If the Bible bad said man was made out of woman's rib I would believe; for all things in this woild a man is most helpless alone. A chicken two Lours out of the shell can take better care of itself than a man can. So it is all right that a man by 20 or 25 should be looking around for a woman to take care of him; and a woman is never per mitted to look around for a man. The women do not need to go com ting;. I am sure there is some mistake in the transaction. It sliould read that man was made of a rib of a woman. I can not stick a pin down in liter ature, but I come upon the praise of woman; and it is not for me to say it is not all deserved. Let me give you a taste of my collection of nice things.
