Ireland has no Tom Moore today, but she has bards a-plenty, and doubt- less there are other and greater poets to come. One will probably put into deathless verse the love story of Mi- chael Collins and Kitty Kiernan. The story of these two women--Sarah Curran and Kitty Kiernanand tlir broken romances, is characteristic of Ireland's own history.Toronto Star Weekly. THE REAL MAN Some time ago, we printed a pointed paragraph, "Wanted, a wife, or the kind of woman a man seeks as his partner." Someone sends us a desertion of a real man. See whether you meas- ure up to the standard. The real man is tender and sympa- thetic. Because he is strong, he would never stoop to take advantage of weakness. He reverences the body which God gave him. He keeps it clean and would scorn to have it house a soul that wasn't decent and worthy of its dwelling place. He has a keen scn of direction. He's sure he was put on this planet for some purpose and he means to do his best to work outt hat purpose and to work it out well. He reverences women and wants their best--not their cheap and tawdry worst. He knows how to value the joys of the mind. He is tolerant of those that do not believe as he does and eager to learn from them if they can teach him. He loves the great out of doors and finds his greatest enjoyments in the fresh air. He respects athletics and l beams. THE GUARDIAN their health building, good sports- manship promoting powers. He keeps his word and believes that other people are inclined to keep theirs. He is kind to old folks and is friendly to children and dogs. He is capable of controlling his feel- ings and the stronger they are the more joy he takes in keeping them in leash. He is as much interested in a wo- man's brain as in a man's, conse- quently he admires a girl for her ideals and does not strive to break them down for his own momentary enjoyment. He knows that. today is only a ti unit in life's span. He is glad to en- joy today, but gladder to put it to good use and see himself advancing through today's efforts. He admires a woman because she appeals to him. And that appeal has to be made up in great part of mind and spirit. He does not sneer at the tawdry obvious devices by which sec- and-rate women strive to attract.. But he holds his mother too high to fall at the feet of a girl who does not sug- gest that she might care for a home and motherhood. [ He is strong and ardent. He is an-He xious for happiness and success. is willing to work. He marks a fair n bargain with life and people. And he exists today. Perhaps not i'n vast numbers. But as men can create a finer standard of womanhood by de- manding itso women can do away with "The Regular Fellow" and bring into existence "The Real Man"--if they want him.
