Tie well-being of society demand
the existence of the marital relation,
yet the evil incident to the hasty mar
riages, or between uncongenial parties
leading to alienation and crime, and the
'commission by one party of acts sub
versive of the terms of the contract,
have more or less weight to make
exceptions to the rule. Among bar
barous and half-civilized tribes wives
were pat aside with little or no formal
ity. The Mohammedans allow divorce
by the consent of both parties, although
they seek to restrain it by revolting
The Hebrews, to whom we owe many
of the leading elements of onr civiliza
tion, while tljey recognize marriage as
an institution for which a man left his
parents 1 und clung to his wife? slyly
winked at polygamy, and countenanced
divorce whenever the husbands found
some uncleanliness about their wives.
What this uncleanliness was has led
to much discussion among theologians.
It has boeo a subject of discussion be
tween the schools of Shamniai and
Hillel:the latter understanding it as
anything offensive or displeasing on the
part of the wife, the former considering
it as only applying to adultery.
Solon eudeavored to elevate the in
stitution of marringe, but the wayward
temper of the voluptuous people who
worshiped God, coutinually engaged
in amorous peccadilloes, was not to be
checked by either the wisdom of Solon
or the edicts of Draco. The Greek
husband put his wife aside for slight
causes. In Crete a man could divorce
her if he was afraid she would become
the mother of too many children, At
Athens it took two forms, the first was
apopompein, or sending away or out of
fie house, when the husband repudiated
the wife; the other was apoleipein,
when the wife left and rent away.
Littlo ceremony was used when the
husband sent the wife away, and often
times the causes were slight. , Timo
crntes finds a rich heiress, so he sends
off his wifn, who, in a day, marries
Aphobus, the gaaidian of the boy
AYhon the wife left the husband she
was compelled to go before the archou
and present a writing in which the rea
sons for the separation were set down.
If both parties agreed, that was the end
of the affair, and her husband paid over
whatever dower was in his hands. If
not agreed, a suit arose. Tlipparete, the
wife of Aleib'iades and daughter of one
of the leading men of Athene, became
indignant at her husband's licentious
excesses, went before the archon with
her grievances,, but Alcibiades collected
a band of men and dragged her back,
perhops for the sake of her great dower
of twenty talents, and sho hved with him
until her death.
Among the Romons the husband had
the right of divorce by the laws of the
twelve tables. The first divorce was
the case of Sp.Carrilius Ruga, who put
away his wife for barrenness, yet re
ceived the condemnations of the simple
republicans. After the extension of the
llomau empire in the ea it and the ex
tinction of Carthage, corruption and
lax morals crept in and divorces be
came common. Sulpicius Gallus put
osido his wife because she went outdoors
with her head uncovered; Antistius
Vctus because his wife spoke to a freed
woman of the common sort, and Sophus
because she went to the cirous without
his permission. Cicero, the orator, dis
missed Forentia for nd orime, after a
long marriage, so that he
could marry Tublitis, a rich
young lady, and pty his debts.
Among the grounds which a husband
had for divorce were some sufficiently
nonsensical, as witchcraft, eating with
strangers, dealing falsely, raising the
hand in anger, frequenting theatres
when forbiddeu, sacrilege, murder and
violating the sepulchres. Under the
Christian emperors the laws of divorce
were several times modified. In 439
divorce by mutual consent was allowed.
So great were the odds in favor of the
husband that the historian Gibbon
says: "In the most rigorous laws a
wife was compelled to support a game
ster, a drunkard or a libertine, unless
ho was guilty of homicide, poison or
sacrilege, in which coses the marriage,
as it would seem, might have been dis
solved by the hand of the
exaon'tibnet." ' ' " ' "
- In the times of Christ 1 he announced
that divorce ought to bo restrained to
the single cause of adultery, and when
his disciples expressed surprise his
reply was, "What God hath joined to
gether let not man put assnnder." As
early as the eight and ninth centimes,
when the power of the church of Rome
was becoming firmly gronnded, the
doctrine was taught that marriage was
a sacrament. For a time this doctrine
was rejocted by the civil tribunals, but
when the church had gained strength
enough to take from the civil authori
ties the jurisdiction of marriage and di
vorce, the revolution was complete.
Marriago became a religious ordinance,
and no power except that of the church,
itself could dissolve it.

Of the days I i'lnt in YSniilHife'coul

house, thero was none wlion I did not
reflect how stranso a thing it in that wur

Tho mast delightful lodgings I ever in
habited were in a hotel in Mnntanzus.
My bed-room had a floor of tiling at
leant fifteen and perhaps twenty feet be
low th ceiling. The door wm out in
two, width-wise, so that the ton could be
shut to keep tho sun out, or the bottom
could be shut to keep intruders out
while the open top let in the air; or a
ourtnin could bo drawn across tho lower
half when I wished to read or write, or
take comfort in my shirtsleeves, with
privacy and coolness combined. '
A little window high in the opposite
wall provided for tho circulation of air.
But when tho door was wholly open, 1
MiW beyond ' the little covered gallery
hat led to all the rooms around a central
eourt, a tropic garden at my feet and the
clear sky overhead, for the court was
open to the sky, and was planted with
fruit trees and flowers in great boxes on
a flooring of marblo mosaic. F.very
room in the two-story, hotel opens on
this court and has a window or door
through tho outer wall. Tho guests sit
in the dining-room looking out upon the
smiling park across tho, street or back
into tho littlo garden in the heart of tho
house. The kitchen, the baths, the
closets and the sleeping-rooms of the
help are on the farther side of this court,
to all iuteuts and purposes in a separate
buUdiri,;,Iho front of tho hotel ou the
grounaniw is a series of doors and win
dows so big and clone together that when
all are open tho peoplo of the houso en
joy all the advantages of the open air
without suffering from the sun. - If tho
air is moving in Mantanuis it moves
through that hotel. '
The l:rly Hlaer a Nnlsaaee. '
San Francisco Chronicle "Undertones,"
I rcmcmlwr many years ago reading a
most sensible article In an English paper
on early rising. It sot down early rising
as tho bano of modern civilization.
Ro;Uly, I believe it is right. The gentle
man over mo is not a nowspaper man.
llo goes to bod early ana very early Us
begins to move about. .In tho con
sciousness of virtuous ' industry he
despises all who do not get up ns early
as he does. Sometimes he sins, but
thero is always a heartiness and cht?er
fulness about his dressing in the morn
ing which keeps all below him awako.
As a positivo fact the early riser is a
nuisance... In. those days when lifo pplj
begins uftgr dinner, the man who r'nc
with tualark breaks up everything. He
begins to yawn during dinner, llo goes
to sleep and snores : immodiately alter,
lie is remonstrated with, and gives as an
excuso that he gets up at daylight, lie
gets up at daylight, ho wakes up all the
houso, ho is merry when peoplo are en
joying their best sleep, and ho simply
inflicts upon himself, with tho most vir
tuous and praiseworthy iutent, annoy

" An army of Benedicts. i
I London Truth.
The Italian army has for Bomo yean
been known as a legion of benedicts.
For many years it was a royal rulo that
no officer holding his majesty's com
mission should marry unless he possessed
a certain amount of private income. It
aly is not a rich nation, and tho subal
terns of iU army are not wealthy. Tho
consequence is that married officors have
been the exception, not tho rulo in Italy.
The grievance for in this light the rule
has been regarded by its victims was
recently brought nnuor the uotico of his
majesty, and the king has now relaxed
the regulation, fixing the marriago in
come of his officials at a point which will
enable gallant gentlemen to enter the
bonds of matrimony in the broad light
of day, as becomes the action of tho
soldier, instead of marrying in secret
and repenting at leisure. .
A Burial In Palestine. , ,
Jaffa Cor. Kansas City Journal. 1
The other day a tomb was opened, and
I had tho surprise of discovering . that
tlie Biblical 'method ; of interment still
prevailed. It was a young man who had
died. His body was first washed and
then wrapped in new white linen, tho
feet and hands being tied with tho same
stuff, and a napkin being wound around
his face, as in the case of Lazarus. Then
tho bonos of tho young man's father
were taken out of the grave, and put
back into the new grave with tho fresh
remains. As this process is repeated
from generation to generation, of course
tho dust of previous paternal ancestors
is mingled with tho fresh consignments
of clay, so that the' dead rnay literally
be said to "sleep with their fathers."
A Trench Equipage.
New York Post
A new style of equipaso is to bo in
troduced at Uowport and Lenox ; this
year, called by tho French a char-a-banc.
It ia intended to accommodate a' large
party, and L? bettor adapted for country
drives than for regular avenue parado;
IU distinguishing novelty is the three
horses abreast which drag it, and a Rus
sian innovation of a large hoop fastened
over the back of the middle horse, to
which small bells are attached, has boon
introduced with those that have been
imported to this country. The effcet
will be novel and picturesque, no doubt;
but in a country neighborhood the tink
ling bells might call up memories' of the
rag and bottle man, or tho summer ieo
cream cart.

WHEAT There is no heavy volume of
business in progress. Growers do not take'
kindly to the comparatively low ruling
prices, and a good deal of grain ia beln
placed la warehouses in preference to be
ing forwarded to market. The demand la
active, and exporters are ready to take lib
eral consignments of good shipping qual
ity, provided it can be obtained at $1,321
if ctl, This figure fairly represent ths
situation at toe msmeut It Is possible
that transactions are made at $1.3'li and
even at $1.3 per ctl., but business at these)
prices Is exceptional and easily explained
by certain attendant circumstances.' On
call there was a fair disposition to specu
late on the future of the market, though ii

tloular enlargement of the record of sales.

. BARLEY The market keeps pretty '
steady, considering that the new crop la
now finding Its way to market in fairly
liberal amounts. Offerings are compara
tively large, but holders are firm, and ef
forts to obtain any marked concessions
are, as a rnle, fruitless. Buyers do their
best to force values to a lower basis, but.
so far, etTbrts of this character have not
availed anything. No. 2 grades of Feed
are quotable at 77fz80c If ctl. In Drew,
ing there is nothing new worth remark
ing. The tone of the situation is of easy
character, and the market is likely to
shape more favorab'y for buyers as the
time approaches when the new crop ean
be better utilized than at present. Good
new Brewing can be bought at 85Ca,U0e,
while old ranges from (toc(g$1.05 V ctl.
Chevalier has not yet come is to much
prominence, as the samples have been
more or less of indifferent character. A
wide range in values Is expected this sea
son. Choice will probably find quick sale
at $1.40 If ctl and even higher, while poor
is likely to role as low as Il.lor$1.15, with
dull sale at even these prices. Sales were:
