The Man Who Forgave
In Illinois Recently a Man Killed His Wife's Affinity Who
Sneered at Him Having Been Freed, the Man
Has Asked His Wife to Return All
Honor to Men and Women Who
Forgive and Try to Forget.
HV KLLA WHEIXKH WILCOX
Every diiy we reail of bad men who
neglect utiil maltreat koi'J women.
Kvery ay we Fee patient women bear
ing w..h unworthy men and forgiving
them all the sins
in the calendar.
Now and then we
hear of a good man
who forgives an

The wife became
Infatuated with an
other man, and the
only of the best re
sults for Ills er
ring wife, de
manded a promise
from the uffinlty
that he would mar
ry tho woman once
she was divorced.
The affinity refused and made snecr
AV hereupon the husband killed him.
Now, having been freed by the Jury,
according to the unwritten law, the hus
band has anked his wife to return to
him and go awuy and begin life over
under new conditions. ,
This man seems to feel the force of the
words he used on his wedding day, "To
take this woman for better or for worse
until deatli do us part.'
Ills love for her must have died a pain
ful death; but pity has taken Its place,
and a high seneo of duty.
The man feels reHponsiblo for the future
of the woman lie married, and Instead of
letting her go the downwurd path, while j
lie seeks happiness with some other bet
ter woman, he is standing by her side,
ready to guard and protect her to the end.
It is not iK3Hlble for two people to
know absolute romantic happiness after
a third person has Intruded upon their
When a man and woman set forth In
life as lovers and establish a marital
kingdom, where tho doves of peace and
the love blids build their nests among
green trees, good seiife. Judgment, un
selfishness and will must be stationed,
at Intervals, as caretaker, and the men
tal elghboards, "No Poaching," must be
made effective to all Idle loafers or thiev
ing trespassers who roam about thu
domuin. Kvery young couple starts out
in married life with un Idea that no
temptation, no danger, can assail them.
Their romantic love will render them
.Immune from danger.
Hut as the honeymoon wanes protect

Indulgence, the little panel of love, of
power and through the small doors enter
discord, danger and despair, unless the
caretakers are on guard, ready with gun
und sword to drive them off the domain
of peace and happiness.
There are few women so completely
and absorbingly In love with their hus
bands that they are Insensible to the ad
miration of other men; and few men
capable of a love so masterful that they
turn away unmoved when temptation
looks them In the eyes.
Hut there are many women, thank Clod,
and some men, w ho love enough and who
have sufficient common sense and good
taste to turn admiration Into respect, and
to say to temptation, "Get thee behind
me, satan," and so keep their own beau
tiful kingdom of romance free from de
And those men and women go down
the western slope of life together know
tng a happiness and a peace and a love
Impossible to be understood by those whb
have yielded to every passing whim of
the mind, to every call of the sense, to
each magnetic influence.
And only such know real happiness.
After there has been a trespasser on
te domain, after good sense, unselfish
ness or will has slept at the post of duty
and let in the poachers, life can never
again know the old white, strong, clear
light of perfect peace, perfect confidence,
But it can know calmness, freedom
from pain, and gratitude that the devas
tation was not greater.
So this man who has taken back his
wife will have many peaceful hours,
many moments of satisfaction that he
did no send his erring woman on a down
ward path alone; and so many women
who havo taken back faithless and un
kind husbands enjoy a pale second
honeymoon, basking1 In the dim light of
the depleted orb, glad that even that is
left to them.
And It all means experience, nnd Is all
a part of the character building for which
mortals are sent to earth.
And It Is wholly In accord with the
marriage vows, which men and women
take so thoughtlessly, and so frequently
violate when the times comes to "carry
out the promise of taking this man, or
woman, "for worse" Instead of "better."
All honor to the men and women who
forgive and try to forget! And all sym
pathy for them, since It Is the law that

ly TIIOMAM TAI'PLIt.
On Aunust 7, 1911, (hero died at Graz,
Austria, a mun who wo essentially groat,
true to himself and to hi culling.
HI name was Max Do I.lpman. He
vu by birth a Imron. but be preferred
not K) use the title, und to live a'.uong
hi associates us a mun succcsfcful In
his culling. He was the foremost news
paper Illustrator In the United Mates,
when, in lxtti, he v. us stilcUen with
Headers recall tills artist's work; that
ho producud with his creative bruin und
his right hand.
Then he becuine paralyzed, his speech
was affected, und his right hund and uim
became usclu. What did he do V
He patiently set himself to work to
study di awing ugain with his left hund.
THi tusk, this golnij ,0 school to mus
ter the other side of his body, while try
ing to adjust himself to life with half his
body stricken with uselessness, took
eighteen month. Then he went back to
bis desk again.
I'p to the time of his death he worked
tttlli the same enthusiasm that Hindu htm
dotermlned to conquer his left hand. It
is said of him that he made pen aud Ink
sketches of more men In public life thun
any other living urulst.
It is often Impressive to resd whnt men
do In affliction. Such stories always
move us. W'u are apt to think tliul they
belong to other days. But here Is u case
that In recent days was going right on
hue among us. Mux De Upmun, from
the day of his physical misfortune In IMS,
wus solving u difficult a task as falls to
Hlr Walter Hi-olt hud to face It when,
with body broken In health, he under
took to wipe oft an Indebtedness of hun
dreds of thousand of dollar with bis
power of Imagination. Beethoven, abso
lutely deaf for a quarter of a century,
went on undaunted writing tho music
that he could not hear save In the Imagi
nation that gave It birth.
Laura Brldgman, deprived of nearly
all her senses, rose to conquer her limi
tation to such an extent that her case,
like that of Helen Kellar of today, be
came knowu the world over. No writing
of Cbarle Dlcken la more Interesting
than Is that chapter In his American
Notes that relate his Impression of
Mis Hiidgmun's attainment,
It Is a wonderful privilege to have a
body finely uttuned, In splendid condi
tion, cupabia of responding to any de
mand wo make on It, But we must al
ways remember thut back of tho body
there Is tha mind, reudy and capable of
speal.lug lis message, even though the
body .n which it has depended Is sud
denly bruised und broken.
Men who face affliction and rise su
perior to It ure they who rcallxa the
supremury of tho mind. If one cylinder
of their englnu breaks down In mid ocean
they proceed to come In slowly under re
Hut they como ill.
First It la easy to learn to depend on
culMdo helps, aud to overlook the nUnd
power thut Is the one real thing.
Max Du Uipumu kept his Ullo of baron
hidden, und offered himself to the world
on tho Lusts of his genius and attainment
us an arllbt.
Second-It is easy when affliction, over
tukec us to sit down In the wreck of our
own body and give up, losing sight of tha
very power that make ttie body act
namely, the power of the mind.
Max De J.lpmtui did not recognize hi
affliction, except ra far us to find In It
un liisplratluu. An iiispiiullou to throw
it aside, to lorget it, to sit down pati
enlly und to begin once more, steadily
teaching the left hand that degree of
skill und cunning thut affliction had for
ever taken away from his wonderful right
Third The billboards scattered over the
field ot America teach us a bad lesson.
We leurn from them, almost unconsci
ously, to advertise ourselves In big type.
Max De Jipmun, and great men ot his
kind, go on quietly, do good work, how.
ever they may be forced to accomplish it,
and let the work speak for Itself.
No young American boy or girl who

success and struggle, can fail to realise
