Tlio scandal has stirred up (pllto a
healthy agitation In Kuglnud, for It has
brought to public attention tlio methods
nnd prollts of a vocation that nourished at
thocxMjusouf tlio romantic, thu silly mid
tho weak minded. For a score of years
tho man Duncan "lived like a lord"
on "personals" and fees obtained from
scheol girls, ancient maidens mid Im
presslonublo widows who desired to get
husbands. Men also contributed to tlio
prosperity of Tho Matrimonial News of

small minority did so with honesty of pur
pose. Tho majority of tho wife seekers de
sired tho acquaintance of women with fat
bank accounts, and when they saw thu

tenth of thu property secured through mar
rlage Mr. Duncan contracted to make Mr.
A. ac(ualnted with Miss B., the heiress,
and to further the match to his utmost,
tho fee to lie paid within ten days after I lie
wedding. Tho compact signed, sealed and
delivered, the wooing sped smoothly on to
the church door.
So Mr, Duncan went on, leavljig behind
him a long trail of wrecked lives and uu
happy unions, for it is a pretty well estab
lished proposition that no marriage is a
success that lias not mutual esteem as tho
prime reason for the compact.
The venerable Iindonor, however, Is not
the only ono who lias grown ricli by the
methods Indicated above America has
matrimonial agencies as well as Knghuul.

The completed llguresof the census in

tacts. First, the percentage of Increase has
been less than in any previous decade (the

ducting the 1,700,000, or about that, of Eu

would appear that tlio natural increase
