When a Woman Proposes
IV a recent article I expressed the
opinion that it would make enor
mously for the happiness and well
being of the world for woman to have
a right to select her mate and to have
the same privilege of popping the
question that men enloy.
I have received many letters on the
subject, two of which bring up novel
and interesting points.
One man who heartily agrees with
m point of view thinks that changed
economic conditions make it highly
desirable for women to take the In
itiative in love making In many cases.
He points out that a poor young
man making a small salary lacks the
nerve to ask a woman to share the
hardships of his lor, although she
toight be perfectly willing to do so,
or she might be able by adding her
own income to his to supply the finan
cial backing that is necessary to make
anv marriage a success.
Romeo, for instance, couldn't say:
"Juliet. I love you. but I only get JS6
& week, and we can't get married on
that, but vou also get $25 a week.
and on that 350 we could get married
and be happy as the day is long" On
the other hand. Juliet could make such
a proposition to Romeo, and it would
be a proof of devotion strong enough
to draw money on at the bank.
Likewise, if convention gave woman
th; right to pick out the man she
v. anted to spend the next 30 or 40
- cars with and ask him to be her hus
band, it would do more than anything
else to ameliorate the hard matrimo
nial lot of the poor little rich girl. The
reason that divorces are so common
among millionaires is because a ".ery
rich girl seldom gets a chance at mar
rvlncr a real man.
The worth while men are so afraid
of being thought fortune hunters that
he keep away and the unfortunate
heiress becomes the prey of some
bankrupt aristocrat, or brainless fop
in her own set.
The Rich Girl's Chance.
Rich girls would marry Intelligent,
wide awake, hustling poor men just
as often as rich men marry pretty,
bright, poor girls if they had the
priv ilege of looking about them and
picking and choosing as their broth
ers have.
As a matter of fact, one of the
happiest marriages I ever knew was
one in which a very rich girl did
usurp the prerogative of a queen and
ifk a poor man to marrv her He
ws glad enough to do it, but his pride

Other of the residences are like Ital

great house has some legend connect
ed with it. There is a magnificent
one on the Alameda whose plans were
drawn in Paris and sent out to the
builders. In some war they got the
olans mixed and put the back of the
hoase to the street, and so it remains.
More More Modern ovt.
I find a great difference In the stores
of Santiago over those xhat I saw here
aboTt ulears ago. At. that time th-r.
was no attempt at display. The prices
were not marked on the gooda, and
nearly all dealing was a matter of bar
gain and sale. Now every large store
has its plate glass windows and the
price marks are changed from day to
This revolution was caused about
four years ago by the inauguration cf
a department store. This was a branch
of a big Buenos Ayres establishment. It
old goods at fixed prices and had ex
pert window dreseers who changed the
display every nght The peoiple took to
It and they forsook the old "tores in
such numbers that many of them falla.
Todar a new class of bssineas estao
llehment Is going up. The buildings are
of several stories, with a more regular
sky line than that of our American
cities. They are more like the shops el
Germany and France than those of
North America, and. indeed, in many
respects the town is a miniature Pans.
The street scenes of Santiago are a.
combination of the oW and the now.
You still see the donkeys and mules
carrying their panniers of vegetables
and fruits about from door to door Jfou
still see horses close to the sidewalks
hobbled by rope around their front legs,
apd the oxcart still creaks its way
through the town At the same time
there are cabs and automobiles every
where The street cars have great nu.ii
bers on them indicating their routes
and there are motor ears that carry
the heavier merchandise and all kinds
of building materials.
m.l rocfnntn An. TaitAlnCa
The peoplo have changed and the
characteristic costumes of the past are
tramped upon bv the heels of the tfrs
eut There are Parii bonnets and slit
skirts everywhere, and also women,
and girls clad in black with mantas or
black shawls covering their beads,
necks and shoulders, so that only the
faces show out of the Mack. This cos
tume used to be eommen with the rich
and poor. It is now dying, out among
those who can afford the more costly
modern clothing, and the rich and fash
ionable now confine its use almost al
together for going to church.
The raanta Is often used for shopping
during the morning, the better clothes
being reserved for the promenade be
tween S and 7 in the afternoon, the
hours ben ever one goes along the
chief business streets to see and be
seen. The roanta has the advantage
that It can be thrown on quickly, end
also that it hides any slovenly dress

rvot n Cheap City.
Santiago is not a cheap cltj in which
to live It is a town of the verj rich
and the verv poor Manv of the citi
zens own large estates out in the coun
try and live at the capital, -where they
have magnificent houses and entertain
In grand style The city has a munici
pal theater subsidized by the govtrn
ment This gives --a season of Italian
opera which lasts" of 80 nights. The
companies are brought from Italy and
nearly everv person of prominence has
his own box that cost 3400 w see m
gold. On such fashionable occasions
full dress is always worn and the wom
en are resplendent wi.h diamonds. The
men keep their heads bare during the
acting and as soon as the curtain falls
every man puts on his hat. lie may
stand np Jn his seat and sweep the
house with his ooera class. There is a
' great deal of visiting among the friends
in ine poxes aunng me miermissiins
and the opera is more of a social occa
sion than a musical one.
Have Fine Races.
Another social feature is the races,
which are usually held upon Sundays.
Santiago has one of the finest race
tracks ef the world. It Is outside the
citv on a plain surrounded by moun
tains which rise up against the horizon
like walls of snow. Above these white
walls Is streached a sky of the bluest
blue, and in winter, when the best races
take place, the weather is as mild as
June in Virginia.
The race track Is owned by the Club
Hipico de Santiago. This club has done
much to improve the breeding of horses
in Chile and has made the Chilean ho-se
one of the best in the world. The
Chilean horse Is a cross between the
Flammand and the Arabian horse
brought here by the Spanish conquer-
give a man the rlcht to Insult her.
He sajs that when a man offers mar
riage to a woman it is an honor to
her, because he undertakes to support
her, but that if a woman proposed mar
riage to a man she would merely be
offering him herself.
This objection seems to me rather
far fetched. To begin with, no man '
supports his wife. The 'woman who
runs the domestic machinery of a.
home, whether It be managing a big
establishment or doing the sewing
cooking and scrubbing for a family
with her own hands, is self-supporting
and earns her own board and keep
If any woman in the world does. Just
in actual material service that has a
market value the wife Is quits with
her husband She gives him value re
ceived for her food and clothes.
Moreover there is not one man In a
million who looks upon matrimony
from the sordidly materialistic stand
point. When he thinks of marriage
he thinks of it in its spiritual essence,
and when he dreams of a wife his
vision is of her bringing to him a
limitless devotion, a loyalty that never
fails. He sees her standing by him
through thick and thin, watching with
a love that finds Its finest happiness
in service.
Too Precious for Msney.
"What a woman brings to marriage Is
something so precious tiut no money
can pay for it, and that Is what even
normal minded man sees in it. and
there would be small danger of any one
ever committing the sacrilege of re
jecting the offer of this sacred thing
with ribald Insult. If it did happen,
the woman could only thank her
guardian angel on her knees for hav
ing saved her from such a brute
After all. the whole proposition goes
back to the one contention that mar
riage Is the most Important thing in
life to both men and women, and that
they should have an equal right to se
lect their mates, and that as conven
tions now obtain women suffer a great
handicap In being denlijd this privilege.
Also that It would be both more dig
nified and modest for a woman to be
able to come squarely out and pop the
question to a man she wanted to marry
than it Is for her to have to try by
various and sundry devices of manner
and dress to attract his notice and in
veigle him into asking her to marry
Men shouldn't object to the Innova

ors. which through the temperate cli
mate and the cold snow has grown into
what is an entirely new tpe. It has
great stating qualities, with an ext-a-ordinary
courage and spirit. Like the
Arabian horse, it eats but little, and it
has all the endurance of the Arab and
the strength of the Flammand.
Racrn Help thnrlt.
A part of the race track receipts and
also the lotter receipts of Chile are
given to charity The charities are un
der an organization known as '.be
Junto de Beneficencia. which is one of
the richest institutions of Chile. It
gets its income not only from private
charity, but also from iu own proper
ties and from funds donated by the
state. It has 97 boards of manageme.it,
and altogether 122 charitable institu
tions. Here In Santiago it has a nome
for children- that accommodates 1000
Inmates and also a children s eating
house that supplies meals at regular
hours to poor mothers and children to
the number of 1000 dolly. It has orphan
asylums, associations for giving cheap
homes to working people, tuberculosis
hospitals and foundling aalums.
Cemetery a Beautiful Spot.
Under the care of the Junta de Bene
ficencia is the cemetery o( Santiago,
which is one of the most beautiful of
the world. It was founded by Gen.
O'HIggins. when he was presiaent of
the republic along about the time that
John Quincy Adams was in the vhite
house. Before that the Catholic i had
their own cemetery and there was no
place for the poor nor for the heretics.
Gen. O'liiggins believed that dsath
"makes all men of one sise' and he es
tablished this great burial ground.
The cemetert is an enormous enclos
ure, filled with old o press trees that
extend for 75 to 10 feet above the
paved sidewalks and courts. It Is a
real citv of the dead, with many vaults
and monuments, the coffins being
stored away above the ground in
houses of marble, granite or sandstone
One of the finest monuments Is the
bronie figure of s woman who stands
on a pedestal with her arms out
stretched toward heaven. This is to com
memorate the 2000 women who we-e
burned to death when the church of the
Jesuits took fire and was completely
destroyed. That was in December.
186:. Santiago had then no fire bri
gade and the inmates crowded to the
ooors which opened inward and forced
them shut so that they could not get
out. One of the men who did the most
to save the women was the American
minister, a man named Wilson. He re
ceived a testimonial from the city for
his courage and Is still remembered
Rronzc IM-nlre of Christ.
Another striking monument of this
cemetery is a bronse figure of Christ.
It stand right In the cente of the city
of the dead, with the avenifes radiating
from the four sides of the rock pedestal
upon which the Christ stands. The roek
represents Calvarv The figure is more
than life she, and It is wonderfully
effective and impressive It is the
finest monument I have ever seen in
any cemeter.
Santiago is a citv of mam churches
and scnoois. Full religious tolerance is
granted and the Protestants hav e their
missions and churches and schools In
different parts of the republic Roman
Catholicism is the state religion and
the church receives a large subsidy
from the government.
The most of the people are Catholics,
and that church is extraordinarv ly rich.
It owns In Santiago alone property to
the amount of 31o0.000.000 in gold It
has flora' of the best business blocks,
2nd tl whole of one side of the plaxa.
which is th center of the business sec
tion, belongs to it. It has thousanls
of rented houses and acres of stores.
It owns haciendas outside the city npon
which wines and other products a. e
manufactured and offered for sale.
Nearly all of the church property Is
controled b the arcmshop, although
some of it is held by the different
churcn organizations, male and female.
The Carmelite nuns of this dty are
said to b.- the richest body of women
In the world.
Han liscellent e-rr.paner-i.
The Chile of today has excellent
newspapers It has altogether about
70 dailies and more than 100 weeklies
and semi-weeklies. There are a hun
dred different periodicals issued here
In Santiago, the chief of which is the
Mercuric. This has editions for both
the capital and for Valparaiso, and it
is published both morning and evening
Like the New York Herald, its evening
edition is printed in pink. It has also
a big Sunday issue including features
simlliar to those of our metropolitlan
The paper has fine offices In San
tiago, with a counting room that looks
more like the rotunda of a cathedral
than the ordinary place for transacting
such business. It belongs to Don Au
gusta Edwards, one of the rishest men
of Chile, and at present minister from
this country to Great Britain.
Lady Randolph Churchill, who in an
address at a Red Orons meeting in Lon
don described the Germans as violators
of the flag of truce and "despicable Huns."
"They have committed treacherous acta
under cover of the white flag," she said,
"and have- killed persons wearing the
Red Cross. They are despicable Hun "
