Whenever there is trouble and I
can't give any relief or remedy, it
distresses me, especially when the
troublo is of a domestic character.
Now here is a letter from a man who
says, "I know a man--a-neighbor
who is of a warm, affectionate, pas
Wionate nature and loves his wife to
distraction, but she is calm and cold
and conservative by nature and,
therofore, indifferent to his caresses,
and whenever he vonturos to kiss
her and put his arms about her,ehe
repels him with such expressiorld as,
lOh, Tom, get away, don't bther
ne.' She is pure, good womn and
lovo her husband in her way, but
he comes honLo --tirbd or disap
pointed .With' his day's work. The
j1VSioflIow is really pining away
and languishing for lack of love
for reciprocity, as it were, and can't
got it. Now, what is the remedy ?
Can't you bring your universal phil
osophy to bear upon this case and
solve the problem ?"
No, I cannot. I am helpless.
Nothing but time will equalize and
harmonize that couple. I am afraid
their nion was a misfit but he took
her fqF better or worse and must be
feegniled. In fact, he ought to be
thankful in theso degenerate days
that he has fgupd 4 pure good

11ltuous in her love as he would
like her to bo, But tho is a good
doctor. Time will assuago him
down some iind will tone her up
me, for a man and his wife get
more and more alike a. the years
roll on. There were some good
friends at my house last night and
seriously read to them this letter

"Maybe he smoked and his breath

The writ of mnandamrus is a far
reaching and effectual process."
Well, of course, the conversation
drifted to the topic of May and De
oomber mairiages;' with grooms of
more than three-score and ten and
brides of tender years. We all
iigraed that if such a groomi had
anythingr to leave such a b,nide be
s'dcqjis name and would depart
t)if4 life in a reasonablo timo, sho
was justified in marrying him. But
in the first place, the property should
be in sight the "quid pro quo" and
it should be fixed, set tied, dowered,
dovetailed, clinched n pon her, and
there should be an implied contract
that he should die in strict accord
anco with the death rato, the exp,oe
tation laid down in tho life insur
ance !-bles. Indeed, if the Into fro.
quency of old men marrying young
women is to be multiplied to an
alarming extent, there should be os
tablished a death insurance offico so
that the young girl could go to it and
got a policy insuring the old man's
death in a limited time, and if he
didn't die within the time, the com
pany should pay her so much as she
insured for-say $5,000 or $10,000
or $20,000, as the case may be.
With the money of course she could
live decently and even secure a di
vorce on the ground of fraud-fraud
in not dying according to hope and
expoetation and an implied promise.
Why, I know a lady who married an
old man twenty-eight years ago.
He was sixty and she but twenty and
as sweet and pretty as a pink. lIe
was rich and sickly and agreed to
settle on her $30,000, to be paid at
his death. He looked like he would
die in a year, but, bless your souls,
my swoot young sistors, he is living
yet and she looks noarly as old as
he doos. jjqr bloom of youth is
gone. When sbo married she was
an orphan and soon became worso
than an orphan, and she is cildloss.
Wh4t a ipistako ele made. What a
fraud Iyas perpetrated upon her.
What a wreck of lirtbly happiness,
Young girls, bewaYR 'fljese unions
are not according to nature and they
shock the judgment and tho sonti

enough to take those onerablo wid

vritten to Col. Tho,m. W. Holloway by Mr.
Wilmor Atkluxon, l'roprietor of The
Farm .Journal of Philadelphia.
My Dear Sir: The making of
money is part of the gonius of an
American, but for the saving of it he
is not so conspicuous. Imprudence
and extravagance aro wofully appar
ont. The inculcation of habits of
saving promotes thrift, industry and
indopendenco. It lessens extrava
ganco and the chances of want and
poverty in old ago and sickness. To
stimulate saving by offering easy op.
portunitios and needed security to
millions striving to be provident, and
millions more thoughtlessly improvi
dbt, is worthy of the loftiest. states.
The prime requisite to induce
methodical saving is the convenient
opportunity of depositing small
sums as they are received or are
available before they burn a hole
through the pocket., and aro spent
for something not necessary and per.
No less important is a guaranty of
undoubted security. This is lacking
with individuals, or oven with cor
porations, who often, for the sake of
larger gains, resort to operations
which have ended in disaster and
ruin. The safety of tho dollar put
away is moro ilportapt thn tho re.
turns it ;Aay bring in the wiay of in.
terest. A placo near at hand whore
a dollar may be deposited, and where
it is absolutely against. the burglar,
the tlief, oad the temptnti.>ns of the
saloon - koepor, must. ovory whero provo
a strong inducement to naving.
The National anks du not and
cannot fill this need. A National
bank can only be started in towns of
a cortainl pira now far above the
averago of the country village. Then
they will not tako very small ac
counts, and do not allow interest on
those which might be worthy of their
The established saving finds and

Now England the averago distance
from thOe postoffico to tho nearest
savillgo bank is 10 miles, in the Mid

States 33 mile., in gQ Westerm
