Farmers who work oxen know
what that means and they know
how unsatisfactory is tbe work
done by a pair of oxen when une
qually yoked. There is no way of
getting them to pull in harmony so
that each shall bear its own burden.
In business affairs there are part
ners sometimes who do not match
well. One is a quick starter and
the other slow and deliberate.
So they move by jerks and jolts.
The sooner they dissolve the part
nership the better for both of

A city widow who was educated and
refined. Husband and neighbors
soon began to laugh at her on ac

She applied for a divorce and got

A few days ago a marriage was
annulled because a man who was a
Protestant married a Catholic girl.
He promised to be married by a
Catholic priest, but after the cere
mony was performed by a Protes
tant he refused to have the second
ceremony. He basely deceived her.
The woman in that cas? should
never have yielded to his persua
sion to marry at all. She was
weak and foolish and he was a de
Young people are going to keep
np the habit of marrying and they
are not going to adopt the plan of
"trial marriages." In this state it
is a life time partnership. Once
the yoke is on, it has to ?tay there,
whether it is easy or burdensome.
If not adjusted and made easy it

Here are some of the differences
which should be considered in a bu
siness way by young people. Church
relations cause much trouble. A
man and woman, with irreconcila
ble church creeds and prejudices,
should never tie up at the mar
riage altar. They will never be
broken in to pull together. Such
a relation is bad for their chil
A man or woman claiming to be
an artist and nothing else should
never marry one totally opposite in
habits and taste. The woman whose
soul is attuned to heavenly har
monies can never pull well with

to sow and reap and accumulate
The girl brought up to do noth

So the final word to young peo
ple is to study church, social, po
litical and educational relations
before they agree to slip the same
yoke over their necks. Remember
that yokes are made of tough, sea
soned timber and it is impossible
to bend them to suit the neck of
the wearer. "Be ye not unequally

The preacher was eloquent, the

Presently he whispered to the man
