Flirtations of Married Women
The recent occurrences In Boston form the
Vxt for a sensible sermon by the Hartford
Caunnt. The improper "flirtations" of the
two pinrried . women wilh young men has
blasted their' clinraclets forever, caused the
death of an amiable but weak young man, and
imprisoned the bnsband on a charge of mur
der. Says the CevrimU ''.'
"The 'innocent flirtation' of married women
is one of the abominations ol modem society.
Even a desire for promiscuous admiration is
wrong in the wife. The love ol one and his
approval should bo nil lhal she should desire.

her, and rejoicing in the 'admiration of other
eyes than those of her husband. Her beauty
should be for him alore, not for the gaze of the
fools that flutter a joii nd her. There is always
with the sedate and the wise a sema'.ion of
disgust, when a married , lady attempts to
snare and entrap young men by a profuse dis
piny nt her ciiauns, or an unlicensed outla yol
her smiles, butu cliarms and such smiles are
loathsome to the indifferent beholder the
trail of the serpent is over them all.'
"ouch wives should know, if they do riot
know it already, that their influence over the
virtue and the prudence of Voune men is as

"It is no', true uial womnn's nuecnons are

to your holiness. Will you take ill"
"Take it?" said the confesser, "by

stole it from."
"Faith, and I did, air, and he said be would
not take it by no means."
