To Beat your doom on a surgical plank

WHEN MAN STAYS AT HOME.
Via Said That Hi Wife Soon Tlrea
of His Company.
It Is surprising how soon a wife
tires of the company of a man who
is too much at home. Men are wise
in getting away from their roof trees
a certain portion of each day. Among
their wives wll be found a very gen-c-l
concensus of c4'"tor to tty" ef
fect. There will bo found everywhere
a disposition to pack off the men In
the morning, and to bid them keep out
of the way till toward evening, when
It is assumed that they will probably
have a little news of the busy world
to bring home, and when baby will
be sure to have said something exrep
tlonally brilliant and precocious. The
general events of the day will afford
topics of conversation more Interest
ing by far than If tho whole household
had been together from morn till
night. A very little Inquiry, too, will
elicit the fact that mon about home
all day are eminently apt to bo fid
gety and grumpy and interfering
