Mucu is said uowadays about woman's rights. A correspondent oí the Maim Fnmier contends for one which cannoi be gainsaid, in the following paragraph: "Perhapa the family muy live on a farm where wood may be liad with littk labor at the right time; but, instead o: the woman may have small ehildren sorae oí' them siek, and but very littk wood, if ano. What oan be more trying for a woman, when she can gftt very littlt time to work about the house, than to be hindered for the want of fuel ? I think if her husband could be placed in her situation for a month it woulcl cure him of being so negleotful about providing good fnol, if he was not past euring. Besidos all the discomfort it looks very shiftless to seo a man that oannot go to Lis work in tho morning because he has to top ani g'et somo wood. And beforo liu retires at night he must get a rail off the feuee to make a fire in thp morning. - Such a man cannot be said tobe a thrifty farmer. I think the woodpile a fair test of the fathera love for the wife and ehildren. If you want domestie peaee and a warm dinnor get some dry wood, put it under cover, make a good fire, and let the tired wife rest awhile. Éomember, she is shut up with the ehildren moro thar. you are, and her mind and bodj need rebt and relaxation.
