The fate of a North Carolina wo
man, an . awful tragedy where a
young husband killed himself, and
for the benefit of my lady friends I'll
read a little of it to you, read tho let
ter ho left telling his reason for tak
ing hui rife: "My wife ls the dearest
woman tn the world and one ot the
best and I have loved her more than
I can ever tell, and we were BO hap
py-happy tn the love wo had for
each other, a love we never doubted,
never for a moment until-one day In
our heart to- heart talk I told her of
] my youth, of my ups and downs, the
I Jolly courtships I had with a lot of!
girls, and of the few who had given]
mo the cold shoulder. I bad quite'
a romance in several cases, but I had!
found little Joy in lt all, and was sol
glad to know there would be no moro
of it for me. In the little narrative
my wife wiis deeply interested and at
the conducion put her arms about my
nock and kissed mo time and again,
and I waa so happy. 1 had roached
the noon-tlmo, the brightest moment
of my life, bright maybe because of
the darkness following. For in store
for me waa n night and an hour of
pitch darkness, tho hour that my life
would lose til its brightness and I
would crave death. No sooner had I
finished the little sketch of 'my own
life when my wife said she had want
ed so much to tell me some of her
Joys and sorrows. She began with a
'ufcppy childhood, surrounded .with
comforts and pleasures; then of nor
school days and their ending; then
began tho new life of loving and be
ing loved; new bocause of the new
friends ?he bsd made; how devoted
some or them were, and how she rev
erenced ?heir devotion; later Ibjjt
reverence had found a deeper hold
and she learned to love. Then ol!
unthoughted she wielded tho dagger
that pierced my heart, and drew thc
blood from my veins, and loft roy
body only a lump of clay. In tho on?;
woman who waa all the world to icc
1 must learn from ber own lip* : ?rh?
not ber first love. More nt ill 1 wan
not her second. In her
talking mood she toid or t
before myself to whom she b?M coi?
fessed her heart's feeling. She had
said to them In all Its earnestness.
'1 love you.' 11 waa bet- third love,
the oply lasting one. The preceding
two had loved only for a whils, each
leaving her very nearly heart broken,
bot tor me, because of my being so
true sh? loved me dearer than lire.
But there was na need to finish ber
?tory, no need;to speak of hearts love
and devotton to roe, not now. The
knowledge that I was not her first
luve iuriivd my heart to a heart of
stone: all my love her turned to bit
ter hatred. I could no longer live
with tiiis woman, my reverence had
taken the ttand of bitter scorn and ?
would rid myself of her. Dut how?
1 knew of but one way and that was
death. 1 cannot kill her. She had
I done nothing to deserve death, but I
I wi*..id. tn.ke ?ny cw:; life. I will d?c
j for death ls better than living with a
woman who had one' time in life loved
I The' paper stated the maa was found
j dead in his room' with this noto in
his hand and when I read lt 1 said to
I myself, If every one who had come in
on the third run were to commit sui
cide, the dead would have to bury the
dead. And wasn't it a pity ?ha? wo
man dtdnH get one of the first two.
But finding herself a widow made it
not BO bad after all. Then, no doubt,
eho realized she had* better not have
talked so fast. But one thing su**e,
Bho couldn't have married a wor.'-j
chance. Do you know I feel like
wringing a man's neck that would
talk that vft'. But then, there ls no
need killing* him while all men think
alike. I don't mean they want to die
overy time, but they must always be
tho first. Tho idea! Hating a wo
man becauso she had confessed to
loving some ono before. Of course
she was unlucky not to got her first
love, but ?vhat about this man? His
wife was about the fortieth ono he
had loved and she had never com
plained. But women do be euch
fools. This woman knew he had
flirted with women and felt sure sev
eral had rejected him. He went so
far aa to tell her he had courted oth
er men's wives, and the only censure
was a hand clasp and a smile of deep
affection. s 0
Yea, woroon, what fools we be.
Thia woman ls ono of us, always
ready to forgive but not daring to
ask forgiven ness. Men are hatefal
no doubt about lt, they don't wont
to marry where there has beeb pre
vious courting. They are too afraid
thc girl has loved before. They don't
Want to marry where courtships are
common. Few women realize the
horror meu have of old love affairs
In ?heir wives history. Tho well
known gallantry of men before mar
riage is only c'iuallcd by their Jeal?
ousy afterward, and the best thing
for a ?vife is to be eure her husband
can't pick up many of her old admir
ers. A man always baies a formet
lover of his wife, and no man ls fail
to a woman when his Jealousy ie
aroused and it takes very little tc

meta and women are sp different, ot
BO differently judged, that we are
prone to feel that thejudge is not the
same. A man ls not jud ged by his
purity while a woman ls. Few en
gagements would be-1 broken off be
cause of the discovery that the pro
posed husband waa not ali right, but
not so with tho woman, the least
doubt and she finds herself alone. But
thia matter of virtue among sweet
hearts never reaches the sad stage
until after marriage. Then the mat
lug ot tho dove and the vulture be
comes a serious problem, made more
serious by thc one-sided view that is
taken by both husband and wife.
While I censure tho husband severely,
I do believe a woman's lack of self
esteem drives him to his way of think
ing. Wo tire of the old, old saying:
.'Tin; wuumn must bear and forbear,
while the man dares but not once docs
he forbear." True enough, a wo
man's purity is her only shield, but
it is little heeded by a man sunken
deep in sin. He doesn't mind coming
home after a night of debauching;
come with the filth clinging to him,
inside and out he ls vile, his soul ls
blackened, his heart is hardened, his
brain ls weakened, until he ls only
a babbler while Li? body scents o?
the carrian crow; and all In all he
is dead in sin and shame. But the
tics are not broken, -and ?he woman
finds herself clinging to him still.
The marriage vow ls not forgotten
and the good wife faces ber . obi (ga
llons. With a heart full of love she
makes the best of the situation and
trios day after day to make a success
of tho failure. She does her best,
never once giving a thought that he
might have loved' a dozen before he
knew her. Maybe married him him
after all her girl friends her rejected
him. This lina often been the case
She was'taot only his third love, bul
the very last one.
Tea, Mammy Dinah, sure enough
"wo women do ha such fools."
