Why such a tragedy in al most every home? Why young lives are blighted, and strong hearts crush ed? Why so many shattered hopes'.' And why many tender loving hearts' are turned to hate and scorn for the marriage vow ? If marriage is a fail ure; and we are liberal enough te admit it is, to a great e xtent, we are to blame. At this age men ami women are very thoughtless, ami In their greed for easy sailing in this life, and through their passionate desire's to be appeased, they rush pe-l mil and take upon themselves the obligation of husband and wife, and father and motherhood. They only see the side of the road the sun shines on and they look not upon the shadows that will overtake them at the cross-roads. They fall , to count up the cost, and the 'ideas' and things common in their lives so, essential to their future happiness.! They fail to look for, and find those j traits of character and tendencies i that, go to make their destiny. The! whole world seems to be void In r. ! great measure of the happiness and divine union that should exist be tween husband and wife. Among all i classes of people, regardless to race ! or color or previous conditions, high j and low, rich and poor, learned and : unlearned, refined anil unrefined, the cause and effect are the same. i Happiness 'is not bought w ith mon-, ey or earthly possessions alone, for the person w ho finds an empty void i in their lives. They hunger and long , for something higher and more last-, ing a loving and congenial blending of another l'ife into theirs. Happi ness and contentment are bought w ith deeds of love, thought fulness and sympathy, patience, suffe ring, endur ance and loving kindness, which should flow through us from the i great loving heart of God, who di- rects Holy union of man and woman. Marriage is a failure because men ! and women are alike, foolish and giddy. They follow, and are capt-i- vatcd by the false 'Instead of the ! true, the clamor for the shining ! brass, and not the pure gold. They are blind, and do not try to see and ' understand the character, principles and tendencies, nor do they seek tc j find out and understand the idea of the person they are about to take !.- fi. r.U ... me ine voyage n uu. i uev hiii eu search for the real soul mate, that the wise Father has prepared for them. Thev do not seek to find out their inner nature, and the things they must endure. They fail to get into each others own little world, and weave their little web of love and confidence. They should become acquainted with the invisible person the hidden likes and dislikes that are so vital to tneir tuture nappines; and well being. People fail to re alize how sacred the tie. that should blind, and In haste they make the fatal leap, like a man walking in his sleep, fails to feel his way. They bind upon themselves the hurdensoii' yoke of matrimony In haste, to re pent al leisure. "And as la-t. liteth like a serpent and stingetl like an atter." Sadly they awake and come to themselves with awe when its al! too late. The finer i natures have werped. their charac ter shaken, their nerves wrecked hopes shattered, their sweet anil gentle dispositions impared. and the y tinil themselves wandering in t!' valley of despair, without the star of hope to lead tl i-m. They find themselves defeated in their own efforts to attain happine ss, because they failed to study, learn and understand the bidden mysterie in each other. These dreadful oond'tions exist be cause so many of our people are un equally yoked together. They diff-r in ideas, tastes anil fancies, the r sympathies are not in the same channel, nor their iedas of living the same, and as a result, one become" simple. the other wise, one lias no moral honor, the other has the integrity of a giant. One loves home, religion, books, music, friends, flow ers and birds, while the other has no intcre t in any of them, their ideas of a perfect life of harmony and companionship, are as different lis autumn and spring. Hence, after passionate and selfish motives have been satisfied, the thrill of congenial companionship is lost, and each of the'r lives become morbid, happiness flee as a b:rd to the mountain. Onlv eternity can tell of the failures and broken hearts. (To be continued next week.') Wm. WILSON. 2(101. Cochran St.. Dallas. T.xas.
