Br FRANCES SHAFFER.
It is quite personal and a bit lmpertl-
tent yet a question often asked the bach
Why don't you marry?
It looks very sharp and Insistent In
print, but sounds far mora pointed when
driven home by. some one who expects an
answer and awaits It with all the assur

And sometimes the soundings go rather
deeper and the question comes:

and the sorrows shared by the fireside,
are the only things that make life worth

Of course, no woman ever makes an

there Is always the bias of the purely
personal; and the personal reason Is pret

Equally of course, the greatest of all
general reasons Is found In the economla
Independence that has helped to make
woman free to follow the promptings of
Judgment and heart at the same time.
And some of us believe that m that free

happens. It Is not only woman who has
been the gainer, but the Institution of
marriage as well.
There always has been and probably
there always will be the marriage In
which the questions of money and sup
port loom very large and supreme, with
loie scarcely an Incident. In earlier
times, when marriage was the one great
port of woman's financial safety. It was
pathetic but quite excusable for a worn'
an to accept the first opportunity that
came. If It promised support. Bat In
these freer days of woman's earning ca
pacity, one has no excuse to advance
for a marriage In which love Is not the
And If the greater economic freedom
has widened woman's life horizon and
has elevated marriage Itself, as some
times worked out. from the mercenary
to a nearer approach to the Ideal, It has
also saed more than one man from, a

ine more vital than duty as the wife's
Among other things learned as we move
along there Is the knowledge that most
of women, and men. too, take marriage
rather for granted, and they set things
in order for the coming event. They
know not when nor where, ask not
whom nor how. but their creed Is "some
day," and It generally comes One can
not say that It Is not the great scheme
of life that every man should seek his
mate and every woman find her happi
ness as wife and mother; but there is a
fringe of women to whom marriage Is
not the expected way of life, who look
upon It as rather remote, only coming
as certain ideals ana realities meex.

If they happen to meet to-morrow, the
day after, or neer, the fact generally
remains pretty much the same
They believe that home, as the Maker
of us all evidently Intended It to be con

best happiness, and that where father,
mother, and wee ones are gathered In
love and contentment, there are found
the manifestations of Ideals that every
normal woman dreams of.
They believe that In the Individual men
the Individual woman sees the embodi
ment of loyalty and love, and. In a more
general way, they know that men are,
as some one put It recently, "a pretty
constant, earnest lot of fellows." quite
worthy 6f all the respect and love that a
woman has to give
And they feel quite sure that the near

with life that comes to men and women
In this many-sided world Is more likely
to be found In the love that radiates
throughout the family circle from top

They know all that, know It well; but
don't you suppose It Is Just because they
know It so well that they are not satis

what. In their mind, constitutes the mak
ing of that happiness?
It may be, as one of the inquisitors
put It recently, that some women remain
wedded Just to ideals, and that In their
fatuous Insistence they miss the things
that count heaviest of all In any wom
But well, the Individual woman Is the
only one who can make true answer to
these questions as they come to her;
and the Individual woman knows that
