Effect of a Scarcity of Single Women,
A Nebraska correspondent of the Syra
cuse Standard writes as follows :
“There is lack of woman’s nursing,
There is dearth to woman’s tears.”
Certainly not, because they are unnec
essary in this Western region; but the
fact is, the women are scarce and tho
men are plenty. In market phrase, the
woman “demand far exceeds the supply.”
Those inexorable laws of supply and de
mand, about which political and other
economists delight to talk, have not cor
rected this acid question. A heavy dose
of girls—none of your homcepathlc pre
scriptions—is what Nebraska needs, and
the stomachs of the young men will al
ways remain sour until the supply comes.
You have no idpa East how anxious young
men in this region are to marry. In the
words of a prairie farmer, “courtin’s hot.”
The poor man is passing through a bit
ter experience. A party of us were duck
hunting tho other day on the Missouri
bottoms. Night overtook us before we
were aware of it, and we were obliged to
seek lodging at the first dwelling we
could find. It was a small one-story
-structure of three rooms, and occupied by
a family of six—father, mother, daughter •
and three sons. The sons were all un
married, and from the calls that were
made Afterwards, we judge the daughter
was unmarried also. We hadn’t been in
the house five minutes when some kind
of vehicle drove up and two young men
were ushered into the parlor. Straight
way the mother and daughter held a
whispered conversation, which closed
with an invitation to the sitting-room for
supper. It was evident the young men
callers had been to tea, as they staid in
the parlor ■with “sweet sixten.”
Scarcely had we taken our seats at the
table when a howl from the dogs outside
announced another comer. He seemed
to avoid the front door, and knocked at
that where our party was just sitting to
supper. The mother rose to answer the
summons, when we were surprised by tho
daughter opening the parlor door and
rushing forward» with “Don’t get up,
mother! It’s one of my fellows 1 Como
in, Jim ; how do you do ?”
And Jim entered in response to the
cheery salutation. He made himself as
comfortable as possible till we had finish
ed our supper, when another whispered
consultation proved that the “parlor is
as full as it ought to be,” whispered by
Miss in res])onse to some motherly sug
gestion. The old gentleman solved the
question by inviting us into the kitchen
to smoke. It was evident that Jim didn’t
smoke, for he remained in the sitting-
room. We should have doubtless en
joyed a quiet cigar, had not the old lady
opened the back door, and shouted at the
top of her voice: “Come round here to
the back door.”
It was another young man, and we
fancied he looked as if he had come in
rather late. Two young men within the
parlor, one in the sitting-room, and one
in the kitchen. What should l>e done?
The courting business was getting hot!
There was another talk between mother
and daughter. 11 was evident their devi
ces had been exhausted. The old gentle
man was called into the corner. He set
tled the question with a whisper: “I’ll
be damned if I’ll move agin till the sit-
tin’ room’s full!”
Into the sitting-room, went number
four, and we smoked. It was full ten
minutes before the next disturbers came,
and* they entered the kitchen with the
air of old acquaintances. We looked anx
iously at the host. Taking his pipe from
his mouth, a single sentence relieved us :
“Them’s the widowers ! Stick !”
And we “stuck” and smoked on. For
the next half hour the girl must have
been kept busy. The widowers had cer
tainly a third of her time. It was nine
o’clock. We wished to go to bed, and the
only bed we had discovered was in the
parlor. The old gentleman divined our
wishes, and said:
“I’m sorry, gentlemen ! But this is
one of the regular courtin’ nights! Them
two fellers in the parlor never leave afore
midnight, and the widowers alius stay
all night. And that ain’t the worst of it.
Dan’ll be here at ten o’clock! I and the
boys alius sleep in the haystack Friday
nights. Yer welcome to that I”
The parlor, sitting-room and kitchen
being full, we retreated to the haystack.
In response to a question on the point, the
old gentleman said that—
“Friday night it’s purty bad, but Sun
day it’s wuss. Last Sunday night there
was ten on’em, and the gal is gettin’ more
and more partikiler. The more she gets
the more she wants !”
On the haystack, with a stift’ breeze
driving away the mosquitoes, we heard
Dan driving up. One of the last remarks
of the old man before we fell asleep was,
“Yes, gentlemen, courtin's hot in Ne-
brasky !” .And we believed him.
