woman who presides over your
domestic affairs—legally so, si
least: for you were married in
strict accordance with what tbe
civil law requires in such cases;
but mortally you can be a real
lutband to her only in case you
ove her. In other words, while
an outward compliance with the
statute makes marriage legal,
nothing can make it holy in the
Lord's sight save the mutual and •
reciprocal affection existing be
tween the parties. That is the
first reason why it is so neces-
sary foi husbands to love their
wives; and this, of course, makes
equally necessary for wives to

Did you ever think what it means

Talk of a leap in the dark! Tklk
of running a risk! Talk of seert-
fleas! ffcftf yotl tmvsin instance
of these tbingn which has hardly
a parallel in all the realm of hu-
man devotion. The girl has a
home. It has been hera from
childhood, She has known any-
thing scarcoly but happiness
there. A dear, precious home it
is, sanctified by a father's au-
thority and hallowed by a moth-
er's love. That is one thing she
gives up. The home, perchance
will still exist; but it will not be
hers any longer in the sense it
used to be. Her home heneatter
can only be such as that mau can
Father and mother infest like-
wise be given up. In fact, tbe
girl's life from that moment, will
present an entirely different de-
sign. Formerly, the parents
were in the foreground of the
picture; now these are relegated
to the background, and her hus-
band takes the first place. For
the marriage relatian, we must
remember, is superior even to
the filial relation in the Script-
ural view of the case. In fact,
wedding bonds are the most
binding in which humans beings
can be hole.
Think, then, wha» a girl gives
up when she links hands with a
informing these bonds! What
a leap she takes, and what a risk
she runs—life, honor, happinesa
everything is laid at his feet! All
too, in most cases, for loves
sweet sake, for it behooves us to
remember that for a pure, young
girl to marry for anv other mo-
tive than because her heart has
already gone where her choice is
going, is a rare occurrence in
countries like our own. 8uch
cases undoubtedly occur some-
times. but they are exceptional
the rule being that the girl
weds the man because because
she loves him; and the farther
rule holding almost as general-
ly that through the trials aud
vicissitudes of future life she
continues ts love him, This is
