TEE WICHITA EAGLE,
A Contented Old Maid Discusses
tho Marriage Question.
A Few PTomlnent Hints on the Education
5 of Girls Marriage a Sad tottery and,
at the Beat, a State Fall of Cares,
Worry and Anxieties.
I have met with very few unmarried
ladies who have not appeared to me to feel,
after the age of thirty, that their existence
was thoroughly comfortless and wretched,
writes an "Old Maid" in the New York
Ledger. Many have I heard express them
selves thus openly; and that such is the
fact can very easily be learned by an ac
curate observer of the human countenance.
It is also certain that three out of every five
of the young ladies of the present day must
remain unmarried, because so many young
men think they can not exist on less than
two thousand a year when married; and
how few men there are with two thousand a
year compared with the number of young
ladies in the country 1 There are sometimes
five, six, eight girls in one family; gener
ally all tolerably pretty, and most of them
pleasing and accomplished women many
possessing talents of no ordinary stamp
yet, perhaps, in our drawing-rooms these
lovely and accomplished beings are com
pletely neglected by the other sex, "be
cause" (I must repeat the sentiments I
have heard from thousands of young men
of fashion) " I never talk to girls. I dare not
pay attention to unmarried women, because
I am not a marrying man; my friend, ,
flirted with so-and-so, and was accused of
behaving improperly. I don't like to ex
cite false hopes; I shall never marry, unless
I can find a wife with at least two or three
thousand a year, because I am much richer
unmarried with tho small fortune I have."
It is of no use to quarrel with the state of
society as it is at present constituted, for
we can not alter it; but I think it might be
beneficial to give a few hints on the educa
tion of women, which might perhaps be
useful in procuring them, in a state of
single blessedness, as it is very falsely
called, a greater share of happiness, or a
less load of misery, than they at present ap
pear to me to possess after the awful age of
A girl at thirty is called an old maid. She
goes to a ball, and generally sits neglected
all the evening, or dance with some gentle
man who has been asked often to dine at
her father's house, and who, perhaps, re
marks: "Miss is rather passeo a good
old girl and I must do my duty there ; and
now I shall dance with the beautiful Miss
." My heart always bleeds for the
mortifications I see endured by these poor
old girls continually. There ore certainly
some single women whose.talents have made
them as much considered in society as they
ought to be; but, then, I have generally ob
served that they have fortunes, or have
had advantages above others to bring them
into notice, and to give to the natural ambi
tion of the human species some scope of
I will suppose a case in which there are
four girls a moderate proportion in one
famih and two sons; and I will suppose
their father possesses live thousand a year.
I will suppose ono of the four young ladies
very pretty, one tolerably pretty and the
other two rather plain. They have been ed
ucated, in all probability, as tho greater
proportion of Amorican girls are. First of
all they go every Sunday to church, and are
moderately rich, perfectly honorable, up
right and well principled. It is only for
their own happiness that 1 would propose
anu change in the education of a class for
whom I entertain so high a respect.
These four young ladies have all been
brought up with the idea that they will be
come wives and mothers, and are taught to
cherish these natural affections which, if by
some remote chance one out of the four ever
docs marry, will make her so amiable and
lovely as a married woman. They are all
allowed to read modern novels, at least all
such as are considered to have a moral
tendency. .Now, I maintain that there is
scarcely one of these works which does nQt
impress any young woman with the idea
that happiness can alone be found in love
The heroine is very amiable and perfect,
surrounded with admirers, all contending
for tho honors of her least notice ; but where
is the novel which represents four poor,
pretty, unnoticed girls, who are destined
to pass their young yars without so much
as one admirer amongst them! Year
after year passes their bloom and
beauty fade and my four lovely and
accomplished warm-hearted beings, hav
ing seen all their youthful castles
jbll one by one, become listless and
unhappy. They have little in life to in
terest them ; one dies of a complaint of the
spine; another lives many years on arrow
root and calf's-foot jelly, and is enveloped in
flannel even in July; a third is under the
care of a Dr. S. for indigestion; and, per
haps, the fourth, who is made of tougher
materials and born with less feeling than
the others or, perhaps, from having some
thing to occupy her mind, in preparing the
arrow-root for one sister and ordering tho
hard dumplings prepared by Dr. S. for the
other outlives her sorrows and disappoint
ments; and, if she takes an intorest in her
brother's children, or a share in their edu
cation, or in something which gives vent to
those affections which are implanted by
nature in the breast of woman, she becomes
This, then, appears to me to be the se
cret too much neglected in female educa
tion. Teach the girls, by all means, that
one great source of happiness consists in
the indulgence of virtuous affection; but
do not teach them that there is no affection
capable of producing this happiness ex
cept such as may be felt for a lover or hus
band. If the heart be properly regulated
it may take a warm and sufficiently en
grossing interest in many objects less inti
mately connected with it. Marriage is a
sad lottery, and, at the best, is a state full
of cares and anxieties. Freedom and inde
pendence ought not to be lightly parted
with, or set down as possessions of little
A TELEGRAPHER'S YARNS.
Some Queer Mistakes in Which Dots and
Dashes liare Tijrured.
I spent last evening with a gentleman
who at one time was a Western Union
operator and he told me a good many things
in regard to this mode of transmitting
thought by electricity, which both inter
ested and amused me, says a writer in the
" It is wonderful," said he, " how much
imperfect knowledge and misconception
there is in regard to this subject. One day
during the time I was operator at a small
station in the northern portion of this State,
a lady friend apologised to me for faults,
etc, in a telegram she had sent me. offer
ing the excuse that it was the first time she
had ever sent one. I assured her, of course,
that there was no occasion to apologize,
since the onjinal document did not, of
course, come Into my hand. Oa another
occasion an old lady came into the ofSce
and presented me with a telegram duly ad
dressed. I immediately began to open it.
'"VThat are you about! she exclaimed in
surprise- I explained to her as politely as I
knew how that it would be impossible to
send the message without first seeing it.
Then,' she replied, giving me a piercing
look, 'hand it back to me. Do you suppose
I'm going to let you read my private aSaars!
I'd sooner not send it at alL' And she left
the office in high dudgeon.
" TThile there are comparatively few peo
ple so ignorant of the workings of the tele
graph as the two ladies I told you about, yet
occasionally quite amusing ignorance is dis
played bv people ono would tcink should
know better. Serious blunders take place
occasionally, also, from the imperfect writ
inz of the receivine-ODcratcxs. Yon have.
of course, heard the story ot the famous
doctor who was sent on a fruitless journey
b receiving a telegram worded: 'Don't
come too late.' As originally handed into
the telegraph office the message read:
'Don't come, too late;' but in the trans
mission the signal denoting the comma was
omitted, and hence the great inconvenience
the recipient was put to.
"il made quite a bad mistake myself once,
which impressed upon my mind very forci
blythe importance of being verycarefuL
In the office in vhich I was then working
there was still one of the old Morse instru
ments. A Harrisburg firm sent to one of
then country agents: ' Send rails ten feet
lengths.' Now, the letters t' and 'e' are
in tho Morse code represented by a dash
( ) and a dot (.) respectively; but in trans
mitting the message the instrument in re
cording the word ' ten ' signaled two dots
instead of a dash and a dot, and the word
was thereby converted into 'in,' the mes
sage reading : ' Send rails i n foot lengths.'
" I once saw a book in which an operator
had gone to the trouble of making a list of
some of the mistakes made in the transmis
sion of messages, but I have forgotten most
of them now. I will recall as many as I
" An old gentleman who had left his wig
in the train and desired it searched for, had
his message so unmercifully changed by
either the sending or receiving operator
that the word 'wig' became 'wife' when
the telegram was received at tho destina
tion. Diligent inquiry and search was of
course made for the missing lady, but with
out avail. Another story tells of exactly
the revorse happening. A gentleman being
detained out on business telegraphed
for his wife, but was strangely surprised
and mortified to receive by the next train his
"A strange mutilation of n telegram,
hardly to be accounted for, happened where
an operator to a small station was surprised
to take from his instrument a telegram ad
dressed to the 'Master of Miseries.' He
was, of course, very much puzzled how to
effect its delivery until it suddenly dawned
upon his mind that it was intended for tho
' Master or Mistress ' of a school in tb.8
" A large number of erroneous messages
which pass over tho telegraph can be at
tributed directly to bad penmanship of the
sender. For instance, the person who tele
graphed to the broker with reference to cer
tain stocks which he desired to have trans
ferred was alone responsible for the mutila
tion which occurred in his message.in which,
with graphic brevity, he described the trans
feree as of - Lurgo, Fife, widow.' The bro
ker received it as a large, fine widow.' In
this connection I am reminded of being m
Benjamin Harris Browster's ofllco on ono
occasion when a messenger boy came in
and handed him a message which he had
written and sent to the telegraph office but
a few minutes before, and as he did so. said:
Mr. Brewster, the operator wants you to
read this.' The ex-Attorney-General looked
hastily up from a law paper in which ho had
been absorbed, and seizing the bit of paper,
scanned it critically for a moment and then
said in a loud and angry tono of voice:
' Who the ducc wrote this at any rate V No
wonder the operator had given it up in de
spair. " Not a few marriages have taken place
between telegraphists, the courtship hav
ing been carried on through tho medium of
the wires. Nor need you wonder that
Hymen sometimes plays a part when I tell
you that a certain love code exists, known
only to the parties most interested, and it is
even possible for a sentimental operator to
transmit a kiss instantaneously. I have
seen it done.
' On one occasion I also knew it to be
used for a very different thing from mak
ing lovo. It was in 18S2, and I was spend
ing my summer vacation with my uncle,
who lives near Williamsport, Pa. He has I
a very large house, and my room was on
tho third floor. One night about two
o'clock I was suddenly awakened by hear- I
ing a faint ticking which sounded not very j
uniiKtt a uiiegrapii msuuiiiuiu, uniy it was
" In an instant, from the force of habit, I
was wide awake, although it took me at
least half a minute before I realized that I
was not in my ofiice and had been called
over the wire. I listened and the ticking
began again. 'Come up; all right,' is what
I heard. I pinched myself to make sure I
was not dreaming, but I again heard
the ticking. 'Come,' is what it said
this time. I jumped out of bed, and seizing
my revolver, started toward the door. As
I did so I heard some one rapidly running
down the stairs. I opened the door and ran
down the steps, and reached the sitting
room just in time to see some ono jump
through the window and run. From tho
echo of the rapidly-retreating foot-steps I
could tell that there were two pairs of legs.
Burglars had pried open the window and
got into the house. One of them had evi
dently come up-stairs and given his com
panion on the second floor tho telegraphic
signal to 'come up,' which meant that tho
coast was clear, and that all tho occapanta
of the house were asleep."
THE BITER BITTEN.
A Practical Joko "Which Camo Near End
ing: in a TraRCily.
A young physician went to see his cousin,
an army officer, out upon the great plains.
The officer was given to practical jokes, and
the young doctor, being a genuine "tender
foot," was a most promising subject- One
morning, says the Youth's (Companion, the
host gravely proposed an elephant-hunt.
"What," said the doctor, "do you have ele
phants out here?"
"Plenty of them," replied the host. Prep
arations were at once begun, and by nine
o'clock a party of youngsters, ripe for tho
fun, were after elephants. "When about fivo
or six miles from the post the doctor was
sent through a thicket of "wait-a-bit"
thorns, of which he knew nothing. Antici
pating rare sport at his plight on his return
the host sat on his horse waiting, when ha
heard a shot and was startled by loud cries
He galloped through the glades and ar
rived at a small prairie opening of an acre
or two in extent, around which the doctor
was frantically urging his pony, while only
a few yard behind was a huge wild Texas
bull in full charge.
All the manliness of the host was aroused
by this real and unexpected dancer of his
friend, and, without a moment's hesitation,
he dashed in and fired a pistol shot. In an
instant the bull turned upon him. His large
American horse was unequal to the emer
gency, and in turning was met full in the
side by the horns of the beasL
Both horse and rider were lifted for one
instant into the air. and then came down in
a heap together. The hcrse was dead with
out a struggle, one horn being completely
through his body, 'the other caught ia the
bones of the chest. One leg of the rider
was between the horns of the bull, pinned
fast between his head and the body of the
The whole hunting party soon assembled.
They were afraid to shoot the boll, less his
struggles might further injure the maa
pinned to him. At last his jugular vein was
opened and he slowly bled to death. Hsa
horns were then cut off, the horse lifted
and tbe now nearly dead man carried on a
litter back to the post.
Though no bones were bokes, he paid the
full penalty ot his joke, act only with the
