The Advantages and Disadvantages of
Marrying a Great Man —It Is a Great
Thing for a Woman to Sit at the
Feet of a Poet
A club woman somewhere said re
cently that geniuses should not marry
and the: remark has been the text for
much discussion in the East. '- Mr.
Ernest Seton-Thompson or Thompson
s'ion— is quite impossible -to say
■which he is—very modestly discussed
the matter from the standpoint of the
genius, as did several other persons
who seem to have no doubt as to their,
own classification. The matter appears
to have been discussed mainly from
the point of view of the genius, so that
a few remarks from one who can dis
cuss it impersonally may not be amiss.
In ih first place, what is a genius? In
the next, was there/ever a real. genius
who was conscious of it? Perhaps it
needs a genius to" aris\vei:"En"ese *q'ues-~
A -• nius is a poison set apart by na
ture or by Cod to make the highest
us.'< pt his talents, and to do great
things! That is not to say that he al-i
ways rtoes them. Frequently, alas, he
allows his talents to go to waste, or
puts them to a poor use. but the great
geniuses of the world have usually re
ceive*.] recognition. Of course, when'a
general proposition is laid down like
the above that geniuses should not
marry, it is necessary first to catch
your genius and they do not go about
with a ticket, "I am a genius, beware!"
Sometimes a woman marries a sup
poeedly ordinary man and discovers
to.i late that he is a genius! What is
she to do about it? On the other hand,
sin- sometimes marries a man she re
gards as a genius and finds out later
ihat he is nothing but the most com
monplace sort of man and comparative
ly easy to get along with.
This must be a great shock. It takes
;i brave woman to domesticate a ge
nius-, a poet, for instance, but think:
what ;i joy it must be to a mere woman
to sit at his feet and listen to him for
the rest of her life. Few women are
so blessed. Then a poet—a really true
i I -would be able to rise above
grounds in the coffee and if the steak
'> ■> burned black he would not notice
h Ten t<> one he would be inditing a
sonnet to your eyebrows. Then would be
the test of his genius. If you should
see his eye in "fine frenzy rolling,"
don't think that he has indigestion, but
it is the genius that is working within
him. Why. it must, be rather entertain
ing to marry a genius; although they
should be handled with gloves. When
y,.u see that; he is about to. have an
attack ..f bis particular genius for
writing, composing, painting- or what
ever form his great talent takes, shut
him v). in hj s room and leave plenty of
strong food outside of his door three
times ;i day. but don't go near him.
Managed in this way. a genius should
be endurable. Don't say very much
about his talents to him; he "will tell
you all about them himself: in fact, you
might not know he was a genius at'all
unless he told you. A genius is always
putting into practice the old adage,
"know thyself.'.'
Th.- woman who is married to a ge
nius and doesn't know it is probably
the happiest. She is without that ter
rible sense of responsibility that harn
p'-is the one who has knowingly united
herself with a great man. The ques
tion is. ran a woman marry a genius
and not know if. 1 I s there the slight
est chance of his keeping it to himself 1'
When I started out I had no idea that
tins subject would so develop and lead
in so many questions and problems,
i'.ut if the doubts and difficulties inci
dent ii].on a woman's lif e are not to
be discussed on a woman's page, wheie
in the world can they be discussed?
Another problem is if a woman marries
a genius with her eyes open and know
ing Hit- risk, will things be better or
worse if after a few years, he no long
er seems a genius to her? Well, well,
here am I propounding a lot of ques
tions that I cannot answer on a warm
day and all the geniuses who might
answer are on the second floor I
leave them for wiser heads.

Mr. Howells on How to Decline a Pro
There was once a young lady of ten
der feelings but firm resolves who was
inflexibly determined to live unmar
ried, even at the risk of living an old
maid, but who wished so much to spare
the susceptibilities of her potential ad
mirers that she long made it her study
how to refuse them without wounding
them. To this end she read all the
novels she could lay her hands on. and
as much poetry as she could bear. She
went constantly to the theater, and in
the intervals'of her social duties she
took serious books, like biographies and
memoirs, out of the libraries, and in
formed herself of the methods and
manners of the heroines who declined
offers from high motives. She was,
upon the whole, a good deal disap
pointed, especially with the novels.
These manuals of the. impassioned
emotions seemed to render in almost
every case a biind allegiance to the
law of ending well, which in the low
conception of the author was getting
the hero and heroine married, and then
dropping them. In the very, very few
cases where they suffered a girl to re
fuse a lover, it was that she might
leave him to some other girl who se
cretly loved him. and who would prob
ably pine away, or partly away, if she
did not have him. This the young lady
thought simply disgusting and idiotic;
she was a young lady of strong ex
pressions 'as well as tender feelings
and fixed resolves; and she found the
poets not much, if any, more instructive
than the novelists. They gave ex
amples enough of girls who did not
marry, but it was because their lovers
died, or did not ask them; when their
lovers both survived and proposed the
girls refused them from pride or from
shame, or from want of presence of
mind: and bitterly regretted it ever
afterwards. The personal histories
were largely those of women distin
guished in the arts, letters and sci
ences, whose courtships and marriages
were dismissed in a few cold and in
different phrases, as incidents of small
consequence in their several careers.
Where they did not marry they seemed
not to have been courted; and where
they were loved it was in a vague, ten
tative sort that never arrived at pas
In spite of all. however, the young
lady did evolve, though from the ob
servation of life rather than her ac
quaintance with literature, a formula
of sympathetic rejection which entirely
suited her. We will not reveal it be
cause it was so charming that if put in
the possession of young girls generally,
it would tempt them to its use in the
case of every offer of marriage. But
we may confide that the :young lady,
having lived to witness the comparative
•failure of marriage amotig her friends,
and always liking her friends' hus
bands better than her friends*"them-
front are bands of the blue dimity apr
phqued with lace medallions and ■ edging
there, and the neck is a wide ruffle of net
top lace. . •
The sleeves are large puffs ending in
bands and lace frills.
Among the numerous small belongings
of dress that may make or mar a bosv
tume are dainty lisle thread stockings
inset with small medallions or insertion
of black chantilly lace.
Other stockings of. either silk or liwk*
have single or' triple clocks in black, or
.black touched with ajjit of color.
Among stockings ranging in price, from,
SJO to $40 per pair are" many' exciuiWte'
hand-embroidered specimens. The silk of
these stockings is indescribably fine. tiiilP
the embroidery and lace incrustations arc.
so beautifully executed that they seem'
part of the stocking.
The greatest novelties in slippers arft
those of satin, matching the color of the
gown, covered with real lace, or em
broidered in tiny colored beads and'.silkd/'-
selves, though she blamed them for her
friends' unhappiness, made such a
study of their varying temperaments
that she knew just where men's sensi
bilities would suffer most, and so con
trived a form of refusal that would
justly flatter their vanity and console
their affections, and at. last leave them
grateful for having been rejected.
The only difficulty she experienced
was in the application of her formula.
It happened that the very first man
who offered himself was one whom
she had long secretly loved, and she
instantly accepted him, without, as it
were, thinking. She never regretted
what she had done, and did not even
appear chagrined at the waste of the
time she had spent in acquiring the
useless information stored up for a
contrary eventuality. X Tnless she should
become a widow, hers must ever re
main the most signal instance of mis
spent research that we could offer.—
