IS mott of the time I stared with my
oldest married (Inter, as I had no
mother tiring and father was poor,
and my stepmother told me I had to
go and earn my own living. So my
lister took me to help her. A couple
of months before 1 was 15 I got ac
quainted with a fellow- whom I really
did not know before. lie asked me
to marry him. I told my sister about
It and she said the best thing for
would be to marry, as she couldn't
f keep me all the time. So I took her
c advice and married, es I thought she
I Now I hare six children four girls
and two boys: do all of the housework
and always did without much help

at always nasi me ever since we were
first married; calls me some terrible
names and swears whenever he gets
mad at me the least bit I am getting
so tired of that nagging that I some
times think I can't stand it any long
er. What could I do to stop him, as
I hare put tip with him an awful lot,
and I love to IlTe happily.
It is almost Impossible to cure a
nagging man. Can't you take the
youngest children and go away
somewhere for a whjle? Tell him
you guess he is tired of you and you
want to give bim a rest from your
self. Speak quietly and pleasantly to
him. Try to rest more. Dress as neat-

aud happiness to you,
Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1)
bustles be worn this summer?
(2) What do you call flirting?
(3) Do you think it is light for
married man to go out too often
night without hs wife? BLOXDY.
(1) Some of the skirts are draped
in bustle effect, but they will prob
ably not be popular. I think women
in general hare grown too sensible
to adopt tho bustle again. It was
not only a ridiculous fashion, but
often really deformed the young girls
who wore bustles.
(2) Flirting is making' a pretense
at love. It always harms somebody
usually hurts the woman most.
(3) I think a married man oupht
to be allowed some independence. His
wife enjoys herself at times without
him, and he can certainly enjoy him
self sometimes without her. Of course
it is not right for a man to be oat
every night having a good time if his
number formed the pleasures of the
evening and a delicious tray lunch
was served. Shamrocks were used
In decorating the house.

With Fels-Naptha Soap the drudgery of
washday vanishes. Did you know that
in twenty-five years a woman washes
through a pile of clothes 1000 times her
size? Sounds biff enousrh to frighten
you, doesn't it? But you needn't be
frightened if you know the way to do it
By using Fels-Naptha Soap you can
do these things : You can get through
in half the time it used to take ; you can
use cool or lukewarm water, because it
works best in that ; you can throw away
your washboiler, because clothes washed
with Fels-Naptha Soap don't need boil
ing ; you can save your hands, because
the clothes won't need hard rubbing.

Anty Drudge "No, indeed! I'm never too tired
, to do a favor for you or anybody else, Mrs.
Hardwork. For years I couldn't bave said
that, for I was tired all the time, and tireder
on washdays; bat I have used Fels-Naptha
Soap. The only regret I have is for the years
I didn't know about it, and went around
worn out and disagreeable because I was too
tired to be pleasant. I have time now to do
things for myself and other people."
