Indifference Ply Havoc With Happi

The foe of married happiness is lu
ntteutiou. The real wrong to the wife.
the real failure of the husband, is
wheu be becouu's unconscious of what
she i doing for him and what she is
in herself. At t'rst her ministries and
her affection are delightful to him.
Then jxThaps they become a thing of
course received, enjoyed in a fashion,
but hardly thought of. And some
times, though nut so frequently, the
wife becomes untboughtful of her hus
band. Perhaps Into most marriages there
cree;s on one side or on both some
thing of this ludiTereare. Husband
and wife live together In the chiefly
external relation. He is the breadwin

brilliant eruption of lava, the light of
which, it was reported, could be seen a
hundred miles away. Where the lava
flowed through the forest it left curi

bridges and great vases. These vases
were formed by the lava piling itself
about some lofty tree trunk, burning
