Two Hindu of Wives.
Kansas ( Jitv Times : When a man loves
a woman well enough to marry her , and
he ought to have a love that will last
after death to do thatwhy iloes ho marry
her ? Tor peace , a home , a shelter , a
refuge , a plaee where ho can get away
from the world , a place where he can
keep Ins idols nnd household gods. On
the outside life's battle may be stern and
cruel. Uo can light that bravely if ,
through its greatest stress and torment ,
he can still .see a light shining in the windows
dews of his home , Blows may bo heavy
ami wounds deep and painfttli but after
the struggle the rest , and after the scor
ing of the llesli the balm in liilead.
( the picture and marry a vvo-
inan who will not make a home. She
must be eternally on the wing. At times
about the premises there may be seen u
form somewhat familiar , yet all but in
tangible , and there may bo heard the
noise of familiar pinions wiiiali arc yet
all but invisible , and the humming-bird
is oil'and avay again , no llowcrs in its
homo rare enough or fragrant enough to
tempt it to alight , to build its
Suppose , again , a man has married a
woman who has lured him to his destiny
because she was puremodest ; , cultivated ,
ri'lined , in his eyes a perfect female. She
is liis against tlio universe , lie wants
her. Tlie possession must bo absolute
and unquestioned. None of the graces ,
the pleasures , or the obligations of what
is known as society need to be put away
or abandoned for a single moment. The
only stipulation that the man makes is
for a home , for his wife to be mistress of
that homo , and for his own inexorable
possession of that mistress and that
How then , must ho feel when ono day
ho awakens to the realization of the fact
that the woman of his idolatry is about
to become an actress. That the modesty
which once shrunk timidly from the bash
ful ardor of his own wooing is about to
face with a brazen stare the hateful
shimmer of tlio footlights. That tint
cheek which once burnt red under a single
caress is about to bo slobbered over by
professional lechers. That the lips that
had told him of her love in the spit hush
of the twilight were to have lips laid
upon them that never made a vow of
passion that was not broken , nor plighted
faith to a confiding woman that did not
wreck her lifo bv wrecking her chastity.
That the form which once to him was all
that he hud imagined of the grace and
poetry ot motion was to be girt about by
other arms and find rest and content
ment upon other bosoms.
What if it is all acting , and slmultation
and make-bcliovu. did the man marry
the woman to get only acting , and situ-
ultatlou nnd make-believe ? It is the
contamination which kills him to the
soul. It is tlio fondling , the kissing , tliu
caressing , the slobbering whicli
makes the farce so horrible to
him. It Is the bosom barn to the breasts
which makes him shudder as one is sup
posed to shudder when somebody treads
upon the spot where ho is to bo buried.
It is the exposure of person whicli puts
the indescribable charm of modesty to
death , and puts in the place of the ono
holy and idolatrous love of his lifetime , a
painted , rouged , furbelowcd , and bed
izened thing , running hither and thither
at tliu cull of this or that manager , sot
upon bv libertines , conned over
by insufferable puppies , perse
cuted with indccp.nt proposals ,
besought for interviews and
assignations in the name of everything
which goes to niako up. the humanizing
inllucnccs of homo and the tranquil and
sustaining pleasures of married life , what
is a man to do under sued circumstances
except to subjugate his wife or quit Her.
In the old days in Rome if she had not
listened to and oboved her husband she
would have been killed. A little touch
of the steel oven now might not bo a bad
transaction. If the family is to continue
in the future as it has been in the past-
tin ) bulwark of liberty and the adamantine
foundation of the State more power
ought to be given to the head of it. In
the days when giants were , the wives
were homo women and perfectly obedi
ent. One wouid no morovhavo thought
of aspiring to any public position with
out her husband's consent , much less of
becoming an actress , than she would
have thought of strangling her sleeping
first born in its cradle. It is now time
for old things to become new again.
How Koino Wives are Wood nnct Won.
Marriages arc often the result of acci
dent. It seems strange , but the most
prudent persons will sometimes conceive
an irrcslstablo attachment at the sugges
tion of a word or a loots' . When once
under the spell of the verb "To love , "
they go through all the forms and linisli
the declension of the verb before the
altar. The few may give the subject the
consideration it deserves , but the many ,
there is. reason to fear , are guided by
A skipper of a coasting vessel called
at the village inn and asked the landlady ,
a young widow : "Do you know where
I can got a mate ? 1 have lost my raato. '
" 1m for Mr. " she said
sorry you , . , ,
smiling. " 1 want a mate too , and can
not get one. As wo arc in the same posi
tion , I'll toll you what I'll do ; If you'll
bo mine I'll bo yours. " Ho closed with
the bargain , ana the widow keeping to
her word , ho is now supplied with two
A young man at a church bazaar was
button-holed bv a lady , she would not
let him go until ho had bought something ,
lie looked at her stall , which contained
fancy work of various kinds. "Why. "
ho said , "I see nothing hero that would
be of the least use to mo , a bachelor , ex
cept yourself. "Tho rest would bo dear
to niu at any price. "
"I will bo cheap enough , " she said
"If you could bo dear enough , per
haps "
"O , como ! you are just the person I
want , " taking him by the arm.
She sold him one article after another ,
keeping up an agreeable .conversation ,
the while , and before all was done ho
had purchased everything on the stall.
Then , at settling up , there was some-
tiling said about discount. "I cannot re
turn any money , " she said blushing , "but
if you think mo dear enough , there's
minima ; she may give you my band. "
Tht ) bargain was accordingly concluded ,
An eminent doctor , who had saved the
k lifo of a lady , 'A personal frieud , was
asked his charge , Ho said ho generally
allowed his patient friends to remunerate
him us they thought befitting.
"Hut don't you often get disappointed
on these terms ) " she inquired.
" 1 may say , never. "
"A3 you are so easily pleased , here , "
and she playfully gave hint her empty
hand , while In the other was concealed a
check for a handsome sum. "How easily
I could have taken you iu , " she addeu ,
producing the check.
"Hut you have only succeeded in draw
ing me out , " ho said , declining to relin
quish her hand. "Don't insult mo with a
cheek ; 1 am most generously rewarded. "
Perhaps she understood the doctor's
dlllicitlt.v and wished to help him out of
it ; at any rate the giving of her hand led
him to oiler his heart.

ho replied , gallantly.
The ice having been broken , they en

each others friends. The rest was plain
sailing into what somebody calls "tho

a fancy to a valuable ring which slip saw

tempt you ? "
"Mo other liguro than the figure before
me , " lie said giving her an admiring
Jook at the same time. "It is exceed
ingly lovely I wisli 1 could tempt you
with the ring. "
"I think 1M1 take it , " she said , laying
down tlio money amidst blushes. Ot

"Aro you married yet , Kitty ? " said a
sailor on meeting an old acquaintance
after returning trom a long voyage.
"No ; that somebody has never come. "
"Ah , then , I have brought him after a
deal of bother , " ho said , throwing his
arms around her ; and the matter was
there and then settled.
This was ingenious enough , like the
case of the theatrical manager who was
brought to tiio point when ho called to
inform his leading actress he had
secured a play at last which was sure to
have a long run.

me ? " she asked.
"You are to be a charming sweetheart ,
as you are. "

"There is. "

Early Bliss of a Hnlvatlon Marriage.
London Observer : At the marriage of
the Marcchalo Catherine. General Uooth's
daughter , to Colonel Clibborn at the Sal
vation army barracks in London there
was u curious scone. The young" woman ,
tall and excitable , as well as a comely
creature , as soon as the marriage was
over , sung a song , of which one line was
not very encouraging to the newly-mar
ried husband , Tlio line was : ' 'We'll
light and never tire , " and to illustrate
her meaning in worldly fashion she
squared oil'at her husband in true pugi
listic shape , dodging her bead and shift
ing her ground , and with much spirit she
battered him about considerably. The
immense crowd screamed.and shouted.
It was too much for the excitable nature
of General Booth. Ho dragged out his
vonornblo spouse , and they sparred right
merrily at each other. When that tired
them both couples began a frenzied
breakdown , hanging on each other's
What a Thrifty Wife Can Do.
A young married man sends his finan
cial experience to the boston Record.
He says : "When i was married it was
several years ago I was in receipt of a
comfortable income , for a young man.
and wo went to housekeeping in very
good stylo. I had saved up about $1,200
and furnished my house with it hand
somely. I Paul $30 a month ront. Wo
lived in a fashionable quarter of the
city and traded at a market aud grocery
near by. Paid cash for all purchases. I
kept a little cash-book for the first year.
Wo had a great deal of company at first.
The beefsteaks , chops , roast boot , and
fowl wore frequent visitors. 1 bought
closely and wo were careful and prud
ent. Never an ounce of food was wasted.
At the close of the lirst year'I reck
oned UD my expenditures for the table
and struck an average. I won't say I
was not astonished at the result , for I
was somewhat amazed to find that I had
spout an average ol only seventy-eight
cents a day throujjhought the year.
That is $5.40 per wcok. Rents and pro
visions are much cheaper now. 1 will
admit I cannot sco why. with a thrifty
wife , a mau cannot got along with $15 a

A foreign correspondent tells the follow

board , tlio younger son of a lord , who may bo
said to represent a type ot husband much
sought after In certain limited circles In the
United States. This Englishman married ,
several months ao , the daushtor of a
wealthy lioston gentleman. Ho spundi
three months every year in Boston with his
wife and the other nlno months In England
alone. Ho has never taken his wife over

Uonorally speaking , the Japanese men
make kind and. affectionate husbands , and
the women make virtuous ana exemplary
wives and mothers ; and tlio children nro
certainly the hnpplest little Imus In tliu
world ; their parents fondle and stwll them
most effectually , and at the same time never
lose their control over ttiem. says a writer In
the Itrooklvn Magazine. The husband has
absolute control over the person of his wlfo ;
at the same time , oae never sees a man
strike a woman In Japan ; yet them is con
siderable pinching and slapping done on oc
casions when those strange and ungovern
able spoils of exasperating ugllntss known
as tantrums settle down upon their matrimonial
menial horizon. On these occasions there Is
considerable free hitting , bltloe and scratch
ing indulged In on both sides of the house ,
but the greater strength of the husband In
variably leaves him master of the situation ,
and the belligerent household speedily re
sumes its seroae and happy course.

Chang and Hug were raised up to meet

they were there to meet it. They came
at a time when the world was clamoring
