You can -jet a belter saddle now for

Wherever we look on the workb of
mediaeval a rt, we see numberless con
ceptions of the Madonna and child.
No two of them may be alike y.-it they
all portray the painters ideal of pure
maternity and joyous innocence Mary
may boa Dutch blonde, or an Italian
brunette, or even a riard German
housewife of the old .school: but, plain
or beautiful, slui is always honest,
clear-eyed, placid content. And. the
child the infant llenules, of tiie
Christian faith, he who must cleanse
the Augaon stables of the world, the
wrestler the serpent strangle!', the hc:r
of intinite potentialities lies trying
with tho breast of his mother. How
uUerly human it all is! Tho hrid of
God is a Syrian peasent girl; the son
of God. help'.ens, naked infant. How
supremely happy, too, she appears, as
frhe ga.es calmly down into the eyes of
her hoy! What joy is t here Hue that
of a molher? Joseph is not always
present, and, when he is, it is only as
a decent accessory. Helooks awkward.
His ofliee. appears to have ceased.
Usually, if not always, there is a look
in his f.ic; expressive, of deep thoi..Tht,
as one who would say, "This is the
man-Christ who is born to redeem the
race, and set a perfect example for all
men and women to follow.' Yet Ihere
seems to be a doubt in his mind as to
tho conception, the beginning, the
great mystery. The artist never Knows
exactly how or where lb pose him.
Tho child, however, is an obvious nec
essity, but holds a secondary place.
Mary is the centre. All eyes turn to
her. n a thousand canvasses she
stands on the saintly lype of the
glorifed human mother. As tho ages
proceed our ideals must either advance
or retrograde. There is no middle
position. The Roman church removed
the Gods for hor saint, and substituted
the Virgin for lonn Dea. iJut, as
Paganism e-ave way to Christianity, so
the mystical theology of nineteen
centuries is rapidly vanishing under
the firm light of modern scientific
research. What is false will be aban
doned. The time has come when the
Virgin must be respected und revered
for the great good which she accomp
lished by bringing the grand m;in
Chri&t into the world, and henceforth
all mothers must look to her as otter
ing the noblest possible example for
them to follow and imitate, in order
that they, too, may bring into the
world pure and lovable children,
worthy T being called the images of
Thers are in our country three mil
lion wives at least, and unless poverty
has compelled, thousands of their chil
dren havo i.ever known their mother's
breasts. Three million women, all
vowed to the duties of maternity, and
tho greater number of them deficient
in nourishment and its elementary re
quirements. And why? Because they
have undergone no kind of preparatot y
training; because they are ignorant of
themselves and of t heir duties; because
too frequently, they wero wedded from
sordid motives and to unsuitable men;
because when love should have entered
as a God, he came as a beast. Hence,
the untold wretchedness of their love
less lives, ttie daily miseries that des
troy their homes; to say nothing of
shameless adulteries wide-spread
prostitution, loathsome diseases, and
early deaths. Our law courts reveal
but a very small fraction of the exist
ing social corruption. Could wo see
the whole at once, we should recoil
with horror at the sight. Through
out all nature, reproduction as tho
highest functions are more or less
subsidiary. Maternity is thus the
supreme effort of the supreme organ
ism, neither to be undertaken lightly
or without forethought. Yet the
mothers of our marriageable girls have
rarely given their daughters anv infor
mation un to sexual relations. Pru
dishnets or false modesty restrains.
Consequently, their knowledge, ac
quired by experience, often come too
late to n event unhappy rasults. The
same girl may not study physiology.
They mut not learn how they were
produced, and how they are formed.
They are thus a ready prey of all who
can take advantage of their ignorance.
The period arrives when the girl,
young, fair, innocent, but intensely
ignorant of all she ougnt to know, is
thrown by conventional marriage into
the arms of a man who whose habits
and thoughts have nothing in common

olTspring must inherit ami reproduce
at maturity the virus derived from its
father. Lovely and innocent as she
may he, she is not the tyuical mother,
nor is her boy the Christ. Cyris never
produced our ideal. In that ignorant
and despotic region she could not h ive
exist jd. Only poets and naintei-s h ive
had occasional glimpses at her. The
typical mother can neither be a slave
nor a genitrix of slaves. She is the
free -the perfect women, who h.-s b v n
embraced ty the divine man.
All that substracts from the freedom
of woman hinders her developement,
and therefore lessens her value hj h
wife and a mother. For this reason
we do not cease to ;id vocato the necess
ity of equal rights and equal law? for
the sexes before society can poss b;y
imorove in purity and in hap:ine-s.
and before woman can rise to her true
dignity. Although the duties of men
and women differ, tlie status of both in
the eyes of the law and of society
should be the same, and nothing should
be required of the one which is not
also demanded of the other. For in
stance, let men continue to regard
chastity as indispensable in women,
but let woman also require the same
from man. And let her, if modest, re
gard as a profound insult a proposal
from any one whoso delicacy and power
of appreciating her purity have been
destroyed by contact with lust arid in
famy. Too long has women been en
slaved, the toy und victim of man.
Hut the dawn of her emancipation has
come. A few have aireidy seen the
light. The bunds which enswathed
woman's faculties are being loosened:
may tliey soon drop off! Then we
shall see her lovelier than anything
sculptured by Grecian chisel, calm
browed as Athene, majectic as Hebe,
lightlimed and stiong of mind, joyous,
serene, loya!, true of heart and purpose
irradiated with a wL-e intelligence,
despising sham and frivolities, tender
with a woman's swoetst tenderness,
loving simpie t-uth a noble mother
raised to a higher peJestal. This is
