NEVER NAG SOCIETY.
. A little while ago a " Bachelors' Glub, JJ with palatial headquarters, was iormod in Chicago. At fixed periods "a iist of its members who are anxious to jaarry is sent to the unmarried daughters of well-to-do people all over tho -iatates. . ( .Recently 30 bachelor girls of New
.York City formed themselves into a '£»elf-Government Girls' Club, every member having made a solemn vow to marry nor to become engaged for a, period of at least 12 months. . A number ot business men of Manhattan Island formed what' they called " The Divorce Club." - The yearly subscription was a heavy one, and only those men who wished to bo legally separated from their wives »verc eligible for membership. The secretary of this uniquo club promised that 75 per cent, of the subscriptions would be used to pay lawyers' fees-for members seeking divorce, and that-the rest of the money would be\ spent .in the purchase of a gold medal to be. presented to the judge who granted .-the most divorces during 12 calendar jnonths. A matrimonial club which has a good deal to recommend'it" is "The Never 3Jag Society," founded in New York
and presided over by Mrs El wood Colics. The members have formulated the following confession of faith:—((We believe a wife should have her husband's breakfast ready, no matter" v at -what time he is obliged to rise. We believe wo should be dressed neatly, -.by ■ the time he is up, for it is his break-fast-time impression of us that he car- • *r:s «ii tlay. We believe the wife "•should greet her husband with a kiss ■ when he rettirns in the evening, and not force him to take the initiative. We hellovo that husbands should be .encouraged to bring their bachelor friends to their homes —to make their homes their clubs."
