The right remedy for tbe divorce
evil, according to a writer In the
Arena, lies In tbe prevention of un
happy marriages. Certainly this Is
simple and direct In theory. In prac
tice It might be difficult. A rule and
compass method or determining
whether parties are suitable to each
olher will hardly give satisfaction.
Efforts have been made by several
States to legally restrain the physic
ally and morally unfit from marrying,
but that Is another matter. True,
there Is a sort of Immorality at the
basis of most divorces. Hut It Is gen
erally an Immorality that lies deep lu
the temperament and does not appear
on tbe surface until after marriage.
Tbe Arena writer's remedy Is "to place
barriers against easy matrimony and
make marriage a bulwark of sincere

Churches and denominations are realising that the situa

made lu overcoming the setit'inent which has been grow

place for Mich ns they. The ultimate result of these ef
forts to reunite the straggling elements will have a greater
effect on church and society than most persons anticipate.
