The Great Discovery of a Teamster
lly DOROTIIV 1)1 A.
Not Ions ago I wrote a little article
for thin column In which I expressed
the opinion that love and appreciation
were the great and only solvents for all
the domestic mis
ery about us.
I said that I
thought that all
that Was needed
to streak the drab
' and drear niatrl
m o n 1 a 1 horizon
with gold and
purple was just
for husbands and
wives to have
some sign made
to them that
all their sacrifices
i and labor were not
! In vain.
: I said that I was
convinced that the
dlngrunted and dis
illusioned men that
we saw all about
us would find Joy
and not weariness lh their dally
toll to support their families if
only their wives and children would
' . ' V. - . . mA Villa.
band while he was still alive, Instead of
waiting to lay all of their flowers on
. It said that It was ope thin to bend
every energy to-keep a wife soft and
twarm, who told a man every day ' his
-life that he was the finest and most ad
mirable ; husband on earth, and she
thought herself th luckiest woman In
the world to have gotten jlilm, and It
was quite another pair of sleeves for a
man to slave himself to death for a wife
who took all of his work and worry and
sacrifice for granted, and with never a
"thank you," and who whined and com
plained because he didn't make more
money, and couldn't give her the clothes
and the Jewels and the automobiles that
richer women had.
I said that' I believed that most of the
morbid, unhappy, dissatisfied wives that
we knew would find home-making the
most Interesting and thrilling occupation
In tha world Instead of the dearlest and
dullest business extent. If only their hus
bands had the human Intelligence to re
alls how dlshearUnlng It Is to labor for
a boss who always bats you when you
make a mistake and never praises you
tor la triumph.
I said that women found marriage a
failure because their husbands did' not
think H worth whlls to pay them compli
ments, or to tell them that they loved
them, or that they ever perceived that
their wives were bearing burdens cheer
fully under which a hero might have
fainted and fallen.
I said that It was one thing for a
woman to slave and work eighteen hours
a day. for her to wear shabby clothes,
and live In a cheap little home, for a
man who told her every day how It hurt
him that he could not give her every
pretty Jewel he saw, and dress hor like
a prinoess, and save her dear hands
from any labor, and It was another thing
to be poor, and shabby, nnd hardworked
for the sake of a man who grunted and
grumbled every time he was askd for a
penny, and who never noticed that his
wife was offering up her youth and
beauty as a sacrifice before him.
In a word, my contention was that It
Isn't the hardships of marrlyd life that
men and women resent. It Is the fact
that husbands and wives do not appre
ciate the sacrifices that are made for
them, and that it Is only love love that
expresses Itself in words and deeds
that robs these sacrifices of their bitter
ness and makes them worth while.
It Is always pleasant to have our the
ories confirmed by actuol experience, and
so I am going to quote a part of a letter
that I have Just received, bearing upon
this article to which I have referred.
The letter Is from a poor woman who
works in a muslin underwear factory,
where she runs a power machine for fifty
long hours a week for the wage of $8.
Rhe fell In love with a splendid young
fellow, a teamster, who gets 10 a week,
and they got married. Having m lot of
common sense the girl did not give up
her place at the factory when she mar
ried, but continued to "work, and the two
of them ara boarding in a comfortable
place and saving every cent possible of
their combined earnings to start a little
home, as they did not want to begrn
housekeeping overwhelmed with debt to
the Installment furniture man. This
woman, whose husband has ben able to
give her nothing but love, and who still
Ijas to slave. over her sewing machine,
writes me this:
"Wo have been married over a year
now and we have never had a cross word,'
and I did not know that any one In this
world could be so happy as I am.
"We have nothing that rich people
have, but my husband does not go to sa
loons, or places of that sort, and he
never goes out without me.
"He makes very little money, but he
gives me every cent he gets.
"He can't give me fine clothes, but he
loves me with a love that few men ever
give a woman. Every day he tells meV
that ha never had anything but me, and
that I am the best thing that God ever
gave him. - '
"Every night when we come home from
our work he kisses my hands that have
tolled ho bard all day.
"Do you think that I mind working for
a man like that? Do you think that It
hurts me ' that he can't give me fine
clothes when he gives me a love like that?
No, a thousand times no. His love makes
everything worth while."
. This Is a bona fide letter. In it the
writer says that her husband was left an
orphan when a little child, and that he
never had any offortunlty to get an
education or even learn a trade.
Perhaps be Is Ignorant In books, but
he has the supreme wisdom to solve th
great matrimonial problem that has
stumped the wisest philosophers and
sociologists when he kissed the work
hardened hands of his wife. That mJbs
made her willing to work them to ah
bone for him. And the same thing would
have the same effect on any other living
Let all the unhappily married follow tho
example of this couple, for It's love, and
only love, that makes fha domestic wheel
to round without creaking.

Rhodes Was Brutal

York, said of th subway fight:
"At least this fight has been conducted
with politeness and gentleness and re
finement. There has been non of that
brutality about it which used to be Im
puted to Cecil Rhodes.
"I heard, Just recently, a story of
Rhodes' brutality. II was entertaining

luncheon be took them over the grounds,
pointing out to them a aon of Luben
