What is the Heal Proposal?
By SIARQAHET IIU13UAIU) AVfill.
AccorJliiir to tho modern youiic woman.
tho Idem marrlaKo proposal comeH from 1
the mwii wlioso salary Ih sufficient to
guarantee her n comfortuhlo future.
Tho heart Is not robbed of Its dues;
but In all tho letters which I have re
ceived from readers of this paper, whllo
tho discussion of the Ideal proposal was
golnff on. only flvo have totally Ignored
tho money consideration.
Rime, do Tastevln, tho churmlnif mem
ber of the French colony here In Now
York, asserts that tho only way the
money question can bt regulated and a
happy future necured for tho young peo.
pre Is to havo the young woman cither
possessed of a dowery over which sho
has complete control after marriage, or
to have her learn a trade at which sho
could earn enough money to support her
self If the wolf of misfortune or poverty
should appear at tho door.
"A great dual has been said against
the dower system which still obtains
In my country," said Mmo. de Tastevln.
"In tho south of France, no matter how
poor the bride's people are, tho young
woman does not enter the marriage state
without bringing something of her own
In goods, chattels, money or cattle.
"The dower may consist of half a dozen
cows or sheep. Among the poor classes,
unfortunately, this Is all turned over to
tho husband and ho has full rights over
thn property, But In other grades of
society and especially among the well-to-do
middle classes, tho bride's portion Is
ifor her uso alone, and can go only to her
children after her death.
"Say what you like, the groat troubles
which arise between husband and wife In
America generally come through wrong
division of the family moneys,
'The American man Is the most gen
erous husband In the world, but even
ha frequently feels tho strain upon the
purse strings made by tho extravagant
wife. To my mind, at least, tho woman
who has a dowry of her own enters tho
marriage state with a feeling of satis
faction and solf-respect which tho bride
who l Utterly dependent upon her hus
band cannot feel."
"But, Mme. do Tastevln, not even girl
