The room*, as a whole, cannot be dainty. This expresses Its furnishings, for moat men de ­ light In a certain amount of fem ­ ininity even In decorations. Some day, possibly, this country and the world at large will avoirs same system of^ustlcs that will not be so complete a trav ­ esty as the one under which we all now suffer. The facts of a case, as the case originally happened, seldom If ever have any bearing on the verdict of the fury.

The Jury Is Influenced In Its decision by which side pre ­ sents the Incident with most force. If Sidney Syme has a more eloquent tongue than District Attorney Coyne, Paaoox win never go to the electric chair, whether or not be slew his wife after pre ­ meditation. If. on the other hand, the district attorney can plead more eloquently than 8yme, Peacox was doomed long before the case started. I should think It would be fairly possible to deter ­ mine the outcome of a case like this merely by weighing the merits of the two lawyers. The Jury doesn't decide on whether or not Peacox Is legally guilty of Bret degree murder; It decides which attorney la the most effective speech maker.

But to my way of thinking that Is too nearsighted. We who are groping at the beginning of civilisation — mental civilization — can only advance the cause of civilisation and the greatest good of the greatest number as we learn more about human belngi and what motivates them to act as they do under certain clreum- ful ly- d ecorated for the man to be well pleased. Unless he Is. he Is not oomfortable — nor Is ths wife likely to be either. It takes com ­ fortable surroundings to put a man at ease so that he enjoys hie home. It Is for the wife to study furniture and furnishings so that the equa ­ tion between the masculine and the feminine type of decoration Is sat ­ isfactory.
