THE BETTER MAN
By MARY PARSONS.
Government Rests with Women.
That the future good government
ot Chicltasha rests largely In tho
hands of the women is the opinion
of Wnl. H. Donahue president of the
Civic league. Mr. Donahue appeals
to the thinking women of the city
to co-operate with the Civic league
is maintaining the high standard of
administration established by the
council of defense. . ..
"Now that the council of defense
is .. demobilized" said Mr. Donahue
"I am in favor of a non-partisan
welfare board invested with political
authority.- as . the council 'of defense
was with military authority. Mar-
tial law made 1 the 'temncil ot de-
fense effective apd'tlie . women vote
Is the only thi'ngf to 'take .its place
and make a civic league or" welfare
board effective. This is an .oppor-
tunity -for women to keep up tho
prestige they gained in the mayor-
alty raCe and I beg them to foster
this ' movement and to realize that
suffrage Is an obligation as well as
a privilege." .
"It is regrettable that the weather
prevented a meeting of the Civic
league last Monday night but an-
other meeting will -be called in the
near future. Meanwhile I hope the
women of the city will Btudy the
matter seriously and be ready and
willing to participate in the affairs
of the city" :.

"Barbara dear I'm so mixed np. I
don't know what In the world to do
please help me!"
"What's tho trouble now child Is
it Sam or Charley?"
"Neither I mean both. 1 don't
know which I'm In love with. I think
It's Sam till Charley conies to see me
and then he Is so good looking
Just like n collar nd and he looks
ut me so deeply you know how I
menu that I think I'm all wrong again
inid it must be he. He's ever so much
more popular with the girls too. Now
Sam never says any of the nice little
filings Charley does nnd he's ever so
blunt sometimes but somehow I doii'i
know. I'm not sure but I think Sam
Is the better man. You're older nnd
wiser than I am Barbara; tell me why
you admire Snm more. I've always
thought you did whenever I talk about
them but you've never said anything.
Please tell me."
The older girl got up and walked
over to the window. For a moment
she did not say anything. Then she
sank into a seat with a little sigh.
"Polly child there Isn't anything In
the world I know against Charley it
wouldn't be fair to say there was for
he mny care for you even more than
I think he does but I'm tfolnft to tell
you a little story if you have time to
"Of course Babs." assured Polly set
tling her attractive little person Into n ;
perfect nest of cushions.
' "Once upon a time" began Barbara'
"there was a girl not n beautiful girl
Just a bright frank cheerful girl I
with a sensu of humor and lots ot
friends. She liked men sincerely but
she was neither very susceptible nor
very foolish and she had seen some-
thing of life.
."There was one man she had known
for a long time and she always ad-
mired nnd liked him tremendously.
"So they went out together danced
together and talked together and he
was very nice to her. She found that'
she could talk to him as she had never
been able to talk to anyone before and
he always seemed to understand. She ! :
began to value his friendship above :
nil her other friends and to depend on i
his help and advice In many little i:
things. He liked to help her nnd as :
the months passed they grew to be bet- :
ter nnd better friends with a clearer
understanding of each other than they1
had ever had. 1 1 j
"Then she went awny for a long '
visit. And he almost made her believe;
that he would really miss her. badly
anil she was very glnjfl. j
"And she wrote to him naturally as i
a child would write to a very favorite i
uncle or a dear kind friend who was (i
older and wiser than she long newsy :
letters about nil the dally happenings :
and she dearly loved to write to him. j :
"He wrote to her twice; then there ;
was a long lapse. Then n third letter j
enme which might have been written1;
to an utter stranger with perfect safe-
ty air nnd weather being the mnln
topics. This was after she had m-
pulslvely written to hlra for help and .;
sympathy over what seemed to her n :
very great trouble and he had failed I
her dismally failed her. She wrote';
to him once more but she never sent
the letter. Sle could not thrust her
friendship upon him If he did hot want
It. . . . ;
"And though she wns bound to -meet
him and did not wish to obviously
avoid him she did not need to tor he
showed no desire for any sort of a
meeting nnd flitted about among the
girls as he had probably always done.
And she tried always to be fair to him
nnd not to judge Mm she liked to re-
member hlin raiher ns a friend who
had died than one who had ceased' to
value her friendship she simply could
not understand. That's all 1 know
about Charley and It's two years ago
he's probably forgotten all about It
. "That's all Polly dear. It Isn't much
of a story but I thought I'd tell It to
you. Somehow from my own stand-
ards It doesn't seem to me as If a man
who would hurt anyone so cruelly so
blindly and with such utter Indiffer-
ence could measure np to quite the
same standard ns a man like Satii who
Is fair and square In everything he
Polly sat still for a long time after
Barbara stopped talking.
"Thank you for telliug mo the story"
she said at last.
A maid came to the door with ti tele-
gram. Polly glanced at the address
seized It and tore It open hastily. In
a moment the paper dropped to the
"It's from Sam" she gulped "and
he's going to the front and he wants
me to tell him before he goes they
won't let him off to come himself oh
