utterly in 1900. And with that the Haooa-Eastern nullum went to Omaha.

then one meets bo etout a joke, one breaks a rule and find
a place for it. Some Lack-brain wrote the Journal a letter
and asked sapiently: Why should men marry? The Jour
nal answered as follows: . ,
A man should marry because unmarried he is a left-hand glove with the
r ght-handglyve missing. Ue is a door without a bome. an empty birdVnest, a
Marker of responsibility, an exile from happiness self-expatriated, an icicle on the
eves or time. A man should marry because until he marries he is not a man at
all. Yon might Just as well ask why should a hen lay an egg. She should lay
an eg? because that is what she is for. Man is put here to marry and push along
tbe race. You don't suppose that nature would have troubled to create you for
.your own rake? You are just one of the little m.lestones on the road to civilcAtiou
and your first duty is to supply other little milestones to keep the good work go'
ing on. Kipling wrote: '.;' i
