In view of the many complications

education AM) MA RBI AHE.
It Is an Interesting discussion thai
Is now going on In some of Hie maga?
zines, and not a few of the newspapers,
as to the effect the higher education of
women have upon marriage. The Bos?
ton llernld treats the question in the
following manner:
"Three of Hie leading magazines for
Ihe present month discuss the higher
education of women from the mar?
riage point of view. They each show
that ike college postpones marriage, if
It does not set It aside altogether. The
Bryn Mawr graduates do not marry
tllitil late in life, and those of Vassal
College do not. for the most part, show
any hurry In that direction. In an es?
timate drawn from the statlctics of
liftccn leading colleges, CO-cdllC-ation
and for women alone, It Is found that
2S per cent, have married. In England
the educated womn.ii Is less given to
marriage than in this country. There
are not reasons why these women
Should delay marriages a good while.
They are not of the marrying bind.
Tiny have a higher Ideal than others
and it is dilUcuR for them to satisfy
It. Then it takes them some years to
adjust their education to the actual
conditions of life, and to assert their
natural solves. At the same time. It Is
too early t? draw strict conclusions on
this subject from the statistics already
The New Orleans Slates Is inclined to
the opinion that the reason why highly
educated women are not given to mar?
rying Is due to the fact that her edu?
cation enables her to make her own
living, and be independent of mascu?
line support. Viewing the matter
from a sectional standpoint. It gays that
it must not be forgotten that In the
Kastern Stales and especially in New
England, the women largely outnumber
tho rougher sex, because the flower or
the young manhood of those States
have gone West, married and grown up
with a family and tlx? country. And
as they are constantly going West the
material left behind Is not such as to
tempt a highly educated woman to se?
lect a husband from It." *
There may be something In what the
States has to say as to New England,
although It Is not complimentary to
that class of the male fraternity who
Inhabit that Bectlon of the country.
But so far ob the South Is concerned It
docs not appear that the higher educa?
tion of Its women have had anything
to do with their marrying. The moth?
ers of the South are among tits best
educated women and hundreds of men
of the Southland owe thelF education
and success in life to the teachings of
their mothers, and If the higher edu?
cation of women was a prevontatlve of
marriage this would not be so.
