THE MARRIAGE OF COLLEGE GIRLS.
Miss Abbott has compiled statistics which show
that but few of the graduates of Vassar marry, and
that perpetuation of Vassar traditions in the second
feneration is imperiled by the fact that in the fam
flies of such as do marry the children average only
ne and one-half. ' ."
Perhaps those who assume that a college educa
tion indisposes women to domestic duties and makes
them averse to marriage go too far, says the Call
In spite of all the instructions of prudence end
pawkishness, romance is the leading element in mnr
riage. But romance, with its rainbow and bloom,
its enthusiasm and optimism, its disregard of butter
and of bread, has its period of adoleseense and de
cline.' If the years of romance be passed by women
in the seclusion of college life, and its knock at the
door of the heart be unheard in the ambitious and
scholastic interests of the classroom, the rainbow
Tision seldom comes again.
The prince on a white horse is not seen by the
eye of fancy, and man is looked upon in his natural
shape as a rather uninteresting animal, who feeds
like an ox, and smokes and chews, sometimes drinks,
and seems to have his pleasures in wading to his
girthy-middle in trout streams, or in gunning for
game. All things have their time, and if the time
of romance lie spent in the workaday occupations
of college, in learning the relations of the hypo
tenuse to the other side or. a triangle and m gazing
through a telescope at the twinkling stars and stead'
fast planets, the incentive to marriage has no ex.
istence, and the bachelor maid, panoplied by her
parchment, goes forth not fancy free even, for she
has no fancy. She is a matter-of-fact person, not
lubject to illusions.
But what of man ! Poor devil, you may tie him
to a whirling wheel, immerse him in business, or boil
him in oil, and you cannot kill romance in him. It
disturbs his dreams before he is 20 and it flashes
like the aurora borealis in his winter skies when he
is 80. In his case neither age nor occupation can
safeguard him against it. If he isn't watched and
tended he will run off and get married w hen he has
lost all his teeth and all his hair. A college educa
tion does not cure him. No education at all does not
impair the iridescent vision. Jack will idolize Jill,
and Darby will invest Joan with sweet and angelic
attributes, world without end.
' If all the ladies choose to indurate the romantic
spot in their hearts by going to college, man will
lose his interest in life and pine and die. Then
what will Vassar do!
THE FAR EASTERN SITUATION.
A month elapsed after Liao Yang liefore Field
Marshal Oyama moved on Mukden. A month slips
by since the terrible battles from the Yen Tai mines
to the Shakhe river and the Japanese have not taken
the offensive. Kuropatkin is in no position, at pres
ent, to move. Theft have lut'ii changes in his staff
of lieutenants and generals, and until Linevitch and
Gripponborg get to the front, the Russian command-er-in-ehiof
will hardly become belligerent. The de-j
partutv of Viceroy AlexietT, tot), has left Russiau
affairs in Manchuria in chaos, so far as civil ad
ministration is concerned.
Interest in the campaign, there fore, centers on Port
Arthur. If Oyama can take that city he will have
80,000 men to add to his forces in front of Mukden,
or a like number to swann into Korea and no lay out
that country that Russian invasions from Vladivo
stok next spring will be made donbly hnrd. But
Port Arthur persistently stands. Should Stoessol
hold out a month, even though he should ultimately
be forced to surrender, the magnificent demonstra
tion his defense of Port Arthur has made in the
Japanese rear can not fail to have boon of the ut
. a i i i i k . at at at.
mosi importance, uaa rori annur iaiien after a
siege of two, or even three, months, the forces added
to Oyouia's armies by the release of the besiegers
might probably have so turned the scale at Mukden
that Kuropatkin would have been driven out of
Manchuria early in the campaign.
Further important operations this winter, there
fore, appear unlikely, although the forces in front
of Mukden are in close touch and St. Petersburg
expects Oyama to take the offensive at any moment.
t remains to be seen whether the commissary force
of either side is sufficient to enable the armies to
drag stores over the snow and through the mud.
There Is little hope of Oyama being able to roll up
Kuropatkin now, even though the mikado's men
gain a decided victory. The best Oyama could do
would be to push Kuorpatkin out of Manchuria am
that would have little bearing on the spring cam
paign next year.

POSSIBILITIES OF DAIRYING. (.
. Fifteen carloads of condensed milk comprised
an e shipment made from the farms of the White
river valley to a distributing agent in Seattle a
few days ago, says the Post-Intelligencer. The train
tarried 7,500 cases of prepared milk from the con-
deasary at Kent. It was estimated to have a valua
tion of $30,000 or more, while in the hands of the
wholesalers. This great quantity of cream repre-
lented only a part of the output from dairy farms
m the past 30 days. A conservative estimate places
the actual milk handled in that valley at one carload
Five years ago the condesary could not get
enough cream to keep a small force of workmen
employed. Now an army of men and women has
jtcady employment, and the condensing machinery
is kept running day and night. The farmers have
engaged more generally in the work of dairying.
They are accumulating property every day in the
year. Their credit is good everywhere. :There is no
bnger any question about spending money for the
family purposes. The children are better clothed
and more satisfied with life in 'the country. J
! The possibilities of dairying in the Puget sound
country have not been approximated. Those en
gaging in the business have simply opened the way
for thousands of others who may follow in the foot
steps to future prosperity. . The conditions of climate
and soil prodctions are so favorable that no section
of the world offers greater inducements for those
seeking dairy field. The meadows are perpetual

MISS KELLER'S EXAMPLE. ,
Perhaps you were born poor and had to begin
life without an education at an age when you should
have been at school; maybe from the beginning there
were responsibilities forced upon you that worked
against your progress. You feel that you were handi
capped in the race and are inclined to blame fat
that you are not greater, or wiser, or richer than
If this is your attitude, there is a lesson for you

This girl was born with disadvantages beside
which the hadicajis that move so many men and
women to self-pity seem trivial and unworthy of con

of the most wonderful teacher in the world she
broke from the prison to which it seemed she had
been condemned broke the double bars of silence
and darkness and took her place among the useful,
compentent men and women of her time.

and cursing your luck think of what Helen Keller

NEW YORK IN 1920.
Greater New York will have a population of 6,
191,250 in 1920, according to a sober prediction
made by an engineer of national reputation. By the
figures on which he bases his estimate this mians
an increase in the population of the metropolis of
2,357,251 inhabitants. If one can imagine a mob
ster city as large as London with all its environs,
a eity capable of containing the combined popula
tions of Paris, Berlin, St. Petersburg, Dublin, Butto,
Mont, and Patterson, N J., or, to take another view,
a city with a population within 100,000 as large as
that of the state of Pennsylvania, or one as large
as the combined populations of Alabama, Indiana,
Wyoming, North Dakota and Hawaii, one may ob
tain an idea of the immensity expressed in these
seven figures. If we add to this the possibilities of
a serieg of wonderful transportation systems, uniting
almost within the hour New York and Philadelphia,
with its increased population of 2,000,000, into prac
tically one mighty municipality, with a chain of big
Jersey cities, like Jersey City with 450,000, Newark
with 400,000, Elizabeth with 150,000 and a score of
smaller places, we may have a vision of the future
more marvelous than the dreams of the most daring
