lute more in their wives they would he
better. Women kayo a liner aii more
exact $ ense of honor than viol ; their
ideas of right and wrong are not per
vetted by motives of expediency , and
sordid calodations are less apt to tnfn
mice their judgment ,
1Vhenever a thief or an enbezzkr is
brought to justice we generally read that
the Itiat's ivifo is { ) rostrated by the
knowledge of her husband's crime , This
coiichmsively shows that she was iu igno
ounce of his wrongdoing , and no one is
more astounded by the ehnmx than the
iyoumm whose name has been dishonored.
And it is et her the greatest blow falls ;
the pity of the world , of pity be extended
to her , is tempered by scorn , and , be she
ever so innocpnt , she never escapes a cer
tain amount of condemnation.
WOtlld Gray be now a corpse , or Eno s
fugitive , or 'iVard a convict , if they 118(1

1111(1 Gray gone to his wife and said : " 1
have taken money from any corporatiion
to specnlftte with , but I will repay it when
the market turns , " we think his wife
would have said : "I'ut it back ; make
restitution ; tell the directors , and we
will be just as happy without our carr
riage or our summer cottage. " A woman
instinctively shrinks from time thought of
wrongdoing. ' 1'ho man , u self.deluded
fool , easily persuades 111niself Hiatt the

1111(1 nu harm can be dote by his "ber
rowing" what lie needs. No such Jes.
nilical sophistry beguiles to a wife. She
knows it is a theft , and cannot be niailu
to see it iii any other light.
.Nov and tiler we hear of a nun falling
