Money for Wives

The president of the Pin Money asso

women, working la thalr own borna, who

Every " woman
who ta engaged In
carrlea with It a
pay envelope la
continually called upon to liaten to the
walla ol tha married women who want
to find out aome way In which thev
can earn ,few dollars. Nor are these
married women always the wtvea of
poor men. Oftener than not. they are
the wived of rich men who glvg them
everything but money. .
Indeed, there are, so many rich woman
who are anzloua ta make a little money
with which they may do aa they pleaie
that the managera of the Woman'a Ex
chances, which were established to help
tha needy, have found H neceasary to
bar out tha oakea and pies, and Jeluea I to ,hava anything above iba bara necea
and preserves, and ambroldertea-that niaiUee. tba wife must .help bring tn money
offered by women who not infrequently
drive up In a limousine when they
fetch the warea for which they hope
to get a few centea.
There la ao meaner Injustice on earth
than that practised by the tight-fisted
husband who refueee to give hie wife a
personal allowance In accordance with
hie mesne. Tet there are thousands and
thousands of such men. They permit
their wives to Indulge In tha wildest ex
travagance In dress, and to live luxuri
ously, ao far as maintaining an, eetab
llahment la concerned, but the women
buy on bills which bubby religiously
audits, and they never have a penny of
their own. The poorest show girl handles
mora money and baa mora financial In
dependence than they.
These poor rich women are often put
to terrible embarrassment for the lack ot
money. Very often tbey suffer cruelly
from It. for many of them have come
from poor homes, and they would like
to kelp soma' unfortunate suiter -or
brother, or make (he last daya of a
father or mother easier or mora com
fortable. ". ...,
In order to get wiejnay wealthy women
or at least women whose husbands are
wealthy-are often driven to desperate
and dishonest expedients. Sometimes
they go to money lenders and become
the prey of those sharks; sometimes
an accommodating grocer advances a
needed ten-dollar bill and charges It
up ta potatoes and onions. Sometimes a
woman sella a new frock for a tenth of
Its price to get a little money to buy com
forts for someone near and dear ta bar,
and whom It Is her duty to help.
Nor need any stern moralist blame the
women married to stingy men who do
these things. Any wife who makes bar
husband a comfortable home, wbo bea.-s
and rears bla children, wbo keeps up bis
soclsl position and doea all the multi
farious things demanded of the modern
woman wbo Is at tha heed of an estab
lishment, earns not only her board and
clothes, but money In her hand, and If
her husband refuses to give It to her she
la perfectly pustlfled in taking bar own
any way aba can get It.
But the wife's lark of money It not al
waya the result of nenurlousness on the
part of her husband. Oftener than not
It is the outcome of poverty, of aa in
come that la not sufficient to meet the
demands made upon It la thla day of
high cost of living- The maa doea the
best ha can. He la aa generous as pos
sible to his wife, and aha knows and ap
preciates It, and her desire to make
money ta the out flowering of her love
for him. She wants to ease the buroe
that be bears.
It Is a hard thing for a woman to look
at bar has band and aee him working be
yond Bis strength to support bis family.
It Is a cruel thing to have a little child
that needs some surgical operation to
correct aome physical defect, and not to
have tba money to have It done, or to
have a talented boy or girl to whom
yoa cannot glva the advantages that
would enable them to take the place
they are entitled to In life. 80 It la no
wonder, that multitudes of married
women are asking eagerly what can tbey
da ta earn a little money in tba hour or
two that tbey have at. their disposal
while tbey .watca the pet boll or the
