-The man or woman who marries an
Invalid is taking tVic longest shot on
earth at connubial bliss.
(The World's Highest Paid Woman

;a man who is inflicted with an incur
i able malady and that she wants to
I marry him. Her parents naturally
object to the match, but she is going:
on; with the wedding on the principle
that a year or two of marriage with
him is better than a lifetime of mat
rimony with any other roan,
. V-Tjus would be a plausible argu
ment for doing , a fool thing if the
'.. girl bad only herself to consider,. But
there are her father and mother, who
;xnay not relish . having a widowed
daughter thrust back upon them to
support in the course of time. Above
'! all, there are ' the possible children
that may be the result of such a mar
riage, and who are pretty sure, under
: such conditions, to come into- the
; jvcrld handicapped by feeble bodic.3
or brains. A woman may 'have the
,' right to take any sort of a husband
6he wants, but she hasn't a right to
give her children a sickly and neuro
tic father.
. I It is easy tosee how a sentimental
and sympathetic girl can be willing
to marry. a man who is an invalid- In
addition to whatever charms of man
ner and mind he may have and some
qt,--tne most aengnuui men on eariu
are cursed with weak bodies he ap
peals to the eternal maternal that is
in' every good woman.
She wants to mother him. to . fuss
over him, to take care of him, to do
for him the thousand little things y
which a woman delights in showing
her love. His very dependence upon
her fills her with an overflowing ten
derness towards him.
; In spite of all this, for a woman to
marry a delicate man is nearly al
ways a terrible mistake. In fact, it is
not too much to say that it is invar
iably a mistake unless the, man is
rich enough not to be dependent on
his own exertions for a living, for of
all places in the world where money
Us needed it is in the sick room. .
' The lot of no woman is so fffrlorn
and piteous as that of the wife whose
; husband is too ill and feeble to even
F attempt to fight the wolf away from
the door; and who has to see him not
only dying; but in his dying hours tor-
tured with anxiety for those he is
! leaving beliiifd.
Tor is the woman who marries the
sickly man always the benefactress
to him that she expects to be. Just
as often she is a f urden that crushes
him down the sooner into the grave.
Having to support a family may force
Jiim to have to work longer hours
than he otherwise would, or. keep at
a job that' is injurious to him. With
a wife a man may not take chances
art employment that, the single man
way, and so the invalid who has given
hostages to fortune cannot indulge in
the rest, or the roaming about from
climate to climate, that would pro
long his life.
So far as happiness is concerned,
the woman who marries an invalid is
taking the longest shot on earth at
connubial bliss. HusBands are kittle
cattle to get along with at best, and a
tick one can make a sore-headed bear
look like a living model of suavity
and amiability.
- The truth is that illness does not
improve the disposition and agree

i novels that invalids are patient and

body : who would deliberately qualify
for this role Is entitled to a nice pad
ded cell instead of a marriage ring.
V The man who , marries a delicate
girl does just as silly a thing as the
woman who marries a sickly man. Of
course, it seems very romantic to
him to think of taking a frail little
creature and cherishing her ' and pro
tecting her arid she calls forth in him
all the best and most altruistic in his
nature, just, as the invalid man does
in the woman. - i
. Unfortunately, however, real life
has a way of dissipating halos, and
the man who acquires an invalid wife,
finds out that he has sold himself in.
to slavery to the doctor, and the sanF
tarium, and the ; specialist, and the
tlrug store.
'All that lie can make goes, to sup
port her invalidism, and instead of

nothing out of the way to see women
smoking In New York. Even in the
finest restaurants, Sherry's on Fifth
'Avenue, for instance, the women sit
at tea by the open . windows, the
smoke from their cigarettes, in price

ing out across the pavements. In
many places ? it is the exception to
find . a woman who BoesnV smoke.
In the south and the west, a woman
who smokes is socially ostracized;
her reputation goes at the first puff
cf her cigarette. Yet some of the
finest women I know smoke, many of
them are mothers of devoted fami
lies, all are hard workers, highly in
telligent, thoroughly charming. : :
Yet I advise women against it. ; It

it? A woman does odk charming

"A high class automobile, such as the
Packard or Tierce-Arrow, occupies,
when cased, 540 cubic feet of space,
which is a conservative estimate. Into
540 cubic feet of space could be packed
500 50-pound bags of four. Now, while

have to admit that it would be easier
to live, without an automobile than to
live without bread. Furthermore,
