JEALOUSY AND HAPPY LIFE.
THAT la tho question that bothers
many a wife. To be lovod de
, votedly Is the ambition of every
Woman, but to have that love take the
form of exacting suspicion, or a sort of
affectionate Jalleiulilp, is not always
desirable. Opinions galore are given n
this topic and we can ouly judge from
the lives that come closest to us, in fact
the lives that are lived under our ob
servation. To begin with, there Is a couple happy
as two young lovers, the husband, how
ever, so insanely Jealous of his wife
that he has broken off even her women
friendships. If she were to walk as far
as the gate with another man a tragedy,
would bo the almost certain result.
Yet, ns we said before, they are bothi
serenely happy. Would they be so 14
circumstances brought about a new ex
fwtence and set up now conditions? Let
us hope so, for it would be a pity to
Bpoll their Illusions. From them tie
thought wanders to another couple,
who see no reason, because they core
more for each other than anyone else in
the world, why all the other pleasant
people should be excluded from their
companionship. The wife dances, talks
and drives with other men. The hus
band dances, talks and drives wth
other women. There la no question of
Jealousy because there Is perfect con
fidence. When they are together they
are not bored. The husband Is pleased
to have his wife admired and she Is
happy to find that she has not married
a freak whom no one else would wnnt
It Is a hard question to decide and one
upon which tho parties themselves
alone should sit In judgment, but It Is
our belief that Jealousy Is but another
name for selfishness, rather than an
Indication of any overpowering affec
tion. Philadelphia, Times.

of the Kebcl Brazilian Aquidaban.
Before the rebel Brazilian fleet In the
harbor of Rio Janeiro, under Admiral
De Garaa, surrendered In 1894, Rebel
Admiral Mello had sailed out of the
harbor in the Aquidaban. The torpedo
boats sent by the Brazilian government,
to find the ship came upon her in the
harbor of Desterro, down the coast.

from a photograph taken of the Aqui

In the civil war in Chili, In 1801, the
government cruiser Blanco Encajada
was sunk by a torpedo In the harbor of
Valparaiso. It was at night and she
was lying at anchor with no search
lights going and no torpedo nets down.
An Insurgent ship came steaming in
so that by turning his head slightly In
side the helmet the diver can see for
some distance around him.
The air tubing is of strong, flexible
rubber, through which the fresh air
from above is driven down by means
of a pump. This tube, before reaching
the opening In the helmet through
which the air Is supplied to the diver, Is
carried through a ring on the breast
plate at the diver's left shoulder. This
is so that he may be able to grasp it
quickly, without having to grope for it,
In case he needs to signal: to those at
the nump above. One pull on the tube
rheans'that he wants more air and two
pulls warn 'the pumpers that he is -getting
too much'. "If the. air were supr.
plied in excess the suit woiuld become
so buoyant that It would "tend to rise.

After the air has been breathed it

degree the hydrostatic pressure. With

pressed iagalM' th' fllfe.r's body and
limbs by the- -wetght of the "water, and
would drive the blood up into his head.
There is another opening ln tho back
of the helmet, through which the foul
air finls: its escape. This rimy be seen
coming up to. the top of the water in
the form of bubbles. The life rope by
which the diver is lowered and raised Is
about as thick as an ordinary clothes
line. It Is wound securely about his
waist and fastened under his arms.
Three pulls upon it signify to those
above that the diver wishes to come up.

No woman's strength Is equal to the
demands made upon It by claims -domestic,
social and Intellectual of these
latter days, ami since this fact Is Indis
putable why not look the problem
squarely in the face and decide calmly
when to shirk? The question, of
course, chiefly concerns tho honiokcH'p
er; she who endeavors to keep a house
up to concert pitch of tidiness and not
Just occasionally and In spots, either;
but all over and all the time. Besides
tho mero sweeping, dusting, arranging
nnd menu-providing to bo superintend'
ed, thero are, too, the hospitality that
she must be ever ready to offer smiling
ly, and the duties to herself not to
ppeak of church and charltublo work,
club life and the claims of society. One
cannot do everything; why try? Of
course, tho question at once presents
Itself: Where shall tho remedy be ap
plied? In answer to which common
sense, system, a right estimate of essen
tials and self-control may be suggested
as tho best aids to the conscience In de
ciding what shall be loft undone. With
a judicious application of "scientific
shirking" thero need bo no lasting
truth to this statement However de
peuernte it may sound, "shirking" Is
the only thing by which a woman can,
under tho pressure of present living,
hope to keep her health and to escape n

Tho difference In tho texture of tho

amply repay tho housewife for tho sac

As a rule, for washing the hands,
neither very hot nor very cold water
should be used.
A few drops of ammonia or a small
ounntlty of ttorax may bo added to
soften the water.
