ONLY. PROPER REVENGE
RRBUKINQ THE PRESUMPTION OF
THE MARRIED WOMAN.
Too Many Seek to Probe Into the
Heart Secrete of Their Leu For-
tunate Slaters, and Deserve
A good many Inferences might bo
mado about her own experience In
preserving the tender passion with a
lire husband. To write so feelingly
of the preservative qualities of a dead
lover naturally suggests that a living
spouse gave her cnusn to do some cob
bling at the run-down heels of senti
ment. Dut that did not excuso her
Impertinence! Nothing gave her the
right In the sight of God, man or
other women; nothing excused her.
A cowboy with a record for men
ho had killed finally met his match.
His admiring friends were "stumped"
to find an epitaph to put upon tho
monument they bullded him. At last
they hnd graven there In chaste and
forceful simplicity, "Ho done his
durncdest." I, too, faltering beforo
tho futility of language as a means of
expressing Just what the married
woman does who asks tho Impertinent
question, say, "She does" It Isn't
necessary to repeat tho quotation.
Why, tho married woman who does
It Is a Roclal ghoul cavorting heed
lessly, wantonly, cruelly, hideously
on tho grave of dead hopes, gouging
her question Into tho body of lost
love! Deforo sho married she was
llko other women thoroughfarers.
Afterwnrd, seated In tho matrimonial
antomobtlo, sho dashes headlong
among the ones who still walk and
knocks tho very breath out of them
Apparently, she thinks tho marriage
machlno Is meant to send single
pedestrians scurrying and dodging.
Anyway, that's tho use she makes
If married women forget how It
feels to be unmarried and askpd
why, hero Is telling them! It feels
painful and lonely and sad. It
takes sweetness and courage and nn
enormous amount of tho good, gar
den variety of sense to bnar up grace
fully. And when Idle or thought
less curiosity goes digging and snag
gllng and punching nbout In the sore
and sacred places of the heart, the
suffering and tho rage It creates is too
awful to mention.
What really ought to happen to
th&io Inquiring matrons Is this:
When one asks a maid tho question,
tho mold should scare her Into gal
loping hysterics by looking meaning
ly at tier ono and only husband and
observing, con expresslone "The man
I love Is mnrrlcd!"
Tho matron would THINK. Indeed,
sho would be thinking even while
she hurriedly plended an engagement
nnd piloted her husband out of the
maid's dangerouB neighborhood Pos
slbly that Is all that Is needed Justv
to set tho married Interrogators think
ing to mnko them realize the enorm
ity of their offense. Surely tho utter
violation of good taste, tho Inexcus
ablo Intrusion Into personal affairs,
tho suffering they carelessly create
must mako them pause.
If a wife nsks the ItRASON and a
mnld liiBlnuntes that SHE Is IT. sho
levels tho popgun of her Impediment
Inquiry full in the face of another
spinster And overy matron mndo to
think nnd feel n llttlo wholesome
fear, perhnps will mean ono less
maid, nt least, to bo grilled on tho
hot plate of tho married woman's
If every pretty and attractive un
married woman would follow out this
suggestion n reformation would be
effected that would enahlo us to pre

or our pride or our reputations! It's
