Writer Questions Idea Con-
cerning Sixth Sense.
Only an arch-heretic would cast
doubt on woman's Intuition. 1 confess
to heresy. Unquestionably this sixth
sense exists, but I think that It Is over-
rated, Lytlla lluig writes ln the Wash
If woman's intuition were so uncan-
uily developed as It Is commonly rep-
resented to be, her advantage over
tunu would be Incalculable. In emer-
gencies her decisions would be more
prompt and wise than Ills, she would
niorw readily detect false logic, she
would Judge character unerringly, and
ao be better protected against the de-
signs of the unscrupulous. In reality,
more women than men .ire victimized
by auave Impoators.
If women were so highly intuitive
they would excel In the law courts. In-
tuitional perception being a natural
force, women would leap to swift but
sound conclusions while trained and
experienced men were stiimbllngly en-
denvorlng to sift evidence.
As speculators they would achieve
richea, or by their advice enable men
to achieve them, yet In truth any
trader, man or woman, who bought
and aold by Intuition without studying
the markets would be ruined.
Had women this divining gift n0
politician would make a move without
consulting some accomplished woman.
Many men have, Indeed, acknowledged
the aid rendered by their wives and
mothers, but always the women pos
sessed superior Intelligence and they
helped by the exercise f reason and
Judgment, not by mysterious short
In domestic and social life women a
superior Intuition Is seldom apparent-
They do not secure more falthnii
friends than men do, they are not more
succeasful In selecting servants, they
do not adjust themeelvea more hap-
pily to the caprlcea and tempers or
their associates, nor more quickly per-
Ire the consequences of unwise
words. In all these thing* there are
great Individual dlfferencea. but the
differences are a matter of tempera-
ment, not sei. .
In that crucial test, the selection of
a husband, women's mistakes are fre^
quent end lamentable. Men. who are
confessedly devoid of Intuition, are
often fascinated by unworthy
but rarely are they so blind as a wom-
an enamored of an unworthy man. in
whatever guise the deceiver comes she
cannot use the mask or detect
charncter behind It.
I believe that to overestimate her
power of Intuition does woman H gn*
injury. It prevents her from cultivat-
ing Judgment and relying on It. From
her youth she Is encouraged to believe
that she Is endowed with a special
talisman, that she possesses occult
methods of getting at facts, and as s
result she makes frequent and dis-

"Look here!" almost shouted the
youth, rising and towering over the
president, "what do you take me for?
I'm not looking for help from anyone;

her off with a dime for all I care. I'm
man enough to see that she behaves

"Well. I must admit," drawled the
president, "that you're the nearest

"Fine, agreed the youth. "I'll give
