No gentler or kindler spirit ever left its clay tenement to awake in a brighter world, where no sor row or anxious care can mar its happiness, and where loved ones are "over there" to welcome her. Those who knew her best knew her simple and loyal character; her zeal and love for her church; her kindly ministrations to friends she loved; her facility as a ready writer, and her unselfish, genial and social nature. Surely no one could bet ter meet the greeting of "well done good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of thy Lord." The tomb may enclose her frail body, but like the broken and shattered vase, "You make break, you may shatter the vase if you will, but the scent of the roses will hang round it still"—surely sweet and kindly memories must linger round the memory of one meek and gentle in manner, loveliness, sister and brother survive to mourn her loss.

We don't manage them down here. 1 have been married forty-three years ! and such a thing as managing my 1 wife never occurred to me. I didn't, marry her for that. It is very weil to talk about managing a horse or a railroad, but the word is a reflec tion on woman's character. A wife is a partner, a helpmeet She helps to meet the family expenses and to make life worth iiving. Managing a wife is a bulldozing business, and that is just what brings about so many divorc wife who has to be manage ! u\ not a wife. Mr. Beecher said ; :ia t the first thing to be born of fceairhy parents. And so the best way to manage a wife is not to marry one who has to be managed. As Bob said when he had served out his sentence in the chain gang; "Boss, de best thing for you to do when you git dar is—not to go dar." Woman was the last and best work of the Almighty. If Adam evoluted, she didn't. She came fresh from her Maker's hand, and was created to elevate man. How she should manage him is a fair question, but how he should manage her is ridic ulous. It is a case of "redactio ad absurdum," as the lawyers say. The pure, trusting, innocent being ties herself, binds herself to this evoluted son of Adam as fast as Prometheus was bound to the rock, and as soon as the chains are fastened he begins to look around and inquire: How shall I manage her?" Manage her like you did before you married her. That's all. Never let her know that she is chained. Companionship is the word—com panionship that heners the man A < i more than it does the woman: she is of a higher rank in in morality, in beauty, link between him and the of for F purity, She is a angets, and will take us all to Heaven if wi we will let her. Three hundred white convicts in one chain gang in Georiga and not a woman, think of it. But file weeping and sorrow are hers—sorrow for bus bands and sons who have fallen. The pain and suffering in bringing us into the world are hers. The care and anxiety of raising the chil dren are hers. Job speaketh of the dark watches of the night when deep sleep falleth upon a man; but it doesn't fall upon a weary mother with a fretful or sickly child. I know whereof I speak for ten have come to us and she raised them and never murmured. It has been a world of trouble, but she endured it. It is ail over now and the crop is laid by and she deserves pension both from earth aud Heaven. She never thought about managing me, but she has done it. It is well enough to taik about taming a shrew, but managing a woman—never. If there were a whole book written upon it it would go dead—stillborn—for a gentle man wouldn't if he could, and a tyrant couldn't if he would. There may be Petruchios, but there are no Kates. T Ï E.
