One Mother Keeps Secret Scandal
About Her Daughter Until
After She Marries
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
The other day several women
were having lunch together in a
restaurant and, as usual, the con
versation turned on men and the
type of women men admire.
The consensus of opinion was in
favor of the clinging vine, either
genuine or camouflaged. Some of
the opinions were as follows:
"Mary graduates the first of June,
and how I am -going to keep that
scandal about her dark is what is
We looked at Mary's mother in
blank amazement. She was the pic
, ture of cheerfulness, and here she
was glibly mentioning scandal in
connection with her daughter.
"Well, what is the scandal?"
some one asked, who suspected a
joker in the statement.
"The scandal about my lovely
daughter that I hope to conceal un
til she is safely married is she is
clever. She actually enjoys good
books, good plays, and she has opin
i ions about things."
"But I thought they liked them
clever nowadays," someone said,
But Mary's mother, who has sons
as well as daughters, shook her
head: "They pretend to, but their
ideal is still the doll-baby type, clad
irt fluffy ruffles and afraid of a
A Premium on Deficiencies.
And the highly successful matron
continued: "That is why woman is
still in the crawling stage of her
development, and why so few ac
quire any degree of self-expression,
even though they are gifted with
exceptional talents. Man puts a
premium on her deficiencies, and to
please .him a woman must cramp
her gifts as Chinese women used to
cramp their feet."
We stood up for the men for a
decent interval and said they ad
mired brains, efficiency and execu
tive gifts, bu eventually everyone
wound up by agreeing with Mary's
mother that, in spite of all that
women have accomplished during
the war, to prove their brains and
v ability, the favorite 1919 model of
femininity is the weaker vessel.
"By their wives ye shall know
J them," and a second woman warm
ing to the weaker vessel theme as
if it had been an actual brickbat
aimed at her head, began to check
off the wives of the world's most
I wish it were possible to call
the roll of this: "Brainless wives
of eminent men" series, if only to
show how really clever women can
be when they are genuinely roused.
But the "brainless wives" series
had been compiled from ladies too
high in station to point morals and
adorn tales. Suffice to say that
another woman present had the
grace to remark:
"These brainless wives showed
sufficient intelligence to pick win
ners, didn't they?"
"Did they pick, or were they
Mary's mother smiled "we in
variably do the picking, but curi
ously enough the men never found
it out till along came that tattling
Irishman Bernard Shaw and gave
away our pretty little scheme."
Clever as You Please, Only
"The trick as I "nderstand it,"
said the very happy wife of a suc
cessful man, "is to be as clever as
you please, only do not let your
sin be discovered ."
Someone sighed and said:
"Everyone realizes that a good edu
cation is a matrimonial handicap to
a girl even in 1919. But if we send
our daughters to a 'Miss Pinker
ton's' and believe me these schools
flourish today" even as they did in
Thackeray's time she may not
marry after all, and of what bene
fit is her expensively cultivated ig
norance then, poor thing?"
This point was duly considered
by five women, all of whom had
marriageable daughters. And while
they conceded that education was
a handicap to marriage, the tremen
dous over-balance of the sexes due
to war, made the fashionable illiter
acy a bit risky.
If a girl does not marry she will
require some genuine education
with which to get through life, par
ticularly if she would take up a
profession. And if she has been
sent to a "Miss Pinkerton," and
carefully and expensively trained in
the paths of ignorance, she would
have no foundation on which to

ficulty could be obviated by a cam

strong point of agreeing with him
whatever he decided about the grass.
And she lets him take little Arthur

Galsworthy On Dogs
He (the dog) is by far the nearest
thing to man on the face of the
earth, the one link that we have
spiritually with the animal creation.
Get yourself chained to your
study chair as a watch dog is to its
kennel for a year or so. You could
then write convincingly on our mor
bidity for desiring -to do away with
your chain by law.
Yes, the position of the dog is
unique. We have made him intelli
gent; and it is sinister ethics to
choose him for vivisections or inoc
ulations because of the very intelli
gence we have implanted. We have
taught him faith and love, and I
feel are ourselves bound by what
we have taught him.
