" Providing a Future for Our Daughters
Dy DOflOTKY DIX..
1 .
Ever slnco tho beginning of civilization
men have taken thought of their son's
futures. It has been a poor father who
has not tried to educate his boys, and to
have them taught some trado or pro
fession, or cstab- '
llsh -them In some
business whereby
they could support
themselves und find
some congenial
interest In life.
Singularly enough
few parents ever
pursue this courso
with their daugh
ters. The girl's fut
ure Is left unpro
vided for, on the
cheerful theory
that she will marry
nnd In matrimony
find both a pro
f o s s I o n and a
livelihood.
In tho past this plan has worked out
fairly well, although It has forced tens
of thousands of women Into unwilling and
unloving wedlock, to bo tho everlasting
misery of the men they married, because
no other career was open to them than
matrimony. Still, most women did marry,
but" the time of the universal bridal veil
and, weddings bells for tho fcmlnlno sex
Is over. Thi Increased cost of living, the
prevalence of divorce, the multiplicity of
other' Interests, perhaps the general dls
Inclination of both sexes to relinquish
.tliolr freedom and assumed new burdens,
has caused nn enormous falling off In
the number of marriages,
Tho plain truth Is that In tho present
financial conditions many men find It
Impossible to marry, nnd under present
social conditions many women find H
unattractive to marry.
Therefore, the father of daughters can
not console himself with the reflection
that It doesn't matter about providing for
his girls, for they will before long marry,
because some of them will bo sure not to
marry.
Tho problem, then, of the unmarried
daughter becomes a very serious one.
AVhat Is this wonian with her life before
her, with Intelligence and health and
energy, going to do with herself?
Of course. If the woman Is tho daughter
of a very rich man, or a very poor one,
the question more or less fettles Itself.
If she Is a millionairess, she will find her
interests In society or phllantrophy. If
hhe Is poor, she Mill go to work and bo
happy and useful In whatever occupation
she elects to follow.
Tho unfortunate wonian is tho girl who
belongs to the well-to-do class, whoso
father Is able to provide her with food
und clothes so that she does not actually
nave to go to work, but who 1b not rich

READING, PA. "My baby
girl had eczema for over six
months. It was palnfnl
and Itching, she could not
sleep day or night, ishe would scratch
till blood and water would run down
hr neck. Then it burned her no
she cried for hours at a time. The
right side of her face was one eore

"I got the samples of Heslnol
Boap and Itesinol Ointment on a
Saturday morning, and put them on,
and put them on again In the after
noon and In the evening before I put
her to bed, and she went to sleep nnd
slept till next morning. I thought
I was in heaven the first nlsht, and
by Monday the eczema was dried up

enough for his wealth to give her a career
in Itself.
Such fathers, tender and laving toward
their daughters, deslro for affection's
sake and for pride's sake ,to keep their
daughters at home, and they cannot see
why their Marys and Janes are not happy
nnd satisfied In the family nest. Haven't
they as good as good clothes as their
frinnds and neighbors? and haven't they
nothing to do?
It sounds to the harassed father, vexed
at what he considers the unreasonable
ness of womankind, that ho Is describing
an earthly paradise. Ho cannot 'com
prehend that there are no women on tho
face of the earth more to be pitied than
tho old maid daughters in comfortable
homes.
No lives are so dreary as those of
women who have no real Interest, no real
occupation, who are stirred by no real
emotions, and who sec themselves grow
ing old and gray and withered, wasting
their energies on knitting tidies and em
broidering dollies when they know them
selves capable- of doing bettor things.
Yet when they propose to go out Into
the world and follow some profession or
business and make an Individual life for
themselves, as their brothers have done,
they meet with such opposition from their
parents that only the boldest have - tho
courage to fight the family to a. stand
still and' follow- their own desires. The
more unselfish and affectionate yield to
their fathers' and mothers silly opposi
tion and remain at home "in perpetual'
bondage and vassalage, children th'af
never grow up, but are kept In mental
pinafores even when their hair Is gray.
The Inevitable result of keoolnc any
able-bodied, grown-up woman In tutelage
and depriving her of a legitimate vent for
her activities I bound to be disastrous.
It Is what has made the appellation "old
maid" a term of reDroach. For
woman who has had no business of Jier
own has poked her nose Into everybody
elso's business, and thernhv tii-r,i
trouble. While on the other hand there
are no women more broad-minded, more
agreeable, or better liked than those un
married women whose lives aro filled
full of the absorbing Interests of Borne
occupation in which they and a compen
sation tor whatever they havo mlfcscd In
matrimony.
Another phase or tho situation that
parents overlook Is this, that the lncomo
that suffices to keep a family comfortable
when they are all together will not sup.
port the Individual members In comfort
when they go their separate ways, and
thus many a spinster Is thrown out on
the world with a mere pittance to live on
when her father dies. she knows no
way of making a living, She Is an
amateur at everything becauso she. hae
only helped her moth'er keep house, she
has only helped her sisters take care of
the children, she has only worked n a
lady-like way at everything. Ami thtf re
sult of'thls amateurishness Is starvation
wages.
The time has come when parents need
to fare the real fituatlon of woman In
the present diy. They must realize that
there are Just as many chances that their
daughters will not marry as that they
will marry, and have their girls taught
Just as much ns they do their boys.
And they muM realize, If their daugh
ters do' not marry, that they mun help
not hinder them In finding the kind of
work that they want to do In the world.
For no human being, mile or female, can
be either good or happy who has not
some absorbing (merest In life, some
worthy object.
The day of the pale gray anemic spin
ster, who was content with the husks of
.existence Is gone by. The moflern unmar
ried woman declines to bo the family
murtyr, and It Is time that her parents
cease tiylng to thrust that role upon her.
Tho bachelor woman doesn't propose to
lag superfluous upon the stage, Sho
wants to get busy, and her father, nnd
mother should help her to It.

Nobody will deny that Mis Kltlo Fer

whether It was possible to attain the

"Itather exhausting, I should think,"
vnld the writer,- as she looked at
Miss Ferguson's slender, almost delicate
physique, tho imnll ovnl fare, with the
anient far-seeing blue ryes, shaded by
a musk of rcddlsh-brown hair, carelessly
twisted up In u big knot. MIhh Ferguson
had co mo In from a long rehearsal, and
clad In n black tea gown, that accentuated
her youth nnd ethvreul beauty, nho sat
crumbled up In the corner of a hugo sofa,
"Indeed, It's terribly oxhaustlng," as
sented the young atar. "Hut co are other

harassed women. Chopping Is niost de
magnetizing to me. I return from It a

"Wlmt do you do then, to replenish
the exhausted fountain of personal mag

you," said Mis Ferguson, somewhat
shyly. "These help ine reouperatei to

Miss Ferguson waved her hand around
