I sound argument against the introduc
tion of general education, and in the
republic of reason and matrimony the
jrencral aent of husbands can not con-
elude the rights of wives.
In a matrimonial difference some
one must decide. Granted: and what
should determine the decision? i'lam
ly. the right of the case. Now a wife
is quite as likely upon the whole, in
deed, more likely to be right upon a
i family question than the husband.

reason disappears when the woman is
the bread-winner, and. in that case, it
lis plainly not as a man that thc hus

xerelv masculine pretension. The
JLHther reason, that he can enforce his

deduction from the theory of the right
