OMAHA, Aug. n. To tho Editor of The
Bee: I have not read the article of Mrs.
Oilman which appeared In the Literary Di
gest, but whether I agree or disagree with
her views would be a matter of no moment
to anyone. I once had the pleasure (?) of
listening lo Mrs. Oilman (then Mrs. Stet
son) when she addressed the Omaha
Woman's club, hut I was much more Im
pressed with her untidy, loose-jointed ap
tetranre than by any brilliancy or depth
In her remarks. Evidently, along with other
reforms for which she was laboring, she
was also an advocate of dress reform, but
was not a pleasing advertisement, by any
My only acquaintance with Mrs. McKll
llp ss a writer is through two communica
tions to the columns of The Bee, In both of
which she evinces far mors admiration for
the male sex than for her own. Probably
no one objects to this, but fscts don't Jus
tify It. unless her snvironment has been ex
ceptional. Her statement that woman has
the easy side of married life may bo true in
her case, but In the larger number of
houses It is not. Man may "bold the heavy
end of the lever" It Is one's right that he
Should; It was so ordained but the fact
that no man has ever been found who
would exchange his sex. If he could. Is evi
dence enough, all things considered, which
he thinks la working undor the greater
Arralsm Mas as Welt.
Mrs. McKlllip's assertion that "thousands
ef women expect love and devotion and all
the fortunate gifts of life as their rightful
due. when they hav neither wit, beauty or
brains, agreeabllity or scarcely common
sense" Is j'ist aa scathing an arraignment
of the other sex aa her own. It displays
great stupidity and lack of discernment on
the part of those same thousands of hus
bands to marry such women when the
won't Is full of noble, desirable ones. For
every silly, brainless. Incompetent iind un

Mrs. McKillip also declares that when the
home Is unhappy, nine times out of ten It
' Is tho fault of the wife. That makes me
tired! To phrase my meaning more ele
gantly. It fills my soul with righteous In
dignation. Just the reverse Is much nearer
truth. Nine-tenths of wives are more loyal
to home ties and marital duties, mure un

than axe the husbands. IX It were as! a

the ratio of divorces would be largely in tx- !
cess of the figurs she quotes.
But the most offensive statement In her
whole article la this: "A woman who has
the comforts of life provided by a husband
who doesn't get drunk and beat her has no
business to allow marriage to he a failure."
Everyone knows a man may drink enough
every day to unfit him for business and the
companionship of any decent, self-respecting
woman he may be an Intolerable nui
sance to his family and obnoxious to every
one with whom he comes In contact, save
his own kind, and yet not beat his wife or
feel disposed to.' The worst that I could
wish for one unwomanly enough to hold
such opinions, and willing to publish them.
Is that shs might be condemned to exDerl
nce the comfort and society of such a
charming husband for a season. It would
not take long to change her mind If she
had any but it goes without saying. Judg
ment so warped and unsound will carry
very Uttle weight.
Whea Character la Molded.
Another gross misstatement Is that a
wife can make what she chooses of a bus-
Dana, noma women nave such power
over soma men, but it la almost Invariably
where It leads to ruin. Boys of 16 and
IT are very crude. Imaginative young anl
male, yet at that age multitudes of them
go out from the control and restraint of
mother and home into the world on their
own behalf. And our beat universities,
colleges and less pretentious schools are
very poor educators along soma lines. We
all know how few Christian homes are
open to the strange young business man
in our cities, how Uttle help he has to do
right, what manifold temptations to do
wrong. These sre the crucial years In
the establishment of character, when the
sculpturing Is done, and this is usually be
fore he falls Into the hands of a wife.
It may be said v-Knoui irreverence that
the Creator himself could not make a man
or a gentleman out of all men, for in
many cases ths possibilities were left out
of his construction. In one paragraph of
the article under consideration there is
evidence that the writer lapses for a mo
ment Into lucidity, for shs acknowledges
that it Is impossible to love a man Just
because he provides a living and keeps his
barn clean, although this Is a complete
contradiction to what precedes.
The homes described as more agreeable
than workshops, with ths possibilities of
culture In music and literature, with ar
tistic adornments and agreeable associa
tiona of husbands and friends, would sat
isfy sny reasonable woman, but, unfor
tunateky. these are the homes of the few
not of the many. Nor can we hope such
ever will be. The requirements of life
must stand aside for bare necsMltlea. The
dally meals to be provided, the ooal octo
pus, the real estate vulture, the unavoid
able accidents and emergencies arising In
every household consume every dollar .of
the average wage earner. And the wife
who must always make one dollar do the
work of two is even more distraught than
he who earned it. Many a husband and
wife have millionaire tastes snd only a
pauper purse with which to gratify them.
The man with the hoe is deserving of sym
pathy, but the Madonna at the tub is even
more to be pitied.

CUPID INVADES A CONVENT

MARRIES CARPENTER WHO WORKS THERE
Like a Medieval Roaaauaea, ths Be
trothed Forgo Their Plans Even
Despite tho Jail Doors
4 Kan's Vows.
Ye good old days of romance Indeed are
gone. No longer the noble cavalier with
sweet stringed lute beneath My Lady's lat
tice and the moon plays away vain fear.
so that anon My Lady comes so softly
down and tremblingly, and they are gone
to his strong castle, there to defy the an
gry lord; no longer the bold knight goes
forth to find the Holy Grail, that if per
chance he does return it is to honor and to
the beauty waiting there yet even in these
prosaic days, when commerce ruies, Cupid,
whose aiming none may know, plays odd
new tricks which may be old renewed;
even in Omaha, a city not well famed In
the romantic tales, and within a few weeks
past tit that the convent has been be
sieged and has yielded up the lady fair.
In Omaha It was not as of old with sere
nadethe lute and the cat find hard wel
come now but the game was played out
simply in a modern way; the man was a
carpenter, Ed Johnson, and the maid a
nun. Sister Mary Louise, in the Sisters of
Mercy convent, at Eighteenth and Cass
streets. Ths two left the convent In a
carriage one Wednesday afternoon and
took the i to o'clock train for Cedar Rap
Ids, where they were married by the
priest. From there they went to Clinton,
la., where Johnson was employed, -and
where they will make their home, setting
up housekeeping with the furniture of W.
T. Johnson, the father of the groom, which
has been stored at the Benson orphanage
since the death of his wife.
There were aa usual In ths trail of Cupid
many obstacles. Johnson left tho city
prison to meet his bride, and she doubtless
passed through trying scenes before the
convent doors closed behind her.
The story Js simple enough until the
chapter before the last where trouble Is
always waiting, set up ready to ths
How Casid Worked.
Young Johnson had for about four years
been doing work about church property and
In this way met Sister Mary Louise, who
was a teacher In the convent schools. The
elder Johnson also worked about the Cast
street convent but knew less about the
Intrigue probably than any other Inter
ested person. The young carpenter did
work at the Banson orphanage and later at
the Cass street convent and was attracted
by ths sweet voiced sister who had f re
quently to direct his work.
But the Interesting chapter, comes when
he was sent to O'Connor, Neb., which Is
six miles from Greeley Center, there to erect
a large barn for the mission; and arriving
there finds the lady of the sweet voice.
J This was In January aad tho work was not
shown before by any house in

complete until last June, when Johnson re
turned to Omaha for a day and then went
on to Clinton to do his work. But there '
wss an understanding and he returned
lately to claim his own.
Now this Is the chapter of trouble. The
carpenter was thrown Into Jail on Monday
charged with being a "suspicious charac
ter" and was held until Wednesday morn
ing, tho day of the departure. Friends
say that he was Imprisoned thus upon the
complaint of the mother superior (truly a
medieval scene) In an attempt to foil the
little god. But if this were true It was
Ineffectual, so the priest withdrew the
vows and Sister Mary Louise was a nun
no more. When young Johnson drove up
to take his bride the father was standing
across tho street and received a wave ot
the hand from the son. When the young
woman drove away with the latter, the
father first became aware of things. And
this Is the story of tho carpenter and of
Sister Mary Louise who Is now Mrs. Kate
Johnson. The couple is at home In Clinton,
DOES NOT ISSUE MANDAMUS
Jadge Read Grants Reetralalag
Order, hat Hot Final Writ la
Judge Read In the district court yesterday
morning granted the petition of the World
Publishing company for an order restrain
ing the mayor and city council from award
ing the annual advertising contract to The
Bee. Tho court declined to Issue the
mandamus requested, naming the Evening
World-Herald as the official newspaper.
In his decision Judge Read said the re
sponsibility and remedy. In case the city
was Injured by the absence of a city paper
nd consequent delay to public work, rested
with the mayor and council. The latter are
now free to make a contract with the
World-Herald, but not with The Bee.
The suit was brought by ths World Pub
lishing company before the council had
made an official award, but after con
clusions had been reached In executive com
mittee session, following an attempt by Ths
Bee to show ths World-Herald did not have
at least $.000 bona fide subscribers on June
304 also that In reality, under certain con
ditions, Tho Bee bid wss ths lower.
Attorney W. J. Connell. who eppeared
for ths mayor and council and Tho Bee,
and City Attorney Wright argued In court
that the court had no Jurisdiction In ths
present status ot the matter, and that the
mayor and council were entitled to certain
discretionary powers In awarding ths eon-
The court ruled that under ths law the
bid of the lowest competent bidder, who
had compiled with .necessary provisions,
has to be accepted; further, that the evi
dence presented to him showed the World
Herald qualified to receive the award. It
was held that an Injunction would not In
terfere with the rights of ths mayor and
It Is understood that If the council does
not make the award to the World-Herald
another attempt to secure ths mandamus
which Judge Read refused will be made at
the opening of the fall term of court, the
supreme court having ruled that In vaca
tion rime a Judge may not Issue a man
damus where there is dispute as to fact.

AGAINST TRADING STAMPsjfQR MtilfjAL INSURANCE
six Uaadred Retailers Record Their
Veto am Negative ef the
Over 600 postal card replies have been
received by Secretary Fischer of the
Retail Grocers' association, to the circular
recently sent out by the committee of re
tailers and It is now authoritatively an
nounced that there will be no trading
stamps hereafter In Omaha. With one
exception every one of the replies was
unfavorable to give out stamps and the
exception wss noncommittal. Every line
of business was represented by replies, and
as thsy represent over 75 per cent of the
retail business of the city the matter. Sec
retary Fischer eays, is settled, secretary
'Using the stamps would cost the re
tailers 6 per cent of their gross receipts
and not benefit either them or their cus
tomers. The only signatures to agreements
to use the stamps which were obtained by
the solicitors were obtained on false re
presentations, to the effect that com
petitors of the retailers being solicited
had signed agreements to use stamps.
Omaha's experience several years sgo with
trading stamps, when the company failed
to redeem Its stamps and quietly slid out
of the city. Is still fresh In the minds of
those retailers, who then used them. The
use of trading stamps Is not businesslike,
and so far as Omaha and other cities In
Nebraska are concerned the 'stampmen will
have hard sledding after the campaign we
have made against them. They are still
working In Lincoln, we understand, but
we have not heard anything from them In
Omaha for several days.

"1 am In receipt of a letter from a friend
In Glasgow, Scotland," said Simon Rohln
sen at tho Omaha View Improvement club
Friday night, "and he stated that American
bacon, the product of the Armour establish
ment at South Omaha, was sold there at
11 eenta, 10 cents and t cents per pound.
This price represented the shipping cost
and the wholesalers' profits. I think that
the matter Is of sufficient Importance
for the Omaha Improvement clubs to take
up, slncs we pay as high as 23 cents retail,
to see If corresponding concessions In the
prices of pork products could not be ob
tained nearer home."

Organising a mutual fire Insurance com
pany will be the principal subject con
sidered and on which action may be taken,
at the third meetlns of the Nebraska
Retail Merchants association.
The convention will be held In Omaha
October C. 7 and t, arid It Is expected that
at least 600 merchants from all parts of ths
state will attend the sessions. Tho associ
ation was organised In Omaha in 1901 with
79 members and about 400 were present
at the annual meeting last year In Lincoln.
Owing to the Ak-Sar-Ben festivities, and
consequent low rates, it Is expected that
many more merchants will attend the con
vention this year.
The notices of and Invitations to the con
vention, to the number of 1914. will be sent
out In a short time. Ths Omnha Retail
Grocers' association Is affiliated with the
stato association and will take an active
part In entertaining the delegates. In
cluded In ths last of 1.914 are retail grocers
In the cities and proprietors of "general"
stores In the country districts. If deemed
advisable the membership. It Is believed,
can be greatly Increased by extending In
vitations to retail dry goods men, retsll
shoe men, druggists and other retailers.
There Is a decided sentiment among ths
retailers of the state in favor of organising
a mutual fire Insurance company, the busi
ness to be confined to members of tbs as
sociation. Owing to the acquaintanceship
among the members, both in a business
and social way, the taking of undesirable
risks could be avoided and at ths same
time the matter of fraud. In the matter of
overvaluations and In other ways, could,
it is believed, be eliminated.
Another feature In favor of such a fire
insurance company as opposed to "foreign"
compsnles which has been brought forward
by members of the association Is that the
premium money would remain at home and
that whatever employes would be required
to conduct ths business of the company
would live in the state and expend their
money in It.
Statistics showing ths number of fire
losseh among the retail merchants of the
stats and the amount of premiums paid by
them will be prepared and It Is believed
they will show that the retail merchants
can save a material percentage on In
surance by forming a company.
