THE CASE OF
THE GIRL'S COLLEGE.
Tho American girls from tho big
cities who are advantageously situ
ated for experiments In polite society
do not yet go much to college. Their
brothers go as matter of course. Their
brothers, llko as not, are sent flvo
or six years to boarding-school, end
then three or four years to college,
and then perhaps kept away several
years longer learning the rudiments
of somo profession In which they start
to work at twenty-five or later. But
to keep tho girls off in institutions
away from their mothers, until they
reach so ripe an ago as that, or even
the maturity of twenty-two, is an ex
periment that affectionate parents who
havo social aspirations for their
daughters, and some means of furth
ering thorn, are apt to look upon with
hostility, doubt, or, at best, with
grudging and uncertain approval. Tho
mass of the college girls seems to bo
recruited from tho lesser cities, or
from families whose daughters havo
a doubtful prospect, or worse, of in
heriting means of support, and must,
as a matter .of common prudence, bo
qualified betimes for self-maintenance'
and all tho kinds of self-help, against
a turn of fortune that may leavo
them without a competent wage-earn-irto
These considerations all got due
attention at Mrs. -Brace's dinner-party.
"Send Maria, to college?" exclaimed
Mrs. Van Pelt. "What for? She's
eighteen, and. has been to school as it
is over since sho wes four years old,
tnd to boarding-school three years,
and knows an enormous amount, and
can read and spell fairly, spoak somo
French, nnd read German, and knows
tho English klttgs, and a few of tho
Presidents, and whether Dryden or
Milton wroto the Fairy Queen. Mercy!
Tho child's crammed with knowledge;
what sho needs to know is how to
use some of it. Sho can't talk at a
dinner-party. I want her to .learn to
talk. I want her to havo an acquaint
ance. It won't hurt her to Inspo ' tho
young gentlemen. ' Tho colleges are
nunneries, full of nuns, whoso moth
ers I don't know, busy learning un
important things llko how to cup .up
frogs, and tho pedigrees of tho Saxon
kings, and esehatology, and neglecting
all the important' things like how to
put on a hat, how -to cut up a lobster,
how to keep hair attached to the
scalp, how to talk to a boy, how to
help a mother, how to engago a cook,
whom to rsk' to a . dinner-party. Why
college? Maria 'd come homo In four
years, forgotten by all tho girls she
ought to know, qualified to bo .a
school-teacher and with a large ac
quaintance among young ladies simil
arly qualified, and with a strong and
reasonable Impulse to put her acquire
ments to practical use either by con
tinuing her studies or getting a situ
ation and earning her living. I don't
want her to get a situation and earn
her living. I want her to get mar
ried." E. S. Martin, In Harper's
Magazine for May.

THE SUFFRAGE HUI. O
(The Hawaiian women lftive formed
a hul to forward tho interests of
woman's suffrage In Honolulu. News
When mere man essays to play
Tho game political,
Ho is there to make It pay
Him dollars prodigal.
But woman, lovely woman, I
Sho Is different to that,
Sho plays It -with acumen 1
And a very rakish hat.
It's not the coin she's after,
Nor power to rule the land:
She's not a common grafter,
Nor does sho curve her hand.
She wants the fun of voting,
And a new dress for the day
A bill with sugar coating,
Will pass tho easiest way.
Sho wants the beaty- leader.
Of the Demepubllcans,
To loyo her and to tease her
And to tell her ol his plans.
So voting at elections
Will bo fashionable and gay,
With ices and confections
When women queens tho day.
