ONE PROBLEM FOR A MARRIED WOMAN Every woman has to make the decision —will you live your life with your husband as one or as two? Will you interest yourself in the things he likes and make his life ea.-ier for him? The man who comes home to complaints about the cook and the grocery bill is getting mighty poor refreshment for a brain tired after the day's work. The man who comes home to a companion who can talk intelli gently and interestedly about the things In which he is interested has an ideal married life. It lies wholly in the wife's hands as to which of these conditions will prevail, for the men —poor, helpless creatures—cannot alter the condi tions of home life in this respect. _ Tho .9*117 and Sunday Si.ukanu Pre- s. 10 cents a week.

The train made good time as far as Pasco and then the man at. the throttle turned her loose. Before It had gone 10 miles it was running so fast that telegraph poles looked like elongated teeth of a fine comb and when the whistle cord was pulled for a station the engine would be five miles beyond before It had ceased to sound. "It was necessary to stop at Ritzville for water and a moment after the train had been brought to a standstill the conductor and brakeman, sitting In the cupola of the caboose, saw a dark object coming down the track toward them at lightning speed. "The men jumped from the car. fearing instant death. But a sec ond after they struck the ground they opened their eyes in wonder. The dark object was the shadow of the fast train.
