It Is (lo',il)t loss true that nuVBes. hiiviug earners offering abundant employment and good pay, can ho and are more exact Ing in their reciuimmonta of a suitor than are glr'.s who have no future in sight except mafrimoay. Tiiulr celibacy cannot bo very largely dun to lack of opportunities (o meet men for their opportunities in this respect are notably good. Any attempt to analyze tho causes of this low marriage rate must bo futile until some data are available, for tho factors involved are doubtless mostly complex psycholog'icai inllu-ences. But there is one simpler causf that may be suspected-aKe. Ten or fifteen years ago tlie ago of admission to good trainiuf, scliools was from 21 to 25 years. The average ago of girls at graduation was certainly not less than The nti^'scs who graduated from the four large schools in classes prior to 1!J02 were therefore well toward the end of tlin most miirriageable period in a woman's life at the time of their graduation. Lately the ago standards of training schools havo been steadily reduced. "0 perliaps being an average miniuiuni, althouKb muny schools will now admit pu|)ils ai the ago ot 19. The average age or graduates is therefore now al'out according to those who are in a position to form an intelligent opinion. This decrease of age alone shiniUi tend to incrcfiso the marriage rate of tiie more roc 'Ut graduates as compared with those a decade or two ago.

It appeals to men as much as to women. It adds to the enjoyment when dining and it is not put into the bill. The Itinch is of the finest and the nappery spotlessly white at all times. We seek the patronage of those who prefer these features. We serve a satisfying lunch at noon and six o'clock and our afternoon teas are popular with those who entertain or like a cup of chocolate or tea with delicious cake or pastry when down town shopping- We wish you to know how careful We are in serving not only lunches but-ice cream dishes. We insist on cleanliness and quality. All bur fresh fruit flavors are the.best we,can procure. We see to it that you will onjoy our lunches, teas and refreshments generally in every detail. ell Hoinnie It Is a war l)i-ead-made in accordance with the regulations of the food board and we can conservatively say "it is the host broad in tho city."
