Anthony's remark that women will quit getting married as they become more Intelligent, looks like an Indirect drive at that comparatively Insignificant but withal useful creature, man. The plain Inference is that as woman's Intellectual powers are devel oped she will be able to judge the biped In trousers more accurately, very much to lits disadvantage, and will naturally want to have less to do with him. Doubtless Miss Anthony Is willing to be pointed out as living evidence of the truth of her statement; and there could not be a more shining example. Still, Miss Anthony Is only one woman of a vast multitude—and the world does not know at this blessed moment whether she has remained unmarried because of superior wisdom or because tbe right man did not nsk her. But let that pass. Conceding that the venerable suffragist Is good evidence In support of her own theory, there are reasons for believing that she is the rare exception and not the general rule. Any of us can easily recull scores of bright women acquaint ances who did not hesltute to wed when suitable opportunities presented and have never seemed to regret It. In some Instances the experiment was so satis factory that they repeated the perform ance one or more times. And we can remember also some who were quite dull aud yet remained spinsters. Even among Misa Anthony's associates and co-laborers In the great and auall-paced cause of woman's ''emancipation*' there are not a few who write "Mrs." before their distinguished names. Reelly, we cannot see that the Intelligent women show a bit more dislike for matrimony than tbe simple-minded ones. With all proper regard for Mins Susan and her Ideas, It will be a sad day for woman kind when her theory becomes gener ally accepted. Female colleges and seinlnaiiee will go into a pallid decline, and even our high schools will ceui piaia of a growing scarcity of girl pu pils.
