This story tells the tragedy of a life of disappointment hard work
unsatisfied ambition and final failure
This woman had more spirit courage and energy than most men I
She says of her reason 1 found out it was easier for a man to make
a good living and having a living to make I didnt waste any time on
theories
It is easier for a man than a woman to make a living by working
for wages The easiest way for a woman to make a living is to get
I some man who has proved that he can make a living easily to support
y her The big salaries rarely go to women The big prizes in business I
t or the professions are seldom a womans
8 Industries which women almost monopolize pay hardly half the
t wages that mens industries pay For the same work a woman school
l teacher is paid less than a man Women cashiers typewriters stenog
f raphers and clerks receive 40 per cent to 60 per cent of a mans pay
These are facts Do they not prove that womens natural occupa
tion and means of support are in the home and that their entrance into
wage earning occupations has the effect of lessening the number of men
who are able to earn enough to support wives and rear families I
1 It is doubtful whether the condition of women as a class has been
t bettered by their entrance into wageearning employments More than
1 a fifth of all the women in the United States are now working for wages i
l and the percentage is increasing Many of these are married women
Many women have to continue working for wages after they marry
since their husbands incomes are too small to support them
If there are to be homes somebody must keep house A boarding
house is not a home A hotel is
not a home A home is an entity
a family unit It is somthing more
than a partnership something in ad cans
dition to the mere fact of matrimony
It is difficult to make out how
i f
a home can be created and main
tained if both the man and the r
woman spend their days working ytPM
a for wages somewhere else Also Awiec yla y
how are children to be born and 9
properly reared unless the mother R
gives up her wage earning
l Obviously for women to attain an economic equality with men
J they must abandon the economic handicaps of children and home life

When a Woman Who Has Children and No Wealth Confronts
a Woman With Wealth and No Children Weil Ask Mrs Jarr
i
By Roy L McCardell
0 glad to see you my dear So sweet ol you lO
S come and hog perfectly lovely of you to bring the
dear children gushed Mrs Stryver i
hH was such a nice cool day after that awfully hot I
t weather that I thought Id run In to see you and bring the I
y children before you went away for the summer said Mrs
Jarr Willie Take your feet down off that sofa
eying
They are such darlings said Mrs Stryver but eylns
t nervously the lltte girl reaching for a marble statuette on
J 13 a table nearby
a Dont touch that Emma warned her mother seeing
7
t the apiHallns look In Mrs Rtryvera eye
Wheres de dollys tlwesses asked the little girl
bQTG8Ccaaera It lint n dolly pet Its an ornament said Mrs Jirr
Kith a n < = nta reservation that nude figures were not proper things In the home
esp clntV where children could ace them I
Dont scold the little dear said Mrs Strjvcr sweetly How was she to
know This Implied that objects of art were an unknown quantity In the hum c
bio home of toe Jarrs j
Wo are puritans I must routes said Mu Jarr blandly The old May
flower Instinct is still strong vlth ui
It was whispered tliU Mrs Stryvors parents had come over not In the May
flower but In n modern steamship the steerage Mrs Stryver Instinctively
felt tlili wjs an indirect reference to the tad
Speaking of the Mavflower she saId I was reading the other day that It i
had a voyage of nevrral months duration and lucre was no provision whatso
ever for those aboard to bathe In all that time She had no means of dl prov
Ing 1iat Mr Jarrs ancestors came over In the famed vessel but she thought
this little comment might hold her for a white any way
There was plenty of sea water and you may be sure facilities of some kind
were arranged saul Mr Jarr irldlini up on the rlennllne question as a mat
ter of noblesse ohigt If theres a will theres a way Besides Ive known of
Icorlo with nmiok uaiiuuomi that seldom bent Into tnem except Worn aiovs
Ing them to visitors
Two shot went home the Stryver bathroom being ontorlously a how place
It was terribly warm wasnt It suld the hostess thinking It best to change
the subject Your children are looking well though Isnt It wonderful how
they become accustomed In New York children I mean to being cooped up In i
tenementhouses and the like I
Oh well said Mrs Jarr I couldn answer that you know Of course
our apartments are modest but they are light and airy and very cool all things
considered Hut then we pay a terrible rent too and If one has the luxury of
children YIllle stop klcklw that sofaae must deny ourselves other comforts
Mamma why Is thc ladys face so red asked the little girl and why I i
her hair so yellow
Mrs Jarrs reply wan a resounding slap
I never Baa such a nobs rvant child she said In an aside to the wincing
Mrs Stryver Of course she Is not Used to seeing rouge you know
Has the little boy any nervous affection asked Mrs Stryver biting her III
The boy In question was writhing In the greatest delight and making faces
at his sister In tile plnor joy ot seeing her Mapped Mrs Jarr gave him a slap
for himself that slopped the pantomime and started him screaming with his sister
Oh dear I dont know what makes them act to They always behave nt
home or when they are In the company of nice people said Mrs Jarr I sup
pose Its the weather gets them frettIng
Tosslbly said Mrs Stryver coldly but It must be very trying and then
children are so destructive
ou will be going to
Well we must go now said Mrs Jarr I suppose you
Newport again
This was n sting The Slryvers had endeavored to get In nt Newport but
had been serenely Ignored
Island said Mrs Stryver This
Id just as leave think of going to Coney
was n tilt ot the Jarrs They DID go to Coney Island
ib dear said Mrs Jarr Willie and Kmma say good by to
Yeti ffoodby
Mrs Stryvetr
As she went out Mr s Tan said to herself Poor woman with no children
Mrs HrIers montal comment was Poor woman with THOSE children

the ilorueslli diplomat who can como home at
in the mariiltiB and by the magic of his magnanimity
turn his wifes righteous IndUuatlon Into an altltudt
of meek apology
Of all the twenty types of undesirable hiisliamlt
he Is perhaps the least objectlouablc and the most
amusing
I irdieil If his wife has a strongly developed sense
of humor I doubt if the finds him objectionable at all
isocnccrctrr rm She has always the joy of wondering for whit
Mr Magnanimous is going to contrive to forgive her
It takes genius to transform au indignant wife into a murmurer of
meek apologies to turn the iiccislng arm of justice Inward till she re
sembles a penitent striking her breast In confession Yet that Is pre
cisely whnt Mr MagTionlmous does
Perhaps Mrs Magnanimous has waited up till 12 for her Imsland who
excused himself soon after dinner to go out and get a glass of beer and
who promised to be bael In fifteen minutes Perhaps she has a few re
marks to make when he comes In Four hours cf wnUliIng the clok of
fearing that he has been run over and killed have not sweetened her
temper So all Ihe submerged crltlclm of hIs character and deportment
that four yearn uf marriage have developed in her subfonscloiiaiicra rush
rudiVenly to the cuiface rnd sweep over him Hut do they overwhelm him 7
