Provincial society invariably sets
great store by tho domestic man, he
being regarded as the Ideal husband
and father. Pressed to define the
special virtues of their paragon, his
admirers usually find nothing more to
say In his behalf than that, he Is not
dissipated; observation of tho domestic
man also fnlls to discover that he Is

conceded tho lion's share of whatever

quiet, or rest, or convenience, or un
disturbed enjoyment of such mild di
version as reading tho evening paper.
The usual variety of domestic man
concerns himself no moro with con
tributing to tho entertainment of the
homo than If ho wore a stranger. To
bo sure, at intervals ho accompanies
his wife to church sociables or goes
along with her somowhat unwillingly
to call upon acquaintances, but ho at
no time feels It Incumbent upon him
to becomo tho Instigator and prime
executive pf nmusonipnts In tho hoino;
nor do tho exertions of domestic llfo
nppral to him ns a duty he should
share, In tho evening with his wlfo nnd
the other members of the family. His
position, which Is acquiesced in by tho
memhors of tho household, Is that his
efforts at brcadwlnhing outside earn
for him exemptions from the labors
and self-denials of tho home. Ho Is,
therefore, ns a rulo, merely a negative
quantity, unless ho happens to bo a
person of irascibility, when, to be sure,
ho is a positive nuisance.
