With a sick nnd aching head,
And nhc snld-thln cross llttlo woman
"I wonder why girls will wod 1
They wouldn't, I am suro, It thoy reckoned
Tho tilings that a wtfo must benr ;
Thoy novcr dono work ot n household,
They never dono Mother caro."
"Six dozen pieces to wash to-day,
And tho children must go to school,
And every ono knows on washing days

And Bridget Is new to tho work yet.
(Oh, do ir, how my head doei acho ?)
Yet, I shall havo tho dinner to cook
And all ot tho bods to laako."

Father camo In from tho yard i
He kissed tho stck llttlo mother,
"Was suro that her work was hard."
Ho said to tho noisy boys "llo still t
Your mother's not well to-day j"
And when ho bid her "good-by,"
llo -'could kiss the palu nway."
And tho coffco or kiss which was It J
Healed liked a magical charm ,
The spirit of diligent gladness
Was every where on tho farm.
The father worked hard at tho plowing,
Tho mother forgot her pain,
Bridget did well with her washing,
There wasn't a drop of rain.
Tho baking and cloanlng wero over
When tho boys camo homo from school,
Ilaby forgot It was washing day,
And pleasantry broko his rulo j
And nt night tho houso was clear and bright
Tuero was not a thing amiss ;
"TIs only a wlfo," tho father thought,
"Would do as much for a kiss."
And the wlto, sitting down In tho fire-light,
Tho baby asleep at her side,
Her husband chatting and watching her
With a husband's loving pride,
Thought much ot her full and pleasant home,
Ot her children asleep In bed j
And said with a sweet contented laugh,
"No wonder that girls will v ed I"
