JEALOUSY AND LOVE

.THEY ARE QUITE DISTINCT AND
SEPARATE ATTRIBUTES.

Idea That There Can Be No Lov
Without Large Admixture of Jeal Jealousy
ousy Jealousy Is Not by Any Means
Well Founded.

The prevailing Idea appears to be
that there can be no love without a
pretty large admixture of jealousy, and
that, conversely, almost every case of
Jealousy springs from some misguided
love affair.
Whether this Idea is the right one
or not is decidedly open to question.
Ideal love affairs, preclude jealousy al altogether,
together, altogether, and where absolute trust and
confidence exist there is no room at
all for the green-eyed monster.
It, is only when the course of true
love ceases to run smoothly, or where
the passion is an unlawful one, that
jealousy creeps in lik. a canker at the
root, :
One curious attribute of the jeal jealous
ous jealous woman who- plans to sweep her
rivals out of the way is that she gen generally
erally generally shows a marked lack of brains
In her methods. Jealousy is popular popularly
ly popularly supposed to arouse a diabolically
clever Ingenuity In the breast of the
jealous fair one but, as a matter of
fact, it seldom doe's anything of the
sort. . .
In my opinion, jealousy makes wom women
en women do the most stupid things in the
world I Not only does it blunt all
their finer feelings, but at the same
time it causes r. curious confusion of
mind, which fails to take the proper
grasp of consequences and which is
utterly Illogical and childishly reckless
in its workings.
One has only to glance at the daily
papers to see this fact practically illus illustrated.
trated. illustrated. The schemes of the jealous
woman are the most childishly imma immature
ture immature in the world, and in almost every
case fall to pieces and bring speedy
retribution on her own head. For not
alone does the victim suffer. The
worst generally comes upon the plot plot-.
. plot-. ter herself.
Love very often does bring a cer certain
tain certain amount of jealousy In its train.
But at the same time it is entirely up
to ourselves to curb those feelings and
to keep them from outward and visible
sign ,of expression.
Moreover, it is perfectly true that,
although love generally does admit of
Jealousy, the latter can exist and flour flourish
ish flourish pretty successfully without love.
A woman may be desperately jealous
of the attentions which a man pays
to another woman without In the least
loving that particular. man. :..'-. ,.
i Jealousy may spring from hurt
pride, or from balked hopes, or from
the fear of what people may say, quite
.as frequently as it springs from love.
4 Therefore, the last analysis, we
may most assuredly claim that jeal-
ousy and love are two distinct and
v quite separable affairs. Philadelphia
Inquirer.

To the question. "Why do we grow
old?" many answers have been given.
Meischnikoff suggested that we are
poisoned by the absorption of the pro products
ducts products of bacterial activity in the large
intestine, for this brings about hard hardening
ening hardening of the walls of the arteries and
also corrupts our bodyguard of
wandering amoeboid cells so that they
become traitors, turning upon the
cells of the central nervou3 system.
Others have suggested other modes
of autointoxication. To some it has
seemed enough to refer to wear and
tear of hard-worker organs like brain
and heart, liver and kidneys, for a
chain is no stronger than its weak weakest
est weakest link. Others have referred to the
waning activity of the all-important
organs of internal secretion, and
others to the important fact that there
is no multiplication or replacement of
the cells of our central nervous sys system
tem system after a very early date in our life.
It may be pointed out, however, that
most, if not all, of the theories break
down because they do not admit of
all-round application. Thus It is
plain that many animals that are not
troubled with a large intestine never nevertheless
theless nevertheless grow old. Furthermore, the
theories seize on symptoms rather
than on causes, for while it is good
sense to refer to wear and tear, the
question arises why all animals do not
exhibit the perfect recuperation to
which some at least have attained.
Prof. Child, of Chicago, has been
working for 15 years or more with
simple 1 creatures called Planarian
worms. One of the features of their
life which he brought to light is their
capacity for periodically becoming
young again. Thus it often happens
that a Planarian separates off the
posterior third or quarter of its body,
which speedily grows into a whole",
while the diminished original heals
itself and grows a new tail. When
a Planarian is starved it can continue
living on its own resources for sev several
eral several months. Its cells become smaller
and they also become fewer, but life
is not surrendered. Such facts have led
rof. Child to a survey of the animal
kingdom, the result of which Is to
show that there is a much wider oc occurrence
currence occurrence of rejuvenescence than has
been hitherto realized. It occurs
especially in connection with vege vegetative
tative vegetative multiplication, but there- are
other occasions In which the creature
becomes younger in whole or in 'part
by lying low for a season. Perhaps
this may be part of the value of pro processes
cesses processes of dying back and rearrange rearrangement
ment rearrangement which occur in winter in some
animals and in many plants.

Blood Transfusion.
This month's number of La Revue
describes a new method of transfusion
of blood, an operation often necessary
under conditions which do not always
allow certain precautions to be taken.
The method is due to Prof. Luis
Agote, an Argentine surgeon, and su su-cessf
cessf su-cessf ul experiments have been made
before the rector of the Sorbonne, the
dean of the faculty of medicine, and
several professors and doctors.
"Blood Is taken from the bend of the

Investigating New Serum.

ly newly discovered serum which they believe
will eventually be able to restore a

Electric Lamps in Verdun Fighting.

of the New York Times, electric pocket
lamps have -played an Important role
in at least one engagement around Ver Verdun,

Mr. Homebody "Called Down" When
He Took Notice, and "Roasted"
When He Didn't.

"Why are you looking at me like

that?" Mrs. Homebody inquired of her
husband, according to the Brooklyn
Times. j
"Wtu.t have you been doing to your

hair?" It looks different," said Mr.
Homebody, who had just come in.
His wife put down the book she had

been reading, and released a sigh, t

juooa-ness gra-cious r she ex-1

claimed, "can't a body do a little thing I

ike fixing hair without being stared

out of countenance and put through ;
the third degree? I haven't been do- j

ng a thing to my hair. I was simply j

n a hurry this afternoon and piled a

ittle more or less on the sides; that's

all. I didn't suppose it was conspieu

ous. Gracious I'm all out of breath

explaining. You notice every little
thing."

Mr. Homebody extricated himself by

saying it "looked nice" and let it go
at that.

A week later Mrs. Homebody went

to the hairdresser's, and when that
deft person had finished with her she
regarded herself in the mirror with

justifiable satisfaction. That evening,

at dinner, although the soft glow of
the shaded light pleasantly enhanced

the hairdresser's art, friend husband,
sitting opposite, said never a. word.

Mrs. Homebody stood it as long as

she could.

"Of what use Is it," she said finally.

to try to look one's best in this

house? Ever since you sat down I've
been waiting for you to say something,
but I suppose I might wait till dooms-
day. Don't you notice my hair? Doesn't
it look different?"

Mr. Homebody stopped eating and

looked, but, manlike, he overdid it.

"Have you got to gaze at me as long

as that to make sure?" asked Mrs.
Homebody; "why, I should think you

could have told in half a second. I

really believe I could come to dinner
in a powdered wig and you'd look

squarely at me all through the meal
and say nothing to show that you saw.
You never notice a thing." I

"I'm sorry, dear," said Mr. Home

body"; "I did notice that your hair
looked different, but

"But, if I hadn't spoken, you'd have

kept it to yourself," was the way his

wife finished the sentence. "Good gra

cious, don't you know that a woman
likes a man to be observant and to
tell her when he takes notice?"

First Persian Newspaper.

The first copy of what purports to

world has just been issued in New

York under the title of the "Persian

American Courier." The only cause
for astonishment in this connection
is that no such publication has ap

peared heretofore in the greater city.
Practically every other nationality,
language, and dialect -is represented
by the New York press, inclusive of
Lettish, Finnish, Plattdeutsch, Slovak Slovak-ian,
ian, Slovak-ian, Slovene, Croat, and Arabic. The

editor of this latest comer says that

he has struggled with the four hun

dred and four small and four hun

dred and four capital letters of the

Persian alphabet and reduced them to
the dimensions of a linotype key keyboard,
board, keyboard, which finally made his publica

tion possible. Seeing that there are

about six Arabic newspapers in town

and that the Arabic and Persian al alphabets
phabets alphabets are closely related, the -editor,
at any rate, had several models by
following which his work must have
been greatly expedited. New York

Too Popular.
The "Full" signs which are to be
put on the Baltimore street cars re recall
call recall the story told some years ago by
a man of that city who visited Paris,
but who wa- acquainted with no
tongue but his own. He related to a
friend how he made a point of going
to all the point3 around the city, but
one he never succeeded in getting to.
He was the more determined to go
because it was evidently a very
popular place as every car going
there was loaded to its capacity. But
none would stop for him in spite of
continued waiting and signaling. "And
so," he concluded, "I never got there."
"What was the place?" asked the
friend.
"The sign on the cars was 'Com 'Com-plet,'"
plet,'" 'Com-plet,'" replied the disappointed one,
"but Tve never seen Complet yet."
And he understood why when his
friend explained, after a somewhat
explosive smile, that "Complet" signi signified
fied signified only that the car was full, and
was not allowed to take on more passengers.

Miss Gassette is known as the painter
of portraits fine enough to be hung
In the Paris Solon, but it was not for
that that General Joffre received her.
It was because, leaving her art, she
devoted herself to inventing devices
to make wounded soldiers more com comfortable.

did she contrive to make war victims
easier that French surgeons asked her
to write a textbook on the subject.
Not long ago she went to the front
to introduce a new surgical bandage,

pressed expressed a wish to see the clever young
American woman.

knights errant to rescue fair ladies

used to. All the same, there is yet
much work for knights errant to do,
and any man can be a knight if he
will. There are plenty of women,
some fair and some not so fair, but all
with hearts to ache, who need help
against abuse, overwork, extortion

as knightly and often more necessary

The Entente Allies are inclined to

LLOYD-GEORGE AND LINCOLN

Lloyd-George, the hew British pre premier,
mier, premier, is a student and admirer of
Abraham Lincoln. In his speech be before
fore before the House of Commons Monday,
in regard to the German peace pro proposals,
posals, proposals, he quoted from Lincoln's
Gettysburg speech. He said:
"Any man or set of men who wan wantonly
tonly wantonly or without sufficient cause pro prolonged
longed prolonged a terrible conflict like this
would have on his soul a crime that
oceans could not cleanse. On the
other hand, it is equally true that any
man, or set of men who from a sense
of weariness or despair abandoned
the struggle without achieving the
high purposes for which we entered
it, would be guilty of the costliest act
of poltroonery ever perpetrated by
any statesman. I should like to quote
the words of Abraham Lincoln under
similar conditions : 'We accepted this
war for an object, and a world object,
and the war will end when the object
is attained under God. I hope it will
never end until that time.'
Later Lloyd-George made a re remark
mark remark that was worthy of Lincoln
himself. He said:
"It is not what a nation gains, but
what it gives, that makes it great."
FLORIDA
The following verses are somewhat
shy of rhythm, but they have some
really truly poetic ideas:
Where the peerless hands of nature,
With a touch of heavenly due,
Blends the colors of the rainbow
Like no artist hands can do.
Where the splendor of the sunrise
As it rides the ocean's crest,
Its beauties loath to leave us,
Till they dip beneath the west.
Where the sunbeams passing over,
Kiss the orange and the lime,
Turning green into the golden,
With a touch of the divine.
Where the mockbird sings the sweet
est,
Lulling nature into rest,
While the moonbeams filter softly,
To his mate down in the nest.
Where the bee is every busy,
As from flower to flower he plods,
Taking sweets supplied by nature,
Making honey fit for gods.
Where the northern winds surrender
When they kiss the waving pine,
And turn to gentle zephyrs
Among the orange and the lime.
Where the orange blooms eternal,
Shedding sweetness to the wind,
And the golden fruit is hanging
In clusters from each limb.
Where the Maker paused and lingered
In his work so great and vast.
And surpassing other efforts,
Made sunny Florida last.
