We find it in the Marysvilhi Tribune: "I declare, Mr. Smith, this is too had. 1 lore you are st retched out on the sofa, mussing it up, and my nice carpet is all spoiled by tho tramp of your coarse bonis. 1 sdiall be ashamed 0 bring any one into tho parlor again and 1 have taken so much pains to keep everything men. 1 do think, Mr. (Smith, you are the most thoughtless, careless man, 1 rverdid see you don't appear to care hoxv iiiueh trouble you give me, If 1 hail no more care than you bad, we would soon have a nice looking house it will not be long till our new house and furniture will he just as had as tho old," said John Smith's wifo to him, as she saw him ia the parlor taking a 'imp on the and the weather was so hot, ami this room so quid iin leool ami the sofa looked so inviting, that. I could not re sist. he temptation to snooze, a little. I thought when we were building a new bouse, and furnishing it thus, we were doing it because the old house and I'uriii'.ufo were not so conil'orlahle and desirable, an I that 1 and my own dear Mary would indulge ourselves in alittleuuiet Ici.-iUre in these nice rooms am I if we chose, in lounging on the !,:.,. .Lull iui:,wii il Li,t.'.-i; L, in leu a I t. : : .. .1 1 : I ' . , . armed chairs, awav Ii oni the noise ol lw Umiy sm(.;, ol- t,1(J C(J0,.. lv, sve. I did not dream of displeasing vou, .Mary, and I thought it would give you pleasure to see me enjoying a nap on the sofa this afternoon. I notion when Mr. Mcrchunt Swell, or Col. liigmnn, and their families are here, you appear delighted to have solas ami chushioned arm chairs for lliem to sit in or lounge upon. 1 thought tho house and the solas were for us that we were seekg ing our own pleasure when we paid a largo sum of money for lliem; but 1 suppose 1 was mistaken, and that the house and furniture aro for strangers, and that we aro to sit in the old kitch en, and if I want to take a nap, or rest it little when fatigued, I am to lie down on a slab in the wood-house; and if you want to rest, you can go to the chidreii's bed-room, xvheru the Hies can have a chntiee at you. The irony of .Mr. Smith's reply only provoked his wife, and seeing himself threatened with a repetition of Mrs. .Smith's speech, with unpleasant ad ditions and variations, and knowing that he would get tired of gaining vie tories over her in argument, before she would think of getting tired of defeat, he took himself out, and left Mrs. Smith to fix up and dust our, and lock him out of his own house, and took a seat in the old chair in the kitchen which Mrs. Smith said was good enough to use every day in the kitchen, where no one sees it. Tour mistake, Mrs. Smith, thought 1 And jet most women are like her. They xvunta line house, and when they get it they xvant an outhouse built to live in, and they confine their families to a few small rooms, poorly furnished, while the main rooms, well-furnished, are never seen by the family only when visitors come! lloth houses and furniture are too grand for use. The carpet is too fine for their husbands to walk on the mirrors too fine for him lo look into the furniture all too fine for him to sec or use. Just so it goes; wc dress wo women, J mean and 1 am sorry that many men arc as foolish as we are, to pleaso others, or rather to excito their remarks; wc build hou ses and furnish them for those outside tho family, and live as poorly when wo arc rich as wc did w hen we were poor; as poorly in tho new house as in the old. It is a fatal day for enjoyment when a family gets a house and furniture too line for use; and yet most women have an ambition to have it so, Better would it bo if they were con tented with such a house and such furniture as Is suited to every day use the house large enough to accom modate one's friends, and the furniture such as all use when at home.
