The story of the Adams divorce is
a novel in three volumes. Let us
read it.
Volume 1:
Sixty years ago Johnathan Adams
was married to Mary Brown. Jona
than was a good man. He loved his
wife, and he meant to be a good hus
band, hut his Idea of what constituted
a good husband was identical with the
slave owner's idea of what constitutes
a good master. He thought he had
done his full duty by his wife when
he saw that she had enough to eat, a
house to live in, and such clothes as
he considered proper to give her.
For the rest, he expected his wife
to bear bis children, perform all the
duties of a perfectly trained upper
servant, be properly graU'ul to him
if r all that be did for h'r. and to
I 1'X'k upon hi:;; as a Fuperior and god
! like creature wh-m she was plad to
! "bey.
j He never conceded of hpr as having
'any life apart from his own. or think
iinK a thoucht that differed from his.
And it never entered his mind to do
anything actively to make her happy.
Mary Adams belonged to the same
Feneration as her husband. She had
neter ne'-n a woman regarded as any
thing but an inferior creature, whose
privilege it was to minister to the
pleasure of man, and so although she
rebelled inwardly at the way she was
treated, she accepted it with heroic
patience as the inescapable lot of wo
man. irhe got along :n peace w ith 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 Adams mar
ried Mamie Rrown. John Adams'
eulogists were never 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 hiR
business dealings. He also subscribed
to his father's views concerning wo
men. He treated his wife as he had al
ways seen his father treat his mother.
He had never seen his 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 give her pleasure Her part
in life was to bear children, and make
a man a comfortable home.
' I'm the head of this house," was
the phrase that was oftenest on his
lips, and he made of himself a domes
tic 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 new day of freedom for
Mamie did not submit with the pa
tience that her mother-in-law had
shown to her husband's tyrannies.
She fiercely rebelled against it. She
fought back tooth and nail.
To a degree, Mamie was bound by
the old order because divorce was
still looked upon askance, arid she had
been trained to no gainful occupa
tion, and she was financially derend
et upon her husband. So she stayed
with him. hating him as only a slave
can hate an unjust master, and their
home was a place of never ending
turmoil and strife.
Volume 3:
Five years ago Jack Adams and
Marian Brown were married. Jack
v. as a fine fellow , but he followed in
the footsteps of his father and grand
father, and began to treat his wife as
he had seen his mother and grand
mother treated.
"I am the head of this house," ha
declared imperiously.
"Nonsense," laughed Marian, "we
are matrimonial partners with equal
"1 demand that you shall obey me
8 3 my mother and gradmother obeyed
their husbands," insisted Jack.
"I shall respect your wishes as far
as possible, but it is childish to talk
of me obeying you. I am a grown
woman, intelligent, educated, not a
fool or a slave to give blind obedi
ence," replied Marian.
That was the beginning of the
struggle between them that ended
with love lying dead at their feet.
Jack was determined to conquer Ma
rian, to break her spirit, to force her
into the attitude of subservience that
he had seen his mother and 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 as 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 and 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
She could not gt back. He would
not move forward. She could not en
dure the meekness of his grandmoth
er, nor live in the turmoil and squab
bles that his mother did. She was a
trained business woman, able to make
her own living, and so she left him.
It is because women have moved
forward into a new world where men's
imaginations have not followed them
that divorce Is increasing.

When a Feller Needs a Friend
Keep The Hands Young
Osvt tex othct bat we were speak lays his mark there more plainly
Ing about the care of the hands, and than In any crow's-foot on the face,
the fact that occupation and social I know one exquisitely mannered
position both showed most plainly and gowned old lady reputed to be
on the hands. A woman can have a worth millions. She is one of the
social leaders of a large city. She is
always tne very picture or per
fection but her hands show that she
once scrubbed floors, and that her
parents for many generations did the
same. Now scrubbing floors is an
honorable task, but It certainly does
not make the hands pretty.
Keep your hands young, even if
yoa neglect your face. You have a
pair of eyes and an intelligent brain
to redeem &ny flaws there, but you
have nothing to hide the -age or
homeliness of your hands. Keep
them massaged. If you think they
need It; protect them in work, and
from weather, keep them manicured,
keep them dainty. No matter how
hard you work, you can do it, for the
care of the hands takes but little
time. Tour hands and your chil
dren's will show the benefit.
Size matters little. A large hand
usually denotes a generous nature,
and can be made to look artistic
intellectual. One large, odd-looking
luring on the little finger will make
i large hand seem much smaller, and
ood nails redeem any hand.
