the Social Arbiter?
By J. Saxe Dua Bue.
tiIE question whether man shall resign to woman the infils-
tive in making propomix of marriage i just now agitatiog
the mind feminine and finding expression in the solumbe of
the dally press. The turden of their oplsions is that women
shall propose. Bur it so happens that they are not the arbt
ters of such matters, amd hat consequently the world wilt
Crontinge to wag along in the same old way and mas coutiope
ta propowe While womin disposes still
There {8 5 feature of this discussion that Ix worth a passing potion, even
{2 the discussion teed! is trivial and We. It is this:
While women may discuss such questions pro and con. man is tie social
arbiter, and pon kar alome will depend the solution of this and similar
problems, Writing from the standpoint of a man, I hardly beliece that
man's mind Is about th undergo such a revolution as to permit him to allow
woman to usurp this time-honored and reasonable prerogative.
Difenlt an it may be for some men to sorew thes couraze up to the
proposing pitch, once they conclode that the enly oliss for them is the cop.
fugal bliss, they feel that it Is a game worth .usny times the candle. and
they will continge to bold it a4 ote of thelr rights: and the woman who
preaches that woman should propose will find probably to her WITOW,
that she will pot make a brilliant success if she endeavors to practios what
she preaches, apd that on the other hand the preaching of such nonsense
puts ber farther from being proposed to by the sort of man a woman might
desire to win than she ever was before.
What is so attractive in woman as a sweet, retiring disposition; ons that
waits to be courted, oue that keeps her lily sweetness to herself until she is
won by the attentions of some worthy man? Do not men intinitely prefer
8 woman with sueb a disposition to ene why spots some man out for her
prey and then sets out to catch him?
Do we want a race io the future where the man looks after the babies
and the household affairs while the wife goes to the club and foafs about
the hotel and such? Ilo we want a raew that fs the Incarnation of the funny
man's idea of the new woman and her twentieth century “hubby? Then,
give us women who propose and it will come to that
On the other band if we want wives wy can love, admire and respect;
wires who can rule ax the presiding genius of the sacred precincts of the
home; wives who we can feel are to be protected from the cruelties of life:
wives who command ull the gallantry and knightly devotion that are in us,
let us still choose the dear mortal ‘whe dispesss rather than aer sister whe
insists ou proposing.
