"No girl need marry now unless she
wishes, and half of the girls shouldn't.
"Shouldn't wish or shouldn't marry?"
"Shouldn't marry," firmly replied Miss
Kutherlne Ascherman, the handsome
bachelor maid well known In the Intellec
tual ee,8 ot New York and Now Haven
"Not every woman Is adapted to mar
riage, Only every other woman you meet
Impresses, you as being good wife ma
terial. Perhaps she Is not physically
strong and hat state presupposes un
steady nerves. Marriage built upon a
foundation of unsteady nerves Is a state
of mutual torment. Another woman may
have all tho Sterling qualities except
patience, If she does not possess this,
either from, inheritance or training, she
had better forego marriage, for men,
and particularly husbands, are Irritating
"If a woman Is flighty and visionary
and full of Ideals sho would much better
cut across the fields of singleness Instead

punctures them. It Isn't wnc nor tee

"No woman should marry unless, she
has a working knowledge of housewifery.
In this I think your American customs
re inferior to thoe of my German an
cestors. When my sisters and I had fin
ished school my father said to uso: 'Now
It is time that you learned to keep house.
" 'Certainly,' I answered. 'Wo will
learn from mother.
" 'Not from mother said he. 'She would
be too lenient to give you thorough In
struction.' Ho sent us to spend a year
In the home of a friend, where wo did
actual practical housework every day
under stern, unrelenting surveillance. I
thought at tho' time it was very hard, but
I know now that It was the best thing
father could have done for us. Wo were
prepared to administer tho affairs of a
household if wo wished. We were at least
eligible as candidates for matrimony.
"Everything was favorable except the
advent of the right man. A man of
wealth appeared as a suitor, and my
good American friends said, with deep
satisfaction, 'How fine. Katherlno's fu
ture Is arrnnged.' nut it wasn't, for
w'hat,' to-them, -seemed nonsense, but to
me was a sufficient reason. I didn't love
"We Germans aro romantic and I thank
heaven for It. It was quite. Imposslble'for
me to consider 'settling Irt life' with a
man for whom I had no romantic affec
tion. That is the only start nature gives
to make marriage tolerable.
"I declined the man of wealth, and then
to a chorus of my friends' walling, 'I told
you sos, something happened. Something
grave, but not Irretrievable. I found my
self without home and money. Hut
through my own efforts I soon estab
lished mysolf In that position women so
much desire In this country financial In
dependence. "What I have done other girls can do.
There's always a chance to earn a live
lihood at something, especlajly If you
have been well, trained. I hope your
father and mother have done their duty
and 'seen to that. No girl need marry for
food and shelter and clothing. Hideous
thought of barter! And the food nnd rai
ment and shelter will be handsomeer and
more comfortable if she has learned some
one thing well and applied It to the prob
lem ot livelihood earning.
"Keep your singleness and self-respect
until the man of your heart arrives" I
say to all girls. "Don't Insult or wrong
any man by making him a meal ticket or
a human paying machine. That would
be unjust to both of you. Don't marry
because you aro tired of working. If you
are tired It Is probably becauso you or
laxy, for work of some kind Is the law of
health and of life. If the rich man
doesn't come along, live a happy, free and
Independent life, filled with the best sub
stitute for tho best thing In life. The best
thing Is a good home, shared with a good
husband and children. Falling this, which
you will fall if you marry from any other
motive than the real one for marriage,
love, still make your life triumphant. Do
congenial work, the substitute I have
mentioned, and make it as successful as

MISS KATHRHINE ABCHETtMAN.

against marrying unlet they 'huve a working knowledge of houeowlfery.

Its association with a great comet, one
of tho most Imposing apparitions of Hal

Damocles over frightened Christendom

comet was a good omen after all, for tho

By the way, Bobble, said Pa to me,
While I am up here In the country I
think I will havo to buy sum honey ft
send It hoam. 1 itevvor tasted any nicer
honey than the honey I om eating now.
The bees that made this honey must havo
had a sweet dlsposlshun, Pa sed.
So after we had our brekfust Pa A mo
went to the place whare tharo was a old
farmer wich had a lot of honey to sell.
All the way to tho farm Pa was talking
about how much he knew about honey
I used to keep bees myself, sed Pa, when
I was a young mun back lit Wisconsin
& the mlult I sco tho bees I can tell thu
kind of honey that thay make. Thu
ml nit I look a. bee In the eye, Pa sed to
me, I know just how much he knows
about honey. If ho looks at you steddy,
sed Pa, I know he Is a honest bee that
doesn't becleovn In slltclng his work,
but if 'he looks kind of shifty, like Uyp
the Blood, I wuddon be sur-prlscd If his
honey wuddent bu fit to eat,
Wen we got to ware the honey was Pa
culled the old farmer oaver & sed I
want to buy sum honey to send back to
All rlto, the old man sed, that la what
me & the bees Is hero for- How much
honey do you want?
I want to get a whole case of It, Pa
sd, fourteen boxes, the salm as my
frend John Dick got here last week. Ho
sed that your bees was as honest and
bard working as the day Is long. Tho
only thing Is, sed Pa, the days Is glttlng
shorter now, so maybe the bees ain't on
the level any moar.
Doant worry about the bees, sed the
farmer to Pa, thay mode all this honey
along In the summer anyhow. Jest talk
a taste of It Sc. see.
Me & Pa. both tasted the honey & It
tasted fine. This seems to be the reel
artlkvl, sod Pa, but beetoar I take It I
wud like to look the bees oaver.
You can look at the bees If you want
to take a clianst, sed the farmer, but I
can't see for tho life ot me what dlt
ferns It malks how the bees look, as tong
as you llko the honey. Cum on & look
at them If you want to.
You bet I want to, sed Pa. I have
lived among bees too long to git stung
In a blxness deal.
I ain't going to sting you, but the bees
mite, sed the old man. Bo then ho took
Pa oaver to one of the hives, & I stayed
rite whare I was.
All I want to look at Is one of them,
Thare Is one on the outside ot the hive
now, sed the old farmer, Pick htm up
& look him oaver.
Bo Pa plckod up the bee & beegan o
look into tho be's eyea to sea If the bee
looked honest & struts.
I doant know If the bee looked at Pa
In the eyes or not, but I know It ctunr
him on the nose.
