Too Many
Women Coddle
Their Griefs
In all the many mistaken theories
of life that - women hold there is
none, perhaps, that has worked so
much harm to themselves and others
as the prevailing idea that there is
something peculiarly feminine and
angelic in cherishing and brooding
over a sorrow.
"Men must work, and women
must weep, so runs the world away,"
says the poem, and women have
faithfully believed that they were
never so fully doing their full duty
as when they were sit tine uo and
sobbing into their best pocket hand
' Indeed, the ability to grieve long,
inconsolably and senselessly, has be
come an exclusive feminine charac
teristic, and women not onlv culti
vate it in themselves, but they ad
mire it in other women. They think
well of a sister who "doesn't get
over" things.
They praise her whose heart Is
buried in the grave of a worthless
and drunken husband. They"-have
a peculiar tenderness for spinsters
who pine for forty or fifty years for
the faithless lovers who deserted
them and, in short, it may be said
that a woman's ideal of her sex is a
melancholy creature in bombazine
and crepe, who, after some misfortune-
never smiles again,
A woman who is jolly, and who
show a disposition to throw off
trouble, and take a bright and cheery
view of the world, is always re
garded with suspicion by other
It is this idea that a woman's tears
are accounted unto her for righteous
ness that causes women who formu
late the laws of society to make a
cult of grief. When a member of
a family dies, custom causes the
women of the household to shroud
themselves in unwholesome black
garments that are an ever-present
reminder of their sorrow.
They must darken the house and
shut out God's blessed sunlight. They
must lock the miano, that there may
be no music to lighten their sad
hearts; they must go nowhere save
to the cemetery, where the sight of
the new-made grave tears the
wounds open afresh; they must see
nobody except the old friends' and
relatives, whos?" very sympathy
quickens' the agony of memory and
loss. "
The result Is inevitable. The very
touch and sight of the gruesome
black clothes, the darkened and
gloomy house, the absence of every
thing that could distract one's atten
tion from their sorrow, engenders a
morbidness of grief in women that

credit to themselves for grievJng
more for their dead,; and are bitter
in their denunciation of men for so

It is an unjust charge. Nobody
who has ever loved and lost ever
forgets, but men are wise enough to
know that there is no merit in mak

or of brooding over hopeless sor

Bad as this is for the woman indi

phase is the injustice it does to oth
ers, for in her loyalty to the dead a
woman is often a traitor to the living.
One of the saddest tragedies that
I ever knew was the breaking up of
a happy home through the death of
a baby. To the mother all the joy
and interest and happiness in the
world seemed buried in the .tiny
grave, and she spent her days and
nights, for weeks and -.months,', sor
rowing oyer the little bed arid weep

whom the coming of the baby had
been but an incident, not the whole
of life, and, while he grieved over its
loss, it did not quench his interest
in other things, and in a little while
he wanted to go back to his old
amusements and occupations.. .
Absorbed . in her ' sorrow, and
drowned in her tears, his wife refused
to go with hint, and remained at
home to nurse her grief. At first the
husband tried to cheer her and com
fort her, but by and by he became
weary of her morbidness, and, tired
of coming home to a melancholy wife
and a gloomy house, he drifted away
from her, until, all too late, the wife
woke up at last to find that she had
lost both husband and child.
This is not an isolated case. Many
a woman, in her grief over the death
of her father or mother, forgets the
duty she owes her husband and her
children. Mant woman whose own
heart is heavy goes about laying the
burden of her grief on all she meets,
for there is no selfishness like the sel
fishness of sorrow, that is so ab
sorbed in Its own woe that it is ready
to sacrifice everything and every
body to it.'
