Three thousand eight hundred and

the domestic relations court in New York
during tin year Mil;

that they took their

, 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
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.
