I know I what utilities 1 myself consider j most attractive In a man, but I should hesitate to offer my own personal j opinion as tho judgment of women gener nllv. A writer in The Criterion Is, however, more courageous, and perhaps the conclusions she advances ll take it. for granted she is a woman) will throw some light on the query of my Narberth correspondent. The man who charms all women musi have the suggestion of bodily strength she , declares. It. may be a strength which lias been impaired, but the signs of it must be there. The ,man whose face Is "peaked." whose eyes are not straightforward, whose hands are thin and dry and sallow never charms a woman. If a woman Were always to tell the honest truth (which I am now doing) she would say that the man she found fascinating was the one she never laughed at: who bad no point on which her sense of the ridiculous could rest. He is not necessarily serious himself, except in all things which concern her. She is delighted to langh wilh him. A woman notices, first, the way a man stands on his feet. The strength and power of his legs and feet may typify to her his position iu the world. The man who trots along may be of an angelic disposition; have the face of a Haphael and the intellect of a sage, but no womau ever worshipped blm. She wants him to step boldly. Women seldom find a smiling man fascinating. They are apt to distrust, or to find commonplace the man who is too readily good humored. They admire a more complex nature, one which ' can discriminate. The "ladies' man," tho creature who seeks women's society constantly, and Is altogether gallant, they treat with small respect. They are necessary to hlui, not he to them. It Is the mau who seems firm, decided and strong, and yet who can consider her. who wins a woman's heart and holds her allegiance.

"It was the queerest situation ! have ever been In. and one not without danger. The f)1Jot jm'mP,f,trly ordered full steam ahead and after being carried about half a mile down stream we broke,through the big floe and resumed our voyage."

The clear green of her 'Twilight' (the picture 'The Evening Hour,' now at the Academy) has a mysterious depth, a wierd magic, a charm iu the rolling waves which surge upon tho sand in circling harmony under the yellow spot of the crescent moon; the violet evening tints iu their calm lines gain against the green a new lutensity, and their reflections throw into the pale clearness of the green a mysterious profundity, Relationship with several modern artists can easily be discerned in Miss Este, especially with the land-scapist Charles Ouilion. But a veritable personality must be recognized iu her work. Her cathedral portal is luminous in the setting sun; her blue stretches of viscous mud through which winds the green stream, leave a melancholy charm. The composition Is decorative and the intention of the group of pines in the foreground is readily Understood, but a complete monotony would perhaps have iutensiiled the Impression. These canvases are by a thorough artist: it Js through harmony of color that Miss Este obtains this intensity of poetry that permeates her work and makes it individual." flounces of exquisite antique lace and trails of orange blossoms. The bodice had transparent yoke and sleeves of Brussels lace, the former edged around with flowers, and with the gown was worn a very beautiful Brussels lace veil, the one her mother was married In.

It isn't because- he wants to leave her, although she says it is. It Is slut-ply bemuse he made his pluil without consulting her. Had she done the same be would have been furious. The fascinating inun would have said, quite frankly: "Oun-nlng wanes me to yacht for a week. Would you mind If I went?" And she would have thought of the thousand things she wanted to do, and would have packed bis Inips guyly and bidden him godspeed. But he who charms knows the feminine nature. A man a woman loves can have anything she can give him that he will ask for! It's the not asking that inukes all the row. If a womau knows absolutely that she ran do as she pleases, It is her feminine nature to abnegate herself. She gives the road to everybody, secure and happy In the knowledge that she can have It when she wants It. And that fact the charming man knows. Your really fascinating man has nothing to fear from acquaintance. His charm is strengthened by propinquity. Why name his qualities? But one lovers him; he makes life interesting. And he Is the only man who ever knows the full charm of any woman's personality. Framing the Bride's Picture.
