Maude Adams was one day discussing with her old negro "mammy" the approaching marriage of a friend.
"When is you gwine to git married, Miss Maudie?" asked the mammy, who took a deep interest in her talented young mistress.
"I don't know, mammy," answered the star. "I don't think I'll ever get married."
"Well," sighed mammy, in an attempt to be philosophical, "they do say ole maids is the happies' kind after they quits strugglin'."
