(By Helen Oldflold.)
A Bhrowd old lawyer, whoso clov
or and caustic speecheu wore remom
"bered long aftor his death by those
who heard them, used to quoto the
saying: "Advlco Is tho worBt vice
thoro 1b"; and ho added: "Fow peo
ple ask advlco becuuso they want
counsel." Oenorally they hope to
Ijo confirmed In the cotirso upon
which thoy have already decided;
vfticn tho contrary happens thoy
raroly tako the advlco, and In any
cano thoy resent It, so it la wlso to
bo cbary of your opinion concern
ing other people's affairs.
Especially Is this truo with regard
to lovo affairs. In this .land of lib
erty and era of peraonal froodom
most persona nro at Hborty to marry
ns they chooso, provided that both
Barkis and Poggotty nro willing, nnd
cacoptlng when parents and guar
dians efol IhomBolvcs In duty bound
to lnterforo, tho host course Is to let
them alone. Strangers abovo nil
"havo no right to mnko or to mcddl'.
As to socond mnrrlagos, thoro Is
'nothing to dlfforontinto thorn In tills
Tospoct from first marriages. In
lood, Blnco tho persons concerned
usually nro oldor, and presumably
-wlsor, thoy havo Btlll greater claim
to bo permitted to "gang tholr own
'gait" wltout hlndrnnco. Truo, bouh
mon and woman como to years o'
tllscrotlon at 17, nnd other fall to
virrlvo at 70, but that has nothing
to do with tho enso. Tho mnrrlago
liond Is "tlj! donth do yo part," nnd
tho man or woman who has burled
ono Hpouso Is nt full llborty to tnke
Tinothor It ho or hIio Is bo disposed.
"Tho law nllows It, and tho court
tiwnrds." Tho question Is ono which
onch Individual muBt decide for ono
self. Observation and opcrlenco
abundantly proyo that a largo pro
portion of second mnrrlagos are
linppy. Poets nnd iiovoI1b(b to tho
coutrnry notwithstanding, only tho
fow lovo once and forevor. The lovo
of romiuico which l born In a mo
ment to hiBt otornally, which Ib un
impaired and unnffected by tlmo,
circumstance, or condition, hns no
counterpart In tho cxpcrlonco of ov-
orydny llfo, Not thnt truo lovo dood
not exist, but thnt, llko nil other
boat things, It requires favornblo In
fluences, and Is perfected by growth
and culturo. Whothor It mirvlvoa
nftor doiith dopouds entirely upon
tho man and woman who linvo
sliarod that lovo. There nro 8,01110
who never forgot, nemo who cannot
bo forgotten. An Bnyu ono nmonts
ilho host of homoly phtlogophors who
npponr lu 4h fiction of tho heur:
"Thor'H men would mnrry one
n year If their wives would die fait
enough, nnd thoro's inou that houiuh
to want to live alone."
So also with women, as Home one
hns Bald, there nro tlioso who llko
dogs are faithful unto donth nnd
nftor, othorH who llko rata purr con
tontedly under wliatovor hand
ntrokos thorn gently and provides
thorn with cushion und crenm. It Is
u matter of tompornmont rather
than of anything oIho.
Tho Iuwh of nnclont Spartn for
bado Hucoud marriages, but for ron
sons so cynical nH Bcnrcely to be
logical. Thoy hold that If n man
or woman hud had ono good wlf
or huxbnnd It wns nil he or alio had
tho right to expect, whoreforo It was
tholr duty to thank tho gods nor
inmtW tlmm fnrtlini. If mt Mm ,..

trary, the IlrHt mnrrlago had boon
1111 miimppy one, only n 1001 would
wish to run tho risk of nnothor, and
undor tho Spartan laws fools wore
not permuted to marry.

moro likely to marry again -than
thoso who havo been fortunate.
There Is a bit of the gambler In tho
naturo of most of us, and tho man
whoso pockets are full Is more will
ing to quit tho tables than ho who
Is losing; ono scorns always to hope
thnt tho luck will turn.
Dr. Johnson pronounced a second
mnrrlngo to bo "tho triumph of
hopo over experience." Others,
who nro less epigrammatic, affirm
that to itnke a second partner Is tho
highest compliment which can bo
paid to tho departed first. In somo
cases tho real romance of marrlago
only awakes with tho second woo
ing. It by no mentis follows that
must bo a prosaic, .practical trans,
actlpn. Mnturo lovo will naturally
lack somo of tho undisciplined fervor
of youngor days, but It will proba
bly go doopor nnd last longor. It
should bo controlled but not cooled
by oxporloncc. Prudenco and fore
sight must not bo confounded with
cold blooded calculation. An im
portant consideration In tho romar
rlngo of paronts with children under
ngo Is, or ought to bo, tho wolfnro
of thoso children.
Tho widow who writes, evidently
hoping to bo told that It Is hor duty
to hor two boys, aged respectively
IB and 13, to glvo thorn a stop-
fathor Is ndvised to rend David
Copporflold. Sho says that Bho Is
unnblo to control tho ladB, who need
a strongor, flrmor hand thnn hers.
This may bo, but It Is well to be
suro ,tliat tho hand la gcntlo and
tonder as well as strong and firm.
Plonty of oxcollont fathors and mo
thers testify thnt It Is not always
easy to bo patlont with one's own
chlldron! It Is Infinitely hardor to
bo so with tho chlldron of nnothor.
A stepfather Is a dangorous exporl
mont, unless ho bo a man of uncom
mon flbor; and ho nnd tho boys
ought, If poimlhlo ,to bo chumB before
tho fnct.
Tho man whoso wlfo dies, leaving
him with Bmnll children, Is in n most
pathotlc position, nnd It ho loves n
good woman who loves him .and'
who for tho nnko of that lovo will
mothor tho llttlo ones tho host thing
ho enn do Is to mnrry hor, Lot him 1
bo sure ho Is right nnd thon go
nhond; tho fact that his deceased
wife's rolatlvos objoct to his romnr
rlngo does not ontltlo thorn to for
bid tho bnnns.
Ono bit of ndvlco may bo snfolv
given. No mnn or woman who Is
of a Btrongly Jonloua disposition
ought ovor to undortnko to piny tho
rolo of No. 2. It Is Inovltnblo that
thoy will bo compared, lu thought
If not In word, with No. 1, nor need
tho coinpnHson nocosinrlly bo paln
ful. It Is not gonoroua of No. 2 to try
to bnnlah nil tracos of tho prodocoa
aor. Tho man or woman who light
ly enn nbnndon all memories of tho
partner of youth la not bo llkoly to
ho an Idonl companion for mlddlo
ngo ns tho ono who oherlahoH a ton
dor rognrd for tho dead, sldo by ah
with an honest lovo for tho living.
