American Chivalry.
Toward women the American man s
attitude In ftne. She is neither his
deity nor his doll. He simply treats
her with deference. His chivalry has
as little to do with saccharine utter-
ances. scraping feet, and bended
knees, as has his patriotism with hys
terical shrleklngs and the waving of
ensanguined flags. He is stronger In
bis silence and apparent submission
to the ladies of his household than the
most blatant vulgarian who prates of
domestic domination. Place aux
Dames Ib more than a phrase to the
American man'. His Inborn respect
for her • rights" often causes hltn to
sacrifice his own God-given privileges.
Upon the face of the earth or upon
the waters thereon, says Minna
Thomas Antrim In Llpplncott's, exists
no more chivalrous being than the

The burning of the art treasures In
John Wanamaker's home, of manu-
Bcript Lincoln and Washington letters,
of rare books and pictures Impossible
to replace, is a public as well us a
private loss. Of such objects no man

The loss of the manuscript letters re-
calls the burning of Major Lambert's

The amazing thing in connection
with the endless chain system of
prayers, begging letters, etc., which
cause so much annoyance to their re-
cipients and to postal authorjties Is
that anyone can be Influenced by the
dread of ill fortune befalling him if he
falls to obey the injunction to con-
tinue the chain by writing nine other
letters. The simple and effective way
of stopping the nuisance is for the
recipient to drop all such mail into
the waste basket and then to forget
it.
