It is a strange fact that with the progresi

course between men an I women become!
eaai-r and pleas u tirj seconl, there ia a
tendency on the part of both men and
women to separate ti.eir UattTttU aoJ even
their pleasure, A certain portion of the
dav and or th-evening is given up to com
mon pleasures, but there is a large part ol
each day when both men and WOUWH prefer
to be apart. 1 think rny-elf it is a g.wd
thill,', and so long as what separate i the
sex's is their distinctive duties it is well
But urn mg the growing leisure claw in th

woul I lie aitonlshad to know how many so

is a curse to men, but it is deadly poison b
women. Thev are not, as a rule, so capa
ble of self ariiii emtnt as are BM an I thoy
are prone, as in the matter of smoking and
drinking , to tamper with the miisir paa e

boldness a car-l's-ne-s about the mm irdel

Why not have it liiirtfliir insurance

and yet the risk of Urns of life, health
or property by burglary is as great as
that from any oilier cause. In ,,ur
present high stale of oWUUed life It is
an aooideil Mat likely U happen, mid
is a constant iiial unavoidable risk. In
tbl West Bad thirty-eight burglaries
were ooaatittod wilhin the last two
moo tba. Any responsible company
which would undertake to indemnify
il, subscriber for such loss could
command a high premium, and uu
immense patronage. Nut only the
wealthy would join, but nay body
who had any thing, especial
ly the large middle class, who
can Little afford to loee what
they have. I tun of the hit
ler class. I have lost by burglary
within Die last four years more than
live hundred dollars' worth of clothing
alone. If I hud u wife ami jewelry
my loss would, of course, have been
proportionately greater. I am a care
ful man. loo; I pay my night watchman
regularly us he comes round every
month) l use poiiticui Influence to have
n double police force in my part of the
town, and I keep n dog in the hack
yard so nobody can come in that way.
I lie awake at night listening for sus
picious sound,, god came near shoot

came in rather late the other night. I
sil on my trunk for hours during tin
day with a navy revolver in my hand.
Hut somelimcs I have other things to
attend to, and It is always when least
expeeled that the burglars come to
make their collections. Sometimes
they come again the following nlglit,
but only when they have forgotten
omethlng. Seldom is any thing re
covoiihI, and when something is re
lumed It Is generally by lite burglars'
generosity, which prompt! them to re
turn helriOOma Of, perhaps, their lack
of sentiment does not ullow them iii
appreciate heirloom. If w overlook
the shortcomings of a burglar we can
see that he serves it good purpose as
well as every thing else In creation.
He serves indirectly to secure work tot
the locksmith, the tailor, the jeweler,
profit to the seeoud-hitnd clothing
dealer and support to a numerous and
