All Marriage is a Leap Into the Dark
Marrying a Person You Never Have Seen is No More Risky Than the Chances We All Take in Picking a Husband or Wife,

ta(ned accounts of the marriage of a
middle-weed couple who had never met
until tho wedding day, and In which the

to thus marry, sight

his Ideal of female
pulchritude, but, so
far ' as Is known,
thja s the first time
an American man has entered the holy
stats' without taking a squint at his fel

a peach or a lemon.
Of, course we all know that appear
ances are deceptive, and the eye s the
pdorest of all guides to Ko by, especially
ln judging a woman, Still, the faithful
candidate for matrimony has felt that ho
must do what he could to protect him
(elf' against unnecessary rliks, and, at
Iraptf pick out a wife that looked good
to hjlm. Hence, the world standi ap
palled at the reckless bravado of the
man who has added one more foolhardy
hazard to the big gamble by marryini;
a lady whore countenance he has never
Yet, after all, docs this man who mar
ries the veiled jady take a much bigger
chance, even on, her looks, than docs
every other man who' takes a wife?
For what a woman looks like today
she will not look like .tomorrow, nor the
day after, nor the years after that.
Romeo, swears that he knows every curve
and dimple of Jultettff face and even"
.adorable expression that flits across It.
But what about the sharp angles, and
wrinkles, and hollows, and crow's feet
tlit sickness, or age, or temper changes
The truth Is that all marriage la a leap
Into the dark, -and the result depends so
completely upon accident that some
times one Is tempted to think that the
grabbing principle of selecting a hus
band or wife It Just as good as any
It Is one of the most tragical facta of
existence that there seems to bo no way
of judging beforehand what sort' of a
husband or wife any man or woman will
make, and that alt the ordinary tests of
character by 'which we judge people fall
absolutely before the acid test of matrimony.
For Instance, our rough Ideal of a fine
man Is a man who Is honest, upright.
just In his dealings with others, and a
liberal spender. If, In addition to the bo
qualities, wo can say that he Is a good
son we feel than we have described a
paragon that any Woman ought to thank
God for getting.
Dut docs the possession of these ad-
New Method of
mlrablo qualities insure that a man will
make a good husband? It docs not.
Many a man who la as sober as tuc.
town pump, and as domestic as the
house cat, and as upright as the moral
law, Is a grum grouch at home, and, a
grinding tyrant whose wife trembles be
fore him. Many a man who is liberal to
the outside world Is a. tightwad to his
wife, or else he's so generous about set
ting up'drlnks for the boys that thero's
never enough money to bily his wife
shoes. Many a man who Is just to his
employes Is .cruelly unfair to his wife,
and cyen the good son not Infrequently
considers It perfectly fair to offer up his
wife as a sacrifice to tils mother.
No woman can estimate what sort of
a husband a man will make by the es
teem In which he Is held by the World,
for there Is nothing truer than the old
French proverb which says that there
are men "who are the Joy of the street
and the sorrow, of the home."
So every woman who marries really,
goes 11 blind. She has no possible way of
telling what sort of a husband she Is
And the man who marries takes equal
risks. He picks, out a girl who appears
to be pretty, and sweet, and amiable, and
Industrious, and economical, but no hu
man being except the girl and her
mother and they won't tell know
whether she possesses those virtues In
reality, or If she has Just assumed them
as bait wherewith to catch a husband.
Many a poor man who has been ap-
tured by a beautiful' face has found out
that the,opd looks all capve off, with
the paint and powder- and false hair and
transformations that, were too .much
trouble, to be worn everyday for a mere
husband. Many an unfortunate, man haw
ascertained that the girl who was so
meek and mild that butter wouldn't' melt
In her mouth before marriage turns Into
a shrew and a virago after maVrlage.
Many a man who marries a poor girl be
cause he wants a thrifty and Industrious
wife finds out that, the girl who has had
to work and economize before., marriage
goes on. a perfect orgy, of spending ahd
self-Indulging as soon as she's got-a-man,
to toll for her.
On the other hand, many a girl who
has been a silly little butterfly before
marriage becomes a household rrub
afterwards; many a girl, who has been a
gay llttlo flirt before marriage turns
Into the most devoted of wives, antt
many a girl who has been extravagant,
becomes a model of thrift when sho hae"
her husband's money to handle.
And no soothsayer can warn a man In
time to do him any good of which way
the cat Is going to Jump,
Matrimony Is a case In which yu
never can tell what will happen, or how
ptople will turn out, and, In effect, we
all wear veils before our faces and over
our characters when we cet married
nnd our husbands and wives never really
see us as wo are Until after the cere.-,
mony- Or else, perhaps, there would bo
no more wedding bells.
