You are far, too familiar witlher,"
a man remarked to me not long ago.
"I suppose not," I replied meekly.
"I couldn't keep her five minutes if
I didn't treat her properly!"
Every woman hears some such
comment from the masculine mem
bers of her household. For man still
believes that the Saliclaw which for
bade woman to inherit applies to the
intellect. He does not understand that
the only possible answer to the' ques
tion, "What is a husband worth men

A husband is worth much or little

When women stop thinking after
marriage it is only because they
haven't room to think. With certain
sorts of men a brain becomes as su
perfluous as a vermiform appendix!
Like the appendix, he views it merely
as a source of future trouble and in

it altogether. I don't blame them!
WHAT HINDU HUSBANDS.BRING
The price of a Hindu bridegroom
who has graduated may go up to 10,
000 rupees (about $3,500); 3,000
rupees is a quite usual demand, and
even a matriculate can command 500
rupees. The enhancement of rates is
due to the law of supply and demand.
Girls of India must ordinarily be mar
ried before puberty, while the increas
ing requirements of education have
led to the postponement of the mar
riage of boys. There is thus a dimin
ishing supply of husbands, whereas
the demand is unchanged.

.WHY IS IT?
Why do the hills a long way off
look blue and hazy while the hill you
are climbing is just a plain hill, sandy
.and. covered with green grass and not
a blue tiling about it?
Ab a, matter of fact, there isn't
much difference in hills, but you look
at the hill you are climbing through
such a thin layer of air that you see it
just as it is, and the hill at a distance
is seen through layers and layers of
air, and the air seems blue because
the tiny specks of matter floating in
it reflect the blue fays of the sun to
our eyes. As you know, if you look at
anything through a colored curtain
or layer, the thing beyond that cur
tain, be it hill or mountain, takes on
the color of the curtain.
But the far-away hills are not al
ways blue. Their seeming color de
pends on their real color and on the
time of day we look at them, as the
hour decides the angle at which the
sunlight falls on them. Scientists have
written a great deal about the reflec
tion of light on the hills, but this ex
