"A Wyoming Girl," Next Wed
There is a peculiar charm about a
play, when presented with fidelity to
nature: such IOM is "A Wyoming
Girl." It is said to contain just
enough tragedy, with comedy ele
ments cleverly interwoven, to attract
and retain human interest and funny
enough to extract hearty laughter
from the most blase theatre goer. It
is said to possess an atmosphere as
pure an the scent of new mown hay
and tells a pretty love story in a high
ly original manner; in the four acts of
the play, which is given zest by the
introduction of splendid specialties
thoroughly in harmony with the
eni of the story throughout the
rious acts. This attraction promis
es to be a very able one, the statement
being based upon reports from the
press of other cities and theatrical
managers in whose theatres it lias ap
peared the present Beason. At L ve

Is the Farmer's Wife a Slave?
Scientific Investigation Shows That In Most
Cases Her Life is a Useless Tragedy.
What prosperity on the average
farm means to the women of the
country is described by William Ath
ei tou Da I'uv in a startling article on
"The Useless Tragedy ol the Farm
er's Wife," which appears la the De
lineator for June. Were the six mil
lions of farmers' wives in the United
States placed in a caldron, fused into
one homogeneous mass, enough of it
pboppod out to make one woman the
typh-al farm woman- and were she
depicted to the people as she is, there
would be the greatest tragedy of Am
erican civilization, says Mr. Du Puy.
There is a lot to be found out about
this woman, and it is vital to know of
her. It is she who bears the bruutof
feeding the multitude for which the
farmer receives so much praise. It is
she who gives birth, before her vital
ity is sapped, to the men who make
history. It is she who is martyred in
t lie times of peace and plenty. It is
a useless martyrdom, for it is easily
preventable, and for this reason it is
especially important that her condi
tion and the causes of it should be
