Rest of Week
Rather than become an in
dolent, vicious creature of the so
ciety about her, Anne Wall gave
up her home and husband to re
turn to useful work. It meant a
great deal to sacrifice her family,
but Anne had no other recourse.
Her sacrifice was not in vain,
however. It brought about a
change In her husband. His eyes
were opened to the parasitical
character of many of the people
he knew. He learned that life
meant more than a mere idle
r.ound of so-called pleasure. He
began to take an interest In
worthy charities, and was finally
reconciled to his wife.
"Idle Wives" tells the story of
Anne and John, as well as the
stories of other Interesting people.
