Of course, woman's rights are
a failure if woman doesn't avail
herself of her rights This is par
ticularly true of those rights
which come to her through poli
tics; for profane history, since
she took Adamby the ears and
made him eat that apple core, is
replete with demonstrations that
she'll take her other rightsgood
and proper.
We instance a notable failure of
politically empowered woman to
seize upon her rights that has just
been disclosed at the California
city of Daly, whereat Miss Clara
!A. Jess is duly inaugurated and
installed as recorder. Mr. Ed E.
(Masters of San Francisco and
'Miss Loraine A Bander of Oak
land appeared before Recorder
Clara to plunge into the marital
state, take the matrimonial risk,
shake dice with Cupid, buck up
against the double harness game,
etc. Elsewhere they may refer to
it as connubial bliss, the blessed
union of two hearts that beat as
one, happy consummation of the
divine afflatus, and such like, but
round about 'Frisco and Oakland
they figure closer on the uncer
tain possibilities and keep one eye
cocked on the everlasting gamble
in the hymeneal matter.
Well, Miss Clara pronounced
Ed and Loraine man and wife
proper and plenty, and then came
a most embarrassing pause. It
was time for the offiicial officiat
ing to kiss the bridegroom.
We don't know whether Ed's
pucker was repulsive or whether

gers. Anyhow, Miss Recorder
Clara abandoned a right which
has always been conscientiously
claimed by gentlemen officiates
whenever the "bride wasn't too
much off color or hadn't too
heavy a mustache.
Verily, this instance of official
woman's miserable failure to
exercise her right is not only dis
couraging to the suffrage cause,
but it also must have its effect on
that divme institution, called marriage.

world the oil heater, the water

the perfect spear and harpoon
