A neglected wife is a common evil. You have the incom parable riches of youth. Glory is being,young. Give your life to your hoys and do not despair. Ix>t all of your span* [ time be filled with work, compelling work that needs all of your attention. L Physical exhaustion will overpower mental agony. F Fourteen years ago 1 came here after having lost n good, loving husband, a fortune and my health. My mind was nearly a blank from sorrow.

Apras not young like you, so prayed fof death, but tried to BTve for the sake of my boy. » Some one like you may realize my state, for I had lost all in terest in life. I went to churches, theatres, concerts, caba rets, yes. even into the side door of saloons, not to drink, but to aee if I could become disgusted, and so bo awakened to life.
