IXT OF wise women one time got
up a "Woman's Bihle;" the one
they attrllmtcd to tho work and
mirnotes of man not being consid
ered as exactly filling the requirements,
r don't know what they put in It and I
have novcr heard that it has created any
convulsions In theological circles, so it
was probably as Innocuous as most of the
literature framd In tlic Iirnln ot nuHiern
femininity, Gertrude Atherton and Lillian
Bell always excepted.
They might have condensed all their
precepts and commandments Into a ver.v
short space, not beginning with tho re
vered one admonishing purity, gentleness,
serenity, patience and mercy, although
these could be included later.
The precious commandment which
should be given to woman Is very brief
indeed. It Is simply this: DON'T XAG!
One pplgraininiiticnl writer expressed
the idea rather succinctly in her advice
to a young wife. "My dear, don't nag
your husband," she urged, "theirs Is al
ways some other woman who won't!"
It is not only tlio poor husband who is
to be pitied. There are others. They In
clude everybody in tlio vicinity of the
nagger. One would as soon desire to live
in l ho house with a wildcat. She is usual
ly the one. who believes complacently that
her own duty is never neglected and one
of her duties is to remind other people of
their -shortcomings. How they love her!
How they arc prono to fall on her neck
with tears and declare: "Dear Airs. X,,
what should we do without you' Who
would keep the universe in place if it
were not for yon! Wo arc so glad you are
alive." Yes, that Is precisely the way
they treat a nagger. Huvon'i you noticed
it yourself?
There are so many ways of nagging. 1
do believe one could iloriso more recipes
for it than for making Welsh rurublt.
There is the woman who never says a
cross word to her husband, but who
sweetly and tenderly makes his life a bur
den to him by fussing over his comfort
worrying as to whether he wore his over
shoes or whether ho ate the right things
for luncheon, or whether he will remem
ber to take his coukIi mixture. The hus
band of this sort of a woman ousht to
bo absolved from a great many transgres
sions in this life and the life everlasting
The sueeens of "The Mocking nhd." I lie
now production by Sidney Itoscnlcld and
A, Baldwin Sloane, now running at the
UIJou theater, New Vork, In one of the
most convincing Indications' that there
Is a return of uenllmcnt In favor' of the
old tlmo comic opera, where a pleasing
story and tuneful miislu take the place
of the slnp-stlck and celtor bottle, as
features of amusement and Intel est. The
most surprising element In the opera In
which Mnbelln Ullmnti has achieved such
a success Is the delightful mtislo by A,
Baldwin flloano, which Is tho nearest up
proach to the Ideal of anything hoard
since the palmy days of Arthur Sul
livan. In tho ".Mocking Bird," ..Mr.
Slonnc, who has been heretofore known
chiefly as tlio writer of Jmrlesuue music
and rag-titno songs, delighted his many
ndmlrers by entering tin entirely new
Held of composition. While Ihe opera Is
fraught with cntehy melodies that are the
delight of tho whistler, there are many
numbers approaching the grand opera
that Indicate that tho composer has ca
pabilities in the way of handling more
ambitious themes than have hitherto been
unsuspected. The snecers of "The Atock
Ing Bird" will undoubtedly prompt the
lending managers to prollt by the hint,
nnd It is not unlikely tlint the Gilbert &
Sullivan style or opera will ngaln take
place or tho inane productions that have
been written around tho leading com
edians of tlio day.

Then there is the one who nags a man
about the condition of his affections and
whether ho loves her Just precisely as
much as he did last week at twenty min
utes past seven o'clock in tlio evening; a
"Altirnu" son of woman, who, when he
finally takes to tin morphine habit or to
a better world, Is sure to have her choice
of any number of other really excellent
men, well adapted to martyrdom. The
only more uncomfortable woman to live
with than tho "sweet" nagger is the one
who alms tlio breakfast plutes at your
head In tho coin-se of a little argument,
A nagger whom her friends dread as
they dread a mosquito In the silent mid
night hour, is tho teasing nagger, Von tiro
always certain that you me going to bo
stung by the mosquito, although ym can
never predic: Just where. The teasing
nagger also approaches blithely and then
prctrttids to go uway nnd forget yon, but
who is soon back to give you n iieertie-llke
little stab hi some particularly sensitive
part of your heart or your self-love often
synonymous terms. The perslstuncu with
which slio always returns to tho attack
would be beautiful If (ippllml to tho culti
vation of tlio dowers of good taste,
A man who is "a Jolly good sort, and all
Unit," said the other day that he could
be happier It his wlfo didn't loo him
so much.
"Shu's all the woman in the world for
me," lie said, "but she does want to tutu
my soul Inside out nbout threo times a
day. She simply sits down in trout of mo
and openly adores me until 1 txm stilled
and rush nut of tho house, Then silo
looks at me reproachfully and wondi rs
why I can think of leaving her when slio
never wants to leave me for a minute."
Now, thorn Is another kind or a nagger
for you. Which kind ure jou',' I forgot
to mention that men naggers are seven
teen times worse than women.

Every woman who feels that life is a burden,
Every woman who has tried all other means to regain health without succens,
Every woman who is going through that critical time the change of life
is invited to write to Mrs. Piakham, Lynn, Mass., in regard to her trouble, tni
the most expert advice telling exactly how to obtain n CURE will be sent abso
lutely free of cost.
The one thing that tiuulitius ti person to give mtvico on any snbjeol
is experience experience creates knowledge.
Xo other person litis so wide an experience with female ills nor suoh
a record of success as Mrs. Pinklnini has had.
Over a hundred thousand cases come before her each year. Soma
personally, other! by mail. And this has been going tin for twenty years,
day after day, and day after day.
Twenty years of constant success think of the knowledge thus
gained! Surely women are wise iu seeking advice from a woman with
such an experience, especially when it is free.
Mrs. Hayes, of Boston, wrote to Mrs. Pinkliniu when she whs
in great trouble. Her letter shows the result. There tire actually
thousands of such letters in Mrs. I'iuklnun's possession.
" AIlis. PlNiaiAM : I have been under doctors' treatment forfemala
troubles for some time, but without any Telief. They now tell me I have a
fibroid tumor. I cannot sit down without great pain, nnd the soreness extends
up my spine. I have bearing' down pains both back and front. My abdomen
is swollen, I cannot wear my clothes with any comfort. Womb is dreadfully
swollen, and I have had flowing spells for three years. My appetite is not
good. I cannot walk or be on my feet for any length of time.
"The symptoms of Fibroid Tumor, given in your little book, accurately
describe my case, so I write to you for advice.'' Mks. K. 1 Hayes, 252
Dudley St. (Boston), Roxbury, Mass.
" Dkar Mrs., Pixkham : I wrote to you describing my symptoms, and
asked your advice. Von replied, and I followed all your directions carefully
for several months, and to-day I am a well woman.
" Tho use of Lydia 13. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, together
with your advice, carefully followed, entirely cxpelled'thc tumor, and strength
ened tho whole system. I can walk miles now.
