No Old Maids

The unmarried woman who has passed the peach bloom and strawberry-lip stage of life is no longer called an old maid, but is denominated a "Bachelor Girl," a much better and more enphonious title. It is better to be a bachelor girl or even an old maid than to be the partner of a surley, drunken wife beater. (Source: Madisonville Hustler, Fri., May 3, 1895)
