the high and low, the bitter and sweet of life after marriage will be printed

"THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE"
Are REAL. We feel sure that women will instantly recognize this. "Mar
garet Hastings" confides to her diary the thoughts that most women think,
but do not dare speak out. She has written them courageously, sym
pathetically and sanely. She does not extol herself nor does she blame
others for her -heartaches.
WHAT THE DIARY SAYS
The writer of this diary has set down each day the different episodes
that go to make up married life. She tells what she thinks of them and of
the man- she married. And incidentally she gives a picture of herself that
no woman can fail to recognize as a truthful type of "the sex."
The every-day life of a wife is pictured the joys, the sorrows, the
humor and the tears, the big sacrifices and the little sins, the "common
things o,f the common day," as well as the. wonderful happenings which
make life really worth living. Every one of these will be found in "The Con
fessions of a Wife" a wife who is an average woman married to an aver
age man and whose existence is that of the average human being!

and scholars shows that they are on
the right roadto come into their own

Those old fellows, you know, who
wrote years ago, had exactly the1
same problems to face that exist to-'
day and the best writers did not hesi
tate to write about them and suggest
remedies. Nowadays, dramatists and
I novelists seem to be vieing with one
j another to see who can produce the
nastiest "shocker" and still be with
in the law. And the element of so
ciety that is catering to this stuff
must undoubtedly be becoming
weaker physically and mentally as
well as morally.
Good music, drama and reading
are necessary to the right kind of
living and they are cheap.
