho modern woman who
keeps to her "sphere," plays for tho
physical Bldo of man out of pure Innate
cussedness and not because she hasn't
any other way of earning tho necessary
husband, he Indulges In a little forco
wjilch ho says Is no more brutal than
liors. Ho chucks his coat over her head,
filings her Into his car and finally lands
her on the end of the watchdog's chain
In his Adirondack camp. Ho completes
the proof that a gentleman Is only a
shirt nnd a shave and a shine with tho
caveman Inside by marrying this under
dressed ninny when she adds a declara
tion of love to her previous attractions.
But not till we have had a lot of fun

try to shoot him. Not till her fiance haB
