See to it that she has plenty of real, honest-to-goodness, worthwhile work to do, and put some heart interest In her L- W-SC 1 iwv" It rs work by paying for it with Dotn money and appreciation. There is no other one thing in the world that is more pathetic than the way in which men's most chivalrous impulse is a boomerang that turns back on thern and slays them.

For when a husband loves his wife his greatest desire is to wrap her up in cotton wool and keep her in a padded, satin-lined box, where she will have nothing on the face of the earth to do but just breathe, and this is their undoing.

Million of hu- bands, looking bewildered at their peevish, fretful, discontented wive, tear their hair over woman's unreason and exclaim: "But wiat more does Maria want to make her happy? Haven't I given her everything? Hasn't she servant to wait on her hand and foot? Hasn't she a nurse to take care of the baby and a governess to look after the children? Hasn't she dressmakers and seamstresses to sew for her? Why, she hasn't a thing on earth to do." And the poor dear man, who ha dona hi very best to be a good husband and make his wife happy, doesn't realize that In depriving her of all useful occupation he has taken away from ber the one Indispensable source of contentment and happiness.

J. Dougherty, membership chairman of the Seventh district, announced yesterday that the contest would be continued until March 15 if the chairman of the Sixth district is willing. The loser is to spend an hour in jail, and in event of another tie Col. Dougherty has suggested that both chairmen go to jail. Of the fifteen posts in the Seventh district, seven have reported a larger membership than they had last year.

Wheelbarrow-- which Isn't, regulated at all by present city ordi-( lances, will appear this afternoon on Monument circle. Participants will be James Men-denhall, commander of Irvington Post, No. 38, and Wilfred Bradshaw, commander of Madden-Nottingham No. 848, of the Amtrican Legion. The uncertain part of the wheel- barrow procession, which will circle the Monument several times, is that nobody will know until this afternoon which one of the men will be seated in the wheelbarrow and whicli one will be between the handles of the implement.

Membership Contest. "The Incident grew out of a wager between the two posts concerning the membership that each would enlist before the new year. Any membership application in the United States mails up to midnight will be -counted and the result of the contest can not be determined until the mall is delivered this morning.

Who are the women who fill doctors' offices and sanatorium, and that enable specialists to drive Rolls-Royce cars? Nine-tenths of them are the idle women who have nothing to do but to explore their system for symptom and make a cult of Invalidism. Did you ever notice how, almost Invariably, as soon as a woman gets money she develops poor nerves, or a bad heart, or a weak digestion, or what have you? So long as she had to get up at 8 o'clock and prepare her husband's breakfast and hurtle around getting the children off to school, and trot off to a new market where the meat was 5 cents a pound cheaper, and when it didn't seem but a minute from breakfast to dinner, she was so busy cooking and scrubbing end sewing and looking after the baby she didn't know that she had a nerve or a stomach concealed about her person. It was only after husband made money and carried out his cherished dream of keeping her In idleness that she found out that sha was the victim of aliments that she had never even suspected herself of having. And who are the morbid, neurotic women, the women whose husbands do not understand them, the women who say: "Oh, yes, John is a good and kind and a wonderful provider, but he isn't my soulmate and I am perishing of heart-hunger?"

So long as a woman is working shoulder to shoulder with her husband, trying to build up their fortune, so long as she is pinching pennies and nursing dimes to save the money to go in the business or pay on their first home, she isn't thinking about her feelings.
