thanks to the wise providence that cares
for the welfare of men and women, there
are a great many married folks who have
kept Cupid a prisoner In their heerta and

tention of ever departing. Of course, there
have been gray days, days when disposi

ana wars rife.. In many caaea there have
been big mletakee that called for big sac
rifices and all the forgiveness of which the
heart Ja capable. But the bright, days se
outbalanced tha gray onea that' for the
sake of the difference they forgive and go
on loving and serving. I ean only hope
that my doubtful friend will not pass on
her views to lomi girl to whom love's

at the envelope, "that I shall
write to my friend and ask her to begin

sweetly., "I happened to know that Gwen
