abandons tho helm In despair, woman
seizes It, and carries tho home-ship
through tho storm I Man often files
from homo and family to avoid lm
pending poverty or ruin.
Woman seldom, if over, forsook
homo thus. Woman novcr evaded
mere temporal calamity by suicide or
desertion. Tho proud banker, rather
than live to sco his poverty gazetted
may blow out his brains and leave
wifo nnd children to want, protector

to cherish his family and retrlevo

beauty and glory of her naturo that
It Instinctively grasps at and clings

Ilenson, man's greatest faculty will
take tlmo to hcsltata before It de

hesitates In Its decision, and Is sel
dom wrong where it hns oven clmnc

mnn thinks, acts where ho dcllber
ates, hopes whero ho despairs, and
triumphs where ho falls.
