WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH
FATHER? M'LISS QUESTIONS
Tf He's All Right, Let's Tell Him So, Thereby
Averting a Revolution Which Has Been
Threatening For Some Time
"TnrrHfcllE Is father's placo In tho uni

masculine correspondent sends to me,
"Mother's placo has been definitely cstab.

She Is secure in her niche. Attack the
eacred Institution of motherhood and you
are an outcast and pariah forever after

writers to the feminists, hesitates to knock
tho paternity houn' daws around.
"What's the matter with fathers, any
way? Haven't wo earned the right to
live? Is there any reason why we
should be persona non grata in our own
homes, tho object of our children's 111

all day so that they may have food to
eat and clothes to wear7 Have wo bo
come sentimentally maudlin over our

perhaps, bo better off and In a more hon

"Turn your consideration to theso

Many a misused father deserves to got
it, Oppressed, but, on the other hand,
many a misused mother has become so
familiarized with her place at the wash,
tub and tho sewing machlno that she
wouldn't feel qtilto comfortable on a ped

the satisfaction of having had gloriously

I agreo with you, however. Daddy has
missed this latter. It's beginning to tell
on him, too. Watch him as ho strap
hangs In the subway with dog meat for

mother's pressed suit under tho other.
No lord of creation he, a beast of burden,
rather, who having put his nock to the

left of him, but plods wearily on, regard
less of who wields the whip and lelns
Some day there's going to be a revolt
of fathers. ' Tho time Is coming when a
pert young miss, having rebuked her pa

do cut your asparagus," will be trcnted
to the surprise of her llfo by the meta
morphosis of the old Pa Into an assertive
creature totally different from anything

the quaintand pretty Croix iaenryma, as
botanists name them. We prefer to call
the glossy gray ovates "Job's tears." The

the patriarch's tears rolling In the ashes
strewed upon his beard were changed Into
beads, which fell into the dust and sprang

"As a boy

TO MOTHERS AND FATHERS
Tradition says that experience is the champion school teacher
of the world, yet how many people ever profU by the experience of
others? Have you, fathers and mothers, ever given your children the
benefit of your experience in life?
In a few days a play will be presented in Philadelphia which
should interest the citizens of this community. t There are tens of
thousands of fathers and mothers in Philadelphia who should send
their children, their sons and daughters, all ignorant of the snares
and pitfalls of life, to see this play.
This play, "Experience," is the Eternal, Never-dying story of
Youth. His Early Struggles. His Venture into the Great World to
Seek Fame and Fortune. His Trials and Temptations, His Triumph
Over Evil and Wickedness through the Everlasting Influence of a
Woman's Love; just the sort of Experience that YOUR boy may be
about to Endure.
"Experience" teaches a great moral lesson. It has been endorsed
by clergymen of all denominations wherever presented. It has a
wonderful effect upon the audience, because it points out to every
man, woman and child the evils of a life of Pleasure upon the Prim
rose Path, and brings home to every heart the old, old story that the
Straight and Narrow Path alone is the Road to Happiness.
The play is presented in ten scenes by a company of eighty
two people, and comes to Philadelphia direct after a phenomenal
engagement of nine months in New York, seven months in Chicago
and five months in Boston. It opens at the Adelphi Theater Thurs
day, August 31, with an invitation performance for clergymen only.
