Her mother-heart ideas were apparently "academic," as it does not appear that she cared much for her baby, after being assured that she bad a good home. It was thought that Bhe disapproved, in a way, of marriage, but it now appears she didn't, for she is wel! and truly married to Mr. Gilman, who seems to cut no more ice in the second arrangement, at least so far as newspa per comment goes, than Mr. Stetson cut in the first matrimonial experience of the gifted lady. Mrs. Stetson is under stood to be an anarchist. If so, her course in the agreed divorce is consist ent, as the law does not recognize di vorce by collusion. It is not likely that even the greater number of women who worship at the feet of Mrs. Gilman ap prover of such remarkable "advance ment' as her career shows, or that they will be induced to believe it is all right, now that she has married another man, after her suppositious scorn of matri monial slavery. Nevertheless Mrs. Gil man may not be so inconsistent as she seems, for she maintains that the Gos pel is, that we shall love one another, It looks like free love. but. doubtless. Mm.

Mrs. Gilman was, and probably is still, a great believer in the theory that woman Rhnuld be emancipated, and her book. "Woman and Economics," is a power- and not simply love our own ful presentation of her position. She believes in the home, but that woman should come out of it more into the world, and not waBte her energies on the petty details of housekeeping, hav ing to beg money from her husband, and getting her board and clothes as alms. At the same time, she always said sweet things about mother-love. and tenderness, but she tnougbt that all the world needed a mother's love al moet as much as children needed it. Charlotte Perkins Gilman's career is called to mind by her recent marriage. She married, as Charlotte Perkins, a man A face that will nevermore know, named Stetson .

She was burning up with genius and, as one of her friends put it, it soon became appar ent that the two were not suited. Mrs. Stetson felt that family cares were too heavy for her. Her genius was in dan ger of being quenched. Mr. Stetson's income was limited, and, perhaps, hn waB limited, too. So she finally deter mined that her dearest and most inti mate friend, Miss Grace Ellery Chan nicg of Boston who, by the way, is a dranddaughter of William Ellery Chan ning, the famous Unitarian preacher, would make a far better wife for Mr. Stetson, and a far better mother for the little daughter than she herself could ever dream of being. Continuing the tale. Mrs. Stetson's friend says, that to think was to act, and Mrs. Stetson in vited Miss Channing to visit her at Pas adena. She did everything possible to promote friendship between Miss Chan ning and her husband, and Mr. Stetson was not elow to discover that she was a very lovely and lovable girl. Then the matter was calmly talked over between husband and wife; a separation was agreed upon, a divorce quickly procured and, after a suitable lapse of time, Mr. Stetson married Miss Channing. Mrs. Stetson that was, was present at the wedding, and accompanied the newly- married pair on their wedding Journey The power to hide.
