Husbands and wives in speaking of
each other to friends and acquaintances
should observe a certain formality
Vulgarity touches bottom when the
personal pronoun "he" or "sht
used without the name for which these
stand, and this usage, to be sure, being
conhned to out ot the way and primi
tive portions of the country, is never
general enough to be worth noticing,
Vou will hear the sunbonneted woman
with the straight skirt leaching to her
stout calfskin shoes and the murks of
lifelong toil and exposure in her hard
ened hands allude to her backwoods
partner as "he1' or as " Tim," never as
"my husband" or as "Mr, Smith."
But in more refined circles, where
people know and observe the require
ments of etiquette, a w unan does n ot
use her husband's Christian name,
much less any abbreviation of it, out
side the narrow confines of their com
mon kindred. He is "John" or "lack"
only among his brothers and sisters or
to very intimate friends. When his
wife has occasion to speak of him to
others she says "my husband" or "Mr.
Jones, doing the very thing as a matter
of course which the person who is
economical of nouns and lavish of pro
nouns fails to do. t
A wife who values her husband's
dignity will not regard it as of little
moment whethir she upholds this by
scupulously speaking of him with
respect, as well .,s addressing him with
courtesy, his position in the social
world being helped or hindered by her
practice in this regard
If the man have an official title, as
colonel, judge, or governor, doctor or
professor, his wife will use that title in
mentioning him 111 places and on occa
sions and in the pretence of persons
whenever or to whom this usage will
be in good taste. Harper's Bataar,
Two Hundred Inches of Rainfall.
r.herra Punji, in the Kha-i hills,
Assam, British India, is the ''pole of
the greatest known rainfall. " In other
words, it is the wettest region un the

are rather incomplete, there being iev

from these weather journals, however
incomplete as they are, prove that quite
frequently during the summer, say
from May to September, the rainfall
for ft single month ranges from too to
312 inches. Think ot it' Nearly
