Last year James Kendall's wife sued
him for a divorce at Pawnee, and the
court promptly gave her a decree. Now
James c« mes to the front and turns the
tables by suing her for • f,,r
"services rendered as her hu band during
three years." This opens up a new linn
of thought. James evidently imagine Woutl-nn. Darling
that being a husband is a professi« n
which entitles him to good wages, lie
modestly tixes the value of his services
as a husband at 81,000 per year, and
asks the court to collect the amount for
him. Hut how is a fair estimate to be
placed upon the conjugal value of a hus-
band's services? Beyond any question. cr&t
