A great portion of tho discomfort of life, to tho married, arises from a defect in , educauou — I regret to say — on tho part of tlio wives ; other portions may arise from - bad temner and general ill behaviour on tho part of tho husbands. I am aware that ono serious flaw in tho habits of tha wives is insufEcient to dovelope this tomper, and sometimes drive tho hus bands elsewhere for the comforts that , thoy ought to have at homo. Does not the responsibility of making happy homes ' ? rest equally upon husband and wjfe 1 Somo people evidontly think that tho wives of working-men should not aspire to ' ; anything higher than the performance of household duties ; it is, certainly, their duty to conduct their household affairs as ^ well as possiblo without making them selves slaves to work. Those instances of 'misdirected industry,' are tho excep t...
