AVOID THE LAST WORD. "The greatest menace tn the happi ness of married life is the 'last word,'" observed a feminine counsellor of her ?ex. .. "U ia a perfect bombshell In its abllUy to wreck domestic peace. It Is not easy, as a rule, to trace who had- the first word in a matrimonial dispute, but there is generally a com petition for the last. And, as a rule, the woman has it. "Quarrels begin so insidiously that one is drawn into them imperceptibly. But they would soon die away If it were not for this unworthy contest for the last word. So if you cannot avoid an occasional dispute with your husband (and after all a quarrel, if it Is not too bitter, is a sort of safety valve) let your husband have the last word sometimes; it will please him and do you no harm."
