KElla; I do not understand why persons a
should be expected to live together all id
their lives when they disagree upon a c
sublct that that fraught with unhappi- g
ress. The law ought to allow the cor- t
rection of mistakes in marriage as well 1
as rn other busioess traumnetienaor part- 1
nerships. Mrs. Trump; This is a subject I
that admits of a very extended discus- I
sion. but I have uno desire to continue
it. Reason as we will. so long as per- t
sons rush heedlessly lute matrimouy t
just so long will the coertebefilled with I
applications for divorce.
It was natural that Mrs. Trump abould t
not wish to engage ia a protracted dies
cussiou of the divorce question for she is i
one of these unfortunate women that
has mads a bad selection In choosing a
husbaid. It tos never pleasant to be re- I
minded of our mlestakes eves if our con- t
science aoes not condemn us. She, like
so many other women with good judg
muent and good sense sand with opporta- I
aities to make an eligible choice made a I
great blunder when she changed her
name from Alice 8peed to Allen Trump.
With some women a shapely foot Is pre
ferred to an unblemished ebaracter; a
haadsome face ofte bides traom their
view many vices; low wit l oftens mis
taken for brightness of Iatellect. Mrs.
Trump cannot charge her matrimonial
mtvesutre to eidther grae of manner
or attraction of person ia her busbsud

mistakes whiUb'.ebe herself perhaps,

is- coming this way. Mr. Bent; you honor t
is him too bighly by calling him a gentle
sat man; A man who won't pay his just
a debts and makes promises with no in
re- tention of fulfilling them is certainly i
an- not a gentleman. Men who contract

5- there is no moral obligation to pay
Li- them ought to be ostracised socially
a a treated as castaways; public sentiment is
aer too leolent to that classe of men, and we
ip. have our share of them.
r Mr. Uran; We have been listening to
; a discussion or chat on divorce and mar
elr rlage, but as you are married and not in
-- the divorce business thbose questions will
r not interet you, but there is a question
lal In whitd all of us ought to be ititeree
Staed, the subject of a hereafter.
d Mr.Trut; I do net let that bother me
in say way; in fact, I never think of it
onless some one calls my attention to
it. Mr. Rent's face relaxed with a smile
as his conjecture was veriflal in Mr.
Unra's reply. Mr. Truth you do not meazi
to aay that yeu. Mr. Uran are indiffer
ent to your fate in the next life?
an Mr. Uran; that question is too far off
he to think of. I have more important busit
Ir. ness needing my attention to let my
ig. mind rest upon that subject.
li Mr. Truth; it may not be so far off as
you think. Death often gives no warn
in lo of his coming It comes as a thief
't the night, sometimes.
lth Mr. Uran; I will have to take chances
like other people. Mr, Truth; it seems
1- that you do not believe in the necessity
a of making preparations for a future
ny state; Would also infer that you are of
i- the world, wordly-that is, that your
mind is whelly engrossed with mundane
or affairs. Mr. Uran; you are getting a
little beyond my knowledge of English;
what do you mean by mundane. Mr.
Truth; pertaining to the earth. Uran;
o when I get In another world, or change I
my existence, I will then attend to the
Ir. tbligs of that life. Mr. Truth; do you n

ture is not dependent upion youlr coalduct

Shave no relation one with the otler?
Uran; Yes, that is albout where I standl.
Mr. Truth; So in your dealing withl your
fellow man you are not governed by any T

the life to come? that you are naot goingR
to be bribed to enter heaven, or as Sir 2
Thomas Browne, about three hullndred -
years ago said, shoved nauto heavesn by
Sfear. Uran. I would not express my
views in such strong lanlguage. baut will
s ay, "my dealings with people are con
Sduceted upon bnsiness principles." Af
ter Mr. Uran retired. Mr. Bent remarked,
you got just what I antlelpated; his last
Sanswer, was quite an iogenlous one, so
by accident I presume, as I have a very
poor opinion of his mental caliber. He
gave himself great latitude of action in
stating that he dealt with mankid alc- a
cording to bunsiness principles; that
might mean with him the liberty to
practice simulation dinrlmulation, de
ception, falsehoodl, and even frand, and
t I have no doubt he has IIed all( as aids
a. in his business transactiusls. iHe fur
a nnlhed a type of iadivilduals that we of
1 ten sieet. He is a masn sf rotisi.t hI'altlh,

ts all like him to construe ousiness prinei
is ples to mean anything that selfishness
i1i avarice and a depraved moral sense
t- might suggest.

ut the man whom I heard say that he did j
es net know but it was justifiable to over
ut reach a man with a limited amount of
I business sagacity as he was not respon
an usiWe for a man's mental weakness; that
lie God hail created him and set him afloat

tv and toned by adverse winds, therefore
ire he is a legitimate subject to prey upon;
Ise that in undertakinl to make allowances
ch for a fellow being's mental deficlences
tse in a business transaction would be in- -
ve terferring with God's ordinances. We see -
