THOSE MATRIMONIAL LAWS.
The solons are bothering themselves
overmuch with the matrimonial prob
lem this winter and their proposed re
forms will not proceed farther than a
pigeonhole, yet some of the laws pro
posed are worthy of mention. One of
the most remarkable of them is the
of a Connecticut brain. It
gives the bachelor an age ljmit of 40
years and after that he must pay $100
for his license if he would marry. The
intent of the bill is to cause men to ca

time of life he begins to look a little

TO LEGALIZE MURDER.
A bill has been introduced in the
Texas legislature providing that a man
shall be justified in killing anyone who
slanders his (the killer's) wife or any
female relative. It is hardly supposa
ble that such a bill can become a law,
even in Texas, for its effect would be
to license murder. "Slander" is a very
elastic word, and almost any man seek
ing another's life might trump up
against him a case of slander of some
of his feminine relativeshis sisters,
his cousins or his aunts, as well as his
wife, his mother or his daughters A
slighting remark, a careless word,
magnified as it often is by gossip,
would become an excuse for homicide,
although the speaker never intended
any harm. In the presence of such a
law, joking raillery or persiflage would
become exceedingly dangerous. Con
versation would be reduced to as sober
and set an aspect as it is in a court of
justice. I is probable that the pru
own family under
turers tjiat they "may shortly find but even then his silence might be con-
American manufacturers competing in strued into an insult, and he might oe
