HUSBANDS, NOTICE! In the last
few issues Of The Day Book Mme.
Schumann-Heink has been giving
advice to brides. So far the articles
emphasize the importance of being,
above all, a "successful" wife, and go
on in detail explaining what is meant
by this particular term.
At various times'l have seen sim

who, singular though it may seem,
have comparatively happy home lives.
The woman who is foolish enough to.

keeper and loving her husband will
find it is a very diffilcult task to ad

the honeymoon, as she Imagined she
would be from his protestations be
fore marriage, that his business, the
events of the world, even baseball,
are as important to him as is she.

about at home and prefers the com

But the real thing I wanted to say

a Successful Husband?" My husband,
God bless him, says: "Dust your
brains before you dust your house,"
and he doesn't thnk my "sphere" is
being a cook and housekeeper.
He doesn't slam the door and go 1
out when we disagree. Rather we sife
down qnd talk it over like two men,
and we are both more than willing to
give in when we see we are in the
wrong. There's never a harsh word
or a quarrel in our home. Our motto

discord or any unpleasantness in the
