PRIZE SUGGESTIONS, GARDENING HINTS AND SPRING FASHIONS FOR EVERY WOMANi
TtlE various methods employed for tlio
captivating and ultimate perirmncnl
capturing of mero mankind havo been a
fruitful subject for discussion this many
a day. The season's new hooks aro full
of It "Any woman can havo any man
she likes If sho pursues him vigorously
enough, or eludes him cither docs,"
says Doris Egorton Jones In "Time o'
Day." "Thcro aro two ways for a woman
to get what sho wnnts. Ulther chaso It
for all sho Is worth, or run from It In
tho same manner. It depends on the
Yes, most decidedly It depends on tho
man. Tho avcrago man detests being
openly and obviously run after. For ns
surcdly It brings upon his head tho ridi
cule of his fellow men and tho scorn of
his feminine acquaintances. Tho wholo
point is In tho manner of tho running
after and In tho varying degrees of
diplomacy which accompany tho pursuit.
Once let a man sec that ho Is being
buiaiy chased then farewell, farewell to
rosy hopes of matrimony.
According to Thackeray, any woman
with fair opportunities and not actually
a hump can marry whom she pleases
but he adds that it is a mercy that the
little- dears are like the beasts of tho
field and do not know their own power!
Tho artifices used by the weaker sex for
the capturing of the male creature fall
desperately wldo of tho mark through
their own Ignorance of tho nature of tho
species. It is pathetic to noto tho mis
placed energy which Is doomed to meet
with no reward.
"Faint yet pursuing" Is their motto, nnd
ono which they will get leave to follow
to tho bitter end, alone and unattached.
And all because a lack of diplomacy Is
thcro. These women cannot and will
not understand the masculine mind nnd
the masculine point of view and until
they do so they need never hope to ho
successful In tho Great Adventure.
For lovo Is, after nil, tho Great Adven
ture. It Is at tho samo tlmo the most
entertaining and most satisfying thing in
tho world. To quote a recent novel,
"Lovo Is good for any one. It's the most
educating thing In the world. If I could,
I should Insist on every ono falling In
love at least three times under SO. We
should have a lot less stupidity and mis-
lanes in ine worm, nny, you learn

A Porch Weather Vane
WHEN the first warm breezes of sum
mer began to blow through the win
dows. Jack Dillon announced that he was
ready to go to tho lakeside.
"But my dear boy," exclaimed his
mother, "you can't go to the country for
weeks yet. There Is a long tlmo at
school, and a couplo of weeks afterwards
before we can get away. "Why are you
In such a hurry?'
.Jack sighed a big "latc-ln-the-sprlng"
sigh, and replied, "Oh I know we can't
go yet, worse luck! But I do so want to
make boats. There's nothing so much fun
as making boats."
"Why don't you work on your boati
after school every night." suggested
mother; "then when it really comes tlmo
to go, you will have a lot of fine ones
nil ready for sailing."
At first Jack thought that a fairly good
Idea and for several evenings he worked
' diligently. But by the time he had fin
ished the second pretty little craft, his
enthusiasm waned and he said fretfullv,
"There's no fun In making boats when
they can't go! How can I tell whether
they aro any good or not" How can I
know how to make the third one better
than the first, when the first Is Just lay
ing on the shelf? No sir! I'll not make
any more till I can use them!"
Mother heard him, and wished she could
think of some scheme for using boats
but she couldn't. Jack bad long ago out
grown bathtub sailing; there was no park
or lake near their home, and the tanks In
the city gymnasiums could not be used
for boats, even If tho boats wero beauti
ful ones. "But I'll ask his father to
night," said mother to herself; "maybe
he can think of some way of using boats."
So that evening, Jack's father was ap
pealed to and he thoughtfully studied the
question before he gave an answer. "Yes,
you can use boats hero nt home," ho
Anally said; "make me four of the best
you know how to make, and 1 will show
you how to use them."
"You know you are Just Joking me,"
said Jack half vexed, "you know boats
can't bo used In a city."
"They can't?" laughed father, "well,
you make me the boats, and we'll see

She was working when he knocked, nnd
merely called, "Come In,"
"I thought It was only you," she added,
with a smllo nnd a nod of welcome over
her shoulder. "Isn't It a dream of a day?
You nro about r& minutes too late. Mnb
Just went for a park tramp with her
pockets full of cake for the squirrels, nnd
her heart full of love for nil the world, !
especially tht springy world. Goodby."
"But t'm not going, thank you," he
answered, Intighing down nt her. Ho
drew tip hla favorlto chair deliberately,
the deep lounging one, and seated him
self besldo her desk, Tho window was
open, and a Htllo Ilookwood Jnr In soft
greens nnd bronzo browns stood upon
tho sill, holding a cluster of daffodils.
There was a mass of scattered manu
script spread over the desk, nnd her eyes
looked tiled with forced thought. The
breeze from tho window had blown her
hair Into a fluffy, cnrelcss state, unlike Us
usual buslncss-llko primness, and there
were Ink blots on her second finger.
"I'm going to stny hole uwhlte," he
said. "And I don't give n inp for your
ladyship' a permission, 1 hnvo come to
havo n tnlk with you."
Khe looked nt him nmiisedly. He had
picked up her blue pencil, nnd wns mark
ing stars on the back of the manuscript
"So serious? Let's see." She laid down
her pen resignedly. "Ttunv doesn't IlUn

to play ping pong with ntir public, Hick.
If the like your cream puffs and ehoco

doughnuts nnd brown bread of icallsm.
Is Hint It? Or woie the last royalties be
low par? Or has Mnb been tensing you.
Ho was not smiling now, There was a
new earnestness In his eyes ns ho bent
suddenly toward her.
"Comrade," ho said, "am I good enough
tn ask the woman I love to marry me?"
It wns very quiet In the Intge, rent fill
studio npnrtment. The tap of horses'
hoofs on the pavement far below Hound
up to tlieiii faintly, and uxcit wns n .
rustle as tho wind stirred the leaves of
paper on tho desk. She was still smiling, i
but her head wns turned to the window,
nnd tho ellov daffodils nnd blue sky
beyond. Sho wn Bind she was strong, i
ami had known all along that this must
Miicly come. It wns right, too. She was I
glnd for Mali. Man In her gloilous youth,
who had swept Into her life with the
Joy nnd piomlso of the spiingllnie, nnd i
bad nut new zest and bone In her bv i
tho veiy forco of her nmbltlon and con-
lldener, in nil ililnc.
And it was good that these two should
marry, nnd thn man who had been her
fil'Mid nnd comrade so long so long.
Thci wero tho first days of hor strug
gles, when Mie had met him hnphazaid.
Ho was already one known and sought
after even then, nnd he had smiled down
at her, the fmnk. blight smile she had
grown to look for, nnd told her to mnko
a good fight and win out. She was sine
to In tho end. Only the weak ones fell
on the line of mnrch.
Then when success began to come slow
ly, nnd she felt the foothold of surety
beneath her feet, his had been tho first
nlce nf congratulation to reach her, and
still urge her higher. It was u matter
of years. Sho was ,"fl now. He must be
nearly fort. Sho thought or Mnb nt IS
and wondered If sho could ever know
and appreciate the valuo of the man who
loved her, who was willing to lay tho
strength and honpr of his life's success
at her feet.
Sho Know him so well, and had come
to understand that sho was necessary
to him In his work, that her voice wns
the first he sought In commendation.
Haeh of his later plays he had lend
aloud to her, seated as now, in tho deep
armchair beside her desk. They had dls
cusbed them together, and planned, and
corrected, nnd hoped nnd been truo com
rades. Now it was nil at an end.
Something blurred tho daffodills nnd
bluo sky from her sight, and ho frowned.
' Don't," he said.
"oh, I know, I understand," her voice
was low and uncertain, but she smiled
back at him with the old courage. "I
havo understood all along, before you did
oursclf, I believe. But don't you seo
how hard it is for me?"
"She has been so much to me. Uxcept
for you, all my way has been lonely.
Even tho success could not better thnt
When I found her, Just ns I wns at (list.
oung, nnd alone, and poor, nnd brimful
of hope, with all tho struggle ahead, and
the heartaches, It seemed so good to
sweep her up out of It nil, tn this, and
give her a fair chance. And she's so
sweet, and bright, and true, I can't
make you understand how dear she Is to
me, or how lonesomo it will be here with
Sho rose nnd went to the window, her
face raised to meet tho wind and sun
shine. 'How selfish wo aic ns wc grow older,
aren't we. Dick? It seems as If I want It
to bo always spring now. When I was
IS, like Mali, I didn't enre. It was only
a matter of violet time, nnd showers, nnd
a little quicker beating of the pulses. Now
It comes nnd goes so soun. and only seems
tho symbol of something lost."
Sho turned hack to tho desk, nnd put
the glass stopper on the bottle mechan
ically. "Mnb Is coming across the park," she
sold. "I am going to be good to you
both, and leuvo you to our wooing with
my blessing. And I am glad, so glnd,
Dick, for you. Only wns It quite fair to
steal my springtime girl nway and leave
mo all alone, honest, was it, comrade?"
She stretched out her bund to him. He
held it In a close grip, nnd leaned across
the desk toward her.
"Winifred, Winifred." he said. "And
you have been the woman who under
stood me of all the world. Couldn't you
seo I was waiting for It all to rome to
you, the success, the little petty laurel
crowns that aro turned out by the hun
dreds nowadays. I wanted you tn gain
It all, and still find something lacking, so
that some day I might come to you, as J
do now, and say, "Aren't you tired of It
all, dear? Can't you come to me now,
and rest, and live In the springtime
She shook her head at him, her lips
closed, her eyes full of tears.
"I never knew," she said. "Anil it waa
so long and lonesome, tho fight, you
know, and I am so tired of it all, Dick,

There was a light, quick step In the
hall. Mab was whistling as she came,
some gay little love Bans, of a shep
herdess and a miller laddie, and the gate
where tho muythorn grows. She opened
the door softly so as not to disturb the
writer at the desk, but the writer was
almost hidden from view behind a barri
cade of masculine arms. And Mab smiled
and stepping noiselessly back into the
hall closed the door after her and went
back to the squirrels and the park.

The Layette Movement
One of the most Interesting and slgnlll
ant bencflta secured for women by the
Child Federation Is the new "layette"
movement. This is a system by which
layettes nro supplied for the new baby
at very little cost. These nre hygienic
nnd especially prepared for the purpose
of giving mothers nil over tho State of
Pennsylvania a well-planned, sanitary
equipment for their children.
Kvcry one realizes th) Importance of
proper clothing regarding tho welfare
of babies, and also that the cost of
this Is often too great to assure It to
all. The Woman's Advisory Doard, In

after, the hospitals, department stores,

scientifically selected by the best baby
specialists, of an npproved quality, and nt
the lowest possible cost. Order cards

The Child Federation stamp Is put on

the whole State of Pennsylvania, and
women all over the State are heartily in

toward better understanding between

And the sods to my bosom yearn.

"I didn't mean to," apologized Fern.
