Common Sense Versus Hysterics
Dead L<ve Can t Be Restored —The Woman Who Lets Her Hus-
Go if His Love Is Dead Deserves Praise For Sanity
By Dorothy Dix
I A man in New
Jersey grew tired
of his wife and fell
in love with an
whom he wanted to
marry. Instead of
lying to his wife,
and deceiving her,
and indulging in a
eland f stine ro
mance with the
other woman, the
man went frankly
to his wife and told
her all about it.
It was an unfor
tunate and tragical
stat/ of affairs, but the wife had the
goo sense, the good taste, and the
goc Judgment to meet it in a no
blefind dignified manner.
he simply eliminated herself,
he permited her husband to go

lid throwing, or any dirty family

I I think that this woman deserves
/to have a monument built in her
/honor for having set a fine example
for other women in a similar plight
to follow, for in the great crisis of
her life she displayed not only cour
age. but sanity.
Out of the wreck of her marriage
she, at least, sav«d her self-respect
as a woman. /
Her husband's /ove was gone, and
she let him go it. She was too
fine, and too prtiid to keep the body
after the soul of love had fled. She
refused to hold /by the chain of the
law the liusbany who had wearied of
her, who begri/iged her claim upon
him, who foum her society a bore,
and who loath/d the very thought of
her as a wife./

and. perhaps, in so doing did the
best thing she rould to secure her
own happiness since happiness Is so
often found In unselfishness.
Certainly she could have done noth
ing to secure her own peace of mind
in keeping the other two apart, and
binding to her a man who would hate
her more and more for standing in
the path of his desire.
The only dignified and rational way
to deal with a recreant husband is as
this woman has done, and as a
sas woman did, who went to her hus
band's affinity and said to her, "For

Of course, the woman who hangs
on to a man after he's deadly
weary of her and wants to be rid of
her always claims that she does so
because she believes she can win
back his love.
No woman In the world is foolish
enough to really believe this. She
knows that of all dead things nothing
is so absolutely dead as dead love.
For it there is no resurrection day.
Once the charm and illusion that
a woman has had for a man is gone.
It can never be conjured up again,
any more than you can turn the shat
tered rose back into a bud again.
It is, of course, very, very sad when
a husband ceases to love his wife, but
when it happens she cannot alter the
catastrophe by hanging on to him.
She only makes a bad matter worse by
so doing, and she can save her face,
as the Chinese say, if not her heart,
by voluntarily releasing him.
It is most encouraging to read of
cases like these of the New Jersey
and Kansas wives, because it indi

to her, and thruit It into a sacred, se
cret place within her shirtwaist.
Mrs. Spotswood, filled with the fine
excitement of the matron who Is cer
tain that romance 1b working in her
neighborhood, was devoured by that
modification of the spirit of the chase
which sends the ladies, rich or poor,
good or bad, upon the scent of such
elusive news with all the zest of sports
men after squirrels or elephants. She
was inclined toward worry in regard
to Joneeville's fate and also inclined
to confidence In it because she had
known Broadway 6ince he was a little
hoy (ah, what errors have good women
made because they have known some
one since he was a little boy!) and
I knew that while he might be "wild" he
i was not wicked, for his baby curls had
been so sweet; pleased beyond ex
pression by the deep Impression which
her own delicious Clara had made up
on Broadway's affluent, well-mannered,
1 plainly competent friend—animated by
j these various emotions and not less
; than twenty others which I have not
j mentioned. Mrs. .Spotswood wore a
fluttering smile as she accepted her
1 baby-mastodonic son's infant fog-whis
l Ue invitation.
| "Good morning, Josie."
Josie smiled at her, although she
had regretted her arrival almost aB
much as Broadway had. She had so
wished to read the words upon the ho
tel letter paper which her new em
plover had spent half the night in
Mrs. Spotswood's smile expanded till
it fairly beamed at Josie before she
turned her eyes to Broadway, and then
she started with surprise. It was be
cause she had been certain he was
there that sho had come; a visit from
her to the factory was an unheard-of
thing; she had distinctly heard his
voice as she had passed outside the
open door, but now her deep astonish
ment because he was within the room
seemed almost overwhelming.
"Oh, hello, Broadway!"
He smiled nervously and hurried for
ward. Things had not gone as he had
wished, but he was not resentful. Nev
er had he been so humble. Had he
not, the night before, defaced that pa
per with the tale of his humility and
the details of his good resolves? Be
sides, had not Mrs. Spotawood guard
ed him in childhood against wrath at
home on more than one occasion, and
had she not, the previous evening, with
the understanding and good humor of
an angel, prepared for him that lemon
ade which held the magic touch for
which his system yearned?
"I'm awfully glad to see you here in
the plant," she earnestly assured him,
and meant every word of it. Then:
"Did you have a good night's sleep?"
Even the question was a nervous
shock, but he smiled bravely, although
he shuddered slightly as he asked in
answer, "How do I look?"
"Grand!" she exclaimed.
Now his shudder was not slight.
"Don't mention the name, please."
"You must come to our house to sup
"Believe me, I shall be glad to get
it," he said fervently.
Now her soul paid tribute to that
subtle hint of romance which waa in
the air. "You, too, Josle."
"Oh, thanks, Mrs. Spotswood."
"Is the Judge here?"
She knew perfectly well that he waa
not; she had seen him through the
window of his little one-roomed, peak
roofed office building Just across the
street as she had turned Into the
graveled, flower-lined path which led
to the works' entrance.
"I thought he might be here. We've
been er—shopping, and were going
by, so I thought I would run In and
have a word with him."
_ Even Mrs. Spolspood did not shoo
cates that women are at last begin
ning to show common sense Instead
of hysteria In sentimental matters
and to discover that life has a few
other things besides love In It.
The enlightened attitude toward
love which men have always held is
being slowly but surely acccepted by
women. This Is that, while love is
the ornament of existence, it is by no
means the whole shooting match.
Up to our grandmother's time It
was the proper thing for a young
maiden who had been disappointed
in love to pine away and die of a
broken heart, or, if she happened to
have too strong a constitution for
even morbid sentiment to kill her, to
go through the world with the Bad,
sweet smile of a blighted being.
But you never hear of anybody dy
ing of a broken heart in these days,
and instead of being blighted, a girl
who is jilted gathers up the warmest
of her love letters and takes them
into the breach of promise court.
In our mother's time it was es
teemed absolutely necessary to a
woman's happiness for her to be
loved, and in consequence the old
maids who had been passed over
by Oupld were pitied as bank
rupts in life. Now. while we still
recognize that love is the crown of
existence, we know that a woman may
be exceedingly happy and jolly and
comfortable without it. and so nobody
is wasting any tears on spinsters.
Many n Wife Would Be Willing to
<}ITC Her Husband Away
Up to this present moment there
has been a tradition that no matter
how lazy, and trifling, and drunken,
and disagreeable a husband was, if
he deserted his wife she should be
moan her lot in sackcloth and ashes,
instead of getting up and rejoicing
that she was rid of a loafer that she
had to support or a brute that beat
The truth is that many a wife, in
stead of being broken-hearted at los
ing a husband, would be perfectly
willing to hand him over to any other
woman that would take him. Ifence,
perhaps, the philosophy with which
the wife of the recreant husband
meets his side stepping.
thus early in the morning, save for
groceries; moreover, she did not wear
her best black silk dress when she
went shopping for her groceries, and
the shopping district occupied the re
gion farthest from the works upon
the other side of her own home—but
these things did not matter.
Then, as she saw Broadway's atten
tion wavering, and that Clara was en
deavoring to hold it long enough to
ask for Wallace, she turned beamingly
to him, although behind the beam
there was a genuine anxiety. "Any
thing new, Broadway?"
Clara's courage had augmented by
that time, and she gave him insuffi
cient time to frame an answer, so Mrs.
Spotswood went to Josie, and, as
Broadway answered questions about
Wallace, assuring Clara that he'd be
there before long, out of the corner of
his eye he could make certain that
Josie was explaining things to Mrs.
Spotswood. He rather thought and
hoped that she was explaining them
with real enthusiasm.
Clara was shyly excited over Wal
lace, and took full advantage of this
chance to talk of him with his best
friend. The long standing of her
friendship for Broadway made her feel
at liberty to gossip freely.
'1 think Mr. Wallace is an awfully
nice fellow," she said gravely.
"Do you really?" Broadway smiled
at her although he bitterly resented
her Intrusion on his talk with Josie.
"I'll tell him you said that," he gaily
"He is," she stated positively. "He
ordered ice cream twice last night" A
reminiscent hunger came into her
eyes. "Bought me a box of chocolates,
"Oh, he doesn't care what he does
with his money." Broadway's manner
indicated that asking twice for Ice
cream and the purchase of a box of
chocolates represented to his mind the
extreme Insanity of spendo-mania.
"Doesn't he?" she asked, her tone In
dicating that delightful horror which
unmarried ladies feel at hearing of the
exploits of equally unmarried, possibly
eligible young men.
"No," said Broadway, with the sir
of one revealing something at oacb
horrible and fascinating, "he spent
over twenty-five dollars one night."
His audience was as vividly im
pressed as any speaker could have
wished. "He must have just thrown it
But the mad tale of Wallace's ex
penditures was never told. The con
versation was at this point interrupt
ed by the sound of cheers in the great
workrooms at the back.
Hlggins, erratic, demagogic, often
vicious tempered, was, when once his
championship had been enlisted, an en
thusiastic advocate. As he himself had
said, his heart was "In the right place,"
and that morning, as he went through
the plant explaining that the young
new owner had decided not to seU out
to the trust, but would stand by Jones
ville, Jones' Pepsin gum and those res
ident in one and employed in manufac
ture of the other, Broadway lost none
of merit through his declamation.
In that heart In the right place Hig
gins had admired the way the smallish
city man had stood up to his five feet
ten of brawn and threatened to throw
him out of the building, discharge him
from the plant, and drive him from the
town if he did not cease threatening a
woman. He was sorry he had lost his
temper while with Josie.

there being shirring at the slightly raised
waist line. Scarcely a prettier effect
could be suggested yet it is obtained at
the minimum of labor. Challis, albatross
