Happily Married

No woman should permit herself to become too familiar with her husband.  Always make him respect you.  If he does you a kindness , thank him.  If you meet him on the street, speak to him as politely as you would to a stranger.  Never tag around after him and give him the impression that you are watching him; a man dislikes to be hanging on a womanís apron strings.  Donít expect him to do your housework for you and donít scold.

Never be anxious for him to tell you where he has been if he is twenty minutes late to his meals, eat your lunch and let him have what is left.

And, sister, don t cry for every cross word.  Just get the forgetting habit; forget to hear.

I read funny stories, war news, everything in general, I know he likes to hear, and he doesnít go to the saloon for news, for I try to keep right up to date.  I am not beautiful, nor finely educated, nor a musician, but I am a good cook and can do sewing very neatly.  His clothes are always clean, his meals always ready, and I am sure my husband loves me.  I have been married eight years.

What do I most admire about him? It is just his; He never talks unkindly of anyone and he never scolds.

I was always a good talker but I have learned that o keep your mouth shut up tight when you see he is cross is the great secret of happiness.

My husband is very proud and likes to look nice, I do admire neatness in a man.

Now I have seen that married life surely has its ups and downs. But a woman causes all her troubles, generally.

Try to save and remember that money is yours and his together.  Never get the habit of running to him for money.  Tell about how much you want on pay day and make it do.  Always be sure your ask for plenty, then if you have an left over put it away.

If you must talk, donít gossip, but talk over business matters or some pleasant thing.

My husband does not like to go out in the evening, but if I want to go I dress up the children and go. Donít ask if you can; tell him nicely that you are going.

Be independent, but donít show off about it; and learn to listen to his ideas.  If you disagree with him, do not say so unless he asks for our opinion.

Donít tell him every silly thing, what you buy and what you do, unless he asks you.  Learn that the greatest secret of happiness is silence.  Flatter him, make him think he is just the thing.

A man is very much like a child. Be firm and kind and always a lady, and he is yours always.

Tom Garner,, son of Jno. Garner who lives across the Dillon Bridge was bitten by a rattlesnake Friday afternoon.  Tom, who is about 13 years old was cutting potato vines for the hogs.  He plunged his hand into a bunch of vines and a huge rattle unlimbered itself and plunged its fangs into the fleshy part of Tom's left hand.  The boy snatched his hand away from the vines with the rattle still clinging to it and had to swing his arm with some violence before the snake's hold could be broken. His arm was bandaged and stimulants were administered.   Prompt attention probably saved his life as the attending physician says he is now out of danger.
