HOT WEATHER SUGGESTIONS
TO KEEP PEACE IN FAMILY
On the theory that "hot weather
makes everybody sulky," and a wife
might do much to avoid domestic
troubles that brings couples into
court, Ass't State's Att'y Rosina of
the court of domestic relations, who
has spent several months adjusting
domestic difficulties 'or having hus
bands come across for the support
of wife and family, offers wives hot
weather suggestions he thinks -are
quite as necessary as cold drinks.
Though most of the suggestions
have to do with the conduct of the
wife, Rosinia is a staunch advocate
of women's rights when he gets an
erring husband before him.
"Don't nag your husband during
the hot weather," he says, "for he
may get up and leave. The heat
makes everyone sulky.
"Don't object when hubby wishes
to go to the beach. He will go any
how. Try to accompany him, if
"Don't let the first thing you say
to him at night be that you nearly
suffocated from the heat today. So
did hubby, and it starts unpleasant
"Don't forget to overlook a good
many of your husband's faults dur
ing hot weather. He has probably
worked hard all day in some factory
'and is exhausted and nervous.
"Don't annoy hubby if he is sleep
ing out on the back porch. You may
start something that will never end.
"Don't argue over trivial matters;
it produces irritation.
"Don't be late with meals, and do
have cool and tempting food, for.hot
fried stuff in a heat wave aggravates
a man's stomach and adds to his ir
ritability. "When gossips tell you about see
ing your husband with some girl,
don't believe them; do some investi
gating for yourself.
"Don't tell your husband you met
u former admirer. It may make him
suspicious and result in his meeting
one of his own.
"Don't live with your mother-in-law.
"Don't run to the court of do
mestic relations for a warrant for
your husband the first thing Mon
day morning if he leaves you Satur
day night. He may have gone for a
little- cool air and be back on Mon-'
"Don't be in a hurry to get your
husband arrested on the least prov
ocation. Remember statistics show
that eight out of every ten husbands
arrested on a wife's complaint never
live with their wives again.
"Doir't bring all your children to
the court of domestic relations. We
know you have them and so does
your husband, and the children suf
fer from the heat."
And, last of all, Rosinia finishes up
with one that both husband and
wife should frame and hang where
each is most apt to see it:
"Don't forget you were married
for better or for worse. So give and
take a little on each side."
REV. GAIRDNER'S PARISHONERS
COME TO HIS SUPPORT
Parishoners of St. Martin's Epis
copal church in Austin seem to be "
lined up behind their pastor, the Rev.
H. M. Fortesque Gairdner. Ward B.
Howland, "one of the most influential
officials of the church, will seek
Gairdner in Detroit and Windsor,
Can., where he is now reported to
have gone. Meanwhile the Detroit
papers are lashing the minister.
They printed a story last night to
the effect that on a previous visit to
Detroit the pastor had become mixed
up with a girl named Josephine
