matter from behind the scenes on our 1 should say it was about I believe wives tell their husbands quite as many falsehoods as husbands tell but about far different Women deceive their husbands mostly in money matters or in things which concern their family If a wife is held to a strict account for the money she when she wants more than a certain stun she tells the bread winner it is for groceries or a dressmak ing Then she takes it and makes a present to her dear whom the husband or pays a gambling debt for her or gives it to her grown son or daughter to spend in extravagance which the father does not Sometimes she spends it for the or her But she always gets the money and if she is afraid of her husband it goes down to expense ac which appear wholly open and A wife always deceives her husband where she is afraid of the falsehoods are about even on both But is it not rather unfor tunate that those who are supposed to be all in all to each other dare not each other PRICE 15 CERTS PER
