Jona- i than was a rood man. He lored his 'wife, and as meant to be a' rood has- ' hand, bet his idea of what conttitnted a rood hnttaad was Identical with the j slave owner's Idea of what constitutes 'ji rood xaast6r7ne'thourfct he had dcaeJiIs lull, duty .by is-wife when ha saw that she had enoush to eat, a f house to lite' la,' and such clothes as he coneidered.prcper to rlre her. . t- 'Tor the rest, he expected, his wife to hear hia children, perform all the duties of a perfectly .trained '.tpper serraet,; he, presort . rrattTul. to him ; tn mn tint hm did for her. and to look tmon him ae a nperior sad rod- like creature whom she waa glad to obey. He nerer coneelTed of her as harlar any life apart from his own, or think ing a thought that differed from xus. And it nerer entered his mind to do anything actirely.to make her happy. Mary Adams belonged to the same generation as her husband. She had nerer seen a woman regarded aa any thing but an Inferior creature, whose privilege It waa to minister to the pleasure of man and so although the rebelled Inwardly at the way ahe.waa treated, she accepted it with heroic patience as the inescapable tot of wo man. She got along in peace with her hus band because she bowed her head with meekness to his iron rule, for It had been bred in her that a wife must submit to her husband. Volume 2: Thirty years ago John Adame mar ried Mamie Brown. John Adams' eulogists were nerer weary of saying that he was a chip off the old block, and a worthy son of his worthy father, and It was true. John' held to his father's rigid code of honesty in his business dealings He also subscribed to his father's riews concerning wo men. He treated his wife as he had al ways seen his father treat his mother. He had never seen hla" mother , con sidered, so he thought It quite unnec essary to.be considerate of the, feel ings of a mere wife, or to take any pains to glre her pleasure. Her part in life .was to bear children, and make a' man a comfortable home. . - Tm the head of this house, was the phrase that . was oftenest on v his lips, and he made of himself a domes tie tyrant before whom his -wife and children trembled. .; . John belonged to his father's gen eration domestically,- but Mamie . did not belong to her mother's' generation. She belonged to ;a generation of wo men who had taken one step forward and' who had begun to revolt against the serfdom of wives, and to see the dawn of a aew day. of freedom for women, v-.;' r.r .. Mamie did not submit with the pa tience that her; ! mother-in-law had shown to her 'husband's tyrannies. She fiercely rSbelled against It.- - She fought, bsck' tooth and nalL, To a degree, Mamie' was bound br the old order because divorce .'.was stilt looked upon askance, and she had been- trttned to no 'gainful occuDa- tlon, and she was financially depend- et upon her husband. 8o she stayed with aim. hating him ae only a elave can hate an unjust master, and their home was a place of nerer ending turmoil and strife. Volume 3: Fire years sgo Jack Adams and Marian Brown were married. Jack was a fine fellow, but he followed fa the footsteps of his father and grand father, and began to treat his wife as he had seen his mother and grand mother treated. 1 am the head of this house," he declared Imperiously. "Nonsense," laughed Marian, "we are matrimonial partners with equal authority." 1 demand that you shall obey me as my mother and gradmother obeyed their husbands," insisted Jack. . 1 shall respect your wishes aa far as possible, but ft is childish to talk of me obeying you. I am a rrown woman. Intelligent, educated, not a fool or a slare to giro blind obedi ence," replied Marian. That was the beginning of the struggle between them that ended with lore lying dead at their feet. Jack was determined to conquer. Ma- nan, to oreak fier spirit, to force her into the attitude of subservience that he had seen his mother snd grand mother occupy to their husbands. He really loved Marian, but he. believed that a husband should dominate his wife completely. . Marian was as strong ss he, as cour ageous. Life was tolerable to her only on, terms of equality with her husband., This, he would- not grant her, and so. between them ensued the tragic battle of two "people who love each other sal yet who are urged on by forces. stronger than they are the woman by progress, the' man by tradi tion, and. the blind arrogance of the male. . . . 1 ; She could not go. back. . He would not move forward. She could not en dure the 'meekness, of Jils grandmoth er, nor live in thatnrmoll and - squab bles that his mother did,- She waa a trained business woman,' able to make ner own living, and so she. left .him. it xs Decsuse women hsvevmored forward Into a new world where men's Imaginations have, not followed them that divorce is tnereasing. - l (Copyright 191T. br The Wheeler srnaicata. jmli ' At a. well attended meeting held at the Palama Settlemeat last erenlng, new officers were elected by the Pal ma nilplno Club, as fellows: PresV dent, C Estante; vice-president, Pedro csqueras: secretary, Leoa Poreada; fhatrman program committee,- Mr. Qnerobia; athletic fsptslns, Leon Co aejar and Mr. TubCUha; advisor, w.
