like him well paid one of them She paused the objection un- spoken What is the impediment Alice His income is too email What is Eight hundred dollars year Vou might lit e What Kind of Xot in princely style I will admit Nor scarcely in plebeian hundred father pays six hundred rent and I'm sure our style of living is plain enough Kight dred Oh no I like Harry better than any joUng man I have uiet 1 could love him no doubt lie can't support a wife in any decent kind of Did Jour father and mother begin their married life on a larger income than now Mine did nut a I have often heard them relate Father and Oh according t Job's f turkey was poor cr than they were in the beginning Moth cr did all her on n work even to the wash ing and ironing I believe Father's not over three or four hundred dollars And they were happy together I ail sure doubt In fact heard mother siy that the first hard struggling o heir life were among the happiest she hai that doesn't signify for me That is no reason why her daughter shoul elect to go into the kitchen and spend her i ears in washing ironing and cooking I i man isn't able to support n wife genteelly and in the style which she has been let him marry some Irish cook sowing girl or who ill age his household with the needed economy Young men who can't earn more than eight hundred or a thousand dollars a year shoult not lock into our circle for I don't like to hear you talk in this waj paid her companion We are not superior beings but only the equals of the men Did I siy we were One might infer from your language that you thought so I don't see how the inference can be drawn Our circle for wives you said just now What do 3011 mean by A circle of intelligence refinement taste and said Alice don't say wealth Xo My father though living in good style is not I have heard him say more than once that ne were living up to our income Then We have our own sweet with which to endow our husbands No houses or lands no stocks from which to draw an income nothing substantial on which to claim the right of being supported in costly idleness We must he rich indeed as to personal attractions Wo are educated and accomplished and Alice was a little bewildered in thought nnd did not finish the sentence Xot better educated or accomplished ns girls than are most of the young men who aa earn from seven hundred to a thousand dollars a year In this regard we are simply their equals lint it strikes me that in another view of tho case we cannot even claim an equality They nre our Xot by any replied Alice 1 We shall see Hero is Harry for instance what is his income I think you mentioned the sum just now Kight hundred dollars n year That fa the interest much 7 let me twelve thousand To he equal ns a match fur Harry then jou ho worth thousand lars How you talk Fanny I To the point don't I If we are not superior to tho young men who visit ns simply in virtue lo our sex then our only claim to he handsomely supported in idle self indulgence must lie in the fact that we endow our husbands with sufficient ly goods to warrant tho condition Vou are ingenious No matter of that What havo you to ay against my position Aro we Hitler than young men of equal intelligence nnd education No I cannot say lint we aro If we marry wo must look upon these for husbands men as a general thing elect their wives from rich daughters Our chances in that direction are not very encouraging Your father has no dowry for his child nor has mine Their families are large and expensive and little or ing of the year's income is left at the year's The best they can do for us is to giv e us homes and I feel that it is not much to our credit that we arc content to lean on our fathers already under the dens of years care and toil instead of porting ourselves The thought has led me of late A sober hue came face of Alice as tho sat looking into the cy es of her friend She did not reply and Fanny went on There is wrong in this On what ground of reason are we to be exempt from the com- mon lot of useful work Wu to be- come wives and mothers Is this our pre- 1 Can you hake a loaf of light Nor can Or roast a No Or broil a Just think of it We can manage a little useless em- broidery or fancy knitting can sing and play dance and as to the real and substantial things of life we nre rant and And with all this for- sooth ue cannot think of letting ourselves down to the level and condition of virtuous intelligent young men who in daily useful work arc earning n fair We are so superior that we must have bands able lo support us in luxurious ness or will have Wears willing to pass the man to whom love would unite us in the bonds because hta income is small and marry for position one from whom the soul turns with instinctive sion Can we wonder that so many are un- happy eight hundred dollars How is it possible for a married couple to live in any decent in this city on eight hundred dollars a They mny live in a Very comfortable style if the wife is willing to perform her part What do you mean by her pirt We will take it for granted that she is no better than her husband That having brought him no fortune beyond her dear self she cannot claim superior privileges He ban to work through all the day Under what equitable rule is she ex- None She must do her part if there is anj thing to do with She must keep his bouse if he can afford a But if have only eight hundred dollars year Why rent alone would consume half or more than half of that There would bo no in the case They must And tho wife sit in idleness all the day She would have nothing to do Could she not teach 1 or by aid the of a sewing machine earn a few dollars every week or engage in some other useful work that would yield an income and eo do her Yes the might do something of tho if marriage is to make of 113 it wore better to remain single And live in unwomanly dependence on our parents and relatives No Alice there nearest approach fo heavenly here must be in that state into wife comes when she stands by her husband's side and out of lore far him removes one burden and another from his shoulders end so lightens his work that smiles lakes the place of weariness and tile of care If lie bo rich sho can hardly have is a false sentiment prevailing on this sub- eel and as I think and talk I see it more ind more clearly Our parents havo been in their love for 113 and society as constituted has given us wrong estimates to do useful work in tho household from the nnd we have been taught lhat idleness and were Our brothers are put lo nnd and mado to comprehend From the beginning that industry is able and that the way of useful work is the by which the world's brightest places aru fo be reached we are raised daintily and uselessly so to our duties as wives and Our pride and self-esteem aro d and wo como to think of ourselves as uture queens who aro to bo ministered to n all thing instead of our being rant in loving to others wonder that an anti marriage sentiment s beginning lo prevail among young men of incomes in all our large The fault is in us Alice The ein lies at ur door Wo are not willing to do our hare of work Our husbands must bear 11 the bunions heavily Her friend I have read that tho delight of is the elight of being useful And it seems to no aa I dwell upon the thought that tho to great a but if arc alike poor and know how to moderate llieir de- their home may become an imago of Paradise Eight hundred dollars Alice if you were really fitted to become Henry's wife you might lire with him doing your part happier than a queen That is I must Like in work and card money if wo board is out of tho question No it should never be out of the tion in marriage I think But house rent alone would take half of our That does not follow It does for any house I would consent to live So pride ia stronger than love But pride hag its wages as well as love and the one is bitter while the other is It is the pride of appearance this living for the eyes of other people vv ho do not care a ny for us that is marrying the fair fabric of our social life Fine houses fine furniture dresses shows and costly uries of all kinds are consuming domestic happiness and burdening fathers and bands in all grades of society with and wretchedness Alice wo must be wiser in our generation That is coop ourselves up in two or three little rooms with our eight hundred dollar a year husbands and do our own cooking and housework la is that iny pretty Alice 1 You do not good man You nre not worthy to wed Harry and I trust you will pass him by should he bo weak enough to offer you his hand He can't afford to marry a girl of jour expectations he must content himself with one who like himself regards life as real as earnest and
