Professor Sumner's disctissi.m (1f mar
riage mingles j ht. jH'try and the science
of the sex relation with remarkable se
sults. Me states the cold sociological dictum
that in the beginning among barbarous
nation there was no marriage cere
nion.v : that, even at present, the i-m nee
of the ceremony is an agreement be
tween a man and a woman to live with
each other to the exclusion of all others:
that man is l.-d to marriage by a nat
ural want wiin It calls tor graiilh-ntiou
and that for man m-iniage means little
while for woman it means maternity.
In the same breath witli these proposi
tions he attempts to consider justly the
iiie.iiip.tsM.d poetiy of the marriage le
lati.iu. It is not surprising that frnm such an
iinu.-itur.tl juxtaposition should n suit
the stiange conclusion that only lo per
cent id .-.II maniac's are hap:y; that
novels mkI with marriages b.-eaiise to
carry them farther would destroy ih. ir
merchantable qualities by making them
pessimist ;; ih.it :i per .cut of wcdih-d
pci-s.uis fail to rcalie ihe ideaN with
which, they eiitend the matrimonial re
lation. A scientist and a jioei are essentially
antagonistic The scientilie mind ami
the jioeiic temperament may exist in the
same person, but no man can exorcise,
them .simultaneously without botch. ng
The poet whose lovelorn lassie dies
of a broken heart cannot -m sist with
tlie plivsh-i.in who on the burial certif
icate v.rit.-s anaemia" or "phihisH

death. Tlie poet who sins of the nil,
red rose must sternly "order to heel"
the thought that the icd!-ss of the lose
is due simply to Ihe absorption by tin.

llush of health be must keep down the
sordid la t tha: tlie s.i-rotioiis of the
subject are normal and abundant and
that the ovrelory rutu-iious are per
formed regularly and peiieelly. When
he lalks ol the laugh of she brook as It
runs to the sea he cannot abo talk of
the friction ot the shallow water against
the bed of the stream which cause-, u,e
sound he terms a laugh.
These i-ellectioiis probably acinunt for
the falsity of Professor Milliner's con
clusions. That th.-y aie false observa
tion proves abundantly. .Novels (-nl
with mariiages bccaii-e the satNlled,
even, comfortable, contented tenor of
tiiat life supplies no material for an
epi-odii-al. int. resting novel. The
iiiurse of that true love wbi.li tuns
MiiiHitli supplies as little matciial tor a
novel as tie- libit that "they lived Ir.ppy
ever after." So novels end with mar
riages. I lofessor Sumner should keep his
poetry and his seien. in separate vials.
