MEAXIXG OF LIFE.
Its True Interpreters Arc Young
Women, Says Dr. Walsh.
It la to women, and especially young omen,
that 'the world must look fcr the meaning of life.
acnordJne to Dr. James J. Walsh In (is lecture
yesterday on "Joan of Arc," In his Mendelssohn
Hall c-our** for the benefit of Mother Alphonsa's
"Young- women see Into life early."' said the
doctor. "I^ater thej- become colored by convention
and social Influences, l.rt when they ■" very
young they pee the ineanlng of life, if they will
but follow It.
"Joan of Arc," went en the lecturer, "at the ;
time she became commander in chief of the army ;
of a nation was seventeen— the 01 Iv Instance of i
the. kind in history. A girl of sf\f/nteen! Doesn't j
that seem surprising? Vet did you ever notice J
how roans Shakespeare make* hl» heroines? '.
Henry V. practically his only flawless hero. Is
young, and then* is hardly a play without some (
strong young woman In it, who. when catastrophe ;
ccmes. almost saves those ■ c loves and would. If
it were sot for their weakness.
"Think of Juliet, not fourteen; Portia, not over
nineteen: Imogen, feventeen: Cordelia^ under six- i
lew Always Shakespeare put* the burden of :
ethical responelblllty en tlicse young girls.
"You might say that was Sliakespeare'a way \
that he knew the interert which attaches ever:.'
when -..••■ to "tweet sixteen." and used It
deliberate!; to gain sympathy for his characters, j
In that event he was playing a trick on us, for I
the, dramatist must above a'l t-e true to life.
■■But if you lake the other groat dramatists— ;
Sophocles. JRachyius. Eurlpede»--«nd again you ;
come upon this curious thing, itie extreme youth j
of the heroine*.
"Antigone— why. Antigone Isn't quite fourteen :
when she elect* io co with her blind father on hi*
wanderings: not sixteen v.li»n she he^om^s Jl:e

they «•;■.«■ that it i<= the you women who pee.
'!'.;•« Is the way of nature and of nature's God, ,
and tli<» great dramatists realize it."
tor. Walsh quoted Mark Twain's opinion that |
loan <■>( Arc waa t!i» "only absolutely unselfish
character In hlstorj." :l! l! '■''■ went '"' ''' tell the
audience how Mark Twain came to write a life of
Joan of Arc— ""tlio most reverential life of h<-r i
there Is, • Kcept those by ROHM of her churchmen
contemporaries. Mr. Clemen* first looked into her
life, ticcr.use lie fancied ii offered material for a
humorous book. Bin the further he got the more
impressed 110 was. He concluded he could not
make fun of Joan of Arc. j*nd he wrote this ' '■■ of [
I'r. Walsh gave a very appealing account of t!;e '
girl's If*, which, he said. was r»markaliN' in that
every fact had been sworn to under i>ath by eye- .

that the campaign which she conducted, military

THE COST CF IT.
To the Bdltor of The Tribun*
Sir: How shall a woman mend her ways that
she may live and work and spend not all *>«•
earns? Go to the via*, then boarder, and learn of
her. Space costs money, •■«> be content with a tiny
room. Hoarding houses are musty and fusty, n
rent a tiny apartment nil alone. Pood, too. Is -v
penslve. M cater for yourself, at least for lama
meals of each day. And so slialt thou save money
and invest In Stock* and be rich in your old ai?e
But now you will not be having a good time. Wlie;i
health goes and friends die and anxieties pr«s
hard on the weary brain, then you'll need the un
avoidable, normal comradeship of cane friends and
acquaintances, who** ralm presence will "teas*
■ <•■! out of thought." And unless you are a rare
character, living alone will react In unwholesome
ways upon your dl»j>osit!on. A woman who lives
with bar kind feldom grows peculiar and self
centred. It is the danger of solitude* that one must
think too much of one's own Interests and irit»u
l.itioi.fc. Hermit life i« not very g»otl for any one
Him living costs, and how is the woman to earn
money enough to pay the cost of it? Surely not
In teaching, unless .ihe be 0110 of the exceptional
women. To see th« tiny hall bedroom on the
fourth floor, from which a dainty woman emerges
e««-h morning in spotless garments of her own,
making— and perhaps even washed and ironed by
her own active hands— to teach or *truiigl« with
business problems all day. is to gain a new re
aj)i!-t for the self-supporting girl.
Wiint is the sweetness of independence that
makes this young woman, for whom there waits a
welcome In her father's home And for whom there

mer* phyaical comforts in the »ay of warmth' find
