waist deep In the gllsteny feathery stuff,
whipping around corners In a gale, with our
nose pink and our finger tips numb. And we
worried about the
precocious Spring
wore comfort! of fur and
spplo-blossoms In our too
bonnet. No wading now of any kind we walk
abroad and twiddle our thumbs and are bewil
dered but we dream of wading to come
heavy green sea-water with the foam Hk the
sleet to beat the blood Into our cheeks no
sleeves, 00 fur, no Spring bonnet to worry
about, but a free body and t warm skin In tbe
sun. We are just at the uncomfortable, awk

Haven't we bad enough of It? Haven't

H was announced In a few easily-overlooked
tines in the pewapspera that a
young girl of northern New York hmi
died after one year of marriage tiled.
It was thought, of a broken heart. .She
was It, this little American brkle. A year
ago, her face aglow with happiness and
neautlful with trust, she married, It wna
then said, aoeordlng to th respected
phrase, "'Th man of her choice."
The truth was it was the man who
had chosen her and who had overborne
her maidenly reluctance to man-leg.

who were designed by nature to make
ideal wives uml mothers never marry?
