I took the re sponsibility of telling husbands how they ought to trest their wives and, thongh I notice that some of them rqOIBMFD A LITTLE IH THEIB PEW, they endured it well I now lake the re sponsibility' of telling how wives ought to treat their busbaa is. I nope vour do mestic alliance was so happily formed that while married life may have revealed in him some fraikies that you did not suspect, it has also displayed excellen cies that m"te then overbalanced them I oppoa that if I could look into the h'art of a bun ired wives here present snd ask them where is the kindest snd best mil they know of, snd they dared speak out, ninety nine out of a hundred of them would sty : "At the other end of th's pew." Though sometimes, you may have snapped each other up a little quick, 1 think the ' most of you- are as well paired as s couple of whom I hsve read. The wife ssid to her bnsband : i have made op my mind to be submissive nnteitbstsndiog all the mtsfortanea thai have come upon as.? Tbey had lo t their children, be had lost his bealih.sDd hence the income ot bis profession, snd the wife. had temporarily lost ber eyed sight. Yes," said the husband,' ought to b submissive. - LeV roe se what we have to submit 'o. First, we have a home; we can submit to that. Then we have rscb other; we can submit to thsl. Then we hare food snd raiment; we can submit to that. Tbea we have a great many friends we ran euhmttto that. We have a heavenly. Father. to pro vide for us" "S op I Stop!" said his wife, ' I will talk no more about submis sion. - . ' : i I hope, my sister, yon hsve married s man ss Christian anrt as well-balsnced so that. B-il if son were worsted in the coDjagal bargain, you . . CANNOT BB WOR3K OFF than this Abigail in m text. Her hu. band was coarse and ungrateful, an, Ine bria'e, for "on the very evening of her beroio achievement at the- foot ot the hill, where she captured a whole regi ment with her geuial snd strsgetic beha vior, sbe returned home and found ber husband so drunk tbst sbe could not tell him the story but had to postpone it un til the next dsy. So, my sister, I do not wsnt you to keep savins within yourself as I proceed : "That is the way to treat s jerfect husband,"., for you sie to te member that no wife was ever worse swindled than this Abigail of roy text A i tbe other end of berta'ile sat s mean, selfish, snsrling, contemptible sot, snd it she could do well for a dust srd, how ought you to do with that princely and splendid man with whom you are to walk tbe path of life? - - First, I counsel the wife to RKUPMBKR IN WHAT A SfVKRK AND TER' RiriC BtTTLK 0? Lir HKCl HCSBANO IS EKOAGKO. ' . Whether in professional or commercial or artiatio or mechsnical life, your bus hand is in a SoUerino if not a Sedan. It is a wonder that your husband has snv nerves or patience or snavliv Wt. ' To get a living In this cext to the last decade of the nineteenth century iw a struggle If be come home snd sit down preoccu pied,-you .ought to excuse him. If he do not feel like going nut tba night lor s wslk 'or entertainment, remember he has been ont all day. You ssy he ought to leave st his place of business his an noysnces and come home cheery. ' But if a man has been betrayed by a busi ness partner, or a customer has jockeyed him out ofa large bill of goods, or s protested no's bss been flung on his desk. or ' somebody has called bim a liar ana everything hai gone wrongfrom morn ing to night, be must hsve great genius and forget'ulneei if be do not bring some of .the perplexiiy home with bim Whrn yon tell me be ought to leave It all st tbe store or bark or shop, you miht as well tel) a storm on the Atlantic to stay put there and not touch the onset or ripple the harbor, member be is not over working so much for himself as be is working for you snd the children. It is the effect of bis success or defeat on the homestead thst causes bim the agitation. f be, most of men aler forty Ave years of sge live not for themselves but lor their families. They begin to ask them - 8?lves anxiously the question : (Now, if I should give out, what would become oi the folks at home ? Would mv children ever get their education? Would my wife hare to go out into the world to esrc bread for herself and our little ones? My eyesight troubles me, bow if my eyes should fail ? My bead gets d zzv. how if I should drop under apoplexy ? The high pressure of b-sines, life snd mechanical life and agricultural life lsl BOMB PRESSOR! Some time ago : a large London firm decided that if any of their clerks mar ried on a salary less than 150, that is 9750 a year, he should be discharged,! he supposi ion being that the temptaion night be too great for misappropriation Tbe large majority of families in Amer ica live by the utmost dint of economy, and to be honest and yet meet one's fam ily expenses is the appalling qiesiion tbst . turns tbe lire of tens of thousands of men Into martyrdom. Let the wife of the overborne and exhausted husband remember tbis.aod do not nag bim shout that and say you might as well have no husband, when the fact is he is dying, by inches that the house may be ket op. I charge also the .wife to KEtr HERSELF AS ATTRACTIVE AFTER HAR RIAQB ss she was before marriage. The reason that so often a msn ceases to love bis wife is because the wife ceases to be lov shle. In. many cases what elaboration of toilet before marriage and what teck lessness of appearance after.- The most disgusting thing on esrth is a slatternly woman.,vI mesn;a' womsn who never combs her hair until she goes ont, or looks like a fright ontitaomebody calls. That a msn married to one of these creatures stsys at home as little ss possi b'e is no wonder, v It is a wonder that such-a msn does . not go on s waging voyage. of three years and in a leaky ship . Cos ly wardrobe is not required; but, O woman, f yon are not willing, by all that ingenuity of rennemsnt can ef 'ect, to make yourself attractive to your husband, you ought not to complain i' be eeek in other society those pleasant surroundings which you deny bim. : Again. I charge you, never talk to others about the- frailties of your hue- bsntv Some people have a way, in bin ter, of. elaborately" describing to others tbe shortcomings or anbappy eccentrici ties of a husband or wife An, tbe world will find out soon enoueh all the defects of your-companion No need of your advertising them. . Better imitate those vorren who. having made a mistake in affiance, always have a veil to hide im perfections and alleviations of conduct to meution. We muet admit that there are rare cases where a wife csnnot live longer with her husband, and his cruel ties and outrsges are tbe precursors ol divorcement or separation. ; Bat until that day comes, keep the swful secret to yourself. K ep it from every being in the universe, except tbe God to whom you do well to tell your trouble. Trouble only a few years at most snd then you can go up on the other side of the grave snd r-syi '0 Lord,! kept the marital se cret.' Thou knowest bow well I kept it, and I thank 1 bee. that' the release bss come. Give me some place where I can sit down snd rest awhile from tbe bor rors of an embruted earthly alliance, be fore I begin the full raptures of heaven.' And orders will be sent out to the neber angels saying : "Take this Abigail right np to the softest seat in tbe best room o( the pa'sce, and let twenty of the bright' est sngela wait op her for tbe next thou ssnw yesrs." , ; . Further, I charge y oa, v.' LET THERE BB NO OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE with tbe conjugal relation. Neither neighbor or coufiiienlial mend, nor brother nor eis er, nor fsther nor mother have a right to some in here. Tbe mar ried gosip will come around and by the hour te'l yot bow she manages ber hns band. You tell ber plainly that if Bhe would attend to tbe affairs of ber house bold you will . attend " to yours. What damage . some people do- with their tongues ! Nature indlcatrs that the tongue is a dangerous thing, by the fact that is .shut in, fi'st by a barricade of teeth and then by the door of te lips. Une insidious talker can keep a whole neigh bortnod badlv stirred op - Tbe Apostle Peter excoriated these busy bodies in other people's mstters, snd St. Paul, In his letter to tbe ibessolisns and to Tim olby, given them a sharp dig, and tbe good housewife will he on the lookout for them snd never return their calls and treat them with coldest frigidity. . For thU reason belter keep bouse ss soon ss possible Some people are opposed to them, but I thank, God lor what are called flits in these cities. They pu. up s separate home within the means ot nearly oil the population. In your mar ried relations yon do not need any ad vice. If you and your .husband have not skill enough to gut al n$ well alone, with all the advice you can import you will get along 'worse. What yon want for your craft on this voysge is plenty of sea room. '., "I chargsyoni a)o, ; , : ' MAKE TOORSELF THE INTELLIGENT COM - PANION OF TODR UU4BIND. What with these' floods of newspapers and hooks there is no excuse for the wi'e's ignorance either about the present or past. If you have no more tban a bait hour every day for yourself you may Oil your mind, with entertaining and ueful knowledge .'Let the merchant's wife read op on all mercantile questions snd the mechanic's wife on all that per tains to bis style ot work, and tbe pro fessional, man's wire on all tbe legal or medical or theological or political dis cussions of the ' day.

I have Mot enough-of practical knowledge about bouse .adornment to know just what makes the d fference, but here is an opu lent house, containing all wealth of brie a brae, and of musical instruments, and of painting, and of upholstery, and yet there is in it a child-like Nova Zambia Another home, with one-twentieth part of the outlay, and small supply of art, inl cheapest piano purchasable, and yet, S you enter it, there comes upon body, .mind and sov-l a glow of welcome and satisfied and happy .domesticity. The rly art of making the most comfort a ' brightness out or toe means anord- e ,"eve7)rwiie snouTd studyr- AT THE 8IEOE OF ARQ03, Pyrr.bus was killed by the tile of a roof thrown by s woman, and Abimelech was slain by a stone thst a womsn threw from the tower of Thebez, and Earl Monlfort was destroyed by a rock discharged at him by a woman from tbe walls ot Tou- louse. But without any weapon save thai of her oold, cheerless household arrange ment any wre msy s.ay all the attractions ot a home circle. A wife and mother io prosperous circumstances and greatly ad' mired, was g;rng her cbiet lime to so cial life. The husband spent bis evenings away. The son fifteen yesrs of age, got tbe same habit, and there was a prospect that tbe other chifdren, as tbey got old enough, would take the same tarn. One day tbe wife aroused to the consideration that she had be1 ter save her hnsbsad and her boy. Interesting and stirring games were introduced into tbe house. Tbe mother studied np interesting things to tell her children One morning the son said : "Father, yoo ought to have been home last night. We bad a grand time. Such jolly games and snch interesttcg stories." This went on from night to night.and after a while the husband stay ed in to see wbat was going on, and he finally got attracted and added something of LU own to the evening entertain menta; and the result wss that tbe wife and mother saved her husband and saved her boy and saved herself. was not that an enterprise worth tbe attention ol the greatest woman that ever lived since Abigail at the foot of tbe rock arrested tbe tour hundred armed warriors f woman's MISSION. Do not, my sister, be d'zzied snd dis turbed by the talk of those who think tbe home circle too insignificant for a wo man's career, , and who want to get you out on platforms and in conspicuous enterprises. There are women who hsve a special outside mission, and do not dare to interpret me ss derisive of their Important mission. But my opinion is thst tbe womsn who can reinforce ber husband in the work of life snd rear her children lor positions of usefulness, is doing more for God and the race and her own happiness, than if she spoke, on every great pisiform snd headed a bun dled great enterprises. My mother never made a missionary speech in her life. and. at a missionary meeting I doubt whether she could hnve got enough coursge to vote aye or no, but she raised her son John, who has been preaching the gospel and translating religious literature in Amoy China, for abont forty years. Was not that a better thing to do? - . Compare such an one with one of these die-away, attitudinizing, frivolous, msrried coquettes of the modern drawing-room, her heaven an opera-box on the night of Meyerbeer's "Robert le Dia ble," the ten commandments an incon venience, tsklng ars nic to improve the complexion, and her appearance a con fused result of belladona, bleached hair, antimony and mineral scjiia, until one is compelled to discuss ber character and wonder whether the line between a decent and indecent life is, like the equator, an imaginary line. , ;, -i - WHAT TNE WORLD WANTS . now Is abont fifty old-fashioned mothers, women who shall realize that the highest, grandest, .mightiest institution on earth is tbe home- It Is not necessary that they should have the same old-lime man ners of tbe country fsrm bouse, or wear the old-fashioned cap and spectacles and aprons that her glorified ancestry wore ; but 1 mesa the Jold spirit which began with 'the Hsnnabs and the Mother Lois sod toe Abigails of Scripture daya, and was demonstrated ; on tbe homestead where some of as were resred, though the old house was tong ago pulled down, and the occupants scattered never to meet until in the higher home that awaits tbe family of the rigoleous. ' While there are . more good and faithful wives snd mothers now than there ever were, so ciety has got a wrong twist on tbis sub ject, and there are influences abroad that would make women believe that their sphere is outside instead of in3ide the bouse. HENCE IN WANT n0U?E30LDS CHILDREN IN STEAD OF A BLE9SINQ ARS A NUISANCE. It is a card case versus child's primer, carriage versus cradle, social popularity versus domestic felicity.. Hence infanti cide and ante-nstsi murder so common that all tbe physicians, allopathic, hydro' patbic, homeopathic and eclectic, are crying out in horror and it is Sims that tbe pulpits joined with thi me liual pro fession in echoing and re-echoing the thunder of Mount Sinai, which says: "Thou shalt not kili,'anl the Book of Revelation which says, "All murderers shall have their place in . the lake which burneth with Are and brimstone.", And the man or woman who takes life a min ute old will as certainly go straight to hell as the man or woman who destroys life forty' years old. .And the wildest, loudest shriek of Judgment Dty'will be given at the overthrow of those who moved in tbe high and respected circles of earthly society, yet decried; by their own act ss fsr as tbey could privfetelv effect it, the extermination ot the ad vancing generations, abetted in the hor rid crime, by a lot. of infernal qnacka with which modern medicine is infested.

Commander Dayman observed that the highest waves off the Cape" of Good Hope rose 20 feet, the gales which produce them extending oyer s distance of from 300 to 600 miles. loathe At lantio Ocean Dr. Sooreaby measured, .h waves with great, care and accuracy on different occasions. In March, 1841, he wrote: "In the afternoon' of this day I stood sometimes on the ssloon ieck pr cuddy roof watching the sublime spec tacle presented by the torbuleat waters. I am not aware tbat I ever saw the sea more' terribly ' magnificent. ;' Looking from ihe port paddle boxV he e&yet "I fosod i at least . dne-hajf ;. of the j waves which overtook and passed tbe ship wee fsr above the level of my eye. .Fre quently I observed long ranges (not acuminated peaks) extending 100 yardSj perhaps on one or both sideef tbe ship, tbe sea . then ' coming nearly right 'aft, which rose so high above , tbe visible horizon as to form an sngle estimated at two or three degrees, wbeh'thfl distance of tbe wsve summits was ' about 100 ysrds from the" observer. This measure of elevation was by no means enesm raon, occurring, I .should think, at lesst once in half a dozen waves. . Sometimes peaks of crossing or crests ot breaking seas would shoot upward at least' 10 tr 151 feet 'higher." The mean .highest waves, not including the broken or acu minated crests, Dr. , Scnresby estimate as rising abont 43 feet above ihe lever of the hollow occupied at tbe moment by the ship.
