What becomes of divorced women?
A vast field of unexplored territory is
opened up by the question. Mules are
supposed to seek some secluded spot
where no eye can behold them, and
where death may come to them in peace.
In like manner divorced women are be
lieved to withdraw to some mysterious ;
limbo in which the rest of their lives
is passed unobserved of the multitude.
The belief has no warrant, in fact, and
while it is difficult to tabulate in statis
tical form the different classes of women
who have found marriage a failure, an
approximate attempt may be made in '
this direction, so far as it applies to Los
Angeles. They may be divided into the
following four classes: ,
Remarried within a year. To percent.
Waiting for an offer. 10 per cent.
Fallen into evil ways, 10 per cent.
Devoted to single blessedness, 5 per
cent.
These figures have been complied from
various sources. The divorce records
and the marriage register, the state
ments of the Judges, justices of the
peace, lawyers and court officials ail
throw- light upon the question, and per
sonal inquiry among those who have
been divorced has revealed much that :s
of interest.
The fourth class—the class of per
petual old maids—seems ludicrously
small. It comprises, however, for the
mOat part, those poor women, aged, In
firm, who, alter having endured the
brutality of their husbands as long as
health and strength would permit, ari
content to pass the remainder of their
days single. They are not inclin
ed to tempt fortune again. Their
number, too. Is increased by
those philosophical women who
since their matrimonial shipwreck,
have established themselves in some
business and laugh when marriage is
suggested to them.
"What. I?" they exclaim. "I. who
know th? perfidy of men, and what mar
riage Is?"
Occasionally there retires into the se
clusion of a convent or sisterhood some
woman who has had her hour of no
toriety in the divorce court. She goe>?
with her wrong or w |th her sin, and life's
gates are closed behind her.
And yet, withal, these form only about
five per cent of the whole. The philo
sophic women may some day have her
philosophy shaken. A fair penitent may
come forth from the convent or the sis
terhood purged of her offense. A hus
band may be waiting for them both.
Those women forming the third class
may Jje quickly dismissed. It is com-
P">«ed almost wholly of those against
whom the decree of divorce has been
pronounced. Discarded by their hus
bands, abandoned by their sweethearts,
they descend in the social scale an I
li\e henceforward in the half world.
The "eliglbles"—the second class—in
cludes those who held no matrimonial
intentions when they sought a divorcj.
Their wrongs drove them to take action,
but. when free, they realize that their
experience was not altogether ar.d in
toto unpleasant. They look about
them in the hope of renew ing it minus
the unpleasant features.
The great category of divorced women,
however, is the first class, viz.. those
remarried within a year from the date
of divorce. Of the 75 per cent thus mar
ried from 35 to 10 per cent re-enter wed
lock within a month. The celerity of
these second marriages is astonishing.
The process of marriage is simple.
Every facility is accorded the parties in
the county clerk's office. They stand up
before Mr. San Kutz, the Cupid of the
marriage license office. He is a man of
kindly heart, varied experience and has
a mass of data from which he Intends
writing a work on the romantic side of
marriage licenses—to be, Indeed, a
standard authority on the subject. He
puts the regular questions to the parties,
asking them under oath whether they
are of marriagable age. are unmarried,
and may lawfully contract to be joined
in wedlock.
In giving the name of a bride who has
been divorced the bridegroom not unfre
quently hesitates. He refers to her a?
"miss."
"Has she been married before?" cMlrps
"Cupid" Kutz. as he peers inquiringly
over his spectacles.
"Yes" mutters the bridegroom.
"Then how." demands Mr. Kutz. as a
frown shadows his face, "can she be a
miss?"
Sometime the decree is produced and
then all is plain sailing. The law- does
not compel him to demand the decree,
but w hen it is produced it is a satisfac
tion to his literary conscience,
"And now," he says to the parties,
"take the elevator the fourth floor and
you will And a justice of the peace all
ready. At this point Justice Young Is
quickly informed of what Is required of
him. and leading the way into his snug
gery he pronounce.- the customary for
mula, signs a certificate, pockets $3 and
politely bows the parties out.
In some cities rivalry exists between
the divorce courts and the county clerk's
office, but not so in this county. If the
former has every facility for dissolving
marriage why should not the latt-<r have
as rapid machinery for knotting them
again ?
It is quite a common occurrence for
one of the parties to a divorce suit —gen-
erally the woman—to be married again
' before the ink on her decree is well dried.
There are those, of course, who object
to this state of things, but on the con
trary deplore them. If divorced people
won't say that they have been divorced,
neither "Cupid" Kutz nor any one else
has powe to compel them.
It Is an everyday matter for the Bene
dict about to be to a- k that the license
be suppressed and the discretionary
power vested in the county clerk is very
■seldom exercised. When it would clear
ly be Impolitic to publish a license, then
Its suppression might serve a happy pur
pose. For instance, If two people have
been living as man and wife for years
•nd at last determine to go through the
legal ceremony. It la not part of the law
that they shall be scandalized by the
fact being published. A line from a
j clergyman informing the county clerli
!of some such fact might suffice to sup
! press a license.
There are lawyers here, as elsewhere
who make a specialty of divorce cases
■ and sonii of their experiences are cut i
• ous in the side-light they throw- on err
j lng humanity.
"If you won't mix my name up with
I the divorce business." said a well knowr
I attorney. "I will tell you an odd story,
' which shows what becomes of some di
vorced women.
"There was a woman—an exception
ally tine woman physically—who came
here from the and got four divorces
through one lawyer. The lawyer used
ito say that he charged her wholesale
! rates after the first. She was not the
j pink of propriety when she began to get
married, but she had some money. Her
first husband was a clerk and she charg
|ed him with infidelity. Her second was
a traveling man; she charged him with
failure to provide. Her third was a
railroad man; she charged him with de
sertion. Her fourth was a capitalist. In
a small w ay, and she charged him with
cruelty when he went into insolvency.
Her fifth husband she caught on the
fly while visiting San Francisco. He is
worth considerable money, and she is
with him now and seems perfectly hap
py."
As a rule the man w ho is going to be
the hero of the second marriage sits at
the back of the court room and watches,
doubtless with keen interest, the bonds
of th* first being severed. He has a
stealthy, hang-dog air. which betrays
him unmistakably.
Not a very long time ago there was a
case in the local court wherein the wo
man charged her husband with infidel
ity. She had been unfaithful herself and
was mortally afraid lest her husband
should find it out. And the man who had
led her astray sat quietly at the back of
the court room pretending not to know
her.
And so the facts run, as told by those
who have dealings with applicants for
divorce. The reason that divorced wom
en are rare is beeau«ea second marriage
speedily covers all traces of their di
vorce.
SANTA MONICA ELECTRIC LINE.
Mr. E. P. Clark, general manager of
the electric road was down yesterday
from Los Angeles taking a general view
of everything in general and the elec
tric road in particular.
He did not say just when the cut off
from Sherman to Los Angeles would he
completed, but he explained many.of the
advantages to be obtained by the
change.
The cut-off will only shorten the route
by a mile and a half, but it will avoid
the many hills that are now traversed.
At present it requires thirty-five min
utes to cover the lirst five miles out of
Eos Angeles and only forty minutes feir
the other fourteen miles, making a total
of one hour asd fifteen minutes. That is
from Fourth street. Los Angeles, to
Third street, Santa Monica.
The running time by the new route
between these points will be reduced by
twenty minutes, making the trip in fifty
five minutes.
We hear no objections on the part of
the public to the proposed change.—
Santa Monica Outlook.
SAX DIEGO'S ORANGES
San Diego will do an orange business
this year of about 50.000 boxes, or a car
load a day during the two months of the
active season, says the San Diego Sun.
This Is right smart, for San Diego never
has. and does not now pretend to be
much of an orange country. Of course
oranges can be grown here .and in places
fruit of the very highest quality can be
produced, but the lemon does better.on
the average and is found to be mote
profitable. The cause of it all is tho
climate. Considerable heat at some
stage of the grow th is necessary to de
velop the sugar in an orange and make
it sweet. San Diego does not generally
have that heat. On the contrary, a com
paratively cool. but. of course, not too
cold, climate tends to give the lemon the
greatest quantity of citric acid, and San
Diego has just that kind of a climate.
The result Is that San Diego is going
long on lemons and rather short on
oranges.

LOS ANGELES HEBALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 9, 1896.
SOME SIGNS
OF LONGEVITY
Everyone is interested in the question
|of iong life, as applied to himself, and
' all facts bearing upon it are noted with
i becoming feelings of self congratula
i tion or otherwise, says the Chattanooga
I News. It is the staying power that is
in demand, backed by an inherited and
reserved vitality of resistance against
the usual evils to which all (lesh and
I other perishable things are subject.
The law of heredity, which our life
i insurance companies understand sCwell,
is at the bottom of all calculations as
to whether a particular man or womaj
is wound up for seventy years, or will
run down at twenty or forty years.
Aside from this testimony there are
certain physical qualities which have
! great weight in determining the result
1 of the struggle against a conspiring en
l vironment. An oak has one conflgtira-
I tion. and a cedar, pine or mullein stalk
: another. It is the proper recognition of
: such distinctions that aids physicians
jin their prognosis, and turns the bal
ance against apparently desperate
chances.
At a recent meeting of the academy of
science. Mr. F. W. Warner, in speaking
upon the subject of biometry, offered
some, very Interesting data, which are
in the main true.
"Every person." said hie. "carries
about with him the physical Indica
tions of hi? longevity. A long-lived per
son may be distinguished from a short
lived person at sight. In many finances
a physician may look at the hand of a
patient and tell whether he will live or
die.
"In the vegetable, as well as In the
animal kingdom, each life takes its
characteristics from ttie life from which
it sprung. Among these inherited ohar
aeetristios we And the capacity for con
tinuing Its life for a given length of
time. This capacity for living we call j
the Inherent or potential longevity. j
"Under favorable conditions and envi- j
ronments the individual should live out j
the potential longevity. With unfavor
able conditions this longevity may be
greatly decreased, but with a favorable
environment the longevity of the per
son, the family or the race may be in
creased."
Herein are presented the two leading
considerations, always present and al- I
ways interdependent—the inherited po
tentiality and the reactionary influences
of environment,
"The primary conditions of longevity."
he continues, "are that the heart, lungs
and digestive organs, as well as the
brain, should be large. If these organs
are large, the trunk w ill be long ani
the limbs comparatively short. The
person will appear tail in sitting and
short in standing. The hand will have
a long and somewhat heavy palm and
short ttngers. The brain will be deeply
seated, as shown by the orifice of the
ear being low. The blue hazel or brown
iiazel eye. as showing an intermission of
temperament, is a favorable Indication.
The nostrils being large, open and five
indicates large lungs. A pinched an 1
half-closed nostril indicates small or
weak lungs."
These are general points of distinction
from those of short-lived tendencies, but
of course subject to the usual individti.il
exceptions. Still, it is well acknowl
edged that the characteristics noted
are expressions of inherent potentiality,
which have been proven on the basis of
abundant statistical evidence.
Again he says truly:
"In the case of persons who have
short-lived parentage on one side and
Icng-lived on the other side, the ques
tion becomes more involved. It is
shown In grafting and hybridizing that
nature makes a supreme effort to pas
the period of the shorter longevity. Any
one who understands these weak and
dangerous periods of life is forewarned
and forearmed. It has been observed
that the children of long-lived parents
mature much later and are usually back- I
ward in their studies."
JULIAN STOKY ON AMERICAN ART.
Mr. Julian Story, the well knwn artist,
has recently returned to New fork from
Paris, and contemplates remaining here
ouring the winter. Within the past few
years Mr. Story lias attained a leading
position among American painters. He
has given rather more attention to por
traits recently than he did in the earlier
stages of his career.
When Mr. Story was seen in his apart
ment yesterday he was reluctant to
speak of his work. "1 naturally take
pride lv the fact that the Frtnch,'Sov
ernment has honored me by purchasing
my salon picture," he said. "The fact
that it is not customary to purchase the
work of a foreigner makes it, of course,
the more gratifying to me.
"I think that American artists are es
tablishing themselves more firmly
abroad, and the number of
Itlng Paris increases every year, t be
lieve in the Paris atmosphere. As I
have followed that course myself, I nat
urally advise the young American paint
ers to go to Paris and study there as
much as possible. Their opportunities
were never bitter than they are today .
As an illustration of what Is being done
there for the American artist. I-will cite i
a case In point. At the exhibition of '89 |
an American jury was formed, on which
I had the honor to serve. My associates
Included Pierce. Melchers, Bridgeman.
McEwen, Weeks. Stewart, Gay. Dannet j
and B'.sling. among others. When the j
exhibition was over we met at monthly |
Tinners, and eventually organized the
Society of American Artists in Paris.
It was and is our object to see that
American works receive proper atten
tion at ihe various art exhibits, and to
supply all requisite information to the
Inte .ding exhibitors. As the represent
ative of the society I served on the jury
at the Berlin exhibition. We do what we
can to encourage the students and ad
vance their interests."
"And what of Charles Dana Gibson's
success in London?"
"It was most pronounced." said Mr.
Story, with warmth. "He simply cap
tivated London with his pictures. Of
the several that appeared In public
prints over there, T particularly admired
his drawing of a pretty girl looking at
her first picture."
It ia Mr. Story's intention to rent a
studio in town for the winter. That hr
wlll exhibit at the spring exhibition In
the Fine Arts buildlntg is not Improl tble.
He will, while here, be engaged on sev
eral portraits, hut of those he preferred
In/ '. to speak.—New York Herald.
"ORIGIN OF TIIEBICYCLB:
According to a writer in Notes and
Queries, the beginning of the wheel
dates as far back as the end of the sev
enteenth century. This particular para
graph is found in a recent number of
Science Francaise:
The first pedo-mobile machine pro
-1 pelled by the muscles was made by a
physician named Dr. Richard in or about
11,90. Mons. Ozanam. if we may believe
E. Gaulier's Recreations Mathematiques
ct Physiques, tells us that few years
previous to 1694 there had appeared in
Paris a kind of carriage or sedan chair,
which was propelled by a servant, who
sat behind and used his feet. Two small
wheels* covered by a sort of box, and at
tached to a pole, supplied the motive
power of the vehicle.
EQUAL TO THE EMERGENCY.
Being equal loan emergency helps one
out of plights Into which the best of us
sometimes fall, says a writer In the
Boston Traveler.
I heard of an actor who came so be
lated to a theater one evening when he
was to play Othello In the tragedy of
that name, that he forgot to blacken his
hands, and rushed on the stage with
the-m white and his face sooty
| Of course the audience gigled, and
I poor Othello, when he realized the cause
I of the mirth Was almost unable to pro
ceed with his part, and so deeply mor
' tilled that when he made his exit after
the first scene he declared he could not
finish the performance, but a happy
thouhgt struck him. He procured a pair
of flesh-colored gloves, blackened his
hands, put the gloves on, and walked
quietly on again.
There was quite a little tittering as
the Moor went on with his ines. but It
entirely subsided when during a speech
j of one of the other characters the dusky
I lover carelessly drew off his gloves dis
closing hands to match his face.
Then those whose risibles had beer,
affected felt small and awkward.
i
HYPNOTIZED BY MACHINERY.
Flashes From Revolving Mirrors Put
the Victim to Sleep.
And now we are to be hypnotized by
machinery! What a horrid thought!
Dr. Arthur Mac Donald. of the bureau
lof education, government specialist In
I education, as related to abnormalities.
! has a machine in his possession which
will throw persons at all susceptible to
mesmeric Influences Into the first stage
of hypnotic somnambulism. It is an in
nocent enough looking machine to those :
I uninitiated in its dread power, or to
j those who have never felt the mysteri
ous, subtle, all-pervading force of hyp
notic impressions.
Dr. Mac Donald sails this machine the
"mirror hypnotize!-." Two slender,
black ebony bars ten Inches long, three
eighths of an Inch thick, by one and one
quarter inches in width, are Inlaid on ;
the opposite broad sides with seven cir
cular mirrors to each face, about an
inch in diameter. These bars are super
imposed upon rotating, vertical axes,
propelled by a powerful spring through .
a clockwork train of whees.
In motion the mosaic mirror bars re- .
volve In opposite directions, not at a :
very high rate of speed—p< rhaps a*
many as L'O to 30 revolutions a second.
With each whirl of the blades there are |
thrown into the eye of the spectator j
four blinding flashes of light, which j
seem to race In and out. now from the i
ends of the blades oui again, In a most j
bewildering confusion.
A curious and startling optical illu- |
slon takes place- If the blades are persist
ently gazed at. At first the two spacial j
relations or the opposite clrcumfereln- ]
tial revolving of the blades are readily ;
recognized, but in a short time this
gives way to (he sensation that the ma- [
chine is moving bodily low ai d you, with j
ever-increasing velocity—like a broad. 1
bright meteor In a summer sky.
To test the machine properly, with J
a view to producing hypnotic sleep. Dr.
Mac Donald assured me that it is neces
sary to suggest to the new subject the
idea of sleep being produced by the ma- j
chine, and to constantly repeat the sug- '
gestion until sleep is produced for the
first time. The machine itself really pro
duces a profound physiological disturb
ance, and. when viewed at a point some- ,
what above the eye, the scintilating. I
blinding flashes from the mirrows be- I
pome frightfully painful, and the head ,
swims and reels, and over all comes an j
irresistible desire to close the eyes in ]
peaceful slumber. The new- subject will
involuntarily withdraw his gaze from
the painful glare, unless repeated sug
gestion that the machine is making him
go to sleep is continued.
After the first successful effort to put
a subject Into a hypnotic sleep, through
the aid of the mirror hypnotizer, each
succeeding attempt becomes much eas- |
ier, and the individual soon Is an auto- !
hypnotic subject, throwing himself with
ease into profound somnambulism or
a cataleptic condition by mere self-sug- .
gestion. as he views the machine. f
The machine just described lias a
broader application than any other /
known device in being able to produce \
simultaneously upon a large number of .
subjects the necessary InciploV' physi- [
ological effects which must precede the
hypnotic condition. By its aid such mas- J
ters of the mesmeric science as Charcot, '
Forel and I.iegois could control entire
classes In their more exhaustive and f
comparative studies, and gain deep and
valuable insight into what must ever /
seem to the layman a mysterious ancT \
occult art. —New York Herald.

AN ARMENIAN BRIDEGROOM. .
Notwithstanding the Turk, the Arme
nians still marry, and a writer in Cham
ber's Journal explains the get-up of the
groom:
A brawny barber, his arms bare to the
elbow, bustles in. His assistant carries
a chair, over which is spread a flowered
towel. Then enters a procession. The
bridegroom, his countenance of ashen
pallor (it has been floured for the occa
sion.) totters along, supported by sym
pathizing friends.
After he is shaved by the barber a va
riety of costly and wonderful garments
are put upon him. all of them gifts from
his fair Oemira. Fourteen of the bride
groom's brothers, each holding a candle
in the right hand, strip him to the skin,
and then reclothe him —new undergar
ments, three green silk waistcoats, a blue
silk robe. sash, flowered white satin
overcoat, two jackets over that, a long,
loose blue robe and a new fez. The stock
ings, however, do not (It and the bride
groom grumbles. Then he kisses my
hands and sits down beside me on the
divan.
"I suppose you are happy?" I some
what infellcltously ask, not knowing
how to begin.
He smiles as if in pain.
"You love your bride very much?"
"Very much indeed."
"What's her name?"
"Effendi. I forget."
NEW YORK'S POULTRY TRADE.
It 1« almost inconceivable, says the
N. Y. Times, that the amount of poultry
brought Into New York about holiday
time can be ditStoosed of by the people of
the city and Vicinity, The great day for
the reception of Thanksgiving turkeys
on the freight lines was Monday this
year. On that day 10.7">9 packages of
dressed poultry came into the city. The
six days before that 24.074 packages of
poultty had arrived, and on Tuesday last
Mondtay's receipts were increased by
4169 more packages of fowls. They ail
came in refrigerator cars with a temper
ature of 42 degrees, and in weather like
the present are packed in ice, a layer of
ice and a layer of poultry to the top of
the barrel, which is the "package" in
which the poultry usually comes. The
number of turkeys that come into the
city can be estimated when it is known
' that from ten to twenty-five ice-packed
I turkeys come in a barrel. Fifty barrels
jof them make a carload. At the Beach
; street station of the New York Centra!
j railroad from lifty to sixty carloads of
j poultry came in on Monday. On the
! Union Line of the Pennsylvania road.'
i which does a great deal of this work, 110
carloads were received Monday and
Tuesday. They came almost entirely
from southern central Indiana and Ohio.
SENATOR CRISP'S ESTATE.
The whole estate of the late Speaker
Crisp not exceed $20,000, including
his home, says the Terr* Haute Gazette.
Of this amount $16,000 was in life insur
ance. Without that his estate would
have been nothing more than his house

died as he had entered the politic*—a
poor man. He was. universally respected
