with a brief intermlaalon. continued until
the middie of September.
Wednesday. September 7. ISH. was a day
very similar to the emraorable one of
a century before. A a trance, rreenirh yel
low pall overspread the heavens, and so
darkened the lirfat of the sun that lamps
and gas wera lighted, schools and factories
closed, and multitudes of the ignorant and
sujienstitious believed that the day of judg
ment had come.
The montha of June and July. iwc. were
otably oppressive in their atmosphere. On
the 03th of July eighty-icht children in
New York City died from the effects of
the heat. Car horses fell in their tracks;
drivers dropped from their seats on trucks
and wagona. Seven hundred and seventy,
alna little ones died during this period
from diseases superinduced by the boat. .
Coming down to later years we' all re
member tba terrible soell ef .August,, lgufi,
when for a period of five days- the ther
mometer ever the entire eotn try . ranged
from M to MX degrees. Hundreds in the
various cities died from sunBtroke and the
mortality among infants and. young chil
dren was anoaJllnr.

monial Question where things begin to go
wrong, I should put mine at the place
where the man gets wise te the fact that he
is not up to lua wife's ideal. I tell you
that I believe more than half of the un
happy marriages come from Just that You
tee the girl Is determined to see the best
of the man during the courtship. Fhe really
and truly loves him or ahe wants to get
married. Both feelings make her enthuse
over his kindness, praise his generosity, ai
prove his principles. 1 don't think a man
is to blame for getting the impression that
he is all to the hollyhocks! Girls are such
infernally clever actresses that they can
make us believe anything! And. of courss.
a norm ai human male is not needing any
very rreet shove to believe the beet ef him
self. It's because the girl does believe in
him that ha thinks she is the ens woman.
And it's because she lets him see that she
has tn eye on his faults all the tiros he
thought she was observing hie virtues that
he wtll. be pretty apt to remember there
are other women." '
"To remember?" I questioned.
"Tea, Juet that. You see. he cboee th one
he married out of all the bunch h natur

was the on for him. And th reason he
thought sli was tba en was because she
seemed to see his good joints and love
him for them. That is what counts for
him. .Then, of course, when she begms to
