TnE Wife's Power. Miss Kate
Field had an interview with Hepworth
Dixon, the brilliant editor of the Lon
don Alhoeneum, shortly before his
death. She says: "He was exceeding
ly fortunate in his domestic life. His
home was one of the pleasantest in
London. Once in conversation with
him I asked whether he thought the
majority of marriages were happy o r
unhappy. 'Happy, certainly,' was the
reply. 'I think most men marry for
lore, and set the right woman, with
whom they are perfectly satisfied
through life. Of course, however, there
are wives who fail to fail to hold the
hearts or their husbands. 'Will you
tell me I said, 'in what you think is
the secret ot a woman s lasting power
what quality it is in her which
makes her hold her husband's heart
forever V 'That she should be a pil
low,' answered Mr. Dixon, seriously.
'I mean that in her, as on a pillow, her
husband must find repose. He gets
hard knocks enough in the world; peo
ple stick their sharp corners into him;
they hurt his pride or wound his sen
sibilitie. Let him go home feeling
that there, at least, is some one who
believes in him utterly. He has no
need to tux himself if he is tired. She
will be contented even if he does not
tell her his be-t stories, or tells her the
old ones three times over. Sho asks
nothing of him but that ho will be him
self. Do you think years make such
refuge of less worth 1 No; a man will
never stay long away irom such com-
panionship the sincerest flatter, the
most perfect rest.' "

nothing whatever to do with it.
