Why Mr. Barry, like the late Mr. Phillips, takes it so seriously is rather
inexplicable. But he has the zeal of a settlement worker, and writes like an
earnest altruist, who would lead his fellow men into society, or at least point
the way to the sad race of climbers groping, like Maeterlinck's blind, toward
the light. It is all very serious.
But the most interesting part of the essay tells of a San Francisco man
climbing in New York. Mr. Barry withholds the name. It might be the
effervescent Mr. M.. except that he isn't married. Mr. Barry refers to a wife.
Half a dozen others just don't fit the description. Has Mr. Barry made a
fc. nposite? It suggests a guessing contest. Prize for the first correct iden
tification of the successful San Francisco climber in New York. This is the
way Mr. Barry celebrates him and his progress:
"However, all do not fail. A San Franciscan came to New York a
few years ago. He had plenty of money, a pretty wife. Neither was without
savoir fairc, yet neither had any mode of entree other than by the dollar route.
"One day the San Franciscan had the good fortune to meet a young
member of New York 'society,' who for a consideration offered to show
him the way. He was promptly engaged as a 'secretary.' It was his business
to discoVer what members of the most exclusive circles were being over
hard pressed by creditors. First he discovered if the so/rial position of the
•near bankrupt was unquestioned; second, he determined that they were not
involved in any desperate scandal, nor any deep indebtedness which would
be likely to snuff them out within a short time.
"Satisfied on those two points, he proceeded, almost clandestinely, to
settle the bills. He was content to wait indefinitely for his returns. He
pretended, indeed, that He was merely a peculiar kind of philanthropist, that
his chief pleasure in life was the lessening of the burdens of the idle rich,
rihe wife of that man today enjoys one of the most envied social positions
in New York.*'
One can only wonder who they are and remember the discreet way they
paid the price, if one desires favor in Fifth avenue. It must take millions,

The Smart Set
Richard Barry writes of buying a
way into society. "It must be done
discreetly." Surely it must. Indis
cretion is merely bad taste, and bad
taste, a French satirist says", is the only
unpardonable sin. There are discreet
ways of paying the price. Crude
efforts fail. It is so necessary to create
an illusion that no price is paid.
Money, writes M?. Barry, blocks the
entrance more often than it opens
the doors. For some reason, Richard
Barry has studied the Question with

Special Dispatch to The C»ll
CHICAGO, Dec. 2.—The Illinois
"Woman's Suffrage association today
decided to ignore Dr. Mary Walker,
after they had made arrangement to
entertain the 80 year olfl suffragette.
Whether Doctor W r alker's attack on
Jane Addams prompted the suffragettes
to snub her or not is not known.
"Why bother about the poor old
woman?" asked Mrs. Katherine Waugh
McCullough, prominent suffrage leader,
woman justice of the peace and law

Walker, maybe T will be as cranky as
she is. Age explains many things. If
she wants to assail any one let her do
It. She did a great work for her
country during the war, but—oh well,
I shan't discuss her."
It Is known that arrangements had
been made for Doctor Walker's re
ception at suffrage headquarters.
Doctor Walker, resplendent in gray
striped trousers, a black frocked coat,
stiff white shirt, high standing collar,
a wine colored necktie adorned with a
diamond studded horseshoe, in discuss
ing Jane Addams, said:

prayer. Mrs. Harriett E. Riley, fore
woman of the jury, which sat In a land
damage suit here Friday, described to
day the feelings of the 12 women, and
their efforts to reach a verdict.
"We scarcely knew what to do after
entering the jury room," Mrs. Riley
said. "Then some woman said, 1 be
lieve we should pray.' All the heads
bowed. One juror led In spoken sup
plication and we plunged into discus

"It seemed as If all were talking at
once but we were terribly In earnest.
All had respected the judge's Instruc
tions and for three days had not
breathed a word about the case. Nat
urally there was much to be said."
The case went to the jury at 8 o'clock
at night and three hours later the ver
dict awarding damages was returned.
The husbands of the jurors had waited
around to escort them home. Two

Are the Fly and Mosquito Dangerous?-!*
The fly, with spongy fact, collect* tbe invisible germs of diseases, spreads

A young woman who has been mar
ried a little over a year was telling me
of a recent storm which had ruffled her
matrimonial seas.
It seems that "himself" —we'll call
him John, because that was not his
name—had planned to go off for the
week end on a hunting trip with two
of his bachelor friends.
His wife was horrified. "Just think
of that," said she, "he was going to
leave me for two whole days. You can
Imagine how heartbroken I felt."
"He didn't go, then?" I asked.
"I should say not," said the lady. "I
told him It showed he didn't love me
any more, and finally I broke down
and just cried and cried and he was
frantic. He said, of course, he wouldn't
go, that he'd stay at home and do any
thing I wanted. And so we are going

afterward—his hunting trip would have
cost every bit as much. Isn't that

"Of course," she said, round eyed.
"Why shouldn't I be?"

Why didn't you pay us that visit you've

Representatives of Women's Or
ganizations Confer
Further discussion of proposed legis
lative measures filled the afternoon j
yesterday for the representatives of a j
number of the leading women's organ
izations of the state, who gathered at i
the call of Mrs. George E. Swan, state j
chairman of the legislative committee j
of the California Federation of
Women's Clubs.
Mrs. Swan's plan for organization of
the women's forces to secure the pas
sage of a number of bills relating to
women and children has been receiv
ing enthusiastic co-operation and con
ferences have been held here, in Sac
ramento and Los Angeles, yesterday's
being the second in San Francisco.
The bill reported as ready for presen
tation yesterday was that of the joint
guardianship of children, for which the
civic section of the California club is
working directly. Dr. Caroline C. Cof
fin presented the measure as a pro
posed amendment to section 197 of the
civil code, the change being the inser
tion of the words "and mother" after
the word "father," making the respon
sibility of guardianship and care thus
This was indorsed by the confer
ence, as was also the proposed bill to
raise the age of consent from 16 to. 18
years, and the state training school for
girls. The latter is the pet measure j
of the Juvenile Protective association, i
and In its discussion by Mrs. Weymann J
of that organization the women present
were urged *Jb use every means to se- I
cure the aid of the state legislators. It j
was thought probable that a bond is
sue for the establishment and main
tenance of the school might be neces
The minimum wage act for. women
was opposed by Mrs. Mary Calkins
Brooke of the socialist party, who said
that all labor unions were opposed to
It. The reason for this opposition was
said to be the fear that if a minimum
wage were established It might be
come the maximum wage and the feel
ing that the bill eventually would de
stroy organization among women
workers. ,
The State Produce exchange act,
which provides for a statewide organ
ization, was opposed emphatically by
Mrs. Sarah Ames, who said that she
represented the unorganized farm
women of California. She declared that
this bill would make the sale of coun
try produce more difficult, bring more
profit for the middleman and would In
crease the cost of living. This will be
investigated further.
An indorsement of the teachers' pen- j
slon bill was passed.
Discussion of the health certificate
for marriage was most informal in na- j
ture and brief, as Mrs. C. F. Edson of
Los Angeles, who is particularly inter
ested in the bill, did not arrive before
the close of the meeting as was ex
Several other bills were brought up,
but nothing definite was done. It was
voted to adjourn to the call of the
chairman, who will probably be hero
for a few days just prior to the opening
of the state legislature. '
Among the representatives of organ
izations and interests present yester
day were:

found plenty to do. It just didn't seem
to me that John loved me the way he
used to if he wanted to go way off like
that on his day off." /
I didn't probe any further.
Poor, foolish little woman. She was
satisfied and yet she hadn't in the leapt
altered the main fact, which was, of
course, that her husband wanted to go.
With the eternally feminine weapon
she had forced him to give up the trip,
but he probably wanted it just as much
as ever—if not more.
And yet it was whether he wanted to
leave her. not whether he did, that was
the real criterion of his desire for her
society. .
I think women often make the great
mistake of missing this distinction.
When a jealous woman by tears or
threats makes her Husband promise to
give up some other woman's society
she feels she has accomplished some
thing. In reality she has accomplished
nothing—or less. For she hasn't made,
him cease, wanting the oMier woman's
presence, which was, of course, the real
issue. The way to make a man prefer
one's society to that of other women
most emphatically is not to force it on
him by tears and scenes.
The lady of the hunting trip would
have laid a better foundation for fu
ture comradeship If she had let her
man go and find out how glad he was
to get back to her. The jealous woman
can do nothing by force and exactions;
it must be done by tact and by using #
every charm she has to the utmost.
And love is blinder than the prover
bial bat when it fails to recognize
these things.
