HOW TO TREAT A WIFE
(From Pacific Health Journal)
First, get a wife; second be patient. You may have great trials and perplexities in your business, but do not, therefore, carry to your home a cloud of contracted brow. Your wife may have trials, which though of less magnitude may be hard for her to bear. A kind word, a tender word, a tender look, will do wonders in chasing from her brow all clouds of gloom. - To this we would add always keep a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in the house. It is the best, and is sure to be needed sooner or later. You wife will then know that you really care for her, and wish to protect her health.

Eight dollars and eight cents was secured, but the three were not satisfied and wanted the boys to give up their coats also.
