Husbands arc largely manufactured
ut or the inw material grown on
farms nnd outlying districts. There
aic some few city varieties but thoy
'lie poor In quality. Tho fnrmnutpuit
Is usually taken to the city eaily in
fife and fed on rum tobacco nnd busi-
ness until ho becomes fat enough lo
kill for the matrimonial market. Ho
Is then led out to the slaughter mid
used thereafter as a basis Tor milli-
uory and dress goods.
Husbands foim one of our chief as-
rets. They uro patient docile under
treatment become Inuiod early lu life
to hard labor mid nre useful lit dinner
parties ami political gatherings.
The American variety differs from
the foreign breeds lu many Important
particulais. lie is more easily donics-
l leafed mid stands any amount o(
abuse without complaint. Theie are
seve"rnl Instances on record where
husbands have slept night after night
In pajamas made by their wives nnd
titarchod under their personal stipervl
Hlon. without mm murine They have
even boon known In rate Instances
to attend chinch regularly.
There aie several kinds of hus-
bands. Tho eaily morning variety Is
very eonipiinlonnble but short-lived.
In some households the silent husband
Is the main feature acquiring this
great gift by long practice. The liter-
nry husband as a rule. Is thin mid
poor and bus his fur rubbed off In
spots and lays his ears well back. The
