PROVHRBS ABOUT WOMEN. The Germans eay: Listen to a woman's brsA opinion, but not her second." This p' embodies the world-old theory that a wo«..»n'» ^tuition is better than her reason. The French say: "A wife is a perpetual tor. Bent," and A man of straw is worth a woman tf gold." The absurd French cynicism th. t'renoh distrust of womankind, is as well por- trayed in those two proverbs as in one of Guy de Maupassant's storiea. The Spanish leve their women, but in a light and jesting way. Thus their Droverbs_ make •port of her. For instance: '• Women," wind, and fortune are changeable." "If you have any- thing to proclaim in the open market you need only whisper it, to a woman." "Be on your guard against a bad woman and never trust a good one." 44 There is only One bad wife, bu every b 'island thinkshe1.s got ht-r." Bitter and contemptuo is the Italian's idea of woman. They say in taly as they suck des- perately on their miaerably-made Government •igars: "He who loses his wife ani a brass farthing has only lost the latter." The Chinese objeotion to women ia that ebt talks too much. f' A Woman's tongue is her lword, and she never permits it to rust." The American proverbs are kinder" Women oan keep a secret, Dut it takes a lot oi them to ft," and" Women paint to hide their blushes ♦
