A writer in. (the Sun Is disposed to put

every girl on marrying means to make

what Is tho history of moat marriages?

he take the same Interest In her trivial
household news? Does he still tell her,
ind what Is more, show her, that he
ttlll thinks her peerless among women,
ind that while he does not wish to
make a recluse, of her, 'he still prefers
her society alona as he did In their
happy' courting' days? Is the fact not
rather that, as soon as the novelty of
new association wears off, the . man
takes the' first iplunge, and. In small
things at first, begins to neglect the

night for his club, to take several; to

hurt and too proud to speak of it?
Then she, too, takes her own path and
is thrown in; with other women who
- have lost all home ties, all home .inter-,
ists. even in ithelr children. Is It any
wonder that the woman grows careless,
purposeless, given up to dress, not for
men but for women, and finally objects
to an evening at home even with a
friend to dinner, and dreads a tete-a-tete
"with her husband a thousand

for life companions instead of because

confesses 46 doubts-'as to the existence

appearance cf . the advanced and "liber

ths readers believe In her. There has
always been the woman who goes to
lengths and breadths in her talk, and
the woman who goes to lengths and
breadths lh her behavior; and undoubt
edly now there Is a tendency to free
women from the control of mere con
vention moro and more, which Is a very
good thing. Men have to let them ask
why men may do certain wrong things
and women may not, but apparently
they do not abuse this right to go and
do the wrong things because men have
no good answer to make. Bo much of
new womanhood as this seems to be' In
the air, and the air Is all the fresher
and purer for it, but If any one will ob
serve the facts, will he find more than
this? The new woman to tho type of
woman whom Active art is Just now
dealing with, because she amuses and
because she is easier to do than the
woman with leas salient characteris
tics. We notice her in life because wo
have found her in books, and because
wo have begun to notice her In life she
abounds In books more and more and
again more In life. One cannot say Just
how suoh things originate or how they
will end. An artist draws a succession
of charming piatureS from some tall,
slender girl; the tall, slender girl seoms
to step from them Into the street, and
then you can get nothing but tall,
slender girls in any of the illustrations.
Nature and art seem to play Into each
other's hands, and by and by they seem
to get tired of this plaything or that,
and suddenly drop it Perhaps In time in
a very short time the new woman will
be flung out on the dust heap with her
clothes In tatters, her nssa broken, an
eye gone, an arm pulled out and the
sawdust oozing from every pore."
Creamed Codfish. Flake enough cod
fish (we prefer the boneless codfish,

serve in a border of mashed potatoes,
beaten until creamy.
Creamed Codfish with Eggs. Prepare
the codfish precisely as given above.
Ten minutes before serving time, put
as many eggs as you wish (half a dozen,
more or less) into a quart cup or basin,
cover them with boiling water, and lot
them stand where the water will keep
hot, but not boil, for ten minutes. Dur

or roll the slices cigar fashion. ' A little
lemon Juice squeezed over the caviar

seurs, Russians especially.

As patent-leather shoes, even Of the best
quality, are likely to crack, and the shoe
dealers will not be responsible for them,
It Is well to know how to doctor them a
little yourself. In the first place, keep
them wrapped In cotton batting, and the
lnsldo filled with soft paper or cotton. If
necessary to wear them on a very "cold
night, put them on In the dressing room
after arriving, If possible. To keep the
leather soft, rub It occasionally With a lit
tle sweet oil, rubbing tho oil in as much
as possible, and then wipe the shoes thor
oughly with chamois. If you must con
tinue to wear your shoes after tho glaze Is
cracked, buy or make a good varnish and
keep the shoe dressed with It.
