Few great men bare paid more en
thusiastic tributes to tbeir wires than
Tom Hood, and probably few wives
have better deserved such homage, says
the Chicago ' Chronicle. "You will
think." be wrote to ber in one of his
letters, "that 1 am more foolish than
any boy lover, and 1 plead guilty, for
never was a wooer so young of heart
and so steered in love as I. but it is a
love sanctified and strengthened by
lone rears of experience. Sisy God
ever bless my darling; "the sweetest.
most helpful, angel who ever stoopeu
to bless a man!" Has tncre ever, we
wonder. Uved a wife to whom a more
delicate and beautiful tribute was paid
than those verses of which tne burden
la, MI love thee, 1 love thee; 'tis all that
I can say?'
WI want thee much." Nathaniel uaw
therne wrote to hut wife many years
after Ids long patience bad won for
him the flower "that was lent from
neavea to show the possibilities of the
haman soul." Thou art the only per
son la the world that ever was neces
sary to me, and now I am only myself
When thos art within my reach. Thou
art aa unspeakably beloved woman."
Sophia Hawthorne was little better
than a chroalc invalid, and It may be
that this physical weakness woke all
the deep chivalry ana tenderness ox ine
maa. And be reaped a rich reward for
an almost unrivaled devotion in the
''atmosphere of love and happiness and
taspiratioa" with which his delicate
wife alwaya surrounded him.
The wedded life of Wordsworth with
bis cousin, "the phantom of delight,"
was a poem more exquisitely beautiful
thaa any his pen ever wrote. Mrs.
Wordsworth was never fair to look
upon, but she bad that priceless and
rarer beauty of soul which msde ber
life "a ceater of sweetness" to all
around ber. "All that she baa beea ta
me." the -poet- once said to his hitter
days, "none but God aad myself can
aver know." and it-would be difficult
to tnd a mora touching and beautiful
picture In the gallery of great men's
lives than that of woroswortn ana nts
wife, bath bowed under the burden of
many years and almost blind, "walking
band ta liana togetner in ine gurueu,
with all the blissful absorption and
tender confldence of youthful lovers.
It never needed "the welding toacn
of a great' sorrow" to make the lives
of Archbishop Talt and his devoted
wife a perfect whole." Speaking of
her many years after she bad been
taken from him. be said. "To part from
her. If only for a day, was a pain only
leas intense tnan tne pleasures wtin
which I returned to her. and when I
took ber with me It was one of tbe
purest joys,gtven to a man to watch
tbe meetlng'betweea her and our chll
dren.M When David Livingstone had passed
bis thirtieth birthday, with barely a
