Solonion Swallow was a bachelor, and somewhat
rusty too ; but isevertheleks he had made up his mind
to one thing—that he'was the only man living who
had acquired any knowledge of the' sublime Mt of
taking care of a wife. 'All the married Men were

are half, was apparently a modest, lamb like crea

not only be a : tractable w,ife but:that 'Mr. Swallow
would need no help from his system to Make her so.
Now Solomon had the forbearance not to interfere
with the lady's.sayings and doings on him wedding
day, nor is it recorded that lie assumed any special
authority on the first night either; but about six o'-
clock the next morning he softly insinuated 'to his
