Ungallantly enough, the French Court of Appeals lias decided
that a woman lawyer cannot be admitted to practice at the bar,
notwithstanding the fact that the applicant was learned in the law,
highly accomplished otherwise and had passed an excellent exami

antecedents, personality and chosen avocation combines as many of

The waning prestige of marriage in this country is an evil which | ,"

remedy this evil, and it'is accordingly a pleasure to point out that
the Courts of South Dakota have set up a partial remedy at law.
In South Dakota, as elsewhere, one reason why matrimony is less :
popular than it should be arises from the opposition of the enraged
father. When thisjoppositiou takes the shape of physical violence
it is customary fo r the aspiring suitor to withdraw and seek solace
in arnica and celibacy. But in South Dakota a young man whose
matrimonial aspirations had ..been thus thwarted lias succeeded in
recovering ;?2,ooo'as damages for injuries received at the hands (and
feet) of his sweetheart's objecting parent. This legal precedent
thus laid down should be full of encouragement to the would-be
Benedict. South Dakota,hvhicli has done much to make niatri
mony popular by making it easier to escape in case of Double, has
rendered a further service by applying the curb of legal damages to
