rr age s I 1 I to ( 7 The Man Who isTi red of H is Wife "Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder," Says an Old Proverb, and This is Especially Apt in this Situation By DOKOTHY DIX. A man writes me In great distress. He pays that ho has been married about fifteen years and that suddenly a great .weariness of spirit has come upon him. Ills wife Is good and kind, an excel lent housekeeper, a thrifty manager and her one object In life Is to please him and makn him happy, but -while ho recog nizes nor virtues and admires them, they leave him cold end unmoved. In a word, he's tired of his wife. Bhe bores him to death. Jus,t her pres ence Is irksome to him, and when she goes with him on tiny sort of a pleas tire Jaunt It takes nil the fun out of the occasion. This man Is no gay Lo thario. Ho is a good, honest, domestic tnan, who Is honestly alarmed at the Btate of affairs, and ho wants to know what he can do to recover the Interest ho once had In his wife, and the thrills that went through his velnB like fire at the touch of her hand. There Is only one remedy for such cases and that Is absence. Only peoplo who have neither nerves, temperament nor Imagination can stand the horrible monot ony of seeing the same face opposite them at three hundred and sixty-five break fasts, and ditto dinners, to say nothing of having the same form across the drop light for an equal number of evenings a year and 'having to listen to the same old stories. The most beautiful people In the world Brow homely to our eyes If we sec them too often. The wittiest conversationalists grow tedious If wo have a surfeit of their society.' The virtues of even an angel pall upon us If they are constantly before us. Probably Mr. Mllo thought his Venus too fat or too thtn, and asked her why she didn't get another make of corsot. Doubtless there were times, before she got a divorce, when Mrs. Caruso said to herself that If Enrico warbled nnother warble she would scream, and It Isn't on record that the Immediate family of any of our saints and martyrs over handed In any testimony to show what they thought, on the subject of the canonization of their husbands or wives. Why peoplo who cannot eat thirty quails in thirty days,:. who never want, to see the iams, nlay twice, ortead ilbopk a second time; who tire of their 'ciothes he-' Xore tho are half worn out, and spend their lives hunting for new sights, uew emotions, new diversions, new places to go, should over be foolish enough to Imag ine that they could endure the undiluted society of one person, year In and year out, passes comprehension. There are millions of husbands and wives who have hod an overdose of each other's society and are suffering from It, and they are so stupid they don't realize what alls them, nor how simple the rem edy for it Is. Yet the symptoms are un mistakable.

Photographing the invisible sounds like a misnomer, but it Is correct to say, In visible by the unaided eye.

Pinch the glasses close together; there Is no danger of killing the smaller animals, such as bacteria and microbes. They have plenty of room in a film of water so thin as to be beyond Imagination. The magnifying lenses for expansion of Images of these minute objects require the most consummate skill In manufac ture. The mlcrocamera, likewise, and the two combined are triumphs of human genius.

Ho hasn't really fallen out of love with her, as he thinks- he has. He's Just tired of her for the time being. He doesn't really pine to be a gay- rover, as he Imag ines ho does. He Just wants to "ease the pressure of the yoke of matrimony for a little and to him and to his wife a ticket to Chicago, or Pan Francisco, or Bird Center, or nnywhero away from home, la a lifeline that saves them both from destruction. And It's exnetly the same way with women. Of course the theory Is thut women havo such an abnormal talent for loving that a wife never gets enough of her husband's society, but Is a female Oliver Twist always asking for more. Don't you believe It. Women are fickle creatures, and the best wife In tho world can get so Hick and weary of a model husband that she Is ready to dlo of sheer ennui. Every now and then a woman gets so that she can sec nothing but faults In her husband. Everything he does and everything he doesn't do Irritates her, and she, too, gets to wondering what on earth the foolktller was doing on the day that she tied up with tho mlserablo little shrimp that she did, Instead of marrying some romantic and godlike creature that she didn't marry. She thinks that sho Is suffering from having missed her affinity and being married to a groundling that can't understand her higher nature, but the whole trouble Is that she has had too mucn of her husband's society. Ai: that she needs to effect a complete cure Is a month or six weeks' separation. Of course, being ladies and gentlemen, most of us never admit to our husbancs and wives that we are bored. Wo yawn behind our hands and try to look Inter ested, but In our secret souls all of us know tho surging Joy with which we saw our dearly beloved husband or wife start off on a Journey, or tho rapture that filled our own bouI when we got off somewhere alone, or with perfect stran gers. And we also know tho delight wltn which ' we returned home, or welcomed back the wandbrer, our whole point of vision changed' by a little absence, and tho one of whom wo had been so tired .clothed again.

But It Isn't tho change of climate that does us good. It's the change from tho monotony of associa tion, and it sends ub back rested and re freshed and romantically in lovo again. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder," Bays tho old proverb, and this Is espe cially true of husbands and wives. Thov need to break away every few months Just to get a perspective on each other's good qualities and to find out how neces sary each Is to tho other's happiness.

"You Ico your drinks,' your butter, your chickens, even your tender little carrots, It Is ab-om-ln-ab-le," she cried in a merry mood that led her to attempt one of the few English sentences she sp kc during our Interview. Madame Bernhardt has the supreme gift of expressing emotion potently and fluently In a tongue that all can under stand. This power of projecting feeling by voice, by facial expression, by bodily motion, and by the unnamenblo "some thing" that makes her acting genius In stead of talent. i stands the Interviewer In good stead, for madame has not. alas! the gift of tongues not of tho English tongue, at any rate.

They havo nights and days of the same length as ours. They have seasons pre clsely corresponding to ours, except that they are each twice as long. But thlr oceans are dried up, no rains fall (though there may be dew), and nearly all th atmospheric moisture Is alternately looked up In one or the other of the polar snow caps. In such a situation no vegetation can flourish unless artlflcally stimulated by a gigantic system of Irrigation. And without vegetation, which builds up the protoplasmic substances, animal existence Is impossible. But whence can the Inhabitants of Mars derive the water needed for IrrlgH Hon? The answer given Is that thy get It periodically from the melting of tho polar snows. Being without seaa and rivers they have no other source of supply. of Praises "Wllnt would becomo of the French shops then?" said a during voice.

This universal concentration of mental energy upon a single ulm is conceived as having developed upon Mars a knowledge of the hidden forces of nnturei such as has, up to the present, merely been dreamed of on the earth, They would need sueh knowledge to enable them to achieve tho superhuman works whleh the telesonp appeurs to reveal.
