Heart to Heart Talk.
Mrs. Frank Leslie solemuly as-
sures us that King Edward is
really in love with his beautiful
Queen Alexandra, having been
softened and converted by her
solicitude and care during his
recent illness. And she adds
that "while he still admires Lily
Langtry and occasionally puts
his stamp of approval on another
choice one, his heart is safe in
the keeping of that regal beauty,
his queen." That's the way to
talk. There is the clearest, most
comprehensive statement ot a
married man's position, we have
read in many days. Let us emu-
late the example of this worthy
king. Let our wives remember
that our hearts are safe in their
keeping, even when we occasion-
ally put the stamp of approval on
another chosen one. Of course
the expression "chosen one" is
merely polite phraseology and
means nothing more than than
a lady picked from the multitude
as worthy of more than custom
ary ardent kindling of the eyes
and turn of graceful compliment,
and the "occasions" need not be
oftener than once in a month save
at the height of the busy season
As for the stamp of approval,
Mrs. Leslie unfortunately does
not say whether it is to be olaced
on the back of the hand, the
verge of the cheek or the tip of
the lips; but this is a minor con-
sideration so long as our hearts
are safe in the keeping of our
regal and loyal wives. Let us
never forget King Edward and
our conjugal duty as expressed in
the old song, "No matter what
you do if your 'art is only true."
What a delightful old world this
is when people come to take
sensible and practical view of it.
