On the other hand, U may be urged that woman having relatively little t bance to philander la U tier able to specialize In the atudy of the one heart whloh fate accords her.

Dear Madam: If all marriage were ths rexukt of ths dictate of nature, or the secret instinct of sympathy, nothing oould ha mora dellsjhtful snd hvsttng than ths bond of matrimony.

The demeanor toward ths world Is agreeable and obllatng: bet In dswnswtlc Ufa tha mask Is Who an off. and an Individ ual appears such as he or she really la. Hence, it is Incredible how much a wife has ton hear from a huahand who Is capricious, haughty, choleric, dyspeptic snd Intraotsbls: or what a aensthle husband has to sndure from a silly, unreasonable, suspicious snd sggTsvatlng wife. Patience Is sn Indispensable virtus to t his srtst No one is free from Impevfenrlona. both of mind and body, and both huahand snd wife will have to hear Willi, overlook snd often forgtv aaoh other their sthoTtoomlrura And neither may call himself or herself the hoa.
