RoMa tf the leading newspapers in
this country and England are discussing
the question: "Shall women propose?"
What's the use of saving anything

JCatvbe is often a tender nurse for

EvK.f in conservative old Mexico,
where woman's status is popularly sup
posed to be about the same as in Spain,
the gentler sex is gradually encroach
ing upon man's domain. The other
day two belles of Monterey, enamored
of the same yonng man, decided lo set

duello, and if some meddlesome person
had not given the police a tip there

St 8AS It. Anthony is of the opinion
that we are on the verge of an era of
unmarried women. Our civilization,
she says, is changing. Daughters can
not be supported al home and there is
nothing there to busy them The
wortten used to spin and weave, make
carpets and soap, but now all that is
done for them in the factories. Young
men do not make enough money to
support their wives, and there is such
a craze for dissipation among them
that the women would rather go into a
store for almost nothing than to marrv.

An Omaha judge has introduced a
new feature in divorce legislation. A
man's wife sued him for divorce and
then, becoming reconciled to her hus
band, abandoned prosecution. Her at
torney presented a bill of $.00, which
she refused to pay. He then sued the
husband for the bill and recovered, the
judge holding that divorces are a neces
sary of life. It is difficult to see how a
divorce, which the wife herself de
clared that she did not want, could
have been so considered. If husbands
are to be liable for their wives' divorce
bills, a responsibility of serious impor
tance has been added to matrimony.
The county of Fresno, Cat, boasts of
