tfaturdi History of the Sweetheart Stealer and Philanderer
Like That of Birds of Prey.
TUB world mar. (peaking roughly, be
divided Into two wide classes, consist
Ins of those who giro and those who take.
And without a doubt there la a great deal
of stealing which la never recognised br
the police ur the law.
The aweethtart stealer la ft meat ob
jectionable individual and far mora com
mon than one would think. Thla peraon
may be of either sex, and enn be likened
to the frigate, or tho man-of-war bird,
that beautiful wa-blrd. of tlio tropica
which, tllough a mighty flier, la Incapable
of swimming or diving, and can therefore
only pick up a precarious living on flying
flh. Being thus unable to flah for them
selves, these pirate-birds resort to plunder
ing gnnneta and terns, which, ns they fly
homewards with their catch of fish, aro
compelled to drop their dinners which
are caught by tho swooping bird In mid-air.
The natural history of the sweetheart
stealer Is much the same. These plratea
of the lovera' world aecm Incapable of at
tracting affection on their own account
They must ateal. They cannot acquire.
Few girls are sufficiently wide-awake to
recognize the real love-pirate when they
meet him. lie Is a philanderer, of course,
and alt philanderers nre exceedingly at
tractive and well-doworod as to looks.
Moreover, he has a spurious glitter that
attracts theso foolish damsels away from
mora solid friendships and which gener
ally leaves them In the end Ilka tho
maiden all forlorn In tho story books,
without any lover at all)
There Is a period In the dawning of a
lave affair when tho Interference of a
third party may break up everything.
The relationship at this Interesting stage
generally goes under the name of an
"understanding." As a matter of fact,
this Is entirely a misnomer, as It Is the
most fruitful period of all In misunder
standing. And It Is precisely nt this
period that tho love-pirate steps In and
spoils everything by his Interference. He
starts paying perfectly meaningless at
tentions to the girl, and as he has &
strong and determined character to which
honor and chivalry offer no Insurmount
able obstacles, ho very often succeeds In
driving tho first lover from the campaign.
Human nature Is very weak, and flattery
will do much toward making a girl drop
the old love for the new, even when she
knows that her affections are centred
with the old love and when she has n
vagt,e Inkling that the second man Is but
a trlfler.
Aa an expert on the subject assures
us, "Love, after all, Is a sort of high wire
on which we poor humans can only walk
safety with the balancing pole of com
mon sense. And when we first start this
nice game of balancing, we are naturally
rather shnky and uncertain of our foot
hold." Trovers' quarrels give an endless op
portunity to the love-pirates, nnd many
a pair of sweethearts are left disconsolate
long after that bright bird has soared off
In search of other and more Interesting
The love-pirate, be It mnn or woman,
has no settled friends. If a man or
woman Is rich In acquaintances, but lack
ing In friends, be miro that something Is
very far wrong there. Buch a condition
Implies Instability of character.
Lovo and friendship alike demand sacri
fices. And the lovc-plrate Is prepared to
sacriflco nothing.
An Interesting article appeared In n
newspaper some time ago In which a
married woman catalogued the wholo
class of stenographers as love-pirates.
One of theso hod run off with her His
band, so naturally the poor woman's
opinion was more than a llttta biased.
Instead of condemning tho stenogra
phers ns designing young women, whoso
sole aim In life Is to attract every man
they meet. It would be better If the mar
ried women who regard them as pirati
cal copied some of their smartness and
general attractiveness. The married man
who ran off with his stenographer prob
ably did so because his wife chose to
appear beforo him dowdy and a frump.
Tho wifely apparitions which grace some
breakfast tables, with clothes negllgco
and hair even moro so, ore not calcu
lated for the retaining of husbandly ar
fectlon or even respect
Prices In Philadelphia Restau
rants Soar Above Those In
British Capital.
England Is worrying over the high cost
of living the problem which has prob
ably been discussed morn thnn any other
In this country In recent years and need
lessly It must seem to Phlladelphlans.
Prices of foodstuffs have Increased so
much because of the war, according to
dispatches, that It Is giving tho people
and the Government much concern.
Nevertheless a menu containing dishes
for every meal of the day taken from a
lending hotel and representative restnu-
rants In London show a scale of prices
which would make rhlladelphlans chuckle
with glee If they were In vogue here.
Hueh matters as woman suffrage nnd pro
hibition would be forgotten In the Joy
caused by n condition of affairs which
would promise the solution or we nign-cost-of-living
Only one Item on the menu of the Savoy
Hotel In London is listed at a higher
price than tho same article on the menu
of ono of Philadelphia's leading hotels
Curiously thnt Is a dessert, peach Melba,
which may bo caused by tne compara
tive scarcity of poaches in the "tight lit
tlo Isle," or by the superior facilities and
skill of American chefs in dessert man
Ing. Only four dishes can be bought for
the same prices In tho two hotels all the
rest cost moro In Philadelphia. The four
are consomme, filet de sole, pudding and
Ico cream.
These menus show that even with the
great advance In tho prices of foods In
London becauso of the war It Is posslblo
to get cheaper meals In the hotels nnd
restaurants thero thnn can be obtained In
this city In time of peaco. Following Is

Abovo is Mrs. Annlo Clinton,
godmother to Archbishop Kon
nedy. Bolow Is Mrs. Thomas
Carroll, who was bridesmaid to
Archbishop Kennedy's mothor.
TWO women living In Conshohockcn,
long- past tho throe score and ten toll
of years, foci a porsonal Interest in tho
elevation of tho night Rev. Thomas F.
Kennedy, rector of the American College
In Romo to tho archbishopric. Thoy aro
his aunt, Mrs. Annlo Clinton, of 224 East
6th nvenuo, nnd Mrs. Thomas Carroll,
of Stli avenua and Maple street
Mrs. Clinton takes great pride In being
ho godmother of the prelate and feels
hat her promise to see that tho Infant
if 67 years ago wnlkcd In tho ways of
ho Lord has been 'amply fulfilled. Mrs.
Cnrroll's Joy Is In the recollection that
sho wns the bridesmaid for the parents
of the Archbishop when they were mar
ried nnd that she cnrrled his Ornce to
church when he was to be baptized.
Roth these women were overjoyed when
they henrd thnt the Holy Father hnd con
ferred additional honor upon "Father
Tom," ns they affectionately know the
distinguished prelate who has been In
chnrgo of tho Papal College since 1901,
They take It thnt this fnvor Is the be
ginning of Rddltlonnl honors nnd pray
dilly to St. Anthony that they will soon
learn that n Hed Hat has been bestowed
tinon the ono who was reared In St.
Matthew's parish, Conshohockcn.
"Father Tom deserves any honor th"
Holy Father can glvo him," said Mrs.
Clinton this morning. "As a boy he won
n dutiful son nnd a Godfenrlng Christian,
with n henrt that went out to every one.
I remember ono ilny when he was a
mite of a boy thnt ho cried when I was
leaving tho old homo In Marble Hall be
causo his mother had given me nothing
to take away with mo. He was only
to bo appeased when It was promised that
his father would send mo somo scrapple,
nhlcli woo bolng made nt the time, after
It hnd cooled. It Is a great thing to feet
that your godson has so risen that ho
Is consulted by the Popo, and I know ho
Is Just as generous with others ns lie wii
with all his relatives. May ho bo created
n Cardinal and If It pleases the Lord bo
come the Holy Father boforo we oil die."
Mrs. Carroll oherlshcB nn autographed
photograph of his Grace, which was
sent to her from Homo shortly after
"Fnthor Tom" becamo n Bishop. When
tho prelnte visits his homo he always
looks In on tho ono who was his mother's
bridesmaid nnd what thoy gossip about
no one ever knows. Nor Is It likely that
tho rector of tho American College will
ever toll. Such conversations are not for
evory ono's ears.

only the wearer
knows the difference,
and appreciates the

Is used in this ratine

a plaid skirt of

Sealed Songs
Love touched my eyes and mads them
The world grow strangely roseatei
And all tha darkness of tho years.
Their lonellnoss, their formless fears,
were ioai in iignt. lire's ions arrears
Of Joy were paid In full by Fato.
Lovo touched my ears and made them
A hymn of hope, a low, sweet strain
And h11 the uncomDletcd nast.
The barren dreams, tho doubts amassed.
Were caught to harmony at last,
And courage calmed the pulse of pain.
Love touched my heart and made It stir
To ono strange cell from out Its sleep!
And life took up its lightened load
And marched a-singlng down the road.
Till happiness and wonder flowed
In veins where grief was wont to creep,
Love touched my llps-ond struck them
And all the glory In my sight.
And all the harmony that fell
Upon my ears, and all the spell
That held my hesrt, I could not tell
To Har--my Lady of the Light.
