Says Craze for Unusual and
Restlessness Prompt Rich
Couples to Seek Parting.
one of New Jersey’s well-known
authors, descended from the
realm of fiction into real life long
enough yesterday to give her views on
marriage and divorce. And very inter
esting and startling view's she gave me
In the sunny drawing room of her
charming home, 468 Summer avenue,
this city.
Miss Douglass is writing a book on
divorce, and many will bo tho poignant
truths brought homo to society women.
She Is deyoting much time and thought
to the. social conditions of the people
of her country, and is severely criticis
ing Its loose divorce laws.
"It seems to me that tho men and
women of high society try on loves as
they try on gloves,” she said indignant
ly in regard to the divorces now pend
ing. "Tho only euro for this I can sug
gest is that a law bo passed which
forbids remarriage for three years after
the grnntlng of the divorce,”
“But,” I protested, “that would tend
to Immorality moro or less.”
"That is true, but then we have much
of that now. On the other hand, how
ever, many men and women would not
try to seek divorce if they knew they
could not remarry immediately. How
outrageously simple are some of our
so-called society people! They no
sooner get a divorce because they were,
unhappy, than they blindly jump into
another marriage. It is a sin and out
rage and sets a bad example to the
middle class.

“I understand that before her first
marriage she was a very plain, unat
tractive young woman, but Castellane
took her to Paris, where she was taught
by excellent teachers to make herself
attractive, and from what I hear she
has succeeded most wonderfully. She
ought to be thankful to him for what
he has taught her.
"What a beautiful example she sets
her boys! I should imagine she would
be ashamed of herself. As for this

match, and now they startle the world
by seeking a divorce.
“Don't you think that II In the awful
restIcNMncNN of aoelety which cause*
these scandals?
"The constant desire for something
new and the knowledge that It is the
Unusual which pleases and attracts and
which only money can buy has caused
much unhappiness.
"Divorces should never be granted ’
unless it is for incompatibility of
temper, fiut, then, this should he a cer
tainty. Things should bo called by
their right names.
Imprisonment for l.lfe,
"Why should any married man and
woman take the liberty of falling in
love with other persons? Should a
man allow himself to love any other
woman but his wife? Certainly not.
Anil for men tlint do there should lie
only one punishment, and that is im
prisonment for life.
“When our ministers, the men who
preneh the gospel, allow themselves to
love women other than their wives
then I caiiunt lilnmc some people for
being heathens. Surely there la a just
God who rules over us all and He cer
tainly does not admonish his ministers
to have more than one wife.
"I am outraged at the scandalous be
havior of this Cordova and only hope
that he will De forced to serve his full
time In prison and not be pardoned
before. The shamelessness of this
Bowne girl is worse than awful, and I
am exceedingly sorry that we must let
our younger generation hear of such
dreadful affairs.
“As for Cooke and that Whaley girl I
think they are already severely pun
ished. It is a dreadful example to set,
but I suppose we cannot, avoid such in
cidents. After all I think it is up to the
women. They allow themselves to
question too often whether this or that
is wrong or right. We should have a
higher scale of morality and should
know that, when a thing is wrong it is
wrong, and >vhen it is right it is right.
“A married woman should love her
husband and not covet another man,
and so with the men. Let men and
women realize the seriousness of mar
riage beforo they promise to ‘love,
honor and obey.’ I really believe that
many couples marry knowing that if
they find they don’t like each other they
can soon get a divorce. In fact, I
know such to be the case in many in
Higher Morality Needed.
“Let our mothers teach the girls a
higher scale of morality. Let them
teach the sacredness of love and mar
riage and we will probably in time come
to have happier marriages.”
And in the meantime Miss Douglass
will finish her book on “Divorce," and
will undoubtedly furnish some sound
doctrines. She has the book partly
written, but has been forced to cease
her work temporarily because of the
demand by her publishers that she first
finish two children’s stories, sequels fo
others with which she has delighted
many young hearts.

Four Men Force Deadly Lance*!
Head to Give Up Priceless
Cure for Insanity.
In Bronx Zoo Dr. Dittmars Per* |
forms Second Operation
in History of Science.
NEW YORK. April 27.—To obtain!
he priceless serum that will cure mad- j
less, and for the specific purpose of J
•estoring the rear n of one millionaire I
nadman, four men iskea their lives
resterday in a struggle with a huge !
ance-head snak .
Seventeen and three-fourths grains !
if this rare liquid, sufficient to last tho j
vorld for a half century and to treat
ill the insane persons in the world,
vere obtained, and, after the treatment
if the millionaire patient the re
naindcr will ho used on other unfortu
lates. For months adventurous men
who Jo not fear death have been
couring tho headwaters of the
Unazon, in Brazil, for a specimen of
he snake, never before in captivity,
nd at last succeeded in getting a huge
pecimen, after several men had lost
heir lives.
The operation, the first of its kind iri
■ighty years and the second in tho his
ory of science, was performed in the
'eptile house at the Zoological Park,
the Bronx, by Dr. Raymond L. Ditt
mars, curator of the park, before a
number of prominent medical men. The
reptile was brought out in a glass case
by two keepers, and then Dr. Dtttmars,
taking his life in his hands, grasped it
quickly behind the head. A jar, the j
mouth covered with a piece of thin j
gauze, was held before the head of the
angry viper, Into which, with lightning
like rapidity, it struck its fangs, from
which the drops of precious serum
dropped Into the jar. This was re
peated three times until the poison '
glands were exhausted. Then a solu
tion of sugar and milk in a ratio of .
999 grains to one of serum was poured! J
in the jar. and the mixture treated
until it was a tine white powder. So i ,
powerful is the serum that It is given '
in only (lie most minute quantities, the ,
largest dose containing about one ten- l
trllllonth of a grain, and from tha:. {
down to quantities so small that figures, i
fail to give an idea. J
The snake was captured some time .
ago in Brazil by a party of American!1
scientists, and was hurried to this j
country. The lanco head is far more!
deadly than tlun rattler, and gives noj„
warning when it strikes.
This is the viper that the Aztecs fos
tered for its poisons, tipping their , I
spear heads and arrows in them for-1
use against their enemies. So potent j',
is the poison that old spear heads dug •
up after centuries will yause death if;’
a scratch is inflicted with them. The • c
specimen in the Zoo lias not eaten in a; ’
month, and, it Is thought, will starve! i
itself to death within a month.
HACKETTKTOVVN, April 27.—Mrs. '
Josephine Wilson, who had worked for r
local families as a servant, has left an 1
