Three thousand eight hundred and lEpty-tbre person " were arranged In the domestic relations court in New York during tin year Mil; Jusf think of Uia amount of domestic misery that these . .vjt,. figure ' represent, think of the deeerta of bleated Illusions' and blighted, hopes, ot th mountains of broken dreamt, the aalt seas of tears for which they etand! Just think, that In one city alone, beside the ubiquitous common, or garden variety of family spats there were UB& husband! and wives who quarrelled to such aa extent that that they took their troubles Into court. , It la appalling. It la enough to make anybody conclude that tt' marriage Isn't a failure It la the short cut to trouble. 1ft commenting on those raws of do mestic Infelicity. Mice Ron McQuade.Vhe probation officer of the domestic rela tions court, says: . . "The chief source ot discord between married people that sends them to our 'court Is'tBe mother-rn-raw.-'ir makes no difference whether It's the. man's mother or the woman's mother. Her appearance la a household la th beginning of trouble and I hare coma to the conclusion that a mother-in-law ahould never pay more than a formal call to the home of her sen-ln-law. And under no circumstances should she remain overnight. '. j "The second aourse of tronble Is drink ing on the part of the husband and slovenliness on the part of the wife. A third reason for disagreement In the family Is extravagance and shlftleasnesa. "But underneath all Is. the vital fact sits on the door step, howling, and where the husband's and wlfe'a nerves are on edge with' anxiety about the fu ture, and overstrain and privation In the present. The maa who sees his family half 'atanr Ing on his Insufficient wage, who looks at his wife's worn, white face, and bis undernourished children, must curse him self for having brought such misery oa those he loves snd for a fool for having married. The wife who sees her hus band hagirard and old, and worn out be fore his time, striving vainly to support Ms family In comfort, must reproach her self for being a burden upon him and feel It would have been better, for both of them if they had been stricken dead on their 'wedding day Instead of plunging recklessly Into a Jite .that haa meant nothing but hardships to both ot them. It Is Inevitable that the man. being human, under such circumstances con trasts his lot with that of his unmarried companions who on the same salary are enabled to live comfortably because they can spend all tbey make on themselves. It h Inevitable that the woman, ' being human, should contrast her lot with that of her unmarried friends who work no harder than she does, but whose salaries enabls them to have good eluothea and good food and a comfortable place to live In. It Is also Inevitable under such circumstances that the man and the woman should reproach each other and ear leal that the other waa to Mama. Unfortunately for romance, oar phy sical needs are more pressing than our 'spiritual one. Nobody cares a rap about bla heart when his stomach la empty. Nobody Is sentimental when hungry or uncomfortable, and for these reasons eupld peak up his grip and hikes out for a more congenial location when poverty Invades a heme. The statistics of the Domestic rela tion court are earnestly commended to the attention of all the young Romeos who are contemplating matri mony on fit and fl) per. It I s t Gee! Your a Happy Guy! By Tad IffHSna that thstv win Ha wsil tn that the average weekly wage of the , hw) or t t(UhM (hu nrri. on an Insufficient .Income doesn't bring man arralnged hers Is between tl and 114" This sounds sordid, doesn't It? The ro mantlo young creatures who are con templating marrying on nothing but love, and who believe that they can live on kisses win be horrified at this plain blunt statement of the fact that love's young dream haa to be sustained on beefsteak and onions, or else It turns up Its little toes and dies, and that people who lack the ordinary oemfort of life no longer kiss. They snap and snarl at each other. Tet such Is .unfortunately the ease. Slarrlage la a business, aa welt aa a sen timental proposition, and It goes Into bankruptcy If It has not a suffidentf flasndal backlns This does not mean that It must be capitalised Into the mil lions. Far from It. Undoubtedly young people of moderate meana who work to gether and sacrifice together and build up together are the happiest. But they must have enough Income lo provide them With the ordinary com forts and decende of life, or els their marriage la a foredoomed failure. There la ao such thing possible aa a cheerful, contented, peaceful home where the wolf a young couple happiness. It plunges them Into certain misery. Peepl who are always ' worried to death over the rent and the grocery bill, who arp overworked, and whose tempera are raw with perpetual sacrt flees that bars bean forced upoa them. are net In a condition to be amiable and ' affectionate companions. Qn the contrary, they are ready to fight at the drop of a hat, and they make of their homes a perpetual battleground. Therefore. Edwin and Angelina, heed the warning of the Domestic Rda. tlona court. Don't try matrimony on fl or fit a week. Walt and work unt' yon hav gotten enough money to Insure love having bread and butter and an occasional piece of pie to eat And don't be misled Into believing that two people can live aa cheaply as one.

The, "Complete Angler," by laaak Wei. ton. published Us years ago. la one ef the most remarkable books In the world. Those who have not read It have aliased the feast of their live. It haa been the delight of the elect of th earth Tor more than two cen turies and a half. and Its popularity la greater today than It ever waa The quaint e I d London llnea draper made tor himself through the writ ing- ot hie little book a reputation that wilt live for ever. There is no name In literature whose immortality Is more secure thaa that ot laaak Walton. Nor Is the reason far to seek. Walton fished, ever "taking care to handle the fish as though he loved then! and aa be fished ha thought and dreamed about himself and the fishes and the great nature about him, and of human life la general; and out ot those thoughts and dreams the "Complete Angler grew aa naturally and beautifully as the rose grows out ot the rosebush. Thua are we able ta account tor the fact thst there rune throughout the little book the "one touch of nature that makes the whole world km." Men of all raees and natlonalltlea, ef all creeds and parties, read the "Complete Angler" and find lit It the joy that cannot be bought for pold, and which, having tasted, they would not sell for all the gold la the world. , It has been said that In the bland and! soothing air of Madeira "babies never j cry and grown people never despair;."! certain It is that In the mental stmes-j phere of Watson's little book no eejs' oaa feel blue, or hateful, or selfish. If spirit makes us all brothers, all friends and helpers one of snother, sad at tbei same time Inspires us. with the feellac that there Is nothing la the whole anf verse that la going to, harm us, jot that wants to harm us. , . The folly of human greed; the fatter vanity snd emptiness ot the human dis tinctions that have distracted and cursed the world; the sheer foolishness of th prides and ambitions which have kedi at the bottom ot moat of the wars and oppressions that have degraded and des olated humanity; the wealth ot a dear conscience and a humble, contented mind; the glory belonging to the eeftl that quietly eommunea vtth nature and through nature with stature'a OceV these things are brought home to us In the "Complete Angler" aa they are hr ae ether book la all the libra rtea of the earth. . j "Honest eld laaak Walton." "Dear old Isaak Walton." By suck terms fe the II nan draper and fisherman referred to by the multitude whe hav been mad happier and better by hie book. . laaak Walton founded ae empire, estab lished no dynasty, fought ao bsltl. originated ae school at philosophy, or science, or art; but h gave da th "Complete Angler," and hennas he did that bis nam nil forever live In the world's grateful The Head Waitress By HANK.
