Receipts for managing husbands are
llways in order. They have to be man
tgetl, there is no getting around that
fact. There are as many processes of
management as there are men to be
managed and women to manage, but
this new Idea from the New Yorlc Sun
is certainly worth trying:
"A ■•oil answer luiliotll away wrath,'.'
Bays the Hood ilook. It is woman who
is generally expected to keep the soft
answer in working order, although it
sometimes depends on men. However,
things have changed in l.s.i:; years, and
the one who gives the soft answer is
pretty apt to get bullied, in domestic
life the soft answer no longer compares
with a sense of humor. A properly di
rected sense of humor will not only
efface the casus belli, but restore the
status quo. The appropriateness of
these phrases will indicate changes
in the social relations since
the original system was put
forth. This may he Illustrated.
A woman, with ft sense of humor de
lightful to all her friends, married. As
most brides, she had studied well her
role. Tins obliged her to In; sweet
tempered in season and out of season!
She literally kept soft answers in slock.
In the early period of her domestic, ca
reer these did all thai could be expected
of them in keeping the atmosphere of
lonic sweet and clean. Uul soft an
swers, like all other remedial means, in
time seemed i<> lose thoir efficacy.
Nothing daunted on her part she had
them on taptiigaiusl all manner, of un
reasonableness from a tired, nervous
man. Alter a time she came to see that
not only did her soft answers fail to
work out properly, but lhat sha was en
couraging the development of a species
of domestic bully. After every turn of
her soil answer she realized not only a
loss of self-resueet, but of respect for
the being whose unreasonableness she
\\;v. humoring like that of a Howard
Her sense of justice was roused. It
her domestic happiness was logo down
it should at leiisl go down with Hying
colors. She met attack by attack. She.
secured the last word at all hazards.
In reviewing these scenes she draws a
veil over, the details, but exhibits a cer
lain reprehensible complacence at her
own achievements. One day a friend
who had sometimes seen the fringe of
battle said to her: "Why do you take
your husband so seriously? You
used to have a . lovely sense ol
humor. Why can you not see
your husband in the light of a
joke?" "Joke!" exclaims the-dis
gusted woman. All lhe same it gave a |
turn to her thoughts. Keeling mistress j
of herself on the next occasion, she
turned her wits on him. lie was routed,
but retired in good order, and whistled.
Evidently he was as glad lo gel out of
it in that way as she, since their amia
ble relations escaped with' scarcely a
fracture, In time it rather entertained
her to lie suddenly called upon to prac
tice her wits in meeting emergencies.
Hut what was most distinctly gratifying
was the increased respect het husband
appeared to show for her intellect. She
amused him; he began to value her as a
companion. On the other hand, in ceas
ing to regard him as a child to be hu
mured, she began to respect him as a
man. This is the tale of two people.
CANDOR Bit; FORE MARRIAGE.
Nothing Else Will So Surely Tend
Toward Mutual Happiness,
No man should become engaged to a
woman without having a perfectly frank
talk with her In regard to his means,
and the woman should be quite as hon
est in telling of her qualifications and
willingness to -undertake to master the
problem of making a home on the in
come that seems assured to them both,
writes Maria I'arloa in a valuable article i
on the "Division of the Family Income"' j
In tin- February Ladies' Home Journal.
More than this, they both should go ;
over this question deliberately, looking j
nt all sides of it. The changed mode ■
of living, the self - denials, the I
lidded expense of sickness, if
It should come, all should "be
carefully considered. The man
who for years has spent, his income
upon himself, living, perhaps, like his
neighbor, who lias a fortune back of
him, will often be frightened nt the
picture of the future which this caretul
weighing of the subject presents to
liim, ami he may decide either to wait a
few years. or else do what, unfort
unately, a great many young married
people think they must do— go to a
boarding house. The woman may have
lived an aimless. careless life, her father
being able to support her In comfort
and, perhaps, elegance. The picture
may have as little charm for her us lor
'man who lias asked her to marry
him, and she, 100. is glad to set
tle upon the boarding house, as
promising more style and ease tor less
money than can the simple home. This
Is one solution of the problem. Another
common happening is that either one or
the oilier finds— or, perhaps, both the
man and woman do- that they have not
the independence and moral courage to
lie willing to live in such * simple, un
fashionable manner as their means
would compel Ihem to. When two peo
ple feel that way it would be belter for
them ami the world at large that they
remain single; for we have today too
many people who are trying to live as if
they had an income of many thousands,
when, in fact, it is often the case they

WIFE AM) SWEETHEART.
A Common Mistake That Young
Every bride knows her po wes; every
wife comes to know her weakness,
writes Octave Thanet In ft delightful
article on ";Tliat Man; Your Husband"
in the February Ladies' Home Journal.
A good proportion of the heartbreak of
early married life is due to the ferment
of this knowledge. The poor child
whose lover gave up ids clears and his
(dub with such angelic meekness, finds
that her husband can smoke like a
chimney, and leave her alone nights in
order to spend the evening with his men
Iriends. She imagines that ho cares less
for her than he did. which is a mistake,
iv most eases; seven out of ten
men love their wives belter than their
sweethearts. It is simply that her pres
ence is not the absorbing excitement
that it was when love was new. The
chances are that thu wife is become a
dozed limes more necessary to the man
than ever the sweetheart could have
been. Be would feel Uer death far more
keenly, but he does not need to adjure
his heart to "'sit still" whenever his
fancy summons her image. In short,
she is become the bread of existence In
place of the elixir. Now, most of us
who have sense would prefer to be
broad rather than elixir; but there is
no question that more fuss is made over
And How «li«- Title Grew Upon

The sobriquet "Old Hickory'? was
conferred upon Andrew Jackson by the
soldiers undor his comm and in 1813. II
was not an inspiration, but, a growth.
First of all, the remark was made by
I some soldier, who was struck by his
] commander's pedestrian powers that the
| general was "tough*" Next, it was ob
served that he was as tough as hickory.
Then he was c.illed Hickory. Lastly.
] the affectionate adjective "old" was
; prefixed, and the general thenceforth
I rejoiced in the complete nickname,
I usually the first-won honor of a great
commander. The general, how
I ever, is said to have told the
! following story of the origin
i of the epithet to one of his messmates:
i During the Creek war, when he was
suffering from a bad cold, his officers
! improvised a lent lor him, covered with
Hakes of hickory bark, under which he
slept comfortably. Next morning an
intoxicated hanger-on of the camp came
across the tent and, not knowing who
was in it, gave it a kick that tumbled
the structure over. As the angry old
hero struggled out of the ruins, the
toper cried out: "HellowlOld Hickory!
come out of your bark ami join us iv a
drink.'' The general could not help
joining in the laughter at the incident.
As he rose and shook the bark from him
he looked so touch and stern that the
spectators gave him a hearty "Hurrah
lor Old Hickory !" and the name clung
to him ever alter.
A TAKING TITLE]
j One Hint Creates Cariosity ami
Interest tho Rot.
There is n good deal of art in choosing
| a title for a book, and few novelists
I have been happier in their choice than
■ Mr. llowells. Thus, his latest fiction,
j "The Coast of Bohemia," is a suggestive
I and felicitous name, says Richard Bur
j ton in tin- literary column of iho Hart-
I find Couraut. One can imagine all
sorts of things about it, and yet not lie
I quite sure whether lie has struck the
I real thing. At any rate one thinks of
■ cool and salty breezes, of wastes of
i sand and roaring waves; until, sud
! denly, it occurs to him that Bohemia has
j no coast, and then he wonders what Mr.
llowells is talking about anyway. Mean
while the title has made an impression.
But the most successful novelist in se
lecting titles, according to Mr. Burton.
is Thomas Manly. Who would not
'. want to look into "A Pair of Blue
j Eyes," or know more of what happened
| "Under the Greenwood Tree" and "Far
From the Madding Crowd?" The latter
title is taken, of course, from Gray's
"Elecy," ami, says Mr. Burton, "Au
author who can borrow a fitting title
from the Bible, Shakespeare, the pray
er book, 'Pilgrim's Progress' or some
other familiar source, enjoys a double
advantage, since whoever once hears
the name of the book is nt once im
pi eased with the familiar phrase."
llowells has taken many titles from
Shakespeare— an example ill his recent
"Quality of Mercy;" while ihe Bible
has furnished Black with "A Daughter
of llelb," Besant with "Children of
Glbeon," and Hardy with "A Fao
diceati." Black's titles, "In Silk At
tire,'' "Madcap Violet" and "A Prin
cess of Thule"aro Interesting; so is
Besant's "ThlsSonof Vulcan." Reade's
"Never Too Fate To Mend" IS gOOtTf or
its familiarity, and "Hard Cnsh" would
appeal to any one: but the best named
novel in the language, says Mr. Button,
j is "Vanity Fair."

words of a wife and mother residing in

A dim light from an old lamp without
a chimney was just sufficient to render
darkness visible, and the air of, tlie
little hovel was so tilled with smoke
that it was wholly unfitted for inhaling.
At last Mr. Brown was dressed, and.
descending the rickety stairway, found
• himself in the open air. The night was
stormy, ami the snow fell in blinding
sheets upon his dark and gloomy path
way. As lie turned into Broadway he
was seized by lour masked men,
and hurried off to the Battery,
where he was forced into a
small boat and carried out to
a large one lying at anchor in the har
bor. Once on hoard he was stored away
in the lower part of the vessel and not
permitted to see any one tor ten days.
At the end of that 'time ho was allowed
the liberty of the vessel, but was not
permitted to converse with any of the
crew. lie was out on the broad ocean,
and knew not where lie was nor whither
he was going. For three years he was

subordinate position in a large milling
company, where his fidelity was recog

became the recipient of the highest
wages paid to any employe.
At the end of ten years lie had saved
up enough to return to his family, but
when his intention was made known,
the company, wishing to retain his
services, offered him an interest in the
business, and he became one of the co
partners, and as such was entrusted
with the entire management of the
affairs of the company. This position
he held for sixteen years, when; having
amassed an immense fortune, ho con

inquiries about his lost family without
gaining any information in regard to
them. At last he made up his mind to
return to his hotel and givo up the
search, but on his way lie met an old
acquaintance, from whom he learned of
their trials and sufferings since he had
last seen them. The child that was so
sick when tie left home died on the fol
lowing day of malignant scarlet fever,
and three days thereafter the other
child died of the same disease.
Mrs. Brown was thus left without
husband or child and thrown entirely
upon her own resources to support her
self, By hard work over the wash tub
and by occasionally sewing for the
neighbors she managed to keep the wolf
from the door. For years every knock
at the door, or footstep on the sidewalk,
she believed was made by her long-ab

to believe that he was dead, and
mourned, otily as a widow can mourn,
the death of her husband and protector.
At tho end of ten years she married a
man by the name of French 11. S.

lawyers in Minneapolis who will assist
the citizens in having the bill passed as
soon as possible. Mr. Merrill last even
ing reported that the two lawyers in
question were absent from Minneapolis.
lie was authorized to use his own judg
ment in securing such legal assistance
as he deemed necessary to assist in the
passage of the bill.
A committee was then named to take
charge of the correspondence and to in
vite the presence and co-operation of
every prominent resilient in the various
counties in the state. The committee
named consists of George T. Williams,
ol Aitken county; J. E. Cooley, of St.
Louis; C. A. Nye, of Clay; C. 11. Marr,
of Itasca; James (lardner, ot Crow
Wing, and Otto Kowalke, of fine.
The gentlemen who are in the city in
tend to remain an indefinite length of
time and will devote themselves en
tirely to lobbying in the interest of the
bill. Meetings will be held occasionally
at the call of Mr. Mark ham, who intro
duced the biii in the house, and perma
nent headquarters have beeu . estab
lished at the Windsor.
Said one of the prominent county offi
cials of fine county who was present
at the meeting last evening: &3S
"We are determined to see this bill
passed this time and this great steal
irom the taxpayer put an end to.
Why, in my county alone the railroads
control 7ui),()00 acres of land and pay
not a cent for the privilege. If a farmer,
or two or three farmers, whose land is
adjacent lo railroad laud, makes an
improvement in the way of a road
or a bridge or anything else the railroad
property is increased so much in value
without an effort on their part. Yet
the farmer is taxed for the increased
value of his land, while the railroad
slaps on the advanced price per acre on
its property and itojs on defrauding
the state. We wi nt to put them on tiie
same basis as any oilier landholder, and
they shall pay the same taxes. 1 under
stand the rai. roads will make a hard
light on the measure, but they will lind
a solid opposition, .uut an opposition
