They have no lime to cultivate their minds, and thus prepare themselves to fulfill their highest destiny. Abolish this cruel system of competition and yon will see better wives and mothers. Women do not have the time to devote to their chiidreu that they should have. She advised young men to abstain from matrimony, unless they were wealthy enough to support a wife in "proper style."
