OW THEY MARRY FOR MONEY
Different Prices Necessary to Get a
Husband Among Certain Classes
in New York.
New York.-There are 5,000 Jewish
marriage brokers in New York city
and most of them make a good living
in finding partners for the matri
monially-incined. The price is going
up all the while. The old scale no
longer attracts young Hebrews to
wedlock. One time $100 was consid
ered a good bonus for a girl to pay
for a husband; it has been going up
until it is $500.
Saloonkeeping ranks about the low
est of all on the broker's list, yet, only
a few days ago, a young man, two
years out of Russia. an assistant bar
eeper, refused even to look at a girl
with $1,000. He expected $3,000.
A medical school graduate will not
marry unless $3,000 goes with the
girl. An ordinary college graduate
now demands $2,000. A medical,
legal or dental beginner, with no prac
tice at all, insists upon $3,000 in the
marriage market, while one with an
established professional business ex
pects to receive anywhere from $6,000
to $25000 through the "schatchen."
t is a mistake to assume that only
the poor Hebrews arrange their mar
riages on a business basis. The cus
tom is general among all classes.
All Owned by the Red Men.
Muskogee, Okla.-The per capita
wealth of the Indi'an is approximate
ly $2,130. that for other Americans is
only a little more than $1,i00. The
lands owned by the Indians are rich
i oil, timber and other natural re
sources of all kinds. Some of the
best timber land in the United States
is owned by Indians.
The value of their agricultural
lands runs up in the millions. The
ranges which they possess support
about 500.000 sheep and cattle, owned
by lessees, bringing in a revenue of
more than $272.000 to :he various
tribes besides providing feed for more
than 1.500,000 head of horses, cattle,
heep and goats belonging to the In
dians themselves. Practically the only
