[R. ll. Ja. Tells About
Piedmont, S. C.. Oct. L'7, HMM. t
Kditors Intelligencer and friends:
We have been tb the World's Fair,
three <>f us-thc writer, Mrs. A. I*.
Dodson and Miss .Jane Long, of Pied
mont. The South was well represent
ed in thc generously numbered com
pany that formed our travelling asso
ciates, or il might have been that, a?
in the case of thc noted "Samantha,"
"thc ear was crowded; mabie folk-?
liad hcarn of "ur goin' and wanted t
ride a spell with us." However, thc
World's Fair was tl" bec buzzing in
many a bonnet, and its music is to
day thc fwectest sound wc have heard j
iu many years.
Dear editors and friends, this is not
a letter descriptive of thc great expo
sition, hut a'tpleading to every intelli
gent family in thc South, that this
opportunity of a life time flit not be
fore the closing days of November. '
This is an universal exposition, it is
not a gallery, or machine shop of
America, or Kuropc, or Italy, 01
of the uttermost parts of the earth
together, but from centre to eircum- ?
fercucc, thc world, in all that is
worth seeing or hearing. People '
should sec it. Families, amply pro
vided with means, yearly pull down
their barns and build greater, raise
their houses and build higher, and
stay at home!-knowing little of the j
world beyond their back doors, or
nprcading out into a universe before
Going and corning constantly arc
multitudes who propose on their trip
that on return they will tell about thc
exposition, but they can't nor do they
try. Thc things describable arc things
comparatively worthless, it is thc un
deseribable that is of value. The
fair remains as the individual gift to
the intellect of caoh person who sets
ic. It cannot bc transferred, and each
must find it for himself. It is impos
sible to picture what we feel when
thc great panorama first opens upon
our vision. When it steals our senses
and wc follow it in all aspects be
tween earth aud sky-an overhanging
mirage in thc clouds-an uuder
spreadiog plaza of Howers, light,
water, fountains, merriment, a change
less and changing appeal to our facul
ties of beauty and eternity that all
else may pass away but-this, never.

Salt pork 16 a famous old
fashioned remedy for con
sumption. "Eat plenty of
pork," was the advice to the
consumptive 50 and 100
Salt pork is good if a man
can stomach it. The idea
behind it is that fat is the
food the consumptive needs
Scott'sEmulsion is the mod
ern method of feeding fat to
the consumptive. Pork is too
rough for sensitive stomachs.
Scott's Emulsion is the most
refined of fats, especially
prepared for easy digestion.
Feeding him fat in this
way, which is often the only
way, is half the battle, but
Scott's Emulsion does more
than tkat. There is some
thing about the combination
of cod lireroil and hypophos
phites iii ^Scott's Emulsion
that puts new life into the

action on-the diseased lungs.

by asking its feminine rcud'-rs who

This is a regular judgment day in
quiry that few women will care to
face and answer honestly, for most of
us prefer to deal with glittering gen
eralities so far as our conduct is con
cerned, and to believe that we strike a
pretty good general average as a wife,
rather than to confine ourselves to
any specific acts. Nevertheless it is
a question that every married woman
may well pause and put to herself, for
then- can be no other thing iii the
world so important to her as whether
she i.- helping or hindering her hus
In a way it may be said that wo
man's position on the subj.-ct of wo
man's influence is always an extreme
one. Ut, fore -lie i- married site be
lieves in it implicitly. After she is
married sin- disbelieves in it absolute,
ly. Before she is married she thinks
thai lo r husband will be in her hands
like clay in the bands ufa potter, and
she cets into matrimony with all sorts
id' noble atnl altruistic ideas of u?>in^
this great influence for his uplifting
j to the higher life. After she is mar
ried, when shu finds out that sht
hasn't got enough influence over bet
husband to break him from chewing
tobacco, or sitting on the back of hit
neck, or to get him to dress for din
ncr, the pondulum swings to the othct
extreme, and she rushes to the con
elusion that she has little or no in
Hucncc on his life.
Men encourege this opinion in wo
men by treating them too often ai
dolls to bc dressed up and playci
with, or burdens to bc borne, yet it i
a very solemn truth that on the day
man marries he casts the die of hi
fate and that his future depends o:
whether his wife is going to be a bel
or a hindrance to him. Very, vcr
few men have the strength and abilit,
to succeed in spite of their wives
but almost any man can succeed i
helped by his wife.
Now every woman is either a bel
or a hindrance to her husband. I
a relationship so close as that of mai
riaje there is no middled groun, am
a wife is either thc ladder on which
man climbs upward, or else she is iii
millstone about his neck that dra?
him down. From the dawu of civi
ization history has been fu
of thc achievements of men who wei
made by their wives, and in a thou
and suicides' graves lie the wrecks (
genius who were ruined by the
wives. A wife is either a hoodoo or
mascot for her husband, and it
up to her to decide which one she wi
Thu woman who is honest enouj!
to ask herself this question : A
I a help or a hindrance to n
husband, must look at it from mai
points of view. The first one is tl
financial one, and she must ask he
self: "Am I running him in debt
am I helping him to get ahead, and
lay up something for the future'
The majority of American men mar
on no capital but their nerve. Th?
have seldom saved up anything, ai
the bride goes to them equally empt
handed. To a largo degree this pu
the decision of their future in h
hands. If she starts out living e
travagantly, spending all that her hu
band makes oe perhaps even runnii
him in debt thoy will be poor to tl
end of the chapter.
No man, unless he has the geni
of a Rockefeller, oan combat a w
man's extravagance. Any woman ci
throw more out of (he baok door wi
a teaspoon than her husband o
'shovel in with a scoop at the fro
door, and so ninety-nias times out
a hundred it is the woman who s<
ties whether her husband shall spei
his life OB the stool of a olerk or ri
to bo one of the partners. Any vt
man whose husband is not getti
along does well to ask herself: Am I
help or a hindrance to him?
Another question she may ask ht
self is whether she is a help or hie
rana? socially. Does she incline pi

Heated into soft places on thc strength j
of his wife's popularity.
Still another question tba?, a wife j
may ask herself is, am 1 a help or J
hindrance to my husband spiritually?
I>o I keep him buoyed up with
hope, or do 1 dampen his ardor aud
throw a wet blanket on his enthus
iasm. Without going into all of the
intricacies of thc new thought philoso
phy, which is a bit too nebulous for
un st of us, it is still true that a mau
can only do what ht- thinks he can do,
and if a woman discourages his every
project, if she denis, Cassandra-like,
in prophesies of woe, she becomes an
evil intluence that literally summons
disaster. The man who feeds that his j
wife believes in bim, that she expects
liim to succeed and is trying tn help
him to succeed, lias a moral power
back of him that almost lifts him past
tin: goal. Ile will return again and
again ti) thc tight long after the mau
. itli the croaking wife has thrown
down his sword and surrendered.
Am 1 giving my husband the right
atmosphere in which to work, is an
ther question that tho woman who
wants to be a help instead of hind
ince to her husband must ask ber
df. Nothing is uiore pathetic than
to think of what the world lias lost
through women not understands g
their husband's temperament. Gen
erally .-peaking no Lian can do good
work unless he goes out of a happy
and peaceful home. It takes rest and
i|uiet for thc poor nerves, worn and
torn with the struggle of the world to
knit themselves up again, and many a
woman whose home is always full of
bickering and strife and complaints
ogaiust servants, is literally the cause
of her husband's bankruptcy, dimply
because she has worn out at home the
mental strength and ability that
ought to have been given to bis busi
Nor is this all. Meu who engage in
literary and artistic careers must have
a certain'atmosphere if they would do
their best work, they uiust be freed
from certain little bondages and du
ties, aud a woman who is married to a
man of this kind, if she would be a
help and nob a hindrance, must stand
like a buffer between him and the out
side world. There is no doubt that
many a great poem that might have
been written bas never been written
because the poet had to walk a colicky
baby instead of wooing the muses,
and that the tine fervor of many a
novel bas evaporated between tho
drudgery of having to do household
chores. Women seldom sympathize
with thc impracticability of genius,
and that is the reason that geniuses
ought never to marry.
In this question as to whether a
woman is a help or a hindrance to her
husband there comes in the very prac
tical matter of housekeeping. In the
end, no matter what his talents, no
matter what his ability, no matter
what his opportunity, a man's power
to aooomplish anything depends upon
his health, and that lies to an enor
mous extent in his wife's hands. She
can give him dyspepsia that will make
him cross and grumpy, and ready to
quarrel with his best customer by giv
ing him bad cooking, or she can do
muoh to induce a Sunny Jim amiabil
ity by feeding him on good food. Few
men ever consider dietetic them
selves. They generally eat what is
set before them, and it is the wife's
fault if the food is not wholesome and
nourishing. I know a woman who
married a delioate, nervous, anemic
man, and who literally built him np
into a splendid physique, by her in
telligent care. The husband's busi
ness was a strenuous one, in which at
times he would be subjected to an
enormous physioal and mental strain.
At suoh times she surrounded him
with a eare that made his achieve
ments possible. The table was sup
plied with only the most easily digest
ed and nourishing things, no sound
was allowed to wake his slumber.
Everything that oould possibly dis
turb him mentally or physically was
kept from him religiously, and thus
he was enabled to perform an amount
of work that would have been impos
sible under any other conditions.
Mauy of the duties of life are thrust
upon us, and if we perform them in
j differently we have at least the excuse
j of the loocditions not being of our
choosing, but when we marry we do so
of oar own free will and accord-we
voluntarily shoulder the responsilility,
and we sin against God and man if we
fail uue jot or tittle. To help the
mau she loves ia the greatest happi
ness that any woman ?an ever know.
Te be a hindrance to him is her great
est misfortune. There can ba nj
other erown of sorrow like that of the
wife who, looking bask, has the bitter
knowledge forced OB her that sha hat
been her husband's evil genius, and
that ho would have been happier and
more successful man if ho had never
married her.-Dorothy Dix in New
