Husbands found pleasure In home
life long ago, and when tired, niter
the professional or bus ness employ

greater happiness than to pass their
long, happy evenings with their
wives; or when little voces and pat

Things are different today. Just
as soon as a girl leaves school she
is on the outlook for a "man with
money," no matter how old the gen
tleman may be, If he can give her
diamonds anil those other accessories
for which the woman of today seems
solely to live.
The woman who marries a man In
medium circumstances only would
scorn to "keep house." No, Indeed;
the wants a "good time." She boards,
and here her first troubles commence.
To be boxed up day by day with one
person, with only the one room, or
even suite, except meal hours, to call
their own, would lend the most de
voted couple to the brink of suicide.

It is not the marriage tie that Is in
any way a failure. Why should It be.
more so now, In the enlightened nine
teenth century, than It was In the
days of darkness and superstition?
There can be no reason, except that
possibly we are growing too much
enlightened, educated too much, and
yet too little.
It Is "the people of the people" who
are slipping back, who are satiated
with the wine of pleasure, the people
who do not grow from infancy to
youth slowly, and from youth to age.
In temperate pleasure, but who n re
born babies only to be thrust by their
silly parents into the raps and gowns
or womanhood ere tluir second teeth
While mcn and women live in n
round of 'pleasure, over sensual, over
bearing, having no religion or sense
of decorum, how can wedded love live
in such an atmosphere? If husbands
and wives do not love deeply enough
to live for each other, renouncing the
Wvolties of life for the serme Joys
of home, why marry at all nntil they
have sobered down and feel the need
of rest. ' .
There Is nothing the matter witn
marriage; it Is today ns it has ever
been, but the people are different,
different in their ideas, in their af
fections. In everything, and, forget
ting their own shortcomings, they lay
their grievance on the shoulders or
marriage, and by their own Incom
petence make it a "failure. Hut

built like Dreadnaughts, have been operated on all through
trains. Their easy riding qualities and steadiness of motion
have been widelv praised. The all-steel dining cars too
have distinct advantages over the wooden ones. They are
stronger and steadier, and the act of eating is made more
enjoyable by the smoother movement.
There are also some steel Pullman Cars Combined
Parlor-Smokers and Baggage in the service now. Trav

Some four hundred parlor and sleeping cars will be in use
These steel coaches and cars are the strongest vehicles
ever built for passenger transportation. They are fire proof,
break proof and bend proof. They represent the climax
of safety and the perfection of comfort in railroad travel.
The Pennsylvania Railroad has always been the leader
in all manner of improved equipment as well as in all
methods of making their patrons more comfortable. This
is why it is known and honored as The Standard Railroad
