THE SELECTION OF MATES
ANOTHER ADVOCATE OF
Editor El Paso Herald:
El Paso, Tex., Jan. 29.
It Is refreshing to be afforded the
opportunity occasionally (and it is alto
gether too occasional) of reading a
communication from the hand of one
who dares reach out from the trodden
paths to deal -with questions so full of
Interest, yet so foreign to the general
trend of everyday discussion as is that
question of the bearing of children and
the selection of mates by the women.
Occasionally (and It is only on occa
sions), some one has the good sense
and thoughtfulness to write as does
"A Mother" in The Herald. This wom
an, whoever she may be, has touched
the core of a vital question yes, of
several questions. Divorce, crime, In
sanity and the general good and wel
fare of society at large all are em
braced Jn the solution of the problem
of marriage and of child bearing.
The Divorce Problem.
A great deal of discussion has been

PROPOSALS BY WOMEN
indulged in for several years now con
cerning the divorce evil. Great men
and great women have demanded legis
lation which will curb the separation
of men and women by the divorce route.
But legislation will not solve the prob-
i lem at all, nor curb divorces. Or, if
legislation should be enacted which
will tend to restrict the granting of
divorces, or the making of greater diffi
culties in the" procurement of divorces,
a gre'ate'r evil will be the outgrowth,
We are having a vast amount of dis
cussion concerning the increase of
crime, and doctors of moral ills are

of the public with proposed rerjedies.

Law enforcement' Is well enough In
its way. The law should be enforced.

The increase of crime is due to crime
inherited. The penitentiaries of the
country are being crowded to suffoca
tion and convicts are being leased to
relieve the congestion of- prison walls,
but crime is in no wise abated. The
criminal begets a criminal, and that is
all there is to the problem. But I do
not mean to say, of course, that all
crime is inherited crime.
Insanity is on the increase. "We ar
rest the insane man, try him, and con
fine him. When we incarcerate him
we have, perhaps, left at large some
of his offspring. In due time, his off
spring, or at least a certain percentage
of them, are likewise tried for and
convicted of insanity. But the branch
continues to spread.
"We are living in what is perhaps the
most enlightened age of the world's
history. Never before, we may feel
assured, has enlightenment been so
general; and never before, we may also
feel assured, was general enlighten
ment so necessary and vital to the wel-
fare of the human race.
Crime has kent rvace with the ad-
j vancement of goodness, paradoxical as
the assertion may seem. Or perhaps
it amounts to this: That the chasm
between crime and goodness, morality
and immorality, is widening. "We un
derstand crime better than we ever did
before, we" abhor it more than ever
before, and yet we stand apparently
helpless while we behold its steady in
crease. "We are discovering that prison
walls do not eradicate crime. "We en
force the laws because we must, not
because we hope to thereby solve the
question of evil, or stamp it out. But
it must be stamped out, forf there,, is
no other hope, and in order to stamp
it out we must stop the breed.
Now, I say that your correspondent
is telling the unassailable truth when
sne asserts tnat we ao not give me
care, thought and attention to the rear
ing of our children, generally speaking,
that we give to the dogs, chickens,
i cats, etc, which we seek to breed. How
wonderfully has the general standard
of fine stock been raised! What has
become of t::e old time Texas longhorn
steer that used to roam the plains?
Supplanted, of course, with highbred
Choosing a Unubnnd.
"Well, would the right of the woma
to choose her husband tend to uplift
the standard of the human race? I
say that it would. It has often been
ass-ted, by way of humorous response j
to the urging of this right in behalf
of a woman, that she does the choosing
anyway. That she does, in a measure,
is true. In other words, she may en
courage her suitor if she likes, or she
may, on the other hand, show him in
no uncertain way that his suit is not
acceptable. But the fact still remains
that she may not "talk sense" to a man
until he has taken it upon himself to
say to her that he wants her for a
The real truth of the matter is that
there Is altogether too much romance in
the matter of marriage. The woman
must be shy, or coy, or modest, lest she
appear too forward and willing to suit
the man, and when he proposes she
must fall into his arms and accept him
lnstanter, lest she seem too unwilling
and 400 doubtful of him. She may then
make an exceedingly t poor contract,
while she might have made an excep
tionally good one, could she have talk
ed "sense" to the man whom she most
Modesty to Be Cherished.
Modesty in a woman is to be cher
ished next to her virtue, but we demand
of her a false modesty that is harmful
to civilization and cruel to the human
soul. "Why could not a modest woman
modestly say to any true man: "I be
lieve that I would like' to be your
wife?" "Why not?
And why could not the man and the
woman then sit down like sensible be
ings and talk about marriage, discuss
ing it in all Its phases, with that same
degree of common sense, earnestness
and seriousness'with which they would
discuss the purchase of a piece of real
estate or the buying of a horse? Is
it not strange that something in our
education requires an entirely differ
ent procedure with reference to the
matter of marriage?
"Would this sort of procedure in any
degree lessen the tendency to love? On
the contrary, love would be exalted,
dignified and purified. And this last
assertion I make with every confidence
of its exact correctness. There would
be far more happy marriages, many less
divorces, and a great improvement in
the temperament and intellectual and
physical qualities of the human off
spring. Slating of Sexes.
God made the sexes for mating pur
poses, and Godprepared the mind and
the eye of the woman, no Jess than that
of the man- fPr a Proper choosing of
ner raaie. ana nomin? in uie aiw.ua
of life suggests any reason on earth
why the woman should not have the
privilege accorded to man with refer
ence to the feelings and desires of -her
The sexes should mate with a view
to the welfare of the offspring of the
union. If a woman is sensible she
would like to know, when a man has
asked her to be his wife, why he de
j sires to -marry her, and she should be
1 not only pleased to hear him say that
it was because of his love, but she
should be disappointed did he not add:
"And because I have studied you phy
sically and mentally, and am sure you
would be the mother of healthful, hap
py, well balanced children."
Many a woman would marry the man
of her choice, which she has not other
wise an opportunity to do, and many
a man would be most happily mated,
were, the woman on an equality with
him "with reference to the matter of
proposals, and in the truly mated man
and woman we have the strongest de
fence asrainst all social evils. 'and the
j most hopeful assurance of better things
to come in the way of a higher civiliza
tion. A Father.

TWO MEN HELD ON
Policeman Draws Gun to
Subdue Alleged Offender.
Frank Eden was arrested by police
man Staggs about 3 oclock Sunday
morning on a charge of burglarizing
the Acme saloon on San Antonio street,
near Oregon street. He had three
bottles of whisky on his person when
arrested, the police say.
Antonio Garcia was arrested late
Saturday night by watchman Tom
Spivey and docketed at the city jail
on a charge of theft under $50. He was
charged with having helped himself to
some clothing In the Emporium dry
goods store, at the corner of Overland
and Broadway streets.
Jose Calderon was arrested in Pew's
shoe store on a charge of theft under
$5.0. He "was leaving the store with
three pairs of shoes, the police say,
when officer Caplinger, who was off
duty, happened along. The man put up
a fight and Caplinger had to cover him
with his gun before he could be quieted.
Detective Stansel came along while
Caplinger had the man down and he
was removed to the city jail.

Change Procrrnm So "Poverty" Is De
bated After Married Men Talk
of Wedded Bliss.
It was a mean trick the way the
program fixers arranged the program
at the Y. M. C. A. Forum Saturday
night. After the married men, includ
ing J. H. Maurice. R. L Moeller and
Arthur Marston had told of the beau
ties of married bliss by way of reply
to the speeches made the week before
by the unmarried contingent, someone
switched the program around so that
the married men's talks were followed
by a joint debate on the vital ques
tion, "Is poverty a greater builder of
character than wealth," or something to
the same effect.
There being no real plutocrats pres
ent, naturally the poverty end of the"
argument won. Tjt was a fine thing to
think of, was that thought that pov
erty has its recompense in building
character if it did not build skyscrapers
on down town corner lots. But some
way the married men think there was a
reflection on their married state in th'e
selection of the topic for debate. The
unmarried members are blamed for the
switch in the arrangements as Dr
John R. Macarthur, of the A. & tf. col
lege was to have spoken instead of the
