Are mixed marriages a failure? Yea, nio( likely. But probably only, a little more freipiently than other marriages. Who that knows the situation will dare to say that, from any ideal viewpoint, marriage is conspicuous as thenn-d social institution? How many husbands and wives are boon companions, comrades, united in that eternal friendship which marriasre at its best should be? - But that's anoiher story. Mixed marriage is dangerous between member of any group . that have not learned to respect and love one another. As all of one's environment enters into one's marital relation ship, it is plain that for Jew and non-.'ew. Catholic and Protestant and so on all along the lino of surviving sociui antagonism-, mixture of these groups in marriage would he better delayed until their mutual attitude has: changed into permanent friendliness and their intercourse has be come as natural with one another as it is anion" themselves. That is the vanishing point of the problem of mixed marriage, But. until then, all those who make this dangerous experiment simply import into their particular ease another of the many factors which normally make successful marriage so diflieult and rare an achievement. l-'or the Jew, the problem of mixed marriages is complicated slill fur ther by its plain application to his very existence as a separate social fact and' the I'oiilitHiatue of his religious career. sTor him the increase of mixed marriage can .mean only a slow suicide, a reabsorption into the ocean .if humanity, the attainment of his Xirvana, for which he had hoped only on the day of the completion of his mission, when a united human brotherhood would acknowledge ti e universal fatherhood of a just and loving God. . . irlAVor, OKORGK PAR80N8 Clerk, ft A.

A certain young Unitarian minister la visiting a friend and classmate who lives In Roxbury, eays the 'Boston Her ald, and while the two were sitting around a fire and spinning yarns the minister who is visiting and who comes from the west told this: "When I went west first I was In a small town called L e, and In the choir of my church the village blacksmith did the nobJe work of barytone. He had a voice that could shake moun tains, and whatever It lacked In any other feature it made up in volume. He couldn't read music any more than he could English, but he learned a tune very readily. One Sunday we 'were to be favored with a r.ew anthem be cause it was a special ocasion, and the barytone had one portion all to himself. Unfortunately he had missed mauy of the practices. The anthem went along excellently until It came to a beautiful j:art which read: 'And, dying, bids us all aspire.' Here the rest of the singers stopped short, in that quick, sudden way that choirs have, and in, the ensuing stillness sounded the onderous tones of the blacksmith: 'And dying brides are filled with fire." tltt mart ?ta By ALFRED SUTRO.

Society in America is not based on a peerage, but upon a greed for power. Money, opens nvy door, anywhere in the worM. Society with the biggest S is a society wilh the biggest purse. Since the middle classes have bet nine so rich in Hngland there is really no objection to them. There never ought to have been at any time, I suppose, but, now that they can buy automobiles, and carriagi s, and town houses, and shooting Iwxes, end all that sort of thing, they mingle with the smart set quite inoffensively. Social ambition is only anoiher means to get rich. The interest in" difference lx-lwi.cu h'nglish society and American society is its complete rot-r.-al of incentive.
