WIFE IS T
Woman Should -A.ss
A woman signing herself "A Heart- ?
broken Wife" writes as follow.-:
"Please write something ou the ,
rights of a wife. Won't you please j
try to explain thc disposition of a j
man who has never taken hie wife to
church, or for a walk, or on a pleasure i
trip (although he takes a long one !
himself each year,) who never has a j
kind word to say, goes his business !
trips and never kisses his wife, not I
even saying good-bye. and says he is j
doing his wife a great favor to pay tho
grocery bill and house rent. It is a j
favor for a woman to stay at home, t
raise her babies, and walk tho floor j
with them w'hco ill, and no one to
over rest the tired arm or Hay a kind
word. I have tried to bo a good, true
wife and do my duty, and all that I
ask ?B a little kindness. What arb a
wife's rights? Has she any beyond
breathing? What is life for such a
woman? I still lovo the father of my
little ones, and, DO matter how un
kind ho is, always try to find some
excuse for him. Please write some
thing on this subject. Tho only pleas
ure I have on earth is in reading at
night, after my little ones are asleep
and my hard day's work is over. I
shall watch for your answer and shall
thank you for it."
With mingled pleasure and sorrow
I proceed to answer this poor wifo's
letter. It is a very sad letter, a let
ter that is well calculated to touch
the hardest heart.
Tho poor woman's loneliness; her
perpetual longing for the kindness
that does not como; tho tired arms:
tho ocaseloss toil for the little ones;
tho heart faint at the thought of thc
husband's brutal indifference-alto
gether it is enough to moisten the eye
of tho most stoical of mankind.
What sort of man can it be who is
able to treat a wifo as this wife says
she io treated? Can hebe human?
Must not be some sort of monster in
How oan a man, a husband, a fa
ther, bo so dead to all deoenoy and
humanity as to act tho way this wo
man says her husband sots toward
I wonder if I am wreng in ventur
ing tho guess that this partioular wife
is herself to blame for the treatment
she receives at her husband's hands?
6he says she "still loves" the man,
and always "tries to find some excuse
for him." ,.
In other words, she is too essy with
him. It would be a great deal better
for all oonoerned if she would assert
herr '* a little bit; if she would Btand
up in the strength and dignity of her
wifehood' and give him a eovere
touque keb i pg now rind then.
A wife does not want to bo too
dooile with a husband like that. She
wants to tell him exactly what she
thinks of him. She wantft to stand

liko that, the meaner he will treat
her. Meekness and docility are all
right in their time and place, but the
thing for thc wifo with a thoughtless,
indifferent husband to do is to "go
for" him in dead earnest with thc
sharpest of sharp .sticks.
This poor woman should assert her
rights -lier rights aa a wife.
As a wife she has the right to her
husband's protection and love; tho
right to a perpetual kindness at that
husband's hands; thc right to be treat
ed with a. delicacy and tondernesB a
thousandfold greater than that with
which the florist handles tho rarest
flower or thc goldsmith thc most ex
Such are the wife'B rights; and
when these rights are ignored or for
gotten she would not bo at all back
ward in letting thc husband know that
she fully realizes the situation; that
sho quito clearly understands tho
faot that she is not getting what be
long to her; and that bc must either
ohaoge his tactics or get another
place in whioh to oat, sleep and play
It is too much to hope that tho
husband in quotion may seo this ar
ticle and may bo moved immediately
thereafter to do ono of two things
treat his wifo botter or go out and soil
himself to somebody for a hog?

"Honest John,1' and the other as
"Sandworin Joh?." Sometimes ago
"Sandworm John" got into trouble.
Ho needed a dollar to get him out and
he didn't have thc cash. He appeal
ed to several people, but no ono secm
el anxious to part with that much of
tho realm. Finally ho made his way
to "Honest John."
"John will you lend me a dollar?"
"Wbat for?'' asked the other John.
"Never mind what for," said "Sand
worm," impatiently. "I want a dol
lar and I want it bad."
"Want it bad, do you?" queried
"Yes, I do want it bad, "rill you
lend me one?"
John considered a minute or two
and finally decided to financier his
neighbor through the difficulty. Ile

a ail /er do',lar wbioh he handed to
"Sandworm," who departed rejoicing.
Io a short time "Sandworm" came

something thc matter with that dol

"Why not?" asked "Honest John."
"They all say it's bad."
"Honest Joon" gave his neighbor a

"What's the matter with you 'John
