A Vermont Rirl who expects soon to be married objects to promising to obey her future husband and has found a clergyman who is willing to leave the word "obey" out of the mar riage service. She is not the first She will not be the last. That word "obey" has been a terrible bother. But, after all, it makes little difference whether the woman verbally promises to obey or not. The mere words of the marriage ceremony count for little. The iji , f I I real feeling and promises of marriage lie deeper than L I J I 1 l-m. olca tViev As Tint oriet at oil hersif and upon him.

"Why, mamma:' "I have come to a sudden resolution. Our most eligible men in England are beiug largely absorbed by American heiresses. Now, It has occurred to me. why not our most eligible young ladies absorb American heirs? Tou know that everything here Is entailed and your brother will get it all with the title.

I hey sny thnt New York doesn't look like Lon- t don at all: that London is old fash ioned beside the tall buildings and wonderful engineering feats of New York." Lady Gladys was a thorn in her moth er's side. The girl had been graduat- cd with honor at the Englishwoman's . . .i college. Girton. atnl was interested in ! the world's ongoing rather than the l more narrow view of keeping her place among the British aristocracy. When the liner in which she came steam ed into New York harbor everything about her looked large in comparison witn wnat sne ban leen accustomed to. '. The bay was broad, and the statue of ' Liberty loomed up impressively. To her right stretched the long suspension j bridge to Brooklyn, with more of its j kind farther awav. To the left was j the broad Hudson, while between the two towered the skyscrapers. Ladydgerton had provided herself with introductions to the creme de la creme of New York society, and it wr her nlan to Knend nil her tima with , gwh while nr A M re , rpjr . th Mttprifirins , th T ' mat ceived the attentions of the young met ' of fortune. But I.ady Gladys was cap j tivated by te great growing city. Sho j saw what in 1ondon would be regard ed as splendid buildings being pullo down to make room for towering struc tures: railway stations being erected each a city in itself: tunnels far dowi tinder the Hudson -indeed, every va i riety of growth which rapidly as it j rose (Ld not rise fast enough for the growiijg population. Instead of l-ing Interested in the dinners that were given her and her: mother Gladys srent her time visiting' objects ,f interest. Unfortunately for j her mother's plan she could not control ; her daughter, who seemed to be in-' fatuuted with America. Everything' was on so large and magnificent a' scale. In comparison what she had been accustomed to seemed dwarfed, i The peopie in England, though more' enterprising than those ou the con-! tinent of Europe, appenrtvl slow going end old fashioned. Jl eemed to her that in America had been stored cen- turies nt - lasted energy. lJpg 'i nere were no curious relics of a dead past the fine arts were as nothing but everything else was Immense, magnifi cent and moving onward with the pow er and rapidity of a huge planet through space. One day a party of which Lady Gladys was a part alighted from a car riage at the entrance to a manufactur ing establishment covering nearly a hundred acres with a view to Inspect ing it. They were shown through each department by its foreman. The dress of these persons depended upon the work done la their charge. Some were In business costume, some In overalls. In one of them, a foundry, they were turned over to a young man whose re fined appearance contrasted with h's grimy overalls. He was very attentive, explaining all the manufacturing de vices so clearly that they were easily understood. Lady Gladys asked a great many questions involving explanations above those ordinarily given. The young man was much pleased with the intelligence she evinced in her ques tions and was surprised that she had such a knowledge of mechanics as ad mitted of her asking them. The two parted with a newborn interest in each other. Not lone after this visit Lady Edger ton and her daughter were invited to dine with a lady who apologized for one of the guests they were to meet. t a young man who was not known in j society. "lie has." said tbe hostess, 1 "some hold ou my husband and has j asked for an invitation to meet you and : your daughter. But your acquaintance j need only be for the evening." In re peating this to her daughter Lady Ed i gerton also transmitted the intelligence I that the hostess had felt obliged to in7 I vlte a man to meet them for whom she did not care to vouch. Lady Gladys noted the Information and said she . would act npon It. When the dinner came off and the guests met In the drawing room Glndys recognized in one of them, resplendent 1 In evening dress, the man in overalls I who had shown her through the foun dry. She started, but when the young . man. though somewhat embarrassed. ' greeted her with a pleasant smile she ! recovered herself and returned It. He was Introduced as Mr. Morlock and was assigned to take the scion of Brit ish aristocracy to dinner. Seated side by side, the two at once fell Into ani mated conversation. "Where did you learn so much about mechanics?" he asked. "I have always fancied that line." re plied Lady Gladys, "and when at Gir ton took a special course in It. I pre sume you learned it in a better way than theoretically that is. practically." "I first learned it theoretically, "with some practice thrown in." "How?" "At the Polytechnic institute." The girl looked surprised. But American ways were new lo her. ar.d she was ready to hear almost any thing. Still, this case puzzled her. She had met him as foreman In a foun dry. She had been told that he was not one of the elite in society. He had snflieient Influence to demand an Invi tation to meet her. and. lastly, he waa a graduate of one of the first scientific institutions in the country. What did it mean? The lady was too well bred to Inter rogate her dinner companion as to his social status and contented herself with conversation, which she found not only entertaining, but charming. After dinner she found an opportunity to speak with the hostess, who told her something about the young man. All the information vouchsafed was this: In America, or. rather. New York, a position in what is called society can only be attained by an effort, or. in the -case of bachelors, by certain serv ices to hostesses.
