Will Women Abandon Love?
Gertrude Atherton, the novelist, has
been writing for Harper's Bazar on
"The Woman in lx)\e." In her llrst
two papers Mrs. Atherton discusses
those women in history whose love
episodes have been the most striking
thing about them. In her third paper,
however, not yet published, she makes
Koine predictions concerning the place
that love will take in the future. Mrs.
Atherton does not go so far as Mrs.
Belmont, who predicts that there will
be a war between the sexes, due to
the fact that men will not give wom
en the suffrage. Mrs. Atherton be
lieves ami states, however, that from
now on the love element will be a far
less vital thing In women's lives than
it has been heretofore. She thinks
that the broadening out of feminine
Interests, the entrance of women into

In his account of a dinner at the
Thackerays, Mr. Bigelow throws a
curious light on the subject of the
trouble between Charles Dickens and
his wife. He describes the latter as
"not a handsome woman. though
stout, hearty mid matronly there
was something a little doubtful about
her eye, and 1 thought her endowed
with a temper that might be very
violent when roused, though not eas

that a Miss Teman—1 think that iB
the name—was the source of the difR
culty between Mrs Dickens and her
husband. She played in private the
atricala with Dlckena, and he sent her
a portrait in a brooch, which met wirh
an accident requiring it to be sent to
the Jeweler's to be mended. The
Jeweler, noticing Mr. Dickens' Initials,
sent It to his house. Mrs. Dickens'
sister, who had always been in lore
with him and was jealous of Miss
Tenian, told Mrs. Dickens of the
brooch, and she mounted her husband
with comb and brush. This, no doubt,
was Mrs. Dickens' version in ttM
