One of the real reasons of dlvorce1 of interest between men and women of this country is that women do not take an interest in their husband's business. Business bores most American women. We are too idealistic and too intellec tual to care for its sordid details. Busi ness does more than bore us; sooner or later the average woman grows to dislike business, and for a good reason, it is her rival in her husband's interest and affections, says the writer of an article entitled "The Inconsequential American Woman," in Appleton'a America is full of sad-eyed and well dressed women who complain that their husbands' lives they would stare business" that they have no interest left for anything else. Jf you were to suggest to these women that they had once been given a chance to share in their h usbands' lives they would stare at you in surprise. It would be useless to tell such a woman that she might have been a consulting partner In her husband's business had she wished. To this she has the reply, "Man ought to leave his business cares in his office." That Is, a man's brain should be neatly divided into two parts; he should be able to switch off the thoughts which have occupied his business hours the way in which one extinguishes an elec tric light. He should at the same mo ment switch on the other half of his brain where should burn brightly with affection for his wife, love of amuse ment and desire for that kind of relax ation which his wife enjoys. The great majority of men have been made to be lieve that they should not "bring busi ness home," so great Is the power of reiterated suggestion. They actually think that it would not please them to have their wives take an intelligent in terest in their pressing affairs. In accordance with plans of the war department, Surgeon General O'Reilly has recently enlisted a large number of the most skilful and noted surgeons and physicians in an army medical re serve corps. The physicians were drawn from all over the country, a few here and a few there, and were chosen solely for their ability. In time of peace they will receive no compensa tion, although they may be called upon for consultation or advice. In time of war they will receive the regular pay of their rank, which will be lieutenant, major, lieutenant colonel and colonel. This, however, is no temptation to meu of such a class. TItey have allowed themselves to be enlisted In the re serve corps solely as a matter of patri otic duty, and for the purpose of trengthening and improving the army medical service. The Romanes lecture which Presi dent Roosevelt has been chosen to de liver at Oxford university in 1910 is given under the provisions of a bequest of the late George John Romanes, an eminent biologist. The lectureship was founded in 1S91 for the purpose of giv ing the Oxford students an opportunity each year to hear a man of general em inence in art, literature or science, or one who had special claims for distinc tion in discussing some subject of high interest at the time. The first lecture wag given by Gladstone. Among his successors have been Holman Hunt, Huxley, John Morley and Ambassador Bryce. Next year Mr. Balfour, the for mer Eritlsh premier, will give the lecture. Count Boni De Castellane has with drawn bis suit against his former wife for alimony. Considering that she ob tained the divorce, the withdrawal of a demand for support la not altogether magnanimous; but it may be regarded so by himself and family, as the Ameri can girl who had nothing in their eyes to entitle her to the honor of an al liance with them but her money was given distinctly to understand that was all she was married for. But this sor did picture of Tulgar greed is not de terring other American heiresses from tempting the same fate. One of the little tragedies of the Boxer uprising in China has just come to light. The young American woman who painted the portrait of the late em press dowager wrote recently of the sittings, and mentions the long finger sails ef her distinguished subject. In the hurried flight from Peking they were injured, and had to be cut, and the artist remarks in a tone which sug gests a sigh, "They were only about three inches long when I painted the picture." Tragedy ifx New Jersey. A woman going from one room to another In her house met the harmless, necessary cat carrying a mouse; whereupon the wom an screamed and fell dead. The story, however, la Imperfect. -The scream must have startled and surprised the cat, and what we are really curious to know is whether the mouse escaped?
