The Childless Woman and the Mother Speak
By DOROTHY DIX. ,
AS IT SEEMS TO BE. :
The Childless Woman Speaks.
"I have no children and my life is
as empty as an unfilled vessel.
"I hate the orderly desolation of
my house, with nothing ever awry
in it. No mud is ever tracked on my
rugs by little feet. No little finger
prints mar my mahogany. There is
no smudge from grubby little hands
on my picture books. Everything is
prim, precise, and soundless in my
home. , v
"And it is so quifjT There is no
gay childish laughter, no babbling
little voices. No cries of exeitement
over the wonders of a world in which
fresh discoveries are made every day.
Everything is as still and solemn, and
dull as in a church.
"My husband and I are very fond
of each other, but we do not find
much to talk about. Long ago we
learned all of each other's opinions
on every subject under the sun. We
are middle-aged people, and fate
has dealt all our cards, and they
lay face up on the table, so we know
about what we are to have.
"Our plans and ambitions have
either failed or materialized into suc
cess, so we no longer build air cas
tles. Besides, when people reach out
age they lose interest in themselves;
their wants and desires narrow down
to a very little.
"The middle-aged must take their
pleasures, and their hopes, and their
ambitions vicariously, and they are
cheated of this unless they have chil
dren in whom they can live again. My
husband and I would not gape in each
other's faces if we had a beautiful
young daughter whose future we were
planning cjut, and a son in whose
career we were absorbed.
"What plans we would be making
then, what hopes would be gilding our
days, what ambitions would be thrill
ing us, how young life 'would surge
back through our sluggish veins ir
"I think the woman at whose knee
little children have lisped their
evening prayers has been close to God
Himself. I think the woman who has
watched the little child's mind un
fold has been privileged to see mir;
acles, and I know that the only wom
an who ever finds the fountain of eter
nal youth is the one who finds it in
her children. .
"So I do not envy the woman who
has a string of matched pearls. I
envv the woman who has clinging lit
tle arms around her neck. I do not
envy, the woman who has her box at
the opera. I envy the woman who
hears the music ot tne SDheres wnen
a, little child calls her "mother," and
when I come home at night I would
rather stumble over a toy railway
train on the floor than over bags of

children who really live."
Advice to Lovelorn
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
No Discredit to Him.
Dear Mlsa Fairfax:
Am twantv-four. and after aolna about
with a young man for three months found
that he had been married five years, but
haa had tbe marrlase annulled. He hae
aaked me to become hie wife, but my par
ents object. Thelma.
If the reasons for the annulment
of his marriage reflect no discredit
on the man you love I tninic your
parents would do well to be more
lenient in their views. Don't forget
it is of your happiness they are think
ing even while you feel that they are
destroying it Try to discover iust
exactly what are the reasons for their
attitude and if it is simply a prejudice
against the man because of the fact
that he has been previously married,
I think you will be able to make them
feel differently if you talk it over
quietly and without rancor.
' Be Friends.
Dear Hlsa Falrfaa; I am II and need
your advice. I mot a nice young man whom
I have learned to care for. He told me
he cared for me and thought I was very
nice, but Intimated that marriage would
never ' enter hie lite for years and yean
to come. He told me that he could not
put hie head on builneae and aleo think
about a wife at the eame time. He want
to be good friends with me nevertheleea.
Pleaee advlee me. HEARTBROKEN.
A girl H young as you la not likely to
be very well prepared for marriage. The
tendency la for girls of today not to marry
at so immature an age. Ton can well af
ford to be "friends" with this man. And
for the sake of your dignity, don't hint
about marriage to htm as Z rather sus
pect you have prevloualy done.
