MAN IS TO BLAME FOR MANY THINGS Mrs. MeKllllp's Letter Aroases am Omaha Woaasus to tho Pwlat ot Brok.las; m La see (or tho 1 Other lido. 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 means. 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 train. 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 reasonable woman there is A counterpart among men. Speaklbg cf weakness only, women havs their share, but when It comes to actual sin and vice, where is the prtponderaneeT 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 selfish and patient la discharge of them than axe the husbands.

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.

But mamma." said Uttle Willie, "I did not make up my mind that I wanted the watermelon until I finished the peaches and cream!" A teacher In one of the schools near Philadelphia had one day been so disturbed by the bussing of lips and shuffling of feet of the children that she was on the verge of distraction. Finally she said: "Children, I cannot stand so much noise. Please be quiet for a little while, at least Let me see If you can't b so still that you could hear pin drop." ' Instantly every enlld became as still as a mouse. Then a little boy in a hack seat piped out with marked Impatience: "Well, let her drop!"

"But" said Stockier, "think of how many nice things a roomful of gold would buyt Don't you think that you had better let the man have him?"

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 printer's hand. 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.

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, Iowa. DOES NOT ISSUE MANDAMUS Jadge Read Grants Reetralalag Order, hat Hot Final Writ la Advertising Case. 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- tract 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 council. 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.

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 Fischer added: '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. Tou Uke the American girl best yon know her.

"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."

NalU Plan ii Proposed by Hebrukt EeUQ Mer chant to Form Company, WILL BE DISCUSSED AT COKVEKTIO Promoters Believe Protertfeai te Thele Property Ceald Be Better Se eared mt Less Coat hy This Method. 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.
